Sad news today. Tomoko Kawakami passed away yesterday afternoon in Japan after a long illness (which was just recently confirmed to be cancer). As you may or may not know, Kawakami was the seiyuu that brought Rosette to life in the Chrono Crusade anime (as well as being the voice of Utena and several other roles).

I have mixed feelings on the CC anime of course, but I always loved the voice cast and thought it was cool that Rosette got Utena's voice actress. Rosette's final scenes are going to be even more painful to watch now. The industry's lost a great actress. :(

Oh man, I know, I recognized her name when I was scrolling through my RSS feed and when I read the full headline I felt like I'd been hit with a brick...

Same here and now that throws our opportunity for having a CC remake out the window too because no one could do a Rosette like she did =TTATT= /sobs forever

asdfghjkl; they could probably recast Rosette if that ever happened...one of the articles I read said that some of her roles were recast when she went into the hospital a few years ago. It'd be really sad, though. orz
