Aya Hirano x Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekido

Voice actress Aya Hirano in a promotion video for Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekido, a Japanese video game for the Nintendo Wii consoles.

Released by Kadokawa in January 2009, the exercise and music game features the characters from the Haruhi Suzumiya anime and manga series.

Meanwhile, Aya Hirano is the voice actress for the titular role in the anime series. She becomes very popular after the TV show, and seems like she works in this game too. And she’s cute isn’t it?

Not sure if the game is playable outside of Japan though. They may limit this to specific region because of distribution rights.

Update: Looks like it can’t be played outside of Japan (without mods) indeed. You really have to be in Japan to experience the whole anime culture.

BTW, speaking of Kadokawa, it’s not primarily a game maker. Its main business is magazines and manga, they are the publisher of Haruhi manga series. Their famous magazines include Shonen Ace and also Newtype etc.
