Here comes our underrated beauty, Hagumi Kitazawa!! Most of the people claim that she's too much like Rin from Love Live, but I think that they have extremely significant differences from one another. Putting that aside, her personality is way too precious and generous. She gets sad if someone seems disappointed in things like competition, believing it to be her fault. Her development in the anchor runner event is very overlooked, but she learns how not everyone can be happy at the same time. Also, free croquettes when she feels like it, how much more friendly can you get?
Something worth mentioning is the backstory behind her family. In her initial 3* story 1, it shows that her parents get tangled up in fights a lot, many dangerous things get broken, her father sometimes runs away from home, and Hagumi definitely is not in a safe environment. Yet, despite all this she keeps her happy go lucky smile on, works hard for her band's dream, and makes sure others smile. You can say that she's just a sidekick of Kokoro, but I do not think that's the case! Sure, both of them are over the roof optimistic, but Hagumi is different from all sorts of perspectives.
just give her love and get her out of the underrated girl's list please she doesn't deserve this and she does so much
pasupares is even better like especially chiichans character development?!?!??? at first shes not really into this but that one chapter with aya the bubblegum baby selling tickets in the rain and then chiichans like ok aya just this once and chiichan and aya warm up to eachother and kaplow theyre nice to eachother
but also ayas burning passion to actually sing and not fake it is just eeuurrggghh its adorable and she never truly accepted defeat she just got back up and kept fighting + eves bushido spirit = ultimate pastel girl power
