Appearance[edit | edit source]
The prime minister is a short, substantially bald man with large eyes, a plump nose, and noticeably small eyebrows.
As one who holds authority over the government of Japan, the prime minister dresses formally in a button-up suit, accompanied by a tie.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Kunou Mari has stated that the prime minister is well-known for his idiocy. He admits to others that he tends to be uncertain towards a wide range of subjects, and thus, he is careful to affirm the situation at hand first before taking any actions.
However, the prime minister has an extreme and deranged way to settle political matters, such as revolutions, by threatening the lives of his enemies' relatives. Without mercy, he orders the execution of his enemies' kinsman, and pays no heed to the fact that his violent acts are broadcast on the media. This indicates that he prefers to suppress rebellions by pitting against their weaknesses as swiftly as possible, no matter how much bloodshed is to occur, which in turn demonstrates his ruthless and unscrupulous nature.
In addition, the prime minister appears to hold a deep grudge against Hoshimiya Eiji due to the fact that he is responsible for the Great Destruction, and goes through great lengths to suppress Eiji.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The prime minister encounters Eiji, the said perpetrator of the war declaration, and comments about his youth. He interrupts Kunou Mari in her midst of explanation so that he can corroborate that the Dazaifu Central Bureau is truly under the control of Eiji. Once that is asserted, he reveals that the Group of Ten's relatives in Tokyo are kept as hostages, and announces that they will be executed. The execution rounds initiates, and he taunts them. Nene reminds him that their telecommunication meeting is being broadcast to the entire nation, but he deems that as insignificant, stating that if their opponent is Eiji who caused the Great Destruction ten years ago, it cannot be helped and the killings shall be continued.
Eiji then speaks up, saying that there is no meaning to how many he kills, and the prime minister questions this. Eiji seems to shoot Nene with his gun, causing the prime minister to grow doubtful of the situation. Kurenai Rin suddenly enters Eiji's room, in an attempt to kill him, and Eiji fires a bullet through her forehead, much to the prime minister's astonishment. After that, Eiji officially declares war, and the prime minister is agitated.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- "Let's execute all of the relatives of the Group of Ten who live in Tokyo, one by one. If you all really cannot disobey Eiji's control, then you just have to silently look at what will transpire."
- "I apologize for those people who are having their meal right now, but if our opponent is the Hoshimiya Eiji who caused the 'Great Destruction' ten years ago, it can't be helped."
