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.
