RIP Kyoko Enami

Japan — Actress Kyoko Enami died October 27 due to pulmonary emphysema. She was 76.
Among her most acclaimed films was 1973’s “Tsugaru Folksong.” But MSTies know her from her role as Karen in the movie in episode 304- GAMERA VS. BARUGON.

Anime News Network has the story.

Thanks to Timmy for the heads up.

    In the Japanese media I partake, Karen is a relatively common character name. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s especially popular among Japanese parents who like to give their kids Western names, or if it’s just a case of a Japanese name that happens to be phonetically identical to a Western name.
