Jeez. First Kirby Morrow and now her, and she barely got to make her mark. This is so sad. May she rest in peace.

Apparently it was not COVID related; it was cancer.

She was only 6 months older than me (and a year younger than Kirby Morrow).

I really enjoyed Hikari Yono's performance as Kaolinite in Sailor Moon Crystal. It's a shame she passed away at such a young age. This also comes right after we recently lost the actor for Kunzite in the live action Sailor Moon.

If it was indeed cancer, well cancer doesn't give a shit about age sadly. I'm ready for a break from all this misery and sad news. I hope her family and loved ones can find some solace amongst this horrible time.
