Happy birthday Yayoi!
Celebrated with teh bean sprout festival, just like in the anime cuz I'm a weeb like that rofl. And cupcakes!! Cuz... why not?! XD
Borrowed a griddle for this too haha.
Nah, but in all seriousness tho, I've been wanting to do something like this for her for a while. Yayoi is a special character to me; she's the one I was able to connect with the most early on, particularly when it came to family life. Being the eldest of 6 as well, I understood the struggles she had to go through, having the responsibility of always taking care of everyone while parents were at work, to being a good role model(which I often failed at), and also having similar living conditions. I remember I would always feel embarrassed or put down whenever other people pointed it out too with stuff like, "Oh wow, I feel sorry for you." There were even some times I wished I just didn't have to deal with it anymore. And that's what I admired about
Yayoi, for her strong will and energy, but most of all, her pride as big sister. Despite of all the problems she may go through at home, she never lets it show, always optimistic with a big smile on her face. Just genki all the time. XD She's kinda like the big sister I wish I had, or like the older sibling I should have been when I was younger. That's why her character episode in anim@s is one of my all-time favs, I can relate to it so much, and it gets me every time lol. Ah Yayoi~ <3
Here's a cute animation I found(kinda too big to post here):http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=55991330
