"Ohhh… What seems to be the matter…? You over there. Is there something you would like to ask? Hm… Ohhh… So you were the one. The one who was searching for me. You found the one you were searching for, correct?"
Yoshino is a teenager who goes out of her way to help strangers, speaking and acting as if she's an extraordinary person. Straightforward, honest, and pure as the cleanest snow, Yoshino tends to act as if she's more in tune with her surroundings than humanly possible. She can find lost objects without failure, sense the presence of people trying to hide, and read surface thoughts. Even still, she does everything she can to help others. She enjoys visiting shrines and temples, and can also be seen dancing on the roof of one, in what appears to be a religious festival. It is likely that her former profession, if she is not a supernatural entity, is a miko.
It is implied that Yoshino might be a good luck kami (Japanese nature spirit), that the Producer interested into becoming an idol. When first encountered, she was wearing an outdated attire and spoke as if being worshiped was something she enjoyed. If she is, indeed, a divine being, she is most likely Benzaiten. In addition to luck and music, the goddess commands over coastlines, lakes, and rivers. Several of Yoshino's card illustrations show her having an affinity for water. Furthermore, Mount Benzaiten is located in Kagoshima, Yoshino's hometown; some Japanese legends claim mountains were the birth marks of deities.
If she's really a luck deity, then the Producer might have unknowingly wasted his wish for her to become an idol, instead of something wondrous for himself. However such a selfless wish might have endeared him to her. Her mere presence can resolve problems or make lost objects suddenly easy to find.
In the tie in Cinderella Girls Theater skits, Yoshino is introduced by Kate. She is very disciplined, as she can simultaneously sit under a waterfall, get sprayed in the face with a water gun by Reina, and get splashed with water by both Reina and Ema. Yoshino seems to like onsens and places with water nearby. She helps Nanami cook fish by using her conch shell horn to fan the flames of the fire.
