Anime Expo has announced that Macross Frontier singers Megumi Nakajima and May "May'n" Nakabayashi will perform during the July 1-4 convention in Los Angeles. Nakajima won the nationwide audition to play the budding singer Ranka Lee in this science-fiction romance anime series, and she also performs Ranka Lee's songs. May'n performs the songs of the anime's "Galactic Fairy" idol Sheryl Nome.
After making her anime debut with Macross Frontier, Nakajima has since acted and sung on the soundtracks of Kobato., Kämpfer, and Basquash Before Macross Frontier, May'n contributed the ending theme song for the Lovege Chu ~Miracle Seiyuu Hakusho~ anime, and has since performed on Shangri-La and the upcoming anime series Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi.
Nakajima and May'n are Anime Expo's last announced musical guests for this year, although the convention is planning to have a "mystery guest" who will also perform onstage with these two singers on July 2. Anime Expo's other announced musical guests are AKB48, Sophia, and Mell.
