Shimazaki Haruka who announced her dreams of being a seiyuu for Ghibli Studios during her graduation announcement has provoked criticisms from anime fans and antis.

This was due to her talking about not having the abilities to become an actress yet, then following it up with her dreams of being a seiyuu for Ghibli. This made it seem she could easily become a seiyuu even if acting doesn’t work out.

“Paruru please don’t become a seiyuu for Ghibli.”
“Is she dumb? Looking down on the seiyuus?”
“I liked her but i hope she didn’t speak of it so casually…this isn’t what anyone can do.”

On the 4th October, Shimazaki tweeted “I don’t remember talking about wanting to become a seiyuu. Also, it isn’t easy to become one if i say i will.”

She later deleted these tweets.

    She may just want to open a possibility about being a seiyuu, but I do agree it came off a little arrogant since we are talking about one of the most important animation studios in Japan and she doesn’t have enough experience to be one. There must be hundreds of professional seiyuu dreaming about working for Ghibli. But then again she said she didn’t talk about that so……

    ” Also, it isn’t easy to become one if i say i will.” I know one should be ambitious, but I think she needs a reality check. Since, she got in AKB things are being really smooth for her, but does not mean life is like that. She always seems like she is in a bubble and can say and do whatever she please, sometimes I found it a bit irritating

    I thought Ghibli studio wasn’t making new films since a while ?? In any case, looking forward her future projects.
