Yukinari Sasaki (佐々木 雪成 Sasaki Yukinari), nicknamed Puninari by Kazuharu Fukuyama, is the protagonist as well as one of the major characters in the manga and anime series Girls Bravo. He is also the only recurring male character apart from Kazuharu Fukuyama.

Appearance Edit

Yukinari has blue hair which is always seen in his distinctive hairstyle and blue eyes. In his most of his common appearance, he wears his school uniform which consists simply of navy-blue trousers and a navy-blue jacket, which has light blue highlights to it. He wears this outfit most of the time, even when he's away from school, usually because his friends rarely give him the opportunity to change. Despite this, he shows no discomfort in wearing it and he never wears this outfit on weekends or when going on trips away from home, but the outfits he wears during these times are never fixed.

Biography Edit

Yukinari is well known in the series for his gynophobia, a fear of women. He has been teased and maltreated by girls, including Kirie Kojima (Yukinari's best friend) during his childhood. As a result, he has developed an allergic reaction to them as he breaks out in hives whenever he comes in contact with one, but the only girl who does not cause him to do this is Miharu Sena Kanaka. Because of this, Yukinari eventually develops a crush on her which grows as the series progresses. Exactly how their relationship resolves is different in the anime and the manga. In the anime, it is unclear how their relationship went on. In the manga, it is implied that Yukinari and Miharu eventually got married (which now makes her Miharu Sena Sasaki).


  • The name Yukinari means "luck, favor" (幸) (yuki) and "too, also" (也) (nari).
  • Yukinari's surname Sasaki means "help, aid" (佐) (sa and sa) and "tree, wood" (木) (ki).
  • Yukinari was cured of his allergy to females in both the manga and the anime. The difference is that in the manga, it was revealed that he was really hooked up to a virtual reality simulator built by Fukuyama. In the anime, he was truly cured of his condition, at least temporarily (he started becoming allergic again when Yukina became infatuated with him).
  • In a reversal of fortune from another series, Mamiko Noto (Yukinari's seiyu) voices Elfen Lied's resident (sometimes hated) tsundere Yuka, who often confounds series lead Kouta with her sugar and ice antics.
  • Tomoka Lana Jude nicknames Yukinari "Short Stuff" due to him being short. And Maharu Sena Kanaka nicknames him "Yukki" because it could be much easier for her to call his name.
