Kotobuki Kana (寿仮名; born on April 15, 1999) is a Japanese pop singer under the collective group DreamS and is the leader of Japanese girl group Dream Gakuen. She is a former 5th Generation DreamS Kenshuusei. She joined DreamS Kenshuusei on February 15, 2013 and graduated on June 1, 2013.
On February 15, Kotobuki, alongside 2 other girls, succesfully passed the 5th DreamS Kenshuusei auditions. They made up the 5th Generation DreamS Kenshusei.
On June 12, it was announced that Kotobuki, alongside 4 other girls, were to be the members of a newly formed DreamS group called "Dream Gakuen". It was to have the "revolving door" pattern, where they will graduate when they graduate high school, and new members will be added every time member(s) move to the highschool section. It was announced that Kotobuki was to be leader (or the first "Student Council President") since she was the oldest.
Kotobuki graduated the DreamS Kenshuusei program on June 13, 2013, making her the fastest Kenshuusei to debut (being only 2 months into the program).
She debuted as Dream Gakuen on June 16 with their first single, "Please Please Please!"
