Tanaka Minami (田中 美海, born January 22, 1996) is a Japanese seiyuu from Kanagawa Prefecture. She expressed the desire to be a seiyuu from a very young age and declared her intent when graduating from elementary school. While she wanted to be a seiyuu, she ended up learning to also sing and dance when getting her first main role as the cute, but hungry Minami Katayama in an idol anime called Wake Up, Girls! (2014+) where she also performed in a seiyuu idol group also named Wake Up, Girls! (2014 to 2018). A few years later she was regularly getting main roles and while not having a solo career, sang many songs as characters and for theme songs. She again became a member of a seiyuu idol group Franchouchou as Lily Hoshikawa in the anime franchise Zombieland Saga (2018+). She is a member of the seiyuu idol unit MUG-MO (2021+) related to the anime Let's Make a Mug Too (2021+). She is also a member of the seiyuu idol trio NonSugar (2016+) alongside Yamashita Nanami (fellow WUGer) and Omori Nichika related to the anime PriPara (2014+).

In 2015, she won a Special Award at the 9th Seiyu Awards for Wake Up, Girls! along with fellow members Yoshioka Mayu and Aoyama Yoshino. In 2017, she won the Best Rookie Actress at the 11th Seiyu Awards for her portrayal in Schwarzesmarken (2016) along side Ozawa Ari and Senbongi Sayaka.

While not appearing in many of the Fate series anime, she is well known for playing the character Nitocris in the Fate/Grand Order games. She also became good friends with seiyuu Rie Takahashi when they did a Fate/Grand Order related radio show called Chaldea Radio Station starting in January 2017 and is still going as of mid 2021. The radio show was renamed Chaldea Radio Station PLUS in Spring 2019 when another seiyū Rumi Okubo (known for playing Chinatsu Yoshikawa in Yuru Yuri and Nana in Talentless Nana) was added as an alternate/fill-in host.

In 2020, she started a solo 30 minute streaming radio show "Maybe Minami Tanaka! Everyone's House" (『田中美海のかもん!みなはうす』) on Super! A & G +. She previously appeared weekly as one of the seiyuu radio hosts of 『A&G NEXT BREAKS FIVE STARS』 (2015 to 2019)
