Greetings, Friends and Fiends.
Ye Olde Dragon here, bearing sad news once more from Japan.
It has been confirmed that on May 18, 2016, Yumi Ito – the “younger” twin of The Peanuts – passed away at age 75.
The Peanuts were a very popular musical duo in Japan, partly because identical twins were very rare there.
But Yumi and her sister Emi – who passed away in 2012 – were best known as the original Shobijin, or the tiny fairy priestesses of Mothra, in that Kaiju’s first three film appearances. They also starred in a number of Toho comedies.
…End of Line…
