Ah, PasuPare. Such cute idols, dancing around with pretty smiles and sweet costumes, right? No, wait. there's much more.
PasuPare is really unique as a concept. They're idols, but they're also a band, and that's something I find awesome.
Many people have told me ''PasuPare is only your favourite band because Maya is in it!!'' and that... is kind of true, I won't lie. I did learn a lot about PasuPare thanks to Maya, so that's not completely wrong. However, they are just so... real. I think it's because Aya cries really easily, so the topic of sadness isn't something that is avoided. Even if it was, it would be a total fail, because that'd be kinda OOC for Mrs. Maruyama (whom I love, by the way!). Life isn't all pink and cute, and Pastel*Palettes, as surprising as it can be, does an amazing work showing that.
Another thing I love about Pastel*Palettes would be their signatures. To me, they have the most original ones!
Aya's signature is just... so sweet. It really screams ''Aya Maruyama wrote this!!'', and the detail of turning a character into your face is super cute.
Is that the Latin Alphabet I see?! Yep, Chisato really made her signature without Japanese characters. It reminds me of my own handwriting but more ''closed'' and smaller. The flower reminds me to one of my favourite event stories, ''When the Flowers Bloom'', and that's a plus.
They were right when they said Hina was a genius. The little sun drawing is probably there because the ''Hi'' in ''Hina'' means ''Sun'', and the bird detail is just so... cute.
