Characters from Sensual Phrase.

Aine Yukimura / Ookuchi

Voiced by: Atsuko Enomoto (TV series), Houko Kuwashima (Drama CD)

Sakuya Ookuchi

Voiced by: Masaya Matsukaze (TV series), Takehito Koyasu (Drama CD)

  • Bare Your Midriff: Everyone goes through it, but Sakuya gets more points since he actually wears this from the beginning.
  • Bastard Boyfriend: Moreso in the manga, but in the anime he has his moments too. He's a Type 2: "Troubled, but Cute dude with a Dark and Troubled Past and an even worse current attitude"
  • Broken Ace: He excels at anything he puts his mind into, whether it's music, acting, business, sports or modelling. At the same time, he is seriously screwed up.
  • Berserk Button: Don't do anything that hurts Aine, he will find you and do everything in his power to make you pay.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Half-American. The only traits that reveal his American ancestry are his blue eyes and large frame.
  • Child by Rape: Ralph's father raped Sakuya's mother, then Sakuya was born from it.
  • Compensated Dating: Did that ever since he was in his late teens. The manga takes it further, making him a straightforward High Class Call Boy. This is how he met Ayako Sakura, actually.
  • Enforced Method Acting: During the filming of the movie starring him and Ayako Sakura, Sakuya is injured while protecting Aine from falling props in an accident caused by Ayako Sakura's secretary (under Ayako's orders). His injury is then written (by his urging) into the scene where he shows up drunk at Ayako's character's home, with the film crew agreeing that the scene is better than how it was originally written.
  • Financial Abuse: Was adopted and raised by Reiko's manager after her death, but mostly because said manager saw that Sakuya had inherited his mother's musical talents and wanted to use the kid to Work Off the Debt that Reiko left before dying.
  • Jail Bait: A rare male example. Had sex with Ayako Sakura for the first time when she was 20 and he was 12, which would make her a sex offender. In her defense, she genuinely thought that he was much older than he really was at the time.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his attitude, you have to admit that he can, and become one, showing how caring and loving he can be to those close to him, especially Aine.
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky
  • Troubled, but Cute
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If the flashbacks to his Dark and Troubled Past are indication.

Reiko Ookuchi

Voiced by: Chiyoko Kawashima (TV series)

  • Alcoholic Parent
  • Broken Bird
  • Hot Mom: Sakuya's
  • Lady Drunk
  • Missing Mom: Died when Sakuya was as much 12 years old
  • Parental Neglect: Heavily neglected Sakuya when drunk. Which was, like, half the time. (The other half, Reiko cheerfully played her piano and taught Sakuya to sing and play.)
  • Rape as Backstory: Was raped by Ralph's father, and that completely destroyed her mind. The consequences made it worse.

Yoshihiko "Santa" Nagai

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (TV series), Mitsuo Iwata (CD drama)

  • Hot-Blooded
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Flat Character: He never really got a plotline for himself and all. He does get a little more development in the anime, which shows why he and Yuki let their former band.
  • Walking the Earth: In the manga, after Aucifer is disbanded he begins travelling alone to fulfill his own interests. Appaently, his published travel journals became pretty popular.
