Thank you for asking!! :D Sorry for how long this took to answer, I didn’t fi nish deciding until today! It was surprisingly hard to choose. You have to think more about the outfit than the card itself, and then even your favorite outfits might not look the best for a formation dance. Some of these I’m really passionate about, others are just kinda ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Honoka: Idol Costume ♥ It’s not really that I’m big on this outfit, but rather…I just feel like the “Idol Costume” set is perfect for Honoka all in all. From these outfits being used in the last chapter of the µ’s main story as well as what she says in her side story, it just seems right for Honoka. Watch her side story here! I know she’s supposed to be talking to the self-insert player character, but it seems like a message to all µ’s fans to me.
Eli: Ball Gown ♥ I’m really drawn in by alternate hairstyles, but I love Eli’s hair down especially! I knew I had to vote for a card where she has her hair down, and this card is one of my all time favorites. The outfit itself is so beautiful! I’m really not sure how it’ll translate onto a 3DCG model (will the big dress be ok?), but if they weren’t willing to make it she wouldn’t have been in the vote!!
Kotori: Job V2 ♥ Job V2 is probably one of my o verall favorite µ’s sets. I love all of the cards from there, but I felt that most wouldn’t have had a great chance of winning other than the URs. This Kotori is super cute, and she was one of the first cards I idolized when seal idolization was implemented. The outfit is super cute too! I love the cap and the gold trim on her skirt.
Umi: Marine ♥ Since my all time favorite Umi card (Job V2) doesn’t really stand a chance, I figured I’d go with something that might be able to actually win! This card has so much fun energy. It’s great to see Umi having fun!! The outfit is really fun and lively as well
besides the shoes, but more than any
thing Umi is just perfect for a marine theme.
Rin: Flower Bouquet ♥ I fell in love with this set when it was released!! Rin looks way too cute, and the colors are perfect on her. More than anything though, I love the big flowers on her headband. She looks so adorable!! The stockings for this whole set are also great!
Maki: March/Flower Viewing ♥ My other favorite Maki card (Initial UR) was not available for voting, so I figured I’d go with this one even if it’s not likely to win. This card has always been a favorite of mine! Maki looks great as the rose of µ’s, the deep red colors of her dress are perfect on her. You can also see that she’s wearing a rose necklace that’s tied in the back with a ribbon. Honestly, I’d love to see what this outfit looks like from the front.
Nozomi: China Dress ♥ My love for alternate hairstyles won out again!! I absolutely love Nozomi’s braids!! The outfit itself isn’t my favorite, though it’s super cute too. I won’t be too bummed if this one doesn’t end up winning, but I really hope that whatever Nozomi card does win has an alternate hairstyle.
Hanayo: March/Flower Viewing ♥ A very cute card! It was really especially hard to pick for Hanayo, considering she’s always way too cute and I love all of her cards. I chose this one because it seems like it’d be easier to dance in than something like Taisho Roman, and sakura pink really suits her ♥♥♥♥♥ I will be happy no matter what wins for Hanayo though!! I really look forward to seeing her CG dance in any outfit!
Nico: February/Valentine ♥ The Valentine 2014 set is one of my all time favorites! It seems to not be very popular, but the outfits are absolutely adorable. This is one of my favorite Nico looks overall, it even managed to beat out all of her various double bun cards. The pink and red color scheme suits her so well!
Chika: Valentine ♥ I don’t really have a super strong investment in this one, I just think the Aqours Valentine costumes are adorable and Chika looks especially cute in hers. Having the mikan (her personal symbol!) on the skirt is an especially good touch.
Riko: Wonderland ♥ I love my braid Riko!! She looks fantastic here. In addition to her alte rnate hairstyle, she’s also wearing PANTS (!!!), really cool high boots and a nice jacket. A really great looking card with an amazing outfit! I really hope the hype for the Wonderland set is still high enough to let her win, though Angel Riko will definitely be a big competitor as well. Hopefully the correct Riko wins :smug:
Kanan: Animal ♥ eh………I’m just here for the big furry paws
Dia: Animal &h earts; I was drawn in by her big cool braid, but to be honest if I could change my vote I probably would. It’s a an awesome card (the snake!!!), but the outfit doesn’t really stand out very much to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ kinda seems like a big pastel blob
You: Valentine ♥ You has a ridiculous amount of good cards. This one is just one of them, but I like it a lot. She looks so cute! That’s all there really is to say about this one, it’s just super cute.
Yohane: Job ♥ My little girl grew up and she’s a magician now. And also a bunny? One of my all time favorite Yohane cards. The outfit is cute and suits her well! I love the dark pink, the rose decorations on the jacket-like thing (?) and the boots! This is a great card, you don’t really see many SRs with this much action in them.
Hanamaru: Wonderland ♥ I’m not really sure what this hairstyle is, but I like it! I also love the gentle colors of her outfit here, and the wings are lovely too. I think the fairy style suits Hanamaru very well. Out of all of her cards, this one stood out to me a lot. I love the flower decorations on her outfit and hair accessories! What cute boots as well!!
Mari: Job ♥ This is hands down the best Mari card, and if you didn’t vote for it I will destroy you. This is probably the only card that could make me genuinely disappointed if it loses. I’m pretty sure I’ve gone on rants about why this card is perfect, but you can just look at her and tell. Best card in the game 10/10 if you haven’t voted for Mari yet pls this card PLS
Ruby: Wonderland ♥ It&rsqu o;s just a reality for Aqours fans than no matter what set it is, Ruby always looks best. That’s right, Ruby has never had a bad card and she always looks amazing. I was torn between this SSR and her Job SSR, but I decided to go with this one because of the cute flowers winding up her stockings. I love flowers, so any card that has them is bound to draw me in. Her shoes are super cute as well!! It seems like the Wonderland set had especially great shoes.
REMEMBER: Today is the last day for voting, everyone. You will only have until when the day changes in-game to vote! If you haven’t yet, please go vote for your favorite cards. Also vote for ♥Job Mari♥, even if she isn’t your favorite >:)
