They’ll get the wrong idea if you so much as talk to them, and they’ll be happy to just get homemade cookies from you. So they don’t have to taste good. — As long as he knows you tried your best, wouldn’t that sway his mind?
-Hikigaya Hachiman, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
That quote from the very first episode of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU was stuck in my head ever since I found out Yui Yuigahama’s birthday was the 18th of June. While Hikki is talking about the simplicity of teenage boys, I feel it can definitely be turned around the other direction as well. As such, I decided to bake a cake for Yui. There’s no secret as to how important SNAFU is to me, so I wanted to pay it back somehow.
Michael felt the same way, so he also made a cake (below) and we both decided to collaborate on the celebration by recording a cover of Hello Alone, the ED for SNAFU, both in it’s original form and the ballade sung by Yui herself. We perform both in English and Japanese, with the English lyrics being written by the me (based on the original Japanese ones). We’re no professional singers, we just did it for fun, so please enjoy our little single below;
