THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile
I’m aiming to be a cool, rockin’ idol!
Riina yearns to be the very definition of “rock”. However, she lacks the music knowledge and experience needed, so she often comes across as a poser. Despite this, Riina’s commitment to becoming her ideal rockin’ idol self is strong.
Riina is Cool idol who advertises herself as a rock idol. Always wearing headphones and with a deep love for the culture, she aims to become the very definition of a rock star. However, Riina lacks musical knowledge and experience with the genre, so she often comes across as a bit of a poser. Despite this, Riina’s commitment to becoming her ideal rockin’ idol self is strong.She admires Natsuki Kimura, and wants to become someone like her.
Riina doesn’t like portraying a more feminine image at first. She says she'd prefer a purely rock star aesthetic, but she can't help herself and gravitates towards more cutesy looks. In more recent cards, she's started to come closer to the rock star image she loves; even learning to play guitar under Natsuki's tutelage.
Despite her reputation as a poser, Riina often takes her idol work very seriously. When challenged with singing a ballad instead of a typical rock song in the "Idol Challenge for Two: Aim For A Cool Music Video" event, Riina begged Producer to let her keep re-recording until she had achieved the best vocals she could. In the same event, Riina frequently mentions that she aims to "surpass herself". During the Love∞Destiny event in Starlight Stage, Mayu Sakuma described Riina as extremely dependable when working with people who need her help, but with a tendency to act spoiled when paired with those more diligent than her.
Riina is an idol within the Cool category. Her basic card is Normal. She has seven Rare card sets and eleven S Rare card sets with the titles "Rocking Girl", "New Year's Rocker", "Eight Beat Rocker", "CD Debut", "Cinderella Dream", "For Peace", "Party Rock Anthem", "Blue Sunshine Summer", "Asterisk", "All-Night Fever", and "Violet Decision". She has two SSRs exclusive to Starlight Stage, titled "Heat & Beat" and "Opened-eyed Dream".
Riina Tada appears as a rival in the STAR OF FESTA mode for Honey Sound, Groovy Tune, and Funky Note. She is a B rank rival who can give her Name Card to the player while in the STANDARD or HARD difficulty. Obtaining her Name Card adds 30 points to the player's score after their performance.
