Haruto Asuka (飛鳥 晴翔) is the top actor of the God Troupe who is very close to Reni and Tasuku was working with him before he quit. He is rather rude and has a condescending personality, and hates Mankai just as much as Reni. Haruto always tries to mock or bring down Mankai, trying to humiliate them whenever he gets the chance. He uses an alias to hide his real identity.
Once Tasuku called him by his real name; Genta Yamada (山田 弦太), and Haruto accidentally changed dialect. He usually has some what of an elegant vibe, and charming at least to fans.
Haruto complains about others a lot, is easily annoyed, and has more or less of a superiority complex. He is very haughty and stubborn. He has much confidence in himself compared to other people and Mankai, who looks down on them. Haruto is easily annoyed by others but occasionally does act a bit tsundere-like and cares about his younger troupe-mates (though usually in exasperation).
Despite all this, Haruto truly loves acting and will do anything to put on a good show. He can even be cool sometimes according to his juniors and has gotten more mature honest as time passed. He. gives praise and accepts defeat when the other deserves it.
In front of fans, in which he has quite a large fanbase, he has a charming and almost prince-like image. He is rather good at wooing fans and using fan-service.
However, Haruto grew up from a poor household in Kansai and moved to Tokyo after he was captivated by the showbiz world, and joined the God Troupe. He had been acting there for a while but was always second-best and never the star actor, a title formerly taken by Tasuku and then Shifuto.
Tasuku: On stage and in front of fans it seemed like they had a good relationship but they didn't exactly get along too well. Their relationship worsened when Haruto grew increasingly hostile to Mankai and used unsavory methods to drag them down. After a while though, they respected each other more as they saw how each other grew on the stage and as a person.
Reni: Haruto is basically Reni's right hand man who places a lot of trust in Haruto. Haruto is loyal to Reni and respects him a lot.
