Main Characters

Sunako Nakahara

Voiced by: Yukiko Takaguchi (JP), Hannah Alcorn (EN)

The female lead. Sunako is a girl who usually locks herself away inside her room and chooses to live without any desire for light or beauty after a traumatic experience when she was rejected and told that she was ugly by her first love.
  • The Ace: When Sunako tries, she can be decently good at almost anything - even the more feminine arts. The trick is getting her to care.
  • Action Girl: Can out run, out jump and beat up most characters. She's a good fit for Kyohei in that way.
  • Allergic to Love: She completely freaks out, nosebleeds to the point of hemorrhage and passes out whenever she sees "bright creatures."
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Whenever she gains enough confidence, she breaks out of her Super-Deformed mode and becomes a beautiful pale-skinned girl with long black hair and an aloof and graceful attitude.
  • Battle Couple: With Kyohei.
  • Beautiful All Along: Whenever she gains enough confidence to break out of her Super-Deformed mode.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Kyohei.
  • Bifauxnen: In Chapter 73.
  • Birds of a Feather: Superficial differences aside she's very similar to Kyohei.
  • Blinding Bangs: In her chibi version, her bangs hide her eyes.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Sunako lives in her own crazy and creepy world.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: With her sickly pale skin and long black hair combined with her creepy behaviour, it's easy to mistake her for a Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Hilariously enough Kyohei's goth stalker fan club ends up falling for her.
  • Everybody Hates Mathematics: Math is the only subject in which she doesn't get good grades.
  • The First Cut Is the Deepest: At first, this seems to be the source of all her personality problems. After her first love rejected by calling her ugly, she turned into the gloomy and isolated girl she is now. This eventually gets subverted when it's made clear Sunako isn't bothered by the rejection anymore and she continues to act the same way. She met her first love again and turned out to have partly forgotten about the incident. It seems that besides the initial hurt, this is who she is and she's mostly ok with that.
  • Friend to All Children: Sunako bonds easily with children - she's notably more patient and understanding around them.
  • Girls Love Chocolate: Loves chocolate.
  • Hikikomori: She does go to school, but she prefers to spend most of her time shut herself inside her dark room with her anatomical dolls.
  • Hime Cut: It goes with her aspiring Yamato Nadeshiko theme.
  • I Am Not Pretty:
  • Lonely Doll Girl: Has two anatomical dolls that she considers to be her friends.
  • Loners Are Freaks
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Loves horror movies, anatomical dolls, ghosts and monsters.
  • Nosebleed: Her reaction to seeing "Bright Creatures".
  • Oblivious to Love: Pretty much all the romantic subtext between her and Kyohei goes right over her head.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: She repeatedly claims she's the only one who can kill the "Bright Creature" (Kyohei). This is her excuse for why she always comes to his rescue when he's in trouble.
  • The Ophelia: A comedic parody of this.
  • Post-Kiss Catatonia: She went into severe catatonia after her kiss with Kyohei, and often doesn't even need another kiss to go into it again, now.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches past her waist.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: When she's cleaned up, Sunako turns into a gorgeous lady with pale white skin and long black hair that fits perfectly the image of the traditional Japanese beauty everyone wants her to be.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Made clear even in the first chapter.
  • Super-Deformed: Almost all the time.
  • Supreme Chef: Because Feminine Women Can Cook. Ties into the fact that Sunako is generally good at housework.
  • Tomboy: Though she isn't exactly into traditionally boy activities, she avoids traditionally girl activities in every way and loves anything creepy.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Noi's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Although not exactly a girly girl, she has surprising domestic skills.
  • Tsundere: Sometimes towards Kyohei.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: When we finally meet her parents.
  • Used to Be More Social: Before her first love rejected her, she used to hang out with other girls normally. Now she'd rather to shut herself in her room and talk to her anatomical dolls than getting close to real people.
  • Weakened by the Light: And by bright creatures
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Kyohei, to ridiculous heights.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: She is supposed to become one, she has the domestic skills and looks (when she isn't drawn chibi-style) but she's made the conscious decision to let all the other traits slide due to first reject trauma.
  • Yandere: She tries to kill people she's attracted to.

Kyohei Takano

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (JP), Josh Grelle (EN)

The male lead. The most popular and physically attractive of the four boys. Kyohei is initially seen as selfish, blunt, and demanding and has no inclination to be gentle towards Sunako unless it will reduce rent, but eventually develops feelings for her.

Takenaga Oda

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Vic Mignogna (EN)

The most intellectual of the four. Takenaga was originally from a wealthy family descended from flower masters, but when the pressure of being the family heir was too much, he became completely withdrawn and ignored everyone. He was sent to live at the Landlady's mansion in hopes of becoming more "normal".

Ranmaru Morii

Voiced by: Hirofumi Nojima (JP), Chris Patton (EN)

A ladies' man, Ranmaru is often going out with various beautiful older (and often married) women. The very sight of Sunako initially has him breaking out in hives, but when her true beauty is revealed, he decides that she has "potential" to become a real lady. Like Takenaga, he comes from a wealthy family (who own a series of hotel chains), but was sent to live with the Landlady because he exploited his wealth and his parents wanted him to become "normal".

Yukinojo "Yuki" Toyama

Voiced by: Yamauchi Yuuya (JP), Greg Ayres (EN)

The most "normal" of the four boys; before coming to live at the mansion he had a normal school life with a middle-class family. His mother and the Landlady are old friends and the Landlady, and Sunako at times, has a soft spot for Yuki.

Noi Kasahara

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (JP), Jessica Boone (EN)

Takenaga's girlfriend. She is pretty and exceedingly popular. Noi is Sunako's closest friend at school, where Sunako is scorned for her terrifying demeanor and association with the boys. She admires Sunako's tough attitude and also believes that Sunako and Kyohei are compatible as a couple.

Supporting Characters

Mine Nakahara (The Landlady)

Voiced by: Yuka Komatsu (JP), Tiffany Grant (EN)

Sunako's aunt, who expects Kyohei, Takenaga, Yuki, and Ranmaru to make Sunako into a lady.

Tamao Kikunoi

Voiced by: Erika (JP), Luci Christian (EN)

Ranmaru's fiancée. She is extremely wealthy and studies at an all-girls school. Despite Ranmaru's playboy qualities, she has fallen in love with him. His rejection of her does not faze her, hoping that eventually he would come to feel the same way.

Goth-Loli Sisters
