Yoshino Naganohara


25 naganohara yoshino


Japanese Name: 長野原 よしの
Romanized Name: Naganohara Yoshino
English Name: Yoshino Naganohara
First Appearance: Episode 2
Affiliated: Mio Naganohara (sister)
Japanese VA: Motoko Kobayashi

Yoshino Naganohara is Mio's older sister. She likes to wear costumes and often plays pranks on her sister. Understandably, Mio doesn't like it, and often beats her up for it. Yoshino practices kendo, and is very skilled at it.


She has medium length blueish-purple hair with bangs that go just past her shoulders, and wide purple eyes. She normally has a small blush on her cheeks like Mio.



She is a genius in the art, and managed to win in the national competition despite the fact that she is too lazy to train.

Expert Prankster

Besides spontaneous pranks, she has been shown to be dedicated enough to pull elaborated pranks:

  • Tampering Mio's alarm clock then patiently waits in ambush while dressed in her old high school uniform and wearing double masks. She has also prepared wooden fish and golden fish inside her bag.
  • Creating an awful jam, she asked Mio to test it when there was a water outage. She has also prepared an awful hot tea and replaced a carton of milk with more jam.

Her level of expertise may be on par with Mai Minakami.


She is also good at cooking, but not when making marmalade.


Mio Naganohara

Yoshino's younger sister, also her favorite victim.
Although Yoshino is proficient in kendo, she never tries to counter whenever Mio hits her with rolled up paper or corkscrew punches - that usually recurs after Yoshino pulls a prank on Mio.

Nano Shinonome

A complete stranger on chance encounter, Nano became another target of Yoshino's playful behavior.

Misato Tachibana

Yoshino's junior in a kendo dojo.

Mihoshi Tachibana

A middle schooler, Mihoshi is Yoshino's junior in a kendo dojo that looks up to Yoshino. Her dream is to land a clean hit on the Assistant Instructor, just as Yoshino did.

Koujirou Sasahara

Yoshino's junior in a kendo dojo.

Assistant Instructor

Assitant Instructor in the dojo where Yoshino and her friends practiced kendo.
When Yoshino was still a first year in middle school, she managed to land a clean hit on him.
