Yūko Gotō (後藤 邑子, Gotō Yūko, born August 28[2] in Aichi Prefecture) is a Japanese voice actress and singer who was contracted to Production Baobab[2] and is now signed to Axlone.[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 character 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 4.
