The anime is going strong, and from “Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doujyoukai”, we’re going to take a look at one of the newest members, Shioriko Mifune!
We’ll take a look at her characteristics and charm, how she came to join the group, her current situation, and her relationship with the other members!
Shioriko Mifune Character Profile
A female character in the game application “Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS (Squasta).

In the squadron, she made a full-scale appearance in Chapter 8, Episode 1.
When she asks Nana Nakagawa, the student council president, to advocate for improvements in the various club activities of Nijigasaki, which are based on desire and seniority, she finds out that Nana is spending her time doing what she wants to do, and declares war on Nana to start reforming the school.
He is a self-confessed honor student and a “perfect superhuman” who is extremely serious and inflexible.
He is a meritocrat who places great importance on aptitude and thoroughly eliminates waste, while at the same time trying to push his own ideas too aggressively.
Having grown up in a strict family, he is not used to jokes and is a “straight” person who takes everything seriously.
She is the second daughter of the Mifune family, one of the most prominent families in Japan. She enjoys Japanese dance and is a master of tea ceremony and flower arrangement.
Although she is not very affectionate, she seems to be able to treat children softly.
Her image color is “jade green”.
As of November 2020, she does not have a unit to which she belongs, but has been involved in the anime “Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doujikai”.
Her voice actress is Moeka Koizumi.
The first additional member of the Love Live series
Shioriko has appeared in Squasta in a position where it’s no exaggeration to say that she is the “enemy” of the Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Club.
However, being an antagonist in itself is nothing special.
In the past two anime, Eri Ayase, who refuses to acknowledge the activities of Honoka Kosaka and the rest of the μ’s, and Saint Snow, the biggest rival of Aqours, have stood in the way.
In fact, we can say that Shioriko’s stance is similar to Erich’s.
She was working on her own to save Otonokizaka Academy, and was in a position to restrain μ’s from taking a different stance, but Shioriko also saw the current student council president, Nana Nakagawa, or Setsuna Yuuki, as an enemy because she wanted to make Nijigasaki Academy better.
But that’s not all for Shioriko.
When she ran for student council president, she pledged to “abolish unproven club activities,” including the school idol club, and dismissed school idols as “useless” and “of no use in the future.
This is what makes them different from the people who have become walls in the previous stories of μ’s and Aqours, and it is also the reason why they can be clearly described as enemies.
This is the reason why they can be described as enemies.
Those who have feelings for Setsuna naturally see Shioriko as an enemy, and fans of the other members also voiced their opposition, but at the same time, there were more than a few fans who were interested in her backbone.
Since she appeared in such a clear enemy position, it was expected that she would have some reason to be hostile to the school idols …….
And that prediction was right on the money.
The reason for Shioriko’s hostility towards the school idols was her sister.
Shioriko’s sister is Kaoruko Mifune.
She’s the one who was mentioned by name only in Chapter 7 of Squasta, as the person who started up the big School Idol event “School Idol Festival”.
Born as the eldest daughter of the Mifune family, she was supposed to be the heiress of the Mifune family.
However, Kaoruko chose to become a school idol, and after her retirement, she continued to work behind the scenes as a representative of the School Idol Festival committee.
Shioriko interpreted this as a sign that she had strayed from the path because of her inappropriate lifestyle, and resented the school idols.
Shioriko sticks to her beliefs and wins the election for student body president, but her excessive “aptitude” is antagonized by the students, and her centripetal power declines.
However, her excessive “aptitude” has caused her to lose popularity with the students, and as she interacts with the club, she realizes her problems and changes her mind, and cooperates with them to hold the extremely difficult School Idol Festival.
On August 3, 2020, three days after the conclusion of the first season of the main story, it was announced that Shioriko would join the Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Club as an official member.
This is the first time in the history of the Love Live series that a new member has been added after the group’s nine members have been announced.
