Character Description

Iori Minase comes from a rich family and is the daughter of a corporate CEO who is also acquainted with 765 Production President, Junichirou Takagi. Iori is very polite and sweet towards people she doesn't know or doesn't really care about, especially towards her fans, but to other idols and especially towards the Producer, quick to judge people, and she has a very sharp tongue and a short temper. Because of this, Iori is known as "The little-devil idol". Despite this, Iori has a very soft side of her which she does not like to show because of embarrassment, though in some cases she will break down and act obedient, which makes her a tsundere type character.

Iori's family consists of both her parents and two older brothers, no information about her mother is ever mentioned anywhere in the game except for the fact that she has one. Though Producer never met Iori's father, she says that her father is a very scary person, even calling him a demon sometimes. Both of Iori's brothers are overseas, her second youngest brother in America as an exchange student, and her older brother is somewhere in Europe doing business.

Iori has long brown hair that extends past her shoulders all the down her back, and is kept off of her forehead by a pink headband bundled with a bow. She rarely lets her bangs down and chooses to expose her forehead, except on special occasions. She wears is a pink sleeveless shirt with ribbons tied to it on both sides. Iori also wears a white skirt with pink vertical lines that each have strawberries with a white fluffy decor on the bottom of her skirt and brown cowgirl-like shoes. She almost always has her stuffed bunny toy, affectionately named Usa-chan on her arm.

Game Discography


THE iDOLM@STER Live for You!


THE iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars


In THE iDOLM@STER 2, she is produced by Ritsuko Akizuki as part of Ryuuguu Komachi and is unplayable for the Producer's idol trio. Iori treats the new 765 Producer rather rudely, considering him only a low level employee, and forces him to do menial chores such as fetching drinks for her. She is extremely confident and competitive towards the Producer's unit, but still remains somewhat friendly to the other 765 Production idols (particularly Yayoi). However, when her unit loses to 961 Production's Jupiter, her competitiveness rises and she begins to grow annoyed with the members of that unit, especially Shouta Mitarai.

However, she does have a route in the PS3 release of the game where she can be "co-produced" with Ritsuko in the unit Ryuuguu Komachi. Within this "Extra Episode", Iori struggles with her abilities as the "leader" of her unit as Ryuuguu Komachi takes part in THE IDOL ULTIMATE competition in addition to THE IDOL ACADEMY AWARDS. She believes she shouldn't have to rely on the Producer and quickly becomes frustrated that his techniques and strategies have shown better results than her suggestions. To make matters worse, Touma Amagase of Jupiter constantly taunts her and refuses to remember her name, despite being a major rival.[1]

In the end, Iori manages to show off her appeal by trusting in the Producer and overpower Jupiter by winning THE IDOL ULTIMATE. She actually managed to strike fear in Touma Amagase, who finally remembers her name after she forced him to write it down several hundreds of times.[2]

Iori has been given an update in her hairstyle, which now includes a single bang that curls around the side of her face and is now layered down her back. She also exchanged her pink headband with a black one much like it. Besides the new hairstyle, she wears a pink dress with a black petticoat with roses, pink and light pink horizontal lines. On the middle of her dress, there is a black line with vines.

Trivia and Fan Culture


Iori with her bangs down.
  • Iori and Miki Hoshii often address each other in a rude way. Miki calls Iori でこちゃん ("Deko-chan", "odeko" being Japanese for "forehead") due to her prominent forehead, and Iori calls Miki アンタ ("anta", a very rude way of addressing someone).
  • Iori is multilingual, speaking Chinese, French, German, Spanish, and fluent English in addition to Japanese.
  • Iori's bunny doll that she carries with her all the time is affectionately named "Usa-chan," who Iori named while she was a child, though at one point she tries to trick the Producer into thinking its name is actually Sebastian. In THE iDOLM@STER (anime), she states her bunny is named "Charles Donatello the 18th," however most consider Usa-chan the real name. As of THE iDOLM@STER 2, appearances of Usa-chan seem to have been significantly reduced.
  • When casual clothes are chosen as Iori's stage clothes, Usa-chan will be stuck to Iori's arm as though it were part of the costume.
  • Iori is handy with a couple of firearms. (Noted only in iDOLM@STER Drama CD series Stage 05.)
  • In the First Vision games, Iori always exposed her forehead. She never let her bangs down until the release of THE iDOLM@STER SP DLC Catalog 8 idol-drama, where she removes her headband in order to avoid being recognized by President Kuroi.
  • Iori will almost listen to anything Ritsuko Akizuki says. This is because of a memory from when they first met in 765 Productions where Ritsuko scolded, yelled, and punished Iori to the point of her crying.
  • Iori and Yayoi Takatsuki are actually best friends, although it isn't explained how they became friends, or how they first met.
  • Iori's favorite beverage is 100% pure orange juice. In fact, her very first appearance in THE iDOLM@STER 2 has her ordering the Producer to fetch her some from a vending machine.
  • Iori is the favorite idol of Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada. This was acknowledged in a Million Live! card where she is dressed as Lili from the same series, with Harada cheering in the background.
  • Mentioned and shown across many games and the anime ( Episode 7 ), Iori has a pet dog named Jean Valjean. He is a Giant Schnauzer.
  • She shares the same birthday with Ryu Kimura and Mikokoro Sano, which is also the Children's Day in Japan.
  • Her father is friends with Junichirou Takagi, which is how she ended up as an idol with 765 Production.
  • She has two older brothers. One, named Kaoru, works as the president of a consulting company, while the other studies abroad in America.
