Mizuki Kanzaki (神崎 美月 Kanzaki Mizuki?) is one of the main characters in the Aikatsu! arcade games and the corresponding anime adaption. She is a former student of Starlight Academy. She was also the founder and the leader of Tristar.
Mizuki was the top student at Starlight Academy, priding herself on her ability and as well being the top idol. Mizuki was the number one idol and the role-model of all idols, thus being admired by just about everyone. She started off as an elementary model then mysteriously disappeared from the public for a whole year then came back without warning, taking the idol world by storm as a top idol. During that time, she did intensive training and pushed herself to work her hardest due to her lack of ability. Mizuki doesn't show her hard-working side to many people and is thought of as a genius. She is highly idolized by Ichigo and inspired her to work even harder. As of Episode 28, she has her own brand designed after her image, Love Queen.
In Episode 03 it reveals that Mizuki started her career as an idol during her fourth year in elementary school, staring as a child model for young children, then she she spent a year without a public appearance.

In Chance & Try☆ of the anime, she announced that she was selecting two members for her new idol unit, Tristar, where she was the first member. In the end, she selected Kaede Ichinose and Ran Shibuki as the second and third members respectively. However, in Head for the Sun, Ran Shibuki quit Tristar to join Ichigo and Aoi's unit, Soleil. In Ran's place, Mizuki selected Yurika Tōdō as the third member of Tristar. Finally, on Go get'em Soleil!, both the units were temporarily merged into STAR☆ANIS for their summer tour. The STAR☆ANIS group had their respective live debut in The Summer-Colored Miracle☆.
In Episode 46 that she was inspired to become an idol after seeing Masquerade performing. Also when she was a fashion model during her elementary years, Mizuki was very concerned and worried about everything she did. So much that she considered quitting the entertainment world all together. But when someone from her agency showed her footage of their first concert, she was immediately hooked by their beautiful smiles and passion. However she wondered why she had been so moved by their performance, even days after seeing this. She then learned about Johnny Bepp, who had done Masquerades choreography. Since then, she followed him everywhere to ask for lessons. Day after day she kept begging, until he eventually gave in. That was how her secret sessions begun and she used the entire year training for the idol world. At first she was very serious, but he also taught her about smiling at all times and expressing herself with her entire body, not just her face.
