Tropes applied to all Coppelion

  • Badass Crew
  • Cloning Blues: They are cloned from their originals, with same personality as them except their cells are modified to be immune to radiation and added special skills.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Coppelion are immune to radiation so they don't need to wear Hazmat Suit when they are in the old capital.
  • Healing Factor: Coppelions recover from injury faster than anyone. Haruto has a particularly stronger one than the other Coppelion.
  • Living MacGuffin: Once the Coppelion project becomes known to governments all over the world.
  • Meaningful Name: Coppelion was named after the ballet Coppélia. Lampshaded by Aoi, who said just like Coppélia, a beautiful life size doll created by Dr. Coppelius, Coppelions were living dolls created by genetic engineering.
  • Super Soldier
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: The Coppelion are different from humans. They know it, and they each have a different approach in dealing with this issue.

Ibara Naruse
Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu (Japanese), Erica Lindbeck (English)

The leader of the Coppelion Medical unit. A senior and the class president.

Taeko Nomura
Voiced by: Satomi Akesaka (Japanese), Shelby Lindley (English)

Medical unit member, first year.

Aoi Fukasaku/Izanami Jyugotenshi
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa (Japanese), Cassandra Lee Morris (English)

Member of the medical unit and a first year. Although she's not very confident in herself, she turns out to have great potential for psychic abilities such as flying, creating shockwaves and controlling matter - which was Dr. Coppelius' goal in creating the Coppelion.

Those powers first manifest unconciously in stressing moments as she helps her friends with a blank expression. Ibara and Taeko never tell her about her powers, until Aoi gains a split personality named Izanami Jyugotenshi, named after an anime heroine. Izanami can use the full potential of Aoi's powers, but is also too violent and unhelpful, so Aoi later gets lessons from Mana on how to better use her abilities by herself.

  • Badass Adorable
  • Big Eater:
  • Chekhov's Skill: She was able to hold Ibara steady when Haruto was using the AED, hinting at her later ability to absorb Kanon's electricity.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Being a magical girl, Izanami does this.
  • Combat Medic
  • Cute and Psycho: Izanami.
  • Damsel in Distress: Rather vulnerable to this trope, such as when she's kidnapped by the 1st Division in Episode 6.
  • The Drag-Along: Less than happy about going on a dangerous mission into a crumbling city with no electricity or running water, immune to radiation or not.
  • Energy Absorption: She can absorbs Kanon's electricity.
  • Genki Girl
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Spends a long time locked on a room after Ibara's Near-Death Experience.
    • Not only she gets depressed again after learning about her powers and situation, she also gets withdrawal symptoms from the drug that was used to keep Izanami active. However, this time she resolves to become stronger and help her friends.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: When the japanese government blackmails Ibara by requesting Aoi in exchange for a aircraft to properly take people out of Tokyo, Aoi tearfully complies. However, Ibara refuses to let her go.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Has to learn from Mana how to use her powers without becoming Izanami.
  • It's All My Fault: Blamed herself for Ibara's near death experience. Combined with Heroic BSoD.
  • Justice Will Prevail: Izanami is very eager about destroying evil.
  • Living MacGuffin: Regarded as the ultimate coppelion due to her power potential.
  • The Load: Since she (initially) has no obvious superpowers compared to the other Coppelion, Aoi is generally of little use to the group. Her awareness of this is the root of her self-esteem issues.
  • Magic Skirt: Very much in effect in Episode 9, given the positions of her legs during her depression.
  • Mood-Swinger: Suffers nervous breakdowns when things go south, but usually recovers with incredible speed once it's over.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: In Episode 10, Aoi showed that she was capable of flight. In Episode 11, she was suddenly capable of absorbing Kanon's electricity as well as forming an impenetrable energy shield. However, this trope can be attributed to nobody really knowing what the extent of her powers are.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: Her hair becomes green when she turns into Izanami.
  • Split Personality: Becomes the more agressive Izanami Jyugotenshi when using her true abilities. What's troubling is that despite wishing to protect Aoi, Izanami is far too destructive and doesn't want to continue dormant either.
  • The Power of Friendship: Learns to use her psychic abilities by focusing on her feelings for Ibara.
  • Third-Person Person
  • Took a Level in Badass: When fighting Ozu sisters, she defeats them by absorbing Kanon's electricity. Later she learns how to control her powers and saves Shion from the Three Professors.
  • Walking Spoiler: Becomes a lot more important than she seems at first.

Meisa Ichikawa

A second-year coppelion who was part of the Exploration Unit.

  • Attack Its Weak Point: Her left eye seems to be the core of her sand-like transformations. Ibara knocks it away once and Meisa loses control for a while before recovering her eye.
  • Creepy Doll: She's the keeper of Dr. Coppelius bunny doll.
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Despair Event Horizon: When she accidentally killed everyone at Shinto Bank. Afterwards, Mana's company and Dr. Copelius' promise of fixing their bugs are the only things keeping her from just flopping on the floor.
  • Determinator: Does all she can to help Dr. Copelius so he can fix her radiation defect.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Fights and loses to Mana once she refuses to let Meisa keep opposing Ibara's group.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Attempts to pull this trick on Mana upon losing to her but gets slapped in response.
  • Implacable Woman: She sometimes gets surprised and knocked out by vehicles and accidents, but Ibara and her team can't fight her directly and win at all.
  • "Instant Death" Radius: She leaks radiation and so is this to non-coppelion living beings.
  • Master of Your Domain: Meisa can disassemble ("break") and reassemble ("reload") her body at the atomic level. According to Dr Coppelius, she does this by manipulating the nuclear force of her body that holds her protons and electrons together.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She can't take her clothes along when she completely turns into dust and so she appears naked on-panel every now and then.
  • These Hands Have Killed: She brags to Ibara about having killed the people at Shinto Bank but actually feels horrible about it. When Mana decides to help Ibara, Meisa feels unworthy of following them.


A intelligent flea-like chimera coppelion who befriended Mana and Meisa.
