This started as a reply to this post, but I started putting so may things, that I figured I should just make it into a post, so here you have it:
There's lots of things I love about Poppin Party. For example, I love how they are just a bunch of normal high school girls who became friends and formed a band. They are just normal people, and they could be anyone. They could even be someone like you or like me or any kind of person.
When comparing their stories with the other bands's stories, they don't really have that much depth, But that is what I find so endearing about them. Their simplicity feels really great and it shows that you don't need depth to be good.
They are the main band, and that is something you can instantlly tell , but it doesn't feel too overwhelming or annoying, which is not something that can be said for every series.
Their songs are very good. They're my favourites, and becausw they are the main band, that means we get lots of songs from them, so that means more good music. Some of my favourites have to be:
Teardrops, which despite having a long beatmap and those infamous death sliders, it still isn't enough to not let me love that song, because it is filled with so much power, and the song absolutely rocks.
Time Lapse is also an example of a beatmap with infamous sliders, but not as much as Teardrops, and the song is an absolute BOP and it's really great. Tae really slays that guitar in this song too.
B.O.F is also extremely good, and we get to hear Tae singing with Kasumi and it's just SO GOOD.
And last, but certainly not least, we have Light Delight, which is my faveourite bandori song ever. The song is so calming and yet it's also so powerful, and the lyrics are amazing, you should read them. And I epecially love that part near the end of the full version where everyone has a solo line.
The characters have to be one of my favourite aspects of this band. They all seem very generic at first, but they always deliver a little something that makes them feel especial and unique.:
Kasumi is a very energetic girl and her happiness is really contagious, but we see that she struggles sometimes and despite always being so determiend to reach her goals, we can see her wanting to give up. But, of course, her bandmates are always there to support her, and she becomes an unsoppable force when she's with everyone.
Tae looks like your typical cool and strict girl, but she's actually a big dork and an even bigger airhead. She also love rabbits so much, but also loves her bandmates a lot too. She used to be alone, but after meeting Kasumi, and later Arisa and Rimi, she started to make friends, and she instantly felt comfortable arround all of them,and honestly, that part of the anime is so cute and heartwarming. I also see myself a lot in her and that just makes me love her even more.
Rimi is a very cute, pure and shy girl, with a very big love for chocolate, who is very underrated by the community. She's got so much more than that. She's, surprisingly, the horror genere fan, which is something very overlooked by people, and she also has problems with her self esteem. She always thinks her bass playing is bad, which is why she is such a hard worker, because she doesnt want to be a burden to everyone else. But she is actually the second most experienced member of Poppin Party, after Tae who played since she was little, and she also writes the amizing songs that this band has. All of her bandmates always make sure to tell her that she isn't bad despite what she thinks and I love seeing this wholesome content. Besides, her interactions with her bandmates are really pure. She's so patient with Kasumi and Tae, she's very sweet to Arisa, and Arisacan't really get angry at Rimi, and she's so comfortable arround Saaya, since she has that mom aura. All of these interactions are my favourites. They are just so heartwarming, and I know I might be overusing this word, but it's just how it is.
Saaya is the mom friend of the band, and a very kindhearted girl, who is also too selfless. She stopped playing with her previous band because she didn't want her mom to overwork herself, but ended up deniying herself from her social life, and it wasn't until she met Kasumi that she could push herself to have time for herself too.
Arisa is your typical tsundere, who always dennies her true feelings, and can say some harsh things, but she really loves her bandmates a lot and really cherishes them, and she would do anything for her band, even if she dennies dong it. She used to be a shut in without friends, and she always skipped school, but she slowly started to scialize step by step, and now she's got 4 wonderful friends, who she would do anything for.
Their dynamic between all of them is the most pure and wholesome of all the bands, and everyone can rely on their bandmates to be there for them when they have problems.
They are just such a good band, they deserve so much more than what they get,and it makes me so sad to see how underapreiated it is. It is alwyas beeing overlooked as your typical and generic main band, and I really wish people could look at what they do and stop sleeping on them.
i've seen a lot of posts around (on twitter too) about how michelle's trained cards would be "better" if they were just misaki and i... disagree. for a few reasons
you know, you're right, craft egg could've gone the easy route, and made misaki be the pretty one in costumes every time she had a card, but they didn't. not even in the 2-stars. they're always michelle. and i think that not only shows they're not backing down with the amount of skill it takes to draw an entire outfit over a fursuit, but that michelle is a really important part of misaki's personality, you know? completely separate from the jokes, misaki acknowledges that being michelle is just part of who she is.
it's not that misaki /deserves/ a trained card, it's more like she doesn't /need/ one.
I ran into someone during Multi-Live with the name "re:birth pls need fc," but sadly it wasn't picked.
However, I sent them a friend request and quickly made a private room for them and soon it filled up with many friends and, yes, the friend who needed Re:Birth.
Re:Birth Friend was always really close to full comboing each time - really high combo chain, and only a few misses. We played for a good 5 or 6 matches before that friend finally managed to get the full combo and I'm so proud of them! That friend finally full combo'd all the hard songs!
If you're seeing this re:birth friend, I love you and I'm very proud of you for getting all those full combos. (ps congrats on that wedding tomoe) <3
Okay so irrelevant life hours!
okay so I started new classes like, a week ago? And they've already kept me super busy fueeee.... so for first period I have Career Management, which is across the street because the computer classes are located in the Business and technology building, which is across the street and they have us ride the buses across the... one street... and it's been freezing lately so I'm like bbrrRrrrRrRR... but Career management doesn't have that much of a workload, ya just have to take everything seriously in that class, which most people don't, sadly. But, I do, and it kind of shows in a way or so the teacher has told me? That was nice. Second period, across the street, into another building, walking, walking, and it's my AP Government class, which is honestly kind of fun because all of the debates that happen in there are super interesting, and honestly get me thinking. The teacher manages to remain so unbiased on subjects and I admire him for that as well, but it is an AP class so the work will, sadly, be more difficult especially for my one brain cell left. My on brain cell gets nutrition by lunch and dies within 3 minutes of 3rd period, which is Math. (Fun.) My last period class is (Honors) Biology with one of my favorite teachers! She's super cool and has a smol turtle. Speaking of 4th period we had a test today with 40 multiple choice and 2 essays and I got 38/40 right and I feel super confident about the two essays I wrote! I also drew a cute lil drawing to show how enzymes act on substrates and break them apart, with some lil :3 faces.
But yeah, other than that, the neko is good. On another bad note I have not watched anime in over a week and am about to get my replenishment after I get done typing this! Another addition is that I messaged the guy I like! I only asked him about a class he was taking, which is AP Psychology, which is a class I'm genuinely interested in, and he was so nice and didn't mind describing his opinion on the class to me at all? like... he's so sweet? How in tarnation can a male homosapien that attends high school be so sincere? marry me pls even though I don't know your favorite color
But yeah, that's the basis, I hope everyone's lives have been going well, and I want to create a random survey rn for some reason, so off I go!
