A Daily Dose of Music: Macross Week photo



Last week celebrated the 30th anniversary of my favorite anime of all time, Super Dimension Fortress Macross. Full of action, robots, romance, and humanity, Macross was a space opera tour de force. One of the things that really made Macross stand out for me was definitely the music. In each of the series, the power of music was always a central point of the show. This week we take a look back at some of the most memorable moments.

When I think about music in anime, it always comes ack to one person. Mari Iijima. The young rising singer was cast at the last minute in Super Dimension Fortress Macross as Lynn Minmei, and anime was never the same. Due to my absolute adoration for Miss Iijima, you're not going to get away without an Over-Dose or two.

Unfortunately, being cast in such a polarizing role actually had a detrimental effect on Iijima's career, as she could never escape the shadow of Lynn Minmei and move on with her musical career. She continues to write beautiful music, and actually relocated to Los Angeles. Do yourself a favor and check out her recent music, and of course support the artist herself! Also, if you happen to be in Los Angeles next week, stop by The Macross World Convention, and meet one of the women that changed anime, J-Pop, and my life forever.
