Summary

A devoted and gentlemanly Magical Girl who came to Kamihama as a Puella Care (Traveling Coordinator). Livia discovered the power of adjustment. The spirit of service is strong in her and she has a good reputation surrounding her, but her attitude is completely calculating. She was taught "the means to live" by Livia.

Doppel Description

The Doppel of courtship. Its form is a tower. The master of this emotion once had love engraved within her, albeit tied to chains of grief. But after having carved part of herself away, she cannot directly feel it, and lives on with hollow freedom in a wide-open world. This Doppel is likewise unable to sense the love that it holds within. It devotedly seeks out those who will treat it with care, and upon finding someone whose magic or environment resembles its own, it captures them with its opened ribs and mercilessly attempts to squeeze them into itself. But no matter how hard this Doppel tries to incorporate its target, it can never fill itself with that which it seeks.

Side Story

The story begins not from Yozuru's, but Mifuyu Azusa's perpsective; Ever since the arrival of Puella Care, she suspects its members to be up to no good. She first begins tailing Yozuru, currently tending to Puella Care's trailer. She then watches her take hold of a book and grinning to herself after reading the contents inside. From that reaction, Mifuyu concludes Yozuru is up to no good. After she takes her leave with the book in hand, Mifuyu closely follows.

Yozuru first stops at Banbanzai; Tsuruno Yui's father recognizes her as a regular, and serves her breakfast. After eating, Yozuru gives her compliments to the chef, which seemingly moves him to tears. Confused at his reaction, Yozuru checks her book again, wondering if she'd done something wrong to make him cry. Meanwhile, Mifuyu believes Yozuru intentionally caused grief to Tsuruno's father, but then concludes her reaction as too bewildered to have done that on purpose. After Yozuru leaves, Mifuyu continues following her.

Yozuru goes shopping, and gets positive reactions from all vendors around. Mifuyu first hypothetizes that Yozuru has the ability to manipulate people's feelings, but then dismisses that theory because she is a coordinator. Yozuru then gets approached by a pharmacist's daughter, who asks her to play the piano. Yozuru complies, and her performance leaves a deep impression on everyone, confusing Mifuyu further as she begins thinking she is from some high class family. Yozuru then reunites with Livia Medeiros and Sudachi Sawa. After a brief discussion, Sudachi blows Mifuyu's cover by having Yozuru direct her attention to her. She first thinks about fleeing, but then decides to try the direct approach to getting to know Yozuru better, formally introducing herself after an apology. Yozuru believes she gave Mifuyu the impression of not being approachable, which Mifuyu denies. Livia decides leaving Yozuru be with Mifuyu so the two get to know each other better, but after a verbal pause between the two of them, Mifuyu immediately begins believing again they're plotting behind her back. Nonetheless, Mifuyu lets herself be guided around by Yozuru.


Arriving at Puella Care's HQ, Yozuru serves Mifuyu coffee and cake, but Mifuyu immediately thinks both are poisoned, remembering Mitama Yakumo's horrible cooking. After constant hesitation about eating what she was offered, Yozuru takes it upon herself to taste-test the food for Mifuyu before she could even ask. Mifuyu decides to ultimately try it herself, and is amazed at the pleasant taste of it all. Mifuyu asks if such service isn't excessive for even a coordinator, but Yozuru replies she merely pours her hobbies into her work. However, Yozuru quickly switches back the topic and asks Mifuyu once more why she wanted to talk to her.

Mifuyu asks about Puella Care, but specifically what it means to Yozuru. Yozuru replies that she feels free in this establishment, which makes Mifuyu recall her wish and express envy at Yozuru's feelings. Yozuru asks if Mifuyu has never known freedom, to which Mifuyu replies positively. Yozuru then asks how, and Mifuyu begins explaining her familial background, having been raised in a strict household in Mizuna Ward. Yozuru replies that her families are much the same, despite her own family not being as ancient as Mifuyu's. She then explains the freest she ever felt is when she was able to grieve for her un-free self, which leaves Mifuyu confused.

Before Yozuru can explain more, a customer comes in. The 'customers' reveal themselves to be members of Promised Blood, and label Mifuyu one of the Magius, to which she replies she's a member of the Kamihama Magia Union nowadays. They hold themselves back from assaulting Mifuyu since they're on neutral territory, but Mifuyu briefly sasses them, which ticks them off. However, before they can do anything, Yozuru attempts to intervene, but all she can do is make funny faces, which bewilders all three other girls, and saddens Yozuru. One of the PB girls forces the other to apologize to Yozuru, but the coordinator replies she should be the one apologizing. Mifuyu decides she's seen enough after the PB girls leave, and takes her leave as well, concluding that Yozuru is a very gentle person.

Yozuru reunites with Livia and Sudachi later on, and they discuss the latest happening. Yozuru thinks she needs more training, as she'd tried to make jokes to defuse the situation, but failed to make even one. Livia insists Yozuru should continue trying to put Mifuyu's mind at ease, but Yozuru retorts that she lacks the kindness required to dispel her suspicion. Livia says that's why she's provided her with the book she carries around all the time, which she is thankful for. Livia explains that without kindness, you cannot understand the other party's feelings, which makes someone a poor coordinator. Sudachi's stomach rumbles. Yozuru picks up her book, and quickly makes the conclusion that stomach rumbling -> hungry -> but it's too early in the evening -> which means it's snack time. Yozuru decides preparing Sudachi and Livia a few sweets, Livia praising her for the good work. Yozuru then narrates that she lacks kindness because she wished it so.


A flashback begins; it's a younger Yozuru's life with her mother, describing her past self as "gentle, yet not free". She narrates she loved her mother, but for no particular reason other than she was her mother. A young Yozuru decides gifting her mother a picture drawing for her birthday, but she remembers her piano lesson the day after, then swimming classes, all of which her mother registered her to. On her mother's birthday, Yozuru says she has a surprise for her, but her mother guesses it's the past test's result. Yozuru shows her the portrait anyways, but her mother criticizes it a little - her lashes are shorter than this, and her nose is too high. Yozuru then shows her the test results, which severely disappoints her mother. She then guesses the picture drawing took priority over the test, to which the young Yozuru shamefully nods. Irate, she grabs Yozuru's drawing and rips it to pieces.

She continues narrating more things about her mother, sprinkled with brief scenes of her past life; She's divorced since long and had raised Yozuru alone for a long time. Her job forced her to come home late at night, and Yozuru guesses she slotted her in that many activities so she never had time to realize the loneliness surrounding her. Sometimes, she would be gentle as they come, but sometimes, she would feel anxious, compare Yozuru to other children and turn strict. Such strictness even escalated to physical abuse, which managed to silence the young Yozuru at the time. However, she narrates that, when she reached teenagehood, she began talking back to her mother and standing up to this overexertion, beginning to do her own choices, shocking her mother. She was free from her grasp this way, but she would hear her mother lament every day about where she'd gone wrong. Later on, her mother was killed, run over by a truck, but the road was so unobstructed such an incident should never have happened. Yozuru describes that moment as when she finally obtained her freedom for real, but whenever she thought about it, she could never stop crying.

With the insurance counselor, Yozuru is given a large sum of money. The counselor deduces Yozuru's mother must have been only concerned for her well-being, and must have been a great parent. Yozuru prepares herself to move to her uncle's house, packing her things and sorting through her clothes and other things in the apartment - until she falls on a diary kept up by her mother, detailing everything about Yozuru from the moment of her birth, even until her teenage years. Yozuru, baffled by her discovery, is suddenly submerged by regret, believing herself to be a horrible daughter, and begins to blame herself for living. She begins planning her own suicide, when Kyubey appears.

Kyubey offers Yozuru a contract. Yozuru asks if anything she wants can come true. Kyubey replies positively, even to the point of bringing someone back from the dead. Yozuru briefly ponders bringing her mother back to life, but says it won't change things. She then asks if, inversely, Kyubey can kill someone she hates, to which he nods. Yozuru then begins formulating her wish - to kill her... So that she continues on living. She formulated her wish this way because she believed her own end to be too easy of an escape route. As a result, Kyubey erased her guilt, 'killing' her kindness to allow her to live still.


Back to the present, Livia praises Yozuru for her hard work, but reminds her that her inability to pick up emotions will make it more than a tough task for her to perfect her coordination skills. Yozuru says it's no problem, and her mother had trained her to face worse than that. She then declares that since her life was saved, she intends to keep on living to the fullest of her abilities.
