In the second season of the anime, she is a second-year student.
During Rimi's high-school entrance ceremony, she heard Kasumi's self-introduction that was filled with boundless optimism, and this sparked her interest in her. Though Rimi wanted to change her cowardly and shy personality, she had initially been unable to do anything about it.
At first, Rimi declined Kasumi's invitation to become a member of the band Poppin'Party because of her stage fright, but everything changed when she became inspired by Kasumi who sang on stage at Live House Space until Glitter*Green, who were late because of the weather, arrived. She eventually found her confidence to overcome her stage fright and managed to perform with Kasumi and Arisa. After the show, she finally decided to join Kasumi's band as its third member and bassist.
Rimi resembles her older sister, having the same black hair and red eyes. But while Yuri's eyes are sharper in shape, hers are downward slanted. Her short black hair is chin-length with sections of hair pulled back in a loop on the side of her head, while her bangs are straight-cut.
Rimi is a shy and reserved girl who admires her older sister and often gushes over her. She tends to compare herself to the others frequently, and wishes she could be more confident and be able to "speak up" more often. Rimi is cute and sweet-natured, and often blushes when flustered, but at times can be very determined and strong as well.
As Rimi used to live in the Kansai region, her Kansai dialect sometimes slips into her speech when she stumbles on her sentences or is very nervous; she is a bit embarrassed of this.
