Character Description

Rei Shinohara hails from the Miyazaki Prefecture and was born on November 22nd in the city of Miyazaki. As a job, Rei teaches ballroom dancing, primarily to adults who wish to compete or just want to enjoy what dancing has to offer. This is also how she meets the Producer for the first time and where she gets told to become an idol. Her first meeting with the producer was during a trial class the Producer signed up for. The producer came to learn and scout Rei to be a part of the production. Rei believes the Producer is there to have a private dance lesson and gives him one. Here, Rei flirts heavily with the Producer, believing that the Producer was trying to flirt back with her, but the whole time Producer was just trying to scout her. Once the Producer says that they want Rei to be a part of the production, Rei agrees, since she is very attracted to the Producer and wishes to get closer to them. Rei’s form of dance is one of the more sensual forms of dance and it is part of what gives Rei so much confidence.

Rei’s personality is very different in a lot of different ways. Her biggest trait when someone would first meet Rei is that she is very confident in herself; this includes her personality and body. She knows that she has an impressive chest size and loves to show that off (as you can see in many of her cards). She also tends to have a very flirty personality, mainly with the Producer. Underneath that, Rei is known to be a coward and is afraid of many things. Her biggest fear is noted to be thunderstorms, as shown in her “Unexpected Aspect” SR. In this SR, the power goes out due to a thunderstorm, putting Rei in a completely pitch-black room. She sees what looks like a ghost and becomes frightened. It turns out this "ghost" was a teru teru bozu doll; Because of this, Rei hangs up teru teru bozu dolls, a doll ward that is supposed to protect one against storms, all around her apartment. Rei admits that she can be a coward and wants to grow as a person too, as shown in one commu where the girls write down New Year's Resolutions, and Rei's is to be fearless (or less afraid). She enacts the help of one horror-styled idol, Koume Shirasaka to help her overcome her fears. In one skit, Koume takes Rei to a haunted mansion so that Rei can try to combat her fears. Rei believes she sees a ghost and screams, which was to be expected. Through this, she and Koume have a small friendship.

Another unique characteristic of Rei is she loves riddles. In many Cinderella Girls Theater skits, she is shown to be solving a riddle or asking one. The other idols of the production, tend to look to Rei to figure out these complex questions. In one skit, the idols had her guess which New Years’ wish was theirs, and she was able to get them all right. She has very good deduction skills and is a great problem solver. “なぞなぞ seems to be a catchphrase of sorts; This phrase can be translated as a mystery, riddle, puzzle, or an enigma. It's believed that she is saying it's a mystery/riddle however by most fans. She says this phrase often and in many of her card's voice lines. On a few occasions, she has asked other idols' riddles and asked them to solve them. In a post, she gave a riddle to Miyako, the detective idol. Rei loves riddles because they give a person mystery and make them more alluring.

Koume is not the first child idol that Rei has befriended. Though it is not explicitly stated that Rei is friends with the child idols, she does often help them in many things. Shown in-game, Rei can be seen teaching idols like Momoka Sakurai how to dance and seems to be enjoying herself. She has also been seen giving candy out to the children idols during Halloween with her best friend Rena. Rei seems to have a motherly aura and loves to be around kids and take care of them. She has been seen making food for other idols as well as giving out Halloween Candy with one of her closest friends, Rena Hyodo. She does often call herself the "big-sister" and takes on the role of such. She seems to see herself as the big-sis of the production and wants to help out all of her fellow idols.

Rei has been seen to be drinking friends with After20, which includes the likes of Rena Hyodo, Kaede Takagaki, Shino Hiiragi, and Sanae Katagiri. They have only been shown to be interacting on two occasions so far but they seem to be a close-knit group of friends.

In her SSR commu, Rei explains that with the help of the Producer, she can become the greatest idol ever. Her goal as an idol is to be with the Producer in the end, as she has fallen head of heels for them. She does enjoy making people happy and connecting with the other idols, but her goal has always been to get as close to the Producer as possible. She also has this idea that the Producer yearns for her, as when they show up at the end of one of her dance classes, she mentions that they waited till she was all alone to be with her. She thinks of it almost like a date when the Producer shows up at her studio. Despite wanting the Producer to become her lover, she is an outstanding idol and performs well when she must. She wants to take over the idol world, with the Producer at her side.
