Saddistic evilly sweet Twisted Prince-sama of REVANCE
Iori is the “Perfect Prince” of the group. He is the “right hand man/second in command” to Kyohei specially when it comes to reeling in the fans and make them go nuts over them. So his main role in the group is fan service–sweet talkin, smiling and winking at the girls to make them fall hard for them–him. He is also like the Mother-hen a VERY stict mom that is of the group–making sure Taka eats his meal..at least once, keeps the kids in line(Nagi usually) and so on.
Gah…Iori…I did not expect to even like this guy…but ♥(｡￫v￩｡)♥
Ah gosh….when I saw about his profile…..look wise…he is Ichi’s type…I mean..come on he looks like Tokiya from uta pri (*￣▽￣*)ブ….so I kept on pushing him towards Ichi…but as fate would have it…I fell for him…evil prince and all so I gave Ichi Kota and I get Iori. (￣ε￣*)
Actually, I’ve posted it in my tumblr account on how this evil prince ‘Seduced’–yes SEDUCED…. me into buying his story
Me: Yosh! I’m going to save money for Takashi’s Sequel stories (๑•̀ㅁ•́ฅ)
Iori: oh? Are you now?
Me:…please don’t bother me Iori..go on…shoo
Iori: hmm..is that what you really want?
Iori: fine. I’ll just relax here then.
Me: what are you—!!!
Ok..so for the main plot of Iori’s story, Yui (I named my MC Yui ๑乛◡乛๑ ) suggested to have a love letter style kind of song so Kyohei orders Iori to ‘take care’ of it much to Iori’s irritation. So Iori and Yui needed to write the lyrics TOGETHER as to form or feel a chemistry within the lyrics. In the begining, Iori pushes the Yui away and doesn’t really give a damn about her work…or helped her like Kyohei said he should.(;¬_¬) Yui thought that Iori really don’t see her potential and use to the group–and honestly..she does too…she is a Script Writer not a Lyricist damn it! But she doesn’t give up there, she steel herself and made her first draft of the song. She shows it to Iori and surprisingly, he approves it and told her to show it later to Kyohei. Bad news though, Kyohei noticed that the
evil prince didn’t helped writing it like he should…therefore, the song didn’t quite fit in the theme. Having no other choice, Iori drags Yui to his rest house so that they both could clear their mind mostly his..since he is like 70% pissed off whenever Yui approaches him.
Anyway, in his rest house they did manage to collab on the lyrics and while there, Iori seem to relax more and be gentle with Yui, given that he also realize that being mad at her won’t really bring Ryo back or help REVANCE. And so, they managed to finish the song! ﾟ･✿ヾ╲(｡◕‿◕｡)╱✿･ﾟBut trouble brews when Iori’s dad keeps on pestering him about a marriage interview—which turn out to be with the daughter of the main sponsor of the 24 hour show they are being aired on for the promotion/premier of their new album.
Long story short, Iori’s route was the typical prince idol thingy wherein the guy is forced in a marriage interview and the girl gets attacked by fangirls. The only difference is that Iori has a deep hatred for women, so when Yui planned to save Iori from being banned from the show–due to him ditching the interview to save her from the fangirl attack…and showing his “true”
evil self to them..thus spreading more scandalous rumor, Iori ignored her. Because her plan was to “sell” out her body–sleep with one of the sponsor/director of the show so that they could lift Iori’s banned from it, without Iori’s knowledge of course that it is for him. ＼（＠￣∇￣＠）／
But of course, since this is not a Rejet product–and therefore…no Bad End, when the creepy dude attacks Yui, the whole scene was live broadcast throughout the whole country making the show cut to commercial due to it and Iori figures out that Yui was doing it for his sake, and like the prince that he is, comes to her rescue. In the end, Iori’s banned was lifted… or rather, the fans demanded for him–even the girls who attacked Yui and spread nasty rumors about Iori being an evil prince. Oh! and when Iori confessed to Yui..this is what he has to say.
Well its been a few months since Yui became a loving? couple—though this is what Taka has to say to their relationship.
Anywho, Yui’s role as their lyricist is going smoothly though Iori still points out her mistakes from time to time though I think he just do that cause he wants to mess with her—that and I think he gets jelly when the guys praise her for her work.｡･ﾟ･(ﾉ∀｀)･ﾟ･｡
Hmm…well nothing much about the whole story xept Iori’s whole family issues—not that that ain’t important..but…..meh~~ （ ･`ω･´)
As we all know, his father keeps on forcing him to marriage so that he could inherit the company and quit his “hobby” of being an Idol. Oh yea! forgot to mention that he has a time limit on when he could still be an idol…he promised his dad that this whole charade thing will end once he reach 30. But of course Iori is a huge part of REVANCE and vice versa. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫･*:.｡. .｡.:*･ So having accepted that Iori and Yui are together, his father then announced something shocking that drive Iori into an edge on having to leave the group. Yui though shows her support and tells him that REVANCE won’t be REVANCE without him in it. ｀ｨ(´∀｀∩
Anyway, thanks to Yui’s script, they manged to pull off the whole scandal and said that it was all part of the upcoming show. As for Iori’s father, he has come to terms with him and Yui then tells the both of them to be honest and tells Iori that his father WAS doing something good for Iori since his father knows that being in the entertainment business is a harsh world and that your future is not set in stone—one day your famous, next day your nobody. That was the reason why he was bent on having Iori take over the company, since there he will have a clear future a head of him.
Well…..story wasn’t bad…but…it was not really good either…haha anyway, at least I got to see a dere2 side of Iori….well the dreiest he could get anyway. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫･*:.｡. .｡.:*･
His POV made the deciding blow that made me fall hard for him. It shows the reason on why he was such a pissed off prince and tend to vent it out on Yui due to her being the replacement of Ryo. The truth is that he actually blames himself for Ryo’s disappearance from the group and doesn’t really know what to do about it…or his current situation wherein he has to collab with Yui for the song, since he is neither the composer or the lyricist of the group–he ain’t even the producer so he isn’t sure how he could really support Yui.o(≧∇≦o)
His POV also shows his will of protecting Yui when she is in trouble once he starts warming up to her. This story also showcase his sweetness and care for Yui that’s its sooooooo worth it.☆*･゜ﾟ･*\(^O^)/*･゜ﾟ･*☆
Oh GOSH Ioriiiiiiiiiii I really don’t want to fall for him…But I did…and dang I liked It. Yes he is saddistic, and yes, he might treat the Yui crappy from time to time…but He is sweet underneath all that. Its just how he shows his affection. And he really thinks about the welfare of Yui and how he could protect her from the harsh elements of the entertainment world—cough—destructive fan girl—cough.(☄ฺ◣д◢)☄ฺ
He might say harsh things but it is to help Yui grow and make her strong for the world she wants to be in..and also for her to be able to stand by Iori’s side. Once they got together, Iori is also like Yui to speak her mind and not keep things bottled up inside since he will not know what’s bothering her and therefore he will not be able to help or support her.
Another thing I liked about this route too is that the heroine actually felt like a professional….unlike in Kota’s route…which I almost flipped tables for since she was like daydreaming 70-85% of the time. Yes I know daydreaming helps in writing…..I mostly do it to..but…to do that almost 24/7 or whenever opportunity strikes…..there is no wonder Kota comments on this trait of hers even in the other guys’ route.(◕‿◕✿)
Anyway, I liked the MC’s attitude here…yes she seems like a push over..but she does mean well..and she did kept her end of the bargain. And it also made me see just how value of a member she could be…not just by supporting the guy..but proving herself worthy of being WITH the band—be it being their Lyricist or their Screen Play Writer.
