How Honoka joined the Tourney

Honoka's family owns a Japanese sweets shop named Homura. She lives at the back of the shop with her mother, father, and little sister. Since she was young, she has been friends with Minami Kotori, and she befriended Sonoda Umi after inviting her to a game of hide-and-seek. She is also friends with Fumiko, Hideko and Mika at school. Her grandmother and her mother are both graduates from Otonokizaka.

Honoka is an optimist who is never afraid to take risks. She is always in a good mood and likes to look at the bright side of things. She is determined and once her mind is set on something, nothing can stop her. This is believed to be the driving force behind μ's formation and success. But because of her persistent personality, she often overexerts herself. Her personality is similar to Hoshizora Rin's because they are both determined and hard-working. For example, in Season 1 Episode 7, Honoka, Rin and Yazawa Nico had to work hard to pass exams in order to enter the Love Live! (School Idol Tournament), and are known as the "San baka" (三馬鹿 lit. Three Idiots). She likes to eat bread, but she does not enjoy eating red bean paste or white bean paste despite working at her family's Japanese sweets shop.

With the Muse invited to not only perform, but also compete in the Second Tourney, Honoka is excited for the chance to perform in front of several fighters. What she doesn't know is that she is being targeted by Storm Shadow, who seeks to recruit her into Cobra Command.
