Kurenai Yūhi (夕日紅, Yūhi Kurenai) is one of the supporting characters of the Naruto and Boruto universe. She is a jōnin-level kunoichi from Konohagakure. She is also the leader of Team Kurenai, which consists of: Hinata Hyūga, Shino Aburame, Kiba Inuzuka and Kiba's ninken, Akamaru.
In the English version, she is voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (except for her first appearance).
In the Japanese version, she is voiced by Rumi Ochiai.
Kurenai has dark brown hair, crimson-colored eyes and light-colored skin. She has a slender build and is shorter than Asuma Sarutobi, her former lover. Since Boruto, she cut her shoulder-length brown hair to a shorter hair style. In Part I and II, she is seen wearing her jonin flak jacket along with a short dress or standard jonin clothing. By Boruto, she is seen wearing a red dress.
Of all her students, Kurenai is closest with Hinata, acting as a surrogate parent/mother in the absence of Hinata's father and helping Hinata overcome her weaknesses.
She is usually accompanied by her childhood friend Asuma Sarutobi. Kurenai leads Team 8 which consists of Kiba Inuzuka, Shino Aburame, Akamaru, and Hinata Hyuga. Later on, Kurenai fights Itachi Uchiha and Kisame Hoshigaki from the Akatsuki, along with her friends Kakashi Hatake, Might Guy, and Asuma Sarutobi.
Kurenai is revealed to be pregnant with Asuma's child. Several months after Asuma's death, Kurenai gave birth to their daughter Mirai Sarutobi, who later becomes a kunoichi by the events of the series epilogue.
