"Ni... Ni-nice... Nice to meet you...! I am... I am Saori Okuyama, 19 years old. I... I think that I might make a fool of myself and mess up or something... But, I'll work hard so produce me!!!"

Character Description

Saori is a girl from Akita who becomes an idol looking to change her geeky image. She introduces herself to the Producer by saying she'll probably screw up and cause trouble for him. She also has a unique dialect, most notably using "wadasu" (わだす), a Touhoku dialect which basically means "I", to refer to herself.

Initially sporting a braid, huge light brown glasses, unkempt eyebrows, and freckled face, she was also the first girl in the Cute category to wear glasses. However once she trains as an idol, she sports a huge change. Saori has her eyebrows refined and her hair taken down. She also removes her glasses, making her almost entirely a different person than before. Her glasses in her idol form are used as a necklace accessory, as can be seen in some of her idolized cards. She also normally wears a pink bear hairclip.

In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Saori has a reserved manner but is trying to be a more outgoing idol. Well known for her acting skills, she seems to have gained much of her experience from performing in her hometown. She is friends with Fuka Asano, as both find it difficult to gain courage from new hairstyles or outfits. As a unit, they are known as Purely Twin. When she returns to visit her hometown from work, she is astounded to find that the entire community supports her as an idol and that her face is plastered all over town as a local celebrity. Saori is thoroughly embarrassed when Ayuna Hamakawa makes very physical advances to the Producer, although she didn’t know Ayuna was practicing for an upcoming role. Her imitation of an angry grandpa when she was a kid helped her land a role in a horror movie starring Koume Shirasaka, where Saori played the role of a zombie girl (along with Makino Yagami), which Mary Cochran and Kyoko Igarashi praised her for her convincing performance. Saori, along with Ayuna, Hasumi Nagatomi, and Shiori Sena, was impressed by Kurumi Ohnuma’s "ability" to accidentally get wrapped by a jump rope.

Trivia & Fan Culture


  • Saori is rather choosy when it comes to rice, since she comes from an agricultural area.
  • She has been collecting bear goods since childhood, and she says her collection has grown rapidly since she came to the city, according to one of her puchi TOP Lv21~30 quotes.
  • In Starlight Stage, her image stat specialty is Vocal.
  • Her design is based on Ritsuko Akizuki, with their fixation on glasses and similar age of 19. Their birthdays are also only 11 days apart (Ritsuko's being June 23rd).

Fan Culture

  • Some of her fanart depicts in her initial appearance (with thick eyebrows), as some fans consider that a notable charm other than her eyeglass and bear accesories.
  • She is often nicknamed "Oguyama-san" or "Ogu" by fans alike, due to her accent. Fans have also come up with other puns involving her full name.
  • Outside of her Etoile Revue and Purely Twin units, fans sometimes group her with Setsuna Imura and Yukino Aihara (and to some extent Hinako Kita and Airi Totoki), as they all hail from Akita. This group is called Cinderella Girls Akita Group, or Deremasu Akitagumi (デレマス秋田組 ) in Japanese.
  • She has also been compared to Yu Miaoyi/Gubijin from Fate/Grand Order, due to design similarities.
  • On Twitter, her appreciation day is celebrated on November 11th, dubbed Good Ogu Day or Ii Ogu no Hi (#いいおぐの日), itself a parody of other appreciation days at the same month, such as Good Stomach Day Ii Onaka no Hi (#いいおなかの日). Miu Yaguchi is another idol who shares the same appreciation day.
