A Virtual YouTuber and 2nd batch member of hololive. Marine-style maid, turned cat girl.
Character designed by Gaou, her personal emoji is ⚓️ (anchor).
See post #3931939 for default outfit.
She has purple eyes and long, two-tone, purple hair with the inner parts being blue and streaks with blunt bangs, sidelocks and an ahoge, her default hairstyle consists of a pair of twin french braids that transition into a pair of drill-shaped twintails tied with blue ribbons.
Despite originally having canon medium breasts, she is often depicted with in fanart with large breasts, and Aqua herself has noticed how Gaou keeps drawing her with increasingly large breasts with each new outfit, causing her to say she'd rather be made taller as she's one of the shorter members.

Azur Lane Collab Outfit
Her Azur Lane collaboration outfit (post #3699071) is basically a one-piece swimsuit version of her default outfit, sporting detached sleeves and white thighhighs. She also rides a submarine rig with her trademark "neeeeee" written on the aft sides of the rig in hiragana and romaji. Due to her status in the collaboration event as a submarine, she ends up as a target of jokes by players who point out the Royal Navy Emblem's lack of a submarine shipgirl.
Personality and trivia
Aqua is somewhat of a klutz, which usually means her plans go belly up (in a very explosive way), in spite of this she has been shown to be quite good at a number of games. Aqua is usually paired with Murasaki Shion due to their Minecraft neighborly dispute, and her annoyed "neeeee!" is a trademark. Also pairs with Nakiri Ayame along with Shion in the once popular Manjigumi Trio. In Minecraft, she is often associated with the TNT block due to her tenacity of using them regularly (or often blowing herself up with it).
In spite with her "ponkotsu" tendency in other games, she's extremely skilled in FPS games, rivaling or even surpassing Shishiro Botan, most notably reached top 10 ranks of Japanese Apex Legends streamers in terms of efficiency.
Due to her very round head and hairstyle in her 3D models, she has gained the nickname "onion" from overseas fans, a nickname in which she's initially shy about it but embraced later.
On January 13, 2021, Aqua reached 1,000,000 subscribers during a singing stream, making her the fifth member of Hololive to do so (after Gawr Gura, Inugami Korone, Shirakami Fubuki, and Usada Pekora).
