Both of his parents were involved in the entertainment industry, his dad is one of Japan’s top voice actors in anime such as (Detective Conan, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Naruto) to video games (Kingdom Hearts II, Super Robot Wars and the Japanese version of Resistance Retribution). While his mum, Keichi Igarashi, is a popular manga artist Yumiko Igarashi of Candy Candy fame. He started out as junior member at Johnny’s Entertainment, Japan’s biggest boy band agency.

The story begins when he tries secretly “cosplay” his girlfriend who was not there and who is surprised by it. He also wrote about beauty tips, make up to clothes. His parents are very supportive of his hobby though.
