Spoiler warning!
This Wiki contains detailed information regarding the Girls und Panzer universe.
Proceed with Caution!


Yuzu Koyama (小山 柚子 Koyama Yuzu) is the driver of the Turtle Team and one of the three secondary protagonists of Girls und Panzer.

Profile

Yuzu is a third year student from Ooarai Girls Academy. She serves as the vice president of the school's Student Council. She's also the driver of Turtle Team's Panzer 38(t) which is later converted into a Jagdpanzer 38 (t) or Hetzer.

Appearance

Yuzu is a well-endowed girl with dark brown hair, which she usually wears in a medium ponytail, and dark brown eyes.

Personality

Yuzu is well known for her kind and gentle personality, and is usually the one who ends up doing all the work while Anzu slacks off and Momo gives orders; she seems to tolerate it, although she has shown some desire for help (as when the newfound tanks were cleaned). She has a close relationship with the rest of the Student Council, having served together for some time and had many profound moments. Her relationship with Momo is particularly close, and she often refers to her as 'Momo-chan', a nickname Momo seems to dislike. She also on occasion teases Momo about her poor accuracy during matches.

Despite her kind and patient demeanor, Yuzu can be pushed to the point of genuine anger; an occurrence which occurs about once a year, according to Anzu. During this time, she basically sulks and ignores the person vexing her, not unlike a child expressing displeasure at someone. However, her kind personality invariably wins out, and she can be placated by the offender being deliberately kind to her. In Momo's case, during Chapter 28 of Motto Love Love Sakusen Desu!, this was by buying Chaux Ice Cream Puffs for Yuzu to eat.

Background

Yuzu is the Ooarai Girls Academy's Student Council vice-president, together with Anzu and Momo responsible for the revival of her school's sensha-dō team in a gamble to forestall the school's closure due to financial problems (although at the beginning this is not revealed).

During the semi-final round of the 63rd National High School Sensha-dō Tournament, competing against Pravda Girls High School, Yuzu, as driver of Turtle Team's 38(t), was instructed by Anzu to close to point-blank range with Pravda's vanguard tanks to allow their 37mm gun to be effective against the heavy Russian armor. In that melee Turtle Team managed to immobilize two of Pravda's tanks and damage two more before themselves being hit and immobilised by Pravda's vice-commander Nonna. That match also proved that Yuzu is just about as good as Mako at driving tanks, when the situation demands it.

Etymology

  • The name Yuzu means "grapefruit, pomelo, citrus fruit" (柚子).
    • All 3 members of the Turtle Team have fruit-based names.
  • Yuzu's surname Koyama means "small" (小) (ko) and "mountain, hill" (山) (yama).

Trivia

  • Yuzu is considered the Ms. Fanservice of the show, mostly due to her performance in the second episode, when she somehow ended up cleaning tanks in a bikini for no apparent reason.
  • Yuzu has a younger sister and four younger brothers.
  • In the first Das Finale OVA it is revealed that both Yuzu and Anzu Kadotani applied to Shimofusadai National University, which offers an admission office entrance exam.
