So I've seen a lot of new people here (welcome!), and I thought of reintroducing myself!
Hello! My Banpa name's Chomama (not comfortable sharing my real name haha), and here are some facts about me!
Bandori and Garupa info:
Arisa, Tsukushi, Nanami, Maya, Eve, and Aya are my best girls of all time and nothing's gonna change that
➡️ If I had to pick one of the 6, it would be Arisa :)
My favourite bands are Harohapi and Popipa, with Pasupare and Morfonica closely tagging behind
I've been playing Garupa on EN from August 23, 2018, and JP from September 23, 2019 (it's almost been 2 years!)
I have 28 4*s on EN, and 22 on JP
Currently I've FC'd all level 27 songs (excluding full songs) but two (Louder and Zettai Sengen), and I've also FC'd a couple 28s and even AP'd a couple experts
I'm the absolute worst at solos, I don't even try doing them unless it's free or on a mere reroll (Fun fact: I solo'd Rokka's 4* in the free solo, but on a reroll I'll never use)
Currently saving for Halloween Arisa! (Or her Railgun card, if it comes early)
My favourite Bandori song is Returns, with Home Street at a close second
About me irl:
I share a birthday with Arisa
I'm left handed
Sugar cookies are my favourite snack
I'm lazy as heck
I LOVE drawing (you'll see me post some of my drawings often—I sketch with a pencil and draw semi chibis cause they're perfectly balanced)
Ummm, I don't really have a dream right now, I guess? It's kinda hard picking a career I'd have in the future, though law is kinda interesting!
I love orange juice—my dad buys it cause he doesn't like me having soda lol
I have social anxiety, so it's kinda hard making a first impression irl, though I can ramble for hours online XD
I've started learning Japanese since September of 2018. I never thought I'd come this far, cause rn I'm a semi intermediate, which, still, isn't even close to a native speaker
I LOVE LOVE LOVE anime. Although Bandori is a really amazing anime, my favourite of all time would be Full Moon Wo Sagashite (some of you might've heard about me rambling about it lol), and my favourite character there is Yui Meroko! She's a cutie bun!
Uhhhh so that's all I got! I probably have more stuff on my profile that I haven't mentioned here, so welp :P
just a little shoutout: I tend to avoid (western) fandom nowadays cause it's draining and more trouble than it's worth but the small but VERY LOUD argnv side of BanPa has legit been one of my best fandom experiences ... ever and I love u all
with argnv being a huge fixation for me right now but few of my friends I usually talk to being into it (to the ones that are: I love u also), it's so nice to actually have somewhere to put that energy aaa,,, I may not wanna get involved with it on social media but I feel very comfortable here and it's been a refreshing and wonderful experience THAT SOUNDS LIKE I'M LEAVING WAIT NO--
I'd make individual shoutouts but honestly if you think this post applies to you then it probably does. you know who you are.
and to everyone else: you're also great I love BanPa
So, it's been a year since I got into bandori, huh. For someone like me, who generally loses interest in things after maybe 6 months at most, that's pretty impressive.
I guess I should start off explaining this drawing here. It's pretty simple, and a bit silly. Misakanon was my first favorite bandori ship, as well as the ship that got me into the game! Kanon was also my first favorite character, as some of you may remember from when I first started posting on here. But since then, I've got a new favorite character and many new favorite ships (with the one here being one of my highest favorites). So of course I'm drawing haguyuki, its basically my favorite ship right now, and Hagumi is my favorite character! So basically... misakanon passing the lead to haguyuki.
Coincidentally, all four of these girls are on the very first page of bandori doodles I did. Look at how much I've improved since then though, wow.
Bandori really got me to experiment with character shapes a bunch, and my art has just been continuously improving over the past year in little ways like that. The girls are just fun to draw, even if I tend to draw the same few repeatedly.
Anyway, it's kinda a big deal that I've stayed interested this long. Normally, I'm used to getting into something and it being a one and done experience, nothing more to gain any time soon. Bandori is different, with the events always building on the characters, and now even more characters than before! And it's a really nice experience. Plus, as a lesbian looking for anywhere to get an actually substantial amount of wlw content, this series was a blessing, since like. You can't exactly get other kinds of ships out of this without genderbending, and that seems to be pretty rare. But let's face it, as much as I love shipping, I'm much more invested in good characters, and bandori delivers on that and more. Combined with more content practically weekly, and a really fun game, it's kept me here this long!
And of course, the community is pretty cool. I was honestly prepared to sit in my little lonely corner without anyone else to talk to about this stuff, and my posts here were kinda just me yelling into the void for a while, or tossing occasional content out in hopes that people would pay attention. But at least I had a specific place to do it, lol. Recently though, lurking alone in my corner of bandori hasn't entirely been the case, since I've actually gotten to know some other fans better now :D It's pretty great, being able to talk about stuff and have others understand. As much as I love my irl friends, I'm pretty sure I confuse them a lot when I get into new stuff, so it's nice having friends that won't be completely lost if I start rambling about characters.
Now, I think I'm running out of things to say. Thank you again to everyone who has made this past year so much fun, and hopefully I'll still be here in another year to do this again!
i’m just going to thank the people in advance who wished me a happy birthday because it means a lot, really!!
so far this community has been a really comforting place for me, it’s nice to be able to come to this place whenever i feel like the world is too much for me to handle. from the funny and creative posts people like Can_I_join_Hello_Happy_World, Chomama and zaynsenpai create (don’t worry there are plenty more), or the amazing artwork people like GummiGum or -ChomamaLi- and salted.candy make (literally every artist on this site are amazing) and just in general all the other cool posts everyone here makes.
