Debuko (デブ子 Debu-ko) is a character exclusive to the 1973 anime. She was one of Shizuka's friends and first appeared in Operation Cupid Love Love.


She was one of Shizuka's friends and a character that only appeared in the 1973 anime. Along with her, there was another girl named Jamako. The info on them nowadays is little to nothing. It is unknown why she was scrapped in later animes. Probably, both her and Jamako were made with the purpose of filling space in the episode and its story; and to complete its 10-minute length.


Debuko is a chubby girl with fair skin and brown hair in pigtails. She wears an orange polo T-shirt and presumably a skirt of an unknown color, with socks and shoes of an unknown color, too.



  • Curiously, Debu (デブ) means fat in Japanese, a possible reference to her appearance.
  • Her same possibility Debuko-Chan or Debuka-San
