I haven’t posted anything not related to Arisa on here and I promise I love the other girls too but I just? Have an urge to gush about why she’s my absolute fav?
I understand why she grates on some people and that’s totally cool, I wouldn’t be offended at all if you said outright that you hated her with a passion. But! I love her. I have since pretty much the first moment she showed up in the game.
Yes she’s a tsun, yes I wish the writers would tone down that aspect of her personality a little so we’re not reminded of it constantly, but she’s more than just a trope. She has the emotional range of a tsun but also enough depth so that she’s not just always vacillating between her tiny angry bean self and her fluffy caramel-filled eclair self. I love that she’s a brutal realist and the logical thinker in any situation, not because she’s a smartass but because she worries about everything and that’s how she processes and works through her misgivings.
I have A Thing for characters who seem like cynical sarcastic jerks but are actually super nice (which I realise sounds kinda like a description of a tsun but y’know, beyond the stereotype of getting pissy and blushing). Arisa may snap at Kasumi a lot but when Kasumi breaks her guitar Arisa just immediately goes with her to get it repaired because she doesn’t wanna see her cry and her actions are so much more reliable than her words.
When she screws up at PoPiPa’s audition (even though they all kinda do) she’s the one who breaks down because she feels responsible and Arisa please don't, my HEART
That exasperated but fond little smile she has in the game sometimes? There’s just this loneliness about it combined with the way her voice softens and idk she seems like the sort of person who would resign themselves to doing things alone and that also hurts my heart.
I really relate to her need to put up a sweet polite front when she’s with people she doesn’t know well. It’s uncomfortable as heck seeing her act like that but it’s so obvious that she can’t keep it up for long and it tires her out and I feel her pain acutely, since I’m also a jaded pessimist who tries so so hard to smile and look approachable before giving up bc it doesn’t come naturally to me sob
Her voice is adorable and Su-Suki Nanka Janai cracks me up because everything about it captures her quick-fire thought processes and dorkiness so perfectly
So um. Thanks for bearing with me I love my child <333
So by chance, Ran and Yukina's dads meet. They talk and stuff, and probably become friends or something.
During that time, Lisa and Moca happen to be in the area and hear the conversation between the dads. They hatch up a masterplan to use the dad's friendship as a way to get their band's vocalists to get along for once.
I...honestly would kind of like it if Ako and Tomoe were not blood related.
I don't mean making them not siblings. But show that you can be siblings without sharing parents. Make half/step/adopted siblings valid.
My own brother is a half brother, if you want to be technically correct. But he is 100% my brother, and my dad's child. We love him to bits and I wish there was more of this dynamic in series (the only ones I ever see are "I fell in love with my sibling but it's OK because we're not actually related!" :/)
Yes, Kanon is my best harohapi girl but hagu needs love don’t you think?
To be totally honest, I used to hate Hagumi because I hated Genki girls with short hair, but after reading thru her event stories and her profile she’s just an adorable orange bean?! She supports Kokoro in all of her crazy ideas while dealing with her obnoxious parents at home (refer to initial Hagumi ep1)
As someone who shares her birthday and horoscope with her, I realized I can relate with her in many ways I never knew before.
So I just want to say: I’m sorry Hagumi for hating you at first. I promise to treat you better.
