today is march 20th... do you know what the means........ do you know what that MEANS
IT'S HINA HIKAWA'S BIRTHDAY!!! MY ANGEL, THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE!
okay let's just ignore the fact that i'm getting to this much later than i hoped i would. i'm more of a lurker on this site but i absolutely Cannot resist from making a birthday post for my all-time favorite character
i made a post on this day last year expressing the abundance of love that i have for hina and since then, my love for her has not faltered even in the slightest. my love has just grown more and more and more, and i want to pour my heart out on the floor for the girl that's made such a major impact on me!
3 years have passed since i've began playing this god forsaken money-robbing hell game. laughs, cries and a looot of money has all been put down all for the beloved guitarist of pasupare and even in those painful moments where she ends up not coming home, i can't say i regret even a single moment of it
just in bandori alone, hina has been such a driving force for me over the years. i could stop playing bandori for 2 months and then the very moment that a new card of her is released, you can bet that i will fall RIIIIGHT back into the clutch of girl band hell. she always keeps me on my toes and gives me something to look forward to at all times. EVERY single time after i pull for her, i go right back to saving for her next card. rinse and repeat, and this has never ever gotten old for me. i always have something to be excited about as long as she continues getting content! i could never possibly get tired of this game
if we're getting to real-life effects hina has had on me, it's quite bizarre and sorta embarrassing how long i could go on a tangent about that for - hina has really shaped me to be much more driven towards pursuing my goals (especially in my music), being a reminder to me that i can always push even farther beyond what i think my limits are. she's encouraged me to always give things a shot, even if i wind up not being good at it. because of her, i've come to understand that i'm not just going to be gifted with all these talents or skills (ironic as she's so quick to learn anything and everything... i know), but that i can shape myself to learn anything as long as i apply myself. i find excitement out of giving myself a challenge now more than ever, and have learned to become much more of an optimist in turn. i could go on foreverrrrr, but i think you understand the jist of it. hina has done a LOT for me
this teal-haired 2d bundle of pixels just has everything i could love in a character and more. she's just such a genuinely fun and unique character so far out of the realm i've ever seen before in media. hina hikawa is such a breath of fresh air with so much dimension to her. i could never, ever get tired of reading her event stores, and i sometimes even find myself re-reading the pasupare main story simply because of how much i love love LOOOOVE her development through that story. every time hina appears in the anime, i seriously light up!!
customary of my birthday posts, i want to give the biggest of happy birthday wishes to my now 6th favorite girl, sayo hikawa!!! although you've been bumped down a rank by chiyu, it doesn't mean that i love you any less! it's not typical of me to fall for the more stern and mature of characters, so sayo really is a special case for me. even separate from the happiness i derive from the hikawa sisters' relationship as a whole, sayo continues to enthrall me with her developments even up to this day. seeing her open her heart more to the rest of the entire cast over the years makes me so immensely happy.
although hina and sayo are polar opposites... i find it o fascinating how they're both portrayed as perfect, despite being very flawed underneath. on the surface, sayo is this cool-headed, perfection-driven and a badass in the best way possible. on the other hand, hina excels at just about everything she picks up and has what seems like an indestructible optimism about her. once you dig deeper though, you find that they're both imperfect. sayo feels inferior and can't properly convey her emotions, and hina can be too carefree and come off as insensitive and cruel. they're flawed, they're realistic, and that's what i adore about them. they're so different yet so similar at the same time
this post has been a lot more personal, since i've covered a lot of what particularly i love about hina in last year's post and i don't want to repeat a lot of things i've said but i know that come next year, i'll still have an abundance more love to unload for this genius of a girl
thank you so much to absolutely anybody who reads this!! it means a lot that somebody would take time out of the day to listen to such a long post, and i really REALLY appreciate it~
i love you so, so much hina hikawa. i'll have favorites come and go as i delve into new series and games, but you will ALWAYS hold the #1 spot in my heart. stay boppin' you pure angel. <3<3<3
Alright, now here's the thing I've been meaning to do.
Miss Hina, you've been very close to me for 127 or so days now. You always make my day, even at my very ultra super worst. Thank you so much for these days with me. I can't go a day without thinking about you. You're so boppin'! Thank you again!! <3
