Aya is a 15 years-old girl who likes to collect capsule toys and catching up with trends. Despite newly joining the unit and production, she aspires to become an idol more successful than even her colleagues Leon and Shika. The voice actress Rina Hidaka will provide both talking and singing voices for the new character.

Bandai Namco has also separately uploaded a story trailer for The Idolmaster: Starlit Season. It reveals that Aya also has a close acquaintance with Kohaku Okuzora, the other new character who will be part of the player’s 29-idol unit, Project Luminous. The game’s storyline will delve further into the relationship between both characters, as Aya objects to Kohaku’s inclusion into an idol unit.
