Natsuko

Natsuko Shōno (翔野ナツ子, Shouno Natsuko) is a character from Yudetamago's manga and anime series Kinnikuman and its sequel Kinnikuman Nisei. She is voiced by Hiromi Tsuru (Akiko Hiramatsu in Kinnikuman: Scramble for the Throne).

About

Natsuko is a young reporter for Weekly Hero (週刊HERO, Shūkan HERO) who becomes Terryman's girlfriend. She is almost never seen without her trademark newsboy cap and camera. She is a bit of a tomboy, wearing bellbottoms and a tanktop in earlier chapters and overalls and a sweater from the Chojin Olympics on. Her nickname for Kinnikuman is Kin-chan (キンちゃん).

She is very possessive of Terryman and has even been known to attack his female admirers (and Nakano) for getting too close to him. Their relationship is made more obvious in the anime, as they are frequently shown on dates and she gets really into his fights (similar to Sayuri Kinniku with Kinnikuman's fights).

She originally speaks with an Osaka dialect, but uses a standard Japanese dialect in the anime.

She is initially antagonistic towards Mari Nikaido but the two eventually learn to get along (in the anime they are portrayed as best friends). Contrary to the explanation in Kinnikuman Nisei, it was Natsuko and not Bibimba who originally replaced Mari as the heroine of the series. She disappears after the 21st Chojin Olympics preliminaries in the manga, but like most of the supporting cast she stays around until the end in the anime.
