THE iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars Statistics
Eri is a shy and reserved girl, a hikikomori once claiming internet celebrity status under the alias ELLIE. She often chats online with Cineria, but has trouble speaking with others, particularly loud people. She will often run away if she feels intimidated.
Eri has short, roughly chin length (although it is longer on the left side), navy-blue hair, swept out of her eyes with a wide silver barrette. Her hair tapers towards her neck. She has small, almond-shaped light blue eyes. She wears a plain, short-sleeved white shirt with a red ribbon around the neck under a brown blazer. Her jacket is marked with a gold emblem on the left breast pocket. And she wears a navy blue, plaid, almost knee length skirt as well. Overall, her casual outfit strongly resembles a school uniform of some sort.
THE iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars
One day the net idol ELLIE receives a message from a producer named Reiko Ozaki who encourages her to debut as a real idol. Eventually she is able to build up the courage to meet Ozaki in person. Ozaki asks ELLIE for her real name and she says that her real name is Eri Mizutani. She then makes her debut at the 876 Production. She meets Ai and Ryo there and decides to give up being a net idol and hikikomori. There she is given a chance to prove she can succeed as a real idol.
Eri's first major test as an idol comes when Ozaki challenges her to defeat 765 Production's idol Miki Hoshii, who has become known as the "Visual Queen" for her top-class looks. Although Eri has plenty of skill at coordinating digital visuals, she must adapt her skills to work in the real world if she is going to have any hope at dethroning Miki.
