Bio: Yurika is the captain of the Nadesico. Yurika in some ways is an airhead. If you tell her something there is a good chance she'll hear something else instead. She likes to play around and have fun with things whenever she can. Despite this she does have feelings and tries to work hard. Well sometimes anyway. Yurika has a crush/interest or whatever term you want to use on Akito.
Opinion: Sure she's an airhead and doesn't pay very good attention. However that's what makes her so funny as a character. She's also very attractive and has blue hair. Also her singing voice is quite good.
