Ami Onuki (Japanese: 大貫 亜美, Hepburn: Ōnuki Ami, born September 18, 1973) is a Japanese singer, musician and a member of J-pop group PUFFY, along with Yumi Yoshimura.


Ami is the animated counterpart of Ami Onuki. She is one of the members with Yumi Yoshimura and one of the two main titular protagonists of the series. She is voiced by Janice Kawaye.

Background

Career

She has co-hosted several Japanese TV shows with the "cool" half of PUFFY, Yumi Yoshimura, including the talk show Pa-Pa-Pa-Pa-Puffy, part of a morning show called Saku-Saku, and the 2006 series Hi Hi Puffy Bu, in which Ami and Yumi perform one given task each week to comedic effect.

Personal life

She married Teru, the vocalist of the rock band Glay and announced the birth of their baby girl on her blog in March 2003. On PUFFY's 2007 greatest hits album Hit & Fun, Ami is pictured both on the CD cover and within the CD insert clearly wearing both an engagement and wedding ring on her left ring finger, and she continues to wear her wedding ring in pictures on the PUFFY Staff Diary.

Legacy

On Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, she is vocally portrayed by Japanese-American actress Janice Kawaye. In the show, her hair is pink and done in the classic odango atama hairstyle famously first worn by Usagi Tsukino from the Sailor Moon media franchise.

Instruments

Ami can play:

  • Guitar
  • Drums (PUFFY SPIKE Daisakusen - Owaranai Uta)
  • Harmonica (Kore ga Watashi no Ikiru Michi)
  • Timpani (Jet Tour '98 - Ai no Shirushi)
  • Trumpet (Cosmic*Wonder)

Personality

Ami is known for her girly-girl and goody-two-shoes personality. As the optimist, Ami always looks on the bright side of things and finds a solution to every situation she is involved in. She loves rainbows, bunnies (cute animals), sparkles and anything else typically pretty, which is the opposite of Yumi, who likes things more targeted to a tomboyish and unisex demographic.

She also cares a lot about how other people think, and tries not to be selfish. This makes Ami willing to help everyone and find solutions for anyone she cares. On the other side, however, she also hides her real mind and opinions in order to never disappoint others.

In the pilot, she was depicted being less comical.

Physical Appearance

Original series

Bubbles is a slender, fair-skinned girl with blonde hair in two pigtails in a neat, curved fashion with blue hair ties and light blue eyes. Her dresses are light blue with a black stripe in the middle, and she wears white tights and black Mary Jane shoes. During the first short, after Fuzzy Lumpkins hits her with a meat gun, her right pigtail becomes a chicken leg.

Powers

Ami can play her drums with her bare feet, as seen in both "Ami Goes Bad" and "Mean Machine." Some episodes such as "Julie AmiYumi" shows that she is also capable of playing electric guitar like Yumi, who is main guitarlist of the band. Ami can crush a handheld gaming device with her hand as seen in "The Legend of Mei Pie". She is also a ninja like Yumi, though not as skillful as Yumi. Ami can also throw things far away as seen in "Gridiron Maidens", because of always pounding on the drums. She is also capable of performing hypnosis, which was revealed in the episode "Olé!" when Ami and Yumi team up to hypnotize El Diablo, the bull that the mayor of Los Gatos Feos made them fight.

Some episodes and intermission music videos shows that Ami is capable of driving various vehicles, such as her own scooter, the tour bus and a prop plane.
