THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile
I’ll let you watch my modeling☆
Following right behind her beloved older sister Mika, Rika enters the world of idols. She borrows her sister’s clothes so she can imitate her fashion and be a “little charisma gal”. Rika also seems to be overreaching trying to catch up with her sister, as her idol outfits expose as much as Mika’s.
Rika Jougasaki is the younger of the Jougasaki sisters. She enjoys playing around and became an idol to be like her sister, Mika Jougasaki, who she admires quite a bit. Like Mika, she is involved in the Gal subculture. However, she considereably more energetic than her sister. She loves to collect bugs and stickers, and will occasionally threaten to bite the Producer if he neglects her. She sometimes gets on Mika’s nerves, but she really doesn't mean it most of the time. Rika is so adamant about doing nothing wrong in the ad-lib challenge while on a radio skit, that she momentarily gets taken off the air, forced to give an apology afterwards, and redo the skit with a version Staff-san wrote. Her sentences are always punctuated with a white star, ☆.
Rika is an idol within the Passion category. Her basic card is Rare. Her S Rare titles are "CD Debut", "Small Charisma Gal", "Happy☆Christmas", "Secret☆Mode", "Wonderful Magic", "Winter☆Mode", "DONDOKO Rhythm", "Decoration", "G4U!", "Night☆Bunny Gal", and "Tiny☆Gal". She has an SSR exclusive to Starlight Stage, titled "Sparkledeco☆Parade".
Rika Jougasaki appears as a rival in the STAR OF FESTA mode for Honey Sound, Groovy Tune, and Funky Note. She is a S rank rival who can give her Name Card to the player while in the HARD or EXPERT difficulty. Obtaining her Name Card adds 60 points to the player's score after their performance.
Rika is available to have her photo taken with other idols from 346 Production.

Trivia and Fan Culture
- The sister's cards often reference each other: Rika's first Rare+ has her dressed as a lion, while Mika's is a lion tamer, and one of Mika's S Rare cards shows she has a cell phone strap with Rika on it while one of Rika's S Rare+ cards has a plushie of Mika. In addition, Rika uses ☆ in a lot of her lines while Mika uses a black star. In certain events they are a rival unit called "Familia Twin".
- In Starlight Stage, her image stat specialty is Dance.
- As stated by Mika, Rika's longest running temper tantrum lasted 2 days and 13 hours.
- Because Rika excitedly finds a beetle when her first card's affection is maxed, fans often portray her as loving beetles. One of her S Rares even features a stuffed beetle. It has since become canon, although as Mika finds out, her love of beetles doesn't extend to cockroaches.
