Raku Wakaouji (若王子楽 Wakaouji Raku) is one of the main characters in I-Chu. He is a part of the Idol Unit, ArS, who was the fourth to be introduced in the game.

Profile Description Edit

Hikaru Orihara's childhood friend. Ever since they were young he would often poke fun at Hikaru. Always a condescending kind of guy, if he's not interested in it, he probably won't care about and won't do anything about it. He's a calligrapher who has been awarded many prizes. He's the most eccentric idol, but can do things as long as he tries. He’s on good enough terms with Akira Mitsurugi to go drinking with him when dispirited.

Interview Edit

  • Make a simple self-introduction.
    • "I'm Raku Wakaouji. My life is supposed to be only about writing calligraphy. *chuckles* ... But, well, it's fine as long as it's interesting."
  • How did you become an idol?
    • "Because I had a hunch that something interesting will happen. Well, as long as I keep my eyes on Hikaru, everything will be fine, right?"
  • Your impression upon meeting the other members?
    • "Hikaru has always been one to take even the most sarcastic remarks positively and react happily every time. It's entertaining enough for me."

Personality Edit

Seemingly dispassionate and apathetic toward everything unrelated to calligraphy, Raku's heart is often compared to that of an old man's. He usually won't exert effort to do anything unless he finds that activity somewhat "interesting." However, Raku is also observant and possesses a witty tongue, and he will often put up good banters with people he thinks is worthy of his attention.

Appearance Edit

Raku is a man with long white hair often times tied up in a ponytail. He has thick white eyebrows with beady blue eyes and is frequently seen grinning.

Looking at Torahiko makes me tired.

I usually go to the pub to drink sake with Shiki. He's my drinking buddy.
Raku Home Reg8
Hikaru is really a stupid kid… it makes me want to tease him.
Raku Home Reg9
Akira is interesting because he looks like he has something up his sleeve.
Raku Home Reg10
Hikaru seems to admire Utakata. He's following him around even today. File:Raku Home Reg11.ogg
An event has started. So, shall we go together?
Raku Home Event1
Well done with the event. It turned into a great stage.
Raku Home Event2
Good morning. I'll brew you tea so wake up. File:Raku Home Morning.ogg
Is lunch soumen? File:Raku Home Afternoon.ogg
You worked very hard. Well done. I napped while I was waiting for you. File:Raku Home Evening.ogg
I'm sure tomorrow will be a good day too. Good night. File:Raku Home Night.ogg
January This Ozoni is so full of golden leaves that I can't see the bottom. Akira, don't make that sad face. File:Raku Home 3Jan1.ogg
Kyosuke, do not panic. Here, I will lend you a hand. File:Raku Home 3Jan2.ogg
I was just thinking of writing the characters of the last year. Do you want to join me? File:Raku Home 3Jan3.ogg
February The Japanese room has this faint smell of nature, which is why I find it so relaxing. File:Raku Home 3Feb1.ogg
Hm, maybe I should brew some tea for the producer. File:Raku Home 3Feb2.ogg
March Torahiko says that he's about to go on another journey. Is it really alright to let him go?
Raku Home 3Mar1
Looking at the flowers from the garden is so elegant. I get inspiration for good characters.
Raku Home 3Mar2
I eat Chirashi sushi every year during Hina matsuri. Will you make some for me?
Raku Home 3Mar3
Are you giving me chooclate? I'll gladly accept it.
Raku Home 3Mar4
Producer, here, my return gift. Your chocolate was delicious.
Raku Home 3Mar5
April Seiya gave me an enka that he liked. What about you?
Raku Home 3Apr1
I took a nap in the garden and when I woke up I was surrounded by stray cats.
Raku Home 3Apr2
The president hypnotized the rest of ArS and now they believe that we've switched bodies.
Raku Home 3Apr3
May The Ikids wanted to put origamis on my hair.
Raku Home 3May1
Don't worry Hikaru, you can stay until you feel satisfied. Do you want tea?
Raku Home 3May2
I followed Torahiko's suggestion and colored a Koinobori with India ink. It came up pretty good. File:Raku Home 3May3.ogg
June When I listen to the sound of the rain in the middle of the night I suddenly feel like doing calligraphy. File:Raku Home 3Jun1.ogg
Since it's raining should I read some Haiku to go with the mood? File:Raku Home 3Jun2.ogg
July For leaving Hikaru in Kakitsubata's care, Akira and I are leisurely watching the festival. File:Raku Home 3Jul1.ogg
Here, it's fine to enjoy summer, but be careful enough with heatstroke. File:Raku Home 3Jul2.ogg
The Milky Way looks so beautiful from here. Come closer to me. File:Raku Home 3Jul3.ogg
August Fishing in summer is a guilty pleasure. File:Raku Home 3Aug1.ogg
I got soumen from Akira. How about eating it together with me, Producer? File:Raku Home 3Aug2.ogg
September The moon looks so big tonight. Too bad Hikaru will end up sleeping again. File:Raku Home 3Sep1.ogg
There, there, Hikaru. The tea won’t run anywhere, so don't be in such a hurry. File:Raku Home 3Sep2.ogg
October Okay, time to taste-test the cak-- Ouch, Shiki, no need to hit my hand. File:Raku Home 3Oct1.ogg
My job is to make sure that Shiki doesn't get too drunk. File:Raku Home 3Oct2.ogg
Let's see, I guess I'll go along with Hikaru's Halloween costume this year too. File:Raku Home 3Oct3.ogg
November Hikaru's form is beautiful indeed, but he has poor control. File:Raku Home 3Nov1.ogg
Drinking tea around the fireplace isn't that bad. File:Raku Home 3Nov2.ogg
December I was about to write too. Maybe Tora will write with me. File:Raku Home 3Dec1.ogg
Hikaru, it isn't an end-of-year party this year, but a new-year party. File:Raku Home 3Dec2.ogg
I won't do anything special, even though it's Christmas. Do you want to take a nap together? File:Raku Home 3Dec3.ogg
You worked really hard this year. I'm glad I met you as well. File:Raku Home 3Dec4.ogg
