Hikaru Usada

うさだヒカル, Rabi~en~Rose (ラ・ビ・アン・ローズ)
Birthday:Aug 30
Usada or RabienRose is revealed to the viewer to be Dejiko039s rival. Her nickname may be a play on a number of things. quotRabienRosequot may be a play on the common French saying quotLa Vie en Rosequot which means quotlife in rosepinkquot. The Japanese expression quotspend a life in rosepinkquot means to spend a life without any worries. quotRabiquot which resembles the English word quotrabbit.quot replaced quotLa viequot to form a pun to mean quotRabbit in life without worriesquot which suggests her personality. Her original name is Hikaru Usada which resembles Hikaru Utada best known in the West for her theme songs for the Kingdom Hearts series but that was officially commented as a mere coincidence since the story and names were decided before Hikaru Utada039s debut in Japan. Her quotUsadaquot surname also is a pun as the quotUsaquot part is a shortening of the word quotusagiquot which means quotrabbitquot in Japanese. In the original anime she is seen as a normal girl who uses dice to transform into her bunnygirl outfit: a pink white and red dress with large white rabbit ears and a large round cotton tail. Her parents left her to live on her own in an attempt to help her become an idol. RabienRose does not end her sentences with a rabbit sound typically pyo in anime and is the only character with kemonomimi animal traits in the Di Gi Charat franchise not to do so. She is very competitive and always is trying to start something with Dejiko. In some of the manga stories however it is shown tthat she really just wants to be her friend and this is hinted at in various ways often ending in a comedic gesture.
