The Kuki Corporation is the resident Mega-Corp that funds essentially everything in the series. While initially little more then a background element, newer versions of the game have fleshed out the organization considerably, to the point where an entire page is needed for all of the characters associated with it.

     The Kuki Family 

Ageha Kuki

Voiced by: Naoko Matsui (Japanese)

Ageha is a character returning from They Are My Noble Masters and has had something of a relevance increase both in the original Majikoi and the sequel. She is one of the Big Four and something of a rival to Momoyo, though clearly inferior in ability. She is the oldest of the Kuki siblings.

  • Aloof Big Brother: Towards Hideo, who freaks out at the sheer mention of her name. Not so much with Monshiro.
  • Berserk Button: Generally disappointing her is a good way to make her angry. Nobody falls victim to this more than her servant Kojuurou.
  • Breakout Character: To the point fans really wanted her to have her own route. Kawakami A in the series' website actually hinted a possibility.
  • Cool Big Sis: Significantly nicer to Monshiro than she is to Hideo, though she does occasionally show her some kindness.
  • Deus Exit Machina: Ageha is literally launched into orbit to keep her from getting in the way of the true route of S. Figuring she has nothing better to do, she just goes to sleep. Then she gets bored and basically punches her way back to the surface.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Momoyo. Despite all the battles they fought against each other, the two of them clearly have no bad feelings towards one another and Ageha actually likes looking out for Momoyo as her senpai.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: When Ageha grabs Momoyo's hand and basically says they're going to be together for awhile, Momoyo reads it as a confession and despite her claims of not being a lesbian seems pretty happy about the idea, though Ageha soon continues to say that they're going to be training together.
  • Large Ham
  • Lightning Bruiser: She's almost as strong a fighter as Momoyo, after all.
  • Mistaken for Gay: When Ageha grasps Momoyo’s hand, intending for her to realize that she’ll be joining Ageha for training, Momoyo takes it as a confession. She’s fine with that.
  • Nice Girl: While she can be very strict (especially to her servant Kojuuro) she's generally a very friendly and kind hearted young lady. She's clearly been a good influence on Monshiro.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Much longer compared to her appearance in They Are My Noble Masters.
  • The Rival: She used to be Momoyo's, but thanks to not having as much time to devote to training she's fallen behind. Nor does she have time to spar as often. However, Momoyo is still very happy at the chance to train or fight with her again.
  • Violation of Common Sense: Tired of floating around in space, Ageha decides to punch a hole through the wall and fall back to Earth.
  • What Were You Thinking?: When Momoyo gets blown away by Haou, she doesn’t consider it a defeat because she wasn’t injured and returned in time to continue fighting. However, Ageha points out that the situation would never have gotten so out of hand if Momoyo hadn’t been stupid enough to get blown away in the first place. Further, she continues acting like she did nothing wrong. What really drives it in for her, though, is that she won’t get to continue the fight tomorrow since Haou peacefully surrendered and is not allowed to accept duels for the foreseeable future to limit damage to Kawakami Academy.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Taken out by a surprise attack at the beginning of the Koyuki route. She wouldn't have beaten her opponent anyway, most likely, but she didn't even get a chance to fight back.
  • "X" Marks the Hero

Hideo Kuki

See the Class 2-S section for more.

Monshiro Kuki

Voiced by: Mai Kadowaki

Youngest child of the wealthy and influential Kuki Family, and one of the new heroines in S. Is remarkably mature and detail-oriented in spite of being the youngest sibling, after Hideo and Ageha.

  • The Ace: She's intelligent, athletic, has good looks or the promise of good looks in the future, wealth and good domestic skills. She's also rather friendly.
  • A Child Shall Lead Them: Lacking anyone higher up or more independent in the command chain than Monshiro, she’s put in charge during the Koyuki route. She also seems to be the primary commander for Hideo's army in A-2. While a surprisingly competent general, she's no Touma, which may be why the Kuki army only manages to go 6-4.
  • Cool Big Sis: Weirdly, Monshiro ends up playing the big sister for Kousonshou, who is even smaller than she is.
  • Gratuitous English: Mon has a habit of speaking randomly in English sometimes. It's written irregularly as well.
  • The Heart: Certainly acts as this to her family as she's very good at keeping spirits high, especially with her older siblings. Even more so in Koyuki's route where she's literally the only one keeping the Kuki Corporation together.
  • It Runs in the Family: Like everyone else in her family, she's a smart business woman (despite her age), is a Large Ham, is highly intelligent and, of course, has grey hair.
  • Large Ham: The Kuki family are apparently expected to be loud and hammy, Tsubone aside. It's hinted that it doesn't really come naturally for Monshiro, but she goes out of her way to act just like Ageha and Hideo.
  • Magnetic Girlfriend: It’s debatable whether Yamato becomes more popular after marrying Monshiro, but there’s quite a bit of emphasis on his fans. Tsubame's affection earns him jealousy from both other students and Monshiro while Benkei gets depressed while playing at a festival and realizing he's Kuki Yamato now, not Naoe Yamato. She leaves immediately.
  • Minor Major Character: Despite having Yamato as her personal attendant in Stacy’s route, she doesn’t even appear onscreen through the entire route and only has lines twice. Both over the phone.
  • Morality Pet: There's no denying that she brings out the best in her family members.
  • Nice Girl: She's much friendlier than her arrogant but well meaning older brother and gets along well with Yamato and his friends whether you pursue her or not.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Just like her big sister.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Much to the despair of lolicons and the joy of her fans who weren't but liked her for her personality, A-2 reveals she grows into splendid woman, like her older sister.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Token little girl of the S primary characters.
  • Totally 18: The story assures us at great length that she's definitely 18 despite being a first year student who skipped several grades. Please ignore that she grew up in her after story. She's treated inconsistently on this one: Hideo treats her like his kid sister and her attitude is clearly that of a little girl trying to act older than she is, but nobody raises an eyebrow at her getting married in her afterstory.
  • Unequal Pairing: Her family invokes the idea. Kuki family members are supposed to hire an opposite sex servant and hook up with them normally. Hideo and Ageha are simply uninterested in the idea, unlike Monshiro, as shown in her route. However, he ends up marrying into the family and his job transfers over to minor character Tinkao, who usually acts as Yamato's own subordinate. He gets his own personal servant and everything, putting him on the same status as the three siblings.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: She's really desperate for her mother, Tsubone's, approval. It's difficult since she's not related to Tsubone. Mon is the child of an affair between Tsubone's husband, Mikado, and another woman.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Is much more mature, thoughtful and considerate of other's feelings than her brash and sometimes arrogant brother, Hideo.
  • "X" Marks the Hero: It's apparently a custom in her family. She did it to herself in order to gain acceptance with Tsubone, though it probably wasn't necessary and didn't work anyway.

Tsubone Kuki

Voiced by: Ai Orikasa

Matriarch of the Kuki family. An extremely strict and prideful woman, she can be very hard to get along with and is feared by basically everyone who meets her. While she does care for her children, she shows her loves by making them work constantly to become proper heirs to their prestigious family name.

Mikado Kuki

Voiced by: Satoshi Tsuruoka

Head of the Kuki family and CEO of the Kuki Corporation, though he's almost always away. He's a lecherous slacker who doesn't take anything very seriously.

  • The Ace: He muses offhandedly that he was born with the ability to do pretty much anything he set his mind to.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: With Tsubone.
  • Biseinen: He's pretty good looking.
  • Born Lucky: After hearing of his exploits Yamato reaches the conclusion that he has Cap's level of luck.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He must be pretty smart to run the Kuki Corporation, but he sure doesn't show it.
  • The Chess Master: He's pulling the strings behind the scenes during the internal struggle with the Bushido Plan.
  • The Casanova: Much to the ire of his wife.
  • Disappeared Dad: Isn't around much for his kids, and has only recently been introduced in the games.
  • Handsome Lech
  • Honest Corporate Executive: He's not the greatest guy, but he doesn't use any underhanded means to benefit his company.
  • It Amused Me: Mikado makes up rules on the fly to suit his sense of humor. He also gave Marple the okay to go ahead with the Bushido plan when his word alone would have stopped her and let Hume and Claudio go with her because he felt it would be funny and bet it wouldn't work.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not a very good father and is a jerk in general, but he's not a bad guy.
  • Meaningful Name: His name, Mikado, means emperor. The Kuki corporation is so politically important that he basically is the head of state for a small but powerful country.
  • Minor Major Character: He's the head of the Kuki corporation and has status on par with the head of a powerful nation, but goes unmentioned in the first installment and in the second is rather conspicuously absent until the end of the true route, which focuses entirely on what the Kuki servants and main family are doing. Even then, he has no sprite. The only times he takes anything like the role of even a side character are during Monshiro's epilogue or the Kuki servant routes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red oni to his wife's blue.
  • The Slacker: Despite being the head of the most powerful organization in the world, he seems content to chase skirts around the world.
  • "X" Marks the Hero


Azumi Oshitari

See the Class 2-S section for more.

Hume Hellsing

Voiced by: Takaya Kuroda

A battle-scarred, top-ranked servant and bodyguard of the Kuki Corporation, he's the personal butler to his employers Tsubone and Mikado Kuki, heads of the aforementioned corporation. During S, he acts as Monshiro's personal bodyguard while she attends Kawakami Academy. At other times, he acts as the Kuki Corporation's top enforcer, being sent after problematic individuals and sent to oversee important Kuki events and operations. He is one of the most powerful fighters in the setting, and that's saying a lot.

  • Achilles' Heel: His old age makes it so that he gets tired more easily. This hardly matters as he can finish most fights instantly and even Momoyo needed a considerable amount of assistance to hold him off for that long.
  • Badass Baritone: His voice is befitting of his overwhelmingly intimidating appearance.
  • Badass Beard: Short and well trimmed, but enhances his edgy/strong facial character design.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Who needs to breathe?
  • Battle Butler: Works as one for Kuki Monshiro, but he's actually the personal servant of Mikado and Tsubone Kuki, the founders of the world-spanning Kuki Corporation. He is ranked 0 among the corporation's entire Servant Unit. This is because he is magnitudes more powerful than the Rank 1 servant, Oshitari Azumi, Kuki Hideo's personal servant.
  • Death Glare: Seems to permanently be sporting one, even when he's smirking arrogantly.
  • Dented Iron: His sole weakness is caused by his age, though it hardly stops him from being the strongest of the strong.
  • Dirty Old Man: While he's pretty damn subtle about it, he and Tesshin both love ogling women.
  • The Dreaded: Pretty much everyone is guaranteed to freak out as soon as he hits the scene.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Hume sides with Marple, but unlike everyone else his reasons for doing so are unclear and nobody quite understands his decision. Just obeying the orders of Mikado, his boss.
  • Famous Ancestor: Van Hellsing.
  • Flat "What": When Marple is brought to Mikado by Hume and Claudio, he shrugs and says they can try out her plan if they like. All three give a simultaneous “What.”
  • Hey, You!: Frequently refers to people as mere infants in place of their names, up to at one point referring to three different people as infants in one sentence with absolutely no difference between the way he said them. To be fair, though, that's his idea of a joke.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Bordering on Physical God.
  • New Transfer Student: What, doesn't he look like a first year to you?
  • Phenotype Stereotype: As a foreigner (where he is from specifically is never mentioned), he has brilliant blonde hair.
  • Sadist Teacher: He always beats the crap out of Stacy for slacking off or being disrespectful, but he actually does believe in her and maintains a personal interest in her development as a servant.
  • Super Senses: Kosugi waits until Mon’s group is in the car and driving away before sneering at them. Hume hears her anyway.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: He has them. Fittingly, his origin is mysterious, and his abilities are ridiculously superhuman even among the inhabitants of this universe. He even gives Momoyo pause.
  • "X" Marks the Hero: Appears to have one. Whether it is a mark of loyalty to the Kuki family, or a scar he sustained during his long life as a warrior is not known. It becomes more pronounced when he actually gives a Death Glare.

Miss Marple

Voiced by: Hisako Kyoda

An elderly woman in charge of the Bushido Plan, which resulted in the cloning of several legendary heroes. She disapproves of younger people, believing they lack ability.

  • Big Bad: Unlike in the original, the story doesn't really hide who the bad guy is. It's really a matter of what she wants.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Failed a Spot Check: She didn't even notice M hijacking the Kuki equipment 20~ years ago to make a clone of Minamoto Yoshinaka. Nor did she find out until Aki was already a third year at Kawakami Academy.
  • Flat "What": When Marple is brought to Mikado by Hume and Claudio, he shrugs and says they can try out her plan if they like. All three give a simultaneous “What.”
  • Fountain of Youth: Can become younger and much more powerful through a special technique.
  • Graceful Loser
  • I Was Quite the Looker: She was known as Miss London once and claims responsibility for recruiting Hume. Using the same Mephistopheles technique as Frank she can become young again temporarily and we see that she wasn't kidding.
  • Love-Obstructing Parents
    • Seiso's route hints that she might get in the way of the relationship, but all in all Yamato is an amazing influence on her, so nothing comes of it.
    • Apparently this angle has been played out by the time Yoshitsune's route rolls around because Marple doesn't care at all so long as they're serious about it. If anything, she's supportive of Yoshitsune going out with anyone.
  • Misapplied Phlebotinum: Stockpiling energy and then releasing it all at once to rejuvenate your form is apparently the domain of snowball fights, not self defense or attempts to fulfill your plans to take over Japan and put clones in charge.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She's ranked #2 behind Hume and Azumi and rank is at least related to fighting ability. Subverted: She suddenly declares that she's more than capable of defending herself, but is actually so weak that even Kokoro can beat her in seconds. Her younger form presumably has the power to back up her rank, however, though she only uses it for a snowball fight.
  • Not So Above It All: Marple is a crotchety old woman, but she not only participates in a goofy snowball fight between the Kuki servants and masters, but actually uses her regeneration technique so she can compete.

Claudio Nero

Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa

An elderly member the Kuki Corporation Servant Unit, ranked third behind Miss Marple, Azumi and Hume. In S, he occasionally accompanies Monshiro as her bodyguard when Hume is elsewhere. He is considered a perfect gentleman.

  • Battle Butler: He's ranked 3rd in terms of power among the Kuki Corporation's entire Servant Unit.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Claudio never gets upset, so when he’s angered on Lee’s behalf even Momoyo is taken aback. He immediately heads out, tracks down the Centipede and begins shredding the surroundings with his Razor Floss. The Centipede is left a bloody mess.
  • Chubby Chaser: Has a thing for more 'wholesome' women. To illustrate, he shamelessly flirts with Gakuto's mom, Reiko, who is ecstatic at the attention.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: The sole aversion regarding detecting enemies. When an assassin that even Hume, Momoyo or Lu cannot detect the presence of enters the academy, everyone is very upset about how they’ll counter him. Claudio has to point out that things like cameras exist. Everyone's response basically amounts to "Oh, right. Technology is a thing."
  • Death Glare: When his eyes do harden, they are hidden behind his Scary Shiny Glasses.
  • Flat "What": When Marple is brought to Mikado by Hume and Claudio, he shrugs and says they can try out her plan if they like. All three give a simultaneous “What.”
  • Graceful Loser: Claudio takes his defeat at playing dead with utmost dignity, once his protégé Lee shows herself to be superior.
  • Razor Floss: His signature weapon, which he uses to entrap his opponents.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Pulls this out whenever a fight is about to go down.

Zozuma Belfegor

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama

Zozuma is the rank 4 attendant, a big black man who spends much of his time in Africa. He's usually quite serious, but apparently has really strange hobbies and a terrible sense of humor.

Che Dominguez

Dominguez is the rank 11 servant and a former bodyguard from Mexico. Though not a martial artist, he's very strong and resilient. While mentioned in passing occasionally, his first real appearance is in A-3 where he holds the position that will succeed Azumi as the top Kuki servant at the end of the year. Though he is unambitious and does not feel himself qualified for the position, he is also not willing to allow anyone to take the current position without a fight.

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: He can extend the range of his attacks by manipulating the joints of his arms, making him a tough opponent to deal with.
  • Cool Shades: Wears his sunglasses all the time. Never seen without them.
  • Guttural Growler: Very low, deep voice on the occasions where he speaks.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He considers himself unqualified for the top position among the Kuki attendants and is also far too calm to rile up through taunts. Further, his assessment of his abilities is quite accurate, leaving him with no arrogance to exploit.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Thanks to being trapped in the desert, Dominguez has to actually hold conversations. Sheila is a little weirded out.
  • The Quiet One: He's known to not speak more than necessary and even when he gives a fairly lengthy line it's full of pauses as though he's not used to speaking this much.
  • Super Toughness: When fighting him, Stacy uses modified rifles to fire bullets slow enough to be nonlethal. They basically hit his chest and bounce off without doing anything at all.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He doesn't fight, he does violence to you. After briefly seeming to be on the ropes against Kiriyama Koi he simply headbutts him flat.

Stacy Connor

Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame

Stacy is the rank 15 attendant, a blond maid and former mercenary hailing from the streets of Miami. She was forcibly recruited into the Kuki corporation after she showed up to make fun of Azumi for becoming a maid only to be beaten by Hume. She's so American that she almost bleeds red, white and blue.

  • Ascended Extra: Stacy and Lee went from minor characters referred to as Maid 1 and Maid 2note  defeated by Azumi’s incompetence rather than direct attacks to being high ranking Kuki servants around the competency level of characters like Chris or Miyako.
  • Afraid of Blood: Stacy is not exactly afraid of blood except in the sense that it gives her flashbacks which make her feel terrible.
  • Battle Butler: Both of them.
  • The Berserker: Stacy's strongest and perhaps only real technique is called Ultra Rock. It makes her much stronger and faster, but she also becomes extremely aggressive and feral. She can still tell friend from foe, but tends to babble violently and incoherently and anyone considered a foe could be beaten to death if her friends don't stop her. Her memories during this time are pretty vague, so she doesn't really get why it makes her friends uncomfortable. According to Azumi, it's a byproduct of taking someone that was basically just a delinquent and tossing them onto battlefields as a mercenary. Azumi herself lacks such a technique because she was raised to be a professional soldier.
  • Boobs of Steel: She's one hell of a strong fighter and is one of three girls (the other two being Benkei and Tatsuko) who's a mere centimeter behind Momoyo in the bust department.
  • Catchphrase: "Rock" and "Fuck".
  • Characterization Marches On: Stacy had her name, nationality and rough backstory as early as the first Majikoi, but she was obedient, respectful and not nearly as AMERICAN as she eventually became. She even spoke politely rather than constantly peppering her speech with FUCK and ROCK.
  • Christmas Cake: Though only in their early 20s, both Stacy and Lee get a bit jealous when Yamato decides to go for Azumi over them, so he drily notes they must have been single for quite some time now. By the end of Azumi's route they're almost exactly the same age Azumi was at the start and still single.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Stacy is a former mercenary, meaning that what she’s lacking in technique she makes up in sheer determination to win. Grappled by a stronger opponent, she simply bites them and they release her out of surprise, freeing her up to combo them into submission while they're still shocked at her 'barbarism.'
  • Curb-Stomp Battle
    • When fighting Dominguez for spot eleven, at first he has her on the ropes before she uses her Ultra Rock and starts pinballing him around. It starts heading into No-Holds-Barred Beatdown territory after awhile though and she has to be stopped from killing him in her fury.
    • When the final match between Stacy and Sheila finally comes up Sheila has prepared for fighting Ultra Rock but not a tactically thinking opponent, leaving her to get blown around the arena. Even after she successfully poisons and blinds Stacy, she just relies on Yamato's direction to continue beating the crap out of Sheila.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Nobody who knows what Ultra Rock does likes Stacy using it except Stacy herself. She doesn't seem to realize that she's quite capable of beating someone to death when she uses it and possesses only a vague memory of what she was doing while in that state. It also has another severe flaw: She can't fight cautiously, which makes it an awful technique to use against Sheila.
  • Drowning Their Sorrows: In A-3's Sheila ending she drags her feet too long on admitting she likes Yamato and gets NTRed by Sheila. She goes out drinking with Lee, who is upset just like Stacy but recognizes it was probably Stacy's fault for being too timid.
  • Eagleland: Stacy is so American that she dual wields assault rifles and wears American flag bikinis.
  • Eye Color Change: Her eyes turn red in Ultra Rock mode and may even glow.
  • Feel No Pain: While using Ultra Rock, she blocks out her sense of pain. At one point she dislocates her wrist, shrugs and then just continues with kicking before mounting her opponent and pummeling them with her fists anyway.
  • Flash Step: When using Ultra Rock she becomes so much faster that Dominguez goes from dominating the fight to being unable to even keep her in sight.
  • Foil: Stacy and Lee are basically complete opposites. Stacy is loud, hot blooded and fairly strict while Lee is quiet, cool and likes to spoil Yamato.
  • Funny Background Event: While Lee and Yamato discuss Lee’s transfer into 3-F at work, Stacy is loudly getting thrashed in the background by Hume.
  • The Gadfly: Stacy tells Yoshitsune to go into Benkei's room, knowing that she and Yamato are probably *ahem* busy and then moves to follow her, eager to see Benkei's reaction. She also tricks Lee into wearing a school swimsuit to the beach, though she at least brought a real one for Lee to wear after that.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When using Ultra Rock, Stacy's eyes begin glowing red.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Stacy and Lee are best friends, partners and largely inseparable.
  • Hot-Blooded: Stacy.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She makes fun of Lee for being a virgin and Azumi for being Christmas Cake, but she herself is surprisingly innocent and hasn't even had a first kiss yet. When she outs herself accidentally, Lee asks her why she bothers and is told it's because Stacy thinks it's uncool.
  • Lady Swearsalot: Considering one of her catchphrases is simply "Fuck", this is to be expected.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After Yoshitsune asks Stacy if she'd be intruding to walk in on Yamato and Benkei right now she assures her no way, definitely not and then moves to follow her to see Benkei freaking out when she and Yamato are surely being interrupted during a private moment. However, Hume descends and punishment ensues for slacking.
  • Malicious Slander: People don't bring it up to Yamato directly because he's her subordinate, but there are a lot of rumors about her. She admits that she was a delinquent in Miami and might have put a few people in the hospital, but rumors also circulate about prostitution and drug use, which make her somewhat unhappy. The first time he begins hearing these kinds of rumors from Sheila, Stacy goes out drinking with him to clear up the situation, though he had already pretty much figured what she would or would not do.
  • Mood-Swinger: She switches from good cheer to anger to severe depression at the drop of a dime. Probably because she's so AMERICAN and everyone knows how emotional and unreserved Americans are.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Stacy occasionally has a huge sharky grin.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's blonde, almost as busty as Momoyo and her swimsuit...yeah.
  • Ninja Maid: Stacy worked with Azumi and the Colonel as mercenaries.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: After beating Dominguez, she mounts him and begins pummeling him with all her strength. If Lee hadn't stopped her she probably would have killed him. Or he might have killed her with a counter given how careless she was being.
  • Now That's Using Your Teeth!: Wrapped up by Yamato’s wire, Stacy simply bites him. In her next match she also bites her opponent when they grapple her, which gets her called barbaric.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Ultra Rock Stacy earns Hume’s approval and horrifies everyone else. She's coarse and extremely violent.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: Loud, flashy, vulgar, busty blue eyed blonde Stacy takes it right into parody territory given the American flag bikini and dual assault rifles.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: She shares the A-3 fandisc with Lee, which is apparently the meido disc. Their routes are separate, however.
  • Red Baron: She used to be known as Bloodstained Stacy, which she finds embarrassing nowadays.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: If Stacy has red eyes and considers you her opponent, she'll probably kill you.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Stacy and Lee respectively.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: She tends to have nasty flashbacks that leave her extremely depressed and barely communicative. We stop seeing them after Yamato interrupts a bad one with a kiss and they're acknowledged as being less common after that. Her mental trauma is also the source of her Ultra Rock technique, which she only acquired because she threw herself onto the battlefield when she was really nothing more than a small time delinquent from Miami.
  • Speed Blitz: The beginning of Stacy’s fight with Sheila has her blitzing the latter before she can react. Of course, Sheila had prepared for this by coating herself with poison, so Stacy makes it a ranged fight until she gets poisoned anyway and then just overwhelms Sheila with sheer force.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Ultra Rock makes Stacy extremely bloodthirsty and passionate, though she likes the technique and considers it as though her hero has come to rescue her. In this state, she's much stronger and faster because all her body's limiters are off and she isn't holding back. However, it's significantly more situational of a technique than Stacy realizes because she can't fight intelligently, hits people so hard she injures herself and leaves herself wide open to potential counters.
  • Super Senses: Her senses all improve while under Ultra Rock.
  • Talkative Loon: Ultra Rock
    Stacy: Yamatoyamatoyamatoyamatoyamatoyamatoyamato! Gonna take me out? I’m like Sigourney Weaver!
  • The Tease: Stacy finds it amusing to do things like invite Yamato into the shower with her… or rather, she would find it more amusing if he didn’t just say ‘Yes’ immediately.
  • Tsundere: Early on, Stacy is rather reluctant to admit she likes Yamato, though not consistently. She tells Sheila pretty bluntly that she doesn't like Sheila sneaking into Yamato's room because she likes him, but when Sheila is gone says she just said it to get rid of her, meaning she's not so childish that she'd all worked up about it. Then again, she'd only say feel the need if she was feeling frustrated in the first place.
  • Verbal Tic: Because she’s just that American, Stacy randomly peppers her speech with Fuck! and Rock!
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: When having a splash fight with Yamato, her bikini top comes off and vanishes never to be seen again. Yamato doesn't even pretend he didn't see anything, much to her irritation.
  • Wild Hair: Her hair already looks pretty crazy in its normal style, but when she wears it in a ponytail she looks like she just went through a tumble dryer.
  • Willfully Weak: Her best technique, Ultra Rock, makes her much quicker and stronger, but it's also basically impossible for her to actually do anything but fight in this state, so she doesn't use it much.

Lee Jinchu

Voiced by: Asami Imai

Lee is the rank 16 maid and a former assassin that once targeted Mikado. After being foiled, she was recruited into the Kuki corporation. Contrasting her former occupation, she's rather motherly and has an awful sense of humor. She isn't as strong as Stacy, but is very intelligent and a much more competent attendant.

  • Ascended Extra: Stacy and Lee went from minor characters referred to as Maid 1 and Maid 2note  defeated by Azumi’s incompetence rather than direct attacks to being high ranking Kuki servants around the competency level of characters like Chris or Miyako. They even got their own routes eventually, both of which are surprisingly good.
  • Badass Bookworm: Lee is not as strong as Stacy, but she’s a lot smarter and even has a special technique to quickly learn how to do things perfectly. Azumi considers her to be her most likely successor.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: She has the skills of an assassin and the story doesn't shy away from admitting that she's killed quite a few people over the years. Her skills are all about sabotage and neutralizing targets without giving them a chance to fight back. However, she's unfailingly loyal, kind and even outright motherly.
  • Battle Butler: Both of them.
  • Boxed Crook: Captured by Claudio attempting to assassinate Mikado. Claudio stated he wished to scout her for the Kuki corporation and after about two weeks of negotiation she agreed so long as she would not have to turn in her former comrades. She helps with anti assassination work.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: If you consider Lee to be a far more sensible employee than the completely unreliable Stacy, just remember that she spends her training periods practicing elaborate death scenes.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke: Lee has a rather strange sense of humor but really wants to be good at comedy. It's just not her strong suit.
  • Characterization Marches On: In the original Majikoi Lee was a lot more aggressive and not nearly as polite. She actually sounds more like Stacy.
  • Christmas Cake: Though only in their early 20s, both Stacy and Lee get a bit jealous when Yamato decides to go for Azumi over them, so he drily notes they must have been single for quite some time now. By the end of Azumi's route they're almost exactly the same age Azumi was at the start and still single.
  • Combat Pragmatist: In a direct fight Lee is not particularly tough, being below even Stacy. However, she has the skills of an assassin, so that's not really the point. Coming to a direct fight in the first place would be a sign that she's already failed.
  • The Comically Serious: Lee's dreams of being a comedian are undermined by her serious nature and flat voice.
  • Cool Big Sis: In the routes where Yamato is working as a servent at the Kuki Corporation, she really likes spoiling him and generally helping him out whenever she can. She can't even bring herself to be angry with him when he accidently enters the baths while she, Stacy and Azumi are already in there (even when he inadvertently gropes her and Stacy's breasts).
  • Corpsing: Lee likes to pretend to be dead and is gearing up for a competition, so she asks for Yamato’s assistance to make sure she doesn’t laugh or anything while acting. She holds out well under tickling and whatnot, but when he makes a terrible pun she bursts out laughing. Her ears are also quite sensitive. This training proves crucial given how serious the judges try to make everyone corpse in round two: If Yamato hadn't gotten a rather perverted interest in what she was doing, she would have failed.
  • Death Glare: As seen when she gets ready to attack.
  • Emotionless Girl: Lee is very inexpressive and shows little emotional range. It actually bothers her quite a bit because it makes her feel like she feels nothing. She starts stalking people, each of whom bears a similarity to herself, in the hopes of being able to show more positive emotions.
  • Foil: Stacy and Lee are basically complete opposites. Stacy is loud, hot blooded and fairly strict while Lee is quiet, cool and likes to spoil Yamato.
  • Green-Eyed Epiphany: After hours and hours of ship tease with little real progress, Lee finds herself getting uncomfortable while watching Tsubame and Momoyo fiddle with Yamato.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Stacy and Lee are best friends, partners and largely inseparable.
  • Hitman with a Heart: An assassion known as the Snake found Lee in an alleyway after ‘work’ and, seemingly tired of just killing people, took her in, gave her a name and raised her. He hid his job from her, though his colleagues thought he wanted her to be his successor. He just wanted to leave one good thing in the world to make up for all the wrongs he had committed. However, she killed an attacker herself at the age of seven and entered the business there. However, she generally only assassinated people she was at least told were evil themselves, though when it came time to try to kill Mikado it became clear that she was lied to at least sometimes.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Lee runs from Yamato when he confesses because she finds her bloodstained history too gruesome.
  • Instant Expert: Lee possesses the ability to study the actions of others and perfect their ability to an even greater level. It's apparently quite tiring, however, and not much use in a direct fight. Still, it's presumably why she's a good teacher, administrator and assassin: she had good models to observe.
  • Last-Name Basis: Lee is actually her family name. Her personal name, Jinchu, is very rarely mentioned.
  • Luminescent Blush: Lee worries about how inexpressive she is, but she gets rather huge blushes in front of Yamato.
  • Mega Manning: By observing her opponent, she can come up with a flawless or even superior imitation of it. Rather than Youshi’s basic copying skills, it’s rather studying the real heart of the technique and grasping it fully. However, this ability is very tiring and, further, is noted not to be terribly useful in a direct fight.
  • New Transfer Student: Lee gets interested in the student life and transfers into 3-F when the Kuki corporation decides they need a third year student to keep an eye on Seiso and Momoyo.
  • Nice Girl: Lee is very sweet and motherly, though she doesn't realize it herself.
  • Ninja Maid: Lee is a former assassin and is much less flashy than Stacy.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: She shares the A-3 fandisc with Stacy, which is apparently the meido disc. Their routes are separate, however.
  • Pungeon Master: Dishes out puns regularly. Zozuma tries to hear her out since apparently his wife likes them, but he doesn’t even understand what she’s talking about. Though his sense of humor is pretty faulty as well and he retorts with a terrible kanji pun.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Stacy and Lee respectively.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Lee doesn’t respond to anyone that approaches her with ill intentions, such as giving false compliments for her comedy act. Yamato isn’t exactly a Nice Guy, but he shows genuine interest in her hobbies and supports her comedy attempts even when he thinks they’re bad simply because he doesn’t want to hurt a friend’s feelings. But her own sense of self-worth is too low for her to even accept a confession at first let alone pursue him.
  • So Unfunny, It's Funny: Not only are a lot of Lee’s puns terrible in their own right, but they’re also kanji puns. Meaning in spoken dialogue they don’t come across well. That said, her terrible sense of humor itself is played for laughs.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Lee doesn’t talk about it much compared to her comedy act, but she takes shumai absolutely seriously. She seems to attribute her good skin to eating it all the time as well.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Though her adoptive father tried to keep his business secret from her, when he was attacked at home and an invader slipped inside, Lee killed them herself despite only being seven. She asked to join him at his work and that’s how she became an assassin, despite his misgivings.
  • The Worf Effect: Lee is taken out near the midpoint of Koyuki route to reveal that Oomura is actually by far the strongest of the ten warriors.

Koi Kiriyama

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu

Koi is the ranked 42 butler of the Kuki corporation and one of the supporters of Marple's. He's fairly unpopular due to his slimy attitude and fixation on his mother.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Much to Marple’s horror, at the end of the True route he decides she’s like his mother.
  • Battle Butler: A requirement of being a Kuki family butler.
  • Bishōnen: By looks alone, he gathers some fangirls during Seiso's route.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's polite, helpful, and a rather smarmy supporter of the bad guy.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Remains calm and polite even when being called a mother-con.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Koi is superficially polite, but also condescending and hostile.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: He switches sides to the Kuki family at the end of Monshiro's story mode, though saying that he was a villain before or an ally after doesn't quite fit his unchanging attitude.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Though considered obnoxious for his fault finding attitude, the other servants grudgingly admit that the Kuki corporation does need people like that. And when he begins gunning for Azumi's possession while she's too upset to work, he kind of has a point when Azumi herself demoted someone for similar reasons at the beginning of the route.
  • Parental Incest: He's in love with his (dead) mother. No other woman can compare.
  • Pet the Dog: Though slimy and unpopular, if helping you doesn't interfere with his own goals he's quite likely to help you with no benefit to himself. He helps Monshiro get closer to her mother, gives Stacy advice against Dominguez and supports Yamato as Monshiro's attendant.
  • Smug Snake: Always, always smug and dismissive.

Sheila Colombo

Voiced by: Eri Sendai

Sheila is a former mercenary and acquaintance of Stacy's. She's hired by the Kuki corporation at the beginning of Stacy's route and quickly climbs the ranks with her poison abilities after the new promotion system goes into effect. Though she acts cutesy, she's as poisonous as her powers.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: She's been somewhat isolated throughout much of her life because she was born with natural poison based abilities. It doesn't really bother her that much, but when Yamato learns she's been spreading poison around to keep away dangerous animals and insects she's rather surprised and rather happy. Most people start to avoid or dislike her when they learn what she can do.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Always wears pink cat ears Because Reasons. She also has a fake tail to go with it.
  • Attention Whore: Sheila is a complete performer and makes sure to be the center of attention whenever she feels the need. Given that 'performer' is quite accurate with her job as an idol it makes sense, though.
  • Be a Whore to Get Your Man: Sheila tries luring Yamato in with casual sex despite her own virginity with an unclear understanding of how much she wants him rather than just wanting to hurt Stacy. Given that it’s Stacy’s route, not the route for the girl that hates Stacy, you’re supposed to say no.
  • Becoming the Mask: Though initially intending to seduce Yamato just to piss off Stacy, she ends up pretty serious about wanting him. She gets another ending in A-5 and while she does taunt Stacy at the end about getting a boyfriend, this time Stacy didn't really have anything to do with it.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Sheila’s words are as poisonous as her body despite her cutesy talk.
  • Blessed with Suck: She was born with a special ability much like the Ryouzanpaku girls. Her ability, however, is to absorb and produce poisons, which made her quite unpopular when she was younger.
  • Born Winner: She was born with the ability to produce poisons from her body or add them to her body and mix them up. She's capable of creating hundreds of different types at this point.
  • Breakout Character: Sheila had a lot of people wishing she'd gotten a more elaborate ending in A-3 and while that wasn't possible given Minatosoft had already announced the contents of the next two fandisks, they do seem to have given her another ending in A-5 to appease fans.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Sheila relies completely on poisons to fight. They’re effective, but against an opponent that guards themselves cleverly she has essentially no other tricks to use.
  • The Fake Cutie: Sheila acts cute and innocent, but she's clearly quite unpleasant. In A-5 we see her interacting with people other than Stacy and she's apparently quite a bit nicer at those times.
  • Freakiness Shame: After Sheila scares away a wild animal with her poison, she reveals her special ability. Her poison is the reason they haven't had to deal with anything like annoying insects up to this point either. At this, Yamato immediately grabs her hand and thanks her for her hard work. She's really not used to people immediately appreciating her ability and even less so people willingly touching her once they know, which likely plays a big role in why she has a potential ending not long after.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Sheila wants to taunt Stacy over her crush on Yamato but it fails since Stacy is a bit too honest about it. She also can’t make Stacy bet Yamato on their match either. Good thing too: Haou tried that in the last fandisc and it really pissed him off. What kind of person bets someone else regardless of their feelings?
  • Kawaiiko: Acts extremely cutesy as part of her idol persona.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: She alludes to have a very large family back in Brazil. How large it is is unclear, but introductions to the entire extended family makes Yamato stop in apparent shock.
  • Master Poisoner: Azumi says that Sheila contains 77 different poisons within her body and is cheerfully corrected: It’s over 250 now. She’s warned not to misuse her abilities or face the wrath of the ninth ranking servant, who terrifies Sheila. She's hired primarily to detect poisons given her uncanny knack for it.
  • Mukokuseki: As her name hints, she's Brazilian. Really, though, does she actually look different than anyone else in a way that makes that clear? At least Stacy is designed to look AMERICAN.
  • Ninja Maid: Like all Kuki attendants, she's expected to know her way around a fight.
  • Perpetual Smiler: She's usually seem smiling, even when angry or being sarcastic. Whether or not she's actually happy, she's still a good balance to gloomy people like Takae and is thus assigned to be her escort over more possibly qualified people.
  • Poisonous Person: She absorbs poisons into herself, after which she can expel them again. Since they're contained with her, she gets around the rule that says no bringing poisoned objects into a fight.
  • Red Baron: She was once known as the Poison Spider, which is how Stacy still usually refers to her.
  • Relationship Sabotage: Tries to seduce Yamato just to frustrate Stacy by taking something she wants. She ends up having casual sex with him and then asks to go out with him afterward but, well, he already screwed up on that once with Chika and turns her down flat. Of course, she only had sex with him in the first place because she had come to genuinely like him.
  • The Rival: Bears a grudge against Stacy for apparently stabbing her once and the story makes it obvious that she'll be the final boss fight of the route. After Stacy wins Sheila seems to cool off a little on hating her.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Oh, she certainly has the image going for her, but it's basically just a lie used to sell stuff as an idol.
  • The Tease: She teases and flirts with Yamato to piss off Stacy, though she ends up getting pretty serious about it. Yamato, for his part, is largely disinterested though he's willing to have sex with her if there's no strings attached.
  • Third-Person Person: As part of her idol persona, she always talks about Sheila-chan.
  • Troll: Sheila hates Stacy and loves pissing her off. Though it does backfire when she’s trying to mock Stacy regarding her apparent jealousy regarding her breaking into Yamato’s room and Stacy easily admits to it, thus helping along their relationship.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Sheila is a lot nicer in Takae's route to the point where she hardly seems like the same character. But then you get her ending and she spends the last minute or two before the ending taunting Stacy since she has a cool boyfriend, recruited Takae and can probably get Yamato to join Kuki as well. She doesn't seem to grasp that Stacy is mostly just annoyed at her bragging about something Stacy doesn't care about in the slightest.
  • Verbal Tic: She sometimes pauses and then over enunciates the end of her sentence, often when she's faking politeness or at similar moments.

Kojuurou Takeda

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama

Ageha's butler and another carryover from They Are My Noble Masters. Ranked 999 of the servants of the Kuki Corporation, he is considered the weakest of them all and is only kept around due to sharing Ageha's rare blood type. Still, he's intensely loyal to his master and makes up for his lack of any skill with enthusiasm alone.

  • Battle Butler: Tries to be one at least.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting Ageha is the only thing that can get him to fight competently.
  • Boisterous Weakling: He's incredibly loud and feisty, but is basically a nobody strength wise.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: Ageha's.
  • Butt-Monkey: Perhaps the worst in the series. He makes Gakuto look good by comparison.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He actually manages to hurt Hume Hellsing quite a bit during Koyuki's route after he hurts Ageha, though he's promptly knocked out afterwards. Rank 999 can't be based on pure strength alone.
  • Determinator: Despite being completely talentless, he at the very least works hard.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Kojuurou tries taunting Haou by calling her a monkey to make her break ranks. It doesn’t work since Seiso is in control, but she’s definitely pissed. Did he forget that he basically has to live with her and can’t possibly avoid retaliation?
  • Hot-Blooded: Big time.
  • Idiot Hero: Don't think he makes up for his lack of strength with brains. If anything, he's even dumber than he is weak.
  • Large Ham: The largest.
  • The Load: Pretty much a thorn in the Kuki Family's side, the only reason he's still their employee is because they need his blood.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: His mannerisms alone are enough to make funny moments.
  • Took a Level in Badass: With his first victory after some hard training in Stacy's route he jumps allll the way to rank... 996. But after some mental training with Claudio, he suddenly jumps 250 ranks all at once and Tsubone wonders if he's finally started to unlock his hidden potential, hinting that the Kuki family has some real expectations for him.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Ageha.

     The Bushido Plan 


Voiced by: Ryouko Tanaka
Click here 

Haou (supreme king/overlord) is Marple's dragon, an extremely powerful and boisterous figure. She is the linchpin for the true Bushido Plan.

  • And Then What?: Pulled on herself during her route. She’s pretty confident she can break out of the enclosure around her by striking north, but then what? Everyone is still her enemy and they’re not going to give up. She also has no food and is already injured. Yamato has to come in and point out that the most prudent option is to quietly surrender to avoid as much punishment as possible.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Attempts to invoke the idea just gain her a pitying look from Yamato. Even if politics worked like that, it would just piss people like Momoyo, Tesshin and Hume. Beating just one of those three would be hard enough.
  • Bad Liar: She's incredibly obvious when she tries to lie. Her poker face is also awful. While Touma probably could have cheated her at Old Maid without her noticing, he didn't have to because she wears her heart on her sleeve.
  • Berserk Button: Haou hates being laughed at, going from treating Tesshin as a Worthy Opponent to instantly pulling out her halberd.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: She's loud and has an aggressive attitude, but she's also quite friendly in her own way and likes to laugh and have a good time.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is extremely powerful and has one of the largest bust sizes among the female cast. They're somehow larger than Seiso's, despite them sharing the same body.
  • Break the Haughty: Haou loses three easy matches in a row and gets disqualified from the fourth, followed by seeing the also defeated Yoshitsune having the full support of her troops while all of Haou's abandoned her. She’s so depressed at her failure that she returns to Seiso, and in following matches she actually does what she's supposed to and wins over and over.
  • Brutal Honesty: Apart from Stacy most people try to humor Lee and her terrible attempts at comedy. Haou bluntly asked what exactly she was supposed to be laughing at and apparently made her cry.
  • Catchphrase: When she feels she's not getting enough respect and admiration she has a tendency to declare 'I am the Overlord! I am the strongest!' or similar statements.
  • Character Development: In A-2, she grows steadily more stressed and irritable over repeated stupid losses that were all her fault. After this negative growth, she steps back, relaxes and lets Yamato and someone else take over for a bit before returning to the field to lead more reasonably. There's also effort made to overcome the errors she made as Xiang Yu, such as believing she had been betrayed by her strategist, Fan Zeng, which is what she calls Yamato sometimes.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She gets the standard jealous line 'Don’t talk about other girls when we’re on a date' line, but the real weird one is right after that when a lion stares at Yamato too long and she yells at it that Yamato is hers.
  • Contralto of Danger: She has what is likely the lowest-pitched female voice in the series and while she's not necessarily bad, her aggression is matched only by Momoyo's and she's even less restrained. In contrast, Seiso's voice is quite high and girly.
  • Cool Big Sis: When Momoyo goes away to train in the mountains, Haou decides to fill in for her as Yamato's older sister.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Haou is very strong, but has some trouble with precise application of power and as a result she’s weaker when fighting someone that isn’t trying to match her in power but rather launches lots of weaker attacks while attempting to evade. It’s not enough to give Mayucchi or even Ageha a win, but they last longer than anyone except Tatsuko, who ends up coming out of the huge brawl looking indestructible.
  • The Dragon: In Koyuki's route she serves as the right-hand of Ms. Marple, the Rank 2 servant of the Kuki Corporation, helping her further the true Project S.
  • Evasive Fight-Thread Episode: There’s a great deal of teasing about a match between a serious Momoyo and Haou, but the story just hints at equal standing between the two of them and leaves it at that.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Referred to as Haou throughout the true route of S, which is just a title meaning something like 'Supreme king'. Her actual name is only used once. In A-2 when it's no longer a secret to the audience as it turns out she identifies more as Seiso anyway, not Xiang Yu.
  • Fatal Flaw: The story goes out of its way to show that Haou is more powerful than just about anyone in the story barring maybe a serious Momoyo, but she’s too aggressive, proud and unsocial and ends up all alone by making potential allies into enemies. Even if she can take Ageha, Tesshin, Lu, the Itagakis and Shakadou, she can’t take them all on at once. Originally, the plan was that Haou wouldn't be deployed until she reached adulthood and therefore would have better grounding than she displays, but for whatever reason this simply doesn't happen in any route she appears in.
  • Friendless Background: Haou's inability to make allies is given a slight spin to being unable to make friends at all.
  • The Gambling Addict: She bets Yamato's clothing and then loses fifteen matches in a row before he can stop her. He has to drag her aside and get her to swear never to use him in a bet again.
  • Hellish Pupils: Haou has slitted red eyes.
  • Hidden Depths: Given a chance to relax, Haou spends her time reading. Granted, she’s reading battle manga, but she’s still reading. She also enjoys taking care of plants.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum: After the disastrous first battles, Haou is deliberately kept from being given assignments like taking out the entire enemy army on her own.
  • Humble Pie: She's able to avoid admitting responsibility for the three genuine losses she caused, but when the fourth match comes around and her army has abandoned her, she's forced to admit that it's probably her fault. If it were only losing that caused her soldiers to refuse to come fight for her then Yoshitsune would have been equally unpopular after her loss, but Minamoto Army's morale stayed just as high as before. Fortunately, she's able to actually learn from her mistakes.
  • Immune to Bullets: Stacy hits her with a minigun to no effect.
  • Incoming Ham: First line in A-2? A lengthy and loud Evil Laugh, followed thirty seconds later by declaring her intention to take over the world, starting with Japan.
  • Insult Backfire: Haou calls Yamato an annoying lecturer and praises herself for deigning to listen to him when he’s being reasonable, but Marple is simply amused and impressed that he figured out Haou’s weakness so quickly.
  • Jerkass Realization: She realizes she's being a dick to her troops after four losses in a row that were all her fault, so she refrains from the fifth battle and before the sixth makes an effort to get to know her troops better and actually follow orders.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
    • Haou is softer than she looks, a trait Tsubame had to bet on after reading her history. She still identifies as Seiso, meaning that she considers Kyougoku her closest friend. When he appears to be very disappointed in her for her actions as Haou, she's so miserable that it opens her up to an attack from Tsubame before she realizes it was just a recording.
    • Yamato is the only one apart from Kyougoku to realize in A-2 that despite Haou beating the crap out of everyone, she wasn't the one picking fights for the most part. If anything, she gave her idea of a friendly overture to everyone, so it shouldn't be impossible to reason with her if you don't start off immediately hostile.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: When awakened early in her route, she quickly gets into a lot of fights because her brash personality causes others to assume that she's hostile. While she manages to fight everyone off, eventually too many people who are at least as strong as she is show up on top of groups of them who are almost as good. While she gets away briefly, Yamato convinces her that she's in an unwinnable position and needs to surrender, which she grudgingly acknowledges.
  • Large Ham: Whatever skills Haou may have, subtlety is not among them.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: She loses four war games in a row, all of them against inferior opponents. Instead of relying on the agreed-upon tactics, she charges out all on her own and forces the bulk of the friendly troops to try to fill in the gap she's left. She's also easily baited even when she tries to hold back. She's so bad about it that she manages to take out her own team's flag once after getting repelled by an obvious counter strike.
  • The Millstone: Despite being the strongest person in the war games since Tatsuko is too dangerous when going berserk, she causes her team to lose three matches in a row due to her stubborn refusal to follow simple directions or resist obvious taunts. When it finally sinks in that it’s entirely her fault that her army abandoned her for the fourth match she steps down and lets Seiso play the fifth, which they win. Must be embarrassing to be less valuable than a person who adds absolutely nothing to her team except boosting morale.
  • My Greatest Failure: Haou was one of the most talented people in the entire world before her death, capable of taking on armies herself presumably given that she could never gain allies. However, despite her skill and intelligence, in the end she committed suicide after complete failure. Reminding her of this is usually enough to make her stop being obnoxiously arrogant and realize she's heading for the same fate again if she keeps being a jerk.
  • Named Weapons: Her favored weapon is the halberd Houtengeki, Lu Bu's signature weapon.
  • Nature Lover: She retains Seiso's love of flowers and continues to water them in her place. She also dislikes seeing animals in cages and says that she will replace all zoos with safari parks when she takes over Japan.
  • Never My Fault: She bitches out her troops after losing to a clearly inferior opponent, ignoring that it was only possible because of her own actions. Her troops eventually get sick of it and bail on her temporarily.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Haou isn’t really interested in dating, but she finds it increasingly irritating that despite the book loving Seiso getting love letters constantly, she hasn’t gotten any. Not one. She laments that the women in the academy are bolder than the men, barring a few exceptions like Kyougoku.
  • No Indoor Voice: If Haou isn't yelling, it's because she isn't in the scene.
  • No-Sell: Haou flat out ignores most of Tsubame's cheap tricks. Poison, stun grenades, nets, misdirection, feints, none of it works. She doesn't even bother to dodge anything but the net, which most likely wouldn't have done anything anyway given that she later shows the ability to take 100,000 volts without even feeling it. Pretending she could only use her recovery ability once does work though, since that's more of a psychological trick.
  • No Social Skills: Haou can only demand, not ask. And nothing is ever her own fault.
  • Now That's Using Your Teeth!: Haou catches Mayucchi’s best attack with her teeth. This technique has already been shown to easily slice through Shakadou's best defensive techniques and Haou's only comment is that she doesn't much care for the taste of iron.
  • One-Man Army: Given her inability to make allies or use subordinates effectively, it's hinted that she basically did most of the conquering work all by herself.
  • Ore Onna: She's loud, aggressive and has far more masculine body language than the bookworm, Seiso, and on top of that she uses very masculine pronouns. Surprisingly shy, though.
  • Overused Running Gag: Haou and Benkei throw people into the pool so often that Claudio just makes a net over it.
  • Pride: Haou has huge amounts of pride and is incredibly stubborn as a result. Which is not to say she's incapable of listening to reason: It just takes about ten times longer than necessary to convince her to back down.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Haou has bright, aggressive red eyes unlike the calm Seiso's yellow ones. It may be a reference to how Xiang Yu was said to have a double pupil.
  • Secret Test of Character: A minor example. After Yamato declares himself not to be as cowardly as the other guys in the school, Haou changes the topic and then mentions she’s been practicing her signature for when she becomes a celebrated figure. He says her handwriting is awful and she’s pleased that he isn’t just a Yes-Man.
  • Self-Serving Memory: Haou goes from saying that gender doesn’t matter, and then says it’s okay for her to bet Yamato’s clothes because it doesn’t matter if a guy strips. Obviously she can’t bet hers. Unfortunately, Yamato recorded the first statement when she tries to deny it happened.
  • She's Got Legs: The game's CGs likes to put more emphasis on them than with Seiso's.
  • Shrinking Violet: Upon actually falling for someone, she becomes so nervous that she can't even stay in the same room as them. Upon a Relationship Upgrade, her idea of an aggressive relationship is giving Yamato an exchange diary.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Though she’s suspiciously sensitive about being called stupid, she admits that she’s not exactly a genius. However, she intends to continue getting good grades and by all appearances does exactly that.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: When she and her twenty eight man troop fall into a pit, Kokoro tries to pepper her and the troops with arrows. They take cover while she just spins her halberd to cause a gust of air to blow them away.
  • Split Personality: Played with. Haou is much more aggressive and arrogant than Seiso and the two of them can 'talk' to each other to an extent, but they each consider the other to be the same person as themselves. They value the same things, have the same basic hobbies and the same abilities.
  • Strip Poker: Well, more like strip go fish than anything, but Haou still manages to lose fifteen matches in the time it takes Yamato to get from the pool to the gambling room. Unfortunately, she was betting his clothes. Fortunately, Cap was there to bail him out with alternate payment.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: She can beat Ageha, Shakadou and Tesshin without much effort, which puts her about on par with Momoyo. However, during the four man free for all she’s at a disadvantage when fighting only Yoshitsune and Tsubame.
  • Super Breath: With a light breath, she can repel exploding arrows and shots from a bazooka.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Haou is one to Seiso, but apart from arrogance and stubbornness she's really not that bad, despite first appearances.
  • Super Strength: Haou almost decides to stamp the earth to end an earthquake before Momoyo stops her.
  • Super Toughness: Haou tanks Bishamonten and proceeds to take out Tesshin. However, as a result, her performance during the climax suffers. She also gets zapped by 100000 volts at one point and isn't affected in the slightest.
  • Take Over the World: Her ultimate goal. With Kuki backing she's content to sit back and wait. If awakened early, she rashly tries to do it all by herself, though Yamato eventually makes her cool down.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Haou keeps underestimating Tatsuko and repeatedly knocking her down, after which she pops back up even stronger than before. Each time she knocks her off, Tatsuko grows even stronger and manages to be the second (after Ageha) to actually injure Haou and the first to inflict serious damage, prompting Haou to actually get serious, though Tsubame interrupts the fight. Afterward, Tatsuko simply goes back to sleep, seemingly unharmed despite taking three times as many attacks as anyone else put up with.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Haou does not even know any special techniques. She gets by with raw stats. She can simply tank the strongest attacks shown and has the power to cause an earthquake with a stomp of her foot. She didn't even train to get as strong as she is.
  • Walking the Earth: Post timeskip in Stacy's route, she appears to have been awakened early once more, but instead of causing problems she simply wanders around with Momoyo.
  • We Can Rule Together: Anyone that impresses her will generally get an invitation into Haou's army. Tesshin is asked to be her first bodyguard, Mayucchi is asked to be her fencing instructor and Yamato is forcibly made into her tactician and chief advisor. She's also fond of the Genji clones and considers them her subordinates already, promising to treat them well.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Apart from brute strength she doesn't have any particular skills and her goals are alarmingly direct. So she asks where she should head first in order to take over Japan.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Haou beats the crap out of Tsubame, but when Tsubame finally lands an attack she realizes that the attack from Tesshin earlier is still hampering her performance, a contributing factor to her eventual loss. In A-2, she tries the same attack again while Haou is only lightly injured and only manages to really piss her off. Near the end, Haou takes both her and Yoshitsune at the same time, though their infighting didn't exactly help.

Yoshitsune Minamoto

Voiced by: Rina Sato

The ever formal, lightning fast warrior. A clone made by the Kuki Corporation, she was raised with Benkei and Yoichi from a young age, and acts as the leader of their group.

  • Adorkable: She's sweet, very polite, gets embarrassed easily and has a teddie bear that she named "Maru-chan". Plus, just look at her.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Though the clones don't have real parents, they were raised by a fairly normal man and woman on an island south of Japan. When Yamato meets them in A-5, they tell embarrassing stories about the clones. Yoshitsune, for example, was really scared of the dark and Benkei helpfully adds that she still can't sleep in total darkness.
  • Bokukko: In the later parts of her route she goes under the alias Shiratori Kanako to see what it's like when people don't know who she is, so she obviously can't use the third person anymore. She goes with boku rather than watashi because she feels more comfortable with that pronoun.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The gentle girl to Yoichi.
  • Butt-Monkey: Teased mercilessly. Mostly by Benkei, but even Yamato at one point bets her underwear without her consent right in front of her.
  • Cloning Blues: It takes Yamato awhile to notice, but she actually obsesses over being as much like the historical Yoshitsune as she can. For example, he asks her whether she prefers apples or pineapples and she answers apples, but then he asks what if she learns that the original Yoshitsune preferred pineapples and she without hesitation changes her answer to that. It takes her a moment to understand his point when he tells her she needs to establish her own identity.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She and the other clones grew up on an island south of Japan. Unlike Benkei, she played in the ocean a lot and made friends with the dolphins.
  • Gender Flip: She says not to let her different gender affect one's perceptions of the hero Yoshitsune as one of her first lines.
  • Historical Domain Character: Yoshitsune is a clone of a famous Japanese hero, Minamoto-no-Yoshitsune.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: She notices that ever since she started dating Yamato Benkei has been drinking more and that she has a thing for Yamato. So she asks Yamato if he'd be willing to bring her into the relationship. For anyone else, she wouldn't suggest such a thing, but she cares a lot about Benkei.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her primary weapon is the katana, but she is still quite capable without it.
  • Little Sister Heroine: Used as a joke if nothing else during Benkei's route. Upon hearing that Yamato was compared to Minamoto Yoritomo (the original Yoshitsune's half brother) she nervously asks if she can call him oniichan since she feels left out while Benkei is dating him and Yoichi calls him aniki. That said, for those who know anything about how Yoshitsune died this is rather amusing: Yoshitsune bore arms against Yoritomo, lost, fled while Benkei bought him time and committed seppuku.
  • Nice Girl: She's one of the friendliest girls in the cast, though sometimes her dignity suffers for it.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone
  • Promoted to Love Interest: In the fifth release of A she gets her own route.
  • The Rival: To Mayucchi during the Koyuki route. She starts off better but as the fight progresses, the competition makes Mayucchi rapidly improve until she finally wins.
  • Sarashi: She wears one under her clothes, like a true samurai girl.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: She's at least as good as Mayucchi, but tends to lack subtlety, is socially clumsy and a bit of a crybaby. Worse, unlike Mayucchi, she has a hard time gearing herself up for a fight with people she likes.
  • Third-Person Person: Yoshitsune has a pretty cutesy way of talking for a legendary hero. In A-5, Yamato eventually notices that she's a bit obsessive about the historical Yoshitsune, so the pronoun usage may be her way of emphasizing her identity to herself.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Benkei and Yoichi.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Mayucchi, given that they don't want to be fighting in the first place and are roughly equal in skill.

Benkei Musashibou

Voiced by: Nami Kurokawa

The busty and strong, laid-back and life-long companion of Yoshitsune and Yoichi. As a clone made by the Kuki Corporation, she's been Yoshitsune's closest friend since they were born, and is always making sure Yoichi reins in his idiosyncrasies, much to his chargrin.

  • The Alcoholic: Except it’s definitely not alcohol. Because Benkei is a minor and minors can’t drink alcohol. Even if she gets mild DT in the afternoon just from not drinking Definitely Not Alcohol in the morning.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Though the clones don't have real parents, they were raised by a fairly normal man and woman on an island south of Japan. When Yamato meets them in A-5, they tell embarrassing stories about the clones. After Benkei teases Yoshitsune, they note that she's always been a bit spoiled and really hates being alone.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Benkei’s best move requires her to be badly beaten down without getting knocked out. It's also so exhausting that it can only be used for a few minutes at best and leaves her more or less helpless afterward.
  • Bifauxnen: She works with Yamato at a bar briefly early in her route in order to help out Gen. Yamato compliments her on how the bartender outfit suits her, though she ignores the compliment. Given that she prefers to be treated as a girl she's probably not too thrilled about pulling off the look easily.
  • Big Sister Bully: Benkei loves teasing Yoshitsune and has decided the best way to keep Yoichi in line is with threats of violence. Even at optimal range, using his best technique and Benkei letting him blather on about his next strike she still beats him easily.
  • Boobs of Steel: Her ample bust matches her reputation as one of the strongest members of the cast.
  • But Liquor Is Quicker
    • Given that the allied group is outnumbered in the Koyuki route and morale among the clones, especially Benkei and Yoichi on the enemy side is low, Yamato volunteers to take care of both of them despite having no combat skills. End result, drinking party which may or may not devolve into sexyfuntimes for Yamato thanks to everyone getting awfully drunk.
    • In A-4, she pretends to be drunk and starts licking Yamato, saying she won’t resist if he jumps her. Sadly, Kousonshou walks in just as he’s about to do it.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: In her route she's not willing to do anything about the truckloads of ship tease with Yamato until Tatsuko and other girls make it very obvious that he's unlikely to be single for much longer. In other fandisk routes she's too late and clearly gets upset when she realizes Yamato is already taken.
  • Catchphrase: Mendou. Troublesome. Everything is just too troublesome to bother with.
  • The Chikan: Benkei figures it would probably be dangerous for her to travel alone with Yoshitsune by train. After all, she probably wouldn’t be able to resist groping her master.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: One of the first hints that Benkei is starting to view her relationship with Yamato as something more than Just Friends is her irritability over Tatsuko’s obvious infatuation. She even refuses to share any Kawakami Water!
  • Color Failure: In Monshiro’s afterstory, the test rankings go Touma, Hideo and then someone named Honda. Benkei turns white and falls apart in horror before realizing her own score was equal to Honda’s, so she can keep drinking Kawakami water.
  • Comeback Mechanic: Benkei’s best technique is not only improved by how bad the situation is, it can’t even be used unless she’s on the verge of defeat in the first place.
  • Comically Small Bribe: Benkei’s defense is impenetrable. Unless you bribe her with fish cutlet.
  • Cool Big Sis: She tends to act as the older sister of the group. For Yoichi, she's terrifying.
  • Died Standing Up: Benkei’s original death is referenced after she passes out just after defeating Saki. She’s unconscious, but still standing. She still has a fight to go in this match, though, so it's good that she woke up quickly.
  • Ditzy Genius: She's lazy and moody so it comes as a surprise to most that she's actually easily the most intelligent of the clones. Seiso herself notes that Benkei gets top grades largely without effort while Seiso herself has to study constantly to maintain her level.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": Yamato calls Benkei anegonote  once and she instantly tells him to knock it off. Maaaaaybe she doesn’t want him to see her as an older sister?
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Benkei seems to realize early on that she's stuck in the Yoshitsune route. When her boss inevitably ends up dating the guy she likes, she says she's going to go get drunk.
  • Dude Magnet: Benkei is rather popular with guys as well as being quite approachable due to her laid back attitude.
  • Everyone Can See It: Everyone sees Benkei x Yamato coming a mile away. Before anything really gets started Yoichi pulls Yamato aside and warns him of the “Horrible danger” Benkei represents.
  • Finishing Move: Her most powerful technique, unique to her, is the ability to gain power relative to the hopelessness of the fight she's in and the amount of damage she's already taken. Using it allows her to gain a victory over a master class fighter. However, despite the power of this technique, it can only be used once in a fight for obvious reasons, doesn't last long and leaves her in poor condition afterward. She's also vulnerable to counterattacks when trying to set it up, a weakness that Margit exploits, though it's unclear how much of this was due to Benkei's poor condition at the time.
  • The Gadfly: Gets a lot of fun out of teasing Yoshitsune.
  • Gender Flip: Exactly why Benkei is a girl is intentionally never elaborated on. Everyone is told not to worry about the whole thing early on.
  • Genius Bruiser: Benkei is very tough and very lazy, but as part of an agreement to be allowed to keep drinking Definitely Not Alcohol on campus she has to get in the top three grades on every exam. She's also never lost a shogi match to Usami Kyojin, though Yamato also beats him regularly.
  • Green-Eyed Epiphany: When Benkei starts getting jealous of other girls, she realizes she needs to make her feelings clear to Yamato. After all, with Tatsuko and Miyako hanging around she can’t just take their friendship for granted.
  • Hidden Depths: She's quite good at cooking, is an excellent shogi player and likes collecting sake without actually drinking it. She's also surprisingly sensitive about her appearance, though unsurprisingly hurting her feelings will result in more damage to the offender than her.
  • Historical Domain Character: Benkei was a monk and close follower of the real life Yoshitsune. The clone retains this role... sort of.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: After getting beaten around by Nabeshima the entire match, Benkei pulls out her best technique and takes him out in one hit, though he's more fit to continue afterward than she is.
  • Immodest Orgasm: It's a wonder she doesn't shatter every piece of glass within a five mile radius.
  • Improvised Weapon: When twenty armed opponents rush her, she just asks Yamato toss her a mop.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Okay, her looks are good, but she's also stated to have a sexy aura around her, which obviously doesn't show up in this kind of medium.
  • Just Friends: There’s a lot of ship tease with Benkei even when they’re friends and just friends. She's aware of it, but not quite comfortable with taking the risk of changing the relationship until she sees the competition is actually tougher than she thought.
  • The Lad-ette: Benkei lounges around and drinks Not Alcohol constantly while taking less care of her appearance than anyone. It's made her popular with guys, though they're also frequently intimidated or unable to completely see her as a girl as a result.
  • Lazy Bum: Being so lazy and laid back is why Yamato can get along with her so well. This goes well with Yamato's innate ability to earn the affection of older women, so she seems to always be somewhat interested in Yamato even if she isn't proactive about it. Near the end of her route she becomes a bit more proactive when she realizes she's been relying on Yoshitsune too much.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Yamato doesn’t realize that this not only a thing that Benkei can and will do, but hadn’t done it yet even in close fights like with Tatsuko and Saki. However, Nabeshima is still so far above her that in order to a victory she needs to use her special final technique, which leaves her basically helpless afterward while he's merely stunned and moderately injured.
  • Lightning Bruiser: People assume that she's a pure power type that simply overwhelms with pure strength. She's actually very fast as well, however, meaning actual pure power types fare poorly against her as the fight as Benkei completely takes the initiative and either controls the fight through range and speed or simply ends it before the opponent is ready.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Benkei thinks she worries about Yoshitsune because she thinks Yoshitsune can't cope without her and also refuses to be on a different team than Yoshitsune because she thinks it would break her heart. However, Yamato realizes and points out that the one who seems most affected by their parting is Benkei herself, which comes as a shock to her because she can't really deny it. Eventually, she resolves to do something about it and briefly uses Yamato as support, joins a team other than Yoshitsune's and fights her in a duel. She realizes she shouldn't be too dependent on Yamato either, but that's something to work on in the future.
  • Lovely Angels: With Tatsuko in Tsubame's route.
  • Messy Hair: Memetic enough to get her a Fan Nickname - Sex Hairnote .
  • Ms. Fanservice: Everyone notes how sexy she is. She also invokes this herself while wearing her school uniform since she always has her cleavage on display. In Yoshitsune's route, at the water park, Benkei sports a black bikini that the artists really wanted to make as sexy as possible by giving her a sprite where she's leaning forward in a very seductive way.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Much as she teases Yoshitsune, Benkei considers her the boss. She’ll support her decisions either way, even if she thinks they suck.
  • One of the Boys: Benkei is popular with guys, but with the air of “You’re a dude I can feel comfortable calling hot.” In other words, she’s not really treated like a girl. She rather appreciates it when Yamato makes essentially pointless gentlemanly gestures that are mostly just intended to show that he does think of her as a girl. He's much more in need of her protection than she is of his.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone
  • Optional Sexual Encounter: Yamato has a bit of a drinking party with Benkei near the climax of Koyuki's route in S and near the end of it can optionally have sex with her. It locks you into a friendship rather than lovers ending with Koyuki, however.
  • Playing Tennis with the Boss: Nabeshima excels at returning projectiles, but Benkei bets on being able to surprise him enough to get him with her own attack return. She fails and takes a ton of damage.
  • Pre-Climax Climax: Benkei has an optional sex scene right before all the fighting starts in S' true route.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: In the first release of A she gets her own route.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Benkei hesitantly asks if Yamato is satisfied with being Just Friends and suggests maybe they could try going out instead.
  • Ship Tease: She gets quite a bit of ship tease during the common and character routes of S due to her nature as a lazy bum that Yamato can hang out with easily. Routes like Stacy and Lee's hint that she's one of the few girls that's always interested in Yamato.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She's only allowed to drink Kawakami Water on campus if she always gets within the top three scores of her year. Given that Aoi and Hideo always effortlessly take spots one and two, that only leaves one position for her.
  • Super Mode: When pressed to her limits and the situation looks hopeless, she can briefly gain power far above her normal level with her own special technique. Within just a few seconds, she throws Nabeshima into the air and slams him back down hard enough to knock him out briefly before he can even react, though she's unable to continue fighting in any further matches while he stands up again afterward only moderately damaged.
  • Super Strength: People consider her the power type given her attitude. While she's actually much faster than she looks, she does have very high physical strength and in pure muscle power is greatly superior to Yoshitsune, who is already strong enough to make craters in concrete while using a sword.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She's lazy, drinks a lot and her appearance is rarely well cared for, but likes to be thought of as girly and actually does know how to wear makeup. She's also a pretty good cook.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chikuwa. Yamato likes to bring them to her and says he's taming her with food.
  • Tsundere: Jokingly acts like one during her first date with Yamato. She says she wanted to "try it out".
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Yoshitsune and Yoichi.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Benkei's attitude is rather sloppy and laid back, but people find her quite attractive in part because of such traits. Her wild hair is especially admired. Furthermore, she usually does not wear makeup, though she does know how to put it on.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Benkei manages to produce chikuwa from her chest, leading Yamato to ask where those came from.
  • Wild Hair: Benkei’s hair is considered pretty by some, but is also long and much less well kept looking than the likes of Yoshitsune. Yoichi once made her cry by comparing it to seaweed, for which she made him cry a lot worse.

Yoichi Nasuno

Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki

The paranoid, angsty but brilliant archer companion of Yoshitsune and Benkei. He's actually a clone made by the Kuki Corporation. Despite his apparent distrust, he's actually easily tricked or persuaded if you take the right attitude.

  • Archer Archetype: Incredibly skilled archer who surpasses Miyako in both strength and stamina and rivals her in accuracy. He's also distant and haughty, though Benkei does her best to rein in those tendencies.
  • Big Brother Worship: Yoichi has great respect for Yamato to the point where Yamato can even convince him that regardless of what Yoshitsune and Benkei are doing he should still side with Yamato, something he couldn’t even convince Benkei to do. In fact, in Benkei’s route his respect gets to the point where he actually does ask him if he can call him anikinote  instead of just viewing him as such. Though said declaration IS fueled in part by pure self interest.
  • Bishōnen: He has good looks, but his bizarre personality keeps him from being too popular. Well, Yumiko at least seems to want him to come to club because she thinks he's hot.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The brooding boy to Yoshitsune.
  • Calling Your Attacks: He calls his weapon "Bow and Arrows of Sodom" which is probably due to his personality. When he dueled Benkei before coming to Kawakami, his attack name was so absurdly long that she could have easily gotten to him and stopped him from ever using it, but made a point of letting him get the attack off so he couldn't make an excuse afterward. She still beat him to a pulp.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: This allows Yamato to form a close relationship with him since he once had the same personality as him. Yoichi looks up to and respects him as his senior while Yamato often reverts to his old, darker personality to convince him to follow Benkei's or Yoshitsune's orders or to get him to get along with others.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Yamato volunteers to talk Yoichi out of siding with the Kuki rebellion. It works: He assists in taking out both Oomura and Youshi
  • Historical Domain Character: He's a clone of the Japanese samurai Nasu no Yoichi, who served the Minamoto Clan in real life. He was renowned for his archery skills, and his clone carries on this innate skill. Unfortunately, compared to the likes of Yoshitsune or Benkei, Yoichi is a much less celebrated hero and has led to him being somewhat paranoid.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: Some with Yamato, to which he is blind. He just respects Yamato a lot for basically being better at being a chuunibyou and being able to stand up to Benkei.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rude and aloof towards Benkei and Yoshitsune, but he's also seen to be protective of the latter when people might try to take advantage of her and at one point intimidates someone who was badmouthing Benkei into shutting up.
  • Manchild: In the present, his attitude is considered quite immature but mostly just something people put up with. In Stacy's route after a timeskip he's still doing it though, meaning he's acting like a broody fourteen year old when he's in his early twenties and shows no indication of ever stopping. Yamato can't even force himself to play along anymore.
  • Mr. Imagination: He's quite the chuunibyou and likes to think of the world as dark and dramatic. Yamato, who used to pretend the same thing when he was a little kid, is the only one able to actually convince him of anything. Everyone else is just annoyed at having to argue with him constantly.
  • Right Behind Me: Yoichi takes a clump of seaweed, something he’s very unwisely compared Benkei’s hair to in the past, and addresses it as though it were her to prove he’s not scared of her. Benkei just arrived for real.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Yoshitsune and Benkei.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: When he was younger he was a lot more normal and outgoing, but when he overheard some adults discussing how he was 'only' Nasu no Yoichi in comparison to famous heroes like Yoshitsune or Benkei, he was quite hurt and grew a lot more paranoid.

Seiso Hazakura

Voiced by: Ryouko Tanaka

A book-loving girl that gets transferred to 3-S. She is also a clone, but Kuki executives keep her true identity quite secret, even from her. She will not know her true identity until she turns 25, but since she was instructed to study and enjoys it, she assumes she was probably a courtesan or writer contemporary to or slightly preceding the Genji trio.

  • Alternate Character Reading: Inverted. Seiso’s name is written 葉桜 清楚, but can apparently be written with different characters. If written as 霸王西楚 it can still be read as 'Hazakura Seiso' but with the normal reading for Chinese it actually means Overlord of Western Chu, referring to Xiang Yu, or Kouu as he would be called in Japanese.note 
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Though the clones don't have real parents, they were raised by a fairly normal man and woman on an island south of Japan. When Yamato meets them in A-5, they tell embarrassing stories about the clones. Seiso was the last of the clones to stop wetting the bed.
  • Bookworm: She loves hanging out in the library, and is given the title of 'literature girl' by other students. This is done entirely in a positive way, as she quickly becomes one of the most popular girls in the academy.
  • Badass Bookworm: Though she doesn't look like it or act like it, she possesses immense strength. Her signature move is a light shove, which is enough to send someone hurtling across the room.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Seiso lightly shoves people sometimes and sends them flying, completely unaware that she's the one that did it.
  • Expy: While dissimilar in personality, Seiso fills roughly the same position in the story as Tatsuko in the original Majikoi: she's the seemingly harmless girl that turns out to be way out of everyone's league and kicks the crap out of everyone.
    • Her being a kind, friendly and caring girl whose body houses Haou, a brash, arrogant and ungodly powerful fighter is quite similar to Moka Akashiya and her inner self.
  • Foil: Invoked. She was instructed to spend a lot of time studying when growing up in order to balance out her true self, Haou, who was too reckless to study and lacked the patience Seiso has in abundance. The idea was that when Seiso turned 25 Haou could be awakened and would have the greater self control Seiso represents to match her physical power.
  • Friendless Background: Though she's social and popular, she was raised a little separately from the other clones thanks to both being older and not fitting into the whole 'contemporary Japanese heroes' thing. So she's actually pretty lonely.
  • Gender Flip: Like most of the others, she's based on a male historical figure, though they keep it secret from her which one.
  • Historical Domain Character: She's a clone of Xiang Yu, a prominent Chinese military leader and the overlord in the late Qin Dynasty. After the fall of the Qin Dynasty, Xiang Yu proclaimed himself "Overlord of Western Chu" and ruled a vast area of land covering parts of present-day Shanxi, Henan, Hubei, Hunan and Jiangsu, with Pengcheng (present-day Xuzhou, Jiangsu) as his capital. He engaged Liu Bang, the founding emperor of the Han Dynasty, in a long struggle for power, known as the Chu–Han Contention, which concluded with his eventual defeat and suicide at the bank of the Wu River.
  • Historical Hero Upgrade: The way the story tells it, her major failure during life as a Chinese general was just being unable to gather allies and eventually committing suicide after being pressed to ruin. This is rather pointedly ignoring that Xiang Yu, like other Chinese leaders at the time, would conscript the peasants into a massive army, drag them across the country to fight his wars and then make grand gestures like executing two hundred thousand captured enemy soldiers as a tribute to his slain uncle. The same uncle Kyougoku is compared to, no less. Sure hope Miss Marple accounted for that trait, too.
  • I Am Who?: Miss Marple won't tell her her true identity until she's 25 because she feels that Haou will be too wild and uncontrollable to succeed in their mutual goals until then. Worried about it, she asks the Kazama family to investigate, assuming they'll tell her she was a famous writers or some such. The answer is Xiang Yu, overlord of Western Chu about two thousand years ago.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Her looks are clearly good, but the actual informed attractiveness part comes in in reference to the aura she has about her as a gentle book reading girl. Much to Haou's irritation, she isn't nearly as popular as Seiso as a result despite sharing the same body and in some ways being the same person.
  • Nice Girl: Seiso is very kind and gentle, making her extremely popular as a result.
  • Odd Name Out: Unlike the Genji trio, she does not share the name of her historical counterpart though her name does contain a hint.
  • Only Friend: Her only close friendship is with the third year Kyougoku, though in her route she does make friends with Yamato when she asks him to uncover her identity.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: Just like Yoshitsune and Benkei, though you don't get told which hero that is and her personality gives nothing away. It's not impossible to figure out, though, and both Yamato and Tsubame are capable of uncovering her identity based on her name, her abilities, her bike and her hair pin.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: She and Kyougoku are extremely close, but they're more like siblings than lovers.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: In the second release of A she gets her own route.
  • Recognition Failure: In her A-2 route she or rather Haou optionally gets taken to Chinatown by Yamato after they have more time than expected left after recruiting Mouri for their team in the war games. She gets confused at first at her lack of a statue among the other local heroes and when she asks where her statue is the local residents don't even know who she's talking about! Kouu/Xiang Yu? Is that a FF boss or something?
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: She was tasked with studying by Miss Marple and spends her free time reading, leaving her rather ignorant as to what people her own age actually do. She's also lonely because she's a year older than the other clones and wasn't really raised with them, an issue compounded by most people preferring to admire her from a distance rather than talk to her.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Seiso prefers to believe that she's the clone of a courtesan like Sei Shounagon or Murasaki Shikibu and ignores all the hints as to her true identity or even just her massive superstrength. She asks the Kazama Family to investigate her true identity and when they've figured it out they bring her to the rooftop to tell her. She's happily going through a number of famous literary courtesans and writers in her head while the Kazama Family looks increasingly guilty since she is not, in fact, a cultural hero of that sort at all.
  • Shipper on Deck: In her route, depending on the player's choices, Yamato will fall for Haou instead of Seiso. Seiso actually supports Yamato in this and when it becomes obvious that Haou likes him too, Seiso encourages her to open up to him. It gets to the point that, when Haou does confess to Yamato and tries to swap places with Seiso out of sheer embarrassment, Seiso refuses, forcing Haou to go back and face Yamato.
  • Ship Tease: With Kyougoku, her classmate. He was a minor character in the original and is still something of a satellite character, but he helps to humanize Haou, who is still just a person with ordinary human attachments. In A-2, they clarify that the relationship is not romantic in nature.
  • Super Strength: Seiso has massive physical strength that people tend to disbelieve when they first notice it. When Kojuurou tries to reassure her that she's not that strong and lets her get in a free hit, she lightly shoves him so hard the impact of his collision with the wall is so powerful it can be felt throughout the building.


How well does it match the trope?
