Yusa Nishimori (西森 柚咲 Nishimori Yusa), also known as Yusarin and born Yusa Kurobane (黒羽 柚咲 Kurobane Yusa), is one of the main character in the series. She is a member of the student council as well as the the lead vocalist of the band How-Low-Hello where she is a teen idol of sorts and the younger sister of Misa Kurobane.  


Yusa Nishimori

Yusa is a young girl with thigh-length blonde hair that is tied in a ponytail on the left side of her head and light-blue eyes.

She is usually seen wearing her standard dark red uniform.


Unlike Misa Kurobane, Yusa's personality is often displayed as a cute and innocent girl who is also very helpful, often sending out "magic spells" that help people in their current situation. This tradition started during a segment on a TV show called "Move Asa", on which she is actively participating.


Yusa has the ability of Spiritism where she is seemingly capable of channeling and/or conversing with the dead. If the spirit possessing her has special powers, the spirit can use it through her body. For example, when Misa Kurobane (Yusa's older sister) possesses Yusa's body, she is able to use Pyrokinesis, which is the ability to control fire. This ability is incomplete however, as she often uncontrollably channels Misa. When this occurs, her appearance changes, causing her eye color to change from blue to red. Upon regaining control of her body, Yusa retains no memories of what happened while the spirit possessed her body.

Yusa has lost the ability of Spiritism after willingly giving her powers to Yū Otosaka via his Looting ability, making her finally learn about her ability thanks to Misa's letter.


  • The name Yusa means "grapefruit, pomelo, citrus fruit" (柚) (yu) and "blossom" (咲) (sa).
  • Yusa's surname Nishimori means "west" (西) (nishi) and "forest" (森) (mori).
    • Her real surname Kurobane means "black" (黒) (kuro) and "feather" (羽) (hane/bane).
      • The reason why Yusa had her surname changed to Nishimori is because her agency thought that Kurobane was not appropriate for an idol.


  • Yusa shares some similarities with Shiori Sekine from Angel Beats! as they both have long blonde hair and blue eyes.
  • Yusa has a cameo appearance on the sixth episode on Kamisama ni Natta Hi but her face is only shown on Jojiro's t-shirt
