Greetings!
Welcome to my fourth article on this website.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/12/12/2942397.png

I wasn't too sure if I should write a whole article for/about this, but honestly, why not?
So sit back and watch me rambling about how much I love this character and what I did to celebrate her.
View spoilerHide spoilerThis article was inspired by setokaibaswife's article, so go and check them out.

Phew, time sure flies. It almost feels like yesterday that I laid out every piece of Iwasawa merchandise that I owned at the time to take a picture of it View spoilerHide spoilerand got into an argument with animecore people just because.
And here we are again, it's finally time to do the same - just bigger.

First of all I wanted to talk about the history I have with this character.
I discovered Angel Beats! pretty early back then, almost immediately after its release in 2010. I not only remember instantly falling in love with the show, but falling even harder for one of its characters. That character being, you guessed it, Iwasawa Masami.

And oh boy, let me tell you my 9 year old self really fell head over heels for her.
There was just something about her and the show that always brought me back.
Sadly around that time there really was just the anime that only featured her for 2 episodesView spoilerHide spoilerwith one of them being completely dedicated to her and her 3 songs.

It certainly was hard to see your favorite character constantly being pushed into the background and even to some extent be replaced...but did that stop my girl? Nuh uh. She stayed strong, played a really important role in the prequel manga, got new songs and even got her own route in the visual novel adaption of Angel Beats! that has her face on it - like no joke, she OWNED that VN.

I am so incredibly proud to be a fan of her. She started with almost nothing and now is a well established character.
She even surpassed her all-so-beloved and well known successor, Yui, in the Key popularity poll for their 20th anniversary - just by being herself.

Being able to watch her grow over the years was something truly beautiful and being given the opportunity grow with her even more. She accompanied me through half of my life. Through countless happy moments and hardships. And honestly, even though she's just fictional, I couldn't imagine my life without her.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/09/21/2525243.jpeg

She has come so far and God knows what the future will hold for her. The only thing I can say for sure that I certainly will be there to witness it and cheer her on.

Anyway.

Now it's time to show off this year's display I put together.
Unfortunately I couldn't display everything the way I wanted, simply because due to the lack of space, but I tried my best.

Here we have the whole display;

It certainly took some time and work to put everything in place.

Here are the closeups;

Gosh, I wish she had more stands.

Remember this gem? :^)

It was such a pain to put everything back.

This pretty much concludes this article, I think. Tell me what you think, if you want!

It's funny to think about that everything basically just started with simple admiration, but turned into so much more over the years.

Anyway²

Thanks for reading!

virgogf3 months ago#115505053it always makes me so happy to see your love for her!!! she's been one of my best girls for the past decade and it always feels like everyone's forgotten her so it's a real treat to come on here and see your beautiful pictures and article filling the home page <3 happy iwasawa day!!!!
Aaaaaaa, thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate it and even more to see others acknowledge her. It's not necessarily that people forgot about her, they simply never got to truly know her. That's why I can only recommend the manga and the visual novel!
It's so nice that I'm being given the opportunity to introduce her to people like this. :')

LiLMoon3 months ago#115505025You're welcome! And thanks for complimenting my collection. I never really got into Angel Beats, but I did listen to the music and I still love it to this day. "My Song" is still one of my favorites so I can totally understand your love for Iwasawa.
Don't mention it. With that dedication you definitely deserve all kinds of compliments and acknowledgment!
And that's unfortunate, but at least you were able to get into the music side of it. Angel Beats! has such a beautiful soundtrack, so it's nice to hear that you could enjoy it!

rainbow3 months ago#115504889happy birthday iwasawa! angel beats is a series i've been wanting to revisit for years and i always feel that spark of interest again whenever i see your posts and collection. lovely article and absolutely beautiful dedication!! ♡
You should definitely do that if you got some time to spare! I would also recommend reading the prequel manga "Heaven’s Door" as well. It gives a lot of characters the much needed time to shine!
Thank you so much for following my posts. I will try my best to keep posting AB! related stuff!
