Nakajima Megumi, best known for her role as Ranka Lee from Macross Frontier, originally started out with participating and passing in the “Self Stardust Promotion” contest held by Stardust Promotion talent agency back in 2003. Subsequently she went to audition in the Victor Entertainment sanctioned “Victor Vocal & Voice Audition” and won the role as Ranka Lee’s voice actress in 2007.
