|iM@S CG Character Data|
Risa Matoba (的場梨沙 Matoba Risa) is an idol available in THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls. Her basic card is Normal and it can be obtained via working in Nagasaki. She later received four Rare card sets and two S Rare card sets with the titles "Sexy Panther" and "Sweet Honey Heart".
Risa is a demanding young girl who absolutely loves her Daddy. It seems her father gives her anything she wants, and she seems to have a cheetah or tiger motif. She usually wears prints of these animals in her clothes, and in her S Rare+ she carries a white tiger cub. Her second S Rare shows she has a plush like the cub she held in the former card. It is implied her Daddy may be a poacher, as her second S Rare shows she has a rug made out of giraffe skin, and this could also be the reason she's associated with endangered species like cheetahs and tigers.
It’s an understatement to say Risa is obsessed with her father, to the point of saying she wants to marry him. Unlike the vast majority of idols in the series, she sees the Producer as the second most important man in her life: Daddy always comes first and foremost. The traits she finds charming in the Producer, are really those that he shares with her father.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Risa is introduced by Ayaka Kishibe. She states that she is becoming a top idol for her father. Her love of her father extends to most of her life, even making her want to make pancakes for him. She is extremely prideful, and doesn’t seem to like horses after one licks her face and bites her hair. She planned to use Yuu Ohta’s dog as a pompom. Mary Cochran and Rika Jougasaki see her as a sort of role model and she seems to have found a friend in Haru Yuuki.
