Aya Hirano has angrily told her fans to stop calling themselves “lifeliners,” inciting the usual storm of opprobrium.

The background to her remarks is that Aya Hirano’s remaining fans are now universally known (unkindly) as “lifeliners” after she said on Twitter that “Stop telling me to die or saying you hate me! I’ve finally got a lifeline to everybody!”

Aya Hirano is evidently not pleased with this:

Also, won’t you stop it already with the “lifeliner” stuff?

I only meant to call Twitter my lifeline. I think you’d understand if you read what I originally wrote.

Why is everyone interpreting that in such a warped way? It’ll cause another fuss so I’ll not say any more!

Her increased irritation with fans is probably the result of the sceptical reaction to her taxi story.

Hirano actually now has over 100,000 followers, although it seems likely most of these are the Twitter equivalent of ambulance chasers…

One of them subsequently pointed out that the term has stuck, and she immediately changed her tune:

Indeed! I suppose there is something to it after all! Well, I don’t really mind them using it but I wonder what they’ll do if they become tired of it.

Who cares what they think, call me what you will! The haters got really worked up over what I just said too…

2ch naturally snaps up the bait:

This person has 0 resistance to which way the wind is blowing, doesn’t she?

More fuel!

Hirano needs to give up Twitter… and her ability to resist the influence of others is nil.

Her agency probably thought it would be a good idea for someone like this to take up Twitter…

If she doesn’t periodically stir the pot like this she’ll be forgotten.

She’s doing this deliberately, she’s actually a genius at manipulating 2ch!

Who could have guessed 6 years ago that she would end up like this?

You guys love her way too much!

Aya Hirano is everyone’s toy!

Damn, she’s really using the haters…

This is all because of the taxi stuff – she came off as being mentally ill there.

Hirano: “The taxi disturbance has stopped so I’ll start another little fire to keep things going!”

Why does she always talk to the people who hate her?

Why does she keep pouring oil onto the flames like this?

I’ve started to like her. She’s moe like this. Aren’t weird girls nice?

She’s probably checking the threads about herself on 2ch as she does this…

You guys are playing with Hirano too much – what are you going to do when your toy breaks?

How many followers would she have left if she told everyone but lifeliners to quit following her?

    Its not her ability to resist others, its her obsession with keeping as many people around as possible to feed her attention seeking disease.

    But as if being a following fan of a person in particular wasnt creepy enough, giving yourselves a weird and creepy name as well just makes it worse.

    I understand neither party.

    How do you know she have this obssession to attention? She just tweets anything she wants to her followers, is not like she's starting threads in 2ch asking for attention. If one don't like her, just don't follow her.

    I dislike Justin Biber, so, I'm not waiting his next tweet to madly badmouth him, I don't give a fuck if his gay or going to moon with a horse, srlsy guys, calling her attwhore but seeking her tweets, whathefuck.

    I think she may be calling out for attention without her knowing.

    It is actually somewhat the same thing for me at times too. Everybody who posts online has a certain personality and stance and tries to work around the communities and have their voices heard.

    It just looks to me like she just may not be as sly at using it. Perhaps naive in her approach to the sheer amount of sarcasm and cynicism of the net.

    But I agree. If her tweets are popular and she wants to voice things out, more power for her.

    If SHE is an attentionwhore, then I am too, for occasionally cracking jokes online.

    "How do you know she have this obssession to attention? She just tweets anything she wants to her followers, is not like she's starting threads in 2ch asking for attention. If one don't like her, just don't follow her."

    Key words: obsessession[sic], attention, tweets followers, "starting threads"

    Can you piece together the logic here?

    No, they love you for the characters you do that feeds thier fancy. They don't love you for being you. Every crazy fan knows their favorite voice goddess has a 'real' life but they don't need to have it shoved in their face.

    Not because she is a seiyuu, but it's because this wonman is a absolute attention whore that many people get sick of her. By the way, you still stands for her, lifeliner? She doesn't need you anymore...hahahahaha.

    She seems kind of contradicting if anything, she should really make up her mind & stick with it in regards to what she wants to tell her followers...

    But I guess this is just talking to the wind at this point I mean really...

    Thats Japan for you. They set a fantastical bar on what normal life should be but when reality catches up to them instead of coping they just commit suicide. Its sad but i think Aya Hirano is on the way to that end. Thanks in part to both "lifeliners" and haters pushing along the way.

    You know there are other idols in Japan like Tina, Ayaka, and Utada Hikaru. Why all of this creepy obsession posting blogs every other day over ONE IDOL? Every article contradicts anything about not giving her attention when she is put up on a pedestal so often.

    Where did this stupid obsession start? What did you go and see her at some public gathering and she winked at a general direction of a crowd of slobbering otaku and you thought to yourself, "One day she will be mine. She will notice all of the tabloid attention I bring to worthless individuals and have sex with me."

    Is there a way to "not see" posts with certain tags? This is turning into an Aya Hirano fansite, a post for every TINY little thing she says or does.

    ...I think it's about time I stop paying attention to this confused woman. I recommend that this site's users should be given a sort of 'filter' function that blocks any news containing user-determined keyword or tag from being displayed on said user's account.

    Then again, them seiyuus don't even know about Sankaku Complex so I guess it's OK if I continue to talk shit about her here because there's no real attention given?

    Now I'm confused myself...

    I'm surprised she hasn't imploded her twitter account yet, that's what I would've done if people started bashing me on it.
    She definitely doesn't like it, but I guess she wants to keep it around for fame and the attention and money it brings.

    Artefact stop posting this shiz already, Hirano is NOT that special and I'm really getting tired of seeing article after an article about Hirano, no matter what she does, even if it's a really small thing and not relevant to anything.

    Ps. She should die.
