Sankaku Complex (okay, c'mon, Artefact, I love you...but the bikini incident and Aya's alleged corpulence are getting a little old!) reports that kickboxer Yuichiro Nagashima, whose claim to fame is cosplaying cute female anime characters, desperately wants to meet The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya seiyuu Aya Hirano. He hopes she'll attend one of his matches in the near future and promises to be 1.5 times as strong as usual if she does.
Aya generally seems to want to separate herself as much as possible from the otaku crowd in favor of trying to go mainstream, but seriously, how can anyone resist the siren call of a crossplaying kickboxing champion who wants to become a seiyuu? I want to go see him fight...especially since his next cosplay is a “military secret.”
I want to see him as Yoko-kun. I'm kind of a glutton for punishment that way.
