Happy (Late) Birthday Yamada!
Good evening! Yesterday, May 21st, marked the birthday of my favorite female anime character, Yamada from B Gata H Kei. Unfortunately, I was too busy to make a post on the previous day regarding Yamada, so here's one now!
Yamada is an interesting character. The first distinct thing about her is that her first name is never mentioned throughout her series and still remains a mystery to this day. Although her actual background is somewhat mysterious, it doesn't keep her from being an enthusiastic and open person.
Although she's not too popular of a character, (she has little merchandise, fan art, and other typical anime goods) her anime usually stands out in the minds of those who have seen it for being unique in more ways than one. This is exactly what attracted me to Yamada; she's unique and doesn't really fit into the generic anime norms.
With that being said, being born on May 21st makes Yamada a Gemini, just barely. She falls on the cusp of the dates, specifically the first day of the Gemini range. This is somewhat similar to my own birthday falling on the cusp of Sagittarius and the last day of the it's range, December 21st.
The Gemini zodiac sign fits her very well, due to her large amount of energy, multiple sides of her personality, and active personality. Gemini is also of the air element, which somewhat relates to her "flighty" character.
So again, Happy Birthday to Yamada! She has her ups and downs, but at the end of the day, she's an anime character I absolutely love! If you're interested on learning more about her and what she means to me and this blog, feel free to check out this awesome post.
Thanks for reading!
