For the first time ever Aya Hirano has spoken publicly of her love life, sparking off instant otaku fury before the revelations have even aired.

In a recent interview she reports (about 9 minutes in) she has “revealed all” about her love life in an upcoming variety programme episode to air at the start of August – “It’s up to you what you think, but don’t hate me!” she says, paradoxically.

With her TV talent appearances for the start of August having now risen to no less than 5 different programmes in a single week, it also seems she is indeed thrusting headlong into the world of TV talent whilst leaving her mouldering career as seiyuu-idol behind.

Revelations about her love life are sure to alienate completely her creepy otaku fanbase, suggesting she may well be intent on abandoning her idol/seiyuu credentials completely.

Even the mere admission that she has a love life has already stoked 2ch’s substantial seiyuu stalking component (along with their even more numerous detractors) into a frenzy:

“‘Don’t hate me’ – she thinks anyone still likes her?”

“So she’ll tell us what positions she likes?”

“A bitch making bitch talk doesn’t change the fact she’s already a bitch.”

“Fans who stop liking her because of this weren’t real fans to start with!”

“Don’t dump us!”

“She can say whatever she likes, if she does it in Konata’s voice all will be forgiven.”

“I hope she’s prepared for the reaction of all those creepy otaku…”

“There’s no way any creepy otaku would forgive an idol who had a boyfriend for even a second.”

    Should I take this as a sign that her decision to leave her seiyuu career behind is not half-hearted? 'Cause there'd be no going back after this; saying that those otaku are caustic is an understatement after all.

    Good for her (I mean that hopefully she is giving the finger to all those creepy otaku who obsess about her being a virgin forever). I hope she doesn't abandon all seiyuu work altogether though.

    Good for her. I knew there was a reason why I liked the lady; she's about as honest as you can be in that screwy profession, by my estimation.

    I hope she finds peace amongst the rage, and that angry, introverted would-be fans don't do anything stupid.

    good for her. haters gonna hate, if she made a simple mistake(like wearing a bikini wrong) people made fun of her, when she leaves the industry people still hate her. i mean WTF is wrong with people. it's not like she's doing anything to annoy you or something.

    She'll probably need to watch for people approaching her carrying duffel bags of sharp objects....

    Intended for whoever she mentioned in that interview, of course.

    Otaku need to learn how to deal. Really, this overreaction to any kind of social life by seiyuu, among other bizarre extremities, has become far too normalized. It's like someone makes a joke on the net, a few more take it seriously and copy it, then it becomes "okay." Well, no, it isn't... stalkers, death threats, screeds against people who make their media because a character is "second hand" and so on are signs of severe and dangerous mental health issues, and in some cases, shameful lack of mental maturity.

    If she can find a BF, good for her. We should all be so lucky to find an SO.

    You know, fuck it. I vote Aya Hirano DOESN'T go back into voice-acting, if people are gonna be such raging dickheads.

    Just because she provides the voice of one or two characters you like does not automatically mean it's okay to obsess over her. Go worry about Konata getting a boyfriend, and essentially? Fuck off, 2ch.

    if u r a real fan, then u'll forgive her, deshou? even if she left the otaku world, it's like i won't see her more often then, because i watched animes with her voice in there, but i don't watch her shows because i can't understand it even a lil bit..

    and why do u make aya away from the reality, she's only a person, she got the rights to love as everyone.. right? she's already 22 or 23.. she's already an adult, duh? u dun want her to grow up lonely and alone, r u?

    Stupid otaku don't realize that Aya never intended to be a seiyuu. She originally was a singer and aspiring tv personality but she failed on that in her early years, so she was forced to be a seiyuu.

    She's totally going to admit she's a lesbian, leaving her fans horribly confused.

    They'll hate the fact she's dating, but girl on girl is hot. So yeah.

    I'm glad that she has a love life ( at least, she has a life unlike 2ch's people) but her boyfriend had better don't walk in a deserted alley at night.

    Maybe it's already been mentioned by none-the-less:
    If she can get so many TV roles and have them all play out, maybe it's just better money (and/or she's looking for change she, herself, as an individual can consider moving into a positive future). If she can make more money live-on-TV, she might as well do it while she's "young", even if it pisses off a certain portion of her fan base. If she can offer "talent" on TV and not just be limited to how she can manipulate her voice, then more power to her and hopefully she does get more compensation than merely being a seiyuu/idol.

    Stupid comment is stupid...

    Seriously. Whether she does leave voice acting over live TV does not mean she is "betraying her fans" or anything of the sort. Humans have a natural desire to reach higher places, and the more they get, the more they want.

    OM deserved to be taken down because it was doing something illegal (don't try to defend it, you'll loose) regardless of how much it helped people delve deeper into the more obscure titles found there.

    Nowhere between those two things do I see a relation other than Hirano's prospective jobloss at the hands of piracy.
