- Online Character Profile
Nichika Nanakusa is described as "everyone's little sister" with a strong spirit and adept at getting people to spoil her. She has a strong admiration for idols, and would sometimes show off a competitive side that refuses any sort of compromise. She’s in her first year of high school and works part-time at a record store.
She is energetic and passionate with a bit of a cheeky (sometimes to the point of being rude) side, but otherwise pretty ordinary in terms of talent. She's a huge fan of idols, and wants to be just as good as her favorite idol, Nami Yakumo, who released one song and disappeared. However, Nichika has a hidden side that struggles a lot with anxiety and low confidence. Later in her route, she states that she only successfully became an idol and gained fans because she "got lucky", and she's concerned her luck will run out.
She is Hazuki Nanakusa's little sister, who said she could be an idol as long as she won WING.
Nichika Nanakusa was first revealed in day 2 of THE IDOLM@STER SHINY COLORS 2ndLIVE STEP INTO THE SUNSET SKY along with Mikoto Aketa, the other member of the idol unit SHHis.
Her profile was also added to the official website of THE iDOLM@STER Shiny Colors on March 22, 2021. She later became available in the game as of April 5, 2021. Players who logged in to the game from that date until March 20, 2021 recieved 5 copies of Nichika's P-R card.
On April 30, 2021, her P-R card was added to the permanent Platinum Gacha card pool.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- Her birthday is on July 26th, the day the arcade game was released in 2005 and the date of the franchise's anniversary. She also shares the same birthday with Kohaku Okuzora.
- The Nanakusa siblings' father passed away some time ago. Their mother is currently hospitalized for an unknown reason. In one of Nichika's lines, she asks if the Producer wants to go to her parent-teacher conference in her place.
- Some fans have speculated that her mother is Nami Yakumo, but this is entirely conjecture (and doesn't quite add up, because Nami is said to have ceased activities around ten years ago, and Hazuki is implied to be older than Chiyuki).
