Reception and negotiation techniques… once we go out to society, wouldn’t these become our sharpest blades?

— Toka Yada[src][src]

Toka Yada (矢田 桃花 Yada Tōka) is a student in Korosensei's Class 3-E in Kunugigaoka Junior High School.

Appearance

Yada is a beautiful teenage girl of average height with brown hair held up in a ponytail with a red elastic but he temporarily changes it to a blue one (until the end of the summer holiday) and light purple eyes. She also has the largest bust out of all the female students in Class 3-E, a trait inherited from her grandmother.[3] Because she’s still in the stage of adolescence, her chest is still maturing, something the boys get restless about every day.[4] When she was a teenager, her cup size is was E.[5]

During the summer holiday on the island, she wears a half white, half yellow T-shirt and purple shorts.

Personality

I just want to be honest with my feelings... is something wrong with that?

— Toka Yada[src][src]

She is the big sister of Class 3-E and one of the most enthusiastic students about learning the art of infiltration from Irina. She's been described as being adult-like and cool to the point that Kayano admits that she's attracted to her despite her large bust.

Yada does not like violence, which is why she commits herself to negotiation in order avoid fighting.[4]

History

She was sent to Class E for neglecting a test in order to nurse her sick younger brother. This backstory would later be used as a means to escape jail in a game of Cops & Robbers.[4]

Plot

Yada doesn't get significant focus until Chapter 66, where she helped the girls out of a tight spot by driving away a few thugs who were trying to flirt with them by pretending to be a mafia princess.

After the men run off, she then states that the yakuza emblem she had was obviously a loaner which came from Irina. Kayano notes that she's always been the most interested student in Irina's lessons, to which she replies that, while she doesn't want to use seduction as a means to accomplish things, she wishes to gain the necessary tools for negotiation and entertaining, as they would be the ultimate tools when going out into society, making the other girls compliment her on her maturity.
