    Kazuki Shikimori 

Kazuki Shikimori

Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi (Japanese), Blake Shepard (English)

  • Accidental Pervert: In one hilarious incident, he accidentally walks into a room where Yuna is changing. While he quickly steps out, he realizes shortly afterwards that she was changing in his room.
  • Apologizes a Lot: Kuriko tells Kazuki he does this too much in one episode, and his response is to apologize.
  • Back from the Dead: The point of the second half.
  • Balanced Harem: For the most part. None of them have a significant lead over the other girls.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Lampshaded.
    Kazuki: Stop, or I will scream!
    Kuriko: That's a girl's line.
  • Heroic Lineage: At the beginning of his second year it is revealed that he is descended from not only the most powerful of eastern mages, but the most powerful of western mages.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Kazuki sacrifices his last spell and subsequently his life to save Yuuna's.
  • Intangibility: As a ghost. Episode 15 subverts this however.
  • Lover Tug-of-War: Poor Kazuki.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Happens at least once to him courtesy of Kuriko.
  • Nice Guy: He even uses his magic to make it snow on a hot summer day just to make a girl he literally just met to stop crying so her family wont move away.
  • Oblivious to Love: In episode 6, when his dad calls him asking if he has has a girlfriend, he says "of course I don't". Much to the shock of Yuna, Kuriko, and Rin. I guess they just aren't trying hard enough.
  • Our Hero Is Dead /The Hero Dies: The Wham Episode.
  • Polyamory: Implied at the end of the series after Kazuki somehow manages to split himself up into multiple copies. While none of the girls seemed to mind it, Yuna seems to only want one of him, and she wants him to herself.
  • Reduced to Dust: When he uses his last spell.
  • Super Weight: Kazuki is a Type 4, his magic is so powerful it can affect the entire city he lives in and alter normal physics.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: In episode 15 to Rin. She wasn't very happy about it.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Kazuki's Superpowerful Genetics makes him the mage equivalent to a rocket launcher. That said, he's only able to use eight spells before he dies.
  • Unwanted Harem
  • Wham Episode: Episode 12. Kazuki uses his last spell and turns to ash, although he "survives" as a ghost.

    Kuriko Kazetsubaki 

Kuriko Kazetsubaki

Voiced by: Yuki Matsuoka (Japanese), Tiffany Grant (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/217099.jpg


  • All for Nothing: Episode 6. All that fuss she went through to impress Kazuki's parents? Yeah... turns out they wont be coming.
  • Alliterative Name: Kuriko Kazetsubaki
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Averted in episode 19 when you see nipples on Kuriko and Yamase.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The blonde.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: This Unlucky type is debatable, as he splits himself into multiple persons after becoming human, and Kuriko mentions keeping 5 or 6 of them to herself while giving Yamase one, to which she's perfectly okay with.
  • Clothing Damage: In one episode, a summoned monster manages to claw through Kuriko's blouse and bra without scratching her skin.
  • Entitled to Have You: More of a "Who they are" instance. Initially, she only wants Kazuki's genes, so she seems quite content with using her body, charm, or her family's resources to seduce Kazuki.
  • Gainaxing: Mandatory for a Ms. Fanservice to bounce from time to time.
  • Gold Digger: At the beginning of the story, Kuriko's only interest in Kazuki is to obtain his genes for the wealthy and influential Kazetsubaki family and the stature that goes with being the mother of a powerful sorcerer.
  • Magical Girlfriend: Just like basically all the main girls.
  • Mrs. Robinson: Downplayed. She's only about 1 or 2 years older than Kazuki.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Noblewoman's Laugh
  • Of Corsets Sexy
  • Ojou: A western type.
  • Prehensile Hair: Yuna and Kuriko engage in a spot of ahoge wrestling. Yuna's also functions as a Kazuki radar.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has waist-length hair.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Inverted. The ghost "child" Elizabeth takes Kuriko as a replacement mother.
  • The Rival: Rin, Kuriko, and Yuuna, though they outgrow it to an extent.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She eventually turns into this.
  • Stalker with a Test Tube: Initially, big time.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Often she will appear out of nowhere into Kazuki's arms or lap right in front of Yuna.
  • Student Council President: She's a member of the student government.
  • The Tease: She's actually into Kazuki, but she enjoys being a shameless flirt with him too. Usually it's to tease Yuna.
  • The Vamp: At first, she tries to seduce Kazuki simply for his genes. She grows out of it later though.
  • You Remind Me of X: When Elizabeth sees Kuriko, who resembles Elizabeth's mother, lift up a helmet, it reminded her of a knight that guarded her and Elizabeth adopts Kuriko as her new mother.

    Chihaya Yamase 

Chihaya Yamase

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/44935.jpg


  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Averted in episode 19 when you see nipples on Kuriko and Yamase.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Depending on your POV, Yuna and Yamase are both Victorious since Kazuki being split up into clones means they could both have one to themselves. Yuna doesn't like the idea, but Yamase seems happy to have one of him.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Put on a Bus: She has a tendency to appear, then disappear for a while throughout the series.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Subverted, Yamase is introduced in one episode, then seems to be promptly forgotten. She shows up again in later episodes, and she gets much more screen time and character development.

  • The Collector: Shino seems to be a bit too obsessed at trying to capture Kazuki as a ghost.
  • Old School Building: Shino lures Kazuki here when she first attempts to capture him. Yuna destroys it in a fit of jealousy.
  • Ship Tease: It is hinted that she has feelings for Kazuki since her brother had asked her why she kept hesitating to put Kazuki into her collection, even though she could have done so at any time.

  • Last Episode, New Character: Maiho shows up right before the anime series ends, declaring to be Kazuki's bride. Yuna is not pleased about that.
