Christelle Ciari (クリステル・チアリ) (born 12 January 1976) is a Japanese actress, voice actress, and recording artist from Nishinomiya. She has worked for Horipro and Aoni Production since 2005 and has been known to speak three languages (Japanese, English, and French).


Between 1998 and 2001, Ciari appeared on NHK's weekday morning children's program entitled Eigou de Asbobo; during that time, she sung a variety of children's songs in English and was nicknamed "Sister Chris" (クリスおねえさん, Kurisu Onesan). She would later go on to appear in a segment of TBS' morning information program Express which was entitled "Eigou da Tomo Ali" (英語で智アリ). Her first major voice acting role would be the voice of the narrator of the short-form anime Ocha-Ken, which ran on Kids Station from October 2003 to March 2004.

In addition, since the early 2000s, Ciari has provided English-language prerecorded station announcements that are present on many Japanese railway lines; some of those announcements have been used in the Densha de Go! video game series. She was formerly a lecturer at the defunct University of Creation; Art, Music & Social Work.[1]
