Shoko Aki is Sho Fuwa's manager. Since he and Kyoko split he's been living at her place. Actually he was already living at her place most of the time even when he was still living with Kyoko, though the two of them, Kyoko and Shoko, get along rather well. Shoko Aki herself wanted to become an actress (Act.85), but decided she didn't have the talent for it. But she still wanted work that was connected with Show business, and got a good job as a manager. She also is aware of Sho's feelings for Kyoko, and tries to hint at him that he should confess his feelings to her.
