Asako Kusakabe (日下部 麻子, Kusakabe Asako) was Yuuji's former master. She took charge of raising Yuuji when his parents passed away. She had died a year before Yuuji enrolled in Mihama Academy. After her death, her friend, JB, became Yuuji’s guardian. Yuuji once said “She had a rough personality”. She is now cremated and has her grave stone on the mountains in Yamanashi Prefecture alongside John where she and Yuuji used to live.
Asako was a tall and attractive woman, who usually wore her dark blue hair in a ponytail. Her usual attire consisted of an A-shirt that is white at the piece at the back of her neck to the top of her breasts. She also wore black pants and black boots. She has been seen wearing her blue jacket over her shoulders.
She was both harsh and sweet, capable and competent, and drilled many of her own values into Yuuji. Thanks to her job of bringing him up, he can at least act normal, but now possesses a strong wariness for the horrors of large women. She was also completely and utterly incompetent at cooking as she couldn't even make fried rice.
Asako wasn't particularly different from Yuuji; she loved to read. She was so content to pass time with a book, a pack of cigarettes, and a pot of coffee especially on rainy days when she didn't have anything particular to do.
