As the spoilers ban has been lifted, any new information from B-PROJECT Ryusei*Fantasia will be added in the near future.
We ask for your patience and understanding. Thank you!

I'll give my all. Sorry that I have such blazing eyes even though I'm an Idol. When there are unit lessons, don't be an obstacle. I'm not joking. I won't cooperate either. You should try to match my pace instead.

In the music world Goshi is considered to be a great talent. He lived overseas for some time in the past to hone his music skills. Therefore he is fluent in English.

APPEARANCE

Goshi's black hair is short at the front and longer in the back. His bangs are parted to the left side. He has red snake eyes (eyes with visible white between the iris and the lower eyelid)[1]. He generally prefers black clothing.

Both in the game and anime, he wears either a black top or in addition a black leather jacket with jeans. Also, he almost always wears a necklace or/and a wristband as accessories. 

PERSONALITY

Goshi most of the time can be seen with a frown. His rough attitude often hides his true feelings. But deep down he is kind and helpful.

Even though Goshi works as an idol he stated to not like being one. The reason lies mainly in the activities of idols that he does not always enjoy doing. Despite this issue, he is very passionate about music and would go to great lengths for it. Goshi is able to compose music ad-lib. He also has absolute pitch[2].

He is often called a workaholic. Once taken a job, he gives his best to succeed. Nevertheless, Goshi is quite stubborn as well. He clearly states his opinion, sometimes regardless of what his band mates or people he works with think.

Rather than working in a group, he prefers to work on his own. He tends to lock himself up in the basement to play guitar[3].

HISTORY
Ryusei*Fantasia:[4]

Goshi was born in the United States. And even though his parents are divorced, it's implied that they never swore in front of him for the sake of winning (the custody battle).

Four to five years ago, he was studying abroad in his native country, the US, to expose himself more to the world of music. His time there was fulfilling: lessons everyday, attend live concerts and listen to music. However, as his hunger for music grew, he wanted to experience every possible form of music. For this reason he started to go to any place that was acessable to him. As someone with an Asian background, he looked younger than the people there, so it wasn’t easy for him to enter places such as nightclubs. He got used to this kind of lifestyle after some time.

One day, he went to a nightclub that happened to serve alcohol and was also a well-known trading place for drugs. Goshi managed to gain access to the club by asking a friend to forge a fake ID for him. Unfortunately, he was caught by the police during a police raid. Luckily for him, the police officers realized that he isn't involved in the shady doings and didn't arrest him. Instead, they scolded him for the fake ID and going out at night.

During that time, when Shuuji went to the US to see how Goshi was doing, he was contacted by Goshi's host mother about the situation and went to pick him up at the police station. Shuuji's long lecture lasted until the next morning. As a consequence of this incident, Shuuji cut his study (which was supposed to be until September) short and made him return to Japan in Spring. Back in Japan, Kento and Yuta were informed of the situation and promised their president to keep quiet about it.

BAMBI ERA

RELATIONSHIPS

Insert Text here.

Goshi, Yuduki and Haruhi are known as the Returnee Trio.[5] Probably because they had lived abroad, the three of them are quite close and would sometimes communicate in English. They often hang out with each other in one of the twin's rooms during their days off, with Goshi sleeping over sometimes. [5] Goshi will also sometimes escape to their room.[6]

Goshi is a caring senpai towards them, and often fulfills their requests such as driving them to places like the Aquarium.[5] Even when he doesn't want to, he is eventually persuaded by the twins, either by Yuduki's puppy eyes or his stubbornness to treat Goshi to something nice.[7][8] Other than taking care of Haruhi when he wasn't feeling well[9], he would also tell Haruhi off for not cleaning his room.[5]

In return, the twins would declare their love for Goshi, saying that "It's not 'like', but 'love'". [5] Haruhi would sometimes make Goshi's favorite food, curry, for him. Haruhi mentions that he would like to go drinking with Goshi once he is of legal drinking age[5] and received a hand-me-down shirt from Goshi which Goshi wore for the cover of MY★STAR vol.6 Magazine. [5][10] Yuduki states that Haruhi takes good care of it.[10]

The relationship between Goshi and Tsubasa started out rather rocky as Goshi didn't have much trust in the newcomer Tsubasa was. He didn't think that she was even able to memorize all of their names.[11]

A returning and most important subject of Goshi's card stories is music. It was made clear that this is his passion, the one path he wants to go in life. It is exactly this passion that builds a connection between Tsubasa and Goshi. Both share a strong love for music. Even though she is not as well versed as Goshi, she is someone he likes to exchange opinions with about the newest releases of CDs, headphones and other things related to music[12]. Tsubasa admires and respects him for his vast knowledge of music.
They often times share a moment alone together, albeit unintentionally and much to Yuta's and Kento's dismay. The latters usually complain that Goshi monopolizes Tsubasa as they are often seen or found out to have spent time together because of their common interest[13][14].

Initially, Tsubasa was hesitant to talk to Goshi as he emitted an unapproachable aura. But she learnt to deal with his mood and read his behavior. His SSR「BIRTHDAY PARTY」highlights best how their bond developed emotionally. In the story Tsubasa stops Goshi from rejecting an important offer. She now can confidently support him with the right words.

Overall, the atmosphere around them became more relaxed. As a result, she does not have much reservations anymore when it comes to physical contact. The latter card stories of Goshi show her being more assertive which causes Goshi to blush frequently.[13][15] The same applies to when he is met with her genuine expressions of admiration or thanks towards him (SR「First Aid」).
They are comfortable enough with each other for her to find slight joy in scaring him (SSR「Dripping Water」) or chuckles lightly at his denial about some things (SR「Arrival of Spring」).

In his Kizuna story[16] Goshi had to change apartments every night because Kento and Yuta had the flu. Naturally KTKR also offered their place to stay for the time his two teammates are resting from sickness. But Goshi wasn't comfortable at all during his stay. He's greatly confused and put off by their overall atmosphere at home. In this opinion, everything has this "aristocratic" touch which makes him even more uneasy.

Goshi and MooNs are complete polar opposites. He had his communication difficulties with Momotaro, but they both learned to get along. Mikado often remarks Goshi's anger issues and that it produces winkles on his forehead – which in turn makes Goshi more annoyed. Tatsuhiro and Goshi get along well because of the former's calm nature. They share a reading American comics as a hobby, sometimes recommending issues they liked to the other[17].

However, Goshi finds MooNs to be too overbearing as a group, a conclusion he came to after he had to change his sleeping place every day because Kento and Yuta had the flu. MooNs didn't want to burden him with housework, so they made him a bit uncomfortable when everything was taken care of for him (see Goshi's Kizuna story in Kaikan*Everyday.

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 [18].

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[4][19].

According to Eisuke THRIVE has "genius musical sense" – that's why he highly respects them as true artists[20].

THRIVE's impression of Ultras is as diverse as the members themselves. Goshi dislikes their arrogant demeanor as rookies. For Ultras, GANDARA Music is merely a steppingstone to greater fame and success which Goshi thinks is disrespectful towards everyone involved.
Kento is less emotional in this regard. He takes what is given to him, so he isn't too bothered by Ultras' actions, similarly to Ryuji. Yuta treats Ultras with the same kind nature as with everyone he becomes acquainted with. Moreover, he is the one to defend them from Goshi's harsh words but is also worried about their surprising decisions which in turn give Tsubasa more work to deal with.
