Happy Birthday to “The Pancake House Girl” Hanako Oku!

I reblog Denny’s birthday wishes to Oku Hanako every year, and this year will be no different. Sure, I reblogged them in previous years because I forgot to make a post, but I didn’t forget this year! My post will go up in about 13 hours so that the post is dated “March 20”, but in the meantime, to make up for the time zone difference, here’s Denny wishing her a happy birthday.

Japan is twelve hours ahead of me, so Snivy and I wanted to be the first in my time zone to wish “the Little Great One” Ms. Hanako Oku-san a HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow (today) on March 20! She is lucky — her Birthday is always the Spring Equinox.

Ms. Oku has always been one of my favorites. Of course, Snivy is a huge fan. The adorable and talented Ms. Oku has written the opening theme song “Kimi No Hana” for the romance anime “Seiren” currently streaming on Crunchyroll.

The marketing geniuses at the Pony Canyon record company have blocked any and all Hanako Oku music videos in Unova, so it is difficult for us to share the song over YourTube, or Twatter, or Glueggle +, etc.  One of these links might work however.

It is a pretty good anime theme. A good anime theme always gets you…

  1. I have a question, for her first album vol.best, how do they pronounce it? Do they just call it vol best or volume best? It seems weird to pronounce vol . Thanks!

    • Good question! I don’t actually know because I haven’t come across any videos where they mention the album name. I would assume that it would be pronounced “volume” because that’s what it’s short for, but I tend to pronounce it as “vol” just because it’s shorter. I would assume this also applies to vol.1 through vol.4.

      If you find any videos where they pronounce the title, please do share it!
