As announced on the Dollfie Dream Twitter feed in the wee hours of the morning here in North America- the other Doffie Dream for HT Dolpa Sendai 2 in August is Kaede Takagi!
This lovely girl has mismatched eye color AND a beauty mark. I am super in love with her unique look. I can’t wait to see what her casual clothing set looks like~ ❤ Perhaps a preview of her clothing can be found in her official images from the games she is featured in?
She comes from the franchise Idol Master which doesn’t have a huge following in North America, but is everywhere in Japan:
“The Idolmaster (アイドルマスター Aidorumasutā, officially stylized as THE iDOLM@STER) is a Japanese raising simulation and rhythm video game series created by Bandai Namco Games (formerly Namco). The series primarily centers on the career of a producer who works with a group of prospective pop idols at the talent agency 765 Production. Originally released as an arcade game in 2005, the franchise has grown to numerous ports, sequels and spin-offs across multiple video game consoles, including three social network games. The series includes a variety of other media such as anime, printed media, audio dramas, a Korean drama, and radio shows.” (wikipedia)
Kadae’s character in particular is from a spin off series: The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls.
“The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls (アイドルマスター シンデレラガールズ Aidorumasutā Shinderera Gāruzu, officially stylized as THE iDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS) is a Japanese free-to-play simulation video game developed by Cygames and Bandai Namco Entertainment for the Mobage social network platform for mobile phones. It was first released on November 28, 2011 for feature phones, and compatibility was extended to iOS and Android devices on December 16, 2011. The game is based on The Idolmaster franchise, and features a cast of new idol characters. In September 2015, a music video game developed by Cygames titled The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage was released on the Google Play Store and Apple Store in Japan.
The story in Cinderella Girls follows the career of a producer in charge of leading and training prospective pop idols to stardom. Its gameplay follows a collectible card game format in which each idol is represented as a card, which the player may use to form a unit of idols to train in lessons, take to jobs, and compete against opponents. Cinderella Girls has made transitions to other media. An anime television series adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures aired in Japan between January 10 and October 17, 2015 and was simulcast by Daisuki. Eight manga series, three sets of manga anthologies, two Internet radio talk shows featuring the series’ voice actresses, image song singles and albums, and live concerts have also been produced.” (wikipedia)
Thanks to the iM@SWiki we know this about her character:
“Kaede is a mature and mysterious idol belonging in the Cool category. She is very quiet, never saying more than necessary. Her hobbies are visiting and relaxing in onsen. She’s also a huge fan of puns, crafting witty wordplay as the opportunity allows. She can instantly smell the difference between body wash and shampoo products, has heterochromia, and has a beauty mark under her left eye.
Once Kaede has had a few drinks, all of her common sense goes out the window. She gains a devious and manipulative persona when intoxicated. She will push aside any notion to quit drinking and is not above encouraging the teenage idols to drink with her. She loves to enjoy expensive or really tasty drinks, particularly wines.
While her everyday speaking voice is soft and quiet, her singing voice is powerful and resonant.”
