THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls U149 Anime Idol Profile
M’name is Kaoru Ryuzaki! Nice t’meetcha!
An O-type Cancer who suits the image of summer and sunflowers. Always bright and full of energy. Likes to be praised, she’s a hard worker who seeks out challenge. Kaoru also likes to praise others; when she sees someone that isn’t in a good mood, she instinctively puts on a smile. The cheerleader of the 3rd Entertainment Division.
In Starlight Stage, she met the Producer in the park and cheered him up as he picked up some documents that he had dropped. She revealed that she participated in some kids' television shows and interviews with her mother. When the Producer scouted her, she was hesitant at first as she didn't know anything about idols. However, when the Producer told her that it consists of cheering people up, Kaoru happily agreed and asked the producer to become her teacher.
In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Kaoru Ryuzaki is shown to be good friends and schoolmates with Mai Fukuyama, Nina Ichihara and Chika Yokoyama, the latter two being the same age as her. She holds her time with Producer (whom she calls Sensei) very close to her and has even come back to school after she walked nearly all the way home just so the Producer could pick her up. Kaoru is the fourth member to join the “Little Marching Band Girls” unit, where she plays the drums. When she is invited to be the police commissioner for a day, she tries to arrest Ai Togo but finds that it’s better to follow the rules and have an actual reason to arrest people. She was also the inspiration for Ai’s present to the Producer.
Kaoru is very innocent and well protected from danger by older idols. She is not a very good cook but has fun trying her best. Her scary story for the group talk battle was about some boys in her class who brought a praying mantis into her classroom while it was laying eggs.
