Rie-Chan is a character in Pop'n Music. She can often be found with her best friend, Sanae-chan.
Rie-chan is a fair-skinned girl with small black eyes. She has medium-length, curly-puffed hair that is light auburn.
Rie-chan is a feminine, kind teenager with a career in fashion. She is studying at a design school and as an eighteen year old she has many interests of a normal teen. Including collecting records (mainly british rock music of the 80s), shopping, and is smitten with a singer from SGI, Sugi-kun, whom she dated at some point.
As she is best friends with Sanae-chan, Rie-chan can usually be found with her. They share all of the same interests, but it can be implied that sometimes Sanae-chan has to encourage Rie-chan to follow through with things. Such as when she convinced her to take up the guitar, since they thought it would impress Sugi-kun.
Although she may be a teen, Rie-chan has a very active lifestyle and is up for anything. She has been working on her own fashion brand, Natural Bear, working at Pop'n Cafe baking cakes and other sweets, and even taking trips to Paris.
Rie-chan originally wore a White shirt with a single heart the front over a long sky blue shirt and a dark green skirt with red lines on it. Her shoes were simply maryjane shoes of red-raspberry to match her red beret and bracelet. Her socks are plain black.
Rie-chan's hair has become caramel-orange in color and gains a bit more shape. She wears a pair of red sunglasses on her head with pink lenses. Her outfit is composed of a fuchsia top worn under a loose white T-shirt with lime neck and heart on the corner. Her skirt is dark blue denim, while her shoes have become tall red and white boots worn with red socks that have stripes of white and black.
Rie-chan's hair appears to be somewhat smaller and more curled here, with a pale brown cowboy hat and white hair clip in it. She wears a white dress with pale pink sleeves and accenting, along with a red neckerchief and red cowboy boots with pale brown detail.
In an alternate picture, Rie-chan was shown wearing a pale pink top with white skirt, below the knee socks in black, and tall brown boots. Over the outfit was a pale beige jacket with pale cream fur trim. She did not wear her cowboy hat with this look.
Here, Rie-chan's hair and eyes have become a rusted-brown color. She wears a raspberry beret on her head. Her outfit is composed of a pale pink dress inspired by a girl school uniform, with the collar, accenting, and heart image a mauve color. Under the dress she has on a dark blue, long sleeved shirt. Her socks are still black, while she gains beige clogs.
For her beta design, Rie-chan wore a light pink sweater with white sleeves and a small heart depicted on the center. Along with a pair of dark blue short-shorts, brown boots, and a dark hairclip.
Rie-chan's hair has returned to a burnt-orange color while her eyes are back to black. She wears a hot pink Hoodie with two bright blue stripes on both arms and pocket, and a white heart on the side. Her denim skirt has fringe lining the bottom, while her shoes consist of purple flats with red bottom. On her head is a pair of pink and black earmuffs with red strap.
For her alternate color, Rie-chan's hair is blonde while her eyes are dark blue. Her hoodie is now white, while the heart on the corner has become pink. Her skirt is a bright sapphire in color, while the socks have become azure-blue and shoes white with tan-brown bottoms. Her earmufs are blue and white-themed.
With her hair somewhat puffy again, Rie-chan has began to wear it with a red hair bow. Her outfit consists of a light blue jacket with buttons and frilly lining, while her skirt is a two layer with white on the bottom and diagonal lines on it. A pink and white skirt portion is on top of this layer. Her shoes are tall red boots.
Rie-chan's skin appears to be slightly tanned. She wears a white and red striped shirt with a pink scarf around her neck, a gray pleat skirt, black knee socks, and red flats with light brown underneath. On her head is a dark blue beret.
Rie-chan wears part of her hair back with yellow clips and a white cloth with fuchsia lining. Her uniform is composed of a white top with writing on it, a fuchsia collar, and fuchsia sleeves. Her skirt is multiple colors of blue with fuchsia accenting. Around her waist is a khaki-tan apron with a single line of red and yellow. Her pantyhose are gray, while she's gone back to wearing her red maryjane shoes.
Here Rie-chan has began to expiriment with her hair. She has pulled it up into a pair of fluffy pigtails held by a white clip. Her bangs remain the same and over her eyes are a pair of translucent yellow lense glasses. Her outfit is a red sleeveless dress with white collar and bottom piping. She also has blue themed pants/leggings and gray and white sneakers. She carries a small white purse witha pink flower depicted on it.
Rie-chan keeps her hair pulled into a fluffy ponytail, now held by a dark fuchsia clip. She wears a top vaguely similar to her original shirts, one that is white on top of a lime green, long-sleeved shirt with a matching R (for the word Respect) on the side of the chest. She has on a pair of short brown shorts and tall red and white sneaker-styled boots. Around her neck is a fuchia cloth.
