"I'm Aki Yamato! With a hardened body and spirit, I'm ready to launch my invasion of show business. I'm gonna subject you, Producer-dono, to my full firepower, so prepare yourself. Alright, let's start with basic physical training!"
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"Salute to Producer-dono! I'm Aki Yamato. With my well-trained body and mind, I'll fight through this harsh idol world to the bitter end!"
Aki is an upbeat woman who loves everything military related: from the smallest combat knives to the largest naval warships. She has a massive collection of airsoft and replica guns, including several out of production airsoft weapons. Aki is very knowledgeable in the topics of wilderness survival and military tactics, and is also a crack shot with airsoft guns. She cares very deeply about military hardware and military history.
She has been known to bring a four-tube MANPADS (an anti-aircraft rocket launcher) party streamer to the office. She also tends to be very trigger happy, especially when in airsoft or paintball tournaments. Aki enjoys playing First Person Shooter games.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Aki shows off her sharp shooting skills at a carnival event. She believed Halloween to be a celebration of the victory of gods over devils, and is eager to try shooting candy instead of live rounds from her weaponry. She usually has her mind occupied with armies and weaponry, which has affected her mentality and some conversational skills. Aki can be seen struggling with an unusual acting concept in the dressing room along with Natalia, Natsuki Kimura, and Hotaru Shiragiku during a live tour. She also enjoys play fighting with her fellow idols as practice for upcoming roles, but is admittedly terrified of Kiyora Yanagi as an opponent.
In the Junjou Midnight Densetsu event, it was shown that Aki is very enthusiastic about muscles, and was pleased to be in a unit of well built girls. She initially clashes with Takumi Mukai because she didn't understand the delinquent lifestyle, but the two become fast friends after an arm wrestling match.

|Aki: Yamato Aki here! Moving in to position! Will now proceed to engage the questions!|
|Question: Aki-san, you are always cheerful and your smile is wonderful. But have you been down or sad before? During those times, how do you get back to the swing of things? Also, thank you for always cheering me up. I always have and always will love that.|
|Aki: Thank for such kind words! I do have times when I'm down. When that happens... #DereMail|
|Aki: That would be great time for some work-out! When you move around your body, you'll be able to sort out the things on your mind.|
|Aki: It's surprisingly refreshing to keep your body busy to the point of not thinking of anything else.|
|Question: Do you feel happy when being told that you're cute?|
|Aki: It is only natural to be happy when being praised for the things born out of the efforts you put in each day.|
|Aki: It's important to the morale to give positive remarks to one another. And I intend to keep doing this with everyone.|
|Aki: But, how should I put this... I'm not really used to that. So, I get embarrassed when told upfront.|
|Aki: And with that, I'll be resuming my objective! To all those who have sent those messages, I salute to you!|
