fam has there ever been a musician/band whose music u genuinely disliked at first, but through repeated exposure, u got brainwashed into being hella down w/ their stuff
that was literally me and pastel*palettes lmao. theyre all close favorites behind afterglow as characters, but real talk... my ears got dislocated from trying to escape when i heard shuwarin dreaming the first few times. but now it’s lowkey a banger. u know what isnt a lowkey banger tho? fuwa fuwa time, which is a highkey banger. that song has like the coldest ending in the entire game and the clapping at the start gets me instantly hyped
then they got the yura yura ring dong, this extra intense idol electronic ballad w/ chisato and her ol thug head singing. and can we talk about wonderland girl, that song is secretly my jam when no ones around. sobakasu is just oozing w/ swag meanwhile lol
idk what it is with this group. the pastels’ music is hella lit and cute at the same time. their style is so confident + well put-together & eventually they just won me over. i wont lie, every time a pastel song or cover gets added lately, i get super excited to hear it
So I've noticed myself choosing A-glow songs more frequently than usual. Originally, I used to think A-glow was mediocre and was my least favorite band. But then I remember when I first heard True Color, I immediately fell in love. The passion in Ayane Sakura's (Ran-Chan's) voice when she sung gave me chills, and even more so when I read up on the songs lyrics. The meaning of it resonated with me, and I felt emotionally connected through those wonderful lyrics.
Suddenly, a band I didn't think much of has my kudos. From this experience, I realized something. All in all, every band is beautiful in their own way-- PoPiPa and their ability to go from light-hearted to deep or inspirational, HHW and their pure love and joy for the world, PasuPare and their pure innocence and light,
Roselia's tales of facing hardship with strength, and A-glow's determination and strength. Every band deserves immense amounts of appreciation for who they are, rather then hate.Sorry if this was kind of random, I tend to start rambling my thoughts... But for those of you who have actually read this, thanks.
Me: next event will be the chapter 2 band story of harohapi or aglow
Bandori: next event isn't band chapter 2
(seriously though, I feel like the time waiting between popipa, roselia and pasupare wasn't this big, give me the Angst of harohapi and aglow too ;; (and their animated pvs too, pls, I need animated Kaoru and Moca in my life))
