|Romaji Name||Yuikawa Itaru|
|Game Debut||Liar! Uncover the Truth|
Itaru Yuikawa is one of the potential liars from Liar! Uncover the Truth.
Itaru grew up in the same hometown as you in the countryside and was often the target of the other children's bullying because he was overweight in elementary school. Due to the fact that you looked down upon bullying, you stood up for Itaru despite being popular and well-liked by your classmates for your strong persona and fashion sense. Your actions were a catalyst for Itaru's feelings, causing him to inevitably fall in love with you. He later confessed his feelings for you, but his questionable word choice caused you to recoil in disgust and immediately reject him. Undeterred, Itaru decided (after his mother remarried) to transform the overweight, "creepy" Itaru Kayama into your "ideal man", Itaru Yuikawa. Over the years, Itaru changed his appearance, personality, and lifestyle according to your ideals using clues you posted on your social media and his connections to those in contact with you.
Itaru's last name was originally Kayama, but was changed to Yuikawa when his mother remarried. After graduating high school, he moved to Tokyo, attended college, and worked as a foreign exchange trader; he had moved to the city and obtained an extremely well-paying job due to the fact that he knew that this was one of the aspects that you looked for in your ideal man. Itaru also changed his speech patterns and actions to cover up the fact that he was from the countryside, presenting you with your ideal image of a cultured, refined city boy who was both easy to get along with and shared many of your same interests.
One evening while eating at his favorite ramen restaurant, he met Sotaro and they instantly competed on who can eat the spiciest ramen (both of them ended up ordering the spiciest bowl, level 99, and couldn't handle it) , thus sparking their intense rivalry, which can especially be seen in the Ninth Liar Arc. He later encountered Tsubasa, another doctor working at Tozai General Hospital (Sotaro's hospital), at the same restaurant whom followed Sotaro and proceeded to flirt with Itaru. However, since Itaru had only ever had eyes for you since childhood, Itaru often ignored her advances and instead focused on bettering himself for the day when he could meet you again.
Perhaps due to the fact that Itaru suspected that you would be there, he attended the matchmaking party. To his surprise, you were one of the attendees, determined to find your ideal man after your breakup with Shizuo. Overjoyed at this unexpected reunion, Itaru believed that this encounter was fate, and while he was certainly happy to see you again, he was shocked that you didn't recognize him. Accepting this positive turn of events, Itaru decided to keep your past relationship a secret from you and put his reinvented persona to the test, determined to get you to fall in love with him after years of toiling away for the one he loved.
Itaru has slightly layered, chin-length, dark brown hair and grey eyes.
- Work Attire: Itaru wears a blue plaid suit, a black vest, a grey and white pinstripe shirt, and charcoal grey tie with white speckle pattern.
- Casual Attire: Itaru wears a long-sleeved white shirt, and a dark blue denim jacket.
- Sleeping Attire: Itaru wears a long-sleeved white shirt with black horizontal stripes.
Itaru is a kind, caring, and incredibly devoted young man who shares many of the same interests as you due to the fact that he had watched over you for years. He also tends to be persistent in pursuing your heart, but keeps his distance from you after you tell him to leave you alone. Although he may appear to be possessive at times, Itaru truly loves you and would do anything, even throw away his old self, to stand by your side as your perfect match.
