However, Setomaru starts his career on one year training in the comedy drama “Rocket Boys” as the main protagonist.

He’s currently singing under the unit group called D☆DATE.

For that reason, Setomaru moves from his hometown in Fukuoka and lives in Tokyo. He’s been living there for 17 years (born on May 18 1988). The A blood type guy was given the role of Kikumaru Eiji for Tennis no Oujisama Musical (Tenimyu) by the same time he start working on DBoys. he’s the third Kikumaru cast for the musical where he work with fellow D Boys’ member, Tomo and Masato Wada. Now you know why he is called “Setomaru”, right?

Given the role in tenimyu and tokusatsu series is a good step to be great. In 2007, Setomaru plays Shitsuji (Butler) in Happy Boys. He also played the otaku boy friend for DVD only release movie, “Tonari no 801 chan” at the same year.

  1. SETO KOJI SUGOI NE!!!! ^_^ DAISUKI DESU.. HONTO DA ANATA WA ATASHI NO OTOKO NOKO~ EHEHE
    SETO SEMPAI IS THE BEST!!!

  2. well to tell the truth yes in my eye it’s bcuz of him cuteness but in my heart it’s buz of the character that he had which make me fall for him.. that why i really adore him.. ^o^

    1. Character? Which character are you talking about? I mean, he’s done various kind of role (and that’s why I think he’s a great actor). I personally love him as Wataru Kurenai.

  3. i like him the way he being too childish.. and bcuz he have the characteristic of my idiol one aha. mybe it’s because i really2 don’t like mature guys which looks like they’re trying to be cool.. you know what i mean? ehehe

  4. i wish i could meet him in some way or meet a guy who really looks like him plus those kawaii character kya~ *_* do you?

    1. Me too. He’s a suitable actor for that cute role, right?
      I’m also looking forward to see Ju On-The Black Girl. However, I’m too scary to watch it alone. But, Setomaru no tame ni!!! I will

    1. But for me, what most interesting about his is the voice. I love his voice. And among all his song, I love Destiny’s Play. what abt u?

  5. btw do u have the mp3? **namida no furusato** the one at the mini concert if u had watch his koizora..well i had search through google still cant find it.. i only got its music box… haapy yet so sad~😦

    1. Are you talking about Bump of Chicken’s namida no furusato? It’s a cute song. and it’s cuter when Setomaru sing it.
      I don’t wacth Koizora the dorama, I only watch the movie (Haru-chan’s Koizora), because I can’t handle too melodramatic entertainment. ha ha ha
      But, I’ve seen him singing namida no furusato in youtube.
      so sweet.
      I’ve been looking too, but I can’t find the whole version of the song. However, you can find the original version (Bump of Chicken) in 4shared

  6. yea i already download it.. mybe they didn’t put the koizora version on internet..😦 but nvermind i still like the song n keep listen it whnever i miss it ehehe..

    1. Of course! I love Satoru!!! But, I don’t really like the hair. He looks cute with Hiro’s hair (Koizora) or Wataru’s hair (Kiva).

  7. yea.. kind a weird.. but nvermind he’s still my ojisama~ huhuhu. i haven’t watch his ju-on yet.. still waiting for it ehehe

    1. Actually, I haven’t either. I’m still looking for companion to watch it. It’s a horror movie, right. And all my friends are afraid of it. hiks hiks.
      perhaps we should watch it together🙂

    1. fyi, a little update. I tried watching Ju On last night, but I stopped at the first 5 minute. ha ha ha
      How pathetic

    1. but, I just had the spoiler from my friend that in Ju On, he’s the one who died first. whoaaaaaaaah
      I can’t watch it! Not my dear Setomaru!!!

  8. yup2 sadly yes.. but nvermind la~ as long it’s not in the real deal. if that happen it would be more interesting haha.. seeing seto-kun run away screaming all along the way hohoho. imagine that. peace gone out of nowhere. ahahaha

    1. Well, he plays a cute freshman who adores the main character Masamune Asuka. He always been bullied because of his girly face (OMG…I love his face…look at the picture…isn’t he cute?). He also likes to fantasizing. He he he
      It’s very funny when he dreams himself as Genji (Crows Zero..have you watch the movie? It’s very recommended. But, Setomaru doesn’t play any role there. It’s a movie starred by Shun Oguri).
      Ahh..I will watch him again tonight (for the 3rd time…)

  9. ow.. i c, mybe i’ll watch it later on.. hope so. good luck for that.. hope the cd would last long hahaha.. kidding.

  10. “Setomaru has a sister one year younger which also follow the entertainment career. Her name is Saori and she’s currently a model.”
    Indeed – but he also has 2nd sister (even younger than both Koji&Sao) – named Arisa🙂 And Sao works mostly with ‘Nonno” model agency.
