Yūko Gotō (後藤 邑子 Gotō Yūko?, born August 28,[2]1975) is a Japanese voice actress who was contracted to Production BAOBAB[2] and is now signed to Axl-One.[1][3] In direct contrast to her cute-and-vulnerable moé typecasting, Yūko in real life is a devotee of biker culture who dresses and acts as such when not working, right down to her motorcycle. This is parodied in the 23rd episode of Lucky Star, in which she appears as a masculine Bōsōzoku-styled caricature of herself called Gotouza.

In 2012, she announced that she is suffering from idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and systemic lupus erythematosus.[4] She is currently performing voice actor activity, while frequently going to the hospital, but recovered on October 4th.

For adult games, she's known as Umi Yanairyū (柳井流海?), Shino Kujo (九条信乃 Kujō Shino?), Kikuko Mita (三田菊子 Mita Kikuko?), Aoi Sakuragi (桜木あおい Sakuragi Aoi?), Sawa Ichii (市井紗和 Ichii Sawa?), Sae Ichii (市井佐絵 Ichii Sae?), Ran Tōno (籐野らん Tōno Ran?) and Mai Tachibana (立花舞 Tachibana Mai?).[5]
