"Hello. I'm Syuko. I didn't really want to become an idol, but now that my parents have kicked me out of home, I can't do anything about it. That's how things went. Don't worry, I'll do my work properly. Then, I'm counting on you!"
A footloose and relaxed girl from Kyoto, Syuko used to help watch her parents' wagashi shop until getting kicked out after an argument with them. The Producer ends up recruiting Syuko and she stays in the production's dormitories. Syuko reveals that even though her parents kicked her out because she was lazy, she isn't on bad terms with them. Her parents remain in contact with her after kicking her out, providing her with wagashi that she shares with her friends, and consulting with her on ideas for new products.
Syuko typically maintains a casual and carefree attitude. Even after being kicked out of her own home, she remains a bit of a slacker, but she will work when she is required to, and proves herself to be a reluctant yet capable leader to CAERULA. Despite her constantly unserious demeanor, she is attentive to the people around her, and shows them support and consideration in subtle ways. For example, when Miku is overworking herself during dance practice, Syuko convinces her to rest and pretends to be worse at dancing than she really is so that Miku doesn't feel like she is the only one falling behind the rest of their unit.
Due to her playful and mischievous personality, as well as her large, upturned eyes, Syuko is often associated with foxes. Several of her cards feature her in fox-themed outfits, and she is sometimes depicted with vulpine features in Cinderella Girls Theater for comedic effect.
Syuko is often shown eating various snacks or begging the producer for food. She also considers herself a decent chef, although she can't match up to her mother's cooking, and she is skilled at making matcha and wagashi.
A few of Syuko's friends include Frederica Miyamoto, Shiki Ichinose, and Sae Kobayakawa. Syuko has a similar personality to the first two, except they tend to be be even bigger troublemakers than herself. Syuko sometimes acts as a co-conspirator to their mischief, and at other times serves to rein them in when they're going too far. The elegant and well-mannered Sae, on the other hand, is almost Syuko's total opposite in terms of both appearance and personality. The two were initially wary of each other, and questioned the producer's decision to place them in the same unit, but after overcoming their initial misgivings, they built up a deep bond of mutual trust and support. They are now able to coordinate so well that Frederica and Yukari have likened them to a married couple. However, Sae thinks this is inappropriate, because she and Syuko are not married yet.
In the tie-in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Syuko is shown to move at her own pace. She admits that she can’t be as sexy as Minami Nitta, and wants to believe that she is more of a nightlife person. While she can be lazy, she is normally active during the daytime. Syuko says she cannot swim, although Sachiko Koshimizu is dubious of this.
