Some of you know my amateur manga Hokori Academy's Kings and Queens, here's another main character Rika Kasuga!
High School Label: The Loose Cannon
Rika is a bright, peppy, hyperactive and popular girl at school. However just because she's popular that doesn't mean she's mean, in fact she's the exact opposite since she's nice to everyone but she is extremely energetic to the point of being obnoxious she nonetheless remains fancied by many admirers and fans. She's a self-acclaimed 'rocker' because of her love for music, singing and performing and she knows she has talent but she's not haughty about but she does LOVE to show off her skills and spread good music throughout the school and anywhere else she may be. Despite her popularity she's a part of Kuro's gang, her close friend whom she admires greatly. The truth is she's actually infatuated with the short girl and is very open about her attraction and admiration to her, not that Kuro minds and Rika tends to become jealous of anyone else who might also be interested in Kuro regardless of gender but she hardly gets crazy jealous. If you're a 'Kuro-chan' fangirl than Rika will welcome you with open arms. Rika is bisexual and she's not afraid to show it, and she's a firm supporter of gay/lesbian rights and she creates a club called the 'Rainbow Club' for any other supporters and a club welcome to anyone gay, straight, bi, lesbian or transgender.
Rika is NOT shy. She RARELY gets embarrassed over anything especially if it involves perverted situations, and she can be quite the flirt too. If anything she's a source of fanservice for this manga of mine~.
Another major point in her character is that she's totally crazy! Not insane-crazy but still crazy, and she's not the sharpest tool in the shed; in fact she's kind of an idiot (there's no kinda there). She has a short attention span and she rarely listens to what 'smart people' say mostly because she doesn't want to hear them. Although she's not clever she is exceptionally strong and fast, she's so strong that she can break through walls, be ridden like a horse and can be used as a weapon (you'll find out later); in short she's impervious to pain. She seems to enjoy pain sometimes. Also going back to the crazy part when she's angry or when Kuro calls her by 'Kirika' she goes into berserker mode or as she calls it 'Rika Rage', in which she makes the craziest faces, craziest laughs and she pretty much acts like a wild animal mainly to intimidate anyone she's up against.
It's rare to see her depressed and sad but when she does she resembles an emo (the hair at least) she doesn't start acting like an emo but she gets pretty close. She'd lose her mind completely if her friends ever left her behind or if something ends up going completely wrong for her and there was nothing she couldn't do about it...
She has some Mexican heritage in her, her full name is really Kirika Esperanza Selena Linda De La Cruz-Kasuga but she's called just Kirika Kasuga for short.
Rika was always energetic and talkative even when she was a baby, though her first words were incoherent babbles her parents were proud. Although she and him won't ever admit it her best friend is her big brother Norihiko 'Nico'. Because her dad loves older music and he plays guitar Rika took an interest despite some of the financial trouble her family went through for a bit until her dad finally got a job. The only other troubles she went through concerned two friends she made, Ran Fujiwara and his brother Shin Fujiwara. It was a sad time for Rika because she tried so hard to keep everyone around her happy that she forgot to also keep herself happy, but then she met Kuro whom was able to talk to Rika and Ran about their problems and the girl gained more hope. Kuro helped her gain her passion back and Rika was able to go back to being herself and she won her friend Ran back, ever since she's devoted herself to being one of the greatest singers of all time and being one of the best friends she can be to all her loved ones. She's over the depressing stuff she went through and she was able to use those times as inspiration for her own written songs now all she wants to do is have tons of fun and spread GOOD music throughout her school and to just spend her time rocking out with her coolest friends in the world.
"Hm... do I like boys? YES! I LOVE BOYS! AND... I LOVE GIRLS! I must LOVE boys and I have to LOVE girls too."
"I go both ways just in case you're wondering."
"Let's party like we're 17 cuz we're not stupid wannabe kids who listen to dumbass new shit that people call music!"
"Asshole, everyone knows that I'm the coolest chick here."
"You look like fucking trash and I should know because half the time people tell me that I look like trash, the difference is I make trash look good but you... you're scaring me... I'm scared of the outcome."
"Me no speaky you're smart-ass talk..."
"What ever happened to good music?"
"I like to keep everything natural, no make up, no lipstick. Hell I'm even thinking of going through a naturist phase but my brother told me no like 1,000 times..."
Hope you enjoy the expressions on her!
I don't own any of the songs just Rika and my Manga.
