Hello, it is I, Joe, with the self-promoted title Editor in the Shadows, here to bring you another Love Live Birthday. Of course it is for Umi, the Idol waifu. How could I miss the opportunity to do this post? It is weird to think that February last year I started watching Love Live, which is thanks to Nick with Maki spam on Mondays. A year ago, reading last years post, I would not have thought I would be the one to write this post either. So for that, thanks Nick for getting me into Love Live, and everyone at AnimeCorps just in general. But enough about that, it is time to talk about Umi!
So, time to talk about some of the reasons why Umi is by far my favorite of Muse. More obvious and convenient one, Suzuko Mimori being her VA. She is my favorite VA, and this is partially due to the fact that about 90% of the time the Best Girl for the series she voices. Back to Umi, she although at times can be a worrywart, the busybody, she is just cautious and sort of motherly figure to Muse, well maybe not to Eli and Nozomi, but to everyone else she is. She is that voice of reason, but then there are times where she is well not. Although I do not pay attention to their songs when it comes to idols, I care more for the personality. Umi I just love in general. There is so much to say, it is just finding the right words are a little tricky.
With that out-of-the-way please enjoy the images. Each one links to the respective pixiv, or source page bellow the image it self. There will be a little more at the end to say.
So, looking up the next Love Live Birthday, it is Maki. Although no one did Hanayo’s birthday in January, I doubt Nick will miss this one with his waifu.
Before I go back to being the Editor in the Shadows here is my favorite Love Live song; Start Dash. Oddly enough besides being their first song it was the song that made Umi being the lyricist for the group.
As always I hope you enjoyed.
Till next time.
