Main CharactersEdit

See list of Ronin Yoshino characters.

Akuba, Someiyoshino is the protagonist and title character of the manga. She's stubborn, outspoken and full of pride which often gets her into tight situations. Yoshino doesn't like being ordered around or doing any hard work, such as bathing her horse Iteza and making Kagekiri do the work[2].

Kagekiri is Yoshino's retainer (a servent). He's honest, very loyal and protective towards Yoshino but can be potentionally self-destructive. Kagekiri was once a violent yokai, but when he met Yoshino, she changed his view on life and for that he feels eternally grateful[3].

Takemaru, Arashi is the Daimyo (samurai warlord) and the main antagnoist of the manga. He's a disciplined, career-oriented and authoritive man who's practical and focused on his goals. Takemaru owns most of the land and desires to claim the rest of Fujiwara Province for himself[4].
