 Every girl can shine, if she believes that she can do it.


Hotaru has brown eyes and brown hair which she put in two high ponytails. She really likes wearing skirts and dresses and she also often wears shorts. She is used to summer clothes and have many swimsuits since there is ocean on Atamistar, but she still remembers the time when she was living on Koristar and had only winter clothes. Like all AKB0048 members she has heart shaped shine in eyes and hair.


Hotaru is very positive and find good thing even very bad situations. She is friendly and make friends very quickly. She is great at sports and used to always play football or basketball with boys in her free time, before she went to AKB auditions. She loves singing. She likes to help her friends. She can be very competitive and is very strict towards herself always saying she want to be better than she is at the moment. She is often described by other members as non-observant one especially comparing to Rei or Yumeko.


Hotaru was born on Koristar, planet where there is winter all the time. She knew about AKB0048 since young age since her parents were always listening to their songs in secret, because Koristar is under entertainment ban. When Hotaru was 10 they got chance to move to Atamistar so they decided to go there.

Encountering AKB0048Edit

Hotaru's parents were always big AKB fans and often listen to their songs even though Koristar was under entertainment ban. Hotaru loved them too and when she was young girl she already decided she'll one day become their member too. She often went to forest and listened to their songs. One day when she was 7 and was again doing that, Hikami Yumeko heared her and she invited her to join her. Hotaru told Yumeko about AKB and after that they were together everyday. When Hotaru's family decided to move to Atamistar she and Yumeko promised to each other that they'll meet again when they'll both become members of AKB0048
