According to Rakuten Woman News, Seiyu Hirano Aya appeared in a TV program and openly disclosed her love affairs on August 4th. She said she had been dating with more than one man, who are all older her and she is currently in love with a man. The TV program threw Hirano's fans into despair and numbers of comments threatening her posted in 2channel and Twitter. Hirano Aya reacted to the comments that "All the experiences support me and I don't want to play characters without knowing the real love. ... Please don't post commens like 'Go to hell!' 'I hate you!'. ... I was self-confident in my tough heart, but they do depress me."

Rakuten Woman reported that the new manager of Hirano is trying to convert her from an idol seiyu to a multi-media "Talent" personality. She had been anxious about the conversion but finally made up her mind to part from anime otaku and to appeal more to girls by the bare confession.

LOL, DURAMA.

Removing her from favorites? Nonsense.

I've never cared about any seiyu's private life. The reason seiyus should be added to the favorites is because of their voice, and not because of their personal life. And as long as Hirano Aya continues to do a good job voice acting, then I see no reason to remove her; however, if she really does plan on leaving the seiyu business...

i just don't understand why celebrity can't live the way they want it to. this is why many people look down on otaku. in my opinion, if you are a fan of someone, then acknowledge of what they are doing. in fact, give them support rather than destroying their dream just for the sake of "cherishing them"

It might just be bias due to the sources that I get news from, but I seem to hear more and more about Aya Hirano's public image rather than, you know, her voice acting.

I don't consider her an 'idol seiyu'. Not if that is supposed to be a single label anyways. I certainly do not idolize her for her VA talents. She is nowhere near the top, because she doesn't have the experience. Her biggest roles are Haruhi and Konata, and those are old (and she had the Kyoani factor backing her then). What has she done recently of note?

Quoting the wikipedia article on Tarento:
wikipedia said:
Detractors of the phenomenon have referred to it in an English sense as "famous just for being famous" because many that fall into this career line have no discernible talent outside being featured on television.

Just about sums up my feelings about her 'career direction'. I do wish her the best of luck though.

...just curious, has she seen Perfect Blue?

just wondering.... but, what the hell does this have to do with anime and manga?
the answer? nothing, her personnel life has no relevance here
"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

Does she really think she can make it big in the talent industry? She's only popular with the otakus but mainstream people probably have not even heard of her.

I don't really care. The less I see of her, the better. I've never liked her much anyway.

If she really leaves the seiyuu industry for good, no big deal. There are many upcoming and rising voice actresses.

whoa someone going on the offensive...

i like her voice... i prefer her over alot of other female voices, but im not a die-hard fan (she is on my favs though... i think)

i really dont care if she is a slut or a playa... she can do whatever she wants to

why is this a big deal anyway? if x girl down the block did this, would she be on tv? no, so why care just cuz she talks for animated characters

Big deal . She's not the first celebrity to do that and neither the last . Besides, who cares about her private life as long as her voice-acting is good ?

Correct. Unfortunately, it's the industry (this includes the seiyuu themselves) that depends on and feeds the image expected of seiyuu. If they humanized the stars and focused purely on talent, there'd be a lot less money going around.

however, if she really does plan on leaving the seiyu business...


The seiyuu business was never Hirano's goal (which is partly why she's disliked by some otaku, who demand loyalty and reverence for anime). It's a stepping stone for her to break into the entertainment business and then move into something mainstream.....there are reasons why she's aiming for a career transition so quickly.

People are so quick to judge these days.


It's less about judging than fantasy.

I don't think otaku actually expect a star to be celibate. However, confirmation of a relationship closes off the possibility of celibacy, destroying the fantasy they have or could possibly have. In short, it's a "don't ask, don't tell" situation.

At any rate, Hirano knew the kind of reaction that would result.

If "otaku's" are so fast to dismiss her, they were never fans to begin with.

You are a fan because of her voice acting not because of her personal life.

And who cares if she dates older or younger guys? Couldn't care less even if she had an entire harem. She's just a good seiyuu, it's not like we're gonna marry her or something. People who think otherwise, I got news for you. GET A LIFE!

This!

Too bad if she stops voicing acting its too bad, I liked her voice a lot.
And why the hell is everyone bashing around that she's a slut just because she dated a few men...? o.o

I guess it's to get rid of the hypocritical fans, which I think it worked well. Kinda reminds me of what happened to the lead singer of Paramore a few months back, when all her fans stood by her despite her nude pics being circulated around the net.

Personally, I think she is overrated as hell, but she is still highly talented. Her problem is people forgetting that she is a seiyuu and treating her otherwise.

I agree as well. I like Aya Hirano for her voice acting, why should I care for her private life ? In fact, I'm rather happy for her.

she wasn't in my fav-list to begin with xD
it's her problem if she's dating more than 1 guy and if he's older or not..
it's her life, not mine.

Why do we even have to care for her life outside of being a seiyuu? I mean she has her own life and I don't give a fuck on how she lives her life even if she's a slut.

All I care is she's a great seiyuu, idol, etc. Yeah, she's good, her voice has many possibilities.

Hmmm...now that I think of it...I love the old looks of Aya more...but yeah..so what XD

@Zolstyx
Nowhere near the top? Actually she's in the top list lol. Whatever that is backing her is not the concern. You think all good VAs came from KyoAni lol...if that's the case why would seiyuu who voiced famous KyoAni characters didn't get much attention. Learn to accept reality...not your own reality.

Certainly she sucked at some point...specifically her live concert for Haruhi but that didn't change the fact that she's still good as a seiyuu.

She should really learn not to be affected with stupid fans who thinks of her as a fap material.

So she's a slut because she has dated guys that are older than her.

GREAT LOGIC IDIOTS.


This is why overfanatic people should just be thrown into a lake of fire.

"NOO SHE'S MY WAIFU, SHE CANT DATE OTHER PEOPLE"

Reality check.
