Kaguya Shirayuri (白百合かぐや) is a main character of the Aikatsu Friends! series. As of the second season, she is a student of the idol division at Star Harmony Academy, having previously attended Moonlit Night Academy, and is the younger twin sister of Sakuya Shirayuri. Kaguya is a cool-type idol whose preferred brand is Moon Maiden. Along with Sakuya Shirayuri, the two are a part of Reflect Moon.
Kaguya resembles Sakuya, having the same, magenta downward angled eyes and wavy hairstyle. The key differences being that she wears purple ribbons on each side of her head, and the color is opposite of Sakuya's, being midnight blue on top with an ombre of silvery-blue from the neck down.
As of Season 2, Kaguya now wears burgundy ribbons on each side of her head.
When she was a kindergartener, Kaguya adapted the style of high pigtails held up with purple ribbons, in which shifted its height to a regular pigtail at around elementary school, held up with a similar ribbon with lavender frills, in which the design has been carried on and adapted to the current ribbons that Kaguya often wears.
- Kaguya's elder twin sister whom she admires greatly. Kaguya has always tried to follow in her sister's footsteps but feels terrible because she cannot become the prodigy like her sister. But despite that, knowing that Sakuya was and would always be with her lets Kaguya realize the love and warmth that the two sisters share.
- Mushirō is Kaguya and Sakuya's manager.
Shirayuri (白百合) means white lily.

- "That's because the most brilliant idol is no other than Sakuya onee-sama!"
– Kaguya Shirayuri
- "What are you talking about? One plus one is obviously two. In what universe could it possibly be infinity? You're speaking nonsense. Go back to arithmetic class and start your education over. Dismissed."
– Kaguya to Aine
- "Unlike you, perfect in everything you tried, I was perpetually mired in mediocrity. No matter how much effort I put in I couldn't be like you. I hated it."
– Kaguya to Sakuya
- "It was then where I remembered: the fact that I never wanted to lose the warmth from you again."
– Kaguya to Sakuya
- "You and I alone are fragments. Alternatively, we are two halves of the moon. When we gather, we can light the stage with our radiant light and become a full moon."
– Kaguya to Sakuya
- "If I can shine going solo, I should be able to elevate Onee-sama to a radiance far beyond that of a full moon."
– Kaguya to Mio
