Calm, collected, and cool, Yusuke shows methodical, intelligent, and elegant behavior. He holds his mentor, Madarame in high regard. Having been sheltered all his life, Yusuke can be quite socially-awkward. It comes to the point of naïveté. Sometimes, it may rub off on people as him being creepy or intrusive. When he tries to find a female model for his work, he can appear to be a bit of a stalker. He seems unaware of this until told.
When first introduced, Yusuke appears to be an honor student. He takes up an Art Course in Kosei High School while also learning under Ichiryusai Madarame. Orphaned at a young age, he lives with his mentor and continues painting with him. His mother was also a painter that learned under the same mentor.
His debut occurs when Yusuke approaches Ann Takamaki. Unfortunately, protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto mislabel him as a “stalker,” which causes a bit of a ruckus. He asks Ann to become a model for his next painting, inviting her to go to his master’s art exhibition to consider his offer. Upon learning, however, that Madarame is a fraud, the Phantom Thieves decide to accept Yusuke’s offer so they can investigate Madarame.
