Seiran General Art Institute Stage Department Performance Major, Leader. Dubbed "Seiran's genius", even Maya recognizes her skills. No one knows what she's thinking, but in her heart she's hiding a calm fighting spirit.
Koharu has chest length dark brownish-purple hair that is pushed all to her right side over her shoulder. She has turquoise eyes.
Koharu’s school uniform consists of a plaid blazer of red, blue, and purple stripes. There are two buttons that close the blazer at the stomach. The Seiran school emblem is on the right breast of the blazer. Underneath the blazer she wears a white button-up shirt with a black tie. Her skirt is a plain brown one. She wears knee-high black socks and black flats.
Koharu’s practice/casual outfit consists of a hoodie, shirt, and shorts. The hoodie is black and blue. The main body of it is blue with the hood and sleeves being black. She wears it zipped up to just above her chest. The sleeves have three blue stripes toward the shoulders and the cuffs are blue too. On the left shoulder, it bears the Seiran school symbol as well as letters spelling out "Seiran" going down the sleeve. The shirt is a white t-shirt. The shorts are just plain black shorts.
Koharu’s revue outfit consists of a black and white long sleeved shirt with a collar. The middle of the shirt is white while the rest is black. The sleeves have the underside as white and the rest as black. On her right breast there is a zipper. She wears a black belt around her waist over the shirt. She wears a blue skirt with a sparkly textured stripe. Hanging off the skirt is a pale brown cloth that goes to knee length. She wears slightly above the knee stockings of black with three blue stripes on the top. She also wears knee-high black boots with a single sparkly grey stripe at the top. she wears light blue fingerless gloves that also expose the top of the hand.

Koharu is an emotionless girl. She is often seen as cold and stoic, not showing many facial expressions. She eases up around Suzu and Hisame, showing a bit more personality to them. She does not have many close friends, mainly viewing Hisame and Suzu as the only two she can confide in and who will stay beside her no matter what her resolve is in the end.
She is a hard worker and strives for perfection. She was selected by Kyoko Yakumo to be her class' representative due to this.
Due to Koharu's cold attitude, not many students like her. She struggled a lot to express herself and be honest. She was often thought of by the other student to not have any emotions at all. Koharu has a lot of self-doubt in her abilities and struggles when she can not do things right.
She often stays in the back during lessons, keeping out of everyone's way despite being arguably the best student in their class. She has done that all her life since she was a little kid. Suzu amd Hisame are the first to approach her and try to get to know her.
As the most skilled actress at Seiran, Koharu views Maya as her rival. The manga reveals that this stems from their time together at The 52nd Theater Alliance Recital. Meeting Maya inspired her to become confident in her own ambitions, even if she continued to struggle voicing that confidence out of fear of losing her friends.
Sakura is Koharu's younger sister. As with all other siblings, they do not attend the same school, with Sakura instead going to attend Seisho.
Yakumo and Koharu are similar. As such, Yakumo is seen taking a bigger interest in Koharu and helping her improve. She can understand Koharu well and tries to nudge her to be more open about her wants and opinions on things. That is one reason she put Koharu in the position of being the class representative - to try to get her to interact with her fellow classmates more and to have her choose the students for the play that all new Seiran students do.
