THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction
Fufu, me becoming an idol, thinking about it is making my heart beat faster! Ah, but can I balance studying and work? Papa might get angry... if that happens, Producer-san, I'll be counting on you, alright?
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile
I guess out of all the members here, I seem like the older sister.
Minami is a college student in her school’s lacrosse team. Although she’s smart and athletic, she found out what she really wanted to do when she came in contact with the world of idols during a time where she was unsure of herself. She’s the type who really cherishes her family.
Minami is a 19 year old college student who loves to try out as many different things as possible, and being an idol was one of the things she wanted to give a try on a whim. She is in her college's lacrosse team and is very good at the sport, just like she's really good at most of the things she tries. Despite her accomplishments, she became an idol to live up to her full potential and better herself. However, it's revealed in the anime that her perfect aura is a bit of a facade. She can overwork herself to the point of collapse, all in the name of being the best she can be, and becomes very upset when she isn't able to live up to her own expectations.
Family is very important to her, and she wants to be a big sister to the younger idols. She has a little brother, and her "Papa" is rather protective of her. She is considered to be a great older sister by both him and her fellow idols.
In the talk track on her CINDERELLA MASTER CD, Nitta admits that she's never had a boyfriend and that she's a bit unsure about wearing skimpy outfits.

|Minami: Good evening, everyone! I, Nitta Minami, will be answering the DereMails you sent in today!|
|Question: 'Were you told before that you and your little brother look alike?|
|Minami: People say that all the time! Like our eyes and looks are similar, but there's also how stubborn we are and hate to lose. #DereMail|
|Minami: Back then, that would be the cause of our occasional fights...|
|Question: I heard that Minami-chan's hobby is taking certifications but did those certifications you obtained so far has helped in your idoling?|
|Minami: Hmm... It would be hard to say which one has helped in a special way... #DereMail|
|Minami: However, during variety shows and the like, I think they have been brought up in conversations and talks.|
|Minami: And also, when studying for certification, I set my own goals and planned for them. So, I believe that that experience has helped me with my idoling.|
|Question: Minami-chan, have you wished that you had a big sister or a big brother before?|
|Minami: This question is a little embarrassing to answer... #DereMail|
|Minami: But I would be lying if I say that I didn't think of it even once.|
|Minami: After all, there are times that you'd want to be pampered and doted on by someone.|
|Minami: And with that, we come to a close for today. Please keep on sending them, okay!|
