Yanase Yuu


Yuu has medium-length brown hair and light maroon eyes. He is also seen to wear glasses when he's working in the manga and often favors a light brown duster jacket when working with Chiaki.


Hatori YoshiyukiEdit

Yuu has known Hatori since junior high. From the start, the two did not have a very good relationship, though the initial reason why is unclear. It is speculated that their troubled start is a result of their mutual desires to get close to Chiaki, both of them being in love with him. Every time they meet, there is obvious tension between them, resulting in barbed insults and double-edged compliments. The main reason why they never get along is because they are both in love with Chiaki Yoshino. However, even though Hatori dislikes Yuu, he respects his skills as a mangaka's assistant and will not hesitate to ask him for help in matters regarding Chiaki. Likewise, Yuu has been known to call Hatori when worried about Chiaki, letting Hatori know when something seems to be wrong.

Yanase Yuu's profile.

Chiaki Yoshino Edit

Yuu and Chiaki have been friends since junior high. It is known that Yuu has a crush on Chiaki, though Chiaki has only ever considered him to be a good friend. Though they are the best of friends, they also quarrel quite often, mostly over an attempt by Yuu to let Chiaki know how he feels. Despite these attempts, for a long time, Chiaki was unaware of how Yuu felt towards him, finding out only after Yuu had become drunk during their spa trip around Chiaki's birthday. Between the two, Chiaki has always relied on Yuu, stating that the latter is always doing things right.

  • Though a major failed love interest in the series, very little is known about Yuu's personal life.
