THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls U149 Anime Idol Profile
One of the youngest idols in the Cinderella Cast, Nina is a perky, naive girl who is almost always seen in animal-themed kigurumi. Despite being hardworking and capable, Nina is still a little girl and often acts her age. She dislikes being alone and wants the producer to stay by her side and look after her.
Starlight Stage reveals that she is the child of two very busy and somewhat neglectful parents, and spends most of her time alone, or playing together with other kids from her neighborhood to the point that parents from other kids also worried about her family conditions as well, as revealed in the U149 anime. She loves kigurumi because they lead people to take an interest in and talk to her, and also spreads her love to kigurumi to other idols (even Producer sometimes) by suggest them to try to wear kigurumi as well.

- She was voiced on December 31st, 2014 through [New Year] SR card in the original Mobage game, prior to her CINDERELLA MASTER release.
- The reason why she changes from a rabbit kigurumi to a dragon one upon training is that she was first released as a new year-themed character (in the Chinese zodiac, 2011 was the Year of the Rabbit, and 2012 was the Year of the Dragon).
- Her speech pattern is very peculiar:
- Although she uses polite conjugations, she tends to mispronounce any words with "ai" vowels as "ee" such as: -kudasai as -kudasee, or -nai as -nee; and uses the very rude -yagaru instead of more respectful or neutral transaction modifiers like -itadaku, -kureru, and -yaru.
- She is often speaks about herself in third person.
- She also tends to count "1, 2, 3, 4" as "one, two, san, shi" rather than "ichi, ni, san, yon/shi".
- It's said that she has over 80 pairs of kigurumi.
- She also has 3 pairs of shoes with her name imprinted on the soles.
- She's in charge of the rabbits at her elementary school.
- She is also fond in gardening, as revealed in the U149 anime when she is watering some plants at her neighbor's garden using her elephant-shaped garden sprayer.
- She has a talent for impersonating other idols.
- The storybook that she reads in her "Lots of Friends" card is The Tortoise and The Hare, one of Aesop' Fables stories.
- Almost all of her Japanese card names are composed of hiragana letters.
- In Nina's [Sea Creature] SR, she can be seen wearing a squid kigurumi costume. Masahiro Anbe, the mangaka of Squid Girl, drew fanart of this and posted it on his Twitter account.
