Mizuki Kanzaki (神崎美月) is a character in the Aikatsu on Parade! series and was one of the main characters in the first and second season of the Aikatsu! series. She is an idol of Moonlight Office. Mizuki is a sexy-type idol whose preferred brand is her self-created brand, Love Moonrise, formerly known as Love Queen.
Mizuki has grape-colored eyes and matching hair that reaches her thighs when styled in her default style - held up in an ice-blue and white striped headband.
Mizuki is calm, elegant and confident. As of the second half of season two, Mizuki is shown to be happier and more relaxed than in the previous season due to meeting Mikuru and no longer having to carry the burdens of idol-hood and being the top star alone.
Mizuki was a top idol and top student at Starlight School, thus being admired by just about everyone. Every year since she entered Starlight, she has been the reigning Starlight Queen.
When she was a fashion model during her primary school years, Mizuki's perfectionism drove her into considering quitting the entertainment world and entered hiatus. But when she was invited to a Masquerade concert, she was immediately hooked by their beautiful smiles and passion, wondering how she was so moved by their performance. Learning Johnny Bepp was Masquerade's choreographer, she followed him everywhere to ask for lessons until he eventually gave in. At first, Mizuki was very tense and anxious, but Johnny also taught her about smiling at all times and expressing herself with her entire body, not just her face.
In Episode 50, the last episode of season one, Mizuki left Starlight School to work as the background adviser of Dream Academy, and as of Episode 75, Mizuki has returned to the idol world with her new brand, Love Moonrise, and has started her own agency known as Moonlight Office.

Mikuru was amazed by Mizuki's performances, how she made everyone smile, and accepted Mizuki's offer to start the unit. The two are highly compatible and bring out the best in each other.
- Mizuki is Ichigo's senpai. She sees the immense potential in Ichigo and for that acts as a voice of guidance to her. Mizuki is often inspired by Ichigo and her friends due to how much they support each other and even after reuniting with them during the Koh-haku Aikatsu Gassen. When Mizuki was ready to quit the idol world, having fulfilled her goal to surpass Masquerade, it was Ichigo who had inspired Mizuki to continue on the path of idol hood and to climb to even higher heights.
- Mizuki's manager. Mizuki is respects her manager that has been there for her since the beginning, even when WM was created. There has been several occasions where it is evident the relationship they have is a mix of both a professional relationship and friendship, clearly when Mizuki gives Honoka Valentine chocolate as her way of saying thanks for being her manager. In Episode 45, Honoka pulls Mizuki away from her work promoting Tristar so she can relax with the members of STAR☆ANIS on her day off.
