Chiri Tsukikawa (月川 ちり Tsukikawa Chiri) is a character that appears in the start of Season 3, when Laala Manaka is put in charge of giving her a tour of PriPara and starting her Idol career.

Originally, Chiri was a Lovely-type who used Twinkle Ribbon. Later in the season, she is revealed to have switched her type and brand, and is now a Celeb-type using Dear Crown.



Chiri outside of PriPara

Chiri has a fair complexion and light purple eyes with a slant. She is younger than Laala and appears to be short, with her uniform being too big for her. She has long, straightened pale brown hair with bangs that appear messy with a part on each side and uneven forelocks, with the right side straightened and long, while the left is short and messy. She has a straightened cowlick that droops down over her bangs, and wears short straightened twin-tails.

In PriPara, she remains shorter than Laala but is shown to be taller than normal. Her hair is slightly lengthened and she gains a brown rabbit hair ornament.

Chiri gets angry and used Chiri Shanshan to summon the water dance.

Chiri is a gentle and somewhat shy young girl. She is easily excited and shows an interest in Idols. As a Celeb Idol, she is arrogant and demanding. Chiri gets embarassed when she is in her normal form because of the way she acts in Pripara, and it's the reason why she didn't want to go to Pripara at first because her body doesn't agree with her. But as she continues to go to Pripara with Non and Pepper, she has grown used to her personality and comes to accept it. Also, she is very sensitive to uncleaness both outside Pripara and inside.
