Megumi Hayashibara, famous voice actress who had a huge part in voice acting for anime during the 90's. Many will remember her as the voice for Lina Inverse from Slayers, Rei Ayanami from Evangelion, Ranma Saotome from Ranma 1/2 and Pai from 3x3 Eyes.

She's got more VA roles on her resume than even the most popular VA's of today can boast. I'll just leave a link to her AnimeNewsNetwork profile below and you can take a look yourself.

Since she isn't as active as she used to be I figured it might be prime time to maybe see about getting her to show up to an american convention!

Megumi Hayashibara for 2013!

It'll be a great way to celebrate if we don't die in December 2012 :P

I will be content for her to just give a panel. Despite me being a big fan of her songs, but Megumi is also known for being quite reluctant to do solo singing performance since she have mentioned many times in the past she doesn't really have the stamina to do live performance. Considering her relatively passive attitude of seiyu singer, it might be wiser just focus on her voice acting career.

Oh my gosh I would be so excited to see her. Lina was one of the coolest characters I ever saw when I first got into anime, and I would love to hear her thoughts of the recent state of anime actors.

Was in the car and "Give a Reason" played on my playlist. Oh god, I love her singing voice.

Really hope to one day see her in person.

<3 Megumi Hayashibara. It would be wonderful if she came. I'd order my badge in a heartbeat if she was announced.

I like this idea. I'm going to send out feelers through her record label to see if anything sticks.

With the recent release of Eva 3.0 this just got a whole lot more relevant.

I am seriously crossing my fingers that something sticks! <3 She's one of the few guests I'd really get excited about!

I used to get excited for ACen guests, then they started only inviting fashion people from Japan instead of people actually involved in the anime and manga business.

BRING BACK NAMES IN THE ANIME AND MANGA BUSINESS!!

Megumi Hayashibara would be a most excellent step in the right direction <3

I'll even beg.
