EmiriKatou is a {{seiyuu}} born in 1983. Perhaps her most famous role is of the {{Tsundere}} and [[{{StraightMan}} straight girl]] Kagami Hiiragi of ''Anime/LuckyStar'', for which she won the Best New Seiyuu award at the second annual Seiyuu Awards. (Fittingly, her co-[[StealthPun star]] Creator/AyaHirano had won the previous year.)

Garnered a little bit of controversy on the Internets in 2008 [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2008/07/16/lucky-star-seiyuu-flies-red-banner for giving an interview to a Communist-affiliated magazine]].

She hasn't done much work with her "sister" Creator/KaoriFukuhara (''Lucky Star'''s Tsukasa), but the two are fittingly good friends, and in 2010 did some musical jam sessions together with Emiri on drums and Kaori on bass. (Apparently both used to play those respective instruments in high school.) In the Fall2011AnimeSeason, they both starred on [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-09-05/experimental-ad-lib-anime-kenkyusho-to-air-in-october Ad-Lib Anime Laboratory]], an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin experimental series in which the dialog was ad-libbed and recorded first]], with the animation produced around it subsequently.

She also used to have...umm, [[BritishTeeth rather poorly-aligned teeth]]; and when some "[[FanDumb fans]]" mocked her for it quite harshly, ''[[TearJerker she actually considered quitting as a seiyuu]]''. (Note how she's trying not to show her teeth in that photo.) [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2011/08/26/seiyuu-fans-weep-as-emiri-kato-can-finally-smile-again/ She rectified this]] in 2010-11 by getting some extensive orthodontic work, but it cost her a pretty yen, [[TheWoobie and all because her "fans" on 2Chan pushed her into it]].

The poor lady -- a fan of the MagicalGirl genre -- [[HeroicBSOD cried hard]] when she realized [[FauxAffablyEvil what kind of character]] her role in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is. Admittedly, that information was withheld by [[TrollingCreator Gen Urobuchi]]. [[MemeticMutation Goddamnit Urobutcher]]. [[PluckyGirl Despite all that, Emiri still did her job admirably and once the anime concluded, considers all of the hatred for Kyubey to be praises for her]].

Thanks to that, she has won [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-03-01/6th-annual-seiyu-awards-winners-announced the 6th annual seiyuu awards]] for Best Supporting Character by, [[NeverLiveItDown you guessed it]], Kyubey.

On top of all ''that'', in 2013 she was [[http://bhsdesk.tumblr.com/post/45678387315/japanesefluttershy chosen to voice Fluttershy in the Japanese dub]] of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Hoo boy, let the [[MemeticMutation memes]] begin.
