Known to Macross fans as the voice of Lynn Minmay from the original series, Mari Iijima now lives in the U.S. as an accomplished musician, actress and advertising model. She has graced our convention before and as always we are very excited to have her return to perform and sign autographs. With the bigger venue this year, we are hoping that everyone will get a good view of her performance. But get your seat early, because it’s always a packed house when Mari starts to play.
