  1. Hello, fellow weeb mortal. I welcome thee to thy realm of weeb awesomeness.

    Here's a nice music to listen to as you settle down.



    Now, I know this is a sudden request, but I would like to ask you to just observe and not make your affairs in my quarters.

    Otherwise...

    "Doesn't it get stale? The fact that everyone's actions lack flavor, I mean. The standards of this world today is shitty. You have to be part of the norm. If you aren't, you are considered "weird". Since when did the world decree it as a law? Normalcy is boring."

    "Tsk. I knew that would happen. How uninteresting."

    "Hey, hey. Don't blame me if I'm talented unlike you shitstains. Its not all fun and games. I worked my ass off to get to where I am now, y'know?"

      "Waking up everyday and reliving your life through the same habitual routine over-and-over narrows your perception. This world has stopped evolving because it lacks the motivation to advance. Long story short, life is just too damn predictable. Boring. Dull. Repetitive. Monotonous. Tedious."

      Yura, despite his disdain of stereotypes, has the unfortunate irony of having the appearance of a generic character. He has red eyes with shadows underneath them and black hair with an ahoge on the top of his head. He is usually seen wearing his school uniform, but sometimes he wears his casual clothes which consist of a black sweatshirt with stripes on the side and black trousers. He has a lean build, yet is a bit short for his age. Yura has an attractive face which is what makes him popular amongst the female students, describing him as an "ikemen".

      Don't let his frail and fragile appearance fool you; he is athletic. He is a frequent practitioner of Judo, having achieved a 6th degree (Godan) black belt in ranking, showing his competence and skill in martial arts. He isn't sickly and is pretty much in peak physical condition, capable of climbing trees with minor difficulty.

      "Show me something interesting, for once."

      Yura Yukitani is an extremely apathetic individual, showing boredom or disinterest in most things. This is due to his belief that life is predictable. He is dangerously savvy about the things occurring around him, thinking of outcomes from different angles due to the predictability of it. Due to this, he is mainly an observer, preferring to just watch rather than act. Yura rarely gets outcomes that he doesn't expect, but when he does, he gets fully absorbed. As Yura is groomed to be part of the elite, he has done most things a high school student his age could do.

      Yura always exposes a bored facial expression, as well as an affable and calm, yet condescending and rude tone, especially when challenged or threatened. He has a tendency to boast from time-to-time, but this is mostly reserved to people who challenge him. He is borderline deadpan. He has no inhibitions in being blunt, stating the obvious even if his words can hurt anyone. When he is confessed to by other girls, he abruptly rejects them, telling them that:

      "You have no right to fall in love with me when you know next-to-nothing about me. All you see in me are just my grades. Besides, this futile romance only ends one way or another: me breaking your heart or you breaking mine."

      He is prone to doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants, due to his own admission that his body is his own property to begin with. He tends to be solitary, finding comfort in reading books on top or on the trunk of trees. Yura is often described as someone who is "good in most aspects except being social".

      Yura is an intellectual and analytic young man, as evidenced by him being an honors student in a cream-of-the-crop university in Japan. He excels in most, if not all of his subjects, granting him his title as an honors student. Beneath his stepford smile lies a mischievous and crafty mind who can and will formulate plans to "destroy" his enemies, at least socially. Once Yura gets pissed off enough to warrant undivided attention from him, he is sure to find a way to make them be humiliated in public fashion.


      While all of this summarizes Yura's personality to be a haughty jerkass, he isn't heartless. You could say that his personality varies depending on his interactions. He can be genuinely kind to those whom he deems worthy of attention (which unfortunately, is barely anyone, due to his apathetic personality), and can pretty much have a casual chat with anyone who doesn't discriminate him. He is also selfless when needed. As an example; Yura helped Imari's family through hard times, and it was his own decision to do so.

      Also, while he does boast about his achievements when winning against someone, Yura never once boasted about his wealth or high-standing in society. In fact, he never bragged about his ranking in the academy, and even points out that he hates the ranking system because it "biases the potential" of students.

    • Family and Household:

      [​IMG]
      Arata Yukitani and Juzo Yukitani - Yura and Chisa's parents. Owners of the Yukitani Corporation. They groomed both Chisa and Yura to be someone worthy of their status. They don't get to see them often, due to being loaded with work. Surprisingly enough for a family like them, they don't mind giving their children leeway with life as long as they don't embarrass the Yukitani name. They also helped Imari's grandfather and her family, by Yura's request.


      [​IMG]
      Chisa Yukitani - Yura's elder sister, entitled to inherit the family business. She is Yura's sparring partner in Judo, as she herself is a practitioner. She often teases her about not getting a girlfriend, despite his talents, much to his chagrin. She keeps pushing him and Imari together, shipping them. Despite this, she cares for him like a loving big sister would. Chisa is Yura's sparring partner in Judo, and often gets his ass handed to him by her. As he grew, Yura eventually defeated her in a straight fight.

      While Yura barely communicates with anyone due to his mediocre social skills, Chisa is a social butterfly, interacting with everyone as if she were just catching fishes.


      [​IMG]
      Imari Urara - youngest maid of the Yukitani household. Aged 17. She was given her job by Yura. She came from a poor background, living on the outskirts of Tokyo along with her family. Her grandfather had Osteoarthritis, and they were rejected by the hospital due to lack of funds. Yura and his family helped them and got him treated. Yura also offered her a job as a maid of the Yukitani household, to which she accepts.

      She is deeply indebted to Yura, and shows loyalty and admiration for him due to his actions in saving their family. Yura knows this, though he is surprised that while Imari is a girl who shows how much she likes him, she never once confessed her feelings to him. This is a good thing for him, because of his current disinterest in romance. They became close as time passed by, and she was always there for him whenever he felt down, acting as his confidant. While Yura is fine with being called "Master" by the other servants, he feels a bit uncomfortable whenever Imari herself calls him that.

      Yura trusts him enough to make her his personal chaperone in his stay at the isle of Sora-no-Woto.


      Kuwabara Academy:

      [​IMG]
      Gakuto Togashima - Ranked No. 1 of the Sophomores in Kuwabara Academy, and class 2-A's president. Gakuto is in a relationship with Mizuki Mitsunohara. He absolutely loathes Yura, looking at every opportunity to make him miserable. Unfortunately for him, Yura only thinks of him as a nuisance not even worth giving attention. He is also the leader of a group of delinquents.


      [​IMG]
      Mizuki Mitsunohara - Class President of 2-B, and Yura's classmate. One of the most popular female students in the academy, Mizuki used to be ranked second among the Sophomores, until Yura took the ranking from her, making her third. She is in a relationship with Gakuto Togashima.

      Yamaboshi Academy:

      To be determined.

    • Indeed, he is considered to be "The Ace". He is smart, talented, and pretty much has a good future ahead of him. However, his outward personality tends to repel most people, or worse, make them his enemies. While Yura thinks having enemies is good, the unexpected may happen in a way that puts his life in actual danger. Case in point, he is only an 18-year old boy. Being talented doesn't make his reaction to physical or mental pain different from others.

    • Yura Yukitani was born-and-raised in Tokyo, Japan. He comes from a wealthy background, with his father and mother being CEO and secretary (respectively) of the Yukitani Corporation, a major steel manufacturing company in Japan. He has an elder sister two years older than him, Chisa Yukitani, who is bound to inherit the corporation from their parents' hands. In his early childhood, he had already started practicing martial arts, like his sister.

      Before his first year of high school, Yura meets a girl named Imari Urara, and her sickly grandfather. He had osteoarthritis, a condition in the joints. They were outside the hospital, rejected since they lacked the funds to pay for her grandfather's joint replacement surgery. Without a second thought, Yura called his family and requested to pay for the treatment of Imari's grandfather. They did so, resulting in the improvement of his joints. Imari and her family were deeply grateful towards Yura and his family for helping her grandfather. Learning that they were from a poor background, the family hires Imari as a maid in their household. They didn't even ask any form of repayment for her grandfather's surgery; but this was Yura's way of wanting to help her and her family from their financial troubles.

      During his first two years of high school, he attended Kuwabara Academy, one of the most prestigious and well-known educational institutions in Japan. His virtue in being studious has garnered him his standing as the one of the Top 10 students of his year (Sophomores), ranked second. He becomes popular amongst the female students, and of course, hated by the males due to his status. Yura found this in itself as something typical of a high school setting. Despite all of this, he maintained his "lone-wolf" persona, spending most of his time at school alone. He would usually go on top of one of the trees in the campus, wasting his time by reading books. He rarely associates with anyone, even the professors. This is why he was treated with disdain despite his high standing.

      One day, he was approached by Mizuki Mitsunohara, president of class 2-B (Yura's class) and ranked third of the Sophomores. She was the most popular girl amongst the school due to her academic ability and good looks. She was Yura's classmate, but this was the first time they interacted. Mizuki offered to be Yura's study partner, to which he reluctantly agreed. They spent a whole two hours, discussing about the lecture topics for the upcoming exams. Of course, he had his suspicions about her actions; an abrupt invitation to a duo study when that moment was the first time they talked? Seems too shady. However, Yura completely forgot about it since he was having fun competing with her; a rare moment for him to experience.

      Then it turned out Yura was right to be suspicious. Mizuki offered him to walk home together, which he accepted. He realized it too late when she was bringing him somewhere secluded, and all of a sudden, he was ganged up by a group of delinquents lead by Gakuto Togashima, the best student among the second-years.

      WIP

      Yura, along with Imari as his personal chaperone, transferred to the Isle of Sora-no-Woto, off the coast of Western Japan. One of their branch companies resided in the Eastern/Industrial District of the island, and thus there was no problem in terms of picking a place to stay. He has a luxury room in the company building all for himself as well as another room next to his for his maid Imari's.

      Since it was the only school in the isle, Yura had enrolled to Yamaboshi Academy, a normal high school institution. He was immediately sent an invitation to enroll by the higher-ups of the academy when word of the son of the Yukitani Corporation as well as an honors student at the prestiged Kuwabara Academy arriving in the isle got out.

      He really wasn't expecting much from a school of its caliber when he had already attended and partially finished at one of the best schools in Japan. Little did he know... of the mysterious experiment that was being played out in that institution...

    Yura's Nature


    [​IMG]

    "Would you like to be my friend?"
    Personality:
    • Outgoing - Yura is by default one of the friendliest members of his class, and is the easiest to approach. He generally tries to get along with everyone, even the most recluse of individuals in his class.
    • Calm - Another trait accompanied with Yura's friendly demeanor. It would certainly be out-of-character for him to shout angrily, as the air of tranquility surrounding him is quite relaxing, as some would attest.
    • Laidback - Yura seems relaxed most of the time, with nothing worrying him in the slightest. In fact, it appears as if he was tackling much of his school life with much joy and no concern.
    • Childish - He has a tendency to become juvenile whenever he gets excited, playful, or when topics of interest are brought to the table.
    • Gentleman - Yura is considered chivalrous by many, helped by his serene attitude and courtesy. He is the type of individual to go out, doing deeds like helping the elderly cross the street, all with a beaming formality.t of his actions during

    Most Relevant Sin: Sloth
    Most Relevant Virtue: Kindness
    Most Relevant Ideology: Order


    Delving Deeper


    Likes:
    • Bodies of Water - Since he lived his childhood on the riverside, Yura would often go out and play on the river. He has grown into loving oceans, lakes, rivers; basically any waterbody. He would often state the vast seas as the "most beautiful image" he'd cast his gaze upon.
    • Marine life/ecology - In conjunction with his admiration for the deep blue, he also delves deep into the creatures of the sea. For this reason, he loves to visit aquariums, indulging in his fascination of aquatic animals. At times, he would often quote pointless trivia about the animals that he tends to study. As his dad jokingly implies: "If only Yura focused more on his actual studies rather than studying on aquatic animals, then he has a shot for being a valedictorian." In retrospect, this is quite the irony when you figure out that he is a fisherman like his dad. Yura knows full well that the fish he lures, baits and catches are for consumption. He admits that it is such a shame, but "it can't be helped"; that is just the way life goes. He compares them to beautiful trees that needed to be cut down for building structures, and making way for free land.
    • Coffee/Tea - CASE IS CLOSED on which among the two beverages he likes better. He apparently likes them 50-50. His favorite type of coffee is the Coffee Latte. Jasmine tea for tea. He would often prepare some in his spare time, sharing them with others if need be.
    • Social Activities - Being a social butterfly and an avid self-proclaimed "explorer of the world", Yura loves social gatherings and field trips. He enjoys the experiences he'd make by meeting new people, befriending them, and witnessing the flora, fauna, culture and tradition of Japan.
    • Music - Yura plays a "bamboo flute" as his primary musical instrument. It was carved for him by his mother. When he's alone, Yura would often settle down, drink a cup of coffee or tea, and then play a tune or two.

    Dislikes:
    • Bullying - While Yura isn't picky on whom to socialize with, he is most definitely annoyed when he sees someone getting bullied. He is the vice-president of an "Anti-Bully Campaign" at school. It turns out that his disdain for bullies came from his past, despising himself for what he had done back then.
    • Spicy food - The one thing that Yura wouldn't cook ever again are these. The first time he had tasted spicy food, he described the moment as if he were "gasping for breath".
    • Pollution - As the type of guy who takes in everything he sees, breathes or feels, Yura is peeved by contamination of any kind. Especially water pollution. Oh, that's a big step beyond the boundaries for his tolerance.
    • Sexual advances - Yura likes a slow, sure and honest relationship. He doesn't mind being in a intimate relationship, but sexual innuendo at an early age is a no-no for him. He would dodge any such related advances by bluntly saying "There is a right time for everything."

    Hobbies:
    • Fishing - The Yukitani household business primarily focuses on fishing. So obviously, this was his calling. Yura is an expert at looking for spots where fishes normally lurk, as well as luring them into his fishing rod's hook. He often goes out with his father on weekends, spending some quality time with him while challenging each other on who gets the bigger catch by the end of the day.
    • Socializing - Yura Yukitani is quite the social butterfly; you would often see him interacting with anyone. He tends to avoid the more dangerous elements like delinquents, but can approach them when he feels comfortable around them. He also lets people open up to him about certain personal topics and keeping secrets.
    • Cooking - Yura is an excellent cook, as evidenced by his parents always looking forward to the meals that he prepares for them. His style involves testing out different ingredients as a trial-and-error basis until he finds the perfect recipe. This is also applied to his preparing of tea and coffee, crafting his own sweet blend.
    • Preparing tea/coffee - Yura has a reserved tea set at school, and usually prepares various blends of tea and/or coffee for himself and for others, even during classes. He also memorizes each one of his friends' favorite blends.
    • Playing the flute - Another of his hobbies, usually done whenever he has no one to talk to/is by himself. Years of self-practice had him hone his skills, to the point wherein he was actually scouted one time by an agent of a musical production.

    Fears:
    • Conflict - Stemming from an event that had occurred in his past, Yura Yukitani is really averse to the idea of dispute; either between him and other people or just witnessing it in general.
    • Making people upset/Gaining enemies - Either directly or indirectly, Yura has a guilt complex originating from his past fallout with a fellow classmate. He abhors making mistakes that would cause a squabble, and panics when he does. It just tends to silently break him when he finds out that somebody is harboring an ill will towards him.
    Reputation


    Friends:
    A vast majority of people in Yura's circle of friends would unanimously agree that he is one of the friendliest and calmest students around. There are times that his naivete stands out, partly in due to his outgoing tendencies. He is also considered to be a talented flute player, as his listener's applause would attest. Most would admit to keeping him company just to hear him play and have a sip of his special blend of tea or coffee.

    Enemies:
    While he himself doesn't notice it since they aren't vocal about the topic, the students who detest Yura (mostly jealous guys and introverted students) perceive him as some "Mr. Perfect, goody two-shoes" and a tryhard.


    Others:
    The rest of the student body who hasn't been approached by the extroverted Yura would see him as "that calm yet cheerful guy who plays the flute and is always holding a teacup". Few female students admit to having a crush on him, due to his talent, personality and a "cute girlish face". Yura is pretty much an average student when it comes to academics, yet he is prominent due to his quirks.

    Self-Introduction


    [​IMG]

    "If you're here to listen to an interesting background, sadly, I am not the right guy to approach. I've pretty much lived my life with normalcy. I guess you could say that I'm lucky to have such an accustomed upbringing. However, that doesn't mean I can't tell a tale or two. So why don't you sit down, since you're already here? I've made jasmine tea to help you settle down. They say that jasmine reduces stress and promotes relaxation.

    I'm just another guy whose had his fair share of mistakes in the past. You might not believe it, but the Yura Yukitani you see and know today is a result of his self-reflection. I used to be quite the rowdy kid, you see. And I joined the wrong crowd. The result? I got a taste of my own medicine. And it hurt me real bad. It was at that exact moment when I realized that hurting people... hurts me.

    Since then, I changed my ways. What I regretted most was the fact that I wasn't able to apologize to that person. When I see him once more, I shall definitely tell him "I'm sorry" and "Thank you". He pulled me away from the darkness, despite showing his hatred for me. I fully felt the pain that I dealt upon him, and I shall shoulder that pain as punishment.

    Hmmm, that turned quite dark, didn't it? Ah! How did the jasmine taste? Was it too bitter?"

    [ Virtu-Ava Section ]

    "Satte... Hajimemashou ka?"
    ("Well then... Shall we get started?")

    [​IMG]

    Hikari-Kami

    Appearance:
    Yura's Virtu-Ava is pretty much a carbon copy of his actual appearance. The only difference is that his Virtu-Ava has a glowing triangular halo on top of his head, and a multitude of majestic and well-trimmed fox-tails.

    Weapon:
    UNARMED, but he uses an array of light spells as his primary form of attack and defense.

    [ Battle Actions ]

    Skill 1


    [ Halo Barrier ]
    TYPE: GUARD
    DESCRIPTION:
    Yura raises both his index and middle fingers while clenching the others. This action summons a light magic barrier in front of him, reflecting thin attacks and pushing back opponents. Its downside is that it is impotent, which means heavy-hitting attacks would eventually break it.

    Skill 2


    [ Heavenly Pillar ]
    TYPE: HEAVY
    DESCRIPTION:
    Yura clasps his palms together. A wide magic circle would then appear in a targeted area, and summons forth a gargantuan amount of light energy around the Area-of-Effect, surging up to a height of 100 meters in the form of a pillar.

    Skill 3


    [ Astral Body ]
    TYPE: FAST
    DESCRIPTION:
    Yura closes his eyes for a moment, enchanting his body to increase his mobility tenfold. He then rushes directly toward the opponent at an immense speed before piercing through the opponent's torso with the light generated from his palm.

    Skill 4


    [ Ragnarok ]
    TYPE: HEAVY
    DESCRIPTION:
    Yura swipes both of his arms in a circular motion until the bottom of his hands meet. The hand on top has the index and middle fingers pointing upwards, while the other hand has the little and index fingers pointing downwards. Once this action is completed, swords, axes, and other bladed weaponry starts materializing one-by-one from the sky, reaching up to more than a hundred. His hands then meet, causing the weapons from the sky to fall down at a tremendous speed towards a target area.

    Skill 5


    [ Illusion Phase ]
    TYPE: GUARD
    DESCRIPTION:
    Yura waits for his opponent to come into contact with his physical form (actually an illusion). Once the opponent makes contact, his body slowly dissipates into thin air before materializing behind the opponent, hitting them through the back with light energy.

    The World


    Positive / Acceptance

    "Life is indeed amazing, y'know? If only there were no conflict or strife between people, this world would have been perfect. But hey... A man can dream, can he?"

    Sagawa Mizunohara


    Positive / Acquainted

    "Mizunohara-san and I were classmates since last year. And I gotta say... Color me impressed! She has quite the talent and know-how in regards to technology! I'll be quite frank... I'm a bit vacuous when it comes to such topics. Turns out, Mizunohara-san was the perfect person to approach. She tutors me every now and then on how the Virtu-Ava system works. For a cheap price of meat buns and a cup of tea! Quite the bargain, if you'd ask me."
    Kira Oshiro


    Positive / Acquainted

    "Ah, a fellow kindred who is fascinated with the ways of music! It's such a shame that the booming rock and metal music that she adores is incompatible with the more tranquil flute that I practice. Well, who knows? Maybe we can actually pull something off. It won't hurt to try, right?"

    Lisa Yamagawa


    Romance / Arranged Romance

    "Ah, Lisa-chan. The love of my life. Ahahaha! Well... technically, she is the love of my life. *sigh* I still wonder to this day why our parents arranged both of us to get married. It was just so out-of-place. My mom and Mrs. Yamagawa seemingly plotted us to get together, for some reason. It's probably because we're looking more and more like an actual couple to them. Ah, I don't know." *shrugs*

    "Lisa Yamagawa. I pretty much just call her Lisa-chan. She and I first met when my dad and I were fishing at one of our favorite river spots. Plenty of hunting spots and all that. As we were having a hearty conversation about me getting a girlfriend, this girl was suddenly screaming "Help!" all of a sudden. She seemed to have ended up in the middle of the river. Apparently, she is that bad at swimming. On a man's instinct, I immediately dived into the water and saved her from drowning."

    "After that, we took her and her mom who was with her, Mrs. Yamagawa, back home. After a nice cup of tea and a little chat, we grew close as friends. She would visit me from time-to-time, and we would often hang out like an actual couple. Maybe that's what sparked our parents' desire to hook us both together."

    "Well.. to be honest, I really don't mind this kind of scenario. Of course, I was a bit shocked at first when they just threw that proposition into the table without our consent. And I could tell from Lisa-chan's eyes that she REALLY doesn't want to go through with this. But... now that I think about it, at the end of the day, us hanging out often, having a good time and a hearty laugh makes it obvious that we look like a couple, indeed."

    "I promised myself that I would only find my one true love once I finish school, but I never expected a development like this. Well, who am I to complain? She is a truly charming girl. Other guys would kill me just being with someone like her. I do admit that her mannerisms had tugged my heartstrings a couple of times already."

    "Still, I wonder how she feels about me. Considering she really doesn't like intimate relationships, I try my best to give that "close friend" vibe, and maybe our parents would stop joking around eventually."
    Yuuki Iwasawa


    Positive / Middle School Friends

    "I'll be perfectly honest... When we became classmates during middle school, my first impression on Iwasawa-kun is that he was an attractive young lady. Oh boy, how me and the class were proven wrong on that day. Ahahahaha! I was so stupid back then that I got my heartstrings almost pulled from time-to-time whenever we'd hang out, only to be pushed back when my obliviousness fades."

    Misheru Tachibana


    Negative / Irrelevant Friendship

    "Tachibana-san was quite the tomboyish redhead with a hidden girly side. She has a colorful personality, to boot! Needless to say, she was adorable. Don't tell her, though. She'll kill me! Ahahaha!"

    "Nowadays though, we just seem to hang out less and less. I suspected that there was something going on between Lisa-chan and her, so maybe that was part of why. While I do want to know what went on between them and maybe find a way for a resolution, I did not want to be too much of a bother to both of them... so I just ignored it."

    Yuuki Kimura


    Positive / Middle School Friends

    "Ahhhh... Kimura-kun. I remembered how quiet and withdrawn he was back then. And all it took to bring him out of his hermit life was inviting him often during our middle school field trips. He had no choice but to agree. After all, once I've had my sights on an anomaly in the class, I'd force them to mingle with life in any way I can!"

    "Then I learned during our time together that he was quite the pervert. Kimura-kun tends to pull me into his salacious antics. Despite my resistance, he has put me into a situation where I was almost caught along with him. *sigh* Really, that guy..."

    "Regardless though, we hung out a lot more than I expected from him. His scooter was quite a rad ride. And he loves it as much as he loves peeping on women."

    Abe Kuroya


    Positive / Middle School Friends

    "This long-haired pretty boy is a fellow brethren of mine who loves his tea. Needless to say, we get along really well. Whenever we hang out, he would always be expecting for a humble cup without even asking for it. I'm really glad that he likes the blend I make for him! He's my tea connoisseur, that's for sure."

    Noxi Keoni


    Positive / Childhood Friends

    "Keoni-kun and I are long time compatriots. Not as long as I have been with Rei and Michi, but it was still quite a while. He's got smarts that I couldn't hope to surpass. He's usually the class representative, thanks to his idealism and intelligence, and is commended by the whole class; myself included. Keoni-kun... He's the spitting image of what I want to be in the future. Worthy of respect, my friend. Worthy of respect."

    Iori Nishimura


    Negative / Irrelevant Friendship

    "Ah, Nishimura-san. We were acquainted during the eighth grade, as classmates. I haven't forgotten about her, I swear! It's just... We seem to have drifted apart and lost contact after that. I guess this is the drawback of being so overly outgoing that I couldn't fit everyone in my circle of friends... Thankfully, we meet once more here in Hisakawa. I should probably say hi, now that were classmates yet again."

    Chiyo Imada


    Positive / Amiable Classmates

    "We really haven't spoken much yet, since she has her own circle of friends. But I do see the extroverted energy beneath her seemingly shy advances, so I see no doubt in us getting along well."

    Rei Saionji and Michio Kamijou


    Positive / Childhood Friends

    "Ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. Rei and Michi were my first few friends after that incident... No one would talk to me much back then, after being branded as a bully. It was to be expected, so I just had to endure their cold shoulders. The first two people to accept my kindness from redemption were Rei and Michi. I was so happy back then, I couldn't hold back my tears. Ahahaha...! That moment was truly eventful for me, even if they don't see it themselves, as it made me realize how morally satisfying it is to be a good person. Rei, Michi and I would often hang out in the playground, having a childhood blast."

    "Now, however... the two of them became reserved individuals who seem to not enjoy each other's company anymore. They seem to be hiding something from me... I wonder what's wrong...?"

    Mika Tsubasa


    Positive / Acquainted

    "Tsubasa-san, the heavy sleeper. Oh, how our bonds strengthened on a good start! You see, she and I first interacted when our teacher paired the two of us for an after-school chore of bringing some supplies from the stock room. The things were quite heavy, and I'm not a very built person. And so is she, for having a small stature and an indolent motivation. Needless to say, by the time we were finished with the torturous labor, we both fell asleep on our desks and woken up by a passing student. We just laughed it off by the end of the day."

    Narita Taigi


    Positive / Acquainted

    "The guy looks quiet, stern and serious most of the time, plus he usually keeps to himself... so I can't really read his emotions. We've conversed a number of times already, so I reckon we're pretty solid. I do get this "I don't want to talk to people" vibe from him, so I just tend to leave him alone."
    Leo Kane


    Negative / Mutually Annoyed

    "... *sigh* Kane-kun is a bit... much for me to interact with. I believe Lisa-chan would agree with me on this. I'm not optimistic on the fact that we could get along, but.. he'd be a decent person if he'd just tone down his cocky bravado."

    "After all, for a man to prove that he is the best, he must make all the others look inferior by comparison. ... You know where I'm getting at, right?"

    Benedict Arkhamm / Hugo Helbram

    A teen prodigy who seeks two things: challenge and retribution.
    Forged from a grandiose name and a horrible event,
    he bares his fangs against the modern age.
    His sharp tongue that is matched by his fabled prowess

    finally comes out of the shadows as a remnant out for revenge
    against those who had stolen everything from the palm of his hand.


    His Encore

    "MY NAME IS HUGO HELBRAM! SO, YOU PUNKS THOUGHT YOU'VE PUT DOWN THE FAMED HELBRAM FAMILY, EH?? Well, let me tell you a little something something. I'M STILL STANDING, MOTHERFUCKERS! I dare all of you to put me down. I FUCKIN' DARE YA! HYAHAHAHAHAHA!"

      * Anomaly - something that deviates from what is standard, normal or expected.
      * Outcast - A person who has been rejected by society or a social group.
      * Gang - 1) a group of criminals; 2) a group of young people who do illegal things together and who often fights against other gangs; 3) a group of people who are friends and who do things together


      In this world exists a biased belief wherein individuals judge each other by their appearance, race, background and actions. However, we humans are just too insensitive and condemnatory about these things to the point where we just cement facts according to the rumors of the majority and close the case without delving deeper or taking notice of what truly mattered. Indeed, the society we live in today has standards wherein a collective's judgement dictates what is "normal" and what is "abnormal".

      It's simple, really. Those who are seen as popular, smart, successful, wealthy and with power are held in high regard by the norm. They are whom we could call "elites". On the other hand, those who are seen as failures; such as delinquents, the unintelligent, the anti-social, the vagrant and basically anything considered an anomaly by the norm, are often treated as the leftovers of the community. These people are usually known as the "outcasts". They are kicked out of what is considered normal and are usually picked on and treated with disdain. Disconnecting from the people who shunned them including their families, they isolated themselves from the populace. And, as fate would have wanted it, the remnants among these outcasts started to merge and create a society of their own; known as gangs.

      Here; in an expansive and bustling city at Kyoto prefecture known as Kizugawa, daily life is treated exactly as I, the narrator, have expounded it. Gangs and other lawless elements started to roam around here and there, partaking in minor misconduct and immoral behavior. There are different types and forms of gangs, unified and working towards a certain goal or agenda. That "goal" varies from diverse self-imposed motivations such as revenge, survival, dominance and the like.

      Day-by-day, these gangs are slowly but steadily rising in power. They have become more and more aggressive over the past few years, and their initial misdeeds are progressively becoming worse; turning into serious charges and heinous crimes. The authorities and local police are now starting to take action against these unruly offenders.

      Amidst the "war" of clashing beliefs lies a dormant street gang. They are considered a "gang", but for a completely divergent cause. Yes, they are treated as outcasts and is considered a "street gang" due to their nature and background, but there is something that deviates them from the rest; something which society does not and will never hope to understand.

      They want to be loved. They want someone who would treat them as equals. They want someone who can call their "friend".

      THEY DO NOT LIKE TO BE ALONE.

      Something as silly and down-to-earth as that is this particular group's primary motivation for existing. They are a gathering of individuals thrown away by the general public. Some of them dislike their families and became runaways. One thing is for certain in this tight-knit ragtag bunch: What they lack in strength, they make up for it with an unbreakable bond for each other.
