Aya Hirano has revealed she actually lived in New York for several years as an infant, and paid a visit there for the benefit of TV audiences – meeting some of the Big Apple’s creepiest otaku denizens along the way.

She apparently lived in New York when she was aged 2-3:

She also paid a visit to an unidentified NY anime shop and supposedly let the lucky “Dave-san” cop a feel (a privilege it is hard to imagine her extending to any Japanese otaku), whilst meeting some of America’s finest cosplayers:

Most of 2ch seems to think this distinctly contrived looking encounter was a setup, a none too implausible conclusion given Japanese TV’s track record in this area.

She called in on her childhood nursery:

No Hirano appearance is complete without the obligatory slatternly utterance:

“I bought nothing but lots of T-backs”

“But I thought they’d never use that bit!”
