Aoi is a young girl from Oita whose family owns a boarding house. She's been raised as its heir since she was little, and taught to cook as part of her boarding house owner training. Always energetic, she usually wears kimonos or kimono inspired outfits. She was raised to become a yamato nadeshiko.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Aoi is a happy kid who appears to love fish and cooking with them. She loves the sea, believing it to be a treasure trove of food, which startled Shiori Sena. Aoi participated in a Dream Festival match with Hajime Fujiwara, Kiyora Yanagi, and Kumiko Matsuyama where her cooking skills were extremely well accepted. She is at a loss when talking about love with older idols, but she loudly proclaims that cooking is like love instead. It was her idea to decorate the company office with hinamatsuri dolls. She is bad with worms and has problems with Kako Takafuji’s antics while trying to be an idol.
Trivia and Fanculture
- Interestingly, while Syoko Hoshi and Syuko Shiomi's names are romanized as "Sy-" (which is common among native Japanese speakers but not English speakers), Aoi's surname is rendered as Shuto rather than Syuto.
