Aya (AKA Dancing Fighter) is a content creator who got her start as a Twitch broadcaster on December 31, 2012. On July 16, 2014, Aya became a partnered Twitch broadcaster due to the popularity surrounding her Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney voice acted playthroughs. Her voice has become one of the foundational reasons why Dancing Fighter TV still thrives today! Aya loves to also mix in her love of anime in some of her broadcasts and sometimes even her cosplay!
Since 2010, Aya has taken cosplay to be quite the serious hobby. Alongside her “guild” of cosplayers—consisting of Sharkimoto, the seamstress, Astrobullet, the armorsmith, mell0w m1nded, the blacksmith, and Unclean Ramen, the photographer – she has formed a team that always focuses on one very fundamental aspect of cosplay: “Have fun with it.”
Since then Aya has cosplayed many characters she admires and always makes sure she and her team are ready to strike the best poses around. Her most notable cosplays thus far are the “Rule 63” Mighty Morphin’ Black Ranger, two versions of Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill, and most recently NieR: Automata’s 2B equipped well with a Virtuous Contract and 8 foot tall Beastlord! Aya always makes it a point to have poses and props very unique to the characters she cosplays, especially those that allow her own twists when possible!
Aside from the streaming and cosplaying life, Aya has also gone on to attain her dream: working at Square Enix for the two MMORPGs, FINAL FANTASY XI and FINAL FANTASY XIV. She is a Community Relations Representative of these two amazing titles and always looks forward to meeting players at events!
Aya always looks forward to new experiences and meeting new people so Oni-Con is the perfect venue as this is her very first appearance here! If you see her around, don’t be shy to say, “Hi!”
