Hajime is in his third year of high school, and is, among other things preparing for his university entrance exams. On his way home from school, Hajime finds an unconscious large black rabbit at a park near a train station. Unfamiliar with animals himself, he calls close friend and classmate Yayoi Haru and asks for his help. In their attempt to find help for Kuroda, they encounter a suspicious man, who turns out to be the rabbit's owner who scouts them as soon as they meet.
He and Haru are the first among the newly scouted idols to move into the Tsukino Dorms, and one day, encounter Shiwasu Kakeru, Kisaragi Koi, Uduki Arata, and Satsuki Aoi, who are all looking for the Tsukino Dorms. Haru recognizes the four as the remaining members of the idol unit they will form together, and accompanies them to the Tsukino Dorms.
Sometime within the year, their planned sibling/rival unit Procellarum, is officially announced, although he and Haru had been well aware of Tsukino Talent Production's plan to line-up a second unit to engage in idol activities with and against their unit even before Procellarum's official announcement.

- His name reflects many of his traits:
- His surname, Mutsuki (睦月) is the archaic name for the first month of the lunar calendar; poetically, January.
- Hajime may come from the noun hajime (始め), meaning "beginning", "first (in line, etc)"; from verb hajimaru (始まる), meaning "to start", "to begin (anew)" as January (surname) is the start of the year.
- Similarly, his official fanclub also reflects his position as a January representative:
- His (and Yuki's) official fanclub name, "initium", is Latin for "beginning", which reflects his given name.
- A common motif between the fanclub logo and the crest is the butterfly, which symbolizes transformation and metamorphoses in Japanese culture. Noble Japanese families also often choose the butterfly to represent their families, which reflects Hajime's belonging to the noble Mutsuki family.
- He is right-handed.
- His eyesight (both eyes) is 1.2, which Koi happily found "normal".
- He likes his eggs sunny-side-up with soy sauce; the same goes for his ramen preferences.
- Chisa was the one who gave him the nickname Hajiking.
- He received the nickname 'Heartbreak Purple' because a magazine for 2D idols once held a popularity enquette about the songs and three Tsukiuta. songs took the top ranking for the 'heartbreak song' category. The 1st place is held by Arata's Sakura to Tomo ni Kimi dake wo., the 2nd place goes to Kai's Sayonara Yume Hanabi, and the 3rd place is taken by Hajime and Haru's Koi Wasuregusa. It became a popular joke, where they form a fake sentai group called Heartbreak Trio.
- The joke is repeated now and then, like during April Fools at 2015 and 2016, and even during Tsukiuta. Stage performances.
