Minato Yukina is a first-year student at Yotsuba Women's University, as well as the leader and vocalist of Roselia. She is a powerful vocalist, sparking the admiration of the other Roselia members, as well as the other people around her.

She is next-door neighbors with her childhood friend Lisa, and also considers Ran a rival.

Background[]

Her father, who was a professional singer, is the reason Yukina started singing. One of her goals was to reach the top as a vocalist that would impress her father and encourage him to start his pro career again; as the story goes on, she wants Roselia as a whole to become the best instead of just herself.

She is also trying to get Roselia to the "Future World Fes", which is a music festival reserved only for the best bands in the world, and where her father played as well. They eventually achieve this in Noble Rose -A Song, an Extreme- and move onto higher goals.

Appearance[]

Yukina has sharp, gold eyes and long silver hair worn loose with some type of hair decoration. Her long forelocks rest over her shoulders and her bangs just reach her eyes.

Her casual attire is fairly fancy with muted or dark tones. In her initial outfit, Yukina wears a white buttoned-up shirt with frills, a knee-length black pencil skirt and purple high heels. Her outfit is complemented by a black butterfly hairpin and black bracelet with a rose on it.

During winter, Yukina wears a small black cardigan with a blue button-up shirt with frills in the middle, and a two-layered white knee-length skirt and a gray ribbon with purple lace and a black rose in the middle. She also wears black tights with both her default and winter outfits. During summer she wears a sleeveless blue-gray shirt with stripes, a white ribbon around her neck, and a two-layered indigo skirt.

Personality[]

Initially, Yukina started off as a cold-blooded, fierce and passionate girl, who had a cutthroat attitude towards reaching her goals, expected nothing less than perfect results, and takes practice very seriously. Because of this, she had no qualms with chiding or insulting someone if she feels they are underperforming, and was openly dismissive to people she deems below her standards. However, with the people who are on her good side, she is not quite as cold as usual. She also has trouble displaying her emotions properly and appears stoic most of the time.

Though Yukina is proud of her abilities and talent as a singer, she has also seen this as a bit of a weakness, because she thinks she is only good at singing and nothing else.[1] However, she eventually becomes more confident and passionate, and is even able to say that she "loves music more than anyone else."[2] As the story goes on, she softens up considerably, and starts showing her appreciation towards others more.

She secretly loves cats[3][4] and tends to deny it while blushing when questioned about it. Yukina also tended to be stubborn over certain things such as her inability to do household chores,[5] though she eventually starts overcoming this and wants to learn more about cooking and baking. In addition to this, despite initially claiming they were a waste of time, she starts getting engaged in activities outside of music, especially with the other members of Roselia (such as playing Neo Fantasy Online or getting interested in theater production).[6][7]

Outside of her bandmates (and Hina), whom she calls by their first names, she refers to everyone with their last names and honorifics.
