Event Song: Galactic! Mysterious Waltz | Galactic! 神秘的円舞 | Galactic! Shinpi-teki Enbu (original by Hello Happy World, featuring major Hina vocal parts)
Challenge Songs: Galactic! Mysterious Waltz, Goka! Gokai?! Phantom Thief!, Zettai Sengen Recital, GO! GO! Maniac, Romeo and Cinderella
TL:DR; Kokoro's family is throwing a masquerade ball and she gets to invite four people. Since everyone in Harohapi is busy, she invites Hina, who invites Lisa, and then they all search to invite Tomoe, and then Lisa convinces Arisa to join them. They choose fancy costumes and Kokoro pays a hog-ton of money for them. They practice dancing at the Tsurumaki Mansion but Kokoro slips on a soapy slippery staircase because she's having too much fun dancing with Hina, and she breaks her ankle. Hina is sad. Kokohina fluff. Kokoro recovers thanks to rest and high-tech doctor procedures. Everyone has fun at the ball. Hina sleeps over at Kokoro's house.
That was a very watered down version of the story; if you'd like to read a much more detailed version (which I HIGHLY recommend you do), please check out this Google Doc containing the WHOLE STORY. please look at it im cryibg :(((
“An Okey-Dokey Day!” Kokoro Tsurumaki 4★
Gacha Phrase: “Let’s have the most fun, no matter what! Se, no~!”
Untrained: Kokoro is outside of the mansion with everyone else, smiling and putting her hand in as if to do a Popipa-pipopa-popipapopipopa cheer with everyone. She also is grabbing Hina’s hand, as if she had ran outside and dragged Hina with her. Everyone’s wearing their costume, but only Kokoro and Lisa have their masks on right then and there.
Trained: Kokoro and Hina are holding hands and laughing, dancing together. Hina is facing Kokoro, so you only see half her face, but Kokoro’s face and hair and body are entirely visible. The background is galaxy-themed with aspects of roses and fanciness. Kokoro is wearing a modified version of her dress, where some of the ruffles have been extended and dotted with glittering “stars”. The torso is starry-galaxy-colored, and she has white silk gloves and she has diamond bracelets. She wears half-mask that’s galaxy-colored and her hair is done in a Chisato-esque hair style, and her fringe is braided. Her costume is also fancier in other ways, but I don’t know how to explain things. She has a silky ruffly thing on the side of her skirt-section of the dress. Kokoro’s mask is the other half to Hina’s.
”Boppin’ Starry Friendship” Hina Hikawa 4★
Gacha Phrase: “Kokoro-chan, I’m always here for you!”
Untrained: She’s helping Kokoro up on the staircase, and Kokoro is on her butt, a bit scraped up from the fall. They’re in their costumes still, and Hina is taking Kokoro’s hand. Hina’s face is filled with pure concern and she has an ice pack in her other hand. Kokoro’s face is smiling, but it’s weak and slightly strained.
Trained: BG Kokoro down a stair banister, wearing her trained costume, sitting near the bottom. Hina is sitting on the bottom staircase, holding a golden rose and pastel blue rose in one hand and holding Kokoro’s hand with the other. She’s winking + grinning, her guitar pick between her lips the way all Bandori guitarists and bassists do. Her guitar is laid out next to her on the staircase. Hina’s rose-hand is extended out in a peace sign that’s tilted to the side. Kokoro is enjoying herself in a pure way. Hina’s costume consists of a blue-ish galaxy half-mask and a much flowier version of her dress, the torso colored galaxy and the lower part speckled with glitter and stars. Fancier in other ways but I don’t know how to explain™. Background is galaxy-themes but more on the fancy ballroom side of the spectrum. Hina wears white silk fingerless gloves. Her mask is the other half of Kokoro’s.
”How I Dance~” Lisa Imai 3★
Gacha Phrase: “Step left, step right, dip down, and twiiiirllll~!”
Untrained: Lisa is doing a :3c face while tango-ing with Arisa, whose back is turned towards us, but we can see the tsundere’s flustered face. Lisa is in her costume but Arisa is in her normal clothes. You can see Tomoe dancing in the background with the Suits, and Kokoro and Hina are doing the Orange Justice.
Trained: Lisa is in her mermaid-esque dress, which is fluttering in the background like a tail. Her costume isn’t much modified except for the tail is blue-er and the neckline of her torso is in a V-shape, showing her cleavage, but the border of the neckline is a violet galaxy-color. The lighting is very glowy and mysterious, illuminating her pink galaxy mask that she holds out towards us. Her pick is between her top and bottom teeth, and she’s doing a ;3 face. She wears black lace fingerless gloves, and her hair is down and curled. She has a mini braid on the side of her fringe. Her bass is held with both her hands.
”Delivery For Tsurumaki-san” Arisa Ichigaya 3★
Untrained: She looks like she’s fussing over Kokoro, all while handing her a dancing fancy-costume Michelle felt plush-charm thing. Kokoro is beaming. Arisa wears her school uniform, and Kokoro is wearing her casual.
Trained: Arisa is rocking a purple keytar while sitting on a fancy navy blue futon in a fancy ballroom. Her hair is curly and done down normally, her bangs pinned to the side with a star clip. Her pose is similar to Lisa’s VDay 4★, but Arisa is facing forward and doing a [n~o] expression. Her keytar is lying on her, the handle grasped by her hand. Her costume is modified in which the petal-skirt is now galaxy-colored but the torso is much more rufflier with chiffon. Her mask is on the top of her head, and it’s a lavender-starry-theme.
”Fun To Attend” Tomoe Udagawa 2★
Tomoe is holding her drumsticks in one hand, her hand on her hips as she stands leaning on a staircase banister. In the other hand, she holds her red starry full mask. Her costume is a smooth, silky phoenix-themed dress, and she has a nebula-themed veil covering the skirt-section of her dress. A starry jewel necklace is around her neck.
welp i put way too much thought into this but……….. kokohina amirite
hello!!! its me, the kokohina man. lately ive been really into making wallpapers n stuff for desktop bc there arent many out there, so i want you guys to give me suggestions for wallpapers!!
so far ive made a pasupare one (today), and a sayo one (couple months ago). but i really want to make more, so which bandori girls would you guys like to see? these are free to use!! just dont repost without credit ^^
Unfortunately my ita bag won't come in time, so have a photo of my Rinrin shrine! It has some other bandori merch as well!!
I don't have much room to store all my merch so some of it isn't seen very well... This includes a YukiLisaSayo clear file and a Rimi fan
It’s been a bit of time since I’ve been super active here, but I’ve been seeing something recently that I feel absolutely has to be addressed. I have a friend who has tried to get top 10 multiple times (one time successfully!) but the past few times they’ve tried the people in the ranks above them have changed their bios to be rude to them and curse them out for trying to get into the top 10 and thus kick them out of it. This is not okay. Everyone has equal right to top 10- it’s not a luck based thing, you have to actually try hard for it. Everyone who gets top 10 put in the work for it, so while you may want to get it yourself if someone beats you it’s not like it’s unfair- it just means they put in the effort. While this may be unfortunate for you, that doesn’t mean you can be rude to others about it. Please, please, please don’t be rude to people who’re trying just as hard as you.
Aya's unconditional love and nurture for you made her a really passionate fan of yours!
That's why from (Man)Maruyama Aya she became Guardian Aya. She will watch over your live shows, from playing to the post-live rewards. She looks up to you, so she'll wish you the best of luck! You don't need to like nor to repost it.
It's actually not Sayo, or not just Sayo at least. I definitely have more in common with Arisa and Rinko, but since I'm incapable of talking about my faves without going into how I relate to them I've already covered this topic with them previously. Besides, Sayo is a fav too, just not my number 1 in Roselia because Rinko exists, and I feel like I need to put that out there.
The thing is though, I don't actually have much in common with Sayo at all. There are characters I'm much more similar to but don't relate to as strongly, like Kanon. Does that make sense? I do relate to Kanon's indecisiveness, horrible sense of direction and her wanting to give up on her instrument but that's more on a surface level, while the few things about Sayo that resonate with me broke into my house one day and punched me repeatedly in the windpipe with the Spider-Man meme. Sayo shot from somewhere at the bottom of my list right into the top 5.
It was the TsuguSayo story that did it, but it had help from the Hikawa events. Sayo learning to bake is literally me trying to do anything. Using a new program? Give me instructions. Going into a new building? Where's the room, no one told me you had to take the stairs up and then down again, where does this door lead, am I allowed in this corridor, how do you physically open this door?? You get the gist. I don't have a flexible bone in my body. I need to be told exactly what to do or else I will panic and implode. Yet Sayo is respected, looked up to, because of her attention to detail. She holds her head up high and admits to her need for things to be specific, because that's okay. It doesn't mean she's stupid, which is something I need to accept when it comes to myself.
There's her inferiority complex and jealousy too. I don't express those things exactly like she does when Hina outshines her, but she's written so well that you immediately recognise what she's feeling because chances are you've felt it before, whether the circumstances were similar or totally different.
Interesting that the characters I find the most relatable are the ones on the Hanasakigawa student council when I've never had or wanted anything to do with student councils in my life
yolo was the first afterglow original i actually really liked (to me, scarlet sky and how i roll sounded kinda like "cheap rock" (TO ME PLS DON'T KILL ME).) however, i like every afterglow cover, so picking a fav was harder... my fav cover has to be asu no yozora because the afterglow version of the song has a completely different character than the original song which i think is super cool!
While I may be a Popipa Fan, Roselia has a special place in my heart.
Believe it or not, Roselia is the Band that got me into the Bandori Franchise in general. Without them, I probably wouldn't be here tbh.
It is mostly in due part of the characters. As mentioned in a previous day, I love Sayo as much as Hina and I believe their (platonic) dynamic is one of the best in the franchise.
But I won't talk about Sayo.
Because there is a certain Roselia that is ranked higher for me.
In fact, she is tied with Kasumi as my best girl.
We are finally here.
Minato Yukina. Also known as Yukinyan, Yuki-chan, and Kasumi's Girlfriend, Yukina is one of the best developed characters in all of Bandori.
Originally a slightly arrogant solo singer aiming to best her Father (who suspiciously looks like a Kirito and Joker lovechild), she believed that one must dedicate oneself to music in order to succeed. She always strives to reach to the summit and would go the distance just to get there though she could
While this mindset still persists in GBP and after both of Roselia's Band Stories, she since began to be more mellow and friendly towards others (especially with Kasumi). This is especially evident during conversations with Band members outside of Roselia. Even before her development, Yukina had always loved cats and shows her softer (and cuter) side whenever one is nearby.
Many people's accusations of Yukina being harsh in S2E2 are mostly baseless, as Yukina is still an introverted girl that has poor communication skills, leading her to say rather blunt things to other people. While it makes her look arrogant and overconfident, she really means well but has no other way of communicating that to others. More on Yukina's harshness later.
My favorite part about Yukina, however, are her interactions with Kasumi and her relationship with said Star Kitty. Yukina has a massive soft spot for Kasumi and that soft spot is very evident in their area conversations and in Garupa Pico Ep21. Part of this reason is because Kasumi, obviously, looks like a cat, and acts like one at times too (even to the point where she hates swimming!). While she is harsh to other people, this harsh demeanor is mostly nonexistent whenever she is with Kasumi. In fact, the reason why I see Yukina more than just an arrogant bitch is because of these conversations.
While much of this relationship is mostly cat-based, there is also a level of respect the two hold for each other. Kasumi is obviously enamored with Yukina's skill and professionalism and respects her as a vocalist and a senpai (Kasumi refers to Yukina as Yukina-senpai). Yukina meanwhile admires Kasumi's guts and willingness to work hard.
But what I love about this relationship (and the YukiKasu ship in general) is how the two can compliment each other in many ways, even using their personalities to cover their negative spots. Yukina using her position as a senpai to control Kasumi's impulsiveness while teaching her to be a good singer. Kasumi taking Yukina out on dates to help her chill out more and show her a life beyond complete dedication to music.
Remember Yukina's harshness towards Kasumi and Popipa? She cares for Kasumi and wants to see her improve. Or maybe she wants Popipa to break up so she can finally adopt Kasumi.
While this may seem to be like a whole YukiKasu TED Talk, it is her interactions with Kasumi that I love Yukina as much as I do now. I love it when Yukina gets more mellow and I also love how much she wants to see Kasumi and Popipa improve. This is why Kasumi and Yukina are tied for best Bandori girl: They both bring the best out of each other.
Now if only CowardEgg releases a YukiKasu event that shows this sort of relationship at work...
