Yotsuba Nakano profile.

Yotsuba has short, straight hair that stops just around her neck. She is portrayed to have light orange hair color throughout Volume 1 to Volume 4. Her notable accessory is a bunny ear-shaped ribbon, which can change forms depending on her emotions.[5] Like her sisters, she has dark blue eyes, an average height, a well-endowed figure, and large breasts.

Yotsuba wears her uniform with a large butterfly-shaped tie and wears a sports bag.[6][7] It is revealed by Ichika that she still uses her panties from elementary school days. She uses small-shaped pajamas.

Personality

Yotsuba is an active, cheerful and easygoing girl. She talks in a loud, spontaneous and sometimes absent-minded manner. She is the type of person who can't say no to people who need help,[8] and is mostly seen helping people either directly and indirectly.

While cheerful on the outside and towards others, Yotsuba also harbors feelings of inferiority towards her sisters and her own abilities. Her inferiority complex started to grow when she met Fuutarou when they were children, and caught him talking to her sister all the while noticing that he did not know it wasn't her. She had made several attempts to fix her complex (such as putting her iconic ribbons and trying to excel in extra-curricular activities), which in turn made her desire to be different from her sisters grow stronger. While portrayed as a bad liar early on, she is later shown to have some skill in lying herself; being able to hide her true identity to Fuutarou all the while being able to maintain their relationship, at least when together.

Ability

Yotsuba is good at sports, the basketball club even asked her to join the team. Yotsuba's excellent sports skill is shown, she scores 7.9 seconds for a 50m sprint.[9] Yotsuba is getting praised as a skilled player by a basketball club member.[10] She also has excellent stamina and is a good runner. Yotsuba is the only known sister with excellent eyesight (Itsuki Nakano wears glasses and Nino Nakano uses contacts). Yotsuba got a part-time job in cleaning-related work.[11] Yotsuba is good at festival games.[12] Yotsuba's excellent eyesight is shown again, she is able to recognize the nametag on Nino's uniform from the second floor.[13] Miku Nakano will notice if Yotsuba is lying to her,[14] because according to Fuutarou Uesugi, Yotsuba is bad at lying.[15] Yotsuba's poor academic abilities are first hinted and shown, she gets a zero for a test.[16] Yotsuba remarks that she is the one most likely to repeat a year.[17] Yotsuba's excellent eyesight and kind attitude are shown for the first time, she notices a test paper Fuutarou dropped and returns it to him.[16]

Yotsuba has an excellent sense of smell.[18] Apparently she has a green thumb.[19]

Yotsuba states that she is the dumbest among the sisters.[20] Among the sister, Yotsuba is ranked the lowest one with her strongest subject is Japanese. Yotsuba is bad at lying, though she states that she could do it if she really tries to lie. Yotsuba is good at Summer Festival games.
