Gurio Umino was the well-meaning but socially awkward otaku classmate of Usagi Tsukino and Naru Osaka. His usual function was to provide the girls with vital information, such as the existence of Sailor V and the identity of Mercurius in Ami's First Love, or to provide direction that led Usagi to a location targeted by the enemy. He later became romantically involved with Naru, despite initially having an infatuation with Usagi.


Umino was played by Marina Tanoue in Nogizaka46 Version Musical and its first revision, and by Miyuu Nakano in the second revision.


  • Naoko Takeuchi has said in an interview that Umino was supposed to be handsome without his glasses.
