Yuta Ashu is an idol under Brave Entertainment and a member of the unit THRIVE. He is voiced by Natsuki Hanae.
PersonalityHe’s completely naive. A refreshing character who’s kind and goes at his own pace. He’s sociable and can get along well with anyone. He has absolutely no sense of direction and is a little bit of an airhead.
|About the next live, I was thinking of preparing a special corner where everyone shows off their special skills.|
|Special skills? That's great, sounds interesting!|
|......It'd probably be better than just doing a talk.|
|But aren't special skills too big of a selection? Since we're doing a live, we'll have to select something exciting.|
|That's true, what should...... I do?|
|Umm, Yuta-kun played drums before.|
|Yeah, yeah! It was hard, but practicing and the real thing was fun ♪|
|In that case, how about playing the drums this time? It was really popular and even Yashamaru-san said he wanted you to do it once more.|
|Drums, huh...... Yeah, that's probably good!|
But if I do it, it can't be the same as the other time, right?
|That's true. If you'd like a challenge, I think it'd be good to increase the difficulty than before.|
However, you still have your normal schedule, so if practice would be a burden, then we can do a different—
|Nah, it'll be fine! I'll do it! I want to do it!|
|Fufu, that's great. But you still have time, so it's fine if you want to think about it a little more and tell me.|
|Mumu, I'll probably worry if you say it like that. If I end up not doing it well, I'll look so uncool......|
|Isn't it fine, playing drums. Don't worry about unnecessary things, you can do it.|
|Ehh! What, what, did Gouchin just praise me a lot right now!?|
|Ah? It's not like I was praising you. I just said you'd be able to do it.|
|And even if you can't, it's just something to keep doing until you can.|
|Uwaan, even though he finally praised me~!|
|But the practice is harder than learning a useless skill, so wouldn't learning drums be good in the long run?|
|Yeah. If it's drums, it's not like it would end at just this time.|
For us, it should be more and more important to us musically from now on. That's why it'd be good for all of us to learn how to play instruments.
|That means my drums will be useful for the future of THRIVE?|
|That's how it is.|
|I see......! In that case, THRIVE will definitely become even cooler than now!|
|Fu, well it's not like it'd get worse.|
|Ehehe. Well then, everyone should do a session together! Gouchin can do guitar, KenKen is piano and for me, I'll do the drums~......|
|Ashu, that's a good idea.|
|Right, right? A THRIVE that can even be a band is already invincible!|
|If we can expand what we can show, we'll probably find new ways to charm others.|
|Yeah......! I'm kind of on fire right now! Tsubasa-chan, I'll do my best at the drums.|
|I got it. Yashamaru-san asked if you would like for us to call a drum instructor?|
|Please do! I'll probably progress quickly if a teacher is there.|
|Then I'll call one. However...... It seems like they're quite strict, so is it okay?|
|Eh, does that mean they'll hit me......!?|
|Like hell that would happen.|
|That's good~ I thought it'd be a teacher who's like Gouchin.|
|You're trying to make me angry.|
|Wawa, it was a joke, a joke~!|
|Geez, do things seriously.|
|Yeah! I'll work hard to play the drums coolly!|
|Okay. I'll also support you, so let's work hard together!|
|—It's finally the first day of lessons.|
|Yeah! I'll become so good at it that I'll surprise Gouchin and KenKen~!|
|Yuta-kun is good at dancing, so your sense of rhythm is good, I'm sure you'll progress right away.|
|Ehehe, thanks! If I can do the drums well, it'll definitely be cool.|
I have to work hard so I don't hold those two back.
|I'll also support you as much as I can, so if you have any requests, please ask me for anything.|
|Ah, seems like the teacher is here.|
|Drum Instructor||Good morning. Let's do well today.|
|Yes, please take care of me!|
|Drum Instructor||Then, Ashu-kun has experience with drums?|
|Umm, I did it once during a live before, but that time was mostly self study.|
|Drum Instructor||I understand. The song you're doing during this live is quite difficult and there isn't much time, so I think practice will be rough.|
|It'll be fine! I'll work hard because I definitely want to get good at it!|
|Drum Instructor||I see. Then let's hurry up and start.|
|Drum Instructor||That part, do it once more.|
|Drum Instructor||The stick! You're not gripping them tightly!|
S, sorry. I ended up dropping the sticks...... Ehehe.
Okay, let's do the next.
|(The teacher seems a little agitating. I wonder if Yuta-kun is fine.)|
|Drum Instructor||You're putting in too much strength. I already told you that you can't put it all your strength. Use your wrists properly.|
|Okay! Umm, like...... this? Huh huh?|
|Drum Instructor||......Hah, stop for a bit.|
|Drum Instructor||Look, Yuta-kun. Do you really want to do this?|
|Ehh!? I, I do!|
Let's take a short break.
|Yuta-kun, you worked hard. Have some water.|
|Are you getting the hang of it?|
|Ummm, I wonder...... It's been a while, so it should be coming back, but I'm having a hard time.|
I might be really close to grasping it though.
|Drum Instructor||Hold on, why are you saying such carefree things?|
|Drum Instructor||I've thought this for a while, but you don't feel nervous at all.|
Even if I'm wrong, you're so silly that I don't think you really want to do this.
|I, I'm sorry. But that's not true......!|
|Drum Instructor||Even if you say that......|
|Umm, there's a misunderstanding. Yuta-kun isn't the type of person to take practice lightly.|
|Drum Instructor||I understand that from your place, you want to protect your artists, but I was asked to do this and have to bring him up to a higher level than he is now.|
It'll be troublesome if he does practice like this.
|Tsubasa-chan, it'll be okay. Hehe...... I'm sorry for making you worried, okay?|
|Drum Instructor||Look, he's already being silly again.|
|Drum Instructor||If you're going to do this halfheartedly, then it'd be better not to do it at all.|
Let's stop practice for today.
|......Eh, wait a minute!|
|Drum Instructor||Nice job today.|
