About Kaede Takagaki

THE iDOLM@STER Kaede Takagaki - A Cool, Calm, Collected Idol

Kaede Takagaki is a character from a Japanese arcade game by 765 Production called The Idolmaster (stylized as THE iDOLM@STER and abbreviated as IMAS or IM@S). Kaede is a mature and mysterious idol in the game's "Cool" character category. She is very quiet, only speaking when and as much as necessary. Though she can be shy, she loves wordplay and can come up with witty puns when the opportunity presents itself. She has heterochromia, a condition that causes her eyes to be two different colors. She also has a beauty mark under her left eye. Kaede loves expensive alcohol (especially wine) and, despite her normally reserved demeanor, she takes on a devious and manipulative persona while intoxicated. While her speaking voice is soft and quiet, her singing voice is powerful and resonant. She is voiced by Saori Hayami.

The Idolmaster (stylized as THE iDOLM@STER, and abbreviated as IMAS or IM@S) debuted in arcades across Japan as a raising simulation and rhythm video game by Bandai Namco Entertainment in 2005. The original arcade version of Idolmaster primarily centers around the career of a producer who works with a group of prospective idols at the talent agency 756 Production (or 756 Pro). A recurring theme in the series emphasizes the struggles an idol must go through to achieve stardom. The franchise has since grown into numerous sequels and spin-offs across multiple game consoles, including three social network games. The series has also produced a variety of other media such as anime DVDs, soundtrack CDs, manga and other print media, audio dramas, radio shows and a Korean drama. This vast range of works has culminated into the multimedia development project known as Project iM@S, with official releases in Japanese, Korean, Chinese and English.

Kaede's image stat specialty in Starlight Stage can either be Vocal or Visual, depending on the card. Her love of wordplay extends to homophones and puns. Kaede consistently ranks high in the annual Cinderella Girls Election and has been included in every album that was based on the results of the election. She is the only idol to hold this distinction, with Rin Shibuya and Uzuki Shimamura trailing her by being featured on three out of the four albums. Kaede was voted the most popular Cinderella Girls character in the 6th Cinderella Girls Election, earning her the "Cinderella Girl" title.
