"I should tell you, here in America, harakiri is not an option. In America, you are expected to live with your mistakes!"
—Sunnyside

Michael Sunnyside (マイケル・サニーサイド, Maikeru sanīsaido) is the owner of the Little Lip Theater and general commander of the New York Combat Revue.

Appearance

Sunnyside is a man with brown bowl-sized hair and grey eyes. He's depicted as wearing glasses as well as a white business suit with a purple tie and a lavender shirt underneath.

Personality

Sunnyside appears as a rich tycoon who lives in a gorgeous mansion in Central Park and goes by the motto "Life is Entertainment!". He's usually seen as a happy man who takes everything lightly much to the annoyance of Cheiron. He takes interest in Japanese culture such as sweets and bonsais and thereby respects Shinjiro who he calls by many names such as ''Shinsky'' and ''Shinmillion'''. He really cares for the people of New York and his workers especially his niece Diana Caprice.

As a business man and Commander of the New York Combat Revue, Sunnyside takes into account that the New York Combat Revue's priority is to protect the people of New York even in the most difficult situations. However, while he has a serious side, he can also use cold logic to protect the city even when it requires cruel and unwanted actions. This is shown when he suggested sending Gemini to psychotherapy to erase Geminine's existence or sacrifice a member of the Five-Rings Warriors to seal away Nobunaga. While he is not a cruel man, his choice of words and logic have shown to create distrust and disgust by the Star Division.

Sunnyside has shown to have a very close relationship with his Vice-Commander Ratchet. While the two have no romantic feelings towards each other, they have a friendly bond that allows them to commande the Star Division. It is shown that Sunnyside's use of cold logic makes Ratchet question how far the Commander will go to create results. While she doesn't like the idea of manipulating people, she stands by Sunnyside and understands that everything he does is for the sake of New York.
