Aya Hirano Strikes Back – “Stop Telling Me to Die!”


Controversy idol Aya Hirano has made a defiant update in which she tells her legion of furious fans to stop saying they hate her and want her to die, calling them her “lifeline.”

This only prompted the response “then why did you cut off your own lifeline?” however…

Aya Hirano made a relatively lengthy update to her blog in which she attempts to extinguish some of the flames currently engulfing what is turning out to be the funeral pyre of her seiyuu career:

All of these romantic experiences helped support me, and I don’t want to continue this shallow and unrealistic façade.

I don’t want to write songs about some fantasy love. I should be able to show the real me.


Stop making Tweets telling me to “die!” or saying you hate me.

And after we just made a lifeline to each other… Even one as powerful as me is reeling under this.

So, from here on I hope you wish me well!

2ch is less than sympathetic:

Well you guys, what do you make of her diary?

I laughed at this excuse-like update. This will probably anger you lot even more.

“And after we just made a lifeline to each other…” – and just who hacked off that lifeline?

She’s turned and become defiant. It’ll be war from here on. Who will die first, us or Hirano? It won’t end until one does.

She’s just saying “It’s not my fault!”

As expected, she wants to move on. Who cares about her acting or singing though.

“So, from here on I hope you wish me well!” < Unfortunately, there is no “from here on.”

Indeed. She cuts off here lifeline, and is then like “Yoroshiku!” What an idiot.

Aya-chan, but you have no future in show-business now?

Now we know what to call all the fans who forked over cash for her – her “lifeline.”

The Hirano Lifeline.

We should abbreviate it a bit as that is too long – HLL. The HLL incident.

Hirano fans now truly do seem to be in HLL.

    Oh man is that getting ugly. Still, she does have a point in that she should be able to be honest about her love life without her fanbase of what appear to exclusively be stalkers declaring anathema. Even if that love life is, well, a bit more promiscuous than what society considers acceptable (I mentioned in the other post that I have no problem with the older men thing, it's that she did them all at once).

    Still, at least in theory, it's supposed to be about the work she does, not some otaku fantasy of virginal seiyuu and idols which does not and never has existed. I would hope this would be the start of the destruction of the lies that obsession is built on so seiyuu can actually, you know, voice act and not pretend to be socially stunted virgins instead of human beings.

    Well done, SpideyPHL...

    Like I said in the previous post...

    They should accept who she is and what she wants to do with her life...

    She has a great career and she's a damn good seiyuu...

    But...She is also a human being...

    She is not something that her fans could keep as a pet obsession and expect her to be locked in a cage of their fantasy, whims and desires...And the very moment that their fantasy world crumbles, and the illusion of her dissipates because of her real life choices, they go and tell her to die...

    Being a fan is one thing...Being a supportive and accepting fan is another...

    The ugliness of 'fanatics' and of human beings really show here on how they turned their back on a person they looked up to and admire...Some more (and creepy) than others...

    Because they EXPECT and want her to remain 'PURE'..? HA!!!

    Fools...Life does not work like that...

    If they cannot distinguish the fact that she is a human being that has a life and makes her own choices and who she wants to be with, then that's up to them...

    They don't have the right to keep her locked up in their fantasy cage until she dies of old age...

    She is a human being...She has her own life...Get over it and continue to support her for what she gave to the anime community at least...

    And damn it, they should accept the fact that she is AYA HIRANO, and not Konata or Haruhi...

    I really love the latter two characters...Aya Hirano gave them life and charm...

    No one has the right to tell her who to be with or what to do with her life...

    She deserves better than that...

    Those who tell her to die...Ignorant and in denial of the fact that they are powerless and insecure...

    Even fans could become the worst enemies...

    Goes to show human ugliness is just around the corner when their shattered fantasy gives way to the painful reality...

    Either way, everyone needs someone...

    Aya Hirano is no exception to that...

    If you are really her fan...Then...Accept her for what she is...

    Continue to support her and be her fan...Through the good times, and the bad times...

    If not for her, then her voice acting and the characters she gave life to, at the very least...

    "Either way, everyone needs someone..."

    ... And for these otaku, Aya Hirano might very well be that someone, even if it's one-sided.

    This isn't really an epitome of 'human ugliness' or anything. The ex-fans are telling her to die, but that's just words. Give them time and they'll probably just move on to a new idol / seiyuu. That's life.

    Everything about your post is crappy. Getting shocked that your idol(who probably doesn't even know you exist) has a personal life like everyone else? Just because you're lonely doesn't mean she has to! Gah! The anime industry panders to a mentally challenged crowd...

    It's not the tip of human ugliness, but a glimpse of it...

    But you're right...

    It's a pain to let go, but it's for the best that some of her (less than stable) ex-fans find another person to admire/obsession/fap material...

    And like you said, that's life...

    Your comment is smart.

    most of 2ch otakus don't get angry.
    they are just shocked by her comments and feel pity for her "downfallen" future.
    you know,Aya is not so good at singing though she is "singer". Her songs will not be admired by people who have been not interested in her career.

    I think she will soon disappeared from anime industry.Guessing from her remarks,it may be her will.She cut the fans off on purpose.
    So fans who have bought his CDs constantly went away in despair.
    Onlookers were disgusted by his infidelity behavior and avoid her.
    That is her choice.I don't care.

    Chop-logic is useless for earning a living.
    "Has a life"? yeah,go ahead as you like.
    There is no duty for fans to support her any more.
    sorry for crappy english.

    im not a fan of hiorano aya.sorry.
    Revealing a personal life is totally different from just having a personal life.former one affects fan's mentality,latter one not.

    Someone says "Do not mind".but,for fans,it is unreasonable.She could keep her unreal image as it is.But she did not.She dared to talk her romantic life in detail even though she could imagine how fans react to her words.
    People in 2ch think that she leaked her romance relationship"s" with an aim of getting [ new ] [ non-otaku ] [ girl ] fans and rejecting [ old ] [ otaku ] [ boy ] fans.I think its not true...I cant make her aims out.

    you dont know.A girl co-star in グータンヌーボ named 倉科カナ(actress,idol) talked about her past romantic relationship"" briefly not to break her unreal image that her fans have.but Aya did not.she leaked out her romance relationship"s" excessively.

    本音[hon-ne](real intention) and 建前[tatemae](expedient word;lie) are so fuc*ing important traditions in japan.She knew that.but she did not keep it.So jap otakus got very confused."Why she did break this tacit rule?"

    So to sum up what the Anon(s) at 03:52 and 06:02 is/are saying:

    Hirano was aware of her fans' feelings for her, yet dropped this message with no regard for those feelings(as opposed to attempting to soften the impact by omitting or temporarily withholding certain information, rather than pouring it all out at once).

    That this is what it seems to them at least.

    Eh. I just see someone who stopped liking/doing their job and still wants to be paid for it.

    The idol's career is all about crafting an illusion (the pure perfect persona) and fans who want such a fantasy buy it up. It's a simple marketplace transaction.

    This idol has decided to stop maintaining the illusion, so naturally, what do you think happens to her fans?

    Don't get me wrong, Hirano-san is fully free to live her life as she sees fit. Otaku who make noises of death threats are quite out of line. But at the same time, what kind of reaction was she reasonably expecting? If you work at a kindergarten, getting puked on is part of the job after all...

    I agree with you guys, about Hirano only being truthful, however she was naive if she thought a lot of her fans liked her because of her voicing ability, it's disgusting when you think of it like that, but it's the sad truth, and she should've been at least aware of that enough to not bait, a good percentage of her fans on.

    It's just the realistic Kannagi incident all over again.

    It does show you how shallow seiyu themselves are though, she admits to liking plenty of men, however she's never been pregnant, because she knows, im sure for a fact about the % of fans who liked her for 'that reason'. Both sides do ploys to keep their fame, but the mass is always likely to win, I feel sorry for her but she is stupid for admitting it in such a floozy way, what does she expect, and what do her fans expect her to say a virgin, naive of them as well.

    I was thinking that all those show-biz anime about the evil producers making the idol break up with her boyfriend were way overdone, but if the Aya Hirano fan-base is a typical reaction when their idol's love-life becomes public, it seems a lot more realistic.

    No wonder "otaku" in Japan has so many more negative connotations (somewhere between NEET and hentai) when compared with the same term in the US. These guys have a real problem with reality.

    It's not about REALITY, though. Any characters she voices and the image they engender is pure fantasy.

    Linking personality traits of characters to the actors who portray them - in any genre - is quite a common phenomenon. Part of getting really into any show is the willing suspension of disbelief. Very few actors are able to survive a personal life scandal that destroys their cultivated image and exceeds people's ability to separate that from their work.

    Certainly, she is free to live her life as she sees fit - but she traded on an image that is no longer supportable. Now, if she wanted to voice aggressive, slutty characters: no problem.

    She probably can find another job and make money instead of always catering to psycho fans.

    I, for one, have respect for her, more should do the same, maybe the psychos would hang themselves when they find out that every voice actress they idealized actually is a human being and has feelings just like any other, and those feelings include love and wish to fuck.

    As a Hirano Aya fan, I'd say she should have lived her life the way she wanted and keep on lying to her fans about it. We're happy as long as "our" reality is the way we want it, there's no merit in "being true to yourself" to the public eye, you're already putting on make up and false personalities, so already lying to everyone around you.

    You know those people who stalk celebrities? 2ch sounds like stalker central. Maybe the police should raid some of there homes.

    There is enjoying anime and AV idols, then there is 2ch, not only is it unhealthy for people at 2ch but it's extremely bad for the person they choose to harass.

    I wouldn't be that surprised if she kills herself over the continued harassment, then I hope they arrest some people from 2ch.

    They are complete filth to society and don't give anything worthwhile back, they just start burning down houses or killing people when they are being threatened.

    It's exactly the same I tried to say in the previous post of this matter.

    You hit the right points, and I totally support that kind of reasoning, they are being such a bitches, acting like that.
    In anime, when I see people like that my only desire is for them to die and fast!!!
    Everyone have their lifes, those shut-ins have no right to decide how idols and VAs should be, and if the japanese anime community is mostly composed of people like those shits then we, the so called "thiefs" are way more otakus then they are, as we respect give respect to everyone and everything of the anime universe...

    Nobody is owed a career that pays hundreds of thousands of dollars and is based on the thoughts and ideas of your (admittedly) crazy fanbase. She fucked up, alienated her "lifeline" and now she might just be finished.

    Was she talented? yeah, but that was only one part of the reasons why people gave a shit about her. Accepting her for who she is? that's not really part of what she sold her Otaku fanbase in the first place now is it?

    i have said this from the beginning. she has a good voice and thats it.

    here lets take this quote, don't know how good its translated, but i will trust that it conveys the message accurately.

    "All of these romantic experiences helped support me"

    basically saying she fucked people who had money and power, to further her carrier, and even than, even if she liked them, she also cheated on them. saying in the interview, dated many at one time, conveying some amount of emotional attachment, and that she cheated at the same time.

    now im not going to be on the otaku side here, but i cant even consider her a good person anymore at this point.

    she could have shut the fuck up, not said anything, or at least said im not a virgin, and i like to date men, get the fuck over it, and i would have liked her for haveing balls to say it. but going on and on about dateing older men (people who have money, power, or can further her career) many at the same time (if she or they had any emotional attachment, she was CHEATING ON THEM) and the dumb bitch told that to her "fans" but not only that, but to all of japan who wants to google her name.

    i have no respect for her as a person
    i dont want her to have a career any more, because she as a person pisses me off, and dont want to hear, even if it is a decent one, her voice any more
    and all i can hope is that she realizes that she fucked up big time, alienating her former "fans" and probably getting her self labeled as a cheating slut who fucks to further her former career.

    LOL You're so full of shit you sound like some whinny virgin otaku who can't get any. I assume you have the perception of looking into her life and feeling her feelings and thoughts. Hmmmm..? I assume that by support it helped he emotionally through life, not everyone is a big fucking slut whore.

    the older man probably just friend with benefit

    the older man probably just enjoy the sex as much as she did...so that's could mean no cheating

    being honest is a good think....although yeah, think about time and places....

    i can see your point here, but you're overreacted...also there's a possibility that she believe in her fan, unknown that things will turns out like this....remember that she being a little bit dumb...^^

    but i must admit, is reeeeaaalllyyy interesting and funny how they reacted....

    YEAH she just have to learn about the world but using the harsh way...

    Your girlfriend is ONE, though.

    The problem isn't that those men are older, the problem is that I can't really take things like:

    "In this world,there is such thing as TRUE LOVE.
    She is a HUMAN with EMOTIONS.
    She FEELS,she LOVES,she KISSES,she HUGS and she FALLS IN LOVE."

    seriously, when we're talking about someone who openly admits she had relationships with several men at once.

    Do I care? No. Does it change my opinion of her as a dubber? No. But please don't try to start the pity party and don't talk about love and shit.

    Her fans are crazy and useless rejects, and she's an idiot. Don't accuse others of assuming unlikely things when you yourself try painting an unrealistic and idealised portrait of someone comparing her to your personal and totally unlike experience.

    She FEELS,she LOVES,she KISSES,she HUGS and she FALLS IN LOVE.

    I am a 20 year old male,and I also love my partner to be older than me.
    My last girlfriend was 26 years old.

    And I loved her because of who she is,not because of nice gifts.She was poor living with her parents.

    So if you are going to come here talking this shit,you better get ready to fight.
    Because people in here are gonna disagree with you so hard you will probably never come back here again.

    I'll say this one more time.
    You are one messed up son of a bitch.
    With probably no life.
    An otaku basement dweller.

    One more thing.

    It is not HER fault that these people have gone love crazy for her.

    She deserves a life,she is a human like you and me.

    Now seriously,GROW THE FUCK UP.

    "All of these romantic experiences helped support me"

    Somehow turns into:

    "basically saying she fucked people who had money and power, to further her carrier, and even than, even if she liked them, she also cheated on them. saying in the interview, dated many at one time, conveying some amount of emotional attachment, and that she cheated at the same time."

    Good going sounding like a complete fucking retard by imagining up details, I'm sure you'll fit into the otaku community just fine.

    Don't know what kind of fucked up people you've been picking up from dating sites, alidan, but you have a really, really warped view of relationships. Before you start commenting on your wild fantasies of other people's relationships, maybe you should find a stable one for yourself first.

    And here's a hint: the relationship will last longer if you don't yell at her and call her a money-grubbing bitch.

    money and power.

    marry = you want the money
    date = you get nice shit as gifts
    or in her case
    date = his power (possession in place or work) to further her career

    and to make it worse, dated several at a time makes that all the more true, or she is a cheating slut, one of the two, i'm leaning towards furthering her career though. i mean its either she fucked her career forward, or she cheated on multiple people at a time.

    now i ask this every time i remember, did she drop any name in those interviews that would give us some context, because if she sais nobody, there are two reasons.

    1 they are not famous, or at least in the limelight, which i would severely doubt given that she is.
    2 they have been producers or people who could further her career.

    now if they were in publics eye a bit, we probably would know by now because she came out, and why not him? if he was in the limelight he probably wouldn't care about some fucking otaku and would want to be able to brag about her.

    sounds like you are telling me that cheating on people is ok, wow how fucked up of a love life must you have had to make that even seam ok.

    now lets put it this way. your former fans are pro stalkers who most would never approach you unless its over the interent. they will find him and they will harass him.

    now 2 reasons for not just saying it is because...

    1 he is normal.
    2 he is your boss and you fucked for where you stand today.

    number 1 doesn't seam likely, because she is relatively famous, that gives her perks that others don't. like finding that good looking guy who is "famous" and older. i honestly dont see her going to a bar, or where ever she would pick up a older person.

    and if that person is relatively famous, what the fuck would he care about some otaku unless he was a va too? its not like being hated by 2d lovers like them (former aya "fans") would have ever supported him in any way to begin with.

    like i am saying, unless she drops a name of someone, than you can only assume. somehow 15:32 managed to assume that she is not cheating, and indecisive.

    well let me put it this way. im going out with someone, and she fucks another guy, i stop seeing that bitch. like i said above, apparently he got cheated on so often that he now expects it as a normal thing in his life... i just realized it could be a female. in that case you are defending someone who cheats because you do the same shit.

    you know its hard for me to even understand how everyone became so naive.

    exactly how dumb are you all? do you think japan is like many other western countries?

    like i said, she has no reason in the world to hide who she is dateing, or at the very least fucking.

    she even said she cheats on them, openly.

    now there are 2 reasons for that, 1 she is a heartless bitch, or 2 there was no love at all in there. and the only reason for number 2 to be true is if it was all business.

    and lets just go with Anonymous 08:14 for a minute here. women are looking for many things, someone who looks good (you ever wonder why some women stay with a complete asshole), someone who can support them, and someone who they like.

    i dont look good,
    i cant support them,

    so all thats left is people who they like talking to you, and honestly people like that, once you are an adult are all taken by people who realized they were special long before you met them. so all im left with are people who are difigureingly ugly, a shallow bitch or a gold digger.

    "like i said, she has no reason in the world to hide who she is dateing, or at the very least fucking."
    Here's two reasons that immediately pop up:
    Wait, you're failing to find a reason for her to respect the privacy of others by not naming them on public television without their permission and (whether deliberately or inadvertently) protecting them from the masses of raging ex-fans? Are you serious?

    "now there are 2 reasons for that, 1 she is a heartless bitch, or 2 there was no love at all in there. and the only reason for number 2 to be true is if it was all business."
    Or she just has a lot of "friends with benefits", or she subscribes to the thought that dating is the process in which you find someone you want to have a long-term relationship with and isn't just an unofficial marriage, or she's just really fucking indecisive. Just because you're bitter and can't think of anything other than negative reasons doesn't make it the only reasons. Goddamn.

    Unless he has hard proof that in her case, she leeched money from all those men, then he/she is talking out of his/her ass.

    How hard is it to understand that otaku, out of whatever weird reasons ever, hate outings like this to the death?

    She should've either stayed in otaku business and kept the facade up, or she should've said goodbye to otaku business and moved on.
    She can't have both personal breathing room and mindless otaku buying whatever she touches no matter how bad it is.

    Doing both is kind of like "Oh, keeping a clean image is too much of a bother for me, so I quit doing that. But I still hope you people will continue to spend your money brainlessly on my overpriced merchandise."

    This is also true, indeed.
    But I would still want her to remain as a VA, because she is good.

    I'm baffled on why she responded to those idiots. It's a waste of time... really. Not worth it.

    Well, Aya is a bit of an airhead so I guess maybe we shouldn't expect her to make well thought-out decisions.
    I wish her well and all that, but only out of politeness. She stops voice acting, so she passed over my horizon in many ways, and I'm frankly a bit puzzled why there's still so many articles on Sankaku about her. Are we so addicted to drama? Oh, what do you know, I guess we are...
    I wonder if no one ever told her that it's usually a bad idea to burn bridges.

    Well... Hirano doesn't seem to make the best decisions on how to manage things, it seems.

    Still, I wonder what the manager she hired is doing. Part of his work is, or should be, to advise her how to act in situations like this.

    I don't know where the idea of virginal idols came from, I always assumed they all had lovers already.

    It isn't about being virginal, it's about selling an image.

    Lovers? No problem if it is kept low-key. Publicly announcing that you are boffing several dudes at once? Oddly enough, that ruined the pure-and-innocent image for many people. Go figure.

    Honestly, if this girl voiced a sexually aggressive character, there wouldn't be an issue.

    I'm curious how Kikuko Inoue and Megumi Hayashibara handled that thing. The marriage thing. Also, I think that at least Inoue has a child...

    Maybe when they "came out of the closet as heterosexual women", otaku weren't such a mob of obsessive psychopats? :/

    When they got married, I suppose they were already veteran seiyuus (around 30 years old, technically the age limit to get married in Japan). Aya is still very young being only 22 years old.

    I don't know if Kikuko Inoue is married/have children). But I know Hayashibara is married and have one child.
