Tokyo Street PriPara
Arata Futaba is the main protagonist of Pripara: Mirai no Stories' first and third seasons, as well as Tokyo Street PriPara. She is a transfer student at Paprika Private Academy after her previous school, Tomadai Academy, was forced to shut down due to the lack of students enrolling. Laala later introduces her to the world of PriPara after recieving her first PriTicket. She is a Star type idol and her primary brand is Cross Wingz. She is the leader of Mirai☆Catch!. At the end of Season 1, she disappears, but at the beginning of Season 3, she finally returns.
During the events of Tokyo Street PriPara, she transfers to Topyo, Shipuya, (the PriPara version of the real-life Tokyo, Shibuya ) where it is learned that she retired until a certain bet got her to come back to PriPara. She becomes a multi-typed Idol during the events of the side story and uses Xros UNIVERSE, a brand created for that sole purpose.
Arata is the new transfer student from Tomadoi Academy. She was given a PriTicket on her first day at her new school, until Headmistress Gloria confiscated it for no reason. However, she was given another PriTicket, but it was white. Laala pulls her in a world that made her change, for good.

She is slightly an airhead, but is confident that she can pass any challenge. When around boys, (except her brother and father) she acts like a tsundere and easily stutters. Sometimes she acts kinda straightforward sometimes.
