This post is part of a series of articles dedicated to the Quintessential Quintuplets. In this installment, we will be taking an in-depth look into Yotsuba Nakano and uncovering some little-known facts about her! If Yotsuba is your favorite sister, then keep reading, as we’ll be exploring her in great detail.
Yotsuba is funny and sweet and I always giggle at her moments in anime.
She is a beautiful genki girl even though we all know that genki girls are not as popular as tsundere girls like Nino. For those who don’t know what a genki girl is, it’s a popular anime trope portraying an overenergetic (school) girl.

Here are the promised 10 facts about Yotsuba Nakano!
#10 Her favorite animal is a camel
This has been confirmed in the Yotsuba Character Book by Haruba-sensei (the mangaka of the series).
Why a camel? Well, Haruba-sensei said that it’s because a camel’s face is funny, giving others smiles by simply being there.
#9 She can’t say NO to people
Yotsuba’s best trait is her kindness. She seemingly altruistically helps people and appears to be selfless.
#8 She is a genki girl
Yotsuba appears to be a naturally bubbly, optimistic, and active girl.
When you see and hear her, you instantly think to yourself: what a kawaii idiot!
However, behind this genki personality, there’s “darkness”. I am not going to spoil why she behaves the way she does but it’s not because she is a goofball by her nature. Let’s just say that she is the quint with the most inner demons.
#7 Yotsuba has perfect vision
She is the only known sister with excellent eyesight. Nino has horrible eyesight and wears contact lenses while Itsuki often sports glasses.
#6 She is extremely athletic
Yotsuba excels at sports. She is a good runner and has shown talent in other sports as well. In episode 2, she even fills in for a basketball game after Nino mentioned that the basketball team needs someone.
This makes her different from her sisters who are either plain bad or uninterested in physical activities, with the exception of Ichika who jogs daily.
#5 Her height is 165 cm
This has been revealed in Manga Volume 9 – Extra Bonus Comic.
The average height for a Japanese woman is 158.8 cm, so she is quite tall for a Japanese girl.
#4 She is a third-year student at Asahiyama High School
This is the senior high school that Yotsuba and all other Quintuplets attend, along with the male protagonist of the series.
Note: from Chapter 69
#3 Yotsuba’s name’s meaning
Yotsuba means “four” and “leaf”. She is the fourth sister, so it’s logical.
#2 Her blood type is A
People with blood type A are described as well-organized. They are stubborn & get stressed out easily. They are usually kind, diligent, and sometimes tense.
#1 Yotsuba is 17 years old
Yotsuba, like all her sisters, was born on May 5, which makes her zodiac sign Taurus. Taureans prioritize consistency and reliability in all areas of their lives.
