Has the voice of a Yamato Nadeshiko, but is a damn competent biker in Real Life. She's also a fluent English-speaker, which means gets cast as foreign characters a fair bit. (She studied at a university in Nagoya to be an English translator, but dropped out to go into TV production work.)
Goto-san first gained recognition in her Yandere role as Kaede in Shuffle. However, with that said, her roles in Suzumiya Haruhi and Hidamari Sketch shot her to fame and basically made her the go-to lady for sweet, kind-hearted ladies who may (or may not) have something up their sleeves. Of course, considering her Badass Biker real life background, they make fun of it in Lucky Star. Apparently likes Fist of the North Star and her favorite character is Souther/Thouther, which led to her pseudonym in Lucky Star: Gothouther-sama.
Recently appointed as one of the heads of the Hokuto Musou game. She is also known for forming the 'Forever 29' movement, similar to Kikuko Inoue's 'Forever 17', only that, you know, say 'Always 29 years old.'
She recently got sent to the hospital due to an autoimmune disease occurring in her heart, lung and vessels. She will be on a hiatus for two and a half months. We wish her the best and God speed.
