So, let's not beat around the bush: there's been a lot of unpopular opinion posts.
Like a lot.
And to be real, there's a lot that have breached the line of just general hate rather than a reasonable opinion.
Because of that, this has sprouted a lot of negativity and discourse. That's not great.
So instead of asking y'all to stop and starting even more negative discussion, why don't we start making appreciation posts? It doesn't have to be just about your best girl. Talk about your best girls, your favourite band, your favourite songs, the event stories you liked, the beautiful and talented seiyuus-- anything you really truly love and appreciate about Bandori!
A lot of these unpopular opinion posts have spread a lot of negativity, and I think the only way to beat that negativity is to spread positivity!
I know some have already started doing some of those, so why don't we continue that~?
My best girl is Himari Uehara! I'm sure I've stated this a million times and the people who know are probably like, "Yes, Trashy, we know. You love Himari. We get it." But Himari has helped me a lot in the year GBP has been around. Around the time of Bandori's release, I had a falling out with a friend, and it was extremely devastating as it happened the morning after my birthday. I was crying the whole day and I had lots of trust issues with my other friends. Himari's bright and bubbly personality made me smile through that, reminding me that everything was going to be okay. I also relate to Himari in a lot ways, from being easily teased by some very close friends to wanting to do everything for my friends but being paralysed at the heat of the moment and not knowing what to do. Himari, as fictional as she may be, was my shining beacon in the last year and she has motivated me to keep going and to keep doing my best. Hey, hey, hoh~!
My two favourite songs ever are actually Poppin' Party songs: Star Beat! Hoshi no Kodou and Light Delight. Star Beat is actually the song that had me interested in the Bandori franchise, and it's what led me to meet many great people and become a moderator on this site! I love it, and do plan to cover it one day~ Light Delight is a song that spoke to me, reading the English translation of it, and I understood and felt all the emotion in it. Poppin' Party's songs are honestly very good, and are always so nice and relaxing to listen to.
The number of characters in Bandori was a bit overwhelming at first, but it's honestly really nice to see such different and unusual personalities! Each character is so unique and special, and their development in the last year has been truly amazing. The writing that goes into this game is brilliant, and I love it.
What are some things you guys love about Bandori~?
Announced shortly before the beginning of the 5th Live at Makuhari Messe Hall, the project for a "Male-Centric" universe of BanG Dream! had been revealed by announcing their very first live!
The announcement tweet gained much traction after the initial retweet from us at Bandori.Party! At this time, the only information that had been given was the announcement of 3 Cast Members: Maeda Seiji, Morishima Shuuta, and Hyuuga Daisuke, and that their first live will take place in the month of July, with more cast members to be announced. See the 3 Seiyuu introduce the project in this video!
After about an hour or so of comments of fans of the franchise worried about the interaction of the male characters with the girls from a series called "Girls Band Party", Kidani, who manages the franchise and is it's creator, sent a series of tweets to calm fans:
"The Male Bandori Project is a different world than the existing Bang Dream story. The characters will not mix and it is 100% different." Original Tweet
"I also don't want to see males appear in the world of Bandori. The limit is the characters' fathers. (Though this is just a personal view)"Original Tweet
That's all for the news round up on ARGONAVIS. How do you feel about this new addition to our beloved franchise? Remember to be courteous with your discussion, whether you're for the project or not, it is happening!

Of course there's much more you can do, but here are the basics. :) If you really like Markdown and would love to use it to take notes for class or whatever, I'd highly recommend downloading a Markdown editor like Typora!
Art, Art trained and Transparent -> These were removed
"Chibis" was an alternative view of costumes, because chibis are linked to costumes -> A direct link has been added in the navbar
★ Direct link to comics
Not a lot of people were visiting our comics gallery, and we think it's because it was hidden in the "Gallery" which you access from the "Girls Band Party" dropdown.
Comics may be from the game, but BanG Dream! fans who don't play the game may also be interested in reading them, so I added a direct link in the "BanG Dream!" dropdown.
Another possible reason why people don't read them much is that the last added show first, and they're all in Japanese. I've made it so by default, the comics are filtered by the language you speak. You can always use the side bar to select "all" if you want to see the comics in Japanese or other languages.
Once again, we'd love to hear your feedback on the changes and let us know as well if there are other features that you find hard to see!
