Yuki got into Bell Liberty because of good luck and selflessness - he received someone else’s entrance paper by mistake and called to inform the school of the error. By chance, his call went to the director’s office, and the director was so impressed with his honesty that he invited Yuki to attend as well.
This means that like Keita, he has no special talent aside from luck. The game avoids the problem of 'ordinary boy at an extraordinary school' by making Yuki the student council president immediately after arriving. A strange man dressed as a ninja forces Yuki to accept a strange armband, which turns out to be 'the mark of the Ace' - simply having it makes the owner the legit student council president of the entire school!
But... the student council has lost all of its authority and does nothing but chores for the other clubs. Durak, the group led by Joker, is in charge of everything at the school - including the cafeteria, where student council members can't eat anything but plain udon and rice! Even the student council room is rundown and the furniture was taken by Durak! Is it even worth being the president?
Of course it is, because the student council president has one special piece of authority that can't be stolen away. Or can it? One day, the armband goes missing...
It's no coincidence that Yuki's name literally means 'courage.' He demonstrates his courage in every character route, either by standing up to people who threaten his potential love interest, or by objecting to that person's own negative thoughts about themselves. Despite this, it's not the fake courage we often see when a character is too confident or too perfect - Yuki has plenty of moments of self-doubt and worry, but still has the strength to act on his beliefs. This consistency of character plus his realistic and relatable internal monologues are what make Yuki such an excellent and enjoyable protagonist.
Yuki may look small and cute, but he's no pushover, and he won't hesitate to call people out when they're being unreasonable or cruel. He's also gentle when the situation calls for it, offering sincere sympathy and support for anyone who's hurting.
And he's gay af, even though he hasn't realized it yet. :3

As the protagonist and an outsider who has just come to Bell Liberty, Yuki doesn't have as many connections to other characters as the rest of the boys. However, he does have some very important relationships that were established when he was a child.
Kasahara Tomo - childhood friend
Tomo and Yuki were good friends as children, though neither one remembers their shared past. Yuki used to live near a public park and often went to play there. He and Tomo got to know each other after Tomo's older brother, Nao, collapsed from heatstroke at the park and was helped by Yuki's dad. After that, the two boys became good friends. They lost contact when Yuki's family moved away from the area near the park.
Suzubishi Nao - childhood friend
Tomo's older brother, a sickly boy with a heart condition. He often accompanied Tomo to the park and liked to sit and read while his brother played. After Yuki and Tomo became friends, Yuki got attached to Nao and even ended up calling him 'Nao-nii.' Later, Nao was adopted by a member of the Suzubishi family and became director of Bell Liberty. He invited Yuki to the school as a reward for his honesty in returning a wayward Platinum Paper, without realizing that they already had a connection.
character data sheet
The following information is a translation of the character data sheet that was provided on the preorder bonus CD. These character sheets are more like lists of random notes than a detailed character profile, so don't expect this to be terribly coherent. :3
Please be aware that these are early development notes and information may differ slightly from the finished game.
strong point: considerate, positive
weak point: naive, easily carried away
Super positive thinker. His saying is something like 'it'll work out somehow.' (Only when he himself is confronted with a problem. When it comes to other people's problems, he wouldn't dismiss them lightly.) He is optimistic to the point that it astonishes others.
Cheerful, takes jokes seriously (but can also go along, then point out the joke), quick to recover, honest, meek, has a sense of justice, a hard worker, gentle, won't turn down what is asked of him, not shy with strangers. He gets hungry often, but is not really a big eater. Lured by food. Loves bread. Always eating bread. His home is a bakery.
Often hungry. He has a good nose, so he often sniffs out food.
As soon as he transferred, he ended up accepting the mark of the student council president from the previous student council president (the original Ace), and because of that, he got stuck with becoming the student council president.
The current student council has been weakened, has no authority, and only does chores. The substantial authority is held by Joker's group. Because he joined the student council, he can't eat anything decent at the cafeteria, since the cafeteria is controlled by Joker's group. (He can eat somewhat decent food at the dorm dining hall.)
In middle school, he was in the basketball club. It was a popular club so there were lots of members. Because he was a reserve, he wasn't in very many matches. (But only when his parents had a chance to come watch, by a lucky coincidence, a regular player would leave a vacancy and he'd be in the match.)
