|“||Up until just recently, I lived in the Star Kingdom. Can you see how I twinkle? I want to become your star of hope! I'm Kira Saeki, the youngest member of the group! I'm a third year in middle school and I'm 14!||”|
Kira Saeki (佐伯 希星 Saeki Kira) is one of the members of Shōnen Hollywood. He is a former child actor and his parents are very wealthy. He's really serious about being an idol and has the most experience although he is the youngest in the group. His Hollywood Color is blue.
Kira has light brown hair with his fringe combed to the left side of his face. His hair is like Kakeru's, but much neater. He has sky blue eyes. Kira is normally wearing a white and blue jumpsuit with a white-and-blue striped shirt underneath. All his fans, even the boys, say he's cute.
Kira can be very childish at times, but takes his job as an idol more serious then the others members of the group. His dream is to find a job where he can perform in front of people, even when he's middle-aged. Despite being the youngest, Kira actually behaves more mature than the other boys and has the most professional experience, although this leads to him seeming more like an arrogant brat. In front of the fans, he acts like a little boy because that is what his fans imagine him as. Because of this, Kira does the most amount of work among the boys. Originally, Kira was slightly hostile and unfriendly to the boys, but eventually bonds with them, especially with Tomii.
As a child, Kira was taught to be always the number one and what to say to people in order to earn their favor. Until joining Shounen Hollywood, he wanted to live up to that.
Kira was introduced to the entertainment industry by his mother at a very young age without actually having a say in it. He got famous acting in a series called Peanuts Tofu Shop as the shop owner's son. Ever since then, Kira had been working himself to death. When he lost a baby tooth, he had to get a fake one and throughout his elementary school years, Kira had to skip field trips most of the time.
If he got nervous during location shoots, Kira would have an upset stomach and his mother would solve this by asking him to bring a diaper. All this happened when Kira was still in elementary school. He was praised as a genius then, but was ignored by society once he wasn't a child anymore. Despite all the sacrifices and hard work he'd done, Kira still wanted to be part of the entertainment industry.
In the first episode, Kira attempted to win the President's favor. He got praised but shot down. While practising for the Air Boys play, the President regarded Kira as "creepy" when acting because the way he spoke his lines sounded as if he was speaking them as someone else (his mother, namely). Eventually, Kira confessed to Daichi (from the original Shounen Hollywood) that he found himself boring and unentertaining, but Daichi told him there was nothing wrong with that and helps him get over it. Now, Kira resolves to like himself more.
At the beginning of the series, Kira didn't seem to have much of a bond with any of the boys, but after the Air Boys play, he seemed to be quite friendly with Tomii especially, such as joining him to prank Kakeru, Makki and Shun during the summer camp, or having Tomii give him a piggyback ride.
Kira and Shun don't get along too well, but they are the two members who snark the most, and sometimes, together.
Kira insults Makki a lot, and Makki would tease him in return. They usually act friendly before fans, though, leading them to portray the duo as having a brotherly relationship.
