Naru is a 14-year-old girl who becomes the manager of Prism Stone. She is able to sense the color of music. She is a lovely-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Guitar during Prism Lives.


  • Ascended Fangirl: She becomes Dear Crown's manager, gets to be in an interview with June Amou and pairs up with Bell whom she admires.
  • Book Dumb: Naru has trouble with schoolwork and often relies on Ann, the resident Academic Athlete, to come to her rescue. In episode 22, she sucks up to Ann just to ask her to copy her summer homework, and in episode 34, she asks her to help with the class laboratory experiment.
  • Catchphrase: "Happy Naru!"
  • The Ditz: One of Naru's defining traits is that she's clumsy and a bit dumb.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: When Rinne starts living with Naru, she starts having dreams about the Prism World. Rinne often gives her clues or advice on how to solve her problems in the episode.
  • Dumb Is Good: Naru is not very competent, but she always tries to help people.

  • Genki Girl: Naru is known for being energetic and happy all the time. Her Catchphrase is even "So happy! (Happy Naru!)"
  • Good Parents: Naru grew up with loving parents who give her the utmost support. Naru's parents are also loving towards Rinne, Ann, and Bell when they spend the night over at her home.
  • Graceful Loser: Naru loses the Dreaming Session to Bell, but she's perfectly happy for Bell and also thanks her for showing her that she needs to improve. Naru also loses the Over the Rainbow Session for making so many falls, even though the rinks weren't working.
  • The Hero: She's the main character in the series, and she also manages to save the Prism Sparkle from the world.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • During the Dreaming Session, Naru falls under pressure after Bell's extremely impressive Prism Show, some of it in part due to her not realizing how high the stakes are in a professional tournament. She starts crying when she can't see the color of her music, and it takes Rinne and Koji to help her recover.
    • During the Winter White Session, Rinne refuses to see Naru and tells her goodbye. This causes Naru to think she hates her, and she becomes so distressed that the Prism Sparkle and Lovelin disappear from her heart, leaving her unable to perform Prism Lives. When Bell shows that she supports Naru, and Hiro suggests that Rinne might be testing her resolve, Naru recovers and puts on a great Prism Show with Bell. It turns out that Rinne didn't actually hate her, but said goodbye because she was going to sacrifice herself to duel against June.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Naru encourages Ito to accept that she and Koji are in love with each other, but since she's Oblivious to Love, she doesn't realize she's in love with Koji as well, and she spends the aftermath crying on Rinne's shoulder. In a way, it brings her closer to Hiro after he gets rejected by Bell, and she suggests they form a Broken Hearts Club together.
  • I'm Crying, but I Don't Know Why: After Naru sends Ito off to patch things up with Koji, she starts wondering why she's crying even though she's happy for her. It turns out that Naru had a crush on Koji, too.
  • Idiot Hair: Naru has a cowlick on her bangs.
  • Image Song: "Heart Iro Tori Dream" is Naru's song, and it was written by Koji.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: She doesn't really know what her life goal is. Pretty Rhythm's staff says that there are lots of kids like that and it's probable they relate to her.
  • Legacy Character: Naru shows up in the Pretty Series spin-offs, one of them being "Naru Shiawase" in Kiratto Pri☆Chan.
  • Legendary in the Sequel: In PriPara, Naru becomes one of the members of Saints, the legendary idol group.
  • Oblivious to Love: Naru doesn't realize she had a crush on Koji until the very last episode of the series.
  • Pint-Sized Kid: Naru is the shortest of the main seven girls. Her parents mention to Bell that Naru nearly died when she was born because she was underweight, and it was a miracle that she even lived. However, by King of Prism, Naru has gone under a growth spurt and she's now taller than Ann, who was originally One Head Taller than her.
  • Pink Heroine: She's the main character and her theme color is pink.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Naru's theme color is pink and her overall image and style is feminine by Japanese standards. She's associated with hearts, loves cute things, and is a lovely-style performer.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair, and she's the nicest member of the team.
  • Second Year Protagonist: Naru is in 8th grade (middle school year 2).

Prism Live Instrument: Drums
Voiced By: Yuu Serizawa

Ann is the Class Representative of Naru and Ito's class and the president of the Prism Show Club. She is in charge of the sweets corner at Prism Stone. She is able to sense the taste of music. She is a pop-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Drums during Prism Lives.


  • Academic Athlete: Ann is the Prism Show Club's president and is a good student (to the point where Naru begs her to copy her summer homework).
  • The Ace: Ann is very well-rounded out of the girls at Prism Stone: she's both athletic and has good grades. She's the Class Representative, the president of the Prism Show Club, and is good at cooking. On top of all that, she also works at Prism Stone as both a Prism Star and a pastry chef.

  • Class Representative: Ann is the representative of her class, which Naru states during Ann's introduction video in episode 22.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Ann is sick of senbei because she lives in a senbei shop. Every time Kazuki brings them to a tournament, she always tells him off for it.
  • Green-Eyed Epiphany: Ann starts becoming aware of her feelings for Kazuki after seeing him hug Wakana, and she fully acknowledges it by the time the Winter White Session takes place.
  • Hot-Blooded: Out of all the Prism Stone employees, Ann is the easiest to get riled up, as she takes matters very seriously.
  • Image Song: An's song was "Sweet Time Cooking Magic (Harapeko Nan Desu Watashi tte)", which she received from Kazuki (who, in turn, received it from Koji).
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Ann is extremely fascinated with aliens and the otherworldly. When she first notices her sweets are being eaten at Prism Stone, she's excited to set up a camera to record the footage. She gets distracted by an alien exhibit while searching for Rinne at Kakyoin Academy's cultural festival. She is also thrilled to watch Momogappa in theaters.
  • Nobody Calls Me "Chicken"!: Ann stubbornly refuses to back down when she's taunted, which ultimately leads her to accepting Wakana's challenge even though she knows that Wakana has more experience in competing in tournaments.
  • Oblivious to Love: Even after Bell spells it out for her, Ann doesn't get that Koji had a crush on Ito until Otoha explains it in layman terms. Also, it takes a long time for Ann to figure out she has a crush on Kazuki.
  • Overprotective Dad: Ann's father is ridiculously overbearing and wants her to remain at the family's senbei shop just because he doesn't want to let her go. At the very end of the series, he flips out when Ann casually mentions she wants to focus on dating, among other things, in the future.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Time for a delicious show!"
  • Samaritan Syndrome: Ann is unable to leave people who need help, causing Wakana to mockingly call her "Miss Defender of Justice." For a while, she also becomes in charge of the advice column on Prism Stone's website.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her Prism Stone name tag and the overhead screens during the Dreaming Session lists her name as "Ann." In a magazine spread shown in King of Prism, her name is spelled "An."
  • Supreme Chef: Ann is talented at making sweets. She can make giant-sized sweets with no trouble at all (to Chisato's delight), and she can make senbei as well due to growing up in a senbei shop.
  • Sweet Tooth: Ann loves sweets and is quite knowledgeable about them, due to going to cake buffets often. Her Prism Jumps are all themed after sweets, too.
  • Team Chef: Ann is in charge of making food at Prism Stone, where she mostly makes sweets.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Ann is the most athletic girl in Prism Stone, and she wears her hair in a donut-shaped side ponytail.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ann loves sweets so much that she frequents cake buffets and immediately takes upon Naru's offer to work as a pastry chef at Prism Stone.
  • True Blue Femininity: Ann's theme color is blue and holds many traits valued as feminine in Japan, such as having a Sweet Tooth.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Ann and Wakana didn't get along well at first due to Wakana holding onto a four-year-old grudge on her. After misunderstandings were cleared up, they become best friends (and Friendly Rivals over Kazuki's affections).

Ito Suzuno

Style: Cool

My Song: "BT37.5"
Prism Live Instrument: Keyboard
Voiced By: Mikako Komatsu

Ito is a cool, stylish girl whose father owns a small club called Lucky Star. She is in charge of the make-up corner at Prism Stone. She is able to sense the heat of music. She is a cool-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Keyboard during Prism Lives.


  • Aloof Ally: At first, Ito doesn't accept Naru and Ann's request to do the make-up at Prism Stone, and when she finally accepts, she tells them "she doesn't want to get personally involved with them."
  • Boyish Short Hair: Ito has short hair and maintains a masculine look that emphasizes her "cool" personality.
  • Brutal Honesty: Ito is very outspoken, sometimes at the cost of offending or scaring away others. Because of her tendency to be honest, she finds it annoying when Otoha apologizes and encourages her to speak her mind.
  • Catchphrase: Ito describes things unfavorably with "Lukewarm" and "Hot" for things she likes.
  • Character Development: She becomes much more nicer and stops being rude, thanks to Otoha, Koji and the others. She also makes up with her family.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ito's parents are divorced, and her father basically Stopped Caring for everything. This is because when her father tried to get his old band back together six years ago, he got into a car accident that ultimately killed his best friend, who happens to be Koji's father. Ito hopes that by buying her father's old guitar from the pawn shop, it might bring her family back together.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Ito rejects Koji's attempts at a Love Confession at first because she thinks he only feels sorry for her.
  • Face of a Thug: In the 3DS game Kirakira My Design, she intimidates the player character when they first meet, to which Ann calls her out on. You have the option to tell her you're scared of her, and if you do, she gets flustered and insists she's not scary. If you tell her you aren't, Naru points out that she's secretly happy.
  • Image Song: Ito's solo Prism Show song is "BT37.5", which she wrote herself.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: Ito is seen with no friends at school, and everyone is too scared to approach her, even their teacher. After working at Prism Stone, she eventually mellows out and genuinely becomes Naru and Ann's friend.
  • Love Cannot Overcome: Ito breaks up with Koji during the White Winter Session after she finds out her father caused the car accident that killed his father. Despite her feelings for him, she does it to protect everyone from the painful reminder. Koji, however, feels that it's better facing the memory to help move on, and it's ultimately his determination to stay with her that helps them remain a couple.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means "string." Her mother tells Ito she's the string that ties up her family.
  • Parental Abandonment: Ito's parents are divorced, and despite her living with her father, she interacts with her mother more by letter. Her father is too detached and hung up on his own issues to mind her, so she's the one who ends up caring for him.
  • Perpetual Frowner: In most official artwork, Ito is always seen frowning and pouting. She also rarely smiles.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Let's do this!" Post-Character Development, she says, "Let's connect the strings in our hearts!"
  • Red String of Fate: Fitting for her name, which means "string", Ito's third Prism Jump is called "Red String Summer of Love." Koji ends up using this Prism Jump in King of Prism.
  • Refusal of the Call: She refuses to join Prism Stone at first, but she accepts when she realizes that she can use her earnings to buy her dad's old guitar from the pawn shop.
  • Skunk Stripe: Ito has two purple streaks in her hair.
  • Solomon Divorce: Ito was originally going to move to Hokkaido with her mother and her younger brother, Yu, after her parents' divorce, but she chose to stay with her father.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ito has a more masculine look than the rest of the girls, such as opting for pants and being The Rock Star of the group. She is also immediately cast for the role of the prince during Otoha's tea party Prism Show and their duo Prism Show.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Ito is considerably rude to Naru and Ann at first, but after spending time with her, she comes to accept them as friends. Her interactions with Otoha also show how empathetic she can be, especially when she encourages her to perform in front of Bell and Wakana shortly after Bell kicks her out of her group. Ito mellows out completely by the time she starts dating Koji, as she's learned to accept her feelings.
  • Tsundere: Ito gets embarrassed when she lets Naru and Ann be on First-Name Basis with her for the first time. She also gets extremely huffy towards Koji, mostly in part because she refuses to admit she likes him.

    Rinne 

Rinne

Style: Star
Prism Jumps: Star Splash (#1), Stardust Shower (#2), Golden Star Magic (#3), Fluttering Rainbow Tail (#4), Rainbow Arc Fantasy (#5), Twinkling Future Star (#6)
My Song: "Gift"
Prism Live Instrument: Guitar
Voiced By: Ayane Sakura

Rinne is a mysterious girl who has lost both her memories and emotions. She stuns the Prism Show scene by revealing she is able to do four consecutive Prism Jumps.


  • The Ace: Rinne is able to perform four Prism Jumps in a row, something that only the current Prism Queen, June Amou, can do. This is because, like June, Rinne is also a messenger from the Prism World.
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: During the Winter White Session, Rinne refuses to see Naru and only tells her, "Goodbye", which sends her into a Heroic BSoD. The reason why Rinne did this wasn't because she hated Naru — she registered to compete with June for the sole purpose of dueling her, where the loser will be absorbed into the winner, and she was ready to lose the battle. Luckily, it ends in a tie, so neither one was absorbed.
  • Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: All Rinnes from the Prism World have wings that resemble a butterfly's wings, which seems to be their unique identifier — Naru's Rinne has Rainbow Feathers, while June has Night Dream Feathers. However, as Prism Messengers, all Rinnes are fated to lose their memories once their mission is over when they return to the Prism World. Afterwards, they are replaced by a new Rinne, who takes over their bodies and continues spreading the Prism Sparkle in a different world.
  • Character Development: She's the typical mysterious girl at first, and barely talks, but thanks to Naru, she becomes more cheerful and learns things like how important it is to keep promises and say thanks. Rinne grows to care for her and would do anything to keep her safe, even promising to be by her side if anything happens to her.
  • Comically Serious: Since she's an Emotionless Girl, some of the way she shows support and enthusiasm come across as hilarious, such as chanting, "Freedom!" along with Kazuki during Ann's Prism Show.
  • Continuity Cameo: Rinne first appeared in Pretty Rhythm: My Deco Wedding, the Nintendo 3DS port of the original Pretty Rhythm arcade game.
  • Emotionless Girl: In her official character description, Rinne is described to have missing emotions along with lost memories. This is because no two Rinnes can exist in the same world, and June had prevented her from absorbing her and taking over her body.
  • Flash Step: Rinne can appear anywhere at random times, only to disappear afterwards.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Rinne is part of Prism Stone and Happy RAIN In Name Only because Chisato won't let her compete in Prism Shows. This is because Rinne is a Prism Messenger and she is forbidden by the laws of the Prism World to compete, as it would prevent the Prism Sparkle from spreading. Rinne, however, does show up uninvited during Naru's Prism Shows, though.
  • Hive Mind: Rinne is the name describing the female-type Prism Messengers from the Prism World. Each one is sent to a world to spread the Prism Sparkle, and once her duties are over, she must return to the Prism World and allow a new Rinne to merge with her body. The new Rinne will obtain parts of her previous memories, but will ultimately lead a new life and mission.
  • Image Song: Her song is "Gift."
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: The reason why Rinne lost her memories is because June is present, and there can only be one Prism Messenger in the same place. However, Rinne loses her memories at the end anyway, because Prism Messengers must lose their memories once they return to the Prism World when their duties are over.
  • Mysterious Waif: Rinne is from the Prism World, which explains why she can perform many impossible feats so effortlessly.
  • Mystical Waif: Rinne is gifted in Prism Shows because she is from the Prism World sent to maintain the Prism Sparkle, which sustains Pair Friends, the rinks, the Prism Stones, and the Prism Jumps.
  • New Transfer Student: Halfway into the series, Rinne enrolls into Naru's school.
  • Not Quite Human: Rinne is not a human. She's an entity from the Prism World sent between worlds to maintain the Prism Sparkle.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Rinne is cold at first, but thanks to spending time with Naru, she soon starts to open up around others.
  • The Quiet One: When Rinne talks, she only says one word or two.
  • The Stoic: Rinne rarely shows emotions at first, until Naru helps draw them out from her. The reason why Rinne is emotionless is because there can't be two Rinnes in the same world, and June had prevented her from taking over her body.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves Genghis Khan.
  • When She Smiles: At first it's rare to see Rinne smile, but when she does, Naru and the others get surprised.

Bell Rose

    In General 

In General

Prism Jumps: Rosette Nebula of Revolution
My Song: "Rosette Nebula"


  • Bare Your Midriff: Their default Edel Rose performance outfits reveal their midsections.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Bell Rose isn't exactly "evil", but they were Prism Stone's antagonists during the first half of the series. Their default performance outfits are revealing and show off their midriffs.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Bell, Wakana, and Otoha did actually start being out as friends, but after Edel Rose's competitive environment gets to them, they start acting as if they were together out of convenience (with the exception of Otoha, who genuinely still considered Bell kind). After their Character Development arcs, they come to realize they truly enjoy each other's company and are loyal to each other.
  • Image Song: Their song is titled "Rosette Nebula."
  • Privileged Rival: All girls are students at Le Seliana Girls Academy, a private girls' school, and are also part of the elite Prism Star school Edel Rose.

    Bell Renjoji 

Bell Renjoji

Style: Sexy
Prism Jumps: Sexy Splash (#1), Million Rose of Passion (#2), Dream Kaleidoscope (#3), Dream Prism Phoenix (#4), Rosette Nebula of Revolution (#5), Queen's Heaven of Judgment (#6), and Valkyrie Heart (#7)
My Song: "Get Music!"
Prism Live Instrument: Violin
Voiced By: Haruka Tomatsu

Bell is the top student of Edel Rose's female division. She is able to sense the love of music. She is a sexy-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Violin during Prism Lives.


  • Anger Montage: Early on in the series, Bell gets so angry that she destroys the entire room out of frustration that she can't do a Prism Live.
  • Break the Haughty: Halfway into the series, Naru, Otoha, and Wakana convince Bell that she doesn't need to be perfect all the time and people already like her the way she is. This realization helps Bell overcome some of her personal issues and stop prioritizing being the best for the sake of other people's expectations.
  • Broken Ace: Bell is great at Prism shows, languages, studies, and is very pretty and admired. However, her Education Mama pressures her to be perfect and won't accept anything less. Bell is jealous of Naru because she's always happy, and doesn't seem to have any problems, yet she has talent for Prism Shows. She also thinks people around her won't love her if she's not at the top.
  • Character Development: Beginning in episode 24, Bell realizes through Wakana and Otoha that they love her no matter what, and that she doesn't have to be perfect all the time. That helps her let go of some of the self-resentment she holds towards herself. Naru also helps her jump towards the realization to just be herself instead of what others want her to be, causing her to become nicer.
  • Childhood Friends: Bell holds an Odd Friendship with Wakana, who she's known since they were in elementary school. Even though they seemed like they were only around each other out of convenience, Wakana happens to be her first friend, and when she was told she was moving away, she begins crying and begging her not to leave. Bell feels guilty about it because she essentially made Wakana rebel against her parents just to stay.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Bell surprisingly loves mascot characters. Her first instinct to seeing Kappippi was to jump up and hug him.
  • Death Glare: Before her Character Development, she was quick to give angry glares at Otoha and the other Edel Rose female students.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Bell is a Privileged Rival to Prism Stone and is cold to them at first, but thanks to Naru, Wakana, and Otoha, she starts becoming friendlier.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Bell is the top student of Edel Rose's female division, leading Otoha and the other Edel Rose female students admire her to the point they seem to have a crush on her.
  • Freudian Excuse: Bell is extremely rude and haughty at first because of the competitive environment in Edel Rose instilled by Jin, where fame is valued over friendship, and the near-impossible expectations brought upon her by her own mother. Because of this, Bell feels her only self-worth is her perfection and believes no one will love her if she's not the best.
  • Get Out!: Early on in the series, when Bell is extremely agitated, she asks people to leave the room before unleashing her wrath alone. Wakana knows whenever this is going to happen and even suggests to Hiro, amidst his protests, that this is the best thing they can do for her during this time.
  • Graceful Loser: Bell accepts her defeat with a smile when Happy Rain beats Bell Rose during the Try Groovin' Session.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Before Bell's Character Development, she was quick to get jealous at the thought of someone more successful than her. This is mainly in part because both her mom and Edel Rose have been forcing her to be the best, and she feels that if she's not the best, then people won't love her. Specific examples include:
    • Bell is rude to Naru at first because Naru had gotten hired at Prism Stone while she didn't, but this is one out of many examples. The underlying reason is because Naru is innately charismatic and talented in Prism Shows, while Bell had to work her ass off to get to where she was today. Furthermore, it irritates her how Naru can be so happy in spite of everything, while Bell is so angry and lonely from the pressure of having to constantly work hard. This intensifies after the Dreaming Session — despite Bell beating Naru by a landslide, Naru was able to get people talking about Prism Lives, so much that a little girl asked to see her instead of Bell.
    • The whole reason why Otoha starts working at Prism Stone for a while was because Bell kicked her out of the group for getting more attention.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Even though Bell beat Naru at the Dreaming Session, more people are talking about Prism Lives than Edel Rose's victory. It's a major gut punch to Bell when a little girl requests to see Naru instead of her at her mother's company party.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: In episode 17, right after Otoha and Wakana receive Pair Friends, you'd expect Bell to go under Character Development and receive hers, right? Wrong. After Bell overworks herself to perform at Dear Crown, she rejects Otoha's attempt to reach out to her, which causes Wakana to call her out and her Pair Friend to roll away. Fortunately, she gets better thanks to Character Development.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: The Prism Stone team decides to register for the Dreaming Session just so Ann could have a chance to duel Wakana, whereas Naru and Ito would sit out of the competition. Bell calls them out for not taking such a professional event like this seriously, especially when so many other Prism Stars have been training for months for the tournament.
  • The Leader: She's the leader of Edel Rose Team S (later renamed Bell Rose) and becomes the leader of the female section of Edel Rose.
  • Not So Different: Her Winter White Session performance with Naru is based on how different yet similar they are, as they grow closer.
  • Ojou: Bell is wealthy, lady-like, and cultured due to her upbringing.
  • The Power of Friendship: She becomes better at Prism Shows and is more confident in herself with her friends' love.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "I'll show you the power of roses!"
  • Red Is Heroic: Before her Character Development, Bell represented more of Red Is Violent instead due to her trying to upstage Naru (including getting Hiro to convince her to join the Dreaming Session just so she could humiliate her). However, after she mellows out, Bell becomes one of Naru's staunchest supporters and tries her best to help out Prism Stone. Despite not being the main character, Bell also ends up winning the title of Prism Queen from June, therefore assisting Naru in saving the Prism Sparkle.
  • Rich Bitch: Bell comes from a very wealthy family and goes to an elite all-girls school, La Seliana Girls Academy. She is also a Privileged Rival in the fact that she attends the elite Prism Star school, Edel Rose. After her Character Development, she becomes more of an Ojou.
  • The Rival: Bell sees Naru as her rival ever since she was passed up for her for Prism Stone's manager position and is aware of how much latent talent Naru has in Prism Shows. She later sees June as her rival.
  • School Idol: Besides being a Prism Star, Bell is the most popular girl at Edel Rose.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Bell is hostile to Prism Stone at first, but after episode 24, she becomes significantly nicer to them. She also becomes one of Naru's closest friends, especially during the White Winter Session.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Bell has sharp eyes that show off her serious personality.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Bell forces herself to do a Prism Live when she really can't, she loses it. She has her own Anger Montage where she rips up pillows and destroys the entire room.

    Otoha Takanashi 

Otoha Takanashi

Style: Feminine
Prism Jumps: Feminine Splash (#1), My Märchen Dream City (#2), My Märchen Tea Party (#3), Hat Trick Star (#4), Sparkling Turntable (#5)
My Song: "Vanity Colon"
Prism Live Instrument: Saxophone
Voiced By: Saori Goto

Otoha is a student of Edel Rose's female division. She is able to sense the scent of music. She is a feminine-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Saxophone during Prism Lives.


  • Adorkable: Otoha is extremely shy and timid, but she also loves gushing about fairytales and romance with several Imagine Spots to boot, which makes her endearing.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Bell calls her "Oto."
  • Ambiguously Gay: Otoha idolizes Bell and is extremely dedicated to her ever since Bell gave her a Prism Stone when she forgot hers during Edel Rose's entrance exams. She also gets a Nose Bleed when Bell practices with her for the Winter White Session and gushes over any compliment she gives her. She also has Imagine Spots of herself as the princess to Bell and Ito's princes. Moreover, Otoha is the only one of the main six who does not have a significant relationship with the three boys from Over the Rainbow, and she is thus excluded from their Audience Participation scenes in King of Prism. The only hint that suggests she might be Ambiguously Bi is when Femini tells the other Pair Friends that her favorite of the boys is Hiro.
  • Apologizes a Lot: Otoha has a tendency to apologize profusely, even regarding things that aren't her fault. Ito calls her out on this and tells her to stop apologizing so much. What cements her Character Development is her thanking Bell instead of apologizing when Bell threatens to sever their friendship for good.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Otoha believes Bell is kind ever since she lent her a Prism Stone for Edel Rose's entrance exams.
  • Beware the Nice Ones:
    • She, like Ito, doesn't hesitate to smack Momo when Bell Rose finds out Chisato's true identity while working at Prism Stone.
    • During the Prism Queen Cup's Over the Rainbow Session, she shakes everyone out of being Nervous Wrecks by screaming that they're not being "fairytale." When she performs Hat Trick Star, her voice also gets shockingly deep as she kicks a soccer ball into the net.
  • Biting the Handkerchief: In the final episode, Otoha is seen comically seething in jealousy and biting a handkerchief when she sees Bell teaching another female Edel Rose student.
  • Catchphrase: "Like a fairytale!"
  • Crazy-Prepared: Due to being Bell's assistant, who is quite high-maintenance herself, Otoha is always prepared for emergency situations. When Chisato is complaining about the heat, Otoha readily supplies her with cooling pads... not to mention, she always has a tea set with her ready!
  • Friendship Trinket: One of Otoha's treasures is a Prism Stone containing Black Ribbon Pumps, which Bell lent to her for Edel Rose's entrance exams. She still keeps it today as a token of their friendship.

  • Guest-Star Party Member: Otoha joins Prism Stone in Episode 15. She goes back to back Edel Rose in Episode 21.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's blonde and she's one of the nicest characters in the entire series.

  • Luminescent Blush: Otoha tends to blush a lot when she daydreams about romance, or when Bell compliments her.
  • Mr. Imagination: Otoha tends to have Imagine Spots about romance and fairytales.
  • The Nose Knows: Otoha is able to "smell" the flavor of music, often comparing it to tea.
  • School Idol: Otoha starts getting popular following her Prism Show at the Dreaming Session. Note that she used to be ranked at #49, barely making the cut-off for Edel Rose, in one episode.
  • Shipper on Deck: Otoha ships Koji and Ito. When they are first shuffled together for the Winter White Session, she barrages Ito with questions about their love life. When Ito's father asks the two why they like each other, Otoha interrupts with an excited, "I've always wanted to ask that too!"
  • Shrinking Violet: She's quiet, shy, and tends to blend into the background when Bell and Wakana are around. When she is forced out of Bell's group for a while, she learns to be honest to herself.
  • Tareme Eyes: Her eyes are gentle and soft to match her sweet temperament.
  • Token Good Teammate: Bell and Wakana are very unfriendly at first, while Otoha is nice and quiet. During the Dreaming Session, she is also a great sport to Ito and is excited when the latter decides to compete after all.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: During the Winter White Session, Ito and Otoha have a Tomboy and girly girl dynamic due to their image. On two occasions, Otoha played the princess to Ito's prince.

    Wakana Morizono 

Wakana Morizono

Style: Ethnic
Prism Jumps: Ethnic Splash (#1), Waking Flower Waltz (#2), Fresh Fruits Basket (#3), Bloom-Bloom-Blooming Love Flowers (#4), Heartbeat Memory Leaf (#5), Open My Flower (#6)
My Song: "Blowin' in my Mind"
Prism Live Instrument: Xylophone
Voiced By: Maaya Uchida

Wakana is a student of Edel Rose's female division. She is able to sense the wind of music. She is a ethnic-style Prism Star and uses the Prism Rainbow Xylophone during Prism Lives.


  • Academic Athlete: Based on her family's interactions, she's only allowed to stay in Edel Rose if she keeps up her grades, meaning that her grades must be very good.
  • Animal Motifs: She resembles a cat a lot by her hairstyle, her Cat Smile, and the way she says "nya" in her speech a lot.
  • Cat Girl: Wakana has a Cat Smile, uses "nya" in her speech, and her silhouette during her solo Prism Shows sometimes depicts a cat. Even her behavior is like a cat, as she often uses roundabout ways of expressing how she feels.
  • Cat Smile: Wakana has a cat smile and Cute Little Fangs to emphasize her cat-like appearance.
  • Character Development: The reason she's so rude to everyone around her is that she doesn't want to be hurt, because his father's job made Wakana move many times and saying goodbye is very painful for her. She accepts Ann's friendship eventually, and becomes more honest and free. She even smiles when she falls when trying to perform a Prism jump at the Prism Queen Cup.
  • Childhood Friends: Wakana has been best friends with Bell since childhood and had even persuaded her parents to let her stay in Tokyo just to be with her. She was also Ann's childhood friend, but since she was only at her school for 1.5 months, Ann doesn't remember her.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: When she lets her hair down, she is usually more shy and honest.
  • Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Wakana transferred to Ann and Kazuki's elementary school when she was in 4th grade. During that time, Ann had taught her how to do Prism Jumps. Since Wakana only attended their school for 1.5 months, Ann and Kazuki don't remember her at all.
  • Fortune Teller: Wakana can tell fortunes with Prism Stones, and when Bell Rose gets the opportunity to work at Prism Stone, she operates their fortune-telling corner.
  • The Gadfly: Wakana often drops taunts that rile up Bell and Ann.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: Kazuki invites Ann and Wakana to watch a horror film. Ann loves it, while Wakana becomes scared and starts screaming.
  • Graceful Loser: In the Prism Queen Cup, she falls when trying to perform a seventh Prism Jump, earning one of the lowest scores in the competition. She accepts it smiling, and even laughs about it.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: Wakana lets her hair down in the third opening.
  • Odd Friendship: At first glance, Wakana seems as though she doesn't care about Bell beyond being a Prism Star partner. However, she is the only person who truly knows how to deal with Bell's emotional being. When they attended the same elementary school, Wakana personally witnesses the pressure Bell faces from her Education Mama daily and saves her from being scolded. She and Bell become fast friends to the point where she begged her parents to let her stay when they were considering moving again.
  • The Rival: Wakana considers Ann her rival especially due to an incident in elementary school. They become Friendly Rivals after issues between them have been resolved.
  • Performance Anxiety: Wakana is too honed in on Edel Rose's rigid structures and being forced to obey her father that she becomes afraid of taking risks. Kazuki encourages her to be "free" and stop focusing on avoiding mistakes, which helps her overcome her performance anxiety.
  • Stepford Snarker: Wakana is very unfriendly and childish when talking to others, sometimes even to her own teammates, but she's just hiding her insecurities because she doesn't want to be hurt.
  • Smug Smiler: Pre-Character Development, Wakana often has a smarmy grin whenever she talks down on Ann or riles up Bell.
  • Tomboy: Out of the Bell Rose members, she's the most tomboyish. Naru even cites this as a reason to pair her up with Ito during the Winter White Session because they both have a boyish image and look great in pants.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Wakana used to be quiet and demure due to her upbringing, and she was very shy as a child. In present time, she's rude to Otoha and Ann, while seemingly acting like she's only with Bell out of convenience at times. She becomes kinder after her Character Development, though she's no longer demure.
  • Verbal Tic: She sometimes adds "nya" to the end of her sentences.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: After Wakana mends her friendship with Ann, they become best friends again. However, Wakana becomes quite combative again when she tries to hide that she's moving again during the Winter White Session and when she tries to get Ann to admit that she has a crush on Kazuki. However, Ann has learned how to handle her personality swings and helps her be honest about what she wants, while Wakana urges her to recognize her true feelings.
  • Wind Is Green: Wakana's theme color is green, and she can feel the "wind" of music.

Prism Boys / Over The Rainbow

    In General 

In General

Prism Jumps: Over the Rainbow
My Song: "Athletic Core" (Rainbow Live, King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm); "Flavor" (PriPara: Minna Atsumare! Prism Tours, King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm); "Nijiiro Crown" (Pride the Hero, Shiny Seven Stars)

Hiro, Koji, and Kazuki (collectively nicknamed as "Prism Boys" on official merchandise) are recurring side characters in Rainbow Live who are involved in the girls' lives to some capacity. At the end of the series, they debut as the group "Over the Rainbow" and become featured as the main characters in the Spin-Off film series, King of Prism.


  • Breakout Character: Over the Rainbow later became the main characters in their own Spin-Off film series, King of Prism.
  • Hero of Another Story: While the main six girls are mostly concerned with preparing for the Prism Queen Cup as well as saving the Prism Sparkle, Hiro, Koji, and Kazuki's subplot mainly deals with them fighting Edel Rose's corruption.
  • Image Song: "Athletic Core" is their group theme song.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The characters themselves aren't a spoiler, but the fact that they form a Prism Star unit at the end of the series is. They debut at the finale of Rainbow Live and it was supposed to be a surprise to the viewers (granted if you didn't notice wearing their dance outfits in the Spoiler Opening). However, due to King of Prism, it's almost impossible to go into the series without knowing this.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Despite their role in the series, the boys know nothing about the Prism World, nor are they aware that Rinne and June are Prism Messengers.
  • Second Year Protagonist: All of the boys are second-year high school students (11th grade).
  • Spear Counterpart: In a series that mostly stars female Prism Stars, they are the only prominent male group in the show.

    Hiro Hayami 

Hiro Hayami

Style: Star
Prism Jumps: Star Splash (#1), Starlight Kiss (#2), Absolute Idol: Love is a No-Go (#3), Starlight Express (#4) (Rainbow Live); Saint Splash (#1), Heroic Kingdom (#2), King of Breakshot Legend (#3), The King of Prism (#4) (Pride the Hero)
My Song: "Pride"
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno

Hiro is one of the top Prism Stars at Edel Rose. He doesn't get along with Koji for some reason.


  • Affably Evil: Hiro is quite selfish, but he gets along with everyone except for Koji (and Ito and Kazuki to some extent).
  • Big Man on Campus: Hiro is very popular at Kakyoin Academy due to being a Prism Star.
  • Catchphrase: "The only one who can sing Koji's songs best is me, Hiro Hayami!" He also tends to say "Good night", when leaving, which is also said during his "Starlight Kiss" Prism Jump.
  • Chick Magnet: Due to being a popular Prism Star, Hiro has a lot of Fangirls. During Kakyoin Academy's cultural festival, he's surrounded by girls from other high schools.
  • Character Tics: If he's wearing glasses, sometimes he'll take them off and bite the frame.
  • The Charmer: Hiro is very nice to girls and motivates them. He also uses this to advantage — on one occasion, he manipulates Naru into joining the Dreaming Session under Bell's request by encouraging her to explore her capabilities on a professional level (even if he never actually believed it in the first place).
  • Curtains Match the Window: His hair matches the honey-gold shade of his eyes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Hiro grew up extremely poor, in a run-down apartment with shabby clothing. His mother also ignored him a lot, and he never knew his father. Kou Himuro found him dancing in the park one night and decided to offer him a scholarship to Edel Rose and Kakyoin Academy. All in all, Hiro feels indebted to Edel Rose for saving him from hardship that he's desperate to debut to repay them and reunite with his mother.
  • Disappeared Dad: Hiro grew up without a father. In Pride the Hero, his mother tells him that she'll reveal who he is when she's ready, but she assures him that he is a kind person.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Hiro is introduced in episode 6, but everyone only really remembers him for his Yandere face when he drops all nice pretense towards Koji during the Dreaming Session, uttering his Catchphrase for the first time.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: The reason why Hiro was willing to do anything to debut, including stealing Koji's song, was because he comes from a poor background and he wanted to start earning income to support his mother. And if he quit? Jin would destroy his career by revealing his Dark and Troubled Past, making it all for naught.
  • Flower Motifs: Yellow roses are used in Hiro's Prism Jumps. Yellow roses also symbol jealousy in Japanese flower language.
  • Freudian Excuse: Hiro may be extremely manipulative, but it makes sense according to his childhood. He grew up under extremely impoverished circumstances, and when he was offered a way out, he was desperate to cling onto anything that would bring him to the top if it meant never returning to that life again.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In episode 45, Hiro sacrifices his Prism Star career by confessing that it was built upon lies on live broadcast, revealing that he grew up poor and that Jin had forced him to take credit for "Pride." He apologizes to his fans and Koji.
  • Heroic BSoD: In King of Prism: Pride the Hero, Hiro tries to ask Koji for help after Jin buys the copyrights to "Pride" and registers it as Louis' song. When Koji reveals he can't help him, Hiro spends the majority of the movie moping until the Edel Rose freshmen, Hijiri, and his mom show they support him.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Even though Hiro's methods are questionable, he really wants the best for his friends. He tries to warn Bell about Jin, offers advice to Naru, and only riles up Koji and Kazuki because he wants them to take advantage of their talents. Naru even tells him to his face that he's "actually a Nice Guy."
  • Image Song: The song Hiro mostly performs to is "Pride."
  • Manipulative Bastard: Hiro admires Koji so much that he will do anything just to sing his songs exclusively. Several instances include:
    • He encourages Naru to join the Dreaming Session not because he actually thinks she has a chance at winning — he wanted to show Koji that he wasted his song on her, as he expected from the beginning that she would crumble under pressure due to her lack of experience in Prism Shows.
    • He takes advantage of Koji's crush on Ito by threatening to commission her for a song if Koji wouldn't let him use "Pride."
  • Mr. Fanservice: He is the only recurring male Prism Star in the series who has debuted professionally, and a lot of his Prism Jumps casually reveal his navel and hip bones.
  • Lonely at the Top: He openly says he relates to Bell's struggle when she mentions that being lonely is natural for someone at the top. After Bell no longer cares about being the best, he sadly says that he will continue aiming for the top.
  • Megane: Hiro wears glasses sometimes when he's not performing and wears contact lenses otherwise.
  • Missing Mom: Hiro has been living apart from his mom ever since he was taken in by Kou Himuro. During his Heel–Face Turn moment, he tells her on live television that he still loves her and wants to see her again. She returns to visit him in the Rainbow Live finale.
  • Peerless Love Interest: He's in love with Bell, but she's so perfect that he's aware that he can never have her.
  • Pet the Dog: Even though Hiro is manipulative towards Koji and Prism Stone, he genuinely cares for Bell. When she becomes stressed out during the Heartbeat Days Session and Try Groovin' Session, he often keeps Wakana and Otoha updated and goes out of his way to allow them to be with her.
  • Prince Charming: Hiro's Prism Show performance mostly channels a princely persona. He also wins the Prism King Cup in King of Prism, showing that he's stepped up in more ways than one.
  • Promoted to Playable: Whereas the games never featured the male characters, Hiro becomes the first male character to become playable in the Nintendo 3DS game PriPara & Pretty Rhythm: PriPara de Tsukaeru Oshare Item 1450!
  • Smug Snake: He's rather condescending to Koji and Kazuki, calling them cowards for running away from problems.
  • Stepford Snarker: Hiro is kind towards the girls, even if he seems like he's hiding something, but he constantly intimidates Koji and Kazuki. This is because he's angry that Koji and Kazuki are talented in songwriting and dancing respectively and wasting their potential, especially when people of their caliber have the ability to change the landscape of Prism Shows and Edel Rose. While everyone else is oblivious and Bell only has a slight idea of what is going on, Kazuki is the first to truly realize that Hiro's constant provocation is a cry for help.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hiro likes apple-and-honey curry, and it is one of the things that brings him out of his funk in Pride the Hero. In King of Prism: Prism Rush! Live, you can buy apple-and-honey curry for him to improve his condition.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Hiro loses it every time someone other than himself sings Koji's songs, simply because he can't handle the thought of Koji sharing what was important to them with anyone else. Hilariously, Hiro's voice actor mentioned in the 2013 Christmas event that his favorite line from Hiro happened to be him gasping and freaking out from this moment. Some noticeable examples include:
    • After Naru accidentally lets it slip that Koji wrote her song despite Koji's warnings, Hiro pushes her to register for the Dreaming Session despite her being a newbie, just to rub it in Koji's face that he shouldn't have done that. Instead, Rinne gets Koji to sing for Naru to focus on her song, and she pulls off what the audience felt was the best performance in the tournament (even though she earns 0 karats for going over the time limit). This is also the first time Hiro's princely façade breaks.
    • While Hiro is trying to convince Jin to let Koji write his second single, he flips out when he finds Koji hanging out with Kazuki and challenges Kazuki to a re-match out of jealousy. Then he freaks out when he finds out that not only did Koji write Kazuki's song, but Kazuki was able to pull it off with dancing skills that matched his own, if not better. Also, the lyrics of the song were Koji's message to him, reminding him of an old conversation they had about wanting to become "heroes" instead of winners. He's so overwhelmed that he doesn't even bother trying to outmatch him.

    Koji Mihama 

Koji Mihama

Style: Heartpound
Prism Jumps: (no consecutive solo jumps)
Academy-style Prism Jumps: Heart-pounding Experience (King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm)
Battle Mode Prism Jumps: Red String Summer of Love, Honey Kiss (King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm); Jewel Spin Cross, Grand Spin Cross (Pride the Hero)
My Song: "Reboot"
Voiced By: Tetsuya Kakihara

Koji is a quiet, kind-hearted boy who's always found on the rooftop singing and playing his guitar.


  • Anguished Declaration of Love: When Koji tries to explain to Ito about why he rearranged the song she originally wrote for Hiro, he says that he wants to protect her after noticing she felt the same pain he did. However, this causes Ito to think he simply feels sorry for her and she tells him to leave.
  • Ass Kicks You: In King of Prism, one of his Prism Jumps is called "Honey Kiss", where honey literally comes out of his butt. This also is a source of Narm when Hiro starts sobbing over Minato's apple and honey curry, as it reminds him of their Prism Jumps.
  • Birds of a Feather: Koji relates to Ito because they are both musicians, and he feels he relates to the pain he senses through her music. And, as it turns out, the pain they relate to is the same because they're connected by the same tragedy involving their fathers.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: He's the brooding boy to Naru's gentle girl.
  • Childhood Friends: He's been friends with Kazuki since they were kids.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Koji is distant and cold at first, but he starts opening up more when Naru approaches him and begins defending his friends from Hiro. However, it's Ito who brings out his more affectionate side, as he starts exhibiting more of his gentle and protective nature when he's around her.
  • Disappeared Dad: Koji's father died six years ago, and he later learns that he was involved in a car crash caused by Ito's father.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In flashbacks, his hair was even shorter than his current cut. In King of Prism, his hair grows even longer and he ties it in a short ponytail.
  • Good Is Not Soft: In the beginning of the series, Koji is gloomy and bitter, but when Naru is able to prove that his songs make her happy, he starts opening up more. He also displays more of his gentle side when he falls in love with Ito and looks out for her.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Koji admits to Ito that he gave Hiro his song not just because he was afraid Hiro would take credit for hers, but mostly because he didn't want Hiro to perform a song specifically written by her.
  • Hair Antennae: Koji has two strands on the top of his head. When Happy RAIN goes on a class trip to Hokkaido, Ito sends him a photo of a water fountain because it reminds her of his hair.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Koji is easily riled up when it comes to people disrespecting his music and Hiro attempting to blackmail him through approaching Naru and the others.
  • Image Song: Koji's theme song is "Reboot", which he always sings on the rooftop, but he's never had a solo Prism Show.
  • Love at First Note: Koji becomes drawn to Ito after watching her Prism Show for the first time.
  • Love Confession: Bell, who can feel the "love" in music, notices that Koji's rearrangement of Ito's song was his way of confessing that he loves her.
  • Nice Guy: Koji is gentle, patient and kind.
  • Put on a Bus: In the first two King of Prism movies, Koji goes to Hollywood to help pay off Edel Rose's debt and thus doesn't compete in the Prism King Cup.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is romanized as "Koji" on most official merchandise, but in the PriPara movie, his name was written as "Kouji."
  • Supreme Chef: Koji is talented at cooking due to cooking for his mother at home. In King of Prism, this becomes one of his known specialties, as he sometimes cooks for the Edel Rose freshmen, and Minato only becomes interested in Prism Shows through his food-themed Prism Jumps.
  • Tell Me About My Father: Koji can't find information about his father because his mother won't tell him anything, so he opts to ask Ito's father instead.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: He was mostly gloomy in Rainbow Live and has been described as such by Bell and the Pair Friends. Kazuki tells Ito that Koji used to be rowdy, which she finds hard to believe. However, once all of Koji's problems are solved at the end of Rainbow Live, he becomes pretty open. In King of Prism, he's smiling and winking way more often.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: In King of Prism: Prism Rush! Live, you can buy coffee for him to improve his condition.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Koji and Hiro were Friendly Rivals when they attended Edel Rose, but when Hiro started caving into Edel Rose's obsession for fame and debut, Koji decided to leave Edel Rose completely. The fact that Hiro claimed songwriting credits for "Pride", a song that Koji wrote, still is a source of tension between them until this day. When Hiro Took a Level in Kindness at the end of Rainbow Live, they become Vitriolic Best Buds.

    Kazuki Nishina 

Kazuki Nishina

Style: Burning
Prism Jumps: Burning Splash (#1), Breaking Firestorm Burning (#2), Burning Sword Breaker (#3) (Rainbow Live); Freedom Splash (#1), Supreme Shoryuken (#2), Make Prism Show Great Again (#3) (Pride the Hero)
Academy-style Prism Jumps: Burning Love Heart, Heart-pounding Experience
Battle Mode Prism Jumps: Burning Splash, Breaking Firestorm Burning, Burning Sword Breaker, Breaking Downburst Bomber
My Song: "Freedom"
Voiced by: Toshiki Masuda

Kazuki is Ann's upperclassmen and is often found on the streets teaching people how to dance.


  • The Ace: Hiro reveals near the end of the series that Kazuki had once applied to Edel Rose and had the top score. However, Kazuki wasn't accepted because he was a fan of Rei Kurokawa and street-style performers, which goes against Jin Norizuki's philosophy.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Since Kazuki is seen a big brother figure, he often pats his friends' heads. He even has a Prism Jump called "Burning Love Heart" where he does it to the audience.
  • Anime Hair: White and spiky, which is not uncommon for a boy in a kids' show like this one, but unheard of for a male idol in an idol anime.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Shiny Seven Stars reveals that Kazuki won first place in the Miss Kakyoin Contest by crossdressing.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Everyone sees Kazuki as reliable, because he's very good at taking care of others. Even though he's Oblivious to Love, he's quite insightful about other people's feelings and knows how to address their flaws without drastically upsetting them.
  • Broken Pedestal: He's seen as an idol to many aspiring street-style Prism Stars, but in King of Prism, he draws critics from Taiga and Alexander, who once admired him, for using academy-style tactics (which involve pandering to female audiences) instead of the street-style he originated from. Kazuki actually doesn't care between using either styles just as long as he's able to get people into Prism Shows.
  • Catchphrase: "Burning!" and "Freedom!"
  • Childhood Friends: Kazuki is Koji's childhood friend. Ann also refers to him as her childhood friend but politely defers to him as mostly her senior.
  • Cooldown Hug: After Wakana fails to convince her father to not move away, Kazuki calms her down by hugging her and letting her cry on his shoulder.
  • Dance Battler: Kazuki is the character most involved in Prism Show duels. He has dancing matches with Hiro twice, and in King of Prism, he battles Alexander in the first movie.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Kazuki is noticeably tan and has platinum-blond hair. Flashbacks show that he naturally has black hair, but he dyed it to look like his idol, Rei Kurokawa.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: In Shiny Seven Stars, Hiro and Koji reveal that Kazuki won the Miss Kakyoin Contest by a landslide when he crossdressed. Note that Kakyoin Academy is an all-boys school.
  • Image Song: Koji gives him the song "Freedom", which he first uses during his re-match with Hiro.
  • Nice Guy: Kazuki is seen as reliable by all his friends and he's constantly being described as someone who's really good at taking care of people.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Kazuki's name has been romanized as both "Kazuki" and "Kaduki" on official merchandise.
  • Oblivious to Love: He immediately gets it when Bell tells him that Koji likes Ito, but he's oblivious when it comes to people having feelings for him, such as Wakana and Ann (later on). When his cousin tells him to get a girlfriend, he outright says he doesn't care about these sorts of things because he'd rather spend time with his friends.
  • Samaritan Syndrome: Kazuki is always seen helping others out and he can't leave anyone in trouble alone.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Kazuki likes senbei and often brings them as a snack for Ann during tournaments, much to her dismay. In King of Prism: Prism Rush! Live, you can buy senbei for him to improve his condition.

Chisato Ibara / Momo

Voiced by: Chie Kojiro


  • Big Eater: The reason why the cakes are disappearing at Prism Store is because Momo has been eating them all. When Ann makes a life-sized gingerbread house for Otoha, Momo has already eaten a quarter of it by the time she's able to show it off.
  • Blatant Lies: When the Prism Stone employees first find Momo, Chisato and DJ Coo first claim that Momo is Chisato's Pair Friend. Riiiight. Actually, she turns out to be DJ Coo's Pair Friend in a flashback.
  • Body Horror: Chisato reveals she is Momo after the first quarter of the series by opening up her human body. The Prism Stone employees freak out in horror.
  • Insistent Terminology: She's not a kappa; she's a penguin!
  • Meaningful Name: "Momo" means "pink", which is the color of her body.
  • Mentor Mascot: Chisato is the owner of Prism Stone, and her true form is a pink penguin named Momo.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Momo loves sweets and keeps eating the stock that Ann makes.
  • Verbal Tic: Sometimes, Chisato slips up and tags her speech with "momo", which is how she actually talks.

    DJ Coo 

DJ Coo (Rei Kurokawa)

Prism Jumps: EZ Do Burning
My Song: "EZ Do Dance"
Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo

DJ Coo is the DJ of Prism Stone. He also handles maintenance at the store and operates the Prism Trailer when they go on tours.


  • Beware the Silly Ones: DJ Coo often acts as a comic relief in the background, but he's also very insightful and offers great advice to the girls. But when he genuinely gets angry at Jin, he punches him in the face and would have beat him down if it weren't for Hijiri holding him back.
  • Catchphrase: "Cool!"
  • Funny Background Event: DJ Coo is sometimes seen in the background doing silly things. One memorable of moment was him yelling, "Busy! Busy!" while the girls are consoling Otoha.
  • The Glasses Come Off: When he sucker punches Jin in episode 45, his glasses come off, revealing that he's actually Rei Kurokawa, the legendary street-style Prism Star.
  • Gratuitous English: DJ Coo peppers a lot of English in his speech and also speaks with an exaggerated American accent.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He is based on DJ Koo from the dance music group TRF.
  • Smoking Is Cool: In King of Prism, he is seen lighting up a cig.
  • Sunglasses at Night: He wears sunglasses wherever he goes — even if it's indoors.

My Song: "Nth Color"
Prism Live Instrument: Baton
Voiced by: Rumi Shishido


  • The Ace: She became the youngest Prism Queen at the age of 13 and is able to do four consecutive Prism Jumps in a row, a feat no one else was able to pull off before Rinne appeared. This is because June is a Prism Messenger, just like Rinne.
  • Anime Hair: She's a very important character to the story, and both the color of her hair and its hairstyle particularly help her stand out.
  • Anti-Villain: She only wants to stay with Hijiri, but by staying in Naru's world as the Prism Queen, she's suppressing people from spreading the Prism Sparkle since no one can top her.
  • Anxiety Dreams: During Naru and Rinne's duo Prism Show at a charity event, June suddenly gets a vision of the seven girls performing the ceremony that will send her back to the Prism World. She decides to participate in the next couple of tournaments to prevent this from happening.
  • The Atoner: June chose Hijiri to spread the Prism Sparkle. When she fails to protect him from getting injured, she decides to compete in his place out of guilt.
  • Ballet: June incorporates ballet into her Prism Shows and her dress is essentially a fancy tutu.
  • Brought Down to Normal: The Prism Goddess turns June into a human to let her stay by Hijiri. As a result, June loses the ability to do Prism Jumps, meaning she cannot perform in Prism Shows anymore, and she also loses all of her memories from the time she was a Prism Messenger, meaning she has forgotten who Hijiri is. She gets her memories back from Louis in King of Prism: Pride the Hero, but not her ability to perform Prism Jumps.
  • Can't Catch Up: Because June is already able to perform five Prism Jumps after the Heartbeat Session, the girls find it nearly impossible to beat her when she partners with Rinne for the Winter White Session. The stakes are raised even higher during the Over the Rainbow Session, where the girls are obligated to beat her no matter what if they want to continue the existence of Prism Shows in the world.
  • Evil Counterpart: She is the preceding Rinne who wants to stay with Hijiri even if it means that the Prism Sparkle will disappear, whereas the current Rinne is trying to prevent her from doing so.
  • Expendable Clone: June fears losing her memories with Hijiri once she has to be replaced with a new Rinne, which causes her to act out against their rules. However, since she violated them, she's at risk of being killed/absorbed by a new Rinne (which Rinne tried during their Winter White Session duel) or die herself for spending too much time on Earth.
  • Forbidden Romance: As a Prism Messenger, June is not supposed to fall in love with humans, but she does anyway with Hijiri. She decides to cut ties with the Prism World to be with him.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: While Rinne has the bright and colorful Rainbow Feathers, June is identified with her dark Night Dream Feathers.
  • Gratuitous French: June's Prism Jumps, L'amour de L'ange (Angel Love) and La Flamme D'amour (Flame of Love) are in French.
  • Image Song: Her song is "Nth Color", which is about dedicating her love to Hijiri. Everyone cries when they first hear it.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Her hairstyle is two large Regal Ringlets sprouting out from a tiny ballerina bun.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: At the end of the series, the Prism Goddess decides to grant June's wish to stay with Hijiri by turning her into a human. However, she loses all of her memories from when she was a Prism Messenger, but she gets them back thanks to Louis in King of Prism: Pride the Hero.
  • Love Hurts: Jin alleges to the media that the only reason why June is the Prism Queen was because Hijiri pulled a few favors, so Hijiri tells the media that he and June are not romantically involved. For a while, June was desperately certain that Hijiri loved her, even though Rinne had warned her not to trust that feeling too much because her body will fall apart faster. So, when June hears that from Hijiri, it causes her body to get even weaker. When Hijiri finally makes an Anguished Declaration of Love, it's too late to save her.
  • Love Makes You Evil: She's more misguided than she is "evil", but she doesn't care that her overstaying her mission is causing the Prism Sparkle to disappear just as long as she gets to stay with Hijiri. She claims she can get Hijiri to spread the Prism Sparkle when he's no longer in condition to do that, as he can no longer compete in tournaments.
  • Mega Twintails: June's up-do consists of two large Regal Ringlets sprouting from a ballerina bun.
  • Mysterious Waif: Just like Rinne, she's from the Prism World.
  • Mystical Waif: June is a Prism Messenger, explaining her inhuman performance skills at Prism Shows.
  • Mystical White Hair: June has long, silver hair, and she is also the only person who can pull of four consecutive Prism Jumps until Rinne appears. This is because June is Rinne, or more specifically, one of Rinne-type Prism Messengers from the Prism World.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Her name is romanized as "June", but it's pronounced in the Japanese way, "joo-neh", with no relation to the name of the month. The Animax English dub pronounces it as "joon" (as in the name of the month), though.
  • Not Quite Human: June is a messenger from the Prism World.
  • Oh, Crap!: In King of Prism, June screams out in fear when Shine is awakened.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: June wears a very decorative tutu during her Prism Shows.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "May the Prism shine down on you!"
  • Precocious Crush: Given that June had been around Hijiri since he was competing in the Prism King Cup, she had to have been no older than 11 years old when she first met him. This is despite the fact that Prism Messengers don't have a specific age.
  • The Power of Love: She uses her love for Hijiri to achieve seven jumps in a row and stay in this world.
  • Purple Is the New Black: June's outfit is mostly black, but it is highlighted by deep violet, showing that Purple Is Powerful.
  • Regal Ringlets: When June puts her hair up, it becomes curled in ringlets.
  • The Shapeshifter: June is actually Rinne, or to be specific, the Rinne who precedes the one with Naru and Prism Stone. She had changed her appearance to resemble Hijiri's mother just to get close to him.
  • Secretly Dying: Since June cut ties to the Prism World, she cannot remain on Earth for very long due to her Night Dream Feathers draining her energy. Her duel with Rinne exacerbates her decay, and she finally "dies" during the Prism Queen Cup, allowing the new Rinne to merge with her.
  • Undying Loyalty: June is heavily devoted to Hijiri.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: It's her fault the Prism Sparkle is disappearing, because her status as the current Prism Queen is suppressing the humans' ability to spread the Prism Sparkle. She's also the one who caused Rinne to become an empty shell because two Rinnes aren't supposed to exist in the same dimension, and she had destroyed Rinne's wings before they could merge.
  • Walking Spoiler: The main plot of Rainbow Live begins to pick up once June begins to become more heavily involved in the story.
  • You Are Number 6: King of Prism Shiny Seven Stars reveals that she is version 3.17 of Rinne.

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Hijiri really loves June, and when she finally starts "dying", he confesses to her.
  • Career-Ending Injury: Hijiri used to be a Prism Star, but an accident planned by Jin injured his leg and he was unable to land four Prism Jumps during the Prism King Cup's Fly Sky High Session.
  • Character Tics: When Hijiri is stressed, he pulls his hair back in a ponytail.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: His hair is blond, and he's very kind to others. When June first sees him, she even mentions that he's pure-hearted.

  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears a pair of glasses, and he's awful and abusive to the Edel Rose students.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: King of Prism Shiny Seven Stars reveals that the reason why Jin wants to crush Edel Rose is because his mom hates it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In King of Prism Shiny Seven Stars, Jin becomes uncomfortable when Sanada gives Taiga a 50% score penalty. While Sanada has his eyes on using Edel Rose's influence to expand his company projects, Jin becomes angry because he "wants to beat Hijiri fair and square."
  • Evil Laugh: Especially in King of Prism.
  • Evil Mentor: Jin urges Hiro and Bell to be complicit with his plans and to focus on advancing their careers instead of worrying about other people.
  • Eyepatch of Power: In the finale for Rainbow Live, he wears a mask that over one of his eyes.
  • Hypocrite: In King of Prism Shiny Seven Stars, Jin confronts Sanada over giving Taiga a 50% score penalty and chides him for not playing fair. However, from a meta standpoint, Jin is no different and has a long list of similar (if not worse) things he has done to his rivals. Some of these things include giving Hijiri a Career-Ending Injury, getting Rei Kurokawa disqualified, and publishing lots of false or exaggerated rumors about June, Hiro, and Ryo Yamada (to the point Ryo actually had to quit his career early).
  • Manipulative Bastard: He constantly manipulates his students and is the reason Edel Rose has a hostile environment, setting up situations that pit students against each other in order to stay and debut. If anyone disagrees with him, he'll blackmail the person and permanently ruin any chance of having a Prism Star career. Jin also has the mass media under his control and can easily ruin anyone's livelihood through bribery and scandal.
  • Morality Pet: In King of Prism, Louis becomes his pride and favorite student. He claims that Louis reminds him of a younger version of himself and often calms down when he is around.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Jin still nurses a grudge against June for leaving Edel Rose and does all he can to strip her from her Prism Queen title.
  • Standard Evil Empire Hierarchy: He creates a new academics and Prism Star school called Schwarz Rose in King of Prism, using the old Prism Star Association building.
  • Technician vs. Performer: One of the core philosophies that Jin hammers into the Edel Rose students' heads is that precise consecutive jumps and movements are the key to scoring high in tournaments. He cares very little about Prism Lives and doesn't believe the "Prism Sparkle" exists.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Suffers from one when Hiro does a Heel–Face Turn in Episode 45.
  • We Can Rule Together: When June won the Prism Queen Cup four years ago, he offered her to help him run Edel Rose together, as he was crowned the Prism King. However, she promptly rejects him to follow Hijiri.
  • Wicked Cultured: He's greedy and spiteful, but he's also a former Prism Star and takes care of his rose garden sometimes.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Jin is quick to eliminate students as soon as they show any sign of weakness. When the female students are training for the Prism Queen Cup, he humiliatingly expels one student for falling while training.
