Eir Aoi loved playing games since childhood, and is an owner of most game consoles. She is known among her fans as a hardcore gamer who plays dark-fantasy RPG and FPS.
The idea to feature her as a columnist came up when she did an interview with Dengeki Online at the time of her album release. As the conversation proceeded, it became evident that she was a hardcore gamer. The Dengeki Online staff loved her and offered her this position asking, 'would you like to start writing a column on games?', to which she agreed.
