Aya Hirano Aya Hirano (平野 綾, Hirano Aya?), born October 8, 1987 in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, is a voice actor (seiyū) and singer who has had roles in several anime, visual novel series and TV commercials in Japan. Her popularity was confirmed at the first Seiyū Awards, where she won "Best Newcomer (female)", for her role as Haruhi Suzumiya; the same role also won her a nomination as "Best Main Character (female)". **credit goes to Wikipedia for the info on Aya** and special thanks to Datalanche for informing me about Aya-chan's music, etc. The scanned photo is of her brand new photobook, where i was able to find and buy at my local Kinokuniya bookstore. She is so talented and a cutie!
