Aya Hirano on HEY!HEY!HEY!


Watch this. No shit.

*Kurogane watches*

Aya Hirano: Dame desho, Hamada-san.

*Aya Hirano deals CRITICAL HIT on Kurogane*
*Kurogane suffers 100 Moé damage*

Yeah, it was that good. I was kinda suprised that her normal voice is so high-pitched and different from her seiyuu voice. Must be a way to maintain her anonymity, wouldn’t want her to get mobbed/worshipped by the Haruhi-ists if she strolls by Akihabara and spoke suddenly.

    She sounds like that in a LOT of the stuff I’ve heard her in, interview and otherwise… and she sounds WAY different. You wouldn’t expect her to be able to go from high-pitched to ‘all-woman’ voice so suddenly.. and the way one of the hosts reacted was priceless. :D Heck, when she said that… I think I felt a thrill from that voice myself.

    She can do cute -and- sultry. No wonder she’s developing a fan following – she’s quite versatile. Well, on top of being cute and having the ability to throw out a voice which seems quite at odds with her normal appearance (extremely genki). That clip from the live version of God Knows was also quite… interesting – I didn’t imagine her carrying off a short skirt, a fingerless glove, and an outfit like that.

    That stuff is just unreal. I could swear it was a voice over even though I know it’s not. ^^

    Oh, man, thanks for that. That was fabulous. She’s a smart cookie, isn’t she? And now I really want to see all of that live-action PV. I wonder what she sounds like when she’s with her friends. Do you think that’s different from her interview voice, too? I suspect the “normal” high female voice she uses in interviews is a bit of a performance, too. Started in entertainment at 9, and as a seiyuu at 14. I hope she has a natural self left.

    I too suffered moe damage when I heard her speak that sentence in a “mature womanly” voice. I will have to pop a few bottles of FFXI potions now to recover some HP.

    It sums up what she rather like, Nihon’s answer to Canada’s Avril Lavinge. Only rather than voice acting Over The Hedge, she did TMSH instead. Sure,her voice great for pop or light rock as the two other songs had prove, but don’t expect her to get out of the comfy spot of seiyuu-ing too far though. And yes, hare hare yukai is a cheer to listen to commute. Do prepare for weird looks as you do HHY moves in traffic though. eh..

    I really liked her songs. Specially the ” God Bless”, it’s the song from MANGA. I really loved it. I wish to see her face to face … man I can’t resist her song.
