Biography

She is the girls' English and homeroom teacher (class 3), but a teacher with very unconventional methods and a rather close relationship with the class. Her students are casual enough to call her by her given name (Yukari-sensei in lieu of Tanizaki-sensei, with a few, mostly Tomo, addressing her as the extremely-informal Yukari-chan). Depending on the day, time, and her mood, she can be either a horrible tyrant or one of the sweetest, most touching teachers ever. Her behavior ranges from mercilessly teasing Chiyo and hitting students with blunt objects to kind and gentle words and simple, encouraging notes on tests telling students she believes in them. She is often selfish, irresponsible, miserly, and generally dysfunctional, and shamelessly expects her friend and fellow teacher, Minamo Kurosawa ("Nyamo"), to not only tolerate all of this, but to enable it. She becomes jealous when Nyamo receives nicer birthday presents from her students, and will even give her students study hall so that she can ditch them and go swimming at the school pool. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... Chiyo Mihama ), also known as Chiyo-chan, is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Azumanga Daioh. ... Minamo Nyamo Kurosawa Minamo Kurosawa ), also known as Nyamo ), normally called Kurosawa-sensei by her students, is a fictional character from the anime and manga series Azumanga Daioh. ...


Off the job she frequently drags Nyamo out on extensive drinking parties, which Nyamo usually has to pay for. In one episode, she refers to her sponsor, implying that she is an alcoholic, although she could have been referring to who would be paying for their excursion. She is very fond of Korean barbecue, which becomes the object of many of her extravagant wagers involving the class. She even becomes incredibly jealous whenever anyone has eaten expensive food such as snow crab or Matsusaka beef. She is also a huge fan of video games, and becomes angry when the store runs out of the newest game. A twelve-step program (or programme) is a fellowship which aims at the recovery of its members from the consequences of an addiction, a compulsion, or another harmful influence on their lives, with the help of the Twelve Steps. ... Yakiniku at a yakiniku-ya. ... Species include This crab is known by different names across the globe: In America, snow crab, opilio, and spider crab, as well as bairdi, and tanner crab In Canada, queen crab In Japan, Generally, ずわい蟹 (Zuwai gani) Fukui and Ishikawa Prefectures, えちぜん蟹 (Echizen gani) Kyoto, 松葉蟹 (Matsuba gani, lit. ... Matsusaka (松阪市; -shi; also Matsuzaka) is a city located in Mie, Japan. ...


Yukari's driving skills are infamous, with no concern for the rules of the road, people, other cars, signs, or the speed limit, and the many dents on her parents' car (called the "Yukarimobile") is evidence to that. Her insane driving has impacted Chiyo and Kaorin's psyches rather profoundly (severely scarring Chiyo in the process), and has even caused Sakaki to briefly lose her composure. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, Yukari loves to drive. The only one who can tolerate Yukari's driving is Tomo, who shares Yukari's love of destruction and mayhem.


Yukari and Nyamo are alumnae of the school the girls attend, and has even appeared at a Sports Festival in her old uniform (which led to a prostitution joke from Tomo in the manga). An alumn (with a silent n), alum, alumnus, or alumna is a former student of a college, university, or school. ... Whore redirects here. ... Tomo in a color insert from Azumanga Daioh. ...


Both Yukari and Tomo have similar obnoxious personalities: they are both boastful, jealous, delusional, lazy, and selfish. Rather than being hateful, though, they are amusing and likeable - one can see why their friends like them, even as they are annoyed by them. The balance between the dual natures of Yukari and Tomo's characters is a unique achievement of the author, and one of the peculiar charms of Azumanga Daioh.


Yukari can speak English fluently, and uses this ability to claim intellectual superiority over Nyamo. (Though the anime treats her speech as fluent, she has a very strong accent.) At one point in the manga, however, she tells her class that the only true purpose for studying English is to pass tests.


Yukari's car

Yukari car, also known as the Yukari-mobile (ゆかり車 Yukari-kuruma) sometimes seems to have a personality and history of its own. Technically, it belongs to Yukari's parents. At one time a nice silver Toyota Corolla, Yukari's reckless driving habits have turned it into a scarred, beaten vehicle suitable for a Mad Max film. Even a photo or the mere mention of the Yukari-mobile can cause terror and flashbacks for those who have ridden in it—though said survivors sometimes claim they no longer fear roller coasters. Chiyo in particular goes to extraordinary lengths to avoid riding in it or any other vehicle Yukari might possibly be driving. However, Tomo enjoys riding in it, showing she has some similarities to Yukari. The Toyota Corolla is a compact car produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota, which has become very popular throughout the world since the nameplate was first introduced in 1966. ... For other uses, see Mad Max (disambiguation). ...


Yukari's given name means 'related to (some place).'
