Kotori Minami has been friends with her fellow μ's members Honoka Kosaka and Umi Sonoda since they were children. Although she is known as a day-dreamer, Kotori takes her responsibilities as the μ's costume designer (alongside Nico Yazawa) and choreographer very seriously. She has a great sense of style and talent for design, always drawing up costumes for the group. Aside from her creative duties with the μ's, she is also a member of the student council, acting as Honoka and Umi's assistants in their student-council duties.

Kotori is very kind and supportive of all her friends, almost to a fault. She'll often comfort Honoka when she is scolded by Umi, even when Honoka may have deserved it. She also can be gullible, believing tall-tales told by her teasing classmates. Despite her somewhat air-headed nature, Kotori is the type of person who can't relax until all her work is done as soon as possible.

In the first season of the anime, it was revealed that Kotori worked in a maid cafe in Akihabara and is, in fact, a famous maid name "Minalinksy". Her kindness, cuteness and attentive demeanor lead her to be known as a "Legendary Maid" throughout Akihabara. Her part-time job at the maid cafe became a major plot point in the episode "Wonder Zone" where Honoka and Umi find out about Kotori secretly working as a maid. The episode produced the single "Wonderzone" which is sung by the μ's with Kotori Minami taking the central role of the song. It was also a track featured in μ's Best Album Best Live! Collection II.
