Funeral Parlor

A resistance force formed by Gai Tsutsugami after the outbreak of the first Apocalypse Virus, Funeral Parlor, also known as Undertaker, has one goal in mind: to restore peace to Japan and help overthrow GHQ. The group is stationed at Roppongi Fort, a probable reason for the many young members enlist. It was basically a clandestine organization, hiding its presence, but revealed their existence as a response to the Roppongi Fort invasion.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_ayase_shinomiya_0.jpg

A wheelchair-bound member of Funeral Parlor who pilots an Endlave mecha.

Her Void is a set of sleek, high-tech leg braces, boosting her leg strength and allowing her to 'rollerblade' at extremely high speeds.


  • Ace Pilot: She is one of Funeral Parlor's top-ranking pilots.
  • Action Girl: Despite being wheelchair bound, she's an ace Endlave driver and still capable of some impressive moves.
  • Curtains Match the Window: She has matching brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Ayase expresses misgivings towards Shu at first, but she becomes one of his closest allies, especially after he explains his feelings about Inori towards the end of episode 5. As time goes on, Shu even seemingly replaces Gai as her secret love following his untimely demise.
  • Determinator: In Episode 19, she lunges out of her wheelchair, slides down a railing, just for the third Genome.
  • Disabled Love Interest: Her interest in Gai is obvious in the latter's case, and she even constantly hints on but never follows on it with Shu.
  • Disabled Hottie: She may be in a wheelchair, but she is a competent fighter.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: When Shu joins Funeral Parlor, Ayase doesn't go easy on him at first.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Towards Gai.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Ayase's attitude of being in a wheelchair due to her losing her legs. This gets deconstructed after Episode 13 onwards. Respecting her is all well and good, but she can't physically do everything that normal people can, like run away when people sexually harass her. While she can fight with her wheelchair a bit, even that is of limited use against a large group.
  • Everyone Can See It: It's obvious to Tsugumi and Shu that she likes Gai.
  • Gag Boobs: Certain scenes give more attention to Ayase's breasts than they should, especially when she's in her pilot suit (which seems to make them look bigger).
  • Gainaxing: Whenever her remotely controlled mecha is hit hard, Ayase's breasts bounce.
  • Handicapped Badass: Even when Ayase is in a wheelchair, she's quite a capable pilot and fighter.
  • Heroic BSoD: Clearly has one when Gai is killed.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Tsugumi.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Gai doesn't reciprocate her feelings. Neither does Shu.
  • I Can Still Fight!: Ayase would literally rather put her life first more than abandoning her friends.
  • In a Single Bound: Her massively augmented leg strength lets her pull off jumps that would make an Olympic athlete weep with envy.
  • Luminescent Blush: She blushes whenever she is around Gai.
  • Magic Skirt: Doesn't normally come into play since she's in a wheelchair, but after Shu gives her her "legs", she's noticeably holding it down with her hand as she descends.
  • Meaningful Name: Ayase (綾瀬) is a place located in Kanagawa Prefecture.
  • Mentor Archetype: To Shu in Episode 5.
  • The Mourning After: Towards Gai. While she isn't over his death as of yet, she is trying to move forward.
  • Rollerblade Good: Her Void. Minus the wheels, but the principle's pretty much the same.
  • Ship Tease: With Shu.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Being extremely attractive and wheelchair-bound isn't a good combination when you are surrounded by jerks and sexual predators in an isolated school.
  • Third-Option Love Interest: She is possibly this towards Shu, with Hare and Inori as the Betty and Veronica respectively. She cares enough for Shu that when Haruka mentioned that Shu may die if he uses Voids again, she volunteers to use the third Void Genome. If not for Segai butting in and Shu deciding to use the Genome, she really would have done this. And by the end of the last episode, she's the only love interest of Shu's that is still alive.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She wears her hair in a ponytail.
  • Training from Hell: She subjects Shu to a grueling training program in order for him to join Funeral Parlor.

Tsugumi

Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)

Appears in: Dancing Endlaves | Guilty Crown | Princess of Deadpool

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_tsugumi_0.jpg

The fourteen-year-old hacker and operator of Funeral Parlor.

Her Void is a Magical Girl-esque rod that creates perfect doubles of people that can be controlled remotely.


  • Morality Pet: She becomes this to Daryl as she was the reason why he didn't fire at Shu and the others in Episode 14 and he goes out of his way to protect her and help Funeral Parlor escape the Ghost Units in Episode 18.
  • Morality Chain: Subverted in Episode 22. Daryl recognizes Tsugumi as this and blames her for his unlucky Character Development, deciding that killing her (and Funeral Parlor) would make him change back to "Kill ’Em All Daryl". He fails, although seems to regain his head later.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Spends a lot of time in full-body spandex and seems to like popping her butt out, even though she's 14 years old.
  • The Nicknamer: Always refers to Ayase as "Aya" and Inori as "Inoreen".
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: A particularly diabolical one.
  • Playful Hacker: She plays video games during the battles. Or maybe it's her hacking interface that resembles a video game.
  • Self-Duplication: Her Void allows Tsugumi to create clones of herself and others.
  • Ship Tease: With Daryl, of all people, in Episode 13. To be fair, she didn't know who he was at the time, though she seems to recognize him later when she is saved by him.
  • Stepford Smiler: Beneath her Genki Girl smile, she's quite lonely. This explains why her Void can create human replicas.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_arugo_0.jpg

A seventeen-year-old member of Funeral Parlor who is skilled in hand-to-hand combat and the use of knives.

His Void is a flashlight that projects a small field of perfect darkness that can also jam electronic signals.


  • Armor-Piercing Question: Ironically combined with Accidental Truth and Tempting Fate. After witnessing Shu's "Void Kingdom" he angrily yells at Shu, "Would Gai do something like this?" After Shu's facsimile of Stalin's reign manages to safely break the school out of quarantine to safety, and the students turn on him, Gai, in fact, does precisely what Argo berated Shu for, and worse.
  • Knife Nut: He has a penchant for using knives in battle.
  • Meaningful Name: Argo is the ship used by Jason and the Argonauts in Greek mythology.
  • Multicolored Hair: Has blond hair on top of his head and brown hair everywhere else.
  • Not So Different: His criticisms of Shu echo Shu's own criticisms of Gai.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has a scar on the left side of his face that somehow overlaps his hair. Gets another one on the right side of his face in Episode 19, thanks to Segai.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Argo's method of training Shu in close combat is to hand Shu a knife and then charge at him with one of his own, telling the newbie to fight like his life depends on it. Because it does.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Doesn't realize Shu's Start of Darkness has fully gone into effect.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_oogumo_0.jpg

A member of Funeral Parlor who specializes in firearms and explosives.


  • Badass Beard: He has a beard and can kick ass when he needs to.
  • The Big Guy: He has a large body who has a lot of fight in him.
  • BFG: Always seen carrying one over his shoulder as if nothing.
  • Character Death: He is killed by Segai while covering for Haruka and Kurachi's escape.
  • Famous Last Words: "You bastard!"
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Rushes at a group of Anti Bodies led by Segai, allowing Haruka and Kurachi to escape.
  • The Quiet One: He barely talks, and whenever he does, it is short and concise.
  • Rasputinian Death: In episode 19, Oogumo gets shot several times by GHQ forces and he easily takes them out. Just as he charges at Segai, he gets stabbed in the stomach and finally goes down.
  • The Stoic: He is composed and calm, even in battle.
  • Stout Strength: Despite his hefty size, he is immensely powerful.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: He makes a final stand against GHQ to cover for Haruka and Kurachi's escape. Unfortunately for Oogumo, he is killed by Segai.

A mass-murderer held prisoner at the GHQ Isolation Faculty Four due to his involvement in the "Sky Tree Bombing". He was rescued in Episode 4 by Shu and Funeral Parlor.

His Void is a gun that can manipulate gravity.


  • Alliterative Name: Kenji Kido.
  • Ax-Crazy: Not quite as much as his Hannibal Lecter getup would lead you to believe, but he still enjoys mass murder and destruction.

Arisa's grandfather who funds Funeral Parlor's operations after Episode 7.


  • Big Good: He's ultimately revealed to be Funeral Parlor's largest backer in its struggle against GHQ. Later, he is implied to be one of the leaders of a powerful network of elites organized to combat Da'ath, the series' Big Bad.
  • Cool Old Guy: Despite being at least in his seventies, he single-handedly dispatches several GHQ commandos with a katana.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: They're clearly his weapon of choice if Episode 18 is any indication.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: After his granddaughter dishonors the family, he resolves to put her down.
  • The Team Benefactor: Kuhouin doesn't publicly reveal his alliance with Funeral Parlor, but he meets the rest of the criteria.
