- Rizumu's catchphrase
Rizumu Amamiya (also known as Rizumu Toudou) is a Prism Star who is a part of Pretty Top, a member of MARs, and one of the main characters in Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream. She is the daughter of Sonata Kanzaki, a previous Prism Queen who became a legend because she succeeded in performing the legendary Prism Jump, the Aurora Rising.
PersonalityRizumu usually has a very energetic personality. She is very good at dancing. She seems to be knowledgeable about love from a certain book of hers. She gets riled up when anything involves food, especially when that food is meat. She is easily angered and will yell whenever she does not like someone's attitude. She is easily smitten when she thinks of Hibiki but is angry when Kanon keeps him to herself. This light personality is immediately erased when it comes to her mother and the Aurora Rising, which she so very much wants to jump. She will get completely serious and lose sight of her surroundings, and she becomes very passionate. For her goals, she will do anything, even losing her heart.
Rizumu has auburn-orange hair that reaches just above her waist and light brown eyes. She ties her hair into a long side-tail on her right side with a pink heart-shaped hair clip. The hair clip is normally replaced during Prism Shows.
In Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, Rizumu's hair has grown past her waist and she now ties her hair with a blue star-shaped hair clip.
Role in the Plot
Following a DreamRizumu was chosen along with Aira to become Prism Stars for Pretty Top. She shows utter passion for the chance to become a Prism Star. She tells Aira the reason why she wants to become a Prism Star is so that her mother, who disappeared when she was just an infant, would see her jumping the Aurora Rising, a jump that only her mother herself had jumped, and return for her. At first, Rizumu is a bit stand-offish; she didn't have any friends before Aira. This may be due to her harsh past of her mother leaving the house. However, with their clicking personalities and interest in Prism Shows, Aira and Rizumu soon become the best of friends. They also attend the same school and even the same class. When Rizumu is failing her tests and also loses her spot as a Prism Star because of it, Aira helps her get her grades back up.
Rizumu soon meets Hibiki, and they get along very well. Later, she finds him practicing at his "secret place", which they keep as a secret for only the two of them. Hibiki is thought to be a cool, calm prodigy who doesn't have to practice much, and he doesn't want his friends and fans finding out that he practices extra to improve himself further. After this encounter, they both start to have feelings for each other, feelings that gradually evolved into pure and mutual love.
Dear My FutureAfter Aira became Prism Queen, Rizumu and Mion, having no real plans for what to do next, accepted Aira's offer to restart MARs since they had completed their previous goals. They are still active as Prism Stars three years later in the future. At the training trip with both Prizmmy☆ and PURETTY, Rizumu gives advice to a worrying Hye In and the rest of the girls. She still has a major appetite, stealing Mia's lobster at dinnertime.
Later on, it is revealed that in fact Rizumu and Hibiki have been married for a year and a half, but have hidden this and have not been living together in order to not upset the fans. When Rizumu turns 18, she and Hibiki decide to announce their marriage at a Prism Show. Many fans were unhappy until P&P conveyed the meaning of "gratitude" through their song. After P&P's performance, everyone gave them their blessing, and even Kanon calls Rizumu "Onee-chan", meaning "big sister", meaning that whatever enmity between them that still remained has been resolved peacefully.Rizumu later gives Aira advice on her relationship with Shou, wearing a wedding ring and her wedding announcement in the paper. She tells her that since she and Hibiki made it work, why can't they try dating. She warns Aira that if Shou waits too long, he's going to let go of what's precious to him. She then runs off after she realizes she has to go home and make dinner for Hibiki, revealing that they are now living together.
Sometime afterward, Rizumu would find out about Aira's love triangle revolving around Shou and Yun-su. Alongside Mion, both of them had differing views towards who Aira should pick: Rizumu steadfastly believed in Aira's feelings for Shou while Mion decided that Yun-su represented a more suitable partner for Aira. Both of their differing opinions only served to confuse Aira even further, thus leading her to be easily brainwashed by Don Bonby, who was actually Kintaro Asechi in disguise.
In Mia's vision of the future, Rizumu and Hibiki are on their honeymoon at a beach, and behind them, her mother is holding her new little sister.
Rizumu's name comes from the Japanese rendition of the word Rhythm, and also from the name of the arcade game when it first debuted. Her surname Amamiya means "Palace of Heaven."
