Waifu Wednesday: Hayase Yuuka from Blue Archive

Hayase Yuuka

Welcome back to Waifu Wednesday, Niche Gamer’s column where we talk about characters, their appeal, and a little on their history.

This week’s waifu is Hayase Yuuka from Blue Archive!

Yuuka is one of the first students that players meet when starting up Blue Archive. She’s the treasurer of Seminar, the governing body for the Millennium Science School and is canonically one of the students closest to Sensei as a semi-frequent assistant for his busy work.

Among fans, Yuuka is known for being strict with money and constantly judges Sensei for his flighty purchases (such as Kaitenger action figures), as well as having heavy thighs. It’s a common meme in the Blue Archive fandom to joke about Yuuka’s “100kg thighs”.

In-game, Yuuka is a reliable tank and despite (or perhaps because) being available to even beginning players, she’s considered a meta choice in many Tactical Challenge PvP teams.

Yuuka was suggested for this week’s waifu by the staff here at Niche Gamer.

Feel free to share who your waifu is on our Twitter or Facebook and who knows, we might feature them in a regular Waifu Wednesday post!

Blue Archive is available now on mobile devices. You can check out our review here! (as far as mobile games go, we still recommend it!) An anime series also premiered this season.
