- "Are you ready to see Mikuru's Miracle?"
– Mikuru's catchphrase
Mikuru Natsuki (夏樹みくる Natsuki Mikuru) is one of the newest main characters in Season 2 of the Aikatsu! series. She partnered with Mizuki Kanzaki, forming the duo unit WM that is now disbanded. Her primary brand is Vivid Kiss.
Mikuru is a fair-skinned girl with red and purple dual-colored eyes. She has sandy blonde hair that is commonly styled into two half-pigtails which are held up with a yellow heart barrette on the left and blue star barrette on the right. Sometimes her hair is in a ponytail and held with a single barrette instead. She has noticeable streaks of pink through her hair.
Mikuru is a sweet girl who is very energetic and well-meaning. She is very bright and loves flowers, to the point where she frequently compares them with other things. She also has a talent with clothing. She is rather free-spirited and casts her miracle, Mikuru's Miracle, upon stage and in everyday life. Due to her expertise with flowers, she likes to compare everything with them.
Mikuru was born in Denmark, but moved to Japan when she was three years old. At some point, years later, she and her family started a gardening shop close to the sea.
Right Before the Cup
Mikuru appeared just right after the cup's announcement, debuted as Mizuki's partner in her new project, the idol unit WM. This drew her popularity larger and larger, now rivaling the popularity of Starlight School's gang of Ichigo Hoshimiya and Dream Academy's Seira Otoshiro and others.Episode 79 - Yes! Best Partner
The Fated Meeting
In episode 81, Ichigo and Seira, curious about how Mizuki and Mikuru met and how did Mikuru "click" for Mizuki, decided to visit Moonlight Office and ask. After a brief introduction with Mikuru, the rising unit began to tell them how it all happened...
It all started when Mizuki was still a student of Starlight Academy. She was preparing for a concert, but was having difficulty choosing the coord she should wear. During her contemplating, Mikuru showed up delivering flowers. After she took notice of the cards, Mizuki explained to the gardener about how the coords were supposed to make her shine, but can only show sides of her that her fans have already seen. Mizuki then said that she wanted to change but couldn't. Mikuru then smiles after hearing the idol's predicament, and asks her if she would like to see Mikuru's Miracle, then proceed to prepare a Good Coord for her.
Afterwards, Mikuru watched Mizuki's concert and was amazed at how she could smile to so many people, which was a contrast to the one-on-one smiles she brought to the customers at her shop. She then felt like she wanted to do the same. Mizuki explained how Mikuru lit a light in her, and Mikuru stated that it feels like the ever-brightly shining moon came down to be at her side.
Natsuki (夏樹) Natsu (夏) means "summer" which may be a reference to her brand, Vivid Kiss, a west coast, summer-inspired brand. Ki (樹) means "tree." This is a reference to her being a gardener.
Mikuru (みくる) is an initial play on the word "miracle" (みらくる mirakuru) when written in hiragana. This is a reference to "Mikuru's Miracle."
