- Started taking classical ballet lessons at age three.
- Her grandmother brought her to see many Takarazuka shows from a young age and so she always vaguely wanted to join. After seeing the 2006 Flower Troupe production of Phantom, she was very moved by the performance and decided she wanted to sit the exam for the Takarazuka Music School.
- The nickname Maitii was given to her by her classmate Kizuki Yuuma during their TMS days.
- Graduated third of the 95th class.
- Won the 2016 Rookie of the Year (Shinjin-shou) award – as did Towaki Sea and Hoshikaze Madoka.
- During Ranju Tomu's Top Star run, she won an arm-wrestling competition held among the Flower Troupe members.
- Featured in New Generation III and in the 2017 Rising Star Guide.
