[[folder:Kimihito Kurusu]]


-> Voiced by: Creator/JunjiMajima

The protagonist, host of Miia, Papi, Centorea, Suu, Meroune, Rachnera, and Lala, and guinea pig for the inter-species marriage amendment to the exchange program.
* AboveTheInfluence: Despite the various advances by the girls, he never takes advantage of them sexually. Of course it also slightly helps that they're usually displaying ClingyJealousGirl behaviors to prevent any one of them from getting too far ahead of them regarding a relationship with him. Even when Lilith, a lesser devil, outright ''[[MoreThanMindControl hypnotizes him]]'' into giving in to his desires, he still smacks her upside the head and says how wrong that is.
* AccidentalPervert: ''All the time.'' Though he gets beat up for it less than you'd think: most of the girls are either regularly trying to seduce him or not at all adverse to the idea, and thus ''want'' him to act like a pervert.
* AffectionateNickname: Even though the readers know his real name, the girls often make him OnlyKnownByHisNickname, as demonstrated by the following:
** Miia calls Kimihito "Darling"
** Papi calls him "Husband" ("Boss" in the English manga, "Master" in the anime − in Japanese "Goshujin" can mean either husband or master)
** Centorea calls him "Master" ("Milord" in the English manga); Suu does as well, but in English
** Meroune calls him "Sir" ("Beloved" in the English manga, "Master" in the anime)
** Rachnera calls him "Honey"
** Tionishia calls him "Sweetie" ("Snookums" in the English manga)
** Zombina calls him "Babe" ("Loverboy" in the English manga)
** Manako calls him "Dear"
** Doppel calls him "Bae"[[note]]Short of "babe" in American English slang. Not to be confused with the Korean surname.[[/note]]
** Ms. Smith calls him "Darling-kun" to pick on him.
* AlliterativeName: '''K'''imihito '''K'''urusu.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl:
** He actually racks up a pretty surprising number of crimes all to protect the girls from random people, the government, and themselves. Assault, lying to the police, harboring an illegal alien, stealing a truck, etc. He gets away with it because for the most part Ms. Smith just doesn't care.
** In chapter 15, he actually thinks that this has finally caught up with him, assuming that the police are after him for attacking the director, not even considering that it might actually be Rachnera they were after.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. The night the girls are all driven crazy with lust, he has a minor FreakOut saying he's "not ready and still a virgin" showing nervousness at the prospect of his first time. He tries to insist this is actually the case when Rachnera teases him about the possibility that he's a virgin. It's blatantly obvious that he's lying.
* BadBadActing: Chapter 40 shows that Kimihito is not very good at acting.
* BadassNormal: While he's your average human ([[MadeOfIron for certain values of "average"]]), he quite often goes out of his way to assist and protect the girls in dealing with far less pleasant humans in incredibly impressive ways, often with a MegatonPunch.
* BerserkButton: As revealed in the [[http://i.imgur.com/deq7x4K.jpg volume 6 omake]], the girls had never seen Darling [[SinisterSilhouettes so]] [[GlowingEyesOfDoom angry]] until [[spoiler:Lala played with her food instead of eating it. Miia and Papi witness a major scolding so terrifying that they'll wash their dishes without complaints.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Perfectly civil and friendly with people he has no problem with. If you mess with his friends, however... Well, see the [[MegatonPunch page picture]] of the [[Awesome/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl Awesome Moments page.]]
* BlankWhiteEyes: Pretty much the default setting for his eyes. The only time when you see his actual eyes are when he's shocked or being serious, which occurs more frequently as the story has progressed, though still not more often than the blank eyes.
* ABloodyMess: In their excitement, Miia, Papi, and Centorea tackled Kimihito when he was rummaging through the fridge. Cue him lying on the ground with red liquid pooling around him. Turns out it was only ketchup, but the girls were ''horrified''.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Does this in chapter 8 after Centorea says she'll protect him from the slime.
-->'''Kimihito:''' I haven't seen this in a while. Since chapter 4, I think?
* BrickJoke: His mention of having a leg fetish from an extra gets brought back up again in chapter 15. Rachnera assumes that her spider half disgusts him, and that he was only turned on from her human-like parts. He insists that she's wrong, [[FreakinessShame that her legs are actually very charming]], followed by "leg man" showing up by him in sparkles.
* ButtMonkey: He always gets caught in his harem's antics or gets hurt as a result of their aggressive affections.
* CatharticScream: Shoves his head inside Suu's body and screams at the top of his lungs when he learns that [[spoiler:The Organization will cover all living expenses, basically meaning he put himself through hell all throughout chapter 25 for nothing.]]
* CelibateHero: At first, he is explicitly forbidden by law from starting a relationship with any of the girls living in his house, and with very little exception it's the girls who push to start one. Even during the initial "marriage" subplot, his first impulse was to turn Ms. Smith down rather than take advantage. That being said, he seems to find all the girls quite attractive, and would have willingly consummated things with Miia some time ago had circumstances not intervened. Yes, they come onto him, but he has a tough time really being against it. By chapter 30 he outright admits to himself he would like to be married to any one of the girls, which makes the idea of choosing all the harder.
* ChickMagnet: Initially you could count the girls who ''weren't'' interested in him on one hand, though this number has increased substantially as the manga progressed.
* CovertPervert: Yes, he has incredible self-control in regards to the girls coming on to him, but he's been inflicted with numerous {{Nosebleed}}s and his inner monologues makes it plain their advances are resonating with him. And according to one of the anime shorts, he keeps a porn stash under his mattress.
* CrazyPrepared: When Suu is on her water-absorbing (and [[ImmodestOrgasm orgasm-inducing]]) rampage in chapter 10 she leaps at Mero. Kimihito immediately produces a large plastic garbage bag to catch her mid-flight and contain her.
-->'''Kimihito:''' I really am used to this...
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Chapter 14 marks the second time he's laid out a grown man with one punch, both brought on by the recipient of said punch antagonizing one of the girls in some way.
* {{Determinator}}: While he could be said to have this in general, it's taken to an extreme in chapter 30. Determined to accept all the girls' feelings, he decides to not tell them to stop when they go too far. This results in multiple near-death experiences, which he apparently only survives because he is so determined to accept the girls that he refuses to die. [[spoiler:According to Lala, he was doing the same thing during his close calls in previous chapters, and it was one of the things that caught her attention about him. It seems to literally be a super-power that Lala doesn't really explain. However, his body can't keep up with his determination, so he is now working on strengthening it.]]
* DudeWheresMyReward: He just barely manages to save Suu's life and Papi calls out to him, flying in like she's going to hug him, and goes right past him to hug Suu. Made even meaner by the fact that he managed to hijack the nearby [[ThoseTwoGuys racist pair's]] truck, get it off the bridge, and into the river below to catch Suu, in a matter of ''seconds.''
* FeeFiFauxPas: He tries very hard to avoid this. An extra in Volume 3 has him worrying about what kinds of food he can bring into the house anymore, assuming he has to stop buying chicken, chicken stock, fish, fish broth, and canned tuna due to Papi and Meroune. Mero's fine with fish, as seaweed alone is not a good diet and compares fish for Mermaids to cows and pigs for Humans, and Papi is "totally okay with cannibalism".
* FriendToAllChildren: During chapter 38, he played regularly with the hospitalized children while the doctors tried to figure out just what kind of condition allows him to survive everything he goes through. Partly because he was bored being confined to bed-rest, partly because, hey, they're sweet kids.
* GotVolunteered: Ms. Smith pretty much just dumps "problem cases" at his house. Of the girls he deals with, only Miia and Meroune are actually "normal" homestays (for a given definition of the word, given the former's repeated attempts to break the rules to sleep with him and the latter's special needs due to her biology). All of the others are either chronic runaways (Papi, Lala), have past histories of violence (Centaurea, Rachnera) or just in an extremely legally problematic situation (Suu) that are left with him because of his proven ability to keep house with even difficult personalities. To make it worse, she first dropped Miia with him ''by mistake'', and he was too much of a NiceGuy to kick her out. Everything sort of snowballed from there.
* HonorBeforeReason: Defending Zombina from harm, despite the fact she doesn't need the protection, because the fact she's a girl in danger matters more than her being a zombie.
* HouseHusband: He enjoys cooking, cleaning, and sewing. His skills are useful when the monster girls get clothes that need adjusting.
* ImagineSpot: Kimihito has one where he almost consummates his relationship with Miia, only for a SWAT team to break into his house and point guns at him. [[BrickJoke The next chapter, when they end up in a love hotel, it actually happens.]] And during the girls' [[{{Lunacy}} full moon driven heat]] he gets one that shows what would happen if he broke down and let the girls have their way with him when they are unable to control their strength. It ain't pretty. [[spoiler: He also recognizes Lala's overactive imagination because it was something he used to do himself when he was young.]]
* ImagineSpotting: Kimihito can apparently see and make remarks on Miia's fantasies about him.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: When Lilith attempts to hypnotize him into releasing his inhibitions, he ends up getting hypnotized into demanding she stop it with the seduction already.
* InvulnerableKnuckles: Considering how durable the guy is, it's notable that he doesn't seem to have these: after clocking the racist guy the anime version shows that his fist is clearly raw, and in the very next scene Smith is treating him; he didn't brace his wrist properly and ended up hurting himself more than the guy he punched.
* IronButtMonkey: In true form. Lala's debut is a '''giant''' lampshade of this. [[spoiler:Chapter 30 reveals he's not so much invulnerable as he is so determined that he somehow refuses to die, which somehow brings him back largely unhurt.]]
* KubrickStare: He combines his usual BlankWhiteEyes with DullEyesOfUnhappiness and HiddenEyes while looking at the Director this way after punching him out. Ignore what he's saying at the time and it'd seem like he's about to outright murder the guy. The second Miia talks to him though, he switches back to his usual cheerful BlankWhiteEyes look.
* MadeOfIron: Good thing too, as the guy takes a hell of a lot of physical abuse between the girls, even if they don't mean to hurt him.
** Hilariously lampshaded in Chapter 38. All that abuse and potentially lethal injuries did not even leave a dent on him, utterly confusing the doctors.
* MeaningfulName: His given name can be translated to public figure. As in the guinea pig to see whether or not the interspecies marriage amendment to the Cultural Exchange Between Species Law is viable or not. Incidentally, 主公人 looks like 主人公 (shujinkou, "main character"), and his family name basically means "where people come and stay".
* MegatonPunch: As shown in [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom two]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome separate]] moments, he has a mean right hook.
* MistakenForRacist:
** Because she's running off of what she heard from the director, including the false belief that he had smashed Papi's egg into the director's face rather than a chicken egg, Rachnera assumes that he's just pretending to be a decent person but actually discriminates against extraspecies.
** The assumption is made once again by Manako, as most people are apparently never willing to directly look at her out of annoyance or fear. When he's able to look her directly in the eye (and rather easily, at that) she begins to panic in embarrassment.
* NearDeathExperience: He has had several through the series. He even sees [[AfterlifeAntechamber part of the afterlife]] in Chapter 30 [[spoiler:where Lala is waiting and watching. It turns out his experiencing these for completely noble and selfless reasons is what drew her to meet him in person]].
* NiceGuy: The driving force behind each of the girls falling in love with him, and the reason Ms. Smith keeps leaving "difficult" homestays at his house: Kimihito can get along with ''anyone''. Unfortunately, this is {{Deconstructed}} as well: the trait is also his biggest weakness in that it can make him incredibly indecisive, as he tries to please everyone. While he usually finds a way to make it work, the issue of finding a girl to marry is a whole 'nother ball game...
* ObliviousToLove: Averted: he's well aware of the girls' feelings and tries his hardest not to hurt anyone's feelings or show blatant favoritism to any of the girls at any time. He also freely admits to himself that he'd enjoy being married to any of them.
* OldShame: InUniverse: [[MrImagination he had a wild imagination]] in middle school. This helps him later in life to identify Lala's death talk as just delusions. When questioned by Ms. Smith if he was like that as well he tries to deny it.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His actual name is mentioned only once or twice, otherwise it's always one of his nicknames. This trope has gone meta, with many readers only remembering his nickname.
* OnlySaneMan: As is standard with a harem-genre protagonist. Doesn't help that the only authority figure we've seen so far is little better than his harem.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: He gets really uncomfortable around naked women. When Lilith tried to seduce him by stripping, he repeatedly told her to put some clothes on. When Doppel offers to do anything he wants, his only request is for her to wear actual clothes. [[{{Irony}} Which embarrasses the hell out of her.]]
* ScrewDestiny: Immediately after his TemptingFate, he walks out into traffic, and nothing hits him.
--> '''Kimihito''': Got it? There's no such thing as fate! And seriously, I'm on the brink of death every single day!
* SupremeChef: He's described as a very good chef by Smith in chapter 17, though we don't get to see any of the things he makes until Chapter 25. Happens again in Chapter 35, where he manages to make some impressive dishes out of stingrays of all things.
* TakingTheBullet:
** Takes an attack from a fake sword meant for Centorea.
** He also takes three tranquilizer bullets in chapter 5, when he jumps in front of the girls.
** Takes a hit from Cici while defending Zombina in chapter 39.
* TeenyWeenie: The subject of several jokes in Chapter 31, though whether or not it's due to the cold weather is up for grabs.
* TemptingFate: In Chapter 24 he says several things in rapid succession that get called Death Flags in order to disprove Lala's claims.
--> '''Kimihito''': You guys are way too gullible!... In the first place that girl's not even... hmmm... Miia. If, '''IF''' I make it back alive, we're getting married! I'm not sticking around here! I'm going home! I'm not afraid of anything anymore!
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: [[spoiler:According to Lala in Chapter 30, he repeatedly died, but came back to life every time.]]
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: When next to Centorea, Rachnera and Tionishia in any case. He's shown to be fairly average height, though a bit on the shorter side.
* UnfazedEveryman:
** With a few exceptions, he is a largely open-minded and tolerant individual who takes the many bizarre things that happen to him more-or-less in stride. Most of the girls find this ''very'' attractive, even when they don't live with him or fall for him.
** Even being hooked around the neck with a scythe merely registers to him as "something was off", and he casually turns around to find out what it was about.
** Exceptions seem to include when his household responsibilities are threatened (i.e. the prospect of not getting enough food for everyone really upsets him), as well as the girls acting out of character (he outright panics when Papi begins explaining in detail harpy society and the situation with her mother).
* UnluckilyLucky: On one hand, he regularly survives grievous injuries with no lasting effects. On the other hand, a person that was really lucky wouldn't get those injuries in the first place.
* UnwillingSuspension: Rachnera does this to him twice. Once while he was unconscious, letting him down when he mentions the blood flowing into his head, and again shortly after, rigging the webbing so that if he spit out her webbing he'd fall. She does it yet again to him in chapter 30, though under purely playful conditions.
* {{Workaholic}}: He's so used to doing housework all the time that he's actually uncomfortable when he doesn't have anything to do. When the kitchen staff in Chapter 35 were in jeopardy, he immediately helps them out, cleans several stacks of dishes, and even asks if there's more he can do. This prompts Rachnera to call him a workaholic.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Lala arrived to inform him that he's currently on the brink of death. He's fully aware of it, as he's on the brink of death daily. He's also aware it's just an act, and that [[SubvertedTrope she's not really a grim reaper]], just a silly dullahan with a wild imagination... [[ObfuscatingStupidity Or not]].]]

[[folder:Kuroko Smith]]


-> Voiced by: Creator/YuuKobayashi

Kimihito's cultural exchange coordinator, and the leader of MON. Rather lazy when it comes to her job, yet she still seems to have no problem dumping girls off on Kimihito and using him as a guinea pig for amendments to the exchange program's rules.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Chapter 11 is focused on her and her Special Forces Squad.
* AllThereInTheManual: Her first name has not been said in the manga or anime, but was revealed with official merchandise
* AmbiguouslyBi: She clearly has a bit of a thing for Kimihito, but she also spent most of the jousting match in chapter 29 enjoying the sight of Centorea and her mom's boobs bouncing.
* BeleagueredBureaucrat: The reason she's so lazy and irresponsible is because her job is a rotten combination of demanding and thankless.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She may be a bum at times, but she's absolutely terrifying when she suspects someone's breaking the rules or threatening to harm someone.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite the fact that she can be lazy and forgetful, and routinely bums for food ([[MustHaveCaffeine or coffee]]) or messes with Kimihito for the fun of it, Smith is very good and proactive at her job as the coordinator. She also runs MON, which is effectively ''a second'' full-time job.
* CheshireCatGrin: A mischievous, teasing smirk ([[PerpetualSmiler which she wears constantly]]) is her trademark expression.
* CoolShades: To go with her traditional government agent's uniform.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: When {{the glasses come off}} and she's exceptionally pissed off at the last orc still standing in Chapter 11.
* DynamicEntry: Fond of these, whether it's kicking down a love hotel door or jumping through Kimihito's bedroom window.
* FashionableAsymmetry: In the very beginning her bangs cover one eye just short of PeekABangs. The [[ArtEvolution art quickly evolves]], however, and she's currently symmetrical.
* FirstNameBasis: With most of the cast, even though she does interact with them non-professionally. As for Kimihito, she calls him by his name once and then starts to casually call him Darling, just because. Hilariously her phone info for him has him labeled as "Darling-kun".
* FriendToAllChildren: Ms. Smith is shown to be very kind and caring to children, as shown when she and M.O.N. rescue a bunch of extraspecies children from kidnappers in a flashback in chapter 20, and her interaction with Yuuhi in chapter 38 [[spoiler:after her transformation into a zombie.]]
* TheGlassesComeOff: When she's off duty. Or hurting someone.
* IdiotHoudini: Kimihito suffers no end due to her irresponsibility, and she never suffers for it. This finally backfires on her in chapter 13: she left her coworkers to cover her at work while saying it was to keep the other girls away from Kurusu while ill to avoid a viral mutation, when in fact she just wanted to slack off. Once she catches his cold, her coworkers refuse to help her for the same reason she gave them.
* TheLadette: She's grossly irresponsible at her job, constantly bums off Kimihito for meals, and her own apartment's a sty.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After using Kimihito's sickness as an excuse to avoid paperwork and dump it on MON, she's left to take care of herself when she becomes sick.
* LastNameBasis: She's only referred to as Ms. Smith in the manga and anime. [[http://s13.postimg.org/r7kqlk60n/1442081515644.jpg If this piece of merchandising is canonical]] her full name is Kuroko Smith.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: In a number of chapters, she seems to enjoy getting up in Kimihito's face without warning. Whether because it unsettles him or because Smith has a more-than-professional interest is anyone's guess.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Implied as the reason she still has her job.
* PointyHairedBoss: A huge part of Kimihito's problems comes from how irresponsible she is. However, there is a bit of a hint in chapter 10 that [[BeleagueredBureaucrat she does this because she's overworked already and never gets a raise for what she already does. Considering that we've seen her do all the things she rattles off, she may very well be telling the truth,]] and to her credit, when she's actually doing her job, she's pretty damn competent. The hunch was pretty much confirmed with Chapter 11.
--> '''Ms. Smith:''' I have a lot of different jobs. Looking for home stays, working as the extra-species exchange ministry's gun...er, as security and surveillance, putting new experiments into practice...but I never get a raise for it. So I'm not gonna deal with this! Illegal entry? New species? Not my job! That's why I won't define "slime" as extra-species!
* PsychoticSmirk: Sports a small, but very ominous, one when dealing with the orc leader.
* RapunzelHair: Has waist-length black hair.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Zigzagged. She often forgets to mention new stuff to Kimihito regarding the homestay program, causing problems that could have been avoided, such as being reimbursed for food expenses for the girls. And though she tends to lump a lot of responsibility, and new monster girls, onto him, she does at least try to help get his house refurbished to accommodate the new guests, and helps take care of a lot of behind the scenes activities as well as the mundane paperwork.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: "[[BlatantLies Doppel]]" stays behind with the orc leader to "[[SoundOnlyDeath punish]]" him [[ItsPersonal for making her job harder]], while [[BodyDouble Doppel leaves as her]].
* ShesGotLegs: She even lampshades it when Kimihito reveals he has a leg fetish in an extra chapter and the Anime sure loves to focus on them when they are bare.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Her name was mistranslated in the first chapter as "Sumike" in the fan translation, most probably due to the translator confusing the katakana for ''ke'' (ケ) with that for ''su'' (ス). It doesn't help that her name is still written in kanji.
* TokenHuman: She's the only known human member for MON, though the nature of the group leaves her to ''typically'' just be the face of the group while the extraspecies members handle the work.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: [[MustHaveCaffeine Coffee]], specifically Kimihito's coffee. The cheap instant coffee during a meeting is regarded as awful, the cheap instant coffee at his house ''the best''.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: For her tranquilizer gun.
* YourDoorWasOpen: She has a tendency to simply appear without warning or explanation, notably in the first chapter where the reveal that she's present startles Kimihito and again showing up suddenly among the rest of MON in Chapter 11.

!!Monster Girls Living With Kimihito

[[folder:In General]]

[[caption-width-right:300: Our Beloved Monster Girls Harem From Top To Bottom Clockwise: Rachnera, Suu, Papi, Miia, Centorea, Meroune]]

'''In General'''
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The first three girls, Centorea, Papi and Miia (though they actually debuted in the opposite order).
* ClingyJealousGirl: Miia is the most overt case, but most of the others have shown this to varying degrees.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Duh.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: Everyone but Rachnera and Lala have difficulty holding their strength back, which often results in Kimihito being injured. When {{Lunacy}} strikes Miia, Papi, ''and'' Centorea at the same time, they all suffer from this, thus leaving Kimihito facing a very real risk of [[spoiler:[[OutWithABang literally getting killed during intercourse]] if the temporarily lust-crazed girls manage to capture him long enough to have their way with him]].
* {{Foil}}: Miia and Meroune, Papi and Suu, and Centorea and Rachnera. This gets played up in the various date chapters.
** Happens again in the vacation chapters, only with different combinations. This time, it's: Miia and Rachnera, Centorea and Papi, and Mero and Suu.
* ALizardNamedLiz: Their names are all indicators of their species, but not exact matches.
* MsFanservice: Nearly all girls.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: When Rachnera arranges to move in, it cuts back to the house showing Miia, Centorea, Meroune, and Suu looking horrified, and the first three all thinking "I just got the feeling '''another''' rival is about to show up...". Papi, as usual, seems to either not notice or not care.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Oh so much, but particularly Miia.
* PrettyFreeloaders: They all live with Kimihito and usually have him do all the household chores and cook for them. Over time they try to do more work around the house, but their unusual bodies and just plain ineptness in some cases mean trying to do chores just makes more work. They can at least be pretty good at simple cleaning, as shown when they were preparing for the mothers to visit.
* RescueRomance: So far Kimihito has, at least once, ended up rescuing or protecting each member of his harem. Each time either being what caused them to fall for him or, in the event that they already had, to display their affection much more openly.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Each of the girls fell in love with Kimihito by his acts of kindness:
** Miia: The first human she met outside of the exchange program officials/agents (who don't count, as they're probably keeping a strictly professional distance), whose first reaction to her was '''not''' to shun her for being a monster girl, but to be ''concerned'' about her getting cold due to her snake-like physiology[[note]]So much that the first actual thing he does for her on her first day in his house is get her a big blanket to warm up the snake part of her body, because she was obviously discomforted by the air conditioning.[[/note]].
** Papi: Saved her from a fall while she rescued a child, as well as lied to a police officer that he was her host to prevent her deportation.
** Centorea: [[TakingTheBullet Took a sword slash]] for her against a mugger while she was unarmed and stunned.
** Suu: Despite appearing out of nowhere, cared for her as one of his own, even going as far as saving her from a rainstorm.
** Meroune: Saved her from her runaway wheelchair as well as a moisture-hungry Suu, [[SecretTestOfCharacter all before she revealed herself as a mermaid and his newest resident]].
** Rachnera: Treated her like a normal girl, in spite of her appearance, and refused to assume the worst of her in a very dangerous situation.
** Lala: As a [[MadeofIron Made of]] IronButtMonkey, Kimihito's resilience, strength and determination to overcome death [[spoiler:with or without her help]] got her attention. His compassion, kindness and selflessness for everyone clinched it, though.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's... a little complicated.
** '''At first''', Miia, Centorea, and Suu's names have been romanized as "Miia", "Centorea", and "Suu" by the fan-translator.
** '''Then''' came Chapter 10, where the cover image revealed that the author apparently intended for the names to be romanized as "Meer" [[note]]which actually makes sense, as by Japanese transliteration rules, the katakana version of that is ''Miia''[[/note]], "Centaurea", and "Sue". (Papi is still romanized as "Papi", BTW)
** However, [[http://monstermusume.blisswater.info/2013/01/04/everyday-monster-girls-chapter-10/#comment-857 the fan translator insists on adhering to the "Miia" spelling]] because they consider the official one to be a "terrible" choice as 1) it's a boy's name... in ''Hindi''; and 2) for some reason they believe that it's too much of a stretch to get "Miia" (the romaji form) out of "Miia".
** From there, it appears the fan-translator decided that it would unfair/inconsistent to make an exception for her alone, and thus all three are still referred to as "Miia", "Centorea" and "Suu" in the fan translation.
** ''Finally'', Volume 1 of the manga got an official English translation, in which the names are spelled "Miia" and "Centorea," and Volume 2 has "Suu" and, adding in another example, "Meroune Lorelei" as "Meron Lorelei" (which is '''then''' rendered as "Meroune Lorel'''a'''i" in volumes 4, 5 & 8).
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: Of the three girls who are in love with Kimihito, Papi is the Child because she is joyous, absent-minded, and a bit naive; Centorea is the Wife because she is incredibly honorable and chivalrous, as well as unerringly loyal to Kimihito; and Miia is the Seductress because she is very flirtatious, trying to seduce Kimihito on multiple occasions. They do however occasionally take on other aspects, and as the harem grows and they start trying to compete pinning one trait to any one of them becomes pretty much impossible.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Several of the girls dwarf Kimihito by size, generally through their full length (Miia, Mero) or through body mass (Centorea, Rachnera). Suu in adult mode is a more straightforward example.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Despite their fierce competition for Kimihito's heart, they are for the most part friends (Centorea and Rachnera aren't too fond of each other). Papi and Suu in particular are inseparable.


[[caption-width-right:263:Miia and her cuddling habit]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/SoraAmamiya

Miia is a lamia and the first girl that Ms. Smith just dumped off on Kimihito. It didn't take long for her to fall in love with him and she has little problem turning on the charm to try to get him to make a move.
* AccidentalPervert: In Chapter 31, she accidentally grabs Kimihito's towel while they were in the onsen, exposing him to everyone. She's clearly sorry about it.
* AndCallHimGeorge: Kimihito is constantly injured by the affections of Miia, who constricts him ''hard'' with her tail every time she hugs him.
* ArtEvolution: When the series started, Miia's scales extended up around her "hips" in the rear, but eventually these scales were scaled back to give her a more human-looking "butt." The question remains if it serves a function aside from being attractive and being something to sit on.
* BareYourMidriff: Not to the extent as Mero, but she finds a way to do this pretty often: she's outwardly stated that her hips are her best feature; they're kept shapely from the swaying movement that comes with having a snake tail. Chapter 27 displays that this is common amongst Lamia.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Wanted to be princess-carried by Kimihito in Chapter 12. Cerea points out that it would be impossible (due to her weight). She gets her wish anyway [[spoiler: when he has to rescue her from the bottom of the pool.]]
* BlatantLies: Claims that the Homestay Rules clearly state that the first girl to begin their stay at a home has privilege, basically saying she has officially-sanctioned first dibs on Kimihito. Centorea calls bull, but Papi buys it.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Miia came off as much more ditzy when she had Kimihito all to herself (particularly in her complete inability to recognize when [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength her tail is squeezing too hard]]), with her [[ClingyJealousGirl temper]] becoming a more prominent trait with each new girl in the house.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She really hates it when other girls get close to her "Darling". It gets worse with each new "rival".
* CordonBleughChef: Miia has an incredible lack of judgment in cooking. Her recipe for white rice gruel includes things such as white peach, white icefish, and ''white chocolate'' (in other words, ingredients chosen simply because they were white). And later, she added peanut butter to ''miso soup'' on the basis that she thinks it looks like miso. Just one of the reasons she's the LethalChef in residence.
* CuddleBug: Miia's cold-blooded, and likes snuggling with warm-blooded people (usually Kimihito) to get heated up. Unfortunately, she tends to forget that she's descended from animals that literally crush prey to death doing this and needs to hold back her strength, much to Kimihito's pain and dismay.
* CuteLittleFangs: Really prominent when her cuteness factor is high. Her open mouth is usually drawn with a single upper canine visible.
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler: An omake reveals her human father ran off soon after being forced into impregnating her mother (he simply hated snakes too much to stick around, the lamia's sexual skills and beauty not being enough to keep him there). This does not appear to have caused Miia any real problems though, as there is no evidence that lamia fathers are expected to play any major role in their daughter's lives (since they traditionally end up having a lot of daughters).]]
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: Miia tends to strangle or constrict Kimihito to the breaking point by accident. Kimihito even reacts to her friendly pats on the back like he's getting punched. Then there's the shedding scene. [[NeckSnap Pop goes the spinal column.]] You could make a drinking game of the number of times Kimihito has been accidentally hurt by her.
* EvilIsHammy: As "Cobra Miia" in Chapter 32.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: She has [[AnimalEyes slitted snake pupils]], a normal trait for lamiae, though it becomes much more prominent when [[HellishPupils she's mad]] -- or really deep in [[{{Lunacy}} full moon-induced lust]].
* ExtremeOmnivore: She can eat [[LethalChef her own cooking]] without any negative effects, partly because, as a carnivore, her sense of taste is so weak compared to most of the cast.
* {{Fangirl}}: Of the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series, if her frequent cosplays as Solid and Naked Snake are any indication.
** Well, she IS a snake person after all.
* FantasticArousal: Her tail, specifically the tip. She was also very clearly aroused when Kimihito helped peel her scales off when she was shedding. The first chapter has Kimihito accidentally do this in an attempt to get her off him.
* FieryRedhead: The most passionate and romantic of the girls in Kimihito's harem, and the only redhead in it.
* FirstGirlWins:
** While nothing has been set in stone, she is the favorite of both the majority of the fanbase and the author, and she's the most open to Darling. Really, it's more that she's built up to be the winner enough that her not winning would seem ''more'' contrived.
** She invokes this herself to the other guests (see BlatantLies above).
** [[spoiler: This seems to be the case as of Chapter 24, with Kimihito telling her if he survives he's going to marry her. It was most likely [[PlayingWithATrope not serious]], as it gets pointed out immediately after he's saying multiple things in rapid succession that are all [[TemptingFate Death Flags]].]]
* FreakinessShame: She shows embarrassment when Kimihito sees her shedding. "Darling" tells her A) it's natural for her to shed and B) he's already seen her naked and this is less embarrassing for both than that (except it's not as lamia find being seen shedding far more embarrassing than nudity).
* GirlyBruiser: Well, considering that she's an extraspecies, the incredible strength is a given (most of her internal organs are assumed to be in her human torso, leaving her snake part to being almost entirely muscle and bone). Miia however has proven herself to be capable at climbing trees, and judging by a couple of scenes where she goes into stances before a fight she apparently knows some manner of martial art. She's even a capable enough swimmer to keep up with a ''mermaid'', though that was very reliant on clever tricks rather than pure athleticism.
* GodivaHair: In the anime (the manga freely displays nipples), her hair is used to cover her breasts occasionally.
* HairDecorations: She wears a pair of D-shaped hair clips. They even serve as her emblem in the anime.
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: Drastically lowers the temperature of the room she's currently in to try making Mero uncomfortable. She's the only one who has any issues with cold. Papi and Centorea aren't sure if she was going to kill herself or just end up hibernating, but Kimihito fixes the temperature before they can find out.
* HotBlooded: Despite being physically cold-blooded, she's extremely passionate in what she does (i.e. wooing Kimihito). Ms. Smith even mentions it's a trait with lamiae.
* ImagineSpot: Miia does this a lot, but the one in Chapter 3, where she remembers an event in the previous chapter but modifies Kimihito into a HotBlooded and {{Badass}} hero complete with HandWrapsOfAwesome, probably takes the cake.
-->'''Kimihito:''' [[ImagineSpotting Is that supposed]] [[LampshadeHanging to be me?!]]
* ImmodestOrgasm: And before you're even ten pages into the story, too.
* InLoveWithTheMark: While she's not an assassin, her mother's chapter reveals she was sent out on a sinister mission. [[spoiler:Namely to capture a human male so that he could become the community's sex slave. However, Miia decides fairly quickly that she wants Kimihito for herself.]]
* LethalChef:
** Her cooking is the stuff a chef's nightmare's nightmares have nightmares about. Kimihito, Papi and Centorea find this out the hard way when Miia, trying to "teach" herself how to cook (by "emulating" what she saw from Kimihito's own cookwork in the kitchen), tests her culinary creations on Papi and Centorea, and ''incapacitates'' them for an entire chapter. Kimihito initially assumes that the food she made was [[ForeignQueasine traditional lamiae cuisine]] and ate it all.
** In chapter 13, Meroune eats some of her food, and the taste [[ImagineSpot brings to her mind]] [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments the idea]] of how it would feel to have her ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext fins torn apart]]''. ([[DontExplainTheJoke In context]], it's a reference to the Sea Witch's potion in Little Mermaid, which is what Mero's subconscious opinion of the meal is - i.e it's an incredibly dangerous, painful concoction you probably shouldn't put into your mouth.)
** Chapter 25 provides an explanation for Miia's horrible cooking: as a carnivore, Miia's sense of taste is far less sensitive than a human's, making it difficult for her to judge the quality of her cooking.
*** [[CordonBleughChef Although her abysmal judgment when it comes to following recipes and just throwing in whatever ingredients certainly doesn't help.]] Seriously, things like ''fish bones and tentacles'' sticking out of the pots with ''skull-shaped clouds of smoke'' rising up from her culinary efforts should at least give her a clue that she's doing ''something'' wrong!
** In Chapter 26, the ''smell'' of Miia's cooking alone (which Cerea referred to as Miia's "something") was enough to cause Ren to pass out. ''Multiple times!''
* LimitedWardrobe: She's notable in that she's an [[AvertedTrope aversion]]. Compared to the other girls, she has quite a few outfits in a variety of styles. One chapter reveals she orders a lot of clothes online.
* LogicalWeakness: As mentioned in chapter 1, her being part-reptile makes her susceptible to cold temperatures, and she requires warmth to stay healthy. Even in a moderately heated swimming pool, over time she'll become sluggish as she requires a relatively high water temperature.
* LovableSexManiac: She ''really'' wants to get into Kimihito's pants. She even tried to strip Kimihito while he was sick. [[spoiler: When her mother drugs him with a powerful aphrodisiac during her visit, her initial terror quickly fades into lustful anticipation. Amusingly, the same chapter also reveals that her sexual mores are practically ''prudish'' by her culture's standards.]]
* MarshmallowHell: ''Really'' likes doing this to Kimihito. Considering how tight her grip can get, the 'hell' part of it usually becomes the dominant attribute...
* NaughtyNurseOutfit: Wastes no time donning one after finding out Kimihito's sick, and is chomping at the bit to administer 'treatment'.
* NightmareFace:
** Played for laughs: Miia decides to take the initiative saving a kid stuck in a tree in order to impress Kimihito and show up Papi. Unfortunately, when she got to the top, the first thing the kid saw were a pair of HellishPupils, vicious looking fangs and long nails peeking through the leaves.
---> '''Miia''': ''Found you.''
** Another instance in Chapter 6. Considering the context, it was probably meant to come across as "sexy" rather than "scary". But Miia's sudden reveal of her OverlyLongTongue while she's under the effect of {{Lunacy}} could come across as this, particularly as the panel puts her ''mere inches'' from the reader.
* OneNoteCook: Boiled eggs are the one dish she can cook without ruining.
* OurNudityIsDifferent: Witnessing a lamia shedding her skin is far more embarrassing than simple nudity.
* OverlyLongTongue: She wouldn't be a snake without one. It's a human tongue at first glance, but it's actually forked at the end like an ordinary snake's.
* PointedEars: Just one more bit of divergence from the human body type.
* PrehensileTail: Miia's tail is quite dexterous, capable of gripping and manipulating items like a zipper.
* RapunzelHair: It goes past her waist.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She's very, ''very'' intent on showing Kimihito her goods to try and tempt him into actually making a move. Chapter 2 has her gleefully pulling Kimihito into a lingerie shop and taking off her top in front of him, asking his opinion on the bras, and dragging him towards the changing rooms with her. All with a smile on her face.
* SnakePeople: Duh.
* SnakesAreSexy: And she exploits it for all it's worth.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: She looks ''a lot'' like her mother.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: A lamia girl with amber eyes.
* SuperStrength: She can crumple metal in her coils, seemingly not even realizing it when under the effect of the full moon. Justified assuming that unlike a snake, all her major organs are probably up in her human half, making her tail a huge mass of solid muscle and bone.
* TheTease: It becomes clear very quickly that she doesn't give a crap about the [[NoSexAllowed no sex rule]] of the exchange program as she tries seducing Kimihito fairly regularly. She once outright stated, while laying naked on the bed, that she wants him to take her virginity. Hilariously, the chapter with her mother reveals that she's actually rather ''conservative'' about seducing men by lamia standards.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Miia really loves boiled eggs.
* TranquilFury: When she sees Kimihito with a hoof-shaped bruise on his face, she shoots the culprit a DeathGlare that actually manages to get the centaur scared and speaks in a ''horrifyingly calm'' voice.
-->'''Miia:''' Humans and other species may not harm each other.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B. She's sugary-sweet to Kimihito, but she can be violent when provoked (especially by romantic competition, i.e. Papi and Centorea).
* WeaksauceWeakness: Cold. Justified as she's a lamia, i.e. a reptile. It's also dangerous for her to be in large bodies of water for this reason; while she can swim quite well, it's harder to maintain her body temperature in a pool, even if it's a heated one. When she tried swimming in Mero's (non-heated) pool, she froze up and dropped like a stone, almost drowning.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Miia is terrified of severed heads, and therefore does ''not'' react well to Lala the dullahan.
-->**An aversion to TruthInTelevision but doubles with FridgeLogic given her animal motif. Aversion, because USUALLY a snake will try to devour prey head-first; the maneuver's purpose is to suffocate the victim, should it still be alive after being poisoned/wrangled and to minimize injury to the snake. On the other hand, heads, or actually skulls are the hardest part to digest for reptilian, especially snakes. There's been numerous cases of snakes dying from having their prey's skull lodged on their mouth, pressing the windpipe.
* YourSizeMayVary: The length of her tail, which varies from being about twice the length of her upper half to closer to twenty feet, though according to Chapter 17 her body is around eight meters (just over twenty-six feet) long in total. The official measurements at the end of volume 1 state her head to tail length to be "over seven meters."


[[caption-width-right:288:Papi flies wherever she pleases]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/AriOzawa

A harpy and the second girl to end up living with Kimihito. She's childish, both physically and mentally, despite being as old as Miia.
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: The talons on her feet are like butcher knives.
* AdultFear: She watches the girl she saved early in the series get run over by a truck, who was only saved because Suu managed to wrap her up and absorb the force of the impact. Before they can get Suu unstuck from the side of the bridge they were on it collapses, dropping her into the river, and because of Papi's hands not being strong enough to hold people and Suu being slippery she can't do anything but watch her fall.
* AmbiguousInnocence: As Centorea points out, she's nowhere near as young as she looks, and is never above trying to use her apparent naivete as an excuse to jump Kimihito.
* AmbiguouslyBi: In addition to her [[HeterosexualLifePartners relationship with Suu]], [[ItMakesSenseInContext sucking on Kii's breasts is the first solution to depowering her]] that comes to Papi's mind. That said she is openly in love with Kimihito.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Has a short attention span that lasts for mere seconds. After kidnapping Kimihito, she asks him to get some food. As they walk there, she immediately forgets who he was.
* BigSisterInstinct: She's rather protective of Suu, even flying off with her when the others think about giving her up.
* {{Catchphrase}}: In the English manga, she's fond of "no pro", as in "no problem".
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: She tends to focus on completely random minor details. While watching a news report on a hostage situation and how it'll be affecting the Extraspecies Exchange Laws, Miia and Centorea discuss that. Papi, on the other hand...
-->'''Papi:''' Huh? Isn't that Ms. Smith?... That is Ms. Smith.
** When the aforementioned three girls and Mero are watching what appears to be Kimihito's date with Ms. Smith in a cafe, Papi is only focused on how all the waitresses [[{{Meido}} look like Mero]].
* TheDitz: She's a complete idiot, gets distracted ''very'' easily and is extremely forgetful.
-->'''Kimihito:''' [[LampshadeHanging She's a birdbrain]]!
* EroticEating: Her introduction chapter has her sucking on an ice-stick while Kimihito holds it for her in as unsubtle a way as can be, complete with doing it in public and having some splattered all over her.
-->'''Kimihito:''' [[LampshadeHanging This looks rather… inappropriate…]]\\
'''Passersby:''' ''(Stage whispering among themselves)'' What are they doing?/ Don't look!/ He must be doing it on purpose./ I bet he's a perv.\\
'''Papi:''' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Awww, I'm all sticky!]]
* ExtremeOmnivore: One of the ending notes explains that Papi has no sense of taste and will eat anything. She only ever describes food as "good" or "really good". [[LethalChef Miia's cooking]] and vegetables being the exception.
* FemmeFatalons: Her wings have exposed thumbs like a bat each ending in a sharp black claw.
* ForgetfulJones: She tends to forget things almost right away. The few things she does retain are usually misremembered.
* FriendToAllChildren: She's very good with children.
* GiantFlyer: While she's the smallest member of the household, she's still bigger than your average bird, with a wingspan of 4 meters, or ''13 feet''.
* HarpingOnAboutHarpies: Of course.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: After Suu starts living at Kimihito's house, the two of them are rarely seen without the other; she even spends the majority of Chapter 12 trying to find Suu rather than deal with anything else that's going on. The pair are often seen providing various {{Funny Background Event}}s while ignoring the drama from the other girls.
* IdiotHair: ...Well, as unkind as it might be to be blunt about it.
* TheImmodestOrgasm: Papi has one when Suu gets [[BlackComedyRape too touchy]] with her after she gets [[DoubleEntendre wet]]. She also has one when Kii wraps her bondage-style in vines and tightens them.
* InnateNightVision: Averted hard; she has terrible night vision ([[ShownTheirWork like most non-owl birds]]).
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Papi has no concept of modesty, as she dives into a public fountain naked thinking it's a bird bath.
* KindheartedSimpleton: She's a birdbrain, but she's good-natured, friendly and quite a MamaBear to children.
* LogicalWeakness: If her wings are too wet, she becomes unable to fly.
* LoopholeAbuse: Papi tends to forget things whenever she takes three steps. However, if she avoids taking three steps for a while, such as through flying or being carried around, she can keep her train of thought much better.
* {{Malaproper}}: When the police and Ms. Smith are looking for her to have her returned to her host family or deported, Papi tries to explain her situation to Kimihito. Unfortunately, instead of saying "deported," she says "deflowered" (according to the fan manga translation), "aborted" (according to the official manga translation), or "incest" (according to the anime translation).
* MaleGaze: In one of the omakes when Miia, Centorea, and Papi are comparing their best features, Papi is declared the "butt" girl for having the best (humanlike) backside. It's plush too, as Kimihito ([[AccidentalPervert accidentally]]) found out.
* MamaBear: It's noted that her motherly instincts are really strong. She ends up switching between this and BigSisterInstinct depending on the situation. The "mother hen" pun is more or less cemented in chapter 33 when she bonds with a bunch of baby chickens.
* MundaneUtility: Her wings make for a great [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Harpie%27s_Feather_Duster feather duster.]]
* OlderThanSheLooks: Harpies look like young teenagers even as adults [[JustifiedTrope for the sake of flight]]. In reality, she's just as old as Miia, which the latter doesn't take too well when Papi drags Kimihito into the bath together.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Kimihito freaks out when she's actually able to remember and explain the conflict with her mother [[spoiler:(though it turns out to be one big misunderstanding)]].
* PerpetualMolt: She tends to drop feathers whenever she takes flight.
* RealMenEatMeat: Apart from the ice cream in her introduction, Papi has a preference for meat, and in most food scenes she's violently biting down on a large slab of the stuff.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: Her mother's attention span and short term memory are arguably ''worse'' than Papi's.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Of all the girls living with Kimihito, Papi gets the most injuries. She gets a door slammed on her head, she gets a TailSlap in the face from Mero, and she always crashes into things if she flies in the dark.
* SolidGoldPoop:
** Harpies are known, at least by their species, to lay unfertilized eggs from time to time. Said eggs are worth 3 MILLION yen on the black market.
** The official English translation ups this a hundred fold by making it 3 million '''dollars''' instead. [[note]]For those who aren't good with money exchange rates, this is around '''[[UpToEleven THREE-HUNDRED TWENTY MILLION]]''' yen.[[/note]]
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Without her bleached hair, tan and makeup, Papi's mom looks almost identical to Papi. [[spoiler:This becomes a plot point when the letter from Papi's mother contains what appears to be Papi lying naked with an unknown man.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Delves into this sometimes, like when she first introduces herself.
--> '''Papi:''' Papi's Papi the Harpy!
* TooKinkyToTorture: Rachnee wanted to play "games" with Suu and Papi while the others were at the health club, but apparently the end result is Rachnee exhausted and Suu and Papi happily swinging around in arachne webs.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: People whose legs would make pants difficult.
* WingedHumanoid: The "wings-for-forelimbs" variation, but the digits of her wings[[note]]Yes, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_wing#Wing birds do have "hands" in their wings]] in real-life.[[/note]] are somewhat more human finger-like, and thus allow her to hold objects in them, as demonstrated when she was shown holding the Wii Remote in her hand to play with Kimihito's Nintendo Wii. She's not as dexterous with them as humans are with their own hands/fingers, though; she has trouble holding on to an ice cream cone properly, for example.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: With matching blue feathers, too.

[[folder:Centorea Shianus]]

[[caption-width-right:350:Cerea's got back]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/NatsukiAikawa

A centaur and the third girl to move in with Kimihito. Very prim and proper, as expected from a self-proclaimed knight.
* ACupAngst: Despite being quite endowed herself, Centorea expressed discontent when she noticed Cathyl was bustier than her.
* AboveTheInfluence: Holds out longer than anyone else once [[{{Lunacy}} the full moon puts all the girls into a mating frenzy]]... but the key word there is "long''er''." In fact, she holds out long enough to tell Kimihito of the moon's effects, before immediately succumbing to them afterward.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: By most standards, [[SubvertedTrope not really]] as it's a [[NonLethalDeadlyWeapon fake sword]]. But she's skilled enough with it [[ZigZaggingTrope to slice through several barrels effortlessly]] and later a door. A criminal who got a hold of it was able to inflict considerable, but nonlethal, damage to Kimihito.
* ActionGirl: A courageous knight, competent with sword and bow.
* {{Adorkable}}: No, seriously. She has her moments. Just look at her expression when she first holds hands with Kimihito, or giving a HeadbuttThermometer to Kimihito!Suu.
* AffectionateNickname: Only those close to her can call her "Cerea," which Kimihito does.
* AssKicksYou: Accidentally smashing Kimihito with her horse torso is her most common method of inflicting AmusingInjuries on him. She has a tendency to crash into things any time she needs to move backwards or sideways, too.
* BadassAdorable: She IS a brave and competent warrior, but her insecurities, ImagineSpot with Kimihito, and her {{Adorkable}} image make her this.
* BigEater: She usually manages to keep her appetite in check, but if she eats something she really enjoys, she'll gorge herself with reckless abandon. This helped get the entire group banned from a restaurant once. This is probably based on the behavior of real life horses, who will instinctively chow down on whatever food is in front of them until something stops them or they run out.
* BladeOnAStick: She knows how to use lances, including {{jousting lance}}s.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: Although the bow is only seen once. A bow is an odd weapon for a knight, but [[HorseArcher makes sense]] for a centaur knight.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She may think of it as beneath her, but deep down she's just as clingy to Kimihito as Miia is. This comes to the forefront in Chapter 16.
* CourtlyLove: Since she thinks of herself as a knight, she tends to think of her relationship with Kimihito along these lines: she loves him, but expressing that love or pursuing him would be un-knightly.
* CrashIntoHello: Centorea's introduction. She immediately declares that it means Kimihito is her "fated master", [[BecauseDestinySaysSo because a charm said so]] (he just recognized it as a [[LateForSchool manga stock scene]]). She also wonders if she should have put toast in her mouth beforehand. [[spoiler: Played with following the revelation that her desire to serve a "master" is at least partly rooted in not wanting to engage in her people's frankly barbaric breeding practices. She had good reason to want to find a "master" ASAP!]]
* CuteClumsyGirl: Though usually quite coordinated, Centorea becomes very clumsy and accident prone when she's feeling nervous or shy. The fact that her enormous hindquarters tend to smash into things can be a problem.
* DCupDistress: Downplayed. She doesn't show much resentment towards her ample chest, but she gets embarrassed whenever people bring attention to it. She also is utterly incapable of finding a bra that will survive her GagBoobs, partly because she's reluctant to admit her exact size and makes them sound smaller than they really are.
* ExpressiveEars: In chapter 25 they wriggle as she's eating carrots given to her.
* GagBoobs: They're massive (a '''103 I''' bra was tried and found too small, as was one big enough that Papi and Suu were able to ''use the cups for hats'') and quite prone to gags like ThanksForTheMammaries or MarshmallowHell. The huge size is {{justified|trope}} as it's a racial trait to compensate for the fact that centaur babies are bigger than most and require a lot more nourishment.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Her breasts bounce a lot thanks to their size and her lack of a bra. [[spoiler: This actually turns out to be a problem in Chapter 29, as the bouncing keeps throwing off her aim while jousting.]]
* GamerChick: While she hasn't been seen playing games yet, she does admit that her knowledge of many obscure non-human races is heavily informed by video games, such as slimes and [[spoiler: dullahan]]. And when everyone else was either frightened or grumpy when the butler fish asked them to "save the princess," Cerea instantly perked up.
* GilliganCut: In chapter 35, she finds it shameful that Miia gives in to the massage of the eel mermaids, and declares that she would never submit like this. Surely enough, she's reduced to a moaning mess one panel later. The very next chapter features something similar with giant sea anemones.
* GoingCommando: She does not wear panties or a bra because it's a centaur custom, and also because it'd be very difficult to wear panties given the unusual shape of her hindquarters. [[spoiler: Her aim when jousting improves greatly when she starts wearing a bra. Too bad it wasn't big enough.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She's an incredibly honorable and chivalrous self-proclaimed knight.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Turns out that, while Centorea's mother is a centaur, her biological father was human.]]
* HighPressureEmotion: Prone to these in extreme embarrassment, complete with steam billowing off her head. She's also hot enough to burn a table with her body temp.
* HonorBeforeReason: Displays this occasionally, such as how she first felt about Rachnera. Though she is still pretty sensible for an honor-bound knight.
* HypocriticalHumor: Generally, when she tries to act like she's too good for the situation, she'll still fall victim to it. Examples include succumbing to a {{Lunacy}}-induced sex craze right after saying that she wouldn't, getting caught in one of Rachnera's traps in the middle of criticizing Miia for not being alert enough, and the two GilliganCut events mentioned above.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Blue eyes for a good and honorable knight.
* {{Keigo}}: Rendered by scanlations into {{Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe}}. It's been dialed back a bit since her introduction, but returns when she's feeling nervous in Chapter 21.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Tries very hard to be this. Occasionally she succeeds, but more often she ends up as a sympathetic LordErrorProne.
* LadyOfWar: Tries to be one. It works as long as she is emotionally stable, which in a harem comedy series is not that often.
* LargeHam: Has a habit of being melodramatic. She even compares her meeting with Kimihito to the meeting of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Hercules and Chiron]].
* LimitedWardrobe: Aside from the occasional swimsuit, Centorea is always seen wearing a white shirt with a horse-sized black skirt.
* LuminescentBlush: Chapter 29 when she sees exactly ''what'' Kimihito brought to give her an edge over her mother: [[http://mangapark.com/manga/monster-musume-no-iru-nichijou/s1/v5/c29/23 A bra]].
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Miia draws up a diagram explaining everyone's connections when they think the government is after Suu. Centorea's place on this is simply marked as "?".
* OccidentalOtaku: A lot of her assumptions on how things in Japan work are based on anime, manga, and video games. Her room is even designed in a traditional Japanese fashion, complete with tatami mats, in contrast to the rest of Kimihito's modern home.
* OneNoteCook: Cerea, unlike Miia, actually does know how to cook. Unfortunately, it's centaur food, which is large amounts of mostly-raw vegetables. It's very healthy and filling, but also rather bland. In chapter 25 it is revealed that being a herbivore, her sense of taste is 2-4 times more sensitive than a human's, which could justify her food in chapter 21 being rather bland to non-herbivores like Kimihito and Rachnera.
* OnlySaneWoman: In Chapter 12, she more or less spends the entirety of Miia's jealous rampage pointing out just how crazy she's acting. And in Chapter 31, she's the only one who suggests a plan to save the hot springs resort that's actually quite sensible. In general, she's the reasonable girl of the lot, who doesn't try to push Kimihito around as much as the others.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Apparently they're European-styled knights.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl? Check. Foreigner? Check (she's most likely from Europe given her knightly background).
* ProudWarriorRaceGirl: Her race is this in general going by her stories of centaur knighthood. She herself is a downplayed version of this trope.
* RapunzelHair: Her ponytail is nearly as long as her body.
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: She really does try to dress modestly, but is frequently either giving Kimihito MarshmallowHell, being groped by Kimihoto in accidents, or losing her top completely and revealing her breasts. Embarrassment tends to happen after each event.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Aside from her hairstyle, you'd have a hard time telling her apart from her mother.
* SubordinateExcuse: She calls herself Kimihito's servant, but her feelings clearly go beyond that.
* ThanksForTheMammaries: Pretty regularly, especially whenever Kimihito has to hitch a ride and needs a place to... hold on.
* TokenWholesome: Centorea actually dresses and acts very properly. It's just that being stacked like a snow fort makes modesty... difficult. The only person who's even more wholesome is Lala.
* TomboyishPonytail: She ties her hair in a ponytail and she works hard to be a strong and chivalrous knight.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Carrots. Recently red carrots have been her favorite, though it's pointed out she's embarrassed about being around others as she indulges.
* WeaponOfChoice: While she knows how to use a variety of weapons, her preferred weapon is her (fake) sword.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Slimes are not the easiest things to kill despite what [=RPGs=] have told her, much to her disappointment. Later, she assumes "D" might be a "devil," and shows up to her date in full plate armor ready for a fight. [[spoiler: When she ''does'' encounter a devil on her date, it isn't "D", and it isn't what she expected either.]]


[[caption-width-right:342:Suu floats his boat]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/MayukaNomura

A slime girl who just randomly showed up one night at Kimihito's house. She seems to mostly mimic the behavior of those around her.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: When Suu is told she's a VIP, she acts much bossier than she usually does, such as demanding a piggy back ride and requesting drinks from her bodyguards.
* AlienHair: In her humanoid form, she has a mass of green "hair" made of slime.
* AmbiguousInnocence: While she was mostly unaware of right and wrong at first, Suu has ''probably'' figured out more of it as the series goes on, despite continuing with the tentacle rape and such. Notably, she seems to only talk with Kimihito when none of the other girls are watching. Then there was the time she molested Draco, and judging from her facial expression and the way she reacted to Draco's protests, it seemed she knew full well what she was doing.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: After absorbing experimental chemicals she grows to kaiju proportions.
* BiTheWay: As detailed below, she gets very touchy with other girls when water is involved. Of particular note is Papi: Suu kisses the harpy on the lips before having her way with her. [[spoiler: And when all the sea water she soaks up in Chapter 36 gives her a massive maturity boost, she immediately goes after Oct ''and'' Rachnera for her own amusement.]]
* BizarreAlienBiology: Volume 2 comes with an explanation of how she works. Some notable details include that she can store up to a fish tank's worth of water in her bust, her eyes store the information required for her transformations, the short feeler on her head is used for reading others' feelings, and the longer ones are used for "[[BreadEggsMilkSquick grabbing things, absorbing water, and performing tentacle rape.]]"
* BlackComedyRape: She gets very touchy with the other girls when she gets hungry and they get wet, to the point of inducing ImmodestOrgasm. Even a drop of sweat will cause her to violate them. Her response when Draco attacks Kimihito is to go tentacle-monster on her. Yet the girls never treat the fondling assaults as more than an annoyance.
* BlobMonster: She is a slime.
* BreastExpansion: Absorbing plenty of water and becoming "well-fed" causes her to take on an older appearance, including going from mostly-flat to stacked.
* BrokenMasquerade: Prior to her appearance slimes were still considered fictional creatures and, thanks to Ms. Smith not wanting to bother, are still thought of that way outside of the people she interacts with. The other girls didn't even know humanoid slimes actually existed, which made them fictional to both worlds.
* CharacterDevelopment: As in, at some point she actually starts to be an independent character that doesn't just mimic other people's actions. Though whether she gains maturity as the story goes on or she's [[AmbiguousInnocence just very good at hiding it]] is sometimes unclear.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Could explain her actions in chapter 36. [[spoiler: The now MILF Suu comes upon Oct and Rachnera essentially in a bondage war to get each other off to the point of defeat. Rachnera asks for "help" and Suu "helps" them both reach orgasm. Further evidence is when Rachnera and Oct are complimenting each other's skills and Suu asks for their opinion on her techniques.]]
* DirtyMindReading: Uses this on the director when he's filming the girls and asking very inappropriate questions for a documentary such as if they wear underwear. Were it not for her doing this on him, he probably would have gotten away with it, all under the guise of "making a documentary on the homestay program".
* DiscreetDiningDisposal: Miia and Papi feed Suu their plates full of vegetables they don't want to eat, much to Kimihito's chagrin.
* DressedAllInRubber: Wears nothing more than a raincoat and boots. ''[[InnocentFanserviceGirl When]]'' she wears something.
* DroppingTheBombshell: At the end of Chapter 13 she reveals that she can speak in more than just mimicked phrases, as well as her feelings.
--> '''Suu''': Well, it was [[ThirdPersonPerson Suu's]] fault that you caught a cold... I should apologize as well. But Suu doesn't mind! Because she loves her Master!
* TheEmpath: In Chapter 13, the answer to whether or not she could read thoughts from chapter 8 is answered. She's apparently able to figure out the basic emotions of people when she puts her antenna to their forehead. Chapter 25 reveals she can also communicate her own thoughts to others this way.
* ExtremeOmnivore:
** Capable of eating Miia's horrifying food with no ill effect. She can also absorb body fluids and liquid fertilizer.
** She outright states that she can eat anything as long as her body can digest it, encouraging Kimihito not to waste money buying actual food for her.
** Kimihito asks her to help him pick mushrooms due to this. Even after eating a few poison mushrooms, the only side effect is [[TrashTalk poisoning her speech]] and making the water she spews out as an attack poisonous.
** Disposing of unwanted food is one of her "jobs" in the house and she is quite proud of it.
* FingerGun: And she can spray water with it.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In Chapter 8, Kimihito says it would have been a bad thing had Suu absorbed too much water and grown to gigantic proportions. [[spoiler: She does exactly this in Chapter 20.]]
* HandHidingSleeves: When she's in her normal size, the sleeves of her raincoat cover her hands.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: After Suu starts living at Kimihito's house, she and Papi are rarely seen without each other. The pair are often seen providing various {{Funny Background Event}}s while ignoring the drama from the other girls.
* IdiotHair: Has an "antenna" in the shape of it. Though, unlike Papi, she's more childlike and naive than dumb.
* TheIllegal: Her race is a type of liminal currently not fully classified under the Accord and it's assumed she arrived in Japan by some sort of illegal entry. However, Ms. Smith decides Suu is not her problem and lets her live with Kimihito.
* TheImmodestOrgasm: When [[PlantPerson Kii]] the dryad latches roots onto her breasts, Suu has one. She's also prone to causing the other girls to have them whenever she gets thirsty.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Part and parcel of being from a race without any real culture or language whose [[BlobMonster body type]] makes most clothes impossible.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Suu knows about as much about social norms as a newborn child. Hence the... well, look a few tropes up. Whatever brain-to-mouth filter she may possess shorts out when she ingests poisonous materials.
* KryptoniteProofSuit: Gets a waterproof wetsuit in chapter 35 when she needs to enter the water. However, it doesn't cover her head, which Kimihito realizes just a little too late (fortunately, this only results in BreastExpansion).
* LimitedWardrobe: The only clothes Suu ever wears is a raincoat with boots. Justified, since her liquid body would make nearly all clothes unusable for her. The anime even has a short that shows Suu's closet is filled with nothing but identical yellow raincoats.
* LogicalWeakness:
** As she's made entirely of some liquid-like substance, she becomes "diluted" when submerged in a bathtub-sized body of water, and takes time to reform and drag herself out of it. If she falls into a ''huge'' enough body of water (e.g. a river) or gets caught in a heavy storm, however, the dilution effect would be serious enough to ''kill'' her.
** On the opposite side of the coin, dehydrating her shrinks her and makes her lose her humanoid form and revert to a compact blob, but doing so is akin to ''starving'' her. Most of the hijinks revolving around her involve her attacking anyone with even a trace of moisture on them.
** Off another tangent, she is also susceptible to freezing temperatures due to her liquid body.
* LovableSexManiac: While it's not specifically sex that she's after, the other girls consider her to be one and tell Rachnera to get used to being violated by her.
* MarryThemAll: She openly supports this option. However, if Kimihito only chose one she believes she is the most worthy (though it's not clear how much she understands what being married means).
* MorphicResonance: Regardless of whether she's in blob, child, or adult form, or mimicking another person or object, she always has her antenna, though she can at least conceal it when forming a perfect imitation of someone else.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands:
** Suu has done this a lot throughout the series, helped by the fact that she's a non-mythological monster without defined powers, and by the fact that hers is a new species about which little is known.
** In chapter 30 we get her newest revealed ability, being able to control her body's digestive ability to the extent that she can remove the skins of vegetables and fruits and spit them out intact, making her very helpful for cooking.
* ObfuscatingStupidity:
** While no one is sure how long she's been able to, she accidentally reveals that she can speak in more than just mimicked phrases. As soon as she's called out on it, she goes back to mimicking.
** She's also the one to [[spoiler: put the kibosh on the Director's plans to sell Papi's egg (and more than that, her dignity) by reading his mind and broadcasting his true intentions for all to hear.]]
** Chapter 20 reveals that her intelligence is based upon her size. As a blob able to fit in a bucket she's essentially just running on instinct, in her base form her intelligence is that of a child, and in kaiju form she's able to make scientific deductions based on her surroundings. Though in Chapter 25 her "child" form is still able to hold a conversation once out of sight of everyone but Kimihito, and makes rude insults when taste-testing possibly-poisonous plants has given her a "venomous" tongue.
* PersonalityPowers: As a SlimeGirl, anything she consumes will be shown through her attitude and form. She really makes the phrase "you are what you eat" literal in a sense.
** Chapter 20: Suu falling down into a radioactive fertilizer from the dump site supercharges her size in proportion to Franchise/{{Godzilla}}.
** Chapter 25: shows her speech pattern filled with toxic TrashTalk after ingesting poisonous mushrooms in the forest.
** Chapter 31: has her ingesting mineral water, which gives her a professional secretary demeanor.
** Chapter 36: [[spoiler:After absorbing nutrients from the Sea she becomes, essentially, a MILF in appearance and personality.]]
* OneWingedAngel: In the anime's adaptation of Chapter 20, when Suu makes her kaiju-sized debut she turns her hair tentacles [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} into a tail and jagged dorsal fins]], and even spits a beam of energy.
* TheQuietOne: She doesn't talk much, though that's because she's still learning how to talk. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Or is she? No one can really be sure anymore.]] She is fully capable of speech as of Chapter 20, though.
* RunningGag:
** Her small blob form being put inside of a bucket.
** She also seems to randomly attack Rachnee at least once a day even if she hasn't been splashed or gotten wet. Rachnee's continued use of bondage on the other girls likewise seems to be her way of trying to find new ways to resist these attacks. Given that Suu typically emits a heart emote or two when she dives Rachnee, she might just see it as an on-going game.
* SexierAlterEgo: She can absorb water to make herself taller, bouncier, and curvier than usual, complete with major BreastExpansion. It also ([[AmbiguousInnocence possibly]]) gives her an intelligence upgrade.
* SlimeGirl: A shining, or rather slimy, example.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: When she gets an intelligence boost after soaking in mineral-enriched water, she suddenly alters her face to look like she's wearing glasses.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The cover art for Chapter 10 spells her name as "Sue".
* {{Telepathy}}: In addition to knowing the emotions of people she's touching, she can see their memories as well.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Once she starts talking normally, she refers to herself in third person.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Rachnee wanted to play "games" with Suu and Papi while the others were at the health club, but apparently the end result is Rachnee exhausted and Suu and Papi happily swinging around in arachne webs.
* VoiceChangeling: She can mimic a person's voice precisely depending on the persona she takes on.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Suu manages to be an even better shapeshifter than Doppel ''and'' Ninetei. While Doppel can change her clothes but is limited to transforming into humanoids, and Ninetei can transform into anything but can't change her clothes, Suu can do all of that and more. She can shapeshift herself around other people to become their clothes, or even transform into functioning arms and legs.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green. Well, the slime that makes up her hair anyway.
* YourSizeMayVary: Her raincoat's length seems to adjust along with her size when compared to her boots. While in her more childlike form, it looks like a BadassLongcoat. While in her adult form it's barely any larger than a shirt, despite the boots still only going up about halfway to the knees.

[[folder:Meroune Lorelei]]

[[caption-width-right:354:Mero makes a splash]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/HarukaYamazaki

A mermaid and the fourth girl to ''officially'' move in with Kimihito (Ms. Smith has, unsurprisingly, considered Suu to not be her problem). Wheelchair-bound for obvious reasons when out of the water, she first meets Kimihito when she loses control of it and he saves her. After she helps him find the other girls, it's revealed the waterproof room being built in Kimihito's house wasn't for Suu at all; instead it was so Ms. Smith could dump her off on him.
* {{Adorkable}}: Not quite to the degree of Centorea, but Meroune has her share of awkward moments, mostly her being InnocentlyInsensitive. Examples include when she interrupts what would have been Kimihito and Miia's first kiss with fish trivia, or when she cheerfully tries to compliment Miia by saying she "swam like an eel."
* BareYourMidriff: When not wearing her maid outfit, she spends most of her time around the house in a bikini top, probably so she can slip easily in and out of the pool in her room whenever she wants.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: After seeing Kimihito and Miia's lovely date together in Chapter 19, Mero discovers the feelings of jealousy and loss--and they're not what she expected, even though she wanted it to happen.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Normally Mero is the very image of polite and gentle, [[http://i.imgur.com/UKv23bA.png?1 but she crowned Papi]] with a ''wicked'' tail slap in an unconscious effort to protect The Couch That Turns People Into Mush from the harpy's talons.
* BiTheWay: In the official English version, she states that she's okay being the mistress to Miia's wife, as long as Miia overlooks the affair ...or permits the occasional ''menage a trois''. And she proceeds to grope Miia to emphasize this.
* CharacterDevelopment: When first introduced, Mero has an unhealthy fixation on "tragic romance". Over the course of the series, she has endured the possibility of all her fantasies becoming a reality and realized that while they make for nice fantasies, she would be heartbroken if they actually happened. By chapter 37, she has mostly realized that what she really wants is to marry Kimihito and have a normal, happy life (though the idea of Kimihito having a mistress, namely Miia, still sounds good to her).
* CharacterTics: Clasping her webbed hands together. Suu also does it when imitating her.
* CharmPerson: Further hinting at royal origins, she possesses a compelling regal aura capable of making people genuflect when speaking. She also uses it to inspire people feeling down about themselves.
* CovertPervert: Doesn't really mind getting tied up by Rachnera since it feels good to her.
* CrashIntoHello: Kimihito plucks her from her runaway wheelchair and ends up smashed between her and a pole during their first encounter.
* DontCallMeSir: Once [[spoiler:she's revealed to be a princess]], she becomes very uncomfortable about Kimihito's and the other girls' (mainly Centorea's) change of attitude towards her and asks them to not treat her any different [[spoiler:only because they now know she's royalty]].
* DramaQueen: A bit, usually whenever she gets starry-eyed over the prospect of tragedy.
* ElegantGothicLolita: This is how she dresses, although it's noticeably more {{Stripperiffic}} than the norm.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Centorea and other people she meets certainly get a "royalty" vibe from her, and she ''does'' seem to know an awful lot about knights and nobles. [[spoiler: Confirmed in Chapter 34.]]
* ExactWords: Done during a conversation with Miia; at first it comes off as her exposing herself as a {{Yandere}}, but in retrospect is in fact her admitting she only wants second place.
--> '''Miia''': Well, anyway!! I'm going to make sure you don't get your hands on my Darling! Got it?!\\
'''Meroune''': Oh, don't worry. [[DullEyesofUnhappiness The feeling...... is mutual.]]
* ExpressiveEars: They drooped when she took a bite of Miia's cooking.
* GracefulInTheirElement: Requires a wheelchair to move around on land, but put her in the water and she outstrips the greatest human swimmer. The gym chapter stresses this by letting her show off some impressive flips and turns.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Keeps a large, heavy-looking conch shell ...somewhere that she whips out to smack people sometimes: Kimihito, Sebastian and Potemkin have all been on the receiving end at some point.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Almost]] ends up making one in chapter 37, in order to save Kimihito from drowning. She gives him CPR underwater using the air from her swim bladder, in the process giving up her ability to control her bouyancy. Her tail was heavily damaged from rubble, preventing her from swimming effectively, and she was almost sucked by a current into a grid of spikes. Fortunately, Kimihito managed to use leftover strings from Rachnera to pull her up along with himself being pulled by Miia.]]
* IgnoredEpiphany: At first it seems like the events of chapter 37 have finally snapped Mero out of her "tragic romance" fantasy when she realises how losing in love would actually feel... But no, she just wants to flip the script now, with Miia being the runner up in the tragedy instead, much to the latter's indignation.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Sometimes. She's sincere in her compliments, it's just her choice of words are usually... poor.
-->'''Meroune''': There, there, Miia-sama was amazing as well. You swam just like an eel! ''([[LampshadeHanging Totally innocent.]])''
* {{Keigo}}: Always speaks very politely, which was part of Cerea's suspicion toward her background.
* LargeHam: Not always, but when she lapses into "tragic heroine" mode she can rival Cerea.
* LimitedWardrobe: She's typically seen either in a Gothic Lolita maid-style outfit or a bikini. A look inside her wardrobe in chapter 26 reveals she has a number of clothes, but they're all Gothic Lolita (and according to chapter 23, only her maid-style outfit is suitable for a funeral).
* LogicalWeakness:
** Given that mermaids breathe water, the purity of the water is important. Swimming in chlorinated water is dangerous to her health; it would be the human equivalent of breathing in bleach fumes.
** Her skin needs to be wet so she can breathe on land, meaning if the air becomes too hot, her skin will dry out, making it hard for her to breathe. On the flipside, if the air is so cold it's freezing, her skin will get frozen, which also makes it hard for her to breathe, if not worse.
* LoveEpiphany: She has one at the end of chapter 19, after Miia and Kimihito's date at the aquarium. This after claiming to only want to experience a tragic love like in ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid''.
** Later, she specifically realises that she doesn't want the tragic ending that ''actually'' occurs in the story, but [[EarnYourHappyEnding the happy ending that the mermaid had wanted]].
* MarshmallowHell: It's what Kimihito gets after saving her from her runaway wheelchair in their first meeting.
* MeaningfulName: Her middle name, Lorelei, refers to a famous siren from German folklore. Her surname, du Neptune, refers to the Roman god of the sea.
* MermaidProblem: Not an issue, if her attempt to copulate with Kimihito in Chapter 24 is any indication, and in hindsight her clothes ''do'' cover the part of her body one would expect.
* ModestRoyalty: In the "dresses like a commoner" sense, not in the "too modest to spend an entire chapter either in a bikini or out of it" sense.
* MomentKiller: She accidentally does this to Miia and Kimihito in Chapter 19.
* {{Netorare}}: A fan of being on the losing end, as per her ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' fetish. [[spoiler:[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Chapter 19]] [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs this]] to let her know that it isn't what she thought it was going to be, ultimately changing her mind entirely in Chapter 37. [[IgnoredEpiphany By which we mean wanting Miia to be the runner up instead.]]]]
* NiceGirl: [[InnocentlyInsensitive Insensitive moments]] aside, she is unfailingly kind and polite to everyone she meets.
* NightmareFetishist: She just loves to be a victim of tragedy in general, whether it's unrequited love, her lover dying, or herself dying and leaving her lover behind. [[LampshadeHanging Miia even calls her a "tragedy freak."]] [[spoiler:However, she doesn't enjoy actually experiencing it in chapter 19, and in Chapter 24 shifts her priorities to having Kimihito's children so that she can [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy raise them without him]].]]
** She eventually becomes a Deconstruction. Every time one of her fantasies seems like it might come true, she very abruptly realizes how emotionally painful it is and that she doesn't actually want it.
* {{Ojou}}: In the "hot springs dating" incident, she mentions being independently wealthy and able to financially support her partner. [[spoiler:It's later revealed she's not only rich, she's a princess.]]
* OjouRinglets: Has straight hair that curls into ringlets, which befits her ElegantGothicLolita attire and princess-y behavior. [[spoiler:And she really is a princess.]]
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Apparently they have webbed hands, fin-like ears, gills along their rib cages, and a pronounced set of pelvic fins. Also they can survive on land so long as there is a decent amount of humidity, and give off a mucus-like secretion to retain moisture. And that's just Mero: chapter 35 shows that merfolk come in all shapes and sizes, some of them being straight-up ''weird''. One female merperson has a human body and a fish for a head. An ''entire'' fish.
* OverlyLongName: Chapter 35 reveals her full name is Meroune Lorelei du Neptune.
* PerkyGoth: Dresses in the ElegantGothicLolita style and is a bit of a NightmareFetishist, but has a very warm personality overall.
* PrincessClassic: Besides her bizarre wish for tragedy, she's a polite and graceful beautiful lady with a "royal aura". [[spoiler:She's later confirmed to be a real princess.]]
* PrincessesPreferPink: She has long pink hair and a pink tail, contributing to her princess-y looks [[spoiler:and serving as hints that she really is a princess]].
* RapunzelHair: It goes past her waist.
* ReallyRoyaltyReveal: She's been long thought to have a "royal aura", and it turns out [[spoiler:she really is royalty. And a princess no less!]]
* RoseHairedSweetie: Very princess-y and refined, whatever her bizarre interests.
* SheepInSheepsClothing: Her debut chapter establishes her as this: a sweet, polite, refined individual whom Miia is absolutely sure is trying to steal Darling away from her. To the Lamia's credit Mero gives her more than enough reasons to think so, between asking incessantly whether Kimihito has a girlfriend and a rather disturbing {{Yandere}}-esque moment. As it turns out, Mero's every bit the NiceGirl she seems to be, and in fact is a ShipperOnDeck for Miia and Kimihito... [[{{Netorare}} in her own way]].
* ShipperOnDeck: She wants anyone ''but'' herself to be with Kimihito (solely so she can be the mistress), primarily Miia as she was the only one to openly acknowledge being interested in him.
** By chapter 37, she's realized that she actually does want to be with Kimihito - but she's still on board with Miia getting together with him, so that ''Miia'' can be the mistress, the girl he's unable to forget.
* SkinshipGrope: Inflicts this on Miia at the end of her debut chapter while the two are reconciling.
* SomeoneToRememberHimBy: After realizing that {{netorare}} wasn't all it was cracked up to be, and believing that Kimihito was soon going to die, she immediately tried to seduce him in order to have ''this'' sort of tragedy instead.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:She professes to get excited about being separated from Kimihito in chapter 35, but underneath apparently realizes how painful it would be.]]
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: Wants to experience a "tragic love" like in the original Little Mermaid story, including turning into sea foam.
* TooKinkyToTorture: After eating some of Miia's cooking, it brings to mind having her fins painfully split apart into legs. Afterwards, she is seen collapsed on the floor ''smiling'' about it, despite foaming at the mouth. Later, once Rachnera ties her up, she finds herself rather enjoying it.
* UnrequitedTragicMaiden: She wants to be one. She doesn't want to be a third lover though; there's no tragic romance when it comes to third place. However, she changes her mind by chapter 37, deciding that she wants a requited love after all.
* VisualPun: Mer'''''maid'''''. Get it?
* WardrobeMalfunction: Mermaids secrete a slime to keep themselves moist. The result causes this to happen when she wears clothing not designed around avoiding this.
* WaterfallPuke: Afflicted with this when she starts getting chlorine poisoning from the pool.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has pink hair.

[[folder:Rachnera Arachnera]]

[[caption-width-right:350:Rachnee catches her prey]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/SakuraNakamura

An Arachne and the fifth girl to officially move in with Kimihito. Her original host family had sold her off to the director because they were expecting a monster girl who wasn't so...monstrous. This and the director's behavior left her hating humans, until she met Kimihito.

* ActionGirl: Put it this way: Rachnera is to guerrilla fighters or covert operators as Centorea is to knights - she's an ambush predator. She's also particularly good with her webs: Miia jumps at her when she first shows up and tries to put the moves on Kimihito, and is completely restrained in webbing a panel later with Rachnee ignoring her outright. She can even catch by surprise Centorea, the only one with a warrior background.
* AffectionateNickname:
** The household starts calling her "Rachnee" as soon as she moves in. In Japanese it's written "Raku-[[JapaneseSiblingTerminology nee]]", as in "big sister Rach".
** In the official English release, she's known as "Spidey" as well.
** She calls Kimihito "Honey."
* AmbiguouslyBi: Likes to put the girls in bondage as much as she does Kimihito. She also admits, while drunk, that she did this with Ren Kunanzuki when she lived with her. Then there's the time she had her way with Lilith in Chapter 21, or her amicable relationship with [[spoiler: Oct, when they casually discuss how much they enjoyed getting tied up / tentacled.]]
* ArmorPiercingQuestion:
** From Chapter 18, to Miia.
--->'''Rachnera''': [[spoiler: You're making a huge fuss about [Kimihito] cheating on you, but do you really think you can stand to witness it? Can you really handle seeing your beloved Darling making love to another woman?]]
** [[spoiler: For the record, he isn't, but Miia looks scared there]].
* ArtEvolution: Rachnera' pedipalps have over time been drawn to look more like the legs of a human (albeit missing the feet and covered in chitin). This is certainly attractive, but has led some to say it makes her look more like a human with a giant spider stuck to her rear (ignoring the various spider features of her humanoid portion).
* BadDreams: She still has nightmares about the time she hurt Ren.
* BareYourMidriff: Well, when your body makes pants impossible...
* BeneathTheMask: Due to her FreudianExcuse from her host family, she detests {{hypocrite}}s and people putting on a mask of false kindness. She would rather see the person be their honest self than the mask they wear.
* BerserkButton: Do not poke fun at her FreudianExcuse or she will tie you up bondage style.
* BizarreAlienBiology:
** Apparently breathes out of her abdomen, like regular spiders. Miia thinks she can also breathe out her mouth. It's not clear if that's actually true, but the fact her mouth moves when she speaks [[RequiredSecondaryPowers implies]] she can exhale past her vocal cords and lips.
** [[ShownTheirWork Like spiders,]] Rachnee gets [[DrunkOnMilk drunk on]] [[AlienCatnip caffeine]].
** Her webgame profile from the official website reveals that she only weighs 82 kilos (180 pounds), despite her massive size. In Chapter 17, when some of the girls had learned that they were overweight from a combination of overeating Kimihito's cooking and not being able to exercise much without Kimihito's presence, she proudly says that she doesn't need to go to the new Extraspecies gym like they do.
* BrainsAndBondage: Easily the most clever and level-headed of Kimihito's harem (most of the time), and the most careful with her strength. The bondage part is obvious.
* BrokenBird: After her rejection from her first host family and being sold off into slavery, she's very bitter towards the human race and slow to trust anyone.
* BrutalHonesty: Rachnera generally does this as she doesn't like sugar-coating things. Such as when she tells Centorea [[spoiler:her sandwiches are not very good because she just put chopped raw vegetables between two pieces of bread]].
* BullyingADragon: She tends to be the "Dragon" in this case.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: Strange example, in that Rachnera doesn't get drunk on alcohol, she gets drunk on ''caffeine''. That being said, she gets very tipsy after only one cup of black coffee.
* CasualKink: Really enjoys tying people up much like a dominatrix would. And she enjoys testing new methods on the other girls.
* {{Catchphrase}}: The English manga gave her the descriptive phrase "itsy-bitsy", referring to the nursery rhyme "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider".
* ContraltoOfDanger: In the anime, she has the deepest voice of the monster girls seen thus far.
* CuddleBug: Separate from her love of tying others up she tends to get very tactile with Kimihito when she's in a good mood, to a point that rivals even Miia. She especially seems to like caressing him, which is quite impressive given how sharp her claws are and [[TheFettered how she manages to do it without injuring him.]] She makes ample use of her breasts as well. Kimihito can't seem to bring himself to object to this all that much.
* DeadpanSnarker: To the point of mocking the use of [[JapanesePronouns honorifics]] when addressing her.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: An explicit aversion, having realized the potential dangers of her body from her last host family. Bondage aside, she's never actually ''injured'' Kimihito (even while drunk), while the other girls regularly put him on death's door.
* DrunkOnMilk: Spiders get drunk off of caffeine. [[http://www.mangahere.co/manga/monster_musume_no_iru_nichijou/c026/33.html Rachnera is no exception.]]
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: A variation, as Lilith becomes totally hooked on her incredible bondage skills. And Mero enthusiastically serves as a test subject for Rachnee's "training" in an extra chapter.
* ExtraEyes: She has six eyes. It doesn't come off as creepy...usually.
* FangsAreEvil: At first they come off this way, but eventually Rachnera's mood improves and they become CuteLittleFangs. Can snap right back if she puts on her NightmareFace, though.
* FemmeFatalons: Sort of. Her arms are covered in a black carapace from the shoulders down, and the gauntlet-like plating on her digits end in sharpened points.
* TheFettered: Perhaps ironically for a dominatrix, Rachnera is the girl with the most restraint towards Kimihito with regards to her strength and movements. [[GeniusBonus But then, any good Dom knows that they should only go so far, and would never inflict lasting harm on their Sub.]]
* FreakinessShame: Not so much shame as realizing people may be put off by her spider parts. Kimihito admitting that he finds her legs charming is part of what gets her to realize he's not a bad person at all.
* FreudianExcuse: She hates humans and refuses to trust them because her original host family sold her off into slavery.
* TheGadfly: She'll often say things just to rile up the other girls, [[ClingyJealousGirl especially Miia]].
* HiddenDepths: Lilith, after being captured, sneers that the reason Rachnera is a StealthExpert and TheTease is that she's so afraid of suffering prejudice and rejection again that she tries to stay out of the public eye and [[ControlFreak keep friendships going under her own terms]]. While she doesn't directly respond, Rachnera's [[BrainsAndBondage furious response]] implies that Lilith touched a nerve.
** In chapter 30, Kimihito notes that, despite her FreakinessShame, she's the only one who hasn't [[DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength accidentally injured him]] before. That particular accident with Ren Kunanzuki has taught her the importance of being gentle with humans. As for Rachnera's response to Kimihito's remark about her gentleness, it was effectively InstantSeduction.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Her general opinion on them. She tries to prove that Kimihito is no different, and eventually opts to arrange to move in with him when she finds out that he is, in fact, a decent person who doesn't discriminate against non-humans.
--> '''Rachnera:''' (''drunk'') You don't worry about the little things, Honey. No, you don't worry about the big things either. Honey doesn't pay too much mind to anyone... Everyone's equal. Everyone's the same. That's why it's so easy to get along with you.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Heavily implied, if not outright stated by Lilith; Rachnera's cold outer exterior is meant to hide a deeply hurting individual. For as much as Rachnera looks down on people who hide their true nature behind a mask, she herself wears one of tough cynicism.
* HypocriticalHumor: Calls Kimihito a hypocrite for getting turned on by her human parts, believing that like other humans, he finds her spider half disgusting. When he states he finds her legs to be "charming," she laughs at him and calls him a pervert who gets turned on by spider legs (and given that, aside from Lala, none of the monster girls he lives with have normal human legs if they have legs at all...).
* InVinoVeritas: She's apparently [[LooseLips more forthcoming with her feelings]] when sloshed.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: She sides with [[spoiler:Lala while believing she's actually a grim reaper, with the reasoning being if Kimihito has to die they should just [[GetItOverWith let him die peacefully]] rather than subject him to all of the injuries he suffers from the other girls trying to outrun her. [[SubvertedTrope Fortunately he's not really going to die]].]] She's shown to be just as embarrassed and ashamed of it afterward as the rest of the girls.
* LogicalWeakness:
** As stated in the chapter 23 extra, "Arachne are helpless against those they cannot ensnare or tie up.". Promptly demonstrated by Suu. [[RunningGag Again.]]
** Rachnee has very little tolerance to extreme temperatures, hot or cold.
* LovableSexManiac: More than any of the other girls she will try to jump Kimihito whenever she has the opportunity, even if she has an audience (unlike Miia).
* MadeASlave: She was sold off into slavery by her original host family.
* MarshmallowHell: After noticing Kimihito's hard-on she sets up her web in a way that if he opens his mouth he'll fall, strips off her top, and proceeds to inflict this on him as "punishment". She does it for fun at other times as well.
* ModestyBedsheet: Utterly subverted as she doesn't even use a bedsheet, she sleeps on a silk hammock in the glorious nude.
** In fact, the anime shorts have shown that when she's alone in her room she even reads in the nude.
* MonochromaticEyes: Her eyes are [[RedEyesTakeWarning pure red]], lending to her creepy appearance.
* MundaneUtility: An arachne's silk developed to catch prey and assist in climbing, but Rachnera also uses hers to make clothing, dolls, and thread phones, to bundle up things when packing, and (of course) for bondage techniques. Additionally, her claws (developed to dispatch prey items) make excellent letter openers.
* NightmareFace: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rachneraface_1047.png She can don a truly impressive one]]. If the text font is anything to go by, she also puts on a [[HellIsThatNoise voice]] to match.
* ObviouslyEvil:
** Subverted. She has a massive skull design on her spider-like body and dresses like a FemmeFatale, and her first appearance involves more or less mummifying a man and expressing an implied violent interest in Kimihito. She kidnaps him, binds him in webbing, and suspends him from the ceiling ''repeatedly''. She's actually just a rightfully bitter person who's been screwed over by humans repeatedly, looking for one that's actually decent and worth living with.
** Played up by Rachnera when called for. She is aware of how dangerous she looks and has no qualms about using this to her advantage. It comes in especially handy with the "humans are forbidden from harming extra-species, and vice-versa" law that's in effect; scaring away a would-be attacker isn't ''technically'' harming him, after all...
* OffscreenTeleportation: Seems to move very, very fast when not in a frame. For instance suddenly appearing on the ceiling when she was on the floor a moment ago. Justified by the fact that fleeing spiders are pretty quick.
* OnlySaneWoman: Bondage aside, she is more level-headed (and less prone to flights of fancy) than Centorea, and never joins in squabbles over Kimihito.
* PayEvilUntoEvil:
** When she finds out that there ''might'' be a decent human, Kimihito, she turns on the director, encasing him in webbing and leaving him for the police to find, and proceeds to use that time to abduct and investigate Kimihito.
** This was also used against the [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses]] in Chapter 16 [[spoiler:that [[AttemptedRape attempted to rape]] Centorea when they knew she could not fight back.]]
* PeekABangs: Sometimes, but not always. It usually happens when she's being especially standoffish or cynical.
* RazorFloss: One of the ''many'' applications she has for her silk.
* RepetitiveName: '''Rachnera''' A'''rachnera'''.
* SarcasticDevotee: Snarky, sharp-tongued, cynical, and biting in her criticism. Her love for Kimihito is as strong as that of any other member of the harem.
* ScaryTeeth: She has shark-like teeth, though they're only really noticeable when she's pissed off.
* ShesGotLegs: Eight of 'em, according to Kimihito.
** Ten if you count the spider pedipalps that prolong her human thighs.
* SleepCute: While Kimihito doesn't fall asleep himself, it is quite cute how Rachnera falls asleep while giving him a multi-limbed hug.
* SpiderPeople: She's an Arachne.
* SpidersAreScary: Zig-zagged, as seen above. While she's actually not too bad most of the time, she can be downright ''terrifying'' when the situation calls for it.
* SpiderSense: Acute enough to dodge a ''sniper round''.
* StealthExpert: Despite her size, [[SpiderPeople Rachnera]] is quite good at remaining unseen thanks to her {{Wall Crawl}}ing skills and SpiderSense.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Easily the most provocatively-dressed of the girls, barring Suu.
* SuperHumanTrafficking: Her original host family [[MadeASlave sold her off to the director]], who used her and her webbing to make money.
* SuperSpeed: Faster than all of the girls, at least.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: When Oct wants to know [[spoiler: whether she'd set up the trap she catches the scylla in because she'd anticipated the whole situation in advance. She'd actually put it out just to mess with her teammates.]]
* TheTease: Kind of a lot, actually, even by this manga's standards. She pretty much starts putting the moves on Kimihito - albeit in a mocking fashion - even before she moves in. Once she does move in, she spends an entire day trying to get into his pants.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She's not evil per se, but she does enjoy tying up the other girls with or without consent, except Suu, who she's unable to bind at all. And when she first ties up Lala, she's unable to get a response due to the latter missing her head at the time.
* {{Underboobs}}: So much so that the first time Kimihito was on the ground looking up at her, her nipples were totally exposed. Even her more casual articles of clothing leave a generous amount exposed.
* UnreliableNarrator: Her initial recount of her FreudianExcuse seemed to imply a lot more malice on the part of her host family, in that they pawned her off to the director because they were disgusted by her appearance and didn't want to deal with her. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that while the family may have been off-put and intimidated by her, they only put their foot down when Rachnera accidentally gave their daughter a slash across the face with her claws. Furthermore, they were under the impression that the director worked for the exchange program and would transfer her to a new foster home. They (or at least Ren) were [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone appalled]] when they found out [[MadeASlave what happened to Rachnera]] and sent Ren to try and start over.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: In chapter 30, she's the only one to pick up on Kimihito just taking all the girls' abuse for the sake of potential marriage, and criticizes him for putting his life at risk.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Light lavender. Lends well to her "dark" appearance.


[[caption-width-right:339:Lala owns your soul]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/AiKakuma

A Dullahan, the ''second'' "D", and the sixth girl to officially move in with Kimihito. She initially introduced herself as a grim reaper who was there due to Kimihito's impending death, when in fact she merely enjoys pretending to be a grim reaper and really showed up because she was on the run from Ms. Smith and fascinated by [[MadeOfIron Kimihito's apparent invulnerability]].

Because she's introduced very late into the story, and because several significant reveals are linked directly to her, Lala is a WalkingSpoiler. You have been warned.

* ADayInTheLimelight: Lala gets this in Chapter 38, as the plotline focuses on her and a [[spoiler: terminally ill girl in a hospital.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Some of her spiels of self-grandeur are often humorously over the top, and she's unsure of how to interact with young children.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: She has blue skin.
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Used to give her an ominous and mystical aura (it's more obvious in Japanese). Also see SesquipedalianLoquaciousness below. She tends to drop it when showing vulnerability, though, like when cutely begging Kimihito to get her head back to her body after initially ordering him like an inferior being, and when Ms. Smith is intimidating her.
* BadassInDistress: Her head and body being so far separated keeps her from using her powers. This would normally not be much of a problem according to her, but she doesn't have the time as she's being hunted by "[[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Organization]]". It's revealed in Chapter 24 that the so called "Organization" is just Ms. Smith doing her job of making sure that she isn't running off on her host families.
* BaitAndSwitch: Initially implied to be the second "D", she actually arrived to warn Kimihito about his impending death. When questioned about the note, her response is that her only purpose in interacting with mortals is to warn them of their deaths, so it was assumed she did not write the letter. It's then [[DoubleSubversion revealed]] she really '''is''' the ''second "D"''.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: She has black sclera and is sinister and morbid, but like Doppel and Lilith she's not evil.
* BlueSkinnedSpaceBabe: The cover of volume 7 reveals that, among the other odd parts of her appearance her skin is [[https://twitter.com/ikamiki/status/553457564097081344/photo/1 a pale blue color]], which makes a certain amount of sense given her mythical origins. That said, she's also the most physically-human in appearance of all the girls living at Kimihito's house.
* BrokenStreak:
** She may be a part of the 'family', but she's the first of them who doesn't show any clear romantic attraction to Kimihito. She does fancy him quite a bit, of course, but doesn't feel the need to pursue him at all, since [[spoiler:she's fine with the fact that she'll have him forever once he dies]].
** She's the only member of the main cast who doesn't have a nickname for Kimihito, ([[HeyYou though she's yet to address him in any way outside of pronouns]]).
** She's the only girl living with Kimihito to not be shown naked (outside of some imagine spots, but she wasn't actually stripped down).
* TheComicallySerious: The expression on her face never changes even in comical moments, which can make her really funny. Her headless body is actually a lot more expressive.
* DemotedToExtra: After her arc's over, she's pretty much a background character that pops in once in a while. This is justified in story by saying that Lala has so little presence that even her own housemates, except for Kurusu, forget she's even there. However, she does get her own chapter.
* FriendToAllChildren: Has a very soft spot for kids. She just can't mingle with them very well.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: While her head is on her shoulders, they appear normal. Once she's carrying her head in her hands behind Kimihito they appear to be glowing. After being revealed completely, the glow is gone.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Her neck stump looks just as you'd expect from a normal decapitated body, to Miia's horror.
* {{Goth}}: Turns out that this is basically what she is. Her doom and gloom speeches are the same sort of thing you hear from some angry kid discovering black makeup for the first time--her ability to pull her own head off just gives her a bit more dramatic strength. [[spoiler: [[SarcasticConfession Then again...]]]]
* TheGrimReaper: She's a Dullahan and refers to herself as both "Death Incarnate" and "The Huntress of Death": ultimately, it's averted, however. In the end, she's just a Monster Girl no more supernatural than the rest of the girls, and her connection to Death is her just playing pretend. [[spoiler: She's [[HidingInPlainSight pretending to play pretend]] to hide the fact that she actually does have some power over death, though it's pretty much limited to being able to talk with Kimihito when he's on the verge of entering the afterlife.]]
* HeadlessHorseman: She's a Dullahan, this comes with the territory. No word on if she has a horse or [[MyHorseIsAMotorbike bike]] though.
* IdiotHair: In the shape of a scythe that's nearly as large as [[LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan Nyarko's]]. It's notably absent when [[spoiler:she's speaking with Kimihito in the afterlife and being incredibly straightforward about her opinion of Kimihito.]]
* TheImmodestOrgasm: Courtesy of Rachnera and Suu on her body while Kimihito and a few of the girls are looking for her head. Kimihito is ''not'' amused at the fact that, while he's trying to hide from the police, Lala's head suddenly (and ''loudly'') moans in pleasure.
* IWillWaitForYou: In a way, Lala's confession to Kimihito is this. [[spoiler: She states she has no interest in chasing him like the other girls do because she knows that one day he will die. And since she is part of the underworld they can be together then.]]
* LimitedWardrobe: Lala has worn four outfits throughout the series but two of those are her standard outfit without the coat, scarf, and gloves while the other one was a kimono she borrowed as a client of the Arctic Inn.
* LosingYourHead: Although a natural thing for her, most of the time is uncalled and unwanted. During her introduction, she lost her head approaching Kimihito and had to get his assistance in finding it as it went rolling downhill and into a park.
* MsImagination:
** Turns out that all her death talk and being a grim reaper is just delusional banter equivalent to 8th grader syndrome.[[note]]A Japanese slang term for delusions of grandeur, culturally associated with young teenagers.[[/note]]
** [[spoiler:She actually does have ''some'' supernatural abilities though, which means she may not actually be a chuuni, but is making people ''believe'' she is.]]
* MundaneUtility:
** She's frequently seen pulling off her head to peek over the shoulders of the other girls and one time [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall made it so a speech bubble didn't block her head in chapter 26]].
** She sometimes uses her scythe for pretty mundane things. Such as offering it to Centorea as a letter opener.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Her hair is white, which hints at her being a Dullahan.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: The others dismiss her talk of being a psychopomp as delusional banter. [[spoiler:To an extent, it's '''not'''.]]
* OffscreenTeleportation: Lala has a tendency to appear and disappear off-panel. [[spoiler:Chapter 38 reveals she ''can'' actually teleport.]]
** She manages to cross a street and get behind Kimihito in the time it took for a truck to pass by breaking his line of sight on her. She pulls it off again when chasing him and the other girls down. [[spoiler: She had Rachnera's assistance that time.]] [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since in the Irish tales, once a Dullahan is after you, you ''will not'' get away unless you throw gold at them.
** When Yukio accidentally freezes Kimihito in Chapter 31, Lala is shown watching him defrost on the next page - [[spoiler:presumably after meeting him in the afterlife]] - with Papi [[DiscussedTrope asking her how and when she arrived at the hotspring]].
* OutOfFocus: PlayedForLaughs and lampshaded. She "has no presence" and following her arc mostly appears in the background of the house, if at that.
** She isn't even initially taken with the group to the hot springs, as noted in OffscreenTeleportation.
** Likewise she is ignored/missing when the group go to the hotel with Mero.
* {{Psychopomp}}: She claims to be an incarnation of Death. While this is initially dismissed as a childish delusion, [[spoiler:in Chapter 30 its revealed she can and does communicate with Kimihito whenever he has a near-death experience, though she doesn't actually bring him back to life]].
* RapunzelHair: When she has her head in its place, her hair can reach past her waist.
* RedOniBlueOni: An interesting case where the head is blue and the body is red. Her head acts calm with little emotion but the body, ironically, is more expressive when they are separate.
* ReversePsychology: Lala actively employees this tactic to trick people into believing that her status as an actual {{Psychopomp}} is just her being overly dramatic. Needless to say, but this works on absolutely everyone who hasn't regularly appeared at death's literal doorstep like Kimihito.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Used to hold her head in place.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Her longwinded and convoluted formulations make it hard to understand what she wants to say. It's apparently a trait of her species.
* ShownTheirWork: The girls mention a "horse-drawn carriage with a headless rider" and the image showed the horse also missing its head. In certain tellings of Dullahan stories, this is another way they can appear.
** Her SesquipedalianLoquaciousness[=/=]AntiquatedLinguistics are also most likely based on the fact that many old Irish/Celtic myths were ''very'' verbose and prone to PurpleProse
* ShyFingerTwiddling: She does this sometimes, usually when confronted by Ms. Smith.
* SinisterScythe: And she uses it to apparently prepare to decapitate Kimihito, hooking him around the neck as [[CliffHanger the chapter just ends]]. Turns out she did this to get his attention. It has an indent in it, and according to her profile, she doesn't really take care of it, so [[RealityEnsues it lacks an edge]]. Of course, it works just fine as a [[TapOnTheHead blunt instrument]]...
* StealthHiBye: Is very good at this, much to Kimihito's dismay.
* TheStoic: Her face is occasionally covered in sweat drops when she is stressed, but her bored stare never changes. [[TheImmodestOrgasm Except once, when Rachnera plays with her body.]]
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Very cold and blunt, but still a sweet girl who loves Kimihito just as much as the other girls.
* TakeAThirdOption: In chapter 38, she puts herself in a dilemma when she meets [[IllGirl Yuuhi]]. Does she [[spoiler: allow her to die from a terminal illness, or commit what is apparently a taboo for a Dullahan by extending her life? She eventually comes to the decision to [[EmergencyTransformation turn the girl into a zombie]] with one of Zombina's teeth.]]
* TogetherInDeath:
** The letter she sent implied this and was originally thought to just be a case of her chuuni habits.
** [[spoiler:However, she reveals in Chapter 30 she was being literal. In a really odd YourSoulIsMine kind of way. As a Dullahan, once Kimihito dies, he'll be with her in the afterlife...forever. And she's content to wait until then.]]
* TokenWholesome: She is the most wholesome member of the group by far. She shows the least amount of skin, has less fanservice moments than the others, and has had no nude scenes at all. The Lala-centric Chapter 38 notably had no fanservice whatsoever.
* WalkingSpoiler: Beyond entering fairly late into the story, it's impossible to explain why she likes Kimihito without revealing that [[spoiler: she [[SarcasticConfession really IS]] an agent of Death.]]
* WomanInWhite: [[spoiler:In the afterlife]] while talking to Kimihito, she trades in her normal outfit for a simple white dress and white thigh-highs. Upon closer inspection, one can notice she's wearing the white dress normally. She's just not wearing the coat, scarf, and gloves here.
* YourSoulIsMine: [[spoiler:She states that Kimihito's soul will belong to her once he dies.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A with her boots as best seen [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QtkG6t1OaDc/U0Mt88awuOI/AAAAAAAAYeI/9HWlzgId1v0/034.png?imgmax=3000 here]].
