Anime News Network Reporting that Everybody is HanaKana


Over the last 24 hours, Anime News Network staff have identified nearly every figure in anime news as voice actress Hanazawa Kana. The Internet’s Most Trusted Anime News Site has reported that the 25-year-old voice actress is promoting Hawaiian tourism and Chinese car insurance, is announcing the dub cast of Attack on Titan, and single-handedly leads Japan’s anime Blu-ray sales over the last month.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the latest entry in the long-running Metal Gear Solid video game franchise, is set to release in the U.S. on March 18. In anticipation of the release, Kana Hanazawa the mastermind behind the series, sat down for an interview with, a major Japanese game website,” another article reads.

Commentators have come to the news site’s defense, stating that Hanazawa Kana is the only relevant voice actress and that the editors “probably don’t actually know anyone else.”

As of press time, Anime News Network has issued a correction. Hanazawa Kana’s name is now boldface and appears in all upper-case letters.
