Masako Nozawa (野沢 雅子 Nozawa Masako, born October 25, 1936) is a Japanese actress and voice actress from Tokyo. Throughout her life, she has been affiliated with Production Baobab, 81 Produce and Office Nozawa; she is currently 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 Goku in the popular anime franchise Dragon Ball, as well as all of Goku's male family relatives except Raditz. 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. She also voiced Doraemon in the 1973 anime, replacing male actress Kōsei Tomita, who voiced the character in the first 26 episodes. In the 1979 anime, she was replaced by Nobuyo Ōyama.

Career

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, Nozawa closed her Talent Agency. A number of voice actors who were affiliated with her agency went on to affiliate with Media Force.
