Karen Kamishiro Autograph

Karen Kamishiro (神城カレン) is a character in the Aikatsu on Parade! series and was one of the main characters of the first and second season of the Aikatsu Friends! series. She is a graduate of Star Harmony Academy. Karen is a cute-type idol whose preferred brand is Classical Ange. Along with Mirai Asuka, the two are a part of Love Me Tear.



Karen has long flowing golden-blonde hair worn loosely with a thick, fanned out nose-length ponytail held by a scrunchie with a large cherry bow. Her thick bangs have a small part on the left and a few loosely curled strands. Her eyes are light indigo. When she was a child, the section of hair that Karen let down had a larger volume and had two fanned out pigtails held by red ribbons instead of her current single ponytail.

When she was in Star Harmony, Karen's long hair was tied into a high ponytail that held with a light pink bow.


Karen is known to be kinder than anyone else with a strong heart, described as a cute princess and an angel of love, as well as an idol full of smiles and overflowing with love. Her prodigal skills give her an overwhelming aura of elegance.


As a child born into a wealthy family, Karen had received special education and grew up into a lady who excels at whatever she does. With her professional ability in traditional Japanese refurbishment activities, Karen is known to be a Yamato Nadeshiko.

Karen, later on, paired up with Mirai to form Friends and later won the Diamond Friends Cup together.

Upon season 2, Karen embarked on a trip around the world to share love through Aikatsu!.

Kamishiro (神城) - Kami () means god and shiro () means castle.

Karen (カレン) is the Danish form of the feminine given name Katherine, meaning pure or clear. One of its many forms in kanji is 華蓮, meaning beauty or brilliant.


"The Aikatsu! way cannot be mastered in just one day!"

– Karen before her performance in season 1

"Shine bright, Mirai!"

– Karen to Mirai before their performance

"Aine and Mio hold a radiance far greater than any I have ever felt before from another Friends. Perhaps they're already up there, bringing warmth to the world from heights that can overcome any barrier— Right where we're trying to go."

– Karen to Mirai
