Main Characters[]

  • Sachiko Akiyama
  • Kenji Akiyama
  • Akane Tamaki - She is a determined person and has her eyes on the prize. She is always destined to do something great in life. However, she has to be aware, for she often tends to be too focused on her goal to see obstacles along the way. She has friends who help her if she's in a sticky situation and make sure her road to success never fails. She is the Little Red Riding Hood Idol.
  • Yukimi Ichitomi - She is a very lovable and loving person. She is simultaneously childlike (in the best way), yet also the motherly kind of friend. She is very feminine and proud of it. She tends to be very routine and organized. She's very optimistic. People can't help but like her, because she's adorable. She likes to have fun and though she has top notch manners, she has no problem being a little witty at times. She is the Snow White Idol.
  • Anna Chabashira - She is a person with an amazing imagination. It takes a lot of effort to satisfy her curiosity, and if it was up her, she would be traveling the world. But she has to be careful not to spend too much time in her head or have her nose buried in a book for too long, because she might miss the adventures right in front of her. She is the Alice in Wonderland Idol.
  • Kogane Umon - She is brave, confident, and always stands up for what she believes is right. She likes things to be perfect and also enjoys sharing any interesting news she gathers with all of her friends. While some might think of her as selfish and proud, she actually has a beautiful heart, and is always able to put a smile on someone's face, or settle arguments and conflicts. She is the Goldilocks Idol.
  • Haru Kanroji - He is very laid-back and cautious, as well as a quick thinker. He is extremely caring and responsible, making him someone that his friends can depend on. He always stays positive and tries to find solutions. His optimism and his never-give-up attitude are what make him amazing. He is the Hansel Idol.
  • Gumi Kanroji - She is innocent, yet really strong. When faced with a difficult situation, she never complains and always moves forward. She is always calm and collected even in pressured situations. She's extremely smart and never lets people trick her. She is the Gretel Idol.

  • Maria Chigusa - She is a spirited, clever, kind, and adventurous young woman, though a bit naive. However, she is not afraid to stand up for herself or others when the situation calls for bravery.

Later, she is shown to have matured and become more self-assured, proactive, independent and confident in her opinions and abilities. She is the Sleeping Beauty Idol.
  • Kimi Hanazawa - She is caring, hardworking, and practical. She has a deep sense of humanity and loves to do the right thing. She maintains an optimistic faith in other people, even if she's been hurt by them, so she is prone to giving second chances.

  • Gaku Kagamine - He is a bit eccentric and has a great sense of fashion that other people don't understand.
