Hotaru is one of the characters from Pop'n Stage.


Because she is a top star from the famous theater company, she's always busy for the performance preparations. Her energetic singing voice has many fans, even though the company sold out of tickets immediately.


Hotaru's main appearance is a peach-skinned girl with light periwinkle eyes and brown hair with a long and wavy hairstyle. On her head is a large baby-blue barrette. She wears a red sweater and a long blue skirt with a knee length. Over-neath her skirt is an apron, and Hotaru wears tan-colored boots.

In her 2P color palette, Hotaru's recolor is that her eye color is the same. However, Hotaru's hair color changes to a cerulean color and her hat consists of red and light pink colors. Hotaru's sweater and skirt are indigo while her boots are colored as maroon.


Hotaru (ホタル?)-Hotaru's name translates to "firefly".


  • Both Hotaru and Clara are the fifth set of characters who mimic one-another or appear as someone else; however, Hotaru is given with different animations and a different attire in Pop'n Music 5.
    • It is very indeterminate and unknown that Clara have Hotaru's original color palette, an extra color palette (not like the 3P palette) in Musical.
