Misuzu Sonoda is Ranka's colleague at the okama bar. He runs a pension in Karuizawa, Nagano, where Haruhi works during summer vacation. He holds a contest between the Hosts over who will be most refreshing and be able to stay at the pension; he is swayed by Kaoru and Hikaru after a "brotherly love" act that earns "100 refreshing points". His real name is Isao (功?). He was formerly a banker and has a love for making frilly lolita-type clothing.
