"I'm really only an idol to mess around. It's nothing special. My dad keeps telling me though, with that stupid face of his. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not at all eager about this, alright Producer!"
Tomoe is a slightly rebellious girl with interests and hobbies more fitting someone born in 1950's Japan. Tomoe dresses like a Yakuza member. She has an entourage of suited bodyguards with her in her New Year's S Rare. She is a shogi player, and has a clearly old fashion style, music style, and idol costumes. Enka was Japan's most popular style of music in the 1950’s and Tomoe’s idol costumes emulate the common dress for this genre.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Tomoe is an idol who specializes in the enka genre. She has several servants wearing black suits who refer to her as “Mistress”. She is a hard worker and somewhat of a homebody. Her father was strict with her and made her do several chores while stating, “When a man is out working, it’s a woman who protects the household.” She used to be confused by this saying, as she thought women should be allowed to go out too, but realizes that the Producer fits the male role in her work. She believes herself to be tougher than and stronger than she really is.
Tomoe seems to enjoy punishment for men. In fact, one of her philosophies in life is that if a man is good for nothing, he deserves “harsh discipline and a bare butt spanking” from his superior wife. She also doesn’t like frilly clothing and is upset when she learns Atsumi Munakata is ogling her and when the Producer wants to put her in skimpy animal clothes. She meets Mizuki Kawashima on the beach and is stunned by the idol-like aura she gives off. She also sings enka at a New Year’s concert while wearing traditional garb.
