Mio “Besmirched by Second-Hand Seiyuu”


Creepy otaku are complaining that Mio Akiyama‘s honour is being besmirched by the shocking decision by her seiyuu Yōko Hikasa to wear a ring, which in otaku eyes is apparently regarded as a step below a brothel worker.

The seiyuu can clearly be seen scandalously sporting one of the incriminating objects or her left hand, on the left – as yet nobody knows why, leaving the door open to wild and utterly baseless speculation of the type 2ch excels at

Some even go so far as to say the seiyuu is “damaging Mio’s good name,” such as it is.

This of course comes on the heels of Aya Hirano’s scandal sparking decision to wear a ring, which prompted denials from Hirano herself.

Curious then, for a pro to make such a blunder, if it is indeed such…

    In the west anime fans call themselves "otaku" because the use of Japanese words is both cool and relevent to their interests. The term carries a collective meaning of group pride sharing with it a sense of belonging to a unique culture.

    However upon learning what connotations are actually associtated with "otaku" by their actions in Japan, they become ashamed of themselves and ban the word from their vocabulary. Seriously, is it the internet's fault? Does being anonymous turn people automatically into idiotic douchebags?

    Millions of otakus will commit suicide. And nothing of value will be lost.

    Works for me.

    Otaku was fun for me for like a veeeeeery brief span of time, till I discovered that in the real world in Japan, the word is actually Japanese for 'disgusting fucking loser'.

    Thus I will stick to using the much more logical term 'fan'.
    No negative connotations attached.

    I thought Narutards were pathetic!

    Pathetic Japanese virgins demanding their voice actresses follow suit?

    They truly live in a fantasy world, someone needs to cart their asses overseas for a few years of hard manual labor!

    You guys have got it all wrong. I don't think it's that they expect the seiyuu to actually BE celibate. They just feel like KNOWING that the seiyuu are not kinda ruins the illusion. I mean, we're talking ronery otaku here who spend thousands of dollars on merchandise and support the franchise that without this kind of support would not continue to employ the seiyuu at all. So just don't mess with the image and everyone's happy.

    you do have a point, but you have to admit that the Japanese otaku have a freakish obsession with virginity. And knowing that Mio is the "waifu" of many a Japanese otaku, I think that them knowing that her Seiyuu maybe *GASP* not a virgin and *DOUBLE GASP* maybe married does make sense.

    But on the matter at hand, this is unbelievably fucking stupid. So what if Yoko Hikasa has a boyfriend and so what if she wants to get married? It's her fucking business. A girl that good looking is gonna have had AT LEAST a boyfriend in the past, and more than likely has had sex before. To think otherwise in naive and stupid. And more importaintly, she might be wearing this ring for fashion reasons alone, not because of engagement. Which would mean this bitch fest (both mine and theirs) was entirely pointless.

    And on a separate note, as much as I love things like K-ON, Lucky Star, and Azumanga Daioh, I always found it a little unrealistic that these girls are beautiful (not just to us fans, within the universe of the show as well) yet there are no guys chasing after their affections, nor do anyone of them have boyfriends (yes, I know that K-ON takes place in an all girls school, but really that is just the product of the "virgin maiden" obsession in my opinion). Even one of my absolute favorites Negima falls victim to this. In a class of 31 girls, only 1 has an actual boyfriend. (That the character herself is not afraid to call him a boyfriend. And that's Misa Kakizaki, a very minor character, and we never her boyfriend. Although I guess Negima can skirt the issue somewhat as they are middle schoolers instead of high schoolers). I find it sad that the casts of these shows are basically determined by the fact that these Otaku can't take the fact that these IMAGINARY girls may have IMAGINARY boyfriend and together they may have an IMAGINARY sex life. I think that these shows could be made even more entertaining with the edition of actual confirmed and canon love interests. But that would never happen in Moe-heavy shows because the studios have to appease the Otaku, because they are the ones who by everything, from the DVDs to the shameless tie-ins. It's a god damn shame.

    With Vocaloid technology progressing the way it is, soon, studios and viewers won't have to deal with those problematic and dirty seiyuu's and their antics like wearing a ring how disgusting.

    I like that idea. In fact if I could, Id make a show, just like Kon, and when it reaches this level of popularity, do exactly that gangbang sceen, and end the series.

    The amount of hate for behavior you people claim not to understand is unnatural. Say you recieve a pretty tulip from your sweetheart, then, is it just a flower like any other. Doesn't it become a special. Is it not something you fruitlessly try to preserve. Forget that the flower lived a great majority of it's life with a florist, and did whatever it is flowers do without the knowledge of your lover who handed it to you - at the end of it all - the flower becomes an extention of the one who handed it to you.

    Is this all too different.

    Mio is more of the product than just her anime character. Every aspect of mio, from her guitar to her actress, is Mio herself. The entire fantasy of Mio is Mio. Every part is to be protected. The studio probably know this, she probably has a contract that forbids her from getting married while under it. This profession is one that controls your entire life, she knows this herself.

    Another example then.

    Suppose a sexy model for a vegan organization appears on tv a few days later: fat, ugly, and cruel to animals. Is it really forgrivable because she has the right to her own life.

    I've lost my virginity to someone I cared nothing about, and wish I had not. There are cultural differences at work here, most of you would look smarter off downplaying virginity as an insult.

    Oh jeez, otaku getting out of hand again...*sigh*

    Anyways, Hikasa looks to be a pretty woman and considering she is now 24 years old it's perfectly natural for her to get married...Especially in Japan...

    I just hope if she gets family her husband and future children won't be in danger because of creepy stalker...I can very well imagine some otaku would go crazy and massacre the whole family saying "She besmirched Mio's good name"...

    Let's pray to the protecting Gods of Seiyuu she never have to deal with such fate...( - __ -)/\

    Fuck'n crazy otaku giving the rest of us sane otaku a bad name. (Of course I'm an American otaku; it's almost like a different species...) I almost shit myself with disbeleif when I heard the Japanese otaku rage over the manga character Kanagi form the manga/anime of the same name having a boyfriend in the past. A fuck-ton of female seiyuu out there who voice popular characters are married. Sheesh. Get a fucking life.

    Just because you're damned to being an eternal virgin, doesn't mean you have to make some voice actor or fictional character stuck in the same boat as you.

    I know there are nice otaku in Japan; look at Densha Otoko. (We should be happy for him.) What if some some pretty female seiyuu hit it off with a single nice male otaku? Are we so sick as to damn the both of them? What a sickness.

    My reaction to Yōko Hikasa wearing ring on her finger?

    I don't care;If the Otaku fans want to go and react to this in a negative way then Boycott K-on if thats how you feel about seiyuu Yōko Hikasa for wearing a ring on her finger?

    Clearly the people who are complaining about all of this are healthy and well-adapted members of society with reasonable expectations of women and a good grounding in having dealt with females on a social level many times throughout their lives.

    I'd love to see a trend in anime industry to force these weeds of society (creepy otaku) into oblivion. making innocent-looking moe idols admit that they had boyfriends and have ones; teasing them about getting a life (even 2D), etc. honestly, these kinds of overemphasized otaku creeps are just spoiling the fun for the ordinary fans.

    Seiyuu shouldn't tolerate this nonsense. They should get together for one massive photo shoot, and ALL wear rings.

    Perhaps on their middle finger.
