Malaysian otakus had made an epic hunt on New Year Eve for Japanese star Aya Hirano when it was discovered that the popular seiyu (voice actress) was in Kuala Lumpur for some filming and photo-shooting.
The news was broke loose by a blogger and passed on to various forums, including the popular LYN which prompted the hectic ‘hunt’ for her where-about via the photos she posted on her online diary.
While most of the forum comments were made for the lulz; some of the folks seemed to take the manhunt a bit too seriously… regardless, the search ended hours later when it was found out that Hirano was already back to Japan when the search party was started… lol, an epic fail which provides the final bit of 2008 entertainment for Malaysian netizens.
On side note, that’s a really cute picture of Aya Hirano in a traditional Malay costume. Forget about bikinis… do more traditional stuff instead :)
