Yuu Asakawa

Voice Actress

Yuu

Yuu Yuu Asakawa is a Japanese seiyuu (or voice actress). Yuu is the voice of Crypton Future Media’s Vocaloid, Megurine Luka, providing all her vocal samples. Yuu is also the co-host of the Internet web show Otaku Verse Zero, alongside Otaku USA editor-in-chief Patrick Macias.

A talented veteran voice actress, Yuu has been performing for over seventeen years for some of the most popular anime and video games. Among her many roles in anime are Motoko Aoyama from Love Hina, Sakaki from Azumanga Daioh, Rider from Fate/stay night, Yuuki Mitani from Hikaru no Go, and Jura Basil Elden from Vandread. Yuu’s video games roles include Lebreau from the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Eime in Baten Kaitos, Nel Zelpher in Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, and various characters for the Super Robot Wars franchise of games.

Aside from her extensive voice acting resume, she also voiced a character on an English lesson CD. She is recently increasing her job in English, and starting to gain more attention outside Japan. As a consequence, she hopes Luka will someday become the most popular of the Vocaloids, even bigger than Hatsune Miku!
