Fumi is described to be a strong and tough girl who is often serious, though she is sometimes offensive, in contrast to her younger sister. she can struggle to express herself off-stage, and often gets riled up when teased by others, especially Ichie.
Fumi is hardworking and often leads the rehearsals with the other Rinmeikan stage girls. She is uncompromising and pushes the other stage girls to be better, but her actions come from a desire to see them shine on stage.
Fumi is the type of person who wants to achieve things by her own strength, rarely asking for help. She will not accept a win if she knows it's undeserved and will always strive to be better through hard work. In contrast to this, Fumi is a caring person and even if she won't admit it, she worries about her friends. Her tendency to nitpick at things and her general abilities in everything that has to do with daily life, make her seem like a "mom friend". Her need to care for others stems from her childhood and her role as an older sister. Growing up she always had to care for Shiori, who more often than not, was bedridden.
It is known that up until her transferral to Rinmeikan in her second year of highschool, Fumi attended Siegfeld Institute of Music. There she was one of the top 5 students and had earned herself the title of "Frau Jade", however she was one upped by Akira Yukishiro and was unable to rank higher and become 'king' as "Frau Platin". During her time at Siegfeld Fumi is said to have been arrogant and full of herself, this came as a result of her faith in her skills and the things she had accomplished, however this arrogance caused her to slowly lose herself when rumours started spreading about her little sister's abilities. It was said that she was so good that she could surpass Fumi at any moment. Unable to ignore the negative emotions that grew in her, Fumi ended up wishing ill on her sister and at the same time reaching her breaking point. All of this lead to her failing an important show and bringing shame to herself. It is said through her own words, that most students were happy to see her fall as they were unhappy with her arrogance. Her little sister was the only one willing to stay by her side, however Fumi who was unable to look her in the eyes anymore made the decision to leave her title and Siegfeld behind and abandon the stage entirely.
Before moving to Rinmeikan, she and Akira studied together at Siegfeld as first years. Like Akira, Fumi is very strict and has a very serious attitude. Akira had a lot of high expectations of Fumi. However, after a disastrous performance in the final exam of the first year, Fumi suffered serious trauma and decided to quit performing. Akira, in her story with Shiori, regrets her fault of not being able to keep Fumi in the school.
The two meet again during the Stranded Stage Girls event, where the two fight because of Akira's lack of trust in Fumi. Akira acknowledges that she knew about Fumi's suffering during her time as an Edel, but says she was unable to overcome her role as Frau Platin to reach out and help her properly. After the fight, Akira congratulates Fumi on returning to the stage.
Michiru was the first to persuade Fumi to join the performance department as an Edel. Unlike Akira, she still has faith in Fumi even after Fumi departed from the school.
Fumi's younger sister. In her young age, she took care of her younger sister because of Shiori's physical sickness. Fumi truly cared for her during that time and shared a wish to perform on stage together, but her closeness to Shiori decreased mysteriously as she got older, especially after she departs from Siegfeld and cuts off all contact with Shiori. Akira confesses to Shiori that her fault had led Fumi to suffer a disastrous performance in the first year's final stage.
The two reconnect During Zeus' Decision, but Fumi struggles to reach out to Shiori properly until Venus & Cupid - Angelic Thread of Love, when Yachiyo pushes her to watch a performance of Shiori's. During the event, Fumi expresses how proud she is of Shiori's performance, and apologizes for not reaching out to her first.
Although very annoyed with Ichie, Fumi is impressed and touched by Ichie's determination to recruit her to Rinmeikan Performance Department. Ichie is the reason why Fumi decides to once again perform in bigger stage. The two banter frequently, and Fumi is often victim to Ichie's pranks.
Tamao is the first to convince Fumi to join and participate in the Performance Department as she needs to protect it from being closed down. Although Tamao doesn't expect Fumi to join the Performance Department, Fumi is impressed with her resilience and transfers in. Fumi says that Tamao's dedication to the stage is what made her a Stage Girl again. She makes Tamao a meal made with ponzu as a gift on White Day as a respect.

- The official English translation of Fumi's revue introduction does not capture her reference to Shiori. Shiori's name (栞) means "bookmark", and here she says "I insert a bookmark(shiori) into the days that have passed, and go to an endless stage on this new day". Moreover, the last line officially translated as "To a new life, to a new stage!" is literally "I will sing, a dream of life!", which references her surname, 夢大路 (Yumeoji), as 夢 (yume) means "dream". Shiori's revue introduction references Fumi and their surname in a similar manner.
