|“||When I'm with you, Princess, my heart gets warm and my mind is at rest, just like when you bask in the sun! But, even though I feel at ease my heart beats so fast, too! Hmmmm~ Why is that? I'm not quite sure, but it'd make me happy if you felt the same. Just saying! Eheh~||”|
The leader of the junior group, KiLLER KiNG. Akane always shows great willpower and is determined to make their fans happy.
Together with Ryuji, he is one of the shortest members of B-PROJECT with a height of 165cm. Though for someone with a short height he has a strong build. He's even stronger than some of the taller BPro members.
Akane has short, wavy orange hair. His straight bangs are clipped back most of the time. A part of the bangs falls to each side of his face. His eyes are orange with a tint of blue. In addition, unlike his unit members, Akane has a slightly darker complexion.
He often wears hoodies and generally dresses sportive.
Akane's gentle and friendly manner makes it easy for strangers and friends alike to talk to him. He owns an unrivaled enthusiasm that often affects his unit members as his wish to see everyone smile is very strong. Whenever there is a problem he is one of the first to offer help. Though he appears to be talkative, he does not like long talks as he is not good with them.
Furthermore, Akane does not like to be called 'short' or 'shorty'. It is obvious that he developed a small complex. Therefore he can become quite angry when being teased about his height.
|Akane grew up with his grandpa who owns a dojo. There he met Miroku. Both practiced judo together. Since then he kept going and became a master in judo. Both also took the audition together.
His parents have yet to be mentioned.
Back then when THRIVE debuted, Akane was to be a member as well. But their producer, Daikoku Shuuji, was against it. In his opinion, Akane did not fit into THRIVE. Although he was downhearted after the decision, he congratulated his colleagues on the debut. That incident caused another inferior complex in Akane: Not doing enough, not being good enough. That is why he always gives his best.
Akane and Miroku are childhood friends. They both attended Akane's grandfather's Dojo. The two of them auditioned and entered Bambi together. They are close enough that Akane knows every part of Miroku's body, including the 17 moles he has, however he isn't sure how many he has now. 
During their trainee days (Bambi), the two of them often had fights in the ramen shop over extra noodle servings. One time Yuta was sitting between them, and noted that every time Akane orders an extra serving of noodles, Miroku would increase his muscle training regime. This made Akane very angry.
Akane has been on friendly terms with Tsubasa from the beginning. She finds it easy to talk to him because of his open nature. The same goes for Akane who feels comfortable when she is around.
Even though he is the oldest of KiLLER KiNG and acts mature, he often behaves child-like in her presence, a proof of how he feels at ease with her. In relation to the aforementioned, Akane sometimes tends to be a bit more reckless to appear cool in front of her.  He easily blushes and becomes shy when complimented by Tsubasa. As much as she cares for Akane’s well-being, so does he for her. In his SSR Surprise he is worried that she doesn’t eat properly due to her stressful schedule. So he wants to prepare her favourite dishes. In that manner, he often buys her small gifts as a thank you for her constant support.  Akane also likes to consult with her about difficult things or thinks of her often times, for example during New Year’s where he wished Tsubasa went with KiLLER KiNG to the shrine visit and has her in mind when they talk about a person that takes good care of people.
There have been small hints that he has a crush on her, albeit unconsciously. They are scattered throughout his cards, with his SSR BIRTHDAY SWEETS being the strongest indicator so far. The card shows that Tsubasa holds a special place in his heart apart from his friends. Because of work she was not able to attend his birthday party. Because of this Akane was all the more happier when she visited him the next day and could have his second party, just with the two of them.
