Machiko Soga has passed away

She was found in her home today, it was said she died of an illness she had been fighting for a few months. She was 68 when she passed.

From Yahoo Japan:

Soga Machiko passed away today at the age of 68. She was found in her apartment home by a friend around noon on May 7th. She was a Tokyo graduate with one living relative who visited the same day as she died. As an actress she played the role of a villain many times in tokusatsu sfx programs. She made her debut on NHK’s radio drama Chorinmura to Kurumi no Ki (1961), and later gained fame as the first voice actor to portray the loveable ghost Q-taro in Obake no Q-tarō (TBS, 1965-1968). However, she is best known to fans of tokusatsu for her villianous roles in the Super Sentai franchise such as Queen Hedrian in Denjiman and Sun Vulcan, as well as the evil sorceress, Bandora in Zyuranger. Her latest tokusatsu role was Majiel, Queen of the Sky Saints in Mahou Sentai Magiranger, which incidently is her first non-villianess role. She also has her own jewelry and clothing line. Around June last year it was announced that she had a terminal physical condition.

She was the actress for Bandora (and in footage, Rita), and Magiel in Magiranger. We'll miss her.

Anyone else think, Power Rangers should deticate an episode to the actress, like they have done before, with a message in the end?

They could alwys dub her Magi footage for use in MF just like the old days.

Very sad news indeed. I quite liked her.

I hope they do. I think it'd be the best way for PR to pay tribute.

I'd like to see them do that, but I'm not going to bet on it. I'd think a Sentai episode would do something in her memory, though, as she played multiple roles throughout the show's history. Maybe during/after Boukenger's Zyuranger retrospective or something.

RIP Machiko Soga
