Aya Hirano: “I Can’t Make Any New Music!”


Slatternly seiyuu Aya Hirano seems to be complaining that her evil record company masters are preventing her from making any new music.

In a series of remarks on Twitter, she reveals that she will not be able to record any new music or appear live for at least the duration of 2011.

Her only 2011 release seems likely to be a mere “best hits” compilation, due in April.

“There’ll be no live events to go with the album, nor any new songs or touring, for the same reason. Sorry if you were looking forward to them – I wanted to do them too.


My only scheduled release for this year is the best hits compilation. Unless the situation changes quite a bit I won’t be allowed to do anything musical.”

This is all thought to be the result of contractual or agency issues, although she has not revealed exactly what is going on.

If true, it is something of a blow considering her career now appears to be limited to appearing on trashy variety shows and making inflammatory comments on Twitter.

    Touche. I'm annoyed at her attitude. She's so pretty, and she's just ruining herself by making all these 'woe is me' statements. How did this all start anyway? Was it just back when she admitted she likes older men, and ended up having her fan base crumble?

    Well, let's be honest - the only reason that all the hate got lumped on her at first was that so many of her "fans" got pissed off that she wasn't actually like the imaginary version they had in their heads. Granted, she hasn't done much to help herself since, but this started with a lot of whiny virgins having it dropped on them that sorry, your favorite voice actress is not celibate. Surprise surprise.

    I wanted to believe that all that hate is completely out of the otaku disappointment. Nowadays though, that's no longer the case.

    In between stupid Twitter posts and her expanding forehead, she isn't making things any better for herself.

    Back on the topic, I was like "WHAT?!" when I read the title, because I don't remember Hirano actually MADE any songs. All she did is karaoke.

    Due to the contract issues she will re-name herself "the-artist-formally-known-as-Aya"

    I still really like her Riot Girl CD and if you've ever heard the CD of Haruhi Soundtrack live by Tokyo Philharmonic, Aya belts out an impressive version of "God knows...".

    I liked Riot Girl also. It had that poppy chick rock thing going on like misono, Puffy, and Nana Kitade's eariler stuff. Also if I'm not mistaken, that live of "God Knows" was on youtube and yeah, she did really well with it.

    I don't think she has anything else to hold the better parts of her career together anymore if this is the case...

    She will become a shadow of her formal self by 2012 at this rate...

    Nobody knows what exactly is going on inside the Entertainment Industry. That industry is full of lies and contradictions. So even though Aya Hirano is being like that now, I still can't judge her unacceptable.

    All I need is her voice in my animé D:

    her album "riot girl" was not that bad, a different slant on most of the j-pop genre, more of a retro punk sound, i quite liked it.

    Sad... She got popular in the first place due to the Haruhi craze. But after she got popular, she forgot who her original fans were. So she shut out all her otaku fans and thought that she was a superstar.

    Now she's just a attention whore.

    Granted anyone who uses Twitter to talk about their own lives are attention whores, but not many of their tweets get posted on a different website than their own.

    Who's more at fault, Aya for using Twitter like millions of other people (including celebrities from all around the world regardless of their Rank or how popular they are) or Artefact for reporting it and treating it like news?

    Personally I'm blaming the latter.

    Fuck sake, Aya!

    Whose telling you to waste your life like this, get a new manager?

    Seriously girl, if you sort this shit out now you might still get 15 - 20 year career lifespan.

    If you are not voice acting or singing, then you have essentially no exports and no overseas fans, because I ain't receiving those happy jappy TV shows over in the UK.

    Actually, learn English and come over here while you're still young. Our music industry turns talentless losers into superstars everyday, so we're have no trouble with you. Being able to sing would put you ahead of most people.

    Correction, that only works for non-Asians in the western world. Hikaru Utada actually speaks English fluently and she STILL wasn't able to make an impression in her international debut.

    Now if someone with Hikaru Utada's credentials and talent can't make it big in the western media, like hell a small fry whose biggest claim to fame is anime voiceovers could ever.

    Well, not if he or she has a massive backing of Jewish lobbyist.

    Hell, they pushed Paris Hilton upon us before and sold that shit still. Nevermind the fact that she made the whole world see her trying to do boobjob to a guy with a chest as flat as hers. The fact is, EVERYONE should know that she can't sing, but she was still unleashed upon us.

    Well, it depends. She only has a handful of contractual performances left because of her own volition, not because the evil company behind her magically doesn't want to make money of her. Seriously...

    I wonder if this chick is bipolar. For a short time I dated a chick who acts just like her, who was bipolar. One minute she'd be the sweetest angel you've ever met, the next she'd imagine that the whole world was against her. Which was a real fucking waste, as that one was a 10. I mean a strait up 10.

    The music industry is of the devil.
    They are sapping her soul, that part of her with true spirit, true talent, true creativity. And they are facilitating her downfall/ruin. It's a complex, deliberately unnecessary "Human Sacrifice". They do this to almost all their "Acts", it's just a process. Phil Ochs sang of this, I'd recommend YouTubing "Crucifixion" by him...

    I know.

    I know this work of the devil quite well.

    My family is of a "Bardic" line.
    And, ever since the modern "Music Industry" appeared we found ourselves blocked from any chance to appear in any publishing, acting, and double plus musical "Mainstream" thing. Oh, we've found other work, doctors, engineers, carpenters, but we've all had "The muse" inside us wanting to burst out. But who cares if we could just spontaneously start performing/playing and people around would crowd around, compliment, tip, etc. The music industry kept us out one way or another, often by starting to hire then dropping unexpectedly for no reason from a project. Then it flaunted it's hiring of utter crap acts and a few people who's only 'talent' was 'beauty' and acting skill was 'the casting couch' or 'bohemian grove leather room' skills.

    I really wish "MP3 Trading" would do the damage they claim it does as they shriek for government handouts and more laws that aren't to prevent 'theft' but will eventually combine to help push off the net any true 'independent' act.

    Those that own the media literally are of the devil. It's not just being an 'honest' businessman and wanting to hold a 'monopoly' on their product. They want to make sure the product is vile, degenerate, for they hate mankind and themselves and will do all they can to bring everything they touch low.

    I think Aya is making up things here.
    While the music industry is backwards and evil, i doubt they'll ask Aya to stop touring because of a compilation CD release.
    If anything, capitalist common sense dictates to promote the compilation CD with a singing tour through Japan.
    It does make a bit sense for her not to make new music if she'd tour, but if not, then the company who contracted her wouldn't prevent her from making new music unless they actually think she'd sell abysmally due to her current negative image.
    Or there's no compilation CD and the company just wants the contract to end without getting into a financial loss with new music from Aya.

    In any case, either she's lying or her self-made image caught up with her.
    I think she's just a lying attention whore.
    She'd do best to go back to voice acting and stop making so much controversy over herself.
