Characters

  • Miiko Yamada (山田 みい子 Yamada Miiko) is the protagonist of the series. She is an energetic and short student in fifth grade. Miiko loves eating, which becomes a problem because she gets fat easily (as shown in much of the episodes). Her best friends are Mari Shimura, Yuuko Ogawa, and Tappei Eguchi. She's often found hanging out with her friends or fighting with a boy called Tappei who seems to like Miiko a bit but was too shy to say it to her himself. He called her names instead and sometimes got on Miiko's nerves. Voiced by: Umi Tenjin.
  • Mamoru Yamada (山田 まもる Yamada Mamoru) is Miiko's younger brother. Unlike his sister, he is very diligent and often teaches Miiko when she's having difficulties with her homework. Mamoru liked helping his family, even though it got on his nerves sometimes. Voiced by: Akiko Yajima.
  • Rie Yamada (山田 理絵 Yamada Rie) is Miiko's mother and is an editor of a magazine. Voiced by: Kotono Mitsuishi
  • Mari Shimura (志村 まり Shimura Mari) is Miiko's best friend. Her career is to be a mangaka. She is stern on Miiko but also a loyal friend.
  • Tappei Eguchi (江口 辰平 Eguchi Tappei) is Miiko's friend. He seems to have a romantic interest towards Miiko as he is always teasing her. Although he appears to be hardcore and annoying, he is in fact a shy, and nice person.
  • Yuuko Ogawa (小川 優子 Ogawa Yuuko) is Miiko's best friend. She is nice, smart and friendly. She is also Kenta's girlfriend.
