Ikuta Erika (生田絵梨花) is a Japanese singer from the idol group Nogizaka46. Akimoto Yasushi stated that her aura reminded him of Acchan from AKB48, and that he had the idea to put Ikuta in the center position. However, Akimoto-sensei decided not to, because it would be too similar to how become AKB48 started.

Ikuta Erika was one of the 36 selected among the 56 final participant auditioned for the 1st Generation Members. Later on she was chosen as one of the Shichi Fukujin (七福神 - 7 Deities of Good Luck) on Nogizaka46's 1st Single, Guru Guru Curtain. On Nogizaka46's 2nd Single, Oide Shampoo, Ikuta Erika was chosen as one of the Senbatsu Members. She then once again was chosen as the Shichi Fukujin on Nogizaka46's 3rd Single, Hashire! Bycicle. For the 4th single, Seifuku no Mannequin, Ikuta Erika was also chosen but it was changed into Hachi Fukujin (八福神 - 8 Deities of Good Luck).
