Number 9 Elementary School Team


Yuri Otani

Voiced by: Juri Ihata (JP), Kelly Ray (EN)

A quiet girl, who was voted by her 6th-grade classmates to be their representative on the Alien Party. Yuri is very reluctant to merge with her Borg. She is easily frightened and there is hardly anything that won't make her cry, being scared or happy.

Tropes associated with Yuri:
  • Art Evolution: She originally had black eyes but in later volumes they become green. She also had entirely black hair whilst in Emulators, she has dark brown. Also in Emulators, her hair is longer.
  • Bit-by-Bit Transformation: The single drill on her hair by the end of Emulators is the extent of her transformation and she's still human.
  • Classical Anti-Hero
  • The Eeyore: Becomes more so of one as the series progresses
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Fragile Flower: Taken Up to Eleven, where even looking at her is enough to start the waterworks
  • Idiot Ball: In several chapters, Yuri loses her borg, reducing her mentality to that of an infant, with Kumi and Kasumi having to rescue it in the Forest of Spaceships.
  • The Kirk
  • The Load: All she does whenever she is on duty is either get scared and cry, get in trouble and have Kumi and Kasumi rescue her, or both. However, it is a deconstruction: Yuri never wanted to join the Alien Party, knowing full well that she was afraid of them and would be a liability, but was railroaded into doing so.
  • Only Sane Girl
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Frequently.
  • Tears of Fear: Frequently.
  • Token Human: The only remaining human by the end of Emulators
  • Why Did It Have To Be Aliens: She hates anything relating to aliens.

Kumi Kawamura

Voiced by: Kaori Shimizu (JP), Deborah Rabbai (EN)

The most independent member of the Alien Party, and a 6th-grade student. She has been a member of the Student Council for years and has assisted her widowed mother in her writing activities as well as an above average number of chores for a student her age. In the manga, she is attacked by an alien and is revived by fusing with an alien from the Drill Clan.

Tropes associated with Kumi:
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She has blue eyes whilst in the manga she has black and later on green
  • Anti-Hero:
  • Art Evolution: She had black eyes but later on they're green. She also had light brown hair but they become dark brown and later on regular brown
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Body Horror: After Kumi is resurrected auger bits start tearing through her skin. Near the end her whole skin is destroyed, revealing that her entire body had been replaced by bundles of prehensile drills. Eventually she merges with Kasumi's borg and becomes a borg herself — the first so-called "10th generation" symbiote.
  • Bookworm: Ever since she was in elementary school, she has collected a huge variety of books and has a dedicated room for them in her apartment.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Came Back Wrong
  • Dead Man Walking: Due to her transformation into a Borg in an attempt to revive her.
  • Humanoid Abomination: After her resurrection. The only thing that is human is her head. The rest is all Borg drills, making her true appearance resemble something akin to an octopus.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Kasumi's Red
  • The Spock
  • Team Mom
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Since her resurrection.
  • Was Once a Man: Originally human, now a borg.
  • The Worm That Walks: Since her resurrection, everything save for her head is nothing but Borg drills.
