A magical girl who is reckless and full of energy. She comes from a historic, honorable family and she will always respect and admire her grandfather and great-grandfather who guided it to prosperity. On the other hand, in the present day where the Yui household has fallen into ruin, she struggles greatly to try and restore its name, and for that purpose, her aim is to become the strongest magical girl of all. “These are words I love: We won’t know if we don’t give it a try! Leaving things to chance isn’t good? If we stopped before that, nothing would happen!”
The Doppel of harmony. Its form is ham. The master of this emotion is quite dissatisfied with her Doppel’s appearance. Its character, too, is another source of distrust for her. In contrast to its master’s desire to achieve great success through her own efforts, this Doppel simply produces endless wealth to satisfy the greed of its master’s relatives, attempting to protect what is only a temporary family harmony. This Doppel’s master considers it to be in total opposition to her noble goal, and would rather not have anybody find out about its vulgar appearance. However, to protect her family’s harmony– however temporary it may be– she may very well find herself in need of this Doppel’s power some day.
Tsuruno finishes a practice fight with Rena Minami. She then challenges Momoko Togame and Kaede Akino but the three girls are reluctant to fight her. Tsuruno says she has to train more to become stronger. When Momoko asks Tsuruno why she wants to be strong, Tsuruno explains why she became a magical girl. Her great-grandfather set up a Chinese restaurant, which her grandfather made into the number one place in Kamihama, or so Tsuruno says. However, when her father took over, the restaurant's ratings and customers dropped. Meanwhile, her grandmother and mother are concerned only about luxuries, to the point where they tried to sell the keepsakes of Tsuruno's grandfather and great-grandfather simply because they wanted to buy a car.
When offered a contract, Tsuruno wished to win the 800 million yen grand prize in the lottery. However, her grandmother and mother took the money and ran away on a luxury passenger cruise. Tsuruno still insists they're just on a trip. She claims that she wants to be strong, because she believes her grandfather and great-grandfather were strong as well. When Rena points out that Tsuruno's strength might be different, Tsuruno claims her grandfather used to say that all human strength is the same at the root. She thinks if she becomes strong and energizes her family, all her problems will be solved. She says it's her duty to revive the Yui family, which used to be high class.
Tsuruno challenges Rena again, but Rena shows her something she found on the internet. Apparently there's a person in Kamihama that gives advice. She suggests Tsuruno go see that person in order to become stronger. Tsuruno decides she'll go there the next day and leaves. Meanwhile, Momoko's group are relieved to not deal with Tsuruno. The next day, Tsuruno heads to a stand called "Emiri's Room". Akira Shinobu then shows Tsuruno to the counselor, Emiri Kisaki.
Emiri tells Tsuruno to talk to her, saying when people do so they feel refreshed. She says she loves talking to people herself, and built the advice stand because everyone suggested she make one. Tsuruno decides to leave, thinking Emiri can't help, but Akira asks her to stay. Tsuruno decides to tell the two her goal. Emiri says that Tsuruno should train - which is not the same as exercise. Emiri says that exercise is like practicing, but training is supposed to be super-hard - or so she read in a manga once. Tsuruno, to Akira's surprise, understands what Emiri was saying. Tsuruno figures that instead of fighting others, she should be fighting herself.
When Tsuruno asks Emiri how to do that, Emiri introduces Akira as someone who is super strong at karate. Akira protests, but Emiri insists that Tsuruno should go to Akira's place. Akira is forced to acquiesce. Later, Akira and Tsuruno track down a lost dog. Tsuruno asks if Akira usually finds lost animals. Akira explains that people ask her to do things and she can't say no. Tsuruno thinks that people counting on her makes Akira strong. Akira admits that she can't think of another way to train Tsuruno, but Tsuruno is happy with it. Suddenly Tsuruno sees a dog, and runs over someone's home garden to catch it. While the dog is returned, the owners of the home got mad at Tsuruno and Akira.
Tsuruno apologizes for what she did. Akira says it's alright, and tells Tsuruno she thinks there's someone more suited to be a teacher. The next day she introduces Tsuruno to Meiyui Chun. Akira claims Meiyui is strong at kenpou. Tsuruno asks to be trained, but Meiyui says she doesn't have enough experience in kung fu. She also says her master would be upset if she taught others. Tsuruno insists she'll do anything. Akira admits she brought Tsuruno to Meiyui because Akira didn't have confidence in herself. Meiyui acquiesces, and brings Tsuruno to a factory.
Introducing Tsuruno to the factory manager, Meiyui says that Tsuruno will work at the factory part time. Tsuruno's job is to carry heavy items. Tsuruno quickly goes to work. Meiyui is surprised by Tsuruno's strength. The factory manager tells Meiyui he's happy she introduced Tsuruno to them. Meiyui thanks the manager for his help, but the manager says they've been indebted to the Soukaihou for a long time. Later on, Tsuruno leaves the factory and is met by Yachiyo Nanami. Tsuruno bursts into tears.
It turns out that while working at the factory Tsuruno tripped and the parts she was carrying scattered. Everyone told her it was alright, but that made Tsuruno feel worse. Tsuruno says she hasn't accomplished anything, and is terrified she'll lose her restaurant and family. Yachiyo tells her to calm down and relax. She tells Tsuruno to take care of the little things instead of worrying about the big picture. She claims if Tsuruno accomplishes small things she'll likely be rewarded for them.
The next day, Tsuruno returns to Emiri's stand in order to apologize. She's greeted by Akira, who is there with Meiyui. Tsuruno apologizes to them for what happened at the factory, but Meiyui reveals the factory manager wants Tsuruno to come back and help them out again. Akira also says that the owner of the lost dog they found was very happy she got it back, as the dog was practically her only family. Surprised by the praise, Tsuruno accepts Meiyui's offer to help again. Later, Tsuruno tells Yachiyo what happened, and decides the training is a success. She challenges Yachiyo to a fight, but Yachiyo is not interested. Yachiyo says she'll call Momoko's group and runs off. Tsuruno wonders where Rena is.

An old Chinese restaurant where the shadow of the downtown remains.
