- "This world isn’t one where you can treat life as one big picnic."
- ―Shinonome Akito
Shinonome Akito (東雲彰人) is a first year student at Kamiyama High School. He's part of the street music group Vivid BAD SQUAD.
Akito has been a street musician since middle school. He looks up to Shiraishi An's father, who was a street musician as well and keeps on training to surpass them.
He used to sing together with Touya under the name "BAD DOGS" before joining with An and Kohane to become Vivid BAD SQUAD.
Akito has olive colored eyes and messy orange colored hair with a yellow streaks and fair skin. He wears a pale yellow hoodie underneath a black and inside bright yellow jacket. He wears black training pants, with two white stripes on the sides, alongside a red checkered jacket tied onto his waist. He has black and white shoes on, with blue undertones and yellow shoelaces.
Akito appears to be an easy-going guy at first. However, his personality drastically changes when he's dancing, becoming a hot-blooded and passionate person.
A list of characters Akito interacts with in the game.
Azusawa Kohane: Fellow group member. Akito saw her as a complete newbie who had no idea what she was getting into, but he changed his mind after seeing her and An’s performance later on.
Shiraishi An: Fellow group member who he's known since middle school. They're rivals and often clash with each other, making people around them become uncomfortable until someone breaks their fight off.
Aoyagi Touya: Fellow group member and best friend. Akito trusts Touya completely and is aware about his negative attitude towards his father. They see each other as partners and rely on each other when performing.
Shinonome Ena: His older sister. Ena doesn't seem to pay attention to him at all, because she is always so focused on chatting online and never talks about him to her online friends. However, Akito is always there for her and he often talks about her to other people. Despite attending the same school, Ena only attends the night class in comparison to Akito who attends the normal day class.
Tenma Tsukasa: An upperclassman he does not respect. Akito considers him (together with Rui) a weirdo, and seems to enjoy teasing him. After learning more about his and Touya's relationship, Akito mentions that he owes him his thanks for allowing him and Touya to meet.
Akiyama Mizuki: A friend of his sister's. They call him "little brother-kun", much to his chagrin.
