Million Live! biography
I don't just want to be an idol, I want to be the very best!
- Online Character Profile
She's not a smart girl, as she tends to forget to do her homework, she didn't know who Oda Nobunaga (one of the most, if not the most famous warlord in wartime Japan) was, and she always speaks before thinking. She also seems to be a terrible cook since her homemade special drink caused the Producer to make a really scary face.
Her path to become an idol started when her friend took her to a live idol concert (in the manga, it is Shizuka who she met and the concert in question was 765PRO’s theater show, which Shizuka is also part of) and she became so impressed that she instantly quit her club to become an idol. She is also a rather innocent girl who is embarrassed to be in a swimsuit, and isn't sure whether her feelings for the Producer are love or just respect.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- Due to her personality, frequent appearance, and her representative color in the game, Mirai is often considered the leading character of THE iDOLM@STER: Million Live! as Haruka Amami, Ai Hidaka,Uzuki Shimamura, Teru Tendo, and Mano Sakuragi are in their respective games. She is often put in a unit with Shizuka and Tsubasa; together they are considered the "representative" girls of the game. Fans often call the three the "stoplight trio" due to their image colors.
- While Mirai's surname means "spring days", it is created from two of the other leading characters, Haruka and Ai, in Japanese. The kanji surname of Mirai Kasuga is 春日, taken from the first name of Haruka 春香 and the last name of Ai 日高. The two kanjis, when put together, are pronounced Kasuga.
- While Mirai's given name means "future", it is created directly from the name of the game "THE iDOLM@STER: Million Live!". The name "Mirai" comes from the first syllable of "Million" or "ミリオン" (Mirion) and the first syllable of "Live", or "ライブ" (Raibu).
- In the Idolmaster Million Live! manga, she and Shizuka attend the same school.
