Arisugawa Mikoto is one of candidates fro AKB0048's 155th Generation.
Mikoto has black hair that is slightly shorter than shoulder length. Her eyes are brown and like other members she has heart-shaped shine in them. Outside performing she usually wears t-shirts and trousers, she is not very found of skirts, dresses of frilly clothing.
Mikoto is hardworking girl who tries to be nice to others but often fails because she gets angry quickly. She is very stubborn and defensive of her opinion and hates to admit it when she is wrong. She can hold grudge for quite long and if someone makes her angry she won't hesitate to tell that person that even if she hurts their feelings. However, even though she might seem mean when people first get to know her she is actually quite kind and caring for others and really values teamwork. She hates unfair things and always defends and helps people in trouble. While she usually seems very serious she actually loves to have fun and has some unusual habbits.
Life Before Joining 00
Mikoto grew up in poor part of Yumemachi the biggest city of planet Corrustar with her parents and older brother Hinata. Her family was barely able to surivive despite both of her parents working very hard. However despite that, Mikoto didn't considered her childhood to be sad as she had a very close bond with her family especially her brother and had some good friends. Her parents were big wota supporters and Mikoto and Hinara both grew up with AKB0048 despite living on a planet with very strict entertainment ban and both quickly became big fans of it. Mikoto wanted to become part of it when she is older but wasn't sure if she'll ever be able to take the auditions considering how dangerous listening to music is on Corrustar.
As Mikoto grew older she learned more about political situation on her planet. She found out that small elite that supports entertainment ban lives extravagant lives while others like her family can barely survive. Because of that she began to hold big hatred towards rich people who are ignorant of how hard life most of people on Corrustar have and support entertainment ban.
Situation in Yumemachi slowly became more and more tense with government realising there are hidden music clubs where people gather and even though her parents tried to keep her out it Mikoto quickly realised it. With both of her parents and now also brother in WOTA it was impossible not to.
Mikoto's life changed completely on April 25th SC0126. A big crowd of entertainment supporters gathered in hideout to watch Miyabi Honoka's succession and right after it was revealed that Kashita Miyagi was actually alive and she is succeeding to the hideout was attacked which resulted in many deaths and people getting hurt. Mikoto was able to get away unhurt but her brother died and her father was injured badly - he could no longer walk. Because of that Mikoto's hatred for DGTO, DES and rich elite became even bigger. The situation of her family was even harder after that as her father lost his job and everything fell on her mother.
When auditions for 155th geberation were announced Mikoto decided to take part of it for many reasons. It was what she wanted for long time, it would give her chance to fight against DES and also she believed that her parents would live easier if there was one person less they had to take care of - of course she only told her parents the first reason. They were worried about her but supported her decision knowing how much Mikoto always loved the group.
Mikoto is a big fan of 150th generation and believes they are very underrated.
