Hero Overview

Rin Hoshizora is one of the nine main characters in Love Live!. She is 15 years old and a first year in high school. Rin was born on November 1 and is a Scorpio. She has short, orange hair and chartreuse eyes. Her main color is a yellow-green color. Rin is 155 centimeters tall, and her blood type is A. She along with Umi Sonoda and Nozomi Toujou are a part of Lily White, a mini idol under µ's.

She is voiced by Riho Iida in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Faye Mata in the English version of the anime.


Rin is a first year student who has been friends with Hanayo Koizumi since they were little girls. She is very well known for having a huge heart for cats and for acting like them; she tends to utter nya~! (meow), either as a way to end her sentences or to show her happiness. In addition, she sometimes acts like a cat and does the signature curved-mouth look.

As a little girl, Rin was often teased for wearing skirts. Because of this, she decided to avoid wearing skirts and dresses in public, other than for her uniform. This insecurity is later what contributes to her inability to see herself as fit for a school idol, even though she really likes the idea of being one. Even so, she later joins μ's on Season 1 Episode 4 alongside Hanayo and her fellow classmate Maki, supporting the former in her endeavor to be a school idol.


Rin appears to be a tomboy due to playing sports and not wearing a skirt when she was a little girl. She mostly teases Hanayo Koizumi and appears to be with her most of the time. Her personality is similar to Honoka Kousaka's because they're both determined and hard-working. For example, in episode 7, Rin, Honoka and Nico Yazawa had to work hard to pass exams in order to enter the Love Live! tournament, and are known as the "Three Baka!"

She also usually ends her sentences with nyan~! (Meow). This could be a pun of Momoko Tsugunaga, a Japanese idol who is famous for her "yurushite nyan~!" ("Forgive me, meow!"). In addition, she sometimes acts like a cat and dons the signature curved mouth look. In one of the songs, she even dressed up with cat ears and tail.

Clubs and Hobbies

Rin Hoshizora is great at sports, and is skilled in hurdling, football, and basketball.
