Well, it all started a couple of years ago, when my friend showed me SIF at a convention. I chose Hanamaru as my starting girl and played some songs, and I was hooked. I played SIF more and more, I began collecting nesoberis, and I even dressed up like Hanamaru at the same con where I first was exposed to Love Live!
The music was so good to me, and I loved how so many of the songs involved believing in yourself and working hard for your dreams. It inspired me through some rough patches, and I came out of them with more love and passion for Muse and Aqours.
Also, Hanamaru is so dang cute, so of course I stuck with the franchise for her! She has a beautiful voice (thank you Kinchan), and she inspires me as well because I relate to her so much. I’m bookish and tend to keep to myself, but I am loyal to my friends and will support them no matter what. I also have an appreciation for food like she does, and I have had a few “mirai zura” moments before! XD
I also really like Eli. Maybe it’s because I kinda like girls and she’s the most beautiful girl in Muse to me, but still, I appreciate her.
Now, I am the owner/mother of 5 nesoberis (4 Hanamaru, 1 Eli), and I am eager to see what the future holds for Love Live! and the wonderful community it created. As a whole, Love Live! has inspired me to work hard, stay true to myself and the people around me, and be happy even when things look bad!
