Love Live! As a whole means a lot to me. I really cannot stress that enough. Through the songs and characters I learned to embrace my femininity and let myself just be who I am.
I don't have a long and heartfelt backstory relating to this franchise as I've only been into it for about 2 years now. Back in Christmas 2017, I asked my parents for some nendoroids. My dad completely ignored the perfectly good list of suggestions I gave him and picked out a few of the cheapest ones he could find (and honestly I don't blame him).
One of them was Rin Hoshizora from Love Live!! I figured it looked like a cheesy anime but I was at a dark point. I really needed some cheesy power-of-friendship crap to make me feel a bit better. So with my Rin figure by my side I proceeded to get absolutely hooked on this series and I cried a lot because wow, it's actually a lot better than I expected.
Rin's character means a lot to me. She and I have both struggled with femininity and worrying what others will think if we change our style. But thanks to her I've been able to embrace however I feel like dressing, whether it be in a skirt or sweatpants. It's thanks to her that I could start cosplaying as female characters with confidence.
###this is where id normally put some nice pictures but i cant figure out the markdown on this website gosh dangit
Love Live!'s music has given me a lot of motivation across these past couple years, especially Kuririn Miracle and Miari Ticket.
I'm not really great at socializing on forum sites like these but I love to lurk a lot and admire cute girls with you all so, I'll see you around and I love you all <3
