Minako Kotobuki(寿 美菜子) is a young (born in 1991!) seiyuu most known for her role as Tsumugi Kotobuki in ''Manga/KOn''. As such, she's often selected for reserved, formal [[TheOjou Ojou-sama]] roles. Her real-life personality somewhat matches this--when she was little she auditioned for local TV dramas and plays but was occasionally turned down because she seemed "too mature" for the role.

Has a [[RelationshipVoiceActor relationship]] with Creator/AkiToyosaki, who voices Yui Hirasawa from the same series.

Part of the idol group Music/{{Sphere}} with HarukaTomatsu, Creator/AkiToyosaki and Creator/AyahiTakagaki. Interestingly, all four ladies featured in the Japanese dub for ''Film/SuckerPunch'', with Minako as the lead character Baby Doll.

She's originally from Kobe, and still remembers taking shelter in her family car during the 1995 earthquake. (She was only three then, but [[NightmareFuel such an experience]] would likely leave a lasting impression.) During radio shows she sometimes shows off her native KansaiDialect. Saying of radio shows, she has her own radio show called "Minako Kotobuki's Laugh♥Rough".
