Do people still hate her for no discernible reason, or did they forget about that yet?

I've never hated Aya Hirano. I love her as Lucy on Fairy Tail. You go, girl!

People hate her for having a sex life.

People hate her for having a sex life.
EDIT: People hate her for having a sex life and being an attention hog about it.

I only hate her for the attention hog part. Her sex life only rates a rolling of the eyes Rolling Eyes

Odd that Aki Toyosaki didn't face anywhere near the level of backlash that Hirano did. Perhaps it's in the way that Hirano reacted to the situation compared with Toyosaki?

I just don't get the sex thing. I get that otaku are stereotypically lonely virgins who begrudge other people having something they don't, and I get that people might frown on her supposed promiscuity. I wouldn't know about the attention whore thing because I don't follow those kinds of gossip sites, but I'm sure it's a fair point. What I don't get is how any of this almost destroyed her career. She's a great-looking girl with a great voice. She can shag whoever she wants as long as she keeps voicing Haruhi Suzumiya so perfectly. People's work life and personal life shouldn't be taken as one, unless they're found to be rapists or murderers or suchlike, in which case I can't support them in any way. But banging a few guys? Good on the guys, I say.

It's not that they're envious, it's that they're obsessed with "purity"(which is what makes it so damn creepy).

The thing is with Hirano is that she milks the attention she gets from it. She doesn't try to downplay her sex life to the creepy, purity-obsessed otaku, and instead milks the image and mock controversy surrounding her. By doing this, small things like releasing some stupid phone app or getting a bit-part role becomes big news, when there are several other V.A.s out there toiling away harder than she could even conceive and seeing no surge in popularity for it.

Here's a question: How many of you knocking on Aya also read articles about her on Sankaku Complex?
