Characters:

Hikaru Ichijyo
(Jap VA: Arihiro Hase/Eng VA: Vic Mignogna)

Lynn Minmay
(Jap VA & Eng VA: Mari Iijima)

Minmay Trivia:
Her hit songs include “My Boyfriend’s a Pilot,” “Little White Dragon,” and “Do You Remember Love?”

The first song that Minmay sings, “Cinderella” in Episode 4, was not written for the show. Instead, the song had been written by Iijima (Jap VA) prior to being picked for the role of Minmay. The fact that she was a songwriter was one of the factors that led to her being selected.

Coincidentally, the very last song that Minmay would sing in a Macross animated production, “An Angel’s Paints” from the Do You Remember Love? movie and Flash Back 2012 video, was also written by Iijima.

In Macross Frontier her song “My Boyfriend’s A Pilot”, sung by Ranka Lee during a Miss Macross Frontier competition, was referred to as “a legendary song every person here knows”.
