Ran is a Starlight Academy student and one of Ichigo and Aoi's classmates. She's been working in entertainment since she was little, so she considers herself a professional and acts mature. She can be a bit of a lone wolf, but she's also very candid with a good, caring personality. Like many others, she believed Ichigo and Aoi could not rise as top idols together. Ran is Ichigo's classmate who is secretly keeping a close eye on Ichigo and Aoi, and knows they won't be together forever and will one day go against each other. She had been a bit of a loner after her friend and former roommate, Mako, had to drop out of Starlight Academy probably because she might have lost confidence, but soon warms up to Ichigo and Aoi. She hides her feelings around other people since she's called the 'Beautiful Blade' who never smiles. She steps with her left foot on the runway since Mako stepped with her left foot first. Her favorite brand is Spicy Ageha. Unlike Ichigo and Aoi, Ran is a professional idol and has an aura like Mizuki. In fact, she has even been elected as Tristar's third member after Kaede Ichinose was elected as the second. Ran was elected in Episode 35 of the anime.
SpoilerIn Episode 37, Ran quits Tristar to be in Soleil, and Yurika takes her place. However, in Episode 39, both units are merged into STAR☆ANIS. Then in Episode 40, Powapowa-Puririn added and in Episode 41, Shion Kamiya stated that she won't join STAR☆ANIS, and in the same episode, STAR☆ANIS had it's public debut.
