Kio Kakazu

Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura (JP), Aaron Dismuke (EN)

A kindhearted and sophisticated teenage boy. Kio is easily able to accept the proof that his new friend is an alien, and that both his other friends are secret agents. He knows how to handle firearms, though he is not sure what business his Uncle Yuichi is in to have them. He displays a strong sense of justice, and is willing to take action when he feels it is needed. This sense, and his treatment of others, draws the attention of his female friends. He is unsure about his reaction to all that interest, and their attention begins to cause complications for Kio. Eris the Catian in particular has decided that she wishes to be his mate as she is about to come into her first heat.


Voiced by: Kanae Itō (JP), Tia Ballard (EN)

A 16-year-old scout for the Catian people exploring Earth. Tall and well endowed, she has easily befriended many people, and regular cats she has met on Earth. Initially most do not believe her to be an alien, but she shows Kio the proof directly with her technology, ears and tail. While she is learning the ways of Earth, she is also a competent fighter who employs strategies and technologies not seen on Earth. Her interactions with Kio are closer and more emotional, potentially due to the fact she is 16 and about to enter her first heat. With the kindness and interest he has shown, she has selected him as a mate. Her first heat was forcibly ended by pills as it was causing disruption to her duties as an ambassador and representative of Catians on Earth. She develops feelings for Kio after she found out he risked his life to save her when she was captured

Voiced by: Yukiko Monden (JP), Jamie Marchi (EN)

Despite the name, JACK is actually a woman. Her real name is: Janis Alectos Carotenas Karinato. She works for the CIA and is acting supervisor of Manami. She has noticeably long blond hair, is barely dressed and is often seen eating fast food, appearing to the stereotype of American women.

Maki Itokazu

Voiced by: Hiromi Hirata (JP), Martha Harms (EN)

Kio's teacher and leader of Beautiful Contact Japan Sect. Due to the fact Elis doesn't represent the stereotypical alien (tentacles, green skin, etc), she firmly believes that Eris, despite the obvious, is not really an alien.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: She believes this in this strongly, and as a result, feels that Eris isn't a true alien. In one episode, when Eris was trying to help out with the sci-fi film Kio's club wanted to shoot, everything they shot didn't look very realistic, which Ms. Itokazu was quick to point out. Not that anyone was paying attention to her though.

Yuichi Miyagi

Voiced by: Fumihiko Tachiki (JP), Sonny Strait (EN)

Kio's uncle.
  • Cool Shades
  • Crazy-Prepared: He usually seems to have a lot of things handy when the situation calls for it, such as a flashbang grenade when people were trying to attack Kio and Eris, and when Manami and Aoi needed a boat to rescue Kio and Eris, he happened to have one handy when his director coincidentally also needed it for his action movie.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He doesn't seem too concerned with Kio living with Eris, and doesn't meddle in his nephew's affairs.


Voiced by: Iori Nomizu (JP), Luci Christian (EN)

Antonia Lirimonie Norfedras Papanorgas Arecroteles Cnorses Morfenoss is a wealthy 12 year old, leader of the Underside of Kitten Paw cult and rarely seen without wearing a pair of cat ears. She grows attached to Kio in the last episode due to him becoming a cat boy.


Voiced by: Akeno Watanabe (JP), Clarine Harp (EN)

  • Bad Ass: While she does fail to capture an Assist-a-roid early on, she's shown to be quite competent and one of Antonia's better guards in later episodes.
  • Ninja Maid
  • Scars Are Forever


Voiced by: Sayori Ishizuka (JP), Kristi Kang (EN)
