Physical AppearanceEdit

Nyami is a pale creamy-white cat girl with big pupil-less dark green eyes. She has long Sangria-brown hair worn in thin, long braided pigtails and straight cut bangs. She has a tiny brown oval nose and while lacking a tail, she has small pointed cat ears.

Usually Nyami dresses like Mimi and will wear anything from dresses to T-shirts and jeans. 


A chatty girl who seeks fun times and thrills. She loves to spend time with her best friend Mimi, due to their shared interests. They can be found usually in the same places and when they are not together, you can bet they spend most of the time thinking of the other. They perform on Television and live together in the Pop'n House. 

Nyami is often given the leaderly role and can often be found put in charge of their activities or anything involving some sort of organization - like finding teammates for activities or supporting their Soccer Team to play their best. She also shows some tomboy-tendencies and often gains Male-oriented roles compared to Mimi's own. However, she has her own girly behavior and seems to enjoy when the role is switched.

Always cheerful, she spends time listening to the Pop'n Music and is looking for small ways of expressing her own indivisuality. Such as the time she made a cheerful fuss over their outfits and picked a Border Shirt all on her own.
