Shipping OTPs (One True Pairing) is the highlight of my fandom experience, and is one of the reasons I decided to get this domain name X3 So I plan to feature only my dearest OTPs on Hatsukoi ♥ The main theme for each design is first love (of course!), and each version represents one of the four seasons ★

Current Design

Version 03: Otome no Kiss Spring~
Theme: I fell in love at first sight, a simple fated love
Featuring: Aram & Airi (Merupuri)
Launched: December 25, 2017

For this third major revamp, I wanted to create a super fluffy and romantic design that would make everyone's heart flutter a little X3 It features Aram & Airi from the manga series, Merupuri ♥ Although Aram starts off as a cold prince, I love how protective and gentle he becomes when he falls in love with Airi ♥

Spring is a time of new beginnings, and is a fitting representation of their innocent relationship. The title Otome no Kiss translates to a maiden's kiss and is inspired by the fated kiss that Airi gives to Aram to release him from a magical spell gone wrong ♥ I wanted a rustic and romantic theme, and included lots of brown, pink, and green.

The theme is again inspired from a song by J-pop group Morning Musume, entitled Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~ ♪ It's a very pure and cute song about how happy a girl feels when she is in love, and I thought this particular line fit Aram and Airi's pure relationship:

Japanese: 出会ったらすぐ恋になった、気取っちゃない運命の恋愛
(Deattara sugu koi ni natta, kidocchanai unmei no renai)
Translation: I fell in love at first sight, a simple fated love
