Make a simple self introduction
My name is Futami Akabane~ Before becoming an I-chu I have always been an unemployed NEET. Eh, am I still a NEET? No~
How did you become an idol?
It was a situation where I had no choice but to work. Since I'm a person that can do it if he tries I have to work harder~
Your impression upon meeting the other members?
Issei is scary while Takamichi is domineering. I'm the most refreshing, right? By the way, the past me was able to get pretty along with those two!
Futami is a laid-back, happy-go-lucky man who doesn't like things that are even the slightest bit tiresome and will steer clear of anything he considers bothersome shamelessly. He's often a target of anger and dissatisfaction from the other members of his unit and the producer for lazying around all day and possessing not a hint of motivation for seemingly anything, but it doesn't seem to greatly concern him at all. Futami believes that relaxing and doing things at one's own pace is the key to everything and wouldn't mind if someone bought food for him everyday. He loves sloths and can be seen smoking from time to time.
Futami has brown messy hair that often sticks out along with wavy and uneven bangs that cup his face. He has droopy, green eyes that often make him appear sleepy.
Along with wearing a lot of green he often wears shirts with sloths on them.

Spare me from the bothersome things, okay? I can't leave it to you two and go home?
I want Namakemono's merchs~
It's not like I don't want to do it? It's just that it's a pain~
Good job? No job is more comfortable and easy~
Why is french bread so hard... It tires my jaws.
Issei and Takamichi are trying hard for me, I'll have to say my gratitude
Pay utmost attention to your health. Just do it at leisure pace like me.
It's better to speak honestly about bothersome things~
What are you getting all hasty about? Don't get impatient, let's just do it slowly.
As long as I haven't find the something that suits me, working just means loss to me.
I'll work if I can get Nama-chan's merch~
Yo! Youngsters, please keep it up~ Like that, please fight on for my parts too~

Old Monthly Lines
Speak of New Year, kotatsu and mikan is a must! As long as I have these two, I can get through January!
Hatsumode? Ngh~ I don't want to get out of my house~
Eh? Chocolate? Heeh you prepared it! You're skilled too~
Everyone says that Issei is scary but is he really that scary?
This is a gift from me for white day. It's not handmade, but will you take it?
Hmm! Eating an apple while looking at the cherry blossoms is really special~♪
It started becoming completely warm. Now's the best time to laze around!
Producer, I'll give it my best and work! Well, it's a lie though
Oh, it's the Koinobori's. They sure are hard-working for floating day and night~
You get tired just by moving during the rainy season. I wanna slack off...
Years sure pass by in the blink of an eye
Oh, it's time to change clothes. I have to put them in order but I don't feel like moving at all
Shall we go together to the summer festival? It feels like it would be fun if you're with me too~
Guu~ Hn, eh? Why am I buried by sand? Get me out~
It's hot... I want to turn on the cooler... But the electricity turned off!
If it's this hot, the most ecological thing that we can do is idling at home and do nothing.
For a rabbit to go to the moon and make mochi.. They sure are hardworking, huh.
The heat's finally slowing down... I can sleep peacefully in this cool autumn weather~
I like Halloween. I can get sweets even if I just stand still~
I won't be me if I work, right? There is nothing good about that sort of me!
Autumn has just the right temperature. When winter comes around, I won't be able to sleep since it's too cold.
Maybe I should show off my artistic skill in arranging flowers~
Winter apples are a special thing you know? You should try some too.
Merry Christmas! Next year I will surely get serious!
While you wait, how about taking a nap with me?
It's fine to choose things you want to see.
Choose a chapter that you like!
Doesn't this look kinda interesting?
Love~ I also want to try tasting love.
Let's read the story together, okay?
There's a shop!
Won't you also buy my share?
Do you want you see your friends information?
For now you can come here if there's something bothering you.
What a pain~
One more time.
See, you can do it if you try!
I'm doing pretty well too.
Great work~ Now, should I go back to the dressing room then sleep~?
I'm happy that you can get the bonuses~
Let's finish this quickly~
I'll leave the rest to you.
Yes, yes, do your best~
Can I take a quick break?
I think I tried too hard~
It's thanks to you!
I won't mind if you do a mistake~
Let's relax some more~
This is a piece of cake, huh.
Encore!? Give me a break~
That's awesome! I respect you for that~
