HistoryEditAkashi's parents both died when he was young. His older brother Aoshi has protected him ever since. Akashi wished that it was his brother that had died.
Akashi later enrolled at Kukunochi Academy where he became greatly admired for his piloting skills and looks. During his second year at the academy, he, along with his best friend/classmate Iwato Namito, first year student Mahmu Yuzuki, and temp worker Emiru Hazaki, were all chosen to become pilots for IX. (M3: "STARRY NIGHT")
Emiru has a crush on Akashi. Akashi regrets being unable to realize what was happening to Emiru until it was too late. He blames himself for acting cold and aloof towards Emiru when she had actually been giving hints and clues about what was happening to her.
Tsugumi is in love with Akashi but Akashi seems to be wary of Tsugumi. It appears that the relationship between Akashi and Tsugumi is one sided and that Akashi simply considers Tsugumi as a dear friend.
