THE iDOLM@STER (Arcade) Prototype
THE iDOLM@STER 2 Introduction
A highly cryptic girl with a noble, almost regal air about her. The inner workings of her mind are a veritable riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
"I am the one who has recently come to be known as an idol. You are permitted to call me by the name Shijou Takane. I would like to express my anticipation of our cooperation. It is highly probable that you will find me wanting for a certain measure of experience in the ways of this world... and that the darkness of my own ignorance will become a bother to you as well. However...long have I intently sought after a form of success which I am capable of grasping, and even now I shall continue to do so with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, whatever tribulations my arise. Ah...could it be that my preferred manner of speech has left you nonplussed? *giggle* Verily I must say, that is a most desirable outcome. The reason being simply that it stands as a testimony to the fact that you mind has already begun to harbor interest in me. Now come; let us embark upon our skyward journey together. Our destiny lies not in our stars, but ourselves."

"A magnificent girl who exudes dignity and maturity! An example best followed by all of us..."
Takane Shijou, an elegant and majestic figure, she is known as "The Silver Queen" by her fans in the game, and also known as "The Vocal Master" of 961 Production, rivaling, and even supposedly surpassing Chihaya's ability. She comes from a very wealthy family, like Iori, and is assumed to be half European, most likely German. Takane is very polite to others, even her enemies, and hates being alone. She is also a very smart girl, almost comparable to Ritsuko.
Takane's birth parents are not in custody of her at the start of the game, and she has not had contact with them for some time. The Shijou family adopted her some time before the start of the game. She is appreciative of this, and by most accounts has a good relationship with her adoptive parents, though they placed odd restrictions on her at times (such as forbidding her from wearing traditional Japanese clothing despite frequently wearing it themselves).
Takane has a strong passion for music and stage shows. There are widespread rumors that Takane is from the moon, which are fed regularly by both the games and adaptations.
Takane has long silver hair that extends all down her back slightly down her waist, and she keeps it in place wearing a dark red headband, but unlike Iori, she lets her bangs down. She usually wears a purple shirt with carmine buttons and long sleeves, a short jacket of a darker tone and a long carmine skirt.
THE iDOLM@STER (Arcade) Prototype
In the prototype version of the arcade game, Takane was a sophisticated, quarter-European daughter of company CEO. She was proficient in German and the piano. However, she and Hibiki Ganaha were ultimately cut from the official release. In the prototype version of the arcade game, Takane's hobbies were playing the piano and practicing ballet. Takane's hair was also blond.
The release of the "Wandering Star" game marked the first official in game appearance of Takane, revived from her original arcade design as a rival idol from 961 Production. While she does nothing against it, she is well aware that President Kuroi is telling her ridiculous lies about 765 Production. On her days off or in random appearances, Takane is occasionally seen playing with the Futami twins or Yayoi Takatsuki until she gets scolded by President Kuroi. Even though Takane saw through the Futami twin's deception, she is very oblivious and naive sometimes, falling for every prank and trap set by Hibiki Ganaha and Miki Hoshii in 961 Production.
Before the release of the Overmaster single, her hobbies were officially changed from "Staying alone" and "Looking at the moon" to "Stargazing" and "Stage shows".
In THE iDOLM@STER 2nd Vision games, Takane is an idol at 765 Production. Her 2nd vision design is mostly consistent with her earlier version, with some slight differences. For example, she lets two locks of hair outside her headband.
Takane keeps most of her mysterious and unique qualities, though she is a a bit more airheaded.
Volume 4 of the Gravure series focuses on Takane with a "Meet Your Idol" sequence that contains a short dialogue between her and the producer. This volume also contains the TAKANE OrientalRedMIX; a mix of songs with Takane's vocals that can be played in the background while taking photos of the idols.
The third mini album DLC for the game, Takane friends "Mystic", focuses on Takane.

In episode 19, Takane starts to feel a unwanted presence near her when she's working, but doesn't see anything out of the ordinary. On a stroll around town after a shoot, she accidentally bumps into a man. She apologizes and continues her walk, but she then notices that the man's wallet has fallen to the ground, thus she picks it up and gives it back. The man then treats Takane to a meal for her kindness.
Later, it turns out that this man actually is the owner of another production agency, Elder Records, and that someone from 961 Production has leaked pictures of Takane and him eating together. Suddenly, Takane is on every tabloid with everyone speculating that she's about to change agency. Takane now realizes that the presence she felt must have been because of the 961 PRO paparazzo. She explains the misunderstanding to everyone at 765 PRO, but the other idols still remain a bit suspicious because of her secretive personality. They secretly start to keep an eye on her, but Takane catches onto them quickly and gets her theory confirmed by Chihaya.
A few days later, Takane is once again approached by the paparazzo who now becomes aggressive after a failed attempt at a picture. He tries to take her down, but with a little help of her Producer, Takane sends him flying to the ground and gets him arrested. The newspaper then gets a hold of Elder Records' owner who denies the agency change, and everything goes back to normal.
