Sukuyo Mankanshoku (満艦 (まんかん) (しょく) (すく) () Mankanshoku Sukuyo?) is the wife of Barazō Mankanshoku and the mother Mako Mankanshoku & Matarō Mankanshoku.


Sukuyo is a slim woman with light brown hair that is often tied up in a bun while she leaves a rather thick fringe over her forehead and amber eyes, like the rest of her family.

Sukuyo wears a pink dress with an apron over it and a light green jacket. Completing the outfit is a pair of white shoes, perhaps slippers.


Sukuyo is a naturally a rather motherly individual with a friendly and sweet demeanor. She seems to be accepting, taking in Ryūko Matoi without any objection. She is very sincere, as she admits to using questionable ingredients in her trademark 'Mystery Croquettes'; although she claims that none of them are poisonous, she does not object to them being filled with all sorts of unknown things.[1]

Sukuyo demonstrates a more dark and violent side occasionally. When she makes her debut, she claims that she has no problem with Ryūko beating up her husband or son.[2] In addition, she takes Matarō in a headlock outside Stardust Electronics when he is misbehaving and threatens him.[3] She smiles throughout this incident.


At some point in her life, Sukuyo married Barazō Mankanshoku and raised two children, Mako, and Matarō. It is unknown if she moved to Honnō City or has always lived there.


Mako Mankanshoku

Mako is Sukuyo’s daughter and eldest child. Like any good mother, she often prepares school lunches for Mako (and Ryūko Matoi). She does appear to be rather oblivious to the dangers her child often faces at Honnōji Academy and supports her daughter's enrollment despite being abducted by the Elite Four.

Barazō Mankanshoku

Barazō is the husband of Sukuyo who she raised her two children with. Despite his attraction to Ryūko, she is not seemingly upset. However, when Ryūko retaliated being peeked on, Sukuyo supported her, even telling her to carry on if it helped ease her.

Matarō Mankanshoku

Matarō is Sukuyo's younger child and son. Although he is young, she doesn't seem to pay much mind to his perverted tendencies and seems to have a 'he'll get what's coming to him' attitude (seen when she encourages Ryūko Matoi to continue). We do see her discipline him outside Stardust electronics via a headlock and threats.

Ryūko Matoi

While Ryūko is only a guest in the home, she is treated as if she was simply another member of the family. Sukuyo holds a fondness in Ryūko for her help in saving Mako Mankanshoku on separate occasions as well as being one of her only friends.

Much like she does for Mako, she willingly prepares a school lunch for her and tends to her laundry. In many ways, Sukuyo takes on the role of Ryūko's mother.


  • The name Sukuyo means "good, fond, pleasing, like something" (好) (suku) and "generation" (代) (yo).
  • Sukuyo's surname Mankanshoku means "full, fullness, enough, satisfy" (満) (man), "ship, warship" (飾) (kan) and "decorate, ornament, adorn, embellish" (飾) (shoku), which literally means "full ship decoration" altogether.
