(thinking) If I hear the word "manly" one more time, I'm going to flip this whole kingdom upside down.
One of the main protagonists, Xolga is a private investigator who was assigned a partner named Mr. Toko. While on an assignment to retrieve a locket, Xolga touches it and gets turned into a teddy bear. Throughout the first series, Xolga travels to different worlds with Mr. Toko to try to find the locket, and get back to normal. But he soon finds out that both their bodies were eaten by the locket, so they are stuck in their substitute bodies forever.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being a Jerk Ass, he'll go out of his way to help people if he feels that they need it, such as finding Terry his body and going after Mr Toko when he goes to the past to prevent what started the series.
Hired to be Xolga's sidekick, Mr Toko is the second protagonist. Joining the Agency right before the event with the locket, Mr. Toko is very cheerful and makes light of the situation with the stuffed animal forms. He somehow gained the ability to travel to different worlds and times, which is how the two show up in different places. Interestingly enough, while the first series focuses on Xolga, the second series focuses on Mr. Toko, and his tragic past which is only hinted at in the first.
Break the Cutie: Not only does he forget his memories for more than half of the series, but after he finally remembers everything, he believes that he wasn't meant to have friends because the friends he did have died; One he witnessed being killed, and one who died to keep Mr. Toko alive.
Demoted to Extra: Is a major character as a romance option in his origin games (the Anime Sim Dates and Memory Days), but has only a supporting role here. However, it's not as bad as other examples, since his perspective of the story is shown in episode three.
Small Role, Big Impact: Although she rarely appears, the after-effects of what she does (namely, making Xolga and Mr. Toko find the locket for her) is what kick-starts the entire series. If she had done her job herself, things would've gone drastically differently.

Small Role, Big Impact: While he only shows up in the first and last episodes (not counting his appearance in the Lotus-Eater Machine that Xolga gets trapped inside in the finale), he's the one who introduced Xolga and Mr. Toko to each other in the first place, helping set off the events of the plot.
