Aijima Cecil & Ittoki Otoya are brothers
So there was a misunderstanding of Shining Saotome having 2 sons. Actually Shiny only has 1 son, which is Ittoki Otoya. After reading Cecil’s Memorials in Uta no Prince-sama Repeat, I figured out that Shiny isn’t Cecil’s dad, BUT Cecil’s mother is also Otoya’s mother. Shiny and Otoya both know that the mom went missing from a plane crash in a desert. Well Cecil’s mother was found unconcious in the middle of the desert by Aguna people. Otoya’s mother had memory loss from the accident and didn’t remember anything, only the fact she is Japanese had a somewhat a work place with music. Agunaparesu’s King and Otoya’s mother fell in love and then Cecil was born. Cecil is a little step brother of Otoya’s. That kind of ties up the fact that they sort of look alike, but knowing now whats going on from reading their memorials it all makes sense!
Cecil’s and Otoya’s mom had the same name, so i knew there was somekind of connection. Wacky story they made huh? XD Either way both of them will never find out that they are brothers.
Poor Otoya, his mom is in agunaparesu but she doesnt remember him anymore ;A; but atleast she is still alive! :D Even though in Otoya’s route they tell us that she is dead, cuz thats what they assume from the plane crash accident. But, Otoya and Shiny believe she is still somewhere out there, well Shiny thinks of that more than Otoya, cuz he thinks or knows she is dead. They made both route’s story so confusing but now I think I understand XD
For sure Otoya and Cecil are brothers.
I was waiting for someone who could read the game memorials to finally clear this all up. XD
Though the only thing I have to add is that Kotomi isn’t actually in Anga Palace anymore, she is back in Japan. At least from what I understand. In one of Cecil’s later routes, he says he saw his mother at one of his concerts in Japan after becoming an Idol.
However when I think about Cecil being Otoya’s younger step-brother…
That would mean Cecil would have to be AT LEAST 9 MONTHS TO A YEAR younger than Otoya even during the time in Repeat….Depending how quickly Kotomi got pregnant.
That would make Cecil
FUCKING 16 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER BY THE TIME DEBUT HITS!!
SIX FUCKING TEEN. o___o
….That’s kinda awkward when you think about how Cecil is one of the few in early games to “get laid”. Because in Repeat that would make him at least 14 or younger. That makes Cecil easily the youngest in the game, with the exception of Ai (who will forever remain 15)
I’m glad its confirmed though, I didn’t want to say anything for sure until someone was able to read the memorials. So thanks! 8D
I was reading the debut manga in bed right now and nfadjklsabgjalgk idk why I never caught this before but holy shit so apparently Ren and Masato’s families are the ones that directly caused the Kurosaki Conglomerate to collapse?
When the Jinguuji and Hijirikawa families appeared in the spotlight, it caused a really vicious competition between the three companies and in the end it was the Kurosaki group that ended up self-destructing and falling to ruin. At first I was wondering how that matched up, considering the Jinguuji and Hijirikawa families have had their businesses for a while (Ren’s father, Masato’s grandfather) but then it made sense, considering that Masaomi was the one that usurped power from Masato’s uncle (the first son) and Souichirou became the head of the family after his father’s death and both men were the ones to bring their companies to new heights. It’s just sad that…all three boys ended up caught in the crossfire and suffered from it in different ways.
I really hope they cover at least a bit of this in the weblog books ahhhhhh.
In front of his father, Masato uses “watashi” and “anata,” while normally he uses “ore” and “omae.” Interesting. Says how much of an appearance he’s used to putting on for his father and his father’s intimidation factor.
Oh so I forgot to mention
So there’s a chance that Kaoru might know about Ai (the fact that he’s a robot)
since the professor mentions to Syo that he met and got to know Kaoru when he was going to Saotome Academy’s sister school for medicine during the time he was working on Ai. Though they talked about a lot of things (artificial arms/legs and the like), Kaoru had a particular interest in pacemakers.
Notes on nicknames and the like
-calls everyone by their first names (no honorific)
-calls you by last name—>first name
-calls everyone by their last names (no honorific)
-calls you by last name—>nickname
-calls everyone by [first name]-kun
-I think he goes from calling you [last name]-kun—>[nickname]-chan
-calls S-Class/Otoya by their first names (no honorific)
-calls you by [last name-kun]—>first name
-Masato: Hijirikawa (does call him Masato, like…once in SS)
-calls you by Lady—>Hunny (sometimes calls you by first name)
-calls everyone by their first names
-I think he calls you by your first name from the start and just keeps it
-calls everyone by their first name
-calls you by first name from the start + MY PRINCESS/MY MUSE/etc
So I’m still playing Repeat
while eating breakfast weee~ (well, it’s almost lunch now)
but the reason Masato doesn’t like milk is because when he was little he accidentally drank a cup that was lukewarm (and probably kind of old to boot) so ever since then he’s developed a strong dislike for it. XD
Well, that is until he tries it with some Saotomelon Bread PFFFFFF—
Origins of Satsuki
Thought I should make a stand alone post for this too. 8D;;; The anime hinted at this in the flashbacks but I doubt they’re going to go into detail with how Satsuki came to exist.
When Natsuki was little he used to play the violin (like Syo) instead of the viola like he does now. The reason for this is because his violin teacher, whom he loved very deeply, betrayed him. You remember how Satsuki is very gifted in composing…well, that’s how Natsuki used to be. Natsuki composed a song for for her but she ended up stealing it and passing it off as her own in order to skyrocket herself into popularity. She promptly abandoned him after that. While Natsuki didn’t hold any kind of grudge against her, he didn’t tell his feelings about it to anyone and instead held all the pain and negativity inside, creating Satsuki. “Satsuki” (砂月) is actually the name of the song she stole. It was named from the full moon and white sands he often looked at while he was living abroad (he lived in France for 5 years iirc)
砂月 = Satsuki
砂 = sand
月 = moon
In the game Satsuki tells you that whenever Natsuki takes off his glasses, “his vision blurs and his heart becomes unstable, summoning Satsuki out” (I didn’t catch that part actually and had to get it from here)
Satsuki actually hated Haruka at first because she reminded him a lot of Natsuki’s violin teacher…he’s really really protective of Natsuki. :’(
Hope you don’t mind me reblogging Danielle. I just want a lot of our newbie fans to see this because it makes more sense to watch Episode 6 and know this.
I also realized that right here
Satsuki gets those flashbacks and then gets angry while looking at Haruka which is a throwback to the game when Satsuki tells Haruka that at first she reminded him of that Teacher that betrayed Natsuki as stated above.
I love how the episode showed a lot more than you first realize.
I also love everything about Natsuki and just wanna blab about him. Pardon me.
/crawls into my corner full of Natsuki stuff and swoons alone.
Of course I don’t mind~! But you’re right, it DOES tell a lot more than at first glance, especially if you already know/have an idea of what happened.
Even with all of its flaws, I love this anime so much nnnnnnnnnnnnnngh <33333333333333333333333
Oh, just to elaborate on the whole Tokiya=sadist thing
You’re working in the recording room on Syo’s song and I guess Tokiya noticed your shoulders were tense or something and began giving you a massage. However, I had NO idea wtf was going on except you kept crying out in pain and Tokiya told you to just bear with it (I was just wondering wtf he was doing the whole time)
However, a little while into it, Syo bursts in with that exact question and he’s completely pissed…until he just kind of stands there going “what, a…massage?”
Though I still didn’t know what was going on until Tokiya mentioned the word “tsubo” (I’ve read part of Oyayubi kara Romance) and that’s when it clicked. Well, Tokiya started massaging Syo at that point and he promptly began shrieking in pain. Tokiya just said something about a good reaction and Syo started screeching about how Tokiya’s a demon and you’re just sitting there thinking I know exactly how you feel, Syo-kun!! ;AAAAA;
