"Honoka Ayase. My interests and skills are both ballet. Having received countless awards, I'm fairly aware of the limits of my expressive power... But I want to be satisfied with myself. Please lend me your guidance!"
Honoka is a ballerina who takes her craft very seriously and aims to be a Prima Ballerina. As she studies ballet, Honoka holds herself to (sometimes unfairly) high standards and devotes herself entirely to dance. She has somewhat of a rigid personality and starts off fairly disdainful of what she considers the less cultured world of idols. However, as she grows as an idol, she begins to break out of her shell and can't help but have fun when she gets into it, and newer cards show her having a more easygoing personality. She takes her work very seriously and often refuses to give something up until she’s mastered it. Additionally, she's still a skilled ballerina after becoming an idol, and it's said she can do stretches anywhere.
It's revealed in Starlight Stage that she became an idol when the Producer reached out to her after a dance practice. Honoka had been having second thoughts about her training, saying that although she was still performing perfectly without mistakes, she simply wasn't having fun anymore. Although she was apprehensive at first, she took his offer and became an idol.
In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Honoka is depicted as being dedicated and friendly to some of her idol friends, even helping Reina to fix her bazooka. However, she is shown as being extremely serious and concentrated during lessons and during acting practice.
She is initially friends with Shinobu, who challenges her to get a stuffed animal from a crane game. She eventually masters this ability and gains enough plushies to give to Shinobu, as well as keep her own ugly cat doll named Pinyakorata. She then meets Yuzu and Azuki on their day off, and proves once again how serious she is about lessons. When she meets up with Shinobu and Yuzu together, the trio sets out to knit. When a bored Yuzu stabs Pinyakorata, Honoka snatches the green cat away from her torture. Since then, the four girls have been usually shown together with Pinyakorata as their major theme. When going to the amusement park, Honoka’s interest in the green cat carried over to a matching hat set, and the quartet decided to also get Pinyakorata hats.
