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.
Jinkaku Radio was initially selected as the ED theme singer of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
. Yuki, the singer of the band, posted a picture of Horie Yui
in his blog and insulted her.
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.
