rest in peace. she voiced kurumu's hot mom ageha in rosario + vampire capu 2 (which is one of my favorite anime/manga), meroko from fushigi yuugi (another one of my favorites), kurumi from kimaqgure orange road (another favorite), and kozue from Revolutionary girl utena, as well as tellu from sailor moon. she was a really talented voice actress, and i'm sad she passed. may you rest in peace. forever a legend in our hearts.

It really sounds like a bad joke. I still can't deal with it

Rest In Peace, Chieko Honda

Also, it really sucks how good seiyuus always dies due to cancer. The hell is going on in Japan?

Another great voice actor passed away. While I haven't watched much, I'll always remember her as Puru and Ennil. She really had a great voice. I enjoyed the little of L-Gaim I watched mostly because of her role as Amu.

Rest in Peace, Honda Chieko, voice of the greatest loli of all time.

Sad to see talent go but 49 is not that young..

You guys act like half a century of life is no big deal.

If we were talking about normal people, yeah. But Japan is the country with the highest life expectancy, so 49 is, in fact, rather young for Japanese.
