Mio is a member of the light music club. She originally intended to join the literary club, but is forced into the light music club by her childhood friend and the club's drummer, Ritsu Tainaka. Mio is the shyest member of the club and is easily embarrassed, but even so, she is the most mature of the bunch. She was emotionally damaged for a short while after falling down on stage during a performance and landing in such a position that her blue and white striped panties were visible to everyone in the audience. This incident was also the catalyst for her popularity, and the forming of her own fan club in the school.
Mio's bass is a left handed Sunburst Fender Jazz with Tortoiseshell pickguard.
Mio claims that she chose the bass because she wanted to avoid the spotlight which naturally fell on the guitarist. Despite this, she ended up sharing singing duties with Yui, and wrote several of Houkago Tea Time's songs.
Amongst the students of the all-female Sakura High School, Mio is extremely popular, and has her own fan club.
Mio Akiyama is voiced by Yōko Hikasa in the original Japanese dub, and Cristina Vee in the English dub.
