  • The Ace: She's currently the top idol at Star Harmony Academy.
  • Deuteragonist: As Aine's Friends partner, she received as much attention and development as Aine does, potentially even more so as many of her focus episodes emphasize breaking out of her shell and relying more on Aine's skill.
  • The Fashionista: Founded her own brand, into fashion design and modeling, and is the cover model for a magazine.
  • Meaningful Name: Her first name has several relevant meanings in the context of her color theme, modeling theme, and the show depending on what kanji is used. Several involve the kanji for "ocean" (海), "beauty" (美), and "sound" (音). Some notable ones include:
    • (澪): "Waterway/channel". Combined with her last name, her full name can translate to "harbor waterway".
    • (愛音): "Love sound", this being the same kanji that can also be used to spell "Aine".
  • No Social Skills: Does great when on the job, but has a tendency to be unnatural when casually hanging out with friends. Aine, with her outgoing personality, helps her progressively break out of this.
    • An example is when her friends came over and she assumed they all wanted to talk about her massive wall of Love Me Tear all day.
