Not a lot of Yoshimi's past was known. A passing reference was made to Mitsuko Souma that she was pimping Yoshimi Yahagi, but it is never elaborated. Yoshimi had, along with Fumiyo and Mayumi, locked Noriko Nakagawa in a restroom stall which had insults written on the wall towards Noriko. Yoshimi didn't usually back down from authority figures. She would speak up if something bothered her, especially when it involved her boyfriend Yoji whom she loved.

Friends and EnemiesEdit

Yoshimi was friends with Hirono Shimizu, Mayumi Tendo, and Fumiyo Fujiyoshi. She dated Yoji Kuramoto and they seemed to love each other. She was one of many students who bullied Noriko Nakagawa. It is unknown how her relationship with Mitsuko Souma was, but it could be assumed that their friendship was strained. She might have also been possible friends with Yumiko Kusaka and Yukiko Kitano due to them talking and laughing on the bus.

In the ProgramEdit


Yoshimi (left) dead after being hanged.

After Yoshimi wakes up, she is greeted by her old teacher Kitano. While Kitano explains the rules of the Battle Royale that her class is now in. Yoji whispers to Yoshimi whom Kitano catchs and hits them with a piece of chalk. Yoshimi confronts Kitano, yet Kitano pushes her forehead away with his finger, and Yoshimi sits down.

After the program begins, Yoshimi and Yoji manage to find each other and are found dead by being hung with Yoji's rope.

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • It is unknown but some theories speculate that it is possible that Mitsuko is the one that killed Yoji and Yoshimi, but it is never clear. When Hirono threatens Mitsuko, she states that Mitsuko was probably "pimping" Yoshimi, then hung them both. A very well possibility, but it is never revealed to this day.
  • In the novel, Mitsuko Souma shot Yoshimi and Yoji in the woods.
