In 2008 we did a webpage with wishes from everyone and drawings by ズuiyon and coloured by Kerahna,
in 2009 we didnt because we made a scrapbook for Kalafina because they were visiting AnimeBoston,
and in 2010 we did the CPM cover of everlasting song, decorated by a ズuiyon drawing again.
In 2011 we did a "Happy Birthday" phrases collage (however this wasnt sucessful since it was the only time we didnt got a response from Yuki)
and in 2012 we did a foodbook were we gathered recipes from every participant member's country as well as articles about a country's traditional foods, that were written by teams that were formed by members that leaved in neighboring countries.
In 2013 we did a photobook, with pictures of landscapes from participant member's countries and countries they have visited (+ map).
In 2014 a book with favourite songs (fav lyrics) and text saying why we liked them ( + some drawings).
In 2015 a a book containing live reports, CD / merchandise collection pictures, messages, and artwork .
In 2016 we made a cover album with members singing / playing songs, and also a PDF book with messages and artworks.
In 2017 we did Kajiura inspired comix book with some messages also thrown in.
In 2018 we did Yearly polls to vote for the best tracks of every year since 1993 (note that this one was also a failure since YK never reacted to it)

Should we make a 2019 present or not ? If yes, start throwing in ideas different than the above.

[UPDATE May 11]

Poll to decide which idea we will do, will run for 2 weeks May 11- 25
. You can still propose other idea if it comes up. If train one wins we will then consider if we will do it like
@philadelphin or @Caterpiendante propose, or not.

We also have the choise to either hand it to her with the help of one of our members during one of the YK Live vol#15 performances, or wait until her birthday on Aug 6 like most of the times.

Poll is the following, you vote on top:

I'd say keep it simple, and print a poster with birthday wishes, and have someone send it to her (Kugayama?).

How about a mash up cover from her earlier release to latest???

Or just like last 2008. Birthday card.... Well...

The difference is, they could attach on that greeting their gift, fanart, etc of their choice

We could message Emily and Clara Kennedy this time 😂

How about one of those collages made out of words that form images? We could use track titles.

We already did a cook book from around-the-world recipe, right? If it's something food-related, how about a food photobook with less info on how to cook, but just a food picture, brief description (If you can provide the recipe as well, that would be great. If not, just tell her what it is), and where you can find them (If you didn't cook it by yourself. Maybe nice if it's local food from your hometown).

To make it special, we can put a theme song from her works for the dish and explain why you think of that song when you eat that dish. For example,... "Hana no Uta" can be a song for edible flower salad. Thai 'boat noodle' makes me think of "Ship of Fool" since it's a kind of noodle that in the past, they were sold in a boat floating in a canal, etc. That may be easier than asking all participants to write a recipe.

Why don't you guys just buy her something and call it a day? Get a donation pool going and buy a large gift for her instead of going to the trouble of making something every year. I've seen some fandoms buy an advertising billboard and wish happy birthday to their favourite artists that way.

That's not a bad idea. It doesn't always have to be DIY type of gifts.
Kajiura likes to read so maybe we could get her some books. She also uses them as inspiration so if we get creative we might help her on her next soundtrack, hue.

How about a booklet of photos/pictures of trains and rail stations of our hometown with our birthday messages?

^ Οh that would be good idea, even though im not exactly proud of how some trains in my town look ^^;
Just wait, they said the new super-fast trains would start running between Athens and Thessaloniki in 2019, didn't they? :XD:

^ talking about the ISAP trains which are filled with graffiti ^^; If Yuki sees those she might vomit considering how clean the japanese trains are in comparison.

Well, it's not just about trains, something like 80% of the world is filthy compared to Japan... I mean, the average public toilet in Japan is cleaner than the average café toilet in Europe. So if you think about it that way, either we almost-all try to get clean (lol) shots, or do something else?

But it's a good idea otherwise, I can already see it being filled with katan-katan verses :dote:
