THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction
"Nyahhoi! It's Kirari☆ Huh, huh? Are you all tuckered out from work? Then I'll put you back to normal with some heart-pounding Kirarin power! One, two, three, Kirarin☆"
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile
Nyahhooi, it's Kirari☆ Nice to meet you all nii☆
Kirari may be tall, but she really loves cute things. On the inside, she's more "girly" than anyone else. She can make her own clothes too, showing a hidden dextrous side to her. Her dream is to shine and be loved by everyone, so she came upon the world of idols. Kirari now grows even taller.

THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"Nyahhoi! It's Kirari Moroboshi☆ Even in a unit, I'll make everyone's hearts pound with happy happy Kirarin Power☆"
Kirari is a hyperactive, tall Passion category idol. She became one of the more popular Cinderella Girls immediately for her infectious energy and humorous quirks. She delights in spreading her own brand of madness into ordinary life, or as she calls it, "Kirarin Power☆". Kirari speaks rather fast and tends to pepper her speech with nonsense words in general, but the ones she's most known for is “nyowa☆”, "Happy-Happy.", and "Puu-Puu."
Kirari is the tallest female THE iDOLM@STER character, even taller than the Takagis and some of the male idols, and continues to grow taller after training. Kirari started at 182 cm, and grew to 183 in her plus form. By the time she got to the SR+ stage, she grew to a towering 185 cm. As of her most recent cards since then, Kirari has grown to an astounding 186.2 cm. Her weight also changed from 60 kg to 61.5 kg. A communication in Starlight Stage has her claim that her height makes her uncute, which is why she started to wear her infectiously cute clothes. However, she gets over her hesitance once she starts to grow as an idol, and becomes proud of her height. She claims she can grow even bigger with the love of her fans.
She acts as an older sister to Miria Akagi and Rika Jougasaki (alongside Mika Jougasaki and Mio Honda) in the Passion Jewelries drama, and in the anime. She's also seen carrying Nina Ichihara around on her back in the PV for Onegai! Cinderella. A running theme among all of her idol outfits is to be very colorful, very accessorized and often with a donut glued to them somewhere.
She was frequently portrayed in fanworks with a special attachment to Anzu Futaba due to their tiny slothful girl/huge hyperactive girl juxtaposition. This has since become canon throughout the franchise. They even have a duet of Onegai! Cinderella in a CD that is otherwise separated by same-type trios and are frequently pictured together in the Onegai! Cinderella Anniversary PV. They also have cards that, when placed side-by-side, reveal they are two halves of a greater illustration. In the anime, they were given a special variety show corner called "Ankiranking", and in Starlight Stage they have a unit event and song as HappyHappyTwin.
