Main Characters

    Hiroshi Kuzumi 
Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi
  • The Atoner: Became this for Mana out of guilt for sending her home when he wanted to visit his grandparents alone, which caused her accident.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: In episode twelve he's dressed as a girl by Isuzu and Kaname.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Issei questions Hiroshi's sexuality due to him always turning down Isuzu's advances.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Turns out Hiroshi gives off a strong scent that causes the Kamibito residents to give in to their animal instincts. Because his scent is particularly strong, this is what’s causing the new batch of murders.
  • Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality: Hiroshi is extremely uncomfortable with being flirted with, to the point where Issei thinks he's gay because he shies away from Isuzu's advances.
  • Sanity Slippage: In some endings of the VN, Hiroshi gets turned into a Kamibito and goes insane from it. The hallucinations he has of Nemuru eating him when they're locked up together in the anime don't support his sanity either.
  • Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious: He is a Temptation, a special human who emits a scent that causes the Kamibito to succumb to their bestial urges.
  • Taking the Bullet: Does this for Nemuru in the finale of the Visual Novel.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Consistently in the anime, contributing to him being The Scrappy. Let's just say the anime would've been a lot shorter if Hiroshi had done what any sane person would do in the predicaments he finds himself in.

    Mana Kuzumi 
Voiced by: Saki Fujita
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: She used to be this to Hiroshi until after his sending her away led to her accident, and he was reproached with guilt.
  • Demoted to Extra: She plays a much smaller role in the finale of the anime than in the visual novel.
  1. * Nice Hat
  • Precocious Crush: She develops a massive crush on Issei, seeing him as everything her own big brother isn't.
  • Shaming the Mob: In the Visual Novel's finale.
  • Tsundere: She's temperamental and occasionally downright abusive towards her big brother, but cares for him deep down.

    Nemuru Kushinada 
Voiced by: Mariya Ise

    Isuzu Tsumuhana 
Voiced by: Emiri Katou
  • Batman Gambit: She forced herself on Hiroshi in Episode 6 knowing full well Nemuru would show up to stop her, and banked on being able to expose Nemuru's true self to Hiroshi as well as being able to defeat her in a fight.
  • Bokukko: She refers to herself as "boku" to emphasize her tomboyish personality.
  • Break the Cutie: After her brother is killed, her cheerful facade starts to crumble.
  • Driven to Suicide: Her fate in the good end of her and Hiroshi's arc. You read that right—in the good end.
  • Genki Girl: She's constantly happy and cheerful, at least on the surface.
  • Gratuitous English: She is prone to peppering her speech with English in the Visual Novel.
  • Knife Nut: Dual wields a pair of knives when fighting Nemuru in Episode 6.
  • Meido: In episode twelve she wears a maid uniform.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: She gets shot in the leg in episode eleven.
  • Psychotic Smirk: When she hears the bells on Nemuru's scythe in Episode 6, Isuzu flashes a malevolent smile.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When she succumbs to her instincts, her eyes glow red.
  • The Tease: She constantly flirts with Hiroshi, at one point pulling down the front of her swimsuit to expose her cleavage, then teasing that he thought she was going to show him her breasts.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Episode eleven. What’s the best solution when someone with a grudge against the entire village is running loose in the forest with a gun? Go wandering through the forest alone, of course!
  • Yandere: Isuzu becomes increasingly possessive towards Hiroshi over the course of the first half of the anime, coming to a head in Episode 6, where she tries to force herself on Hiroshi and fights Nemuru over him. In the visual novel, it's more prevalent in the bad ends of her and Hiroshi's arc.

    Kaname Asagiri 
Voiced by: Mai Fuchigami
  • Ascended Extra: In the anime, she plays a direct role in the plot, as opposed to playing a more minor role in the visual novel.
  • Demoted to Extra: Until episode eleven, where she basically takes a backseat role.
  • Meido: In episode twelve she dresses up as a maid.
  • Occult Detective: She fancies herself to be one, and manages to uncover a number of Jōga's mysteries through her research — something that gets her into trouble with the authorities.


Supporting Characters

    Issei Tsumuhana 
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto
  • Broken Ace: He's the oldest of the main characters and is admired by everyone.
  • Cute and Psycho: He succumbs to his instincts and attacks Hiroshi, giggling maniacally.
  • Depraved Bisexual: He's had a number of girlfriends, but he displays an increasing amount of lust towards Hiroshi.
  • Forceful Kiss: Attempted several times with Hiroshi, but he pulls it off with his female underclassman.
  • Laughing Mad: His reaction to the execution squad gaining in on him, and the leader of the group stepping forward to kill him in the anime. However, in the VN, he just gives Nemuru one last defying look with his red eyes and lets out a small yelp before he's killed.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes glow red when he succumbs to his instincts.
  • Sanity Slippage: As he succumbs to his instincts, he becomes increasingly erratic and creepy.

    Shunichirou Sakaki 
Voiced by: Koji Yusa
  • Ax-Crazy: At the very least, you’ve got to admit he is somewhat unstable, considering he blows up the entire village—or attempts to, depending on whether the player stops him in time—in most of the visual novel's endings. He definitely counts at the end of the anime, though. That Slasher Smile can't be a good sign...
  • False Friend: He pretends to be a friend to Hiroshi and a number of other characters to facilitate his revenge plot.
  • Fan Nickname: He went by "Pharma Dude" until his name was revealed (or at least made more prominent) in episode seven of the anime
  • Hypocrite: One thing consistent about his character in both the anime and the VN is his tendency to call the Kamibito population and Nemuru "murderers" with genuine disgust and hatred...even after he kills, or causes the deaths of, people whom he used to reach his goals.
  • Meaningful Rename: As part of his revenge gambit, he changed his name to Shunichirou Sakaki from Junichi Mukata.
  • Poor Communication Kills: So very much in in the Visual Novel's bad endings. The entire tragedy could've been averted if he had known what Kaori being taken away to become a priestess actually was rather than assuming she was taking off to be sacrificed.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: He plans to wipe out the Kamibito to avenge his deceased girlfriend, though what exactly pushes him to it differs in the Visual Novel and the anime.

    Kaori Mana 
Voiced by: Yuko Goto
  • Cooldown Hug: To Sakaki at the end of the anime. And then ten seconds later, this is subverted.
  • Death by Adaptation: She dies in the second-to-last episode of the anime.
  • Expy: In-story example: She bears a strong resemblance to Sakaki’s former lover, Mieko.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of the anime.
  • Ill Girl: She suffers from a terminal illness.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: The cough is there to emphasize her illness, but at the end of the anime, she doesn't die from the illness itself; she goes out via Heroic Sacrifice. And at the end of the VN, she doesn't die on-screen, but it's implied she will eventually die from her illness.


How well does it match the trope?
