Kanata Minato (湊奏多 Minato Kanata) is one of the main characters in I-Chu. He is a part of the Idol Unit, F∞F, which was the first to be introduced in the game.

Profile Description Edit

A cutesy boy with a soothing feeling. He is accustomed to the entertainment industry, as he had starred in commercials and dramas ever since he was a child. Kanata is known for carrying a rabbit plush toy named "Rabirabi" all the time with him. He has a shy side, but is friendly towards the people he knows.

Interview Edit

  • Make a simple self-introduction.
    • I'm Kanata Minato. Together with Rabirabi, Seiya and Akira-kun I will work hard as an I-chu! Everyone please cheer us on! Ehehe♪
  • How did you become an idol?
    • In the past I worked as an actor iKid. A lot of things happened, but I'm glad I met Seiya and Akira-kun!
  • Your impression upon meeting the others?
    • When I first met Seiya, I thought that his eyes were shining. Also, even though I'm afraid of strangers, Seiya was fine from the beginning!


Kanata is a very cheerful young boy. While he can appear and act childish, his acting skills are backed with experience and talent. He is very attached to his stuffed animal rabbit named Rabirabi, and treats him as a very important partner whom he carries everywhere as support. Although Kanata is a bit shy, his compassionate nature normally ensures that he ends up being friends with others. Kanata is a very sincere child who speaks from his heart, and his positive attitude towards aiming to be a top idol readily guarantees him success in the future.

Appearance Edit

Kanata is a lean, slim teenager with forest green-coloured eyes, and slightly fringed, salmon pink hair that has a braided strand of hair on the right side. He is known for carrying his rabbit plush toy Rabirabi at all times.

Notes Edit

  1. He's singing the Juugoya Otsuki-san (十五夜お月さん) song, a song usually sung for the full moon festival
  2. The correct lyric is "雪やこんこ あられやこんこ" (yuki ya konko, arare ya konko; Snow falls steadily, hailstones fall steadily). It's from a song called Yuki (雪, snow). Here he makes a kind of pun since pyonpyon is the japanese onomatopeia of the sound a rabbit makes when jumping.
  3. In Setsubun people throw beans to keep away evil spirits. In some cases, one person wears a demon mask and the others throw beans at them. [More info here]
  4. Hina dolls are those characteristic dolls that are put up on Hinamatsuri. More info here
  5. Possibly referencing to Torahiko's line.
