The Third Neck, he is one of the first Orochi to attack the miko. Girochi is said to be Miyako's younger brother.

The Fifth Neck. She is an antisocial manga artist of few words. Reiko continues her "day job" as a member of the Orochi and has in fact done better on the market since joining, though her manga have taken on very dark themes since then, in fact, the reason why she joined Orochi was because the type of stories she originally liked didn't sell much, making her unable to make profit and reach for her dreams in the first place. Her mecha is Ho no Shuraizuchi.


Voiced by: Ai Nonaka (JP), Sandy Fox (EN)

The Sixth Neck. She is a small Cat Girl who is often seen wearing a nurse's outfit and wielding a giant syringe. It is later revealed that she was the subject and victim of horrible medical experiments, which is most likely what made her an Orochi follower. Her mecha is Izuhara no Tamazuchi, nicknamed Meow Meow (Nya Nya).

Souma Ogami

Voiced by: Junji Majima (JP), Steve Staley (EN)

Himeko's childhood friend who is as popular at school as Chikane, which is why most of their fellow students believe he and Chikane are dating.

Like Chikane, he is in love with Himeko and is extremely protective of her. His mecha is Take no Yamikazuchi.
