Ann's appearance in the third cour of the anime

Ann is a very fashion-conscious middle school girl with average height. She has somewhat round, bright blue eyes. Her long hair is tied into a side ponytail and clipped into a loop, often with a variety of blue barrettes, otherwise a plain one if she is performing. Sometimes she clips her hair with many other sorts of accessories. Although initially portrayed with straight hair, it is shown to be slightly wavy when untied.[2]

Ann's casual attire often consists of short skirts to bring out her energetic personality.[3] She wears this type of clothing when it comes to both casuals and Prism Shows. Some examples of her clothing are shorts, jackets and overalls in order to employ her energetic nature. Her clothes are also much more colorful and brighter than the other girls.

PersonalityEdit

Ann arguing with her father

Ann is a cheerful and upbeat girl who will not give in to anyone.[1] Her passionate spirit allows her to do the things she wants to do and she is always pushing to do new things.[4] Because of this, Ann is always fighting with her father as he already decided she will be taking over the senbei shop, but she can tell deep down when he accepts what she wants to do and is too stubborn to give in and admit it.[5] She always gets bored making senbei and prefers to make sweets, but she still likes senbei very much.[5]

As the girl with the leader-like personality, she can be very persuasive such as when she made Ito give them permission to call her by her first name[1] and when she made Naru and Ito immediately start their training program in order to become better Prism Stars.[6] Because of this side of hers, Wakana calls her Ally of Justice (正義の味方; Seigi no Mikata). She is also referred to by that name by Naru, and possibly by other students, as she is the class captain and Prism Show club president of the school and often sides with the students to help them persuade the teachers.[7] Ann had also known to have had this leader-like and friendly personality for a long time such as when she was younger, she convinced Wakana to join the Prism Show club.[2]


Ann Welcoming

Ann's welcoming personality

Although being the hero-type character, she may be incorrect at times without realizing. Even though she told the others to keep their promises, Ann realized that she wasn't able to keep her own promise when she was younger with Wakana. After learning how Wakana felt, she stopped thinking about herself and apologized to her. Although Wakana forgave her, they became rivals rather than friends and continue to argue with each other. Even so, the others see that they get along well.[2] Despite being clever, she is revealed to be dense when it comes to love.[8] That is, until Wakana was able to make her admit that she was in love with Kazuki. [9]


HistoryEdit

Young Ann

Young Ann at her first proper Prism Show

Ann had been performing in Prism Shows since she was little, but her first official Prism Show was when she was seven. Her father showed up first and sat right in the front which embarrassed Ann. Apparently, he was also the one who bought her outfit at the time.[5]


Ann and Wakana Young

Ann has also been friends with Kazuki Nishina for a long time because they were both the best in the Prism Show club at their old school. During her fourth grade, she saw Wakana Morizono and invited her to join the club despite having no experience in performing Prism Shows at all. Wakana decided to try out so Ann taught her how to skate and soon they both started enjoying themselves. Suddenly, Wakana performed a Prism Jump out of the blue and Ann told her she was amazing and that she could get better if she joined the club.


Ann Young

Ann performing on the day of the show

Wakana admired Ann and attended the club everyday to get better. During an event one day, it was decided that Ann would have the center position but she sprained her ankle and couldn't practice. Because she might not be able to perform on the day, Ann promised Wakana the center position and gave her the outfit that she was to use. From then on, Wakana decided to practice harder than ever in order to catch up to Ann, however, Wakana fell sick on the day and Ann who's ankle had recovered replaced her. Without realizing, Ann broke her promise to Wakana to make it a good show and Wakana moved out the next day without telling Ann or Kazuki.[2]

Ann and Ito are holding hands

Although they didn't get along at first, Ann still tried to get along with Ito despite her attitude and lack of motivation to even help out at their store. The two were very different as Ann liked to do the right thing and was always leading while Ito would not bother to help with anything and skip work. Her friendly and willing personality, however, was able to persuade Ito into doing many things, such as when she made Ito give her and Naru permission to call her by her first name. Often they would tease each other, but they still got along well. When they converse, Ann would always yell at her, and Ito would always reply in a calm and cool manner. Gradually, the two started to get along like proper comrades and good friends. When they had their field trip to Hokkaido, Ann and Naru learned more about Ito from her mother while they were in Biei. During a charity event at Dear Crown, the two held hands as they watched Naru perform.

Ann and Otoha test their compatibility for the Winter White Session

Otoha is one of Ann's friends. The two met when Otoha was kicked out of Bell's team, and Ann along with Naru and Ito invited her in. When Ann was talking to Otoha, she helped Ann by pointing out the tables at her cafe that were in trouble, making the two almost seem like a perfect match. However, when the Winter White Session was announced, Ann and Otoha were about to team up since their specialties in sweets and tea go well together, but they ended up being completely incompatible.
