His mum wants him to go into business like her at Cyber-Ichi which is safe and pays well, but his farther insists that he does something for a living that he enjoys such as becoming a famous comedian or athlete. After all he says, "We only have one life, so make it count son!".

Weaknesses: Cooking, maths, can't swim (scared of water), gets drunk quickly, knows jack about his own home countries history, has a low immune system meaning he gets ill constantly and has been known to faint at the sight of large amounts of blood.
Brought up by his parents Akio and Haruka Ritsu in the poorest district in Nikawa (Noukonku) Sachiyo and his sister Ayaka were raised under tough conditions for four years before his mother successfully got a job at Cyber-Ichi.
For a time they were happy, they had moved into a nice neighbourhood in Sakiyama with friendly and caring neighbours. And although the new house they were living in was cramped it was a true home for them. Although Sachiyo took some time getting used to the new house as he used to live next door to his best friend Yoko Umeko.
A year later Sachiyo would almost drown in a river after failing to balance on the edge of a bridge. Rescued by his sister, he has since been terrified of water and even refused to learn how to swim out of fear, a fear that although his family tried to combat decided to respect and not force him into learning.
Instead of swimming, Sachiyo took up running and other sports that he became incredibly good at, decreasing the amount of time it took him to run a circuit every time. He continued to do this for six years and during this time was introduced by his father to late night stand-up comedy. Despite being held in a back alley bar back in Sakiyama, Sachiyo got to see Yoko again there and watch numerous acts (some even sober) that helped shape his comedy today. Even convincing him to take up drama in which he got the main role several times in school.
Another six years passed and Sachiyo continued to do well in the above fields, even joining the track team and running the drama club. His sister Ayaka was proving to be a diamond in the rough as well. She was the top of her class every year, the most popular girl at school and a fine shot with a bow (even teaching Sachiyo how to use one). However the night before she would leave to become a doctor abroad she was killed in a car accident during a leaver’s party. Stricken with grief the parents tried to stay strong, but his mother would constantly blame Sachiyo’s farther for Ayaka’s death, saying that "If you hadn't let her go to that stupid party she would still be here!" Both unable to cope left one another a year later, but allowed Sachiyo to spend time with each of them. Two weeks with his dad Akio in their old home, and two weeks in his mum's new penthouse thanks to her recent promotion (manager) at Cyber-Ichi.
Sachiyo tried to continue his life normally, living it for his sister that couldn’t, but at the same time unsure of what he wanted to do in life. Then he met Furukawa Akinobu. Despite their relationship being sometimes rocky, these two completely opposite boys became close friends in no time. Aki alongside Yoko, Hiraga Rise and eventually Sachiyo’s new pet dog Chips helped him stop feeling sorry for himself and instead live his own life.
Despite being happy now, Sachiyo’s grades had become so poor that he sadly had to leave and go to Europe so as to improve them and convince his mum he was fit for university with his new friends. After a year of traveling all over Europe and even learning the basics of a few new languages (English, French and German), he has finally returned, just in time to go to university after just scraping the marks needed.
What adventures wait for him now? Time will only tell once he steps off the plane...
|| -Support- ||
Akio Ritsu (Farther): A fun loving, immature and relaxed farther, Akio unlike his son Sachiyo has always been bad at telling comedy, but has always excelled at cheering people up and acting more like an older brother or friend than a farther. If only this could pay the bills though. Akio has jumped from job to job as a result of being too relaxed and failing at reasonability. He is also incredibly messy and although he tries to stay strong in front of Sachiyo he still loves and misses his ex-wife greatly to a point that Sachiyo has found him crying at times when he thought he wasn't around. When Sachiyo has tried approaching him about this he's always pretends otherwise and changes the subject.
Akio has brown eyes, slightly long black spiky hair and a small goatee on his chin. He is reasonably built and tends to wear a white non tucked in t-shirt with a red thunder bolt on it, dark blue jeans and converses that further point out his relaxed nature.
Haruka Ritsu (Mother): In reality Haruka is kind and concerning, but is seen by her co-workers at Cyber-Ichi as a strict and relentless money maker who made her way to the top of the business ladder from nothing. As a result though Sachiyo hardly ever sees her and when he does it's only for an hour or two before she dashes off to her next important meeting. He's often showered in gifts by her due to her guilt but he doesn't want the next version of his MP3 player, he just wants to spend time with her.
She has long blond hair that she keeps tied back and is often seen with glasses on her face and an expensive grey suit covering her whole body, thus showing that she is both important and busy.
Ayaka Ritsu (Deceased sister): Ayaka was the older sister of Sachiyo who died two years ago in a car accident when she went out for a party one night. Although gone, Sachiyo always remembers her as a kind and loving person who always looked out for others and even taught him to use a bow. Sachiyo has since vowed to live the life she will never have.
When she was alive she had long blond hair that she kept tied back and was often seen in her pink jogging uniform.
Yoko Umeko (Childhood friend): Once the timid and shy childhood friend, Yoko has since left her comfort zone since Sachiyo has been away, thanks to Aki and Rise’s help, becoming a much more confident and stronger young woman.
Yoko is skinny, five foot tall and is two years younger than Sachiyo who she has been close friends with since they were 3. She has always lived in the poorest district in Nikawa which shows as she's often seen in dirty clothes and appears with bruises on her body as a result of her rough surroundings and gangs. Even with this in mind however she is surprisingly strong willed and Sachiyo has never seen her cry because of this. Sure she's been upset, but she's also remained strong so as to not worry others. She's often found gardening, cooking or painting which she is incredible gifted at.
Yoko wears round orange glasses over her wide blue eyes. She has long brown, slightly curly hair that reaches the back of her neck and holds a black, white dotted hair band which was given to her on her sixth birthday by Sachiyo (surprisingly it still fits). She used to be seen only in her battered school uniform as that was once all she owned. However, thanks to Sachiyo and Aki they managed to buy her a whole new wardrobe, resulting in a brown cardigan that goes over a smart looking green dress, though she also has other beautiful black and red dresses she wears on special occasions.
Kuno Masaru (Mothers new boyfriend): Although not an important part of Sachiyo's life, Kuno is now part of his mother's life as a result of moving in with her. Kuno would like to get closer to Sachiyo, but knows nothing about teenagers. As a result he often comes across sounding like a complete dork saying things like "Wuz up bruth?" and "Wicked". He doesn't want to replace Sachiyo’s farther either, he just doesn't want they to be any tension between the two. Sachiyo understands this, but it will take him a little longer to get used to the fact that someone else other than his farther is seeing his mother.
Kuno has brown hair that makes one massive spike at the top of his hair. He also has green eyes that he hides behind his glasses and is often seen in a white shirt with a waistcoat on top and grey trousers.
Chips (Family pet): The most recent member to the family, Chips was bought by Sachiyo in order to keep him company when his mother and/or father was out.
Chips is a loveable and friendly dog, but he is also known to be mischievous as he loves to play pranks on people, especially on Sachiyo!
He is now a two year old golden retriever with a red handkerchief around his neck with white star pattern scattered on it.
