    open/close all folders 

    Elements 

Amata Sora

Voiced by: Yuuki Kaji (Japanese), Christopher Bevins (English)

A boy with the power of levitation amplified by intense emotions. Once shunned as a child due to his powers, he has since started wearing boots inlaid with pockets with which he can place weights so as to keep him aground every time. A chance encounter with Mikono, however, ultimately forces him to start embracing his powers.

Mikono Suzushiro

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese), Brina Palencia (English)

A girl hailing from a well-respected family of Element Users who is apparently born without any powers, causing her to become a withdrawn, shy girl who has to rely on her older brother Cayenne. After being saved by Amata, she ends up joining him at Neo DEAVA, whose higher-ups speculate that she may have the power to amplify the Aquarion. She also has a pet rabbit named Shu-Shu, who can hide in her hair like an accessory.

Zessica Wong

Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)

A girl with the power to release energy blasts from her hand. Showing no inhibition about cross-gender Unions (earning her MIX and Suomi's scolding), she also started taking interest in Amata, going so far as to tease him just to see him float around, much to Mikono's jealousy.
  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Badass in Distress: After Mykage unwillingly possesses her.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Because Destiny Says So: Believes that Kagura and Mikono are destined for each other because they are the reincarnations of Apollon and Sylvie, and that Mikono won't choose Amata in the end.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Mikono's Betty for Amata.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: Ever since she started developing genuine feelings for Amata, she's actually stopped teasing him.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Her preference for Stripperiffic clothing becomes a key to defeating Jin's Radius Gnis for the third time. While being hit with missiles that destroy her, Amata's, and Mikono's Vector suits, Zessica realizes that the less clothing she has, the more sensitive she becomes to the missiles, allowing her to dodge them effortlessly. She starts tearing off more of her suit and encourages Amata and Mikono to do the same while she tears down Radius Gnis with Aquarion Spada.
  • Cleavage Window
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Deal with the Devil: A forced one by the Mykage in episode 19.
  • Demonic Possession/Grand Theft Me: Courtesy of Mykage, natch.
  • Dude Magnet
  • Gainaxing
  • Genki Girl: Most of the time.
  • Good Bad Girl
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Gets depressed and jealous whenever she sees Amata and Mikono together, although she mostly keeps it to herself. As of Episode 12, these repressed feelings are starting to seep out, such as accidentally crushing a pole with her powers after she sees Amata fly for Mikono.
  • Hair Decorations: The orange ribbon on top of her head.
  • Hand Blast: One of her abilities
  • Heroes Want Redheads: As of Episode 8, for Amata.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts this in episode 18, but MIX is taken away instead. Tries again in episode 21 and survives again. Tries one more time in the finale, asking Kagura to kill her. He refuses.
  • Hopeless Suitor: For Amata.
  • Hot-Blooded/Leeroy Jenkins: Deconstructed. In episode 18, her hot-headed and rushed decisions gets Mix kidnapped.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: At the end.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The dark to Mikono's light.
  • Love Hurts: It just so happens that every time Amata and Mikono have a moment together, she's always there to witness it.
  • Mind over Matter: Her telekinetic Impact-power (twists a light pole behind her in anger).
  • Misery Poker: Let's see, in a cast where there's characters who has gone through tough situations, like being abandoned by their parents as a child, killing their parents by accident because uncontrollable music-related powers, tortured since childhood, and so on. Zessica's excuse to go through a suicidal depression? Amata not returning her feelings. A bit of a clumsy writing, indeed. To be fair though, by the end of the series we know absolutely nothing about her history or family and it could be tragic for all we know.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: She confesses her unrequited love for Amata while they are in the Aquarion, causing it to go berserk.
  • Psychoactive Powers: Apparently, they are connected to her frustration.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Sexy Backless Outfit
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl
  • Shower of Angst: She goes to go through this in episode 18.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Zessica says she likes innocent guys like Amata.
  • Stepford Smiler: Shows signs of this in Episode 13 to hide her depression/jealousy over Amata and Mikono.
  • Stripperiffic: Who else would wear a tank-top that barely tries to hide her breasts and ridiculously short shorts with a side opening bound together by laces which show that she doesn't wear underwear at all?
    • And the bikini she wears during the Beach Episode? The top is basically a black version of that from her regular clothes.
      • Then she zig-zags this with the dress she wears at the end of the episode, which shows off a lot more of her chest.
  • Tarot Motifs: Is associated with the Ace of Diamonds.
  • The Spook: In an odd way. She's clear a good guy, but unlike everyone else we learn nothing about her the entire show. Not her past. Not her family. Nothing. Just vague hints that maybe she's someones reincarnation, and maybe something isn't quite right with her, and maybe her flirty cheerfulness is a cover for some pain of some kind, but those are just hints that are never clarified.
  • The Tease
  • Thanks for the Mammary: Is at the receiving end of this from an Altair local in episode 19. Strangely it wasn't done out of perversion, but curiosity - the locals of Altair have not seen a living female in ages and thus don't know what breasts are.
  • Vapor Wear
  • What Is This Feeling?: Started feeling embarrassment at the end of Episode 8 over seeing Amata half-naked after all three stripped off their Vector suits to allow them to defeat Radius Gnis.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?
  • Why Did It Have to be Ghosts?
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki: After changing her clothes in episode 17, in an attempt to imitate Mikono to gain Amata's affections.

Cayenne Suzushiro

Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura (Japanese), Jason Liebrecht (English)

Mikono's older brother and a Chick Magnet (though to a lesser extent than Shrade). His power is psychic vision through a red point of light emanating from his forehead (like a Third Eye of sorts), which allows him to become an excellent sniper. However, he is also haunted by visions of Mikono perishing through a chain of events apparently linked to the Aquarion, and thus he tries his best to keep Mikono safe, even if he has to demoralize her.

Andy W. Hole

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English)

Andy can find any weak point in any structure and has control over the power of the earth. Out of all the boys of Neo DEAVA, he is the most eager to make contact with girls.

MIX

Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (Japanese), Alexis Tipton (English)

A strict, serious girl with absolutely no interest (and, in fact, outright disgust) for males, believing them inferior to females in terms of combat potential. She is especially disdainful of Andy and his womanizing habits; in fact, her power is the diametrical opposite of Andy's: creating enclosures and covering up any weak spots.

Shrade Elan

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese), Eric Vale (English)

Neo DEAVA's smartest and most popular student, whose poor health prevents him from going to active service. His power is using sound to manipulate brainwaves.

Yunoha Surool

Voiced by: Yui Ogura (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

A terminally shy little girl with the power to turn herself invisible. Until Amata encouraged her to come out of her shell, all that is seen of her is a green frog-like doll she always carries around.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Jin.
  • Cry Cute/Tender Tears: The sight of her in tears is enough to make Jin start wavering over his original goal of personally capturing a "Rare Igura" worthy of becoming Altair's "Eve." Come Episode 13, she breaks down crying as Jin dies in front of her.
  • Cute All Along
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Amata initially thought of her as this at the end of Episode 7 until she reveals she's a live human girl all along.
  • The Cutie
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Sings the second ending Yunoha no Mori
  • Fragile Flower: To an even greater degree than Mikono.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Always carries around a green frog-like plushie which is, until Episode 7, her only sign of presence.
  • Go Through Me: Places herself between Jin and Cayenne, who was then armed with a stun gun, in order to protect the former when the latter confronted him about being a spy. The latter's gun fires at that precise moment, only for Jin to place himself in front of Yunoha and, by pure accident, block it with an energy shield.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Had a crush on Amata, well before Jin came along.
  • Heroic BSOD: Jin's death nearly drove her into becoming a Death Seeker. She recovers once Jin's spirit and Mikono encourage her to live.
  • Invisibility: Her power. She has great misgivings about her powers, which make many think she's a ghost. Though it turns out to be pretty useful in their second fight against Jin's Radius Gnis, where she can turn the Aquarion invisible and thus impervious to damage, allowing Amata to finish it off with the "Subliminal Punch."
  • Multicolored Hair: Lilac turning to golden brown at the lower half, which bears a striking resemblance to Byakuren Hijiri.
  • Older Than She Looks: As a matter of fact, she's actually fifteen.
  • Personality Powers: Her power of perfect camouflage seems well-suited to her innate shyness.
  • Secret Secret Keeper: In Episode 12, she discovers that Jin is The Mole thanks to Mykage's interference. Conflicted by his deceit and her growing friendship/relationship with him, she keeps this knowledge from Jin until the next episode.
  • Shrinking Violet
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Jin.
  • Token Mini-Moe
  • Twice Shy: With Jin.

Sazanka Bianca

Voiced by: Megumi Nakajima (Japanese), Tia Ballard (English)

A dark-skinned girl who apparently is a fan of homoerotic subtexts.

Malloy Direzza

Voiced by: Kensuke Sato (Japanese), Ian Sinclair (English)

A handsome dark-skinned student with the power to destabilize objects.

    Neo DEAVA 

Donar Dantes

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese), Justin Cook (English)

A veteran soldier and instructor of the male side of Neo DEAVA, Donar has a pair of prosthetic arms to replace those he lost on the day of the Aquarion Disaster. He also used to be sharpshooter.

Suomi Conebi

Voiced by: Sanae Kobayashi (Japanese), Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)

Instructor of the female side of Neo DEAVA. Like MIX, she has hints of misandry and can be sometimes seen in mild arguments with her male counterpart, Donar.

Principal/Commander

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese), John Swasey (English)

Current instructor of Neo DEAVA.

Zen Fudo

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese), Brandon Potter (English)

High Commander of Neo DEAVA who offers guidance to the students in his own unusual way.

Crea Drosera

Voiced by: Sakura Tange (Japanese), Carrie Savage (English)

A childlike girl with an improbably high IQ of 300 and Chairwoman of Neo DEAVA. She is also responsible for giving approval for Unions.

    Altair 

Kagura Demuri

Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama (Japanese), Taliesin Jaffe (English)

One of Izumo's two main subordinates and a hot-blooded warrior who loves charging into battle headlong with Mithra Gnis, a machine suited for melee combat and Kagura's tendency to move around like a quadrupedal beast. He gains the ability of "Reversal".
  • An Axe to Grind: His Mithra Gnis wields an axe.
  • Animal Eyes
  • Animorphism: He can change to a black wolf from time to time. On episode 11, after Mykage awakes his (fake) Genetic Memory, it gains red eyes and matching fur.
  • Attack Reflector: Has gained the power to reverse, which allowed him to reflect Amata's Mugen Punch.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: He never retreats from battle until he wins, even when it's clear that he's on disadvantage. Most of the times he gets whisked away by Mykage at the last moment.
  • Beast Man
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Mykage abused him mentally, physically, and emotionally way back since childhood from the moment Mykage split him from his other half Amata. Made worse by the fact that he finds it pretty normal, or at least is used to his torturing. One can only imagine how much Mykage has screwed him up.
    • Confirmed by Word of God, even after he unwillingly killed his father Izumo, he still didn't grieved over it. Yamamoto said that being raised by Mykage made Kagura a twisted person.
  • Berserk Button: He does not react well towards anyone that stands between him and getting his "wench."
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Amata's Betty for Mikono.
  • Blood Knight: To the point he'll do anything to stay in battle, even disobey orders. Even stealing a leg from another mecha to replace his missing one...
  • Blow You Away: His Mithra Gnis can cast a tornado, although he just uses it only twice.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Shown when Mykage controls him to kill his father Izumo.
  • Cain and Abel: With Amata.
  • Combat Pragmatist
  • Convenient Coma: Mykage can do this to him by humming Sousei No Aquarion.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Planned to give one to Amata on episode 13, by reversing his blood flow.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead
  • Determinator: Say what you want about the guy, but he is pretty determined when it comes to getting his "wench".
  • Enemy Without: Of Amata.
  • Entitled to Have You: He has this towards Mikono, reinforced even more by Mykage, who manipulated him to believe he's Apollon, Sylvie's past life lover, and therefore having the right to claim her.
  • Evil Redhead
  • Expy: Bears a strong resemblance to Apollo, down to their heightened sense of smell. Episode 11 implies that he is the reincarnation of Apollo/Apollon, but 11 episodes later is actually revealed to be Amata's Enemy Without and fellow reincarnation of Apollonius's pet dog, Pollon, who turned out to be the original incarnation of Apollo form the first anime.
  • Fake Memories: As revealed in Episode 18, Kagura's "memories" of his past life with "Sylvie" as "Apollon" were implanted by Mykage, based on the "Skies of Aquaria".
  • Fangs Are Evil
  • Fashionable Asymmetry
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Forced to Watch: On episode 8 Mykage forced him to watch as Jin "violated" Mikono by stripping her clothes with his mecha.
  • Freudian Excuse
  • Fur and Loathing
  • Grumpy Bear
  • Heel-Face Turn: Come Episode 26, after Mykage disposes of him for the last time, in an Out of Character moment, he decides to help Amata and Mikono to fight against Mykage, starting with freeing Zessica from the subconscious realm she is consigned to after her body was taken over by Mykage, and then forming a gattai with Amata.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: At the end.
  • Karma Houdini/Easily Forgiven: Kagura seems to have been accepted by Neo-Daeva judging by the epilogue. Take note this is the same place where he went on a rampage and actually caused the deaths of several of its students. Some of it may be justified since Mykage took part in it with his mind control, but some of his actions were completely on his own will, such as repeatedly trying to kill Amata and beating everyone who gets in his way, i.e MIX and Andy.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: As time passed he's increasingly became a liability to Izumo's plans, not to mention all the collateral damage he does whenever he's near his "smelly wench." So much so he had to be reined in by Mykage (and is literally caged) after losing to Aquarion for the second time. Fortunately for Mykage, he found a way to use Kagura's unpredictability in his favor.
    • By episode 23 he rebels against Izumo when all of Altair tries to get Mikono to revive their planet. Even Izumo says that he no longer has the right to call himself a citizen of Altair.
  • Leitmotif: Has "Beast Beat", "Kagura's Wasteland" and "Fragments of Eve".
  • Like Father, Like Son: He's a lot like his father Izumo in his youth. The difference between the two being that he doesn't care if Mykage finds out about the woman he loves like his father did.
  • Literal Split Personality: He's the "dark side" of Amata split by Mykage when the latter was a kid, who rewrote his memories and renamed him "Kagura".
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: If you take that "kill" is the opposite of sexual reproduction, he falls into this. Starting from episode 11 he never stops talking about how badly he wants to "kill" Mikono and how he's going to kill her over and over again...
  • Love Hungry: Revealed to be what drives all of his actions. Being tortured and controlled by Mykage made him desperate to be accepted by someone, in this case, Sylvie.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: With a lot of help from Mykage.
  • Loving a Shadow: Even though he was attracted to Mikono's smell in the beginning, from the moment Mykage mindcontrols him to believe he's Apollon he starts to chase after Mikono because he thinks she's "his Sylvie".
  • Luminescent Blush: Around Mikono.
  • Moment Killer: Is a constant offender of this towards Amata/Mikono moments, specifically in Episode 5 and Episode 12.
  • More Than Mind Control: To the point that all of his actions that he attempts to do to get his "smelly wench" are all part of Mykage's plan.
  • Motive Decay: Mixed with Angst? What Angst? and Out-of-Character Moment. By episode 26 he gets over his obsession with Sylvie/Mikono unexpectedly quickly, happily handing Mikono to Amata and even supporting him in the process. Take in account that one episode earlier he said that he was willing to sacrifice his own parents if that was necessary to be with Mikono, later saying he'd first watch the world burn before losing her. Out-of-Character Moment indeed.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: He attempts this in Episode 13 by threatening Amata after the latter rescues Mikono from him, but he is thwarted by Andy and Mix.
    • Later on episode 15 he tries again, by punching him to death. Fortunately, Wings of Detachment came to be useful.
    • And again on episode 22.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Gives quite the beating to Amata on episode 15 while attempting to kill him.
  • The Nose Knows: An important point in his character, since he recognized Silvia's reincarnation by her smell.
  • No Sense of Personal Space
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: He'd rather chase after his "smelly wench" Mikono than join the hunt for the "New Eve."
  • Not Worth Killing: Spares Zessica after she asked him to kill her because killing someone who wants to die for Amata disgusts him.
  • One-Man Army: He was already powerful in Episode 1 where he thrashed two Aquarias like they were nothing. This is turned Up to Eleven in Episode 11, where he took down several of Altair's machines, wreaking havoc across Ianthe (capital of Altair) unless Izumo reopens the gate to Vega. Altair had to fire their Wave Motion Gun thrice and pepper him with a Beam Spam until he goes down... only for him to rise back and, with Mykage's aid, manage to teleport to Vega, where he defeats Amata's Aquarion Evol, and has to be defeated by a double-Aquarion teamup (Gepard of Jin/Yunoha, Cayenne and Zessica, and Spada of Shrade, Amata and Mikono).
  • Personality Powers: Inverted. His new found Reversal abilities changes his own personality. Shown in his encounter with Mikono in Episode 13, he now says the opposite of what he really feels.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Most of the time, when he isn't around Mikono.
  • Primal Stance
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In his wolf form.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Jin's blue. And also the red to Amata's blue.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker
  • Shock and Awe: His axe can do this.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Though thanks to Mykage in Zessica's body controlling him to kill both his mother and father.
  • Stalker Shrine: Kind of a digital one. On episode 11 while he screams "MY SYLVIE" the inside of his Mithra Gnis displays tons of pictures of Mikono, all of them varying in colors as they all form a big collage of Mikono's face.
    • Later there's a more non-romantic example with Alicia. On Vega, when Amata enters his room, where also Kagura was staying, he finds a wall full of pictures of Alicia (Kagura didn't knew Alicia was his mother).
  • Stalker with a Crush
  • Superpower Lottery: In a world where powers range from flying to filling holes, he can reverse ANYTHING. Think of the possibilities here.
  • Tarot Motifs: Is associated with the Black Joker.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At the end, in a very Out of Character moment.
  • The Unfavorite: When compared to his other half Amata. His parents never even stopped by to visit him before passing on. And even on her deathbed, Alicia never looked like she cared about him....
  • Unwitting Pawn: His murderous obsession for Mikono makes him Mykage's perfect lapdog.
  • Villainous Crush: On Mikono.
  • Wild Card
  • Wild Child: At first, he looks like one, but is not, really. Is very implied that Mykage raised him and he never grew out alone in the wild as a kid, since most of the time Mykage kept him in a cage.
    • Even more subverted since he shares Amata's memories of living in Vega until the moment Mykage separated them. He even remembers Alicia's voice.
  • Yandere: For Mikono.
    It stinks. I want to kill that wench. I want to kill her, then take her in my arms... and crush her! My... Sylvie!
    • However it seems he says and hears the reverse of things in regards to her, as episode 15 showed. When Mikono asks him why he doesn't kill her right there on the scaffolds he blushes and looks over her body and asks basically "Right here?!" Its very possible he actually was meaning to say "I want to love her, take her in my arms and hold her softly."
    • As episode 25 reveals that Mykage's torturing and abuse made him desperate to find someone that would accept him, reason why he grew so obsessed with Mikono.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Like Zessica, he believes that he and Mikono will end up together because they are the reincarnations of Apollon and Sylvie.
    • Again, subverted since he's actually Pollon, the shadow angel dog, and his unrequited love for Celiane is what kept him reincarnating.

Jin Muso

Voiced by: Jun Fukushima (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English)

Izumo's other subordinate and a cunning strategist. Unlike the hot-headed Kagura, Jin prefers manipulating Abductor Mooks from high up in space or puppet-controlling Radius Gnis, a machine suited for long-range combat which complements his natural ability to generate energy shields.

Izumo Kamurogi

Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto (Japanese), Mike McFarland (English)

Commander of Altair's reconnaissance mission to Vega.

Mykage Towano

Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum (English)

A Priest of Altair who has recently awoken from stasis in a glass-like encasing.

    Other characters

Voiced by: Kiyono Yasuno (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
