Introduction Video

Official Bio

「A-quality day to one and all! I'm Minato Aqua!」 A marine maid-styled virtual maid. She is trying her very best, yet is still sometimes awkward and clumsy."

Overview

Minato Aqua (湊あくあ) is a marine maid Virtual YouTuber for Hololive 2nd Generation unit. Her YouTube channel was created on July 31st and her twitter account was created few days later. On August 08th 2018 she posted her video debut to YouTube[8]. On April 8th 2019 she debuted her first 3D model[9] and debuted her 3D swimsuit model[10] a few months later in August 17th 2019. She also got a New Year Live2D costume in January 2nd 2020[11].

Aqua is most known to be a cute airhead maid who likes to prank her friends, but somehow it almost always backfires due to the combinations of her less than desirable luck and lack of preparations. Because of that, she tends to be the target of jokes and pranks from other members.

She loves to play competitive PVP games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, League of Legends, and Apex Legends (where she managed to finish Season 4 at Diamond 4[12]). She also likes to complete challenge runs of games, some examples being beating Dark Souls in under 3 hours[13], a Sekiro speedrun in under 2 hours[14], or endurance Apex Legend stream until Diamond[15][16].

Her representative emote is an anchor due to her marine theme and anchors on her dress.

Personality

From her first debut video, Aqua looks like a pure and innocent maid who likes to play video games. As the time goes on, she evolved from a pure and innocent maid to a giant airhead who somehow always ended up in an embarrassing situations (sometimes deliberately). Despite that, she makes no attempt to avoid any actions that may ending up humiliating her because of her masochistic tendencies. She even dedicated one stream for other Hololive members to bully her[17]. She is also childish and likes to throw tantrums by smacking her table and screaming when things don't go as she initially plans. One of her catchphrase (which she shares with other 2nd generation member, Murasaki Shion) is "NEEEEEE".

Although her initial image may paint her as a childish and crybaby, Aqua is extremely resilient and will stop at nothing to reach her goal, especially in gaming. She often will do very long endurance stream to finish the challenges she put on herself. She is also shown to be very mechanically skilled in a competitive games[18] being one of the best Smash and Apex player in Hololive.

According to other Hololive members, Aqua is kind but very shy and introverted while off-camera.
