Yassan (やっさん Yassan), otherwise known as Literary Girl, is a character in Daily Lives of High School Boys.
Yassan is a high school girl from Sanada West High of average height who is often seen with her school uniform. She has long dark violet hair reaching on her waist.
From what has been seen, Yassan is a hopeful romantic having written a book with "a boy-meets-girl scenario near a river bank" and going to the river-bank in order to have a similar experience.
She shows an aggressive side to her, as she quickly beat up Tadakuni for not catching on to her trying to live out a romantic scenario. This is shown again when she jealously chases a classmate who was sitting at the riverbank with Hidenori.
In the manga, she is very interested in Hidenori Tabata which is only explored in the anime as she has the most interaction with him than any other character. Yassan appears to have taken a romantic interest in Hidenori, due to the fact that she always blushes or gets excited when meeting him and being eager to hear him quote a line from a book. There is also a time when Hidenori caught her walking with a classmate and she chased him all around town to the bridge just to tell him what their relationship was, being just friends, so he wouldn't get the wrong idea. In another moment, she was pleasantly surprised when Hidenori smiled at her after an encounter with Yanagin. During the very last episode, she is happy when he returns her affections by quoting a line and reaching for her hand.
She makes her first appearance in High School Boys and Literature Girl where she pesters Hidenori at the river bank. She seems to always go there, knowing Hidenori reads there, to have what he calls "a boy-meets-girl scenario near a river bank". Also, it appears that Yassan has taken a romantic interest in Hidenori, due to the fact that she always blushes when meeting him and there being a time when Hidenori caught her walking with a classmate and she chased him all around town to the bridge just to tell him what their relationship was, being just friends, so he wouldn't get the wrong idea. This is shown again when she jealously chases away an acquaintance who was sitting at the riverbank with Hidenori.
At the end of the anime, after graduating from their schools they meet each other at the riverbank. Unlike their previous meetings, they are calm and composed with both even quoting lines involving siezing the wind, and Hidenori ending it by saying "Let us make haste, lest the wind ceases". It is appears that they seem to get together, as Hidenori reaches his hand out for Yassan who smiles and blushes as she takes Hidenori's hand. However, this was later revealed to be apart of Tadakuni having a dream so they presumably did not become a couple.
In the manga, Hidenori keeps meeting Literary Girl in different locations like in the movies, in an elevator, the cultural festival, etc., resulting in more awkward encounters for both of them.
- It is unknown what her real name is but she is usually called Yassan by her classmates.
