Sonata Shinonome is one of the main characters in the AKB0048 series and the younger sister of Kanata Shinonome . Along with her sister, she is also one of the AKB0048's trainees.


Sonata has straight, shoulder length orange-yellow hair with a small section of it tied into one ponytail on each side and has light orange eyes. She wears a small black hat with bunny ears on the side of her head. In her pre-trainee outfit, she wears a pink hoodie with bunny ears, a white dress with black and blue ruffles, and a pair of black lace-up shoes. Like all the AKB0048's trainees, she has a heart-shaped lining in her hair and eyes.


Sonata is an excitable, immature girl, like most children. She has a passion for adventure and is determined to join AKB0048 , even if she did fail the first audition. At times, she speaks in the third person, though not always. She seems to enjoy giving people nicknames, calling Suzuko 'Linda', Makoto 'Grumbly', Chieri 'Meanyface', Megumi   'Nasty', and Yuka 'Demon'. She also has a tendency to say works in pig-latin sometimes such as oobs-bay.

  • She should have been banned from the AKB0048 audtions due to her age, but when Tsubasa sees her determination of joining AKB0048, she allows her to participate in the auditions.

  • In episode 4, Sonata reveals that she voted for herself, however, members are not supposed to vote for each other, let alone themselves.
