Happy Birthday Nozomi Toujou!
Hey again guys! Today is officially Nozomi's birthday! This post goes out to her! For those who don't know, Nozomi is a member of the Love Live idol group μ's, (pronounced muse) and one of the driving forces to the group's formation and success. She was originally the vice president of the student council in the series, and is often looked upon for her advice and "spiritual power."
Her name in Japanese can mean hope or beauty depending on the kanji. However, her name uses the kanji that means wish, written as 希. A train in Japan known as the shinkansen also shares the name of Nozomi. Being born on June 9th makes her a Gemini, an air sign of the zodiac.
For me, Nozomi wasn't originally an idol I liked. She isn't part of my favorite group, Printemps, but I liked how she was always ready to help and that her appearance seemed to differ a bit from the other girls. She always seemed like a mature-type in comparison which was an interesting addition to the group. Aside from that Nozomi shares a main color of purple, which is one of my favorite colors, thus adding more to my like for her.

So, let me know if you like this type of post. Instead of just giving you a post notifying about a character's birthday, I'd like to give you some background information on them and their design. While you're having fun and celebrating you can learn a little bit as well!
Hopefully those who enjoy Nozomi will have fun on her birthday!
