Profile[edit | edit source | hide | hide all]

Takeru is a former professional boxer. He became an idol in order to find the family he grew up with at the orphanage. Takeru isn't the type to show his emotions on the outside, so it's easy to mistake him as bad-tempered and cross. In truth, he's just a poor speaker. A stoic hard worker with passion hidden deep within, Takeru doesn't miss a single day of training¹.

Resume[edit | edit source | hide]

Reasons for Becoming an Idol
To get back an irreplaceable treasure of mine. One that means a lot to me. That’s my reason.
Personal Motto
Victory! ...That’s pretty much it.
Comments for the Future
Even I know being an idol ain’t anythin’ to expect from a guy like me. But, there’s something I just can’t let go of. I’ll do whatever it takes. With that in mind, I want you to show me the way.
Comments about Unit Members
The ramen Enjoji-san makes is delicious. He’s a real swell guy, so I respect him. As for that other guy... Ugh, I dunno what the hell’s up with him. He’s always gettin’ all up in my face. The hell’s his problem...?
