"Festival night! Natsuiro Matsuri is here!"
A rookie on the Cheerleading Team. Cheerful and affectionate, her pleasant attitude means she gets along with everyone. She has a lot of friends, and loves festivals and events.
Matsuri is an energetic, expressive, and sometimes chaotic cheerleader girl who is bubbly as a festival. She is known for certain viral moments like wearing band-aids to school instead of bras, posting her own take of a popular internet copypasta video on Shirakami Fubuki's Twitter, and groping other members off-camera (including Hoshimachi Suisei, Shirogane Noel, Murasaki Shion and Yukihana Lamy, among others). Her cheerful attitude makes her popular among her peers and is looked up upon by her juniors. She has high girl-power, making her a good wife material noted by other hololive members.
However, underneath her rowdy and tomboyish exterior, Matsuri is actually an emotionally intelligent, sensitive, sweet, yet serious, and hardworking young girl. Who can speak frankly and maturely about a variety of topics. She will sometimes host audio only streams right before she goes to sleep or while in the bath and simply talk to her viewers about her life and her inner thoughts.
