Miyoko Sahara is a supporting character in the Koe no Katachi series. For a majority of the series, she is a fashion design student of Taiyō Girls Academy and is friends with several members of the main cast, including Shōko Nishimiya, Naoka Ueno, and Shōya Ishida. Standing at 5'11" (180 cm), Sahara is a tall girl with black hair cut into a boycut, gentle eyes and it is assumed she has freckles in the manga. For school, she wears a sailor uniform, and when going out her clothing is often dark or black. She is often seen wearing high heels. Miyoko is a kind and friendly person, often carrying a calm demeanor that allows her to get along with most people around her. She also appears to be very supportive and empathetic towards people she considers close friends. Although courteous, her passive nature results in very timid and non-confrontational behavior when it comes to conflict, something Shōya Ishida criticizes her for during his rant on the bridge. Aware of her shortcomings, Miyoko continually tries to work past her avoidant behavior throughout the series, showing considerable progress towards the end of the series although she still has room to grow.
