    Alice 

Alice

Voiced by: Yui Ogura (Japanese), Hilary Haag (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alice_kamisama_no_memo_chou_24256.jpg
The mysterious female protagonist who lives on the third floor above the Hanamaru ramen shop.
  • Amateur Sleuth
  • Batman Gambit: Alice in the baseball game. To elaborate, her small frame drastically reduced the size of the strike zone, which caused the pitcher to overcompensate on the third strike, resulting in a uncaught third strike. The subsequent fielding errors and delayed reaction from the catcher and pitcher allowed her to push two of her team's players onto second and third.
    • I Shall Taunt You: She also mocks them on their mistake while casually walking to first base.
  • Bokukko
  • Cry Cute
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: When she goes out, complete with a cute little hat.
  • Expy: Alice is basically a black-haired modern day Victorique.
  • Gamer Chick
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Alice's room is full of them and is rarely seen out without her giant bear. She will go into a panic if her favorites are damaged.
  • Hates Baths: At one point, she called Narumi and told him it's an emergency when Ayaka bathed her.
  • High-Pressure Emotion
  • Hikikomori
  • Hime Cut: Level bangs, sidelocks, and Rapunzel Hair.
  • Indirect Kiss: In episode 6, Alice sips from a DokuPe can, then gives it to Narumi, and he sips from it. It's not commented on.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: In episode 6, Narumi and Alice sleep in the same bed.
  • The Insomniac: She suffers from severe insomnia.
  • Let Them Die Happy: Inverted, when Alice tells Hakamizaka a few parting words to ensure that he will die in despair.
  • NEET
  • Ominous Multiple Screens: Alice's room. Her computer monitors and screens are her window to the outside world.
  • Parental Abandonment: Alice's parents are never mentioned outside of the novels. In the first novel she claims to have run away and is in hiding, hinting that her family is rich and powerful and intentionally kept her trapped.
  • Playful Hacker
  • Put Me In, Coach!: In the Baseball Episode, Alice, as the coach, subbed herself in. While completely failing to actually hit the ball, she managed to steal a base, which directly led to a one-point victory.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • The Runaway: She has disclosed that she has never attended school, and that she ran away from home some time before deciding to become a NEET detective.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Her age is unknown, but she has the appearance of a 12 or 13 year old.
  • Serious Business: For Alice, just about everything is Serious Business... except for stuff that tends to matter for most people, like hygiene or eating properly. Rather, its avoidance is Serious Business, particularly whenever someone else thinks she should do it. The rhetorical webs she will spin to get out of something she doesn't want to do...
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Alice generally considers herself to be this, just because nobody can keep up with her intuitive leaps and constant data-digging.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Dr. Pepper. Changed to DoKuPe in the anime.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years

    Narumi Fujishima 

Narumi Fujishima

Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Japanese), Blake Shepard (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narumi_fujishima_24257.jpg
An ordinary 16-year-old high-school student who lives with his elder sister.
  • Accidental Pervert: Ayaka starts stripping Alice since she hasn't taken a bath in two days, not noticing Narumi was there.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: In episode 6, Narumi and Alice sleep in the same bed.
  • The Magnificent: Narumi has just been collecting nicknames.
    • Vice-Admiral by Hitoshi
    • Gardening boy by Souchirou
    • God hand by Souchirou's/his computer illiterate henchmen
    • Mr. Assistant by Meo.
  • Modesty Towel: Narumi seems to catch girls coming out of the bath constantly, and so has seen this more than a few times.
  • Number Two: To Souchirou.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: For now, anyway. The others consider him a "NEET-in-waiting" no matter how he protests.
  • Power of the God Hand: Parodied, Narumi is called "God Hand" by Souchirou's gang members because they are fantastically computer illiterate and he knows how to run a virus scan, so he inevitably has to fix their computer after they visit too many sketchy porn sites.

    Ayaka Shinozaki 

Ayaka Shinozaki

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ayaka_shinozaki_26956.jpg
Narumi's classmate, an active and cheerful girl who works part-time at a ramen shop called Hanamaru.
  • Driven to Suicide: In episode 10. She survives.
  • Genki Girl
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Ayaka considering her brother's drug activites. It doesn't end well. She finds out and tries to solve matters on her own... and things get worse from there.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Ayaka takes it upon herself to be this for Narumi because she sees herself in him and is using it to project and manage her own problems through someone else. And then run away from them.
  • Ordinary High-School Student
  • Stepford Smiler: Ayaka is a Type A, crossing into a painful Deconstruction of the Purity Sue. The novels are much more up front with this about her, compared to the anime which takes its time to present her as anything but a happy, high-spirited Genki Girl.
  • Wham Episode: When Ayaka tried to commit suicide in episode 10.

One of the NEET Detective Team members, a university student whose appearance is that of an elementary-school boy.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Hitoshi is supposedly smart enough to be in university, but plans to drop out and become a NEET. The only reason he stays is because their library has all the books on military and political history he needs.

  • But Not Too Foreign: Meo is half Vietnamese, half Japanese. In the anime, she's half-Japanese, half-Thai.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Meaningful Name: Meo, is derived from "Maeo" (Thai: แมว; Thai pronunciation: [mæːw]), a Thai word meaning "cat". Her real name is Charuni (Thai: จารุณี), a Thai word derived from Pāḷi, Cāruṇī, meaning a young pretty girl.

  • Aloof Big Brother: Towards Narumi, as his sworn brother.
  • Anime Hair
  • Big Damn Heroes: In episode 3.
  • In-Series Nickname: Souchirou is known as the Fourth. Alice gave him the nickname because he hates it and can't stop her from using it, and she thinks that's hilarious.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique
  • Neighbourhood-Friendly Gangsters: Souchirou is taking his group in this direction, pointing out in Page 5 that they can't survive on shady stuff forever. Though they're not above doing some very family-unfriendly things to people who cross them and the lines they set for their territory (like drug-dealing). Souchirou in particular has more than a little blood on his hands, in the past and from current events.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Souchirou's henchmen are incredibly computer illiterate, to the point where Narumi's basic computer skills have earned him the nickname "God Hand".
