THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction

"Fufu, spending Hatsumode with you is almost like a date♪ I have a lot of confidence in my luck. As thanks for finding me, I'll make sure to bring you happiness, Producer~"


"I'm Kako Takafuji. It's not Nasu, it's Kako~. Hehe♪ That's the greeting I promised to you."

Character Description

Kako is almost the personification of the traditional Japanese New Year. She loves datemaki (sweetened egg roll) and kurikinton (chestnuts and sweet potato), both traditional New Years dishes. She is extremely talented at many things that she tries and has incredible luck. Her one weakness is that she is very bad at telling jokes.

As an idol, Kako makes plenty of friends, such as the clumsy Karin Domyoji and Hotaru Shiragiku, fellow luckbringer Yoshino Yorita, to fellow 20 year-olds Miyo Harada and Yuki Himekawa.

In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Kako is introduced as being very knowledgeable about the customs of the New Year. She is seen as extremely lucky, earning Shinobu Kudo a lottery prize, and other idols seem to enjoy her company for their benefit. She commonly mentions the Japanese folktale of the eggplant, the falcon, and Mount Fuji. She appears to have trouble behaving in an idol-like manner, but her versatility and seriousness encourage her fellow idols to do their best.

Trivia and Fan Culture


  • Kako is voiced as of July 31st, 2018 through [Happiness God of the Blue Seas] SR card in the original Mobage game, as a result of placing fourth overall in the 7th Cinderella Girl General Election.
  • While she was introduced at the end of 2011, she did not get a card set released in a month other than December or January until Summer 2016.
  • Her name contains the kanji for Mount Fuji (富士), hawk (鷹), and eggplant (茄子, usually read as "nasu"). In Japan, the first dream of the New Year is considered prophetic of the dreamer's luck for the rest of the year. The most lucky symbols are said to be Mount Fuji, a hawk, or an eggplant.
  • Kako was the first idol to receive a limited SS rare card while unvoiced on January 4th, 2018. She received her 4th SS rare card on July 31st, 2020. This makes her the fastest idol to receive 4 SS rare cards, spanning only 2 years and several months.
  • The [Goddess of Fortune] SR was first released for New Year's 2012, the year of the dragon, represented by the dragon on Kako's ema. When this SR was ported to Starlight Stage for New Year's 2017, the year of the rooster, this dragon was replaced by a chicken.
  • She shares the same birthday with Karin Domyoji.
