He has the ability to take over another person's body for five seconds. After being tricked and manipulated into using his ability by Nao, he is forcibly transferred to Hoshinoumi Academy and paid to join the student council.²----²* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:Thanks to his initial ability, ''[[PowerParasite plunder]]'', he becomes this in many timelines.]]²** By episode 5 [[spoiler: (original timeline where the series starts), he got: ''thoughtography, {{telekinesis}}'', and ''[[InASingleBound flight]]''.]] ²** In episode 9 [[spoiler:(old timeline where all of ability wielders caught by scientist), he got: ''[[KiManipulation pulverization]], {{telepathy}}'', and ''[[{{Intangibility}} permeation]]''.]]²** By episode 12 [[spoiler: (new timeline where Ayumi's has been saved), he got the ability as in episode 5, added with: ''[[TimeMaster time leap]]'' (though later it was disabled after one of his eyes damaged), ''collapse, {{invisibility}}, [[SuperSpeed teleport]], [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinesis]]'', and ''channeling''. Taken UpToEleven since he's planning to plunders ''all of ability wielders around the world'' to stop the psychic phenomenon.]]²* AmnesiacLover: [[spoiler:In the finale, Yuu keeps his promise to return to Nao, but he has lost all his memories about her.

It's even {{lampshaded}} by Nao at one point.²* AxCrazy: He becomes this as he falls into an intense sadness [[spoiler:after his sister dies. He enjoys only eating and happily beating the crap out of local gang members with a sadistic laughter.]] Yuu does get better with the help of Nao. But yet again he falls into this as he vows to [[spoiler:Plunder every ability in the world it ends up making him very violent and is prone to acting out in a rage. By the end of the series he's lost his memories but at least he's cured.]]²* BelligerentSexualTension: With Nao.²* BigBrotherInstinct: He might be annoyed by Ayumi sometimes, but he also deeply cares for her, as seen in episode 5 & 6 when he treated a sick Ayumi. [[spoiler:And much later in episode 6, after a [[TheReveal revealing]] scene involving Ayumi collapsing part of her school building, Yuu immediately searched for Ayumi in the middle of rubble, ignoring one of the teachers and Nao's warning about impending debris collapse.]]²* {{Bishonen}}: Exploits this as much as he can until he was caught by Nao at least.²* BreakTheHaughty: In the very first episode, his cheating gets exposed, he gets beaten up by Nao, he gets forcibly transferred to another school and the madonna of his school dumps him. ²* BrilliantButLazy: Considering that he was able to pull a RescueRomance that involved a near miss with a truck which involved pinpoint maneuvers with error meaning his intended rescue or him being extremely injured, he has to have some sort of smarts about him, he just chooses abusing his power over studying. Even while relying on his power to ace the exams, he's smart enough to realize that it isn't easy to identify who's an honors student (since students from several different schools take the exams), so he scouts out cram schools to find out who has the best chance of acing the test.²* BrokenAce: He's popular, charming, handsome, and a honor student. In reality, he's a selfish and manipulative {{Jerkass}} and a complete cheater.²* BystanderSyndrome: He just stands and watches as some bullies beat the crap out of Nao until it's over. ²* CatchPhrase: He often mentally snarks "another incomplete ability!" after learning about an ability's drawbacks.²* CheatersNeverProsper: Yu uses his ability to transfer his soul to another person to look at their answers on the test. This catches up with him after Nao catches him in the act repeatedly.²* ChickMagnet: Lots of girls wanted to date him, but he turned them all down, only to later get dumped by Yumi later due to new circumstances requiring him to attend a school faraway from her.²* CooldownHug: On the receiving end courtesy of [[spoiler: his brother Shunsuke]] in Episode 11, which proved to be necessary lest he [[spoiler: collapse the facility.]]²* CurbStompBattle:²** He dishes out a few of these in episode 7 after picking fights with various people.²** He does it again in episode 13 during his mission to seek out every ability user around the world, and is attacked by some hostile people. Unfortunately none of their attacks even hit him [[spoiler:thanks to his newfound powers as he strips people of them.]]²* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:Ayumi's death]] serves as a catalyst for turning Yuu's life upside down. He only gets better thanks to Nao. ²* DeadpanSnarker²* TheDreaded: He becomes this in episode 13, by all ability users ''around the world''. [[spoiler:Not only does he have many powers, he also is the only person with the ability to steal said powers]].²* DrunkWithPower: Zigzagged and discussed.²** Nao first approaches him to warn him about using his abilities for good instead of for selfish gains, lest he attract some unwanted attention from a certain organization that wants to use him as a lab rat. She later shows the aftermath of what happened to her brother who was in an insane asylum after having been experimented on. He reluctantly helps her student council to find other ability users to protect them, or at least get them to stop using their powers.²** He does start attempting to experiment with this in episode 7 against random thugs he picks fights with while suffering a HeroicBSOD and some SanitySlippage. Fortunately he's saved before really going off the deep end [[spoiler:by Nao, who was watching him the entire time. And in episode 10, it's further revealed that fortunately he was using his ability on ordinary people. Had he realized that he could steal other ability user's powers, he might have very well decided to abuse it and caught the attention of the scientists were it not for Nao.]]²** By Episode 13, the [[spoiler: massive number of powers he had accumulated so far]] almost led to the worst possible outcome, with him contemplating [[spoiler: ''world domination''.]]²* EmbarrassingNickname: [[spoiler:"The One-Eyed Grim Reaper," is this to him when he first hears it]].²* EvilCostumeSwitch: Twice.

In episode 13, he's wearing black robe hoodie jacket with dark red shirt after [[spoiler:his memories starts fading away and he's DrunkWithPower.]]²* {{Expy}}:²** To Lelouch vi Britannia from ''Anime/CodeGeass''. Both use their powers that light up their eyes to manipulate others, share a similar pose during their openings, are prone to giving evil laughs (that are often framed in the same way), and are highly protective of their sisters.²** Also to [[AxCrazy Light Yagami]] from ''Anime/DeathNote''. Both have the same evil grin, same way of laughing and are somewhat similar in appearance.²** To Kanie Seiya from ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark''. They're both similar in looks and personality, have the same voice actor, and have powers that give them glowing eyes.²* EyeScream: [[spoiler: He gets his right eye slashed by an enemy power-wielder during his attempt to save a kidnapped Tomori in Episode 11. This also prevents him from using his time leap - perhaps permanently.]]²* GlowingEyes: When he starts using his ability, his eyes glowing light green.²* AGodAmI: Yuu discusses this topic twice, once in episode 7, and again in episode 13. However, he doesn't do much beyond thinking about it, [[spoiler:the first time due to Nao intervening before he start really JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. And in the second instance, her notes gives him a vague reminder of ThePromise he made to her to return to Japan after stealing every ability user's powers and preventing their exploitation.]]²* GrandTheftMe: How he cheats in exams by copying the answers of the best students around to gain the upper hand in class. He also uses this to make others do what he wants to do to others without physically hurting his own hands. However, this only works for 5 seconds.²* HeroicBSOD: He suffers to this in episode 7 due to [[spoiler:Ayumi's death, though he gets better at the end of the episode thanks to Nao.]]²* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He starts wandering into JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope territory in episode 13, and starts going a little crazy due to his mission of finding ability users worldwide. [[spoiler:Fortunately he still has enough of a moral compass thanks to Nao's notes to fulfill his mission without killing anyone.]]²* {{Hikikomori}}: Temporarily becomes one for part of Episode 7 [[spoiler:due to his sister's death]].²* {{Irony}}: In episode 5, he comments about "Skyhigh Saito" being an embarrassing nickname, and in episode 7, he comments about giving a nickname to a thug he beats, as "One-Eyed Hoso-something". [[spoiler:In episode 13, he becomes (in)famous ''around the world'' as "One-Eyed Grim Reaper", a nickname he himself finds out to be embarrassing.]]²* {{Jerkass}}: Exploits his powers for his own personal and douchebaggery gains.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Through CharacterDevelopment.²* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler: It turns out that his memories were erased by someone named Maedomari. It only resurfaced through Sala's singing voice in Episode 9.]]²* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:Yuu attempts to stab one of the thug's right eye with wooden skewer as part of his intimidation to him in episode 7. In the new timeline in episode 11, his exact right eye [[EyeScream got slashed]] by another ability wielder.]]²* LoveConfession: [[spoiler: He (quite bluntly) confesses to Nao in Episode 12 after she suggests what Yuu can do to save all ability wielders]].²* ManipulativeBastard: Sure! Aside from his {{jerkass}}ery, he also loves to play with others by using his powers for his own selfishness.²* MindOverMatter: Picks up this ability later on. [[spoiler:It becomes incredibly useful for stopping bullets in episode 13.]]²* {{Nephewism}}: His parents got divorced, afterwards his mother left him and Ayumi in the care of their uncle and went who knows where.²* NewTransferStudent: Forced into this due to Nao knowing about his ability.²* NotSoDifferent: With Nao. [[spoiler: Both they and their siblings have special abilities, and tragedy has struck both of them, albeit in different ways.]]²* OneManArmy: Forced on him in episode 11 when a group of people target him. Also utilized in episode 13 [[spoiler:when he goes around the world stripping every ability user's powers to prevent their exploitation. And in some instances he delivers a CurbStompBattle to the more hostile groups he encounters.]]²* OnlySaneMan: He often comes off this way when dealing with his fellow student council members' and sister's eccentricities.²* PoseOfSupplication: When he uses his power, his body slumps forward in a humiliating pose where he's bent over on his knees, with his butt protruding upward.²* PowerParasite: [[spoiler:Episode 9 reveals Yuu's true ability is "Plunder", or ''stealing the abilities from others'', along with benefits and drawbacks of those abilities. In Episode 10, he uses it to take [[TimeMaster Shunsuke's ability]] to save Ayumi. And in episode 13, he uses this to steal every single ability user around the world to prevent their exploitation.]]²* PowerPerversionPotential: He used his powers to take over schoolgirls' bodies and peep at their underwear.²* RedBaron: [[spoiler: He becomes known as the One-Eyed Grim Reaper during his quest to plunder all the abilities in the world.]]²* ResignedToTheCall: Reluctantly joins Nao's group to find people with special abilities, or else his cheating would be exposed. [[spoiler:Later in episode 13, he only has a vague recollection of ThePromise he made with Nao to steal every ability user's powers to stop their exploitation.]]²* RippleEffectProofMemory: [[spoiler:He somehow manages to recover his memories from the original timeline. How he did this without his brother's time leap ability is never explained beyond the implication that [[AWizardDidIt Sala Shane's music has peculiar properties]].]]²* SamaritanRelationshipStarter: He at first just thinks of Nao as a bossy, annoying girl. After [[spoiler:he finds out she spent weeks watching over him after his sister died and she helps him get back on his feet]], he starts to see her in a new light and develops feelings for her.²* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler: His progress in his worldwide journey to strip off all ability wielders of their powers subjected him to greatly increasing levels of mental stress, to the point that he started causing unnecessary destruction, almost killed civilians, and even contemplated ''godhood''.]]²* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: He repeatedly denies being interested in Nao when Ayumi starts teasing him about the possibility of Nao being his girlfriend.²* SupernaturalGoldEyes: His eyes turn yellowish-gold when he uses his ability.²* SuperPowerMeltdown: [[spoiler: His stealing of Ayumi's collapse ability subjects him to be vulnerable to this, as proven in Episode 11. Twice.]]²* SuperpowerLottery: [[spoiler: He has had this all along. It turns out that his true ability is called 'plunder' and it works by [[PowerParasite stealing the powers of other people through his possession.]] Episode 10 reveals that he steals those powers ''permanently'', both for his victims and himself]].²* TookALevelInKindness: Starts out as a self-absorbed and manipulative {{Jerkass}}, but he slowly begins to show concern for others and becomes a more decent person. He temporarily backs away from this in episode 7, until Nao beats some sense into him. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Sala, who is comments that he was a nice person but is still able to tell that he wasn't always like that, despite having just met him.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Though he claims to absolutely hate it, Yuu likes Ayumi's rice omelettes, and will often eat it all while complaining about the odd sweet taste due to her pizza sauce. [[spoiler:Nao uses this to help bring him back after he runs away and starts risking his life by picking fights with strangers.]]²* VictoryGuidedAmnesia: Sure, he's able to [[spoiler:plunders every ability wielder around the earth, with the very high price: his memory about everyone around him.]]²* WalkingTheEarth: His ultimate fate. [[spoiler:He decides to traveling around the world to plunders ''every ability wielder on earth'' to stop the psychic wielder phenomenon before the titular comet appears again.]]²* WistfulAmnesia: The first time he hears the music of the band ZHIEND, he gets the strange feeling he has heard it before although he can't remember where. [[spoiler:Episode 9 reveals he used to hear their songs a lot in the original timeline before his brother traveled back in time.]]²* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: Narrowly averts this in the finale, despite his SanitySlippage]].²* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He doesn't like roller coasters and other high speed rides. Naturally, he has to spend the entire day at an amusement park at one point.²²!!Nao Tomori²!!!Voiced by: Creator/AyaneSakura (Japanese), Creator/LaurenLanda (English)²[[quoteright:194:]]²²The StudentCouncilPresident of Hoshinoumi Academy. She has the ability to make herself disappear, but this is limited to one person of her choosing at a time.²----²* BelligerentSexualTension: With Yuu.²* BerserkButton: Don't diss ZHIEND in her presence. And remember it's not a rock band, but a ''post-rock'' band.²* BigEater: Eats a lot. Even the sandwiches which weren't eaten by Yuu did not escape her.²* BigSisterInstinct: Towards Ayumi, also towards Iori Sekiguchi in OVA/special episode.²* BrokenBird: She promised herself to never trust anyone again after finding out her "friends" were children of the scientists experimenting on her brother.²* BullyMagnet: She's bullied and beaten by her classmates on regular basis.²* CameraFiend: She carries her video camera with her at all times. When a man punches her, she's more concerned about the fact that her camera might have been damaged. This later turns out to be because she wants to keep the camera to film a music video for ZHIEND, her brother's favorite band.²* CompositeCharacter: More or less of [[Anime/AngelBeats Yuri Nakamura and Kanade Tachibana]]; She displays the leadership skills and creativity of the former while retaining the melancholic air and FriendlessBackground of the latter.²* CryCute: The first and only time she's crying on screen is in episode 13, [[spoiler: when Yuu turns out to have forgotten everything about her.]]²* DarkAndTroubledPast: Episode 2 reveals that she had an older brother who had the ability to manipulate sound. Unfortunately he was experimented heavily on, and once he lost said ability, the scientists dumped him into a hospital where they'd have no more responsibility for him. As a result, Nao ran away before they could do the same thing to her.²* DamselInDistress: [[spoiler:In Episode 11, she gets kidnapped by some thugs to lure Yuu out.]]²* DeadpanSnarker: When she gets annoyed (often at Joujirou's obsession with Yusarin), her [[{{Keigo}} generally polite speech]] switches to Misa-levels of crude, masculine barbs.²* DefrostingIceQueen: At the start of the series, she greatly dislikes Yuu and how he abuses his powers. She slowly warms up to him over time as they become friends and support each other.²* DontYouDarePityMe: She snarks at Yuu's pity after he sees her brother's SanitySlippage, and later more bitterly when he expressed concern for her injuries only after [[BystanderSyndrome standing back and watching her get beaten up by a mob]]. ²* {{Expy}}: Just like Yuu has similarities with a certain ''Anime/CodeGeass'' character, Nao has her own in [[Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled Leila Malcal]]. Both resemble each other in terms of appearance and for being a leader of their respective groups.²* FanDisservice: In episode 11. [[spoiler:She's hanged unconsciously and in a beaten state only on her lingerie.]]²* {{Fangirl}}: Of the band ZHIEND.²* FreudianExcuse: She seems to be somewhat of a {{Jerkass}} when she first runs into Yu. But she later tells him that had she not found him before some scientists did, he would have been taken away, and experimented heavily on in order for them to learn about and exploit his power. She even takes him to see her brother, who was a victim in said experiments.²* FriendlessBackground: She was forced into this, after finding out her "friends" in the new middle school she transferred to with her older brother were children of the scientists experimenting on him. As a result, she found it hard to make friends and had trust issues.²* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: She snaps Yuu out of his HeroicBSOD in episode 7.²* GirlishPigtails: She ties her hair in twintails. ²* GoodIsNotNice: Nao's method of forcing Yuu to learn the errors of his ways for abusing his ability in the first episode is to beat him up and blackmail him into a HeelFaceTurn. This later gets [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] when Joujirou reveals that this wasn't the first time Nao resorted to these types of methods and none of her classmates actually ''like'' her because of it.²* GuileHeroine: In order to achieve her goals, she often cunningly manipulates others.²* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Usually wears her earphones to listen ZHIEND's songs from her [=MP3=] player. She's even wearing them while being beaten by a lot of girls in episode 5.²* IcyBlueEyes: Cool, aloof and calculating, just as Nao herself.²* {{Invisibility}}: A variation. She can only be invisible to those whom she wants her to be, and can only do it to one person at a time.²* InvisibleJerkass: She apparently has a habit of beating up people who annoy her while they can't see her. However, everyone but her current victim can see what she's doing, and she became quite unpopular as a result.²* IWillWaitForYou: [[spoiler: Part of ThePromise with Yuu.]] She also partially lampshades this trope during said promise.²-->'''Nao:''' "I'll say it. 'I'll be waiting.'"²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's bossy, self-righteous, indifferent and rude, but she's still a good person deep down.²* JerkassHasAPoint: Saying that Misa is already dead and that it's unnatural for her to still be channeled through her sister's body is a harsh thing to say to Misa's friends, but it's true. Misa herself knows this, [[spoiler:which is why after saying goodbye to her parents and leaving a letter behind to her sister, she allows Yuu to plunder her ability, ending her existence]].²* KickChick: Whenever she needs to beat someone up, she often incorporates kicks into them. [[spoiler:She literally kicks the sense out of Yuu when he was going downhill after Ayumi's death.]] ²* TheLeader: As Student Council President, she leads their missions to find ability users and talking them out of abusing their powers.²* MagicSkirt: Her modesty stays safe despite all the kicking. ²* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Nao seems to brush off the somewhat brutal beatdown she gets from some girls in episode 5. When Yu approaches her, she seems more interested in the fact that they have another student to find.²* MoralityChain: For Yuu, especially later in the show. [[spoiler:In the finale, it's thanks to the notes she made that Yuu doesn't develop a god complex and try to conquer the world after stealing so many powers.]]²* MysticalWhiteHair: She has grey hair and she's one of the people with special abilities.²* NiceHat: Wears a baseball cap in episode 4.²* NotSoDifferent: She tells Yu about her older brother who had an ability which then caused him to get experimented on to the point that it broke him. He then imagines that he and Ayumi would be in a very similar position had he of been caught by said scientists before Nao showed up.²* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In the special episode, Yuu is alarmed at how the normally dispassionate Nao '''''rages''''' at Honoka for [[spoiler:distancing herself from her supposed best friend Iori just so ''[[ItsAllAboutMe she]]'' won't suffer any emotional turmoil from Iori's impending illness, insisting that Honoka be there to comfort her while she still has the opportunity.]]²* ParentalAbandonment: She doesn't mention having a father, as her mother raised her and her brother. And she doesn't seem to trust her mother either anymore after being sold out to a group of scientists who then experimented on her brother to the point that his mind broke.²* PragmaticHero: She usually either blackmails or intimidates gifted children into either stopping the use of their powers for self gain or enrolling in Hoshinoumi Academy. However, she does it so they won't be captured and end up like her brother.²* SheCleansUpNicely: Yuu blushes the first time he sees her in casual girly clothes.²* StudentCouncilPresident: Despite being a first year student in high school. Joujirou later tells Yu that the student council isn't elected; rather, they're picked largely on who will use their ability the most. And considering Nao doesn't want anyone else with powers to suffer the same fate as her brother, she works hard to find said people and either get them to stop using their powers to prevent them from being captured and experimented on, or transfer them to her school to better protect them.²* ThroughHisStomach: In Episode 7, she tries to make Yuu feel better by cooking for him [[spoiler:one of the Ayumi's sweet rice omelettes]]. She succeeds.²* TownGirls: The Neither to Yusa's Femme and Misa's Butch.²* {{Tsundere}}: Harsh type. She usually has an arrogant and aloof personality, treating Yuu with indifference and disdain. There are moments in which she becomes nice to Yuu, showing she does care about him more than she lets on.²-->'''Yuu:''' Wait, didn't she hate me? Then why is she getting so friendly with me now?²* UnbrokenVigil:²** In episode 7, [[spoiler:it is revealed she uses her invisibility powers to watch over Yuu for weeks after Ayumi's death. She does not interfere until he threatens his own health with drugs and proceeds to finally bring him out of his HeroicBSOD.]]²** In episode 9, [[spoiler:she stays by Yuu's side at the hospital until he wakes up after he passes out during the ZHIEND concert.]]²** In episode 13, [[spoiler: she stays by Yuu's side at the hospital after he's completed his mission and his promise to her. Sadly, he lost all of his memories about her.]]²* WhenSheSmiles: The first time in anime Nao showing her truly cheerful expression is in episode 5, which makes Yuu that saw her smile blushing a bit.²²!!Joujirou Takajou²!!!Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroMizushima (Japanese), Creator/LucienDodge (English)²[[quoteright:176:]]²²A member of the student council. He can move at very fast speeds to make it appear as if he is teleporting, but he is not able to totally control where he stops, resulting in him being hospitalized and always having a new wound somewhere on his body. To counteract this, he has to wear protective gear under his school uniform.²----²* ClarkKentOutfit: Lampshaded by Yu, who comments that he's type that looks slimmer with his clothes on when the the two are bathing in episode 5.²* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has dark grey hair and eyes.²* {{Expy}}: To Takamatsu from ''Anime/AngelBeats''. They shared similar {{Megane}} looks, similar ripped body, similar personality, and same voice actor.²* FanBoy: Goes into fanboy mode when he hears about Yusa, a current pop idol.²* HeadDesk: When he sees his idol Yusa turning from cutesy girl to brash trash talker with her special power, Joujirou reacts by smashing his head into the wall which causes a small fountain of blood to spray out from his head.²* IronButtmonkey: He does wear some protection under his uniform to minimize the damage sustained when he's using his SuperSpeed power. But that said, he causes a lot of destruction every time he lands somewhere, and often has AmusingInjuries, such as bleeding profusely from his head in episode 2 due to crashing into some large glass windows in the cafeteria.²* LargeHam: He is usually composed most of the time but when he is triggered by the situation (particularly anything regarding Yusa), he tends to go over-the-top.²* {{Megane}}²* MundaneUtility: He uses his ability to buy some sandwiches without having to wait in line in the cafeteria. Unfortunately, with this method the sandwiches he grabs are random due to not having time to pick, and the resultant shock wave of his passage overturns every table in the vicinity. On top of that, Yuu mentions all the sandwiches are squashed as well.²* MusclesAreMeaningful: According to himself, the protector does not enough to protect his body from the side effect of his power, so he must shape his body ripped enough to withstand, or at least minimalize the damage.²* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: He adores the cutesy and girly Yusa and can't stand it when Yusa's vulgar and violent sister Misa possesses her body.²* PhraseCatcher: Always from Nao in regards to his fanboying of Yusa.²-->'''Nao:''' ''"Such a turn off!"''²* ShipperOnDeck: Along with Yusarin to Yuu and Nao.²* SuperSpeed: This guy could give ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} a run for his money, but unlike him, Joujirou doesn't have the same level of control. As such, after every use of his powers, he's left with a huge amount of wounds and lots of collateral damage.²²!!Yusa "Nishimori" Kurobane ²!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaayaUchida (Japanese), Creator/RyanBartley (English)²[[quoteright:254:]]²²A popular IdolSinger for the band How-Low-Hello, nicknamed "Yusarin". She is also a medium capable of channeling and/or conversing with the dead. The catch here is that she uncontrollably channels her deceased elder sister. She joins the student council after being transferred in the Hoshinoumi Academy.²----²* AlternateIdentityAmnesia: Yusa doesn't remember anything she does when Misa is in control.²* BigSisterWorship: Even though she admits that she and Misa are very different from each other, she talks about how she deeply admired Misa, and how Misa was always a very caring older sister to her.²* CloudCuckooLander: She seems to be a bit air-headed at times. This sharply contrasts with her sister Misa.²* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Responsible sibling to Misa's Foolish sibling, by virtue of not possessing her sister's more reckless tendencies.²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She has long blond hair and she's a sweet and adorable young girl.²* IdolSinger: As ''How-Low Hello''.²* InnocentBlueEyes: Her bright blue eyes indicates her naive and cheerful personality.²* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She isn't aware of her powers or that her sister often possesses her body. [[spoiler: Finds out in Episode 12 through a letter written to her from Misa.]]²* NiceGirl: The reason why she's relatively popular among her classmates. She's a kind and friendly girl at heart.²* NotSoDifferent: With Ayumi. Both are energetic younger siblings who loves their elder siblings and tried their best to always makes them happy, by [[spoiler: copying their mother's best recipe. Omelette rice with pizza sauce in Ayumi's case, cream stew in Yusa's case. Both of them also makes their respective elder siblings eat a lot of them and believes their respective meals can become sort of mood booster for them.]]²* RapunzelHair: It goes all the way down to her waist.²* ShipperOnDeck: Thinks Yu and Nao would make a cute couple.²* SiblingYinYang: With Misa.²* StageName: "Yusa Nishimori" is her stage name, her real name is Yusa Kurobane. Her agency changed her last name since they thought that it was not appropriate for an idol.²* TaremeEyes: She has big round eyes, going well with her cutesy IdolSinger image.²* ThirdPersonPerson: She refers to herself as "Yusarin". Nao once lowered her review score for Yusa's latest music video simply out of annoyance toward this habit.²* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Misa's Tomboy.²* TownGirls: The Femme to Misa's Butch and Nao's Neither.²* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A. She wears a pair of socks that reach up to her thighs.²²!!Misa Kurobane²!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaayaUchida (Japanese), Creator/RyanBartley (English)²[[quoteright:226:]]²²Yusa's older sister who died in an accident six months earlier, but is able to possess Yusa's body from time to time.²----²* BigSisterInstinct: She cares a lot about her sister and continues to watch over her after her death by possessing her body. She switched with Yusa when Yusa is about to do something unusual for her (such as bathing in a drum) and yielding to Yusa when she's about to do something comfortable (such as eating roasted corn and grilled fish). [[spoiler:Her farewell letter in episode 12 states that she loves Yusa more than anything and actually wanted to be with her forever.]]²* BlackSheep: In Episode 12, she says she had a troubled relationship with her parents. Despite that, when she briefly appears in Yusa's body, her parents say that they loved Misa.²* BrutalHonesty: [[spoiler:She declares her own parent's cooking to be nothing special on live TV... but continues eating it and ultimately proclaims it delicious simply because it has her parents' love put into it.]]²* CatchPhrase: Occasionally adds the word "sense" and its other variation into her casual sentences.²* ContraltoOfDanger: When she is in control, Yusa's high-pitched voice turns deeper to show Misa's nastiness.²* CoolBigSis: To Yusa. Even now, Yusa remembers Misa fondly as a great and caring sister that she looked up to.²* CryCute: [[spoiler:In episode 12, when she meets her parents to give them her last gratitude before leaving the world for real.]]²* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:In episode 12, she decides that now is the proper time to head out and tells Yuu to plunder her and Yusa's ability, which will leave her permanently dead.
