Shu Ouma

"I'm dense? Maybe it's true that my mind works out of step with everyone else's. It's just that I don't know what to say to other people. So I hide my nervousness and try to go along with what they say. That's how I've made the quasi-friendships in my life."

Voiced by: Yuuki Kaji, Minami Tsuda (child) (Japanese), Austin Tindle, Lara Woodhull (child) (English)

An unsociable seventeen-year-old high school student at Tennouzu High School and a member of the modern motion picture research club, Shu gains the ability "Power of Kings," enabling him to extract weapons from other people, after a chance encounter with Idol Singer Inori Yuzuriha.

His Void is a crystalline arm that allows him to absorb the Voids he has drawn from the time he acquired the arm onwards. However, he also absorbs out the donors' weaknesses, whether physical or psychological, taking them upon himself. Also, if he dies while he has someone else's Void in him, they die too.

  • Accidental Pervert:
    • It takes the poor guy a couple of tries to get Void-extraction quite right.
    • He accidentally pulls the pervert card a few times with Ayase enough for her to initially think of him as a "pervy brat."
  • All-Loving Hero: By Episode 11, he's upgraded to this. He even asks permission before using Voids.
  • Always Save the Girl
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He's an Extreme Doormat with No Social Skills who admits to himself that his mind might be out of step with everyone else's, and has only made "friends" by going along with what other people say. When he makes a carelessly cold remark about someone else and is reprimanded for it, he can only think about his own feelings that were hurt, rather than feeling bad about what he said. He also has trouble with making eye contact with other people.
  • Anti-Hero
  • Apologetic Attacker:
    • When extracting Voids. Not so much anymore.
    • Subverted in Episode 19. He asks and apologizes while extracting everyone's Voids.
  • An Arm and a Leg: His Void Genome arm is cut off by a Back from the Dead Gai.
  • Artificial Limbs
  • The Atoner: Following the disaster that was the Kingdom of the Void.
  • Badass: While you might at first mistake him for a spineless wimp, Shu gives us plenty of examples of why he has balls of titanium after the first 10 episodes.
    • Badass Longcoat: Along with a Scarf of Asskicking. However, it seems that it's just Shu's standard winter gear and that Shu happens to be a trendy dresser.
    • Heartbroken Badass: Two of his three potential love interests end up dead by the end of the series. Shu really can't a catch a break.
  • Bad Boss: What eventually made the school turn against him in Episode 17.
  • Bad Liar: His delivery is pretty bad. However, the lies themselves are pretty creative as well as being plausible. Assuming they weren't rehearsed.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Gai's Veronica and the Archie to Hare's Betty and Inori's Veronica (and possibly Ayase as his Third-Option Love Interest).
  • Break the Cutie:
    • While he'd already been through a lot of shit and held up remarkably well, Episode 9 breaks him.
    • In Episode 15, Hare's death breaks him even harder, triggering the Dull Eyes of Unhappiness and a killing rampage after taking in Inori's Void in a way that comes off as borderline rape.
    • The discovery of what happens when people's Voids break at the end of Episode 16 sends him even further down the slippery slope, triggering a fit of maniacal laughter that ends with him thinking about breaking Argo's Void.
    • Gai breaks him even more by betraying him, cutting off his arm, and stealing the Void Genome.
  • Bridal Carry: Ayase is carried in this fashion by Shu in Episode 21 when she allows the latter to help her into her Endlave.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Has this dynamic with Inori after defrosting her. He also has it with Hare.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Happens at the end of Episode 17 when a revived Gai cuts off his right arm off and steals the Void Genome.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Shu verbally calls the name of his friends when he uses their respective Void.
  • Cartwright Curse
  • The Chew Toy: His life sucks.
  • Chick Magnet: Inori, Ayase, Hare, (arguably) Tsugumi, Kanon, Miyabi (Scythe-tan).
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Subverted to hell and back every episode.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: In the first few episodes, he wavers back and forth between trusting Gai and Funeral Parlor or distrusting them and potentially using the transmitter that he received from Major Segai to punish the rebels. This is ultimately resolved when he accidentally sees Gai's vulnerable side, along with the revelation that the transmitter was a targeting beacon for the Leucocyte and that using it would have killed him.
  • Cosmic Plaything
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Cursed with Awesome: His Void Genome grants him the power to recreate Voids he has previously used. However, it has the side effect of carrying with it the weaknesses of the Void he's copying, in this case he acquires Souta's Apocalypse Virus.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Hare's death took Shu's life a turn for the worst. He decides to go along with the Void ranking system to separate the "good" from the "trash" and become "king."
  • Dark Messiah
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: The way he befriends Inori, Yahiro, and Gai after learning their secrets. However, the first had an ulterior motive, the second backfired, and the third could go any which way and he wouldn't be able to do a thing about it. Friendship is pretty tentative for him, but it ends up working out for him in the end.
  • Dented Iron: After all his adventures, he's rewarded with blindness and a missing arm requiring prosthetics. Here's hoping saving the world was worth it.
  • Despair Event Horizon
  • Determinator: Not so much in general (as far as we've seen), but there is one notable instance. He stupidly picks a fight with Gai, who hits him with a haymaker and a jab in the face and then with a vicious gut shot and another jab to the face in quick succession. He just shrugs it off and hits him back.
  • Distressed Dude: Spends most of Episode 4 in this role when he gets arrested by the GHQ.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?:
    • Void extraction is a bit... evocative of something else.
    • His forced Void extraction on Inori after Hare's death gives off rape vibes, and continues to happen in other extractions afterwards.
  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: The only thing he got from saving the world was several of his friends' deaths, Inori's death, a prosthetic arm to replace the one Gai sliced off and permanent blindness.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: Double Subverted. He is unable to prevent Inori from getting captured but ultimately goes after her in the end. Of course, it's arguable how much of his motivation was "pretty girl in trouble" and not "repressed Extreme Doormat wants to finally do something interesting with his life." Since Episode 12, and the revelation that Inori is meant to be a vessel for Mana, he seems to have moved on to mostly platonic interest, needing Inori to confide in with his fears that his plans are failing.
  • The Eeyore
  • Everyone Can See It: Gai, Segai, and Ayase easily deduce his feelings for Inori. Enough that it gets used against him twice: Segai subtly threatens Inori's safety, should he not cooperate with the GHQ, and Gai uses Inori to get him to join Funeral Parlor.
  • Evil Costume Switch
  • Evil Laugh: He makes one in Episode 16 that would make Light and Lelouch proud.
  • Extreme Doormat: See above quote.
  • Expy: The staff admitted in a recent Q&A in London that Shu is actually based off of the director, Tetsuro Araki.
  • Fallen Hero: Once Hare dies and he decides "to become king" and separate the "good" from the "trash", he pretty much becomes the anime highschool-aged version of Stalin. And its just painful to watch.
  • Fatal Flaw: Kindness. Hare even calls him out on it before she dies.
  • Flight: The Power of Kings already allows Shu to Double Jump, but Inori's sword allows him to simply zoom around through the air.
  • Foil: To Gai, pretty obviously. Just check out how a few of Gai's character tropes reflect on his.
  • Forgiveness Requires Death: In the end, Shu plans on making a Heroic Sacrifice to atone for his sins but Inori averts this.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: With Gai.
  • Freak Out: Hare's death, and to a lesser extent Jun's, causes him to become seriously deranged.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: The things he saw whilst linked with Jun drove him perilously close to this. Afterwards, he displays pretty reasonably close symptoms to those of PTSD.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: Shuu switches to the evil variant at the end of Episode 15 after getting broken by Hare's death and deciding that he'll become king and seperate the good from the trash.
  • Green-Eyed Monster:
    • He starts to feel this in Episode 5 towards Inori's and Gai's relationship.
    • In Episode 8, his jealousy of Souta nearly confessing to Inori nearly makes him also almost confess his feelings to Inori with Funeral Parlor overhearing the exchange.
  • The Heart: He's growing into this, despite, or perhaps because of, being The Spock. His rationalist tendencies don't take into account things like blinding loyalty or patriotism, and his social awkwardness makes him more likely to speak up when no one else will. Therefore, as a new member of the fairly disciplined Funeral Parlor, he's likely to be the first and only one to bring up little things like 35% mortality rates, innocent bystanders, etc. to Gai.
  • Hereditary Hairstyle
  • Heroic BSOD:
    • A real doozy. The things he saw and did in Episode 9 did horrible things to his mind.
    • A Virus-infected Mana nearing killing Gai, getting Ax-Crazy, and causing Lost Christmas (all because of him) triggered this in his childhood enough to get Trauma-Induced Amnesia.
    • He is completely broken as of Episode 15 and Hare's death.
    • Episode 17 breaks him even more, as Gai reappears to steal the power of the king and Arisa causes the school to revolt against him.
  • Heroic Resolve: After the above, Inori showed him how much of a difference he really made for her. This, and her attempt to single-handedly fight off a troupe of GHQ Endlaves in order to save him gives Shu the strength to overcome his previous trauma and fight to gain the third Void Genome so he can stop GHQ.
  • Heroic RROD: Use of his Void in addition to the third Void Genome means Shu is going to die in all likelihood. He also used it to cure Souta of the Apocalypse Virus by taking the virus onto himself.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He has next to no self confidence and repeatedly downs himself because of it.
    Shu: [about Inori getting captured] Should I really just accept this? I felt... a little relieved because I wasn't in danger anymore. That's how pathetic I am. When you get right down to it, she was way out of my league. I wanted to take it. I wanted to get close to her and touch her hand!
  • I Am Who?: The kid who accidentally triggered Lost Christmas.
  • Ignored Epiphany: Finding out what the destruction of their Void can do to someone. It gives him... ideas.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: He has stated on more than one occasions of his hopes of becoming like Gai. He realizes in Episode 11 that he can't be like Gai and has to do things his own way.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: To Hare. Her death triggers his Start of Darkness.
  • The Immune: Never contracts the Apocalypse Virus despite having essentially been at Ground Zero of Lost Christmas (unlike Gai who was there too) because his sister Mana, who essentially became the Apocalypse Virus, was in love with him. Subverted in episode 19 when he extracts Souta's Void and takes Souta's illness into himself, though even then he displays less severity than Souta.
  • Indy Ploy: He is an absolute master of adapting to and using his new powers. Even taking into account his being an Instant Expert regarding his weapons, he still uses them quickly and creatively to get out of tight spots in high stress situations, often without having any foreknowledge of what weapon he'd be pulling out next.
  • In-Series Nickname: He is called a "faceless bastard" by Daryl because the latter can't see his face through his Endlave monitor. Daryl finally sees his face in Episode 11.
  • Instant Expert: Appears to be one of the Required Secondary Powers of the Void Genome. He's able to use new weapons effectively immediately after drawing them. Confirmed later on. People have to train with their Voids before they can use them effectively. While Souta's Void had proved incredibly useful in his hands, Souta can only use it to open cans.
  • Jerkass Façade: After Hare's death, he forcibly extracts Inori's Void to go on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge on the Anti Bodies, blames Souta for Hare's death and gives him a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown, and decides that kindness is pointless and to go along with the Void ranking system with him reigning over the student body as their "king." However, when he's alone with Inori he goes back to his normal self and admits he does regret his actions. He quits the act by Episode 19.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: After Hare's death. Dear Lord.
  • Laughing Mad: As of Episode 16.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Whenever Shu pulls out Yahiro's void, it's clear that things have gotten dire.
  • Like Sister, Like Spouse: He's in love with a girl who looks exactly like his sister.
  • Love Hurts: In Episode 5.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name is written with the kanji for "gather" (集). Considering what he's been doing in regards to the Voids... Episode 20 reveals that it's meant as "group," because Kurosu (Shu's father) could do anything alone, but was always lonely as a result, and really wanted to be with other people. Thus, he named Shu as this, with the hope that Shu wouldn't be lonely like him.
  • Mega Manning: Unfortunately, his Void doesn't just pass on useful stuff—when he took Souta's Void, he took his dose of the Apocalypse Virus as well.
  • Mercy Kill: Forced to do this to Jun, and later to Gai and Mana.
  • Messianic Archetype: Post-Character Development.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: A mild example—after the apocalyptic devastation he unleashes during his first mission with the Funeral Parlor, he decides that whilst what he did was sort of worthwhile, he just isn't cut out for the life of a terrorist.
  • Mysterious Past: Which is eventually revealed at the end of the first half.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: After regaining his memories, he develops the true Power of the King; the ability to extract Voids without knocking people out, meaning other people can use Voids as weapons now, provided Shu extracts them.
  • No Social Skills: It's a pretty big deal for him, and it doesn't help that some of his worse habits (like avoiding eye-contact) make extracting Voids harder.
  • Ordinary High-School Student
  • Parental Abandonment: His mother is neglectful and has to work for days at a time, and his father died ten years prior to the story during Lost Christmas. Despite that, he seems to have a genuinely caring relationship with his mother.
  • The Peter Principle: Gets him (and just about everyone else) into serious trouble from Episode 14 onwards. Turns out that he's so far outside his competence zone that he has to resort to being a brutal dictator just to get everybody to listen to him. Needless to say, this works out absolutely swimmingly.
  • Power at a Price: Using his second Void Genome leads to him contracting the Apocalypse Virus.
  • The Power of Friendship: Ultimately how Shu uses his Voids, since he is literally wielding the weaponized hearts of his friends. Not so much after becoming a Fallen Hero.
  • Powers in the First Episode
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: His Void level was read as XXXX, which probably foreshadows that his Void power depends on the Voids he absorbs.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Both an example and an aversion; it just depends on the situation.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Gai's Blue Oni.
  • Refusal of the Call: He is initially obligated to help Funeral Parlor using his "Power of Kings" ability, but he declines joining their organization. Naturally, a New Transfer Student will change things.
  • Resigned to the Call
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After Hare's death.
  • Rule of Symbolism: His Void forces him to take on the 'sins' of those he uses through absorbing their weaknesses.
  • Scarf of Asskicking
  • Scylla and Charybdis: He has to decide whether to implement the Void ranking system and divide the students based on their Voids' effectiveness, or not go through with it since said students would feel discriminated against. After Hare's death, he's set on going through with it after all.
  • Second Love: Seemingly to Ayase following Gai's death.
  • Skunk Stripe: He has one lock of hair that is distinctively lighter than the rest. His dad does too.
  • The So-Called Coward: He's very passive and sometimes apathetic, but he holds together pretty well in times of crisis, and for better or for worse, embroils himself in the war between the government and Funeral Parlor. Inori and later Hare, in particular, both inspire some level of self-confidence in him.
  • Spell My Name with an S: His name is usually spelt as either Shu or Shuu.
  • The Spock: Rationalizes (or tries to, anyway) just about every aspect of human interaction. Comes as a result of him having no intuition regarding feelings or empathy. It also leads him to easily misread social cues and make a fool of himself if he doesn't think things through very carefully.
  • Stepford Smiler
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To his father.
  • Student Council President: As of Episode 14.
  • Super Empowering: The True Power of the King works like this, though Shu still has to draw them out.
  • Taking Up The Mantle: Him becoming the Student Council President seems to double as making him The Leader of La Résistance.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Gai and Mana.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By the end of the first episode, and usually through each episode after.
  • Tragic Hero: He is probably one of the most tragic out there. Every time life begins to go well for him, it turns into a train wreck. And it doesn't help that literally no one except Hare understands how he feels inside.
  • Trauma Conga Line: From Episode 15 onwars, oooooh boy.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: He forgot his memories of his older sister Mana and of Gai being his best friend "Triton" due to witnessing Mana becoming increasing unstable due being infected Apocalypse Virus and triggering Lost Christmas.
  • Tron Lines: His Void.
  • Unlucky Everydude: UP TO ELEVEN.
  • Unwanted Harem: At the end of the show, Inori, Mana, Ayase and Hare have all made attempts to jump his bones.
  • Weapon of Choice: Inori's void sword, and to a lesser extent Yahiro's void shears.
  • We Cannot Go On With Out You: Yet another disadvantage of his Void - if he dies, so does everyone whose Voids he's currently housing.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Yahiro and Inori consider it to be the only way to get it to work. Or, more accurately, Yahiro felt that it was the only way for things to work when Shu was in charge, and eventually decided it wasn't worth the effort.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Almost every friend Shu has ever had stabs him in the back at one point or another.
  • You Monster!: Inori is called this by Shu in Episode 11. He also calls his sister this. She does not take this well.

Inori Yuzuriha

"Believe. You can do it. For sure. Because I... belong to you now."

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese), Alexis Tipton (English)

The popular internet Idol Singer of the band Egoist, who Shu is a fan of, sixteen-year-old Inori doubles as a member of the resistance group, Funeral Parlor. After a covert mission to steal the GHQ's Void Genome goes wrong and she ends up injured, Inori meets Shu and entrusts the Void Genome to him.

Her Void is an enormous sword with impressive cutting power and the power to shoot sword beams. She also seems to have the power to imbue the sword with other peoples' Voids. When extracted by Daath, it takes a more wing-like shape.

Gai Tsutsugami

"Remember this, Shu Ouma: there are only two paths you can choose. You can sit quietly and be selected out of this world, or you can adapt and change!"

Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura, Akeno Watanabe (child) (Japanese), Micah Solusod, Terri Doty (child) (English)

The seventeen-year-old rebel leader of Funeral Parlor, Gai is described as Shu's rival and seeks to use Shu's "Power of Kings" to fight against the GHQ.

His Void is a gun that can unlock people's Voids.
  • Always Someone Better: Shu's opinion of him, partly due to Shu's own insecurity and partly due to everyone's idolization of him and Inori's closeness to him. Ironically, he seems to feel this way about Shu in regards to the implication that both the infected-Mana and Inori have chosen Shu over him.
  • Ambiguously Evil: For the fearless leader of La Résistance, he raises a lot of red flags. Being a near-peerless Manipulative Bastard doesn't help.
  • Back from the Dead: As of Episode 16.
  • Badass Boast:
    Gai: Well, look at all these corpses.
    Thug: Huh? What corpses?
    Gai: I'm afraid you boys got yourself into a situation you'll have to die your way out of. So you all look like a bunch of corpses to me.
  • Badass In Charge
  • Batman Gambit: Severed Shu's arm, stole his Void Genome, butchered his classmates, decimated an army, allowed Mana to possess Inori and instigate a second Lost Christmas, all while betting on Shu to somehow overcome his Despair Event Horizon, obtain the third Void Genome and kill him and Mana so they may rest in peace. AND IT WORKED.
  • Beneath the Mask: Initially comes off as an arrogant jerk who cares little for his subordinates, but is, in fact, deeply affected by their deaths and doubts his abilities as a leader. He acts so cocksure largely because he sees it as the best way to lead Funeral Parlor. See Jerkass Façade, below.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Shu's Betty.
  • Bishounen
  • Celibate Hero: In spite of the above, he doesn't seem seriously interested in romance aside from his whole motivation for his war against the GHQ being a woman that he wants to hold in his arms. This turns out to be Shu's older sister Mana, who he eventually reaches, albeit Together in Death.
  • The Charmer: Ayase, Inori, and Arisa can surely attest to his sheer magnetism, though as with so many other things about him, it's unknown how much is him being a gentleman and how much is calculated manipulation.
  • The Chessmaster: An excellent strategist—every one of his moves appears to be planned down to the ninth decimal point. There hasn't been a moment yet shown where he hasn't known exactly what's going on, even when Out-Gambitted.
  • Child Soldier: Shinbugi reveals that he was one before starting Funeral Parlour... in Africa, for some reason.
  • Co Dragon: He plays this role for Da'ath along with Keido from Episode 17 onwards.
  • Determinator
  • Disability Superpower: He's suffering from an advanced stage of the Apocalypse Virus, which is what allows him to see Voids. Only Inori's blood helps stave off the crystallization and even that starts failing later on.
  • Foil: To Shu.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: With Shu.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Call Gai a garbage man because he knows how to take out the trash.
  • Gray Eyes
  • Heroic Sacrifice: It seems the only way to kill Gai is for him to let himself be killed. And even then, he doesn't always stay dead!
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Much like Shu, he expresses a lot of self-loathing during his inner monologues.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Turns out that Shu was the much stronger one out of both of them when they were children, and he was determined to one day become like Shu.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: In Episode 22, he admits that the reason why he chooses to be with Mana is because he was afraid of being "selected out."
  • Ill Boy: Hinted in Episode 5 through him briefly looking unwell in the beginning of the episode (which is noticed by Shinbugi) and later when Inori gives him a blood transfusion (and it's indicated that this routine happens two to three times a month). Episode 9 hints that he had the Apocalypse Virus (as this is why he can see Voids) and is reinfected by it in Episode 10 and Episode 11.
  • Improbable Age
  • I Will Find You: His goal to reach Mana, which he eventually manages to succeed in doing right before they end up Together in Death.
  • Jerkass: While he is a charming leader to his followers, he can be an ass if things don't go according to his plans or if his followers don't obey his orders. Watch how he scolds Inori for not giving him the Void Genome but to Shu instead despite the fact that it wasn't her fault and it was out of her control. He also ordered Inori to pretty much lead Shu on to get him to join Funeral Parlor, only for her to "dump" him once he agreed.
  • Jerkass Façade: In a moment of apparent weakness, he claims to care very deeply about his men and feels deeply torn about the fact that so many of them have died because of him. However, because he feels that he cannot appear weak, the only person that he allows to see this side of him is Inori, who later allows Shu to see it when he threatens to withdraw from the Leucocyte mission. Given the suspiciously convenient timing of this revelation, though, and his known talent for manipulation, it remains to be seen just how honest he was being about this.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Love Martyr: Even after the Apocalypse Virus destroys Mana's sanity, she threatens and nearly kills him, and the virus results in her triggering Lost Christmas, he continues to try and save Mana and eventually succeeds in reaching her in the end.
  • Made of Iron: Gai takes a stupid amount of punishment throughout the series.
    • When he was 7, he was shot, then had a building collapse on him, only to stand up a few minutes later saying "I have to get stronger."
  • Manipulative Bastard: Par excellence. Being able to see people's Voids, and thus the shape of their souls, helps a lot.
  • Meaningful Name: Mana called him "Triton" because he came from the sea. Notably, this also ends up being the last thing Mana says to him.
  • Mentor Archetype: To Shu.
  • Missed the Call: He was originally supposed to use the Void Genome, but Inori allowed Shu to use it instead.
  • Mundane Utility: Along with its unique abilities, his Void also serves as a pretty decent assault rifle against non-human targets.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: After being revived.
  • The Power of Acting: He can effortlessly slip into the role of a charming, flamboyant Cloudcuckoolander.
  • Rasputinian Death
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: After he's revived, he delivers this speech to Shu.
    Gai: King? Have you forgotten? You were just an usurper. The king has always been me.
  • Rebel Leader
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Shu's Red Oni.
  • Rescue Romance: His feelings for Mana likely stem from the fact that she was the one who "brought him back to life" (via CPR).
  • The Rival: Is described as Shu's rival in his character bio. Episode 5 indicates this in more ways than one.
  • Sacrificial Lion
  • Shirtless Scene: In Episode 5 and in Episode 16 when he's revealed to be Back from the Dead.
  • Silent Scapegoat: After being revived, he joins GHQ as part of a Batman Gambit that would require Shu to overcome everything he and GHQ throw at him so that he may finally put Gai and Mana to rest once and for all, because if Gai had taken a simpler solution and not worked with Daath and Keido, Daath would have revived Mana once more and started things all over again.
  • The Spock: He hides his emotions behind a cool facade and always makes the "logical" choices regarding tactics. Unlike Shu, who also displays this trope, it's a successful concerted act rather than an awkward learned impulse.
  • Super Empowering: His Void.
  • Taking the Bullet: Does this for Shu in Episode 11.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Shu and Mana.
  • Together in Death: With Mana. Twice.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Episode 12 reveals that he's the one who really took a level in badass. Who would've thought that he used to be that kid who almost fell off a bridge?
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: As his revived self.
  • Tragic Keepsake: The cross necklace that he carries which belonged to Mana.
  • Tsurime Eyes
  • Walking Spoiler: The majority of his spoilered entries lead to his revived self after Episode 17.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: His revived self.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Seemingly implied to be his inner conflict of being the new "Adam" in Episode 21 is the fact that he will never be able to die.
  • Why Did You Make Me Hit You?: His innovative approach to international politics.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: An expert player, able to reformulate his plans and factor in new obstacles at a moment's notice. Episode 5 demonstrates that it's partly due to simply being Crazy-Prepared; for the upcoming operation, for example, he prepares 145 different alternative strategies should any problem present itself.
  • You Monster!: Inori is called by revived!Gai, along with Arisa in Episode 18.
  • Younger Than He Looks: He's the same age as, if not slightly younger than, Shu, but stick them right together, and he looks like he's got easily a few years, if not a decade, on Shu.

  • Big Good: He's ultimately revealed to be Funeral Parlor's largest backer in its struggle against GHQ. Later, he is implied to be one of the leaders of a powerful network of elites organized to combat Da'ath, the series' Big Bad.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: They're clearly his weapon of choice if Episode 18 is any indication.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Let's Get Dangerous: After his granddaughter dishonors the family, he resolves to put her down.
  • The Team Benefactor: Kuhouin does not publicly reveal his alliance with Funeral Parlor, but he meets the rest of the criteria.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works

Hare Menjou

Voiced by: Yu Shimamura (Japanese), Tia Ballard (English)

Shu's classmate. She has feelings for Shu. She is killed in Episode 15.

Her Void is a long white bandage that can heal anything.

Souta Tamadate

Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi (Japanese), Corey Cleary-Stoner (English)

Shu's classmate and a member of the motion picture research club. A big fan of Inori.

His Void is a strange camera that can open anything it photographs.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: He nearly confesses to Inori in Episode 8 when Shu drops in to extract his Void.
  • Art Evolution: After crossing the Despair Event Horizon mentioned below, he visually appears much older, even though his character design is unchanged.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crossed it after Hare's death and the Void Ranking System. Every appearance since has had him as an empty shuddering shell of the person he used to be.
  • The Dog Bites Back: The moment Hare died and Shu turned Fallen Hero, life has been hell for Souta. Come Episode 17...
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Towards Inori.
  • Fanboy: Of Egoist and Inori.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Souta is flawed, he can be obnoxious and reckless, but the gang seems to keep him around because he has good intentions.
  • Hopeless Suitor
  • Hypocrite: Says he accepts responsibility for Hare's death, then gets upset when Shu actually blames him for it. Mostly because of OOC Is Serious Business; in the past Shu would have made a justification to make Souta feel better.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Towards Inori.
  • Keet: Has shades of this.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: While Shu and the others try to plan how to get into a hospital to get vaccine, he and the other "F"-ranked students rush there first in order to prove that their Voids are useful. It's deconstructed since doing so led to Hare's death.
  • Master of Unlocking
  • Mundane Utility: Shu can use his Void to great effectiveness, but Souta can only use it to open cans of food.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He blames himself for Hare's death, as he was the one who told her to heal the car that exploded when Daryl attacked them in the first place. Shu agrees with him and proceeds to punch him repeatedly.
  • My Greatest Failure: Causing Hare's death.
  • Nice Guy: Unlike Yahiro, it's genuine. Even though his plans often end in disaster, the kid hasn't got a malicious bone in his body.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero:
    • In Episode 13, his idea to cheer up the other students by hosting a fair, while admittedly a good one, is what pushes a group of disgruntled refugees to attack the school.
    • In Episode 15, the "F"-ranked students and he attempt to retrieve vaccines at a hospital to prove their Voids are useful to Shu. Shu and Hare pursue them, and they all end up getting surrounded by Anti Bodies. The end result is Hare getting killed.
  • Not So Different: With Shu. Both of them have problems understanding people, but while Shu became withdrawn and stoic, he became loud and overbearing.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Yahiro's Blue Oni.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: His plans would work in some universes. This one just ends up with Hare getting killed.

Yahiro Samukawa

"I'm not going to apologize. This is an absurd, unfair world."

Voiced by: Takahiro Mizushima (Japanese), David Trosko (English)

Shu's classmate and a member of the motion picture research club.

His Void is an odd pair of shears with the power to end life.
  • Anti-Hero
  • Beneath the Mask
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Big Brother Instinct: Subverted in that his Void reflects his inward resentment, as he secretly views his brother as a burden.
  • Bishounen
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Just when you think Shu and he have solved their issues and made up... he sells Shu out to the GHQ.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Face Heel Revolving Door
  • Hidden Depths
  • Jerkass
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: He's willing to sell out Shu and sell the Norma Gene drug to support his virus-infected younger brother.
  • Man Behind the Man: He is the driving force behind Shu's plans. Shu calls him out on this later. Yahiro denies it (or rather, attempts to justify it), as he claims to genuinely value Shu and wants to save people. Shu doesn't believe him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: His Void ranking system idea, though logical due to their shortage of supplies and need to properly defend themselves, ends up provoking those ranked useless to prove themselves, the Anti Bodies attack them when they attempt this, and Hare is killed in the crossfire.
  • One-Hit Kill: Those pliers of his basically give their wielder the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, allowing them to kill anything with a single blow if they aim it properly.
  • Plague Master: His Void blows that don't score a One-Hit Kill, meanwhile, will infect anything they hit with the Apocalypse Virus, so you're pretty much out of luck either way. Yes, this includes machines like Endlaves.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Souta's Red Oni.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Very pointedly failed to lift a finger during Arisa's coup, instead concentrating on helping with the evacuation effort.
  • Ship Tease: Episode 13 implies that he reciprocates Kanon's feelings. Either that, or he was just being nice. Very, very nice.
  • The Spock: Brings a harsh dose of reality to the school after the lockdown goes into effect. Even since then, his emotions seem to be completely under his control; the one time he has displayed overt emotion since was a calculated gesture to get Shu elected Student Council President.
  • Stepford Smiler
  • The Stool Pigeon: Of the Betrayer Barry variety. He ends up selling out Shu to secure treatment for his sick little brother. Especially jarring since Shu was under the impression that they had sucessfully talked over their differences.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His days selling Norma Gene to pay for his brother's treatments, and likewise, the Void Ranking system. He knows there aren't enough resources to save everyone, thus the Void ranking system.

Arisa Kuhouin

Voiced by: Aya Endo (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)

The student council president.

Her Void is a sphere-shaped shield that can separate and eliminate attacks.
  • Arranged Marriage: In Episode 16, her grandfather planned to give her to the leader of the Ming Hua Group as a wife in exchange for his help determining the future of Japan, and Argo is sent to retrieve her. The plan falls apart, though.
  • Ascended Extra: Appeared in all of a single episode on her own before joining with the rest of Shu's friends in his rush to save Inori.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: After Inori's attack on her (and her own belief that it was out punishment for trying to go against Shu), she decides to create a coup d'etat with the student body against Shu and succeeds.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing
  • Blondes are Evil
  • Break the Cutie: Getting attacked by Inori really did a number on her.
  • Broken Bird: Is completely delusional after the events of Episode 16.
  • Brown Eyes
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She does not like Inori because of her closeness to Gai.
  • Deflector Shields: Her Void.
  • Disney Death: It appeared as though she was killed off by Inori in Episode 16, but Episode 17 reveals that she's still alive and merely had her hand injured. She is shot in Episode 22 and is seemingly dead until she is shown with Da'at members, still alive but wounded.
  • Enemy Mine: She tentatively teams up with Shu in Episode 19 to look for Haruka.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Turns the school against Shu before joining Gai.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Beautiful, a prestigious Ojou and very rightful. Eventually subverted after her Face-Heel Turn.
  • Imaginary Love Triangle: She has deluded herself into thinking that she's competing with Inori for Gai.
  • Manipulative Bitch
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Although never outright stated, it's very clear that she wishes to kill Inori after finding out that Gai seems to need her more. Were it not for being surrounded by many people who would most definitely have objected, and the fact that Inori is Beware the Quiet Ones brought Up to Eleven, she likely would have not succeeded.
  • Ojou
  • Sex for Services: At her lowest, a desperate Arisa sleeps with Nanba to ensure the success of her plot against Shu's tyranny.
  • Ship Tease: She seems to develop a small crush on Gai after meeting him, but nothing ever comes of it. When Gai returns, she views him as a savior and is jealous of Inori.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She comes from a wealthy and influential family, but she is a just person and defends Shu when he returns to school from rumors of his arrest by the GHQ.
  • Stepford Smiler: Shows signs of this. Naturally, her Void ends up being Deflector Shields.
  • Stone Wall: Easily holds off several men armed with full auto machine guns for several minutes.
  • Student Council President: Formerly. Due to her inability to appease the student body after the Lockdown, they decide to elect a new student council president—Shu.
  • Subordinate Excuse: She only joins the Da'at to be close to Gai.
  • Yandere: Post-Face-Heel Turn, she becomes this to Gai. She desires to be useful to Gai, is jealous of Inori due to her relationship with Gai, and wants to know everything about him.
  • You Monster!: Inori is called by Arisa, along with revived!Gai in Episode 18.
  • Zettai Ryouiki

Shuichiro Keido

"Destiny can't be changed."

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue (Japanese), Charlie Campbell (English)

The head of the GHQ Anti Bodies and the archnemesis of Funeral Parlor.

Daryl Yan

"I'll do as I please, got it? And if you get in my way... I'll tell Papa on you."

Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama (Japanese), Joel McDonald (English)

A juvenile officer with the rank of Lieutenant, Daryl is GHQ Endlave pilot and the son Major General Yan, the Commander-in-Chief of the GHQ forces.

His Void is the Kaleidoscope, a gun that shoots beehive barriers.
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: His attachment to Tsugumi comes from how she (in her own way) treated him with kindness and gave him a candied apple as an award for (reluctantly) helping her. Judging from his background, she might be the first person who treated him kindly.
  • Beehive Barrier: His Void.
  • Bishounen
  • Blond Guys Are Evil
  • Blood Knight
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Episode 22.
  • Character Development: First depicted as an unstable, Axe Crazy Military Brat that could very easily go into a murderous rampage. Later on he shows a degree of honor and determination. By Episode 22, he has been rendered even more mentally unstable and wants to return to his old ways, convincing himself that killing Tsugumi and Funeral Parlor is the only way to revert to "Kill 'em All Daryl." After that, his development status is unknown, although he seems to have snapped from the frenzy.
  • Clark Kenting: More justifiable than most. As an Endlave pilot (even if an unusually notorious one), not many people would know his face anyway.
  • Combat Aestheticist: Considers killing from a distance to be "unartistic," which is why he likes to be close to the frontlines even when he's remote-controlling his Endlave.
  • Daddy Issues: It's hard not to feel a little bad for the guy after seeing his father's attitude towards him, and watching him struggle through enduring his neglect.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: In Episode 15, he realises that Hare using her Void to repare a car is probably not a good thing for him, so he shoots and blows the car.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Declaration of Protection: In Episode 18, he reluctantly decides to protect Tsugumi and attacks the other Ghost Units because one of them threatens Tsugumi and provides a diversion long enough for Funeral Parlor to escape.
  • Deflector Shields: His Void.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Doesn't like Keido's "purify those outside the red line" policy. Though, it should be noted that this is for artistic, not ethical, reasons. It's just way too mechanical for his tastes.
    • He refuses to protect a revived Gai Tsutsugami, though this is mainly due to still feeling that Gai is the enemy, Tsugumi getting threatened indirectly because of Gai, and him blaming Gai for having to kill his father.
  • Expy: A reckless blond-haired pilot who gets frustrated with the protagonists, so much that he joins them in the end? Sounds like he needs some Spiral Power.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: In his first few appearances. Since coming under Segai's command, he appears to have been put on a tighter leash, resulting in less of his trademark psychotic outbursts and more snarking from the sidelines.
  • Hates Being Touched: He mentions a fear of infection at one point, but since he's just as leery about physical contact with clearly uninfected people, that seems to merely be one of many excuses.
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: As of Episode 21 and Episode 22.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • In-Series Nickname: "Kill 'em All Daryl."
  • Insult of Endearment: He calls Tsugumi "runt". When Daryl, piloting his Endlave, calls her this nickname as he defends Funeral Parlor and her from the Ghost Units, it tips her off on who he is.
  • Jerkass
  • Kick the Dog: Is a constant offender of this, from beating (and killing) a civilian woman for touching him in Episode 2 to attempting to kill Tsugumi and Funeral Parlor in Episode 22.
  • Kick the Morality Pet
  • Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe: His father says he isn't sure Daryl is his son because his mother was "a no-good woman".
  • Man in White
  • Military Brat: His father is the Commander-in-Chief of the GHQ. However, it's hinted at in Episode 8 that he might not even be his father's child at all. At least, this is what his father thinks.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He has a small moment in Episode 22 when Rowan rescuing him leads to the former's death.
  • The Nicknamer: He calls Shu a "faceless bastard" because he can't see the later's face on his Endlave monitor until Episode 11. He later calls Tsugumi a "runt," which seems to be doubling as an Affectionate Nickname.
  • Odd Name Out: His is the only Void to have a name, which is probably a codename given to it by Gai.
  • Pet the Dog: His Ship Tease with Tsugumi causes him to not attack Funeral Parlor in Episode 14, feel concerned for her well-being in Episode 15, and outright defend her and betray the Ghost Units in Episode 18.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: At the beginning of the series at least. While he's calmed down a bit since then, he still shows traces of his trademark bloodlust as evidenced in Episode 22 when he attempts to destroy Funeral Parlor.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Redemption Failure: His Heel-Face Turn in protecting Tsugumi and allowing Funeral Parlor to escape the Ghost Units in Episode 18 results in his imprisonment and having his Void taken, replaced with an experimental device to serve as a replacement. Due to these events, he loses his head and becomes convinced that it is Tsugumi's fault that he isn't his "Kill 'em All Daryl" self anymore, and decides that getting rid of her would change him back to the way he was. At the end, he seems to have regained again his conscience, specially after seeing Rowan die for him.
  • Self-Made Orphan: As of Episode 11. Justified in a good measure.
  • Ship Tease: With Tsugumi. But apparently he Did Not Get the Girl.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Terrified of Germs: May just be an excuse for an underlying discomfort. See the Hates Being Touched entry above.
  • Tsundere: Type A. He shows shades of this towards Tsugumi.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It is ambiguous on whether he survived or not in the last episode, although presumably does.
  • The Worf Effect: He is one-shotted every single time he faces Shu.

A GHQ Anti Bodies Intel officer.

Dan Eagleman

Voiced by: Tsuguo Mogami (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

An American colonel working for the GHQ.
  • Affably Evil: Unlike Segai and Daryl, he's a very nice guy and treats his subordinates like a football coach and genuinely believes that the GHQ are helping Japan.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Catch Phrase: "Guts!"
  • Eaglelander: Type 2. Seemingly naive and a bit racist, he employs a ridiculous (if only unsuccessful due to Arisa's Void) strategy to obliterate a private yacht to kill the handful of Funeral Parlor members and allies that are on the ship, hundreds of innocents (and a few GHQ members, at that) be damned.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After rescuing Haruka from Segai, Segai kills him.
  • Large Ham
  • Laughably Evil: Probably the least serious character, and certainly the least serious villain, in the entire series.
  • Macross Missile Massacre/More Dakka
  • The Nicknamer: In fact, it's something of a surprise whenever he remembers a subordinate's real name.
  • Twinkle Smile: Complete with Audible Gleam

  • Disability Superpower: Like Gai, his advanced stage of the Apocalypse Virus allows him to see one's Void and their hidden personality.

  • Dying as Yourself

    Lost Christmas OVA/Game 


Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (Japanese)

The protagonist of Guilty Crown: Lost Christmas, he was a subject of Da'ath's human experiments until he escaped from its facility with Carol. His right arm has a functionally defective form of 'King's Power'. Unlike Shu, he is unable to pull out voids from anyone but Carol because as soon as his hand touches others' body, they would start to undergo crystallization due to invasion by apocalypse virus. He suffers from amnesia as a result of Da'ath's experiments, and throughout the story he seeks information about Da'ath all the while making his escape, in order to rediscover his identity. He has a cool, cruel personality that licenses him to kill, and is vengeful against Da'ath.


Voiced by: Kana Asumi (Japanese)

Scrooge's main partner who accompanies him in his escape. She is also an experimental subject of Da'ath, but it is unclear what kind of experiments she was subjected to. Despite Scrooge's crystallizing power, she is somehow able to accept his right hand, and thus from her Scrooge can pull out voids which could be used as weapons. However, much unlike the characters from the anime Guilty Crown, her voids seem to take various forms and are much more fragile, and their damage doesn't lead to her death. She has a spontaneous personality, yet she is sharp and seems to carry ulterior motives behind her escape.


Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi (Japanese)

One of the members of the Christmas ghosts, a trio of assassins sent after Scrooge and Carol. He/she talks using the masculine pronoun "boku" but his/her gender is unknown. Also an experiment subject of Da'ath, he/she holds a mysterious ability to physically control the movement of the apocalypse crystal, a strong power he/she relies on to combat against Scrooge and Carol.


Voiced by: Ayahi Takagaki

One of the members of Christmas ghosts. Her voice is reminiscent of a small girl, but her true identity is unknown. She controls various kinds of Endlaves from a remote cockpit, and her powers are astronomically stronger than a typical Endlave user. Though the Endlaves that she controls are none but primitive in design, their abilities far surpass those of later models.

Yet To Come

One of the members of Christmas ghosts. His/her identity is unknown.
