Hase Arihiro (April 22, 1965 - July 30, 1996) was a voice actor from Tokyo, Japan. He was the son of voice actor Hase Sanji. His most famous voice work was that of Ichijyo Hikaru from the Macross series.

He committed suicide on July 30, 1996 by jumping from his seventh-story window at the age of 31. This occurred shortly after recording the Macross World Radio Show. He remained a friend of fellow Macross cast member and pop singer Iijima Mari after the series ended and frequently attended her concerts up until his death.

In 2005, Iijima reprised her role of Lynn Minmay for the ADV Films English dub release of Macross, and in interviews has stated that she is dedicating this new release to him.

During his active career he was a member of Sigma Club (シグマクラブ) and Production MThree (プロダクション・エムスリー).

Suicidal depression. It can happen to anyone. Don't be afraid of seeking help.

Well goddamn... It's a shame he committed suicide 20 years ago. I'm watching Macross for the first time currently and am really enjoying him as Hikaru. Really disappointing he didn't get to do more

I actually never knew the VA of Hikaru committed suicide, so sad :(

Its quite common for people with issues in Japan to commit suicide, having depression and not talking about it is very difficult and specially when you never speak about it, it becomes too much.

Very sad, in Japan these things are usually very personal and embarrassing but thankfully such old school thinking is starting to fade

His time was way shorter than Shiozawa's. He was too young. Way too young. Why....? Why did he off himself?

I was only 4 when he died.
This is too depressing. It just... isn't.. fair....

What the fuck. Well, damn. I'll be watching Macross again w/ different feelings about Hikaru...

Interesting that he actually had a role in Macross 7 as well.
