-The bothersome miser who dreams of being a billionaire!-
"So, is being an idol really that lucrative?"
SideM Idol File
Reason for Becoming an Idol: It’s just a side job, you know. Idols seem like they make a whole lotta dough, right?
Personal Motto: Billionaire! Heh, what a wonderful word!
Comments for the Future: Singing, dancing idols~ That kind of stuff doesn’t exactly scream “me,” so even I’m pretty surprised I’m here, but what’s done is done. Doing the bare minimum... is just fine, haha.
Comments about Unit Members: Compared to me, Number 1 and Number 2 are pretty youthful, huh... Even though Number 2 is older than me. They’re both completely clueless characters, either way, but I’m gonna try and get along with them, somehow.

"Umm... I'm Jiro Yamashita. I think you already know this by now, but I'm a former teacher. Thank you for inviting me along."
Character Description and Personality
Jiro is a 30 year old ex-science teacher. He represents the "S" for Science in S.E.M. He resigned after hearing about Michio Hazama’s dream to become an idol. While he was hesitant on leaving, he perked up to the idea once it was mentioned how much money they could possibly make. Jiro is very lax and kind of a slob. He often uses the school’s science equipment to brew his coffee, which Michio has to scold him for. When him, Rui, and Michio first began auditioning for becoming idols and failed many times, he was going to give up until Michio admitted to him that he felt bad for dragging him and Rui Maita into his own dream of becoming an idol. Jiro comments that even if they had stayed teachers, they wouldn’t be living that extravagantly. Despite his appearance and claims that he only cares about getting rich, he does have a few soft spots. He usually gets bashful once someone notices. During the "Osu! Idol Cheering Squad!” Event, he makes time in a busy schedule to go see a young fan’s little league game. Once the boy notices him, he hides himself behind his newspaper. He is shown to be quite bad with handling his appearance, but Michio comments that when he cleans up and stands up straight, he looks quite dashing.
