Creator: Sumi Shimamoto
You want to describe me? How about I serve some tea to you after you do that, Troper-chan? ^_^Sumi Shimamoto is a voice actress born in 1954, and is currently married to a member of a comedy troupe called Chibikko Gang. Fans best know her as the mom of Detective Conan, Action Girl Nausicaa, and Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku. She is One of Us as she has a knack playing RPG games even at 50+ years of age. Not too trend setting, until you realize this woman's the Ur-Example of seiyuus for Yamato Nadeshiko archetypes... at least until Kikuko Inoue perfected the same.
