Nejire competes in a beauty pageant with other U.A. Students. She wins the pageant.
The reasoning behind her loss in the previous year to Bibimi Kenranzaki as stated by Tamaki Amajiki is that she tried to compete with her in terms of flashiness which, as Tamaki put it, is much more of Kenranzaki's forte. However, Tamaki also states that she has her own impressive qualities that illustrate her beauty, which is evident in his description as Nejire being "a pure, graceful fairy."
An audience member describes her performance as "a magical dance in midair!". Another said that he "was completely drawn in!".
