Felli Loss

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (JP), Monica Rial (EN)

The psychokinesis user of the 17th Platoon and a second year. Like Layfon, she was recruited into Military Arts against her will, which leads her to take an interest in him.

  • A-Cup Angst: Downplayed for the most part, but she does show annoyance at Nina's size in episode 15.
  • The Chick: She's the smallest and cutest member of the 17th Platoon. She mainly uses her psychokinetic powers to support the team, such as managing searching and communication.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Whenever her "Fon-Fon" gets friendly with other girls, Felli gives him a painful kick.
  • The Comically Serious: She keeps the same straight face despite the comical situations she finds herself in.
  • Commonality Connection: She feels drawn to Layfon because, like her, the strength of his powers aren't normal, and he was forced into Military Arts against his will as well.
  • Cursed with Awesome: She's one of the most talented psychokinesis users. However, she doesn't like how her powers make it difficult to express emotions. She especially hates to be forced to fight.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She slowly warms up to Layfon as time goes on.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She becomes mad if Layfon calls her "senpai". She wants him to call her Felli.
  • Emotionless Girl: Subverted. As a psychokinesis user, Felli can't express emotions the same way as others. However, she's way too prone to Tsundere outbursts and violence.
  • Frozen Face: She literally can't make common facial expressions. Her psychokinesis transmits so much information to her brain that her conscious can't handle all of it and blocks off emotional responses. This is especially troublesome for her when her job at a Maid Cafe requires her to smile at the customers.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Despite her nature as The Stoic, Felli gets angry very easily and is prone to tantrums and violence.
  • Heroic Albino: She's one of the main heroines, coming with white hair and pale skin.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In the end, Felli knows that due to his Chronic Hero Syndrome, Layfon will never stay in one place for very long, and will be Walking the Earth helping people and doing what he feels is right. Despite being saddened that he will leave, she accepts this having fallen for him because of this. However, Layfon ends up asking Felli to go with him and together they depart in secret.
  • Little Girls Kick Shins: Felli usually kicks people in the shins when she gets angry.
  • Little Miss Snarker: She's small, sharp and very snarky.
  • Mystical White Hair: A psychokinesis user with white hair.
  • Older Than She Looks: She looks like a preteen girl, but is actually 16 years old.

  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches down to her knees.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A young white-haired, pale-skinned girl with psychic powers who initially comes off as emotionless, but eventually warms up to the main character and even falls in love with him. She's also a rare example that has Shana Clone traits mixed in.
  • Reluctant Warrior: She's only in Military Arts because her brother forced her into it. Feli actually dislikes fighting and doesn't want to use her power.
  • Shana Clone: Petite, flat-chested teenage girl, has Rapunzel Hair, occasionally wears Grade A Zettai Ryouiki, is a short-tempered Type A Tsundere who frequently belittles and kicks her love interest. She's a rare case mixed with Rei Ayanami Expy.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Her cold, detached and almost emotionless demeanor is actually a side effect of her powers. In reality, Felli is rather emotive and hates to not be able to properly express her feelings. Layfon is the only one to even get a glance of her soft and cute side.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: She's tiny, short-tempered, bossy and usually kicks or smacks Layfon when she gets angry or jealous.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The short, young-looking girl of 17th Platoon.
  • Tsundere: She often alternates from insulting and kicking "Fon-Fon" out of annoyance or jealousy to being sweet and openly caring for him.
  • Unhappy Medium: Like most psychokinesis users, Felli receives a great influx of information in her brain, and her mind is unable to handle the strain of responding to every bit of information. This causes Felli's difficulty to express emotions.
  • Walking the Earth: At the end of the series, she joins Layfon in his journey around the world.
  • When She Smiles: Layfon blushes when he gets a glimpse of her smile. Then Felli ruins the moment by kicking him like usual.
