This article is about the elder of Verbergen. You may be looking for Mao Yoshino.

Mao (マオ?) is a character from the "Arifureta Shokugyō de Sekai Saikyō" series.

She is one of the elders of beastman nation Verbergen, and is the leader of the harpies. She is also in charge of news distribution for the nation in the form of monthly magazine publications.



Mao likes to sensationalize the news that she reports on. She will add drama to the facts in order to captivate her subscribers.

Like most beastmen, Mao worships Kaori Shirasaki as a goddess after she uses her powers to restore Verbergen and heal its citizens.


Mao, along with the rest of the elders of Verbergen, banished the Haulia Tribe for concealing the existence of Shea Haulia.

When Verbergen was recovering from the attacks of the demons and the Hoelscher Empire, Mao decided to revive the nation's monthly news publication in order to raise the spirits of its citizens. She did an exposé on Hajime, Shea, and the rest of their companions since they were the ones responsible for saving the beastmen. Her article, however, left them all embarrassed as a result of her journalistic sensationalism.[1]


  • Yue - Mao has earned Yue's ire due to her attempts to break up Yue and Hajime in order to make it look like Shea is his only lover.
