Appearance

Plot

Concept art

Shouko acts somewhat indifferent when Ayako Kouchi states that making reviews is pointless and argues with Mayaka Ibara, but is seen quietly lecturing Ayako for being too harsh. She also tries to comfort Mayaka, telling her that Ayako wasn't being serious. When Mayaka asks how she knows she just says "because Ayako and I are friends."

Etymology

  • The name Shouko means "still" (尚) (shou) and "child" (子) (ko).
  • Shouko's surname Yuasa means "hot water" (湯) (yu) and "shallow" (浅) (asa).

Trivia

  • Shouko has shown to be quite mischievous:
    • In Episode 13, when Mayaka Ibara was arguing with Ayako Kouchi, Shouko took advantage of the drama by making a banner that says "Girls at War" in front of Manga Club's room to attract more people instead of intervening.
      • Even though she was taking advantage, she knew that Ayako wasn't serious. It's quite apparent that she only did it for the sake of Manga Club, and meant no harm.
