"...Can Nina really try on all kinds of different kigurumi costumes? In that case, Nina's fine with trying to be an idol, m'kay? But Nina doesn't want you to make her lonely at all... Got it, Producer?"
One of the youngest idols in the Cinderella Cast, Nina is a perky, naive girl who is almost always seen in kigurumi. Despite being hardworking and capable, Nina is still a young girl and often acts her age. She dislikes being alone and wants the producer to stay by her side and look after her.
Starlight Stage reveals that she is the child of two very busy and somewhat neglectful parents, and spends most of her time alone. She loves kigurumi because they lead people to take an interest in her and talk to her.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- The reason why Nina changes from a rabbit kigurumi to a dragon one upon training is because she was first released as a new year-themed character (in the Chinese zodiac, 2011 was the Year of the Rabbit, and 2012 is Year of the Dragon).
- Nina's speech pattern is very peculiar:
- Although she uses polite conjugations, she tends to mispronounce the word with "ai" vowels as "ee" such as: -kudasai as -kudasee, or -nai as -nee; and uses the very rude -yagaru instead of more respectful or neutral transaction modifiers like -itadaku, -kureru, and -yaru, which makes her similar to Ren Kizaki and Suzaku Akai.
- Nina often speaks about herself in third person, referring to herself as "Nina."
- She is also tends to count "1, 2, 3, 4" as "one, two, san, shi" rather than "ichi, ni, san, yon/shi."
- It's said that Nina has over 80 pairs of kigurumi.
- She also has 3 pairs of shoes with her name imprinted on the soles.
- She's in charge of the rabbits at her elementary school.
- Nina has a talent for doing impersonations of other idols.
- The story book that she reads in her "Tons of Friends" card is The Tortoise and The Hare, one of Aesop' Fables stories.
- In her "Fairytale Story" card, she hugs a frog plush that's similar to Pierre's frog kigurumi.
- Almost all of Nina's Japanese card names are composed of hiragana letters.
- In Nina's "Sea Creature" SR, she can be seen wearing a squid costume. Masahiro Abe, the mangaka of Squid Girl (Shinryaku! Ika Musume (侵略!イカ娘)), drew fanart of this and posted it on his Twitter account.
