|“||You're the boss, boss!||”|
Ken Sakoda (迫田 ケン) is a yakuza underling who works under Sakyo Furuichi where he is always seen following him around and he also helps out Mankai occasionally.
Sakoda is a young man with blond hair that has a dark undercut and chestnut-brown eyes.
He usually wears a purple jacket with a leopard print, a red t-shirt and belt, and black baggy pants. He has a lot of gold chains. Sakoda has a tiny x-shaped scar next to his right eye.
Sakoda is very lively and energetic person, and his traits can be described as of a dog would. He does everything Sakyo Furuichi asks him to. However, Sakoda can be a bit too eager sometimes and that causes Sakyo to be annoyed at him. He is exceedingly loyal to Sakyo, whom he calls Boss, and supports him to the extreme levels, like when he made a congratulations banner for Sakyo.
Sakoda is first seen when Sakyo is ordering him to tear down the Mankai Theater sign with a bulldozer in Prologue Chapter 1 - The Sacred Place of Theaters. Since Sakyo joined the troupe, Sakoda hangs out a lot at Mankai.
Before Sakoda started working under Sakyo Furuichi, he was a stray. Sakyo showed him to the yakuza group, Ginsekai, who took him in. In the Ginsekai he met the boss’ son, Azami Izumida. They got really close and gained a brotherly relationship.
When Azami Izumida wanted to run away from his father during Episode 6, Sakoda introduced him to the Mankai Dormitory. Sakoda was the one who covered for Azami when he started acting. And when Azami’s father found out that he wanted to me a makeup artist, Sakoda bravely stood up against the boss.
It was later revealed that the Boss was thinking about having Sakoda take the Ginsekai over after him.
- Sakyo Furuichi: Sakoda really looks up to Sakyo, admiring his mature qualities and other of the like. When Sakyo gets mad at him, he gets pretty scared but nothing bad has happened. Sakyo fairly trusts Sakoda, though secrets usually accidentally get leaked by Sakoda, such as the time Sakyo was planning to buy an apartment for his mother.
- Azami Izumida: Azami is like a younger brother to Sakoda, but also in a way his second boss since Azami's father is the head of the yakuza family. Azami is very fond of Sakoda and has a soft spot for him, listening to what he says instead of Sakyo Furuichi. Sakoda also does whatever Azami orders him to, but this often results in Sakyo being displeased or the two fighting over Sakoda.
- Ken's surname Sakoda means "urge, force, imminent, spur on" (迫) (sako) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).
