anhane is back... summer is nearing over. this is a bit long lololol
my summers are all usually boring with nothing to invest my time in, but this year it was slightly different. you see, i really had nothing going for me, as i was slowly losing interest in genshin and bandori, thankfully i had project sekai to keep me for the first 2/3 weeks. (i also started migrating to the danmei fandom which is arguably the best thing that has happened in my life).
after a while though i started questioning my identity since there was nothing else to do. just before july strolled in i figured out i was lesbian, just in time for the lesbian apocalypse. the apocalypse wasn't anything special, at least to me. after the apocalypse died out i felt i hadn't yet grasped my identity and started exploring more; therefore that's why i am lesbian, transmasc, aroace, and agender today. during the apocalypse, i followed someone/someone followed me. this would be my future s/o.
we started talking on tiktok, and at the start, i didn't want to speak to him that much since i had a lot on my mind; but slowly, very slowly after i added him on discord, i got used to him. i felt that he actually cared about me. one day i put 'i want a partner' as my status and they immediately dm'd me and said 'ME'. then we were together. after that, he talked to me constantly and we ended up creating a friend group. although nowadays the group isn't thriving as much i still care about the friends i made with him. just recently he showed me his face AND WOOOOOOOW i could go on and on about how cute he is istg... yet recently he also relapsed and as well started school, i feel bad but i don't want to do anything to hurt him on accident.
on the topic of school, my school supplies/clothes are arriving and i'm starting in less than 2 weeks, and tomorrow is my sister's 'meet the teacher' and my market day, on thursday i'll be going to the beach which the only part i'll be enjoying is driving there and driving back.
so, basically this summer i figured out my sexuality, got a s/o even though i didn't necessarily want one, figured out i had OSDD 1b wait i forgot to mention that, and a lot more. my friends at school (if i consider them that now) are going to see a new me.
This is an actual masterpiece. Made my will to live skyrocket and I will forever be in its debt. Also this is from @Can_I_Join_Hello_Happy_World ‘s YouTube, so cred to them.
hi i just quickly wanna dump my thoughts ab Pareo bc i keep thinking ab her again and again
Pareo's such a very kind and delicate character...
ever since she was in elementary, she's been keeping up a persona that wasn't her true self. Upholding to the expectations of everyone around herself: parents, peers, teachers. She's an amazing student and even good at sports (kicking butt in basketball!), she even has an affinity for those things and it's not like she dislikes that part. But to her, it also was a role to maintain, deep down, she's the girl we came to know her as in S2.
She didn't think she was able to be true to her feelings, that she needed to keep that image of a perfect student up (to the point that she lied and said she wanted to be a doctor when she was still small.). But then RAS came along, and like Pareo said in S2, Chu2 pulled her out of the darkness.
We don't know how exactly they've met yet, but Chu2 probably found her online through the Pasupare piano cover videos she posted (where she purposefully didn't show her face), and something in their scouting confrontation just...sparked. Something that Chu2 said/did probably made her reconsider, to be open about herself and her interests. So it's no surprise she's so attached to Chu2, she brought in a turning point in her life of facades.
Chu2 generally seems to have a great insight on others desires when listening to someone's music once she's intrigued with them, as already shown with Rei and Masuki before the Pareo chapter.
I think a lot of people, especially ones dealing with depression, can relate to this sort of thing. I know I can relate to the maintaining a different persona thing. To smile and act things are okay, when they aren't. The want to be someone else, whilst crumbling from the inside. For Pareo to have lived like that since she was just a young child, and now she's in middle school; it makes my heart ache. Pareo cried when she first saw Pasupare on TV, because they supported each other, and had the support of their fans too. Pareo meanwhile had none of that.
Some other things I think are worth mentioning but lie more in the theory side of things:
One of Pareo's dislikes is listed as "Lies", this might stem from the fact that she's basically been living a lie she built up herself.
There is one fan-letter in the Maya event "My Ideal" that says something along the lines of having an admiration for Maya because she can openly show what she likes, whilst the writer is afraid of what other people would think. It lines up perfectly with Pareo's story so far and might be implied to have been written by her.
Pareo is/was(?) called by Nyubara-san by her classmates, and she didn't speak in third person in her backstory. However, in Bandori S2 she refers to herself as Pareo in third person, implying she wants to be called by something cuter than Nyubara-san. (For anyone who doesn't know: her full name is Reona Nyubara, Nyubara being her last name)
Okay, here are my blood type predictions for the rest of the members from Poppin'Party, Morfonica and RAISE A SUILEN since their blood types were yet to be confirmed while Arisa's blood type was AB as Mashiro and Rokka's blood types were both A.
