Characters from ''{{Kuragehime}}''.



[[folder: The Amars/The Nuns]]
The inhabitants of "Nunnery" who are {{Otaku}} in some way or another. Their apartment is owned by Chieko's mother, who has gone abroad to follow her fangirl crush. Although Chieko is the manager, Mejiro-sensei the resident {{Mangaka}} enforces a strict "No Men" rule and employs the other inhabitants as assistants.

Tropes applying to all of the "Nuns" are:
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: In the presence of their respective obsessions they can't focus on anything else.
* BeautifulAllAlong: They all eventually get makeovers.
%%* BigEater
* ChristmasCake: Most of them are over thirty, with the exception of Tsukimi.
* DeerInTheHeadlights[=/=]TakenForGranite: Parodied; they turn to stone when confronted by men and/or stylish people.
* DoesNotLikeMen: More like ''scared stiff'' by men.
%%* [[FiveManBand Five Woman Band]]
* FoodAsBribe: Kuranosuke has made use of this in the past, such as when he takes Banba and some of the others for meat.
* {{Gonk}}: None of them are conventionally attractive. This is a rare example where the gonks are the main characters (though Tsukimi, the protagonist, is more plain than gonkish).
* LimitedWardrobe: They are always seen wearing the same outfits in contrast to Kuranosuke's UnlimitedWardrobe.
* LovableNerd: They are portrayed sympathetically, though the narration doesn't completely gloss over the fact, that they are childish freeloaders.
* {{NEET}}: Though referring to them as as such is a major BerserkButton.
* NerdsAreVirgins: Strongly implied. It's the number one thing that shouldn't be mentioned in the Nunnery.
* NerdGlasses: Tsukimi, Chieko, and Jiji wear glasses.
* NoSocialSkills: They can't ''move'' in the proximity of anyone "stylish".
* {{Otaku}}: Each of them have something they're obsessed with in a rather nerdy way.
* SeriousBusiness: They all take their hobbies ''very'' seriously.
* StarvingArtist: As Mejiro-sensei's unofficial assistants by inking the pages of her manga.

[[WMG: Tsukimi Kurashita]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KanaHanazawa (JP), Creator/MaxeyWhitehead (EN)

An 18-year-old illustrator who has been obsessed with jellyfish since she was a child. She is the youngest resident.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Archie for Kuranosuke's Veronica and Shu's Betty and the Betty to Inari's Veronica for Shu's Archie.
* BlindWithoutEm: Without her glasses she can barely see a few feet in front of her, and everything past that gets blurry.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: Passes out after a single glass of "sweet sake," which has little to no alcohol.
* ClarkKenting: Towards Shu, who doesn't realize she's the same person, in combination with BeautifulAllAlong.
* CuteClumsyGirl: When exposed to the outside world, she often just can't function.
* DitzyGenius: She's a walking jellyfish encyclopedia; not so much with other stuff.
%%* FragileFlower: But she's growing out of this.
* GirlishPigtails: Her default hairstyle, compatibile with her youth and naiveté.
* HeroicBSOD: Happens to her on a regular basis, with its triggers including, but not limited to: finding out that Kuranosuke is a boy, hearing him tell her that he wanted to see her again, being hugged by Shu in the aquarium, and having Kuranosuke walk in on her when she pretends to dress up in a lacy jellyfish dress.
** A more memorable example is after seeing Shu walking with Inori. She walks back home in the rain and locks herself in her room and cries. Another happens after seeing the photo of Inori and Shu after their "night" together. She struggles to get to sleep without thinking about the picture and results to drinking sake to forget it.
* KimonoFanservice: Her attempts to get out of one go embarrassingly wrong.
* LetsGetDangerous: She manages to push her social phobias aside long enough to demand that a single jellyfish be moved to a safer tank. Don't get in her way when she's making a jellyfish dress, either.
* MeaningfulName: The kanji for Tsukimi (月海) reversed can be read as "kurage" (海月), or "jellyfish".
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses and is very introverted.
* MessyHair: Her hair looks messy most of the time.
* MissingMom: One of the few tropes she has in common with Kuranosuke.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Her reaction to being hugged by a man.
* NotGoodWithPeople: She tends to prefer the company of jellyfish.
* ObliviousToLove: Tsukimi is beyond oblivious: she's so convinced that no one could ever be attracted to her that she goes out of her way to misinterpret even the most straightforward indications of love [[spoiler: such as Shuu saying "I like you" or President Kai's kiss]].
%%* RavenHairIvorySkin: Especially in "After" mode.
* SecretKeeper: She's the only Nun who knows Kuranosuke is really male. Naturally, things get awkward.
%%* SheCleansUpNicely
%%* ShrinkingViolet
* StarvingArtist: She wants to be an illustrator and has quite a lot of talent. Kuranosuke helps her out by selling her creations.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Flashbacks show that Tsukimi looks like her mom.
* TalkingToTheDead: Narrates through voiceovers with her late mother.
%%* TenderTears
%%* [[UnluckyEverydude Unlucky Everygirl]]
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Tsukimi is [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kuragehime/v01/c006/32.html almost exactly how the author was as a young girl]], jellyfish obsession and all, but aged up for extra pathos.
* YouthfulFreckles: Though she is 18 years old, she's probably the youngest of the entire main cast.

[[WMG: Chieko]]
->Voiced by: Kimiko Saito (JP), Cynthia Cranz (EN)

The daughter of the owner of the Nunnery. She is obsessed with traditional Japanese dolls and kimono.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT threaten to sell her dolls, or mess with the settings on her sewing machine. Even if, in both cases, it's part of a plot by Kuranosuke to keep the Nuns from getting evicted.
%%* BrownEyes
* FatGirl: She's not a girl anymore, so it's less glaring, but she once mentions herself being chubby and it's implied it's a complex of her and one possible cause of her reclusion.
* KimonoIsTraditional: Only ever wears kimono. She comments at length on how much easier kimono is to sew compared to Western clothing, since it only uses straight lines in sewing and is not form-fitting.
* {{Landlady}}: It's actually her mother who's the landlady, but since she left to follow her fangirl crush to Korea, Chieko fills this role while she's away.
%%* LonelyDollGirl
%%* NerdGlasses
* OnlySaneWoman: Of the Nuns, she seems to have the most real-world sense.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Averted, and the only member of the group Kuranosuke doesn't apply this to. It's explained that she doesn't ''need'' to, as the other members of the group looking fancier in turn makes her look fancier since she already wears kimono constantly.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: She has an uncanny resemblance to her mother, Chiyoko. Kuranosuke and Tsukimi even mistake them for twins.
* TeamMom: She is the acting landlady, has the most social skills of the Amars and generally is the person most often being the adult of the house.

[[WMG: Mayaya]]
->Voiced by: Creator/AkemiOkamura (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)

Mayaya's obsession is RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: In this case, "Big Girl, Little Girl" and she is this with Banba, as Mayaya is very tall, and Banba is comically small.
* BlindingBangs: It turns out that she has her bangs like this on purpose, [[spoiler:since they hide her sinister-looking eyes, which she's self-conscious of]].
%%* BoisterousBruiser
* [[spoiler:EvilEyebrows]]: Shows one such looking pair after her face is shown. [[spoiler:Totally [[FaceOfAThug non-indicative]], though.]]
* CharacterTics: Spasmodic karate-ing, as well as exclaiming [[VerbalTic "Nuwoo!"]] when excited.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Her response to a {{Moe}} version of RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms: "DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS!!"
* GenkiGirl: Mayaya is very enthusiastic whenever she speaks.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: [[spoiler:She's not evil, bu her having narrow, sinister-looking eyes was -- [[HugeSchoolgirl among other things]] -- why she was called 'Contract Killer' in school. Until she started combing her hair in front of them, [[ChildrenAreCruel which was when she was nicknamed 'Bamboo Broom']].]]
* HotBlooded: Complete with NoIndoorVoice and very over-the-top dialogue.
* HugeSchoolgirl: She was tall for her age back in school.
%%* KickChick
* LargeHam: Reacts to the smallest crises in the Nuns' house with loud cries of "EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!"
* SheCleansUpNicely: She can pass as a ''model'' when she is dressed up (though she still has to be silent and refrain from her usual manner of moving to do so).
* StatuesqueStunner: In "After" mode. So much that she gets to be a model in the manga, and even Hanamori, who's usually more obsessed with cars than girls, offers her his services at a first glance.
* ThoseTwoGirls: With Banba, with whom she spends most of the time.
* TomboyishPonytail: Her default hairstyle, and the only thing visually indicating that she is a woman.
* WomanChild: She is one of the most childish residents of Amamizukan, complaining she has to work and often acting as TheLoad.

[[WMG: Banba]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MotokoKumai (JP), Mariela Ortiz (EN)

A train {{Otaku}} with a large afro.
* BerserkButton: It's better not to add noodles to the meat in Banba's presence.
* [[BigGuyLittleGuy Big Girl, Little Girl]]: With Mayaya, who is very tall, while Banba is exceptionally small.
* BlindingBangs: Her hair covers her face.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* CompressedHair: In "After" mode. "Afro . . . SEALED!"
* EmotionlessGirl: She has a very stoic demeanor.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: "Don't put shiratake noodles next to the meat! Unless you want it to be hard as a ''rock''!"
* FunnyAfro: Kuranosuke eventually gives up on trying to style it and hides its massive weight under a short blonde wig. However, it's surprisingly popular with the Stylish (they ask to touch it) and it's what ultimately inspires a model in Yokohama to accept the girls' jellyfish dresses at a fashion show.
* LadyLooksLikeADude: Much of her face is covered, so it's difficult to tell what her gender is.
* LeapDay: Her birthday is February 29th.
* LittleMissSnarker: Subverted due to her age, but she certainly looks the part. And technically speaking, she is both little and a miss.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She claims to be 8 since she was born on a leap year. She is also the smallest in the group.
* OreOnna: She uses the masculine, informal pronoun "ore".
* RailEnthusiast: She has an extensive set of model trains, has subway posters on her wall and draws trains in doodles even when irrelevant to the subject at hand.
--> ''(when going with Mayaya to Yokohama)'' The Minatomirai Line will be MINE!
* StatOVision: Parodied with her "Meat Scope", an ability to scope out high-quality meat.
%%* ThoseTwoGirls: With Mayaya.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: She ''really'' likes meat, to the point that she calls Kuranosuke "Meat" and pesters him for meat whenever she sees him.
* WomanChild: Along with Mayaya, she is one of the most childish residents of Amamizukan, complaining she has to work and often acting as TheLoad.

[[WMG: Jiji]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MamikoNoto (JP), Creator/LeahClark (EN)

Jiji is one of the Amars who is obsessed with mature, old men.
%%* BlindingBangs
* BrainyBrunette: She is one of the few nuns exhibiting useful work skills.
* TheChick: She starts out as this, mostly hiding in the shadows, but becomes more of [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]] later on by [[KickedUpstairs taking on the role]] of Product Manager.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When the neighbors of the Nuns' house are evicted, instead of worrying how soon the same fate may come to them, she bemoans the fact that she no longer has an attractive old man, who had been "maturing so beautifully" in her neighborhood.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: She has pale skin and dark hair, and comes across as a bit creepier than the others due to her quiet voice and fixation on much older men.
%%* OpaqueLenses: Her glasses.
%%* PeekABangs
* TheQuietOne: She barely talks.
%%* SheCleansUpNicely
* ShrinkingViolet: She is the most shy member of the Amars, even without the presence of the "stylish" people.

[[WMG: Juon Mejiro]]

The rarely seen mangaka of {{Yaoi}} who advises and regulates the other residents.

* {{Hikikomori}}: She hardly ever leaves her room, to the point that she's never seen onscreen and communicates with the others by passing written messages under her door.
%%* [[{{HeWhoMustNotBeSeen}} She Who Must Not Be Seen]]
* TheGhost: Never once comes out of her room during the entire anime series, communicating only in writing through the crack below her door.
* ReclusiveArtist: An InUniverse example, to the point that [[TheGhost we never actually see her]]. Perhaps it is this reclusiveness that allows her to, having not argued about it at length, [[spoiler: design the final logo for the jellyfish dresses.]]
* YaoiFangirl: She draws BoysLove manga for a living, so naturally she'd be this.

[[folder: Koibuchi Family]]
[[WMG: Kuranosuke Koibuchi]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MitsukiSaiga (JP), Creator/JoshGrelle (EN)

A college student who enjoys cross-dressing. He fears being pushed into politics by his family, as he considers his true calling to be the fashion world.
* AgentPeacock: Kuranosuke is a slightly more realistic than usual version. He saves the jellyfish for Tsukimi and other awesome stuff.
* AlliterativeName: Kuranosuke Koibuchi
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To his older brother Shu, always stirring some problems and refusing to be TheDutifulSon.
* AttractiveBentGender: Other women comments on how attractive Kuranosuke is, not realizing that he's a man.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Shu's Betty for Tsukimi's Archie. He is the flashy, eccentric and outgoing one.
* {{Bishonen}}: Logically, to pass as a pretty girl, one must be a pretty boy first.
* BlackSheep: He's the only person in his family who has no desire to go into politics. Instead, he wants a career in fashion.
* BlitheSpirit: He certainly brings life both in his serious household and to reclused lives of the Amars.
%%* [[spoiler:ButNotTooForeign]]
* CampStraight: Cross-dresses, dreams of entering the fashion world, all his friends are girls...and yet, he really is straight!
* ChickMagnet: Discusses the fact that he has no difficulty attracting the hottest and most popular girls [[spoiler: so he's surprised to find himself falling for Tsukimi]].
* CrazyJealousGuy: He briefly turns into one when he sees Shu hugging Tsukimi.
* {{Determinator}}: He's not one to give up, even when everyone else is.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Enough that, when [[spoiler:the Nunz discover his breasts are fake]], they instead jump to the conclusion that he's a very flat-chested girl wearing inserts out of insecurity.
%%* EvenTheGuysWantHim
* {{Expy}}: a flamboyant blonde kid who is the illegitimate son of an extremely rich and powerful individual in Japan and was ripped away from his European mother at a young age. He marvels the poor and nerdy main character with his sense of money, benevolently manipulates her for his own purposes, and eventually falls in love with her. [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Why does this sound familiar?]]
* FakeBoobs: When Kuranosuke passes out in the lobby of their apartment building, Mayaya attempts to help by applying Vicks Vapo-Rub to "her" chest, and in the process discovers that Kuranosuke's breasts are fake. Mayaya and the other members of the Sisterhood present completely miss the obvious and instead accuse Kuranosuke of padding "her" bra to hide her ACupAngst.
* TheFashionista: He is always seen wearing stylish clothing.
%%* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish one.
* GenderVocabularySlip: Slips into the ''ore'' pronoun, but since he's so good at cross-dressing, he still passes as a {{bokukko}} (with a bit of help from Tsukimi).
%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* HeroicBastard: He is the son of Mr. Koibuchi and his lover.
* HiddenDepths: One of the reasons Kuranosuke cross-dresses, revealed late in the series, [[spoiler: is a desire to connect with his absent mother, who often gave him pretty things and showed off her dresses to him; not to mention a half-subconscious belief that, if he had been born a girl instead of a potential heir, his mother might not have left/been separated from him. The series leaves the exact nature of her departure unexplained.]]
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Has an unfortunate habit of touching off the Nuns' {{Berserk Button}}s, such as asking if they're virgins or employed.
* LadykillerInLove: After dating many conventionally hot girls, he falls for Tsukimi, though he's in denial and she's rather clueless.
* LarynxDissonance: Voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, albeit one famed for being able to sound entirely male. Averted in the dub for the most part, though [[AlexisTipton played straight]] when he's younger.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Son]]: He dresses like his mother in order to feel closer to her.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Kuranosuke may be a fashion obsessed cross-dresser, but he makes clear that he's popular among the ladies and has had a lot of girlfriends in the past. Also, not being a virgin [[NatureAbhorsAVirgin is one of the things which separate him from the "freaks" of the society like Amars]].
%%* [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie Dream Boy]]
* MatchmakerCrush: Kuranosuke does his best to get Shu and Tsukimi together, only to realize a bit too late that ''he's'' falling for Tsukimi.

%%* SpoiledSweet
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Gender aside, he looks like his mother.
* StupidSexyFlanders: A lot of male fans state-side have really taken a shine to Kuranosuke's "Kurako" persona as of late. Not to mention the fact that both the Koibuchi family's house staff and Prime Minister/Uncle Negeishi's aides have noted that he is quite the looker, and very attractive. Even Inari's assistant/co-worker agrees, much to her vehement chagrin.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: He has a large variety of different outfits.
%%* UpperClassWit
* WholesomeCrossdresser: He enjoys cross-dressing and is pretty good at it.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Or pink wigs. Or purple, or whatever he decides to wear.

->Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe (JP), Creator/IanSinclair (EN)

%%* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible one.
%%* LikeFatherLikeSon

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. He's the closest thing this cast has to a responsible, stable, well-functioning in the society adult man and he's revealed to be a virgin at the age of 30.
%%* {{Nosebleed}}
* NotSoStoic: He's not as expressive as Kuranosuke, but he's not devoid of any emotion either.
* OnlySaneMan: He's the only one trying to reason with his younger brother. Too bad Kuranosuke doesn't listen to him.
* [[spoiler:PrimalScene: G-rated version. His phobia of women comes from catching his father cheating with Kuranosuke's mother at a young age.]]
%%* {{Salaryman}}
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:Kuranosuke's mom calls Shū to ask him to get Tsukimi's original jellyfish dress after seeing her son on TV. Naturally, Shū can't tell Kuranosuke.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: He's fine with talking with business-people and his own family, but he gets very shy around Tsukimi.
%%* SiblingTriangle: With Kuranosuke towards Tsukimi.
* SiblingYinYang: Shu is reserved, tactical, and responsible. His brother is loud and flamboyant, very tactless, and irresponsible.
%%* StoicSpectacles
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: Shu proved that if you push him too far, he will retaliate. Though, admittedly, the victim completely deserved it. He later apologizes, which throws Inari and ruins her blackmail scheme speech.]]

%%* AlliterativeName
%%* CovertPervert[=/=]DirtyOldMan: In the manga.
%%* FollowInMyFootsteps
%%* GentlemanSnarker
* HeirClubForMen: The reason why he took Kuranosuke from his mom is because he was born a boy. [[spoiler:In the chapter 63 it's revealed that Lina ''did'' plan to raise Kuranosuke on her own but realized that she's too young and that task's too big for her, and thus she gave up her son to his father. Kuranosuke still thinks that the reason was that he's a boy.]]
%%* ManChild: To a degree. Doesn't have it so bad as his brother-in-law, the prime minister, though.
%%* SilverFox: Well, according to Jiji, anyway.
%%* TheStoic
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: Toward Kuranosuke. He isn't happy that the second [[HeirClubForMen "heir"]] he brought into the house is a happy-go-lucky cross-dresser instead of the serious, PR-savvy son he wanted.

[[WMG: Saburouta Negishi]]
->Voiced by: Creator/ShigeruChiba (JP), Jerry Russell (EN)

The Prime Minister of Japan and Kuranosuke's uncle.

%%* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Non-evil version, PlayedForLaughs.

%%* CoolOldGuy
%%* CreepyUncle: To his nephews.
%%** ''Kura-pyon!! <3''

* TheCasanova: He ''is'' a real lady killer , but either his [[ComedicSociopathy quirks]] make his girlfriends walk away in frustration or he just doesn't want to commit. Or both.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Shū. Even with that in mind, Hanamori is willing to sell out Shu if it means protecting his precious car.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Aside from being a Benz enthusiast and his [[TooMuchInformation uncomfortable]] [[TheDitz lack of consideration]] [[ComedicSociopathy to social situations]], Hanamori thinks that he should follow [[spoiler: Banba]]'s orders over Shū's because [[spoiler: he [[InsaneTrollLogic naturally]] can't defy orders from people with afros.]]
** He also loves taking part in protests regardless of who or what is being protested [[spoiler: and even if the protests are against his own employers!]]
* ComedicSociopathy: He has absolutely no morals when you use the Benz argument for manipulation and his tendency to put cars above people is entirely PlayedForLaughs.
* TheComicallySerious: He wears a serious expression while saying/doing something hilarious.
* TheDriver: He is Koibuchi family's chauffeur and is ''really'' into his work, as it means he gets to spend more time in a Benz.
* NotSoDifferent: He is just as a hardcore {{Otaku}} as the Amars. They notice quickly, call him "Benz otaku" and let him into their house, despite Hanamori being handsome, "stylish" and male.
* SelfInducedAllergicReaction: Breaks out in hives from eating manila clams, which he knew would happen anyway when he attempted to save Shu from Inari's advances.
%%* SharpDressedMan
%%* TerribleArtist: Unless you ask him to draw a Benz.
* TooMuchInformation: When Hanamori is surrounded by the "24 Ophelias" he blurts out that he's so obsessed with cars that his girlfriend left him because he loves cars more than her. Later, he lets it slip that if he's bribed with cars he'll reveal anything to anyone and at the fashion show goes into great detail that Kuranosuke is just a cross-dresser, not transsexual.
* WatchThePaintJob: He really pampers those Benzes. Lucky for him, none of them have been wrecked... yet.
** He's mentioned that he broke up with his own girlfriend because he preferred to spend more time with his Benzes than her.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: She can be sweet and polite as can be when it benefits her, but is nasty and ruthless underneath.
* DrivenToSuicide: Subverted. She pretended to be upset by Shu's rejection and decided to "end it". It turns out to be a ''very'' cruel joke and she just shrugs it off. [[spoiler: [[WouldHitAGirl Shu doesn't respond well to this]].]]
