Very protective of her daughter, Misako has a reputation for being more than a little eccentric. She collects random and strange things, including some amazingly wacky hats. As a writer, Misako has had an extremely successful career but her poor editor seems to have to pester her to meet every deadline! Above everything, she values independence, and teaches her daughter exactly that.

By far the best female character in anime.

I love LOVE Colleen Clinkenbeard's voice performance for Misako in the English dub.  Misako is so hilariously weird and eccentric.  She hides most of it under a very cool and understated demeanor; she's also completely unflappable.  But she is also a very loving mother who is deeply wise and very supportive of her daughter.  Her brief bursts of zaniness add much to lighten the mood, for Kodocha dives into some pretty surprisingly deep emotional territory fairly quickly.

I heard Laura Bailey (Sana), in the voice actor commentary on the final disc, stating that Colleen really hates to sing and felt very self-conscious about the singing required for Misako in this show...but I think she came through like a champ.  Colleen has such a great voice and I love it when she plays a major character or lead in English-dubbed anime.
