She also appears in a flashback during Kuroko and Uiharu Kazari's younger days as members of Judgment. Here, she is seen treating Mii's wounds, and jokes about throwing away her armband after Mii asked her what happened to it.

Silent Party Arc
- Main article: Silent Party Arc
Despite being completely absent for nearly the entirety of the anime, Aomi makes a sudden appearance for the climax of the Silent Party Arc, finally confirming that she remains a member of Judgment in the anime. Here, she first gets a call from Mii who asks her what she thinks of Academy City. It is here that is likely that Mii asks Aomi the favor of asking Judgment to participate against the Silent Party and protect the Academy City Research Exhibition Assembly venue from STUDY. She somehow has the authority or seniority to do this, and she later rallies a countless number of them just after the break of dawn. She later participates in the battle, preventing the Powered Suits to enter the venue and delaying them until Mikoto finds a way to stop STUDY completely. She acts as the field leader during the battle, sending out commands. When STUDY later hacks into their communications and Edasaki Banri and other telepaths volunteer to create a communication network for Judgment using telepathy, Aomi apologizes for the bother but Banri says she doesn't mind.
She later observes much of the events that transpire as the Powered Suits deactivate.
She briefly reappears on September 2, while looking at the sky together with Mii from a window of their school.
