SideM Idol File
Reasons for Becoming an Idol: Actually, I’m about to get held back for the third time this year, so I’m in a bit of a pinch. If I keep my grades up through club stuff, I should probably be okay.
Personal Motto: If there’s nothing fun, make it yourself!
Comments for the Future: First off, no matter how you slice it, I won’t be able to graduate without a hitch... And I don’t want to be a burden on my mom... Ah, but I definitely want to succeed as an idol, too, though.
Comments about Unit Members: Jun still won’t let me have coffee, but he really saves my ass helping me study. Natsuki’s a pretty quiet, but he’s probably not a bad guy, or anything. Hayato and Shiki should eat more if they want to get bigger!
GROWING STARS Biography
-From drummer of light music club to idol!-
"The one who eats the donuts of victory, is me!"
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"I'm Haruna Wakazato, a spunky 18 year-old. Actually, I had to achieve results in my club activities so that I wouldn't have to stay in school again. And I became an idol along the way."
Haruna is the light music drummer of the five-high school band High×Joker. He's a sweet, curious boy who loves food, especially sweets like donuts. Haruna is 18 while the rest of the members' ages range from 16-17 due to him being held back in school twice. That's why he joined the club to help study with them for exams and become an idol.
Before he joined the club and became an idol, he used to take a variety of part-time jobs such as a security guard and a construction site worker. While he's not strong academically, he's good at speaking English as he communicates with the foreigners without hesitation during events. He's also skilled with doing hair and make-up. Despite his position as the least mobile member of the group due to being seated at a drum set, his strongest stat is Dance, though he gets to be the star at the "Hip Hop Dance Battle" event.
