This is a sad news. We all know her work in many Gundam series (Sarah Zabiarov in Zeta Gundam, for example], as well as Excellen Browning in Super Robot Wars.

Rest In Peace, Yuko-san.

Blog post from SRW mastermind, Terada. Sending his condolences and such while also informing the fans that she had wrapped up voicing Excellen late last year, so no lines will be missed with Moon Dwellers.

Also her tag for pixiv artwork (水谷優子) has added over 4 new pages worth of tribute art since her passing. Roughly 85 pieces as of this posting. A lot of people loved her and her work.

I will miss her very much. She voiced many great female roles in mecha anime and other genres.
