Hirano “Ruins” Haruhi: “We Can’t Stand To Watch Her!”

ganguro-haruhi

Haruhi fans are angrily complaining that they can no longer imagine the eponymous egomaniac as being a virginal maiden with the knowledge of scandal seiyuu Aya Hirano’s slatternly antics.

They explain their objections to a “carnivorous” seiyuu with a relaxed attitude to hiding this fact from fans:

“Well, if Kadokawa do a third season of Haruhi I hope they announce a new Haruhi or this seiyuu scandal will ruin it.

Honestly, I really did like Aya Hirano, but now I can’t watch Haruhi any more with her image being what it is…”

“Then don’t watch it.”

“Even if you hate the seiyuu, there’s no need to hate the work or the character.”

“This will definitely affect Haruhi. We may not see any more movies or a new series thanks to it.”

“It won’t affect it. KyoAni have their hands full for some time with Nichijou and K-ON! When they get to Haruhi everyone will have forgotten this stuff.”

“The idiots saying there will be no effect – just look at all the announcers sacked for far more trivial reasons. I hope they change Haruhi’s seiyuu soon. The effect on her image is terrible. I can’t stand watching her whilst recalling that face.”

“With this incident, there is no more Aya Hirano. Her effect on the image of anime she appears in will be too bad.”

“You can’t deny she has ruined Haruhi’s image. She’s ruined the whole anime!”

“It’s time to change the seiyuu. Even if there is a third season, nobody will be able to enjoy it listening to her voice.”

“Haruhi is not Aya Hirano. Who cares if she voices her. Stop making a fuss about it.”

“If they change Haruhi they had better change the whole cast.”

“Aya Hirano is finished, it’s impossible. This has wrecked the image of all her anime roles.”

“If they dump her, the ones who can’t stand her and left will come back, and the new seiyuu will bring her own fans – wonderful.”

“They can’t change the seiyuu now! What the hell do you retarded seiyuu fans expect from a seiyuu anyway…”

“I like Haruhi and her voice. Who cares who plays her. I don’t know anything about any Aya Hirano.”

“Who cares about this scandal anyway.”

“I’d rather they find a new producer…”

“It’s not like she committed a crime. If they change her, it’d be like negating all her characters – I wouldn’t wish to see that.”

This is of course not the first time fans have sought to have her removed, although it does rather seem she has now crossed every line of seiyuu image management.

For those wondering about the Hirano response to all this, there has been nothing but deafening silence – since the 27th her Twitter has lain silent, and though she made no less than 7 blog updates on the 31st, as usual they only detailed the particulars of her diet and fashion choices.

    Better check the sex lives of the animators while we're at it. Can't have anyone impure involved in creating Haruhi's character, it'll ruin it!

    They idolized the seiyuu. Seiyuu in the past had healthy sex lives and fans went on with them.
    Aya Hirano's acts in comparison are mood killers to these guys.

    Well I don't understand the 'virginal' aspect. Haruhi even has lines in the first episode that says 'she's a girl and has needs' in relation to having had boyfriends, which insinuate she's had sex and/or made out before, even if she treated it almost like an obligation to her loins. As far as I was concerned, it made her character that much better to have those subtle lines to let you recognize that SHE recognizes sexuality.

    I don't mind Hirano going about a "healthy" sex life. But lets be honest here, the more we find out, the more she looks like a bit of a slut (and imo sluts don't have "healthy" sex lives, they have "excessive" sex lives).

    No, we don't have any evidence of her being a slut. There was a picture of her with ONE guy, and only hearsay that she slept with the entire band. Everything else is shit people are making up. The fact that that one picture even resulted in people calling her a slut is pretty sad.

    Animators are poor, they can't afford sex or marriage in Japan. So no worries there, unless people want to look into the non-white gaijins who do in-between work.

    I COMPLETELY FUCKING AGREE! What the hell is the problem of japanese people who and us? We're just like FUCK IT, she tapped some dude in her band, HELL are most popular idol can lipsync and fall off stage and STILL be HELLA popular afterwards. She can't have some privacy and fuck a dude without completely ruining her career, and the japanese people are completely being ELITIST PRICKS ABOUT IT!

    Maybe that is the reason why the Japanese despise foreigners so much. They don't want the cultural decay that has afflicted Western society for the past fifty years, and although their methods are hamfisted it seems to be the only way to maintain a decent culture.

    This is why Japan is getting hit by so many censorship laws. They see sex as being dirty and disgusting, something worth ruining someone's career over even if it was consensual sex.

    If someone's career will be ruined of something like this then I don't blame the country for having millions of censorship laws.

    No wonder Ishihara is still in office. The Otaku secretly agree with some of his backwards logic.

    I know the reaction is rather exaggerated, but i won't deny that at some level i understand them. i had nothing against Aya, but all this scandals she create in order to maintain herself on the spotlight have made me despise her. i am not sure if i would care or not hearing her voice, but i do know i can no longer stand her face.

    Please remind me how having a sex life automatically ruins your political career in so many countries. Even unmarried politicians are not supposed to f*ck, sext or flirt like normal humans.

    I'd say that's way more stupid than these Japanese otaku do.

    Politicians decide the goings-on of cities/countries/etc. Voice actors entertain the public with their voices, without even being seen in the entertainment they are part of. I wouldn't compare the two in this context. Although from my point of view, they can do whatever the hell they want with their own lives, so long as they don't mess with mine.

    Though the last line was completely biased, who in the fuck are YOU, someone posting on a site such as Sankaku Complex, to judge Japanese people on such views?

    Not even going to take half of the posts here serious. SanCommers seem to have an extremely different view on sex than the majority of folk.

    How does someone saying that someone has the right as a human being to make judgements on their own equate to an argument that they should be able to murder and rape? What fucking lines are there that you read between that imply that? I really REALLY want to know. Please tell me what kind of fucking backwards reverse bullshit logic you used to infer/imply that. I would REALLY like to understand your thought process in case I come across somebody else who's batshit fucking insane in the future, on the off chance it's in real life and it will help me.

    "It's his right as a Human Being to be able to judge whatever the hell he/she wants. You can't stop them from doing it, and you sure as hell, aren't in any position to tell him to not be able to judge either."

    That argument justifies him being able to murder and rape your family, simply because he's a "Human Being."

    I'm saying he has no right to pass his judgement on such an issue because it'll be completely fueled by bias and extreme misconception (and guess what? it was!).

    "yet so long as people think differently, shit like this will happen."
    He wasn't stating an opinion...?

    These posts make me like Aya Hirano more. Then again I seem to naturally be attracted to drama laden women. Still, I'd rather her be the way she is than another soft-spoken ultra-conservative seiyuu afraid to turn the wrong direction or threaten the wrath of their 'fans'. Then again I don't like Haruhi.

    The worst part is, every one of these moron's would "defile" a virginal Aya Hirano if given the chance. They're all a bunch of hippocrites, have probably never had sex so they don't realize its a normal thing that people tend to enjoy.

    Another thing I wonder, is this just because its Aya Hirano? I'm sure there are TONS of other Idol Seiyuu who have sex, I don't see them complaining about that.

    And no doubt they eagerly devour Haruhi raep doujin where their goddess services numerous anonymous cocks attached to generic faceless bodies.

    New theory: It's okay for pure/virginal characters to have sexual associations, as long as it's with somebody who can act as a "blank slate" audience surrogate. But involve the character or the VA with a named character or known RL person, then they're tainted.

    RANT TIME (and since some 2ch'ers also read Sankaku, I feel like I should do this; this rant is for you).

    To all you seiyuu-stalking idiots who claim that Haruhi is ruined over this "scandal", because you believe that all seiyuu should be virginal maidens or they're no good at all, are you possibly forgetting that seiyuu are human beings too? You people want to have girlfriends, have sex, and maybe get married one day too. Why should seiyuu sacrifice their own lives just because of their voice? Your voice or personality don't change when you have sex, do they?

    Besides, you're the same guys who constantly harassed her over Twitter and complained about everything about her that made news, even if it was just her trying new things, doing live TV, or even talking about her personal life (especially this last one, because no one forced you to read her Twitter). So if you complained so much already, why is THIS the one thing that "ruined her" for you? I mean, fuck, everyone knew she had boyfriends and wasn't a virgin anymore. Not to mention that, like someone else here already mentioned, you guys already fap to Haruhi doujinshi anyway. You can't have an anime character with a "clean" image when the internet and Rule 34 exist. Deal with it.

    Hirano Aya is still Hirano Aya. Who the fuck cares if she has a sex life, or who she has sex with? She's not YOUR freaking spouse. Don't go saying that she should be sacked because she's a human being and has a life. If that bothers you so much, stick to Vocaloids. As for me, I'd rather have Hirano Aya still do Haruhi's voice, because no two seiyuu are alike, and the show would only suffer from the change.

    but then again if i look really hard its those stalkers' fault for making small stuff "news" just because they havent experienced it or since they think they own everything and everyone in their little 2d world. oh wait, aya hirano is 3d so why do you guys even care?

    I completely agree. It's disgusting that they actually think that anyone who's got an actual job, is at least slightly attractive and has their own personality is going to sit around quietly at home, reading books and thinking "oh no! I can't do anything perverted, or people will hate me!"
    All the while, they go off and jerk to whatever hentai doujin they can find of the characters that person voices, being violated and taken advantage of, no doubt imagining the voices the entire time.

    I say good for Aya Hirano. She got laid, she probably enjoyed it, and she's probably still going to have a long career, because in the end any publicity is good publicity.

    Oh boy.

    Hirano is certainly not the cause for Haruhi's demise. (Restructured) KyoAni and Kadokawa caused most of the harm because of their stupid, bullheaded attempt at being "artsy" with Endless Eight and a sub-optimal interpretation of the other 5 episodes for season 2.

    Disappearance was quite remarkable and worthy of a reconciliation. If they ever produce a third season, i'd advice them to to NOT go the "artsy" route of season three and stick close to the source.
