THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls U149 Anime Idol Profile
Hailing from Saga, Koharu is a twelve year-old girl who wishes to become a princess that everyone can love. She originally became an idol because she wanted to try on cute frilly dresses like the ones that princesses wear. Koharu greatly admires princesses, dreams about becoming a princess that is woken up by a prince’s kiss, and she says that she enjoys sleeping because the world of dreams is where everyone can be a princess. Koharu states that she’s always loved princesses, and that every day she dreams of becoming cute and beautiful just like them. During her visual lessons, she is complimented on her smile by the trainers, saying that it’s just like a princess’s smile. In her vocal lessons as well, Koharu practices her singing by singing the theme song from a popular princess movie. Koharu wants to become an idol that brings as much happiness to her fans as possible, and she wants to become a dream that other people can watch on TV like she once did.
Despite desiring to be a popular princess-type idol, Koharu doubts her ability to become the idol she aims to be, stating she's not good at studying and she isn't physically strong like other idols. During one of her lessons, she says that she’s often standing in the corner at school during events like sports festivals or school plays. She feels that if she was all by herself she wouldn't have been able to become an idol since others say she takes it too easy. Koharu says that sometimes she can’t do anything special and that other people have dealt with things for her in the past. It is true that Koharu is very easygoing, like when she drove at her own place while playing a racing video game with other idols, or when she was able to sleep with many idols like Takumi Mukai and Akane Hino talking loudly around her. Koharu says that the best way to make progress in idol and school work is to be relaxed. However, Koharu still tries her hardest and puts a lot of effort into her activities, like constantly practicing her singing every day and getting better at reading sheet music. After talking with Miku Maekawa during a job, Koharu ultimately realized that she’s not just watching idols on stage anymore, she’s an idol herself.
Being the sweet girl that she is, Koharu is very good at giving compliments. In Koharu’s very first 5koma, she is shown giving compliments to the normal trainer, saying that she looks very cute in casual clothes. In the U149 manga, Koharu helped to reassure Chie Sasaki about her good leadership qualities when the other girl was feeling unconfident about how she was leading their group. She also complimented Haru Yuuki about how she looks good in cute clothing when they were dressing up as characters from Alice in Wonderland for a job. She called adult idols like Shin Sato and Miyu Mifune amazing since they can do their jobs as idols so tirelessly without ever wearing out. Koharu says that everyone at the production, from the idols to the trainers to the producer, are all precious parts of her life. In fact, Koharu is so sweet and gentle that she can be seen literally radiating an aura of flowers around her at times in the U149 manga. Koharu is also very thoughtful, and she often thinks of the other idols even when she isn’t with them. She once filled up a magazine about sweets with sticky notes written about how much she wanted to eat the sweets and visit the cafes shown inside with fellow idols like Kaoru Ryuzaki and Momoka Sakurai.
Koharu has also been shown to have an interest in drawing. She says that she enjoys drawing because it’s a way to give the thoughts and dreams in her head shape and allow her to share them with others. In her unawakened SSR, she is shown illustrating a design of the dress that she goes on to wear in the awakened form of the card, and she says that the drawing is a way to capture her hopes and dreams. In one of the 4koma U149 comics, she is shown with a sketchbook where she draws pictures of all the dresses she would one day like to wear on stage, and attempts to design a leopard-print outfit for Risa Matoba. Her designs tend to be very cute and frilly, and some are even sweets and fruit themed.
Never leaving Koharu’s side is her beloved pet iguana Hyou-kun, who she loves so much that she incorporated him into her signature. She often refers to him as "the knight who protects the princess," and doesn't like to let go of him even when she's doing tough dance lessons. Koharu looks up to him, and once wanted him to show her how to do pull-ups with his tail. Koharu once wanted to make Hyou-kun into a cute wedding bouquet, but she realized that it wouldn’t be a good idea to have him get thrown in the air. In an April Fools event in Cinderella Girls, where he was voiced, Hyou-kun told the producer he would protect her. Hyou-kun also loves Koharu very much, and didn’t want to be separated from her during a photoshoot that she was nervous for.
She was the fifth idol to join the "Little Marching Band Girls" unit and uses a set of handbells that she used to play a samba tune with Kaoru Ryuzaki and Chika Yokoyama. She enjoys being a part of the marching band very much, and enjoys marching energetically with Miria Akagi.
