Erika Kose (巨瀬 エリカこせ えりか, Kose Erika) is a supporting character in the main series and one of the main characters of Kaguya-sama wo Kataritai. She is a member of the Mass Media Club and the daughter of the owners of the Kose Miso Soy Sauce Company.


Erika is based on Kose no Oumi (巨勢 相覧), a famous painter from the Heian period of Japan.


Erika is a girl of average height with long black hair that she has tied in a loose ponytail with short square bangs and her eyes usually are drawn without pupils.

She wears the standard Shuchi'in Academy girls uniform. However, she and her best friend Karen Kino are being shown many times in matching outfits in official art.


Erika has a strong fixation on Kaguya Shinomiya that borders on obsession, to the point that merely being in her presence, can cause her to pass out. She is also unable to recognize the romantic feelings of others, being oblivious to Maki Shijo having a crush on Tsubasa Tanuma or Kaguya and Miyuki Shirogane's mutual attraction. She seems naive and not very smart in studies and social interactions.



  • Erika's surname Kose means "giant, huge, big, massive, gigantic, large, great" (巨) (ko) and "swift current, rapids" (瀬) (se).


  • Erika family owns a Miso company.[1]
  • Erika's way to relax is to make Miso.
    • She really loves miso in the point to recommend them as love advice and she gets offended if people say something about miso.
  • Erika wants a boyfriend but that is mostly for the status and so Kaguya Shinomiya can ask her for advice.
