Aoi Kiriya (霧矢 あおい) is a character in the Aikatsu on Parade! series and was one of the main characters in the first and second season of the Aikatsu! series. She is a student at Starlight School. Aoi is a cool-type idol whose preferred brand is Futuring Girl.

Bio

Appearance

Aoi has a pale complexion with cobalt eyes and matching, wavy hair worn in a side-tail held with a light blue scrunchie. When her scrunchie is removed, her hair reaches slightly past her shoulder. At times Aoi may don a pair of glasses.

Personality

Aoi is a calm and bright girl. She is very intelligent, possessing an encyclopedic knowledge and excellent analytical skills. She is highly determined towards her goals and approaches them very seriously. Aoi makes sure to plan ahead and research as much as she can for a situation. She is hard-working and has a bit of a perfectionist streak.

She is known for being much more mature than Ichigo and tends to keep her on the right track, but has times when she can get very excited. While normally she seems confident and in good spirits, deep down Aoi is afraid of the fact that she knows it's possible she and Ichigo won't both rise to stardom together as planned.

Background

As a child, Aoi quickly became interested in idols after discovering the freedom and excitement of it, which was a strict contrast to the traditional arts she partook in. Since then, she has dedicated herself to idols and has studied idols ever since. She appears to be quite lucky as she is seen throughout the series meeting several idols she is a fan of.

After bringing Ichigo to a concert of Mizuki Kanzaki, Aoi encouraged Ichigo to join the life of idol hood together to try out for Starlight School.

Relationships

Ichigo is Aoi's best friend and co-member in Soleil. She was the one who first inspired Ichigo to become an idol, auditioned together and became idols together. They were also roommates from the very start of their idol journey and still are now. Aoi has also given Ichigo advice relating to all aspects of idols throughout the series and alongside Kī, was one of the two producers for the unit 2wingS.
Ran is another close friend of Aoi's, as well as another one of her co-members in Soleil. When the two first met, Ran was very sharp and serious with her and Ichigo, especially with Aoi having a frequent habit of embarrassing her about some unknown facts that contrast to her image as the Beautiful blade. As the series progresses, Ran warms to Aoi supporting her through everything she does.
Kī was Aoi's partner in the Partners Cup. They both share an interest in idols together and often trade information with one another. Together, they helped Seira and Ichigo realize what was important during their competition against WM.

Etymology

Kiriya (霧矢) Kiri () means fog and Ya () means arrow. It's considered that the surname Kiriya was taken from Hiromu Kiriya (霧矢大夢), a top star of Takarazuka Revue.
