Rizumu Amamiya (later known as Rizumu Toudou) is a one of the main characters in Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream. She is the daughter of Sonata Kanzaki, the previous Prism Queen who became a legend because she succeeded in performing the legendary Aurora Rising.
Rizumu has a light complexion with big, slightly slanted brown eyes and long orange hair worn loose with a curled segment pulled into a side-tail on the right of her head, held by a pink heart. Her bangs are mostly brushed to the left with a small split off-center.
In Dear My Future, her hair has grown and appears to have more volume, and her bangs have changed in style. She wears a blue star instead of a heart. Her overall appearance looks more mature.
Rizumu's attire is tomboyish and sporty with colorful prints and pop patterns, usually consisting of sneakers, hoodies, and shorts. She lacks a sense of style and at times puts together gaudy outfits she genuinely believes looks good.
Rizumu has a very energetic and spirited personality and she rushes into everything head-first with full determination. Passionate and hot-blooded, she gets riled up easily and often yells out in displeasure or excitement. She is shown to be a talented dancer and because of her energy, a lot of stamina. She also really likes food- especially meat and chocolate, and she claims to be knowledgeable about love due to a book she has. Although whenever Hibiki flirts with her she gets extremely flustered.
However, she is also shown to be absent-minded at times and a little clueless, and she lacks Mion's maturity and Aira's gentleness, so her abrasive nature -good intention or not- tends to rub others wrongly. She doesn't appear to be very feminine and struggles with things like fashion and delicateness, but she is generally friendly though and doesn't like to see others being sad. She has trouble with school some times.
This light personality is immediately erased when it comes to her mother and the Aurora Rising. She can sound selfish and coldly uncaring around others in such cases, and she becomes completely serious- losing sight of everything going on around her. For her goal she will do anything, even if it means throwing away friendship and losing her heart. Deep down she suffers from feelings of insecurity and loss, as a result of not having her mother around.
A Rough Start
On the day of her debut as a Prism Star for Pretty Top, Rizumu had been rushing through the crowded mall when she nearly ran into Aira Harune. She ran off after making an impressive landing when she jumped to avoid her, and later reappeared after Aira was dragged back to the performance hall and forced to debut alongside her.Despite her inexperience and clumsiness, Aira was able to perform a Prism Jump- much to Rizumu's ire. In hopes of discovering how she pulled it off in order to bring herself one step closer to finding her mother, she began to observe Aira and revealed that she didn't have friends prior to her because she would keep herself distant from others.
However, because of Aira's kindness and dedication to making others smile through fashion and keep going, Rizumu slowly began to open up to her and learned the value of what she wore. Their personalities also clicked right away and they became quick friends, although they would sometimes disagree.
Eventually, Rizumu is forced to deal with not only her poor school grades, but she confides in Aira that her mother had abandoned her, which is why it's so important for her to become Prism Queen and perform the Aurora Rising, the legendary jump she did.
Echoing InspirationAs Rizumu and Aira began to grow as Prism Stars, Rizumu soon met Hibiki and quickly fell for his good looks and wise advice- but she was often seemingly at odds with him because of him teasing her. He allowed her to visit his "secret practice place" whenever she needed someone to talk to, and over time, they began having feelings for each other, feelings that gradually evolved into pure and mutual love.
However, to get in the way of that was the girls' new rivals Serenon, with one of its members, Kanon Toudou being Hibiki's younger sister. Rizumu and Kanon instantly disliked each other, with their relationship with Hibiki fueling the others feelings of hate further.
Following A Dream
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."
