Dearest Hanamaru-chan, Happy Birthday! I wanted to use this chance to say that you have been the absolute best to me, and that I hope you are happily celebrating your birthday with Ruby-chan, Yoshiko-chan, and the rest of Aqours. I wish I could be there to celebrate with everyone too! (´;ω;`)

You have given me the motivation to keep studying Japanese to be able to understand what you say completely. You have always stayed by my side when no one else was able to, just like how fans including myself, will always stay by your side.

I love your selflessness of wanting your friends to shine, and this is something I look up to you for! I am so incredibly jealous of Ruby to have you as her best friend, giving her the push she needed to follow her dream. You have taught me to be grateful with what I have, and that happiness doesn't mean you need to be extremely popular or confident or anything, because that is what I had thought for a long time. Even though loneliness is something we both feel, we both have our own small happinesses, where hers is reading, and mine is crochet. Hanamaru-chan, you and the rest of aqours have inspired me to become more positive, as well as know the joy of spreading happiness to people all over the world through our own hard work! ( ˆoˆ )/

Hanamaru-chan, even if I'm unable to support you directly, please know that there are many fans out here, including myself, who are willing to offer love and and support like you do to the other members. You've come so far, from a quiet girl content with reading books quietly in a library, to spreading positive energy as a school idol with everyone in aqours. Please don't ever stop being you!
