[[spoiler:Those powers first manifest unconciously in stressing moments as she helps her friends with a blank expression. Ibara and Taeko [[LockedOutOfTheLoop never tell her about her powers]], until Aoi gains a split personality named Izanami Jyugotenshi, named after [[ShowWithinAShow an anime heroine]].

* PowerDyesYourHair: [[spoiler:Her hair becomes green when she turns into Izanami]].
