Singer and voice actress Mari Iijima, known for playing the role of Lynn Minmay in both the Japanese and English dub versions of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross science-fiction anime series, will appear as a guest at SacAnime convention in Sacramento, California from September 3 to September 5.
Iijima contributed songs to later Macross projects and had her own independent music career. Her debut album, Rosé, was produced by composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. In 2006, Iijima returned to Macross to reprise her role as Lynn Minmay in the English dub. In doing so, Iijima made history by becoming the one of the first Japanese voice actresses to reprise a major role in the English dub of a Japanese anime. Iijima currently lives in Los Angeles.
