"I'm going to do better, and be recognized."

Hidaka Saori (日高さおり?) is a character in the D4DJ franchise, and is a member of the group Merm4id.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Saori has short light purple colored hair, with her bangs almost reaching her shoulders, and greyish eyes.

Description[edit | edit source]

Saori started her DJ career in high school, and due to her hardworking nature, she's built up a certain level of technique. She decided to become a DJ after listening to a remix made by a person who worked at the club FROLIC. Her pessimistic thinking held her back from DJing actively, even as a university student. Rika forced her to join the unit, but has made up her mind to change her mentality and achieve her goals.[2] She is the one who always stops Rika and Marika's antics from getting out of hand (e.g. Saori scolding them for doting Saki too much).

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Hidaka (日高) can be split into two parts. Hi (日), meaning sun or day, and Daka (高) meaning tall or expensive.

Saori (さおり) is a festival to welcome the gods when the rice planting season begins.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Izumo Saki[edit | edit source]

Saori seems very protective toward Saki since she is the only first-year student in Photon Maiden.

Tsukimiyama Nagisa[edit | edit source]

Nagisa and Saori were classmates in high school, though they didn't keep in touch after graduation. However after meeting again in the hot springs event, they became closer and started hanging out more.

Miyake Aoi[edit | edit source]

According to her introduction, Saori has seen a DJ play preformed by Aoi before and has talked with her in the past, however she believes that Aoi wouldn’t remember someone like her.

Sakurada Miyu[edit | edit source]

According to D4DJ's Correlation Diagram[3], Saori is Miyu's private tutor. Based on an Area Conversation between them, Saori teases Miyu by treating her like a princess, much to her chagrin.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Saori claims she dislikes cilantro because she is "jealous of how it stands out", revealing the extent of her own inferiority complex.[4]
