ウメコ Umeko is the fifth member of Tokusou Sentai DekaRanger.

Kodou Koume 胡堂小梅

When partnered with DekaYellow, they're known as the Twin Cam Angels.

Actress: Kikuchi Mika (菊地 美香)

Character[edit]

She has a lively and friendly personality, but has a tendency to spend her times in bubble bathes. She is tight friends with Jasmine, as well as Murphy, which is a mechanical dog that was placed under her care. Unlike others, she does not have a special ability of her own.

Her tendency is to take bubble baths. Her three rubber ducks are named: Umeyo(ウメヨ), Umenosuke (ウメノスケ), Umegorou (ウメゴロウ).

She's the self-appointed leader of the DekaRangers.

As shown in episode 31, there is an alien princess who looks exactly like Umeko.

At the end of the series, she starts going out with Sen after realizing that Sen was protecting her from a swindler Alienizer. We see more of their relationship in the MagiRanger versus DekaRanger movie.

A few years later, during the events of Gokaiger, Umeko appears driving her patrol car in the 199 Heroes movie when she met Ryou from Gosei Sentai DaiRanger and Oume from Denshi Sentai Denjiman. Murphy is in the back seat.
