Characters from the manga and anime series Nurse Angel Ririka SOS.

Ririka Moriya - Nurse Angel

Voiced by: Kaori Asoh

The main character; a 4th grade student at White Dove Academy. She receives a present on her 10th birthday that transforms her into Nurse Angel, a heroine with the power to fight an invasion by the evil organization Dark Joker. She's plucky, but is she up to the task?

Seiya Uzaki

Voiced by: Akira Ishida

Ririka's next-door neighbor, classmate, and childhood friend. He is a joker and something of an attention seeker, but he is very sincere in his affection for Ririka. He would do anything to help her, no matter how rash.
  • Adaptational Badass: The original manga had him completely normal for most of the story before eventually gaining a boomerang that he is able to use to provide help on a few occasions, whereas the anime that was being produced almost simultaneously had him gain psychic powers from Kanon and directly fight on several occasions, actually saving Ririka from time to time.
  • Afraid of Blood: Despite his aspirations to become a doctor, Seiya all but passes out at the sight of a skinned knee early in the show. As the show progresses he learns not to let it slow him down.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: His Leeroy Jenkins antics are funny, but give him the power to back up his fearlessness and awesomeness will ensue.
  • Class Clown: Of course he makes jokes when the teacher asks questions. He tends to end up in the role of Butt-Monkey in every classroom scene.
  • The Cassandra: when Kanou is revived brainwashed into serving Dark Joker, Seiya is the only one who shows any suspicion, and quickly comes to confirm the truth. However, Ririka refuses to believe him no matter how hard he tries to tell her, choosing instead to believe that Seiya just hates Kanou and is trying to hurt him and keep her from him out of spite.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has Meta Guy tendencies, and as the show progresses he becomes a font of one liners.
  • Declaration of Protection: "I'll protect you, Ririka" is like a mantra for him.
  • Defence Mechanism Superpower: On several occasions Seiya spontaneously uses an Area of Effect energy attack when he is angry or running out of options. It's effective, but it leaves him completely drained.
  • Distressed Dude: Gets tied up fairly regularly.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Wants to be more than Just Friends with Ririka, but Cannot Spit It Out.
  • Dork Knight: A hyperactive, clever, absolutely fearless goofball. Villains actually refer to him as a knight.
  • Emotional Powers: His powers may function entirely on this principle.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Once Seiya joins the team it takes him a while to get the hang of his new powers. This generates some welcome comic relief when Kanou weakens and dies.
  • Hot-Blooded: It's almost like his powers are triggered by yelling. It may just be a coincidence, but he does yell a lot when he uses them.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Seiya mispronounces Herb's name as "Heebu" (the actual Japanese rendition of the word is "haabu".) Seiya gets corrected by his dad, but it doesn't stick.
  • Not Wearing Tights: Once he becomes an Empowered Badass Normal, he throws around energy projectiles and gets into aerial battles wearing jeans and a hoodie.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: His role in the early parts of the story. He has nigh impenetrable Plot Armor.
  • Properly Paranoid: In general, Seiya's pretty inclined to suspicion:
    • He's suspicious of Kanou-senpai from the beginning, but Ririka ignores him. This leads to a Crying Wolf situation later on, when Kanou is suspicious and malicious.
    • When Seiya gets let in on the secret, he almost seems to relish the possibility of danger around every corner.
  • Reckless Sidekick: Seiya - perhaps the awesomest 10 year old boy ever - does not know the meaning of "in over your head" and has a penchant for attacking large monsters armed with conveniently placed mops and brooms.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Hallelujah! After much mucking around, Seiya joins the team! And gets super-powers!
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Sorry to break it to you Seiya, but you're not in a sentai show and you aren't going to get to transform.

Nozomu Kanou - Kanon

Voiced by: Hidehiro Kikuchi

An alien from the planet Queen Earth, in disguise as a transfer student at White Dove Academy. He gives Ririka the Angel Cap as a birthday present, and mentors her in hopes that as Nurse Angel, she will stop Dark Joker and free his home world.

Anna Kazami and Karin Mizuhara

Voiced by Azusa Nakao and Kaoru Suzuki

Ririka's best friends and classmates. They're very supportive, but they aren't in on her secret.

Miyuki Kuwano

Voiced by Emiko Matsuoka

A snobbish and elitist White Dove Academy student who doesn't think that Ririka and Seiya meet the school's standards. She started a fanclub for Kanou and is constantly frustrated that he pays more attention to Ririka than to her.

Princess Helena

Voiced by: Yuri Amano

The (apparently sovereign) princess of Queen Earth; she is suffering from an illness caused by the invasion of her world by Dark Joker, but she struggles to maintain her realm nonetheless. She sent Kanon to Earth to find Nurse Angel.

Princess Mimina

Voiced by: Noriko Namiki

Princess Helena's younger sister; she travels to Earth to help Nurse Angel save her home world. She idolizes Nurse Angel but she treats Ririka with disdain, and she has a crush on Seiya.


Voiced by: Ryo Horikawa

Leader of Dark Joker; he considers goodness to be weakness and has little regard for his underlings. Has a looming, imposing appearance combined with effeminate mannerisms.


Voiced by: Yuriko Fuchizaki

One of the Dark Joker sub-commanders; a swordsman with a blithe attitude who treats the attack on Earth like a game. Over time, he comes to view Nurse Angel as a worthy opponent. When the leader of Dark Joker turns on him, he joins up with Ririka.


Voiced by: Kouji Ishii

One of the Dark Joker sub-commanders; a schemer who uses spies, traps, and deception to get the drop on opponents. He is eager to prove his superiority over his colleague Dewey.
