     Main Characters 

Asato Tsuzuki

The Moe, Nice Guy with a massive Sweet Tooth Protagonist of the series. He's worked in the Enmacho Celestial Bureaucracy for 70 years since his death when he was 26.

Voiced by: Shinichiro Miki (Japanese), Dan Green (English)


Hisoka Kurosaki

Tsuzuki's younger, more serious partner.

Voiced by: Mayumi Asano (Japanese), Liam O Brien (English)

  • Abusive Parents: His mother and father locked him in the cellar ever since they found out about his powers. Physical abuse is not touched on, but his mother fervently believed he was a demon. He was disclaimed as her child.
    • Actually, one of Hisoka's flashbacks-presented-as-nightmares features other village children asking him "Did your mother hurt you again?" This implies there was physical abuse, and that it was common knowledge to at least the other children.
  • The Cutie: Even (or especially) when he's being tsundere.
  • The Comically Serious
  • Covered in Curse Marks: His death-curse is etched all over his body, though it comes and goes at times. It's implied that even thinking about Muraki will cause the marks to appear on Hisoka's body.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ever since his parents caught wind of his emphatic abilities, Hisoka had been forced to spend an enormous amount of time locked in the cellar of his home for using them. Moreover, it is his empathy that forces him to feel the emotions of others whether he likes it or not. Even after Hisoka becomes a Shinigami, the thoughts and emotions of others—or particularly gruesome visions—could overwhelm him and send his brain into overdrive.
    • Muraki raped him at the age of thirteen and then cursed him to die slowly and painfully over the next three years after Hisoka manages to get outside for the night and witness him murder a woman. Hisoka could have died quickly enough, but Muraki wanted to draw things out. His reason? Because Hisoka was so beautiful, his death had to be 'special'.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady
  • The Empath
  • Empathic Healer
  • Even the Guys Want Him
  • Family Theme Naming: All the members of his family have an aquatic name. Aside from "secret," the character for his first name (密) is more commonly read as "dense."
  • Freudian Excuse
  • Green Eyes
  • Hair-Trigger Temper
  • Hates Being Touched
  • Ill Boy: Even in the afterlife, he encounters side-effects from his empathy (being in large crowds and/or witnessing a particularly gruesome vision) and curse marks (whenever Muraki is nearby). Hisoka is also extremely sensitive to the sun and he can't hold his liquor well at all.
  • Ineffectual Loner
  • Meaningful Name: The characters in Hisoka's full name (黒崎 密) translate to "Kurosaki secret" when put together. Considering he spent the majority of his life hidden away in a cellar, that's rather apt.
    • It gets more depressing when you consider it was originally his older sister's name, and all first born girls are drowned, implying Nagare would have kept her alive as his "secret" if he could have.
    • The character for Hisoka (密) is actually read more commonly as "dense," and is still meaningful as it fits into the family's water-based naming system. "Kurosaki" itself can be roughly translated as "dark water." (Literally 黒: black, 崎: cape, as in near a body of water, not the fashion accessory.) Hisoka has an affinity for water shiki, and his family's god is a water serpent.
  • Mr. Fanservice: All the girls go wild when he enters the scene.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Power Incontinence: Sometimes Hisoka can't control his power to absorb emotions and he passes out.
  • Rape as Backstory
  • Rape as Drama
  • Sidekick: To Tsuzuki.
  • Straight Man
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: For Tsuzuki.
  • The Unfavorite
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy

Chief Konoe

Tsuzuki and the others' boss, the Father To His Men Chief of the Shokan Division.



Seiichiro Tatsumi

Chief Konoe's Sexy Secretary at Enmacho who terrorizes the division about expenses and work. He used to be Tsuzuki's partner.


Does your house... your land... your tradition mean so much to you? So much that you'd let your own son die without seeking treatment?!

Yutaka Watari

The division's resident quirky Mad Scientist.

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki

  • Longest Pregnancy Ever
