So for this to be the end...

Tamaki Yotsuba



Tamaki Yotsuba (四葉 環, Yotsuba Tamaki) is a fairly menacing-looking kid who speaks roughly and does everything with his heart rather than his head. He’d much prefer not to think about the details of a situation, and this usually includes things like manners or actions of respect to those higher up than him on the totem pole.

Tamaki is very good at picking up on emotions, and is very sensitive to emotional changes in others. He has no problem being reprimanded for an action if it was wrong or bothersome to the other party, but if that reprimand is coupled with anger he’s very quick to be upset. His love of cheap snacks, King Pudding included, possibly comes from his days at the childcare facility and trying to collect stamps and caps for freebies.

In regard to how Tamaki was scouted, Tamaki was dancing in front of train stations for small change when Otoharu Takanashi approached him. Tamaki didn't really understand what he was saying, but once Otoharu mentioned that he’d be on TV, he accepted. Since, much of Tamaki’s motivation comes from trying to find his missing sister, Aya, who is now 15 years old. His reason for becoming an idol was to find her–and he chose to be an idol because they often appeared on TV. Otoharu asked him to follow him back to the office to talk for a bit, but Tamaki said he would only talk if he bought him food, so Otoharu bought him spaghetti. When asked if he was wary of Otoharu at first, Tamaki replied that he was a nice person for buying him food, but also he wasn’t worried because he figured that he could beat him up easily if he'd have to fight him. "He was an old man, after all."[1]

FOR YOU: みなさんの応援のお陰で第3部ができて、環としてまたアイナナの世界で過ごせることが僕自身も本当に嬉しいです。ありがとうございます。第3部も気になるお話がたくさん出てくると思いますので楽しんでいただけたらと思います。
Thanks to everyone's support we've made it to Part 3, and for me personally I'm really happy to have been able to live in Ainana's world through Tamaki again. Thank you very much. I think there are lots of stories that'll perk your interest in Part 3, so I hope you'll be able to enjoy it.

FOR TAMAKI: 成長したなと思う気持ちと同時に、いい意味で環らしさは忘れずにそのままいってほしいという気持ちがあるので「大人になったね。」「でも変わらずにいてね。」という2つを伝えたいです。
At the same time as I feel like he's grown up, I also feel like I don't want him to lose his Tamaki-ness (in a good way), so the two things I want to say to him are "You've really grown up." and "But don't ever change.".

Trivia



  • He's ranked number 5 as The Man Women Want to be Embraced by. (抱かれたい男No.5) [2]
    • 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. [3]
  • Sogo’s signature was designed by Tamaki. [4]
  • He absolutely hates it when people take his food. [2]
  • He started living at the orphanage when he was about three years old. [5]
  • Tamaki is good with children because he can see things from their perspective and properly listen to what they have to say.[6]
  • Tamaki knows quite a bit about constellations and wants to go stargazing with everyone one day. [1]
  • On his time off, Tamaki plays games, reads manga, and goes out to buy sweets when he has money. [5]
  • Tamaki did not have a mobile phone until he got scouted. [1]
    • He enjoys playing phone games "where you do puzzles and make cards stronger", involving gachas and SSRs. [1]
  • Tamaki likes both manga and anime. He likes it when the protagonist powers up every time upon meeting strong opponents, and he thinks that Magical★Cocona is girly. [7]
  • Tamaki and Nagi are anime buddies. Nagi states that they’re both rich in emotions, so when they watch anime they will cry. [7]
  • Tamaki has the most stamina in IDOLiSH7. Tamaki supported and carried Riku on his back to the living room after the outdoor live, as Riku was too exhausted and his legs couldn’t support himself. [8]
  • Tamaki once had a bug problem in his room because he left half-eaten puddings lying around. [9]
  • Before getting scouted, Tamaki had never eaten cakes from restaurants or cafes, because according to him, "for the price of a cake or parfait you can eat a hamburger." [5]
  • He likes all types of cakes, except those that have a weird taste like alcohol. [5]
  • When Tamaki learned that Mitsuki could make cakes, he’s been going over to Mitsuki's room whenever he’s hungry. Mitsuki also taught him that "those who don’t work don’t eat!", and in exchange for Mitsuki making him something, he’ll get Tamaki to wash a pair of his shoes. [10]
  • When Tamaki raced against Iori at their school’s swimming pool, Tamaki won at all strokes except the backstroke, because he curved halfway and wound up in the next lane. [11]
  • Tamaki was the one who decided on the occupation for Iori's job experience. Initially, Tamaki wanted something challenging for Iori since he can do anything easily, and he thought of "Body Builder Iorin". The thought of a "Buff Iorin" made both Tamaki and Tsumugi laugh. In the end, Tamaki decided on a newscaster for Iori, as he seems to be well liked by the television staff, and plus Iori has a perfect business smile. [6]
  • After seeing Riku drunk, Iori vowed that even if he’s an adult, he will never drink. Tamaki also made that same vow. [12]
  • When Sogo tried calling out to Tamaki with a pet name, as "Taa-kun", Tamaki dropped the pot he was holding which contained their dinner. [13]
  • Tamaki helps Riku get stuff that he can’t reach. [14]
  • All the members went to wake Tamaki up together, for his job experience recording. Riku delivered the last blow by tickling Tamaki, causing the latter to wake up and give up on trying to sleep any longer. [6]
  • Tamaki was upset that he couldn’t take a nap with kids at his job experience at the kindergarten. He thought that he would get to sleep too, since he woke up super early for that morning for the recording. [6]
