Yuu Asakawa is a voice actress known for her deep and calm voice, often getting typecast as Aloof Dark Haired Girls
or Statuesque Stunners
(in fact, she's not quite one in Real Life
at all, especially the tall part — she's only 5'3''). As a result, her characters usually overlap with Ms. Fanservice
and it's what makes her famous.
She was once married to another well-known voice actor, Showtaro Morikubo
. Unfortunately, they quickly divorced.
She keeps her twitter
updated, in English no less (and increasingly good English). Later, she added an English-language Facebook page
. She also hosts a web-based show called Otaku Verse Zero
with Patrick Macias, introducing Japanese sub-culture to English speakers. Which means, yes, she had to speak English most of the time (had to speak Japanese to deal with some natives).
