Title: OC Bios
Post by: Hime Idol on February 02, 2017, 05:07:44 AM
(timeframe – start of im@s anime)

Name: Shijou Minami (四条南実)
Birthdate: July 23
Age: 14
Hair Color: Silver
Eye Color: Blue
Height: 160 cm
Weight: 45 kg
Three Sizes: 80-55-81
Ethnicity: ½ - Japanese (father) and ½ - German (mother)
Seiyuu: Anzai Chika (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k2ZLEv9zLw)
Birthplace: Hirosaki, Japan
Current Residence: Hirosaki, Japan

Family: biological mother (deceased), biological father (deceased), Shijou Takane (sister), Shijou Mitsuo (adoptive father), Shijou Akira (adoptive mother – deceased)

Nicknames: Mina-nee (Takane’s childhood nickname for her), Mimi-chan (Takane’s other childhood nickname for her) – Minami strongly dislikes the use of nicknames.

Personality Traits: Tends to come off sarcastic, is rather blunt and straightforward when talking with others, has little patience when dealing with her sister, somewhat bullies her sister – who is oblivious to it, takes on the big sister role normally, readily gives out criticism even when not appropriate or wanted

Bio: Despite coming from an extremely wealthy family and having a popular idol as a sister, Minami acts more or less like a typical teen her age. With her mother dying after giving birth to her, Minami and her sister were cared for by their father. A few months following her birth, her father grew extremely ill and asked his close friend and former business partner to take his two young daughters until he was well enough to care for them again himself. Sadly this would never happen and he would pass away two years later leaving the two girls orphaned. The Shijou family would then formally adopt the two girls and raised them as their own children. As a child she grew up pampered without a care in the world, having everything she wanted.

Due to their adoptive father’s work, Minami and Takane moved to Berlin, Germany shortly after the adoption took place and lived there for eight years before returning to Hirosaki, Japan because of his work once again. Though very smart academically, Mitsuo realized his eldest daughter had absolutely no commonsense or practical thinking when it came to business or everyday life in general. He feared that she would ruin his company if he made her the heir but also worried about her future as he knew she could never hold down a job with her unconventional approach to everything she involved herself in. Mitsuo would go on to make a trust fund for his eldest daughter to live off of and allowed her to do whatever she wanted.

Knowing he needed an heir to pass his company to, Mitsuo began grooming Minami to take over his business. A diligent worker, Minami proved to have the commonsense her older sister lacked but was not as bright as Takane was academically. Even with all the tutors her father would hire, Minami proved to be just an above average student in most subjects.

During this time Minami began to become resentful towards her sister. She found it unfair that she had to slave away and study to take over their father’s business while her sister was given free range to do whatever she wanted; not knowing her father’s reasoning behind choosing her over Takane as his heir. When her sister left to become an idol, this created a further feeling of resentment that Minami would carry for years to come. She does not support her sister’s idol career and does not attempt to stay in contact with her. She typically ignores the texts, emails, or phone calls from Takane to spite her.

Trivia:
•    Caused Takane’s Ophidiophobia by purposely placing a live snake on her to scare her when they were little kids.
•    Minami’s frequent form of bullying was messing with Takane’s food; specifically her favorite thing was to dump hot sauce in her ramen.
•    Deep-down she loves her sister but gets a thrill in tormenting her.
•    Minami is fluent in German but not the other Latin languages like her sister. Though, unlike Takane, she is also fluent in English.
•    Despite her dislike of nicknames, as a child she used to call Takane – Ne-neechan. She rarely ever still refers to Takane as this as she believes nicknames are for little children to use.
•    She secretly wishes for Takane’s career to fail.

Name: Takaharu Minami (貴治南実)
•    Maiden Name: Shijou Minami (四条南実)
Birthdate: July 23
Age: 36
Hair Color: Silver
Eye Color: Blue
Height: 162 cm
Weight: 46 kg
Three Sizes: 83-58-84
Ethnicity: ½ - Japanese (father) and ½ - German (mother)
Seiyuu: Anzai Chika (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k2ZLEv9zLw)
Birthplace: Hirosaki, Japan
Current Residence: Hirosaki, Japan
Occupation: CEO of Shijou Enterprises

Family: biological mother (deceased), biological father (deceased), Shijou Mitsuo (adoptive father - deceased), Shijou Akira (adoptive mother – deceased), Shijou Takane (sister), Shijou Sakura (niece), Takaharu Satoshi (husband), Takaharu Seiichi (son)

Personality Traits: A lot more docile as an adult, Minami is not as sarcastic and blunt as she was when younger, is still critical of her sister but is much more lenient in her criticisms, if given the opportunity she will still try to mess with and prank her sister – though a lot less malicious than when she was younger, is an extremely strict mother

Bio: Minami continued on to go to college to continue her studies to become the CEO of her father’s company. After her first year of college her father passed away. At the funeral she and her sister were reunited after not seeing each other for four years. Initially standoffish, Minami eventually reconnected with her sister and infrequently stayed in contact with her. Roughly a year later her sister desperately came to her for help when the now ex-performer wound up pregnant following her affair with her producer. Previously as a teen Minami secretly wished for her sister’s music career to fail but seeing Takane completely destroyed by the loss of her music career and having her heartbroken, Minami’s once deep-seeded feeling of resentment soon became regret. Taking some time off college, Minami would help Takane through the second half of her pregnancy and the subsequent few months following Sakura’s birth before returning to college fulltime.

During the following years she would continue to help Takane raise Sakura, normally being an authoritarian towards the two of them. Eventually Minami would go on to become the next CEO of Shijou Enterprises, just as her father wanted, and would marry one of the accounting executives from the business and had her son a few years later.

Trivia:
•    Minami previously stated that she did not like or want children. It’s commonly believed that by helping Takane raise Sakura this caused her to change her mind.
•    She will still bully her sister if given the chance. Though she has toned down the amount of malice in her actions. Her form of bullying now is more or less pranking her sister.
•    She eventually met her sister’s close friend Ganaha Hibiki. The two do not get along in the slightest.

Birthplace: Shibuya, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan

Family: Akiyama [nee Kisaragi] Chihaya (mother), Akiyama Keito (father), Akiyama Yuuta (brother), Kisaragi Chigusa (grandmother), Kisaragi Yuudai (grandfather), Kisaragi Yuu (uncle – deceased)

Nicknames: Hana-chan, Chīsana Hanabira (Little Petal - 小さな花びら – idol nickname)

Personality Traits: Bubbly and perky, nothing can rain on her parade, sees the upside to everything, a bit disillusioned about her idol career, can be a bit airheaded at times, overly affectionate with her brother

Bio: Hanako grew up idolizing her mother’s singing. She loved hearing her mother sing and the happy feeling it gave her. Despite her mother being a national celebrity, Hanako grew up a relatively normal childhood though was prone to getting sick frequently when younger. After her brother was born her mother began to immerse herself more into her music career and eventually within a few years became rather inattentive. Hanako did not have a problem with this as her brother did and normally ignored this fact.

When she began kindergarten she befriended Sakura, an extremely shy girl who turned out to be the daughter of one of her mother’s old acquaintances from 765Pro. Hanako already grew to love Haruka and Azusa as aunts, due to them babysitting her and her brother frequently, and grew just as attached to Takane when she began to babysit her as well. It was during this time that her ‘Hime-baachan’ introduced her to ramen and got her hooked on it.

As a teen Hanako began to have the delusional fantasy that if she became an idol that she could become just as famous as her mother. The only problem was that she lacked actual singing talent…or at least comparable talent to that of Chihaya. At 15-years-old Hanako tricked Sakura into going to an audition with her and the two began their careers as idols. Though Hanako did not, and still does not, know the only reason why she was selected was because 527Pro was only interested in acquiring Sakura but the teen, who did not want to become an idol in the first place and only did so for Hanako’s sake, refused to join unless they also allowed Hanako to join.

Hanako’s career as an idol was extremely slow moving, not helped by the young girl’s refusal to take any job she didn’t seem cute enough. She only wanted to be seen as a cute idol and hated taking roles that did not fit that category. Hence why her singing talent was so poor, when given more serious songs Hanako is a decent singer but she normally refused to sing them. Nonetheless Hanako kept believing in her delusional fantasy that she could make it big time as long as she stuck it out as an idol and relied on her dancing skills.

Hanako’s reality came crashing down when, after a live, she overheard the production crew criticizing her performance and her overall lack of talent outside of dancing. Coming to terms that she would never become famous like her mother, Hanako rethought her whole position as an idol. She now goes by the motto: “When I was little, my mother would always sing to me. It made me so happy inside that I couldn’t help but smile. I want to bring that same feeling to everyone I sing to so they can smile too”. Even though she has now been largely type-casted as a cute idol only, she attempts to break out of this mold by taking on more serious roles and does begin to take vocal lessons to help improve her singing.

Trivia:
•    Starting when she was a toddler, Hanako frequently got sick with high fevers – out of pure concern Chihaya would cancel jobs when she could to take care of her even if Keito already took off from work as well. By the time she was 7-years-old she grew out of this but will still get a very high fever whenever she does get sick.
•    Hanako was around 8-years-old when Chihaya fully immersed herself in her music career and began to be completely absent. Unlike Yuuta, Hanako has no problem with this as she remembers her mother always being there for her whenever she was sick as a child.
•    Hanako hates being compared to Chihaya.
•    She won’t let on to anyone but she feels insecure over her singing as she knows she’s nowhere near the level her mother was as an idol and still is as a professional singer.
•    Loves eating ramen with Takane.
•    More than anything, Hanako wants Chihaya to attend one of her lives. And more so, even though she knows it most likely will never happen, she wants to sing on stage with her mother.
•    During kindergarten, Azusa lost Hanako during a fieldtrip to the zoo and she somehow ended up in one of the enclosures. Chihaya never again allowed Hanako to go on fieldtrips that Azusa was chaperoning by herself.

Seiyuu: Nana Mizuki singing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3MXDjDu5hM) - speaking (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ge9-ntQMws)
Ethnicity: ¾ - Japanese (father and mother) and ¼ - German (mother)
Birthplace: Shibuya, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan

Family: Shijou Takane (mother), Takaharu [nee Shijou] Minami (aunt), Takaharu Satoshi (uncle), Takaharu Seiichi (cousin), Kubo Haruto (father), Kubo Masuyo (half-brother)

Nicknames: Kura-chan (by Takane), Saku-chii (by Hanako), Kougou-sama (Empress – 皇后様 - by the other idols and fans), Kohimechin (Little Himechin - 小お姫ちん - by Ami and Mami)

Personality Traits: Very quiet and shy, let’s others do the talking for her, very gluttonous and is obsessed with food, takes on the big sister role normally with the younger idols, when on stage she becomes loud and confident, is easily embarrassed over the smallest of things, dislikes her aunt and her criticisms about her mother

Bio: For the first few months of her life Sakura was raised by both her mother and maternal aunt. Following her aunt’s return to college fulltime, she and her mother were left with only each other. Despite only having her mother, Sakura never felt that she was lacking in love or attention. As a child she adored all the attention and time her mother gave her; not knowing her mother genuinely enjoyed child games and shows as much as she did. She also did not like Minami coming over as she would commonly scold both Sakura and Takane, something the young girl did not like and was not used to.

With her mother reconnecting with her long-time friend, Ganaha Hibiki, the young girl was introduced to the animal lover at a young age. While a bit too energetic for her liking, Sakura gets along with and treats Hibiki as an aunt. When younger Sakura did not enjoy the 3 hour plane rides from Tokyo to Okinawa and would commonly have to be bribed by her mother, normally with food, to go on the trips.

When she started kindergarten she befriended, despite their vastly different personalities, a young girl named Hanako. On top of her kindergarten teacher being an acquaintance of her mother’s from 765Pro, her friend’s mother was also from 765Pro. Due to her teacher being similar in nature to her mother, Sakura took an instant liking to Azusa. On the other hand, with her calm and quiet nature Sakura found Chihaya to be someone she could easily get along with as well.

Hibiki, hoping to get some of the 765Pro girls back together, tried to set up a reunion of sorts down in Okinawa. In the end only a handful of the former idols attended (Azusa, Takane, and the Futami twins) and Sakura also went due to her mother not having anyone to watch her, as Minami cited she was too busy to watch her for a week. This was when Sakura met the infamous Ami and Mami. While the twins took an instance liking to having a ‘Kohimechin’ around on top of having their Ohimechin again, Sakura did not like their boisterous and teasing natures. Quite a few times the twins caused the 6-year-old to become upset which caused Takane to reprimand the twins multiple times. Or, as the twins called it, Takane went into full-on "Okaa-san Mode".

Throughout her life her mother was adamant on not talking about her father and Sakura could sense there must have been some very bad blood between the two prior to her birth. While her mother grew an uncharacteristic cold and hostile demeanor whenever he was brought up, Sakura could recognize that, underneath it all, Takane was severely heartbroken and never pushed the subject further.

At 16-years-old Sakura was tricked by Hanako into attending an audition with her for a local production company, not knowing that Hanako signed them up to be a duet audition. Knowing this was Hanako’s dream, Sakura agreed to go through with the audition when she learned the truth. When the company expressed they only wanted to sign her on and not Hanako, Sakura stated that she wouldn’t join unless they agreed to also sign Hanako on as well. Wanting to acquire the teen due to her voice and overall visual appeal, the company agreed and signed the two. Their idol careers would then begin; though Hanako was never told about how this deal was made and that Sakura did this all for her sake.

In the beginning of her career, Sakura had absolutely no desire to be an idol and just stuck with it to keep Hanako happy and to ensure Hanako wouldn’t be released by the company if she were to leave. Eventually Sakura came to love singing and began to enjoy being on stage; she felt a rush of confidence within herself that she previously never felt before. She also loved to see the enjoyment other’s had when they heard her singing. She also loved the appraisal her mother would give her and the smile on her face during every performance.

Sometime after debuting as an idol, Takane would tell Sakura everything regarding her father, from the details of the affair all the way to her birth. With this information Sakura has become hesitant on what she wants to do in the future. She is unsure whether she wants to pursue a music career due to everything Takane has told her. She also has come to blame herself for why her mother’s career ended, despite her mother denying this multiple times.

Trivia:
•    Sakura has suffered from Ranidaphobia (fear of frogs) since she was a little girl. She also suffers from Astraphobia (fear of thunder and lightning) and will still ask if she can sleep with her mother during a storm.
•    At times she feels more like the parent than Takane and regards her as a bit of a ditz. She commonly has to remind her mother about basic things. (Ex: locking the door and taking her keys when leaving, turning off the stove, reminding her to put on her glasses, etc.)
•    Has of habit of saying ‘watakushi’, picking it up from Takane when little. She normally tries to not refer to herself in this way but when flustered or hyped up she tends to slip.
•    Sakura dislikes performing cutesy songs. She also dislikes dressing in overly cute or revealing clothing.
•    She finds her mother’s constant need to dote on her overbearing at times.
•    She has yet to meet her father or half-brother. While she wants to meet her brother, Sakura has no desire to meet her father after hearing about how poorly he treated her mother.
•    Sakura was named after her mother’s hometown of Hirosaki as they are famous for their Cherry Blossom Festival and it was Takane’s favorite time of the year when growing up.

(timeframe – 22 years after the start of im@s anime)

Name: Akiyama Yuuta (秋山有太)
Birthdate: November 4
Age: 11
Hair Color: Blue
Eye Color: Brown
Height: 148 cm
Weight: 38 kg
Seiyuu: Yamashita Daiki (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbvpWwpsv0g)
Birthplace: Shibuya, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan

Family: Akiyama [nee Kisaragi] Chihaya (mother), Akiyama Keito (father), Akiyama Hanako (sister), Kisaragi Chigusa (grandmother), Kisaragi Yuudai (grandfather), Kisaragi Yuu (uncle – deceased)

Nicknames: Yuu-chan (by Chihaya), Yuu-chii (by Hanako), Kakko (Brat - かっこ – by Sakura)

Personality Traits: Normally appears uninterested by things, rather be left alone, plays video games all the time, resentful towards his mother, has a hard time telling people how he feels

Bio: The younger of the two siblings, Yuuta is the spoiled baby of the family. He is not social in the least and eschews conversating with others if possible. Yuuta does not like the fact that his mother is so obsessed over her career most of the time. At times he feels that she loves her career more than she loves her family. He knows this isn’t the case but when confronted with her lack of presence, he can’t help but begin to feel that way all over again.

Unlike his sister, Yuuta takes strongly after his mother. He is not able to tell his mother his true feelings and normally just ignores her instead. He truly loves his mother but is frustrated that he cannot find the words to explain to her how hurt he is that she is never around when he really needs her. This leads to him just giving up on trying to sort out his feelings and he instead immerses himself in his video games to take his mind off his emotions.

Yuuta is not happy that his sister decided to become an idol to simply become a clone of their mother. He is greatly opposed to this and will berate her performances in the hopes that she will quit. Even when his sister has her revelation and rethinks her position as an idol, he is still not pleased with her being an idol at all.

Trivia:
•   Does not like the amount of attention his sister gives him and is embarrassed by it.
•   He secretly listens to his mother and sister’s music and in actuality is their biggest fan.
•   His father is worried he may become a NEET later in life if he doesn’t change his habits.
•   Has a habit of saying “Keh…” when annoyed or upset about something.
•   He openly states that he doesn’t think his sister will make it as an idol and normally tries to discourage her. He mostly does this because he doesn’t want her to turn out like their mother and become obsessed with her career if she does make it in the music business.
•   Gets along well with Ritsuko, despite the fact Ritsuko is the one that makes Chihaya’s schedule in the first place.
•   He gets along very well with Haruka and is friends with her son.
•   Given he’s just started puberty and is still a bit immature he has developed childish crushes on both Azusa and Takane due to their physiques. When he later meets Miki, he develops one on her due to the same reason.

I really like your ideas, fanfictions and OCs! ^-^ Do you plan to add more OCs and write a big story about them? I really want to read your im@s!
I only don't like what happened to Takane. :( You see, I thought that all the idols became popular and lived a happy life after the end of the anime and the games, but now my fantasies are destroyed. :( I'm afraid even to assume what happened to Makoto, Yayoi, Yukiho and Iori, not to mention the DS, ML and SideM idols... :( Please, don't make up anything bad in their future! :(
On an unrelated note, Yuuta reminds me of my little brother. 8)

I have more OCs that need bios made. A few characters are still in the development stage (having no name, no set background info, etc.).

I won't focus on CG, ML, or SideM at all. The focus will be on the 765Pro girls.

Unsure if I will create a full story or just create oneshots.

I'm not into cliche "perfect" anime endings series tend to give the characters. I'm more realistic in my writing, which tends to throw off some people expecting those anime-type endings they're used to. This is the entertainment business and things like that happen all the time. Affairs and scandals happen everyday as we see in Hollywood alone. Plus Takane is extremely naive on top of being airheaded in nature. Someone manipulative could easily use that against her; which ended up happening in this fictional setting as you saw above. (Given most of the idols are naive in the aspect of romance in general.) The only one that might seem a bit disappointing due to her decision making, but it's not horrible in any regards, is Miki's bio that I'll eventually make.

Glad you enjoyed things so far.

Birthplace: Ueno, Japan
Current Residence: Ueno, Japan

Family: unnamed mother, unnamed father, Sakamoto Ichiko (sister)

Nicknames: Susa-chan, Saka-chan

Personality Traits: Normally she is very bright and cheerful but is actually a complete otaku who loves to play extremely violent video games, very hyperactive, by far is not the smartest person around, does not know about past and present idols or the history of other production companies

Bio: Atsuko is rather childish, enjoying simple things like sweets and video games, and always seems to be bouncy and cheerful. She loves to make friends and doesn't like the idea of people being mean to each other. She may seem overly exuberant and optimistic even when insulted, but she's still quite sensitive on the inside. She speaks in a sing-songy voice. One could also describe her as flighty and almost hyperactive when not on stage. She is incredibly energetic and hardly ever stays still, doing cartwheels, handstands, or jumping around, just to keep herself occupied.

Atsuko is truthfully just really stupid. She has a curious side to her that people sometimes get annoyed with, since she has a habit of asking questions about things that should be blatantly obvious. She tries her best to keep a positive attitude at all times. Although she can get annoyed, especially if someone were to do something that could possibly hurt her friends. Atsuko is rather impulsive when it comes to taking matters into her own hands and she always wants the best for her friends. And normally her plans do not go as planned and normally make the situation(s) worse than before.

She likes polite people who call each other by “-san”, “-sama”, or “-senpai”, even though she isn’t one of those people herself. She calls people by some nickname based on their appearance when she first meets them.

Trivia:
•    Upon Sakura and Hanako joining 527Pro, it was found out that Atsuko had no idea what 765Pro was or who their idols were.
•    Atsuko’s favorite game is an extremely violent and bloody MMOG; her avatar is a catgirl wielding an axe that dices through zombies and other mythical creatures.
•    Besides playing violent video games, Atsuko also watches violent anime and reads violent manga.

Nicknames: Puchi-nee (by Atsuko), Kinpouge (Buttercup - キンポウゲ – by Yoshino), Iko-neechan (by Sakura)

Personality Traits: Mature for her age, looks up to her sister and the older idols, likes to act older than what she is, also an otaku like her sister

Bio: Wanting to follow her sister, Ichiko debuted as an idol about a year after her. Ichiko is carefree and joyful in nature yet lets off an air of maturity that doesn’t seem to fit her age. Between the two sisters, Ichiko is normally the one to act like the older sister yet this doesn’t stop her from looking up to Atsuko.

Ichiko is willing to do pretty much any job without hesitation and doesn’t need to be asked twice to do something. Much like her sister, she is also energetic even when not on stage but not on the hyperactive levels that Atsuko can reach.

She has no problems with being treated as a child and knows her to use her cuteness to her advantage. Like how some of the idols have put it, she could get away with murder with how sweet she acts.

Due to her age, her mother has asked the producer to make sure Ichiko is not overworked so she normally isn’t scheduled to have as many jobs as the older idols.

Trivia:
•   Being the two youngest idols in the group, she is best friends with Chinatsu.
•   Ichiko prefers to hang around Yoshino, Yurika, and Sakura when not with her sister.
•   For some reason Sakura is very attached to Ichiko.
•   While she is willing to do any job, Ichiko prefers to work with the older idols when possible and do more ‘grown-up’ songs.
•   Outside of being an idol, Ichiko enjoys playing soccer.
•   Ichiko enjoys watching anime, specifically mahou shoujo, and collects figurines from her favorite series.

Nicknames: Chi-chan, Natsu-chan, Hime-chan (by the other idols), Chitsu-neechan (by Sakura)

Personality Traits: Very sensitive to other people’s emotions, behaves like a typical child, loves fairytales and likes to pretend to be a princess and loves being treated like a princess, loves making friends

Bio: A young girl who made her debut shortly before Ichiko. She is better known for her cute style of dancing than her voice. She's not all that confident with her singing and prefers to be a backup performer in groups.
 
Though she is a bright student who works harder than most to maintain good grades; there is also an undeniably slow side to her that she sometimes gets, causing her to have trouble with maintaining concentration during jobs.

Chinatsu is normally more on the calm side; she's not one to barge into a conversation. She likes to go at her own pace and doesn’t like being rushed around. She's a sweet person, gets along with everyone, and cares about others. She is also a very indecisive person and doesn't know how to make up her mind on things that take a lot of thought. She tends to over think things way too much.

Trivia:
•   Being the two youngest idols in the group, she is best friends with Ichiko.
•   Her parents will only allow her to continue to be an idol as long as her grades do not slip.
•   Chinatsu loves dogs and her family owns two.
•   She loves wearing clothes that make her look like a princess.
•   Like with Ichiko, for some reason Sakura is also very attached to Chinatsu.
•   She is horrible at sports and is not athletic at all.

(timeframe – 22 years after the start of im@s anime)

Name: Kubo Haruto (久保晴登)
Birthdate: September 10
Age: 48
Hair Color: Tan
Eye Color: Hazel
Height: 177 cm
Weight: 68 kg
Birthplace: Kashima, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan
Seiyuu: Ishida Akira (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiGAYAEhv4k)
Occupation: President of KuboPro, Producer at KuboPro

Family: Kubo Hasumi (ex-wife), Kubo Masuyo (son), Shijou Takane (ex-lover), Shijou Sakura (daughter), Umeki Yumi (possible daughter), possible other children

Nicknames: Haru-kun and Anata-sama (by Takane), Kubo-sama (by Yumi)

Personality Traits: Extremely manipulative, a playboy who uses the women (normally the performers he recruits and produces) around him to get what he wants, can sweet talk his way through anything, callous and cares little for those around him, puts on a very convincing façade around others

Bio: ‘Mistake’ was the word Haruto had to bear with ever since he could remember. He grew up being told that his parents had him by mistake during their senior year in high school. Though still being responsible they sent him to a luxurious condominium in Tokyo to be taken care of by his aunt when he was around 7-years-old. Neither side of his grandparents would even take him in. They saw him as a thing that almost destroyed their children’s futures. This caused Haruto to despise his family. He would always wonder why his mother even went through with having him in the first place. Haruto never got close with anyone throughout his childhood and teenage years. He never went out of his condominium unless necessary and he never came out of his bedroom whenever his aunt would come over to make him food.

Haruto quickly became popular in high school; he was tall, good looking, and had an aloof nature that made all the girls gush over him. He went out with quite the number of girls, wanting to know what 'love' was. He never quite understood it though. None of his relationships lasted long, as the thought of commitment made him feel physically sick. Haruto would cringe every time ‘I love you’ came from their mouths. He quickly became known as a heartbreaker and soon was seen as the wild boy the girls needed to try to tame. Not being able to find love through emotion, he decided to find the meaning of love physically. Finding that he could not find love through physical means as well, Haruto would close off his heart to others permanently.

Wanting nothing but money and fame, Haruto began a production company shortly after graduating from college at 22-years-old. He found easy targets to recruit, idols that wanted to enter the entertainment industry as real performers. He found them easy to persuade and they were relatively cheap to hire and proved to earn him fast cash. Within a few years of beginning his company, he became a multi-millionaire and gained the money and fame he always wanted. There was a new desire he wanted to quench that came to the surface…a need to physically be in control of his performers. With many of his performers being ex-idols, they were extremely inexperienced with love and were easy to seduce.

He also found a new thrill…to tell the performers how much he loved them to simply just crush their hearts when they learned the truth. He enjoyed watching as their hearts broke and their faith in love destroyed. He wanted them to feel the same distorted feelings he had of love.

Eventually, Haruto’s big ticket meal came in. Recently leaving 765Pro to become something more than just an idol, Haruto by chance met Shijou Takane. Knowing how famous and well known she was as an idol, Haruto quickly saw the dollar signs, as well as an easy score, appear before him. He would go on to buy her dinner as well as sweet-talk her the entire time into joining KuboPro, promising to make her the best idol-turned-performer ever. Unfortunately the naïve, young woman believed him completely, took his offer, and unknowingly sealed her fate by joining KuboPro.

Haruto became Takane’s personal producer and normally had her scheduled for performances on TV shows and booked a number of lives as well as selling CD albums. For his own personal enjoyment he would also talk her into doing some gravure work as well. Using his charm to win her over easily, Haruto began to have an affair with Takane. Being genuinely in love with and devoted to him, Takane proved easy to manipulate, and Haruto continued the affair for nearly two years, something he previously never did before with his other affairs.

Though this affair took a turn Haruto feared could happen, Takane would end up pregnant. Hoping to force her to quit instead of needing to confront her face-to-face, Haruto began to schedule her for vigorous and dance-heavy routines that the performer was not able to easily do even when not pregnant. This ended up back firing on him as Takane proved to be stubborn and refused to abandon her career that easily, which ended up landing her in the hospital at one point when she collapsed on stage.

Becoming annoyed with the constant need to cancel her jobs and to lie to the tabloids over her health; Haruto would give her a final ultimatum. She could either have the child and end her career or simply just end the pregnancy and continue like nothing happened. With Takane being adamant on going through with the pregnancy, Haruto saw no use for her any longer and revealed his true nature to her. He completely broke Takane’s heart by telling her that he never loved her and was only with her to keep her from leaving the production company. He then went on to berate her ability to be a mother, citing her own lack of commonsense and ability to take care of even herself half the time let own a baby. He then voided her contract, effectively firing her. Though this did not come without a threat, if she were to go back on stage through any production company other than his own, Haruto promised to ruin her career permanently by releasing their affair to the public.

Though unlike the other times where he found a thrill in breaking other’s hearts, he found he felt no joy when he did so to Takane and he admittedly felt the tiniest bit of remorse afterwards, even if that remorse was short lived. This however did not stop him from continuing his tendency to have affairs with the performers he personally produces. He learned from his previous mistake with Takane and no longer carries out any affair as long as they had.  Eventually his wife would leave him, taking their son with her. Haruto is in all essence alone with just himself, his money, his company, and his many meaningless affairs. And he seems to be completely fine and content with that.

Trivia:
•   Besides Sakura, Haruto is rumored by his staff to have other children with the performers he has seduced and had affairs with. It is believed that the idol he is currently producing, Umeki Yumi, is one of his illegitimate children.
•   Even though he did not love her, Haruto did have some slight feelings for Takane due to the long lasting nature and extent of their affair.
•   His ex-wife, Hasumi, was also a performer he seduced and slept with when KuboPro first was started. Though he ended up getting blackmailed by her and was forced to marry her.
•   He is currently estranged from his son, Masuyo, who is currently a male idol at 315Pro.
•   Haruto has not spoken or seen Takane since the day he fired her and ended their affair. Because of this he has yet to meet Sakura and was never told when she was born.
•   Upon Sakura’s debut as an idol, Haruto began to keep tabs on 527Pro but would stay out of their way…at first.

Thanks to your detailed bios I'm even more convinced that you should write a big story with these characters! There is a big potential, you can explore many ideas in your story!
I feel sorry for Haruto and hope he will change for the better thanks to the idols of 527pro (and his possible daughter). I also hope Takane will come back on stage despite his treats.

Haruto is a non-redeemable character. He is who he is and nothing will ever change that.

Given Takane's age, being in her 40's, she wouldn't return on stage. She took his threat to heart all of those years ago and making a comeback at her age would be very unlikely.

(timeframe – 22 years after the start of im@s anime)

Name: Akiyama Keito (秋山啓人)
Birthdate: April 27
Age: 37
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Magenta
Height: 168 cm
Weight: 62 kg
Seiyuu: Toyonaga Toshiyuki (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKpdiHQtx-0)
Birthplace: Osaka, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan
Occupation: Publicist

Family: Akiyama [nee Kisaragi] Chihaya (wife), Akiyama Hanako (daughter), Akiyama Yuuta (son), Kisaragi Chigusa (mother-in-law), Kisaragi Yuudai (father-in-law), Kisaragi Yuu (brother-in-law – deceased), unnamed mother (deceased), unnamed father (deceased)

Nicknames: Kohou-san (広報さん – Public Relations – office nickname)

Personality Traits: Very clumsy and bumbles when speaking often, is a very patient person, very optimist, a bit self-conscious, prone to being a nervous wreck at times, known to make stupid jokes due to slip of the tongue comments

Bio: Keito grew up a very average childhood. He was an above average student, had a few good friends, and also had the support of his parents. The only tragic thing Keito can say happened to him when younger was during his teen years when his mother died unexpectedly during his first year of high school. Keito and his father grew closer during this time and were the emotional support the other needed.

Following high school, Keito’s father got him a job at a major music company a family friend of his worked at. Joining the company as a publicist, Keito moved to Shibuya to work under his father’s friend as an intern. Within a few days of joining, Keito was given his first client. This client was a songstress that had just joined the company a month prior and that songstress was Kisaragi Chihaya.

When he first met Chihaya he accidently dropped his papers everywhere and then afterwards mistakenly introduced himself as “Kato - 佳斗” (roughly translates to good-for-nothing) which caused the songstress to break out in fits of laughter.

Keito was then invited to accompany Chihaya to a CD recording, so that he could learn more about her before becoming her publicist. The moment he first heard her singing he fell head over heels for her.

With neither of them dating anyone before, him being a nervous wreck, and Chihaya being oblivious at times, the two did not start dating until a few months after meeting. This was due to Keito finally getting the nerve to ask her out, even if the way he did so caused Chihaya to burst out in laughter due to his bumbling approach.

Their relationship moved at a very slow pace in the beginning. During the time they dated they would end up breaking up twice but would wind up back together shortly after. Two years after dating each other they would end up getting married. Shortly after getting married Chihaya would end up pregnant with their first child, Hanako. Four years later Chihaya would become pregnant again with their son Yuuta.

Keito has tried multiple times over the years to get Chihaya to cut back on her work but every attempt normally ends in failure. While he has his own boat-load of work himself, Keito tries to be there for Hanako and Yuuta as much as possible to compensate for Chihaya not being there most of the time.

Trivia:
•   Keito gets along very well with his mother-in-law and considers her a second mother of sorts.
•   Keito tries to get his son to do something other than play video games all day, fearing he’ll become a NEET later in life. This normally, and comically, ends in failure.
•   Keito, while having respect for Ritsuko, has shown his discontent for her over the way she over schedules Chihaya for jobs.
•   Much to his embarrassment Azusa, Takane, and Haruka see him as being both a mother and father at times and have included him in their clique.

Yoshino is a trained actress, having been in a number of plays, TV shows, and movies when she was younger. Many believe she was given those roles due to the influence her parents have. Because of this Yoshino quit acting and became an idol, upon her sister’s suggestion, in order to make a name for herself.

Current Residence: Asaka, Japan

Family: unknown

Nicknames: Shishou (Master - 師匠 - by Yoshino), Maria-sensei (by Ichiko and Chinatsu), Pippukikku (Pipsqueak - ピップキック - by Yurika)

Personality Traits: Keeps to herself generally, doesn’t give out information unless she feels like it’s absolutely necessary, loves to help others, is a bit of a slob, can become scary when angered

Bio: Maria is a cute girl but has a completely unknown past. Maria believes it is unnecessary for others to know things about her and has only revealed her first name to the other idols. No one, except Yoshino, knows where Maria is from and why she left her home in the first place. She has only hinted that her home may not be in Japan at all.

Due to her appearance of being that of a grade-schooler, Maria is usually paired with the younger idols for jobs and she has no problem with this normally. She was originally scouted as an idol because the producer thought she was a young girl to begin with.

Maria is just a go-with-the-flow type of person though she is not one to be angered. She can become a completely different person when angry; being cited as becoming an enraged demon. Yurika somehow tends to always find a way to get Maria angry or at least annoyed with her. Because of this Yurika has become terrified of Maria and normally tries to avoid her if possible.

Maria claims she has no purpose as an idol and only became one to have fun. She claims life was too boring before she was an idol.

Trivia:
•   She is best friends with Yoshino and only gives information to her. The only person that knows her true age is Yoshino.
•   It has been noted that Maria is a very good cook but a horrible baker.
•   Maria is the only person that can tell Yurika what to do and get her to listen.
•   According to Yoshino, Maria’s apartment is a complete mess.

Birthplace: Shibuya, Japan
Current Residence: Shibuya, Japan

Family: Umeki Namika (mother), Kubo Haruto (possible father), Kubo Masuyo (possible half-brother), Shijou Sakura (possible half-sister)

Nicknames: Akuma Aidoru (Devil Idol - 悪魔アイドル – by fans and other idols)

Personality Traits: Manipulative and uses those around her to get what she wants, typically very vain, will defame others to look good, a brownnoser who will do whatever she’s told to do, loves to get attention

Bio: Yumi was seen as a burden by her mother when she was born. Her mother openly blamed her for the loss of her music career but would not disclose the identity of who her father was. Without her mother’s love or her father in her life, Yumi grew up lonely and learned to rely on herself from a very young age.

Yumi normally pushes away others who try to befriend her and is mostly a loner at her school. She does not like letting other people in and does not know how to properly maintain any type of relationship. Yumi only became an idol after her mother insisted, and gave her no choice, that she become an idol at KuboPro with Haruto as her producer. Despite her attempts to talk her mother out of it, Yumi begrudgingly accepts and becomes an idol.

Yumi has no passion as an idol and only stays one in the hopes it will please her mother. She hopes that if she does a good enough of a job as an idol that her mother will become happy with her for once and actually show her some sort of affection.

The only motivation she has to stay at KuboPro is the attention Haruto seems to give her over the other idols. She relishes in the attention he gives her and ironically sees him as a father figure in her life.

Trivia:
•   It is unknown if Yumi knows the possibility of Haruto being her father.
•   Prior to her birth, Yumi’s mother was a singer produced by Haruto. Namika and Takane did not get along when they were both at KuboPro and competed with each other for Haruto’s attention.
•   Yumi and her mother do not have a good relationship and act more like roommates than mother and daughter. Yumi desperately wants her mother to show her some type of motherly love or affection.
•   Despite the way she typically acts, Yumi does not like being alone and wishes to have at least one true friend in her life.

Birthplace: Miyazaki, Japan
Current Residence: Harajuku, Japan

Family: unnamed mother, unnamed father

Nicknames: Yuri-san (by Risako), Konno-sama (by Sakura, Chinatsu, and Ichiko)

Personality Traits: Not afraid to say what’s on her mind, is not one to make friends, has a soft-spot for kids and small animals, normally very irritable, extremely rude and condescending to other idols, likes to flaunt her body

Bio: Yurika made her debut when she was just 12-years-old. Her popularity began to wane when she moved towards a more sexy style. What she lacks in dance skills she makes up for with her powerful voice. She doesn't keep her thoughts in and speaks her mind constantly. She is not afraid of telling people exactly what she thinks of them. However she's a bit of a cold-hearted person, and doesn't care much for people in the first place, mostly due to her parents' nasty divorce when she was very young. Though she can act caring at times to her few friends but is rather awkward when doing so and it comes off more as scary than nice.

Ever since she was young, she loved the spotlight. She would pretend to be famous and jump off couches, pretending to fly through the sky. She's very careful when it comes to forming any type of relationship and takes her a very long time to warm up to people and start calling them friends. She doesn't trust a lot of people and keeps to herself most of the time.

She has a cute face and a polite manner of speech but is callous and judgmental. When at work she is dutiful and abhors mistakes. Yurika is markedly nicer towards producers than her fellow idols. She prefers to deal with demure, competent, or at least quiet people and is easily irritated by the loud, dramatic or flamboyant. At times she can be quite cruel and spiteful but it is usually hidden behind a veneer of cold efficiency. For someone who dresses like a doll, she gets a real kick out of intimidating people. Yurika is also very stubborn and refuses to believe any way that isn't her well, thought-out articulated way, is right. She is a major rock idol who's been extremely popular since her debut at 527Pro.

Trivia:
•   Yurika has been stated to have the strongest and most durable voice at 527Pro.
•   Yurika claims she left the other agencies because they simply “could not handle such talent like her”. In actually she was kicked out of the agencies for her terrible attitude.
•   She hates working in units and it took months for her to finally work with Risako.
•   Risako is the only idol Yurika is friends with at 527Pro. Yurika tolerates Sakura, Chinatsu, and Ichiko but considers none of them as friends.
•   Yurika is terrified of Maria and will listen to whatever she tells her to do.
•   Yurika mutually loathes Yoshino and refuses to work with her. They always fight whenever scheduled together for work and always need to be kept separated.

Personality Traits: Friendly and upbeat normally, is quite loud and boisterous, overly confident most of the time, extremely gullible, oddly intelligent in random subjects, very competitive

Bio: Risako is a very confident person, to the point of overconfidence 99.9% of the time. At times she can be rather cocky and self-minded without realizing it. She is very energetic when it comes to competing with others and does not take losing well. She speaks in a jolly nature and can unintentionally come off as arrogant because of this as some think she’s doing this mockingly. She has a good sense of humor and likes to crack jokes…even if they are the worst ones anyone has ever heard.

Risako has a knack for accurately judging people’s character and can sense whether a person is truly good or bad deep down. Despite her good intuition with judging character, Risako can be easily persuaded by others due to her easily believing everything she hears.

Risako does not like to talk about her father and will skirt around any conversation involving him. He was sick for many years, before Risako was even born. Both she and her mother knew he would eventually die from his illness. From a very young age she accepted this and believes she has come to terms with his death, despite the very opposite to be true.

Trivia:
•   Even though it took a while for them to get along initially, Risako is the only person at 527Pro that Yurika is friends with.
•   Risako is known to easily believe the most outrageous and unbelievable lies. Hiromi normally, and quite easily, pranks her daily.
•   She is terrified of most animals but loves reptiles and owns a python that previously was owned by her father before he passed away.
•   Risako is not allowed over Sakura’s home after the incident she accidentally caused by bringing her pet snake with her one time.
•   Her father died when she was 11-years-old from a congenital heart condition. He had gotten Pii-chan (the python) three years prior to his death.
•   Her mother only recently got remarried. She gets along very well with her stepfather and stepsister.

Bio: Despite her more carefree nature, Hiromi is a consummate professional and a natural-born leader from taking charge of her unruly brothers. Her methodical approach to planning makes her an excellent planner though she isn't immune to the occasional bouts of passion that ruin her own plans.

Growing up with two older brothers and a younger brother, Hiromi is not a stranger to playing rough and is known to beat up her brothers when they used to play fight as children. This has caused her brothers to fear her which she is oblivious of but others immediately pick up on. Unfortunately, Hiromi does not realize just how strong she is at times and has unintentionally injures the other idols: by high-fiving too hard, slapping them on the back, or bear hugging them.

She ended up being scouted when she was attending a sporting event and thought one of the producers was a college recruiter. She ended up approaching the producer and the producer claims she immediately saw the underlying sparkle that made an idol within Hiromi.

Trivia:
•   Is the de facto leader of Kanamagari.
•   Despite being the oldest in Kanamagari, Hiromi is commonly mistaken to be the youngest due to her petite size.
•   Currently enrolled in college for nursing.
•   Knows how to wrestle from playing with her older brothers when younger and is noted to be quite strong for her size.
•   A sports fanatic and played multiple sports while in school.
•   Out of all of the girls, Hiromi has been a part of 527PRO for the longest; being there for nearly 4 years and is still being produced by the same producer that scouted her.

Outside of being a producer, Maeko is also a devoted wife. The idols commonly suggest that her husband is imaginary as none of them, except Hiromi, have ever met him.

Name: Shijou Minami (四条南実)
Birthdate: July 23

Nicknames: Mina-nee (Takane’s childhood nickname for her)

Minami is younger than Takane, right? I can understand if this was the latter's deliberate mistake though.

No, it is deliberate. It's Takane just being Takane.

I have a head canon that while Takane acts dignified and polite most of the time; while she's around her sister she acts more outright childish. Despite being the oldest she refers to her sister as "Mina-nee" or "Mina-neechan" instead of "imouto" or just plain "Minami/Minami-chan". The only time she 'correctly' refers to her is when she calls her either by the less frequent nicknames "Mina-chan" or "Mimi-chan" and doesn't use the "-neechan" honorific at all.

It's more a play on the fact that Minami acts like the big sister and is the most mature out of the two of them.


The same is with Sakura when she refers to Ichiko as "Iko-neechan" and Chinatsu as "Chitsu-neechan". Sakura has a lot of her mother's speaking quirks and doesn't see a problem with referring to younger people as "-neechan".

Atsuko refers to her sister, Ichiko, as "Puchi-nee" simply because she thinks it sounds adorable otherwise she just calls her Ichiko-chan or just plain Ichiko.

Personally I found that sounds more like something Puchimas Takane would do.

That got me thinking; imagine the sisters doing some comical skits amidst the dramatic turn of events. How's that for a fanfic inspiration?

Well Puchimas is just the personalities of the idols multiplied by 5. So Takane is a childish goofball at heart. She just masks it very well behind an air of elegance. This is the person after all that loves to play children's games and watch shows geared towards toddlers and very young children.

That sorta kinda is the plan. lol  It would mostly revolve around Minami trying to live with and tolerate Takane and her quirkiness 24/7. But then Takane does something mature and sensible that reminds Minami about the fact that Takane is the older sister and can be a responsible and dependable adult.

I just write things in bits and pieces. Eventually I'll get something finished. I'm not in too big of a hurry to start and finish anything for this.

That would be great. Godspeed. After a rough calculation of the progress rate, we'll see how this turns out until next year.

(timeframe – 22 years after the start of im@s anime)

Name: Tamashiro Shuichi (玉城修一)
Birthday: March 3
Age: 35
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Blue
Height: 175 cm
Weight: 66 kg
Affiliation: 527Pro
Seiyuu: Miki Shinichiro
 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d-brYjJA-E)Birthplace: Okinawa, Japan
Current Residence: Tokyo, Japan
Occupation: Producer

Family: unknown

Nicknames: Producer-san, Jaaku (Jerk - ジャーク - by Yoshino and Yurika)

Personality Traits: Ambitious, hardworking, can be rather narcissistic, very distant with others, comes off as callous when speaking

Bio: Shuichi is a strict person, he tends to be distant with his peers but this is due to his workaholic behavior and status as a top producer. He is very much dedicated to his job and sometimes neglects his social life. His coworkers often remind him by inviting him to get a drink with them, which most of the time he declines. He is very astute and an observer of human behavior and an excellent producer because he relies on data more than intuition. He comes off as somewhat rigid when it comes to his work. He doesn’t mind the company of others, but he also doesn’t mind solitude, and even though he comes off as distant, he’s not completely devoid of emotion and is able to express happiness very rarely. He is somewhat dense when it comes to love, but isn’t so oblivious that he doesn’t figure it out eventually.

Despite the occupation he chose for himself Shuichi appears neither helpful nor interested in any other fate than his own at the first glance. He stubbornly works his way towards his goals, even though sometimes he might end up hurting others to achieve these; hardly ever on purpose, however.

He takes his actions into account and knows others may perceive him as cold and distant, even as selfish and he does not mind being referred to as such. People need his skills and not a friendly attitude, as he has stated. He accepted his reputation of a ‘coldhearted producer’ and may seem surprised and distrustful when people happen to see him in a different light.

In fact Shuichi is an extremely distrustful person, hardly ever allowing himself to grow attached to others, more or less consciously pushing them away to avoid the forming of bonds. Even without his distant attitude he isn’t exactly the easiest individual to be around, especially due to how blunt he can be and how intrusive his questions might become when searching for an answer.

Trivia:
•   Despite being born in Okinawa, Shuichi doesn’t speak with a dialect as he moved away when he was still very young though he has a slightly tanner complexion than the other characters.
•   If it came between furthering his career or his idols’ careers, he will always choose himself first.
•   Shuichi does not like producing idols, feeling that it is beneath him. His main goal is to someday work at a major production company and produce actual singers and performers.
•   Shuichi produces the idols in the units Eko Ojo (Hanako and Yoshino) and Akuma no Tsume (Yurika - sans Risako as she is produced by Maeko).

Name: Matsumoto Shinjiro (松元伸次郎)
Birthday: July 24
Age: 21
Hair Color: Chestnut
Eye Color: Green
Height: 164 cm
Weight: 54 kg
Affiliation: 527Pro
Seiyuu: Irino Miyu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DildTtN3oDY)
Birthplace: Towada, Japan
Current Residence: Saitama, Japan
Occupation: Producer

Family: unnamed parents, unnamed younger sister, unnamed younger brother

Nicknames: Otouto-chan (little brother - mockingly by Maria, Yoshino, and Yurika), ProPro-san (by some of the idols), Shin-kun (by Maeko), Onii-san (by Chinatsu and Ichiko)

Personality Traits: A heart of gold, gentle, very professional despite his young age, very pure/unperverted around the idols, prone to making rash decisions, can be a bit of a crybaby

Bio: A recent college graduate majoring in accounting, Shinjiro applied for a job at 527Pro in the hopes of working there in their accounting department. Due to a shortage in producers in their idol division, Shinjiro was talked into a job as a producer rather than an accountant.

Even though it is hardly the job he initially wanted, Shinjiro is a hard worker who is determined to prove himself as a rookie producer. Despite his hard worker, he is looked down upon by other producers in other production companies. Even other companies’ idols do not take him seriously. The only people that seem to take him seriously at all at 527Pro are fellow producer Nashio Maeko and the company president Yamada Tetsu.

Trivia:
•   Due to his young age and shorter stature, Shinjiro is commonly mistaken as a high school student and subsequently thought to be a stalker of the idols rather than their producer.
•   Yoshino and Yurika have absolutely no respect for Shinjiro and disregard him as a producer; even Maria has shown a borderline disrespectful attitude towards him.
•   Shinjiro is the producer for the idols in the units: Hoshizora (Maria, Chinatsu, and Ichiko) and Bebii JUMP (Atsuko and Ichiko - already listed). He is also the producer (when they are available) of the unit ☆pop (Hanako and Sakura).
•   He is terrified of heights and he cannot swim.

Personality Traits: Rather energetic and always on the go, has a passion for acting, acts like a big brother to everyone, can be overly affectionate, easy to get along with

Bio: Generally a pretty chill guy but loves to be loud on stage. He's pretty friendly and will make an effort to talk to most of his fans one on one if he can tell they're really interested. Growing up, Masuyo was taught to play many instruments and was fairly proficient in playing most of them. Though his real passion was in acting despite his father wanting him to go into a music career and forcing him to learn instruments starting at a very young age.

At twelve-years-old Masuyo’s mother, becoming fed up with Haruto’s behavior once and for all, left him and took their son with her. He would see his father on and off over the years and eventually Haruto cut off connect with him. Masuyo has grown resentful of his father literally walking out of his life and has made it his goal to take down his father’s company.

He tends to not overreact to anything and does his best to keep his composure. The only way to get him to really freak out is to show him anything gory or nauseating. He tries to make as many friends as he can to help fight any loneliness that he feels. Usually he can be found with a smile on his face.

Trivia:
•   Masuyo knows of his younger sister Sakura and the possibility of Yumi also being his younger sister. He is also aware of his father’s many affairs, remembering each woman he was with, and the possibility of other siblings.
•   He is currently estranged from his father but, like his father, he has kept tabs on Sakura once she debuted as an idol and began to do the same with Yumi.
•   Masuyo’s desire to become an idol came from him wanting to take down his father’s company.
•   Despite being an idol, he normally dabbles more into acting and voice acting jobs rather than music related ones.
•   The only instrument Masuyo will still play, if asked to, is the guitar and he owns one.
