In 2017, Ōnishi played the role of Vignette April Tsukinose in the anime series Gabriel DropOut; she and co-stars Miyu Tomita, Naomi Ōzora, and Kana Hanazawa performed the series' opening theme "Gabriel Drop Kick" and ending theme "Hallelujah Essaim".[17] She also voiced Muramasa Senju in Eromanga Sensei,[18] Marie Bell Breguet in Clockwork Planet,[19] and Kuro in Restaurant to Another World.[20]

In 2018, she played the role of Hiyori Jūjō in Katana Maidens ~ Toji No Miko.[21] She also voiced Ruka Irokawa in Comic Girls,[22] and Beelzebub in As Miss Beelzebub Likes.[23]
