During the first episode, like Endou Mamoru, she also wanted others to practice. Kurimatsu Teppei,Shishido Sakichi,and Kabeyama Heigorou even told her that she sounded like Endou, she also agreed that his influence wore off on her. She also played soccer when she was a child, until she experienced a horrible trauma because of an accident that happened to her Ichinose Kazuya. She often described Endou rather similar to Ichinose and she continued as a manager for Raimon Eleven. She received a phone call from an unknown number, introducing himself as the "deceased" Ichinose. Both Aki and Domon wait in the airport to see Ichinose directly as he informed her that he will be coming home to Japan from America. Both of them soon head back to Raimon as there were no signs of Ichinose on the plane, arriving, Ichinose hugs Aki and she shows a hint of blush which leads some people to assume her romantic feelings for Ichinose. Later on, when Endou, Ichinose and Domon were trying to master the hissatsu Tri-Pegasus,she was eventually the reason they were able to complete it. She was also, along with Haruna and Natsumi, the one to discover what Zeus' source of incredible power during the match with Raimon.
During the fight against Aliea Gakuen, she was sad that many of the players in the team got injured but she encourages everyone to do their best, just like Endou. In episode 40 during the ferris wheel scene, both Natsumi and Aki hesitate on sitting beside Endou for the ride to search, showing another possible sign of romantic feelings for Endou. Soon after Rika confessed her feelings for Ichinose and called him "darling", Aki was shocked and was worried about Ichinose as hinted to her expressions through the episode. Endou almost gave up when Kazemaru Ichirouta left the team, so she tries encouraging him, but unfortunately, she cannot change his mind. Ultimately, Endou was able to move on after watching Tachimukai trying to complete Majin The Hand, much to Aki's satisfaction.
She's the landlord of the apartment where Matsukaze Tenma lives. She was mistakenly assumed by Nishizono Shinsuke as Tenma's mother. She seems to be uncomfortable by his assumption, though Tenma immediately corrects him, saying that she is more of an "onee-san" or elder sister. She takes care of Tenma by cooking him food.

Later in Episode 041 (GO), she is seen talking with Natsumi when Raimon was about to play the finals match. She also say to Natsumi that Matsukaze Tenma is similar to Endou Mamoru, Natsumi's husband and it made Natsumi blushing.
