Biographies

THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction

"No! NOOOOOOOO!!! I'll never work! I don't care if it’s being an idol or what, you can't make me! …Wha? I'll be set for life if I become one? I'll live like royalty? R… Really? Uh… maybe you could tell me more?"

THE iDOLM@STER SHINY FESTA Profile Quote

"I don't care if I lose… I wanna go home."

THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile

As if I'd do anything like work~

Anzu is a low-energy idol who loves sleeping and being lazy. She’s always seen carrying around her stuffed animal rabbit. “If I become a successful idol, I can live off the royalties” is the thought that brought her into the world of Idols. For the sake of unearned income, however, she spares no effort.

THE iDOLM@STER Starlit Season Profile

"I'm Anzu Futaba~ Project LUMINOUS? Hmm, feels too much for me~ Huh? It'll be easier once I'm popular? Then let's go for it♪"

THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote

"No! NOO! I don't wanna work! ...Wait, I can get closer to the life of royalty? I'll take that as a yes. I'll be counting on you, Producer!"

Character Description

Anzu is a listless 17-year-old NEET who doesn't believe in work. Anzu has no particular interests other than playing games, anime, manga, and sleeping. She only becomes an idol because she believes she will be able to live the rest of her days off royalties. Her verbal catchphrase is "I wanna go home!", and she frequently wears a shirt that says: "If you work, you lose." She has a close relationship with Kirari Moroboshi.

Anzu uses many tactics to get out of work. Even after evolving her card to Idol form her work ethic doesn't improve, she merely changes her get out of work tactics from whining to trying to smooth talk the Producer. She negotiates towards a person's natural sloth to be lazy with her, or guilt trips them into letting her do nothing. She'll prerecord her singing to play it back again, in a live concert, because she's too lazy to sing the refrain saying "Anzu calls it the Substitution Strategy!!". She has literally hidden from going to work in places around the office, but she switches her hiding places often and plants fake hiding spaces to make her more unpredictable. She doesn't care if her laziness will cause problems for her fellow idols, and will happily refuse to perform in concert or with her musical group. Fortunately, she can be bribed with candy or tricked with the promise of royalty checks.

Anzu doesn't just hate work, she thinks it's a crime against humanity. She envisions utopia is a world where everyone eats junk food, watches anime, plays video games, and reads manga. The goal of her image song is to rally the masses into laziness and never do oppressive work again. Her fourth S Rare+ features her telling her fans she's going to graduate while crying. However, if you look closely, you can see eye drops in her hand. However, she got more cards after that, meaning that either her plan was discovered or that she started liking being an idol.

She complains that it takes too much energy to complain and is never seen without her very old, ratty stuffed rabbit. It goes unsaid whether it has sentimental value to her or is just a convenient pillow. She is a heavy sleeper or at least fakes it to have people leave. Anzu is proud of being so short and believes that growing tall is wasted energy. She doesn’t like the idea of carrying around more weight than she has to, and sees it as being too much work. She's often mistaken for an elementary school student.

Trivia and Fan Culture

Trivia

  • Anzu was voiced on April 18th, 2012 through THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 002 Futaba Anzu.
  • For some reason, her three sizes remain unrevealed. However, Makino Yagami was able to hack into the Production's database to find them.
  • Her shirt in her initial card reads, "You Lose If You Work". Every subsequent shirt features a similar saying:
    • [Sloppy Fairy]: "But I refuse!" (だが断る!). This may be a word-for-word reference to a line spoken by Rohan Kishibe in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable that is considered one of the iconic lines of the series.
    • [Happy Live Work]: "May Sickness" (五月病)
    • [Lazy Kingdom]: "The Elite" (勝ち組)
    • [[Stylish Sakura]+: "I Can Do It If I Try" (やればできるし)
  • Anzu is often, in both fanworks and official art, put in a unit with Kirari Moroboshi, due to their opposite personalities and opposite heights (Kirari is the tallest female character in the franchise, and Anzu is among the shortest). This duo is called Ankira or HappyHappyTwin when working as a unit, and they see each other as unlikely best friends.
  • When faced as a rival in ONE FOR ALL, her image stat specialty is revealed to be Visual.
  • The reason why "Anzu no Uta" has such a mundane, uncreative title is because Anzu was too lazy to think one up.
  • Her stuffed bunny is named "bunny".
  • In Starlight Stage, her image stats are relatively balanced, with a tiny lead in vocal.
  • Anzu lives in a large apartment alone, the rent is paid by her parents, because she was so lazy her parents asked her to live alone, probably to learn responsibility.[1]
  • She shares the same birthday with Fuka Toyokawa.

Fan Culture

  • In spite of her personality, her card was considered top tier by fans during the early days of the game.
