He also expresses deeper feelings towards Sawaki than are first apparent.

More Information:
Voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga. Yuuki is a transvestite in addition to his gender dysphoric feelings. Both these attitudes/actions can be seen, not so much as a homosexual tendencies, but as a dissatisfaction with what he is told he must be and what he must do with his life. This is a very fundamental adolescent rebellion in a very controversial guise. Yuuki's transvestite dress of choice is a popular style in Japan called Gothic Lolita.
