Yuuki Aoi at BlazBlue Event

On Sunday, Yuuki Aoi was part of the "Blue Fes" event in Tokyo, celebrating the 2D fighting game BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, in which she plays the character Platinum the Trinity プラチナ=ザ=トリニティ .

As she was waiting to go on, she posted to her blog about a necklace that has gone on sale for $2500: a platinum necklace in the shape of Platinum's weapon:

Platinum is "a young girl with three personalities named Luna, Sena, and Trinity. Luna is a rude, unkind girl; Sena is a polite young boy; and Trinity is the spirit of the Sixth Hero, but cannot come out often and fades quickly." (Wikipedia) More info.

From Ao-chan's blog:


Next it's Blue Fes

I'm waiting to go on ///
and then... publicity work...

Platinum's platinum necklace... limited edition...!

On sale now for ¥200,000 [~$2500] (*^o^*)

Entirely made of platinum...

Luna is waiting for a lolico... I mean a fan... to give her ¥200,000.

Okay, on to doing publicity.

I'll do my best!

In the game, the character Ragna is sometimes called a lolicon, because he spends time with Platinum, the loli character in the game.

One sometimes wonders if Ao-chan is aware of the salacious posts in her 2channel thread. She is often called a "legal loli" or "big-boobed loli." I think she is aware of this, being a bit of an otaku herself. To retain her sanity, the only way for her to react is to play along and make fun of this stuff.

Here is a YouTube video PV for Platinum. Ao-chan is the voice in the Japanese version of the game, needless to say. But fortunately, the Japanese audio is also provided with the English-language version of the game, and can be enabled (thanks to caitlyn for that information).

Blazblue's overseas releases have full Japanese audio, so technically she's also Platinum's voice in the NA and EU versions of the game, as well, just not by default
