I’m terrible at words but I’m gonna try my best to describe my feelings towards Hoshizora Rin.
To Rin, Happy Birthday! I’ve celebrated 4 of your birthdays so far, each year having my love grow for you grow more and more.
I’ll start at the very beginning. January 11th 2016, I downloaded the LLSIF app. I started reading the story and immediately fell in love with you! You were so cute, your voice was so sweet and my heart was so warm just seeing how adorable you are. I desperately wanted a UR of you but it never came.. Not without trying of course. I remember when Valentine v1 came out I spent money for the first time to no avail… I decided to save for Pool. Which at some point they started putting both URs in the same box to get ready for Aqours. I was robbed of enough time, I only had 100 gems but still prayed you’d come home. I was… unlucky. I cried. “If only I had enough time, I’m sure I could’ve gotten her!” I thought.
It wasn’t until January 17th 2017 that I got my first UR of you. There was a Lily White box, It was Hanayo’s birthday so I got 5 gems. I decided ‘why not?’ and solo’d. My eyes grew wide when a UR popped out but my heart.. It gave out when I saw you. I cried, right then and there. I was so.. unbelievably happy! Since then, I’ve gotten 8 more URs of you, each one making me so happy. Some I whaled for, others I got out of pure luck, either way I was so grateful to you for blessing me like this.
I remember when I watched the anime I would always feel so happy when you’d show up. Just hearing your voice made me so happy! I related alot to your struggles with liking the things you like.. I used to be a tomboy aswell, thinking that was just what I had to be since I wasn’t conventionally pretty.. in my eyes anyway. It was like a protest even though there was nothing to protest about? It’s only recently I became comfortable being myself. I wanna stop pretending I’m someone I’m not. I want to have people like me for me.
These past 4.5 years together have been more amazing than I can describe.. It’s a time I’ll always be grateful for till the day I die. You are so important to me it’s not even funny. I want to always see you smile, forever. I wanna see you grow and be the best you can be.
I really am bad at words but my god, I love you so much.. Everytime I see you I just.. Feel so much better. You make me so happy, so overwhelmingly happy… Please continue to smile forever.
And here’s where I’ll share my very small amount of merch aha,,
I wish I had way more but I’m content with this. I’d love to get her manju soon and much more charms.
And of course, I wanted to draw her so here’s a quick thing I made for her!
Happy Birthday, Rin. I love you so so so so so much. Thank you so much for supporting me through so many tough times and understanding when I wasn’t focused on you. I hope you know how much you mean to me. Nothing could ever make me dislike you, you are my everything ♥
Aaaa-- Happy Birthday my best girl! She has been shining my day and always bring me joy;; I can't express how much I love you <3 I have been celebrating rin bday for like 5 years right now, and this year I make a special rin bday art for her <3 I will always and always have a special place for Rin in my heart, Thanks for exist in this world my sunshine! ;_;
here's a little late birthday "present" for my all time best girl, rin!
ever since i got into love live five years ago, rin caught my eye. she had become such an important character to me over the years, and i can relate to her so so much! she struggles with the same things i used to struggle with, and she helped me through them. <3
thank you, rin-chan, for making me happy every day! nya~

Rin, you're like a daughter to me. I think you're so cute, and strong. You really had a lot of self esteem issues and you overcame them so beautifully.
I had a similar issue to Rin being made fun of for dressing "girly". I still don't, it's not my style, but I understand the fear behind it. It really touched me. Seeing her wear her skirt proudly to practice for the first time was such a proud moment!
i’m so happy to be able to celebrate my absolute sweetheart’s birthday! i was super exciting and made me so happy that i was able to make a cake for her this year, and set up all the merch i own of hers!
i’ve definitely been through quite a few best girls during the time i’ve known about love live, but rin has by far been the one that i’ve had for the longest and grown the most emotionally attached to. she’s so incredibly important to me, and makes me feel better when i’m down. it might sound a bit superficial but being able to collect cards of hers in both sif and all stars just lets me feel nice and is a kinda difficult way of showing my love for her (even when i don’t get her limiteds i get upset! F.) !!
my goals for the future with rin are being able to collect all her cards in both sif and all stars on one account, finishing off my neso collection and getting more of her figures, and doing more for her next birthday!! i hope to make some ramen next year 🍜
heres to another year for rin! 💛
Hello! Finally decided to create an account here lol
A bit late but here is my Rin fanart for her birthday ^^
I'm a small artist from Portugal and I've been in the Love Live community for over 4 years now. Hope to make some friends here and I'll be sharing my love love related works ~
Well, where to start? If I'm going to be completely honest, on my first watch of Love Live I found Rin boring. I didn't use to like her and she was at the bottom of my Muse list. After my second watch however, I began to start liking her as with the rest of the first-years. I almost cried at Love Wing Bell due to how Rin gained the confidence to wear dresses and beamed as she walked out of the door with her new and improved practise outfit with dress.
Onto gaming, Cheer Girl Rin was the first UR I bought from the Sticker Shop (and the only one to date, not counting promos) and Dancer Rin was my first All Stars UR max levelled and costume unlocked (back in the days of needing so many silver macarons...) and fits quite well with KOKORO Magic 'A to Z'.
In terms of music, I like a lot of Rin's songs. While Kururin Miracle isn't high on my list, Koi no Signal Rin Rin Rin is, and so is Mermaid Festa vol 2 Passionate. Love Wing Bell is also a sweet song.
So, there we have it. Another birthday, another birthday post. See you all for Rina Tennoji's birthday on November 13th :)
Happy late birthday Rin-Chan! You didn't come home in game but you came home in real life with your plushie, who arrived just in time! Thank you for helping me through my troubles, and I hope you had a wonderful birthday with the girls! (:
