Aya is a tomboyish girl from Fukuoka. She tends to be a bit aggressive in some areas, but Aya surprisingly gets excited when doing idol work and caring for others. She uses the very uncommon "atai" at first, but eventually changes to the more common and feminine "atashi" after progressing in idol work. She also has been depicted as being a sort of mentor and friend to Kozue Yusa, as she can be seen playing with her in a few cards.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Aya can be seen passing the baton to Uzuki Shimamura while in a sports event and worrying about Nene Kurihara and Ibuki Komatsu’s sunburnt skin before their live tour in Bali. Aya is seen getting caught in Yuki Himekawa’s baseball antics and playing with Kozue using a fan to distort their voices. When Kozue offered her some animal crackers, she admittedly felt bad for the cracker and didn’t know how to eat it without being brutal. In the end, she just talked with the cracker.
