Kei used to attend a famous high school with aspirations of one day becoming a doctor like his parents, but he stopped for a term due to certain reasons and is now studying part-time. While his journey had become more difficult, it was still possible to get back on track. However, after meeting many different types of people that he had not previously encountered and realizing that there was so much in the world that he did not know, he began to question what future he truly desired.
After receiving a prize from a city-wide competition for a short story that he wrote, he was asked by Yagihara, the president of a music production, to accompany their band on their upcoming tour and write a report about the event. The band was Kachoufuugetsu, which once performed on the big stage. Its leader Korekiyo is quite a peculiar fellow and talked at length about how music was pointless and good for nothing. Even though Kei was perplexed about Korekiyo, he was taken away by the band’s music when he heard it for the first time.
A few days later after that memorable first live, Kei found out that they were disbanding. Unable to accept the sudden news, he approached Korekiyo many times to convince him to change his mind, but no argument could sway him. Instead, Korekiyo asked him:
He was born into a line of doctors beginning with his grandfather, and studies earnestly to meet the expectations that he becomes one himself. His high school was one of the most elite in his region, but due to unforeseen developments, he dropped out. He currently attends part-time school, while studying on his own to enroll into a medical college.
The current coursework at school contributes little to his studies he will need to enter college, but he enjoys the non-discriminatory environment of part-time high school.
As if dropping out of the usual high school rat race wasn’t enough, he has started to doubt whether he will continue his efforts to be a doctor and worries he will disappoint yet again.
While appearing to be a diligent person, deep down he really may not be. A somewhat lost and confused youth.
A student the same age as Kei. Korekiyo Hanai’s younger sister. Vocalist. Albino.
She lives in Hokkaido, and after officially dropping out of school after extended truancy, she met Kei when visiting her brother. She gets along well with her brother, and is a talented vocalist, but shows little interest in pursuing music in any way.
At first glance her appearance is one of striking beauty, but the more people appraise her, the less ”normal” she looks, which affects her self-esteem.
Strange by nature, although in a different way than her brother, her peculiar mannerisms and thought processes make for awkward interactions with others.
Bassist for Kacho-Fugetsu. Bass/chorus. Her skills exceed even her good looks.
She loves music, and playing in a band, and picks at her bass whenever she has a free moment. Yet, she’s aloof to almost everything else and tends to doze off unreliably when things get boring or complicated.
Little of her past before the band is known. Certain things such as her luxurious condo despite having little income adds an element of mystery to her personal life.
