Characters / Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls

Go To


  • Baleful Polymorph: Kami-sama turns her into a cat to "teach her the value of life" in episode 7. It initially wears off in episode 8, but it comes back the episode after.
  • Catchphrase: "Nyaa desu~"
  • Catgirl
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Her design is clearly meant to invoke moe, but she's one of the most high pitched members of the cast. You can really hear it when she gets emotional.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Specifically Koneko's.

  • Death by Despair: You really don't expect it from a show like this, but still. Raku's love for Hitoshi is so strong that it literally kills her when she's rejected.
  • Gag Boobs: The exact size varies from scene to scene but what does stay consistent is that they're quite large.
  • Hair-Contrast Duo: With Koneko-chan. While Raku is innocent, somewhat dependent on others, and very high pitched, Koneko-chan is more mature, wise, and self sufficient.
  • Ill Girl: After she contracts rabies in Episode 4. She supposedly gets progressively weaker due to the disease, yet she's able to sprint to the forest without much problem.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Despite literally dying of heartbreak, Raku wishes Hitoshi and Bokutachi happiness in their future relationship as she lay dying.
  • The Load: She generally is the person who gets in trouble the most over the course of the series, from her her contracting rabies to her getting possessed by a bakeneko. Played for as much drama as this series can allow in episode 6; she knows she's been bearing on Hitoshi and Koneko with her problems, and fears that they see her as a burden.

  • Love at First Sight: When she first lays eyes on Hitoshi, she can't help but marvel at how "sugoi" he is, complete with Nosebleed.
  • Meaningful Name: Raku... rack. Rack as in, her well, rack.
  • Older Than They Look: She's an adult, not a teenager. She even went to college.
  • Unrequited Love: She maintains a one sided crush on Hitoshi starting from episode 1. His refusal to reciprocate is what causes her to die in the finale.
  • Rasputinian Death: Does she die from contracting rabies and suffering its aftereffects? No. How about when she got possessed by a bakeneko and was made progressively weaker from that? Not that either, despite it being on and off until it's fully exorcised from her body. No, what actually ends up killing her is her "broken kokoro", which only happens when the pain of her unrequited love was too much to keep her from going on.

  • Womanchild: She goes on and on about her crush on Hitoshi, is generally dependent on Koneko and others, and is prone to be extremely emotionally vulnerable for someone who's already in college.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Though it often looks blonde. The finale makes you wonder if it is dyed or not.



  • Abduction Is Love: His kidnapping by Kidnapper-san leaves him with some emotional baggage left over...though not the tragic kind. He winds up having erotic daydreams (to *NSYNC no less) of the guy, and even dates him come the finale.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls the Catgirls "Nekos" regularly.
  • Bi the Way: Constantly comments on the good looks of the girls in the series, ultimately falls in love with and begins dating Kidnapper-kun, a man.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Every time he's shown in Raku-chan's vision, he has these. He also had a lot of this in the early episodes, but it reduced over time.
  • Catchphrase: "Nya, rawr~"
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: If you listen closely, you'll notice that he's actually voiced by a girl, albeit altered to sound more masculine.
  • Designated Love Interest: For Raku.
  • Five Stages of Grief: By the end of the series, he's on Stage 1 and jumping to Stage 4, going by his resigned sigh in the last scene. He seems like he's deluding himself at the vet, saying that the Raku he knows wouldn't just up and die and that she'll be back before he knows it.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Generally serves as the joke man (at least when they're trying to tell jokes), but he ends up making them at inopportune times.
  • Mellow Fellow: He takes most things in stride and is way more laid back than the other protagonists.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Well, if you want to call this fanservice, sure. He gets constant servicey shots in the series, from his bathing suit appearance in episode 6 to losing his swim trunks in episode 8.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Makes a surprisingly emotional goodbye with Raku as she dies in the finale.
    "Nooo, hang in there, baby!"
  • Pretty Boy: He's a bishonen parody.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Averted. He's relatively harmless, and a pretty decent friend.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Kidnapper-kun / Bokutachi

  • Back for the Finale: While he gets various cameos throughout the series after his introduction, he himself doesn't appear in person until the finale.
  • Blinding Bangs: In his first appearance anyway. He has proper eyes in Hitoshi-san's thoughts and is shown to have blue eyes in the finale.
  • Camp Gay: Has a slight lisp, is constantly flirting with Hitoshi, and generally acts very camp.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Like Hitoshi, he's voiced by a girl, albeit altered.
  • No Name Given: For most of the series. In the finale we learn his name is Bokutachi.
  • No Sympathy: He doesn't give one crap that Raku dies. Mostly his screentime after the event is playfully teasing Hitoshi about being the cause of her Death by Despair.
  • Punny Name: His real name is Bokutachi. Boku means I or me, and tachi is used as a slang term for a man that tops in a homosexual relationship.
  • Stalker with a Crush


Raku-chan's College Friends
