Motohashi Yuka (Sonona and Yellow Racer) Dead at 46

Would I be right in saying she's only the 3rd Sentai Ranger to die, the others being Kiranger and Shishiranger? Though obviously we've had others like Ui from Ryusoulger.

Cancer's rough. I've fortunately never known anyone with it, but it must be hard.

I've been saying recently I'd love a Carranger 30th, after the Kakuranger one. Guess that's out of the question now. I do love Carranger. I've been going through it preparing it for my NAS, might have to do a proper rewatch soon.

From Tokuatsunewsnetwork

The actress was diagnosed with an unidentified form of cancer back in 2021.

My condolences to her family and friends.

Oof, 46?!

If you live long enough, you're guaranteed to develop cancer. But 46 isn't living long enough.:(

Technically the 4th, if you also include VRV Master. It's such a tragedy, but it's also kind of morbidly surprising that there's been so few across the franchise's 50 years.

Especially because Power Rangers has been around less time but has more. I count 5 dead Power Rangers (Tommy, Trini, Udonna, Shane, Xenowing).

There's also the actor who played the elephant master/spirit ranger in Jungle Fury.
