An employee at the Riko Riko café, Nishigiki is a lively and cheerful character. Furthermore, she oversees the signboard for customers’ unusual requests.

From the trailer, Nishigiki appears to have a bright and adventurous personality. She seems to take on unexpected events with a smile and a positive approach.
