Creator: Emiri Katou

Emiri Katou is a seiyuu born in 1983. Perhaps her most famous role is of the Tsundere and straight girl Kagami Hiiragi of Lucky Star, for which she won the Best New Seiyuu award at the second annual Seiyuu Awards. (Fittingly, her co-star Aya Hirano had won the previous year.)

Garnered a little bit of controversy on the Internets in 2008 for giving an interview to a Communist-affiliated magazine.

She hasn't done much work with her "sister" Kaori Fukuhara (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 Fall 2011 Anime Season, they both starred on Ad-Lib Anime Laboratory, an 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, rather poorly-aligned teeth; and when some "fans" mocked her for it quite harshly, she actually considered quitting as a seiyuu. (Note how she's trying not to show her teeth in that photo.) She rectified this in 2010-11 by getting some extensive orthodontic work, but it cost her a pretty yen, and all because her "fans" on 2Chan pushed her into it.

The poor lady — a fan of the Magical Girl genre — cried hard when she realized what kind of character her role in Puella Magi Madoka Magica is. Admittedly, that information was withheld by Gen Urobuchi. Goddamnit Urobutcher. 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 the 6th annual seiyuu awards for Best Supporting Character by, you guessed it, Kyubey.

On top of all that, in 2013 she was chosen to voice Fluttershy in the Japanese dub of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Hoo boy, let the memes begin.
