Meet Akira! He has quite the reputation and is known by everyone as the “Bad Wolf.” All the rival school gangs have him on their watch list. Feared by all, even the teachers are afraid to stand up to him. Akira creates a lot of trouble for the disciplinary committee members for never wearing his school uniform properly and loitering around the hallways. He might be a little bit intimidating, but he’s secretly a really sweet guy. Akira wouldn’t give it a second thought to be by your side when you need him. He’s caring, reliable and extremely protective. Akira loves to eat meat and often dreams of meat. He snoozes during class time to time, so you might have to wake him up when the teacher calls on him!
We’ll be uncovering his face closer to the event. There are two more classmate reveals. Who will YOU choose!?
Meet Ryu! Ryu is the Vice President of the Student Council and member of the disciplinary committee. Ryu is a no-nonsense, straight-laced student with high morals. He pays great attention to detail and things rarely go unnoticed under his watch. A stickler for rules, Ryu makes sure that everyone abides by the school’s handbook. Praised by all the teachers, he’s surely someone who will become a top leader one day! You can find him spending his afternoons at the library by the window sill, absorbed in a book. In these moments, he looks very gentle and kind. Ryu never lets go of the things that catch his attention. He is observant, dependable and intelligent.

Meet Yuuto! Yuuto is the Student Council President of the University of Bishounen Cabedons. Liked by all the students and teachers alike, Yuuto is friendly and bubbly. He makes sure that no one is left out. Yuuto loves to eat sweets and shares his candy whenever someone is sad. There is never a dull moment with Yuuto because of his upbeat and happy-go-lucky personality. Yuuto’s smile can make you temporarily forget all your worries and fears. He is kind, affectionate and devoted. Yuuto can be a scatterbrain sometimes but Ryuu, his trustworthy Vice President, keeps him organized.
We’ll be uncovering his face closer to the event. There are three handsome men waiting… Who will YOU choose!?
