Oh Mitzo, what can I say? She is one of a kind; she’s the youngest of the bunch and the spoiled one. She practically gets what she wants from her family (except Nya) because her family feels guilty she grew up without a mother. However her reign of being spoil comes to an end when her cousin Era moves in. The manga begins with her first year in High School (16yrs old). She is highly influenced by black comedy and stereotypes, so she will be the only one that will be using a lot of ghetto slang in the manga. She is more proud of her African American Heritage than Japanese side. In fact she hates being Japanese. When Mitzo was in Elementary, she was always made fun of because she was thicker and darker than all the other girls. She used to come home every day with tears in her eyes believing that was the reason her mother left; thus, the origins of the spoiling. However, in Mitzo first year of junior high, she decided enough was enough. She realized no matter what she does, it never seemed to help her relationship with her classmate, so she rebelled and place herself in the “don’t care club”. She found a group of outsider by her second year in junior high: a Korean (Hitomi), Chinese (Jia), and a Japanese Emo (Atsuko). Currently, Mitzo is in an unstable relationship with her boyfriend, Darnell Matthews, the only African American who attends her school. The only reason she’s dating him is because he’s black. So every time he tries something (touchy), she dumps him but end up with him the next day. She’s a loud mouth girl who speaks her mind. Although girls spread rumors about her being a slut, she’s actually the complete opposite and have only kissed her boyfriend.

Nya is the second oldest sister and the smartest one out of the bunch. She was the hardest one to draw. I just couldn’t decide how I wanted to have her eyes. And I’m still not sure if I want her hair to be this way. I see her as the logical and analytical one who is sensitive inside but put on a don’t care attitude. She is like the driest sarcastic character that gets under Honna’s skin. She’s the only person Mitzo will actually listen to, especially when Nya is serious. She attends Kyoto University, and she is majoring in Chemical Engineer. Out of her two sisters she is the best racer. She knows a lot about cars and can build one out of scraps. Currently she drives around in a moped she built when she was 16. Although it’s a piece of junk she is really proud of it. She dress like a guy and is believed to be a Lesbian. Although she goes on several dates with females, it’s always short live. Truthfully, she dates for free meals. So she’s the least experience when it comes to relationships. Her best friend is Su Cheol. They have been friends since they were eight years old. She spends most of her time with him looking at auto parts or studying, or listening to his female problems. Oh, and she is the only one who knows the family secret which made her the person she is today.
