Yuu Asakawa (born March 20, 1975) is a Japanese 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 hosted a web-based show called Otaku Verse Zero with Patrick Macias for a few years till the show stopped updating on 2013, introducing Japanese subculture to English speakers. Which means, yes, she had to speak English most of the time (had to speak Japanese to deal with some natives). She also streams games like Dark Souls. In June 2020, she stopped using Youtube and has since moved her streaming activities to a Twitch channel.

Often cast with Yūichi Nakamura, Tomokazu Sugita, Kaori Nazuka, Hiroshi Kamiya and others.
