My Pure·First Impression – TOxxxIC PV Preview

I’ve been longing for something new music-wise from Hirano Aya (Aya-chan) since the release of her album FRAGMENTS last year and I’m getting my wish next week with the release of her newest single TOxxxIC. And now the preview PV for TOxxxIC has been uploaded on Universal Music Japan’s YouTube channel.

I honestly can’t be unbiased about Hirano Aya, so it should come as no surprise that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything about the PV for TOxxxIC that I’ve seen so far. The song itself has a nice flow to it, without ever feeling too chaotic or fast-paced. Definitely a song I could be repeat for awhile without getting sick of it too quickly. As for the PV, I love the costume and while I’ll always love Aya-chan best with black hair, Aya-chan’s light colored hair meshes well with the shadowy dark and blue background. And I’m thrilled that this TOxxxIC PV gets to show off Aya-chan dancing.

Oh, and did I mention how stunningly beautiful and sexy Aya-chan looks in the PV? Because yeah… she totally does.

And it’s probably just me, but I got Itano Tomomi (Tomochin) Dear J vibes with the costumes and the background dancers, which is certainly fine for me.

This is Aya-chan’s 1st single since 2010’s Hysteric Barbie and personally I’m liking the direction Aya-chan’s music career seems to be going. I really hoping this single does well. Hirano Aya’s newest single TOxxxIC releases on February 20th.

My Pure·Heavy Rotation – Hirano Aya’s Stargaze Love

My favorite seiyuu has been and still is Hirano Aya (Aya-chan). I have loved her since I started watching anime and started getting interested into seiyuu. She’s been through her trials and tribulations, but I’ve never wavered in my support as a fan of hers. So I’m really happy that her music career is getting a reboot, with the May 23rd release of her album FRAGMENTS. I bought it myself and my favorite song on the album so far is titled Stargaze Love. I’ve been playing the song quite a lot lately and to see her perform the song live had me nostalgic through all the good times of Hirano Aya’s career so far. Love the song.

So yeah, so glad that Aya-chan’s back.

My Pure·Happiness – Aya-chan Appears on Rolling Stone Cover in Japan

Not much to say here. Hirano Aya (Aya-chan) appeared on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine in Japan. On the cover, it says “Hirano Aya REBORN”. After all the rumors and controversies Aya-chan has been linked to recently, I’m really hoping we will see the rise (again) of Aya-chan going forward. It looks as though Aya-chan has been cast in more anime series and I’m happy that Aya-chan will have more of a presence in 2012. I’ve missed her.
