Akiko Yoshida (sister)
Mrs. Yoshida (mother)
Mr. Yoshida (father)
Toshi Yoshida is a student at Pearl Bailey High School, and is one of Steve's friends. Toshi can understand English, but can only speak Japanese and Russian. His sister, Akiko, and his mother and father speak English so it is unknown why Toshi cannot. There is a possible reason that he does know how to speak English, but he can make insults that his friends will not know about so he prefers Japenese. Toshi is also observant enough to notice that Steve's "uncle" Roger is an alien in disguise.
Akiko Yoshida is Toshi's sister. She sometimes translates for him. In the episode "Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls" it is reveiled that Toshi is very overprotective of her, which Steve convinces him to stop doing.
Mrs. Yoshida is Toshi's mother. She speaks perfect English, yet Stan and Francine can't understand her. In "Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls" she wants Toshi to wear a samari costume to celebrate his heritage.
Mr. Yoshida is Toshi's father. He was only seen once breifly in "May The Best Stan Win."
It is hinted throughout the series that Toshi genuinely does not like Steve. This is evidenced in the episode Finances With Wolves, where Steve believes he is a werewolf and tells his friends they must kill him. Toshi replies, "you have shamed me by offering me my greatest wish."
In Weiner Of Our Discontent, Steve was goofing around with Toshi's chopsticks, which were made from the femurs of his grandmother. Toshi felt so offended by this that he challenged Steve to a hot-dog eating contest in order to determine which of them would switch lunch periods.
In License To Till, Toshi was noticably offended when he overheard Snot tell Steve that they were"best of the best of the best" friends.
In A Pinata Named Desire, Snot became irritated with Toshi always speaking Japanese, so Snot slapped him and said "learn English!" Toshi responed with "eat...my...bowls!" That probably wasn't quite what he meant, but at least he tried.
Romantic and Sexual EncountersEdit
In the episode Failure is Not a Factory Installed Option, Toshi tries to impress a girl but doesn't get far with her.
In Of Ice and Men, Toshi woos a Russian mail-order bride in her native language.
