Misaki is a main character in the video game BanG Dream!, as well as the anime of the same name.


A physical manifestation of ‘grin and bear it’, Misaki puts up with a lot more than the average musician. Doubling as Harohapi’s mascot Michelle, she has to deal with not only DJing in the sweltering heat of a live house while wearing a heavy bear suit, but also Kokoro and Hagumi routinely climbing her during performances, and worse still, three of the other four members of her band remaining wilfully ignorant to the fact that Michelle is her in a costume, and not actually a sentient, talking bear. On top of this, Misaki also does a lot of the organising due to her three idiots believing Michelle to be the bandmate, and Misaki being the ‘manager’. It’s tough being a bear sometimes...

Tropes and Cliches

  • Misaki has the habit of voicing her displeasure towards her work and her bandmates with dry sarcasm, contrasting with her band's cheerful outlook.
  • Stories with Misaki as the starring role often dive into how having to put up with Hello, Happy World!'s unreasonable demands and workflow on a regular basis is mentally exhausting at best, and self-destructive at worst.
  • Some fics featuring Misaki have bear puns in the title, such as ‘Bear Necessities’ or ‘Bear Faced Cheek’.
