Characters: Sakura Gari

The characters of Sakura Gari are here.

Masataka Tagami

  • Accidental Pervert: He meets Katsuragi... when walking on him and Souma doing it.
  • Aloof Big Brother: To Mitsugu, though they get better.
  • Bishōnen : So very pretty.
  • Break the Cutie: The story bends over to break the kid. It almost succeeds.
  • Brooding Older Guy, Gentle Younger Kid: The Gentle part.
  • Celibate Hero: How he starts. He doesn't stay like that, obviously.
    • Bi the Way: While he says he's uninterested in sex and wants to focus on anything but that, Masataka soon starts feeling attracted to both Sakurako and Souma, much to his own shock and embarrassment. Then things start going From Bad to Worse...
  • Child by Rape: The reason why Masataka's birth mother hates him. She then pretty much "sold" him to the Tagamis when he was six.
  • Happily Adopted: Sorta. The Tagamis paid much more attention to Mitsugu due to his weak health, but they didn't exactly abandon Masataka either.
  • The Unfavorite: He feels resentment over his younger brother Mitsugu so he often tends to act cold to him, while Mitsugu obliviously clings to him to try have his attention.
  • Rape as Drama: First Souma, then Katsuragi.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Takafumi's harmonica.
  • What Beautiful Eyes: As said by Souma.

Souma Saiki

Lord Saiki

Lady Saiki alias the first Sakurako

Sakurako Saiki Actually, Youya Saiki

Nogawa "Takafumi" Matsushita

  • Big Brother Mentor: To his little brother Masataka.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Harsh and rough around the edges, but basically a kind and hardworking young man who loves his baby brother. He's also the only member of Masataka's birth family that he's more or less in contact with.
  • Police Brutality: He dies as a result of being captured and subjected to Cold-Blooded Torture by the police... Which Masataka found out after Souma blackmailed him into sex.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He ends up dead because of the...
  • Yakuza: He gets in trouble with them, and Masataka is stuck with working off his debt... to Souma. He does keep his word and pay up though... Bad thing, it still doesn't work.

Mitsugu Tagami

  • Cherry Blossoms: He likes to make charms in the shape of sakura flowers. And he gives some to Masataka before he returns home, to wish him luck in his university exams.
  • Cute Shotaro Boy
  • Ill Boy: Has been thrice in the brink of death. And one of them happens when Masataka is in Tokyo, so the Tagamis send him a telegram and ask him to come back home for a while.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Subverted. Mitsugu clung to Masataka which caused him to reject him, but later he revealed that he was very aware of the tensions between them and even confesses that he almost wanted to die because of it. Masataka calls him foolish, but from then on they start getting along better.



  • The Butlerdid It: Not really. Until the end, where he does stab Souma over Youya's death.
  • Old Retainer: Subverted, he turns out to be way more than that. More exactly: he is Sakurako/Youya's real father as well as their caretaker.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Sakurako.


Dr. Tomohiko Katsuragi

  • Abusive Parents: Off-handedly mentions that his mother abused him. He also has a flashback of his teenage self tied up to a cherry tree, but not many details are given.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He appears at first to be a handsome but stoic doctor. Then we're led to believe he's a shady but not really evil guy, even getting an apparent Pet the Dog moment via supporting Masataka in public. And then we get to see what an horrible person he actually is.
  • Domestic Abuser: Poor Asayo
  • Eye Scream: When he puts Masataka's hand inside a pot of boiling tea, Masataka is finally able to react and defends himself via throwing the pot and the tea on Katsuragi's face before running away. Later, Katsuragi is seen with half his face bandaged - including his left eye.
  • Hospital Hottie
  • Humiliation Conga: The three persons he abused the most become the key to his perdition.
  • Master Poisoner: Katsuragi made his own drugs and poison, using hemlock and arsenic among other things. Considering that he poisoned Lady Saiki to death and later slowly started to do the same to Lord Saiki...
  • Rags to Riches: The backstory shows him as as a low-to-mid class highschool student who lived and worked in the Saiki's Big Fancy House. When we meet him, he's one of the top doctors in a local hospital and the personal physician of the Saiki clan.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Masataka while raping him. Is given one by Souma right before his fatal Humiliation Conga.
  • Two-Faced: Under the bandages covering his face, you can see the borders of the massive burns left by the boiling tea that Masataka threw at him in self-defense.
  • Yandere: To Nightmare Fuel levels.
