I don’t know if WK is best place for this question, but I don’t know where else to ask…
So I’m sending a birthday card to my favorite Japanese idol (if this makes you cringe uncontrollably, feel free to stop reading and leave the thread now), and I want to include a sentiment something like 今年も頑張って！But I don’t know if that would be appropriate, or if it is, how to phrase it.
These are the different verb endings I’m trying to decide between, so what do you think? Vote for any you think would be appropriate. (If you need more context, the idol I’m sending it to is a male in his forties and he does seem to be fond of the word, in general. If it matters, I’m a female about 10 years younger.)
