Yoko, is put simply, a judgemental teenaged girl with an all-consuming love for fashion and the fashionable. She’s haughty and condescending, all the while putting on a friendly and cute facade for all to enjoy. It’s not that she wants to be mean, oh no, she just can’t help but be mean when there’s so many ugly people in the world! It’s her life’s mission to be as pretty and beautiful as possible for every waking moment. Something something sakura ephemerality of beauty something something. If life’s that short, then every second better be art, damn it!

Despite her “tough love” act, Yoko’s fickle because of her own lack of self-confidence. She’s quick to change sides and opinions if the majority favors something else. This also means that she’s very sensitive to criticism and fashion trends. If enough people tell her that wearing so-and-so brand is unfashionable and ugly, she’ll believe them, no matter her own opinion.

Ironically, despite her lack of conviction, she can be extremely stubborn when she’s personally offended. Yoko also feels deeply threatened by anyone she deems prettier than herself. It steals the attention from her, and that’s just not right when she tried so hard to be outstanding!

Since she’s a third year now, she's hiding her insecurities with an even more overbearing personality. Yoko doesn’t want to bully around her kohai, oh no, she just can’t help but bully when there’s so many stupid kohai!


Born and raised in Kyoto, her posh accent hides the fact her parents are as average as you can get. Her father is a salaryman and her mother is an office secretary. However, her siblings are bit of a different story; her older sister is enrolled in Tokyo University, having the highest entrance examination score of her year, and her younger sister is a math genius who’s already on her way in becoming a recognized scholar and scientist. Yoko had every reason to develop a bit of a middle child syndrome.

Yoko’s love for brand makeup and dresses quickly drew the ire of her parents. They were just far too middle-class to afford the luxuries, and as Yoko was unremarkable compared to her sisters, they found little reason to indulge her fancies. Little by little, Yoko began a full-scale operation to be as rebellious as possible. Her appearance became more and more ridiculous, culminating in her getting into ganguro and other ridiculous gyaru fashions. Her parents, just as planned, were completely appalled.

Finding it impossible to control the temper and stubbornness of their middle daughter, they unceremoniously plopped her up north in Hokkaido. Yoko would stay with her grandparents, who are farmers in Furano, until her graduation. Apparently, this was to teach her to be grateful for what she already had and enjoy the quietness of the countryside. Aw, hell no!

They sent her up north on her last year of junior high, and much of her anger and bitterness has dissipated and settled since then. She’s still kind of pissed off about that though, what kind of parents send their daughter away to this middle of nowhere god-forsaken cold ass mountain island? Even more sickening was that the local public high school had god awful uniforms. Seeing that the private school had uniform customization at least, Yoko, for once, worked her ass off to pass the exams to get in. With her temper, she managed to pass.

At least she was free to do whatever she wanted now.

Like bully her kohai.

Additional Information:

  • Yes, she's a classic tsundere.
  • She's been involved in the gothic lolita, ganguro, and kogyaru scenes. Right now she's liking angura kei.
  • Nevertheless, her love for Angelic Pretty is undying.
  • Has rather tanned skin due to her ganguro past. She regrets it and pretends she's been this dark all along.
  • She was best friends with Satsuki's sister, Hazuki, during junior high school.
  • Her hair is obviously dyed and she regularly puts on colored contacts. Multi-colored sparkly purple-pink contacts are her favorite.
  • Runs a fashion blog under the name "Watabe Yoruko". It's somewhat popular.

Yoko: Ohooo~! You think you're a tough guy, don't you? Tch, I've seen tons of boys like you back in middle school in Kyoto. Well, let me just tell you that scrunching up your face like that is going to give you wrinkles by the time you're 30! Loosen up, or you'll really regret it. [With a curt nod.]
