Summary Edit

Rin Hoshizora is a 15-year-old, first-year high school student and an energetic girl who's fond of sports. She would rather move her body than worry about things. She ends up participating in everything just because they sound interesting. Most likely due to her involvement in sports, she is very helpful and often looks after her childhood friend, Hanayo. Her responses are always full of energy and she puts her all into practices.


Rin has been friends with Hanayo Koizumi since they were children. She likes to play sports and she often used to dress like a boy. When she was still a child, she was often teased because of this fact, so she was not used to wearing skirts.

Love Live! Wiki has more information related to Rin Hoshizora


Rin appears to be a tomboy due to playing sports and not wearing a skirt when she was a child. 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. She also usually ends her sentences with nyan~! (Japanese onomatopoeia for a cat meowing) and is often depicted in cat costumes.

Side StoriesEdit

SmileIconSpeaking of Summer... (Rare #32)

Rin: When I hear, "summer", I think of playing in the water.

Rin: I went to the pool with everyone in µ's recently.

Rin: I'm the best swimmer in the group.

Rin: That's right! I'll teach you how to swim! Exclaimationpoint

Rin: OK, you move your hands like this and pull, and you move your legs like this... And then... and then... Huh? You don't get it?

PureIconIf I Knew Magic (Rare #41)

Rin: I want to be able to get good grades on tests without having to study...

Rin: Then I could play all day and practice my singing and dancing!

Rin: Huh? If I could only choose one subject? QuestionMark

Rin: Which one? It'd have to be English, right? But also math... Hmm... So hard to choose!

Rin: Oh well. I'll just have to have you teach me all the other subjects! Exclaimationpoint

CoolIconA Place to Go (Rare #50)

Rin: I'd love to take a tour of a bunch of delicious ramen shops!

Rin: What kind of ramen do you like?

Rin: Me? Well... Hee hee... I love every kind of ramen!

Rin: Huh? What do I like about ramen? QuestionMark

Rin: It's hot... And looking at it makes me happy... Just like you! ♪\MusicNote

SmileIconAfter Class One Day (Rare #225)

Rin: I love the time after class. You don't have to study, and can see your friends. MusicNote

Rin: µ's practice is fun, but I also really like the lazy time before practice starts.

Rin: Usually. I mostly just ask Hanayo how many rice balls she's had, and do strange poses with Nico.

Rin: Oh, I know! I almost forgot about Nico! I've been looking for her, but can't find her. Exclaimationpoint

Rin: She sometimes tells bad jokes and also acts like a comedian.

Rin: But she's surprisingly grounded, and helps me and the other like a good student.

Rin: Things just aren't right without her. I'm going to go looking again.

Rin: If you see Nico, be sure to tell me! MusicNote

SmileIconWhat I Like (Rare #288)

Rin: My likes would be moving around!!

Rin: I like dancing, but I really like zoom running, and boing jumping.

Rin: You don't know what zoom and boing mean?? Those are my names for sprints and hurdles.

Rin: What? Aren't I bad at hurdles?

Rin: Of course I fall sometimes, but I don't have time to regret or be sad. I just get up without thinking and dash off!

Rin: When I'm jumping hurdles on a track, all I can hear is my breath going "gasp, gasp". My head is completely clear of thoughts. Neat, huh??

Rin: It's like my body answers the call to run without thinking! It's refreshing, and feels great.

Rin: So when my head feels all messy and confused, I go running alone with a zoom!

Rin: It clears up confusion, and it's even more fun when you're not confused. Running is great!

Rin: Come running with me sometimes, I'll blow the started whistle for you to help out!

SmileIconSmall Miracles (Rare #302)

Rin: Small miracle? Of course I know a few!

Rin: Sometimes the ramen shop adds extra topping for me, so that's mine. MusicNote

Rin: Huh? That doesn't count? QuestionMark

Rin: I'm pretty sure it should, though.

Rin: Then what about calling it a small miracle that I'm a school idol?

Rin: It's weird that someone like me could make it as one, right?

Rin: I'm always running around outside without thinking, so it seems pretty miraculous to me.

Rin: Hehe, a miracle caused by everyone in µ's and the people who cheered me on.

CoolIconWinter Means... (Rare #338)

Rin: Good morning! I wanted to hang out today, so I dropped by. You won't refuse because of the cold, will you? MusicNote

Rin: Hehe, good! Recently, Nozomi told me I should pay my respects to the gods, so we're heading to the shrine first.

Rin: It's cold, but I think the air tastes best when it's cold. It's not a food, though.

Rin: Chomp. Chew chew... yeah, it tastes better somehow.

Rin: Hey, want to play rock-paper-scissors on the stairs on the way? Whoever gets to the top first wins! MusicNote

Rin: On three. One... two... three!

Rin: Hehe. Paper, I win! Up I go!

Rin: Round 2! One... two... three!

Rin: And scissors means I win again. Another few steps for me...

Rin: Huh? This is no good. I'm lonely when we're this far apart. Hurry up and win and catch up with me!

SmileIconA Wish for the Future (Rare #434)

Rin: A wish for the future, huh?

Rin: Hmm... Nothing really comes to mind, to be honest.

Rin: Oh, I know! I wanna be the coolest adult in the world! How's that? Exclaimationpoint

Rin: An adult who works her tail off, studies super-hard, and still has time to dance like crazy!

Rin: I mean, I can't picture what that'd be like, but wouldn't it be cool?

Rin: I'd be all cool and mature. You'd like to see that too, wouldn't you? MusicNote

Rin: You would... but you;re afraid I'd lose all my best qualities? QuestionMark

Rin: Really? I think cool adult Rin has a lot of great qualities too.

Rin: Ah, whatever. Enough talk, I'm starving!

Ring: Let's change things up and get burgers instead of ramen today! C'mon! MusicNote

PureIconLast Night's Dream (Rare #498)

Rin: What'd I dream about last night?

Rin: Uhh, hmm. It was really awesome! I just... can't remember what it was about...

Rin: Let me think... Just a second.

Rin: Hrr, nope, I can't remember a thing. BlueLines

Rin: This stinks. I know it was a really good one, too.

Rin: It's so easy to remember what I was dreaming about the seconds I wake up, but by the time I get out of bed I've already forgotten it.

Rin: Maybe I should write them down before I get up. Oh, but I bet I'll forget to do that, too.

Rin: What if I bring a notepad with me into my dream? QuestionMark

Rin: If I think about pens and paper as I'm going to sleep, will they be there is my dreams?

Rin: Hey, I could write a whole dream newspaper. Reporter Rin's Dream Journal! I'll give it a shot tonight. MusicNote

SmileIconIf I Could Do More (Rare #614)

Rin: Huh? What do I wanna do more of?

Rin: Umm... What would you think if I said I wanted to eat ramen?

Rin: Didn't think so... Okay, you promise not to tell anyone? Ellipses

Rin: To be honest... I want to be more school idol-ish.

Rin: Oh come on, when you think of a school idol, I'm the last person that should come to mind. I mean, what do you think of me?

Rin: School idols are supposed to be cute and cuddly. They should be, like, good cooks. Not someone who spends all day running down the halls at top speed.

Rin: I wish I could be a school idol like Hanayo. That's a steep hill to climb, though.

Rin: I'm not gonna give up, though! Little by little I'll work on becoming a cuter, better idol. *Giggle* Don't tell anyone, okay? I'd be so embarrassed. MusicNote

SmileIconGroup Detour (Rare #668)

Rin: Yummy, yummy... This is so good! Another helping of noodles, please!

Rin: Hanayo and I are having ramen together today! I got soy sauce ramen with minced meat. I think it tastes best if you slurp everything up in one bite!

Rin: It's pretty neat how there's only one word for ramen, yet depending on the broth and the ingredients, you can have a million different KINDS of ramen.

Rin: Sometimes people call me out on going to ramen shops all alone, but lately I've managed to convince Hanayo and Nico to join me.

Rin: Ramen tastes good when you're alone, but it's three times as yummy with a group of three!

Rin: Like, I'll say something's tasty, then Hanayo and Nico will echo me!

Rin: When that happens my heart gets all light and fluttery. It makes me feel overjoyed!

Rin: *Giggle* I guess it doesn't take much to make me happy, huh? But on the other hand, it means I get to feel this same joy every day!

CoolIconA Different Me (Rare #683)

Rin: Huh? A different side of myself? I dunno... I can't really think of any.

Rin: I am who I am! Bubbly, energetic, raring to go! Every day, everywhere! MusicNote

Rin: Oh. You know what? I think since I joined µ's, the every day part has changed a little.

Rin: Before µ's I'd always be running all over the place, I had trouble studying... Hanayo and I were still best friends, but...

Rin: Since I joined µ's, I spend every day thinking about being a school idol. I love µ's and I love everyone in it! MusicNote

Rin: I mean, I get to wear adorable outfits and sing and dance to my heart's content. I think I'm staring to fit the role a little better!

Rin: Oh, but I still love Hanayo to death! That's one thing that hasn't changed. Exclaimationpoint

Rin: Hee hee hee... Now I'm blushing. HeartBubble

PureIconShining So Bright (Rare #753)

Rin: Name something I like that's shiny?

Rin: You mean like hairpins and stuff? I'm not really into shiny things. QuestionMark

Rin: Oh, I know! I love how the stars shine at night. Exclaimationpoint

Rin: My last name, Hoshizora, means starry sky. Ever since I was a little kid, I've spent lots of time stargazing.

Rin: Whenever I'd screw up at school, or fail somehow, or when things weren't just going my way, I'd look to the sky.

Rin: Watching all the different stars twinkling and sparkling always makes me feel worked up and excited inside.

Rin: I don't know much about the different kinds of stars, but I do know that all starlight is beautiful, and it never fails to cheer me up.

Rin: Actually, Maki's teaching me about the constellations! I probably won't get it all the first time, though. I'd be so happy if you'd try to learn some of it for me! MusicNote

CoolIconWhen It's Snowy! (Rare #805)

Rin: Snow! The roof's all covered in a big white blanket! There's not even a single footprint yet. Fresh snow is so exciting, isn't it?!

Rin: I can't stand it anymore. Whee! Look, now there's a Rin-shaped hole in the snow! HeartBubble

Rin: *Giggle* No, I'm not cold. The sight of a fresh blanket of snow just makes me want to jump right in!

Rin: Oh, did I have snow on my face? Thanks for wiping it off. Exclaimationpoint

Rin: Hey, hey, hey! Why don't you jump in, too? We'll do a synchronized snow-dive!

Rin: Come on, look at how much it's already piled up. It's be such a waste to just shovel it all aside. MusicNote

Rin: we should play as much as we can before anyone comes by to shovel. With all this snow, we can make anything we want!

Rin: What should we make first? Oh, what if we make snowmen of everybody in µ's? Wouldn't that be fun?

Rin: As long as we get the hairstyles right, I bet everyone will recognize themselves. Like Nico's ponytails... There, how's that? MusicNote

Rin: Hey, is that supposed to be me? Wow, that's incredible. It's a perfect likeness! You're a genius snow sculptor! Exclaimationpoint

SmileIconAffable Adulation (Ultra Rare #872)

Rin: Hey, I'm on the way! Thanks for coming to get me.

Rin: Oh, before I go to rehearsal, can you check my costume? I'm not used to wearing dresses, so I'd feel a lot better if I had another set of eyes look me over.

Rin: Hey, even I fret about things sometimes! I haven't worn something this pretty in a long time, so I'm worried it's not a good look for me. Sweatdrop

Rin: Well, what'cha think? Does it suit me?

Rin: Hee, hee, hee. If you say it does, that's good enough for me! You always know just what to say... And I really appreciate that! MusicNote

Rin: Huh? What do yellow roses mean? I have no idea... If you know, I'm all ears! QuestionMark

Rin: It means "everything about you is cute"? Huh?! Oh geez, don't say it's the perfect flower for me! Now I'm all flustered! Exclaimationpoint

Rin: I'm turning beet red... Cute... I'm still not used to people calling me that. But, umm... Thanks for always saying such nice things to me. I-I gotta go!

PureIconAccessory First-Timer (Ultra Rare #881)

Rin: So cute! This accessory-making stuff's totally adorable!

Rin: Our next costume have lots and lots of accessories, so I'm helping make them. We're gonna hang them on our skirts, or waists... pretty much everywhere!

Rin: It's gonna be so cute when they jingle as we dance. They're not very loud, though. It's kinda sad that not everyone in the audience will be able to hear them. MusicNote

Rin: Hmm? Oh, are you gonna help, too? Thanks! These are for making bracelets. You just gotta string the beads. Simple, right?

Rin: I'm not usually good at stuff that requires a lot of dexterity. But for some reason, when it's for µ's, I work on it forever without ever getting fed up.

Rin: See? Pretty good, right? Kotori's an amazing teacher, so everyone's been able to do a great job. MusicNote

Rin: Still, I'm pretty slow, so I'm staying behind to finish my part. *Giggle* Aren't I a dedicated worker?

Rin: This is such hard work. I can't believe that Kotori usually does it all by herself, on top of doing dance practice just as much as the rest of us. Sweatdrop

Rin: I wonder if she gets overwhelmed sometimes... I can't use a sewing machine, but there's gotta be a way for me to help her more.

Rin: Oops, all this talking is distracting me from my job! Focus, Rin! Focus! Exclaimationpoint
