Taro Soramame is Arale Norimaki and Akane Kimidori's "bad boy" friend who always tries to act cool. He has a little brother named Peasuke Soramame who looks up to him and aspires to be like him.
Taro first meets Arale when she followed Akane to meet up with them. Taro tries to intimidate her by punching a soda can, but she breaks a tree with her bears hands, stunning Taro and gaining respect for her. Later on, when the Tsuns come toPenguin Village, Taro falls in love with Tsururin. After graduating from high school, he becomes a police officer (because he is allowed to carry a gun and wear dark glasses all the time).
