"I'm Kurihara Nene. I've submitted my application out of admiration for idols who traverse the stage. I want to become an idol who can be aspired to and who can make people happy. Please look after me, Producer-san."
Nene is a sweet girl who became an idol for her little sister's sake. She always smiles, stating that it makes you live longer. Nene enjoys making sure people around her smile too, as well as keeping the Producer and other idols in good shape. Because of her sister's condition, Nene is extremely diligent when it comes to health, and likes herbal teas and health drinks/juices, the latter of which she frequently makes herself. She's often viewed to be like a big sister to some of the younger idols, as she dotes on them constantly and acts a bit like a busybody. She's also skilled at cooking and baking, likely because of the role she plays with her sister. Because she's always taken care of her younger sister, Nene isn't used to being looked after herself, and is seemingly easily frightened. Nene's actually quite prone to motion sickness, so she tends to walk a lot instead of riding the train or the bus.
After her sister was deemed very sick, Nene became an idol as a way to ensure she kept looking forward. She wants to become an idol who can energize her fans. Initially after becoming an idol, her sister was quite worried for her, but Nene works her hardest to become a full-fledged idol to live up to her sister's expectations. In fact, Nene was also quite weak as a child, but she believes that her sister coming into her world made her want to become stronger. Luckily, since becoming an idol, her sister's health has improved.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Nene shows off her neat and delicate image. When having to wear a swimsuit for a job, she embarrassedly admits that she only has her school swimsuit available and shows admiration of Sanae Katagiri’s body. On her trip to Bali for a live event, Nene says that she doesn’t get sunburned often, stating that her pale skin just starts to turn red. Her doting nature on younger idols is shown in multiple comics.
