An illustration of Yuru Yuri’s tsundere side-character, Sakurako, shows her alongside two others who are apparently her sisters – revealing the relationship held between a few of the new characters to debut in season two.
Sakurako is memorable from Yuru Yuri’s first run as a cute tsundere with a crush on her childhood friend – she’s seen occasionally sharing some sweeter moments with her, yet more frequently found engaging in rivalry contention, a specific point of conflict between them being Himawari’s superior upper body. To no surprise, Sakurako’s flat chest leaves her rather envious of her well-endowed lover and friend.
Atop Sakurako is apparently her imouto – the two look to have one of those relationships which aren’t so puffed with a loving exterior, though they do earnestly care for one another on the inside as one can insinuate by Sakurako giving her imouto a ride. It’s a family of tsunderes after all – although on another note, it’s questionable if the imouto is the age of middle school yet. Assuming the imouto isn’t in junior high, it means Yuru Yuri may be showcasing some elementary school action sooner or later.
And then there’s the onee-chan, looking to be the least active of the three – though definitely a dependable person in appearance. She seems quite gentle – and also rather caring and considerate towards her siblings as one can realize by noticing how she has her attention affixed on them, concerned for their well-being whilst they play around. Her uniform differs to imply that she’s likely already in high school – which also means Yuru Yuri may be delivering yuri on all levels of grade school.
As usual with Namori’s illustrations, regardless of the story one can derive from them, there always remains such a humanly tone – a group of close-knit sisters, each with their own individualistic personality.
