Otaku Christmas Seiyuu Stalking Mania


Each Christmas, 2ch otaku start a “Supervise female seiyuu to make sure they aren’t spending time with a man” thread, in which they pore over seiyuu blogs for suspect updates, check for possible alibi, and examine the dates of any photographs posted to make sure they are genuine evidence of a Christmas spent alone.

This year’s targets, courtesy of 2ch:

Of the various seiyuu monitored, it appears Ayana Taketatsu (Azusa) and Yoko Hikasa (Mio) are lacking proper EXIF authentication of their whereabouts this Christmas. Aki Toyosaki (Yui) has been spotted manipulating the EXIF data of a photograph to make it appear recent, despite it being identified as older.

The reason for the EXIF data checking is that the EXIF timestamp added to images by digital cameras will give away a photo taken before it was actually posted, in case seiyuu have the gall to employ subterfuge in defence of their privacy.

Naturally, a sufficiently savvy seiyuu (or more likely their agency) could simply manipulate the EXIF data to give an appropriate alibi, so fans also look for additional cross-site corroboration where possible.

As 2ch puts it, this thread is “90% virgin, 100% stalker.”

However, all this stalkerish suspicion is not entirely a product of obsessive otaku delusion.

In 2007, famed bikini model Aya Hirano made a series of Christmas updates to her blog in which she emphasised that she spent Christmas Eve, in Japan largely a romantic evening for couples, at a party which was “nothing but women.”


The updates were made on Christmas Eve, but suspicious (just why is perhaps better not wondered about) otaku examined the EXIF timestamps on the photographs she uploaded – the photos were actually taken on the 21st.

This led to the inevitable suspicion that she had made an update specifically for the purpose of deceiving her creepy fans into thinking she was safely at a chaste female-only party, rather than happily in the bed of some discrete boyfriend as fans subsequently suspected.

It seems believing their “idol” is a perpetually chaste virgin is so important to idol otaku that seiyuu must now manufacture forensically perfect evidence of them being free of insidious male company at every likely romantic occasion, lest 2ch and their delightful fans brand them strumpets and run their names through the muck…

    It's stuff like this that makes me start to hate my fellow fans. These seiyuu are ordinary people deserving of a normal life without the shit stirred up by these sick fucks who have nothing better to do than make these poor girls' life a living hell.

    But it does makes you wonder why seiyuu them-selfs indulge those stalking like fans by uploading pics and staff of there activities.
    If i was them i wouldn't even have a blog.

    I see the term "whore" throw around a lot and am led to understand that otaku categorise women i the following manner.
    If she has romantic relations with a man or any number of men she is a whore. The only way she remains chaste and pure is if she remains lonely forever or has a relationship with the otaku in question. The latter of course is an impossibility in this universe and even if it were, all the other fans would call her a whore because she is not with them. Therefore the only way these otaku can be happy is if they collaborate in ensuring she stays as lonely as them.

    I'm guessing you're a "meninist", lol. Thinking that people are whores and feminazis for thinking this is creepy, so I guess men aren't allowed to respect women either, huh?
    I bet if it were a bunch of male VA y'all would be like "WHOA, WHOA, STOP THE PRESSES AND GET THESE BITCHES OFF THE MEN" but nahhh it's okay because they have vaginas <:D
    Take off your fedora and get laid ya freak.

    Don't tell me the Otaku are going to become real Gynecologist so they can learn to test for true virgin status or not and also become the Doctors of the seiyuu of their choice as well? Hmm, now theres a job I should have went after myself. A DR Gynecologist specialist...

    Problem is, you can't confirm virginity with medical expertise. The presence or absence of a hymen is a poor indicator since some girls are born without a hymen and others lose theirs due to various factors including but not up to gym workouts.

    Too bad otaku are such losers they can't get real girlfriends, they have to make the objects of their affectations. hide the relationships that their fans could never get. Fuck you 2ch losers.

    I thought I was an otaku first. But actually, I better fit to a group which consumes, but isn't a complete sheep. Either "Otaku" divided to those sorry guys, or I and others have leveled up from that.

    Some people are getting it wrong.

    This has nothing to do with females and males and everything to do with the requirements of your occupation.

    Some of these voice actors are also idols and in the business of being an idol, you try to sell an image of perfection and purity to a very specific group of people.

    If they don't want to put up with it, they don't have to be an idol.

    It's just like strippers and pole-dancers. Part of their occupation is to sell their image of sexiness and sometimes skankiness. If they don't want to do those things, they should find another job.

    So unless I'm missing something they could just set the date and time on the camera and the EXIF data will have that date and time.

    Gee, that was hard to work around.

    They should set the date 50 years into the future. Now _that_ will blow the little otaku heads as they realize their' beloved seiyuu is a time-traveler.

    I guess it's not their department to know about magical EXIF fairies. I'd assume they have some PR guys who should know this sort of thing, or at least have someone on hand to know this sort of thing.

    Hell yeah! Well it doesn't matter to me even if Aya Hirano one day suprises the world that she got knocked up by that "discrete boyfriend", she's still forever will be Haruhi Suzumiya to me... That and the fact that even married seiyuus makes great characters....

    All that is important is that they contribute their voices to bring our favorite anime characters to life.

    The one thing that makes me proud of otaku is that we are often intelligent, skilled, and organized...of course, we use it all on shit like this and sitting around analyzing anime. A few good otaku looked in a room without access to moe would solve world hunger if you promised a pic of mio for it...
