Yukari's physique is average. She has short pink hair and is about the same height if not shorter than Miyuki. Yukari's hair is short and unlike her daughter, she does not wear eyeglasses. Yukari is often mistaken for Miyuki's "big sister", or even for Miyuki's "daughter", due to her youthfully cuddly appearance. Combined with her cheerful personality and endearing clumsiness, has resulted in her being regarded as moe, a trait not common for anime characters in their thirties.
Yukari tends to be very well-mannered, but can be a bit of a klutz. She is warm and friendly, once talking with a telemarketer for over an hour, and has a mischievous sense of humor. She doesn't like to do household chores, which explains why she isn't very skilled with household items. On one occasion, she thought that a colored candle was a Popsicle.
Most of the time Yukari plays minor roles and she is seen far less often than the other parents in the series. She is only seen when Miyuki speaks to her or in flash backs and when the cast is spending time in the Takara Household.
- The name Yukari means "related" (ゆかり) in Hiragana.
- Her English voice actress, Bridget Hoffman, also voices Inori Hiiragi.
- In volume 1, chapter 3 (panel name St Valentine), her daughter once mentioned that she had an older brother. This is not clear because Yukari could not get married and give birth at a very young age. The mentioning of Yukari's son is rather a mystery. It is said that Miyuki told a lie about this to prove that she wasn't the only child because of the false belief that the only child is spoiled or that she saw her young father in a photo and mistakenly thought that her young father was actually her brother.
- Interestingly, Yukari mostly keeps her eyes closed.
- Yukari Takara is apparently the youngest parent in the series, being in her 30s-40s.
