It's the day, it's finally Hanayo's birthday! I was looking forward anxiously to this day!
First all, sorry if my English is bad, but my maternal language is Spanish, however I want to shared my love to this rice lover with all.
To begin with, I would like to tell you a little about my story: At the end of 2015, I started a Love Live cover group in Spanish, where I was assigned to Hanayo. At that time, I didn't know anything about her because I had 0 knowledge about the franchise, however, when I started to play SIF, I chose her and what I saw from her cards and their audios, I thought Hanayo was so cute (an applause to Shikako for her great job).
But my love for her came when I saw the anime: her story where she loves everything about school idols but she thinks can't become one because her shyness, but with Rin and Maki's help, doubts ceased becoming in bravery. I love it, especially her friendship with others of first year.
However I couldn't enjoy it very much because as soon as I started watching the anime, I read that the Final Live was going to be held. And I thought: I can't longer enjoy μ's and Hanayo as much as I would like.
I know I would still continue with SIF and later with Puchiguru and SIFAS, but I wasn't able to feel the same. What I would have liked is to see Shikako, playing as Hanayo, with the other members from μ's in some radio program, streaming...
And when they announced Love Live Fest with all participants and I watched μ's logo, I start to cry for happiness, really. Because I was going to see Hanayo and μ's one more time, and not only that, I was going to see all girls interact with Aqours, Saint Snow and the Nijigasaki. With this, I imaginated one thing: when all girls finished their presentations, I imagined the Fest goers lighting up the green place and exclaim: OTANJOUBI OMEDETOU, HANAYO CHAN! (Happy birthday Hanayo chan!) Remember that the Fest will be on the 18th and 19th, when Hanayo's birthday will be on 17th.
(Sorry for image's quality. I don't have a scanner where I can scan the draw).
Unfortunately, I can't attend the Fest, either I can't see it in any cinema because where I live they do nothing in relation to Love Live. The little that brings here is counterfeit merchandising, but at least I'm glad to think that Shikako would read my message for her and Hanayo thanks to a person who started an idea that fans would write messages for seiyuus and would collect them in notebooks and get them I would give each one the corresponding one.
This message was what I put to Shikako. Because thanks to them, I met my real friends and I do something that I love, that is to sing. I don't know how long I will still like Love Live, but I am sure that thanks to Hanayo, this stage of my life has been very happy.
That is why, thanks Hanayo, thanks Shikako. Thank you for your hard work and I will continue supporting it. And, thanks to all for reaching the end of the publication.
I hope you liked it and let's continue enjoying Hanayo and Love Live for longer time. ♥
