The origin story of Pastel Palettes was by far the most interesting origin story to me. These five girls, all from different backgrounds and fields of entertainment (in Hina's case she was scouted simply because she was a genius), meeting each other for the first time and being grouped together to form an idol band. The encounter many struggles along their way (failed lip synced performance, Chisato distancing herself from the group), but they all remain strong and power through to deliver a successful, real debut performance.
There are many aspects that I like in this origin story, some of which include:
Maya's Involvement --> Starting off as just a fill-in until the staff found a drummer for the band, Maya wasn't supposed to be a member of Pastel Palettes (she didn't even see herself as one). However, the other girls grew to like her, and were quick to jump on board when Chisato asked Maya to join the band. I honestly love how open and accepting the other girls are of Maya, and it really shows the beginning of their strong relationship.
Chisato's Development --> At the beginning of this story, I didn't really like Chisato. I just thought she was a rude, standoffish girl who only cared about her career. Her attitude towards Aya also rubbed me the wrong way. However, as she witnesses Aya hand out flyers in the rain, she starts to understand Aya's views and finally starts to involve herself more with the band. The development may be small, but I really like how Chisato acted in the second half of the story, and as a result I started to like her as a character. My favourite moment from this story is actually when she defends the other girls when the staff disregard their hard work; it's actions like that that make me see Chisato as a true member of Pastel Palettes.
Aya --> Aya was actually my favourite member of Pastel Palettes for the longest time before Maya stole my heart, and the origin story is to thank. I loved Aya in this story. After the disaster of the first debut, she poured all of her effort into every minute of her training to help Pastel Palettes take off. Even when Chisato told her that her belief that hard work can achieve anything is futile, she continued to hold onto her belief and push herself to keep going. Her determination to help Pastel Palettes is really admirable to me, especially since she only just met her band members and had a strained relationship with one of them. I also liked the game's portrayal of her stage fright, and I found myself rooting for her and Pastel Palettes to overcome their struggles as a result.
Overall, Pastel Palettes origin story is amazing and is my favourite origin story of them all.
(This one felt a bit clunky, sorry about that ^^;)

I found an Aya at my local con. My heart has been so full this weekend meeting bandori fans in person and just fawning over our best girls. If this Aya is a member on here I would like to say you did a wonderful job and I hope you win the contest. In the name of bushido I believe you got it.
