Minako Kanou is a character in Denpa Kyoushi. She was originally a member of the colour gang 'Black Oracle Neo/BON' with Miho Kitou, Nanami Seijuurou and Komiya Taki, until Kagami told to her in a chatroom : 'If there are no heroes, become one yourself'. Shortly after that, she learnt that the phrase was from an anime, so she created a goal for herself, which was to become a popular voice actress. She started singing anime songs on the rooftop, which caused Miho Kitou to bully her. But after getting a 'lesson' from Kagami Junichirou, they became good friends.
A former delinquent leader of the Black Oracle gang who hated the world, because of its non-existence of heroes. However, after a bit of inspiration from Junichirou where he tells her over an online chat-channel, “If there are no heroes, become one yourself,” she decides to reinvent herself as a voice-actress.
Kanoe has, since then, reappeared during the Nanami arc to help her past friend find a new place in life towards playing soccer, and during the Komiya Twins arc to help stop Takeda’s gang from beating up on the reformed Black Oracle Neo gang led by Taki; another one of her old friends. She later forms a rivalry with Kanan as both are now set on becoming voice-actresses.
