Mikako Kouda (幸田 実果子 Kōda Mikako) is the president of Happy Berry and the older sister of Miwako Sakurada.


Physical Appearances[]

'kako shared such a resemblance to 'wako that Arashi Nagase mistakenly grabbed her once. Although 'kako apparently has a smaller chest than her little sister, in spite of being fully adult.

Mikako with pink hair

Mikako changes back to blonde by Episode 5.

Like Miwako Sakurada (Mikako's younger sister), Mikako has pink hair in the ParaKiss anime, different from her yellow hair in Gokinjo. This makes it likely that Wako copies her hair color from Kako.

Personality and traits[]

Mikako likes to run and shout "WARP!" while travelling places. She did this all the time in Gokinjo and she is still doing it as an adult and a mother in ParaKiss.

Behind the scenes[]

  • Mikako is the heroine of Gokinjo Monogatari, a previous work by Ai Yazawa.
  • Mikako is a minor character in Paradise Kiss, and was first mentioned in chapters 2, and 4, and made her first appearance in chapter 13.



  • The name Mikako means "fruit, good result, truth" (実) (mi), "fruit" (果) (ka) and "child" (子) (ko).
  • In Episode 6, Mikako mentions that she is 36 years old.
  • Since Mikako is married to Tsutomu Yamaguchi, it is possible that she is now Mikako Yamaguchi.
