Thread: Yuko Mizutani Has Passed

    Yuko Mizutani Has Passed

    After a night of great news, unfortunately we have to end on some very sad news.

    Image Thumbnail

    Voice actress Yuko Mizutani has passed away due to complications from breast cancer according to Oricon.

    To Digimon fans Mizutani would be best known as the voice of Sora in Digimon Adventure and Zero-Two in the original Japanese language version. She also voiced Otamamon and Taichi and Hikari's mother, among a few other roles (it appears in at least one episode she also played Koushiro's mother.)

    She had a long history as a voice actor playing such well loved characters like Mihoshi from Tenchi, Sakiko Sakura in Chibi Maruko-chan, Buffy in the Japanese dub of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Minnie Mouse in various titles, and many other roles.

    She was 51 years old.

    I don't even have words. Cancer has taken away two important figures in Digimon (three, if we take into account a dub actor in the latinamerican version). That sickness is horrible.

    Good Lord... I will admit I myself have not yet fully moved on from Wada Kouji's passing and now this.

    This.. This is too much to bear and even fathom as of the moment.

    ...I could only express heartfelt condolences to her loved ones and close friends. As well as pray, and wish utmost happiness and peace for her soul.

    Geeze, I think almost every major entertainment industry death lately has been cancer.

    Oh man. Not another one. How many Digimon veterans is cancer going to take from us? Age 51? That's way too young to go.

    Though, did she voice Taichi's and Hikari's mother in tri. as well, or was something else playing that role?

    She was also presently voicing Ikuko Tsukino, mother of Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon, in Sailor Moon Crystal.

    From what I could tell, Piyomon's VA took over as Taichi/Hikari's mother.
