Shoko Aki (安芸 祥子 Aki Shoko) is the manager of Sho Fuwa. She works at Akatoki Agency. Originally she wanted to debut as an actor however she judged herself not talented enough to make it big. Still wanting to be involved in Showbiz, she became a manager.


Shoko is shown to be sympathetic[1], self-aware, a bit of a rule-breaker[2], and in possession of good judgment, which she is proud of[3].


Shoko has a long, wavy, brown-colored hair with grey eyes. She is considered to be very attractive and usually wears business clothing that consists of a coat, a top, high-waisted coat and a necklace. Both Sho and Kyoko have described her figure as sexy[4][5].


Shoko mentioned she went to a university where many famous people have come from[6]. Shoko said that up until university, she wanted to be an actress herself but she gave up on her dream, judging herself not talented enough to succeed in acting[7]. However, she still wanted a job that had to do with the showbiz industry so she became a manager.


Shoko appears in the following story arcs:


Sho Fuwa

Shoko mentions that Sho has practically moved in to her place. That she is being forced to take care of him as Sho says it is her duty as his manager. Sho tries to hit on her a numerous times stating that she is his type, while she thinks of him as a cute but also spoiled & childish. Shoko claims to have gotten to know Sho better but not as well as Kyoko does. She knows of Sho's possessiveness and often tries to avoid the landmines involving Kyoko. She believes Sho to have romantic feelings for Kyoko and persuades him to move forward with it.

Haruki Asami

Both of them seem to have normal conversation and are on good terms. Both of them usually discuss Sho's unusual bad mood which they deduce to have connection with Kyoko.

Kyoko Mogami

Prior to their meeting, Shoko is sympathetic toward Kyoko for being treated as a servant by Sho. After their paths continued to cross, Shoko was genuinely surprised and impressed by the frequent transformations of Kyoko in her roles. Despite the fact that they are from different, almost opposing aspects, of Sho's world, they are on good terms.
