Characters from ''Manga/SensualPhrase''.

!!Aine Yukimura / [[spoiler: Ookuchi]]
->Voiced by: Creator/AtsukoEnomoto (TV series), Creator/HoukoKuwashima (Drama CD)
* BreakTheCutie: The world and the universe seem to conspire to break the poor girl's mind and heart.
* CovertPervert: Judging by her steamy song lyrics.
* CuteBookworm - TeenGenius: Gifted songwriter at age 17, though she's mostly average in the rest.
* DemotedToExtra: In the anime. She appeared only in the second season!
* EarnYourHappyEnding: In the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, [[spoiler: she is HappilyMarried to a somewhat more mellow and mature Sakuya and has become a mom to their son Shion.]]
* NaiveEverygirl
* RapeAsDrama: [[spoiler: In the manga, she's raped by a high-ranked executive who had a beef against Sakuya. Poor girl nearly ''splinters'' mentally after that.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: More in the manga than the anime, though.

!!Sakuya Ookuchi
->Voiced by: Creator/MasayaMatsukaze (TV series), Creator/TakehitoKoyasu (Drama CD)

* BareYourMidriff: Everyone goes through it, but Sakuya gets more points since he actually wears this from the beginning.
* BastardBoyfriend: Moreso in the manga, but in the anime he has his moments too. He's a Type 2: "TroubledButCute dude with a DarkAndTroubledPast and an even worse current attitude"
* BrokenAce: He excels at anything he puts his mind into, whether it's music, acting, business, sports or modelling. At the same time, he is ''seriously'' screwed up.
* BerserkButton: Don't do anything that hurts Aine, he will find you and do everything in his power to make you pay.
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-American. The only traits that reveal his American ancestry are his blue eyes and large frame.
* ChildByRape: [[spoiler: Ralph's father raped Sakuya's mother, then Sakuya was born from it.]]
* CompensatedDating: Did that ever since he was in his late teens. The manga takes it further, making him a straightforward [[HighClassCallGirl High Class Call Boy]]. [[spoiler: This is how he met Ayako Sakura, actually.]]
* EnforcedMethodActing: During the filming of the movie starring him and Ayako Sakura, Sakuya is injured while protecting Aine from falling props in an accident caused by Ayako Sakura's secretary (under Ayako's orders). His injury is then written (by his urging) into the scene where he shows up drunk at Ayako's character's home, with the film crew agreeing that the scene is better than how it was originally written.
* [[spoiler: FinancialAbuse: Was adopted and raised by Reiko's manager after her death, but mostly because said manager saw that Sakuya had inherited his mother's musical talents and wanted to use the kid to WorkOffTheDebt that Reiko left before dying.]]
* JailBait: A rare male example. Had sex with Ayako Sakura for the first time when she was 20 and he was ''12'', which would make her a sex offender. In her defense, she genuinely thought that he was much older than he really was at the time.
* %%JerkAss
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his attitude, you have to admit that he can, and become one, showing how caring and loving he can be to those close to him, especially Aine.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TroubledButCute
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler: If the flashbacks to his DarkAndTroubledPast are indication.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (TV series), Creator/MitsuoIwata (CD drama)
