An investigation was ongoing to determine the voice actress’ cause of death, although officials found that Tsuru was not involved in a vehicular accident. She was 57 years old.

Tsuru voiced Bulma, a scientist who is the heiress to the Capsule Corporation, in 1986. She stayed to voice the character in subsequent “Dragon Ball” series, spin-offs and movies. /ra
