Akira's First Group

     Akira Sengoku

Our hero. Formerly the class clown, Akira now finds himself forced to lead his classmates through an island filled with deadly animals.

  • Accidental Pervert: The most frequent gag is him ending up in a compromising position with a girl, and Rion dragging him off by his ear.
  • Badass Normal: Coming in just behind Yarai and Kouhei.
  • Big Eater: Though it hasn't really come up since the first chapter.
  • Book Dumb: Before coming to the island, Akira was generally not bright and scored low grades at schools
  • Celibate Hero: Seems to be his primary reason for not acting on his feelings for Rion. They're more than a little busy.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: He likes to peep on the girls, but not Rion.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Rion.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Despite being called a pervert, he always acts like a good guy to the girls on the island.
  • Class Clown: Before coming to the island. Which is why pretty much everyone is shocked when they find out he's the one leading the most successful group of survivors.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: His charisma and leadership abilities have also made him the romantic target of Rion Akagami, Maya Miyauchi, Tokiwa Aya, Yuki Sakuma, Kagura Mami, Kanako Oomori, Rei Ooguro, and Kashiwagi Sanae — all of whom consider him to be an ideal husband should they be unable to leave the island.
  • Determinator: He has a resolute and determined personality which always places his friends priority over himself and attempts to to save anyone close to him, regardless of the situation.
  • Disappeared Dad: Chapter 183 reveals that he died of an illness when Akira was four.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Does this to Yuki... by slapping her butt.
  • The Hero: Might as well have it stamped on his forehead. He's not afraid to try and save everyone, including people that would consider him as an enemy. Throughout the series, whenever Akira has a plan despite the danger, he would always put himself in the front of the danger.
  • The Leader: A mix of types III and IV. He is a capable leader, many times due to his leadership his group is able to survive with minor losses.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Some of Kouhei's inner dialogue suggests that Akira is this to him.
  • Magnetic Hero: He's not the strongest or the smartest, but he's very good at gathering friends. Best highlighted when Akira asks for volunteers to go to the pyramid, -a mission that will take a week to get there, and where there is a potentially dangerous doctor capable of spreading a plague- everyone raises their hands.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As time on the island progress, his fighting skills have progressed to the point that he could fight evenly with Kouhei. Even able to dodge Kouichi’s blows. Due to his competence, his group is able to muster up courage and feel calm.

  • The Smart Guy: Shirou more than makes up for it with his high intelligence. He is extremely knowledgeable in various fields of science, especially prehistoric creatures and extinct animals, which makes him an asset to his friends and comrades.

  • The Short Guy with Glasses: He is a guy of a short stature.
  • Teen Genius: He is highly intelligent and has been the school prodigy since elementary school.

Yarai's Group

     Kouichi Yarai

A notorious delinquent from class 4.

  • The Ace: He isn't perfect, though. His leadership skills could use some work, and he refuses to take orders from someone else. However, these traits keep him from taking up the limelight too much.
  • Badass Normal: Yarai has been shown to have an unknown ferocious, massive amount of strength that he uses in a variety of ways. Aside from being able to sends humans literally flying with his kicks, he has been shown to be strong enough to rip a large claw off a Chalicotherium and also flick a coin at an Arsinoitherium with enough pressure to cause it to stop in its tracks. He is able to be able to defeat a group of animals simply by himself showing he's extremely effective in combat, being able to defeat humans and animals alike. He's able to injure an animal using keys as a weapon easily showing off his inhuman strength.
  • Delinquents
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Granted, he's not exactly a bad guy, but the reason he's so attached to Kurusu-sensei is that she reminds him of his (deceased) mother.

  • Love Letter Lunacy: Led Saki Segawa to think he had a crush on her.
  • Love Triangle: It remains to be seen whether or not he is in one with Kurusu and Segawa.
    • The ending doesn't quite resolve this. Everyone assumes Yarai and Kurusu are a couple but point out nothing has happened because Segawa is always around to interfere.
  • Men Don't Cry: Averted in Chapter 141, where Saki points out that he's crying because doesn't want to kill Akira.
  • Mr. Fanservice: To recap: Yarai is tall, blonde, strong and has highly defined muscles and a big chest that make him the physically biggest character in the series. He has many Shirtless Scene and get a double-page where he bath naked.
  • The Rival: Sees himself as such, though he and Akira are on much better terms than many other rivals in anime.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: The only person he shows any remote interest for is Kurusu sensei, and even then, it's not clear if he sees her romantically or as a mother figure.
  • The Stoic: He hasn't shown any signs of finding his current situation disturbing yet remains relatively calm throughout the whole ordeal.
    • Not So Stoic: Subverted in Chapters 15 and 64, where he laughs at Akira being attacked by the Edwardsi and at the misunderstanding that led Saki to hold a grudge against him. In Chapter 141, he cries because he doesn't want to kill Akira, but Nishikiori won't save Kurusu-sensei if he doesn't.

     Motoko Kurusu

The homeroom teacher of class 4.

  • Animal-Eared Headband: Yarai told her that it would protect her from animal attacks and she believed him.
  • Attempted Rape: The victim of it in the midst of the panic on the plane. Morita's video reveals that Yarai saved her.
  • Designated Victim: She gets almost raped, the first to contract the eye disease that killed the students who followed suit, and got a bad case of internal bleeding among others. Girl's got luck on her side for coming out of all them fairly unscathed.
  • Hartman Hips: She has a small chest and waist, but her hip size is huge compared to the other females of the series.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Yarai.
  • Ill Girl: The first to contract the eye disease. And then Nishikiori's reveals that she has internal bleeding and is Living on Borrowed Time.
  • The Cheerleader: Seems to be the only thing she can do, really.
  • The Load: And frustratingly so. For someone with years ahead of her students, you'd expect she'd be more capable of taking care of herself and be of some help to the team. She tries, bless her heart, but she ends up endangering them most of the time. She is always Easily Forgiven by her students though.
  • Love Triangle: It remains to be seen whether or not she is in one with Yarai and Segawa.
  • Secretly Dying: Inverted. Her companions know that she's dying from internal bleeding, but she doesn't. However, it appears she's figured out the truth on her own.]]
  • Meganekko: She is usually seen with glasses on, which are also coloured black.

A girl from a rich family who dislikes Yarai.

  • A-Cup Angst: While she's not small, she's smaller than Rion, and well aware that this is why the latter is considered prettier.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Played with. Due to the love letter confusion, she had a small crush on Yarai, which went out the window when he tore up her letter (biiig misunderstanding). On the island, once she realizes what actually happened, she starts falling for him harder.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: To Yarai, when it seems like he sees Motoko as a love interest rather than just a teacher.
  • The Glomp: After Yarai saves her.
  • Just Friends: She suggested this to Yarai in response to his love letter. Since he never actually sent her a love letter, he had no idea what was going on.
  • Love Confession: In the backstory, she thought Yarai was trying to give her one. Turns out that because the letter was unsigned, she had made a big mistake.
    Yarai: I feel bad for the guy who wrote that letter.
  • Love Letter Lunacy: Led her to think Yarai had a crush on her.
  • Love Triangle: It remains to be seen whether or not she is in one with Yarai and Kurusu.
