The Kaitous

    Maron Kusakabe aka Kaitou Jeanne 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charjeanne_maron.jpg
Voiced by: Houko Kuwashima (JP), Carmen Podio (SP)

Maron Kusakabe is a 16-year-old Highschool student, living alone for the past 6 years. One day, angel Finn Fish tells her that she's the reincarnation of Joan of Arc and has the power to capture demons who possess pieces of art. When the story begins, she's been active as a Kaitou for about a month, and only starts to grasp the scope of her mission.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Maron has light brown hair in the manga but darker brown in the anime.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: To Chiaki.
  • Babies Ever After: In the manga, Maron and Chiaki are shown to have a daughter, Natsuki.
  • Break the Cutie: Maron has been the victim of one of these, planned and executed since her birth, due to being the reincarnation of Jeanne d'Arc.
  • Broken Ace: Maron presents herself as a confident young woman, has no trouble making friends at school, is a good student and a very talented rhythmic gymnast. Only Miyako and Chiaki know she actually stepford smiles her way through it.
  • Broken Bird: Maron became this because of Parental Abandonment. Because of their work, her parents often left her alone as a little girl, and it's implied that, even when they were home, they fought a lot. Before Maron was even ten years old, they moved overseas for their jobs, leaving Maron behind. At the start of the series, Maron hasn't gotten a single letter or phone call from either of them since. She hides her sadness most of the time, but the only reason she's anything resembling okay when the series begins is because Finn's around and she doesn't have to spend every night alone in her apartment any more. Though having her best friend, Miyako, and her family right across the hall probably helps.
  • Brought Down to Normal: At the end of the manga, Maron gives up her kaitou powers in order to grant a dying Finn the ability to reincarnate.
  • Bully Hunter: Ever since her kindergarten days Maron has been this. Miyako reveals in a side story that Maron has always defended her when she was wrongfully accused of something, and is eternally grateful for that.
  • Calling Card: In true Kaitou fashion, Finn sends a message to the owner of the possessed piece of art, announcing when Jeanne will appear to steal it.
  • Chekhov's Hobby: Her exceptional skills at rhythmic gymnastics come in handy during her Kaitou work at night.
  • Childhood Friends: Maron and Miyako have known each other since kindergarten, have always lived in the same apartment complex and are best friends.
  • The Chosen One: Having received Gods power, Maron ist he only one who can fight demons without getting possessed by them.
  • Clark Kenting: Averted. Maron and Jeanne have completely different hair and eye colors and hairstyles, instead of just wearing different clothes. However, some people notice that they look remarkably similar. Since Arina Tanemura's work has a bad case of Only Six Faces, we have to take their word for it.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: In her second transformation.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Maron has brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Maron and Noin end up in fifteenth-century Europe. Subverted with Noin who originally came from that time.
  • Foemance: Jeanne and Sinbad are rivals but fall in love anyway.
  • Forceful Kiss: Maron is on the receiving end of a lot of these from Chiaki and Noin.
  • Frills of Justice: Ribbons, wide sleeves and flowy outfits aren't exactly the appropriate dresscode for a burglar, but Jeanne has divine power on her side.
  • Hair Intakes: Her signature hairstyle as both Maron and Jeanne.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: When setting out on another mission to capture a demon, she turns into Jeanne, who has blond hair.
  • Hates Being Alone: Maron is introduced as a lonely girl who has been living by herself in an apartment while her parents have been working abroad for years. Although she tries to pretend to be strong and plucky, she's actually quite fragile inside and easily falls apart when she learns her parents have divorced. While she does have a social circle of people who care for her, she's still absolutely terrified of feeling abandoned again, and later entreats her love interest, Chiaki, not to leave her alone while she cries into his chest.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: From Maron about Chiaki.
  • Heroic BSoD: Maron falls into despair at different points in the series. Namely when she gets news that her parents are getting divorced and when the Awful Truth of the story is revealed.
  • Identical Stranger: Even though Maron averts Clark Kenting, many people notice how similar she looks to Jeanne.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Jeanne's main weapon is a gymnastics ribbon.
  • Improvised Cross: In chapter 12 her rosario is stolen and she makes one of cardboard and goes as Maron instead.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Over the course of the story, Maron mentions many times that she's strong and comfortable in her lonelyless. Underneath it all, she Hates Being Alone and loses nothing from accepting help.
    Maron: "I'm strong. I'm not a weak girl who needs to be protected... I don't need your help."
  • Jeanne d'Archétype: Played straight, she's the reincarnation of the actual Jeanne d'Arc. Who, in the manga, is the reincarnation of the biblical Eve.
  • Kaitou: She mostly steals priceless pieces of art, leaves a Calling Card, is very acrobatic and doesn't steal for personal gain.
  • Light Is Not Good: Her actions as a Kaitou didn't help God at all. On the contrary.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Played for Drama. Consisting of several love triangles, but Triang Relations doesn't quite cover it anymore. Both Maron and Miyako fall in love with Chiaki, who pretends to flirt with Maron but later actually falls in love with her. Yamato has an unreciprocated crush on Maron and later falls for Miyako. Noin actually loves Jeanne d'Arc but believes in a Reincarnation Romance with Maron, who's not interested at all.
  • Magic Skirt: Jeanne. Maron usually has one, but apparently it turns off when Chiaki's around.
  • Mirror Match: The final battle in the manga has Maron fighting an evil twin version of herself.
  • Mission from God: Jeanne steals paintings that are possessed by demons who want to weaken God. Subverted when Jeanne finds out she's been working for the Devil this whole time without knowing it.
  • Modesty Shorts: Her costume.
  • Must Not Die a Virgin: In the manga before the Final Battle, Maron finally breaks down in front of Chiaki, who responds in kind.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When Jeanne doesn't show up to capture a demon in chapter 7, Chiaki knows something's very wrong.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: As per usual for the genre, Maron appears to be this until you learn of her Secret Identity.
  • Parental Abandonment: Maron's parents both moved overseas when she was small and never call or write her.
  • Power Gives You Wings: During her transformation.
  • Purple Eyes: They indicate Jeanne's divine power compared to Maron's brown eyes.
  • Reincarnation: Not only is Maron the reincarnation of Jeanne d'Arc, but in the manga she and Jeanne are also the reincarnation of Eve. Yes, that Eve.
  • Reincarnation Romance: At the end of the manga, it's revealed that Marron, and Jeanne and the reincarnations before Jeanne, are all reincarnations of Eve, while Chiaki is implied to be Adam's reincarnation.
  • Sacred First Kiss: Her first kiss is stolen by her rival Sinbad, who is her later love interest Chiaki in disguise.
  • Secret Identity:
    • Played straight towards most of the world, including Miyako. Nobody can know Maron is Jeanne.
    • Really downplayed between Chiaki and Maron in the manga, played up in the anime. In the manga both of them are aware that the other knows their secret identity by the beginning of chapter 6.
  • She-Fu: Fighting policemen and demons involves lots of jumps, kicks and acrobatics.
  • Sprouting Ears: Maron does this sometimes in the manga. Usually when thinking of Kaitou Sinbad.
  • Starcrossed Lovers: Her and Chiaki's relationship is played up as this, with him working for the Devil and being her rival. Ultimately subverted, Chiaki doesn't work for the Devil and opposed her for different reasons.
  • Stepford Smiler: She tries to appear like a confident, lighthearted Ordinary Highschool Student, when in reality she's a Broken Bird.
  • Take a Third Option: Maron tries this with a boy whose heart is possessed by a demon. It doesn't work.
  • Transformation Sequence: The second one is really long.
    • Interestingly does she only have one in the anime, her transformation is never seen in the manga.
  • Transformation Trinket: The rosaries. Subverted at the end, however. Maron no longer needs it since she's no longer using the power of her trinket, but the power of her self-belief.
  • Tsundere: Maron towards Chiaki.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Jeanne herself in Satan's scheme.
  • Virgin Power: Maron can only turn into Jeanne if she's "pure". This leads to Noin attempting to rape her so that she can no longer become Jeanne. As it turns out, though, that's not the definition of "pure". Being "pure" means having a pure soul and believing in your own purity, and Maron realizes this about halfway through the series, also inspiring hope in her past reincarnation.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Miyako spend the first few chapters screaming at each other whenever they get the chance. They're actually Childhood Friends and Miyako knows exactly how lonely Maron feels.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: She hunts demons and runs from the police at night, is a student and gymnast by day.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Maron asks Finn this after the latter reveals that she's been evil all along. They initially say that yes, it was all a lie, although she later admits that she did really love Maron.
  • Well Done Daughter Gal: Maron confesses to Chiaki that she has her parents' addresses and phone numbers but never contacts them for fear of being rejected.
  • Whip It Good: Her Weapon of Choice. It can even cut though solid objects and trap people.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: The girls' school uniforms are A grade.

    Chiaki Nagoya aka Kaitou Sinbad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charjeanne_chiaki.jpg
Voiced by: Susumu Chiba (JP), Juan Antonio Soler (SP)

Chiaki Nagoya is Maron and Miyako's new neighboor and classmate who instantly charms both of them. Not by coincidence, soon a new Kaitou with the same powers as Jeanne, called Sinbad, appears. Since he introduces himself as Jeanne's rival, Maron and Finn conclude that he captures demons for the Devil.


  • Adaptational Heroism: While his personality stayed pretty much the same in the anime as it was in the manga, Manga!Chiaki Jumped at the Call and asked questions later, Anime!Chiaki knew about the Devil's plan from the start.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job:
    • Chiaki goes from light blue hair in the manga to a darker shade in the anime. Arina Tanemura has also drawn him with blond hair for some images but it seems his true color is light blue.
    • Sinbad's hair in the manga also has a light shade of blue. In the anime it's simply white.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication: The anime never explains why Chiaki, a normal human, is able to see Access and receive the power to seal demons. The manga's heavily implied explanation that Chiaki is the reincarnation of Adam is absent from the anime.
  • "Arabian Nights" Days: Sinbad and Access's wardrobe looks like this.
  • Arranged Marriage: He was betrothed to Yashiro Sazanka which was strongly encouraged by their parents. He doesn't consider it a mutual agreement and has already started falling for Maron when he meets Yashiro again.
  • Badass Longcoat: Sinbad's thieving ensemble.
  • Babies Ever After: In the manga, Maron and Chiaki are shown to have a daughter, Natsuki.
  • Becoming the Mask: Chiaki woos and flirts with Maron in an attempt to get close to her and eventually stop Jeanne from hunting demons. Before long he genuinely falls in love with her.
  • Break Her Heart to Save Her: Discussed and consciously averted in the anime. While telling Maron about the Devil's Evil Plan and breaking her heart in the process may have helped her, it would've shattered the holy barrier which protects her against the demons. The trope doesn't show up in the manga; after some hesitation he tells Maron about the Devil's plan as soon as he finds out.
  • Calling Card: Like Jeanne, Chiaki has Access send a message announcing when he intends to steal another piece of art.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: He hates his father for remarrying three times after his mother died, and tells him as much. Turned into a rather sweet moment when his father reveals that he keeps remarrying because none of the women are as great as his first love, and because he thinks Chiaki needs a mother.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Chiaki, despite being opposed to Jeanne in his role as Kaitou Sinbad, tends to act this way towards girls, but Maron in particular. He did originally approach her with an ulterior motive, but developed real feelings for her instead.
  • Clark Kenting: Played very differently in the manga and the anime.
    • The anime has Chiaki and Sinbad look exactly alike – barring costume, hair color and demon fighting powers – which is why he has to veil most of his face. When Maron first sees Sinbads entire face, she immediately sees it's Chiaki.
    • Sinbad doesn't conceal his face in the manga. Maron finds out his identity when she sees him transform. When she later confronts him with this knowledge, he's shocked. Interestingly, to the reader Chiaki and Sinbad look alike, just like in the anime. Then again, Arina Tanemura's work has a bad case of Only Six Faces, so for all we know they look completely different.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Chiaki acts like this toward Maron at times, like when he yells at her for simply talking to another guy when he and Maron aren't even dating yet.
  • Dating Catwoman: Jeanne and Sinbad are rivals but fall in love anyway.
  • Frills of Justice: A rare male example. A Badass Longcoat probably isn't an appropriate outfit for a burglar. Access's powers probably help here.
  • Handsome Lech: In the beginning he comes off as this as opposed to a Chivalrous Pervert, because the audience considers his actions as Sinbad and him lying to Maron a vice.
  • Hero Antagonist: Sinbad opposes Jeanne because she actually works for the devil without knowing it.
  • Jumped at the Call: Played straight in the manga, where he only asks Access about what's going on in chapter 16. He doesn't know anything about the Devil's plan or the fact that Maron thinks he's working for the Devil. Really downplayed in the anime, where he doesn't hesitate to help Access but is aware of the Devil's plan from the start.
  • Kaitou: He mostly steals priceless pieces of art, leaves a Calling Card, is very acrobatic and doesn't steal for personal gain.
  • Knife Nut: Sinbad is shown using knives as another Weapon of Choice.
  • Ladykiller in Love: Chiaki can make every girl he meets swoon, is very charming and attempts to use this on Maron. He soon finds himself actually falling in love with Maron.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Played for Drama. Consisting of several love triangles, but Triang Relations doesn't quite cover it anymore. Both Maron and Miyako fall in love with Chiaki, who pretends to flirt with Maron but later actually falls in love with her. Yamato has an unreciprocated crush on Maron and later falls for Miyako. Noin actually loves Jeanne d'Arc but believes in a Reincarnation Romance with Maron, who's not interested at all.
  • Love You and Everybody: Chiaki is very charming towards every young woman he meets, leading Maron to doubt his feelings. Little does she know he's already a Ladykiller in Love at this point.
    Maron: "I see... Chiaki is kind to anybody, it's the same with any girl... Why did I think that I was the only person that was special?"
  • Missing Mom: Chiaki's died when he was five.
  • New Transfer Student: He transfers to Maron and Miyako's highschool at the beginning of the series.
  • Razor Floss: Chiaki uses this towards the end of the anime.
  • Reincarnation: In the manga, Chiaki is heavily implied to be Adam's reincarnation.
  • Reincarnation Romance: At the end of the manga, it's revealed that Marron, and Jeanne and the reincarnations before Jeanne, are all reincarnations of Eve, while Chiaki is implied to be Adam's reincarnation.
  • The Rival: He presents himself as the rival to Kaitou Jeanne and goes after the same pieces of art she targets, intending to seal the demon first.
  • Secret Identity:
    • Played straight towards most of the world. Nobody can know Chiaki is Sinbad.
    • Really downplayed between Chiaki and Maron in the manga, played up in the anime. In the manga both of them are aware that the other knows their secret identity by the beginning of chapter 6.
  • Shared Family Quirks: His talent of attracting hordes of women is inherited from his father.
  • Shoot the Dog: Sinbad burning the photographer's house. This generally seems to be Sinbad's raison d'etre.
  • Starcrossed Lovers: His and Maron's relationship is played up as this, with him working for the Devil and being her rival. Ultimately subverted, Chiaki doesn't work for the Devil and opposed her for different reasons.
  • Transformation Sequence: Interestingly it's only shown (once) in the manga, but never in the anime.
  • Transformation Trinket: The rosaries. Subverted at the end, however. Chiaki no longer needs to transform to use his power, since Maron knows it's him.
  • Whip It Good: His Weapon of Choice, just like Jeanne's. It can even cut though solid objects and trap people.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He appears as Jeanne's enemy who captures demons for the Devil. His hair in the anime is white, in the manga it's a light shade of blue. The black heart doesn't end up being true.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is blue.

Heaven and Hell

    Finn Fish 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kkj_fynn.jpg
Voiced by: Kumiko Nishihara (JP), Miriam Valencia (SP)

Finn is a small angel sent by God to support Maron in her fight against the Devil. She gives her the rosary, helps her transform and sends Jeanne's Calling Card. They soon start developing a strong friendship, as Finn is always there for Maron and, with her parents working overseas, she finally doesn't have to spend every night alone in her apartment anymore.

A Reveal after the halfway point of the story makes Finn a Walking Spoiler. Proceed with caution.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Finn has a crush on the baddest of them all.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Finn to Access.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Green hair and green eyes.
  • Dead Guy Junior: Maron names her daughter "Natsuki". Natsuki was the name of Finn's previous human incarnation. In a strange case, her daughter turns out to have inherited angel Finn's soul.
  • Evil Costume Switch: When Finn reveals that she's a fallen angel, she gets a black outfit, a corset, and some Femme Fatalons.
  • Fallen Angel: Not by choice.
  • Hellish Pupils: Like all angels. This can be a foreshadowing that one can't really see if an angel is fallen or not based on looks alone.
  • Invisible to Normals: Normal humans can't see or hear her.
  • Light Is Not Good: Her white wings don't indicate her affiliation with the Devil.
  • Mentor Mascot: Finn Fish serves as Jeanne's, telling her about demons etc. Too bad she's not entirely trustworthy.
  • The Mole: For the Devil.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: She's a small angel, here to guide and support Jeanne in her efforts to seal the demons.
  • Pointy Ears: They're part of her angelic design.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Finn dies shortly after getting redeemed. However, redemption also earns reincarnation.
  • Reincarnation: Finn Fish is the angel-incarnation of Natsuki, a young Miko, who was murdered by her own possessed brother for profit, almost twice. Also, she and Access Time are both reborn in the end of the manga as Maron's and Chiaki's daughter Natsuki and Yamato's and Miyako's son Shinji.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Natsuki (reincarnated Fynn) and Shinji (reincarnated Access), though Arina's notes on them reveal that the romance might not work immediately, due to only one of the reincarnated party having memories of their previous life and love. A side story included in the rerelease does indeed deconstruct this. Natsuki sees Access in her dreams and believes him to be her lover from a previous life, but she doesn't know that this is actually Shinji and thus sees his persistent advances as annoying. They manage to work it out, though.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Finn versus Fin versus Fynn. "Fin" is less like a normal name, but makes more sense with her Punny Name Fin Fish.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Ever wonder how Finn got that odd haircut, short in the back with long sidelocks? In the backstory, a demon-possessed human cut her hair in order to steal her angelic powers. It worked too well and a bunch of humans died in the explosion, resulting in Finn's banishment from heaven.
  • Tsundere: Towards Access.
  • Undercover When Alone: Finn gives monologues about the evil of Access and Sinbad while being The Mole all along.
  • Unwitting Pawn: In the anime. Although in the manga, Finn wasn't unwitting and argued that she was using Satan just as much as he was using her.
  • Walking Spoiler: Even without elaboration, simply the presence of certain tropes gives away large spoilers about her character. More than half of her character tropes are spoiler-tagged.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Maron asks Finn this after the latter reveals that she's been evil all along. Finn initially says that yes, it was all a lie, although she later admits that she did really love Maron.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has green hair.

    Access Time 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charjeanne_access.jpg
Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (JP), Blanca Rada (SP)

Access, a small black-winged angel, is to Sinbad what Finn is to Jeanne. He helps him find new possessed artworks and provides helpful information. Just like Sinbad, he's suspected to work for the Devil by Maron and Finn.


  • "Arabian Nights" Days: Sinbad and Access's wardrobe looks like this.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Visible when he opens his mouth, they give him a demonic look.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His dark wings don't indicate the fact that he's not working for the devil.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Towards Finn.
  • Fallen Angel: Averted. His wings are black because he's not a very experienced or powerful angel yet.
  • Hellish Pupils: Like all angels.
  • Important Haircut: In the final volume, Access cuts his hair in order to save Finn.
  • Invisible to Normals: Normal humans can't see or hear him.
  • Love Potion: In a side story, Access grows a magic flower that causes anyone who eats its petals to fall in love with the one who grew it. He plans to use it on Finn, but Finn prematurely eats the flower by accident and starts acting all gushingly in love with Access, who quickly realizes that he likes her better when she has free will.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: To Chiaki.
  • Pointy Ears: They're part of his angelic design.
  • Reincarnation: Access and Finn are both reborn in the end of the manga as Maron's and Chiaki's daughter Natsuki and Yamato's and Miyako's son Shinji.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Natsuki (reincarnated Fynn) and Shinji (reincarnated Access), though Arina's notes on them reveal that the romance might not work immediately, due to only one of the reincarnated party having memories of their previous life and love. A side story included in the rerelease does indeed deconstruct this. Natsuki sees Access in her dreams and believes him to be her lover from a previous life, but she doesn't know that this is actually Shinji and thus sees his persistent advances as annoying. They manage to work it out, though.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Access loves pancakes. So does his human reincarnation.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is purple.

    Noin Claude aka Hijiri Shikaidou 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charjeanne_noin.jpg
Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (JP), Miguel Ángel Garzón (SP)

Noin used to be a knight fighting for Jeanne d'Arc and started turning to the Devil on the day she died.


  • Affably Evil: He may be a demon but seems nice enough in his human identity, helps Maron and loves Jeanne. Since the series doesn't treat trying to rape Maron as crossing the Moral Event Horizon, and he's Easily Forgiven afterwards, this trope stays in place in-universe.
  • The Ageless: He hasn't aged for centuries, ever since he became a demon.
  • Attempted Rape: Noin tries to rape Maron in order to get rid of her Virgin Power.
    Noin: "I realized how I can take you from God [...] It will be a little violent, but please forgive me."
  • Badass Longcoat: A large black one is part of his demonic outfit.
  • Biseinen: Just like most of the rest of the male cast.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: His Start of Darkness began when he realized he couldn't have Jeanne because God had her. That's figuratively – she was dedicated to sealing demons, not romance – and literally – she couldn't have sex because she needed to be pure to use her powers. When Maron convinces her that purity has nothing to do with her virginity, it's already too late for Noin.
  • Death by Adaptation: Noin dies via Heroic Sacrifice in the anime adaptation, while he survives and sticks around in the original manga.
  • Demonic Possession: The anime never questions exactly how a human Noin Claude received demonic powers from the Devil. The manga reveals that he was possessed by a demon, and that possessed humans evolve into even stronger demons. It's shown later that the demon who possessed him was his own future self.
  • Easily Forgiven: Not only does he work for the Devil, he has every intention to rape Maron and would've gone through with it if Chiaki hadn't interfered. It's never brought up again as soon as Maron learns of his backstory and his undying love for Jeanne.
  • Evil Redhead: Once his true motives are revealed, the red hair of his human disguise plays this trope straight.
  • Evil Stole My Faith: Only in the anime. Seeing Jeanne being burnt at the stake by the people she fought for, and God doing nothing to help her, was Noin's Start of Darkness.
  • Faith–Heel Turn: His hate for God is played up more in the anime, while the manga mainly focuses on his feelings for Jeanne.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Maron and Noin end up in fifteenth-century Europe. Subverted with Noin who originally came from that time.
  • Hot Teacher: His Secret Identity to get close to Maron is history teacher Hijiri Shikaidou. Most highschool girls swoon over him.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Played for Drama. See the main page for the whole thing. As for his part in it, he loves Jeanne d'Arc and is jealous because she only belonged to God. He hopes for a Reincarnation Romance with Maron, who's in love with Chiaki.
  • Pet the Dog: He has a cute relationship with his pet dragon Silk.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Noin has a twisted idea that this is what he'll have with Maron, who's Jeanne's reincarnation.
  • Secret Identity: He takes on the identity of history teacher Hijiri Shikaidou to blend in and gain Maron's trust.
  • Secret Keeper: He presents himself as this to Maron when she doesn't know his true demonic form yet.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Subverted. He gets the chance to protect his former human self from becoming possessed by a demon when he's in medieval France with Maron. He changes plans halfway and possesses himself because it means his past self will live long enough to meet Jeanne's reincarnation, creating a Stable Time Loop.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's a handsome, powerful man with dark hair.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Regarding his Reincarnation Romance, as stated above.
    Maron: "I am Maron! Kusakabe Maron! It's true that Jeanne d'Arc might have loved you. It's true that I am her reincarnation. But I have a different personality, face and heart. I am a different person. As Kusakabe Maron, I can't love you."

Humans

    Miyako Todaiji 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charjeanne_miyako.jpg
Voiced by: Naoko Matsui (JP), Inés Blázquez (SP)

Miyako has been Maron's best friend since childhood and lives with her parents in the appartment across the hall. Her father is the detective charged with capturing Kaitou Jeanne, and Miyako is eager to help.


  • Always Second Best: Maron is better at her in rhythmic gymnastics, her crush Chiaki falls in love with Maron, and Jeanne always escapes her. Their friendship is strong enough for her to not hold any grudges, though.
  • Babies Ever After: In the manga, Miyako and Yamato eventually have a son, Shinji.
  • Childhood Friends: Maron and Miyako have known each other since kindergarten, have always lived in the same apartment complex and are best friends.
  • Clear Their Name:
    • In the anime, Miyako's secret motivation for catching Kaitou Jeanne is to pre-emptively protect her Childhood Friend Maron by revealing Jeanne's secret identity, since the two bear an uncanny resemblance. Unfortunately, Maron really is Kaitou Jeanne...
    • The manga subverts this trope, turns out that Miyako knew Maron and Jeanne were the same person all along, and was keeping up the act so no one else got suspicious.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Chapter 12 has her eating at a cafè with Jeanne, it's not known why nobody reacts to it and why Jeanne didn't put on some disguise but they did. The reason they do it is because she's gonna talk with Jeanne about stealing her brother's painting in the end of chapter 11.
  • Hero Antagonist: Miyako wants to help the police capture a wanted thief.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: In the second to the last episode of the anime, Miyako is manipulated into attacking Jeanne. Miyako herself snaps out of it with Noin's help.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She stops pursuing Chiaki when she realizes how much Maron loves and trusts him.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Played for Drama. Consisting of several love triangles, but Triang Relations doesn't quite cover it anymore. Both Maron and Miyako fall in love with Chiaki, who pretends to flirt with Maron but later actually falls in love with her. Yamato has an unreciprocated crush on Maron and later falls for Miyako. Noin actually loves Jeanne d'Arc but believes in a Reincarnation Romance with Maron, who's not interested at all.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Maron's best friend doesn't possess any supernatural powers.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: In the manga, Miyako always knew that Maron was Kaito Jeanne, and was intentionally failing to catch her.
  • Pair the Spares: Yamato and Miyako.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: In the manga only, Miyako kept her knowledge of Maron's secret until she's ready to tell her.
  • Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: She's Maron's supportive best friend, wants to become a detective one day, but is also a major hindrance in Jeanne's efforts to reach the possessed artwork.
  • Tsundere: Towards Maron and Yamato.

  • Arranged Marriage: She was promised to Chiaki.
  • Babies Ever After: Her and Kagura's baby twins are the reincarnated Toki and Celcia.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's jealous towards Maron in both talent and attention from Chiaki. She has green eyes as a visual metaphor.

  • Tsundere: On the deredere side with Chiaki, more heavily on the tsuntsun side with Kagura.

Zen is another human possessed by a demon, but his circumstances particularly touch Maron. His heart disease prevents him from leaving the hospital and it's the demon who keeps him alive.


  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: The manga reveals that his soul was pure enough to become an angel after his death.
  • Demonic Possession: The demon who possesses him gives him enough strength to survive despite his heart condition. He's also the reason Zen can see Finn. This proves to Sinbad how inhuman he had already become, justifying sealing the demon.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Zen dies in Maron's arms.
  • Heart Trauma: Played straight in the anime. A demon has possessed Zen's actual failing heart. Downplayed in the manga, where the demon hides in a painting as usual, but his possession is still the only reason Zen's still alive despite his disease.
  • Ill Boy: His heart is failing and he's prone to stressfull episodes that can cost him his life.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rude to Maron and the nurses because of his frustration with being tied to a hospital bed.
  • The Lost Lenore: His death takes a huge toll on Maron who couldn't protect someone she promised to help.
  • Parental Abandonment: Zen has spent many years in a hospital because of his heart condition, and his parents have never visited him. With Maron's help he finds out that his mother works day and night to earn enough money for Zen's operation.
