It's the day, it's finally Hanayo's birthday! I was looking forward anxiously to this day!
First all, sorry if my English is bad, but my maternal language is Spanish, however I want to shared my love to this rice lover with all.
To begin with, I would like to tell you a little about my story: At the end of 2015, I started a Love Live cover group in Spanish, where I was assigned to Hanayo. At that time, I didn't know anything about her because I had 0 knowledge about the franchise, however, when I started to play SIF, I chose her and what I saw from her cards and their audios, I thought Hanayo was so cute (an applause to Shikako for her great job).
But my love for her came when I saw the anime: her story where she loves everything about school idols but she thinks can't become one because her shyness, but with Rin and Maki's help, doubts ceased becoming in bravery. I love it, especially her friendship with others of first year.
However I couldn't enjoy it very much because as soon as I started watching the anime, I read that the Final Live was going to be held. And I thought: I can't longer enjoy μ's and Hanayo as much as I would like.
I know I would still continue with SIF and later with Puchiguru and SIFAS, but I wasn't able to feel the same. What I would have liked is to see Shikako, playing as Hanayo, with the other members from μ's in some radio program, streaming...
And when they announced Love Live Fest with all participants and I watched μ's logo, I start to cry for happiness, really. Because I was going to see Hanayo and μ's one more time, and not only that, I was going to see all girls interact with Aqours, Saint Snow and the Nijigasaki. With this, I imaginated one thing: when all girls finished their presentations, I imagined the Fest goers lighting up the green place and exclaim: OTANJOUBI OMEDETOU, HANAYO CHAN! (Happy birthday Hanayo chan!) Remember that the Fest will be on the 18th and 19th, when Hanayo's birthday will be on 17th.
(Sorry for image's quality. I don't have a scanner where I can scan the draw).
Unfortunately, I can't attend the Fest, either I can't see it in any cinema because where I live they do nothing in relation to Love Live. The little that brings here is counterfeit merchandising, but at least I'm glad to think that Shikako would read my message for her and Hanayo thanks to a person who started an idea that fans would write messages for seiyuus and would collect them in notebooks and get them I would give each one the corresponding one.
This message was what I put to Shikako. Because thanks to them, I met my real friends and I do something that I love, that is to sing. I don't know how long I will still like Love Live, but I am sure that thanks to Hanayo, this stage of my life has been very happy.
That is why, thanks Hanayo, thanks Shikako. Thank you for your hard work and I will continue supporting it. And, thanks to all for reaching the end of the publication.
I hope you liked it and let's continue enjoying Hanayo and Love Live for longer time. ♥
💚Happy Birthday Hanayo!💚
Hanayo is my forever best girl, so I had to make her birthday post my first on Idol Story! This year, I’ve decided to do a dance cover of Start Dash in her honor. I can’t upload videos on here, so here is the cover for it. I have it posted on Instagram @angeldreamslive at this link https://www.instagram.com/p/B7brhPwnzQq/?igshid=jxt28nula7du if you’d like to check it out!
Hanayo was the first person who showed up for μ‘s when they performed, and she was the first girl who taught me what it meant to shine. Love Live came into my life when I was struggling to find my purpose. I was too shy to put myself out there, and was often left alone because of it. Hanayo’s growth pushed me to seek more for myself, and this last year I decided I was going to join a group just like her.
After trying very hard, I found my place. That position lead me back to her. I am so honored to represent Hanayo through cosplay and dance. It feels like everything has circled back to this moment and to her. This is why I chose to do Start Dash. When she saw μ‘s perform that first day, she gave it everything she had so that she could sing and dance with them. Now it’s my turn. I hope that in a year I will be able to improve just as much as she did with μ‘s. Please enjoy my first performance with Hanayo in Start Dash!
Thank you for taking the time to read this little love letter to my best girl >•<

Oh my god it’s finally time???
(I’m one day late I’M SO SO SORRY HANAYO BABY) But oh my gosh it’s really this girl’s birthday!!! Miss Hanayo means the absolute WORLD to me. Ever since I first booted up SIF back in 2017 and had to choose a character at the start of the game, I didn’t know any of the girls and randomly went with Hanayo but oh my goodness did I choose right- Hanayo will always be my favorite girl, from Love Live, from ANYTHING really. She’s so special to me, and always makes me feel happy whenever I see art of her or new content made with her and I just- I cannot express my love for this girl in words! Hanayo, you will always be my #1 comfort character, thank you so so much!! 💚🍙💚🍙💚🍙💚🍙💚
As I was pressed for time, I didn’t get to make any art for her birthday unfortunately so here’s all of my current hanayo merch? It’s not much at ALL and I really hope to grow it soon!!
Hello everyone! I'm finally posting my celebration of Hanayo's birthday, I'm sorry it's so late!
In addition to my drawing, I wrote a letter to Hanayo and baked her a cake!!
"Happy birthday, Hanayo!
Though I can’t say that you have always been my favorite character, you have been since I started watching the Love Live! anime. From your episode, I have loved you. I see so much of myself in you: shy, unsure of yourself, yet deeply passionate and determined to do well regardless of your lack of self confidence. It was almost like seeing myself in a mirror, down to the hair and glasses. And yet, I saw you grow, become more confident, and succeed in your dreams, something I didn’t think would be possible for me.
I am so, so proud of you. You grew from a shy girl, afraid to do almost anything that would put yourself out into the world, into someone who could perform with charm and charisma to audiences of thousands. Your journey gives me hope that I, too, can grow as you did. Whenever I do something I’m afraid to do, I feel you beside me, encouraging me.
Your passion is incredible. From your knowledge of school idols to your love of white rice, it’s amazing to see such care for the things you love. It’s a trait in myself I sometimes am embarrassed of. Seeing you love so unabashedly, though, it makes me feel like even full-blown obsession like yours can be good and endearing. It almost feels silly that a fictional character could make me feel so much better about myself, but when I see so much of myself in you, I can’t help it.
You make me so happy that I can hardly describe it. I beam when I see pictures of you, I squeal in glee when I get a new card of yours. I could listen to your solo songs for hours (and I have!). I know I can cheer myself up just by opening SIF and hearing you talk about how amazing white rice is, or hearing you say “Ganbarimasu!” Never has any character been able to fill me with such happiness. It’s a truly special thing.
Happy birthday Hanayo, and here’s to many more together."
Thank you for reading (and letting me pour my heart out haha)
I really love Hanayo so much, her love for idols and food, and she's like me. Shy and passionate about what she loves. Her voice actress is also adorable and I love her voice so much. I love drawing a lot, so I took my favourite hanayo UR and drew it! The white day set really is gorgeus ,,,
