She is best remembered for her portrayal of Sailor Moon (in Japanese, Usagi Tsukino) in the Sailor Moon musicals. Kanbe was chosen out of 500 women for the role. Much of her career involved physically demanding roles.

As late as June 2008, she had been active and vocally expressing an interest in furthering her career. She was cast in the role of Eponine in the Japanese production of Les Misérables and in Miss Saigon, but was forced to give them up due to poor health in February 2007.


Since then, she had been in and out of the hospital until her death in Kawasaki City on June 18, 2008 at 4:08 am. The cause of death is cited as sudden heart failure. Her funeral was held in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture on 21 June 2008.
