He has brown skin with stubble on his chin and dark brown eyes. His dark brown hair is styled in dreadlocks that stick out as large points. He wears a brown haramaki and uses a yellow rope as his belt to hold up his large black pants that are rolled up past his ankles.
He also wears sandals. On his left wrist is a beaded bracelet with the symbol for his Former High School on each bead. After joining the Future Foundation post-Killing School Life in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School , Yasuhiro wears a black suit with a white shirt and a loose grey tie, however the jacket is kept on his shoulders as well as having small glasses.
His dreadlocks are kept in a ponytail and he has more kept light facial hair. He still rolls his pants up past his ankles, wears sandals, and his bracelet.
Yasuhiro is one of the more cheery, laid-back students, though a bit odd as well. However, he is generally not well-liked and he himself has openly admitted that he has no friends, being quite cowardly, lazy, slow-witted and having a habit to act selfishly. Notably, he is mentioned to be very clumsy with money and he has constant problems with massive debts.
This trait is especially apparent when he stated that he bought his crystal ball which is made of glass instead of crystal at the price of million yen due to it being used by Napoleon , Genghis Khan , and George Washington in the past. He has also bought multiple items related to fortune-telling, despite not actually having any use for them.
He tends to talk absurdly about subjects such as conspiracy theories and the one time aliens stole his hamburger. However, he really hates it if someone compares his fortune-telling to the occult, frequently insisting that they are not the same. He is also afraid of ghosts and would freak out if such a subject comes up in a conversation. Whenever he "senses" one, he swiftly recites a chant, casts a spell or begs for help from a hero, a god or a famous person often random, even multiple ones.
Even furthermore, he is stated to be absolutely horrible with women and has bad hygiene, claiming that he washes his hair once a season. Yasuhiro is quite gullible, and at first acts laid-back about the killing game, thinking it's some sort of a prank. However, after realizing it is real, he turns much more panicky and he is generally considered useless by the other students. However, he does treat his fellow classmates with general friendliness, going so far as to add the suffix "-chi", an affectionate term for dear friends in Japanese, to the end of everyone's first name except for Sakura Ogami , whom he is afraid of and just calls with the insulting nickname "Ogre".
In English translations, he tends to call other people "dude". Yasuhiro has quite a cowardly personality and often attempts to trick other people to get rid of his massive debts, charging incredibly high prices for his readings that, according to other people, often do not fit the accuracy of his fortune-telling. Yasuhiro also seems to possess a smarter, more cunning side despite regularly appearing slow-witted.
During his Free Time Events, he attempts to get Makoto to donate his organs so he could pay off a debt without having to dip into his own savings so he could retire in comfort, which causes even the usually trusting Makoto to feel that he cannot let his guard down around Yasuhiro. In Chapter 4, he admits that he has no problem hitting girls who can't fight back, and tried to frame Toko for the supposed murder when he thought he had killed Sakura.
His attack on Sakura was due to impulsively lashing out due to his fear, but in the end, he takes responsibility for his actions. This does not mean that he shows significant character growth, however. After joining Future Foundation and going on a mission in Towa City , he pretended to be sick in order to run away on his own so he could steal valuable items from the area and try to pay off his debt.
Despite his many flaws, Yasuhiro does possess a good side. In Ultra Despair Hagakure , he finally tries to become more of a hero and helps Kanon Nakajima , occasionally acting selfless and even though still retaining some of his greedy and selfish nature, he saves her life. He is also stated to genuinely love and care about his mother very much, which is why she was his Target. In Danganronpa 3 , he appears slightly braver and shows concern for his friends when they are in trouble, generally feeling more genuine comradeship towards them than before.
He manages to survive on his own for quite a while outside the building while being chased by helicopters and in the end, he runs to protect Makoto from brainwashed, armed men despite not having any weapons of his own though he was followed by Byakuya and his men. It is also notable that while he acts similarly to a con artist, he does possess actual supernatural abilities, as he truly is capable of seeing visions of possible futures.
However, it is unknown whether or not he can actually sense ghosts as he claims. Yasuhiro also has a strange tendency to survive tough situations against all odds. As a somewhat hidden side, he also displays amazing self-trained penmanship and a working knowledge of electronics by leading the dismantling of Monokuma and rewiring an antennae to pick up television signals from the outside world.
Interestingly, while often ambiguous, Yasuhiro really does possess real supernatural future-telling skills, though not entirely accurate. In Ultra Despair Hagakure , it's explained that he can see what appears to be rather detailed visions of possible future events, though they do not usually come true. At the beginning of Chapter 4 in the first game, Yasuhiro predicts that Kiyotaka's and Hifumi's deaths were the final murders committed during the Killing School Life, which turns out to be true as the remaining deaths were self-inflicted.
He also predicts that he and Makoto's children will share the same mother. This becomes true in the bad ending, as Aoi is the mother of both of their children. In Future Arc 06 , he predicted that everything would have a happy ending.
Despite several deaths occurring before and after his prediction, he was correct, as the survivors, including Class B , ended up having a happy ending in Side: Hope. Yasuhiro lived alone with his mother, Hiroko Hagakure , who loves him dearly despite his many flaws.
Very little is known about his father, though his father apparently lived with them at some point, as Yasuhiro once mentioned their house burning down because his father fell asleep with a burning cigarette. According to his mother, there was some sort of trouble between them because she did something and let it go on too long, causing them to break up.
Yasuhiro himself had several problems with women and money, and he also repeated middle and high school about four times. He used to attend Kiiwatetsu Commerce High School.
Yasuhiro saved up a small fortune by offering his services as a Fortune-Teller. Whilst his predictions rate alone netted him on most clients, it is also implied that he scammed much more. He claims to have spent the money on rare artifacts of mystical origins, such as a million-yen crystal ball that was allegedly owned by Napoleon Bonaparte and George Washington.
These were invariably proved to be forgeries. After attempting to "squeeze money out of" a wealthy female client, Yasuhiro became the target of his mafia connections; in Danganronpa IF , it was revealed that the extorted female client was from the Kuzuryu Clan presumably Natsumi Kuzuryu and that Yasuhiro had apparently abortively attempted to sell Makoto's organs to them.
Unwilling to pay off his debts by either selling his collections or digging into his savings, Yasuhiro went into hiding for three years before taking shelter at Hope's Peak Academy. He then attended the Academy as the Ultimate Clairvoyant. He is seen chatting with Byakuya and Toko.
One year later, the Tragedy occurred. During the Tragedy, Jin planned to seal the school building and let the students live forever inside the Academy in order to protect them from the destruction.
His plan was agreed by the class, and they sealed the building together and lived peacefully inside it for a year without knowing that the Ultimate Despair members were already in their midst. The true Ultimate Despair took away the Class 78th's school memories so they could participate in the Killing School Life.
Throughout the prologue and much of the first chapters, Yasuhiro remains the most relaxed out of all the students, assuming it to be an elaborate prank. When Makoto first introduces himself to Yasuhiro, Yasuhiro jokes with Makoto about his "guardian spirit" and then offers him to drink with him. When Makoto declines, stating he's far too young, Yasuhiro reveals he's been held back three times. Yasuhiro drops his relax attitude after Mukuro Ikusaba 's in Junko Enoshima 's guise impaling.
After the murder of Sayaka Maizono , Leon Kuwata used Yasuhiro's crystal ball to turn on the incinerator and burn his bloody t-shirt through the shutters blocking the garbage room. Yasuhiro tried to convince Chihiro Fujisaki that voting Leon to be executed does not mean they killed him themselves but to no avail, as he wasn't sure how to explain it. He also talked to Makoto about an ill omen within the display case and pleaded to escape from the school to get away from it. Later on, they are unable to find Byakuya Togami so go to search for him, Yasuhiro stating ominously that they should before it's too late.
After a conversation between the class about how it was strange that there had been no attempt to rescue them by the police, Yasuhiro explained he heard a strange noise while in the main hall, the sound of a construction noise if it had to be described. Monokuma appeared a little while later to explain the sound Yasuhiro heard may not have been construction, but rather an explosion or machine gun, and what is deduced is that it may be what is stopping the police from entering.
Yasuhiro seemed later shaken up by the assumption of a potential murder when only a few of the class show up in the dining hall. After Chihiro's body is discovered, Yasuhiro thought it was a joke when Sakura explained Chihiro was male.
During the Class trial, Yasuhiro is convinced Byakuya is the one who committed the murder, but then later changed his stance and agrees to hear more evidence. He later voted Mondo Owada as the killer along with the rest of the remaining class. However, Kyoko Kirigiri and the others found that many flaws in the suit's design, such as the wearer's inability to bend properly, ultimately led to Celestia being outed as the true culprit. After the revelation that Sakura was Monokuma's mole, Yasuhiro was one of the three among Byakuya Togami and Toko Fukawa that started to openly dislike her and didn't argue with Byakuya's point that Sakura should be killed.
Sakura invited Yasuhiro to a private meeting to see if she could make amends, which he incorrectly interpreted as an attempt on his life.
He knocked Sakura unconscious with a glass bottle and -believing he had accidentally killed her- framed Toko for the crime. After a light pressing in a Class Trial , Yasuhiro confessed his guilt. After it was revealed that Sakura committed suicide, he took back his dislike for her and swore not to try and kill anyone again.
He is seen with Aoi and Byakuya dismantling Monokuma after he was found motionless in the gym, providing him an alibi for Mukuro's supposed death. He expresses his apologies at the end of the class trial for causing Makoto to be accused of being the killer and sentenced to an execution. During the last class trial, Yasuhiro is one of these very students who sees Makoto as a non-existent figure.
Yasuhiro is motivated by Makoto's words that hope is still alive, and loudly replied that he would use his very own instinct to see through his own route because he believes that life is about moving forward despite the high and low. With his support to Makoto, Yasuhiro witnessed Makoto managing to force Junko onto her knees and execute herself in a special punishment in the progress; which finally resulted in her 'death' and the survivors are finally free from the strings of this sadistic game.
Considering their torments are finally over, Yasuhiro remains uncertain about life after his gruesome journey, yet he would optimistically remark that instead of doomsday like Junko mentioned considered it as a big fat lie , the other side would be normal or even happier than before.
Hence, Yasuhiro was among the six survivors to escape the school. Yasuhiro and the others survived together in the apocalyptic world until they were found by the Future Foundation. They decided to join the Future Foundation to fight against despair and Future Foundation helped them to recover their school memories. Yasuhiro then became a member of the 14th Branch.
Yasuhiro was seen in the explanation of the Tragedy, along with the survivors of the Killing School Life as one of the people integral in stopping the Tragedy's mastermind, Junko Enoshima. Yasuhiro went to Towa City in a helicopter along with 19 other members of the Future Foundation.
He pretends to be airsick and runs off, as his real goal is in fact to find precious things to "acquire" in order to solve his eight million yen debt. While he's trying to rob a payphone, the children 's revolution begins and Monokumas start to attack.
The two manage to escape the Monokumas and then introduce themselves. Kanon learns that Yasuhiro is part of the Future Foundation, and seems shocked. He finds her quite attractive but pokes fun at her after she speaks with a gyaru slang.
He has brown skin with stubble on his chin and dark brown eyes. His dark brown hair is styled in dreadlocks that stick out as large points. He wears a brown haramaki and uses a yellow rope as his belt to hold up his large black pants that are rolled up past his ankles. He also wears sandals. On his left wrist is a beaded bracelet with the symbol for his Former High School on each bead. After joining the Future Foundation post-Killing School Life in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School , Yasuhiro wears a black suit with a white shirt and a loose grey tie, however the jacket is kept on his shoulders as well as having small glasses.
Written during a time when there was no officially sanctioned samurai fighting, the book grapples with the dilemma of maintaining a warrior class in the absence of war and reflects the author's nostalgia for a world that had disappeared before he was born. Hagakure was largely forgotten for two centuries after its composition, but it came to be viewed as the definitive guide of the samurai during the Pacific War. The book records Tsunetomo's views on bushido , the warrior code of the samurai. Hagakure is sometimes said to assert that bushido is really the "Way of Dying " or living as though one was already dead, and that a samurai must be willing to die at any moment in order to be true to his lord. His saying "the way of the warrior is death" was a summation of the willingness to sacrifice that bushido codified. After the Tokugawa shogunate suppressed the Shimabara Rebellion in , Japan experienced no warfare for about two centuries.
