Kaoru Koda (香田 薫 Kōda Kaoru) is a character in the anime and movie franchise Detective Conan.
Kaoru Koda is a camerawoman for the sports entertainment section of the Nichiuri Newspaper who's looking for big scoops.
Koda is an ambitious camerawoman and always looking for new scoops. She is friendly towards the Detective Boys and buy snacks for them. She has good observation skills, as she noticed that Takahiro Sanada was kicking the soccer ball with his right food instead of his usual left foot.
Koda is new to Nichiuri Newspaper and is eager for breakout news, which was why she was one of suspects in the serial bombing case. The bombing footage she provided made the tv ratings go up so she had a motive.
She goes to Takahiro Sanada's soccer game to take pictures and sees the Detective Boys and buy snacks for them as reward for providing her news since they caught a stalker. She notices Sanada is acting odd and shows Conan the photo of Sanada kicking the soccer ball with his left foot, which he usually uses, but only used his right in the game. She tries to take a photo of Sanada scoring a goal, but he misses.
- She bears a strange resemblance with Morio Kouda, the Nichiuri TV scripwriter and murderer in The Half Completed Crime Mystery, and has the same surname kanji. However, despite being very probable, nothing confirms that she is his younger sister.
