Masako Katsuki (勝生 真沙子 Katsuki Masako?, née Masako Shiono (塩野 雅子 Shiono Masako?), born October 15, 1958) is a Japanese voice actress who was born in Hachinohe, Aomori. Formerly from Theater Echo, she is now employed by 81 Produce.


Following her debut in Shiroi Kiba: White Fang Monotagari as the role of Mary Scott,[1] Katsuki has lent her voice to several notable anime, Japanese-dubbed films and tv series, games, drama CDs, narration, and commercials. Some of Katsuki's best known roles are Maria Von Trapp (Trapp Ikka Monogatari), Reccoa Londe (Zeta Gundam), Maya Kitajima (Glass Mask), Masuyo Ikari (High School! Kimengumi), Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune (Sailor Moon series), and Tsunade (Naruto).

In January 2006, Katsuki appeared as a guest on Oh! Naruto Nippon, a radio talk show hosted by Junko Takeuchi in which she chats with the other voice actors of Naruto. Aside from doing an oiroke no jutsu and a special message, Katsuki also gave Takeuchi some advice on golf (a favorite hobby).

81 Produce member Megumi Toyoguchi mentioned in her official blog that the voice actor she really admires and wishes to aim for is Katsuki herself. In addition, Toyoguchi said that her favorite roles of Katsuki are the heroines Maria and Tiara.[2]

In 2009, Katsuki narrated the program Bakusho Mondai no Nippon no Kyoyo (爆笑問題のニッポンの教養?).
