THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction

"Hey, nice to meetcha! Introducing everyone's favorite idol, Erika-chan☆ Because I came to help, you're gonna have the strength of a hundred people☆ I wanna ease your nerves, so LEAVE-IT-TO-ERIKA☆"

Character Description

Erika is a wanna-be comedian who likes to laugh and make others laugh. Usually energetic and peppy, Erika has a strong sense of self-confidence. She is quirky and seems to live in a comedy routine, however she is actually a very responsible idol who takes her work seriously and is very dedicated to her comedy; she explains in lines that she views the time before she even goes out onstage as part of the show. Erika's actually a responsible student as well, always listening intently during class (although she enjoys doodling in the textbooks). It seems though that she's often told to take it down a notch during classes by her teachers. Based on lines from cards, it seems she's quite close to her grandmother, who lives in Okayama. The earrings in her [Trendy Maiden] SR are actually from her grandmother, and Erika treasures them.

She likes to treat the Producer as her comedy partner, which is actually how she ended up being scouted as an idol. It seems like she's always on the lookout for comedic rivals, as in a 1koma she mistook Sexy Guilty as another comedy unit. She enjoys watching other comedians, as she believes it's a good learning experience for her own comedy. She's also quite multi-talented, being able to do balloon art in her [T.B. Circus] R+ card.

While Erika's overall quite a confident person, it seems like she gets a little embarrassed when it comes to cute costumes or makeup, and while she has an interest in fashion, she more aims for clothes that are comfortable and easy to move around in. Her notable physical features include her hair (always styled into two braids) and the flower pin that she wears in almost every unawakened card. Erika tends to emphasize the last word she says and her dialogue even has them written in Romaji rather than Hiragana, for example O-MA-KA-SE. She also adds a star “☆” to most of her sentences.

In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Erika is shown to have her lessons with Nagisa Aino and Sanae Katagiri. She participates in the group’s antics with Makino Yagami and Yuriko Ohnishi. She has gotten particularly close to Cathy Graham, as the two seems to work well in improvisation together. Forming a comedy unit, the duo is considered a rival unit against Suzuho Ueda and Emi Namba. This, however, is more of a healthy, non-serious rivalry (akin to that of Nagisa Aino and Kai Nishijima), since all four share the same hobby of entertaining people with comedy, in addition to Sora Nonomura and Miu Yaguchi. In fact, in the 6th Dream LIVE Festival, Erika participated with Emi as a duo named ERI☆EMI.

Trivia and Fan Culture


  • It seems she enjoys eating ten-don. Though, the reason she enjoys eating it may be because ten-don is also a type of comedy act where one repeats the same gag or silly line repeatedly.
  • Erika shares the same birthday with Azuki Momoi and Kyosuke/Yusuke Aoi.
  • Erika is the only initial idol to hail from Okayama, as well as the only unvoiced one. Other Cinderella Girls idols who share the same hometown are Hajime Fujiwara and Yuuki Otokura.
  • At the number of only 3 S Rare cards, Erika is currently the only Cinderella Girls idol whose Mobage S Rare cards all appear in Starlight Stage.
