Minori has a gentle, tolerant personality and is like an older brother to Kyoji and Pierre¹.

Resume[edit | edit source | hide]

Reasons for Becoming an Idol
In order to understand the true appeal of idols, I thought it’d be best to become one myself.
Personal Motto
Persevere. Simple, but important nonetheless.
Comments for the Future
Saying that I want to become an idol only to figure just what it is they have that entrances people... doesn’t sound very becoming, does it? I became an idol... because I love idols. How’s that? Does that sound acceptable?
Comments about Unit Members
Kyoji is quite interesting. He’s rather serious underneath it all, so he takes jokes very seriously. Pierre is an honest and good kid. I make flower crowns for him sometimes, and he gets so happy about it.
