1[[center:[[WMG:''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' character index\˛[-[[Characters/SekireiIzumoInn Izumo Inn]] | [[Characters/SekireiMBI MBI]] | Participants of Sekirei Plan-]]]]]˛˛[[foldercontrol]]˛˛[[folder:General]]˛* BlessedWithSuck: Having a beautiful MagicalGirlfriend? Awesome. Having to watch her fight to the death against another MagicalGirlfriend, knowing the odds are stacked against you and losing means never seeing her again? Yeah, not so awesome. Little surprise that most Ashikabi are desperate to escape the Sekirei Plan.˛* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: Many Ashikabi experienced this in some form, prior to encountering their Sekirei. Minato and Haruka were both losers unable to find their place in the world, while Oosumi and Mikogami both experienced extreme boredom and acted out in an effort to fill that missing something. All Ashikabi find their purpose, and tend to undergo significant changes as people once bonding with their Sekirei. ˛* DevotedToYou: Sekirei are naturally devoted to their Ashikabi, to one degree or another. ˛* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: A Sekirei reacting to them tends to get.....''excited''. It makes for an interesting first impression. ˛* InterspeciesRomance: Almost all bonds are explicitly romantic in nature, and Sekirei often refer to their Ashikabi as their spouse.˛* AMagicContractComesWithAKiss: This is how they wing their Sekirei. ˛* MagicContractRomance: The majority of bonds are exactly this.˛* MagicKiss: Their main role in a battle is providing the kiss a Sekirei needs to activate their Norito.˛* NonActionGuy: The vast majority of Ashikabi are just normal people. Seo and Sanada are the exceptions, and readily ignore that whole "no Ashikabi fighting" rule. ˛* PunyEarthlings: Natsuo points out just ''how'' vulnerable Ashikabi are during a Sekirei battle, and how easy it would be for one to be killed by accident if they were in the wrong spot at the wrong time. ˛* RedStringOfFate: Each Sekirei has a destined Ashikabi, that they are meant to be with. Powerful Ashikabi are capable of attracting [[BattleHarem multiple]] Sekirei.˛* UnevenHybrid: Modern Ashikabi are the descendents of ancient Sekirei and their human masters, and are as a result not completely human.˛---- ˛[[/folder]]˛˛!Northern Territory˛-->See [[Characters/SekireiIzumoInn Izumo Inn]] character page˛˛!The Southern Territory˛----˛[[folder:General]]˛* InnocentCohabitation: Mikogami shares his mansion with nearly a dozen Sekirei, but all of his relationships with them are formed on platonic friendship.˛* TrueCompanions: Mikogami sees all of his Sekirei as his invaluable friends. The members of the faction are close like a family.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Hayato Mikogami]]˛!!Hayato Mikogami˛[[quoteright:150:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mikogami1_964.jpg]]˛->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunFukuyama (JP), Creator/ToddHaberkorn (EN)˛˛The Ashikabi of the South. A wealthy and spoiled teenager, he is known as a [[TheCollector collector of Sekirei]] and aggressively pursues any target that catches his interest. While extremely cunning and ruthless, he is also very childish and treats the Sekirei Plan like a very exciting game rather than a serious life-and-death conflict. Because of this, he tends to stick to the rules and will step in to prevent others from cheating. ˛˛'''Sekirei:''' Mutsu, Akitsu, Yomi, Mitsuha, Mitsuki, Taki, Himeko, Juusa, and Momo˛----˛* AbductionIsLove: Infamous for aggressively pursuing Sekirei, and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything forcefully]] winging them. It's unclear how many of his Sekirei were victims, but the trope is played straight in that they all seem genuinely fond of him. ˛* AdoptTheDog: Mikogami is a neutral character with morally questionable methods for gathering Sekirei, including the use of violence. Therefore, the flashback to him gently asking Akitsu to join his team and enjoy the "game" with him is one big PetTheDog moment.˛* AffectionateNickname: "Miko-sama", by most of his Sekirei. ˛* AmbiguouslyBi: Ignores his harem of [[BuxomIsBetter attractive]] female Sekirei, but expresses interest in whether the male one will react if "[[DoubleEntendre kissed]] [[FemaleGaze anywhere else]]".˛* AnimalMotifs: He's explicitly compared to an "abandoned dog" that Mutsu picked up.˛* AntiVillain: He's an antagonist to the protagonist group because they're in rival factions and he caused the mess with Kusano growing a forest to defend herself from being winged by him without consent early in the series, but his characterization in later chapters make clear Mikogami isn't evil. He's just a LonelyRichKid who sees the Sekirei Plan as his escape from his previous empty life, not fully understanding what should be wrong with eliminating rival Sekirei or winging Sekirei by force because it's all "part of the game". Also, unlike Higa, Mikogami respects the rules and actually cares for his Sekirei as his friends because he finally stopped feeling lonely thanks to them.˛* ApatheticStudent: At school, he was bored out of his mind because he already finished his ''college'' education back in America. This is one of the reasons why he was all for joining the Sekirei Plan when Mutsu found him.˛* AscendedFanboy: An avid gamer playing a real life game. He's the only one thrilled whenever [[BigBad Minaka]] announces some new rule or twist.˛* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: His Sekirei note his tendency to be easily distracted by anything new, interesting, or rare. ˛* BenevolentBoss: Despite his [[AbductionIsLove questionable methods]] for gathering Sekirei, Mikogami treats his Sekirei very well, considers them his important friends, and provides them a good life at his mansion. His response to Mitsuha's termination is to immediately fret over Akitsu and then order everyone to be careful.˛* BigFancyHouse: A western-styled mansion, filled with his collection of PrettyFreeloaders. ˛* {{Bishonen}}: Hikari and Hibiki even comment on his looks, as one of the ''many'' things about the Southern Sekirei that make them jealous. ˛* BlitheSpirit: His stated intention if he were to win, as he considers the world too restricting and unexciting. ˛* BoomerangBigot: Despite being human himself, Mikogami hates humans for being so shallow and dishonest. He thinks Sekirei are much better friends than humans ever could be because they have cool powers and are unquestionably loyal to their Ashikabi.˛* BrattyHalfPint: He's much younger than the other Ashikabi, and seems to actively attempt to get on their nerves. ˛* BreakingTheFourthWall: In an otherwise ordinary side story, he yells at the narration to shut up. ˛* BreakTheHaughty: [[spoiler: He goes into his match with Sanada confident, but quickly finds himself helplessly watching his Sekirei get slaughtered in rapid succession]]. ˛* CharacterizationMarchesOn: At first, he's [[ObviouslyEvil ruthless and cruel]] with his FaceFramedInShadow. Subsequent appearances portray him to be extremely cunning, but also [[{{Keet}} hyperactive]] and easily distracted by anything he considers exciting. ˛* ClassicVillain: In his first appearance. Later on, not so much.˛* ClassyCravat: He wears an elegant cravat as part of his rich boy getup.˛* ClosetKey: Similar to Homura and Minato, Mutsu was expecting a female Ashikabi only for the one who he was drawn to turning out to be a boy. Subverted since Mutsu doesn't feel any romantic or sexual attraction for Mikogami, acting as a mixture of a bodyguard and caretaker instead.˛* TheCollector: His reputation proceeds him as a collector of Sekirei. ˛* CompulsorySchoolAge: Even though he already has a college degree at fifteen, his parents still sent him to school under the excuse that he needed to try making friends around his age.˛* TheDandy: He's a rich boy with a very elegant fashion sense.˛* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: He states that prior to meeting Mutsu, his life was empty and he always longed for "something amazing" to happen to him.˛* DitzyGenius: He's book smart, and able to outwit adults.....but he's also got ZERO common sense.˛* EveryoneHasStandards: He expresses disgust at how Higa treats his Sekirei like disposable things, and wonders if he actually ''hates'' them. Mikogami also makes clear he hates scheming cheaters like Higa and he intends beating Minato in the game fair and square.˛* FairPlayVillain: Generally, he considers it important to stick to the rules of the Sekirei Plan. This brings him into direct opposition with the East, since Higa continually [[LoopHoleAbuse cheats]]. ˛* FreudianExcuse: His relationship with his parents is....poor at best. His parents' treatment made him feel like he had no control over his own life, leaving him deeply resentful of the world and terrified of further abandonment. As a result, he calls his defeated Sekirei "useless" and claims to hate them, since they abandoned him.˛* FriendlessBackground: He never got along with the students at the school his parents sent him to. During his battle with Sanada, he describes his Sekirei as the only friends he's ever had.˛* GottaCatchThemAll: Approaches the Sekirei Plan like a game of Pokemon. ˛-->'''Mikogami''': ''It's a natural element! It's fire! It's rare! I want one!''˛* GradeSkipper: He's only fifteen years old, but he already finished ''college'' at America.˛* HappilyAdopted: He's a neglected kid who was "picked up" by Mutsu who since then has acted as his unofficial guardian and babysitter.˛* HatesBeingAlone: Before the Sekirei Plan, he was bored and lonely because his parents were always busy with work and his peers envied him for being rich. So, he's filled his home with as many Sekirei as possible. He hates losing his Sekirei because he's afraid of being left alone again and makes Mutsu promise to never abandon him.˛* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mutsu, his first Sekirei. They're a rare same-sex Ashikabi-Sekirei pair, but their relationship doesn't have a single romantic or sexual hint in it. Yet, they share one of the strongest bonds in the series.˛* HiddenDepths: Easily one of the most complex characters in the series. ˛* HowDareYouDieOnMe: His anger towards his terminated Sekirei is actually this, as he states they abandoned him.˛* IJustWantToHaveFriends: This is his real reason for winging as many Sekirei as he can. Mikogami could never make any human friends, so he wants to be surrounded by Sekirei who love him and never leave him.˛* ImprobableAge: He's already a college graduate at the age of 15.˛* InnocentProdigy: Despite being intelligent enough to finish college at fifteen, Mikogami is still an excitable teenager who yearns for loyal friends and needs Mutsu to babysit him.˛* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: And he cites his intelligence as one of the reasons he could never make friends.˛* ItsAllAboutMe: He's fairly self-centered, and primarily concerned with his own enjoyment of the "Game". ˛* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Arrogant, bratty, and utterly ruthless when it comes to getting what he wants. He's prone to insulting rival Ashikabi, and considers most people stupid. He has more redeeming qualities than it seems at first glance, though. He truly cares about his Sekirei and considers them his only true friends. He's also a fair player who won't forgive those who cheat like Higa.˛* JumpedAtTheCall: He's an enthusiastic participant in the Sekirei Plan, having ''finally'' gotten the chance to live a more exciting life.˛* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: He seems to have escaped punishment for the attack on Takami, possibly because this allowed the "Green Girl" game to occur. However, his karma eventually does catches up to him later on. [[spoiler: Sanada's ''real'' AmazonBrigade slaughter almost all his Sekirei in a matter of moments, with Akitsu sacrificing herself to defeat them]]. ˛* {{Keet}}: Veers into this on occasion, especially when something exciting happens.˛* LastNameBasis: His butler is the only one who calls him by his personal name, Hayato.˛* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Akitsu. She was a Sekirei who was called a failure and discarded for not being able to be winged by an Ashikabi. When she was sad and alone, Mikogami happily asked her to be his Sekirei even though he can't wing her, which gave her a reason to live. Akitsu calls Mikogami her home and would do anything to protect him, [[spoiler:even sacrificing herself for him near the end of the game]].˛* LonelyRichKid: While he's rich and can have pretty much any material goods he wants, he was ignored by his parents, and completely friendless until he met Mutsu.˛* ManOfWealthAndTaste: His first few appearances suggest this, but it's quickly blown out the window when it's revealed he's simply a bratty teenager.˛* MoralMyopia: He's not above crossing lines to get what he wants, such as attacking other Ashikabi in his quest to obtain a new Sekirei. However, he reacts poorly to slights against him, even ordering Mutsu to take care of Yukari after she hits him. ˛* NiceJobBreakingItHero: "''I broke the ship!''" [[spoiler: The ship was damaged during his match against Sanada, allowing a military force to launch an invasion of Kamikura Island]]. ˛* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The In-Between to Minato's Nice and Higa's Mean. Mikogami is very much a SpoiledBrat who is not above attacking people to get his way and winging Sekirei by force after cornering them. Despite that, he treats his Sekirei as his friends and equals, hating when they get hurt or terminated because he doesn't want to lose them. He also wants to win the Sekirei Plan while playing by the rules and will step in to stop cheaters like Higa from ruining the game.˛* NonActionGuy: He ''claims'' to know "self-defense". He doesn't. ˛* OffToBoardingSchool: It's mentioned that his parents punished him for acting up in the past by sending him to [[MinorLivingAlone live by himself]] in America for a while. This seems to have been their version of grounding him. ˛* ParentalNeglect: He states his parents have always ignored him, other than when he got into trouble or proved useful in raising their status. They threatened to send him off to live alone on the other side of the planet ''again'' if he misbehaves a second time.˛* PleaseDontLeaveMe: In Chapter 116, he grabs Mutsu's scarf and asks him if he won't ever leave him while giving him the PuppyDogEyes.˛* PragmaticVillainy: He sends some of his Sekirei as reinforcements to help Minato's Sekirei during Higa's attack to Izumo Inn during the fourth round. It's not that Mikogami likes helping Minato; if Higa's Sekirei make the mistake of pushing [[WorldsStrongestWoman Miya]] to join the battle, the game will be instantly over and that won't be any fun for Mikogami.˛* PrincelyYoungMan: The SpoiledBrat type, although a sympathetic one. He's very wealthy, dresses elegantly, and his Sekirei treat him like their adored prince.˛* PuppyDogEyes: Described by Mutsu as his "abandoned dog" expression. It is super-effective against him. ˛* TheRedBaron: "Mikogami of the South", in acknowledgement of his control of the southern portion of the city.˛* RichBoredom: Expresses that he hated his dull and uneventful life, prior to joining the Sekirei Plan.˛* TheRival: While all of the Ashikabi are in competition with each other, he tends to be Minato's most direct and consistent opponent. He also possesses a fairly strong moral code and is willing to work alongside Minato in more dangerous situations, making the two of them have a much more cordial relationship compared to most other Ashikabi.˛* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Mutsu's Manly Man. Mikogami is the pampered and easily lonely PrincelyYoungMan as well as a NonActionGuy, in contrast to his stoic swordsman Sekirei.˛* ShooTheDog: When his Sekirei are getting mercilessly eliminated by Sanada's Sekirei, Mikogami tells Akitsu that she's free to run away since she's not really his Sekirei and doesn't have to fight for him anymore. While she initially fears that she's being discarded again, he makes it clear that isn't the case; he just doesn't want to lose more of his dear friends. However, Akitsu still chooses to stay and protect her master.˛* SoreLoser: He ''hates'' losing.˛* SpoiledBrat: The "lavished with material goods in place of affection" variant. ˛* StalkerWithoutACrush: His method for recruiting rare Sekirei he wants, such as Kusano and Shiina, is sending his Sekirei after them and then trying to forcibly wing them to add them to his collection.˛* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: He delivers an extremely effective one to Higa. He berates Higa about the way he treats Sekirei like disposable tools and is taking the fun out of the "game" with his dirty tactics instead of letting the Sekirei help him find a chance to free himself from the restrictive society. He also makes Higa see that the real reason why he's attacking Minato's group is because he's jealous of Minato, although Mikogami doesn't believe that's a bad motivation to compete with a rival as long as Higa starts playing fairly. ˛* TsurimeEyes: To match his temperamental personality. ˛* VillainousRescue: Rescues Minato and his Sekirei when they're ambushed by [[spoiler: Uzume]], forcing her to retreat. He later shows up during the assault on Izumo Inn, sending Mutsu to protect Miya and eventually forcing Higa to retreat after lecturing him on his failure as an Ashikabi.˛* WalkingTheEarth: In chapter 184, he winds up searching the world for clues about Sekirei, joined by a large group of his own Sekirei. He is shown to be happier than ever, as he gets to live out his dreams of adventure.˛----˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Mutsu]]˛!!Mutsu (Sekirei #05)˛[[quoteright:150:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mutsu_2536.jpg]]˛->'''Voiced by:''' Daisuke Matsubara (JP), Creator/RobertMcCollum (EN)˛˛A reserved and [[StraightMan serious]] swordsman, as well as one of the few male Sekirei. He is one of the founding members of the Disciplinary Squad, and now serves as the bodyguard for the Ashikabi of the South, Mikogami. More often than not, he serves as a voice of reason and attempts to keep his master out of harm's way, a duty that has thus far kept him out of battle. He is noted by his former allies as being a difficult person to get to know, but is deeply devoted to his young master and turns out to be surprisingly kind, even to his enemies. ˛˛'''Ashikabi:''' Hayato Mikogami ˛----˛* AbsoluteCleavage: A male example.˛* AdoptTheDog: An in-universe example: [[spoiler: Miya]] expresses surprise at him settling down after being emerged. Mutsu even describes it as losing to Mikogami's "abandoned puppy" expression.˛* AloofAlly: Veers into this when interacting with the original Disciplinary Squad. ˛* {{Bishonen}}: Tall, handsome, thin as a rail. ˛* BlitheSpirit: He answered Mikogami's wish to meet someone amazing who would change his boring life forever.˛* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: ''Earth of my pledge, spread to protect the territory of my Ashikabi!''˛* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Mutsu is Mikogami's bodyguard and caretaker, whether it's keeping him from starting fights they can't win or lecturing him about his bed time.˛* DishingOutDirt: The Sekirei of Earth, powerful enough that Mikogami considers him a game-breaker. [[spoiler: He uses his LimitBreak to ''raise new islands'' from the ocean floor, stabilizing the ship in the process]]. ˛* FirstFriend: By becoming Mikogami's first Sekirei, he also became the first friend the LonelyRichKid ever had.˛* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mikogami. Mutsu wanted to have a female Ashikabi and unlike Homura, he never shows romantic or sexual attraction for his male Ashikabi, as seen when he's ''not'' happy about having to kiss another guy for his Norito. Still, Mutsu is Mikogami's loyal right-hand man and protector who is always by his side.˛* KatanasAreJustBetter: Though he rarely draws it, using the scabbard instead.˛* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Usually by carrying Mikogami off before he can do something foolish.˛* LeanAndMean: Subverted. A tall, thin antagonist in black.....who turns out to be a pretty nice guy without any malicious intentions. He, along with Akitsu, are the only Southern Sekirei that aren't {{Jerkass}}es. ˛* MasterSwordsman: Though he rarely draws it, the anime shows him to be able to take on Karasuba and live. ˛* MrFanservice: ArtEvolution has resulted in greater focus being given to just how low his shirt hangs open, and how chiseled his abs are.˛* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Blows open a hole in the ship's hull, disabling the defense system for Kamikura Island. This allows a military force to launch an invasion of the island]]. ˛* NiceShoes: His geta.˛* TheNicknamer: He has ''several'' unflattering nicknames for Matsu and Kazehana.˛* NobleTopEnforcer: He's honorable and actually quite kind, though fully devoted to his Ashikabi no matter how much of a SpoiledBrat he is.˛* OlderThanHeLooks: He appears the same age as most Sekirei, but he was fully grown when even Homura was still an infant.˛* TheOneGuy: He's the only male Sekirei on Mikogami's faction and the original Disciplinary Squad. His [[WithFriendsLikeThese experience]] with [[BewareTheNiceOnes the]] [[LovableSexManiac other]] [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl members]] leads him to express his sympathy to [[StraightMan Homura]]. ˛* OneManArmy: During his days in the Disciplinary Squad, he decimated dozens of tanks with a single attack.˛* OnlySaneMan: He's relatively calm and reasonable, in contrast to his many overly emotional and childish companions.˛* ParentalSubstitute: Unlike other Sekirei, Mutsu behaves like Mikogami's parent figure rather than a lover. Mikogami even calls him out on how Mutsu acts like he was his mom.˛* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: He gives Akitsu a piece of clothing to cover her chest after her kimono was torn [[spoiler:in her fight against Sanada's second Sekirei trio]].˛* {{Samurai}}: Heavily invokes this aesthetic, being a noble MasterSwordsman devoted to a wealthy master.˛* SarcasticDevotee: He frequently complains about Mikogami, but is willing to kill for him in a heartbeat. The only orders he won't carry out are the ones that [[KnowWhenToFoldEm will endanger]] Mikogami.˛* ScarfOfAsskicking: He wears a yellow scarf around the neck and being one of the first five Sekirei makes him one of the most powerful.˛* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Mikogami's Sensitive Guy. Mutsu is a powerful swordsman who doesn't show much emotion, in contrast to his childish and spoiled NonActionGuy Ashikabi.˛* ServileSnarker: He's quick to call his Ashikabi Mikogami on his [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny mistakes]].˛* ShockwaveStomp: Uses his [[SwordPlant scabbard]] to smash the ground, suggesting that he may have [[DishingOutDirt earth-related]] powers.˛* TheStoic: He never loses his cool and his default facial expression is a distant gaze.˛* SugarAndIcePersonality: Though normally distant and cold, he reveals gentler side to himself towards Mikogami who he cares deeply about.˛* SuperPrototype: He's one of the super powerful first five Sekirei models who were given special adjustments by Takehito. ˛* {{Tsundere}}: He generally acts like an annoyed babysitter towards Mikogami, but faithfully recognizes him as his Ashikabi.˛* WouldntHitAGirl: He states he's got no interest in killing girls. This ''would'' put him at a serious disadvantage, since almost all Sekirei are female......but his strength means he rarely has to fight seriously. ˛* YouAreNumberSix: #05˛----˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Akitsu]]˛!!Akitsu (Discarded Number[[spoiler:/Sekirei #07]])˛[[quoteright:150:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akitsu_4614.jpg]]˛->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuuKobayashi (JP), Jenny Jaffe (EN)˛˛A Sekirei that was discarded, after her tuning failed. She is not considered officially part of the Sekirei Plan, but considers Mikogami her master after he took her in. Quiet and subdued, she often forgets to wear her underwear but is one of Mikogami's most trusted and powerful Sekirei alongside Mutsu.˛˛'''Ashikabi:''' Hayato Mikogami (unofficially)˛----˛* AbsoluteCleavage: The front of her kimono is almost completely open, exposing most of her breasts.˛* AdaptationDyeJob: She has white hair in the manga as opposed to the melon hair color from the anime.˛* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: While the MBI scientists deemed her a disposable failure, Mikogami saw the value in her "rareness" and took her in as his Sekirei even though he can't officially become her Ashikabi. That's why Akitsu swore loyalty to him.˛* BloodSplatteredInnocents: Escaped MBI wearing nothing but a lab coat and a man's shirt, splattered in blood. [[TheDogBitesBack It was not her own blood]].˛* BrokenAngel: She was deemed a failed product of the Sekirei Plan because her modifier messed up and her Sekirei crest is on her forehead instead of her back, meaning she can never be winged by an Ashikabi. [[spoiler:Near the end of the series, Akitsu can finally be winged through the miracle of ThePowerOfLove.]]˛* BrokenBird: Being rejected as a failure by MBI's scientists made her nearly emotionless. She's terrified Mikogami could throw her away too if she ever fails him, but fortunately her master cares about his Sekirei too much to ever do that.˛* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: [[spoiler: ''This is the ice of my pledge.... shatter the misfortunes of my Ashikabi!'']]˛* ChainedByFashion: She wears a chain around her neck and uses it to hold her kimono shut. [[spoiler: It shatters just prior to her finally being emerged]].˛* TheChampion: She lives for her Ashikabi, and for her fellow Southern Sekirei. ˛* CombatPragmatist: She's very practical, using her environment and powers to her advantage. She also knows when to bow out of a hopeless battle. ˛* DarkChick: Humble and soft-spoken, in contrast to Mikogami's many loud, obnoxious Sekirei. She's also a LadyOfBlackMagic as opposed to his many weapon users.˛* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler:She declares her love for Mikogami, who has become her official Ashikabi, and asks him to take care before she uses a suicide attack to terminate Nishi's deadly Sekirei trio.]]˛* ElementalHairColors: In the manga, she has white hair to go along with her ice powers.˛* ElementalRivalry: Due to being an [[AnIcePerson ice-type]] Sekirei, she fights the [[PlayingWithFire fire-type]] Homura when he confronts Mikogami's group. Amusingly, Homura complains that their fight can't really go anywhere when their elemental attacks only cancel each other.˛* EmotionlessGirl: She has a calm, seemingly-emotionless demeanor.˛* EtherealWhiteDress: She evokes the classic image of a Japanese ghost, clad in a white kimono and surrounded by a supernatural chill.˛* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Before she sacrifices herself to protect Mikogami, she smiles to her master for the first time.]]˛* FacialMarkings: The Sekirei crest is on her forehead, rather than on her back.˛* FateWorseThanDeath: She can never be emerged, the very thing all Sekirei are born to experience. She seems resigned to this, but expresses that she is jealous of Homura because it's a possibility for him.˛* FreakinessShame: How Mikogami won her over. When she protested that as a Scrapped Number, she was broken and worthless, he stated it didn't matter....and instead made her special and rare. ˛* GoingCommando: It's usually only because she forgets to wear panties, not necessarily by choice.˛* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:She performs a suicide attack to save Mikogami and Mutsu from Sanada's deadly Sekirei trio.]]˛* IJustWantToBeLoved: Akitsu's main wish is to find someone who will love and care for her. ˛* IOweYouMyLife: When she had lost all hope in life because she could never have an Ashikabi, Mikogami gave her a home and companions. Even though she isn't officially his Sekirei, she would even die to protect her master who saved her. [[spoiler:And in the end, she does terminate herself to protect him.]]˛* AnIcePerson: She has the power to create ice.˛* ImpossiblyLowNeckline: Her kimono is barely held closed by her obi and chains.˛* KillingInSelfDefense: She apparently killed her modifier when he blamed her for Takami firing him and tried to strangle her to death.˛* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Knows when to retreat from a fight which Mitsuha didn't.˛* LadyOfBlackMagic: A graceful fighter using her elemental powers. ˛* LimitBreak: [[spoiler: Hishoku (''Ice Erosion'')]]˛* LuckySeven: [[spoiler: Subverted. She was originally Sekirei #7, but her modifications went wrong and she was discarded as a failure.]]˛* MarkOfShame: The location of her crest marks her as a Discarded Number. [[spoiler: It vanishes when the strength of her feelings make emergence possible.]] ˛* TheQuietOne: She rarely speaks, and when she does, her voice remains soft. ˛* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her reaction to Homura seeing she isn't wearing panties is an indifferent "Oh, forgot to put them on."˛* TheStoic: Her facial expression very rarely changes from a melancholic and distant gaze.˛* SugarAndIcePersonality: Beneath her cool exterior, she's actually kind and gentle. These glimpses primarily show when interacting with her companions. ˛* SuperpowerMeltdown: [[spoiler: Being emerged and using her Norito causes her to overload.]]˛* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Terminates Chiyo, Hatae, and Yuna with her Norito, overloading herself in the process]].˛* TragicIceCharacter: She's the only Sekirei with ice powers and she was unfortunately discarded of the Sekirei Plan because her Sekirei crest didn't appear on her back. Her modifier was fired from the project for ruining a Sekirei and he tried to kill her, but she managed to escape and wandered on the streets until Mikogami took her in.˛* TrueCompanions: She feels this way about her comrades, and it seems the feeling may be mutual. ˛* UndyingLoyalty: Despite being discarded, she's ever loyal to her would-be Ashikabi.˛* WhiteHairBlackHeart: In the manga at least, Akitsu is depicted of having white hair but she's far from evil and just followed Mikogami's orders.˛* YouAreNumberSix: [[spoiler: #07]]˛----˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Yomi]]˛!!Yomi (Sekirei #43)˛[[quoteright:128:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/126175_5303.jpg]]˛->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KanaUeda (JP), Creator/KristiKang (EN) ˛˛One of Mikogami's many Sekirei, sent to capture #108.

None of his Sekirei are capable of getting along, have poor communication with each other and do not work well together in a fight. ˛* EvilCounterpart: To Minato's own group of Sekirei. While Higa's group are largely dysfunctional due to his cruel behavior, Minato and his group are TrueCompanions who love each other like family. Higa has nearly twice as many Sekirei while Minato has 6. Higa and his Sekirei won't hesitate to cheat or blackmail others to do his bidding, while Minato and his fight honorable and value fairness. Higa's Sekirei do not fight well together while the teamwork with Minato's are near flawless in combat. Higa has his family's company and is rich, while Minato's group just struggles to get by at the Izumo Inn. Due to Higa's LackOfEmpathy, his Sekirei's strength is held back because of his poor bond with them, while Minato's [[ThePowerofLove undying love]] for his Sekirei makes them extremely powerful and usually defeat Higa's in combat. Higa's Sekirei are afraid of him due to their fear of failing him, while Minato's are completely devoted to and love him with all their heart. [[spoiler: Upon the series end, almost half of Higa's Sekirei leave him due to secretly hating him, while Minato's stay loyally by his side and are HappilyMarried to him upon Musubi's return from Kouten.]]˛* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler: After Kouten is gone, many of Higa's Sekirei, who have been revived thanks to Musubi, understandably leave him due to the cruel behavior he did to them and how he forced them to be winged by him. The only ones who stayed are the more loyal ones and due to seeing him trying to be better them them afterwards.]]˛* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Higa's Sekirei do not work well together, largely due to their fear of failing him. It's also largely due to their tendency to rely on underhanded tactics that leads to their defeat at the hands of Minato's group.˛* YouHaveFailedMe: Any time one of Higa's Sekirei fail him, he either leaves them behind or seriously hurts them as punishment. Mikogami himself even wonders if Higa even hates his Sekerei for his abuse towards them. ˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Izumi Higa]]˛!!Izumi Higa˛[[quoteright:150:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/higa_4194.jpg]]˛->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakumaTakewaka (Season 1), Creator/JunichiSuwabe (Season 2) (JP), Creator/JerryJewell (EN)˛˛The Ashikabi of the East, and the head of a powerful pharmaceutical company. He is extremely ambitious, cunning, and ruthless to the point that he treats his own Sekirei as disposable tools. Using his influence, he blackmails Uzume into serving him and bribes other Ashikabi into serving him. He opposes the Sekirei Plan, and seeks to undermine [[MegaCorp MBI's]] authority. ˛˛'''Sekirei:''' Toyotama, Ichiya, Oriha, Katsuragi, Shi, Sai, Kaie, Oshino, Kujou, Kaiha, and two unnamed. ˛----˛* AbductionIsLove: He is one of the Ashikabi that [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything forcefully]] wings Sekirei, though he makes it clear love isn't even on the table. He also [[spoiler: kidnaps Yukari and intends to marry her]]. It doesn't work out as he'd planned.˛* AmbitionIsEvil: He's by far the most ambitious character, and [[KickTheDog kicks many a dog]] along the way towards his goal. ˛* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: He holds Yukari hostage, while proposing marriage to her. It is, of course, all a plot to take advantage of who her parents are. When Yukari realizes how stupid the whole situation is, she sets fire to his penthouse and smashes a window so she and Shiina escape.˛* AppealToForce: Prompted by Mikogami's [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech harsh advice]], uses his Sekirei to perform a hostile takeover of his family's company. ˛-->'''Higa:''' ''I'm taking over this company by force. Tell that to the old farts. From now on, I do as I want.''˛* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Receives several from Mikogami during his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. It forces him to completely re-evaluate his methods and leads to a PetTheDog moment and the hostile takeover of his company. ˛* BadBoss: Treats his Sekirei as {{Mooks}}, making it clear that they are completely disposable to him. [[spoiler: Toyotama's defeat seems to have made him finally realize his failings as an Ashikabi.]]˛* {{Bishonen}}: Yukari felt charmed by his pretty boys looks the first time they meet.˛* BodyguardBabes: Toyotama and Ichiya often act as his bodyguards. ˛* CheatersNeverProsper: Higa engages in a variety of schemes to defeat MBI and Minato, including blackmailing Uzume [[spoiler: and Shiina]] into working for him, kidnapping [[spoiler: Yukari with the intention of forcing her to marry him]], and stealing the Jinki from others. This eventually leads [[FairPlayVillain Mikogami]] to [[EnemyMine step in]], as well as triggering his VillainousBreakdown after [[spoiler: Minato's team rescues Chiho, terminates four of his Sekirei, Uzume betrays him, ''and'' Yukari sets fire to his penthouse before escaping with Shiina]]. Even though he's one of the last Ashikabi standing, he's completely outmatched by the others and has essentially lost all his former edge. ˛* ConsummateLiar: Deception is one of his favorite tools, and he plays his various pawns like fiddles. ˛* CombatPragmatist: He's so dirty he won't hesitate to hold others as hostage so long as he can win at anything. ˛* CorporateWarfare: His company is TheRival to the primary company, and counters their actual private army with an army of Sekirei. ˛* CorruptCorporateExecutive: To the t. ˛* DiabolicalMastermind: He tries to be this, but is ultimately out-witted by various parties. ˛* EvilCannotComprehendGood: He views his Sekirei as pawns for his ambitions and is unable to understand why Minato would care for his to the point he'd put his life on the line to protect them. In his eyes, he finds it unprofessional to be on the front lines and would have his Sekirei do his work for him. ˛* EvilCounterpart: To Minato. As while Minato struggles with money half the time and is trying to get by, Higa owns his family's company and is very wealthy. Minato has a total of 6 Sekirei, while Higa has nearly twice as many. Minato's Sekirei are all very powerful largely due to their strong bond and how much they care for each other due to Minato's love for them, Higa's are held back due to his LackOfEmpathy and due to his cruel behavior and using them to further his ambitions and they lose against Minato's group quite often. Minato is usually timid but is a kind and selfless man, Higa is cold, cruel and selfish who only seems to care about himself more than anything.˛* FauxAffablyEvil: He usually introduces himself in a very polite manner, often seeming like a reasonable and friendly individual. But he quickly drops this, in favor of showing just how ruthless and cruel he can be.˛* GracefulLoser: Implied, surprisingly enough. While he doesn't have any lines in the final chapters, he seemingly abandons all thoughts of vengeance against Minato, and seemingly starts running his company honestly and above board.˛* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: He greatly resents Minato, convinced that the other has benefited so much from his father's position as Gamemaster. Even when he learns Minato was unaware of his father's identity and obtained everything through his own efforts, he actually hates him more]]. ˛* HumiliationConga: Goes into a board meeting. Comes out to learn [[spoiler: four of his Sekirei have been terminated, his hostage has been rescued, his blackmailed assassin has been terminated, and to top it off? The girl he'd kidnapped with the intention of forcing her to marry him has set fire to his penthouse before escaping.]] He's understandably less than pleased by the news. ˛* IControlMyMinionsThrough: He keeps his Sekirei under his thumb by forcibly winging them and [[YouHaveFailedMe discarding of them if they ever become useless to him]]. This ultimately backfires on him because it's his abusive and uncaring treatment of his Sekirei what keeps them weak since Sekirei gain their strength from ThePowerOfLove. ˛* IHaveYourWife: He holds Chiho and Yukari hostage to force their Sekirei to do his bidding.˛* IWillFindYou: [[spoiler: Promises a defeated Toyotama that he will come for her someday, and asks her to wait for him.]]˛* {{Jerkass}}: Readily uses other people to accomplish his own goals, using Chiho's life to force Uzume to do his bidding and subjecting his own Sekirei to all manner of emotional abuse.˛* KickTheDog: His manipulating of Shiina and Uzume to do his bidding holding their loved ones hostage is nothing short of deplorable. ˛* LastNameBasis: Everyone calls him by his last name.˛* LoopholeAbuse: During the 3rd Phase of the Sekirei plan when he brings in more Sekirei and claims it's not breaking the rules so long as they don't fight.˛* MagneticHero: A villainous example. He regularly recruits other Ashikabi, often through his claimed goal of ending the Sekirei Plan and allowing all his followers to remain with their Sekirei. He's.....telling the truth about the first part, at least. ˛* ManipulativeBastard: What he does to poor Uzume and then to Shiina.˛* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Oh, so very much. He's got the nice suit, the penthouse apartment, and the CoolCar to prove how wealthy he is. ˛* MeddlingParents: His family, as the senior board members of his company, ''constantly'' get in his way. This comes to a head when he's dragged into a meeting with them, and comes out to a HumiliationConga. He's beyond furious and declares his intention to kill them all someday. ˛* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The Mean to Minato's Nice and Mikogami's In-Between. Higa is a {{Jerkass}} to Ashikabi and Sekirei alike, plays dirty by manipulating and threatening other players, and only sees his Sekirei as pawns he will discard as soon as they stop being useful to him.˛* NonActionGuy: Implied to ''not'' be the case, surprisingly enough. Upon witnessing Seo and Sanada's BigBallOfViolence, he remarks that it's a good thing he took up boxing. ˛* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: At least two of the Sekirei under his command were there because of him [[HostageSituation using their Ashikabi]] as leverage.˛* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: His heartfelt apology to a defeated Toyotama for being a BadBoss.]]˛* TheRedBaron: "Higa of the East", since he holds control over the Eastern portion of the city. ˛* RevengeBeforeReason: Comes dangerously close in his grudge against Minato, losing an enormous amount of his Sekirei and much of his influence within the Game as a direct result.˛* SharpDressedMan: His tailored suits and obvious fashion sense make him stand out from other Ashikabi. ˛* SmugSnake: Oh, so very much. He's the smuggest of the smug, but quickly loses his cool if things don't go his way.˛* TheSociopath: He shows most of the traits of this, at least early in the story. His attachment to everyone, except ''maybe'' his subordinate Kakizaki is purely a facade, at best, and he sees absolutely nothing wrong with any criminal or outright abhorrent behavior, so long as he doesn't actually face any consequences, and ''if he does'' it's always [[NeverMyFault because of someone else]] [[MurderIsTheBestSolution who has to die]]. To wit, he has engaged in kidnapping, outright assault, assassination by proxy, hostage taking, threatening the life of an invalid in his hospital, with whom he had a prior legally binding contract for treatment, has actually engaged in murder (of his own company's board of directors and employees), attempted to murder both Minato and Natsuo using MBI's KillSat, and treated his Sekirei, who are strongly implied to be with him against their will as nothing more than expendable pawns, regretting their termination only because it inconveniences him, and absolutely throws a murderous fit when things don't go his way, even if it's a direct result of his own actions.˛* SoreLoser: As he continues to be thwarted by Minato and his group he slowly loses it to the point he whines like a child believing that because Minaka is Minato's father is solely the reason he's gotten so far due to having so many powerful Sekirei with single numbers. ˛* TookALevelInKindness: The epilogue reveals that [[spoiler: he chose to allow almost all of his Sekirei to refuse being winged by him again, allowing for the ones that he forcefully winged to live their lives free of the memories of their time as his slaves while also allowing the ones most loyal to him faithfully stay by his side.]]˛* UnderestimatingBadassery: Higa made the mistake of thinking he could hold the "Demon Ashikabi" Yukari prisoner until she agreed to marry him. ''Boy'', did he get that one wrong. She sets fire to his penthouse on her way out.˛* VillainInAWhiteSuit: He always wears a nice white suit. He's also an arrogant and manipulative Ashikabi acting as a major villain.˛* VillainousBreakdown: The cracks are definitely showing in his cool exterior, and at this point he's lost much of his former bite. By the time of the end of the 4th stage, and Mikogami's speech and Minato ruining his plans he finally loses it to the point he's screaming at Minato over how he keeps him from achieving his ambitions. ˛* VillainousDemotivator: His Sekirei know they have ''two'' options: Victory or termination. Several have mentioned being told they couldn't come back unless they were successful. ˛* VillainousFriendship: Type 1. Kakizaki describes himself as Higa's OnlyFriend and states the two have been good friends for many years.˛* WeHaveReserves: Tends to throw his Sekirei into battle, and makes it clear that he has no more use for them if they can't win.˛* XanatosGambit: His participation in the 3rd Match, as if he managed to win he got a second Jinki. And if he lost, he still [[spoiler: only sacrificed his weaker Sekirei while gaining valuable information about his opponents ''and'' could still have Uzume steal the Jinki from the winner afterwards. When Uzume was intercepted, he still benefited by being able to order her to lead a direct attack on Maison Izumo]]. However, things eventually derail after a combination of TheDogBitesBack, the dropping of the DistressBall, Mikogami's [[EnemyMine interference]], and Minato running his own gambit.

His powers are very destructive. ˛* EffeminateVoice: He's a girly-looking boy with a voice done by a woman.˛* ForcedIntoEvil: Like Uzume, Shiina is forced by Higa to hunt Sekirei and jinki for a while because Higa is keeping Yukari hostage. Thankfully, Uzume talks him into escaping because his Ashikabi isn't helpless like hers.˛* IGotBigger: He's slightly shorter than Yukari at the time of their first meeting, but stands taller than her by the end of the manga. His face is also noticeably more mature-looking. This is especially notable as it makes him the only Sekirei who appears to physically age in anyway on-screen.˛* InnocentGrayEyes: His gray eyes signify innocence (and [[WhatBeautifulEyes beauty]], according to Yukari).˛* InsecureLoveInterest: Higa seeds a lot of insecurity in Shiina in regards to his relationship with Yukari, as Higa claims Sekirei only ruin humans' lives and this means Yukari can only be happy if she marries another human.

It's subverted since her powers are actually useful; it's just they're better suited for support.
