Yurika Hakonaka (箱仲 ユリーカ Hakonaka Yurīka) is a supporting character in Yuri Kuma Arashi. She is teacher at Arashigaoka Academy, who was a close friend of Reia Tsubaki. Yurika was a bear who grew up in Arashigaoka Academy and was befriended by Reia, but felt betrayed by Reia giving other people, especially Kureha Tsubaki, love, and thus ate her out of anger and jealousy after Reia lent her star pendant, the symbol of their friendship, to Ginko. Since eating Reia did not satisfy Yurika, she presently plans to thus make Kureha her "bride-in-the-box" and eat her, and manipulates several of the students to achieve this end. Although Yurika gets close to success, she ends up foiled at the last minute, killed by the Invisible Storm.

In the manga, Yurika is Ginko Yurishiro's paternal aunt, and the two live together. She cares a lot for Ginko's mother, and though she is frustrated by her forgetfulness and eccentricity, will use any excuse to go and visit her. She is also in a sexual relationship with Ginko's mother.


  • Yurika's surname Hakonaka means "box" (箱) (hako) and "relationship" (仲) (naka).
