  • Good friends with: Matsui Rena (ChuriRena), Okada Kanna
    • She is best friends with Rena
  • Future ambition: Actress

    • Her first catchphrase was "Akarui Ongaku wo Kikoetekitara, akane machuri wa Hajimari! Akane machuri wa churi! Churi!" (When you are able to hear bright music, it’s the beginning of Akane festival! Akane festival is Churi! Churi!).
