- "I've still got far to go... I want to be an idol that sparkles brighter than anyone else."
Hiori is a stoic and serious girl who is very passionate and hardworking about being an idol, but she doubts herself and compares herself to others. She has a hard time opening up and trusting people. She is a first year in high school like her Illumination STARS unit members Mano Sakuragi and Meguru Hachimiya.
Initially, Hiori was unsure about being part of illumination STARS. She worries that she isn't as skilled as her new unit mates, Mano and Meguru. Mano has a naturally pretty singing voice and Meguru has played sports for a long time, helping her with her stamina and dance. Hiori worries that she's holding the unit back, despite working just as hard as the other two girls. She runs into Mano on a day off and they discuss the unit together. They realize that they have both been doubting themselves and that the best thing to do is communicate and work together as a unit. Soon after they all learn to work together, Hiori gets sick. She starts to worry again that she will fall behind. When she comes back, Mano and Meguru are acting weird and Hiori thinks it's the end of their unit, or their friendship. But Mano and Meguru are just concerned for Hiori's wellbeing and throw her a surprise party. Hiori finally realizes that she has friends she can trust and rely on no matter what.
