She has bangs with her medium-length hair that is always shown to be tied up in a ponytail. She also has grey eyes which she pairs up with black glasses. Throughout her appearance, she is only seen wearing a business suit. However, in the live-action adaption, she was wearing more of formal clothing instead of an actual business suit.


Nothing much is known about her background, but she seems to be Ruriko's manager since she first started to be a singing idol. She was shown to be in the recording studio with Ruriko singing for her debut. When Ruriko falls ill she asked her to change the release date and when Ruriko was stuborn on finishing it she placed a cooling pad on her forehead before continuing her singing[2].

She is able to tolerate Ruriko's bratty antics while maintaining a calm composure because she has gotten used to them. It doesn't even faze her one bit whenever Ruriko throws tantrums. Also, she knows about Ruriko's obvious crush on Ren Tsuruga.

Ruriko's manager trusted Kyoko enough to let her take care of Ruriko. She is aware of Kyoko's good character, having seen her put up with Ruriko's bratty attitude. Ruriko's manager was even shown apologizing to Kyoko for the injury she got from Ruriko's whiny requests.

Ren Tsuruga

Although they never really directly interacted, Ruriko's manager is well-aware of Ruriko's crush on Ren. She mentioned his name in order to evoke Ruriko to go on with the shooting, telling her that Ren is probably waiting.
