"Pleased to meet you. I am called Saionji Kotoka. Though I may be so inexperienced as to not know right from left, please look after producing... eh? My self-introduction is too formal...? ...I see. Greetings ought to be more casual, yes?"
Kotoka is an incredibly polite young woman who gives the Producer an extraordinary degree of respect, as if he was worthy of genuflection. She is aware of the Producer's success as an idol promoter and holds the utmost respect for him. He's called Producer-sama by her. Kotoka speaks very formally, especially when it’s towards the Producer. Aside from her extremely polite way of talking, she never showed signs of her wealthy upbringing. It was revealed in later cards that Kotoka is astonishingly wealthy, to the point that she considered a palace sized mansion to be quaint.
In Starlight Stage, it was confirmed that she is very wealthy; as her family are the owners of a very important business (the Saionji Group), and she was sent directly to the Producer by her father. Although she considered herself very inexperienced in life, she promised to work hard and give it her all to be a good idol. Kotoka appears very formal and kind to the Producer, but he told her to be more casual and less stiff; which she happily agreed to. It was also revealed that she does extra practice to improve her skills when she feels she hasn't performed well enough during her lessons.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Kotoka is viewed as the princess type by other idols. Somewhat of an airhead and utterly playful, she tends to get herself into dangerous situations. She knows absolutely nothing about cooking. When the Producer walks her to her mansion, she admits that he opened up entire worlds for her as an idol.
Kotoka is an idol in the Cute category. Her card availability is Rare. She also received four Rare sets and four S Rare sets with the titles "Enthusiastic Princess", "The Garden’s Spring Breeze", "Heart Sunny Pattern", and "Dazzlingly Brilliant".
Kotoka Saionji appears as a rival in the STAR OF FESTA mode for Honey Sound, Groovy Tune, and Funky Note. She is a S rank rival who can give her Name Card to the player while in the HARD difficulty. Obtaining her Name Card adds 60 points to the player's score after their performance.
