SideM Idol File
Reasons for Becoming an Idol: Because I was scouted... But, if it weren’t for Touma and Shouta, I wouldn’t have continued.
Personal Motto: Women with willpower are all beautiful.
Comments for the Future: I’d say... I want to make all of my princesses around the world happy. Huh? No good? But, that’s how I really feel... Honestly, I don’t particularly have something I want to become. But, I do want to continue being idols with Touma and Shouta.
Comments about Unit Members: When I look at Touma, I see a lot of similarities between us. But I can’t see myself chasing a dream the same way he does... Shouta’s like a little brother to me. I look forward to my future with them. Fufu!

THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"I'm Hokuto Ijuuin. Seeing you in this way is when I realized that once again, you are a wonderful person."
A former pianist and model, Hokuto Ijuuin is a charming, confident, and elegant 20 year old with the image of a flirty prince.
Hokuto comes from a musically talented family with a violinist father, a mother who teaches piano, and a sister who is learning the flute. As a kid he could play the piano very well, but in high school, a tendon injury made him unable to play professionally. Despite this, he still retains some level of talent with the instrument, being able to play "Der Flohwalzer" at high tempo. He is the weakest dancer of his unit, but excels in visual to make up for it.
In college, he was in the tennis club along with Rui Maita, his reason for joining that particular club was that the girls' short skirts were cute. During this time was when he took up work as a model before being scouted as an idol. According to Rui, Hokuto didn't enjoy his time in this job very much, but the details of this are unclear.
While he may come off as aloof due to his flirty tendencies, he shows great maturity and intelligence when needed and is genuinely kind, once winning a magazine poll asking which celebrity readers would like as their older brother (Touma came in 2nd). He is also respectful of women to the point where he once lost in a fighting game against Shouta because the latter was playing as a female character.
He is known for often saying "Ciao☆" and calling his female fans "Angel-chans". In 315 Pro, he starts acknowledging his male fans as "Angel-kuns" and says he appreciates beautiful people regardless of gender.
As part of 961 Productions, he doesn't give much effort to dancing. He consists solely of over-the-top pick up lines and attempts at flirting because he claims he only knows how to appeal to a female audience. Just like Takane Shijou, he talks in a polite manner whether he's talking to rivals or not.
He has an interest in Makoto Kikuchi and tries to take her out on a date, however, his attempts failed due to the deep bond that Makoto has for the Producer. He also did the same for Azusa Miura but was instantly turned down.
Hokuto appears as a rival in the STAR OF FESTA mode for Honey Sound, Groovy Tune, and Funky Note. He is an SSS rank rival who can give his Name Card to the player while in the EXPERT difficulty. Obtaining his Name Card adds 100 points to the player's score after their performance.
Hokuto Ijuuin cameos as part of the unit Jupiter, along with Shouta Mitarai and Touma Amagase, as a possible rival unit the player can face.
Other Media Discography
Hokuto first appeared in the anime along with Shouta Mitarai in the tenth episode as a special guest in "The Big Talent Agency Sports Competition". In the second half of the show, Hokuto and the other members of Jupiter are recurring characters, and serve as rivals to the 765 Pro idols. With Kuroi's help, Jupiter covers a magazine shoot and replaces 765's cover in Episode 14. Hokuto also nearly replaced Hibiki Ganaha on her animal television show in Episode 16. He is shown that he was flirting with an ostrich (and the ostrich ending up falling in love with him). By Episode 20, Hokuto, Touma Amagase and Shouta Mitarai are fed up with Kuroi's tricks and decide to leave 961 Production. They can be seen performing afterwards in Episode 25, currently as freelance idols.
Jupiter makes a cameo appearance as a silhouette.
Hokuto's family consists of his parents and his little sister. All of them have played and specialize in a musical instrument. (His parents play the violin and piano respectively and his little sister plays the flute.)
Following Jupiter's separation from 961 Pro, Hokuto takes up much of the professional responsibility for the group as seen in "Episode of Jupiter", with him being the oldest and more experienced. He is the one that first starts talking to President Saitou, but ultimately all of Jupiter comes to the decision to be part of 315 Productions. He retains much of his mature personality and isn't as flirtatious as he was in his appearance in the 2011 anime.
His relationship with Rui Maita is briefly touched upon in Episode 5 when he came to see S.E.M's debut performance.
