Yukari Sakuma (
Yukari is childhood friends with Kaede Shimizu, and the two have sat near each other in class through junior high. Although Kaede is the more successful student, she comments Yukari is responsible for helping her, both academically and in waking her up for school.
After attending the Sakuragaoka High School festival and hearing its Light Music Club perform, she is inspired to be part of a Light Music Club of her own. Although her school does not have one, there is a Light Music Appreciation Society that she and Kaede ultimately join.
Despite having no experience with the instrument, she chooses to play the drums after being impressed by the Sakuragaoka High club's drummer.
