Yugiri Icon
The erotic zombie with bewitching make-up, with her long haired tied to a knot.

The legendary courtesan who was there during the Meiji's restoration from Bakumatsu era. Thanks to her open-mindedness and calm demeanor, she is neither swayed by the fact she was resurrected in a world 150 years later, her surroundings nor herself being a zombie.

Yugiri (ゆうぎり, Yūgiri?) was a girl from the Meiji era (明治時代, Meiji-jidai). She's also a member of the idol group Franchouchou.

She is titled as the Legendary Courtesan (伝説の花魁, Densetsu no Oiran)


Yūgiri has light auburn hair with most of it being brought up into a bow-like shape on-top of her head and two long strands hanging over her shoulders. Her bangs are mostly center-parted with one-bit curling to the right. Yūgiri also has light rust eyes, and like the other zombies, grayish-blue skin. She also has a scar across her neck.

Normally, Yūgiri wears a kimono-like outfit; with the top a white and orange checkered pattern, a purple collar, and a forest-green skirt. She also supports dark purple leggings and dark grey boots. As an Idol, Yūgiri wears a light red shirt with green dots and the number "5" written on it. She also wears a bright red skirt with white frills.


Yūgiri appears to be a very calm and traditional girl, likely because of the time period she lived in. As a result, she appears to calmly accept and conform to the changes in modern society.

She tends to slap someone and lecture them on an answer or revelation they already know and about to answer.


Yūgiri is a mysterious beauty. Her presence in the story thus far has been rather minor, and up until the very end her history and background have remained a mystery. There are some hints to who she truly is given in a conversation between Kotaro and the mysterious bartender at the bar that Kotaro frequents.

Throughout the show, Yugiri has been a pillar of confidence in for the rest of Franchouchou, even though she is from a period so far removed from modern technology that she often has no idea what is going on.


Courtesan (Oiran)

As her title suggests, Yugiri was a courtesan in the Meiji Era while alive, specifically an Oiran. An Oiran, though a type of Yūjo (prostitute) were more so entertainers than physical pleasures. This is probably why Kōtarō resurrected her in the first place as she had experience and skills as an entertainer before.


As evident in episode 2, Yugiri has incredible skill on the instrument called a shamisen, able to play fast and move her fingers around the neck of the instrument with high speed and skill.
