- Her name is spelled 明音, which is an unusual way to write "Akane". When she types her name on a computer, the kanji is not recognized. She gets around it by typing 明るい (Akarui), erasing the るい (rui), and adding the 音 (ne).
- Her first catchphrase was "Akarui Ongaku wo Kikoetekitara, akane machuri wa Hajimari! Akane machuri wa churi! Churi!" (When you are able to hear bright music, it’s the beginning of Akane festival! Akane festival is Churi! Churi!). The catchphrase incorporated the meanings of both of the kanji in her name, "bright" (明) and "sound" (音).
- Known for her love for birds.
- Owns four parrots, Papi, Pino, Pucho and Popo, all of which were raised from chicks and are named after food or sweets. She purchased another parrot chick in October 2012, but it passed away. In April 2013 she acquired Poporu, a cockateil.
- Her fans wave yellow and green penlights to support her, because yellow and green are the colors of her birds' feathers.
- Publicly asked Akimoto Yasushi to write an original stage for Team KII during her acceptance speech after ranking in the AKB48 22nd Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo "Kotoshi mo Gachi Desu". The stage was delayed several times even after Akane asked directly.
- Is a fan of the group Perfume
- A fan of the Chunichi Dragons
- Often sleep talks and sleep walks
- Her oshimen is Takahashi Minami

- Shares the same first name as former members Ito Akane (SKE48), Uriya Akane (AKB48), Takiyama Akane (NMB48) and Fukuda Akane (SDN48).
