Fuminori Sakisaka

Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (credited as Hikaru)

The main character. A medical student in his twenties and the sole survivor of a horrible car accident. Saved by an experimental medical treatment, he now sees the world in a contorted manner with the exception of one thing: a girl named Saya.


Voiced by: Naoko Takano (credited as Midori Kawamura)

A strange girl who's been living with Fuminori ever since he got out of the hospital. She's the only thing that appears normal to him.

  • Apocalypse Maiden: Her pregnancy marks the end of humankind.
  • Betty and Veronica: Veronica to Yoh's Betty.
  • Big Bad
  • Blue and Orange Morality
  • Brown Note: Her true form is treated like this. All of the humans that have seen it have immediately lost their sanity if they aren't outright killed by her. Only people who are already insane/disturbed seem to be unaffected, not to mention people with Fuminori's brain disorder.
  • Ceiling Cling: Capable of doing this to sneak up on her prey, and she kills Ōmi this way.
  • Combat Tentacles: Her true form has many of these.
  • Cute Monster Girl: NO.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Death by Childbirth: In the second ending.
  • Deuteragonist
  • Does Not Like Shoes: It seems so, but the player doesn't see her feet when Fuminori talks to her, unless the CGs show more of her body. She's mostly seen in his house where she doesn't wear shoes (or socks). It's probable that she doesn't have shoes, every other character who enters in Fuminori's home doesn't see shoes of a girl. However, when Yousuke can see her as a normal girl, she's seen wearing white sandals.
    • She also wears sandals on the cover.
  • Don't Look at Me!: In the first ending, she visits Fuminori in the mental ward at night one day, but refuses to let him see her true form despite his desire to see her one more time. Instead, she passes him a cellphone from behind the door which they use to exchange messages with each other, until she finally bids him farewell.
  • Eats Babies: Maybe. Supposedly one disappeared from the hospital while Saya was staying there, but nothing is confirmed.
  • Eldritch Abomination
  • Evil Laugh
  • Extreme Omnisexual: Implied, given her treatment of Yoh.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: She and Fuminori don't end up together in any of the game's 3 endings.
  • The Fake Cutie: Looks and acts this way in front of Fuminori.
  • Flower Motifs: She compares herself to a dandelion. Fitting, considering the ending where she scatters her "pollen" to infect humans worldwide.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Her true form is implied to be a cross between a Blob Monster and a Starfish Alien.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Averted, she and Fuminori have a very active sex life even though they get more depraved as the story goes on.
  • The Grotesque
  • Hell Is That Noise: In-universe, her true voice when it's heard by normal humans is treated this way, and sounds quite bizarre.
  • I Do Not Drink Wine: Fuminori mentions he never saw her eat in front of him at the beginning of the game. He later finds out why.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Eros type.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Technically, although she only counts as one because she looks like a human in front of Fuminori while eating her favorite kind of meal.
    • To Serve Man: She can eat animals as well, such as birds or cats, but prefers humans above all else.
  • It Amused Me: She used to haunt the hospital Ougai worked in prior to meeting Fuminori, and spent her nights wandering the halls and scaring the crap out of insane patients (who would never be believed by anyone) for her own amusement. In fact, this was the reason she met Fuminori in the first place since she was trying to terrify him with her appearance, but when he didn't react to her with fear, she became interested in him.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In the first ending when she returns Fuminori's sight to normal again, while knowing that he can never love her the same way as he did before.
  • Kill It with Ice: In the third ending, Saya gets killed with the help of liquid nitrogen after Ryouko discovers the only vulnerability in her biological makeup: below freezing temperatures.
  • Leitmotif: Song of Saya I & II, two soothing but distinctly otherworldly and eerie tracks that capture everything about her character perfectly.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: So very much for Fuminori. If he had never met her, he would have killed himself a long time ago. In fact, one of the three endings has him commit suicide immediately after seeing her dying body.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Fuminori notes she is always eager to go to bed with him every day.
  • Love Makes You Crazy and Evil
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: She's not really Ougai's daughter, but she still calls him her papa.
  • Magical Girlfriend: A monstrous variation of the trope, although her love for Fuminori is still portrayed as genuine.
  • Mysterious Waif
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: She's not immune to pain though. Bullets still clearly hurt her, but they won't outright kill her. Liquid nitrogen on the other hand...
  • Only One Name: Her name was given by Ougai, who named her after his beloved mother's cat.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Or rather, in her case it's parturition.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild
  • Rape as Drama: By Yousuke Suzumi.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Goes all the way down her waist to her feet. She has two shorter locks of hair that stick out rather like cat ears, too.
  • Rasputinian Death: In the third ending. Even after getting half her body frozen by liquid nitrogen and then blown off by a 12-gauge shotgun, she somehow manages to slowly crawl over to Fuminori's side, all while Kouji is bashing her body over and over with a steel pipe, until she finally reaches him, weakly touches his face and then finally dies.
  • Sanity Slippage: Subtly suffers from this after she's raped.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Fuminori. The only ending where they both survive is the one where he's locked up in a mental institution for the rest of his life, and she's out there somewhere still searching for her foster father, Ougai.
  • Super Intelligence: Her entire race has this trait.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Again with Fuminori.
  • Villain Protagonist
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: In one of the endings, she kills Kouji brutally and starts consuming his body immediately after breaking his neck because he was hurting Fuminori.
  • Woman in White
  • Yandere: Rather than Murder the Hypotenuse though, Saya has a much worse fate planned for her...

Kouji Tonoo

Voiced by: Yasunori Matsumoto (credited as Daijiro Kataoka)

Fuminori's friend. After Fuminori's accident he has been trying to help Fuminori's life get back to normal.

  • Action Survivor
  • Combat Pragmatist: His skill and experience in street fighting makes him a superior combatant to Fuminori, who has never fought anyone before.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the third ending. He hasn't killed himself yet, but the only way he can continue living with the knowledge he now has is by keeping a revolver loaded with a single bullet in his room all the time.
  • First Name Basis: To Fuminori and Omi.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation
  • He Knows Too Much: Fuminori tries to kill him because of this. Luckily, Ryoko finds him before he dies inside the well he was pushed into.
  • Hero Antagonist
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Justified in that Fuminori was his best friend though, and Kouji would have never guessed he would later try to kill him. Nonetheless, he still suffers a bit from this when Fuminori shows up, starts acting strange, and abruptly asks to be driven all the way to a far, remote location without suspecting he might be up to something.
  • The Insomniac: Suffers from recurrent nightmares after surviving in the third ending.
  • The Match Maker: He and Ōmi were trying to get their respective friends, Fuminori and Yoh, together as a couple before the accident happened.
  • Nice Guy: He's the only genuine example of this, unlike Fuminori, at least before he gets broken down by his subsequent experiences.
  • Only Sane Man: Lampshades this at one point, when he wonders why he keeps meeting crazy people all the time. This is before he loses it too, though.
  • Pipe Pain: He picks up a steel pipe during his final confrontation with Fuminori at his new home.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red oni to Ryoko's blue.
  • Sanity Slippage
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Ōmi, before she got killed. This only applies to their personalities though, and not their physical attributes.
  • Sole Survivor: In the third ending.
  • Spanner in the Works: If he hadn't called Ryuko when Fuminori wasn't looking, he would've been left to die in the well and Fuminori would've gotten away with everything with nobody to stop him.
  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness/Too Dumb to Live: The player can actually invoke these tropes by choosing to have Kouji immediately phone Fuminori after finding the refrigerated remains of his girlfriend in Fuminori's house, rather than choosing the more rational option of contacting Ryoko first. Depending on which choice is picked, Kouji will either play these tropes entirely straight or avert them.

Ōmi Takahata

Voiced by: Hyo-sei (credited as Elena Kaibara)

Kouji's girlfriend and Yoh's best friend. She's killed by Saya when she invades in Fuminori's house. Her flesh is the first that Fuminori eats.

Yoh Tsukuba

Voiced by: Mio Yasuda (credited as Izumi Yazawa)

A young woman with an unrequited crush on Fuminori. She sincerely tries to help and understand him but her attempts to reach out to him are always met with disdain. She dies in 2 of the game's 3 endings.

Ryōko Tanbo

Voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga (credited as Makoto Sato)

Fuminori's doctor. A friendly professional who wants to help Fuminori as best as she can. Her real personality is actually very distant and calculated. She also knows a lot more about Fuminori's condition and treatment than she lets on. She dies in 1 of the game's 3 endings.

Masahiko Ōgai

Click here to see their picture 

Doctor Masahiko Ōgai is the foster father of Saya and he worked in Dr. Tanbo's hospital, until he suddenly disappeared. He's involved in several mysteries and Fuminori helps Saya to find him and he investigates him. Dr. Ōgai studied Saya and taught her various things, e.g. talking or math. He commited suicide, and his skeleton is found by Doctor Tanbo and Kouji if the player doesn't play the first ending.

Yousuke Suzumi

Voiced by: (credited as) Masayuki Onizawa

Fuminori's neighbor and an artist who lives with his wife and little daughter Hiromi next to the Sakisaka house. Saya messes with his brain, giving him the same vision problem as Fuminori. Believing that his wife and daughter are aliens, he kills them and then he rapes Saya, believing she's the only girl in the world. He's killed by Fuminori during his rape.

  • All Men Are Rapists: Believing that Saya is the only girl in the world, he rapes her.
  • Asshole Victim: You cannot feel sympathy for him when he's raping Saya.
  • Ax-Crazy: After seeing an Eldritch Abomination that is actually his wife, he kills everything that looks alien.
  • Dirty Old Man: He rapes Saya because she is the only girl he can see in the world.
  • Dramatic Irony: He doesn't recognize his wife and daughter after the surgery and kills them.
  • Eye Scream: Fuminori stabs his eye first before he's killed.
  • Fan Disservice: Raping Saya isn't nice to watch, but later when Fuminori's see this act, he believes that Yousuke is a purple Eldritch Abomination with its penis in her. Squick.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: After Saya changes his brain.
  • Knife Nut: He uses a knife to protect himself.
  • Megane
  • Neat Freak: The game goes into great detail about his daily routine and how obsessive he is over keeping his house clean.
  • Nice Guy: Played with. He offers his help cleaning Fuminori's garden since it's stinking, but Fuminori suggests that he pretends to be nice and Fuminori's garden disturbs Yousuke's perfect image of his house. However, Yousuke talks with his wife about Fuminori's current situation and they seem to concern about him. Then Yousuke goes insane and he loses his nice attitude anyway.
  • Pater Familicide: The results of Saya's brain surgery and going insane.
  • Stuffed In A Fridge: Like Omi, he and his family are dismembered and put in a refridgerator.
