To be fair, William Shatner isn't that great as an artist, and so people started thinking the rest of the cast is like him, and then ignored everything else they did.Seto Kaiba wrote: ↑Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:19 amOh, Mari herself has confirmed on several occasions that for a long time she was rather upset/bitter over having her career dominated by her debut role as Lynn Minmay in Super Dimension Fortress Macross. You'd be pretty cross too if the world set out to tell you at every opportunity that you peaked right out of the gate in you chosen vocation.
She kind of fell victim to the same kind of fame problem that dogged many Star Trek and Star Wars actors, being known for one extremely famous role that leaves them "that actor from that film" rather than just "that actor".
Anyway, I used the time between that last post to listen some more to Ms. Mari's live performances. They were just so... amateurish, and I feel like there is something really wrong with her vocal cords. It is a stark contrast with someone like, say, Hiroko Moriguchi or MIQ (the singer who sang L-Gaim theme).They could still play the notes right nowadays.
