Personality[]

Akira can be seen as intimidating by the students of Siegfeld. She is well-respected in the school as its top student and is often admired and looked up to. At first glance, she is quite stoic, harsh, and not very good at understanding other people’s feelings. However, this is rooted in her profound passion for acting and theater. As such, she values loyalty and dedication towards the stage above anything else. She disdains people who take on challenges with a clear knowledge of its risks and sacrifices only for them to not honor their word. This was shown in the Stranded Stage Girls event where she lashed out at former edel Fumi Yumeoji for her “betrayal” of Siegfeld — and of Akira herself.[3]

Unbeknownst to others, Akira maintains a composed and resolute act in order to match the expectations of the people around her, especially as she bears the title of “Frau Platin”. Beneath her harsh exterior, she is actually quite caring and perceptive, seen in her ability to spot stage girls with potential such as the timid Shiori Yumeoji, and in how she reaches out to those who are shunned for their passion and interests such as Yachiyo Tsuruhime’s proclivity for make-believe.[4]

Much like Maya, Akira is not one to rest on her laurels and acknowledges those who relentlessly work to go above and beyond her expectations. Due to this, she also places extremely high standards upon herself. She refuses to tolerate half-hearted efforts from her peers and would firmly reprimand them for not giving something their all; encouraging them to aim higher and realize their true potential. Moreover, as leader of the Edels, Akira always strives to set an example for her fellow stage girls. This makes her prone to self-sacrifice for their sake, such as when she went without eating in Stranded Stage Girls because "It's only natural for those who do the work to get the food."[5]

Background[]

Like Maya, Akira's parents are in the entertainment industry; her father is a film director, and her mother is a retired actress.[6] At some point in her childhood, she became friends with Michiru. They saw Elysion's Chapter of Kings together around when they were eight- or nine-years-old[7], which inspired them to train in singing, dancing, and piano together in order to perform in Elysion themselves one day.[8]

Before theater, Akira was a ballet dancer so well-known in her age group that both Claudine and Shizuha say that everyone who did ballet in their age group has likely heard of her.[9][10] Claudine mentions that she expected Akira to do ballet professionally.[11] Akira was also well-known for her figure skating skills in elementary school; she won the elementary school competition three years in a row and was praised for her potential to go even farther in the sport.[12]

Along with Maya, Claudine, and Shizuha, Akira took part in the Performance Festival during her first year.[13]

Relationships[]

Michiru Otori[]

Akira and Michiru are childhood friends that aspired to enter Siegfeld together after seeing a performance of Elysion as children. They made a promise to become Edels at Siegfeld someday, with Michiru promising to do anything in her power to help Akira become Frau Platin. To this day, Akira still considers Michiru her closest friend and confidant, seeming to greatly admire and have a deep trust in her.

Fumi Yumeoji[]

Before moving to Rinmeikan, Fumi and Akira studied together at Siegfeld as first years. Like Akira, Fumi is very strict and has a very serious attitude. Akira had high expectations of Fumi, and considered her an equal. However, after a disastrous performance in the final exam of the first year, Fumi suffered serious trauma and decided to quit performing. Akira admits to Shiori in Main Story 8 Part 3 that she regrets her fault of not being able to keep Fumi in the school.

The two meet again during the Stranded Stage Girls event, where they fight because of Akira's lack of trust in Fumi. Akira acknowledges that she knew about Fumi's suffering during her time as an Edel, but says she was unable to overcome her role as Frau Platin to reach out and help her properly. After the fight, Akira congratulates Fumi on returning to the stage.

Shiori Yumeoji[]

Akira cares a lot about helping Shiori improve, often helping to coach Shiori. She also cares a lot about making sure Shiori is taking care of herself, such as when she scolds Shiori for overworking and catching a cold.[14] Akira appreciates the calm she feels from spending time with Shiori, and she feels comfortable expressing her emotions in a way she often cannot as the king.[15] However, this doesn't mean that she can't be strict with Shiori in order to get her to improve, and she often uses tough love, as she feels that babying Shiori would be disrespectful to her strength.[16]

Liu Mei Fan[]

When they first met, Akira did not want to appoint Mei Fan as an Edel because Mei Fan did not understand the responsibilities that came with an Edel past supporting Akira. However, after seeing how passionate Mei Fan can be, Akira and Michiru realized that, if Mei Fan did learn to embody the ideals required of an Edel, she would be an unparalleled addition to Siegfeld's student council. So, they appoint her Frau Rubin. Akira sees her own intensity in Mei Fan[17], and she greatly respects Mei Fan's determination.[18] She enjoys competing with Mei Fan and seeing Mei Fan improve, even if Mei Fan has yet to catch up to her level.[19] Akira sees both value and flaw in Mei Fan's excessive compassion. In Siegfeld General Hospital High-Class Prescription, Akira criticizes her for not believing in Shiori's strength and allowing her to get better more independently, but she also acknowledges that Mei Fan going out of her way to attend to Shiori made the Edels bond more as a group.[20]

Yachiyo Tsuruhime[]

Akira sees a lot of potential in Yachiyo from the beginning; she casts Yachiyo as the Earth Goddess, a role Akira considers to be very important and to require a lot of skill[21], when they perform Elysion and seems to have been impressed by Yachiyo's performance.[22] Akira grows even more impressed with Yachiyo when she sees how imaginative Yachiyo is, saying that Yachiyo's ability to imagine herself in a different reality is necessary for a Stage Girl to have and that she sees her younger self in Yachiyo.[23] She sees Yachiyo as someone who could succeed her as Frau Platin.[24] Akira guides Yachiyo in a hands-off way, putting Yachiyo in situations that challenge her in order to have her learn more about being a Stage Girl and having her navigate them independently.[25] Yachiyo is privy to information about Akira that Akira tries to obscure, such as her past in figure skating[26] and her eagerness to try Frontier's Ultra Spicy Curry[27], to Akira's annoyance.

Maya Tendo[]

As Tendo Maya is the top of the 99th class of Seisho Music Academy, Akira sees Maya as a worthy rival even if they have a different approach to performance.[28] They have been rival since junior high. They faced off against each other as first years at that year's Performance Festival.[29]

Karen Aijo[]

Akira initially takes little interest in Karen, although Akira is marveled at Karen after Karen intervenes to save Maya after Akira manages to corner her. Akira comments that it's interesting to see the other stage girls of the Seisho Academy to be outstanding, stating that she initially thought no one would come close to Maya.[30]
