Easy delivery!!" Miyamura and her second child already checked out of the hospital on Wednesday.

Miyamura is also well-known for voicing Chun-Li in the Street Fighter game series and Kazuha Toyama in the Detective Conan (Case Closed) anime franchise. She appeared in the video that explained the deadly game rules in the live-action Battle Royale film.
