Erika Sata (née Shinohara) is the main protagonist of the series. She lied to her friends about having a boyfriend and claiming that an individual from an image she took was her boyfriend. The individual turned out to be Kyouya Sata, who happens to go that school. Later in the series, she developed some feelings for him, and then they were returned. In Volume 16 Chapter 58 and 58.5, she is now the wife of Kyouya Sata and the mother of Yuina Sata.


Erika is a teeange girl who has an average height and figure. She has shoulder-length brown hair which she chopped off to a bob later (Episode 12) and large brown eyes. She usually leaves her long locks loose, but styles it in a ponytail with some accessories occasionally. Like other characters, she is usually seen wearing her school uniform which consists of a white blouse, a yellow vest and a striped red and white bow. She has a fondness for cute things and her casual clothes are usually girly.

In Volume 16 Chapter 58 and 58.5, Erika cuts her hair into a bob to look somewhat mature and motherly.


Erika is often seen as an easy-going girl, but she is quite gullible as noted by Kyouya Sata.

She was also noted to be a "masochist" by her best friend Ayumi Sanda, when she told her that she agreed to being Kyouya's pet dog in exchange for him to be her pretend boyfriend. Erika has a habit of telling boastful lies which often comes back to bite her in the end. Besides that, she's also a glutton, someone who is capable of eating a lot.
