Luca Ikaruga, an idol from THE iDOLM@STER Shiny Colors has recently seen a huge spike in popularity!
Who is Luca Ikaruga?
A solo idol who's become the talk of the town.
Hailed as a goddess by her cult following of troubled young girls, Luca Ikaruga boasts an intimidating fashion sense, a tongue that's as sharp as a blade, and an attitude not unlike some of the more rambunctious punk rock girls.
For reasons unknown, she's pretty hostile toward 283 Production.She was at one point a member of one of 283 Production's units, a duo that went by the name SHHis, alongside Mikoto Ageta.

Players could never act as her producer in the game, so we only got to know more about her personality through other idols. Even so, Luca has left her mark on the hearts of many producers through event stories and her sudden appearance as a surprise guest at the end of day two of the "Xmas Party -Silent night-" event held on December 19, 2021, where she performed a solo song.
On March 19, 2023, it was announced via her official Twitter account that she would be transferring into 283 Production in April of the same year, creating quite a stir among fans. Advertisements detailing her transfer were posted all over Shibuya and Shinjuku, attracting attention from people outside of the genre as well.
Of course, she's seen a huge surge in attention on pixiv too! We can't take our eyes off of Luca and wonder just where she'll go from here.
