Character Profile from The Idolm@ster: Shiny Colors 2nd Guide Book

親しみやすく、ちょっと大ざっばな性報格の高校3年生。おおらかな大家族で生産まれ育ったこともあり、誰に対しても壁紙をつくらない天性のコミュニケーション能力をもつ。困っている人を見るとついつい助けてしまう性格の持ち主で、そのためか年下に対するめんどう見もよい。いかにもギャルといった感じの派手な外見だが、特にこだわりがあるわけではなく、仲がいい友達とノリで日焼けしたり髪を染めた結果こうなっている。友達と楽しく過ごすことが好きで、遊びに誘うことも誘われることも多い。そのノリの延長で「ゲーノー人」にも興味津々。裏表がまったくない性格で、端的に言えばすごくいい子である。 弱点はあがり性で、人前で何かをすることが苦手。アイドルになってから努力したものの、ステージでの緊張をなかなか克服できなかった。だがプロデューサーの発案でステージではクールなキャラクターを演じるようにしたことが転機となり、トークで詰まったり少し考えたりするときの間も、ミステリアスであると評判になっている。ストレイライトのメンバーとの関係性では、あさひを妹のようにかわいがっており、その才能については素直にすごいと思っている。冬優子に対しては、取り繕った顔でも素の顔でも、特に気に留めることなく接している。

A third-year high school student who is friendly and has a slightly rough personality. Having been born and raised in a large family, she has a natural communication ability and did not border herself to anyone. She has the personality to help anyone in need. She didn't necessarily aim to have a flashy gyaru appearance, but on a whim she went suntanning and dyed her hair with a close friend. She likes to have fun with her friends and often invite them to play or is invited to play. Because of this, she became engrossed in the workings of the entertainment industry. Mei has the opposite of a two-faced personality. Simply put, she's a really good girl.
Her weak point is that she is not very good at doing anything in public. Although she made an effort to becoming an idol, she still could not easily overcome her tension on the stage. However, when the producer suggests she adopt a cool character persona on the stage, it became her turning point and that persona has been well-received as a mystery. As for the relationship with Straylight members, she loves Asahi like her sister and admits that Asahi has talent to be an idol. She can deal well with Fuyuko no matter what mood Fuyuko is in.

Character Description and Personality

An upbeat girl with an optimistic and broad attitude. While she has a hard time understanding more complex things, she's still easy to talk to. She is in her 3rd year of High School.

Initially, despite being very energetic and friendly towards everyone she meets, when she gets on stage in front of an audience her voice becomes small and she struggles to get words out due to a past event. In order to help Mei work around her stage fright, the producer suggests that she adopt a cool and mysterious image as her on-stage persona. This way, she won't need to worry about talking a lot or forcing herself to make her voice sound bubbly. Mei agrees, and after her first performance she thanks the producer for her new strategy which allows her to continue to pursue a life as an idol. In stark contrast to how Mei acts in everyday life, laughing often and comfortably making conversation with even strangers, her on-stage personality is terse, speaking few words with a steady and husky voice.

She's in a unit called Straylight with Fuyuko Mayuzumi and Asahi Serizawa.

Trivia and Fan Culture

Fan Culture

  • Her name is often accidentally spelled as the identical-sounding and visually similar 和泉愛 instead of 和泉愛 by Japanese fans.
  • When Straylight was revealed, many fans thought Mei would be a cool-type character from her stage outfit's appearance (which was the first picture revealed) and were shocked to learn about her true personality, often saying they seemed like different characters. Ironically, this is entirely intentional in her story.
