Monkey Business

masako1.jpg Good news for all Monkey Magic fans: Tripitaka WAS a girl after all. House husband has more information:

The BAD News is that the character is a guy. As I stated before, there are no female Buddhist Priests.

The GOOD News is that the person who played Tripitaka is actually a woman. In fact she was quite a famous actress and model in Japan. Her name is Masako Natsume (Her real name is Masako Odate). Sadly however she died on September 11 1985, aged 27, just over 6 years after finishing work on Monkey.

That’s her at the top left. More Masako.
