    The Human Correctors 

Yui Kasuga

A middle school student who assumes the online identity of "Corrector Yui". She is very clumsy and childish, but she is also very kind. Little by little, she not only gains the trust of her teammates, but she also embraces the responsibility of maintaining the order in ComNet. She takes the Magical Girl role by accident, since IR thought at first that she was an "expert on computers" (which she clearly wasn't).

  • Ascended Fangirl: She's a fan of Magical Girl shows and virtual reality games. Becoming a literal Internet Magical Girl with the responsibility of saving the world was a dream come true.
  • Childhood Friends: Yui has been friends with Takashi since they were children.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She can be easily distracted by the cuteness around her when she is supposed to be fighting a virus... which is very unhelpful for her or her teammates.
  • Daddy's Girl: Her dad still sees her as a child and is very overprotective to her. He even does his best to spoil her, when he is taking advantage of his web designer and web developer's job.
  • Genius Ditz: Although she is naive about computers' knowledge, she has a very good singing voice and many see her as a great artist. She was the first to realize that Ai Shinozaki was the mysterious Corrector Ai, if only because of a single dialogue that both told her (and no one believed her because anyone can assume any kind of identity on the internet) in the same period of time.
  • Genki Girl: She is very energetic, and she is the first to get excited towards anything that looks fun.
  • Hair Antennae: Her distinctive hairstyle has one that denotes her ditzy personality.
  • Heroic BSoD: She suffers three through the first season, all of them related to her role as a Magical Girl.
  • The Heroine: The main hero of the series. Yui is seen as reliable by her peers (both teammates and friends), because at the end of the day she is important to them. Perhaps she isn't smart as Haruna or skilled enough as Ai, but she brings them all together, because she trusts them, no matter what.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Yui pulls this to both a manipulated Corrector Haruna and a mind-controlled Shun, because she didn't want to fight them. They work.
  • Jumped at the Call: She was into the job, as soon as IR gave her not only the Element Suit, but also the chance to rescue her dad and his web developer team, who were trapped in the website he put his heart on while developing it.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Very nice girl... unfortunately, she can very barely use computers (in an era when computer programming is a requisite high school course).
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Yui is the light to Ai's dark. She is sweet and naive, compared to Ai, who is aloof and brooding.
  • Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: She has a huge crush on her neighbor, Shun Tojo.
  • Male Gaze: A fourteen-year-old girl with a young adult woman figure. And her Transformation Sequence puts a lot of emphasis on her hips, her breasts, and her butt.
  • Otaku Surrogate: She aspires to be a manga artist and a voice actress... and she is also a Magical Girl.
  • Pink Heroine: Her signature costume as a Magical Girl is a fairy-inspired pink tutu.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Takashi. She has been friends with him ever since they were children.
  • Precocious Crush: Yui met Shun when she was four years old, and since then, she developed a crush on him.
  • Screw Destiny: She wasn't the Chosen One at first. It was all a mistake that IR made along the way when they first met. However, at the time she gathered all the software programs, she eventually wasn't just leading them but she also ended up befriending them, and didn't want to let them down once Haruna assumed the leadership.
  • Serial Romeo: Once Shun is in America, she starts falling in love with other cute guys she meets.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Towards Shun.
  • The Unchosen One: Professor Inukai had Haruna in mind to be the human corrector that would lead the correctors, but Grosser intercepted IR to make Yui the one... imagine her surprise when Inukai informs her that she wasn't supposed to be their leader...
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Takashi. They share a friendly but close connection (which is the reason why Haruna feels jealous about their friendship), even if they just bother and bicker each other when they are together.

Haruna Kisaragi

Voiced by: Yuko Kagata (JP), Mayra Arellano (LA)

Yui's best friend from middle school. She is a mild mannered girl who is believed to be a computer-knowledgeable genius.

She later assumes the Corrector Haruna online identity at full when Yui's life is in danger.

  • The Ace: Haruna is very smart, and very acknowledgeable on computers. For this reason alone, Inukai wanted her to be the original leader of the Correctors. And it shows as well, when she assumes her role as Corrector Haruna to rescue Yui (in the second season), as she manages to use the four Element Suits perfectly at the first try.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her Element Suit is the only one of the three that includes a midriff section.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Please don't push her buttons too much, especially when her friends' lives are in danger.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Grosser manipulates her as part of his plan in the first season.
  • Dark Magical Girl: When controlled by Grosser.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Her Element Suit has an angelic motif and a light colors scheme (turquoise, white, and pink). Her other Element Suit (when being controlled by Grosser), while it resembles similar pieces of her original suit, it is made sexier, and has gloves and tall boots, with a color scheme which consists mostly of black and red.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: She normally has Tareme Eyes, but when she gets brainwashed by Grosser, they switch to Tsurime Eyes.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: The convenient motif of her Element Suit is that it resembles an angel, but when she gets brainwashed by Grosser, it resembles a devil.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: While Haruna is a gentle girl with everybody, she also envies Yui's bright and friendlier personality. This makes it easier for Grosser to manipulate her, especially in the manga.
  • Idiot Hair: Her hairstyle has a cowlick. Even if she is a little naive, Haruna is actually very smart.
  • Invisible Parents: While they appear off-screen, it is implied her parents are workaholics and that they are barely at home. However, they do appear if only for a few panels of the manga, worried about her when she falls into a coma, thanks to Grosser.
  • Missed the Call: Haruna was Professor Inukai's first choice to be the correctors' leader but IR confused her with Yui, thanks to Grosser.
  • Mission Control: She assumes her full role as Corrector when Yui falls victim from a Boggles' infection.
  • Nice Hat: Her Element Suit's cap resembles an angel's halo.
  • Paint It Black: When Haruna gets fully brainswashed, her suit instantly gets corrupted as well, becoming more or less a sexier version of the Angel Element Suit, resembling a devil instead.
  • The Poorly Chosen One: She was Professor Inukai's Chosen One from the very first moment (to the point that when he recovers his memory and after he explains, he pretty much tells Yui "ok, thanks for saving me--don't let the door hit you on the way out". Unfortunately for Haruna, Drosser is infatuated with Yui (to the point that he was the one who made IR go to Yui's computer), so the moment she becomes leader to the Correctors, Drosser pretty much declares "Let's Get Dangerous!" and corrupts her (which nobody thought he could do to human Correctors, until then) on her very first mission. This forces Yui to get back on the saddle.
  • Shrinking Violet: Originally, Haruna was a very shy girl and she considered herself as a loner. Once she is first approached by Yui at school, she slowly gets better.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Pretty good fighter hidden in a (compared to Yui) womanly package.
  • Team Mom: Haruna is supportive and has a maternal instinct for her friends. She preferred to be on the sidelines when she turned down her leader role as a human corrector, although this changes once she decides to help Yui in the battlefield.

Ai Shinozaki

Voiced by: Kae Araki (JP), Laura Ayala (LA)

A mysterious girl who becomes a corrector in season two. She becomes the temporal neighbor of Yui, living with her aunt (Shun's mother), once Shun goes to America to keep studying Medicine.

She is the daughter of computer scientists Shintaro and Asuza Shinozaki, and becomes a corrector only because she needs to find a little girl.

  • Aloof Ally: Ai is more capable of handling a virus on her own at the very start, compared to Yui and Haruna.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She is tall, beautiful, dark-haired, and she also maintains a distance from her classmates and acquaintances.
  • Anti-Hero: She doesn't see herself as an ally of Yui (and the other correctors share the same thoughts), especially since she is working on her own. She doesn't want to be associated with her either, until her stance changes as time keeps progressing.
  • Beauty Mark: She has a small mole below one of her eyes.
  • Broken Bird: Ai used to be very sweet when she was a child. But when her dad died when she was only four years old, she started to force her physical emotions for her mom's sake and sanity. She eventually became a loner, since her classmates started to believe she was a narcissist, only because she was too perfect at everything. It took a turn for the worse once her mom fell into a coma, thanks to an accident concerning her job behind ComNet.
  • But Now I Must Go: After her mother recovers from her coma she gets to be with her mother again, but unfortunately she has to leave her friends, but not without promising to see them again.
  • Color-Coded Eyes: Her eyes' color point out that she is an important character for the plot of the second season. And she is actually very important for the plot of the series, too. Her father was one of the few scientists tied to the creation of ComNet, to mention just an example.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She takes the role of corrector, firstly and mostly for her own ambition, and not because she wants to save ComNet as Yui or the other Software Programs. She wants to help her comatose mom, whose conscience has been lost online for so long, that from one moment or another, she could be declared clinically dead if she never regains it. And considering her only alive relative is her aunt (whose son is studying overseas)...
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Mostly thanks to Yui, who helps her to improve her personality, as she also wants to be her friend.
  • Dub Name Change: She's referred to as Aiko in the Italian dub.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Ai is the dark to Yui's light, since she is aloof and brooding, in comparison with Yui, who is more sweet and naive.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: During the process of season two, Yui becomes her first friend and she starts opening herself to the rest of the correctors.
  • One-Way Visor: She is first seen using a visor that suggests a mysterious nature, as it is also covering her eyes. However, this visor actually helps her to identify and pinpoint virus outbreaks, working in a similar manner to Rescue and Freeze's attributes as software.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Her Love Element Suit is based in the outfit of a maid.
  • The Snark Knight: Sometimes. Especially when Yui or the Correctors are around.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: More of a loner and "mysterious" than the other two Correctors, within the Internet and out.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The young Ai we see in flashbacks was a really sweet Cheerful Child, who grew up very attached to her mother.

     Software Programs/Correctors 


Voiced by: Hiroki Takahashi (JP), José Luis Reza (LA)

He is the corrector software #1, also known as "The Regulator". His element motif is Wind. He was found by Yui in a Science Fiction MMORPG net disguised as a Space Pirate called "Shadowcat".

  • Bishounen: One of the few good-looking guys featured in the series.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Tries (and fails) to flirt with Yui. Later on, he tries to do the same with Ante, but she predicts he'd flirt with her during the mission and sends Follow instead to troll him.
  • It's All About Me: Heroic example, as he's very egocentric but has a good heart underneath.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At the very start, Control didn't sympathize with Yui, since he felt she was stealing his limelight as the leader of his team, and because he wanted to work at his own rhythm compared to hers. However, he started to open up when he recognized that Yui was more of a leader figure than he was. He also cares a lot for his comrades, even when they don't obey his orders.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His distinctive hairstyle's bang covers half of his sight. As a hint of his real identity, his space pirate persona uses a patch on one of his eyes.
  • Shout-Out: His Captain Shadowcat disguise is a homage to Leiji Matsumoto's Captain Harlock.

Synchro/War Wolf

Voiced by: Takashi Matsuyama (JP), Bardo Miranda (LA)
(as War Wolf) Takashi Matsuyama (JP), Miguel Ángel Ghigliazza (LA)

Synchro is the software program #2, also referred as "The Synchronizer". He has the power of Fire. He is the last software to be found since he was under the identity of War Wolf, one of Grosser's Fearsome Four. Under the identity of War Wolf, he is a skilled combat fighter, and retains his snarky side towards his companions and the correctors, especially Yui. Synchro eventually returns to his War Wolf identity thanks to the infection of the Boggles virus at the start of season 2, and is only released from it at the very end.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Yui refers to him as "Doggie" (Wan-chan, in Japanese), because of his wolf physical appearance as War Wolf. She insists on using that name when he returns to this physical appearance, although he finds it annoying at first (but he later embraces it).
  • Ambiguously Brown: His skin color is darker than his teammates'.
  • The Big Guy: Synchro is one of the tallest correctors, and he is also more body-built than Control. He is loyal to his teammates and is the first to act when there is direct combat involved.
  • Bodyguard Crush: It's hinted through the entire anime that he could have some feelings for Yui. Sometimes, even before returning to his original identity, he started developing something for Yui that is strongly implied to be romantic. It was even one of the triggers that made him eventually return to his former self. Later, he proves to be loyal to her and even if she still bothers him with an Affectionate Nickname, he can't be mad at her just because of that.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Grosser transformed Synchro into War Wolf in the first season. He was protecting Inukai's life, and just because of his stubbornness and loyalty to Professor Inukai, Grosser wanted him to be on his side.
  • Cool Sword: His main weapon is a sword that reminisces a Jedi light saber. No wonder, since Kia Asamiya is a Star Wars fan.
  • Dub Name Change: War Wolf is just "Wolf" in the Italian dub.
  • Noble Wolf: As War Wolf (and even as his human self) he is proud, but when he is with his teammates (either as a villain or hero), he becomes threatening.


Voiced by: Michiko Neya (JP), Circe Luna (LA)

Corrector Software #3, "The Predictor". She has the Wind elemental power in her. When the Professor dispersed the correctors for their own sake, she took the role of a popular Fortune Teller whose site was later corrupted by Grosser.

  • Dub Name Change: In the Italian dub, her name is Vision.
  • Seer: She falls mostly in the Fortune Teller side, since she sees the future (she also assumes that role when she was hiding from Grosser). Most of the times, her predictions are almost accurate. In the second season, however, she only gets hints of bigger things to come.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Kind, soft-spoken, very cool-headed.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her name is spelled "Anty" on official merchandise as well as the DVD releases.
  • Team Mom: She prefers to be on the sidelines, while helping her teammates with her prediction powers.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is green.


Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe (JP), Isabel Martiñon (LA)

Corrector Software #4, "The System Maintainer". His element motif is Water. He becomes the mysterious protector of the Nature Net after the Professor dispersed the eight Software Programs.

  • Adorably Precocious Child: Eco was designed to be particularly younger than the other correctors, being the (seemingly) youngest member of the team. However, he can still get involved in serious and adult discussions with them.
  • Disguised in Drag: In the manga, he was disguised as a girl who was taking care of Nature Net just to trick Grosser and his minions.
  • Green Thumb: He is the protector and controller of Nature, since Ecology is also the motif of his name.
  • Making a Splash: He can control water, since it's part of his elemental power.
  • Mouthy Kid: He mostly means good, although he is the first to point out to his authority figures that they are doing something wrong. He can get easily angered when people harms nature, and he's not going to think twice in attacking them.
  • Nature Hero: He prefers to isolate himself in the forest, thanks to his deepest connection to the nature, while he also protects it from the people who would harm it.
  • Refusal of the Call: It took Yui a lot of effort to recruit him, since he is loyal to his "Disappeared Dad", Professor Inukai. However, as time goes by, he grows fond of her. He also refuses to help Haruna at first, when she was re-recruiting the correctors. This time, however, was because he was loyal to Yui, and he felt he would have been betraying and denying her past actions as a corrector.
  • The Resenter: Intially towards Synchro, especially for burning a great part of Nature Net's forest (when he was War Wolf). This is a plot device in the Okamoto manga, since this trigger of tension between him and Synchro is what Haruna, already manipulated by Grosser, uses as an attempt to divide (and destroy) the gathered software team.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Inukai, who he sees as a parental figure.


Voiced by: Akiko Kimura (JP), Elsa Covián (LA)

Corrector Software #5, "The Repairer". Her Elemental power is related to Water. During the dispersal of the correctors, she was hidden in the Medical Net, while searching for the Professor on her own.

  • Genius Ditz: Rescue is very childish (in appearance she seems a bit older than Yui), but she is also an excellent medic and a really good trickster.
  • Hair Antennae: Her antennae denotes her naive and childish personality.
  • Hair Decorations: She has some kind of "halo" above her head that is also a virus radar.
  • The Medic: She is designed after a nurse, and has curative powers related to water.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: While she's a non-combatant program, she's very dedicated and hardworking, making her a very reliable piece on the team.
  • Wrench Wench: Besides being a medic, she is a very good Booby Trap planner.


Voiced by: Kazuhiko Nishimatsu (JP), Armando Rendiz (LA)

Corrector Software #6, "The Archiver". His motif is Fire, something very ironic since he doesn't approve of violence. He was, alongside Follow, on a remote island hidden in the Marine Adventure Net.

  • Grumpy Old Man: As the "archiver", he was designed to be an old man who prefers peace and solitude.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can act very reluctant at times, but if he is meaning to do his work, he puts a lot of effort for his teammates' sake.
  • Technical Pacifist: As in ironic, since he also represents Fire (an element related to violence) and he builds weapons. He just refuses to use them himself.


Voiced by: Shinobu Satouchi (JP), Enrique Mederos (LA)

Corrector Software #7, "The Compiler". His elemental power is Earth. He was, alongside Peace, on a remote island hidden in the Marine Adventure Net.

  • Shapeshifter: He sometimes takes the role of The Trickster as he can change his appearance into any kind of living form, being a human or an animal. He even played a joke on Control using this attibute, as he disguised himself as Ante for a mission, because she didn't have time to go with him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light blue hair, in his case.


Voiced by: Tomohiro Nishimura (JP), Luis Daniel Ramírez (LA)

Corrector Software #8, "The Installer". He has the Earth elemental power. He was the one who Professor Inukai sends to look for the human corrector who would reunite the Software Programs and stop Grosser.

  • Fairy Companion: Serves this role a lot. He's hardly ever seen doing physical prowess, unlike his other Corrector comrades.
  • Mentor Mascot: His physical appearance is a racoon, who mentors Yui in her way to protect ComNet.



Voiced by: Mugihito (JP), Miguel Ángel Ghigliazza (LA)

Leader of the Corruptors, and actual ComNet's main computer server.

  • Batman Gambit: How he manipulates Haruna to separate Yui from her Corrector friends and control her.
  • Beautiful All Along: In the Okamoto manga, he is transformed into a handsome human, thanks to Yui.
  • Big Bad: Grosser is the main villain in season 1, as he wants to destroy ComNet from the inside, as he was the host computer who controlled it.
  • Dub Name Change: To Giganet in the Italian dub.
  • I Just Want to Be You: His motives in the manga about using Yui become a bit creepier in the manga, as he actually wants to possess Yui in the real world.
  • Mailer Daemon: His subconscious met Yui and became amazed by (and obsessed with) her when she was a little girl.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: He wants to know what is human life.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Yui, ever since she was a child.
  • Villainous Crush: He wants Yui to be his puppet girlfriend/wife.


Voiced by: Kotono Mitsuishi (JP), Catalina Múzquiz (LA)

The only female Corrupted Software on Grosser's Fearsome Four team. She has the ability to freeze anything.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In one episode of the second season, Kurokawa's minion mind-controls her as a way to get the missing little girl, since her previous attempts were massive failures.
  • Chickification: In the second season, since her role as a villain ended in the previous one. It's justified since her true ability was resetted, and she doesn't know what her "real call" is supposed to be. She's more of a Plucky Comic Relief during the second season, doing what she can to find her "real call" as a program, but fails miserably in the process.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: More applied in the second season, since she is always getting fired from her jobs.
  • Dark Action Girl: In the first season.


Voiced by: Hiromi Sugino (JP), Gerardo Reyero (LA)

The most knowledgeable of Grosser's henchmen despite his bulk size and his strength. Most of his tactics includes manipulating the environment to do his bidding (though most of it didn't do so well). In the second season, he becomes the library administrator.

  • Badass Bookworm: Jaggy is incredibly smart, and he would apply this ability into battle as well.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the second season, since he and his teammates were resetted by Grosser, as a way to provide help to ComNet.


Voiced by: Kazuhiro Nakayama (JP), Martín Soto (LA)

The most intelligent of Grosser's henchmen. He is armed with primarily a light saber and computer viruses. His computer viruses can be used to corrupt other programs and make them do his bidding. In the second season, he works as a virus computer researcher.

  • Anime Hair: His distinctive hairstyle denotes his "evil scientist" appearance.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the second season, since he and his teammates were resetted by Grosser, as a way to provide help to ComNet.

  • Oblivious to Love: Even though he loves Yui in his own way of loving her (Like Brother and Sister), he seems unaware of Yui's real feelings about him.
