Satoshi Hiwatari

Voiced by: Akira Ishida (JP), Greg Ayres (EN)
  • Ambiguously Bi: It's hinted that he may have feelings for Risa, and it's equally hinted that he may have romantic feelings for Daisuke. When this is brought up, he doesn't openly confess to anything, though he never denies the accusations either. If anything, he encourages the idea, which has led to the source of much confusion regarding his motives. It has even been stated outright by Dark that Daisuke is the one who causes Satoshi to turn into Krad. Krad himself has also hinted at Satoshi possibly wanting more than a friendship from Daisuke at least once in the anime, and more than twice in the manga. In any case, he at least wants to be close to Daisuke despite the danger of Krad to both of them.
  • Blue Oni
  • Bishōnen
  • Brainy Specs
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Defrosting Ice King: Given that Krad tends to take over when Satoshi gets emotional, this is anything but good.
  • Dropped Glasses: When this happens to him, it's not a good sign.
  • Love Hurts: See above, read the last released chapter, weep.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He may seem cold and distant, but that's because he has an evil Split Personality that wants to causes pain and destruction.
  • Megane
  • Not a Morning Person
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: It's heavily implied that the reason he wears them is to keep Krad at bay.
    • Averted when he loses his glasses in issue 12 and we see that he's actually pretty near sighted. Daisuke actually offers to dive into a rapidly moving river and risk death looking for them but Satoshi assures him that they can manage without them since he was given similar training to Daisuke as a child.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Ship Tease: In the manga, Satoshi has been getting a lot of screentime with Risa.
  • Stoic Spectacles
  • Teen Genius
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Revealed in Volume 12.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Krad and Dark


Voiced by: Mariela Ortiz (EN)

  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 9 of the anime, in which he develops a crush on a normal rabbit at a pet store.
  • Ambiguous Species: It's not clear if he really is supposed to be a rabbit or not. The regular rabbit shown in episode 9 looked much different than him, so it appears he is not really a rabbit. The anime, at least, implies he's a living artwork like Towa, as he loses energy and turns to stone just like she does.
  • Cool Pet
  • Familiar: Functions as this to Dark.
  • Off Model: His feet change size depending on what position he's in. They are not as long when he's standing with them as when he's siting down.
  • Morphic Resonance: He's unable to speak human while transformed into a copy of Daisuke, being only able to make the noises he normally makes.
  • Rascally Rabbit: He acts as a familiar to a Phantom Thief and his shapeshifting powers are used to trick people. In the anime, he also sometimes engages in minor acts of michief such as tagging along with Daisuke at school by hiding in Daisuke's school bag or eating all the strawberries.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Shapeshifter: Though it appears he has limits. The only thing he's shown shapeshifting into is Dark's wings and a copy of Daisuke.
  • Spell My Name with an "S"
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Strawberries.
