She has three little (unrelated) sisters, two of them in which loved to cuddle with me. They watched me play BanG Dream! and asked me to let them look at all the costumes I had for them. I asked them who their favorite character was without telling them mine and they both chose Moca! I was really happy ;3; they both loved all of the outfits, especially the Butterfly outfit from Maya's event card from the Blooming Flowers event! They also played and listened to the music as well, although they weren't good at it on easy. Also one of them used 50 of my stars because they didn't know what to press upon running out of energy, but I can't get mad at them for it, of course. They also really liked Rimi's Christmas outfit uwu
Getting over to her house was difficult. I was over at my boyfriend's house and his mom vowed to take us, and we were supposed to go at 6 pm so he could hang out with her as well, but his little brothers kept us behind and other complications occurred so we ended up leaving at 7:30 x.x he didn't get to hang out with us but I got to spend the night with her. We watched a cute lil' movie until I got a headache and had to go rest.
So yeah, that's why I've been inactive for the past day, thank you to whoever wants to know about my life as much as to read that insanely long and mistake-filled paragraph!
EDIT: Actually since going over there, I oddly feel better at handling kids, yet so inexperienced. The younger ones got into a fight and I talked it through with them and stuff and it turned out okay! It made me really happy too~
I’ve been thinking about this for a while and the last EN event was a good chance to talk about it but I was too lazy to type it out so have this now
I’ve always appreciated Bandori’s writing. But not only in stories. I love how the song lyrics of each band are tailored to their respective outlooks and methods of writing like the event showed us. We can see it in the actual lyrics themselves and it’s not just a throwaway detail never to be mentioned again. Honestly thinking about that made me appreciate the lyricists more, especially Kasumi.
Kasumi tells Lisa that she looks for the kira kira doki doki in everyday things which is true, but that’s just her Kasurific way of expressing something that isn’t quite as simple as she says it is. I think that description can be applied to her lyrics too. Kasumi isn’t shallow or emotionally immature. In fact she feels really strongly and is in tune with those feelings—she’s just more about living in the moment and experiencing rather than reflecting on or analysing her emotions. So you get stuff like sensory descriptions of the festival in Natsunodon! which seem like fun and games until you look at the gut punch that is Light Delight, a raw unfiltered barrage of ouch and anything but superficial.
Ran is kinda similar but is naturally a more introspective person, so even when she experiments and writes down whatever comes into her head without ‘dressing up the words,’ her lyrics come across as a little more cerebral, while still being driven by emotion. Rebellious Ran is so good in That is How I Roll please appreciate her
Now let’s talk about the girl who does dress up her words. Heckin Yukina. Ran was lowkey roasting her when she was explaining her own methods to Lisa and I can't resist either because it's kinda funny to me (I promise I love her). Yukina was acting all smug in her card story, saying Lisa’s lyrics didn’t meet Roselia’s standards, but what are those standards exactly? Yukina may be a great singer but she is a drama queen and any song that doesn’t wax poetic every second line is not befitting of Roselia in her eyes. This is the girl who writes things like ‘In the depths of this dried up sea is a slumbering voice/Beneath your eyes, it resonates with your consciousness.’ Yukina I love you but you gotta calm down sometimes lmao.
Jokes aside though, it makes sense. Roselia is the band with the greatest desire to make it big. Yukina’s writing her lyrics with the intention of captivating a large audience rather than putting her spontaneous feelings into words. It makes sense that they’re showy. If she overshoots the mark sometimes (which I guess is debatable depending on what people are after), that’s cool because she’s still learning.
I don’t really have anything to say about PasuPare and HaroHapi, except that reading HaroHapi’s fluffy pure lyrics and remembering Misaki wrote them is super cute considering how much of a pessimist she is. PasuPare may not write their lyrics but I do like that they have songs focusing on specific girls.
In short, I appreciate Bandori’s lyrics and I stress that Kasumi Toyama is a good kid who needs more love bye
