Kyōko is a reckless girl who has eyes only for Yasuko. She is in the same class as Akira and is a member of the drama club. She is called ‘Princess’ for her charm and skills in sewing, art, tennis and acting. Many students look up to Kyōko in the same way Kyōko looks up to Yasuko. Kyōko is engaged (in name only) to Sawanoi Kō, a college student. This engagement was pushed for by Kyōko’s mother while Kyōko and Kō were still young, and not all of Kō’s relatives are happy about it.
