Noriko Hidaka (born May 31, 1962) is a Japanese voice actress, most famous as Mikage Matsunaga (Miracle Girls), Minami Asakura (Touch (1981)), Akane Tendo (Ranma ), Satsuki Kusakabe (My Neighbor Totoro), Near (Death Note), Sēta Sojiro (Rurouni Kenshin), Jean (Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water), Kikyo (Inuyasha), Masumi Sera (Case Closed), Erica Fontaine (Sakura Wars), and Noriko Takaya (GunBuster).

Hidaka was a former child actress who went onto becoming an on-screen Idol Singer durning her teenage years. But her popularity never improved, and was out of the spotlight for a few years; it wasn't until she took note of a fan indicating her voice as "quite unique," that she considered transferring into the voice acting field. She had a good range from Genki Girls to cute boys to Yamato Nadeshikos.

Happily Married.
