Juku Ren, whose real name is Juku Renbutsu, is one of the male students that currently attends Akademi High School.


Juku wears the default male school uniform, unless customized by the player.

Before the February 15th, 2016 Build, he had light brown hair with a hint of orange with eyes that were also light brown with a hint of orange. Juku's hair was a mirrored and recolored version of Riku Soma's hair with tufts jutting out from the left side.

As of the February 15th, 2016 Build, his hair is very similar to Senpai's default hair, but with hair tufts on both sides. 

As of the February 19th, 2019 Build, Juku's eyes are olive, his hair has a darker brown color, and has fair skin. 

He wears a white headband with the kanji "必" and "勝", which combined means "victory". If the club disbands, he will not wear the headband anymore.

When in the Martial Arts Club, he dons a traditional karate gi.



"Fanatically obsessed with martial arts films since childhood. Joined the Martial Arts CLub to be more like his heroes. \ Primarily interested in re-enacting moves from his favourite films, rather than developing proper self-defense skills."

Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Juku is Heroic . If he sees a corpse, he will act upon the Teacher's Pet persona. If he witnesses Ayano commit murder, he will run to fight her. He is very weak so a fight with him is not very hard. If Ayano aims her phone at him, he will give Ayano a suspicious look before crossing his arms.

YandereDev imagines him as a shy and timid guy. He perhaps joined the Martial Arts Club because he heard about the bullies at Akademi, however, he is not progressing much.[1]

According to the info in his Student Profile, he is fanatically obsessed with martial arts films since childhood and joined the Martial Arts Club to be more like his heroes.

He is primarily interested in re-enacting moves from his favorite films rather than actually developing proper self-defense skills.

  • He was implemented in the November 15th, 2015 build.
  • His real name is Juku Renbutsu as of the July 1st, 2020 build.
  • His name is a play on words. Jukuren (熟練) in Japanese can mean either "skilled" or "proficient", although this does not reflect Juku's self-defense level, which is "very weak".
    • However it actually originated from jukuren shita shokunin (熟練した職人), meaning "journeyman", which is a reference to someone who is learning something.[2]

    • As of the the August 18th, Build, his persona has changed back to Heroic.
