THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self-Introduction
According to her first Starlight Stage Memorial commu, Producer first met Aiko while on a stroll at a nearby park. When their eyes met, Aiko greeted Producer and asked if he was on a stroll as well. Aiko tells him that she often visits this park as it makes her feel pleasantly warm and predicts that they'll probably meet again. As she says her goodbyes and leaves, Producer asks her why she greeted him. Aiko is puzzled, as talking to every person she passes by is normal to her. Not only people, Aiko also greets cats and dogs that are walking around. Everyone that frequents the park is a friend to her. Producer asks her if they would want to go on a walk together. Aiko misconstrues as going another lap around the park, but Producer states he want them to stroll down the "road of idols" together. Aiko says that she's happy that he saw potential in her, but states that she doesn't stand out or have any kind of hobby or specialty. Yet Producer responds, saying that her kindness is one of a kind. Aiko again is puzzled, telling Producer that kindness is normal for anyone. But if she can spread kindness and pleasant feelings to others, she would love nothing more than to be an idol. Aiko asks Producer to tell her more about being an idol and thus, her idol journey begins.
Though seen as the orthodox idol of the Passion attribute, her unconditional kindness and gentle aura separate her from the other idols. An easygoing and wholesome girl from Tokyo, Aiko enjoys the little things in life amidst the hustle and bustle of living in the city. Due to her carefree disposition and 'soft sister' personality, Aiko doesn't like competition. In the beginning of her idol career, she disliked how auditions and LIVE battles were overly competitive. But to deliver pleasant feelings to her fans, she gradually became more positive partaking in competitive idol activities as a way to make her fans happy. Additionally, she lacked confidence in being an idol due to seeing herself as a "normal" girl with no special traits. However, with the Producer and other idols' support, she learned that her kindness and tranquil aura make her beloved by all of her fans. She rarely, if ever, gets angry or experiences strong emotions due to her placidity. Because of this, many different idols in the production like to talk to her when they feel sad or anxious since Aiko has the power to instantly put them in a better mood. One notable exception to this is she sometimes loses her composure during times where she has to wear an embarrassing outfit or when having a heart-to-heart conversation with Producer. She is grateful for Producer for helping her walk the idol road, wanting to continue to be an idol for the sake of her fans, friends, and Producer's smiles.
When fans and her fellow idols talk to Aiko, they often feel themselves surrounded in her calming atmosphere. People who enter her aura often become more relaxed and lose track of time, often talking to Aiko for longer than they anticipated. For example, Uzuki Shimamura and Mika Jougasaki interviewed her for a Cinderella Radio segment and became so serene they didn't notice the producers telling them to wrap up the segment. Her hobbies include going on walks, photography, and making handmade accessories. She has also showed interest in making homemade candies. She loves to take walks and photograph nature while on her strolls. Even though she enjoys photography, she isn't super serious about it and enjoys it casually. Aiko also likes to give her homemade crafts to other idols and Producer, as she says it's her way of spreading pleasant feelings. Aiko is largely designed around the Mori-Kei subculture especially in her choice of clothing and temperament. She often wears muted, earth-toned flowy dresses, floral accessories and her hair in a high bun/ponytail. It's also said that she is always on the hunt to find cute but comfortable shoes she can go on strolls in. Funny enough, when fans say to her "You look like a Mori Girl!", she always responds "How so?" allegedly.
She is close with the other members of Positive Passion, Mio Honda and Akane Hino. They often get together during their spare time and do activities like eat at restaurants, sing karaoke, or have tea and talk at each others' houses. Finding it hard to refuse her friends, she often joins in Mio and Akane's escapades as a common gag. For example, Akane often forces Aiko to exercise and run with her even though she has incredibly low stamina. This often ends with Aiko on the ground, panting heavily and unable to move. Aiko is also seen to be very modest and doesn't like to show skin. At the beach with Mio and Akane, she gets teased for not removing her hoodie. Aiko is also seen to be close with Yumi Aiba, Tsubaki Egami, Chieri Ogata, and Karin Domyoji due to common interests (nature & photography) and personalities respectively.
