Another of those seiyuu who has a following due to her unique voice, particularly her coarse voice which makes her one of the more famous go-to seiyuu for Bishonen characters, or perhaps the first famous seiyuu for her Cross-Dressing Voices tendencies (a trend followed by ladies like Romi Paku and Junko Minagawa). Most famous for her role as Shinji Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Haruka Tenoh in Sailor Moon, and her debut as Kurama in Yu Yu Hakusho. One very notable exception is her being the very willowy and girly Princess Emeraude, though she made up for it by later portraying the very bishonen Eagle in the next season.
She's not very active in the seiyuu scene, as after marrying a man 14 years her junior (and making some fangirls go WUT? for not being a lesbian), she juggles a singing career with motherhood. However, she has a recent burst of roles in Special A (as Kei's boyish-looking father), Dark Action Girl Harribel in Bleach and (once again) Shinji Ikari in Rebuild of Evangelion.
