(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
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).

@Hime Idol

 :D Thank you so much for the videos! They're amazing! <3

Also, I'm sorry to hear that a bunch of ungrateful brats/trolls attacked you regarding these requests. :-( It's such a shame! You don't deserve it at all.

In any case, you can clear the MEGA files for more space.

By the way, I do have a question, would making a request on 7/5/17 fall within the timeframe?

Thankies!

Yes since technically your next request date would be 6/27 (server time).

Characters / Re: Takane Shijou: Asperger's syndrome?
« on: June 15, 2017, 04:41:25 PM »
I didn't read the whole post, but saying Takane is "trying to keep up the "Ohime-sama" persona she has created for herself" is just plain wrong to start with. One of the most important things about Takane is her being honest and genuine aswell as hating to act against her own nature, which is mentioned in the games and also apparent for example through her love for a simple food like ramen, which doesn't fit that persona at all if she were trying to create one.

The Ohime-sama persona idea comes from iDOLM@STER SP where it is hinted that Takane is playing along with the whole Ohime-sama thing. But it is unknown how much of Takane's canon from SP was carried over once im@s2 was created. Takane is a very honest and genuine person but she is also a very playful person. If the canon of SP were to be carried over than it is very possible that she is playing along with the Ohime-sama stuff simply because she enjoys it and it fits with her personality.....she is a rich girl after all and being an Ohime-sama would easily fit with that. (I don't want to sound or come off as rude but you really should have read the whole post as that was explained.)

But it is also insinuated that Takane's family is forcing her to be someone she doesn't want to be and that they have very high expectations and that they don't necessarily let her be her own person. Being the Ohime-sama of the group is someone she wants to be and wasn't forced into doing. I feel that prior to being an idol that Takane wasn't referred to as "Ohime-sama" or "Ohime-chin" and that began once she became an idol and became known as the Silver Queen. And instead of calling her "Ouhi-sama" (王妃 - Queen) the other idols simplified it to "Ohime-sama/Ohime-chin" instead.

Takane didn't really need to create much of the Ohime-sama persona as she already acted like a princess/royalty. She simply just keeps up appearances and one of her more "commoner" traits is loving to eat simpler food such as ramen.....even though she's a human garbage disposal when it comes to eating.

« on: June 14, 2017, 07:31:03 PM »
Takane is a rather.....unique individual. As Verita V. has already brought up, Takane did live a very sheltered up bringing in a very rich household. So she's probably not 100% sure how to interact with others her age as well as she should. (bringing up the nature vs nurture debate)

Also you cannot go by just the anime in its representation of Takane as the anime did little to develop any of the characters whose names weren't Haruka, Miki, or Chihaya.

Takane is a regal person trying to keep up the "Ohime-sama" persona she has created for herself. She's always trying to act dignified....even if she is a goofball at heart....and that can come off as behaving weirdly/awkwardly with others. She is also airheaded and things tend to go over her head.

If you also look at the various manga series she is also close with Hibiki (paired as being best friends in most manga adaptions) and Chihaya (as they are in a unit Kachou Fuugetsu in The world is all one!!). Other than the twins always wanting to be near their "Ohime-chin" Takane interacts with the other idols just as much and seems to get along with everyone due to her easygoing and lighthearted nature.

I would say Takane is closest with Hibiki, Futami twins, Chihaya, Yukiho, Azusa, and Yayoi due to the interactions she has with them.

Also Takane is book smart.....not street smart....so that may have a bit to do with it.


Some copy and paste from the Takane thread on the other server I'm on. Basically my whole theory on Takane:

There is question to Takane being pressured by her family to be something......or well someone they are trying to mold her to be.

"You have to assume that her family (Takane's) has some kind of plan set for her with very high expectations....why would you want your kid to speak multiple languages unless you have something planned for them? If you take the ridiculous assassin plot (from im@s2) and make it into something believable. Most like what happened was: her adoptive parents have her betrothed to the son of another rich family. Parents want Takane to finally just grow up, quit the idol nonsense, and marry the guy already. Takane, being her unconventional and stubborn self, most likely wouldn't be willing to roll with this and created some kind of elaborate story to get the Producer to help her perhaps get out of the engagement somehow. The "assassins" sent to get her are just her family's workers trying to come talk her into coming home and go through with the marriage like a good girl."

Like her knowing all the Latin languages and German. Most likely her adopted parents more or less forced her into learning them whether she wanted to or not. I assume they are trying to mold the perfect daughter out of the girl they adopted.

"It seems more like her rich parents most likely set her up for that. They set weird restrictions and stuff on her at times. Wouldn't be surprising if they forced her to."
"Would make sense if they forced her to do things she didn't want to do. She's never mentioned to ever go back home and visit. She only talks to her butler occasionally. She most likely became an idol to get away from her family and uses the whole "everything is a secret" to erase that part of her life for the time being."
"She wants to separate that old part of her life with her new life as an idol.

More or less she's running from her past and doesn't want to let anyone onto her past."

Then there's the sister we still haven't met or was given a name yet.
"Though we never heard about her sister and why they don't speak.
Unless the parents somewhat gave up on Takane and moved their plans onto her.
Or her sister is the good girl and obeys her parents 100%. To not disrespect her parents, like her older sister did, she ignores Takane as well.
Though it begs to wonder why would she move so far away (from wherever she's from) to move near Tokyo (I'm assuming for im@s location) to join 765Pro?
She could just as easily be an idol in her home town and defy her parents right to their faces.
Though that would be highly disrespectful and she's a very polite person so...."
I think of it more she's trying to defy her parents and trying to be her own person for once.
Takane seems to be a person set up by her parents to become someone she might necessarily doesn't want to become.....most likely the next CEO of her adopted father's company.
Highly educated, multilingual.....points to them grooming her to take over.
She probably has such a close relationship with her butler because he may have been the only one that never tried to force her to be something that she isn't.
Any language under the Latin language (as well as German) she's listed as being fluent in them.
Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Romanian. But she's admitted horrible at English.
Whether that covers other smaller languages such as Tuscan or Sicilian is unknown but it's assumed since they said ALL that they mean ALL.
"German from her first vision so we're assuming her being fluent in German was carried over.
I assume that she was born in Japan. Shortly after her sister was born her parents died. Shijou family (most likely friends of her parents - maybe business partners?) adopted the two girls. Eventually they move to Germany due to their father's work and she lives there for most of her childhood/early teen years. Why she may consider the "old capital" (Berlin - assuming it's Germany) to be her hometown. Moves back to Japan probably around 12-14 y/o. Years later joins 765PRO.
Plausible at least but who knows if/when we ever get a proper backstory."
She's stated as not having any real memories of her birth parents so I'm assuming she must have been around 2-3 y/o when her sister was born and her mother died (assuming at childbirth or shortly after) and her father died as well shortly after.
Though my head-canon story has it that her mother died during childbirth and her father became very ill shortly after (Takane being around 2 y/o at this point and not remembering either of them). He asked the Shijou family (former business partners) to take in his two daughters until he was well again. He ends up never getting well again and dies leaving the girls orphaned and the Shijou family adopts them.
Well if you go by first vision her adopted mother could have died, adopted father was too busy to take care of her. Butler took care of her mostly. Adoptive father eventually dies and leaves her alone once again.
Which would explain why she hates being alone.

Even Kuroi refers to Takane as a Princess.
He mentions real Princess from a ruined country but it could all be a lie.
"politically powerful Shijou family" meaning rich as holy fuck Shijou family
"Seems like there are complicated issues behind Takane's decision to become an idol."
"I can't afford to lose" attitude
"Someone who needs the help of others isn't fit to hold a position of power!
A ruler must always remain isolated and alone."
ceo = ruler
"She may be deluded or just playing along, but she sure knows how to act like royalty."
I think that whole princess thing is just a fun thing Takane likes to play along with.
Takane doesn't like Kuroi much, simply just thankful that he made her debut possible, but that's about it.
"She's using me for her own goals as well."
Parents want Takane to learn how to survive on her own and hold her own in the real world. Given her love and passion for music they send her off to be an idol. They contact and entrust Takane's debut with Kuroi I'm guessing since 961PRO is a pretty well known agency. Idol world is cut throat just like the business world. They were probably hoping she'd learn to gain some backbone and some deceptive traits to get herself through.
Even Kuroi doesn't believe the BS princess story Takane gave him.
"Truth be told, I don't believe it. It's just too big of a story."
"However, Takane-chan believes it and is trying to become a top idol."
So my theory of her using that whole princess and mysterious past thing may be right on point with her.
She's using that as a (awfully made) cover story.
She doesn't want people to know her real past since she's probably running from her past.
She wants to leave her past behind her and start anew. But fucking hell she made up an awful story that a 5 y/o would make.
She's definitely from an extremely rich family.
Probably a sheltered life so she couldn't think of anything else and went with a princess story.
Though whether that canon from SP is carried over is unknown. Since second vision wiped that stuff starting with im@s2.
Even in the anime and manga series she mentions her butler. So her butler being a major piece of her growing up was never scrapped at least.

Back to the assassination plot:
"Especially since some of the assassin were sent by her younger sister.....so yeah probably her family's workers trying to talk her into coming home."
You have to remember Takane is a stubborn person and if she doesn't want to do something...good luck with getting her to do it.
But that's taking multiple canon sources to make a plausible Takane backstory.
Because there is the fact that while Takane is highly intelligent.....she is also an absolute moron.
And she's shown amazing lapses of judgement - most likely since she never really had to think for herself before if her family is/was controlling her life up until the point she became an idol.

But again these are assumptions we have to make based off of what we know about her backstory and personality.


Sorry if the copy-and-paste was long and a bit disjointed (as the replies and other comments were removed) so some things may seem a bit out of context.

One question though; Why would Minami comment on Takane's diet?
Canonically speaking I haven't found one person, not even the producer that ever commented about it, probably since most people in 765pro have observed that Takane doesn't gain weight despite her eating habits. I figured someone as observant and calculating as Minami would take note of that too.
Or does it has something to do with pregnancy? Beats me.

Minami is just worried that Takane isn't eating as healthy as she should. And the whole reason why Minami is there is to look after Takane and to make sure she's taking care of herself properly......which is what Takane had originally asked of her. (Minami just took it a step further by insisting that she move in with her.)

Despite not always getting along with her sister, Minami still loves her. They're the only blood relatives each other has. Minami is overall just worried about her health since Takane acts like a human garbage disposal.

And Minami technically never mentioned Takane's overall diet. She just mentioned to her that she snacked on a lot of fatty foods; she just interpreted that the wrong way.

I did have most of this one finished. Just had to tweak things here and there. Same goes for other stuff I have partially written.

Title: Mood Swings
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minami nervously walked backwards as her sister angrily stomped towards her. Feeling her back press up against the wall, Minami felt an involuntary shudder run down her spine.

To say Minami was completely done with Takane's pregnancy was an understatement. She couldn't wait for the baby to just be born already and for the madness to finally end. The older woman was always a quirky individual in her own way. She always had habits that annoyed Minami but those habits seemed to evolve to a point where Minami could no longer tolerate them as easily. Now that Takane was pregnant, her hormones were all over the place and it was as though Minami was dealing with a different person entirely. Takane proved to be extremely demanding, emotional, overly energetic, emotional, very whiny, emotional, and eternally starving in the most dramatic of ways. She was also emotional. Very emotional.

And though Minami had educated herself and knew what to expect from the pregnancy, she would never have been able to anticipate just how terrible Takane's rampant mood swings would end up being.

Until now there had only seemed to be two degrees to Takane's hormone-fueled mood swings. The first was a euphoric mood Takane would get. She would act like the happiest person on the face of the earth. The second was an extremely depressed mood. Takane wouldn't even get out of bed and would go into episodes of sobbing. Minami would gladly take either of them over this enraged, berserker mood that had just surfaced.

Needless to say, it was incredibly difficult to keep up with her moods on most days.

Two months. Minami told herself. Only two months and this madness will be over.

"How dare you criticize my weight! What exactly did you think was going to happen?" Takane seethingly asked as she was mere centimeters apart from her sister.

Besides the random mood swings, Minami never saw her sister without food on her...normally junk food. Unfortunately, Minami decided to comment on this fact and suggested that her sister watch what she ate; bringing up the fact that she mostly ate fatty foods. This turned out to be a big mistake on her part.

"That's not what I meant at all. Nee-san, I was just simply suggesting that you should think about what you’re putting in your mouth. You mostly eat junk. Remember you're the one who wanted me to watch over you in the first place."

Takane took a step back but continued to glare at her younger sister. “Are you saying that I’m incapable of taking care of myself? I am not some invalid that cannot care for herself. I know what to eat and what not to eat. Sure I give in every once in a while to cravings but that is beside the point.”

Minami sighed. “Nee-san you’re blowing this out of portion.”

“So now I’m being irrational?” Takane angrily asked her.

“I didn’t say that either,” Minami muttered as she then groaned in frustration. Though Minami couldn’t blame her entirely for lashing out. She was certain that Takane had a lot of pent up anger in her; especially due to all of the problems Takane had caused for herself in the past few years that led to this. And despite everything he had done to her, Minami never once heard Takane talk badly of Haruto. Takane was probably more frustrated with herself than anyone else at this point. With no one else to take out her building frustration out on, Minami became the proverbial punching bag for her verbal assault.

Sighing once again, Minami moved before Takane could protest and hugged her. She felt her sister tense up. “Ne-neesan, calm down. Please?”

That seemed to do the trick as Takane’s body relaxed, her anger instantly washing away. "I'm sorry Mina-nee. I don't know what came over me.” Minami then felt Takane’s arms wrap around her as she began crying.

“Geez, you really are a big crybaby. You know that Takane?”

“I am not!” She whined.

“You are too,” Minami retorted as her sister finally let go of her. She then heard a rumbling sound. “How are you hungry? You just ate fifteen minutes ago!”

Takane chuckled. “That was only a snack.”

“Snack?” Minami repeated. “That was an entire meal if not more.”

“For you maybe.” Takane pouted as she crossed her arms over her chest. “I’d like to see you go through this.”

“I’ll pass,” Minami stated. “Hey, I heard there’s a new restaurant that opened. It has a buffet, if you want do you-”

“Let’s go,” Takane stated as she stood by the front door with her coat already on.

“How did you get there so fast?” Minami questioned her as Takane opened the door.

“That does not matter. Let’s go,” Takane replied as she walked out with pure determination exuding from her.

Minami sighed. “I think I liked it better when you were angry.”

I believe that the imas fandom can do without the 2011 anime.
To this day I still hate how that anime pigeonholed every idols' personalities and only put 3 of them onto spotlight.
I would've preferred the anime if they made it in Omnibus style like Amagami; 4 episodes centered on each heroine, that which I call fairness.

In all fairness that's how I got into iDOLM@STER. Without the anime I wouldn't be here.
