Ms You Inoue passed away February 28, 2003, 9:29 a.m. Ms Inoue's physical condition deteriorated due to cancer in the winter of 2001. She had an operation sometime in 2002 and was rehospitalized in December 2002. Her condition changed suddenly during the latter part of February 2003 and she died February 28 of cancer (lung edema) aged 56 years. A private funeral with family and close friends only was held in Tokyo on March 6. We pray for her happiness in the next world...
Ms Inoue was a seiyuu whose voice talents spanned a considerable range. Consider Ran of Urusei Yatsura, which required Ms Inoue to provide a soft, cutesy voice when Ran was being coy, and moments later build up to a powerful, angry voice with an edge to it. Ms Inoue could also perform the serious, mature voice of Kanuka of Patlabor, and give an edge of excitement at the right moment for comedic or dramatic effect. The ultimate example of Ms Inoue's talents is Yuzuha in the second Tenchi Muyo movie. Yuzuha is a very emotional character and provided quite an opportunity for Ms Inoue to demonstrate her voice acting ability.
