Yuue before her off-screen death in 'Ju-on: The Grudge'
Ju-on (Ju-on: The Curse) (2000) [Manabi Kobayashi]: Stomach slashed open (off-screen) by Takashi Matsuyama when he performs an "impromptu C-section." Neither the murder nor her body is shown; we only see the blood-covered Takashi in a phone booth, holding the bloody fetus and boasting to Yuue's husband (Yueri Yanagi) about the murder. (Note: Yuue also appeared in this role in the 2000 sequel Ju-on 2; however, since the sequel made extensive use of footage from the original and her fate was clearly established in the first movie, I assume that she only appeared in scenes from the original and not in any new scenes.) (This is not to be confused with the 2003 remake Ju-on a.k.a. Ju-on: The Grudge.)
