If you guys are going to become legends, then we’ll be the trigger.

Gaku Yaotome

Gaku Yaotome (八乙女 楽, Yaotome Gaku) is rough-spoken and has a fairly intimidating aura about him, so there are a lot of rumors swirling around about how nasty the president of Yaotome Pro’s son must be. For his fans, he’s the sexy guy they want to embrace them the most.

In reality, Gaku is very honest and upright in his beliefs and actions, and is probably the member of TRIGGER hurt the most by the variety of awful rumors swirling around about them. Despite, or maybe because of, his own family situation, Gaku highly values family connections.

Much of his stuff with the ladies is also simply for show or publicity; he’s rather chaste in his actions despite how forward he is, and wouldn’t try to woo a woman unless he absolutely loved her.

  • Sorry we've kept you waiting. Part 3 is a solid story that's been prepared to meet everyone's expectations, so I'd like for you to please look forward to it. I've been having back-and-forths with the other CVs through a LINE group, but everyone's totally hooked on Part 3! (LOL) I want to read the continuation as soon as possible, and record it, too!


  • I seriously love the person known as Gaku, so my feelings for him are to "Run as you are!". I really love the Yaotome Gaku who's giving Yaotome Gaku his all.


  • Gaku likes collecting bath powders.[3]
  • He has his driver’s licence and enjoys driving around.[4]
  • He learnt how to play the guitar from a friend in a band, for his role in a drama.[5]
  • When Gaku gets depressed, he’ll suddenly start sending out riddles and things.[6]
  • Gaku definitely has a crush on Tsumugi.[7]
