Kotobukiya Celebrates Uta No Prince-Sama Character’s Birthday
Ittoki Otoya (一十木 音也), the red-head hottie from Uta No Prince-Sama (うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪), will be celebrating his birthday on April 11, but that doesn’t stop Japanese toy company, Kotobukiya, from showing their love for Otoya.
Kotobukiya has proudly displayed this delectable Otoya birthday cake in Akihabara, along with other Otoya collectibles. Kotobukiya also shares the Otoya love with Uta No Prince-Sama fans by putting up a cork board below their display for fans to post their birthday greetings in.
Uta No Prince-Sama began as an otome-themed visual novel in Japan. It was first released on June 24, 2010 for the Playstation Portable and since then, Uta No Prince-Sama has gained mass popularity in the country. The first visual novel was followed with five more visual novels and eventually spawned a rhythm game, a manga and an anime series.
Uta No Prince-Sama tells the story of Haruka Nanami (七海 春歌), a young girl who dreams of composing songs for her favorite idol one day. By enrolling in the Saotome Academy, Haruka stands a chance at becoming a composer herself. Haruka finds herself in Class A with Ittoki Otoya, a boy with dreams of becoming an idol. Will she and Otoya reach their respective dreams?
