Characters / Real Account

Go To

Real Account is split into 2 parts. Part 1 is serialized in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, focusing on Ataru. While Part 2 is serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine, focusing on Yuuma. The characters tend to be a combination of introverts or extroverts mixed with an unhealthy dose of sadist, masochist or a combination of the two, with a few expections and a few seemingly Split Personalities.

Beware of ummarked spoilers!

    The First Group 

Ataru Kashiwagi

The character one first follow. He's idealistic.
  • The Promise: With Kanda, after he willingly had to kill her, by promising that he will kill people who had the same syndrome with her. For example, Yuuma
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to the real Ataru's manly man.
  • Stepford Smiler: Of the depressed variety.
  • Tears of Remorse: Ataru cries a lot, justified considering the circumstances.
  • The Bus Came Back: Ataru comes back in Part 2 to greet Yuuma when he revisit their old house and then he tries to kill Yuuma.
  • The Unfavorite: His family always favoured the real Ataru over him, and when "Yuuma's" funeral was held, nobody cried. Even though this Yuri cries when he's taken to the world of Real Account, crushing him even further but not even mentioning "losing Yuuma" (mostly because that's spoilers). This is because she knows that he is the real Yuuma, and she didn't cry at the funeral to be strong for his sake.
  • Used to Be More Social: He used to be very popular. Actually, the popular one was the real Ataru while this one, the real Yuuma was really shy. But the real Yuuma was seemingly really introverted wanted to be popular and wanted to be loved more by his family but didn't know how to.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Though isn't above making sacrifices.

Ayame Kamijou

Ayame is a young girl who was very dependent on her friends and her "loving" big brother. But one day her friends betrayed her. Because of this she became a very aggressive tsundere in hope of keeping people away to never need to be hurt again. She and Yuuma become important to each other after they quickly follows each other after her big brother and his girlfriend unfollows them and they need each other to survive.

  • Attention Whore: Ayame was this at school as a part of her I Just Want to Have Friends personality. Even though that did, she got tired from hanging out with the other girls so much. So one day she read a message they sent, but fell asleep when replying, and forgot it. The next morning had the girls placed funeral flowers at her desk and mocked her saying 'you didn't reply so we thought you were dead', this breaks her and she locks herself inside her room.
  • Big Brother Worship: She's way too trusting of her brother, who manipulates her and abuses her for his own gain.

  • Tsundere

Mizuki Kurashina

A scary guy who thinks Yuuma seems empty so he follows him around in hope of breaking him.

  • Nightmare Fetishist: Is despairsexual.
  • Oedipus Complex: Such a weird one even Freud would get confused. So he falls for Yuuma after he scolds him, so Yuuma became his maternal figure of sorts.
  • Perverted Drooling
  • Prefers Raw Meat: He carves on raw meat.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: His way of breaking people aren't really different from girl bullies do it, by taking their phones and showing their secrets without remorse.
  • Sadist: and how!

  • Start of Darkness: he was a timid kid who loved his mangaka mother a lot. One day he finds her after she hung herself. He wants to join her but finds a book she drew where she tells that god doesn't want him to, so he keeps on living, somehow, looking at pictures of despaired people.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Grows to be really fond of Yuuma after he Mind Rapes and beats him up, to the point he follows him everywhere, licks photos of him, and is all around very creepy.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Raw meat.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Briefly, after Yuuma reveals the true meaning of his mother's novel and deleted all his despair photos.
  • Yandere: Becomes this for Yuuma, but is more submissive yet still somehow grosser than Yuno, because she didn't drool over photos of Yukiteru when other people or he was nearby. And she wanted to protect "her" Yukki rather than Mizuki here who wants to break Yuuma.
