THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls U149 Anime Idol Profile
A bold and prideful daddy's girl, Risa aims to be the cutest and most successful idol in the world. Having a great relationship with her father, she loves to spend time with him and values his opinion over anyone else's. She enjoys fashion, dancing, and has a soft spot for animals. Through her prideful nature, she has a tendency to come across as arrogant, but despite her confident exterior, she's actually insecure most times.
Since she has such a strong personality, Risa isn't afraid to speak her opinion on something. When she first meets the producer, she is very strict and constantly criticizing him, making sure he knows how serious she is about practice and work. As time passes, she comes to respect the producer more. She is good friends with Haru Yuuki, forming a unit called Beat Shooter.

|Risa: I'd like them as long as they're cool, cute and affectionate! #DereMail|

|Risa: I'll let you pass if you fall head over heels on me!|
|Question: A word for all the lolicons in the world please!|
