This article is about a/an actress in the Super Sentai series.

Mao Ichimichi (市道 真央 Ichimichi Mao) is a Japanese actress and gravure idol known for her role as Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. She would reappear as Luka Millfy a few years later in the next anniversary series Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger. She has also voiced GekiYellow in Super Hero Taisen and Pasco in Ressha Sentai ToQger: The Movie - Galaxy Line SOS, credited under a new stage name, M • A • O. Under the same name, she later voiced Raptor 283 in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger and Kishiryu Chibigaroo in Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger.

She has since done several anime series under that name, including Digimon Adventure tri. (along with Gokaiger co-star Junya Ikeda), in which she voices Hikari Yagami. Her former stage name was Rio Minami (南 梨央 Minami Rio).

Along with her co-star Yui Koike (Ahim de Famille/Gokai Pink), she hosted the Super Hero Max NaviIcon-crosswiki special, aired to introduce the Super Hero Max 2012Icon-crosswiki annual event.

Notes

  • Mao Ichimichi is the first actress to be two Rangers as part of the main team and the first to play two main-team Rangers (not counting 6th or auxiliary Rangers) since Jyunichi Haruta (GoggleBlack/DynaBlack). One fairly major difference is that Raptor 283 only requires Mao to voice over a suit actor in a suit for both transformed and untransformed scenes while Jyunichi was required on set for untransformed scenes.
    • She is also the first actress whose rangers from different series meet face-to-face in the flesh (second overall after Kenji Ohba).
  • Due to her role as Raptor 283 in Lupinranger VS Patranger VS Kyuranger, she is the only Gokaiger actor to continue to appear in Super Sentai alongside at least one actor from each Sentai (as their Ranger) through Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger, though she didn't necessarily share a scene with them, while none of the others have appeared with a Lupinranger actor.
  • Ciara Hanna (who played Ichimichi's counterpart Gia Moran) expressed interest in playing a potential counterpart to Raptor 283 should Kyuranger be adapted into a Power Rangers season. If this does happen, it would make Hanna the first Power Ranger actress to play two different roles whose counterpart had also shared the same actress.
