Kanako Kaneko is the main character to the (fanmade) idol series, KiraKira Idol Night.She is the replacement idol for her older deceased sister, Kaoru Kaneko.
Kanako's personality is a bit different than her older sister (well, they shared the same personalities when Kaoru was younger), as she is not good at making decisions. She is very kind, and loves to make her friends and family happy.
Kirei Omedeto - Kanako's very best friend. Although Kanako is older than Kirei, she looks as Kirei as if she is her little sister.
Megumi Chiisana - Had met Megumi when they were in middle school, and they both care about each other very much, as Megumi is Kanako's very best friend as well.
Kaoru Kaneko - Is Kanako's deceased older sister. Although Kaoru is dead, and Kanako was devastated about her death, Kanako tries her best to stay strong, as that is what Kaoru had told her before she died.
While not dressed in idol outfits, Kanako has long, platinum blonde hair, with her signature yellow headband.
