New York Combat Revue
Organized in 1928 by Michael Sunnyside, the New York Combat Revue is charged with the protection of New York City from demonic threats. During peace times, the Revue functions as a Broadway musical troupe operating out of the Little Lip Theater.

Ratchet Altair originally led the main combat squad of the Revue, the Star Division, and fought alongside Cheiron Archer and Subaru Kujo. In the early spring, Sunnyside requested the help of the Imperial Combat Revue Commander Ichiro Ogami, to aid the fledgling organization. Instead, Ogami sent his nephew, Lieutenant Shinjiro Taiga, to lead the group. When Ratchet became unable to fight due to her dwindling spiritual energy levels rendering her STAR inoperable, she had Shinjiro assume leadership of the Star Division in her place while she stepped down to assume an advisory position. The Revue would later be joined by Rosarita "Rosita" Aries, Diana Caprice, and Gemini Sunrise (who was originally hired at the Little Lip Theater as a janitor) as they contended with the growing threat of a group of demons seeking to resurrect their master, Oda Nobunaga, then later, Tutenkhamun. Shinjiro would continue to lead the Star Division after Ratchet departed for Europe to found a new Combat Revue in Germany.


The New York Combat Revue would later disappear at the end of the Great Demon War of 1930.


    Michael Sunnyside 

Commander Michael Sunnyside
Voiced by: Naoya Uchida (Japanese), Dave Wittenberg (English)

The commander of the New York Combat Revue and the owner of the Little Lip Theater. He welcomes Shinjiro in New York when they first meet. Michael is always seen (officially in public) with Xingshi Wong at his side. His niece is Diana Caprice.

  • Blatant Lies: Ratchet calls him out when he says everyone in the force calls him "Sunny".
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Rich Idiot with No Day Job aside, he knows what he's doing.
  • The Captain: He is in charge of the New York Combat Revue.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: He's not shy to using Japanese phrases to help Shinjiro feel at home.
    • Or just as likely, because he's more than a little obsessed with Japanese culture himself.
  • Kick the Dog: Seemingly this when he tells Shinjiro that he needs to sacrifice one of the girls. This turns to be false since Michael was just testing Shinjiro. For that, you can put a sock in him.

Other Personnel

    Plum Spaniel (Cherry Cocker) 

Plum Spaniel (Cherry Cocker)
Voiced by: Kaori Aso (Japanese), Jessica Straus (English)

A waitress for the Little Lip Theater, Plum/Cherry is usually seen rollerskating around to deliver food and drinks to theater guests. In reality, Plum/Cherry is assigned to work at the Rainbow Division whenever the Ahab is launched.

Plum/Cherry enjoys teasing Anri, finding her Tsundere moments to be very cute.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: None of that with her. She's making it a goal to find someone to settle down with after she's done with Rainbow Division duties.
  • Bridge Bunnies: Part of her Mission Control role.
  • Cool Big Sis: She acts like towards Gemini when she first arrived in New York before and after she was recruited to join the Star Division.
  • Damsel in Distress: Gets to be one after she and Anri were turned to stone by Tsugarubi.
  • Dub Name Change: Possibly to make a very strange name sound sensible in English... and to add a naughty pun.
  • Dumb Blonde: Seriously averted with her.
  • The Gadfly: Enjoys teasing Anri, all the way to the New York NY OVA.
  • Gag Boobs: In fact, taking a picture focusing on them earns some affection from her!
  • The Glomp: Does this to Anri in the New York NY OVA.
  • Meaningful Name: Her first name is named after a fruit (Plum and Cherry) and her last name is based off a dog species (in this case, the American Cocker Spaniel).
  • Mission Control: Works alongside Anri in the Rainbow Division.
  • Nice Girl: Despite being flirty with Shinjiro, Plum/Cherry is really a nice girl once you get to know her.
  • Rollerblade Good/Travel Cool: Does this as part of her job as a waitress at the Little Lip Theater.
  • She's Got Legs: Her legs get shown quite a lot due to her skirt.
  • Those Two Girls: She's seen together with Anri most of the time when she's not on duty at the theater.

    Anri Yoshino 

Anri Yoshino
Voiced by: Yoko Honna (Japanese), Cristina Valenzuela (English)

The vendor at the gift shop inside Little Lip Theater, selling various souvenirs to guests coming and going to and from the theater. She also creates all of the stage costumes for the Star Division whenever they put up a play in the Little Lip Theater. In reality, Anri's assigned to work at the Rainbow Division whenever the Ahab is launched.

In V, Anri sells bromides to Shinjiro. She's also on the receiving end of Plum/Cherry's teasing to no end.

    Xingshi Wong 

Xingshi Wong

Voiced by: Tetsuo Goto (Japanese), Doug Stone (English)

An old Chinese man who's employed as Sunnyside's personal assistant. He's also the New York Combat Revue's head mechanic.

  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Always comes in from nowhere with a polite greeting on his face.
