|"Having tons of people listen to my music;|
That's my greatest dream!"
The boy who pours his red-hot passion into his band, a leader who cares for his friends!
Hayato Akiyama is one of the Idols available to produce at 315 Productions. He is a member of the Idol Unit, High×Joker. He was the guitarist for his Light Music Club band with Jun Fuyumi, Natsuki Sakaki, Haruna Wakazato, and Shiki Iseya.
Profile[edit | edit source | hide | hide all]
Hayato is the former guitarist of a light music club. He's a completely average high-school student, and started playing guitar in order to get popular with the girls. But now, together with his bandmates, he's seriously aiming towards becoming a top idol. A kind leader who always thinks of others, Hayato is the kind of boy who cries instantly whenever he feels moved.¹
Resume[edit | edit source | hide]
- Reasons for Becoming an Idol
I want to debut on a major label, so I'm starting small.... Training, I guess?
- Personal Motto
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
- Comments for the Future
I guess when it comes to the future, I have strong feelings about being successful as a band, not just an individual. Being able to hear other people’s thoughts, being able to tell them my own, I think that’s a blessing in and of itself.
- Comments about Unit Members
I think Jun’s really pretty amazing on the piano! I’m not very good at telling what Natsuki’s thinking, but there’s no doubt he’s got some talent. Haruna cleans up pretty well when we need him to, too! Shiki... well, he gets carried away pretty easily, but he’s a good kid.

Side Memories[edit | edit source | hide]
|You have a job request specifically for me? What is it… Huh!? A documentary!?|
|Hand over job proposal|
|Let’s see “We would like to request to take footage of the daily life of this popular band’s leader and how he tackles creating songs.”|
“And, if it is possible, we would like a new song to play in our program.” Wow!
|Hayatocchi’s going to be in a documentary!? That’s so cool! It makes ya sound like an expert artisan!|
|I know, right? I’ll take the job, producer! I’m going to make a new song too, of course!|
|That’s all good, but are you gonna be okay all by yourself, Hayato~?|
|I’ll be fine! This job focuses the attention on me this time.|
You know what that means, right!? If everything goes well, this might be my chance to get super popular!
|Honestly… There you go again with that impure motive of yours, Hayato…|
|I’ve said this before, but I genuinely want to be popular! That’s why it’s in no way impure!|
|...Hehe. Hayato is the same... as always.|
|Several days later, the filming for the documentary began.|
|Staff||We’ll be taking footage of the interior of the office for the opening of the program.|
All right, let’s get the cameras rol-
|Hello! Ah, there you are, Producer! Hey, you gotta look at this!|
|Hayato shows me the latest issue of a women’s magazine, all the while blushing.|
|Hehe… I wanted to prepare for the documentary, so I wanted to study up again on some techniques that’ll make me popular.|
I was super nervous buying this magazine by myself, but the articles about popularity in this magazine are awesome!
There’s a lot of really daring stuff written down and it was embarrassing to read, but I think I’m all ready for filming...
|They’re also ready to start filming...|
|They? ...Huh, cameras? What!? How long have they been here!?|
Oh no, don’t tell me the cameras are already rolling…!? Why!?
|Staff||Well, I didn’t see this coming, but this is perfect footage! It’s just like a high school boy to be so youthful!|
|Ahhhh! Wait, sir! Cut! Please cut!|
|A few days later, the documentary team began recording a meeting for the discussion of the new song among the High×Joker members.|
|Staff||Okay! All the cameras are rolling, so feel free to start anytime!|
|Ahem. Today, I would like to discuss the theme of the new song. I would like to begin this meeting by asking for your opinions on this subject, my fellow band members.|
|I can understand you want to look good in front of the cameras, but your manner of speaking is completely different from how you normally speak.|
|Yeah, that’s not how you always talk! You’re also acting totally different, man.|
|Th-that’s not true! Uhh, ahem! Okay, gentlemen! Please share your ideas on a new song!|
|Staff||Umm, is Hayato-kun always like this?|
|No way. He’s always like “I made this awesome new song! AW YEAH~!”|
|Shiiikiii! Stop being such a big mouth!|
|Ahaha! You can’t catch me that easily~!|
|Excuse me… sir. The weird way Hayato spoke before… is completely different from how he always speaks… But|
|But he always put in everything he’s got when he’s tackling any problem… That’s how Hayato always is.|
|There’s no recording today. You must be happy you don't need to act cool today, Hayatocchi.|
|… Hayato. Are you okay?|
|I’ve thought of a lot of phrases for the new song, but I just can’t put it all together.|
|You need to come up with a new song while they’re still recording footage too.|
Considering how far we’re in, if you don’t come up with at least a draft soon, things’ll get real bad, right?
|You’re right… Sorry. I’m gonna go outside to get some air.|
|He’s a serious minded person when it comes down to it. I hope he doesn’t brood on this too much…|
|*sigh* What am I doing? I don’t have time to be like this.|
(This is my job I need to do. I need to do my very best for it, but…)
|Sorry about that. I’m back… Huh? Everyone went home already.|
|Everyone was worried about you.|
|I see… I did something bad. I’m sorry I worried you too, Producer.|
(If I take up any more time, I’m just going to be a nuisance for everyone.)
(But if I keep thinking about this all by myself, nothing good is going to come from it…)
...Umm, Producer. I have something I want to talk to you about for a bit!
|At that moment, Hayato’s stomach grumbled|
|Ah! Uhh, that noise now… that wasn’t…|
|Wanna go get some dinner?|
|Ah. Ahaha… Yeah. Thank you for the offer. Ahh… I’m so embarrassed…|
I need to make sure to tell my brother later on that I’m eating out tonight.
|Phew, I’m stuffed. Thank you for the meal. So, about what I wanted to talk to you about…|
About the new song… I’ve got ideas in my head… but I can’t like put them together and come up with something.
They did all this hard work for a program about me as the leader of High×Joker...
I know I really need to get my act together, but look at how pathetic I am.
I can’t come up with a good song with my feelings all jumbled up like this.
I try to act all cool during recording… but all I’m doing is working but making no progress and being a nuisance to everyone in the band.
If I end up looking bad in that program, it’ll make everyone else look bad too…
*Sigh*...This is just awful… I’m a failure as a leader…
Ahhhhh, what am I saying! Haha, sorry for making things so gloomy. Forgot about what I said earlier…
|It’s important to be yourself too, Hayat|
|Like myself… but is that really okay? This is suppose to be about me as the leader of High×Joker, not myself, right?|
Just be how you always are every day… Really? I see.
I might’ve just been overthinking this whole thing. Thank you, Producer!
|I think I can come up with a good song now!|
I’ll write down as much ideas as I possibly can for now! Let’s get these hands moving!
I can use the phrase I wrote down earlier here… but I can’t just not use this awesome phrase here…
Hmm, I really want to use all four of these, but then the whole song won’t be consistent…
|There’s something that caught my eye...|
|Producer? You want to see all the music sheets I’ve written? Sure, I’d be happy to…|
|I told Hayato that all the phrases he’s mulling over right now fits the image of each member of High×Joker|
|Huh,these four phrases are just like the other members? I didn’t even notice it….|
...But you’re right. This one’s just like Shiki, and this one seems just like Jun…
Ah! Then maybe if I add a phrase that's just like me here… okay, time to think!
I-It’s done! It’s finally finished!
I need to finish fixing the smaller details here and there, but the outline is perfect!
It’s hard to believe I was even worrying about all of this not too long ago. This is all thanks to you, Producer!
I can’t wait to complete this song and play it on the guitar! All right, let’s do this!!
|A few days later, the 5 members of High×Joker are watching the documentary...|
|They even recorded him making a fuss about becoming popular… That’s just like Hayato though.|
|Ah! They kept the scene where he was chasing me around. They know their stuff~.|
|You look like you’re having fun, Hayato… that fits you more than trying to look cool.|
|Hayato looks like he’s dying of embarrassment right now though. Ah, looks like the new song is next.|
|Host||This new song will be a solo played by Hayato-san. Please say a few words to the audience before you start playing.|
|During the composition of this song, I wanted to work as hard as I could by myself at the start, but it didn’t work out well.|
But then I realized something, and I started thinking about phrases while thinking about all my band members.
I try too hard, try to act cool, and even sometimes fail… That's how I am.
But even someone like me can become a leader with my bandmates supporting me! That’s what I realized all over again.
In this new song, I put in all the good qualities of everyone and myself and my thoughts into it.
I have the best friends anyone could ask for! High×Joker is amazing!
In this song, I want all of you to know about me… and about High×Joker…
To the people who know about us and to our fans, I want you to like us more by hearing this song!
This song was created with all these emotions in it! Please listen to it!
|Your new song was very good, Hayato.|
|Uh-huh… You conveyed your feelings really well… Hayato.|
|Thank yo- Wait!? An interview with the band members? I didn’t know anything about this. What’s this about?|
|Hehehe. The truth is we were actually interviewed in secret during recording.|
|Yup. Now sit down and watch!|
|Host||What does your leader, Hayato-san, mean to all of you?|
|Well… Hayato’s a crybaby, but he always works hard and puts everything in all his work.|
When it comes down to it, he’s a reliable leader! That’s what I think at least!
|Serious respect to his guitar skills! He does work too hard sometimes and he’ll go around in circles because of it.|
Not like I have any right to say that to anyone else though… Still, all of his flaws are also a part of Hayatocchi’s charm!
|Let’s see… To be honest, when I look at him, I do worry about him sometimes…|
But Hayato is the one who brings us all together. That is what I think.
|...Hayato is always dedicated and earnest... His diligence gets passed on to all of us…|
That’s why… we’re able to think “We can do this... We'll do our best...”
|Hayato, your face is all wet. Were you really so touched that you cried that much?|
|I-I’m not crying yet!|
|Gotta be honest though, when I heard your new song, Hayatocchi, I got a little choked up!|
|The lyrics and song were filled with so much emotion… I felt like crying a little too…|
|Guys… Thank you. I really mean it.|
...Hey guys. I’m going to keep doing my best as leader, so I hope you’ll all stick with me.
|Of course. The only leader we’ll have now and forever is you, Hayato.|
|*sob* I knew it… High×Joker is the best unit ever!|
|You’re crying right now, aren’t you?|
|I said I’m not crying!! Geez! Would you all stop looking at me with those grins on your faces already!?|
