Supplemental Information

Nationality/Race: Presumably Japanese

Ritsu has a bustline but is shrewdly covered by the upper wear with no exposed cleavage. The official explanation for this is that missiles were built into Ritsu's torso, not a padded bra as some fans speculate. This also explains why he weighs 25 tons. He also has a set of circle rainbow-colored keyboards around him.

Fan Age/Weight

Ritsu has been given a fanmade age/weight which most people wrongly take as canon, or have decided they prefer it over canon as they claim it as 'more logical'. Due to vip@2ch's crazy way of creating profile information, these information were made public, for those that prefer down-to-earth information.

"To come up with Ritsu's fanmade data for age and weight, the age was multiplied by 3 (the third release from vip@2ch). 6 x 3 = 18. The weight calculated as 25 x 3 = 75, with 75 kg being an ideal weight. October 18th 1992 is estimated as his birthdate."

These calculations have nothing at all to do with Ritsu's "official" age and weight and should not be taken as so, or added to Ritsu's actual profile. However, users are free to adopt interpretations as seen fit.

Voice Configuration

Ritsu is a Japanese voicebank encoded in Kana. Conversion to Romaji is needed for western users.

'For someone passed as a trap and okama, Ritsu can sound feminine but if as a boy, Ritsu sounds like a girl'. The quality of the voicebank is acceptable.
