Characters / Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls

Character sheet for Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls. Spoilers ahead, proceed with caution.

Yagyuu Muneakira
Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa (Japanese), David Matranga (English)

  • Badass Pacifist: He finally gets himself free from the chains that bound him whenever the other Jubei comes out and stops the attacks coming from Jubei and Nia. Then he bows down to Yoshihiko so that they can stop fighting already.
  • Blessed with Suck: Let's take a look at this from another perspective. He kisses one of the girls, and she gets powered up. Unfortunately, Muneakira gets to be chained with an invisible force to the point he can't even fight. Now, if an enemy is Genre Savvy, then they'd gun for Muneakira already with no guard or whatsoever. This doesn't seem to apply to Sen and Yukimura - only "Dark" Jubei provokes the vulnerable mode so far.
    • It's revealed towards the end that his ability as a general is still imperfect at the beginning of the series so his contracts are imperfect and carries major drawbacks, both in power output and the mentioned weakness. After Muneakira mastered the ability, he no longer suffers the weakness.
  • Butt-Monkey: Due to lots of accidental perversion and the fact that his Battle Harem gets really scary when mad. Though in his case, it may just be a matter of perspective.
  • Depower: By the end of episode 1 in season 2, Muneakira's General power is almost gone due to magic seal inflicted to him. It wasn't even that powerful to begin with, but now he can't even lift a sword. Thankfully it doesn't stop him from being able to make more Master Samurai...
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: He suffers from getting hit by the other girls quite a bit. Sometimes by accident, but largely due to jealousy when another girl makes a move on him, such as when Gisen first shows up, and tries to forcefully seduce him. Although he was completely innocent, as he's dragged away by both Sen and Yukimura, both girls hit him on the head a few times as they think about how he seems to be acting improperly around other girls.
  • Memetic Molester: Invoked: Kanetsugu sees him as this.
  • Nice Guy: When he's not being mistaken for a pervert anyway.
  • Non-Action Guy: Although he seems to have a reputation for being a badass, he's not seen doing much fighting. However, it could be justified because he's also a General, who by definition leads the troops, rather than actively takes part in the fighting. Still, one would think he'd show off his combat abilities a little more often, particularly as the girls like to fight over him sometimes.
  • The Strategist: He usually performs this role for the girls in combat, giving them guidance on what to do in the fight.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Muneakira takes several throughout the series.◦ In the second to last episode, he frees himself from the chains that bind him whenever Jubei appears.
    • During the last episode, along with everyone else, but Muneakira's transformation from a flustered everydude to a determined commander is especially striking.

  • Cat Girl: Although she's technically a monkey-girl, she has the physical characteristics of this trope in her master samurai form.

Tokugawa Yoshihiko
Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (Japanese), Leraldo Anzaldua (English)

  • Aloof Big Brother: Of Sen.
  • Demoted to Extra: For much of season 2. When he does have a brief appearance around episode 5, it's actually Sen masquerading as him in an attempt to cheat during a contest. He finally starts having more screentime around episode 9, but its still largely brief scenes.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In the end. He intends to amass Master Samurai to fight Amakusa, not for himself.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: A subversion, who turns out to be quite a decent guy after being introduced as a ruthless leader.

Charles "Nia" D'Artagnan
Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu (Japanese), Shannon Emerick (English)

  • BFS: Double.
  • Demoted to Extra: While she played an important part in the first season, during season 2, she's seen very briefly in the beginning of episode 1. Then she doesn't show up again until around episode 9 and even then, doesn't play a very big role.
  • Dual Wielding: Two claymores.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: While she does try to fight against some of his commands, such as killing off the other master samurai girls, when Yoshihiko is threatened, she puts her life on the line for him.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: From France.
  • Red Eyes! Take Warning
  • The Stoic
  • The Worf Effect: While she proved to be rather formidable foe in the first season, in the first episode of season 2, she, along with other master samurai Yoshihiko produced to combat Amakusa, gets handily defeated by the Dark Samurai. She's also easily defeated by Amakusa later in the season.

  • Blood Knight: Wants to fight Jubei in her regular form more than anything else.
  • Dual Wielding
