Misaki Yata (八田美咲, Yata Misaki) is a member of Homura and acts as the group's vanguard.
Yata is a short male teenager with spiky, brushed down orange hair and matching colored eyes.
His attire consists of a long-sleeved white V-neck shirt with blue lining, a red sweater tied around his waist, dark green shorts, black socks and blue-and-gold sneakers. He wears a black beanie over his head and a pair of headphones around his neck.
Yata is a brash teenager with high self-esteem. He is very brutal, showing no hesitation when bludgeoning his opponents, as well as vulgar and easily irritable, especially about his height, cursing openly towards people when things don't go as he'd planned.
Nonetheless, he shows respect towards his fellow Homura members, especially Mikoto, and admits he still enjoys his memories in Homura with the "damn monkey", even though their relationship turned bitter.
Despite his rebellious and brash personality, Yata displays visible hesitation in dealing with girls, often blushing and stuttering around them.
