The same melody repeats itself as the song grows richer and more beautiful. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could live seemingly constant lives while experiencing changes bit by bit?”— Sayuri Kurata

Sayuri Kurata (倉田 佐祐理 Kurata Sayuri ) is the best friend of Mai Kawasumi. Even though Mai and Sayuri are different, Sayuri enjoys being with Mai because one day, a dog came on the school campus and Sayuri saw the soft side of Mai when she fed the dog.
AppearanceEditSayuri is a young woman of average height for her age and has a light complexion. She has long green-brown hair that is straight and unbraided. She has a fringe that reaches down to her eyes. She keeps the sides of her hair down so that it reaches her chest. She keeps the back of her hair untied, except for a few strands, which she ties up in a large, green checkered bow tie. She has light brown eyes. Sayuri is usually seen wearing her red school uniform.
Sayuri is a very nice and kind person who always wants to help out. She is very careless and caring. Everyday, she cooks a bento for Mai and Yuichi. She is also very cheerful, always wearing a smile on her lips, often laughing at almost any situation.
Sayuri comes from a wealthy family. She once had a younger brother named Kazuya, but she was hard on him, like how she was treated. She wanted to be nice to him but she wanted him to be like her, so he had to be treated the same way. One day he was in the hospital and died, but in his final moments Sayuri played with him, for the first and last time. After his death, Sayuri started to refer to herself in the third person, which is consistent throughout the anime and manga.
