Michio Hanmyouji (ハンミョウジミチオ) is a charismatic taxi driver in Susutake Village. He self titles himself "The taxi driver of love and justice." He drives Koishimaru around several times. Although prone to speaking passionately, he is a considerate type and gives Koishimaru free rides. The first time they meet, he gave Koishimaru a deodorant spray so he would not embarass himself on his first day of school, after Koishimaru was pushed into the cesspool next to the field near the bus stop.
TriviaWhen Koishimaru misses the bus at the beginning of the game, the player is given the choice of waiting an hour for the next bus, or running all the way to school. Both of these choices lead to Koishimaru meeting Michio for the first time and being driven to school.
- If the player chooses to run to school, Koishimaru will run for a while before collapsing at the side of the road. Michio will spot him while driving and pull over to make sure he is alright before offering a ride.
- If the player chooses to wait for the bus, Michio will pull up next to the bus stop, ask what Koishimaru is doing there and offer a ride.
