Self-Introduction

THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction

Wh-what?! Wh-why would I wanna to become an idol...?! That's something impossible! I-it's not like I want to... become cuter... or anything like that. I-I'm not interested at all, I'm serious!

Character Description

According to her first Starlight Stage Memorial commu, Producer first met Nao by bumping into her at a busy street corner. Thinking that Producer was her friend, she playfully yells at him about being late and says they're going to miss the movie. After noticing that the person she was talking to was in fact the Producer, Nao gets flustered while calling him a "tissue man" and that she doesn't need any of his tissues. When telling Nao that he's not a "tissue man," she thinks that he wants to take her to a bar, but tells her she's underage and not that kind of "bad girl." After telling Producer that he's pestering her, she says her goodbyes and attempts to go meet her friend. However, the Producer tries to scout her before she can leave. Nao starts to get flustered, not believing she got picked to be an idol that "wears cute and shiny costumes and does LIVEs". After saying she sees through Producer's "shady tactics," Nao says that even if she actually did get scouted, there's no way she would be able to be an idol. Producer says that she "has that something" all idols have; Nao calls him a smooth talker and laughs nervously. After saying to her that she can look cute also, Nao says that she isn't really that type of person. She increasingly gets more and more flustered, telling the Producer that she isn't interested in looking cute (really she's not!). As her friend isn't coming anymore, Nao bashfully says that she's not going to be an idol because she's interested, but just to help Producer out. Producer says he's happy for her to work together to make her an idol, but Nao yells at him and tells her she's not interested but just doing it for him. As she yells at Producer to listen to people when talked to, she starts her idol journey.

When beginning her idol career, Nao finds it hard to express her true feelings. Labeled as a tsundere, she hides her shyness behind insults and biting words as well as getting easily flustered and defensive. Things like wearing cute clothes and being an idol are things that she's secretly interested in, but revealing that is a very difficult task for her. When wearing her very first idol costume in her default card for example, she yells at the Producer saying that it doesn't suit her at all. However once the Producer praises her, she hides her grinning and poses for the Producer and asks him not to laugh at her. Unlike when she wears girly costumes, Nao appears very confident and prideful when she dons on a cool-type costume. She usually wears boyish clothes like T-shirts, pants, and sneakers, so she's more accustomed to unisex or masculine costumes. Much to Nao's (apparent) dismay, the Producer seems to get work for her that involves cute outfits or concepts. Though she yells at him to get her a job that suits her, she's secretly happy that the Producer is allowing her to challenge new areas of interest. As she gets more experience being an idol, she grows to become more comfortable with things like dresses or skirts. However, Nao's noticed the Producer has gave her harder and harder obstacles to overcome, such as maid dresses, bridal gowns, and magical girl costumes. Outside of being an idol, Nao also gets flustered when doing embarrassing things, like waiting for Producer at a train stop with an umbrella or hand-delivering a gift from Triad Primus to him. Her face gets red and hot, often stuttering over her words and getting tongue-tied. Though she still complains and yells at Producer from time to time, Nao perseveres to keep pushing herself forward in her idol career and towards her goals.

In her private life, Nao is an anime otaku that keeps up-to-date on the current season's shows. She is good friends with Hina Araki, often borrowing each other's manga and anime collections. Many different cards and commu have shown that she's a big fan of children's anime akin to Pretty Cure. They've been known to discuss anime until the early hours of the morning. She's been known to keep it a secret from others, as she finds it embarrassing, but she slowly gets more public with her interests with friends like Hina and Triad Primus supporting her hobbies. Even one of her most popular units, known as Nijiiro Dreamer with Hina and Nana, is centered around being an anime otaku and unabashedly being proud of your interests. The three of them have made their own doujinshi and promoted it for an event, Nao in charge of the costume design. Around other idols, she's very friendly and can strike up a conversation with anyone. Nao is often a good friend and mentor for other idols, such as acting as a leader figure in NEX-US. Though she's well-regarded around the agency, her tsundere nature can cause her to be the constant subject of teasing from others. Though Karen is the main perpetrator of this light harassment, idols like Mika, Frederica, and Chitose will push her to do cutesy things like wearing high heels or doing fanservice much to her chagrin.

Perhaps her closest friends at the production are the members of Triad Primus, Karen Hojo and Rin Shibuya. Knowing of them since middle school, Nao became close friends with them after reconnecting at the production. Though she is the oldest, she ends up being playfully teased by the two constantly about topics like love, Producer, and acting cute. Though teased, the three share a close bond, and she constantly worries about Karen's well being due to her frail body and past with illness.

Trivia

  • Nao is voiced as of February 28, 2014 through [Night Party Maid] SR card in the mobage, prior to her CINDERELLA MASTER release.
  • She considers her thick eyebrows as her charm point.
  • Nao is one of the few characters to have a major change to her base card. In her original Normal card, she wore a shirt saying "Nil'vana", with an edited version of American band Nirvana's smiley face logo. However, this was later changed to her current design, most likely due to copyright.

  • She allegedly has a collection of T-shirts that she only wears in her room.
    • These T-shirts are implied to be various anime merchandise.
  • In the Starlight Stage Orgel no Kobako event communication, Nao reveals that her more boyish wardrobe is in part due to her family members buying her boyish clothes instead of cute ones, that is why she is not very confident in wearing cuter clothes. [1]
  • She has a strong theme of rain and rainbows, them being the central focus of many of her cards.

Fan Culture

  • She is sometimes depicted in fan works with Yukihiro Kamiya, due to having the same family name. There is some speculation that they might be related.
