  • Femme Fatalons: Her nails are her main weapon, the cuts left by them are on par with razors.

  • Rival Team Up: Teams up with Maki to fight the Eternal. Is eventually defeated which leaves Maki to fight alone.

Sakamoto Julietta

Maki's stalker, known for his freakish strength and works as a ghost writer.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Claims he will marry Maki.
  • Hopeless Romantic: A dark and twisted version. His obsession with Maki manifests as frantic behavior and poetic hyperbole, and he violently lashes out at some girls who offer him sexual services for money, warning them he doesn't hold back on people who "play around with love".
  • Rape as Drama: Has tried to rape Maki twice. He came close the second time as signaled by her struggles but was stopped by a well-placed kick to the groin.

  • Stalker with a Crush
  • Would Hit a Girl: Besides fighting Maki, he has no qualms about battering teenage girls who try to make him their sugar daddy. He coldly states that anyone who cheapens or plays around with "love" will receive no mercy from him.

  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Defeats Sakiyama and her former trainer in a tag-team match.
  • The Worf Effect: In her introductory arc, she fights Maki to a standstill, only losing due to technical submission. During the Fukamichi Ranking arc, she loses to Kinjiro (granted, she did only lose narrowly), someone Maki beat with only a bit of difficulty.

  • Calling Your Attacks: When he did, it made him seem like an Expy of Kenshiro.

  • Iron Butt Monkey: He can hold his own in a fight, but hes not just almost dirt poor and easily ignored.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Using a jackhammer so much allowed him to throw an onslaught of punches. The speed and strength allowed him to punch holes in a wall.
