PersonalityEdit

Aoi is a very kind, thoughtful and polite young woman, enough for it to be noted by Kaoru. She is often shown to be able to believe in people, and encourage them, such as when she told Taeko to keep making an effort to be a housekeeper despite her clumsiness, comparing it to her own situation when she was young. She has been described as a Yamato Nadeshiko (traditional Japanese beauty) time and time again by various characters, and every other female in the Sakuraba household aspires to be more like her.

Aoi is very devoted to Kaoru, having loved him ever since they were children, and is willing to do anything in her power to prevent being separated from him. When the Hanabishis announced that her engagement to Kaoru was called off, Aoi found this unacceptable and pursued him. It gets to the point that she can barely stand being away from him, even for just a day, and she says at one point that she couldn't imagine spending her life with any man other than him. Initially, however, Aoi did not know why Kaoru left the Hanabishi clan, and assumed that she was the reason and that he did not like her at all. After learning the truth from Kaoru as to why he left the family, Aoi expresses her deep sympathy and doesn't want him to return to the Hanabishi family due to the misery and abuse he suffered from them.

However, Aoi is also very shy and demure, even addressing Kaoru as "Kaoru-sama". She has a habit of frequently apologizing, often for things that aren't even her fault, such as clinging to Kaoru in her sleep, which she has no control over. Ironically, she takes Kaoru apologizing to her very poorly, claiming that she understands his feelings better than anyone and that there's no need for him to ever be sorry. While she does get jealous sometimes, as any woman in love does, she manages to control it and remains hopeful and optimistic that Kaoru will stay loyal to her, and her faith always pays off.

While generally quiet, subservient and consistently selfless, Aoi is far from being a doormat and is in fact a very plucky and determined young woman. Aoi will fight for the things and people she loves, even willing to defy her own family just so she can be at Kaoru's side. At one point, she even goes so far as to part ways with them just to be with Kaoru, though she regretted this shortly afterwards.

Appearance to Others Edit

Aoi as we later know, is needed greatly in the Sakuraba family home. When Tina, Kaoru, and Taeko are off to school, Aoi stays home to clean, do the laundry, cook, and take care of the pets as well as Miyabi. She is very efficient in her work and is a very good cook. When Aoi gets sick with influenza, the rest try to fill in on what she does, and find it very difficult that she works and puts in much effort without showing signs of distress or complaint.

TriviaEdit

  1. Aoi's given name (aoi) has the same pronunciation as the Japanese word for "blue" (青), but the kanji used (葵) translates to "hollyhock". Her surname (桜庭sakuraba) means "cherry-blossom garden", and her given name means "hollyhock flower".
  2. She has a habit of clutching things in her sleep.
  3. Her birthday, July 7th, is the day of the Tanabata Festival, which celebrates the meeting of deity lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi as it is the only day are they allowed to meet on the seventh day of the seventh month once a year.
