Girl From Nowhere Season 2 introduced us to Yuri, a normal schoolgirl who became *immortal* after a confrontation involving Nanno. While maaany people had mixed feelings about Yuri's character, I think we can all agree that the actress who plays her is pretty amazing! The season ended with a cliffhanger too, so many of us are waiting for Season 3 + more Yuri and Nanno content.
