K-On!: Akiyama Mio

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Shy and introverted, Akiyama Mio is a member of the Light Music Club and a bassist. She plays a left-handed, 3-Color Sunburst Fender Jazz Bass with a tortoiseshell pickguard. Mio initially planned to join the Literary Club, but was forced by Ritsu Tainaka (her childhood friend and the club drummer) to join the Light Music Club. Mio is an academic achiever, and she gets excellent grades in school, though she hates listening to subjects that involve macabre experiences such as ghosts, blood, barnacles and haunted houses.

Akiyama Mio also dislikes being the center of attention, which is why she chose the bass as her musical instrument. Along with Yui, Mio is one of the band’s primary vocalists, though because of her dislike being in the spotlight, she tries to avoid being the lead vocalist as much as possible, only volunteering to perform whenever Yui is unable to.

Mio is more technical when it comes to music, and Yui often comes to her when she is in need of more guitar tutorials. She writes most of the club’s songs, even though the lyrics were deemed a little odd and too girlish, featuring words such as “Light and Fluffy Time!”

Vampire Knight: Yuki Cross

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Yuki Cross is the adoptive daughter of Cross Academy’s headmaster, Kaien Cross. She’s a first year student at Cross Academy and a Prefect tasked to monitor and keep peace among the Day Class, which consists mostly of human students, and the Night Class, which is composed of vampires. Yuki is later revealed to be a pureblooded vampire princess, Yuki Karan. Her mother, Juri, sacrificed herself to seal Yuki’s true nature as a rare pureblood vampire, allowing her to live as an ordinary human girl for a decade.

Prior to her transformation, Yuki was mocked for being flat-chested, resembling a young boy. She’s generally a cheerful and comical person. Despite being considered a little stupid and academically incompetent, Yuki remains loyal and protective of her close friends. She is often kept ignorant by other characters who know more about goings-on, which results in her character feeling guilty for being unaware of the suffering of other characters.
