Background[edit | edit source]
Yoshika is from Kouchi Prefecture. When she was younger, she almost drowned after swimming out to sea, giving her aquaphobia.
After having awakened to the ability to receive oracles, she selected Koori Chikage, one of the original Heroes.
For most of her life, her name was always mispronounced due to having similar writing as "Mika". When she met Chikage, however, she correctly stated her name as Yoshika, and she has held her in high regard ever since.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Yoshika is a girl with long braids ending in loops, and a larger looped bun on the back of her head. Her hair is tied with red scrunchies. She wears a green and white pleated school uniform and glasses.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Yoshika is rather soft-spoken compared to her fellow mikos, but is not afraid to speak her mind. Being from a family that practiced different worship practices than the Taisha, she often gets in trouble for her religious habits and beliefs.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
She has the standard abilities of a miko, able to receive oracles from the Shinju and guide Heroes along their quest.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Yoshika is introduced as purifying herself in a bathhouse, due to her aquaphobia. She, Masuzu, and Uesato Hinata later have a game night together in her shared room. Yoshika later talks with Aki Masuzu after the death of Anzu and Tamako, successfully urging her to move forward.
Yoshika discovered Chikage was to be sent back to her hometown soon. Knowing this would not fare well for her, Yoshika argued with the Taisha priests about their choices for Chikage. She was put in solitary confinement as punishment for speaking out against them. Yoshika was well-tended to however, stating the only real consequence was that she had no television.
Karasuma Kumiko then arrives, and tells Yoshika the details of Chikage's recent events and her fall in battle. She decides to find Chikage's family and attend her home funeral, forcing herself to wade through a flooded street to make it there. Upon finding that her father had no intention of a proper burial for his daughter, she takes Chikage's body and, with the help of Kumiko, brings and puts her to rest at her family shrine, leaving the Taisha organization.
However, at the request of Uesato Hinata, Yoshika agreed to help her take over the Taisha organization and returned as a Miko. She, along with the other Mikos, came as witnesses to Hinata's "Oracle". Because of this, she would not be erased from their records like Chikage was, and was remembered as a sacred martyr up to 301 D.E.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her grave resides in the Monument to the Fallen Legends.
- She is aquaphobic, and refuses to take purification showers under the waterfalls like the rest of the Mikos. Eventually, she forces herself to overcome her fear by wading through a flooded street to reach Chikage's home.
- According to Akashiro Aoi, Yoshika was initially thought to be Uesato Hinata's friend in Taisha like Aki Masuzu when Nogi Wakaba is a Hero was serializing, but she was not depicted as it was too far off from the main theme. As a girl who originally have some connection with the shrine, she is a character who question the way Taisha operates. As for the design, he created a character profile and then let BUNBUN see and draw the character based on it. Thanks for reading into and drawing out her personality and such so well! If it is to say when did the person Hanamoto Yoshika become a sharp character, then I think it is when this design was done.
