You (あなた, Anata), also referred to as You with a -san suffix, is a minor character who appears in Soul Eater's side comic, Soul Eater GAIDEN, which takes place in Atsushi-Ya. She is a woman of very few words, only saying "Mm-hmm" or "Mm-hmm. ♡" .[1] These "Mm-hmm"s change structure to things such as "Mm...HMM!!" depending on her rather obscured mood.[2] She is the bartender at Atsushi-Ya and Usher claims that she is invincible.


You has a very trite expression as a reflection of her 'straight-man' personality to offset Usher's zaniness. However, she seems to hold little respect for her boss. She almost never shows emotion, and is known to be quite violent, exemplified by when she hits Tonogai back to Earth when they try to get into space, thus killing them.[3] Also, she hits Usher in the jaw with a bat.[4]


Usher: Usher is You's boss at Atsushi-Ya and she is his bodyguard. She often goes along with Usher's commands, being work related or not. However, she doesn't hold him very high, going so far as to join his hate club, leave him to die from Rat's disease and being beaten up.


You is a young looking woman wearing a peach-coloured dress shirt, a long-sleeved white blouse, peach-coloured trousers and a black tie. She is also very "robust". She has straight navy-blue hair that reaches down to her shoulders (sometimes her mid-back) and is parted to the right. You has dark eyes and an olive skin tone.

It is worth noting that You's peach clothing and hair is usually shaded in to be black.

Abilities Edit

You possesses extraordinary strength and physical prowess, as she was able to leap to an extraordinary height and hit Tonogai back to Earth whilst they were travelling at a high velocity.[3] Usher also claims that You is invincible. However, she did protect herself from Rat in a protective suit shortly afterwards. It is unknown if she is actually invincible.

Soul Eater GaidenEdit

Gaiden 1 (Soul Eater)Edit

You follows along with Usher's command as Shiozawa Pesuto comes around and pollutes the Atsushi-Ya bar, but she is prepared and wears a hazmat using disinfectant spray to defend herself, unlike her boss.


  • You, like other members of Atsushi-Ya, first appeared in the Gaiden from Ohkubo's previous manga, B. Ichi. In their initial appearance, You was actually a man, until Usher complained that he needed more female characters--at which point You first transformed into a girl, who resembled Tsugumi Harudori, then a woman as she appears in the remainder of B. Ichi and Soul Eater.[5]
