The talent agency 81 Produce announced on Monday that seiyuu Miyu Matsuki died on October 27 due to an illness. A private funeral was held according to the family's wishes. Matsuki turned 38 on September 14.

Matsuki had been hospitalized earlier this year from bouts of pneumonia. In a blog post written on her 38th birthday, Matsuki expressed her gratitude to all the staff, fellow seiyuu, and fans who have supported her. "I am thankful to have been born," she wrote.

Matsuki debuted as a seiyuu in 1998 under her real name, Mieko Matsuki, in the PlayStation game Mikagura Shoujo Tantei-dan before later adopting the current pseudonym. Her first regular anime role was as Hitomi Onodera in the 2002 comedy series Shichinin no Nana.

Born in Kure, Hiroshima Prefecture, Matsuki was a graduate of Hiroshima Girls' Academy. Her parents had opposed her desire to become a seiyuu but allowed her to enroll in Keio University in Tokyo after passing the entrance examination. Upon graduation, she enrolled in voice acting school. Her Hiroshima dialect was used in the role as Chimo Yakusa in the Tamayura series.

Matsuki joined 81 Produce in 2002. She was a regular on various seiyuu radio programs, such as Sakurai Koubou with Takahiro Sakurai and Asami Waragai, and Cherry Bell with Sakurai and Kenichi Suzumura.

Notable roles included Yoshinoya-sensei in Hidamari Sketch and its sequels, Misaki Sagisawa in D.C.: Da Capo, Cthuko in Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, and Magical Sapphire in Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya.

Matsuki most recently starred as Anna Nishikinomiya in Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai. She was also previously announced as the voice of Charlotte Dimandius in the upcoming Hundred anime adaptation.

Her role as Anna was what we can consider as her last hurrah.
Those who absolutely loved Shimoneta were lucky people to have witnessed her most recent performance. (And yes, I know of her voice role in Tales of Zestiria.)

As someone who knew her as Cthuko and Yoshinoya-sensei, it's painful to hear of her fate. She has always been full of energy in her roles.

A life that meets an abrupt end at such a young age with so many people who send out their love is always painful news.

To die so young like that is so sad. I don't think anybody could've voiced Anna or Kuuko better than she did. RIP.

she voiced many of my favorite characters like Anna, Cthuko, and Hisui. I was hoping she'll recover but...this is just sad.

Thank you for voicing my favorite characters. You had a lot of future ahead of you but you died too young. R.I.P

Her voice will be really missed. So many characters to mention...

Now I'm wondering who will voice Magical Sapphire on the incoming another season of Prisma Illya. Such tears.

Damn, I really liked her. She had a distinct voice and was pretty good in the roles I knew her in.

I know she'd been getting treatment for a while, but I'm wondering if some of it was caused due to exhaustion from overworking :/. It feels like she probably should've gone on hiatus earlier than she did. But that's Japan for you, I guess. All speculation, of course, but even just getting pneumonia seems a bit strange to me. It's frustrating when they don't release details, but I completely understand why...

Whatever she had, I hope it wasn't too painful for her and that she had a peaceful death.

Wow, really? That fucking sucks. I literally just finished Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F. She will be missed. I really love Cthuko. It pains me that I will never hear that voice again.

:(

I hope it was a quick and painless death. She was too young.

I admit, I am not familiar with all those seiyuus so when I heard this news, I thought I probably never watch any anime voice by her but when I check her work, holy sh!t. I was shocked to found out she voice Cthuko, Isumi and Anna. RIP. So young.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

She hasn't had a Twitter account since September 2014. I wanna say the seiyuu you're thinking of is Hayami Saori, but I could be completely wrong.

Rest in peace!

Honestly this news came as a really really huge surprise to me, because for some reason I often come across her page on MAL for the past couple months.. I never thought she would so suddenly pass away.. Gone too young.. It's really inspiring that she insisted on her seiyuu career despite the opposition from her parents. Again, I hope she could rest in peace. ):

Cant even begin to describe how heart broken I am over this.

She was so young and talented. This is devastating.

She voiced a lot of great characters. Everybody who watched Nyaruko loves Kuuko, and everyone who watched Shimoneta love Anna.

God only know what they're going to do to replace Sapphire in the next season of Fate Kaleid...and another Shimoneta if that ever happens. Her voice was too one of a kind.

She had so much good work coming up too.

Fucking hell. I cried like a little bitch when I read the first article a couple hours ago.
