Voice acting weekly until the age of 89 is an impressive feat though I only knew her from Ranma and FMA:B. RIP.

I remember hating Cologne at first and then she grew on me. Rest in peace, ma'm.

She was 92. She lived a long life. Now she can rest. Thank you for having an impact on many children and adults during your career.

I'll always know her as the best grandma Pinako that could've ever been. She was always a favorite of mine.

Thank you for lending your talented voice for all those years, Asou-san! Rest in peace. <3

This is truly sad that a veteran female seiyuu such as her is gone now. I thought she was terrific as the voice of Cologne on Ranma 1/2 and it would have been great hearing her call Ranma "muko-dono" once again. Until her death, I thought she was the oldest female seiyuu in Japan. Now Masako Nozawa is the oldest and I'm wondering how much longer we have her for. May she rest in peace.

P.S.: I wonder if she's now reunited with her Ranma 1/2 co-stars Ichiro Nagai (Happosai), Hirotaka Suzuoki (Kuno) and Hiromi Tsuru (Ukyou).

But I can't say for sure.

^Toshiko Sawada is older by a month. I'm sure there are others as well.

RIP Cologne. 2nd major *Ranma 1/2* voice actor to die this year. Sad

Requiescat in pace, Miyoko Asou-sama. And thank you.
