SideM Idol File
Reasons for Becoming an Idol: I want to debut on a major label, so I'm starting small.... Training, I guess?
Personal Motto: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Comments for the Future: I guess when it comes to the future, I have strong feelings about being successful as a band, not just an individual. Being able to hear other people’s thoughts, being able to tell them my own, I think that’s a blessing in and of itself.
Comments about Unit Members: I think Jun’s really pretty amazing on the piano! I’m not very good at telling what Natsuki’s thinking, but there’s no doubt he’s got some talent. Haruna cleans up pretty well when we need him to, too! Shiki... well, he gets carried away pretty easily, but he’s a good kid.

Character Description and Personality
Hayato is the passionate leader of High×Joker, as well as the unit's guitarist. He also serves as a composer for the group along with Jun Fuyumi as a lyricist. He is a very energetic and friendly boy who gets excited easily but doesn't go too overboard. He is also a bit of a crybaby, having the tendency to cry when he is extremely happy, such as when he came in first during the 1st SideM Election. Hayato is always thinking of different ways on how to become popular, as this was his motivation for starting the light music club at his high school. Despite this, he never tries to upstage any of his fellow band members. As the leader, he has a strong sense of responsibility towards the rest of his band members. He always helps them out when they're troubled or if they're having trouble during practice.
Hayato is a boy of below average height with moss green hair and brown-hazel eyes. His most common outfit is his school uniform, a white button-up shirt with gray sweater-vest. His HighxJoker outfit features a long sleeved white shirt, a black tie, and an open red vest embroidered with the unit's logo.
