Biographies

Self-Introduction

"Yo! Are ya' Producer-san? I'm Natsuki. Even though I love rock, I love idols quite a bit as well. Maybe becoming a rock idol with a cute touch would be awesome, right? That's my aim!"

Character Description

Intense and passionate about music, Natsuki is a skilled guitarist aiming to become a rock idol. Natsuki intended to audition as a singer, but ended up in the idol division by mistake. Natsuki laughed when Producer tried to scout her as an idol, thinking she didn't have the right image but decided to try it out when she realized he was serious. Natsuki once mentioned that if her old friends heard she had become an idol, they would all be shocked.

While Natsuki is open about the fact that typical idol work and girly outfits aren't her usual style, she doesn't mind them and enjoys the challenge of stepping outside her comfort zone. Natsuki often says that no matter what clothes she's wearing or job she’s doing, her rockin’ soul will always be the same.

When asked to wear a maid outfit for idol work, Natsuki initially was hesitant. She decided to challenge Producer to a game of chess, agreeing to wear the outfit only if Producer was able to beat her. However, when Natsuki realized Producer was clearly going to lose, she secretly let him win, since she decided it was silly to give up work just because it wasn't what she was used to.

Natsuki dislikes showing weakness. During the “Idol Challenge for Two: Aim for A Cool Music Video” event, Natsuki struggled with designing the outfits she would wear for the shoot. While Natsuki initially denied she was having trouble, she eventually she asked for Producer’s help. Later in the event, Natsuki was very grateful to Producer for helping her behind the scenes and letting her keep up her cool facade around the other idols.

In Starlight Stage's Jet to the Future event, Natsuki revealed that during middle school she played guitar as a street performer. However, when the partner Natsuki performed with quit, she almost gave up on guitar for good. Natsuki’s dislike of showing weakness was a key plot point in this event as well.

As they are both aiming to rock idols, Natsuki is close friends and often shown together with Riina Tada. Natsuki’s relationship with Riina could initially be described as that of a mentor, stemming from Riina admiring Natsuki and Natsuki helping Riina learn guitar, but over the years and across events in both the original game and Starlight Stage, it has developed into a close friendship built on trust and mutual respect.

Outside of playing guitar, Natsuki’s hobby is riding her motorcycle. Her friends she likes to go riding with are Takumi Mukai, Rina Fujimoto, and Miyo Harada. Starlight Stage has also shown Natsuki to be close friends with Ryo Matsunaga.

While generally kind and easy-going, Natsuki has a playful side. Natsuki sometimes gets into silly arguments with Takumi, and they have a history of teasing each other when they have had to wear cute or unusual outfits as part of idol work. She has been known to play light-hearted pranks on Riina, like saying her signature hairstyle is just bedhead or making Riina think incriminating footage had been captured of her while playing hockey.

When she doesn't have her hair styled in her mohawk, it falls low enough to cover her eyes. Natsuki has stated that she doesn't wear her hair in her mohawk style at home, or on her days off. This can be seen in her “Rocking Lover” unawakened SR. Natsuki considers putting her hair up to be a sort of “ritual” to help her get fired up. In several SR+ cards, and in both her SSR models in Starlight Stage, Natsuki adds in red streaks to her hair.
