Minaduki Rui is the male representative for the month of June. He is an idol under Tsukino Talent Production, and is a member of the unit Procellarum. His producer is Yuyoyuppe, and he is voiced by Aoi Shouta.

AppearanceEdit

Rui is a lanky, rather short young male has greyish-green hair, with several locks reaching past his shoulder, and turquoise-colored eyes. He has a scar on his body that resulted from an incident when he was five years old, and constantly has a band-aid on the left side of his neck and another on his left-chest area.[1][2]

He has a stiff body, sensitive skin, low blood pressure, noise-sensitive, among other things. However, he started building up his stamina, although it remains at a level below average.[3]

PersonalityEdit

Rui comes off as innocent and naive, to the point that Shimotsuki Shun has (somewhat negatively) influenced his way of thinking. However, he can also do rather unexpected things whilst maintaining a straight face. He possesses a unique worldview, which makes him nonreactive to things such as scary stories.[3]

HistoryEdit

Rui possesses a natural talent for music, particularly the piano, and has participated in national and international competitions from childhood. However, following a discord with his older brother, Rei, who did not possess the same music talent as Rui, as well as disagreements with his parents involving his musical career as a pianist, Rui has ran away from home, was picked-up by Fuduki Kai and had been living with him until they were scouted.[1][2]

He was scouted due to Kai (who had been scouted while helping out with some people moving into the talent production's dorms) showing the talent company a picture of Rui, who had just woken up, looking out-of-focus, and said company encouraged Kai to bring Rui along to become an idol.[2][4]

RelationshipsEdit

Kannaduki IkuEdit

Kannaduki Iku and Rui had a lot of distance in the start but Rui started to open up to him which is the result of Rui calling Iku for "Ikkun" [5]. He also is the only one that Rui calls by nickname. Rui calls other members that live in the dorm by their names only. [6]

Terase YunoEdit

Yuno and Rui seems to be on good terms, as Rui lets Yuno play with his cat Yamato.[7] Yuno is taller and stronger than Rui, proved that once she was able to carry him bridal style, which apparently made Rui a little mortified.[8]

Fuduki KaiEdit

Kai took in Rui after the latter ran away from home, even Yamato, who Rui took with him. Kai, quite used to taking care of those younger than him, treats Rui as if he were his own son, or at least, a younger brother of his.

Shimotsuki ShunEdit

Because Rui is really naïve and innocent, Shun likes to teach him a lot of weird things. Rui doesn’t like how Shun looks happy whenever he missed when he plays bowling.

Mutsuki HajimeEdit

Because his older brother was a classmate of Mutsuki Hajime, he had been told about Hajime and at the time before he met with Hajime he had a one-sided acquaintance with him.

Nagatsuki YoruEdit

Rui consider him as a mother of Procellarum, since Yoru always taking care of Procellarum member. Rui likes pudding the one Yoru made for him too.

Shiwasu KakeruEdit

Kakeru worried for Rui when Rui stopped to take a rest in an errand for Kai. He asked if Rui feels fine.[9] Later on, when they have lived in the same dorm, their relationship develops pretty well.
