Hello again everyone! Today marks the birthday of another of my favorite characters, Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4. It just so happens that two of my favorite characters in the world share birthdays that are only a day apart. What's even more ironic is that they represent two opposite elements, fire and ice.
So while we focused on the icy side yesterday, we'll be focusing on the firey Yukiko today! Now, this isn't the first time celebrating Yukiko's birthday on Shooting Star Dreamer. So if you get the chance please check out my previous post, "Happy Birthday Yukiko Amagi!"
Yukiko Amagi is a very interesting character. Despite being a fire-based character, she isn't extremely hot-headed or aggressive. On top of that, her name can mean Snow Child or Snow Girl, which is ironic in comparison with her battle style. Being born on December 8th makes her a Sagittarius, in regards to zodiac.
One of the reasons why I greatly adore Yukiko is because she breaks stereotypes. She doesn't follow the traditional character scheme when it comes to her element, and her character isn't build solely on this trait. She's also a reminder of the direction I wish Shooting Star Dreamer to head towards in the future. I want Shooting Star Dreamer to break the otaku stereotype, and turn the word into a more positive symbol.
With that being said, Happy Birthday again to you Yukiko! Thank you for being the wonderful and inspirational character that you are!
Hopefully you all enjoyed this quick birthday shout out, and if there's a character you wish to see on Shooting Star Dreamer, please leave me a comment and let me know!
