     Main Characters 

Tori "Impossible" Aoi
Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English)

Protagonist of the series, Tori Aoi's a carefree young man of utterly average talents. He was placed as President of the Musashi Ariadust Academy Student Council because he thought it'd be easy to control, and even recognizes himself as a poor leader. He doesn't seem to care much, and enjoys his role at his own leisure. He knows a lot of strip jokes and usually plays the idiot. Tori is also the energy of Class 3-Plum, literally: he acts like a living mana battery that can recharge and supply his companions with unlimited reserves, controlling a quarter of Musashi's ether supply, thanks to being one of two viceroys in the city.

  • All-Loving Hero: Despite the goofy pervert he might be, Tori is an optimistic and selfless guy who wants to create a world where everyone's dreams would come true, a belief that earned him the respect of everyone in Musashi.
  • All Work vs. All Play: All Play to Masazumi's All Work.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: He looks pretty good in a dress and has fun fooling men with this.
  • Butt-Monkey: If there's someone here that will always end up getting beaten up, that's Tori. However, he's kinda asking for it with his perversions.
  • Buxom Is Better: He certainly thinks so; in fact, when he writes down a love letter confession to P-01s/Horizon, his classmates are surprised he doesn't mention her bust size in describing the automaton's "positive traits".
  • Childhood Friend Romance: He is in love with his childhood friend Horizon. Later in the light novels, he gets a small harem formed by Horizon and his other childhood friends Asama and Nate.
  • Childhood Friends: He has been friends with several of the members of Class 3-Plum since childhood; Asama, Nate, Suzu and Tenzou among them.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He's a huge pervert who loves groping girls, but he genuinely cares about his female companions, especially Horizon and he only wants to create a better world for everyone and bring back the emotions of the woman he loves.
  • Conveniently Seated: He sits in the back seat next to the window.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He saw his childhood crush getting run over by a carriage and dying right in front of him. To make it worse, the reason she got in the way of the carriage was because she was trying to get away from him after he insulted her cooking.
  • The Heart: He is the one who encourages his crew whenever they feel down and gives them the will to keep figthing no matter what.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: His support powers don't mean much to his friends when they reside in the city and academy grounds of Musashi, as these places are rife with ether for their daily needs and training. Outside Musashi, however, Tori is the key to success, as he can supply his allies with infinite ether reserves to continue fighting without worry.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Watching P-01s/Horizon get taken and being unable to do anything about it.
    • He suffered a severe one when he was a child after losing Horizon. He refused to eat or drink and only stayed in his room throughout the day until his sister Kimi snapped him out of it.
  • Hidden Depths: At first glance, Tori is just an idiotic pervert that no one could take seriously as Musashi's chancellor, but he's actually quite smart when the situation calls for it, serves as Musashi's energy source both figuratively and literally, and he has some deep emotional issues coming from losing the girl he loved and blaming himself for it.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: For many years, he felt responsible for Horizon's death, for the carriage accident wouldn't have happened if he haven't chased after her.
  • Keet: He's loud, optimistic and full of energy. He literally does not know the meaning of "depressed". With good reason, too.
  • Large Ham: He sure enjoys acting in a ridiculous over-the-top manner.
  • Legacy of Service: He comes from a family of loyal servants to the Matsudaira family.
  • Living Battery: When Toori gains the 1/4th governance status in Musashi as a Viceroy, he is given the authority to use 1/4th of the fuel of Divine State of Musashi. Since his contract allows him to share everything he owns with everyone, he can provide an almost endless energy supply for his comrades, improving their abilities to the fullest.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: A complete pervert who shamelessly gropes and sexually harasses girls, even his own teacher and loves to read porn magazines and play eroge games. Yet his perversions are always Played for Laughs and he only gets a few smacks as punishment.
  • The McCoy: Always cheerful and optimistic, Tori is driven by his emotions and instincts.
  • My Greatest Failure: He has always regretted not being able to save Horizon when they were kids. Made worse since she died because she was trying to get away from him after he insulted her cooking.
  • Naked People Are Funny: In Season 2 except for a few scenes.
  • Non-Action Guy: Not the useless kind, but he's plenty lacking in the combat field.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity:
    • When debating against Masazumi Honda on rescuing Horizon Ariadust from the K.P.A. Italia, he took the stance of not rescuing Horizon, thereby forcing the more adept-at-debating Masazumi to take the opposite stance. Not pleasant, but actual debating does assign people to motions they should defend regardless of personal preference.
    • In episode 12, Horizon consigns herself to death; Tori argues against her views by using a parallel argument and convinces her to leave with him.
  • Opposites Attract: He is a loud, goofy and fun-loving Keet while the woman he loves P-01s/Horizon is a quiet, analytical and no-nonsense Emotionless Girl.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He rarely stops smiling, no matter what happens. Justified since if he ever stops being happy, he literally will die.
  • Personality Powers: He sure is energetic, isn't he? Perhaps he got some to share.
  • The Pollyanna: There is nothing that can depress this guy. He will always see the bright side of things no matter what. Justified since as a condition to his contract to the Asama Shrine for his powers, being sad will literally kill him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • The loud, happy-go-lucky and emotional Red Oni to Horizon's quiet, emotionless and analytical Blue Oni.
    • Also the carefree and outgoing Red Oni to Masazumi's more serious and reserved Blue Oni.
  • Robosexual: He is in love with the automated doll P-01s. Although he fell in love with her back when she was a human.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has a scar circling his left shoulder.
  • Shameless Fanservice Guy: He has no problem with stripping naked in front of his entire class or going around naked for most of the second season.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite all that goofiness and perversion, Tori is quite sharp.
  • Spanner in the Works: If his move under Obfuscating Stupidity doesn't earn him this title, pantsing Masazumi and throwing off Pope President Innocentius' attempts to undermine her definitely does.
  • Student Council President: He is the president of the Musashi Ariadust Academy Student Council, which in this series equals to the position of a chancellor.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: Often, specifically with Makiko Oriotorai, Nate Mitotsudaira, Suzu Mukai and Horizon.
  • Unable to Cry: His contract has as a condition that he can never cry or feel sad, otherwise he will die.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The day Horizon died, she cooked breakfast for him, but he said it tasted terrible. Horizon ran away crying and Tori chased after her. As Horizon tried to get away from him, she got run over by a carriage which resulted in her death.
  • Useless Protagonist: Subverted. As his nickname "Impossible" suggests, there seems to be nothing Tori can do and his companions have to handle everything instead. However, Tori proves himself useful when he resupplies his companions' energy. Also, his Obfuscating Stupidity helps in some situations.
  • White Mage: A rare male protagonist example, as he buffs and resupplies his allies' energy.

P-01s/Horizon Ariadust
Voiced by: Minori Chihara (Japanese), Emily Neves (English)

An automated doll who works at the bakery Blue Thunder, P-01s randomly appeared on Musashi one day with no memories and was taken in by the bakery's shopkeeper. She bears a mysterious resemblance to Tori's deceased childhood friend Horizon, which attracts him to her. She's later revealed to be Horizon herself, whose soul was put in a robotic body after her death and had her emotions removed for the creation of the Deadly Sin Armaments. The second of two viceroys assigned in Musashi by Yoshinao.

  • Amnesiac Hero: She has no memories of her origins, her identity and her life as a human.
  • Brain Uploading: She originally was a human girl, but she died in an unfortunate accident. Then, her father put her soul in a robotic body. Horizon has no memories of her life as a human, but according to the people who knew her, her personality is pretty much the same.
  • Chaste Heroine: Since she is an automaton without emotions, matters like feelings and romance are confusing for her. She doesn't even know what having sex is.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Although she has no memories prior to her rebirth, she was childhood friends with Tori, who has always loved her. She eventually reciprocates his feelings.
  • The Comically Serious: She keeps her emotionless personality even in the middle of comedic moments.
  • Cry Cute: She regains the emotion of sadness and the ability to cry at the end of the first season after Futayo takes the Lype Kataslypsi from Muneshige. And God, this Emotionless Girl looks adorable when she cries.
  • Damsel in Distress: The second half of Season 1 is about saving her from her execution for illegal possession of one of the Armors of Deadly Sins and the destruction of Mikawa at hands of her father.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She never misses the chance to snark at the situation.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Starts out as an Emotionless Girl without any interest in Tori and she doesn't want to regain her emotions since she thinks they will only bring her sadness. Tori eventually gets her to open up to him as he convinces her that she can feel positive emotions and she falls in love with him.
  • Devoted to You: In the 10 years that she was gone, Tori never forgot about Horizon and once he discovers she is still alive as an android, he readily declares war on the entire world to get his beloved's emotions back and see Horizon's smile again.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Tooshi Douka ("Song of Passage")
  • Doppelgänger Replacement Love Interest: P-01s bears a mysterious resemblance to Horizon Ariadust, Tori's lost love which attracts him to her. It's soon revealed that P-01s is Horizon reborn in a robotic body, but she can't remember her life as a human.
  • Emotionless Girl: As an automated doll, P-01s lacks emotions. Turns out she used to be a human girl with plenty of emotions, but she lost them upon the creation of the Deadly Sin Armaments.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She is actually Tori's childhood friend Horizon who was revived in a robotic body, but she can't remember him.
  • Hair Decorations: Back when she was a human, she wore a white ribbon in her head.
  • Harem Seeker: Played in a very unusual way in later volumes of the light novel. Horizon wishes Asama and Nate to join in as Tori's lovers. The reasoning for this is that Horizon feels Tori needs to be surrounded by women who love and support him in ways she can't, otherwise he will eventually suffer an emotional breakdown.
  • Heroic Albino: The main heroine with pale white skin and grey hair.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Given how Akēdia Katathlipsē bound her entire body, Horizon has some serious self-esteem issues.
  • He Will Not Cry, So I Cry for Him: Once she regains the emotion of sadness, Tori asks her to cry in his place since now crying or just feeling sad will kill him.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: She gets this as a power in Season 2. It's how she carries all the Armors of Deadly Sins around.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Her blue eyes reflect her emotionless and analytical personality.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: After hearing about her origins, she says would have rather keep living as a normal waitress at the bakery Blue Thunder instead of being the representative of Far East and the ruler of Mikawa.
  • Lethal Chef: She even goes Blue with Shock on her own cooking. This sort of started things off since she died because of a chain of events triggered by Tori saying that her cooking was terrible.
  • MacGuffin Super Person: Her body contains the ninth Armor of Deadly Sins Ólos Phthonos, which serves as the unification operating system for all the Armors. The Testament Union wants to have her executed because of her power and the second half of the first season is centered around saving her.
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: After her death, her father put her soul into an android body which contains the ninth Deadly Sin Armament. He then removed her emotions and used them for the creation of the other Deadly Sin Armaments.
  • Mystical Waif: She is the bearer of the Armor of Deadly Sins Ólos Phthonos, the most valuable of the nine Armors of Deadly Sins as its "unification operating system". Ólos Phthonos is the system that taps into Horizon's soul, allowing Horizon to use the Soul Activation of all Armors of Deadly Sins. The heroes make their goal to gather the nine Armors of Deadly Sins to bring Horizon her emotions back and stop the apocalypse.
  • Mystical White Hair: She's an automaton who has silver hair, which hints at her artificial origins and the fact that she is an Armor of Deadly Sins and has a human soul.
  • No Social Skills: She isn't very socially well-adjusted. In one occasion, she asks what "having sex" means along Azuma.
  • Oblivious to Love: She didn't realize Tori loves her until he flat out told her. This is after he went to Blue Thunder just to see her everyday and Tori declared war on the entire world for her.
  • Ojou: Horizon is the heiress of the privileged Matsudaira family, which serves as the representative of the Far East and rulers of Mikawa.

  • Phlebotinum Girl: As the bearer of the ninth Armor of Deadly Sins, she's the key to her father's "Genesis Project" to stop the apocalypse. Her existence alone causes Musashi to be at odds with the rest of the Harmonic Divine States.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair stretches down past her hips.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The quiet, emotionless and analytical Blue Oni to Tori's loud, happy-go-lucky and emotional Red Oni.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Pale skin? Check. Silvery-white hair? Check. Blue eyes? Check. Robot Girl? Check. Emotionless and quiet demeanor? Check. Love interest? Check. Mysterious Waif with a troubled past and origins unknown even to herself? Check. Gains more emotions over time? Check. The key to her father's project to stop an apocalypse? Check.
  • Robot Girl: She is an automated doll.
  • Robot Names: P-01s, which is the shortened form of the designation "Phtonos-01s", the operating system for the Armor of Deadly Sins. Though after The Reveal of who she really is, everyone calls her Horizon.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: "Ariadust" is "tsudaira", the last character in "Matsudaira", reversed.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Although she's annoyed by his antics, she falls in love with the cheerful and optimistic Tori.

  • Tears from a Stone: Automated dolls are supposed to lack any emotion that allows them to cry, yet Horizon becomes able to cry once she regains the emotion of sadness.
  • Third-Person Person: She refers to herself in third person.
  • Top Wife: Horizon is undoubtedly the love of Tori's life and the one who should become his official wife. Later in the light novels, the option of letting Asama and Nate join in as Tori's concubines/mistresses begins to be explored... at Horizon's insistence.
  • Tsundere: A rare stoic version of this towards Tori. She tends to be rude and harsh towards him, feeling annoyed at Toori's foolish and perverted antics. Her 'punishments' towards him include frequent punches to his crotch, as well as chiding. Despite that, everyone around her can clearly see Horizon does care about Tori, she just doesn't like openly showing it.
  • Unusual Ears: She has heat radiators and various sensors that appear hair accessories instead of ears.
  • Uptown Girl: Horizon is a member of the privileged Matsudaira family, while Tori comes from a family of loyal servants to her family.
  • Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: Most of her harsh and critical behavior towards Tori comes from her expectations that he improves himself and stops acting like a perverted fool. She usually gives him the Groin Attack when he takes his antics too far.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: When Tori confesses his love for her, Horizon tells him that since she is an automated doll without emotions, she can't understand or reciprocate his feelings. She eventually does come to develop feelings for him and this makes her wish to understand human emotions more.

     Musashi Ariadust Academy - Class 3-Plum 

Masazumi Honda
Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese), Genevieve Simmons (English)

Student council vice-president, Masazumi is serious-minded, skilled in speaking, and hard-working; effectively, she's Tori's exact opposite. Due to a significant lack of *ahem* assets, he continuously picks on her. Masazumi aspires to become a politician, though she can't help but feel reluctant about it.

  • A-Cup Angst: With a damn good Tear Jerker reason, too. She had to undergo a mastectomy in preparation for her gender reassignment when she was younger. She's understandably sensitive about her flat chest.
  • All Work vs. All Play: All Work to Tori's All Play.
  • Alternate Character Reading: The characters for Masazumi's name can also be read as "Seijun" (meaning "purity" in Japanese), which is how Tori and some other of her classmates call her.
  • Bifauxnen: A swift Deconstruction. To have a better chance to inherit the name of Masanobu Honda's son, she underwent several gender reassignment procedures, including a mastectomy. The procedure stopped partway through when her father was dismissed as a vassal. As a result, now she has an androgynous appearance and a flat chest. She also chooses male clothing because it doesn't feel right to her to dress like a girl after trying to change her body.
  • Big "WHAT?!": After Tori chose the side of not rescuing Horizon during their debate.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: When she was young, Masazumi wanted to officially inherit the name of Masanobu Honda's son after her father failed to inherit Masanobu's name. Since the historical Masazumi Honda was a man, she had to undergo several gender reassignment procedures to increase her chances of being selected for the name. However, Masazumi lost her reason for the name succession after Motonobu Matsudaira replaced his vassals with automatons. Years later, her mother suddenly disappeared and was later reported as spirited away. After this, she moved to Musashi with her father.
  • Foil: To Tori. He is well liked by his classmates yet not taken seriously by most people, and he constantly slacks off and is no good as a leader. Masazumi, on the other hand, is, while not disliked, more distant towards her classmates yet is respected by virtually everyone, and she is a very diligent worker and a skilled leader.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Masazumi is a masculine Japanese name.
  • Guile Heroine: She may not have combat skills, but she is the one in charge of the political issues and negotiations for the Musashi. And let's not forget the time she epically manipulated Innocentius into deactivating his Statseis Porneia.
  • Kick Chick: She is quite good at kicking things, as shown whenever she kicks Tori for embarrassing her or just plain doing something stupid.
  • The Lancer: The official Number Two in the student council and has a more serious and competent personality than Tori.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother was spirited away some time before the start of the series.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Named after the the historical samurai Masazumi Honda, the eldest son of Masanobu Honda.
  • Number Two: To Tori in the Musashi Ariadust Academy Student Council.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The more serious and reserved Blue Oni to Tori's carefree and outgoing Red Oni.
  • The Reliable One: Very responsible and can handle political work better than Tori ever could.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks just like her deceased mother.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She is a nice and sensitive girl, but she is also very serious and rational, focusing more on work and following rules than her personal enjoyment.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the second season, Tomo gives her an anteater Mouse which allows her to use magic.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: She initially wears a male uniform because she finds it uncomfortable to wear girl's clothes after trying to reassign her gender. She starts wearing a female uniform after Innocentius tells her to start dressing like a girl already, but she still wears the male uniform's jacket.

Toussaint Neshinbara
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura (Japanese), Beth Lazarou (English)

The student council secretary, despite being rather dry and critical of the antics of the class, Toussaint Neshinbara's an utter romanticist at heart and is fond of history. Despite wishing to be a novelist, he is the head strategist of Musashi's forces during wartime.

  • Parental Abandonment: He is an orphan who lost both parents in Battle of Lepanto.
  • Rewriting Reality: Whatever Toussaint writes can be turned into reality, affecting himself, his opponents or the environment.
  • You Are Number 6: He was only known as "Number Thirteen" back when he was a war orphan in an orphanage in Tres España.

Shirojiro Bertoni
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese), Justin Doran (English)

Always looking to make a quick buck, Shirojiro Bertoni sells the class magical items. Although he's the student council treasurer, he's essentially a miser blessed by the God of Commerce "Sanct".

  • Cast from Money: His Shinto contract explicitly allows him to buy power from others and use it as his own.
  • Intrepid Merchant: So long as there's a profit involved. In fact, him being this is the reason why he sides against the Testament Union.
  • Money Fetish: He is thinking and talking about money all the time.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Almost never smiles in the series, though there's a glint in his eyes when the subject of money is discussed.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Savvy Guy to Heidi's Energetic Girl.
  • The Stoic: Which coined him the name "Poker Face" by the Testatment Union.

Heidi Augesvarer
Voiced by: Kaori Nazuka (Japanese), Cynthia Martinez (English)

Shirojiro's girlfriend, and effectively his shadow, Heidi Augesvarer is the student council assistant treasurer and is always in tow with him and just as greedy. Due to his contract with Sanct, Heidi acts as Shirojiro's broker whenever he's in combat.

Kimi Aoi
Voiced by: Chiwa Saito (Japanese), Maggie Flecknoe (English)

Tori's equally loud, over-bearing older sister, the overly-dramatic Kimi Aoi changes her name on a weekly basis because of increasingly vapid reasons. She has a contract with the god of public entertainment "Uzume", specializing in eroticism and dancing.

  • Ambiguously Gay: She usually flirts with the girls and makes not-so-subtle advances towards them. She once kissed her Schoolgirl Lesbian classmate Malga to snap her out of her angst rant.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While her normal behavor makes her look idiotic, if you ever challenge her to a fight, BE PREPARED.
  • Dance Battler: A variant, as it's not in the traditional sense. She doesn't beat her opponents with dance moves; she uses dancing to invoke the god Uzume's power and create barriers that block attacks at incredible speeds.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!:
    • When Tori was suffering a severe depression because of Horizon's death in the past, Kimi threw Tori out of a window and snapped him out of his funk by cramming a hot sauces and spices down his throat, including the bottle, and then jamming her whole hand down his mouth.
    • Gives a TORNADO UPPERCUT, followed by a "Shut Up" Kiss bite to Malga in episode 9 of S2, then chastises her for trying to guilt Margot into letting her join the battle and possibly die, saying that a Senseless Sacrifice is not the way to prove herself equal to Margot.
    Kimi: Listen. This is what you just said, "If I die, it's because of you, Knight. I got beaten to death, but I did it for you and don't you ever forget it." You think sacrificing yourself is enough to stay with someone?
  • Good Bad Girl: She is a flamboyant pervert, yes, but she is also a really nice and caring Cool Big Sis.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hair is adorned with lengths of white cloth.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Kimi manages to weaponize erotic dancing. Because of the contract with her god, she can avoid being touched by anyone who she doesn't want to touch her. Minor damage actually adds to the offering to her god, making her even stronger, and she uses the clothing she removes to block attacks from Futayo's Slicing Dragonfly.
  • I Have Many Names: Played for Laughs at the start of the series, with Margot Knight complaining about her changing through stage names too fast. The kicker? She considers all of them as her true names, granting her protection against Slicing Dragonfly's ability.
  • It Runs in the Family: She and her brother are very similiar. Large Ham, Trolling, Fanservice and they're Crazy Awesome.
  • Large Ham: Just like her brother, Kimi just loves to be ridiculously hammy.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her contract with the goddess Uzume is specialized in eroticism and dancing, after all. The more sexy she is, the more powerful she becomes.
  • The Nicknamer: Some examples include:
    • Tori: "Foolish/Silly Brother"
    • Masazumi: "Boobless Politician"
    • Futayo: "Clueless Woman"
    • Neshinbara: "Fanfic Writer"
    • Tenzo: "Ninja"
    • And she calls herself "Ingenious Sister".
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Her eroticism-specialized contract with her god allows her to become untouchable to anyone she chooses. Any attack directed to her by her opponent will either miss or be blocked.
  • The Power of Rock: When fighting at full strength, she sings; as a bonus, it's also her Image Song. What's more, the lyrics seem to describe her fighting techniques.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is about as long as she's tall.
  • Stone Wall: She doesn't have any offensive attacks, but her defensive barriers make her an untouchable fortress.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers one to Futayo after the latter is unable to get any valid hits on Kimi during their fight, along with some Armor Piercing Slaps.

Tomo Asama
Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

Tori and Kimi's childhood friend, Tomo Asama uses her spiritual connection as the Asama Shrine's priestess to shoot her bow and arrow with precision.

  • Badass Pacifist: Refuses to deliberately harm anyone with her arrows (except Tori). She still fulfills a number of supporting functions during combat, however.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Asama has been in love with her childhood friend Tori for a long time, but tried to suppress her feelings because of Tori's love for Horizon. This is until Horizon herself encourages her to accept her feelings and join Tori's harem.
  • Childhood Friends: She has been good friends with the Aoi siblings, Horizon and Nate since elementary school.
  • Covert Pervert: If what she wrote down on her essay while she was fantasizing about how far would Tori and Horizon go if his love confession went well is to be believed...

  • Nude-Colored Clothes: The leotard of her miko outfit is skin-colored.
  • Hair Decorations: She has a red ribbon on the back of her hair.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: For a long time, Asama did her best to suppress her feelings for Tori, simply wishing him to be happy with Horizon. Later in the light novels though, Horizon herself lets her and Nate know that she's okay with sharing Tori with them so that he can have more emotional support from all the girls who love him.
  • Magical Eye: Her left green eye is an artificial eye called Konoha that she uses for precision shooting.
  • Miko: She's the shrine maiden of the Asama Shrine.
  • Nice Girl: Polite, gentle and caring.
  • Patient Childhood Love Interest: She has known Tori since they were children and has harbored feelings for him for a long time, but she never acted on them, mainly because she knew Tori never got over Horizon.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to her knees.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has dark blue-purple hair.

  • Failure Knight: Back when Horizon was human, Nate promised to protect her. Horizon's death made Nate feel she had failed her promise and she even tried to leave Musashi out of guilt.

Futayo Honda
Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi (Japanese), Carli Mosier (English)

The only daughter of Tadakatsu and Masazumi's second cousin, Futayo is also the head of the Mikawa Security Corps. Because she has only ever received combat training from her father, she's incredibly clueless about the world and easily embarrassed. She's currently enrolled at Musashi Ariadust Academy serving as Vice-Chancellor.

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Tadakatsu Honda's red, Masanobu is from the administrative branch of the Honda Clan. In contrast to Tadakatsu, he's calm, calculating and collected. Incidentally, they both lost their wives.

Tadakatsu Honda
Voiced by: Sumi Naomi (Japanese), Mike Yager (English)

Father of Futayo and one of the Four Divine Matsudaira Kings, Tadakatsu's a soldier of remarkable ability, and was once called the "Peerless of the East". He's also the holder of the Divine Arms "Slicing Dragonfly".

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: The Slicing Dragonfly's Normal Activation allows it to cut anything physical reflected by the blade. For greater absurdity, the weapon's Superior Activation is cutting any "concept" that can be imagined by its wielder.

  • Brain Uploading: Just like P-01s/Horizon, Kazuno is a human woman whose soul was put in an automaton body after her death.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears an armored ornament on the head, which is shaped like deer woods.
  • Half the Woman She Used to Be: Redirected a shot from Muneshige Tachibana's Lype Katathlipse that blew off her lower body, leaving her upper torso.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is derived from Tadakatsu Honda's famous deer-antler helmet he wears in battle.
  • Robotic Spouse: As a replication of Tadakatsu's late wife, she takes care of him and his daughter and cooks just like his wife did. Makes sense, since she really is his wife. Tadakatsu put her soul in an robotic body after her death.

  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His "Genesis Project" is supposed to save the world from the apocalypse, but his methods include putting the soul of his own daughter in an android body and using her emotions to create the Deadly Sin Armaments, as well as blowing up the capital city of the Far East, Mikawa.

  • Rewriting Reality: Like Toussaint, Shakespeare weaponizes this, but uses Macbeth as an example. In her fight against him, she places the role of the titular character onto Toussaint, cursing him.

  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She acts cold and calm, yet she's able to smile and be cute once you get her to open up.
  • When She Smiles: Toussaint blushes when he sees her smile.
