But fairy Chisato and Dolly Candy Lisa are pretty great too! I got a bunch of new 3 stars I’ve been wanting as well, I’d say this scout went pretty fantastic! Tsugu may not have come home but she defiantly brought me a Merry Christmas this year!
this could have been done a week ago I was just too lazy to sub the video. I'm sorry--
but yeah here it be! I don't know what else to say about it! but it's funny that it fell together with the favourite song day of the 30 days challenge, which was complete coincidence. it's also Kirishima Ikuya's birthday in Japan, and he's got that whole mermaid theming going on alongside Hiyori, so I suppose it's fitting.
30 days challenge by okusawamiikun || DAY XV - FAVOURITE ORIGIN STORY
as someone who got into BanDori through the anime, it’d be a crime to mention any story other than PoPiPa’s.
seeing these five girls who didn’t know each other at all in the beginning come together and become a truly great group of friends ... struggling starting out but eventually finding what makes them good enough to play at SPACE like they aimed ... everyone’s backstories, but especially Saaya’s, god the Star Beat episode made me cry,,
if any of the origin stories should have gotten an anime, I’m glad it was this one. all the other ones are great too but PoPiPa’s reigns supreme imo, and I’m glad JP (and EN too probably) got it in story form so people who didn’t watch it can still experience it!
shoutout goes to PasuPare this time tho, I already said I love how it deals with the problems in their industry & their different backgrounds instead of just being the floofy idol dream!
there was a lot to pick from, but in the end, my favourite event is still this one!
I just love how the writers treat Rinko and her friends in it. Rinko in general has some of the best writing I’ve ever seen in a shy / socially anxious character like her, slowly taking steps forward at her own pace, and this event just emphasises how everyone supports her. my favourite scene has got to be the one where they’re picking out swimsuits and Ako is getting hyped up and kind of forcing Rinko into it (with no malice, of course) and Lisa notices that Rinko’s feeling uncomfortable and gently reminds Ako not to push her, which she immediately realises and apologises for, it’s such a wonderful moment.
I’m so proud of Rinko at all times ... and this is such a fun character combination too, with Himari and Aya in the mix. bless
shoutout to Hello, My Happy World for making me get emotional from its title alone. Misaki has come so far, too
