"Huh? Me? I was just hummin' a song, but... What ya see is what ya get, I'm just your average graffiti artist. Is this some sorta new pick-up technique? I hate pickup artists like that, y'know. Huh? You're really scouting me? As an idol producer?"
Saki is a street artist who is very passionate about graffiti. She is also revealed to be skilled at dancing and skating, as she often hangs around on the streets and interacting with other people of the same interest. Despite her tomboyish nature, Saki is actually a more introverted girl. She is good friends with Nagisa Aino and Kai Nishijima. These three formed a unit called Hot Art Jumpin' (Japanese: ホットアートジャンピン) and can often be seen interacting together in various media. Saki stated that her world "completely changed" since the day she was scouted and admits that she used to tell herself she should be happy as long as she can draw. Something she wants to do is tell the world about her story of getting into art and express herself, her feelings and her values, Saki states she is very happy if people get any sorts of feelings from her performances and work. Saki is also shown to be a rather curious person, since she wants to understand the arts and make sense of all kinds of different ways made to convey something. This was shown in her Third Commu in THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage. She has found a friend in Hasumi Nagatomi as they both relate to each other in terms of expressing their story and passions to the world through being an idol. Saki also states that to her, good things are timeless, which of course makes their relation even stronger due to Hasumi being very nostalgic. Kyoko Igarashi is another friend of Saki's, and despite their differences within their respective idol images, they share a great bond and friendship together. These two are in a duo unit called Heart Harmonize (Japanese: ハートハーモナイズ).
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Saki seems to be close friends with Syuko Shiomi and Cathy Graham. She likes the uses of speed in her live appearances and wishes she could incorporate elements of skating into them. She enjoys having a girly image and likes espresso with no sugar.

|Saki: Alright, work's been taken care of now. So, I'll be answering your questions.|
|Question: After seeing the level of those around me being so high, I grew afraid of drawing and eventually lost the ability to do so.|
|Question: I would like to draw once more... While I do have the desire, please do share any trick to make drawing enjoyable.|
|Saki: Hmm, let's see. The first one would be "Don't force yourself", I guess? #DereMail|
|Saki: If you keep on focusing on "I need to draw this well", you wouldn't be able to say that you're doing good. Like you might end up limiting yourself with the lines and colors.|
|Saki: While the drive to improve one's self could empower someone... I'm sure that drawing comfortably suits my personality more.|
|Saki: Which is why, you first have to drop the tough act... and try to draw with a more relaxed mindset.|
|Question: What's your favorite color?|
|Saki: If I must choose... "The first color on the canvas", I guess? #DereMail|
|Saki: It's that first color that catches my heart after wondering what color I should put into this blank canvas.|
|Saki: Guess that came off me trying too hard to be cool.|
|Question: I really like you for always being creative, Saki-chan. But I guess there are times that you have this sort of slump or writer's block.|
|Question: When that happens, what do you do for a change of pace?|
|Saki: In my case, I have lots of fun before I even get to worry. #DereMail|
|Saki: But, if that would help one relax whether it is by having fun or taking a nap, then that's all good, I think.|
|Saki: The most important takeaway would be if you don't have any ideas then you wouldn't be able to face the canvas.|
|Saki: After all, if you create a situation where you have this pressure to draw, then you probably won't be able to enjoy it, right?|
|Saki: Oh, guess that'll be it for now, okay? I sure like to receive some more questions. So, until then!|
