    Aroma Kurosu

Voiced by: Yui Makino

Aroma is a young, idealistic girl representing the dark half of her original unit, Aromageddon. With her short temper she leads with manipulation and charm to get her way- although not too many people buy it. Deep down she is actually very shy. A cool-type Idol who originally used Holic Trick Classic until she created Love DEVI.

General tropes

  • Berserk Button: Aroma's reaction to finding Mikan accepting food from someone else was to denounce her as a friend. She gets better after learning the true reason behind the gesture.
  • The Corrupter: Tried to be this when she first appeared to convince each member in Dressing Pafe and Solami Smile to drop their unit to join her own.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: While the coloring is average, the way they are drawn borders on this.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: The bad to Mikan's good.
  • Large Ham
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Gets mad fairly often.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • The first part of her last name "Kuro" means Black. She is often represented by black and other dark colors.
    • Her name, Aroma, is related to the sense of Smell. Both the color and sense naming was thematic with season 2.
  • Odd Friendship: This appears to be the case with Mikan, an "angel".
    • This could also count towards their youth, when Mikan was very energetic and Aroma was withdrawn and shy.
  • Punny Name: "Kurosu" aside of containing "Kuro" on it, sounds just like "cross", a common element in her coords.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Has the image, but not the personality.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Some spell her name "Aloma".
  • Shrinking Violet: Revealed to have been this in the past. She began to act like a devil in order to gain confidence.
  • Poisonous Friend: Comes off this way to those she wants to manipulate, but this trait is toned down early on in Season 2.
  • Tsundere: Mainly towards Mikan, but at times towards those who show her kindness.
  • Verbal Tic: Often adds "Devi" to her sentences.

As an elementary student

  • Bratty Half-Pint: Gives this impression, due to her lack of respect for authoritative figures. She also acts demanding and arrogant.
  • Hair Decorations: Wears a headband with bat wings attached.

As an idol


    Mikan Shirotama

Voiced by: Yui Watanabe

A well-meaning but easily manipulated angel who joins Aroma in their original unit Aromageddon. Mikan is friendly, but somewhat dense and easily motivated with the promise of food. She is a lovely-type Idol and uses the brand Silky Heart.

General tropes

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: It's hard to keep her focus on anything unless it involves food or Aroma.
  • Balloon Belly: From eating too much chocolate in episode 82.
  • Blind Obedience: She follows Aroma because of their friendship, no questions asked. She also agreed to become an Angelic Idol so that she could remain by Aroma's side.
  • Big Eater: Loves nikuman and sweets, and is often manipulated this way.
  • Fearless Fool: Unless it involves snakes.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Comments that she was more tomboyish when she was younger, and is sort of a Passionate Sports Girl.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: The good to Aroma's bad.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • The first part of her last name "Shiro" means White, contrasting the "Kuro" of Aroma's last name.
    • Her name, Mikan, means "tangerine", while the "Mi" can also mean "to see", representing the sense of sight.
  • Miss Exposition: She often translates Aroma's archaic way of speaking.
  • Odd Friendship: With Aroma, a "devil".
    • This was also apparent during their youth, with Mikan being energetic and Aroma withdrawn and distant.
  • The Corrupter: A much softer example than Aroma. She helped her try to convince almost everyone in Dressing Pafe and Solami Smile to drop their unit to join their own.
    • She was also the one who helped Aroma find her devil personality, although it was only to help her with their class play and to be more confident with herself.
  • The Ditz
  • Third-Person Person
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Since childhood Mikan wore her hair in a ponytail, although it was much shorter. In a flashback, Mikan described herself as being an energetic tomboy.
    • Used to Be a Tomboy: According to herself. She appears to have become more feminine to fit her angel persona.
  • Verbal Tic: Often adds "Jeru" or "Nano" to her sentences.

As an elementary student

  • Hair Decorations: a scrunchie with a tangerine attached to it that has wings.
    • When she was younger she wore a Hanami Dango clip.

As an idol

  • Feather Motif: To fit her angelic theme, her outfits normally include wings or feathery features.
  • Hair Decorations: Normally ornaments with angel wings, hearts, or ribbons.
  • Older Alter Ego: Like Laala, Aroma, Non, and Chiri, she appears to be aged up to that of a Middle School student as an Idol.


Voiced by: Asami Sanada

Gaaruru was one of the several Mini-Farurus and one that Faruru was close to. She was highly temperamental and grouchy until it was discovered to be because of the spiny bug she swallowed sometime prior to meeting everyone. Eventually she desired to become an Idol and gained a form matching Faruru's, but at times she reverts back into Mini form. While Faruru represents the dream of girls pursuing top Idol at all costs, Gaaruru is said to represent failed Idols or girls unable to make it. She is a Lovely-type and uses the same brand as Faruru, Marionette Mu. When performing as Gaarumageddon she uses Love DEVI at times.

  • Anime Hair: As a Mini-Faruru she had very simplified pigtails. But after changing form she gained Faruru's thick curling drills separated into three sections on each side.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Determinator: Highly stubborn when it comes to her goals. Despite her failure of a first performance she kept getting back up each time she fell and continued until finishing the performance. It was because of her determination that Mirei resumed her own Idoling.
  • Hair Decorations: Originally she had red straps on her hair and a white and grey set of headphones. After changing forms she loses the straps and her headphones gain an elaborate design. She also began to wear horned accessories with her coords.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: 99 Mini-Faruru sisters.
  • Meaningful Name: "Gaa" is the sound of growling. At first, she was unable to properly talk and could only growl after swallowing a spiny bug. Later, it relates to her desire to become a "monster idol".
  • Palette Swap: If not wearing Faruru's original pink dress, she is often found in the red recolor of it.
  • Pair the Spares: In terms of units. She needed two members, Aroma and Mikan needed one, so they became a (temporary) unofficial unit.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Many Marionette Mu coords are this.
  • Ojou Ringlets
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Garuru or Gaaruru.
  • The Klutz: Only during her first performance, as she had not gotten used to her new form yet.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After coughing up the spiny bug, the cause of her hostilities and bad attitude. While she may not be the nicest Idol in the series, she is a real sweetie to those she likes.
  • Tsurime Eyes
  • Verbal Tic: "-Gaaru."

How well does it match the trope?
