At first, all of this was supposed to be for revenge…
But it’s different now– I wanna make their dreams come true!

Yamato Nikaido



Yamato Nikaido (二階堂 大和, Nikaidou Yamato) comes across as very lazy and easy-going, but he is very passionate about what he does and cares a lot about the other members of IDOLiSH7. He took up the position of “Leader” only because he was the oldest in the group, he actually considered pulling himself out of the audition for IDOLiSH7.

Yamato has held a very deep dislike towards the entertainment world in general before joining the agency, And it's implied that he was connected to it himself at some point in the past.

He can’t actually see much at all without his glasses, is a confrontational drunk, calls himself oniisan (big brother), is weak to honest and hardworking individuals like Riku and Mitsuki, and owns a personal cleaning robot named Musashi.

Yuusuke Shirai's Comments about Part 3
Translation
FOR YOU: 僕自身も楽しみにしていたんですが、第3部も序盤から怒涛の展開で、一言たりとも逃せないような厚みのあるお話になっているかと思いますので、是非みなさん楽しんでプレイしていただければと思います。
I'd personally been looking forward to it myself, but Part 3 starts with a drastic development right from the get-go, so I think it's the sort of dense story where you really can't let a single word go by unnoticed. I'd like it if everyone could please enjoy and play it for themselves.

FOR IORI: 「大和、よく頑張ったな。」って言ってあげたいです。お酒をご馳走してねぎらってあげたいですね。
"Yamato, you sure gave it your best." is what I'd wanna say. I wanna thank him by treating him to drinks.
