As a rabid Shonen Knife fan, I so regret knowing little about this little dynamo of a drummer; from what i've since learned, all i can say is, what a loss.From everything i've read about her from her dearest friends; Mana was a sweet, totally unselfish and beautiful person; it seems so wrong that good people like Mana die young when so many evil people live unpunished in this World.
RIP Mana, i wish I could bring you back. Mikado
