Nishio Yuka (西尾 夕香) was born on March 31, 1994 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. She is currently affiliated with HiBiKi. She voices Hiromachi Nanami, and is also Morfonica's bassist. Her former stage name was HARUCA.
Yuka started learning the violin when she was in kindergarten, and in elementary school she was part of an orchestra and participated in competitions. She practiced it for over 10 years before realizing in ninth grade that she likes singing. She then asked and got permission from her mother to quit playing the violin, and started going to karaoke 3-5 times a week.
On October 16, 2016, Yuka (who still went by the name HARUCA) made her major singing debut with the single "Eien no Kotae" under the label Kino Music. The song was used as the ending theme for the anime Seikaisuru Kado. On April 2, 2019, she passed HiBiKi's audition during S Inc., HiBiKi and Ace Crew Entertainment's joint audition, became affiliated with them and changed her stage name to Nishio Yuka.
She debuted as a voice actor by voicing a minor character in the anime Blend S.
Yuka is also known for voicing:
- Rinku Aimoto in the D4DJ franchise
- Yuu Higashiyama in Rebirth for you
- Ellis Maclaine in Shinka no Mi: Shiranai Uchi ni Kachigumi Jinsei
