Biography

Hondo was born in Aichi Prefecture on March 6, 1996.[1][2] She had an interest in anime from a young age, in particular the Naruto series.[3] She became interested in acting and modelling after an incident during her fifth year of elementary, when a woman came close to her saying she has "a face that goes well with makeup".[2][3] Not knowing immediately what that should mean, she made some research on her own later, and came to believe she was told she has a face suitable for an actress or a model.[2][3] She would then start auditioning for various acting and modelling jobs, but she did not initially consider voice acting as an option.[3] As she had a desire to perform in front of people, upon entering high school, she joined her school's theater club.[2]

While in high school, Hondo acted in school plays and also participated in activities such as swimming, basketball, soft tennis, and softball.[1] While in her third year of school, one of her instructors was a radio personality, and her experiences with them and the club influenced her to decide to become a voice actor.[3] In pursuit of this career, she enrolled at the Japan Narration Actor Institute.[1][2] After completing her training, she became afiliated with the voice acting agency I'm Enterprise.[4] She made her voice acting debut in 2015, playing minor roles in series such as Aoharu × Machinegun.[1][5] Later that year, she was cast in her first main role as Kokoro Yotsuba, the protagonist of the anime series Kamisama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama.[1][6]

In 2016, Hondo played the roles of Kazane Aoba in Keijo!!!!!!!! and Yae Kugayama in Girlish Number;[7] she and the other main cast members of Girlish Number also performed the series' opening theme "Bloom" and ending theme "Ima wa Mijikashi Yumemiyo Otome" (今は短し夢見よ乙女).[8] The following year, she played the roles of Hikari Takanashi in Interviews with Monster Girls,[9] Kon Tatsumi in Urara Meirocho,[10] and Minoa Asagaya in Anime-Gataris.[11] In 2018, she played the roles of Kanami Etō in Katana Maidens ~ Toji No Miko,[12] Koyume Koizuka in Comic Girls,[13] Hitomi Mishima in Hinamatsuri,[14] Kohaku Tsukishiro in Iroduku: The World in Colors,[15] and Sakura Minamoto in Zombie Land Saga.[16]
