Like many of us, seiyuu are also stuck in their homes, many of whom don’t have anything to do. Normally, they would be swamped with work, voicing characters and making appearances. But with the pandemic, they suddenly find themselves with a lot of time in their hands. Well, as it seems, it looks like a couple of them finally found something to do. They are Tomokazu Sugita and Aya Hirano, the duo who voiced the Haruhi Suzumiya series main characters, Kyon and Haruhi respectively. The two set up a camera and danced the anime’s iconic ED, Hare Hare Yukai!

The videos end by telling people to stay at home. They also sport the hashtag #お家で全力ハレ晴レユカイ (Dance “Hare Hare Yukai” With All Your Might at Home).
As expected, both videos became viral. Aya Hirano’s video now has over 100,000 retweets as of writing, while Tomokazu Sugita’s video now has over 300,000 likes. And by the looks of things, the two seiyuu have also started a brand new internet challenge…
