Tomoko Kawakami was one of the versatile seiyuu who boomed in the 90's. Her voice range was impressive - she could voice boys, cute girls or even super tough girls. She also might have been a precursor to Hitomi Nabatame in terms of 'Les Yay seiyuu', though Tomoko didn't seem to be Les Yay in real life. Instead, she tended to voice characters who may have some Les Yay tendencies with other characters.

She had been sick with ovarian cancer since 2008; some of her roles got replaced by other seiyuu in the meantime. Heartbreakingly, she lost the battle on June 9th, 2011.
