Awww too sad. I know she didn't have many roles lately, but I liked her. Also the industry looses the smallest seiyuu I know with just 138cm.

Another one bites the dust I guess.

I knew her for Chisame and Kanaria. She did well with both of those roles, so some of the comments above are really uncalled for.


Agreed. One reason I like Kanaria is because of the voice.
I don't really remember about Chisame though, maybe because she has little screen time in the anime.

Chisame is actually a big role in the OVA.

That's saddening to hear.

I really enjoyed her performance as Cocona Vatel & Sarly Planck.

I wonder did she explain why she left in that farewell message.

Since she doesn't have that much roles and non airing atm I guess that voice ain't working right.

She didn't seem to do too much. Tough luck I guess?

Yup. Pretty much like a few days ago with another someone who had an astonishing "career".
