About Riku Nanase

IDOLiSH7 Riku Nanase - A Sickly but Sweet Twin Idol

Riku Nanase is a character from a Japanese rhythm game by Bandai called IDOLiSH7 (stylized as IDOLiSH7, also referred to as i7). Riku is a cute and energetic idol with a lightweight frame, due to an unexplained illness that caused him to live most of his early life in hospitals. He is quite naive about the world and tends to wear his heart on his sleeve. This mentality also leads him to say thinkings without thinking that unintentionally end up striking others as rude or insensitive. He optimistically overestimates his physical abilities in hopes of maintaining independence but, on the contrary, pushing himself too far often leads him to the depths of his health.

Riku has an older twin brother named Tenn Kujo. Although they are fraternal twins, they have different blood types. When he was younger, he couldn't eat chocolate or most other junk foods. Though he is said to have weak bronchial tubes, he was the leader of the boys section of his high school chorus. Due to his poor health, Riku was not allowed to join a club or participate in gym class in school. Riku is a bookworm and is known to have reading glasses. Perhaps this is why he knows an above-average amount of kanji. He also claims that he can see ghosts.

IDOLiSH7 is a Japanese rhythm game developed and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment with music collaboration by Lantis for Android and iOS platforms that features character design by Arina Tanemura. Since its debut in August 2015, IDOLiSH7 has had several adaptations in various mediums including novelizations, manga, and anime.

The idol group is named IDOLiSH7 and consists of seven male singers, each with their own unique personality and background. She must train and turn all of them into the famous idols, all the while struggling against the hardships of the entertainment industry.
