We here at Anime Jam Session are sad to report that a renowned cosplayer by the name Saya passed away. News of her death was confirmed by her younger sister; Saya died on March 15th, but given the circumstances both in Japan and with her being understandably shook up, it wasn’t made public right away. Saya’s death was the result of an accident; however, the details of the accident have yet to be ascertained.
Before her death, Saya herself debunked rumors that she had either a) died as a result of the earthquake or b) committed suicide.
Among her last cosplays before her death was Panty (Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt).
