Michie Tomizawa was born on October 20th of 1961 in Nagano, Japan. With her 41st birthday upcoming she has decided it is time to retire from video game voice acting.

There has been no information regarding her future in Anime. Sakura Taisen 4 will be the last video game that fans will be able to hear her voice in. As the Seiyuu for te ever-popular Sumire Kanzaki, she will be sorely missed. The series will have a hard time replacing her.

Michie Tomizawa has an incredible list of series to her credit. She not only played the arrogant spoiled Sumire, but equally arrogant and spoiled Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon. You can't claim she is typecast though. She also played the role of Doris from the original Vampire Hunter D: Movie and Zaki from Fist of the North Star. Chances are if you like Anime, you have been touched by the wonderful work of Michie Tomizawa. You may not have known it, but she has been a staple of good voice acting and a true testament to what a Seiyuu should be.
