Resume[edit | edit source | hide]

Reasons for Becoming an Idol
With the brains and brawn that heaven has granted me, I wish to bring about peace to all of creation.
Personal Motto
“With Great Dignity.” That’s the way I want to live.
Comments for the Future
A pledge! I, Genbu Kurono! Shall, with these brains and this strength! Be afraid of nothing! Lose to nothing! Swear to go to the extremes of idoldom, and reach the top of the idol world! “Rivals in their strongholds?” “Lions in their dens?” It’s all just fine with me. I’ll push ‘em all aside, and aim for glory!
Comments about Unit Members
Suzaku and I, we’re in the same boat here. “One Lotus Bears Both Lives.” That’s the kind of relationship we’ve got. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t even be around. That’s how important a friend he is to me. Nyako? He’s no good. None of him. At all. Listen, I can’t help my allergies, alright?!
