"I'll be in your care, Producer. Well, I'll at least try to help out. I've only been back in Japan for a short time, but is there a shortage of idol talent? Or is it your pastime to request this of me?"
Manami is a fitness trainer from Nagasaki who became an idol to judge firsthand how physically demanding the career is claimed to be. She is obsessed with muscle mass and shape tone, and her physically fit lifestyle allows her to outdo even the Trainer sisters. Manami's a very professional woman, always striving for growth, and quite confident in herself, like there's nothing she can't do. She has a great amount of confidence in her work, especially her singing, as she used to be a studio vocalist at one point. She's not afraid to do surprising things like pretending to be cute or cosplaying for her work. She has 3 siblings, an older brother, younger brother, and younger sister.
Manami used to live in America for a time, so she can speak fluent English. According to rumors ingame, she even sleeptalks in English. She explains through ingame lines that she moved to America to challenge herself and to hone her singing skills. According to Manami, "When one stops feeling frustrated, they stop growing", so she moved overseas to challenge herself and her singing abilities. After being behind the scenes for many years with her studio vocalist work, she became frustrated with her stagnation, forgetting why she started to sing in the first place. Instead, she just sang the songs given to her according to the score, which didn't help inspire her or grow, despite her genuinely enjoying her work as a studio vocalist since it was a high level and professional job. Now moving to the front stage, she finds the glitz and glamour of it somewhat blinding, but genuinely believes becoming an idol helped her rediscover why she sang in the first place.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Manami is shown to be a mature woman who can easily take charge of a situation. She has been able to calm down Atsumi Munakata. Manami invited the Producer on a “warm up jog” before she went to the gym for her lesson. Her exercise lasted a few kilometers and forced the Producer to take the next day off due to muscle pain. She admits that she was an average student in high school, but takes on an incredibly cool outlook when putting on a school uniform for an event. She was partners with Umi Sugisaka in the bean throwing event.
