"Osu! ...O-Or not! Thank you! Producer, my teacher said the same thing as you!! I'll definitely become the strongest idol, so please lend me your coaching and encouragement!!"
Yuka is a karate champion who seeks to expand her horizons by becoming an idol. She was her karate teams’ team captain and was the ranking National Champion. Karate is a major aspect of her life, but she wants to be a master of dance and song as well. During her interview, she admits to the judges about how her karate master told her how there were multiple paths she could take in life other than Karate. She told the judges about her secret admiration for idols, and how she wanted to see for herself what this path in her life would be like.
During her initial lessons, Yuka is shown to be frustrated with herself, but she admits that she finds some joy in her frustration. She relates this frustration to her first days in karate, when her master would tell her that she wouldn't reach her full potential at the beginning. Yuka finds joy in the fact that her days in karate are similar to her ones as an idol, and she knows that practice will allow her to reach her full potential.
Interestingly, unlike other idols' hobbies, Yuka’s is never visually incorporated into her idol costumes. She's shown to wear a karate gi in her first card illustration (taken before she became an idol), but it's never been shown on stage. Instead, her trademark is her two ponytails, and she gets very embarrassed if she's seen with her hair down.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Yuka is depicted as being abnormally strong. In her first appearance, she breaks a dartboard in half with a single throw. She has some experience with cooking, although she does have trouble keeping up with a pumped up Takumi Mukai. She participated in a talk battle with Ayame Hamaguchi, Kurumi Ohnuma, and Kanade Hayami. When she landed a role with Aki Yamato and Itsuki Manabe in a Kung Fu movie, she eagerly performed moves that had a focus on animal names. She seems to like Yukari Mizumoto’s sleeping face.
Yuka appears in the Events listed below.

Trivia and Fanculture
- Yuka is voiced as of the tenth episode of the anime, first aired on March 21st, 2015, as a surprise cameo voice idol.
- In Starlight Stage, Yuka's image stats are relatively balanced, with a tiny lead in Vocal.
- Her catchphrase is "Osu", a form of greeting that originated among karate practitioners. Strangely, it is very rare for women to say "osu".
- She is the second oldest Yellow Lily member (the oldest being Misato Manaka) and the oldest Mellow Yellow member.
- Mellow Yellow itself consists of three voiced Yellow Lily members; Yuka herself, Yukari, and Noriko Shiina.
- Much like fellow Yellow Lily member Kana Imai, Yuka is also often compared to Nico Yazawa from Love Live! School Idol Project, due to both sharing pigtail hairstyle, although in the case of Yuka, the comparison is much less prevalent.
