A member of the Tsugidoka crew, Retsu is the hot-headed fire wielder who serves as the main protagonist of Pop'n Music Lapistoria! He's incredibly passionate when it comes to using his Fate Purification ability for good and cares very much about those around him. Akane is his grandmother and mentor, and he's often accompanied by a crow familiar.
In this game, he wields the red jewel lapis (also present in the game's logo).
煌-灼熱の裁き- by PON is his song.
IN THE STORY
I mean... dude's literally the MC. Shounen protagonist. If I had to detail everything about his role here, we'd be here all day. But, uh...
- It's implied through the Anelis PV that he lost his family to a fire, which is why Akane raised and trained him.
- On god, this boy jumps into every lead he can find. Very brash about it.
- His lapis gets corrupted at a point, leading him to lose his purification ability for a while even after it's purified itself. Unfortunately, he bases his self-worth pretty heavily on this. An encounter with Jade during this time leads to him becoming uncontrollable until Fuga saves him.
- He regains his ability when confronting Jade, though, supported by the rest of his crew. That's technically power of friendship, isn't it?
He also shows up in a handful of sidestories, but this is long enough.
you can trust him to keep you safe!
- Retsu's birthday is on October 24th. He shares this with Smoke.
- In his 2P palette, Retsu wields the yellow jewel lapis. He has a 2P portrait of his rampaging state too, and that portrait has a song: 暴レ焔 by Power of Nature.
- The rest of the Tsugidoka crew appears in his FEVER and Win animations, and Akane appears in his FEVER Win animation if she's unlocked. If she's not unlocked, only the Win animation will play regardless of if your Groove Gauge is full or not.
- Playing as or against Retsu will yield star effects in the background.
- A live recording of his Sunny Park song, 紅焔/SCARLET, was unlockable for a time in this game. It could be unlocked in éclale's Star Factory for 200 lumina, and starting in Usaneko it was available by default.
- While the name of his purification ability isn't derived from his Sunny Park song title (unlike the rest of Tsugidoka), it does show up in the song's lyrics.
- Retsu's Twitter kaomoji were ( ｀゜▽゜´)و炎 and ( ｀゜▽゜´)ノ炎 when Lapistoria was active. He announced the news from August 4th, 2014, to August 27th, 2014.
- Unlike the rest of Tsugidoka, Retsu's name is only formed with one kanji; 烈. It can translate to violent or intense.
unmei jouka! unmei jouka! unmei jouka! unmei j- (note: Unmei Jouka/運命浄化 = Fate Purification)
I have his figurine, a gift for getting through my freshman year of college. I love him and he resides with Fuga under my lamp. Kiss.
