Wow, that makes me sad. I loved her work in the shows I've seen. I think they recently rereleased Utena too.

Oh wow, and only 41 too. May she R.I.P. See woman this is why testing is important.

Update: The Sankei Shimbun newspaper reported that Kawakami had been undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer.
