Seiyuu to Otaku: “Have You Losers Ever Had a Date!?”

rie-santanaka

Recently several seiyuu seem to have lost their patience with creepy otaku stalkers, making some distinctly unkind remarks about their annual seiyuu surveillance operations.

The practice they mention is the infamous Christmas seiyuu stalking event seiyuu otaku run each year, with the Christmas 2010 event provoking even more contempt than usual online.

In this event seiyuu otaku gather data on each seiyuu over Christmas (such as whether they updated their blog on Christmas Eve, whether they had an alibi, and even whether their photographs were correctly dated) and construct a chart of their evidence in the hopes of making sure their target seiyuu spent their Christmas chastely preserving their maidenhood.

Masaya Onosaka (best known as Vash the Stampede) and Yui Kano (Cecil in Gosick) had the following exchange about it on a recent seiyuu radio programme:


Highlights:

Onosaka: “Have these losers ever even been on a date!?”

Kano: “I don’t see what’s so interesting about who I’m having sex with. It’s flattering they’re interested at all I suppose.”

Kano: “It is quite cute… they are showing what pure little hearts they have!”

Onosaka: “It’s idiotic. I want to know just who does this stuff.”

It should be noted Kano was given a “white” rating by 2ch as she was in the studio, as was Aya Hirano, who appeared live on TV. On the other hand, Nana Mizuki was given a “black” rating for not updating her site to let 2ch know she was not having sex with some male in their imaginary stead.

Kano also ponders whether she would still be considered “white” if she spent Christmas having sex with another woman…

    First I thought Rie Tanaka said this, but those are only undesirable seiyuu.

    I doubt anyone is stalking Yui Kano or Masaya Onosaka...the first never had a significant role or voiced a popular character and the other is a non-bishonen-male, ergo, there are no crazy fangirls after his virginity.

    As long as seiyuu's don't want to give up on making money with their idol status they will need to keep their private life, well, private.
    It's really just a simple business. You act cutesy and don't let anything private like your sex life into public and you get money.
    They don't have to make this trade, but they chose it themselves.

    I just wish I could partake in that business, too...

    Just because the other, more pop voice actresses didn't put it down into words gives no guarantees that they're not annoyed with the stalking. It's as if the have to put up with a whole lot more annoying hassle for being some 'seiyuu' than some movie star that the whole country knows, and they get less.

    Assuming you're some hot chick at the top of your otaku career, would you really wanna crumble it down by saying something stupid, which causes all of the Internet to troll you day and night and getting death threats?

    The only reassuring thing about the Japanese trolling is that they hadn't forced the trollee to buy a dog, get more than 7 passwords, send them random pizza delivery along with gay porn to their then-revealed home address. Otherwise, Aya Hirano wouldn't still be alive now.

    You speak as if this is a Japanese phenomenon.

    You think there's no paparazzi waiting for a movie star to screw up? You think there's no crazy stalker fanatics for Johnny Depp? Or other famous hollywood actors?

    It is no different in your white man country. Sex scandals can destroy careers. The only difference is that some white people use sex videos to increase their popularity.

    This 100%.

    It's stupid to worry so fucking much about someone's personal life. Let them live. Seiyuu--and any other country's actors, voice or otherwise--are no less human than you.

    Who they're fucking/dating/whatever is probably not your concern.

    Because that's not the image he's selling. Therefore, his fans were never concern about that in the first place. They are stalking and keeping track of whatever it is that their delusions of him happens to be.

    "Purity" is much more of a female idol thing, girls tend to care about it a lot less when looking at guys. In fact, I would even say that most girls dig guys who's been around or is "experienced".

    Also, America is a much more sex-based culture and is much more open about sex. Despite whatever delusions you might have about Japan based on what you see in the media, the internet, or your own limited and biased misconceptions, here in America is where sex dominants.

    The only problem is, their just trying to have a normal relationship and a normal Christmas/Christmas Eve which is completely different from a sex scandal or someone fucking up, smart one.

    Despite the fact that the paparazzi constantly chase after stars, they at least have the tact to leave them and their families and loved ones alone on Christmas. I mean seriously, when was the last time you saw an article about so-and-so having sex or going on dates on Christmas.

    On the stalker bit, you don't see Johnny Depp stalkers actively rating his "purity" by posting whether he and his girlfriend had sex or not.

    And on another note, in this day and age, why even bother talking about purity at all when most people lose it coming out of high school, some even sooner.

    Lets just leave it as, creepy otaku are disturbed, delusional individuals and have no place on this planet.

    Second that, fellow sankaku member.
    They're not interessting enough to actually stalk them, 2D beats 3D any day.
    Everyone on 2ch should activate what little they have left in their head. Seiyuu are human as well, not super perfect beautiful godlike beings.

    Geez, when will they ever learn...
    Now every Otaku is in discredit because of such stalking weirdos. Sucks~

    If you seriously think that 2D is better than 3D then you need to see a therapist. You've taken a flying leap from being an anime/manga fan to being seriously mentally ill.

    They ARE losers though if they never have sex, never had a girlfriend, and spend their Christmas stalking people online and "Policing" for their romantic lives.

    That's just incredibly pathetic and makes anime viewers look like incredible losers.

    I don't know about female arms, but I think it's abnormal if your wrist bone sticks out that much.

    I do not like Japan's variation of Christmas as I am a male & they get the bad end of the stick in regards to that day of the year but to be fair, I don't even celebrate the US's variation of it so I digress...
