Haruka Amami

File:IdolmasterHaruka1 953.jpg

 Voiced by: Eriko Nakamura (Main), Yuka Iguchi (Xenoglossia)

Age: 16 (17)

Height: 158cm

Weight: 45kg (46kg)

Birthday: April 3rd

Blood type: O

Three sizes: 83-56-80 (83-56-82)

Hobbies: Telling jokes, karaoke, (talking on the phone)

The main character; a cheerful, hard-working 16-year-old.

  • Big Bad: Okay, not really, but in the in-universe Mujin Gattai Kisaragi movie she is cast as this. She seems to have enjoyed it.
  • Character Tics -- When in thought she tends to look up and to the right or left. A part of the fandom ran away with it and created "Nonowa."
    • Ascended Meme -- "Nonowa" appears in Episode 7 of the anime, while Hibiki was tending to Yayoi's younger siblings.
  • Clark Kenting: In the anime.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl -- Unless she's focusing really hard on her movements, such as when dancing, she will fall over her own feet. She considers not tripping once in a day an accomplishment.
  • Dojikko -- Established as her most defining trait in the anime. But the middle and end, it's completely forgotten about.
  • Enforced Method Acting -- In universe; Haruka gives a heartbreaking performance in a musical she was auditioning for the main role which she got. But it was caused because she was still traumatized by the Producer's life threatening accident that she blames herself for.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter With Hair Decs: Her ribbons. She always carries them. Always.
  • Genki Girl -- Though not as much as Yayoi...
  • Green Eyes
  • Idiot Hero
  • Image Song -- "Taiyou no Jealousy", "I Want", "Otome yo, Taishi wo Idake", and "START!!"
  • Lethal Chef
  • Nice Girl
  • One-Note Cook -- Can't cook anything edible other than sweets. Averted in the anime where she manages to fix a dish after Chihaya gives her the wrong sauce.
  • Plucky Girl: Her defining trait. Her optimism is the glue that holds the group up.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy -- Even the President thinks she is. What sets her apart is her infectious optimism.
  • Standardized Leader
  • Yandere: Some fans' interpretation of Black Haruka.

Chihaya Kisaragi

File:IdolmasterChihaya1 7347.jpg

 Voiced by: Asami Imai (Main), Kaori Shimizu (Xenoglossia)

Age: 15 (16)

Height: 162 cm

Weight: 41 kg

Birthday: February 25th

Blood type: A

Three sizes: 72-55-78

Hobbies: Listening to music, (Training)

A talented and serious 15-year-old who became an idol in order to improve her singing. She isn't really thrilled by the flashier aspects of her career, and is rather fond of classical music.

  • A-Cup Angst -- Flanderized amongst fanworks. It doesn't help that come iM@S2 she's the only idol whose bustline hasn't grown an inch. The anime even lampshades on this comes the Beach Episode.
  • Adaptation Dye Job -- Chihaya's hair started off black with a slight blue tinge. It graduated to full on blue from the 360 port and onward.
  • Brown Eyes
  • The Comically Serious
  • Cry Cute -- The end of Episode 20, after finishing her song at the end of 765's autumn concert, even as she sees a younger specter of herself and Yuu apparently watching her sing.
  • Dark and Troubled Past -- Her parents started fighting all the time ever since her little brother Yuu died when he got ran over in a parking lot.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs -- Chihaya's character is built around symbols of the bluebird of happiness (two of her image songs, Aoi Tori and Nemuri Hime, contain direct references), which ties into her desire to handle her life herself and find meaning her own way. The anime abandons this part of her character arc completely.
  • Famed in Story -- By the time of the 2nd Vision games.
  • First-Name Basis -- In the games, upon the first meeting, she demands Producer to call her "Chihaya". In fact, she doesn't like being called by her family name.
  • Hey, It's That Voice! -- Tsubaki Yayoi, now with smaller chest.
  • Hopeless with Tech - Wich is kind of weird since she's the one assigned to do the Audio Tech's job during their first stage performance on episode 3 of the anime.
  • Ill Girl -- In iM@S2, she has a fever twice throughout the story. It is a sign of her chronic throat inflammation.
  • Image Song -- "Aoi Tori", "Me ga Au Toki", "arcadia", and "Nemurihime".
  • Not So Stoic -- She has been known to crack up at the lamest jokes.
  • Serious Business -- Her attitude toward singing. She's not fond of any "extracurricular" activity that entails her career, and spends her free time listening to classical music.
  • Stepford Smiler -- Pretends so hard to be cheerful for the Producer.
  • Sugar and Ice Girl
  • Unwinnable -- In the original Arcade game, she is notoriously prone to this. She gains only slight improvements to her tension in events, but large losses if you say the wrong thing, or mess up on a lesson minigame. Because you're working on a time limit, her tension going too low results in an inescapable death spiral. Thankfully, the console version can do a Save Scumming to prevent it.
    • Did the Research -- This is entirely realistic for a character with depression and social anxiety.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

In iM@S2, she is a member of Ryuuguu Komachi.

  • Actor Allusion -- In the anime, though not to her seiyuu's previous roles but her previous job as a gravure idol. Azusa was asked to do an audition of gravure idol and was asked to pose. Cue Male Gaze. On boobs.
  • Adaptation Dye Job -- Like Chihaya, her hair started off black. It changed to blue in the 360 port, then a dark purple in the SP games. As of iM@S2 it has gone back to blue.
  • Catch Phrase -- Due to her overall ditzy innocence, it may as well be "Ara ara..." (or sometimes just one "Ara") (or "Oh my...")
  • Cool Big Sis
  • Christmas Cake -- She isn't one yet, but it's pretty clear the chance of becoming one fuels her search for a significant other.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change -- In iM@S2, and a few episodes into the 2011 anime, she has cut her hair to a short bob.
  • The Ditz
  • Hello, Nurse! -- Mostly in the anime, there's nearly NO men who'd pass up on asking her out for a date (even if she's clueless and probably refusing). Which leads to...
    • So Beautiful It's a Curse -- The entire cityscape (and even the zoo animals) end up entranced by her beauty when she runs through the streets in a wedding dress. Eventually it starts a stampede.
  • Hey, It's That Voice! -- It's Litchi "Boobie Lady" Faye-Ling (yes, Azusa may as well be Idolmaster's Boobie Lady). Also, she's Omotchama in the 2008 remake of Yatterman.
  • Idiot Hair -- Which becomes weaponized in her 'counterpart' in Mujin Gattai Kisaragi, the AzuScythe.
  • Image Song -- "9:02 pm", "Tonari ni...", "Mythmaker", "Lovely"
  • The Ingenue
  • No Sense of Direction

Hobbies Im@s: Traveling overseas, Shopping

Hobbies Im@s 2: Traveling, Eating Out

The rich, spoiled 14-year-old daughter of a corporation CEO acquainted with 765's president.

She became an idol to prove to her father that she could become successful on her own terms.

In iM@S2, she is a member of Ryuuguu Komachi.

Hobbies Im@s 2: Ecology (Only Ami), Playing Games (Only Mami), Text Messaging (both)

A pair of hyperactive 12-year-old twins who became idols (and the youngest of the bunch) because it sounded fun. They take turns performing under Ami's name.

In iM@S2, Ami is a member of Ryuuguu Komachi while Mami is produced separately.

  • Bratty Half Pints
  • Buffy-Speak -- "If we become a super-cool-awesome idol, then everyday will be relaxing right?"
  • Dirty Kids-- They have shades of this.
  • Divergent Character Evolution -- If one pays attention in the arcade and first Xbox360 games, Mami turns out to be a little more mature than Ami. In the SP games, Takane figured out that they were two different people when she made eye-contact with Mami and saw that she was more mature. Come iM@S2, the twins get separate careers, Mami changes her hairstyle and Ami leaves, so it's likely that this will continue.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter With Hair Decs
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In iM@S2, Mami's hair is longer than Ami's, but she keeps it in a side ponytail.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry -- Their cute&girly outfit in iM@S2. They have two different pairs of boots between them, having traded the left ones.
  • The Heroes -- How they are cast in Mujin Gattai Kisaragi.
  • Hey, It's That Voice! -- They share the same seiyuu with another famous pair of twins, Rin and Len Kagamine.
  • Huge Schoolgirls-- Between the first game and the second, the twins shot up from the smallest idols to towering over girls several years their senior.
  • Image Song -- "Positive!", "Start Star", "Reimei Starline", "Jemmy" (Mami only), and "YOUou MYshin" (Ami only)
  • In the Name of the Moon -- Word for word in Episode 9, complete with an over-the-top pose.

 "With our little grey cells and seven-colored faces, the sexy girl detectives Ami and Mami, in the name of our Grandmother and Grandfather, and in the name of the moon, will capture the culprit."

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother -- Mai was forced into retirement when she got pregnant at age 15 (and still at the peak of her career) with Ai. Fourteen years later, when now 29-year-old Mai decides to rejoin the business, she's understandably still very hot.

  • Expy -- Of Haruka.
  • Genki Girl
  • Image Song -- "ALIVE" and "Hanamaru"
  • Inelegant Blubbering -- Part of her friendship with Yukiho stems from both being prone to cry a lot. The difference is where Yukiho mostly whimpers, Ai sounds the foghorn.
  • No Indoor Voice
  • Stacy's Mom -- Ai is the Stacy in this case.
  • Stage Mom -- A subtle case, but the tales of Ai's mother made her desperate for a moment in the spotlight.
  • Stuck in Their Shadow -- In-Universe, Ai fears this when her manager says she could become a big success just by namedropping her famous mother, saying she wants to become an idol based on her own ability. A fear which turns out to be entirely justified.

 Voiced by: Sayuri Yahagi (NeueGreen Drama CD)

Ryo's fellow idol and rival in his storyline. Though she maintains an image of being cute and innocent, she uses incredibly dirty tactics to claw her way to the top, such as giving out candies that clog the vocal cords of her rivals, or sabotaging the stage so the other contestants screw up.

Project Jupiter

File:IdolmasterJupiter 9943.jpg

961 Production's idol unit in iM@S2. Basically an idol group of bishies.

    • And then "Koi wo Hajimeyou" happened...
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Even Evil Has Standards -- Or at least "Hypercompetitive Idols with a Penchant for Serious Business": once they learn how low Kuroi would stoop to ruin the innocent idols of 765 Pro, they decide to call it quits.
  • Graceful Loser -- In the game, even after losing to the girls in the Idol Awards, the boys bear no ill will against them and congratulates them. Kuroi on the other hand...
  • Jerkass -- In the anime, as Haruka first witnessed. Or at least that's how they appear to be no thanks to Kuroi manipulating them into thinking that 765's idols are "corrupt".
    • Recycled Script -- Their anime plotline has a lot of elements borrowed from the Project Fairy storyline in the SP games, and Kuroi fueling rivalry between idol groups with over-the-top stories of his own victimhood is one of those.
  • Idol Singers
  • The Rival
  • Unwitting Pawn -- To Kuroi, who has been manipulating them into thinking that the idols of 765 are "corrupt" and that they were to do everything to stop them. And in Episode 21, once they wisen up to what's actually happening, they are understandbly pissed off and walk out on Kuroi.

  • Put on a Bus -- In iM@S2 his cousin Junijirou becomes president, while Junichiro becomes chairman as to avoid traveling all over the country.
