Oricon reports that Yuko Mizutani passed away on May 17th following a previous diagnosis with breast cancer. One of Mizutani's most famous roles was Sakiko Sakura (older sister in TV anime, Chibi Maruko Chan), as well as Sora Takenouchi in Digimon Adventure.



Her most recent stint was voicing Ikuko Tsukino in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal. Mizutani's also performed some video game voice work as Iris in Mega Man X4, and the Japanese voice of Minnie Mouse for the Kingdom Hearts series.

Mizutani was an extraordinary talent, she'll be missed dearly, and may she rest in peace.

While on air for a podcast with Nerdist, Rockwell said “they were going to do a sequel on Amazon. We were ready to sign up, and [then] Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn’t available – he has a show – and everybody’s schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, like, right now. And how do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? That’s a hard void to fill.”



A hard void to fill indeed. By Grabthar's Hammer, what a crying shame.

Erik Bauersfeld, the talented actor who supplied the iconic voice for the renowned rebel commander Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens passed away Monday at 93 years old, due to natural causes.



When asked about his most famous line Bauersfeld disclosed to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2012:

"The fans who write say they'll never forget 'It's a trap!' I don't even remember how I said it. It's not that I don't like it or don't respect it. I just don't have time to be a fan and see it 10 times or 20 times."

Farewell indeed, Admiral, your voice will echo on into eternity.
