Biographies

Self-Introduction

"Hey... I wanna become prettier. When a woman is pretty, everyone's eyes are on her, don't you think? If I become an idol, everyone will watch me, right?"

Character Description

A relatively young pianist, Kumiko originally sought to be a model but failed her audition almost immediately. She was told that there were a lot of beautiful girls like her, which upset her as she considers herself unique. After seeing an audition in the idol department, she decided to become an idol, confident that she could stand out as one. Kumiko is among several idols to earnestly have a crush towards the Producer. She becomes flustered when she thinks about him or the topic of love. Aside from playing piano, she is good at darts, but usually hides her ability due to her unflattering stance. On one occasion, she forced an elegant stance in front of the Producer, causing her concentration to suffer. This is also apparent when she had difficulties coming up with a cool pose during a photo shoot session with Noa and Mai Fukuyama, in addition to Sae, and Ryo Matsunaga. In her second Normal card set, she told the Producer about her desire to present the best of herself to everyone, especially her beloved ones, as her mother's marriage ceremony picture, which she has always seen since her childhood, left an impression in her. Kumiko is also very aware of her own physical beauty, taking care of it as much as possible. This also extends to her unit aim in Sunset Nostalgia, when she expressed that the unit should "aim for the beauty line", in response to Miu and Mio's childish play while hanging out together, and even has caused a concern when she considered disguising, to which fellow Kanagawa idol Hina Araki suggested that she wear a tracksuit similar to hers, as she considers disguising rather tricky with Kumiko's eye-catching beauty.

Kumiko is friends with Mio and Miu, under the unit Sunset Nostalgia, as well as Ayuna and Chinami, under the unit Beauty Allure.

In the tie-in 'Cinderella Girls Theater' strips, her feel towards the Producer has been the point of certain moments, such as when she had a photo shoot session at a beach (in which a cameraman asked her to think about the person she loves the most to take her photo while she is blushing) and when she taught several children (in which a child asked about whether the Producer thinks Kumiko is beautiful, prompting her to wait for his answer with a bright face). she participated in a Dream Match event with Hajime, Kiyora, and Aoi, where she attempted to fish but found she couldn’t handle worms. She thinks Aoi looks mature in traditional garb and likes the younger girl’s cooking. Kumiko teases Chizuru Matsuo into writing embarrassing notes for her calligraphy performance and is impressed by Yuu’s chocolate statue of Akky. Kumiko is a surprisingly good ketchup artist (along with Chinami and Tomoka Wakabayashi) in contrast to Kyoko. During an Idol Variety event, she was teamed with the comical duo Erika and Sora Nonomura as well as the little artist Yume to make a human-powered airplane. At first, Kumiko worried about the team since Erika and Sora do not seem to be knowledgable in maths and science (in comparison to Akiha), but was soon relieved by Yume's suggestion to design the airplane like a bird, so that they would be able to "talk to the birds". On the first Dearly Stars collaboration event in Cinderella Girls, Kumiko was involved in Ai Hidaka's loud cheering antic prior to the performance. When she, Fumika and Saori went to a library, Saori was fascinated by both Kumiko's and Fumika's calm charm as an idol, even though she is one as well. During an off-time activity with Sunset Nostalgia, Kumiko taught the importance of taking care of physical beauty, offering Mio and Miu to use her body cream while Mizuki Kawashima and Shin, wanting to know more about Kumiko's secret of beauty, interrupted by doing the same hand gesture in hope to be also given the body cream. Nene has noted both Kumiko's and Megumi Ijuin's ability to grasp the atmosphere of the Battle Talk during their member meeting.
