|Anime||Episode 01 - I Became an Idol!|
Mirei Minami (南みれぃ Minami Mirei) is one of the main characters of the series. She is voiced by Yu Serizawa, a member of i☆Ris. She is an 8th grader at Paprika Private Academy. She is a pop type idol, with her preferred brand being Candy Alamode PriPara world. Her catchphrase is "Pop, Step, Get You!" (ポップ・ステップ・ゲッチュー！ Poppu Suteppu Getchū!?) and tends to end her sentences with "~pri". She is also the head disciplinarian at Paprika Private Academy.
During Idol Time PriPara, she has been transferred to Aquaprium.
Normally, Mirei has long, chestnut-shaded hair that's pulled into a high ponytail with strait-cut bangs. She has matching caramel brown eyes and wears a pair of black glasses.
In PriPara, Mirei's hair changes to a bright blonde, with part of it wrapping up to form pointed buns, while the lower half becomes noticeably wavier, and falls to just brush her shoulders. Her eyes become an electric-blue, and she loses the glasses.
Mirei is a smart and studious girl who happens to be very good at puzzles. She is very serious and can be strict with rules, even if they don't make much sense to others. Her catchphrases are "Keisandouri" (計算どおり), meaning "Just as calculated","Keisangai" (計算外), meaning "miscalculated." and Poppu Steppu Getchu!!
Due to her analytical and stern personality, she is the captain of Paprika Private Academy's disciplinary committee.
As her idol character, she usually ends her sentences with" -pri", and her idol catchphrase is "A pop and a step and I've got you~!". She is easy-going and perky here, but still shows a bossy personality when things don't go right.
