In episode one, he first appears as HAYATO in Haruka's flashback, she was very ill and his song saved her when she first heard him sing 'Nanairo no Compass' (Seven-coloured Compass). He finally appears at the end of the episode outside the gazebo when Haruka chases a cat who took her hankerchief. When she sees him, Haruka at first believes that he is HAYATO and tells him that she is a huge fan of him and that she loves his songs, but he shoots her down by coldly telling her that he is not HAYATO and introduces himself as 'Ichinose Tokiya'.
In episode two, is the continuation of Tokiya being mistaken for HAYATO. Saotome appears out of nowhere and explains to Haruka that Tokiya is the identical twin brother of HAYATO. When his roomate, Otoya, is having trouble coming up with lyrics for the recording test, he appears over Otoya, clearly agitated and tells him that he cannot focus with him being noisy. Otoya, who remains optimistic and friendly pesters him for advice for writing lyrics and Tokiya reluctantly gives in to Otoya's plea. He tells Otoya that he is only going to say it once and proceeds to explain the steps of writing lyrics. Tokiya's explanation starts getting too complicated for Otoya to follow that he loses concentration much to his annoyance.
Tokiya is then seen watching Otoya singing 'BRAND NEW MELODY' in the recording studio through TV. After the song, he is walking out of the school building, supposedly feeling degraded, and confused about himself.
In episode three, Tokiya is the recording studio, having had just finished a recording test. He walks down the corridor and bumps into his teacher, Hyuga-sensei. Hyuga-sensei tells him that his singing is perfect, but he wouldn't listen to his song. Tokiya gets confused and asks why. Hyuga-sensei replies that there is something Tokiya lacks; his songs do not have any heart. Tokiya then bumps into Haruka and they exchange looks in silence. He is then in his room when Otoya prepares himself to do some baking. He asks Otoya what he is up to and Otoya explains that Haruka is feeling down, due to his classmates misunderstanding her skills and has decided to make her a cake to cheer her up with Natsuki's help. Tokiya asks Otoya what he thinks of Haruka and Otoya replies saying that Haruka is outgoing, cheerful, strong and always tries her best and that he admires her for that.
In episode four, Tokiya is in the school building when he spots Haruka running about the school grounds searching for the missing pieces of Ren's lyrics assignment as he is closing the window. He is later seen listening to Ren's song on top of the school, 'Sekai no Hate Made Believe Heart' (To the Ends of the Earth, Believe Heart) and bumping into Haruka in the school corridors where they exchange looks in silence.
In episode five, Tokiya asks Otoya whether Haruka made Ren write the lyrics he ripped up. Otoya tells him that he admires Haruka and that when she was gathering up the pieces of Ren's lyrics, her feelings reached him that way. He also says that she always tries her best especially when it comes to music. He is later on his way to the school's tuck shop when he bumps into Haruka (who went to buy some water for Syo). He asks her what she is doing and she replies that she is helping Syo overcome his acrophobia and he compliments that she is a caring person and says it must be nice for Haruka to have time to spend worry about others.
In episode six, Tokiya bumps into Haruka, (who was on her way to see HAYATO's concert) in the school corridor, causing her to drop her bag and the contents in her bag to spill. As she gathers her contents, Tokiya picks up the HAYATO CD, stares at it for a while before returning it to Haruka. After Haruka tells him that she is going to see HAYATO's live concert, he stands up and tells her to be careful on her way there before leaving. This confuses and agitates Haruka who had been told the same thing by her friends. Tokiya is later seen in a dressing room in his HAYATO attire when his manager, Himura, comes to check up on him. While performing as HAYATO on stage, Haruka (who is in the audience with Syo and Natsuki) comments that his voice is beautiful, but it doesn't seem to fill her with emotion unlike the first time she saw him, saying his singing doesn't have a heart. Tokiya does a twirl on stage, which is caused by the injure that was revealed before and suddenly drops the mic in the process, shocking himself, the fans, his manager, and the band. As his fans cheer for him to hang in there, Natsuki is accidentally reverted into Satsuki when one of the fans bumps him, causing his glasses to fall off and get crushed.
Thunder and lightning clash as Satsuki makes his appearance and the crowd disperses, except for Haruka and Syo. Satsuki easily fights off the security guards and confronts Tokiya on stage. He introduces himself as the 'dark side' of Natsuki and tells Tokiya, 'You're in the spotlight, but your true feelings hide in the pitch black shadows' and that it pisses him off. He then tells Tokiya to listen to his song to show him what it means to have emotion, and not wanting to start a brawl with Satsuki, Tokiya nods his head then calmly tells the band to let Satsuki perform. While Satsuki performs his song, 'Orion de SHOUT OUT' (SHOUT OUT at Orion), Tokiya is backstage watching his performance.
After Satsuki is reverted back into Natsuki (Syo placed Natsuki's Piyo-chan hat back on his head which has glasses), Haruka runs after Natsuki and Syo, but trips over a cable due to her klutziness. Tokiya catches Haruka as she falls forward. When they come face-to-face, Haruka gets embarrassed and over-excited upon being extremely close to her favourite idol until she notices Tokiya's bandaged ankle (she saw it too when he was 'Ichinose Tokiya'). 'Ichinose-san...' says Haruka and Tokiya freezes having had been discovered. Before Haruka could ask him anymore, she is interrupted by Syo who yells at her to hurry up. As Haruka runs off to rejoin Natsuki and Syo, Tokiya watches after her silently.
Tokiya is demoted from S-Class to A-Class and is avoiding Haruka. Later she try's to comfort him about the lack of heart in his songs, saying that she had a similar problem when the rumors about her circulated. He then coldly scoffs, for he feels that only he can understand his own emotions and tells her that they are not the same, saying he was tired of her talking like she understood him. He then leaves after telling her to leave him alone.
In episode eight, everyone goes to Saotome's private resort for a break and to decide on their partners for the graduation audition. Haruka is eager to ask Tokiya to be her graduation audition partner, but due to their conversation from the previous episode, she feels a bit awkward and vice-versa. On her way to the beach house, she bumps into Tokiya and they exchange silent glances. Tokiya is later seen in his beach house reminiscing about the conversation he had with Haruka in the previous episode. He is later seen walking on the beach in the sunrise when Haruka spots him. When he sees her, he tells Haruka that he had been thinking about her and apologises for hurting her.
He then proceeds to tell her about how, not long after he debuted, he lost his way. Then he was involved in an accident. While hospitalized he heard a small child singing Amazing Grace and joined in; he later sang with all of the hospital children as they asked him to sing. He then confesses that music is all he has and that he'll do anything to sing. Haruka then begs him not to give up, saying that she loves his songs. She then tearfully begs him to sing. This touches him, and makes him realize that he can indeed start over from he beginning. He tells her that he will try to start again, making her smile. As he gazes at her, his eyes fill with tears, and he genuniely smiles at her with love for the first time.
In episode nine, having had been encouraged by Haruka during the school excursion, Tokiya is performing 'BELIEVE MY VOICE' in class which everyone (especially Haruka) enjoys. He is later summoned to Saotome's office where he is praised for his improvements since the trip. Saotome and Ringo-sensei tell Tokiya that his improved singing could get him back to S-class (in Episode seven, he got demoted to A-class due to singing still having no heart). He later bumps into Haruka where they exchange compliments and when he leaves, Haruka flirtatiously twirls her skirt and at the same time gets over-excited when she realises that if she is partners with him, that would mean her dream of writing songs for HAYATO would come true.
Tokiya is later seen in his room when Otoya informs him that he has chosen Haruka as his partner and asks if he has thought of anyone. Clearly annoyed, Tokiya refuses to tell Otoya of whom he is going to choose and reminisces through his conversation with Haruka during the island trip. At the end of the episode, Tokiya finally decides to choose Haruka as his graduation audition partner, thus becoming the sixth person to enlist her. Haruka is informed of this through Ringo-sensei and gets shocked.
In episode ten, Haruka summons the guys who enlisted her as their graduation audition partner to the third music room. Tokiya is the last one to arrive and Otoya gets annoyed that he didn't tell him that he was also going to choose Haruka. Haruka finally appears and reveals to the guys that she wrote a song for the six of them to sing together as a unit. She tells them that having to choose just one of them, she couldn't bring herself as each of them has helped her get to where she is now. This is overheard by Ringo-sensei who informs Saotome of this. Saotome agrees that a group debut is a good idea, but prefers Haruka to stick to the rules and just choose one of them, much to the guy's dismay.
Tokiya is then seen with Ren by the lake where they discuss about Haruka. Ren asks Tokiya why he chose Haruka and Tokiya replies that she gave him hope. Tokiya and Ren appear on the helipod where they convince Saotome to listen to Haruka's arrangement, Tokiya reminding Saotome of Haruka's musical talent. After the song, Saotome tells them that he loves the song asks what the title is, leaving everyone clueless. So Saotome names the song 'Maji LOVE 1000%' (Serious LOVE 1000%) before leaving in his chopper, meaning that he has given permission for the boys to sing together for the graduation audition.
Tokiya is later seen in his penthouse fast asleep on the couch just as Himura enters to pick him up. Himura spots Tokiya's cellphone on the coffee table flashing. He at first assumes that Tokiya has a girlfriend until he unlocks the screen, revealing Saotome's name. Shocked, he glances at Tokiya suspiciously.
In episode eleven, Tokiya is in his penthouse highlighting a script for a drama he is starring in as HAYATO. His vision suddenly blurs, but he shakes it off. Himura picks him up and on the way to the workplace, he informs Tokiya of a list of dramas, photoshoots, autograph signing, TV shows and commercials he has planned for him. Unaware that his manager has discovered his secret, Tokiya is shocked and tells Himura that he already has plans and that he told him about it, but is shot down when Himura asks him what the 'plans' are, leaving him lost with words.
Back at the academy, while waiting for Tokiya, Syo comments on how everything isn't gelling up due to Tokiya's absence and Otoya tells them that Tokiya has a 'part-time job' where he leaves straight after classes and doesn't come back till late at night or in the morning. Masato begins to get suspicious of Tokiya's constant absence until Tokiya finally shows up, clearly exhausted. He apologises for being late and Haruka reveals that she has written a new song for them to sing. They excitedly tell her that it is amazing and decide to write lyrics straightaway. The song becomes 'Mirai Chizu' (Map of the Future). He is seen with the boys and Haruka by the lake where his vision starts to blur again. He nearly passes out, until Otoya asks whether he is alright. He assures everyone that he is fine and promises to meet up again at the same time for practice. After everyone leaves (except for Haruka), Haruka asks Tokiya again if he is alright which he brushes it off, but when he stands up, he suddenly sways and falls against Haruka's shoulder. She stands him up and touches his forehead, exclaiming that he's burning. Worried, she tells Tokiya not to overwork himself which he agrees before making his leave. As Tokiya heads back, a paparazzi is hiding in the bushes and takes several snapshots of Tokiya.
After a commercial, Tokiya is heading back to the car with Himura, who praises him for his hard work and tells him that he has a day off tomorrow. By this time, Tokiya's exhaustion has reached it's limit. When Tokiya collapses, Himura runs over and helps him up, but he tries to brush him off by telling his manager he has plans already and that he cannot break this promise. Tokiya attempts to head back to Saotome Academy on his own, but he succumbs to his exhaustion and ends up passing out in Himura's arms. Tokiya later wakes up to find himself back in his penthouse and checks his phone where he finds out he has a lot of missed calls from Otoya. He tries to call Otoya back, but Otoya doesn't pick up, for his phone was on a towel which muffled the sound. Tokiya quickly dresses and is about to leave when the president of the agency enters his penthouse. He tells him that he still has a fever and that he has called a doctor. The president also informs him that Himura told him that it was his fault that Tokiya passed out like that and reveals that he found out that Tokiya is a student at Saotome Academy. Tokiya tries to explain to the president that he tried to inform him of this and apologises, only to be yelled at the president, who tells him that he should be on his knees thanking him. Tokiya tells the president his desire to sing and is reminded of the HAYATO concert (see Episode Six) which was a disaster, but is interrupted when the president suddenly collapses due to a heart attack. Tokiya frantically calls for an ambulance.
At the hospital, while the president is under treatment, Tokiya is in the waiting room reminiscing of the events that happened with Haruka. He pulls out the score of 'Mirai Chizu' (Map of the Future) and reads through the lyrics. The president then calls for him and they have a heart-to-heart talk. Tokiya is relieved that the president has survived the heart attack. The president tells Tokiya that he knows that he is a nice guy then says he himself doesn't have any kids and that Tokiya has always been like a son to him and he didn't want to lose him. He apologises for stomping on his feelings, then asks for forgiveness, but Tokiya silently shakes his head. The president tells him that leaving his agency meant he was throwing HAYATO away, prompting Tokiya to say 'I'm going to be Ichinose Tokiya', (he was called HAYATO by Himura and the president) making it clear to the president that he no longer wants to be HAYATO, but an idol under his real name. Hearing this, the president asks him if he is 'tired' of HAYATO and Tokiya tells him no, for he just found 'hope'. The president finally gives his consent for Tokiya to leave his agency.
As Tokiya leaves the emergency room, he bumps into Himura, who had been notified of the president's heart attack. He asks Tokiya if he really is leaving and apologises to him for ignoring his desire to sing. Tokiya forgives him and just before leaving, Himura tells him not to overwork himself. Tokiya catches a cab to get back to Saotome Academy and finally manages to contact Otoya. Before Tokiya could tell Otoya his whereabouts, their call is suddenly cut short for his phone ran out of battery. Unfortunately, there is a traffic congestion due to falling debris, causing Tokiya's return to the academy to be delayed.
In episode twelve, Tokiya is seen in Haruka's dream as HAYATO and himself as she pleads for him to come back quickly. Tokiya is then seen in the taxi on his way back to the academy when he hears the news about his retirement of 'HAYATO' and him being a student at Saotome Academy. The news is also heard by Haruka and the guys. As they gather in a practice room, the guys are venting out their anger and distrust towards Tokiya for lying to them and believing that he is trying to make them look like fools. They also doubt whether to still include him in their group debut.
After Haruka sees a white bird, similar to what she saw in her dream, she runs outside the dorms where she finds Tokiya, who has just arrived. Tokiya apologises to Haruka for making her worry and tells her that he has returned to see everyone. Haruka assures him that they'll surely understand, but they are interrupted by the rest of the guys who turn up and angrily confront Tokiya for lying to them. 'So, you finally show up, but it was just to whine to the little lamb?' says Ren. Haruka tries to defend Tokiya, but Ren tells her to zip it and demands to Tokiya, calling him by his first name (he usually called Tokiya 'Icchi') to speak for himself. Tokiya apologises, but Syo shouts at him that they are trying to make their debut, how everything is riding on Haruka's songs and how they've put so much work into it. Tokiya continues his apology confessing that he hid the fact that he was HAYATO and lying to them all and begs for forgiveness. He explains that his previous agency wasn't pushing his singing career and how he intended to give it all up and start over in Saotome Academy. He says that he realised that he should just sing the songs the way they are and that it was Haruka's words that saved him. Tokiya pleads to the guys to let him sing with them and that there is nothing false about the way he feels.
Otoya calms down slightly, but Ren is still unconvinced and says 'Together? Can we trust you? You say this to us now, all this time...' He tells Tokiya that he once said, "Each of us thinks we can sing the lady's (Haruka) songs best" and asks if his words are a lie. Tokiya agrees that he thought of it that way before and tells them that he has changed because of Haruka. He tells them that Haruka has always wished for them to sing, and that it doesn't matter whether it is just one person or who is the best. Tokiya also says that it was his first time to realise this and that he'll never be able to meet anyone like them again, saying that he has finally found a place where he can sing. He then turns to Haruka and tells her that there is something he has always wanted to tell her for the longest time; he loves... the music she makes and pleads to her to let him sing her songs. Haruka tearfully agrees and the other guys forgive him with Ren saying 'So, are we finally at the starting line?' Syo strangles Tokiya as his way of forgiving him.
Saotome, having had overheard Tokiya's apology through the security cameras then announces the group's debut and names them ST☆RISH. They are called into his office where Saotome reveals to the boys that they have already passed the graduation audition (Saotome already had heard their song 'Maji LOVE 1000%' (Serious LOVE 1000%)) and can debut straightaway much to their surprise. Tokiya tells Haruka that they will be debuting as seven with her as their songwriter, but is shot down when Saotome tells the boys that Haruka cannot be their songwriter.
In episode thirteen, after Saotome tells ST☆RISH that Haruka cannot be their composer, Tokiya pleads to Saotome that he wants to sing Haruka's songs, but he ignores them. He is then seen outside the school with ST☆RISH, Tomochika and Haruka, where the guys vent out their anger and frustration of Saotome's decision of excluding Haruka from the debut. When the guys agree to not debut unless Haruka is their songwriter, Haruka pleads to them not to think that way and encourages them to go on with their debut and that she'll eventually catch up to them. The next day, ST☆RISH purposely miss their rehearsal for their debut, still bearing a grudge against Saotome for what he said to Haruka the other day. While Otoya and Syo are venting out how they really want to sing Haruka's songs, Tokiya says that Saotome may have already made his next move and Ren saying that he would burst in any moment. The door suddenly bursts open and instead of Saotome, it is Tomochika. She frantically informs ST☆RISH that Haruka has ran away.
After locating Haruka at her grandmother's house, Tokiya and ST☆RISH travel there to convince her to return to the academy by singing 'Mirai Chizu' (Map of the Future), one of the songs she composed for them. After the song, Otoya tells Haruka that Tomochika told them that she might've gone to her grandmother's house and Tokiya explains that they have come to take her back. After each of the members of ST☆RISH tell her that they need her, Tokiya declares that he wants to continue singing her songs. Touched by their words, Haruka tearfully declares that she is done running away and agrees to be their one and only songwriter, and that she won't lose to anyone. As she happily weeps, Tokiya is seen standing over her with Masato and with the other guys surrounding her and comforting her.
Saotome as usual, appears out of the blue and reveals to everyone that he never planned on cutting Haruka from the program and the whole thing was just an act. It was a test to see whether she was worthy enough to be their songwriter and to teach her the importance of being a professional. After Saotome announces that Haruka from now on, will write their songs, Tokiya and the other guys celebrate and agree to debut, now that Haruka is officially their songwriter.
He is finally seen with ST☆RISH doing the group huddle and hi-fiving Haruka as they proceed to go on stage and make their debut with their song, 'Maji LOVE 1000%' (Serious LOVE 1000%).
In episode one, Tokiya makes his first appearance when he bumps into Haruka in the corridor of the Master Course dorms, causing him to drop his boxes. He briefly scolds her for her klutziness before smiling and apologising that he cannot rub off the cold and harsh attitude of his. He also tells Haruka that he looks forward to working with her in the Master Course. He is later seen in the main hall with Otoya, Masato and Ren. After Otoya accidentally reveals how happy he is to be near Haruka, Tokiya warns him that idols are not supposed to fall in love or otherwise they would be fired. Natsuki and Syo show up with Natsuki blurting out how happy he is that they are under the same roof as Haruka, making Tokiya agitated that Natsuki doesn't seem to care about the 'no-love rule'. Haruka finally appears and reveals to ST☆RISH that over the holidays, she had written each of them an individual song while thinking of them. He appears amazed that she was able to compose six different songs and agrees with Syo that they have to write lyrics worthy of her songs.
Saotome appears and welcomes them to the Master Course. He introduces them to another idol group called QUARTET KNIGHT who will be their mentors. He watches QUARTET KNIGHT perform 'POISON KISS' as their introduction. He and Otoya are assigned to one of the members of QUARTET KNIGHT, Kotobuki Reiji. When Reiji gives him the nickname, 'Toki', Tokiya appears uncomfortable with that nickname. Another member of QUARTET KNIGHT, Mikaze Ai, comments that Tokiya had a lot of work when he was HAYATO and Ren cheekily turns to him since he is the most experienced out of ST☆RISH. Learning that they have to share a room with their mentors, Tokiya gets annoyed when he sees that his belongings have been pushed into a far corner and appears uncomfortable when he learns that he and Otoya have to share a bunk bed.
In episode two, Tokiya is with ST☆RISH wandering about the Master Course grounds after dance practice. He is the first to hear Cecil's voice and stops in his tracks to listen to Cecil sing his song, 'Ai no Reincarnation' (Reincarnation of Love). Tokiya and ST☆RISH spot Haruka following Cecil's song. Cecil then makes his appearance, startling him and ST☆RISH. When Cecil kisses Haruka's hand, Tokiya is shocked and furious along with ST☆RISH. Cecil then attempts to kiss Haruka and ST☆RISH, in a fit of jealousy, comes charging up to them to separate them. Tokiya shields Haruka from Cecil with Masato while the other guys pull him off her. Otoya asks Haruka if she knows Cecil and when she replies that she met him several times in her dreams, she gets embarrassed and Tokiya and Masato stare at her with confusion. Saotome appears and startles him, Masato and Haruka to explain Cecil's presence. Saotome introduces Cecil as the 'Prince of Agnapolis' the land of music and that he had scouted him. He tells ST☆RISH and Haruka that Cecil from today onwards will be joining them in the Master Course before leaving in his chopper.
When they have tea with Cecil, Cecil reveals that he knows every one of them and he tells Tokiya that his personality is like a reflection, reflecting his inner feelings and desire, much to Tokiya's amazement and surprise. Cecil then declares that he has no desire to become an idol and is just here to sing Haruka's songs much to everyone's shock. When Cecil makes another attempt to kiss Haruka, ST☆RISH are thrown into another fit of jealousy and separates them. Tokiya sheilds Haruka from Cecil with Ren, while the others pull Cecil off her, until they are interrupted by the arrival of the fourth and final member of QUARTET NIGHT, Camus, who introduces himself as a Count who serves the Queen of his home country, Permafrost and that he will be the mentor for Cecil from today onwards.
They later go outside to do idol fundemental training where it is turned into a challenge by Cecil. ST☆RISH is beatened by Cecil in a card game and he comments on how Cecil is so smart and fast until Masato realises that the card Cecil picked were all incorrect. He doesn't show any sympathy for Cecil when he is dragged off by Camus.
In episode three, Tokiya is with ST☆RISH and Haruka when Syo comes running down the hallway and excitedly reveals to everyone that he has been invited to star in a two-hour special of the 'Prince of Fighting' series. When Cecil asks if idols do more than sing, Syo gets agitated and explains that idols do a lot of work in order to get themselves recognised. Tokiya, by that time, has been appearing in commercials and dramas lately, while Ren has been doing model work. He is not seen in the rest of the episode.
In episode four, Masato has been invited to audition for an upcoming historical musical, The Singing Swordsman of Justice. While ST☆RISH (minus Tokiya) reads the script, they imagine themselves as the characters in the musical. Tokiya is comically imagined as the hero's lover. He is later seen in Masato and Ren's room, where Ren shows the guys a writing Masato did the other night. He had written the word 'Embrace' in large words, meaning he was indeed having trouble with that scene of the musical. Tokiya is then seen in a practice room with ST☆RISH just as Masato returns. Tokiya robes himself in a woman's kimono and tells Masato that he will succeed with his audition. When Masato gets confused and shocked and asks why Tokiya is dressed like that, Syo explains that Tokiya is the most experienced and has agreed to play the role of the lover. Masato finally agrees to let ST☆RISH help him practice for his audition. Tokiya really gets into his character as the lover and Syo compliments his acting skills. Masato freezes when he has to embrace Tokiya, causing him to get slightly agitated and orders Masato to start the scene over again. The act goes well for the second round and Masato nearly succeeds in embracing Tokiya, but fails. 'I'm sorry Ichinose!' says Masato, 'I cannot embrace you.' This shocks and offends Tokiya. Being a perfectionist as always, he defends his acting skills saying, 'Wh-Why not? My acting should be perfect...' Cecil asks why Tokiya is playing the role of the woman which annoys him and he explains that there is no woman so he's doing it until Cecil mentions Haruka. Remembering that Haruka is the only girl in the dorms, ST☆RISH decide to bring Haruka in to help Masato which is turned down. When Masato tells ST☆RISH that he will do something about his acting, Tokiya and the other guys appear more concerned for him.
In episode five, Tokiya, Masato and Ren join Natsuki and Syo who are watching Otoya singing 'TRUST MY DREAM' while playing his guitar. When Natsuki tells the guys that Otoya disappears sometimes, Syo assumes that he has been doing voice training and Tokiya exclaims 'Without telling us?' but is doubted by Ren. After the song, Tokiya sternly reminds him of recording he has today and warns him that if he doesn't hurry, he'll be late, causing Otoya to flip and panic. After Haruka discovers Otoya's whereabouts outside the agency, she informs ST☆RISH who immediatley show concern for Otoya. He is then seen going down the corridor when he bumps into Otoya who is carrying a box of toys to donate for the bazaar his school is running. He invites Tokiya to come along, but Tokiya tells him that he was work to do that day. Tokiya is seen again at the gates of Otoya's school with the other guys dressed in bear costumes, clearly humiliated. He tells Otoya to not act like a stranger and forgives him, then asks how long they are supposed to be dressed like this and Masato tells him that they have to do it for the sake of the children.
In episode six, Tokiya is having tea with ST☆RISH when Ren informs them that he will be appearing on a popular fashion show, the Japan Boys Collection. When Otoya asks Tokiya what the Japan Boys Collection is, he exclaims, 'How can you not know when working in this industry?' clearly shocked to learn that there was someone who has never heard of the Japan Boys Collection since it is so popular. He explains to Otoya that the Japan Boys Collection is a fashion show which features 'real clothes' for men and Syo finishes off the explanation that male idols, models and actors are mainly featured on this fashion show. He does not appear in the rest of the episode.
In episode seven, when Natsuki informs ST☆RISH of his gravure ad job, Tokiya and the other guys are skeptical about Natsuki's job as it is extremely mature and Natsuki's image doesn't fit the job. Ren comments that it is different from what he expected of Natsuki and Tokiya says that it is the complete opposite. Haruka later shows up and informs Syo that Natsuki's job was actually meant for his other persona; Satsuki. Syo and Haruka reluctantly explain the circumstances of Natsuki's split personality to ST☆RISH. Tokiya, along with ST☆RISH is shocked when they learn that Natsuki's glasses are the trigger to his split personality. Tokiya is immediately reminded of the HAYATO concert (see Season One, Episode Six) when he first encountered Satsuki. He clearly remembered that Natsuki wasn't wearing his glasses that time and asks why his personality changes. Syo replies that he doesn't know and Natsuki doesn't even remember anything that happens while he is Satsuki. 'So that's why Shinomiya-san never speaks about the concert...' says Tokiya. Syo also warns them that once Natsuki becomes Satsuki, there is no stopping him and the only way to turn him back into Natsuki is to put his glasses back on. Tokiya is seen in a recording studio the next day with Otoya and Syo. Syo recieves a text message from Haruka informing him that Natsuki's photoshoot has started and starts to worry along with Otoya. Tokiya sternly tells them that worrying will affect their work and to focus on their job. When Natsuki accidentally reverts himself into Satsuki and is about to make another attempt to kiss Haruka, Tokiya, along with Otoya and Syo interrupt him, and under the assumption that Natsuki is still Satsuki, Syo cheerfully tells him that they had finished their work earlier than they had expected and decided to watch his photoshoot. When Satsuki turns around, Tokiya freezes in surprise. After Satsuki attacks Haruka when she attempts to revert him back into Natsuki, Syo runs up to Satsuki, only to end up playing cat and mouse with him. Tokiya watches Satsuki chase Syo around the roof then frantically calls Masato and Ren to join them on the roof as soon as possible. Masato asks if something happened, Tokiya tells him that he will explain later and abruptly hangs up. When Otoya confronts Satsuki (who somersaulted onto the roof of the wooden canopy), he tries to revert him back into Natsuki, but is knocked off, causing him to drop the glasses. Tokiya saves Natsuki's glasses and hurls them at Ren who catches them and throws them at Syo who is catapulted onto the wooden canopy by Masato. Syo nearly succeeds into putting the glasses back onto Satsuki, but Satsuki flips out of the way. He grabs the netting from the wooden canopy and hurls it onto Tokiya, Masato and Ren, trapping them underneath. Tokiya and ST☆RISH attempt to chase him, but are locked on the roof while Satsuki drags Haruka off.
After Satsuki is reverted back into Natsuki, Tokiya is with ST☆RISH watching his photoshoot. The next day, after Natsuki informs Haruka that his photoshoot was a success, he goes off to practice and Tokiya and ST☆RISH tell Haruka of how surprised they are that Natsuki performed extremely well in the photoshoot with Haruka saying that Satsuki may have understood Natsuki a bit more.
In episode eight, Tokiya, ST☆RISH, Haruka and QUARTET KNIGHT arrive at a private resort owned by the agency to break from work.

Tokiya takes Haruka to a festival. Before they can try the stalls, Haruka's stomach suddenly growls which surprises him. He buys takoyaki for Haruka and comments that it is shocking that she is very incapable of taking care of herself when she is serious with work. When Haruka hesitates, he tells her that the takoyaki will get cold and shoves one into her mouth. They later try out the stalls and whenever he smiles, Haruka starts blushing. As they leave the festival, Haruka thanks Tokiya for taking her to the festival as she had a lot of fun. She also compliments that the song Tokiya sang on the commercial was wonderful and that it was a little different from the songs that he had sung before. Tokiya explains to Haruka about HAYATO being part of him, and how he needed to accept that part of him in order to sing her songs. Haruka tells him that he is really amazing, and that she had no idea he had been working extremely hard. When she then declares that she will make a song that would be able to beat HE★VENS and that she will not let ST☆RISH get disbanded, Tokiya asks what makes her say such words, Haruka goes all silent and he tells her to calm down. She gets lost with her words and sinks onto the ground. Tokiya catches her on time.

Haruka bursts into tears and comments that the song was wonderful. ST☆RISH reveal that they were planning on inviting her to watch fireworks with them and that they left it up to Tokiya. Natsuki asks Tokiya what he had been doing all this time and Tokiya refuses to answer making ST☆RISH suspicious. Ren places his arm around Tokiya saying 'Icchi, you'd better not be trying to get ahead of us,' while Cecil grabs his other arm, looking annoyed and jealous. ST☆RISH then begins to interrogate Tokiya out of jealousy on what exactly he had been up to with Haruka, but they are interrupted by the firework display.

HE★VENS barges into their dressing room believing they have won already, and Eiichi proceeds to make another attempt to take Haruka away, which is stopped by Syo. He appears surprised when Haruka makes it clear to Eiichi that no matter what will happen, she will never stop being ST☆RISH's composer and that ST☆RISH sings her songs more wonderfully than anyone else. HE★VENS then leave and when ST☆RISH ask Haruka whether she's alright with that, she encourages them to sing their hearts out and give it their all, even if it means for them to be disbanded.
