Aya Hirano “Finished as a Seiyuu”


Scandal seiyuu Aya Hirano’s voice acting career seems to have finally come to an end – her swarm of online detractors cannot help but notice that she has not netted a single role in the upcoming autumn 2011 anime season.

Her followers are as supportive as ever:

“She’s finished!”

“She never wanted to be a seiyuu in the first place, so this is good for her.”

“Who was this again?”

“There’s no demand for her any more!”

“She’s not a seiyuu any longer – stop appearing in anime, woman!”

“Did she even have any major roles apart from Haruhi and Death Note?”

“Don’t get too excited, haters – she still has a few ongoing roles.”

“There’s a rumour she has a role in Gundam AGE…”

“Don’t worry – she should be due in Kizumonogatari in 2012.”

“Shinobu-chan needs a new voice actress!”

“The life liners aren’t breathing any more…”

“It’s what you’d expect. Since the leaked pictures came out she’ll never land any new work. Expect her to announce her retirement as a seiyuu soon.”

“I’m really worried she will actually show up in an AV…”

Whether she will manage to hang on to her existing roles may not actually be a foregone conclusion either…

    I just hope that eventually she'll come back to her calling. I wouldn't want a talent like Aya to be gone now when she still has such a future ahead of her. I want her to suck it up and give every hater the flick off they deserve. Come back to the microphone and show us what she's still got.

    Anyone else think we should make our own petition that is more logically sound and better in every way but equally as pointless to let her keep her seiyuu roles?

    Seriously, 2ch is full of retards. I've truly underestimated their ability to confuse 2d with reality. I'm almost embarrassed to call myself an anime fan.

    I highly doubt she'll come back, as (I've heard) she didn't like being a seiyuu anyway.

    If she did though.. you have no idea how overjoyed I'd be. She was (and still is) my number one favorite seiyuu. ;;

    You're a sexist. She's been exposed as and has not denied sexually harassing and exploiting her co-workers.

    Yea, I am puzzled by this "active hate". If you do not like her (whether you think that her voice/singing is bad or you do not like her as a person), then just do not go to her concerts/buy her CDs/records/tapes or watch anime that she is in etc. You do not have to spend your time bitching about the person you do not like.

    I do not like a lot of artists (but mostly because I do not like their songs/etc, not the person), but the most I would do is to tune to a different station when the songs I do not like are played on the radio.

    As for Aya, I do not care what she does in her spare time, I think her voice acting is good and she also has a few songs that I like.

    I personally don't care, but here's an example why some idols are best to be virgins, or quasi-perfect: I like cherry pie, but I don't care where the cherry was imported from. Some others like cherry pie, and they care about the importation of the cherries. Now, knowing that you have these 2 types of customers, would you, as a baker, import the cherry from China, which might explode, but taste good at some point, or just get it fresh from America? You want to satisfy all your customers. What you do? Answer: you get the best ingredient, even though people like me or you don't care. BTW, I think you are a sad little virgin who needs to get laid.

    So what you're saying is...idols and celebrities should adhere to the image of what a bunch of OCD virgins who's self esteem is so far in the toilet that they need to resort to personal attacks to feel good about themselves, view such people?

    There are countless other seiyuus who are better than Aya, yet they hardly receive any attention.

    Maybe she will come back if she has her own seiyu/voice-acting school. Or she goes abroad (Hollywood/Bollywood), for some minor roles? Her career is seriously hurt because the leaked photos and for a Japanese in the entertainment industry like in anime/movie, there's no-one who wants to hire her. It's doesn't matter how good she was with voice-acting.

    She's the Charlie Sheen of Japan it seems now that I think about it. It is a pity though when i heard her roles they are good it's pretty dumb to base a person's voice acting jobs because of what they personally do. So what if she likes to get a lot of cock that's her business if she's a horny girl. You would think the otaku crowd would be encouraged thinking that perhaps they would have a chance with her if she's that loose lol.

    Haters will be haters although I don't fucking care what she will do as long as he didn't offend anyone or anybody. As for the sex picture I don't think it's offensive unless people in Japan are FUCKING CONSERVATIVE.

    You're a faggot. Aya-chan IS a good seiyuu, screw whatever anyone else thinks.

    I wouldn't watch Haruhi if someone else took over her role. Simple as that. She has a brilliant voice.

    Who gives a damn if she's having sex with her band members? She's a HUMAN GIRL. That's what HUMAN GIRLS do. They have sex. Same as men. We're human.

    Jesus christ you Aya-haters are faggots.

    She's a passionate seiyuu. But imo, she really only has 2 voices: haruhi and konata, and both voices annoy me to no end.

    Despite supposedly not attaining any new VA role for this upcoming season of animes, she's still doing voice work for a few on-going anime series from past seasons...so yeah.

    Not "supposedly", she isn't getting any new roles.

    Casting her as Lucy was a big mistake and I'm sure Studio Pierrot is hitting themselves on the head right now.

    Keep in mind, it's not Artefact saying that her career is down, it's 2ch. Here's merely "reporting" what they're saying.

    her personal or even seiyuu life is none of our business.

    but she does well as a seiyuu for most roles shes given. certainly not the best, but still more talented than most...

    i reckon this only be a lost to the industry (if this news is true) as ppl who cast roles will have 1 less to choose from.... oh well...
