Ryuutarou Mine

4thyear Violin student. His father owns a Chinese restaurant Uraken right next to the university. He is something of a prima donna whose violin technique is seen by himself to be deeply personal but by others to be simply sloppy. He sees Chiaki as a rival for attention and tries hard to compete with his Princely image of him. He likes Nodame for her freespirited ways. He is the concertmaster of the S Orchestra conducted by Chiaki and a violinist in the RS Orchestra. He is also the one who thought that performing like Jimi Hendrix and adding a touch of rock would give quality despite that it looks dumb in an original orchestra as stated by Chiaki. He is currently dating Kiyora Miki.
