Masako Nozawa (野沢 雅子 Nozawa Masako?) Masako Tsukada (married name 塚田 雅子?, Tsukada Masako) (born on october 25, 1936 in the Tokyo Metropolitan area, Japan) is a Japanese voice actress and actress affiliated with Aoni Production. Her husband, Masaaki Tsukada was also a voice actor.

As a voice actress, she is best known for the role of Son Goku in the original Japanese version of the popular anime franchise Dragon Ball, both as a child and an adult, as well as Goku's two sons and father. She has also voiced Tetsuro Hoshino (Galaxy Express 999) and Kitaro (GeGeGe no Kitaro, first and second series). In addition, she has also voiced two separate characters named "Hiroshi"; a character in Dokonjō Gaeru, and the character known in the U.S. as "Pidge" in Hyakujūō Golion.

Career[edit]

Nozawa made her movie debut as a child actor at the age of 3. Throughout her career as a voice actress, she has performed many male roles (most notably as all the male members of Goku's family in all three Dragon Ball anime series, with the exception of Raditz), leading Japanese fans to give her the nickname "The Eternal Boy". These days, however, she prefers the roles of elderly woman characters, although she continues to perform other roles (including young boys) occasionally. On April 1, 2006, she resigned from 81 Produce to establish Office Nozawa. In 2010, Nosawa closed her Talent Agency. The number of voice actors who were affiliated with her agency went on to affiliate with Media Force.
