THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
"Hey, Producer, what baseball team are you a fan of? For me, the champion has gotta be the Cats~! Huh? Being an idol? I'll do it, I'll do it☆ But I'll still work hard cheering on the Cats! Gooooo!!"
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"My name is Yuki Himekawa, 20 years old! I never thought I would be invited to work on a new project. It feels like I'm going up against the ultimate league."
20-year-old Yuki is a hardcore fan of baseball and the professional baseball team the CATS. She adores baseball and often uses many baseball terms while talking, sometimes confusing the individuals she's speaking with. The reason she became a CATS fan (the in-universe team of Tokyo) despite her being from Miyazaki, is due in fact to the CATS normally coming to train there. During those times she'd go with her older brother to see them practice. Yuki normally frequents their matches, owns a ton of CATS merchandise, and has become well-known at their stadium.
At first, Yuki only wanted to be an idol to cheer on the CATS, not quite knowing what it truly meant to be an idol. As time passed she slowly comes to know the true meaning of being one, and becomes determined to be the best version of herself she can while doing so. Being outgoing, Yuki loves to cheer on more than just her favorite team showing she is a loyal and passionate person towards her friends, fellow idols, and fans. When she can't go watch a match due to work or other responsibilities, she stays home to watch it on TV, usually staying up very late while celebrating, drinking beer and eating snacks.
Throughout middle school and high school, Yuki used to be a manager of her school's baseball team. However it has been hinted that she was quite lazy when it came to managing because in the present she wakes up late and is bad at cleaning. She can be a messy individual, her home often being quite cluttered because of this.
Old enough to drink, Yuki will often join the other adult idols like Sanae for drinks after work. She has even made a habit to go out for a drink as celebration after the CATS win a match. Like Sanae, beer is her favorite and she's often associated with it.
