Now, if you guys know me, you know that I write a long paragraph for Tomoe every year her birthday comes along, and the tradition still hasn’t faded away. So that’s what I’m going to do this year!
I love you so much. Your personality and fiery spirit remind me to keep on going when times get tough. You’re such a mom friend when it comes to keeping Afterglow in check! Also, can I just mention that your passion for drumming is beyond levels of admirable? Heck, your little sister must be so happy to have you as a big sister, and I would be, too.
You’re really adorable when you’re embarrassed. I remember when I was watching all of the initial card introductions recently, and when Moca didn’t stop recording after Tomoe got flustered (bless you Moca) your face got really red! And it was HECKIN PRECIOUS. I could ramble on forever about that and I talk about you all of the time to my friends. Sometimes they ask me to be quiet, but I can’t. Yes I’m bi and stupid.
Deep down, you have such a mature mind filled with emotions and complexity that I can’t explain by just using words. You tend to jump to conclusions and yell at others, but it’s out of love. You only want the best for everyone that you know. That’s admirable. I’m a shy girl in a loud world, so thinking about how you can say what’s on your mind and still feel comfortable is astonishing to me.
That reminds me, last year’s letter mentioned about how you helped my social anxiety; you still do, actually! When I get anxious all I have to do is go on BanG Dream and listen to your relaxing voice. A smile creeps on my face and I feel filled with energy. No other anime character (or anyone, for that matter) has ever made me feel THAT much of a boost in a long time. So I want to thank you for all you’ve helped me through. I hope you are doing well.
Okay fam. We reach the middle of the month, and with it, to the next stop of this Happy party train tour of April.
Looking back in time, i guess i should say that this month is kind of "special" to me regarding bandori, but i'll left that for another post that is going to come soon enough, for now let's jump straight into bussiness.
Oh boy, from where should i start with today's honoree, She is basically the reason i got into bandori in the first place, and after that, A LOT of things happened 'til this day. Starting from her Seiyuu, who as she has already accustomed us, does an impressive job. Her relation with Ako is just adorable, the way she treasure her friends (old or new) and how always try to act as the more mature of them, even if that backfires on her due to her hot-blooded temper. Or those rare moments when we can see her having an "Older sisters talk" with Sayo and giving her some advices or opinions. I simply should say that i adore everything of this lady.
So, for this and those other many more reasons i didn't mention because if i do this would turn out to be a post of biblical proportions. I once again ask all of you to join me and raise your glasses for our lovable Red-headed, the drumer of Afterglow.
A Very Happy Birthday Tomoe! Now give me some Soiyas for her!
