Kaoru Sugayama is a Japanese volleyball player. Although her nickname is "yuu", Ai Otomo already had that nickname on the All-Japan women's Team, so she was given the new nickname "Kaoru". Her nickname in television broadcasts is "koushuni kagayaku Kaoru-hime", (攻守に輝くカオル姫, translation: "Princess Kaoru who shines in offense and defense"). Also, she is sometimes known as "shiroi yousei" (白い妖精, translation: "White fairy") due in part to her fair skin. However, she is embarrassed to be called "Princess Kaoru" or "White fairy". She belongs to the volleyball team JT Marvelous of the V. League. In May 2008, she retired from the team and from organized volleyball.

Kaoru Kuroki is a Japanese former adult video (AV) performer and a multi-media personality whose role as a media counselor expressing outspoken views on sex and society have drawn comparisons to La Cicciolina and Dr. Ruth. At the height of her popularity, Kuroki's AVs were averaging 17, 000 sales a piece, a huge amount by industry standards, exceeding a million dollars. According to Rosemary Iwamura, "Kaoru changed the image of AV girls; she didn't seem to be making videos because of a lack of options but rather as an informed choice."For bringing the AV industry to the attention of mainstream media in Japan, as well as her polite but frank outspokenness on subjects like sex and censorship, Kjell Fornander calls her "the first high-profile AV actress."She permanently changed the way that the AV industry and AV actresses were viewed by the general public in Japan.

Kaoru Mori is a Japanese manga artist from Tokyo. She is the creator of the successful manga series Emma, A Bride's Story and Shirley. Many of her works are centred on female characters in the 19th century, such as a maid in Victorian Britain and a bride in Turkic Central Asia. She also writes dōjinshi under the penname Fumio Agata.

Mori is not only famous for her storytelling and art, she is also famous for her unflattering self-portraits, usually an outline for a body, a head with wild hair, and her hand-drawn highly decorative costumes within her works. She is also shy of making public appearances or giving interviews in person.

It has been announced that the author will be publishing a two-installment spinoff of Shirley in Fellows!, where her latest work Otoyomegatari is also being serialized.

Kaoru is a Japanese musician, best known as the leader and one of the guitarists of the visual kei metal band Dir En Grey. He has been with the group since its inception in 1997 and was previously a member of La:Sadie's. He has composed most of Dir en grey's songs (at least up to the Vulgar album, at which individual credits for the music were dropped). His contributions display a fair amount of variety, ranging from slow ballads such as "Zakuro" to upbeat numbers like "Jessica". He performs many solos for the band, which vary strongly in feeling and tempo, similar to his compositions. Kaoru cites Hide as his biggest influence and the reason he plays guitar, saying "If I had never known him, I wouldn’t be who I am today."Revealing "Kaoru" to be his birth name in his book Dokugen (読弦), he's the only Dir En Grey member with a known real name.
