Daily ChioBu: Aya Hirano

At 20, Aya Hirano 平野綾 is probably every otaku’s favourite Seiyuu and J-pop singer. Her big break came in 2006 when she was cast as the voice of the title character in the immensely popular The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which bagged her a Best Newcomer award at the first Seiyū Awards. Her CD single Bōken Desho Desho? containing the opening song of the show also sold out in Japan on the first day of released. Her popularity was confirmed when she successfully released her first photo book “Stairway to 20”.

Aya Hirano has just released her second photo book “1/19 Bmp“. Her latest single “Love★Gun” (a typical Aya punk/rock number) was released recently while two other singles will be released before the end of the year.

Pictures of Aya Hirano, the anime that made her a household name among anime fans, and a live performance of the song God Knows after the break.
