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
A lot of people dislike Argonavis :(( ...
Like I get they came after bandori, and its kinda weird to see AAside being "from BanG Dream", but everyone should at least give them a chance. Also, during the Garupa Audience-less Firework Live in the eng bandori youtube channel, I asked a couple of the other early birds their opinion of AAside, and sadly the responses were not too good... I'm not saying names, but someone said AAside was a like a nightmare: a cringe worthy knock off-ish version of bandori centered towards girls. Kinda sad, really. At least watch the first 3 eps of the anime, and you might start to like it! I know it moves a little fast, seeing as in bandori, Popipa, the main band, was finally formed around ep 6 or 7, while Argonavis completed forming around ep 3. Still, the episodes are pretty different from bandori, which is pretty refreshing and cool to watch. Plus, the bands are so unique! Unlike bandori, where each band features middle-high school girls, AAside features band men of all ages. Anyways, sorry if my rambling was annoying :3... I just wanted to state my opinion, and explain something.
haha if you thought i wouldn't do this too you're wrong. as one of the aaside screamers on bandpa, this is crucial to preserve my reputation as an annoying argnv poster. also is this edit illegal?
First Impression: The type that's really straightforward, silent and kind of Ran-like. Doesn't talk much, but likes to sing (his face looks so happy when he's singing goal line in the preview)
Actually Ren: IS THIS WHAT FALLING IN LOVE FEELS LIKE???? I WOULD BURN ALL MY POSSESSIONS FOR THIS PRECIOUS BOY AND I WOULD BUY HIM ALL THE LUCKY PIERROT HAMBURGERS HE COULD EVER WANT. HES BABEY, HES SOFT, HE MUST BE PROTECTED
First Impression: outgoing. loud. friendly
Actual Yuto: outgoing. loud. friendly
First Impression: idk why but i thought he was gonna be a tsundere
Actual Wataru: every day i think about how beautiful he is and how talented he is and how amazing his lyrics are and how i would buy a sweets factory for him. also for some reason i think its really funny if he starts yelling at yuto
First Impression: Kind of Narcissistic, mature, and sort of apathetic to things. but he hot
Actual Rio: i love u and HEY YOURE NOT ALLOWED TO BE THAT SEXY HIT ME WITH YOUR HUGE KEYBOARD
First Impression: Kind of a jokester, a little odd but has a lot of good in him
Actually Banri: SIR I WOULD BE YOUR SHIROISHI MILK KINGDOM SLAVE AND I WOULD PAY YOU FOR IT
I got the first Danganronpa game recently, since I wanted to get into the franchise, and I'm loving it so far. I just finished the first class trial and wow those minigames are stressful. Kyoko is, so far, my best girl, and Leon is my best boy, even though (SPOILER FOR ANYONE WHO HASN'T PLAYED THE GAME),
The new argonavis episode really hit hard. I cried. But what's really admirable about them is that they always have the entire group's interests in mind and choosing ways that they are all comfortable with and enjoy. All of them have separate things they have going on (Yuto's family, Banri's injury, etc.) and yet they just believe in each other and do what they can in the moment for the group. Ren wants to catch up to Nayuta but he wants to do it with all of argonavis, and the fact that he rejected a potential professional debut goes to show how much he treasures the band. And Banri too!! At first he wanted to join a band and polish his skills so that they could become pros and earn money, but he came to like the relationship they have and wanted to make it something bigger. I honestly love Argonavis's chemistry because you can see how close they are and how they're always supporting each other. And how they made a song for Banri and said "here's a song we made while thinking of you, and we're waiting for you to come back" I just wanted to cry my eyes out in that moment. And the lyrics they wrote about him!! "please watch over us" we were pulled on by you" "there is no replacement" "hurry up and come back to us soon" "this wish is like a prayer" WATCHING BANRI GETTING MOVED TO TEARS BY THE SONG WAS TEARING AT MY HEART!! seriously, watch argonavis. it's a masterpiece.
