Self-Introduction

"Me, an idol? You~, what a troublesome joke. Onee-san is busy you know? But... if you say so, let's give it a try. If you're trying to do something strange... I'll arrest you♪ Um, when I say arrest, I mean tying you up♪"

Character Description

Sanae is a former police officer who quit the force to become an idol, largely because the Producer convinced her. She is very flirtatious with the Producer and uses a lot of police terminology when talking, with her cards often referencing that she wants to put the Producer in handcuffs, lock him up, and do an interrogation as a teasing double entendre. She wishes to be seen by other idols as an older sister and be called Onee-san, despite the fact that she is shorter than idols who are half her age. She also tends to get upset if other mention she is single, and is very easily susceptible to drinking to drown her sorrows. She's shown to be self-conscious about her age sometimes, especially when working with other idols way younger than her, however she also thinks it's never too late to achieve your dreams. Despite her cheerful and easygoing nature, she proves to be reliable and is respected by the rest of the production.

In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Sanae is a former police officer. She sees herself as an older sister to her fellow idols and will go to great lengths to help promote this. She leads training lessons for Nagisa Aino, Erika Akanishi, Makino Yagami, and Yuriko Ohnishi. While she finds it extremely difficult, Sanae continues to do so because she wants to be considered reliable. She sometimes puts others before hers, and can sometimes wind up looking like a fool because of it. She is nervous when it comes to Yukino Aihara’s high class tea and ceramics.

In Starlight Stage, she gets scouted when she mistakenly tells the producer to move someone else's car. Even though she initially refuses, she ends up confessing she's been thinking about changing jobs for a while, since such a serious work doesn't suit her, and becoming an idol sounds fun. At her first dance lesson, Sanae is impressed by how hard idol dance is, even though she used to dance using fans at festivals. After her hard work, Sanae asks producer for a special kind of water, clearly referring to beer. When she's about to start drinking, Chihiro enters the room and takes Sanae out with her. When Sanae comes back, she has changed her mind and says she shouldn't drink alcohol during a lesson, nervously laughing.

In her third memorial commu in Starlight Stage, Sanae seems nervous about getting her photos taken for publicity, because they will be all over the country. She confesses the reason behind this is that she doesn't want to make her parents worry about her since they're already old and they were pretty happy after they knew she finally landed a stable job as a policewoman. Therefore, she asks Producer to make her succeed as an idol in order to get her photos taken, or she'll arrest him. Sanae believes that now that she's lost her previous stable job, there's no reason not to go overboard with everything she does from now on, since she can't lose anything. However, she makes Producer promise they will write an apology letter together if something goes wrong.

Sanae has a habit of getting drunk, and often drags other idols into it as well. Despite her size, she is shown to have a high tolerance for alcohol, out-drinking the producer on a number of occasions. Her favourite drink is beer. She has found drinking buddies in Kaede Takagaki, Shino Hiiragi, Rei Shinohara, and Rena Hyodo and made friends with Kiyora Yanagi. Sanae earned a movie role of an evil mahjong player, and in turn became one of Atsumi Munakata’s ogling victims. Her sense of style seems to mostly include extremely short dresses that show a lot of cleavage. She is said to be stunning in a bathing suit, although she has put on a child’s swimsuit in order to gain attention.
