Aine Yūki (友希あいね) is one of the main protagonists in the Aikatsu on Parade! series and was one of the two protagonists of the first and second season of the Aikatsu Friends! series. She is a student of the idol division at Star Harmony Academy. Aine is a cute-type idol whose preferred brand is Sugar Melody. Along with Mio Minato, the two are a part of Pure Palette.

Bio

Appearance

Aine has fair skin and vibrant red and orange eyes with flecks of yellow. She has thickly curled cornflower lilac-pink hair with a chardonnay-orange ombre. Her bangs are straight cut and worn with a sky blue headband that has a bow on the corner, while her short curled forelocks are worn over her shoulder beneath the ear.

As of season two, Aine's hair has grown slightly longer and curlier, which she now tied up slightly at the back, with some strands falling over her shoulders on either side. She has replaced the headband with a sky blue bow, which is worn on the right side of her head.


At the age of two, Aine had her small amount of hair tied up with a mini sky blue bow. As she grew older and had more hair, Aine adapted the twin pigtail hairstyle, held by mini bows as well. Reaching the age of eight, Aine let her hair down to shoulder's length, in which had developed great volume, and retained the bows, but this time as hairclips. Her final hairstyle change before her current one was when she reached the age of eleven, in which her side ponytail hairstyle was held up by a ribbon-bow that is the most similar to the one she has on her current headband.

Personality

Aine is a positive and cheerful person with a kind heart who is known for her ability to make friends easily.

Background

Aine initially having attended the normal division of Star Harmony Academy. While working at Penguin Café, Aine met Mio by coincidence and started to get to know each other. Mio then asked Aine to join her on her Aikatsu! activities. Aine agrees and officially transfers to the idol division.

Relationships

They instantly bonded after Aine made a delivery to drop off the lunch she ordered, and after forgetting to pay for the food she later returned to Penguin Cafe. After playing with Aine and her little brother she came to the decision to ask Aine to team up with her for the upcoming Aikatsu event and Aine accepted, now seeing them as friends. 
Tamaki is Mio, Aine, Maika and Ema's manager.

Quotes

"Cards are friends! Let's shine together!"

– Aine before her performance in season 1

"If a friend is in trouble, I will never refuse to help."

– Aine Yūki

"Come at me☆"

– Aine Yūki

"I'll make one million friends!"

– Aine's catchphrase

"I can't just tag along with Mio. The world of idols isn't that kind. I should've been trying to overtake Mio from the very start! Both Mio and Mirai are supposed to be my rivals!"

– Aine Yūki

"To me, you're my one and only as well. Even if I had a million friends, I'd still choose you!"

– Aine to Mio

"My dream is to make a million friends. Cards are friends, and fans are friends. But even with all my Friendsta followers, I'm still far short of that million, so I thought I was nowhere close to achieving my dream. But it's not the number that matters. Each and every friend..."

– Aine to Mio

"Every one of them is my precious friend. Each person friends' power pushes me a little further forward. With that in mind, I can feel myself brimming with more power than ever."

– Aine to Mio

"Being mature or childish has nothing to do with it. Your unadorned, genuine self is what make you special."

– Aine Yūki

Trivia

    • Along with Mio's birthday, the two's dates can be connected as 7 2 1 6 (何色 nani iro, lit. any color). This is a reference to their song, Everyone Everyone!, with one of the lines being This forever-going story, what color will it be this time? (ずっと続いてゆくストーリー 今度は何色だろう).
