Corn worker
Voiced by: Hiroki Takahashi
A 24-year old corn company worker who went to the church to confess for a sin he committed.
  • Anime Hair: Typical Araki design, while his back head looks normal, his front head has three raising corn-like hair shapes.
  • Blessed with Suck: After the death of the vagabond, the vengeful spirit of the vagabond promises that he will have his revenge at the worker's happiest moment. He then gets a lot of money from distant relatives, wins the soccer lottery, marries a model and has a daughter with her. In that moment, the dead vagabond possesses the body of his daughter and tries to kill him.


The Vagabond
Voiced by: Shouto Kashii

Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe Episode 2: Mutsukabezaka

    Minoru Kagamari 

Minoru Kagamari
Voiced by: Takamasa Mogi
Rohan Kishibe's manga editor who's in his first year of the job.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Just hearing Rohan's stories (it should be noted that Rohan is famous for his horror-tinged publications) about yokai is enough to turn him into a nervous wreck and in the three episode gap between Mutsukabezaka and Millionaire Village, he's nowhere to be seen and has been replaced by Kyoka Izumi.

Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe Episode 5: Millionaire Village

    Kyoka Izumi 

Kyoka Izumi
Voiced by: Mai Nakahara
Played by: Marie Iitoyo
Rohan's new editor at Shueisha. She wants to buy a house in a village fabled to bring good luck to those allowed to enter it.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Does she know about Heaven's Door? Her suggestion that Rohan search for material for his manga in the village is rather ambiguous note , and Rohan doesn't even try to hide Heaven's Door from her when he reads Ikkyu. Then again, he sometimes does this in the middle of the street and no-one notices, so there's that.
  • Break the Cutie: She starts the story rather upbeat and cheerful, but panics when she's told she's broken the rules and then completely loses it when she's put through the Trauma Conga Line.
  • Death by Materialism: Almost. Because she's so determined to buy the house, she decides to try again rather than GTFO like she should. As a consequence, Rohan ends up reading Ikkyu and the gods try to punish him by giving her a heart attack.
  • Sigil Spam: Wears Shonen Jump logo on her clothes.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Upon breaking the rules three times, she loses her mother, her boyfriend and the baby bird she's rescued one after another, and then has a heart attack when Rohan breaks a rule. It's all fortunately undone when Rohan outwits the Gods of the Mountain, but the shock of it still leaves her passed out when Rohan takes his leave with her.


Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi
Played by: Kaede Shibasaki
A butler at the so-called Millionaire's Village who resembles a child.
  • Ambiguously Human: His eyes are more of giant black pits. Maybe even more pronounced in the animated OVA, where they seem to be filled with stars.
  • Emotionless Boy: Completely stoic, at least until Rohan starts messing with him.
  • Happiness in Slavery: He has to obey the gods of the mountain in everything, but seems content about it.
  • Mouth of Sauron: He's the only person we see in the village, and he speaks for both the seller of the house and the gods of the mountain (if they aren't one and the same, that is).
  • Not So Stoic: His composure breaks when Heaven's Door causes him to repeatedly break the mountain's rules.
  • Older Than They Look: Probably not a kid, despite his diminutive stature.

    Gods of the Mountain 

Gods of the Mountain
Mythical beings who have both blessed and cursed the Millionaire's Village.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: They consider murder and not following manners to be crimes of equal weight.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: A person commits a minor social faux-pas? Better kill the people close to them and destroy all they hold dear.
  • Don't Go Into the Woods: Their land is covered in a deep forest Rohan and Kyoka have to hike through, and they will kill you if you break the rules inside the village walls.
  • Eldritch Abomination: They're ruthless, follow Blue-and-Orange Morality and can both turn someone into a millionaire as well punish them horribly. Their reach appears to extend far beyond the mountain itself, too, as Kyoka's boyfriend and mother are nowhere near it when she's told they died.
  • Genius Loci: They are based on the mountain, and they're represented by faces in the trees growing there.
  • The Lost Woods: Their home is a forest-covered mountain.

Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe Episode 4: Mochizuki Family Moon Viewing


Noboru Mochizuki
The Mochizuki patriarch, who is worried that his family is cursed and one member will die during the night of the Mid-Autumn Festival if they do not all spend the night together and participate in the moon viewing.


Haruko Mochizuki
Noboru's wife. Noboru is worried about her because he has just learned she has been diagnosed with cervical cancer, spurring the interest in the family curse.


Aki Mochizuki
The elder daughter of the family. She really does not want to stay at home for the moon viewing, as she had plans to meet up with her boyfriend. She is also deathly afraid of being stung by a hornet, having become allergic to one the last time she was stung. She later sneaks out when the rest of her family is asleep to meet up with her boyfriend, drawing the Moon Rabbit to her to try to kill her. She is saved at the last moment when her boyfriend proposes to her, effectively taking her out of the Mochizuki family and freeing her from the curse.


Takeru Mochizuki
The younger son of the Mochizuki family. He too wished to spend time with friends rather than with his family as he is trying to get a baseball scholarship into high school, but he gets into the swing of things when he has the idea to bring the electronics outside.


Mitsu Mochizuki
Noboru's elderly mother. She nearly dies during the moon viewing due to a freak accident involving Takeru's remote control car and the family goldfish flying into her mouth while she's sleeping, but she manages to cough up the goldfish and survives one more year.
    Moon Rabbit 

Moon Rabbit
A humanoid rabbit spirit responsible for the curse on the Mochizuki family should one of them not take part in the moon viewing. He appears from the moon when Aki leaves her sleeping family behind to meet her boyfriend and tries to kill her with a hornet sting, but her boyfriend proposes to her, freeing her from the curse as she will no longer be a Mochizuki.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: There's no explanation as to why the Mochizuki family is cursed, but the Moon Rabbit still tries to kill them for not taking part in the fall moon festival. And he immediately gives up on murdering Aki once her boyfriend pops the question, and kills a random passerby instead.

Thus Spoke Rohan Kishibe Episode 11: The Run

    Yoma Hashimoto 

Yoma Hashimoto

Voiced by: Koki Uchiyama
A man obsessed with exercise. To the point of killing anyone who interferes with his strength training. Who just so happens to be an avatar of the god of muscles, Hermes.
  • Appearance Angst: He is a model who becomes obsessed with personal fitness after growing to like his routine. His constant efforts to improve his physique chip away at his sanity, to the point of accusing his girlfriend of trying to "poison him" with his favorite carb-heavy spaghetti dish, complaining about the delivery man ringing the doorbell and ruining his sleep schedule, and glaring daggers at a man who reserved his personal trainer before him. He eventually snaps and murders his girlfriend, the delivery man, and the other gym-goer because he saw them all as threats to his fitness.
  • Anime Hair: While the gray hair is a slightly strange color, the arrow-like spikes coming out of it are stranger.
  • Destination Defenestration: In response to Rohan taunting him, he sets up an Absurdly High-Stakes Game with him, with the intent of this happening to the loser. While Rohan loses, he uses Heaven's Door to turn the tables on Yoma. However, Rohan believes that Yoma survived the fall, and it is implied that he is correct.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Killing people for interfering with his strength training seems a tad excessive.
  • Serial Killer: He kills anyone who interferes with his training program. Including his girlfriend who threatened to evict him, the delivery man who kept delivering his protein powder while he was sleeping, and the other gym patrons that his trainer was also training.
  • The Unfettered: Nothing will come between him and his training program.
  • Wrong Context Magic: He's an avatar of a Greek god. This actually makes his power Wrong Context Magic to both the JoJo universe as a whole (as it has nothing to do with vampires, Hamon, or Stands) and to Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan specifically (which mostly centers on Japanese legends).

How well does it match the trope?
