"Hey, nice to meetcha! Introducing everyone's favorite idol, Erika-chan☆ Because I came to help, you're gonna have the strength of a hundred people☆ I wanna ease your nerves, so LEAVE-IT-TO-ERIKA☆"

Character Description

Erika is a wanna-be comedian who likes to laugh and make others laugh. Usually energetic and peppy, Erika has a strong sense of self-confidence. She is quirky and seems to live in a comedy routine, however she is actually a very responsible idol who takes her work seriously. Erika tends to emphasize the last word she says and her dialogue even has them written in Romaji rather than Hiragana, for example O-MA-KA-SE. She also adds a star “☆” to most of her sentences.

Her notable physical features include her hair (always styled into two braids) and the flower pin that she wears in almost every unawakened card.

In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Erika is shown to have her lessons with Nagisa Aino and Sanae Katagiri. She participates in the group’s antics with Makino Yagami and Yuriko Ohnishi. She has gotten particularly close to Cathy Graham, as the two seems to work well in improvisation together. Forming a comedy unit, the duo is considered a rival unit against Suzuho Ueda and Emi Namba. This, however, is more of a healthy, non-serious rivalry (akin to that of Nagisa Aino and Kai Nishijima), since all four share the same hobby of entertaining people with comedy, in addition to Sora Nonomura and Miu Yaguchi. In fact, in the 6th Dream LIVE Festival, Erika participated with Emi as a duo named ERI☆EMI.
