Aya Hirano’s 5 Second Debut as Actress



Aya Hirano’s debut as an TV drama actress brings yet another much talked about new look – even if she only appears for a paltry 5 seconds.

The appearance, as future Kaori-chan in the live-action adaptation of Sazae-san:


Loli Kaori-chan:


In light of recent events, her appearance as a strictly imaginary character seems strangely appropriate…

    Were they trying to pull of a moment that can only work in anime. It feels weird in 3D XP even if it is Aya

    Are you sure you're not talking about Mai Nakahara?

    I believe she's 22 or 23. And there's no age to debut in something lol.

    Anyways, everyone start with small roles, I just hope she doesn't give up her seyuu carrer completely, I'll miss her voice :/

    Given name: 綾
    Family name: 平野

    Born in 1987. So she's in her twenties.

    OMG, she does Lucy from Fairy Tail. This woman has to be applauded for her tremendous number of roles, if nothing else.

    Hmm. Wait, I think I see a pattern. I think Hirano is the next

    So in about five years, she will probably get married to an older man, and eventually she will have a kid.

    Hayashibara got married in 1998, and I presume that these things go in cycles.

    Hayashibara had at least 150 roles. Hirano has had at least 83 roles.

    Theory: when a voice actress gets more than 75 roles, she starts accumulating psychic force from the Shinto gods. Eventually she passes into legend.

    Hirano is a good voice actress, but Hayashibara Megumi IS a legend.

    And the way Hirano is going, i think she will became a legend not for her work, but for her odd behavior/crazy tweets .

    Yo Aya, I know you're doing a great job recording your voice for that anime character and I'mma let you finish. But Megumi is one of the best voice actresses of all time. OF ALL TIME!!

    'plump little o'bachan'

    I've seen Asian girls with similar body types. They stay slim after pregnancy.

    So Aya is probably going to be thin until the day she dies - probably at age 100, the way Japanese life expectancies are going.

    I think gau may have been referring to the fact that she looks a bit older than normal here.

    Or, I'm assuming, because that's how it looks to me.

    I think this is a good move for Aya. She's pretty, young, and has a lovely voice. With a bit of training, she could become a very good actress.

    She actually looks great here, now if she can just avoid that drama she is always getting in & do some more voice acting roles in anime, she will be all set, I hope anyway...

    a bit? the clothing and hair make her look at least 10 years older, that smile in the top makes it at least 15-20 years older.

    I think Aya's cuteness has been overused.

    When I first saw her appearing on all those tv shows I got the impression she was being invited to those shows because she was the only cute voice actress out there. Well, we all know that's actually not the case at all.

    There are plenty more cute voice actresses out there that even have got more personality and charm than Aya imho.

    I agree. That first picture made her look like an old hag .. or worse. What's up with that '' smile '' .. That's no smile at all. Well I personally thought of her as cute though, but there has definitely been some better pictures ... And anyway : Too many articles on Aya, she's old .. move to new idol please.

    I have to be the obsessive one, but I counted seven seconds, not including her hands holding the tea.

    Aya always wanted to be an actress. However you look at it though, she's not good at it. If she would be a true professional she would realize that.
    She has other talents, like her work as a seiyuu or a an over-the-top storyteller.

    Right now, i guess she's trying to play the jack of all trades. Which is an epic fail.
    Seriously, she's a very welcome victim for the Japanese exploitation television shows. They certainly don't deny her lots of chances to make an ass of herself.

    It's sad to see a talented seiyuu prostitute herself like that in questionable celebrity shows.

    I wish Aya would stop trying to act cute. Her high-pitched voice doesn't suit her. Makes her sounds pretentious. And so is her smile. She should try acting in more serious shows, using her true, deeper voice.
