Megumi Ogata (緒方 恵美 Ogata Megumi?, born June 6, 1965) is a Japanese voice actress and singer from the Tokyo Metropolitan area.[1] As a singer, she goes by the name em:óu. She attended Tōkai University, but left due to lack of interest. She is also best known for voicing Sailor Uranus, Kurama, Tier Harribel from Bleach, and Shinji Ikari, as well as playing Yugi Mutou/Dark Yugi in the original Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh! which aired in 1998 and also Yukito Tsukishiro/Yue in the Japanese version of Cardcaptor Sakura.

Early life and career[edit]

Megumi started out as a musical actress and attended the same classes as Rumi Kasahara and the late Shiho Niiyama. She used to be affiliated with Aoni Production. Because of her husky voice, she is often typecast as either young men and boys or tomboyish females (a famous example of this being Sailor Uranus, a popular character from Sailor Moon known for being a charming tomboy in her civilian form).

It is also because of this that she is sometimes referred as "Aniki" ("Big brother" in Japanese, usually used in gangs) by fans. She married for the second time on April 1, 2004 and appeared on NHK's second anime song marathon on April 30 along with fellow voice actor Ichiro Mizuki.
