    The Time Travelers 

Natsuki Hayami

Masaki Miyamoto

Naozumi "Kotaka" Yatsuka

Eri Kasugano

Eiji Horie

  • Big Damn Heroes: In the Unzen valley, when a bunch of Christians were going to be tortured to death with boiling water, he uses a trick to make their captors believe that a red dragon had risen from the water.
  • Heroic BSoD: Almost suffers one when he learns that word of his and Kichou's relationship has leaked and that's why she was imprisoned.
  • Sempai Kouhai: He's one year younger than Natsuki and the others.
    • He Is All Grown Up: Since he landed in the past five years earlier than Natsuki and Eri, when they find each other again he is taller and older than them. Natsuki invokes the trope word by word!

Seika "Mariana" Akishima

  • Elegant Classical Musician: More exactly, she was a member of the school chorus and a talented singer. Not to mention she had planned to go study music abroads after graduation.
  • Hair Decorations: Wore a hairclip with her school uniform
  • I Broke a Nail: She says this before she and the other kids start working with Natsuki to help out people after the Kobe Earthquake.
  • Japanese Christian: While all of the kids are Raised Catholic, Seika is the one that takes it more seriously. She's sure that this is a Mission from God pretty much from the start.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Slightly. She comes off as more flighty and spoiled than the others, but has a kind heart and does her best to help.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Her trademark outfit is a white gown. (Justified Trope: she was about to perform on-board right before being Trapped in the Past, thus she had just changed into the gown when Hell broke loose.) Though she later changes to more simple and practical kimonos.

     The Dutch 


Nicolaes Couckebacker


     The Tokugawas and their associates 

The Tokugawa and their associates

Tokugawa Iemitsu

Jubei Yagyu

  • Scars Are Forever: Even when his eyepatch covers his lost eye, we can still see parts of a rather stylish scar.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seemt ot be this to Miyamoto and Natsuki.

Nabeshima Motoshige

Nabeshima Mitsushige

Nabeshima Katsushige

Terazawa Katataka

Sugishima Daigo

  • Knight In Sour Armor: As he speaks to Natsuki, we learn that he has become horribly jaded after years of fighting.

Hosokawa Mitsutoshi

Matsudaira Tadanao

Shimazu Mitsuhisa


Kuroda Tadayuki

Kuriyama Taizen

Ogasawara Tadazane

Oba Kuranosuke

     People from the Shimabara area 

Masuda Shirou, aka Amakusa Shiro

  • Posthumous Character: And we all know what happened with him.
  • Sex Slave: Became this to Naozumi, after being captured. According to Naozumi, Shirou never yielded to him: he first attempted to understand his "lord"'s broken psyche and then to use this to try helping both Naozumi and his fellow Christians... but when Naozumi realized that he was falling for Shirou, he was so shaken that he strangled the poor dude to death, and then threw his lifeless body into the sea.

Matsukura Katsuie

  • If I Can't Have You...: When the imprisoned Kichou stands her ground and refuses to tell him what he wants to hear, he leaves her in the water prison.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Historically speaking, he was the lord whose evil behavior started the Shimabara Rebellion in itself. And from what we see, his in-story role won't be much different.

Kichō (Kikuhime)

  • Broken Bird: Despite being the mistress of Matsukura and with all the riches she wanted, she always felt lonely and empty. Seeing one of "Shirou"'s miracles made her start to regain hope.
  • Death Trap - Kill It with Water: In chapter 29, Kichou and a woman named Yone were placed in a water prison. In Kichou's specific case, it's because Matsukura believes that she has slept with other men despite being his mistress — with said man being Eiji (The most she did was kissing him and giving food to peasants behind Matsukura's back.)
  • Defiant Captive: When Matsukura confronts her in the water prison, Kichou refuses the "adultery" accusations against her and tells him not to abuse the villagers anymore.

Okamoto Shinbei

Mori Soiken

Yamada Kinji

Kinu (Lucia)

  • Distress Ball: Natsuki saves her from two samurais who were planning to kill her for being a...

Masuda Jinbei

  • Team Dad: hen again, he is Shirou's father


  • Rescue Romance: Genderflipped: she's the one who saved the amnesiac Miyamoto


  • Defiant Captive: She's heavily pregnant and gets tossed in a water prison for being a Christian. She refuses to give in, and when Kichou hesitates due to her worry for her, Yone tells her not to rat out Natsuki and Co.
  • Expy: She plays the in-story role of the real life pregnant peasant whose imprisonment kicked off the whole Shimabara rebellion. Only that, in the story itself, Yone wasn't alone in there: Kichou was thrown in as well.

How well does it match the trope?
