I know I'm a little late and I haven't posted in a while, but I want to make this since I forgot to do so last year. I also want to tell about my experience in Bandori since SHE has a lot of influence on this.
You all know who I'm talking about...
It all started when I was bored and looking for something at Play Store, and then, Bandori appeared to me on my recommended. Initially, I was only curious about their covers and gave a chance. But, altough I had no idea who everyone there was, one character draw out my attention: a smiley and silly girl, the one and only Kasumi Toyama. I don't know what exactly made me like her between everyone, but she was my favorite character with only a few weeks of gameplay.
Trying to know more about the franchise, I found out an anime (at that time it had only one season), so I started watching. This probably is the reason why I love Bandori today. According to what I had played, I was expecting a happy story with happy characters and happy moments, but no development (like GochiUsa, for example). Oh boy, how wrong I was...
At the first episodes, I really liked their simple yet touching story. The development each character had was really surprising to me, especially Saya, and Poppin'Party's formation was something real nice to see. After this, Kasumi's arc came. This was no doubt the highlight of the franchise for me. It showed us that behind a smile it can have worries and personal troubles too, and her force of will and determination is rewarded, since after pursuing her dream and helping her friends, everyone helped her back when needed, and her dream was fulfilled.
After the anime, I was so hyped I started to read every story, searched for additional information, heared their songs, trying to understand this universe to its fullest. And my love for Kasumi, who was already my favorite, only have grown. I like every single detail of her, like her love for her friends and music, her smile and cheerfulness, her being silly and spoiled, being very determinated when it comes to PoPiPa and her dreams, and also for her mania to put a whole potato on a curry.
After all this long text, I can only say I'm really grateful to know Bandori, and especially, know you, Kasumi. Without you, I couldn't have met this lovable franchise, these fantastic characters we all know and love, and even this marvelous site I happen to find (you guys are so nice, I've never felt so comfy on a online community before). Even though I know she isn't real, I just want to send this message to her, and let her know she is loved and will always have my support (and I'm really sure I'm not the only one who thinks like this), since she always put a smile on my face, especially on my bad days.
From the bottom of my heart, Happy Birthday, Kasumi!!! May your days be always sparkling, heart-pounding, kira-kira and doki-doki!!! And again, thank you for all the good things you brought us!!! We love you!!!
After almost 10 days of rest here we are again... The Happy Party Train arrives to its next stop of the month, and this one is one of the most important ones in our entire journey. But let's go down to the business and I'll explain myself.
Our honoree today is none other than the girl who, either in the franchise world itself or in ours with her Seiyuu, set everything in motion on that destined day in which she found a star shaped guitar. On that moment was where this world that we know as "BanG Dream!" began, and since then she has been through a lot, from those "dark times" where the store owners practically gave away the merchandise they had from the franchise because nobody bought it, the launch of the first singles, the original manga, the Slight change in the name of the franchise due to the launch of the game, the first season of the anime and, finally, the brilliant present in which we find ourselves.
Our guest has been with us all the way, and even she has undergone changes in the process, but at all times her intention has always been the same. The one that all of us, like her at the time, could have that sparkling and heart-pounding feeling that she felt that starry night.
Yes, she may be a dork at times and you can love her or hate her for it, but as i said before, nothing of this would be possible without her.
And so, today we gather here to congrat her, as we always do, rasing our glasses and wishing the best to leader and vocalist of Poppin Party!
Soooo . . . I’ve been really upset again this week, but for a way way way worse reason,
My mom said I can only play BanG Dream on Saturdays 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
I’ve been super sad about this because I literally won’t get any event three stars, stars from events, event titles, login campaigns, or anything. I’ll be lucky if I get to play a day of an event more than once.
Yes. This also means I might not be able to t5k for the Paris event. I’ve been trying to talk about it with my parents,
Sorry for this sadfest. I’m just . . . I’m so so so upset right now ;o;
(Also, I’m really late for Kasumi’s birthday but I’m drawing something for her right now. I’m also working on something cool for Rokka cause I love her sm <33)
