Tsuruno Yui is a major character in the Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story anime.
Tsuruno is energetic and friendly. She has ambitions for her family's Chinese restaurant named Banbanzai.
Tsuruno is a young woman with light-brown hair and orange eyes.
In her Magical Girl form, she wears a short-sleeved orange and white crop top decorated with bits of yellow with flared sleeves and a short orange skirt. Around her waist, she also wears a golden trinket adorned with rubies with a piece of gold-trimmed white fabric attached to the front and a pale orange loincloth composed of two enormous ribbons tied at the top to form a bow. She wears pieces of cloth around her wrists and ankles, though the ones on her ankles have long pieces of white gold-trimmed lace attached. She wears a pair of brown heels decorated with tiny bits of yellow. She wears dangling earrings on her ears with a long, orange, oval-shaped gem dangling from it. She also wears an odd-shaped flower hairpin on her hair which she ties into a ponytail. She uses matching orange, pointed, iron fans as her weapons.
After being possessed by the Rumour of Chelationland, she wears the same outfit, but it now carries a bright jade-green colour scheme with an intricate pattern on it. Her hair is now also a bright mint green shade while her eyes are now a dark pink.
