The Main Cast


Just your regular middle-school students. note 

The six students of Misumaru Middle School Hajime befriends appear quite normal, but as Hajime discovers, there's more to the kids than what their appearances suggest.

    Hajime Murata 
Voiced by: Kenji Nojima (JP), Billy Regan (EN)

The narrator of our story. He's a middle-schooler, and the class rep for 2nd year homeroom C. After discovering that Muryou and Kyouichi have astonishing powers, he decides to keep track of all the strange events that start to unfold - but he soon finds himself more deeply involved than he bargained for. Hajime is very social and mature for his age, and adjusts well to even the most bizarre situations.
  • Audience Surrogate: Right from the first episode, Hajime narrates his adventures and experiences so the watchers will understand what happens to him and his friends.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Hajime Murata occasionally turns to the audience and comments. Of course, this hasn't gone unnoticed, and other characters ask who he is talking to and think he is strange. Kazuo Murata, Hajime father, also does this when he first show up. "Like father, like son".
  • Class Representative: He's easy-going, but feels responsible for the students in his class. This leads to him going to the roof of the gym to try stop Muryou and Kyouichi from fighting in the first episode.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His brown hair matches his brown eyes.
  • Ghost Memory
  • Kid Detective: Though he's really a middle school student, Hajime acts like one, investigating the weird occurrences in Tokyo, everyone's unfazed reactions to the alien attacks, and the enigma that is Muryou Subaru.
  • Meganekko: Male example; he wears really large glasses.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Other than his ability to break the fourth wall, he doesn't have any outlandish abilities that his classmates have.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: As a Class Representative, he has to be one. In the first episode, he immediately runs as soon as Harumi tells him of a pending fight on the school roof, and tries to defuse the situation.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Seems that his father has the same fourth wall-breaking ability as he does.
  • Trash of the Titans: His bedroom is quite messy.
  • Unfazed Everyman: He takes becoming part of the Masquerade surprisingly well.
  • You Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You: In the first episode, Hajime refrains from explaining to Mr. Yamamoto what happened between Muryou and Kyouichi, but who's going to believe the story of two students fighting each other with telekinesis?

    Muryou Subaru 
Voiced by: Issei Miyazaki (JP), Daniel Kevin Harrison (EN)

This mysterious transfer student came to Misumaru Middle School wearing a 20th century school uniform, something rarely seen in the year 2070. He's always calm and laid-back, but at the same time, he has secret powers that he rarely reveals. Little is known about Muryou; in fact, the more that's revealed about him, the more enigmatic he becomes. He seems to know something about the recent alien incidents, though, which makes Vice President Kyouichi instantly suspicious.

    Naiyuta Moriyama 
Voiced by: Romi Paku (JP), Angora Deb (EN)

Vice President at Misumaru Middle School; she's an honor student who always goes by the rules. Daughter of the shrine priest at the local Tenmo Shrine, Naiyuta is very serious, almost to a fault. She has trouble expressing her emotions, and doesn't like the idea of depending on anyone else.

    Kyouichi Moriguchi 
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Dan Green (EN)

Misumaru Middle School's passionate Student Vice President. He has a black belt in martial arts and a lightning-quick temper to match, but he's also very loyal and will stand by his friends no matter what. There appears to be some kind of connection between Kyouichi and Harumi; but at the moment, neither of them seems willing - or able - to acknowledge it. Despite all his harsh words, Kyouichi actually does have a soft side, and is hard not to like.

    Hachiyou Tsunamori 
Voiced by: Yuuji Ueda (JP), Brian Maillard (EN)

Hachiyou is the Student Government President. His personality is very calm and quiet, but with a certain commanding presence - whenever trouble appears, Hachiyou is quick to take charge. He's a bit like a father figure for the group; with only a word from Hachiyou, even the hot-headed Naiyuta and Kyouichi will calm down and follow his lead.

    Shun Morihata 
Voiced by: Yumiko Kobayashi (JP), Tara Jayne (EN)

Shun is the Student Government Secretary. He's always cheerful, no matter what the situation; he's also very sharp, and eloquent with his words. Perhaps that's why he's so incredibly popular among the students (especially the ladies!) Shun has a lot of responsibilities around the school; he's often called on to be an announcer at events, and he's a member of the Theatre Club - a natural match for his acting skills.

    Harumi Mineo 
Voiced by: Masumi Asano (JP), Jane Lingo (EN)

The Treasurer of the Student Government. She's quiet and demure, but also extremely resilient; she seems to deliberately avoid being in the spotlight, and usually hides her emotions. Harumi's role in the mystery that surrounds the Shingu is unclear, but one thing is certain - despite appearances, Harumi is a skilled fighter, and she takes her duties very seriously.

Other students and faculty members of Misumaru Middle School

    Mr. Yamamoto 
Voiced by: Bon Ishihara (JP), Michael Alston Baley (EN)

Hajime’s homeroom teacher. He has a very mellow personality and at first glance, he seems like an average, ordinary man. But Mr. Yamamoto has an important role in policing the area and he can pull off some surprising fighting techniques! Mr. Yamamoto is an easy-going, approachable guy, and he’s very popular among his students. Though it’s rarely mentioned, his first name is Tadakazu.

    Hiromi Isozaki 
Voiced by: Yōko Sasaki (JP), Carol Jacobanis (EN)

Hiromi Isozaki (if that is, in fact, her real name), is the phys-ed instructor and teacher at Misumaru Middle School.…or is this just a front? She may seem unemotional at times, but she is very much attached to her students. No matter what happens, she always does her best to be calm and in control.

Family Members of the Main Cast

    Setsuna Subaru 
Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Megan Hollingshead (EN)

Muryou's older sister. She's a college student who lives in Tokyo, but she often comes to Lady Momoe's home to visit Muryou. In fact, it's become a trademark of hers to stop by with all sorts of sweets from various parts of Japan. She's got a cheerful disposition, and sometimes seems a bit scatterbrained. But like a lot of people in Hajime's life, there's more to her meets the eye… Setsuna has a lot of hidden qualities, but one thing's for certain - she's very good at looking after people.

    Kyoko Murata 
Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka (JP), Lisa Ortiz (EN)

Hajime's mother. She has two children, Futaba (an elementary-schooler) and, of course, Hajime (a middle schooler). She's a young mother, and currently takes care of the kids and the house while her husband is away. Casual and easygoing, Kyoko's pretty laid back when it comes to the kids doing their schoolwork, but she's very strict about their manners. Kyoko is a woman of many skills; not only is she good at running the Murata household, but she plays a mean game of Bam Bam Sumo Tournament, too.

    Futaba Murata 
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (JP), Angora Deb (EN)

Hajime's younger sister. She's a bubbly sixth grader who tends to fall in love with her brother's friends, a prime example being Muryou. Always optimistic, energetic and curious, Futaba is never afraid to speak her mind. She and her brother fight like cats and dogs... but in truth, she loves her brother a lot.

    Momoe Sanamori 
Voiced by: Hisako Kyōda (JP), Rachael Lillis (EN)

The Head Mistress of the Sanemori family. She holds an important position among the people of Tenmo, but the nature of her position has yet to be revealed. Momoe seems to know the truth about many things - Tenmo, Naiyuta, even Muryou - so it's no surprise that when important events take place, Momoe is there to guide the way with her wisdom.


Voiced by: Kenichi Ono (JP), John Campbell (EN)

He’s a Velunnian who goes by many names: Aloha, Ve-yan, Jil... but the one he uses most is Jiltosh. While most aliens do their best to blend in, Jiltosh’s happy-go-lucky persona has bubbled over into his appearance – you’ll always be able to spot his wavy curls and bright red Hawaiian shirt. Jiltosh is a first class diplomat, and every once in a while, you can tell that there’s something hidden behind his cheerful smile.

Voiced by: Shigeru Shibuya (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)

Weinul is a Lieutenant in the Zaiglian Space Force. Weinul is a man in search of the truth; and to that end, he’s decided to blend in with the people of Earth. Just like other Zaiglians, he’s very poker-faced… But at the same time, he’s also calm and collected, as any good Lieutenant should be. Though he’s not much of a talker, Weinul is always ready and willing to adapt to new situations.
  • Cyborg
  • The Stoic: Maintains a poker face at all times. It's a trait shared by all Zaiglians.

    Kazuo Murata 
Voiced by: Tetsuo Sakaguchi (JP), Wayne Grayston (EN)

Hajime’s father. He’s kept quite busy with his work so he doesn’t get to spend much time at home. Kazuo is cheerful and easygoing, but he does have a certain mystique.

    Kanata Myouken 
Voiced by: Kōsuke Okano (JP), Bill Rogers (EN)
This mysterious figure first appears during the big judo match between Mischu and Miyanomori. He’s there under the guise of a simple team helper, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. Kanata is quiet, but extremely confident – and he has every reason to be.
