Aya Hirano: “I’m Used To Everyone Hating Me”


TV talent and former seiyuu Aya Hirano explains that she doesn’t care that everyone hates her, as it has always been thus.


Recently, Hirano’s transition from seiyuu into generic B-rank celebrity has continued apace, as she is now a low-level actress – she has been cast as Kaori-chan in a special live action version of Sazae-san, due to air in January.

This announcement is however accompanied by more of her twittering:

I’m often told I take too much notice of my haters, but I think if they really do hate me I’ll just leave them alone. Ever since I was a middle schooler they’ve been bashing away at me on the net, and I’m used to being bullied now so I just expect this kind of environment and pay no attention.

In fact, I’m grateful to the people who do explain why they hate me.


So don’t worry about me! If I couldn’t stand that stuff I’d have been driven out of the industry a long time ago. I’m alright!

    Don't sweat it, Aya. I got your back. Just remember, a hater ain't nothing but a jealous little bitch.

    She's either a bit of a closet masochist, in denial, or a real trooper.

    But seriously: Knowing Japan, a lesser person would have fallen to social pressure or at worst taken the path of suicide.

    She may be quirky, she may be a difficult person, but she knows when to tough things out.

    I, for one, salute her resolve and decision.

    She's either a bit of a closet masochist, in denial, or an attention whore.

    She is a tough girl, being on the top and then plummeting to the hating pits of otaku bullying.

    But she can't say the bullies doesnt affect her, otherwise she never would've left her seiyuu career.

    I blame the balding jokes and Aya Style incident, really unfair.

    Bullying seems to be part of human nature.

    All the more reason to seek to be more than human.

    The trolls are used to bashing her too but the more we see it, the more blunt each blow becomes, which gets boring in the end as they move on to bashing something else cause that's what no-lifers do.

    Hang in there Hirano.

    What's funny is she was called stupid for doing something delightfully moe in having the bikini on upside down or whatever. If a character did that in an anime and was giggly about it they'd get insta-popularity amongst otaku. She does it and she's a retard. Lest we ignore the people at the photo shoot who didn't notice either, so...

    I'm not sure what she really did besides say she's a sexually open human being and 'betray' the otaku by not voice acting anymore (that one does anger me a bit I admit). And of course the hateful ones are the most vocal people, so keep that in mind.

    Why are people so stupid? The greatest thing anyone could ever do to someone famous that they hate is to actually leave the person alone and simply not talk about him/her anymore. You can hate, complain, whine, and troll about her until you passout.. but the only thing you will accomplish is to keep the person in the spotlight because of the attention and audience they attract.

    Until people shut up about her and get over it, she will never disappear. Being hated can keep someone in the spotlight just as much as being loved (Bush anyone?)

    Ironic.. the people who hate her, and want her to fail and go away are the same people who help her stay famous. Trolls and "life-liners" are accomplishing the exact opposite of what they are trying to do, and have yet to (and probably never will) figure it out

    *epic facepalm*

    If she was really ignoring the bullying she wouldn't be saying so much excuses that we hear so often of her. By acknowledging it she really isn't ignoring them.

    at some point as a bully you have to realize that your bullying has stopped having an affect and you are only doing it for your own pleasure. at that point i think its time to find a new target.
    the bullying actually helps to keep her in the news though. she could have easily teetered out of existence as another failed wannabe celeb.

    it because moe anime are so transient.
    anyone remember lucky star? haruhi suzumiya? Azumanga daioh?
    all those series get forgotten really fast just as k-on and its blobby ilk will be forgotten.
    they dont care because no one remembers her roles.

    i do think it's a good thing one can get used to being hated. we'd be extinct if it wasn't so.

    as long as not everyone hates you, you'll be fine.

    it is a kind of masochism, i guess?

    I agree, if they don't like her then just don't like her, there is no need to bash her because she isn't the pure innocent virgin people thought she was, she's a normal woman and i think of her exactly the same as i always did, i'll still listen to her music without thinking she betrayed me or otherwise :)
