[edit] About

[edit] Appearence

Yuzu is somewhat short because of her age and has short light-brown hair. Yuzu also usually wears a pin in her hair. Her eyes are wide and brown. Yuzu has a somewhat frail appearence compared to her sister Karin Kurosaki.

[edit] Past

Not much is known about Yuzu's past apart from the fact that her mother, Masaki Kurosaki was killed by a Hollow.

[edit] Personality

Yuzu is the motherly figure in the Kurosaki family, most likely because of her mothers death. Yuzu is very bright and cheery and is almost the complete opposite of Karin. Yuzu is somewhat weak physically and her family protects her from harm multiple times in the anime and manga. Yuzu also gets quite excited over seeing Kon, whom she believes to be just a doll. Kon must hide his frustration while Yuzu happily dresses him in strange outfits.

[edit] Abilities

[edit] Traits

Yuzu stands out in her family because she is the only one of her siblings who can not fully see Spirits and Hollows. Instead she can see see the faint outline of the Spirits and Hollows and can sense their presence.

[edit] Anime

[edit] Soul Society Arc

Yuzu plays a large role in the story in the beginning of the anime and manga. Yuzu and her family is the reason why Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, to protect them. A Hollow senses Ichigo's high spirit energy and attacks his family. The Hollow strikes Karin and her father, Isshin Kurosaki, and then continues to grab Yuzu and carry her outside. It is then where Rukia Kuchiki frees her from his grasp and is caught mid-air by Ichigo. Yuzu was not harmed much by the Hollow, but fainted.

Later in the Arc Yuzu sees a spirit clearly for the first time inside the body of a cat, who Yuzu finds and names Raku. Later in the episode Raku saves Yuzu from a Hollow and runs away for completing his task in helping her.

[edit] Relationships

[edit] Ichigo Kurosaki

Ichigo and Yuzu in their home
Like Ichigo has with Karin, he has a strong sense of protection over Yuzu because they are family. The most obvious times of this protection is when Ichigo tries to save Yuzu from a Hollow, but fails to do so. This eventually leads to him becoming a Soul Reaper to help protect his family.
