Aya Hirano: “I Hate Thick Condoms!”


Aya Hirano’s remaining “life-liners” are currently flat-lining with the troubled seiyuu’s latest TV interview – she reveals she prefers thin condoms and claims she was banned from a bar for misusing her seiyuu talents in a lascivious manner.

The main bombshell is this remark:

“I wish they’d stop [using] 0.2mm thick condoms.”

She also mentions that she was banned from a bar for unbecoming conduct:

“I was banned from a bar for saying lewd things in an anime voice…”

The show (shown below) was the latest in a long series of variety programme appearances:


Hirano’s latest travails do not end there – in a series of Tweets (she has resumed her Twittering, quickly falling victim to a series of trolls and detractors) she explained she felt uncomfortable socialising with other seiyuu and that she preferred dining alone.

As well as saying again she has only a small circle of friends, she also revealed that her shy temperament had earnt her the nicknames “Sadako” and “Ayanami” at middle school, quite the contrast to the extroverted image associated with her characters and seiyuu image.

Fortunately, her other remarks tend to indicate whilst she might often be stuck dining alone, she rarely has to sleep alone.

Not all of her “life-liner” fans are dead just yet – one of the last shares his latest purchases (multiple copies of her new gravure album, made after the interview above), saying “she’s certainly an expensive woman!” and prompting some rather unkind responses in return:

    She was banned because of "saying lewd things in an anime voice…"?

    That bar needs to shut down or tell me where is it, I'll go shut it down myself.

    Aya what are you doing? Did she get a hold of the "how to keep yourself in the media" playbook from Lindsay/Paris/Kardashians? What a *facepalm*

    Though I might pay to hear a lewd Haruhi..

    Well, there was that Mr. Children song where it was the woman complaining about the condom being too thick, and that was at 0.05 mm.

    no, with a brutal roar, which accidentally tears down any building in a 100m \/ area behind the bar as well!

    Why the hell did no one have a recording device when she said these "lewd things" in an anime voice?? Or at least tell us which voice she used (I prefer Konata, but I'll gladly take Haruhi too)

    No one wants to hear Konata making orgasm noises. Don't you realize how annoying that would be?

    That's a very good point... what the tumbling fuck is wrong with that bar...? Then again, it does bring up the question of what exactly she said.

    Or are bars in Japan only allowing lewdness for men with ties around their heads?

    I have thinner condoms than 0.2mm.

    They're 0.0mm thick. I call them barebacks.

    0.2 mm is crazy thick for a condom. Most condoms are less than half that thickness.

    I dislike condoms, especially thick ones. You might be able to go on a bit longer, but who cares if it doesn't feel like it should.

    Aya Hirano's the most human-like seiyuu, and out of most celebrities I've seen so far in so many years. But people hate that? God damn it, can't people accept that we're all just people?

    Double standard seems to be favored in extremes during these situations.

    I initially thought she was a straightfoward type when she admit her liking in older men. I used to respected her for that but this is very stupid. Looks like she did in on purpose, trying to say sexual-related stuffs to catch people attention.

    This seiyuu is my idol. But being outward honest and normal to yourself, is that a taboo in Japan ?

    Do you like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Sara Reid, etc.?

    I mean, they're pretty honest with their life. Aside from being rich, I don't know why people would hate them.

    wow what a lot of replies.

    I, myself think she is quite cute and definately want her to talk to me in an anime voice, hell yeah, I`d ban her if she didn't lol.

    Joking aside, I have just received a copy of her album "riot girl" it aint that bad, for a speed grungre punk effort it is quite listenable too.

    Maybe that was the problem, it didn't fit into the mainstream j-pop so was slated??

    I really don't understand the world society, it seems we lift the psople up to lofty heights and take perverse pleasure in ripping their wings off and watch them come screaming back down again... its sick!

    Fear not aya-chan you still have 1 fan left..

    I think her choice of music genre has jack to do with her mainstream popularity as a singer. It has more with what her agency plans to do with her and how powerful they are at bringing up their 'talents'.

    Look at Kumi Koda. She's not at all different to Britney Spears, what with zero musical instrument ability, draggish singing that relies much on Spears' style and plenty of skin showing along with her suggestive dancing. Yet she's more well known.

    Idols work that way in Japan.

    Some people in here brought up Miley Cirus, but as much as I hate to put her in a relatively better perspective, as least she can play a guitar.
