The unit's kind and gentle moodmaker!

Profile[edit | hide | hide all]

Tsubasa is a former pilot. Due to a certain incident, he had no choice but to give up being a pilot. He became an idol in search of new sights to see. With a soft and gentle personality, he regularly plays mediator for the often antagonistic Teru and Kaoru. Tsubasa oozes sincerity and happiness, so much that one could say he resembles a big dog¹.

Resume[edit | hide]

Reasons for Becoming an Idol
I had no choice but to give up my dreams of being a pilot... That was when I was scouted.
Personal Motto
The sky leads to tomorrow.
Comments for the Future
Even when I was a pilot, even when I was so small I played with model planes, even now... My motives haven’t ever really changed... All I want is to see those sights from high above, that’s all.
Comments about Unit Members
I couldn’t ask for better senpais than Teru-san and Kaoru-san. The two of them would give their lives to follow the path they believe in, yet they both have a part of themself they’d never give up... They’re so alike, so why do they squabble all the time?

2016
Character Commu
We always hold a birthday party for my little brother every year, but it's kind of embarrassing if you're the one everyone is celebrating. Please let us celebrate your birthday when it arrives, Producer.


Character Commu
My dad was busy when I was a child, so I didn't have many birthdays where my whole family was there... That's why seeing everyone celebrate my birthday makes me really happy!
I see... Then we'll just have to party hard to make up for all those times! Come on! We got some special cake and chicken prepared for a glutton like yourself, Tsubasa!
Here is a special smoothie from me. I made this blend with the intent of improving your digestion. I cannot stand how much you eat... but I will let that slide for today.


2017
Character Commu
Having people outside of my family celebrate my birthday every year feels nice. Although you're already like a family, Producer-san.


Character Commu
You two want to celebrate my birthday? Well, then, I ask that you two don't fight and get along for just this one day, okay? That would make me the happiest.
Dang... We got a really rough birthday wish to fulfill. Well, it's Tsubasa's wish so how about we let bygones be bygones just for this one day?
Hmph. Well, I suppose we can have one day of peace out of the year. How do you suppose we get along for the day? Shall we enjoy a cup of tea together?


2018
Character Commu
Thank you for celebrating my birthday! Today has become even more special because of it, Producer. Will you...celebrate my birthday again next year?


Character Commu
To think that the two of you came up with such a wonderful surprise party together... You two get along well, don't you?
This guy kept rejecting all my ideas! I had to grit my teeth and settled for making this surprise party for you!
It's because you kept spouting unrealistic proposals that I rejected them. Tell me, who's the one we have to thank for all the party food and presents all here and accounted for, hm?


2019
Character Commu
Wah!... Thank you so much for celebrating my Birthday with me!
That's such a huge present! Producer, can I open it here?


Character Commu
I was really looking forward to my birthday! Today is the day you two get along to celebrate for me! Which makes it a special day!
Not exactly... Well, we had our disagreements here and there, but I'm glad we somehow managed to get everything done. I had to compromise with him since he said we didn't have the time.
I suppose this is what happens when we discuss things putting our personalities aside. Such a bother only comes once a year. Since it's your special day, I can endure it somehow.


2020
Character Commu
I'm probably a bit too old to get so excited on my Birthday but.... to be honest, having Producer and everyone at the office celebrate with me makes me really happy.


Character Commu
Good morning! Teru-san, Kaoru-san, I've been looking forward to the party you were preparing for me!
Haha, so much for a surprise...well, as long as we get to spend the time with you in such a great mood, it's alright!
We've prepared a large quantity of cakes and dishes for you, but make sure to burn off all the extra calories. Once the party's over, give your stomach a rest. Then we'll start lessons

Character Commu
Good morning, Producer.
Good morning.

Today's the day we finally meet them... This still feels so weird to me.
Even if it's just for TV, I can't really imagine being in a unit with people that aren't Teru-san or Kaoru-san...

You can do it!

Thank you!
Everything about this job is new to me, but...
I'll do my best to contribute!

I'm Kashiwagi Tsubasa, from 315 Production! I've been appointed as the leader and center of our unit.
We'll only be together for a short period of time, but I'm looking forward to working with you!

Aloof idol ............Mmhmm.
Friendly idol Hey, you could at least try to introduce yourself!
...It's nice to meet you, Kashiwagi-san!

Character Commu

Again, I look forward to working with you two.
This is my first time being a leader, but I'll do my best!

Friendly idol Me too! I'm excited to be in the same unit as you, Kashiwagi-san.
Aloof idol ...Mmhmm.

(T-these two are like night and day... Will they be alright...?)

Well then, let's get started with practice.

Aloof idol It looks crazy to me, so I'm just tellin' it like it is... Can we be done with this?
Friendly idol No, we can't!
What you said isn't the problem, it's your attitude that is!
Um... Calm down, you two...
I'm sorry, Producer... I couldn't settle them down.
Gives Tsubasa some words of encouragement

...Thank you.
As a leader, I need to be more assertive!

Character Commu
...Okay... let's wrap up our second day of practice here.
Friendly idol Alright! I learned a ton today. I'll see you again tomorrow!
Aloof idol Hey... But we didn't get anywhere.
Our dance was all outta sync...
Fufu. Every group is like that in the beginning. You shouldn't worry about...
Aloof idol ...What are you smiling for?
...Huh?
Aloof idol It's like you're always in the clouds. I don't get it. You think this is fun or something?
Of course it's fun. I love being on stage as an idol, and I love our lessons too...
Aloof idol Hm...
I guess DRAMATIC STARS must be a real happy-go-lucky unit.
...?! What do you mean by that...?
Aloof idol Nothin' really.
Just figured y'all must think you're here for fun and games or something.

......There's not a single person in DRAMATIC STARS who thinks this is a game.
Not a single one of us.

Oh...

I... I'm sorry about that...
I need to go cool down.

Character Commu
Sigh...
Order whatever you like.

...Thank you for taking me out for food, Producer.
I know it wasn't very mature of me to leave the studio out of anger...
But I was just so frustrated...
I hope you won't mind if take you up on this offer.

I want this, and this, and this...
And everything from this row to that row!

...Mmm... That thick-cut steak was great. Thank you for the food.
And now, to top it all off with sushi...
Chomp.
Rrk!

...I forgot to ask for no wasabi... I can't eat wasabi at all...
Ahaha... I really am still a kid. Can't even handle wasabi.
...But the fact that I can let myself be a kid around other people now...
That makes me happy.
If something like this happened to me in the past...
I think I would've just wanted to be alone instead.

Character Commu

By "the past," I mean when I gave up on my dreams of becoming a pilot.
...It's a little embarrassing to share this, but up until that point,
I'd never gone through a major failure before.
My parents and everyone else I knew—they all had the impression that I could do well at anything.
I didn't have any reason to doubt them, either.
But, during the first flight of my dreams...

...When that happened, there was just no way I could keep a smile on my face anymore.
So I tried to hide by retreating to the terminal. And that's where I moped, all by myself.
...Now that I'm an idol, I can't hide away like that anymore. Just look at us.

No matter what side of me comes out, I know that you... that Teru-san, and Kaoru-san...
You'll all tell me that it's okay, and help me forward...
So, you could say I'm pretty spoiled.
...If Kaoru-san were here, he might say that I've become "corrupted." Fufu.

Character Commu

Producer. Thank you for listening to me yesterday.
I ate a lot, so I'm brimming with energy now.
I think I can express myself properly this time.

Good morning!
Before we start practice today, would you mind if I borrowed a little of your time?
I'd like to have you reevaluate what you said yesterday.

Aloof idol Reevaluate? ...What, are you gonna make those other guys come here?

I'm an idol. How I perform on stage is everything to me.
So this is the only way I can prove myself to you.

...Excuse me, would you play this on the equipment?

Please enjoy this song.
DRIVE A LIVE.

Character Commu
...Huff... huff...
Friendly idol W... wow.... This is what DRAMATIC STARS's Kashiwagi-san can do...!
Aloof idol ......

...Huff, puff...
Do you need more convincing?

Aloof idol No, I'm sorry for being so rude.
I totally thought DRAMATIC STARS was just some gimmicky idol unit.
I mean, a former pilot, former lawyer, and former doctor? Makes no sense to me.
So I assumed you were all just messing around, and I lashed out at you for it...
We're supposed to be working as a team... I'm sorry about all that.

I'll always be a former pilot. That's never going to change.
But it's my teammates and my fans that make me into an idol today.

Character Commu

I'm always thinking about the people who'll smile when they hear me sing or watch me dance.
Thinking about them makes me happy, too. It gives me the motivation to meet their expectations...
So I guess that's why I'm always smiling.
Oh, yeah!
Why don't you two give it a try?
Close your eyes, and imagine an audience filled with beaming faces...

See, doesn't that bring a smile to your face?

Friendly idol ...Yes! Just the thought of it fills me with joy.
Aloof idol ...I wanna make it a reality.

Fufu, it looks like we're finally on the same page.
So, let me say this again—I look forward to working with you two!

Character Commu

It's finally the big day.
The three of us are going to make our dreams come true!

Friendly idol Yes! Let's go, leader.
Aloof idol The seats are packed... We're gonna put a smile on all of their faces.

Producer. You had to deal with a pretty embarrassing side of myself this time.
So to make up for it, I'll show you exactly how cool I can be up on stage.
I'll prove to you that Kashiwagi Tsubasa, the idol you debuted,
is the coolest idol out there.
So don't take your eyes off me. Not even for a second.

I can't wait.

Thank you...!
Well then, here I go!

Tsubasa heads onto the stage.
Hey there, everyone! Our name is...

Character Commu

I'm finally back!
...Phew, there sure is no place like home...
Thank you for giving me this amazing opportunity, Producer.
I know I've said this a million times, but...
I'm glad I can work with you!

Same here!
Welcome back, Tsubasa! Glad you made it back safe.

Teru-san! And Kaoru-san, too!
Yay...! I'm back!

Judging from your attitude, I take it that the concert went well?
Very! ...I had to get a bunch of help from Producer, though.
A bunch...? If I knew you were struggling, I would've pitched in to help too.
It's for the better that you didn't. You'd just make a pointless mess out of any situation.
What was that?!
Teru and Kaoru begin quibbling.

Hahaha! Come on, you two, no fighting!

(Fufu. Let's keep doing the best we can—together!)
