September’s Character of the Month – Kaguya Riho (Deardrops)
Riho is the main vocalist of the band, Deardrops. She first stumbled upon the protagonist, Shoichi randomly on the streets, and while they were originally on bad terms, Riho eventually joined his band, becoming the fifth and final member of Deardrops.
What I like her best is her modesty and diligence. It’s no doubt she has talents, but to top it off, she works hard, as her voice emphasized years of struggles and hard work. As VNDB puts it, her clear vocals display her straightforward disposition, and is even able to punch it’s way into the listener’s soul. She never sees herself as a superior being within the music world, and sometimes, she did display her doubt and insecurity. This however, just makes her work even more harder, constantly improving her vocals without a limit. After all, she dreams big too, as her dream is for the whole world to be able to hear her songs.
Riho is also honest and straightforward. She always gives the most genuine of opinions, and would never mince words. She is also seen to be prideful, and would prefer competing with her musical rivals fair and square. Refusing any compromise, her extreme prideful and straight-laced altitude sometimes makes her the subject of bully. She does not has high regard of individuals who lack the motivations and passions for their goals, and will criticize or even insult
and even smack at people she thinks deserve it, her audacity almost knows no bounds. As such, Riho is very easily misunderstood to be narcissistic and egotistical, and many other people are hostile towards her because of this. However, she is just being honest, brutally so, and she does gives praises without a facade of deception when one meets her expectations.
