Creator / Taeko Kawata
Taeko Kawata is a seiyuu born in 1965. She is best known by fans from across the globe as the Japanese voice of Amy Rose in the Sonic the Hedgehog
series. Because of her child-like vocal range, she is often cast as young girls or mini moe-type characters that hadn't reached puberty
or some that are cheery at times
(compare Satomi Koorogi
, Mika Kanai
, Ikue Ohtani
, Yuri Shiratori
and Yukari Tamura
in this example).
Not to say that one of her only roles, she occasionally plays against her own type
as being shy
or being emotionless
. It seems Amy's moe-like persona is Taeko's signature move, as some of her other characters have the same persona.
She occasionally appears in some anime with Junichi Kanemaru
(whom she worked with
in the Sonic games), and has a Twitter account.
