Go To


Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya

  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: At least in comparison to the rest of the cast.
  • Broken Tears: After being used by Inari to destroy most of the Mirror Capital.

  • Sailor Fuku: Sports one as part of her uniform from The Shrine, though in the present day she wears a black cardigan over it.

Lady Koto

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa


  • Bare Your Midriff: After being exiling herself from the Mirror Capital, she sports a black dress that exposes her stomach.
  • Combat Hand Fan: Sports one in her fight with Inari

  • Little Bit Beastly: Looks almost entirely human, but retains her rabbit ears.
  • Missing Mom: Exiles herself from the Mirror Capital after receiving a prophetic vision that she will cause the destruction of the city. This vision actually concerned her future daughter, who shares the same name.

  • Rapunzel Hair: Much like her daughter, Koto.
  • Unusual Ears: The aforementioned rabbit ears.

Inari / Myoue the First

Voiced by: Akira Ishida
As Myoue 


  • All of the Other Reindeer: As Myoue, he was an outcast due to his reality-warping abilities. As Inari, he is gossiped about because many members of Shrine disapprove of Inari bringing in an outsider, Koto, as his protege. He's also hiding his identity.
  • Being God Is Hard: Inari lacks his brother's dedication to their godly duties and while he never explicitly says it's hard, he does bemoan that it eventually began to feel pointless, particularly once humans appeared.
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: Inari is the first Myoue. It's hardly a secret when the siblings have already have suspicions that Koto is their younger sister and Inari shares many of Myoue's facial features and his unmistakable voice actor.
  • Commissar Cap: Regarded as being one of the most skilled members of The Shrine - with a hat to prove it!
  • Cool Sword: His katana, which is red and gold with embellished knuckle-guards around the hilt. Later doubles as a Cool Key after using it to possess Koto and destroy the Mirror Capital.
  • Death Seeker: His desire to pass on his responsibilities to his children and finally disappear is the driving force of the series.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father had done the same to him.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Flat out tells Koto that while he eventually came around to truly loving his family, he was never able to love himself. Indeed, his belief that his own existence is worthless is so strong that the entire story revolves around his complex plan to transfer his powers of creation to his children and be erased by God. It takes a stern talking to and a few slaps from his wife and daughter to finally come around.
  • It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time: Hoo-boy
    • Adopting Yakushimaru who was a newly orphaned child he found and resurrected.
    • Relocating his entire family to Mirror Capital which he threw the universe out of balance creating Mirror Capital.
    • Leaving his children, and bestowing his beads to his human son, Yakushimaru, without proper explanation
    • Giving Koto the Aratama the power of destruction after filling her head with stories about Mirror Kyoto but not explaining that she can't just force her way in
  • Malevolent Masked Man: High ranking members of Shrine sport a mask while on missions; however, Inari has a tendency to wear his almost at all times, except in the privacy of his own home with Koto.
  • Man in White: As part of his uniform for The Shrine.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Myoue is loosely based on a real Japanese Buddhist monk with the same name who lived in seclusion on the mountain of Kozanji, outside the capital of Kyoto. His temple is also used as reference for the family's home.
  • Parental Abandonment: When Lady Koto has to leave Mirror Capital, he joins her - leaving behind his three children.
  • Physical God: Quite literally, in that he is one of God's two sons, tasked with balancing the universe. He loses this power by the end of the series, though.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Inari makes such a huge mess by never explaining to Koto how the Aratama shouldn't be used that he decides to go for broke by resetting the entire universe. He planned on speeding up the destruction of Mirror Capital by manipulating Koto in hopes that Myoue will use the beads and fix everything.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Like Koto, he has red eyes, which are symbolic for something not quite human.
  • So Proud of You: To his inventor son, Kurama.
    • Koto
  • Restart the World: He trusts Myoue will do this.
  • The Power of Creation: As Myoue, he could bring his paintings to life. Inari shows no indication he can do this.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Myoue
    • Lady Koto
    You’re like a child. You don’t know how to control yourself. Everything you do is overly extravagant. You’re free, selfish, uninhibited. Self-centered. A cold-hearted monster. Yet, you know how to demand attention. A proud man, who can’t bear to be alone.
    • Koto
  • There's No Place Like Home: He wants to return to Mirror Capital to see his abandoned children again.
  • Tights Under Shorts: His uniform includes these.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: He seems satisfied with the idea of disappearing for good after having Yakushimaru and Koto take over his duties as a god. Koto begs to differ.

Myoue / Yakushimaru

Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura


  • Bungled Suicide: After a fire kills his biological parents, Yakushimaru stabs himself. Myoue finds him and brings him back to his home to revive him before he dies.
  • Death Seeker: Agrees to help Koto find her mother in the hopes that, once his parents return to the Mirror Capital, he can finally die.
  • Dirty Old Monk: Downplayed.
  • Hereditary Hairstyle: Yakushimaru sports the same hairstyle as his adoptive father did.
  • Older Than They Look: Definitely doesn't appear to be over 100 years old.
  • Sole Survivor: Not for lack of trying. His parents were killed in a fire, and although he attempted suicide, he survived.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Starts to look an awful lot like his adoptive father when he grows up. One theory for this is that, when Myoue passed his prayer beads down to Yakushimaru, there was also a transfer of DNA, making the two related by blood and therefore influencing Yakushimaru's looks.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Was made immortal against his will, and hopes when his parents return they'll finally let him die.

  • Hulking Out: Yase's true form - a colossal ogre - comes out when she's under great emotional duress.
  • Magic Dress: Her dress changes size with her, whether she's taken on her true form or not.
  • Nice Hat: A pink hat with a wide brim and large fuschia ribbon.
  • Oni: What she is, although you would be forgiven for not guessing it based on her usual appearance.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Sports a few large ones as an adult.
  • Older Than They Look: She doesn't look to be over 100 years old.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Yase's dress - big, pink, with several different frilled layers.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Yase's associated color is pink - her dress and hat indicate this.
  • Pointy Ears: One of many things that indicate Yase isn't quite as human as her brothers.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her eyes glow red when she starts to transform.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly-Girl to Koto's Tomboy.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: The aforementioned Hulking Out aside, she seems to be capable of changing into her ogre form at will.
  • Youkai: Both Yase and her minions are this.


Voiced by: Shigeru Nakahara


  • Bald of Evil: Subverted. Kurama seems to be the Big Bad at first - intending to sacrifice Koto in order to bring his mother back - but ends up undergoing a Heel–Face Turn after Inari comes back.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Except when he's mad.
  • Hat of Authority: Wears a tall orange hat, indicating his position as leader of Kurama Temple.
