"Yo! Are ya' Producer-san? I'm Natsuki. Even though I love rock, I love idols quite a bit as well. Maybe becoming a rock idol with a cute touch would be awesome, right? That's my aim!"
Intense and passionate about rock music, Natsuki is a good friend of Riina Tada, who admires her as the ideal rockstar she wants to become. She considers her instruments to be her babies and gets upset with Riina for attempting to smash her guitar. Natsuki is usually the straight man and target of Riina's bizarre interpretations of "Rock". To help her out, she taught Riina and the Producer how to play guitar. Natsuki nicknames Riina, Darii, who in turns calls her Natsukichi.
In Starlight Stage's Jet to the Future event, Natsuki confessed that she admires Riina to a similar degree, for her ability to keep pushing forward even with no prior knowledge or skill — a trait Natsuki considers herself to have lost. Natsuki found Riina's determination so dazzling that she hid the weaker parts of herself from Riina, for fear of betraying her expectations, and causing Riina to lose the drive that her admiration of Natsuki inspired. During this conversation, Natsuki revealed that during middle school she played guitar as a street performer. However, when the partner Natsuki performed with quit, she almost gave up on guitar for good.
When she doesn't have her hair styled in her mohawk, it falls low enough to cover her eyes. In several SR+ cards she adds in red streaks.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Natsuki is a fun loving girl who loves rock music. As a mentor to Riina, she can usually be found defusing the younger girl’s ridiculous ideas of “rock”. She also picks up on some of Riina’s habits, such as choosing to wear cute and girly costumes or trying to play the guitar with her teeth. Natsuki later teaches Riina and the Producer how to play guitar. She is very casual with the Producer, as she doesn’t even care about her clothing after she finished taking a shower.
Natsuki loves motorcycles and is close friends with Riina Tada, Takumi Mukai, Rina Fujimoto, Ryo Matsunaga, and Miyo Harada. While she often takes on a tomboyish attitude, she can be very girly when she wants to be and talks about cute cats in her neighborhood. She is embarrassed when Rina Fujimoto points out that she and her friends would leave her behind if they went on a trip together. She seems to have trouble with acting villainous roles when compared to heroic ones and is impressed by Frederica Miyamoto’s laidback manner.
