Characters / Ghost Sweeper Mikami

Reiko Mikami
Voiced by: Hiromi Tsuru (JP), Connie Madera (Latin America)

Tadao Yokoshima
Voiced by: Ryo Horikawa (JP), Moisés Iván Mora (Latin America)

  • Almighty Janitor: By the end of the series, he's has been into space, traveled through time, been trained by multiple gods, saved the world multiple times, shown surprisingly high levels of business acumen, and is arguably the most powerful human being ever to have existed and has saved all of reality by defeating a being that the Gods were powerless against, etc... and still gets next to no respect and is basically a henchman, though it is implied that Mikami may have started paying him a relatively reasonable amount of money.
  • The Chew Toy: Barely a file goes by without him falling prey to Amusing Injuries or some other aggravation, whether because of Mikami's neglect, his own overactive libido, or whatever else the cosmos thinks it'd be fun to visit on him. Even after he saves the day.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He'll do whatever it takes to help the girls who care for him. Not too many of them around, unfortunately, thanks to the 'pervert' part.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Not to Mikami's level, but he can be surprisingly resourceful.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Acts like a perverted idiot most of the time, but plenty of people have noted how tenacious he is at getting a glimpse of some booty (though he fails most of the time) and people like Shouryuuki and Mikami's mother have noted his incredible growth potential which, according to the latter, surpasses even Mikami and Saijo. Heck, he managed to almost beat Mikami during his special training (he had aready beaten twice the number of monsters Mikami did on that same training her first time around), only losing due to hesitation. Heck, even in the first chapter clearly stated that has enormous spiritual powers. Also, he was the one who delivered the killing blow to Astaroth.
  • Determinator: As long as it involves girls. Otherwise...
  • Dirty Coward: ...he turns into this.
  • Hidden Depths: His old friend noted that those who actually took the time to know him will appreciate his good qualities. He did attract at least 3-4 ladies that we can see, after all, some of whom were supposed to be his enemy.
  • Idiot Hero: Between TNA and his life, its always TNA.
  • Iron Buttmonkey: The only thing that seems to work on him is cutting and stabbing attacks...
  • Generation Xerox: He may not look like his parents too much, but his developing relationship with Mikami bore such a startling similarity to his parents' that Mikami became worried on a subconscious level...
  • Weirdness Magnet: Lampshaded by Mikami how he attracts all kinds of female supernatural beings. Ironically enough, this includes her past self...
  • Future Me Scares Me: Was incredulous at how competent his future self was.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Like you wouldn't believe.
  • Meaningful Name: Although Ironic Name would work better—Tadao means "loyal husband". Considering how he'll try to convince just about every other attractive female around his age to help him lose his virginity...
    • One file reveals that, yes, he got married to her 10 years later.
  • Tarot Motifs: XII the Hanged Man
  • Took a Level in Badass: Eventually learns to fight on his own with his spiritual lightsaber and small spiritual balls that can create any effect as long as they're one kanji long. His future self can travel through time on his own power, which not even Mikami and her mother, whose super-special ability is to travel through time, can do.

Mikami's device that spins around and points in the direction of spiritual energy.

Okinu/ Kinu Himuro
Voiced by: Mariko Kouda (JP), Mariana Ortiz (Latin America)

Emi Ogasawara
Voiced by: Michie Tomizawa (JP), Gisella Castillas (Latin America)

Voiced by: Chafurin (JP), Hector Reynoso and later Carlos del Campo (Latin America)

  • Dirty Old Man: Gets along well with long as he's not using him as a lab-rat...
  • Honest John's Dealership: Rule #1 when shopping: Do not let him foist untested prototypes on you.

Dr. Chaos
Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba (JP), Miguel Ángel Sanromán (Latin America)

  • Defeat Means Friendship: He was presented as an enemy to Mikami at first, but two defeats and one case where they need to work together makes him a more neutral character.
  • Mayfly-December Romance: He abjured a relationship with Princess Maria precisely because he knew he'd outlive her, and she deserved a more mortal mate. Nonetheless, he made sure her image lived on as the mystic robot Maria.
  • Mad Scientist: Hooo boy...
  • My Skull Runneth Over: Because his brain has become completely full with information, learning something new means that one of the earliest things still remembered gets overwritten. It really says something that he can understand how the Tenshi Luopan works at first sight, but at the same time forgets what 2+2 results in...
    • Also, he can't remember how to build Maria.
    • If the dream at the end of the series is true he eventually he does manage to mass produce androids. But in a somewhat bitter-sweet turn he has also forgotten about his past adventures with Mikami and company.
  • Older Than They Look: One arc shows him as a strapping 'young' man...who's at least 200 years old.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Not too bad on the eyes when he was younger.
  • Perpetual Poverty: He's practically the poster child.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's been around since before the dark ages, apparently.
  • Tarot Motifs: IX the Hermit

Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Martha Ceceña (Latin America)

  • Action Girl: Well, Action Robot Girl...
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Although it makes sense here, since she was designed in part as a memorial to an old acquaintance of Dr. Chaos's. Played with when a love potion makes her fall in love with Yokoshima and tries to kiss him... with a metal head and enough force to destroy concrete walls...
  • Tarot Motifs: VI the Lovers (with Dr. Chaos) in the manga, XV the Devil (with Dr. Chaos) in the anime.

Meiko Rokudou
Voiced by: Kumiko Nishihara (JP), Diana Pérez (Latin America)

  • The Beastmaster: She has a retinue of twelve shikigami under her control, but no thanks to her complete lack of self-confidence, it's very easy for her to lose control over them. When that happens, Anything standing around her turn into ruins.
  • Berserker Tears: She cries and her Shikigami goes ballistic...which happens a lot.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She could function somewhat normally in society, but when Nightmare invades her mind, he has no idea what goes on in her much so he had to abandon his attempt.
  • Eastern Zodiac: Her shikigami use the Japanese names for the Twelve Heavenly Generals.
  • The Ojou: Her family is incredibly rich.
  • Older Than They Look: Meiko's mother was pregnant with her before Mikami's parents even met. Yet you could be forgiven for thinking she's a little younger than Mikami.
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Shrinking Violet: Self-confidence is a severe rarity in her bloodline.
  • Tarot Motifs: XIV Temperance

Father Kazuhiro Karasu
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Sogabe (JP), Carlos Iñigo (Latin America)

  • Badass Preacher: In his youth. Also note that this is Mikami's teacher.
  • Covert Pervert: Possibly in the film, when he sees Emi fawning over Peter, he cries a bit out of jealousy, lamenting his oaths.
  • Nice Guy: Like Kinu, one of the nicest guy in the series. Not so when he was younger, though.
  • Proto-Otaku: In the GS Mikami '78 arc, he is seen playing the original Space Invaders and takes offense at Mikami's mother branding fans of Space Battle Ship Yamato and Star Wars, as well as cosplayers, as weirdos.
  • Smoking Is Cool: In 1978, that is. Suffering more than usual trying to climb the Sunshine building got him to swear off of it, though.
  • Stupid Good: According to Mikami.
  • Tarot Motifs: V the Hierophant

Pete/Pietro de Bloodeau
Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Luis Daniel Ramírez (Latin America)



Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Irma Carmona (Latin America)

  • Christmas Cake: Well, she's Really 700 Years Old. It's her interactions with Mikami and Yokoshima (the former called her granny) that creates this situation.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Shouryuuki
  • Lady of War
  • Reincarnation: During the battle on the moon, she had to do this after getting shot by Mikami. She did it by performing mouth-to-mouth on Yokoshima and nearly going out Chest Burster style into a younger, "fresher" version of herself. Also resurrected in the battle against Astaroth.
  • Tarot Motifs: XII Death


Michie Mikami

Tiger Torakichi

Date Yukinojou

  • Blood Knight: His primary motivation for joining Medusa was to fight strong enemies.
  • Battle Couple: Him and Yumi.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Unlike Innen and Kankuro, Yukinojou is very careful with the Masoujutsu from the beginning. Under no circumstances will he let it persist to the point that he risks getting corrupted into a demon. Later on, he decides that he needs more power than that, so decides to find an alternative form of spiritual armor that doesn't have the corruption risk—in other words, not derived from demonic energy.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He gets so thoroughly disgusted with the lengths Medusa will go to achieve her goals that he renounces her, and ultimately even upgrades his infernal-energy armor into a less dangerous version with Hanuman's help.
  • Momma's Boy: Yukinojou flat-out idolizes his mother and her zealous care for him, to the point that Kankuro, Yokoshima and Mikami think it crosses into incestuous. Later on, it turns out his mother died when he was young, giving the reader something to potentially temper that problematic image with.
  • The Rival: Considers Yokoshima as this. Turns out he was Yokoshima's rival Tamiya racer when they were kids.

Kankuro Kamada

Inukai/ Fenrir

Shiro Inuzuka

Teruhiko Saijou

  • Biseinen: Apparently was a Bishōnen and, as implied by Marin, Really Gets Around...
  • The Ace: Was introduced as this and, as the series goes on, was shown to be a capable leader.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Odd when you consider his proclaimed devotion to justice, until you realize that he's more worried about just results than just means.
  • The Rival: With Yokoshima for Mikami's affection. It's a holdover from their previous reincarnation.

Hanato Kobato

  • Name's the Same: She has the exact same name as the eponymus title character of one of CLAMP's recent works?
  • Nice Girl: On the same level as Kinu. She's the only character who has never said anything negative about other people.
  • Ocular Gushers: Thinking about her family's poverty usually does this to her.
  • Perpetual Poverty: Her family was cursed with constant poverty through a binboukami. It didn't exactly help that, until they met Yokoshima, the binboukami's attempts to turn himself into a kami of fortune never got anywhere.





  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: See all those eyeball accessory looking things all around her body, on her arms, dangling from her ears? They're all real eyes. But she's cute, so we're not complaining.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name literally means "100 eyes", and she's basically a scout unit who can see great distances.


  • A God Am I: He certainly acts like this towards his minions, and becoming the sole god of the universe is his ultimate goal. Well, one of the two goals he's willing to accept, at least...
  • Bad Boss: Poor Dogura, even if it is a restorable automaton...
  • Big Bad: Though the series doesn't actually have one, he's probably the next best thing since a lot of the series' important events revolve around his actions, and his arc is easily the longest.
  • Death Seeker: Ashtaroth couldn't handle the fact that his role as a demon, to maintain the flow of chaos and generally keep the universe from stagnating, meant that he'd be vilified more often than not. As far as he was concerned, there were only two acceptable alternatives—rewrite the whole of reality to his whims, or this.
  • Empty Quiver
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: Basically, the combination of his two goals means that either he goes, or the universe that causes him so much pain goes.

Dogura Mogura


Mari Ichimonji

Kaori Yumi

  • Alpha Bitch: Until Okinu gets her to see things from Ichimonji's perspective, that is.
  • Battle Couple: Her and Yukinojou.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Sparkling Black Eyes, at that. Not really evil though. It's actually a dig at the Bishojo Genre of the era, which features such eyes prominently.
  • Ojou: Her family's pretty rich and quite well known in GS circles.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ichimonji and her...Well, Yumi could be girly if you squint.
  • Training from Hell: She can't stand the idea that the super-rigorous training Touryu exorcists go through is not the minimum of rigor required to be a good GS, sparking her acting like the Alpha Bitch at first, especially when Ichimonji gets Mikami's respect.

Marin Megumi
