THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
Among the younger idols, Mai Fukuyama is one of the more mature and composed girls. Despite being ten, she's very responsible, to the point where her school's class and year representatives leave things like class greetings to her.
It was revealed in Starlight Stage that before she became an idol, Mai used to be a child actress. After being encouraged by her mother, Mai decided to try being an idol. She took a liking to the Producer as he reminds Mai of her mother; who always encourages her to try new experiences so that she can find what she enjoys most.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Mai is shown to be good friends and schoolmates with Kaoru Ryuzaki and Chika Yokoyama. She found that she enjoys putting her hair in pigtails. While in the company of her fellow idols, she got to split a melon on the beach and is one of the founding members of the “Little Marching Band Girls” unit, where she sings and helps conduct. Mai participates in lessons with Chika, Chie Sasaki, and Arisa Mochida. She has a role in Chika’s magical girl TV show as “the power of the azure water”.

|Mai: Hello! Fukuyama Mai here. I'll try answering your questions today.|
|Question: How do you spend your days off?|

|Mai: Like going out with my parents or cooking. And I went hiking the other day.|
|Mai: There are a lot of times when I play outside with my friends at school and at the production. We all love to some exercises.|
|Mai: Oh, I also take time to study. After all, school homework and idol lessons are very important.|

|Mai: If I take off my ponytail... I think it would be around my hips now. It's quite long. #DereMail|
|Mai: Which is why, I always ask my mom for help in taking care of this. It really feels good when she combs my hair.|
