"You want to make Big Sis an idol? Hahaha, that's one cliché ambitious pick-up line~. Uh, everyday I was certainly bored. Alright, let's ride!"
Marina is a laid back from Nagano who talks as if the Producer is her little brother, such as using the suffix "-kun" and saying things like "Leave it to your big sister!". She changes from loose hair to a ponytail from time to time, and has a bit of a complex when grouped in a unit with idols younger than her. She almost always talks in a casual manner daily and is unusually energetic for a 26 year-old, claiming herself to be an eternal teenager.
Marina is the oldest Light Green Surf member. The initial unit consists of her, Natsuki (the only voiced member), Yoko Saito and Itsuki. Marina is also close friends with Shin Sato, a fellow Passion 26 year-old idol also from Nagano. This duo is known as Eternal Radiate.
The tie-in "Cinderella Girls Theater" skits depict her as carefree and energetic as ever. She is one of the witnesses of Uzuki’s “unusually normal but always does her best” attitude after she ranked third in a relay race (along with Kana Imai and Aya). Atsumi once attempted to exploit Marina’s big sister attitude in order to grope her by acting cute in front of her. Although Marina almost fell for her cuteness, she finally could bear it by thinking of the same scenario if it was the Producer wanting to do it and forbade her from further doing so, thanking the Producer inside her thought for the idea. When she wore a wedding dress for an event, she admitted that she’d like Clarice to be a witness for her and Tamami as her trainbearer. During an off-time event, Marina encouraged Shin to learn surfing, as Marina considers it indifferent from skiing and snowboarding, Shin's favorite sports, only for her to remind Marina that the Nagano Prefecture borders with no sea. Marina participated in the 2016 New Year card game competition alongside Mayu, Kiyora, and Saki Yoshioka, with the theme of guessing an idol based on her trait (which several idols share the similar trait, although Mayu's obsession towards the Producer furthermore has been played in the skit, where Marina, Kiyora and Saki all tried taking the card with Mayu's name), where the series' "Over 100 idols" tagline is also used as the battle's name. Marina tested Koharu with her own shirt by asking where the Yamagata Prefecture is located in the map of Japan, which took Koharu a few guesses to correctly answer. Chinami teased Marina's inability to bet (since she still gifted Koharu the shirt despite the first incorrect guesses), to which Ako commented that Marina is not "the type of person to lie". Marina joined Frederica's bobsleigh antic during a preparation for the 2017 Winter Sports competition. When she brought the Producer to a beach festival, she commented on how easily tired he is and brought up her "eternal teenager" moniker. After he bought two glasses of beer for them both, Marina initially commented that teenagers aren't supposed to drink, but finally decided to drink with him anyway. Marina taught Layla how to properly make onigiri during another off-time activity. In preparation for the 2018 Valentine's Day event, Marina and Misato commented on how Karin would probably prepare for the gifting to the people she'd want to make her Valentine, to which Karin embarrassedly responded that she hadn't even talked about it to them, suspecting that the two grown-ups might have been spying on her (presumably because their guess is accurately correct). During yet another off-time activity, Shin was surprised upon seeing Marina's large portion of sandwich, teasing her that she might get fat later on. Marina, however, assured Shin that she would neither get fat nor feel guilty after eating it.
