Oh, this is really sad news!

I just read that Kawakami Tomoko, seiyuu actress affiliated with Baobab, just passed away yesterday, June 9, 2011, at 4:45 PM, of ovarian cancer at age 40. It was reported she knew of this since August 2008.

This is shocking and so sad to hear---I've always loved her acting and bubbly personality! She was Akane, Karin, Nozomi and Chihiro from Harukanaru Toki no Naka De series; as well as Chiriko from Fushigi Yuugi, Utena from Revolutionary Girl Utena, and many, many others as well.

I pray for her and her family and loved ones. God bless and be with them.

I never knew of this!
I kind of wonder...if this is another reason why they replaced the whole cast too...
This is really a shock...
I hope she's resting in peace

I'm selling stuff so if you're interested please take a look!

If you want to find more random blabbings of otome games you can look at my livejournal if you want~

I send my deepest condolences to her and her family.

I loved her so much as the Miko through all four games so much that she became my favorite female seiyuu. She always seem to give life into her every character she played and made it so easy for me to bond with her in all the drama CDs.

May she rest in peace.

I just found out about this on Anime Expo AX 2011 website (the fact that I found the news there felt so odd). It's so sad that she past away so soon. I really like her works especially in Chrono Crusade. I hope she's in peace and free of pain now.

Yes, you're right--it probably was one of the factors. I read that she'd requested 21 months of sick leave starting from Aug 2008. Poor Tomoko-san!


But I still think they should've done a 'Neo Haruka' which keeps the old cast still as the 'Haruka' cast and able to be called back for new things if they ever so decide. (Just like they did with Angelique and Neo Angelique)

That's sad to hear. My condolences to her family. FY was one of the first anime I ever saw, as well.

This is a shocker for me. I do remember seeing something about someone had died on Anime Expo's site or twitter in passing, but I was busy with getting things ready for the A-Ex Artist Alley then.

In commemoration, here's a familiar rose garden for our favorite Miko, Duelist, Captain and so much more. =T 0 T=
