The Epic Rickroll of Aya Hirano




From her latest blog post:





Ahh~ now I’m back after such a rush.
Japan’s definitely the best.
Leaving on the night of the 28th and returned on the morning of the 31st.
It was so tiring. (;^_^A
I still don’t know how the shots are going to turn out.
Definitely, meeting the people of Malaysia, I feel there were some weird ones.
Anyways, good job! Myself….
(the rest is something unrelated)

So yeah, yesterday’s Satelite Tracking of Aya Hirano turned out to be pretty fruitless because she wasn’t in the country anymore. That was some fucking epic rickroll there, Aaya-chan. (☞゚∀゚)☞

Anyways Aaya-chan, thanks for giving me one of the most memorable New Year’s I’ve ever had in years with all the shitstorm and epic discussions of your sudden trip to Malaysia. Hope you’ve enjoyed the country!

Happy New Year 2009 to all my readers!

    Oh man, rickrolled indeed… By the time the ‘operation’ was starting, Aya was already back in Japan. =(

    Probly one of the few times she might ever come to Malaysia, it would be nice to see her in real person, Aya being the seiyu that Aya fans have come to love. I just got to know one thing… were you able to meet her in person? Coz.. that would real cool!

    2008 seems to be an uneventful year for aya.

    You people need to work on your understanding of what a rickroll is.

    But honestly, I would have joined the stalking as well if I were in KL.
    On my own, of course xD
    And I just want to see her in person..

    lol at the ‘weird ones’ xD

    The moment we knew this, she’s already on the back to Japan.

    Well, looking forward to her next and hopefully, official appearance in this part of the region.

    […] year. ^_^ Probably the only disappointing news that I learned from Kurogane was that Aya Hirano has already left the country…sigh, and I had even printed an interview request letter for her. Oh well, I guess there […]

    As I read the news that she’s already back in Japan whilst those who were contemplating stuff, I’m already laughing from the awesome tragedic comedy of seeing the whole “plan” crumbled to powder as her return date to her country conveniently had everyone rickroll’d…

    And I still can’t stop laughing. Hard.

    she actually arrived in malaysia 28th night, and returned on 31st morning
    the ‘weird ones’, definitely a mistranslation
    多分マレーシアの不思議な街並みと合った、ちょっと変わったものになると思います。 means
    “maybe the shots will be different, due to malaysia’s wonderful streets”

    Oh, I think you got some of the lines translated wrongly, but meh, who cares; as long as we know that Aya had gone back on the day we started the discussion.

    Happy New Year

    any to all those who participated the search: otsu :)
