Biographies

THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction

I'm Kaede Takagaki... Self-introductions aren't my strong point... At times like this, I'm not sure what to say... Well, work hard and take care of me, Producer.

THE iDOLM@STER SHINY FESTA Profile Quote

I won't lose.

THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote

"Hello, I'm Kaede Takagaki. As an idol, I want to aim higher from now."

Character Description

Kaede is a mature and mysterious idol belonging in the Cool category. She is very quiet, never saying more than necessary. Her hobbies are visiting and relaxing in onsen. She's also a huge fan of puns, crafting witty wordplay as the opportunity allows. She can instantly smell the difference between body wash and shampoo products, has heterochromia, and has a beauty mark under her left eye.

Once Kaede has had a few drinks, all of her common sense goes out the window. She gains a devious and manipulative persona when intoxicated. She will push aside any notion to quit drinking and is not above encouraging the teenage idols to drink with her. She loves to enjoy expensive or really tasty drinks, particularly wines.

While her everyday speaking voice is soft and quiet, her singing voice is powerful and resonant.

Trivia and Fan Culture

Trivia

  • Kaede is voiced as of April 18th, 2012 through THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER 004 Takagaki Kaede.
  • In Starlight Stage, her image stat specialty is either Vocal or Visual, depending on the card.
  • Kaede enjoys homophones. She thinks they are the "perfect pun material".
  • Kaede consistently ranks high in the annual Cinderella girls election and has been included in every album that was based on the results of the election. She is the only idol to hold this distinction; Rin Shibuya and Uzuki Shimamura trails her by being featured on 3 out of 4 albums.
  • So far, Kaede is the only idol in Cinderella Girls that has ever canonically been referred to as Top Idol (the common goal of all idols in the game) by another character or as her legit title, both in the anime and in the Starlight Stage game.

Fan Culture

  • Despite being among the older idols in the series, many fans initially thought that she was young, so much that some compared her age with Anzu Futaba's.
  • Due to her talent, popularity, and orchestral song, Kaede is often considered by fans to be the "last boss" of Cinderella Girls, much like Matsuri Tokugawa in her respective game.
    • This status of hers has elevated to new heights after her sheer dominance in all elections that was held in 2017 (General Election, Solo Song Election, and the Anniversary Election where she generally ranked in the top 10 for almost all categories and ranked 1st in a few).
  • Kaede was voted the most popular Cinderella Girls character in the 6th Cinderella Girls Election and received the Cinderella Girl title .
  • A running joke known as "#koikazenever" was born because her image song, Koi Kaze, had never been added to Starlight Stage. As of September 2017, however, the joke was dead as the song had been finally added to the game.
    • Ironically after she wins the 6th general election, both Koi Kaze and a remix version of the song: Koi Kaze ~Hanaba~ have been added to the game. It is also the first song with a solo member MV.
