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 adores her father. It seems her father gives her anything she wants. Risa seems to have a cheetah or tiger motif, and usually wears prints of these animals in her clothes. In her S Rare+ she carries a white tiger cub, and in her second S Rare she has a plush like the cub she held in the former card. It is implied her father 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 obvious Risa loves her father dearly and like most young girls, has stated she'd like to marry him one day. Unlike the vast majority of idols in the series, she sees the Producer as the second most important man in her life: Dad 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.
