Chiba Reiko is a Japanese businesswoman, yoga instructor, voice actress, and former actress, gravure idol, and occasional J-Pop singer. She started her career as a model in 1991 before making her acting debut in the 1992 Super Sentai series "Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger" as Mei/Ptera Ranger. When the series was adapted into the US version Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, it aired in Japan where Chiba, herself, re-dubbed both Ptera Ranger and the US footage of actress Amy Jo Johnson who played her character, now known as Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger. After the end of the series, Chiba made her J-Pop debut on April 7, 1993 as a member of Aurora Gonin Musume. She also did a cameo voice appearance as herself in the anime movie "Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture", performed the voice of Cham Cham in the Samurai Shodown video game series, and had a spot in the nightly radio show Akihabara Young Denkikan. Chiba retired from the entertainment industry in 1995.
When she married Kirihara Tetsuhito in 1998, her legal name became Kirihara Reiko. However, she continues to be known by either her maiden name or "Chibarei" in business and other public contexts. Since her marriage and the birth of a son in 1999, Chiba has adopted a more mature public persona. She is now active as a certified yoga instructor, teaching yoga classes and issuing a series of instructional books and videos. She also continues to pose for publications such as Weekly Playboy. Chiba is also the public face of the corporation Cherrybabe, Inc.
