(ゆう, ) is one of the main characters in 🎬 Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori, being the only male human. He seems to be a reference on how in the Animal Crossing series games, a person could connect through Wi-Fi, so players from other towns can come visit their town. He does not live in Animal Village, but visits often, as he loves to play with Alfonso by competing for collectibles such as fossils and bugs.


Yū changes his outfit daily, as throughout the film, he dressed as a ninja, a pirate, in camouflage, and as a snow bunny. When Yū is not wearing a hat, his brown hair features a small strand of spiky hair. He has large, anime-styled eyes that each have one small brown eyelash. He does not have a triangle nose as with many players in the Animal Crossing series, instead opting for a small, round nose.


Yū first appears doing a bug catching contest with Alfonso when Ai is delivering a package. When a bug crawls on to Ai, Yū catches the bug on Ai and thanks her, giving her another bug in return. Ai, freaked out by the bug Yū gave him, screams.

Later, Yū and Alfonso are seen digging for fossils, but are interrupted when Resetti pops out of the ground, and lectures the two of them for destroying his tunnel. After Rosie alerts them about a fossil in the cave, Yū and Alfonso unsuccessfully attempt to dig up a Seismosaurus fossil, and are forced to leave the cave when it starts to collapse.

Shortly after Margie moves away, Ai ends up falling into one of Yū and Alfonso's pitfalls. Yū and Alfonso laugh, but Ai, still depressed, gets herself out of the pitfall and walks away, leaving Yū and Alfonso surprised. A few months later, Yū and the other encounter a U.F.O, which had crashed during the Miracle Festival. With a plead by Gulliver to get his U.F.O fixed, Yū and the others search around the town for the lost pieces of the U.F.O. With help from Margie, the group manages to return to the cave where Yū unsuccessfully attempted to take the Seismosaurus fossil. From there, Yū successfully manages to obtain the piece for the U.F.O from the top of the fossil. However, his bunny mask falls off, leaving Ai to remark on seeing his actual face for the first time. The group then returns their U.F.O part to Gulliver, which turns out to be an smaller UFO that ends up returning to the other UFOs.



  • Yū and Ai's names may be a pun on the English words "you and I."
