THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"I'm Ryu Kimura! 20 years old! My dream is to be the number one idol in Japan! If you have any problems, just let me know about them!"
Ryu is an upbeat guy who always likes to look at the bright side of things, despite the constant stream of misfortune he encounters. Ryu’s initial dream was to become the world’s best fireman, but knowing his luck, he realized it was nearly impossible. He was aware that a fireman wasn’t probably the best career choice for his clumsy self, but he thinks its worth the risk to help ones in need. Ryu is infamous for getting himself into unlucky situations. He talks very casually in his character quotes about things like accidentally dousing himself with his morning coffee, or falling down the stairs as if these were small, everyday foibles for him.
He left his previous job after accidentally tripping and knocking over someone at a crowded idol appearance. It was mistaken for an intentional assault and Ryu was forced to resign. After someone suggested him to become an idol, he eagerly accepted. He hopes to prove to his chief that he could be an amazing idol. Though he’s fully aware of his bad luck and tendency to make many mistakes, he claims to be the best at not giving up. He feels very passionate about safety and protecting others. Hideo often wonders how he is always covered in bruises if this is so. He especially feels strongly about Producer’s safety, because they never laughed at his bad luck, and instead showed him ways to counteract it. In his casual attire, he always wears multiple good luck charms attached to his belt loop.
