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.

APPEARANCE

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.

PERSONALITY

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.[1]

However, contrary to Akane’s bright and positive personality, he has deep feelings of inferiority to the members of Thrive. Those complex feelings stem from the time Thrive was formed, dating back to the Bambi era. Initially the group members consisted of Goshi, Yuta, Kento and Akane. However, in the end Thrive debuted without Akane.[2]

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.

HISTORY
Akane's mother passed away early and he was raised by his grandfather who owns a dojo.[2] 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 and joined Bambi.[3][4]

Judo is an important part of Akane's character as both his main story chapter[4] and one of his cards[5] cover this aspect.

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.[6][7]

BAMBI ERA

RELATIONSHIPS

Insert Text here.

Akane and Miroku are childhood friends. They met roughly 10 years ago, when they were both 8 and 6 years old respectively. Miroku was brought to the Akane's grandfather's Dojo by his mother to have a look around. At that time, Miroku was a shy preschooler and had pure white skin. Akane thought he looked like a fairy and took an interest in him, wanting to know more about him. Akane was very happy when Miroku smiled for the first time.[2] They both attended Akane's grandfather's Dojo.[8]

As they naturally came to spend more time together, one day while watching TV, they happened to see a program with children from Bambi Project and became interested. Despite so, Miroku couldn't imagine becoming an idol. However, Akane wanted to try it out and convinced Miroku to audition with him. [2] Hence the two of them auditioned and entered Bambi together.[9] At the beginning, the two didn't live in the dorms with the other children and commuted from Shizuoka to Tokyo via Shinkansen or car for lessons.[2] Because they joined Bambi together, they had been each other's motivation and inspiration in keeping their dream as an idol.[2]

But both carry around a deep regret in relation to the other, each from a different moment during the Bambi era. In Miroku’s case it was when Thrive was to debut with Akane as part of the initial line-up. However, in the end the group debuted without Akane. Even though Miroku knew how hurt Akane was by this decision and needed words of comfort from him, he somehow felt relieved. It meant that they wouldn't be separated, a fear that grew stronger the more Thrive’s debut and the rumours around its members became a topic. Akane on the other hand felt inferior and lacking in skills when their president decided to debut Akane with KiLLER KiNG instead. It meant for him that he wasn’t and never will be good enough. No matter how strong his efforts are, he never will catch up with Thrive or even surpass them. This in turn resulted in Akane unconsciously thinking that KiLLER KiNG can’t make it to the top with their new song.[2]

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. [10]

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.[11]

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. [12] 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. [13][14] 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.[15]

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.[16]

Goshi is viewed in high regards as a much-respected musician among his juniors, especially the twins have a special attachment to him – as the ones who have personal connections to the English language. Yuduki and Haruhi tend to cling to and tease Goshi, often persuading him to do activities together as a group with their puppy eyes. Haruhi dreams of going on a car ride with Goshi when he obtained his driver's license or drink his first alcohol with Goshi when he legally becomes an adult. Yuduki also sees him as a great mentor who gives valuable advice for the future as a music artist and his personal growth [17].

Akane and Goshi's connection goes back to the Bambi era where the former was planned to debut with THRIVE but debuted with KiLLER KiNG instead. Even though this decision was made to fully maximize Akane's potential in a group that suits him better, he has ever since carried a strong inferior complex towards THRIVE. So while he is happy with KiLLER KiNG there's always a hint of self-doubt deep down his heart[2][18].

Eisuke describes KiLLER KiNG as "cute and cool" [19].

The two groups didn't have much contact with each other yet, but the twins were worried when they watched Ultras' first, and unauthorized, live stream under GANDARA Music in which they announced their company debut.
