Koharu is very small in stature. She has long violet hair with an anntenna at the top. Her hair is usually tied in low pigtails with blue hair ties. She wears a standard Shihakushō and a black ribbon choker. Underneath the Shihakusho sleeves, there are long white gloves that end at her knuckles. Unlike most Shinigami, Koharu keeps her Zanpakuto on her back. The sheath is attached to a thick, purple sash. She also has a small fang on the left side of her mouth, which is noticeable when she opens her mouth.
5th seat Tanaka is very cheerful and energetic. Occasionally, she scares people when she poppes out behind 6th Divison 5th seat, Hana Takara. Despite her enthusiatstic exterior, she also has a very firery temper. She has a love of cute animals. For example, she keeps a pet piglet named Puhi in the barracks.
She and Hana Takura grew up in district 3, Hakutan. Upon entering the Shin'o Academy, the two met Renji Abarai. Koharu and Hana made up a codename for him. They liked to call him a "Red Pineapple". And he usally got mad at them.
