Her name is pronounced Nishio Yuuka.
I’ve omitted the second “u” to stay consistent with the romanization in her agency profile.
Note: Her agency profile now lists her as “Nishio Yuuka”, though the URL is “nishio_yuka”.

Oyu previously performed under the stage name HARUCA.
She joined HiBiKi in April 2019 after successfully passing the S・HiBiKi・Ace Crew Joint Audition along with Hazuki Himari and Kagami Karin.
Her name change and entry into HiBiKi were announced on 2019.04.02.
The HARUCA Twitter account has since been purged of all tweets except for the ones leading up to the transition.
Her Twitter handle is 240y_k.
2 = ni, 4 = shi, 0 = o
y_k is for “Yuka”, with an underscore for the “u”.
She originally joked not to use Oyu (hot water) as her nickname, so it naturally became her nickname. Shirahata Ichiho tweeted “Oyu” at her and Oyu replied with a water faucet emoji… She immediately prepared puns to accompany her new nickname. Despite her nickname, she takes showers rather than baths to save water.
Together with fellow HiBiKi seiyuu Shindou Amane, they form #Oyunesu! Oyu is a combination of their nicknames, Oyu + Amanesu. They host episodes of HiBiKi StYle together, and Oyu has taken to calling these “OyunestYle“! Both of them bond over their taste in rock music!
Oyu Band Picks: UNISON SQUARE GARDEN, 9mm Parabellum Bullet, Ling Tosite Sigure, Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas, Kami-sama, I have noticed, HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR
Amanesu Band Picks: MAN WITH A MISSION, POLKADOT STINGRAY, KEYTALK, Crossfaith
