According to the official website, music band Jinkaku Radio has announced that they will suspend the activity due to the inappropriate remark of one of the members. The live stages and the release of the new CDs will be canceled.
I have been seeing interviewers from this kind of magazines since I began to work for an anime. (A picture of Horie Yui on the cover of Seiyu Grand Prix magazine was inserted.) All the seiyu have 'seiyu-ish' looking. They look "less than an idol" or kinda cheap if not deteriorated. They are like Universal Studios Japan if an idol corresponds to Tokyo Disneyland. I don't say it's good or bad. It's a matter of taste.
The post was immediately removed and Yuki apologized to Horie Yui, her fans and the people in the anime industry but Jinkaku Radio was dropped from the theme singer of the anime. Amesaki Annainin's song "Ohisama" was chosen for the new ED theme.
i think people are missing the bigger point why the fuck would they be like oh you talked a little shit well fuck you and your whole band..... i think its ridiculous they would end everything over that.
Eh, I guess it could be taken as mildly offending what he said. But still... I understand being dropped out of the ED, but breaking up the band and cancelling all the CDs? Wow! Aren't we exaggerating a bit... O.o

I don't like her too...
I never expect any good comment for Horie Yui from a Fujoshi
I just prefer low voices and male seiyuu, it has nothing with being fujoshi.
Well you can't blame them for thinking that cause there are some fujoushi out there that hate female seiyuu just because they are women and not sexy men.
IT'S NOT BECAUSE SHE IS WOMAN!
PEOPLE, TRY TO UNDERSTAND, AT LEAST, THAT ANOTHER HAVE THEIR OWN PREFERENCES.
it's really pissing me off when I see that people think I hate female seiyuu which is actually lie.

Pretty much this.
The remark wasn't offensive until he said "cheap". It still wouldn't have been such a big deal - as the guy himself stated, it's just a matter of taste - if only he hadn't mentioned a specific name, and Horie's at that. Bad move. Hopefully Yui didn't feel offended, although it would be completely understandable if she had :/
i kind of agree with what he was saying about seiyus, but he did go a bit far and it is true that if you are in this type of scene you should avoid saying things that would offend other people in the industry, especially some one who is quite a big player in it.
I love how when we're kids we're taught that if we have nothing good to say then you shouldn't say anything at all. But, when we're online we somehow feel like we can say whatever the hell we want without consequences lol.
Kinoholic said: None of her roles look that impressive
You must have an astonishingly high (read: unrealistic) bar for "impressive" in that case. She's only one of the most experienced, veteran female seiyuu working in the business today, with a broad vocal range, plus a resume fifteen years long and full of both lead roles and popular characters. She's in the top tier of active female seiyuu by any possible definition.
