----
!'''Inari Fushimi'''
-> '''Voiced by:''' Naomi Ohzora
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inari_7513.png]]

The main protagonist of the story. A middle school student who can easily befriend others, Inari has always felt a special connection to the temple shrine near her home. When she rescues a fox spirit from slipping into the river, the goddess Uka-no-Mitami-no-Kami grants her a single wish. And when that doesn't [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor work out as planned]], she gains Uka's {{shapeshifting}} ability. Despite her newfound power, Inari wants to [[IJustWantToBeNormal continue living as a normal human being]] and really only wants to keep her power so she can keep seeing Uka. But using her shapeshifting powers can be rather tempting when it comes to winning the affections of her crush, her classmate Kouji Tanbabashi.
----
* ACupAngst: When compared to Sanjou and Sumizome.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She has a crush on Tanbabashi, who she sees confessing to their fellow classmate Akemi Sumizome. [[spoiler:Subverted as he was just asking her to be the manager for the basketball team, and Tanbabashi reciprocate her affections.]]
* AllLovingHero: A lot of her angst comes from legitimately wanting everyone in her life to be happy, which at times requires her to sacrifice her own happiness. [[spoiler:She even gives up her powers, and the ability to talk with Uka and Kon, to save some bullies after her anger caused her divine power to try and kill them.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor[=/=]IJustWantToBeYou: What kicks off the plot is her wish to be Sumizome, Tanbabashi's crush.
* BookDumb: One of the hints that the dream world she enters in Amaterasu's mirror is fake is when she starts acing all her tests.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:When she relinquishes her power back to Uka. Subverted when she re-develops her power on her own.]]
* DoggedNiceGirl: For Tanbabashi.
* GenkiGirl: This girl goes at full throttle at pretty much all the time.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Ultimately, this is what she wants. She only really keeps her powers so she can continue being friends with Uka.
* IdiotHero: Played straight and subverted as she is always thinking about the happiness of her friends, family, and her rivals.
* KidHero
* LoveConfession:
** Confesses her feelings for Tanbabashi in Sumizome's body. She later fixes this by shapeshifting into her again to add "as friends", though she clearly feels bad about it (since Tanbabashi seems to like Sumizome and she doesn't know if Sumizome feels mutually).
** [[spoiler:She later confesses to Tanbabashi in the guise of Minami Moriyama because she unconsciously used her powers to discard the latter's love letter. To make up for it, and to still have the girl's feelings reach Tanbabashi, she confesses in Moriyama's place.]]
* MagneticHero: She loves making friends and does her utmost to become friends even with her love rivals. The manga takes a noticeably darker feel when Inari has to go away for a week.

* PowerAtAPrice: Frequent use her abilities puts a strain on Uka.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship:
** With Uka, to the point that her relationship with Uka is constantly tested against her relationship with Tanbabashi.

* TheRival: [[spoiler:Subverted]] with Sumizome and played straight with Momoyama.
* {{Shapeshifting}}: Can shapeshift into any human so long as she has a vague image of them. [[spoiler:And when she tries, she can also shapeshift into Uka.]]
* ShipperOnDeck:
** She quickly becomes one for [[spoiler: Touka and Uka]] once she realizes they have feelings for each other.
** She fully supports Sumizome's becoming friends with Sanjou [[spoiler:long before she finds out Sumizome is in love with Sanjou.]]
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She loves Tanbabashi because he's hardworking, always putting in his utmost effort, and is devoted to his family.
* SmittenTeenageGirl
* [[spoiler:TwiceShy: With Tanbabashi.]]
* UnwantedHarem: Thanks to harboring a portion of Uka's power, rejected gods who want to marry Uka turn to her as the next best thing.

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uka_2679.png]]

The fox goddess who resides in the temple that Inari regularly visits, Uka sets off the story by granting Inari's wish to become Sumizome and then bestowing her shapeshifting ability to allow Inari to return to her original form.

* HairDecorations
* {{Hikikomori}}: Rarely leaves the temple, refuses to return to the Heavens, and would rather spend her time playing video games.

* LettingHerHairDown: She pulls this style after [[spoiler:she gives Touka one of her hair ribbons as a token until she returns.]]

* MayflyDecemberRomance: Between Touka and her. They first met when Touka was younger than Inari is now.
* NiceGirl: She is benevolent and often goes out of her way to help Inari or to do things for her sake.
* ObliviousToLove: Has yet to realize that all of Touka's visits to the temple ([[spoiler:post-Inari giving up her powers]]) and his recent attempts to converse with her are his way of wanting to express his feelings for her and/or figuring out of she feels mutually. She just thinks he visits to pray to the gods to get better grades. [[spoiler:She ends up finding out about Touka's feelings in Chapter 40 after he impulsively confesses to her.]]
* {{Otaku}}
* PinocchioSyndrome: She is envious of humans and would like to become human herself.

Inari's older brother, Touka has spiritual power and is able to see the gods, but this ability has made him fear gods since he had been a child.

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sumizome-2_1772.png]]

The {{school idol}} and Inari's classmate, Akemi Sumizome is often the object of affection for many boys in Inari's school--Tanbabashi included. Though she is Inari's [[TheRival love rival]], Inari quickly warms up to Sumizome and befriends her. She develops feelings for [[spoiler:Keiko Sanjou.]]
----

It's only when the interest becomes extremely blatant that even she has to notice it that she proceeds to shy away from the unwanted attention.

Uka's older brother, Toshi disguses himself as a [[NewTransferStudent transfer student]] to investigate Inari, or "the human who stole [his] little sister's powers".

* AmusingInjuries
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In Chapter 36, he starts off confronting Touka over the latter's relationship Uka with Uka's status as a goddess and the possibility of Uka getting punished by Amaterasu if their mother discovered Uka's participation in human affairs (e.g. Valentine's Day), ending it with, [[BrickJoke "Waah! You lied about helping mediate our relationship! You meanie!"]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Inverted.
* BerserkButton: Touka or any male gods trying to marry Uka will instantaneously provoke him.
* BigBrotherInstinct: A factor in his protectiveness over Uka, and his subsequent hostility towards Touka (and Touka's growing relationship with Uka), in recent chapters is due to realizing Uka's desire is to become a human herself. Thus, he views Touka as a hindrance to both his own relationship with Uka and her duties as a goddess.

* GenreSavvy: Enough to believe he's vastly important when he comes to Inari's middle school, disguised as a NewTransferStudent, and reveals that he knows that she has the power to shapeshift. Inari takes one good look at him... [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and proceeds to run in the opposite direction]], frustrating him.
* TheGlomp: Does this to Uka when he's finally able to touch her. She responds in kind... by tying him to a lamp post and leaving him there indefinitely.
* GreenEyedMonster: Towards Touka's closenes to Uka.
* HopelessSuitor
* InvisibleToNormals
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He may be a pervert with an unwanted habit of stalking, but he does try to protect Inari from other gods.
* ManChild
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Type 6. He doesn't want Touka or any marriage suitors near his sister because as far as he's concerned, she's ''his''.
* NewTransferStudent: His human alter-ego.
* {{Shapeshifting}}: He reveals the importance of his debut by transforming into Inari.
* StalkerWithACrush: For Uka especially and any beautiful woman that crosses his path.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
