->Voiced by: Creator/KanaHanazawa (JP), Creator/MaxeyWhitehead (EN)

An 18-year-old illustrator who has been obsessed with jellyfish since she was a child. She is the youngest resident.
-----
* BettyAndVeronica: The Archie for Kuranosuke's Veronica and Shu's Betty and the Betty to Inari's Veronica for Shu's Archie.
* BlindWithoutEm: Without her glasses she can barely see a few feet in front of her, and everything past that gets blurry.
%%* BrainyBrunette

* CantHoldHerLiquor: Passes out after a single glass of "sweet sake," which has little to no alcohol.
* ClarkKenting: Towards Shu, who doesn't realize she's the same person, in combination with BeautifulAllAlong.

* DitzyGenius: She's a walking jellyfish encyclopedia; not so much with other stuff.
%%* FragileFlower: But she's growing out of this.
* GirlishPigtails
* HeroicBSOD: Happens to her on a regular basis, with its triggers including, but not limited to: finding out that Kuranosuke is a boy, hearing him tell her that he wanted to see her again, being hugged by Shu in the aquarium, and having Kuranosuke walk in on her when she pretends to dress up in a lacy jellyfish dress.
* KimonoFanservice: Her attempts to get out of one go embarrassingly wrong.
* LetsGetDangerous: She manages to push her social phobias aside long enough to demand that a single jellyfish be moved to a safer tank. Don't get in her way when she's making a jellyfish dress, either.
* MeaningfulName: The kanji for Tsukimi (月海) reversed can be read as "kurage" (海月), or "jellyfish".
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* MessyHair: Her hair looks like this most of the time.

* NotGoodWithPeople: She tends to prefer the company of jellyfish.

%%* TenderTears
%%* [[UnluckyEverydude Unlucky Everygirl]]

* YouthfulFreckles: Though she is 18 years old, she's probably the youngest of the entire main cast.

[[WMG: Chieko]]
->Voiced by: Kimiko Saito (JP), Cynthia Cranz (EN)
[[quoteright:129:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_chieko_2994.jpg]]

The daughter of the owner of the Nunnery. She is obsessed with traditional Japanese dolls and kimono.
-----
* BerserkButton: Do NOT threaten to sell her dolls, or mess with the settings on her sewing machine. Even if, in both cases, it's part of a plot by Kuranosuke to keep the Nuns from getting evicted.
%%* BrownEyes
%%* FatGirl
* KimonoIsTraditional: She comments at length on how much easier kimono is to sew compared to Western clothing, since it only uses straight lines in sewing and is not form-fitting.
%%* {{Landlady}}
%%* LonelyDollGirl
%%* NerdGlasses
* OnlySaneWoman: Of the Nuns, she seems to have the most real-world sense.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Averted, and the only member of the group to do so.
** It's explained that she doesn't ''need'' to, as the other members of the group looking fancier in turn makes her look fancier.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: She has an uncanny resemblance to her mother, Chiyoko. Kuranosuke and Tsukimi even mistake them for twins.
%%* TeamMom

[[WMG: Mayaya]]
->Voiced by: AkemiOkamura (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)
[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_mayaya_2452.jpg]]

Mayaya's obsession is RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms.
-----
%%* [[BigGuyLittleGuy Big Girl, Little Girl]]: With Banba.
* BlindingBangs: It turns out that she has her bangs like this on purpose, [[spoiler:since they hide her sinister-looking eyes]].
%%* BoisterousBruiser
%%* [[spoiler:EvilEyebrows]]: [[spoiler:Totally [[FaceOfAThug non-indicative]], though.]]
* CharacterTics: Spasmodic karate-ing, as well as exclaiming [[VerbalTic "Nuwoo!"]] when excited.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Her response to a {{Moe}} version of RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms: "DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS!!"
* GenkiGirl: Mayaya is very enthusiastic whenever she speaks.
* [[spoiler:GoodEyesEvilEyes]]: [[spoiler:Her having narrow, sinister-looking eyes was -- [[HugeSchoolgirl among other things]] -- why she was called 'Contract Killer' in school. Until she started combing her hair in front of them, [[ChildrenAreCruel which was when she was nicknamed 'Bamboo Broom']].]]
* HotBlooded: Complete with NoIndoorVoice and very over-the-top dialogue.
%%* HugeSchoolgirl
%%* KickChick
* LargeHam: Reacts to the smallest crises in the Nuns' house with loud cries of "EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!"
%%* SheCleansUpNicely
* StatuesqueStunner: In "After" mode. So much that she gets to be a model in the manga, and even Hanamori, who's usually more obsessed with cars than girls, offers her his services at a first glance.
%%* ThoseTwoGirls: With Banba.
%%* TomboyishPonytail
%%* WomanChild

[[WMG: Banba]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MotokoKumai (JP), Mariela Ortiz (EN)
[[quoteright:105:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_banba_9393.jpg]]

* CompressedHair: In "After" mode. "Afro . . . SEALED!"
%%* EmotionlessGirl
* FelonyMisdemeanor: "Don't put shiratake noodles next to the meat! Unless you want it to be hard as a ''rock''!"
* FunnyAfro: Kuranosuke eventually gives up on trying to style it and hides its massive weight under a short blonde wig. However, it's surprisingly popular with the Stylish (they ask to touch it) and it's what ultimately inspires a model in Yokohama to accept the girls' jellyfish dresses at a fashion show.
* LadyLooksLikeADude: Much of her face is covered, so it's difficult to tell what her gender is.
* LeapDay: Her birthday is February 29th.
%%* LittleMissSnarker: Subverted due to her age, but she certainly looks the part.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She claims to be 8 since she was born on a leap year. She is also the smallest in the group.
%%* OreOnna
* RailEnthusiast: She has an extensive set of model trains, has subway posters on her wall and draws trains in doodles even when irrelevant to the subject at hand.
--> ''(when going with Mayaya to Yokohama)'' The Minatomirai Line will be MINE!
%%* StatOVision: Her "Meat Scope".
%%* ThoseTwoGirls: With Mayaya.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: She ''really'' likes meat, to the point that she calls Kuranosuke "Meat" and pesters him for meat whenever she sees him.

->Voiced by: MamikoNoto (JP), LeahClark (EN)
[[quoteright:89:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_jijisama_7334.jpg]]

Jiji is one of the Amars who is obsessed with mature, old men.
-----
%%* BlindingBangs
%%* TheChick: She starts out as this, but becomes more of [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]] later on by [[KickedUpstairs taking on the role]] of Product Manager.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When the neighbors of the Nuns' house are evicted, instead of worrying how soon the same fate may come to them, she bemoans the fact that she no longer has an attractive old man, who had been "maturing so beautifully" in her neighborhood.
%%* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
%%* OpaqueLenses: Her glasses.
%%* PeekABangs
* PrecociousCrush: Toward Kuranosuke's dad. And any other man much older than her.
%%* TheQuietOne
%%* SheCleansUpNicely
%%* ShrinkingViolet

[[WMG: Juon Mejiro]]

The rarely seen mangaka of {{Yaoi}} who advises and regulates the other residents.
-----
* DisproportionateRetribution: When Tsukimi writes her a letter asking what the punishment would be for bringing a man into the house, she covers up Tsukimi's message with a single, giant message: "DEATH."
%%* {{Hikikomori}}
%%* [[{{HeWhoMustNotBeSeen}} She Who Must Not Be Seen]]
* TheGhost: Never once comes out of her room during the entire anime series, communicating only in writing through the crack below her door.
* ReclusiveArtist: An InUniverse example. Perhaps it is this reclusiveness that allows her to, having not argued about it at length, [[spoiler: design the final logo for the jellyfish dresses.]]
* YaoiFangirl: She draws BoysLove manga for a living, so naturally she'd be this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Koibuchi Family]]

[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_kuranosuke_5572.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MitsukiSaiga (JP), Creator/JoshGrelle (EN)

A college student who enjoys cross-dressing. He fears being pushed into politics by his family, as he considers his true calling to be the fashion world.

* AlliterativeName: Kuranosuke Koibuchi
%%* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To his older brother Shu.
* AttractiveBentGender: Other women comments on how attractive Kuranosuke is, not realizing that he's a man.
%%* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Shu's Betty for Tsukimi's Archie.
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* BlackSheep: He's the only person in his family who has no desire to go into politics. Instead, he wants a career in fashion.

* {{Determinator}}: He's not one to give up, even when everyone else is.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Enough that, when [[spoiler:the Nunz discover his breasts are fake]], they instead jump to the conclusion that he's a very flat-chested girl wearing inserts out of insecurity.
%%* EvenTheGuysWantHim
* {{Expy}}: a flamboyant blonde kid who is the illegitimate son of an extremely rich and powerful individual in Japan and was ripped away from his European mother at a young age. He marvels the poor and nerdy main character with his sense of money, benevolently manipulates her for his own purposes, and eventually falls in love with her. [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Why does this sound familiar?]]
* FakeBoobs: When Kuranosuke passes out in the lobby of their apartment building, Mayaya attempts to help by applying Vicks Vapo-Rub to "her" chest, and in the process discovers that Kuranosuke's breasts are fake. Mayaya and the other members of the Sisterhood present completely miss the obvious and instead accuse Kuranosuke of padding "her" bra to hide her ACupAngst.
* TheFashionista: He is always seen wearing stylish clothing.
%%* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish one.
* GenderVocabularySlip: Slips into the ''ore'' pronoun, but since he's so good at cross-dressing, he still passes as a {{bokukko}} (with a bit of help from Tsukimi).
%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
%%* [[spoiler:HeroicBastard]]
* HiddenDepths: One of the reasons Kuranosuke cross-dresses, revealed late in the series, [[spoiler: is a desire to connect with his absent mother, who often gave him pretty things and showed off her dresses to him; not to mention a half-subconscious belief that, if he had been born a girl instead of a potential heir, his mother might not have left/been separated from him. The series leaves the exact nature of her departure unexplained.]]
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Has an unfortunate habit of touching off the Nuns' {{Berserk Button}}s, such as asking if they're virgins or employed.
%%* LadykillerInLove: Towards Tsukimi, though he's in denial and she's rather clueless.
* LarynxDissonance: Voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, albeit one famed for being able to sound entirely male. Averted in the dub for the most part, though [[AlexisTipton played straight]] when he's younger.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Son]]: He dresses like his mother in order to feel
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Kuranosuke may be a fashion obsessed cross-dresser, but he makes clear that he's popular among the ladies and has had a lot of girlfriends in the past. Also, not being a virgin [[NatureAbhorsAVirgin is one of the things which separate him from the "freaks" of the society like Amars]].
%%* [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie Dream Boy]]
* MatchmakerCrush: Kuranosuke does his best to get Shu and Tsukimi together, only to realize a bit too late that ''he's'' falling for Tsukimi.

* SixthRanger: As an honorary member of the [[FiveManBand Amars]].
%%* SoBeautifulItsACurse: Kuranosuke's {{Bishonen}}ness rivals [[TheWallflower Kyohei]] (by coincidence, they also have the same English voice actor).
%%* SpoiledSweet
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Gender aside, he looks like his mother.
* StupidSexyFlanders: A lot of male fans state-side have really taken a shine to Kuranosuke's "Kurako" persona as of late. Not to mention the fact that both the Koibuchi family's house staff and Prime Minister/Uncle Negeishi's aides have noted that he is quite the looker, and very attractive. Even Inari's assistant/co-worker agrees, much to her vehement chagrin.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: He has a large variety of different outfits.
%%* UpperClassWit
* WholesomeCrossdresser: He enjoys cross-dressing and is pretty good at it.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Or pink wigs. Or purple, or whatever he decides to wear.

->Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe (JP), Creator/IanSinclair (EN)

%%* TheChewToy
%%* TheComicallySerious
%%* TheDutifulSon
%%* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible one.
%%* LikeFatherLikeSon

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. He's the closest thing this cast has to a responsible, stable, well-functioning in the society adult man and he's revealed to be a virgin at the age of 30.
%%* {{Nosebleed}}
%%* NotSoStoic
%%* OnlySaneMan: In his household.
* [[spoiler:PrimalScene: G-rated version. His phobia of women comes from catching his father cheating with Kuranosuke's mother at a young age.]]

%%* SiblingYinYang: With Kuranosuke.
%%* StoicSpectacles
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: Shu proved that if you push him too far, he will retaliate. Though, admittedly, the victim completely deserved it. He later apologizes, which throws Inari and ruins her blackmail scheme speech.]]

-----
%%* AlliterativeName
%%* CovertPervert[=/=]DirtyOldMan: In the manga.
%%* FollowInMyFootsteps
%%* GentlemanSnarker
* HeirClubForMen: The reason why he took Kuranosuke from his mom is because he was born a boy. [[spoiler:In the chapter 63 it's revealed that Lina ''did'' plan to raise Kuranosuke on her own but realized that she's too young and that task's too big for her, and thus she gave up her son to his father. Kuranosuke still thinks that the reason was that he's a boy.]]

%%* SilverFox: Well, according to Jiji, anyway.
%%* TheStoic

The Prime Minister of Japan and Kuranosuke's uncle.

-----
%%* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Non-evil version, PlayedForLaughs.

%%* CampStraight
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His reactions to certain things are... ''strange.''
%%* CoolOldGuy

%%** ''Kura-pyon!! <3''

%%* ChildhoodFriends: With Shū.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Aside from being a Benz enthusiast and his [[TooMuchInformation uncomfortable]] [[TheDitz lack of consideration]] [[ComedicSociopathy to social situations]], Hanamori thinks that he should follow [[spoiler: Banba]]'s orders over Shū's because [[spoiler: he [[InsaneTrollLogic naturally]] can't defy orders from people with afros.]]
%%* ComedicSociopathy: He has absolutely no morals when you use the Benz argument for manipulation.
%%* TheComicallySerious
%%* TheDriver
* SelfInducedAllergicReaction: Breaks out in hives from eating manila clams, which he knew would happen anyway when he attempted to save Shu from Inari's advances.
%%* SharpDressedMan
%%* TerribleArtist: Unless you ask him to draw a Benz.
* TooMuchInformation: When Hanamori is surrounded by the "24 Ophelias" he blurts out that he's so obsessed with cars that his girlfriend left him because he loves cars more than her. Later, he lets it slip that if he's bribed with cars he'll reveal anything to anyone and at the fashion show goes into great detail that Kuranosuke is just a cross-dresser, not transsexual.
* WatchThePaintJob: He really pampers those Benzes. Lucky for him, none of them have been wrecked... yet.
** He's mentioned that he broke up with his own girlfriend because he preferred to spend more time with his Benzes than her.
