On July 18th 2018, Aya ran a 100km solo marathon as an attempt to get more votes for BiS.LEAGUE. Her decision brought criticism from other members of the group (most notably, Go Zeela and Muropanako, the latter calling her "stupid") who found it reckless of her to try a marathon in the middle of summer. Despite this, she managed to run the whole 100 km.

On July 30th, Aya Eightprince ranked second place in the BiS League election and was promoted to BiS 1st.

Aya modelled for NEGLECT ADULT PATiENTS at Amazon Fashion Week on October 16th.

On December 29th, Aya ranked 2nd place in BiS.LEAGUE. Despite this, she was singled out alongside low-ranking members as being "unfit to perform with BiS" and at risk of being removed from the group.

2019 Edit

From March 24th, 2019, Aya, along with the other BiS members placed on probation, took part in the WACK AUDiTiON CAMP 2019. During the audition, it was announced that any BiS member who was eliminated during the audition, would also be fired from BiS.

Aya was eliminated from the audition on March 27th, and she was fired from the group effective immediately.

On March 30th, the remaining members of BiS announced that they would disband in response to Aya Eightprince's and Toriaez Hana's firings from the group. Because of this, Aya and Toriaez were allowed to return to BiS until their disbandment.

BiS' second generation officially disbanded on May 11th. During their final show, Aya Eightprince announced that she would leave WACK entirely at the end of the month, using her remaining three weeks to search for work at another agency.

On May 31st, Aya Eightprince's contract with WACK expired, and she left the company.

On July 24th, Aya Eightprince announced on her twitter that she would be starring in the twitter web series "Chikai Youde Toukutte", with episodes being published weekly starting from July 29th.

Aya Eightprince held her first solo live on November 6th, where she revealed a new song. That same month, she performed at Pour Lui's "Felty World" exhibition, making it the first time the two performed together since the latter graduated from BiS in 2018.

On January 17th, Aya Eightprince concurrently released her first two photobooks, Bouquet and Sprinkle.

On February 1st, Aya opened a SoundCloud account and posted her first song demo, "DAWN", on February 1st, followed by "Kimi Iro Melody" just a day later.

Trivia Edit

  • During the BiS/GANG PARADE rental trade, Aya expressed her disdain towards being part of BiS, claiming that she would often receive rude remarks from staff, while she felt more welcomed as part of GANG PARADE. This conflict was seemingly a factor into Aya's eventual firing from BiS; one of the reasons why Aya was eliminated from the WACK AUDiTiON CAMP 2019 was that she was ranked as the least-liked member during a survey of staff members.
  • Aya's audition name, "Koshouji Megumu", is a parody of Koshouji Megumi.
  • In an interview, Aya talked about a bisexual girl in the audition camp that tried to hit on her. It's likely that she's talking about Terashima Yuka, who came out as bisexual during the audition.
  • Can play the saxophone.
  • Was the only member of BiS 2nd to be promoted to BiS 1st during the BiS.LEAGUE period.
