"Produce... me? ......All right. How you draw out my power... I'd like to see it... Do not disappoint me."
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"...I'm Noa Takamine. Not so long ago, I was just one of those nameless lights... But, now I know that I have one."
Noa is a mysterious, silver-haired woman that hails from Nara. She is often described as stoic and sometimes speaks in a robotic manner. Initially viewing herself as a clean slate, Noa believed she had no future to discover for herself and any potential she had would disappear without her becoming anything. Because of this, during the first attempts at scouting her as an idol Noa wholeheartedly believed that even as an idol she would never change. Nevertheless, the Producer was able to promise Noa that he would bring out her potential if she became an idol, and having small hope in him, she finally agreed.
It is mentioned through Communications and various lines of hers that Noa values efficiency and punctuality, and takes work and business matters seriously, being an obvious perfectionist. Noa even likes to observe and analyze her fellow idols, using the feedback she gathers to improve and perfect herself. While she aims for perfection, Noa is self-conscious about her "un-natural" smile and how she expresses herself, getting told she often only shows a blank expression and can come off too robotic. Ranko and Asuka, however, admire her for her cool stance.
Noa's hobbies include stargazing and she finds comfort looking up at the sky on a starlit night. She is known to be interested in food, spices, and is fairly good at domestic skills such as cooking and cleaning. Noa even has an oddly spot-on tracking ability. Noa is in the unit Violet Violence with Tokiko Zaizen and Tsukasa Kiryu. She is also shown to be friends with Miyu Mifune.
