Ever since I had first gotten into Love Live! years ago, Honoka has always been my best girl. I fell in love with her right away. I love her personality and her voice, and she is simply so gorgeous and vibrant. Throughout the anime series I feel that you can really see her character develop and that there is more to her than what she may first come off as, and it greatly saddens me that some people can hate her so much. One episode in particular that always stands out and causes my respect for Honoka to grow is the one where the second years were stuck on their trip and were going to miss the wedding themed live show. Honoka chose Rin to be the leader and wear the dress. Despite the fact that they hadn't known each other for all that long, Honoka knew that it was something Rin really needed. Compared to the first season, Honoka has shown that she can really understand others, and that she truly cares greatly for everyone in µ's.
Thinking about Honoka and her positive personality always help me feel better. Using her nendoroid and the cheer girl outfit from the nendoroid more series, it looks like she's cheering you on, and I can just imagine her shouting "Faito Dayo!!" She helps motivate and get me though difficult tasks.
In anticipation of her birthday, I spent way more time than I probably needed to to make a Honoka wallpaper for my phone. I did a collage out of a whole bunch of her cards (thank you Tomodachi for those high quality transparent pics!). If anyone wants it, I can post the actual file. I also worked hard to save up 70 love gems for her birthday step up scout but sadly was not blessed with her birthday UR and only got a few SRs. (70 love gems might not sound like a lot but for someone who doesn't spend money on the game, it is to me.) Sometimes I swear this game knows Honoka is my favorite because I pretty much never get her cards.
I hope this isn't too long! HonokaFanAwards2019
