Gaku YaotomePart 2 - Chapter 9.3 What Lies in our Hearts


Gaku Yaotome (八乙女楽(やおとめがく)) 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.

FOR GAKU: 僕は非常に楽という人間が好きなので、「そのまま突っ走って!」と思っています。全力で八乙女楽をやっている八乙女楽が僕は大好きですね。
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.

Trivia

  • Gaku is ranked No. 1 as The Man Women Want to be Embraced by. (抱かれたい男No.1) [1]
    • There's actually a mistranslation here! This has nothing to do with being hugged. 抱く(daku), DOES have the meaning "to embrace" in it, but no one uses it as innocently as that. It always has sexual connotation to it. If you want "hug" you’d use 抱きしめる (dakishimeru). Like it or not, 抱く is usually the go to word for sex. Japanese tends to not be as obvious in language about certain things and there’s an implicit understand about what it means beyond its base meaning. That’s why the title "Dakaretai Otoko No. 1" (this is a real title btw) should be more accurate understood as "sexiest man of the year" / "sexiest man alive" etc. [2]
  • He admits that cursing is an unexpected habit of his. [3]
  • When Gaku gets depressed, he’ll suddenly start sending out riddles and things.[4]
  • On off days, Gaku helps out at home or does laundry. He watches movies sometimes too. [5]
  • Rather than by genre, Gaku picks movies based on directors and castings he likes. [5]
  • He has his driver’s licence and enjoys driving around.[5]
  • Gaku likes collecting bath powders.[6]
  • Gaku really loves soba. [5]
  • Gaku is from a divorced family. [1]
  • He values family a lot, especially after his parents’ divorce. [1]
  • Despite his parents being divorced, he still keeps in touch with his biological mother’s family and even receives presents from his grandfather and mom secretly. [7]
  • He helps out at his maternal grandfather’s soba shop secretly, in his free time. [1]
  • He learnt how to play the guitar from a friend in a band, for his role in a drama. [7]
  • Gaku gave Yamato a pair of matching shoes for his birthday, just because Yamato complimented on his shoes a while back. [8]
  • Tsumugi and the IDOLiSH7 members still do not know that the delivery person from the Yamamura soba store is actually the Yaotome Gaku they know from TRIGGER. They think of him(the delivery person) as a Yaotome Gaku lookalike. [5]
  • Gaku definitely has a crush on Tsumugi.[9]
  • He has asked Tsumugi out for a meal, unfortunately their schedules didn’t match that day and Tsumugi had to turn him down.[5]
  • Once, he wanted to pick Tsumugi up from the station after work late at night and drive her home, but Takanashi Papa (Otoharu Takanashi) came to get her instead.
  • During the time Tsumugi was studying stage production, Gaku suggested that she put on a disguise so she could attend TRIGGER’s rehearsal to observe. [10]
  • When Gaku offered to buy her the tickets to TRIGGER’s concert, Tsumugi insisted on properly paying the price of the tickets as a fan.[10]
