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.

Character Commu
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png You have a job request specifically for me? What is it… Huh!? A documentary!?
Producer-icon.png Hand over job proposal
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Hayatocchi’s going to be in a documentary!? That’s so cool! It makes ya sound like an expert artisan!
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png I know, right? I’ll take the job, producer! I’m going to make a new song too, of course!
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png That’s all good, but are you gonna be okay all by yourself, Hayato~?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png Honestly… There you go again with that impure motive of yours, Hayato…
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png I’ve said this before, but I genuinely want to be popular! That’s why it’s in no way impure!
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png ...Hehe. Hayato is the same... as always.

Character Commu
Producer-icon.png 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-
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Hello! Ah, there you are, Producer! Hey, you gotta look at this!
Producer-icon.png Hayato shows me the latest issue of a women’s magazine, all the while blushing.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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...
Producer-icon.png They’re also ready to start filming...
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Ahhhh! Wait, sir! Cut! Please cut!

Character Commu
Producer-icon.png 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!
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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.
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png 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.
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Yeah, that’s not how you always talk! You’re also acting totally different, man.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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?
Shiki Iseya-icon.png No way. He’s always like “I made this awesome new song! AW YEAH~!”
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Shiiikiii! Stop being such a big mouth!
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Ahaha! You can’t catch me that easily~!
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png Excuse me… sir. The weird way Hayato spoke before… is completely different from how he always speaks… But
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png But he always put in everything he’s got when he’s tackling any problem… That’s how Hayato always is.

Character Commu
Shiki Iseya-icon.png There’s no recording today. You must be happy you don't need to act cool today, Hayatocchi.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Hmm…
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png … Hayato. Are you okay?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png I’ve thought of a lot of phrases for the new song, but I just can’t put it all together.
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png 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?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png You’re right… Sorry. I’m gonna go outside to get some air.
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png He’s a serious minded person when it comes down to it. I hope he doesn’t brood on this too much…
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png *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…)

Character Commu
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Sorry about that. I’m back… Huh? Everyone went home already.
Producer-icon.png Everyone was worried about you.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!
Producer-icon.png At that moment, Hayato’s stomach grumbled
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Ah! Uhh, that noise now… that wasn’t…
Producer-icon.png Wanna go get some dinner?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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.

Character Commu
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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…
Producer-icon.png It’s important to be yourself too, Hayat
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!

Character Commu
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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…
Producer-icon.png There’s something that caught my eye...
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Producer? You want to see all the music sheets I’ve written? Sure, I’d be happy to…
Producer-icon.png I told Hayato that all the phrases he’s mulling over right now fits the image of each member of High×Joker
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!!

Character Commu
Producer-icon.png A few days later, the 5 members of High×Joker are watching the documentary...
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png They even recorded him making a fuss about becoming popular… That’s just like Hayato though.
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Ah! They kept the scene where he was chasing me around. They know their stuff~.
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png You look like you’re having fun, Hayato… that fits you more than trying to look cool.
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png 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.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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!

Character Commu
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png Your new song was very good, Hayato.
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png Uh-huh… You conveyed your feelings really well… Hayato.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png Thank yo- Wait!? An interview with the band members? I didn’t know anything about this. What’s this about?
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Hehehe. The truth is we were actually interviewed in secret during recording.
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png Yup. Now sit down and watch!
Host What does your leader, Hayato-san, mean to all of you?
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png 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!
Shiki Iseya-icon.png 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!
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png 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.
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png ...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...”

Character Commu
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png ...
Haruna Wakazato-icon.png Hayato, your face is all wet. Were you really so touched that you cried that much?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png I-I’m not crying yet!
Shiki Iseya-icon.png Gotta be honest though, when I heard your new song, Hayatocchi, I got a little choked up!
Natsuki Sakaki-icon.png The lyrics and song were filled with so much emotion… I felt like crying a little too…
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png 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.
Jun Fuyumi-icon.png Of course. The only leader we’ll have now and forever is you, Hayato.
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png *sob* I knew it… High×Joker is the best unit ever!
Producer-icon.png You’re crying right now, aren’t you?
Hayato Akiyama-icon.png I said I’m not crying!! Geez! Would you all stop looking at me with those grins on your faces already!?
