Aiko is tomboyish, and awkwardly lanky and tall. She's easily distracted and spends most of her time daydreaming or playing video games, and her temper is as short as her attention span. Aiko has a love of high places, and enjoys traveling in flying vehicles or looking out from observation decks on towers or tall buildings. She can be loud, proud and belligerent; she hates being seen as vulnerable to others. She sometimes slips into a Tennessean accent, moreso when she loses focus or becomes particularly aggravated.

'''Aiko is tomboyish and awkwardly tall for her age. She's not good at striking up a conversation, mostly because she's usually distracted by daydreaming or video games.

Aiko has a love of high places, and enjoys traveling in flying vehicles or looking out from observation decks on towers or tall buildings.

Aiko Kikyuune (Kikyuune Aiko ( 気球音アイコ )) is a voicebank for the UTAU and UTAU-Synth program.

History

Before receiving a voicebank, Aiko was originally created as a fanmade VOCALOID character named Hazuru Sora. She was modified, given a voicebank, and subsequently released July 10, 2009 as part of Project UTAU XYZ, an UTAU series created by MystSaphyr.

Character item: blue helium balloon (sometimes depicted as Fuu: Aiko's pet balloon, and an inanimate-object UTAU also created by MystSaphyr)
