Concept[edit | edit source]
The concept for Yukari is "She unites you all with her voice" (VOCALOIDに縁のある人達が音（月）を結ぶ).
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The kanji for Yukari's last name, Yuzuki (結月), is comprised of "musubu" (結ぶ) and "tsuki" (月). "Musubu" means "to tie," "bind," or "link," referring to her theme of uniting people with her voice. "Tsuki" means "moon," referring to her concept.
Yukari is a common female Japanese name. One possible meaning is "connection," once again referring to how she unites people. Another meaning is "violet," referring to her color scheme.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Yukari has purple eyes and lavender hair tied into two low pigtails - while the pigtails are long in length and reach her chest, the back of her hair is cut short. She has a pink hair accessory that glows, with the same accessory also being on either side of her hips.
She wears a sleeveless lavender tube dress that reaches her thighs. Over that, she wears a dark jacket with pink accents - the jacket is rabbit themed, as seen by the hoodie branching off into two long rabbit ears. She also wears lavender thigh high socks, the same color as her dress, and black flat shoes.
