Notable Roles by Tomoko Kaneda

Tropes associated with her:

  • Genki Girl: No, that's not an act. Kaneda-san is well-known and adored among industry veterans for her bubbly personality and energetic child-like antics, especially during live shows. You'd be hard-pressed to find another 40-something woman who's this hyper.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Practically a given among the cast of any show she's in, as she's only 145 cm (about 4 ft 9) tall. It helps that she also sounds the part, despite being a good decade older than some cast members.
  • Womanchild: In a good way. Despite being in her mid-40s, she usually behaves like someone a quarter her age, often getting really excited over trivial things and wearing colorful outfits that wouldn't look too out of place in a kindergarten. This is put on full display in her podcasts with Hiroshi Kamiya, where she gives him, a Hyena himself, a run for his money with her laughing and antics.
