Aiko Hatayama (はたやまあい, Hatayama Aiko?) is a main character from the "Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest" series.

She is a high school social studies teacher, who along with her students from Japan, was involved in the summoning incident and ended up in Tortus.

Appearance

Aiko is a petite woman often described as having a childlike figure by others. She has short dark-brown hair and brown eyes (green eyes in the anime).

Personality

Aiko is a very responsible teacher and cares a lot for her students. She often misunderstands the peoples feelings of affection for her as being friendly. Even as a child, she would always focus on obeying the rules and reprimand anyone that broke them.

She had a strong moral nature, can be very stubborn and carries the belief that as a teacher, she should always protect her students and support them. This causes her to be too idealistic, to the point where she often contradicts herself. Such as not wanting to get her students to be involved in anything dangerous or to solve their problems through violence, yet later convincing her student Hajime to risk his life to protect the town of Ur when it was under the threat of a monster invasion, something she knew as a contradiction of her own beliefs. Furthermore, she attempts to reason with Yukitoshi and even wants to save his life after he tried to kill her.

After recognizing how most of her ideals were meaningless without the will to act, Aiko resolves herself to better protect her students instead of being the one being protected. This is displayed when she chooses to fight against the Holy Church alongside Tio. While she admit she didn't regret her actions after the battle, her strong morals still causes her a lot of pain because she had been responsible for the deaths of many people. She also stops trying to force her ideals on to others and now takes the time to consider the reasons for their actions, instead of expecting them to go along with her wishes.

Aiko is also very charismatic, leading her to be worshiped as a deity in Tortus. This is the result of her hard working nature, strong moral character and her cute appearance. She has always been terrible at keeping secrets and tends to openly express her feelings, which makes it easy for those who know her to guess what is bothering her. This allows her family and childhood friend Taichi to figure out her lover is actually one of her students.

After becoming one of Hajime's wives, Aiko picks up some of his excessive traits. This includes being brutal against anyone that would threaten her family, and using her magic in ways that defy common sense, without consideration. Although she still fundamentally opposes using violence, she has resolved herself to take aggressive action in order to protect those that she cares for.

Quotes

  • (To Hajime Nagumo): "Nagumo-kun, I understand that you have your own principles, and that you’ve already decided your path for the future. I won’t try to change that, but I also think that no matter which future you choose, it’s... too lonely to only live by ignoring everyone aside from those you care about. If you keep going like this, neither you nor the people you cherish will find happiness. If you want to find happiness... you can’t lose sight of your kindness or empathy. You have to think of other people, even if it’s only a little. Those are valuable qualities you possessed from the start... Please don’t throw them away."[3]

Etymology

  • The name "Aiko" means "love, affection" (, ai?) and "child" (, ko?).

  • Aiko's "Protection Wand" Artifact is very similar to the wand wielded by the Liberator Lyutillis Haltina from the Zero series. They are both even spelled using the same kanji (守護杖, Shugo Tsue).
