"I know I tend to be dense, even when something's obvious. I'm just a bit slow – Not insensitive."
Rokuro is an amateur wizard who crash-landed head-first into Akemi's yard one day in April. He seems to attract trouble wherever he goes, and seldom comes up with a way to get out of it by himself. He also seems to have a crush on Akemi despite the fact that she's taken.
Accidental Pervert: Not as much as the usual character type would imply, but still more often than he’d like.
Rokuro: *thinking* Okay, let me think this out. It's the middle of the night; I'm outside in the yard; I'm currently being hunted down by Akemi for reasons I don't know or understand; and I'm in my underwear. My only question is this: WHY!?
Obfuscating Stupidity: Rokuro is a rather... dense... person, and can't seem to think things through, which amounts to loads of trouble for him. However, he's shown that he can handle himself professionally when the situation calls for it. The tenth arc illustrates this well, when he and Maruchi are working on an exorcism in Rie's house. Not to mention his apparent hidden genius when it comes to math equations.
Omniglot: Rokuro notes that he can speak Japanese, English, Italian, and Spanish fluently because of the job he has back home - He's a delivery boy for the different sects and domains of Mahokkai. Apparently, the different areas all speak different languages.
He can also speak "some" Esperanto, write in Tibetan (He claims everyone in his home world can do this), and read Latin. Akemi is rightfully floored by this.
"Oh, come on; don't be like that. I'm trying to compliment you."
16-year-old shrine maiden who likes to think of herself as one of the sanest people she knows. While most of the time she's considered a tomboy, when she's with Daisuke, she goes into a surprisingly girly, dere-dere mode. She has little tolerance for stupidity, and likes things to go her way.And yes, the orange hair is natural.
Anime Hair: The only (?) human to invoke this trope - Every other non-magic character is shown to have a normal, black/brown coloring. Even Rokuro thinks that her hair color is weird.
Maruchi comments that the color is "rather atypical for someone of her background".
Spell My Name with an S: While her surname is a common one, the spelling is not. Segawa is usually spelled as 瀬川 ("Shallows" and "river"), but Akemi's last name is written as 瀬雅琶 ("Shallows", "grace", "lute").
"Look, you pervert. It would do you some good to listen. This isn't your house. You can't just do whatever you want - And my daughter is at the top of that list!"
Shigeru is Akemi's Overprotective Dad and Meiko's more sensible younger brother by four years. He is noted to have no real, steady job, but is both an English tutor and the substitute coach for his old high school's kendo team. Sometimes he helps his sister with the drafts for her comic because she's usually too busy or lazy to do them herself.
"I knew ghosts and spirits were real! My fantasies aren't fantasies after all!"
Rie is Akemi's classmate and foil best friend. She's very much into the occult and the idea of magic, and acts very enthusiastic about it. Rie is also a proud Otaku, and a fangirl of Izumi Rio. She is great at school, especially English, despite the fact that all she does during class it read (Whether it be manga or an occult book). She's also Daisuke's younger sister by a year.
"Just who the hell do you think you are, touching my girlfriend like that!?"
Daisuke is Rie's older brother, Akemi's boyfriend, and a second year student at Okashii High. By his profile, he's shown to be a B+ student and a member of the kendo team. He's a truly nice guy with good morals, and is absolutely thesanest person in the cast, but will fly off the handle if you do anything to upset or hurt Akemi. Your ass is grass, then. Like Rokuro, Daisuke is afraid of Shigeru.
"Give my best regards and apology to your father, will you? Oh, and tell Rokuro and Maruchi that they did a good job as well."
Hizen is Akemi's slightly creepy substitute homeroom teacher. He was Shigeru's classmate back when they attended high school, and still holds some amount of enmity towards him. He became a permanent part of the cast upon learning about his rival's houseguests.
Shichi is another resident of Kitakuvaaraji. He first appears as an evil spirit, scaring Rie from her home so he could live there while training to become a majikyou, but is later caught and revealed to be a very talkative boy with the power to control shadows. Shichi is also revealed to be Maruchi's second and youngest brother, and admires him very much. He's two hundred and ten years old and colorblind (Which partly explains his horrible taste in fashion).
Anime Hair: Best example of it in this story so far.
"I suppose some things just don't change in some centuries and a half… Though I shouldn't be surprised. Both your heart and blood were always cold."
Another resident of Kitakuvaaraji and Shichi's mentor. She runs an occult shop in the heart of the city, where she first came across Rokuro, Akemi, and Rie. Sandra despises Maruchi due to their past history, but is civil enough to speak with him evenly without losing her cool often.
Aerith and Bob: Amidst the traditional Japanese names, Sandra seems like an odd addition. (Even if it's spelled that way due to the kanji pronunciation.)
Heroes Want Redheads: Maruchi explicitly stated that they once had a sex-based relationship in the past... Though whether he actually wanted her or was just using her to get her Falcari pendant is left ambiguous.
Human Shield: An indirect example. She tells Maruchi that if she dies, Akemi and Rokuro will be going with her.
Unusual Ears: As seen in the above-linked picture, Sandra's ears aren't just pointed; they have two points on top and one near the bottom of her earlobe.
The Segawa Family
Meiko Segawa (瀬雅琶命子)
"He's so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!"
Meiko was the first other Segawa family member to get a formal introduction in Mabaka!. She is the eccentric older sister of Shigeru, and Akemi's only aunt. She's an extremely happy person, and makes her feelings and thoughts known loudly and bluntly. She loves her little brother very much, and is insulted by the fact that he refuses to work with her on her manga, Yamato Master.She is married to Tsukkomi, and has a daughter, Emiri.
Berserk Button: Apparently, bringing up the topic of her age is a sore spot for her.
"Very sorry to disturb you, Shigeru-san... We'll just be on our way now."
The most worrisome character of the story. He's a company worker who married into the Segawa family by marrying Meiko. He's a rather nervous man, and he's known to apologize a lot - Mainly to Shigeru. When altercations break out between the two siblings, Tsukkomi is the one who tries to remain neutral and calm them down. He's also the tallest character in the series.He has a single daughter named Emiri.
"Why do I have to be around the crazies my entire life?"
Emiri is Akemi's eleven-year-old cousin. She's the daughter of Tsukkomi and Meiko, and seems to be more like her father than her mother. She has more common sense than most of her family does, as it's noted by Akemi. She may or may not be classified as a know-it-all, depending on who you ask. Apparently, she wants to go into the medical field when she's older. She also tends to invariably tick Rokuro off whenever they speak.
The major part of Rokuro's magic is him utilizing different elements and weapons. Unfortunately, his uniform isn't the only thing that changes when he activates them...Tropes that apply to all of the charms (So far):
Hammerspace: When reading, it's clear that Rokuro pulled the Furyuhiko right from under his cape. With no explanation whatsoever, unlike with Rudaia's Hitorigama.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His mouth and blunt criticism makes Akemi label this side of him as a complete asshole. Yet he still abandons his battle with Maruchi to save her from being crushed by a tree.
