Moon Demon Company

    General 
  • Badass Crew: Most of the squads in the Moon Demon Company are quite badass, even more so with their Cursed Gear.
  • Five-Man Band/The Squad: They work in squads of five or more because a smaller team might not survive an encounter with an armed vampire.

Shinoa Squad

    Shinoa Hīragi 

Voiced by: Saori Hayami (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinoa_hragi.png

The main female protagonist of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series and the younger sister of Mahiru Hīragi. She was appointed as Yūichirō Hyakuya's supervisor during his suspension. She is a sergeant of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and the leader of her squad in the Moon Demon Company.


  • A-Cup Angst: Implied. She keeps her chest size a secret, and while she and the bustier Mitsuba were about to change clothes, she deliberately burned off Mitsuba's shirt in the chest area to keep her from looking her way.
  • Action Girl: She is a competent fighter in mid-range combat.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Although she has a crush on Yu, she hides it from him and flirts with Mitsuba way more often.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: She's officially the youngest member of her squad, being 15 years old rather than 16 like the rest.
  • Badass Adorable: Mainly due to her small stature.
  • Black Sheep: Except for Mahiru who genuinely loved her, and maaaaybe Kureto, the Hīragi family weren't the least bit kind to her because she never showed the great potential of her sister. Her ostracization got worse after the incident with Mahiru eight years before.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: As befitting her mischievous nature, it's her favorite expression.
  • Demonic Possession: The First Progenitor which resides in her Cursed Gear ends up possessing her body and starting her transformation into a vampire.
  • Designer Babies: She's one of the artificially inseminated Namanari children of the Hīragi family that were imbued with a curse from before birth.
  • Drama Queen: Can act especially melodramatic at times.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Shinoa's lax personality ends up coming back to bite her leading into the Battle in Nagoya. Her decision to prank Yu by leaving him stranded by himself on the road leads to them all arriving to Guren's battle speech late, showing her squad to look immature and unprofessional in front of the rest of the Moon Demon Company.
  • Experienced Protagonist: She had her demon weapon before the start of the series.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She actually first met Mika eight years ago during the events of the Catastrophe novels.
  • Friendless Background: Guren has stated that before she met her current squad, she never truly cared about anyone. Considering how demons work in this setting, her aloofness towards others may have been a good thing.
  • The Gadfly: Shinoa loves riling up other people, especially Mitsuba. She gets called out on this by Guren. Continuing this behavior for her own amusement will get someone killed.
  • Guinea Pig Family: She was birthed and raised as an experiment since her father had his children imbued with curses to produce Namanari prodigies. Every day, Shinoa had to be injected with needles just to test reactions from the demon inside her, but since the tests showed no results, she was treated as a failure.
  • Hair Intakes: Her hairstyle includes a subtle pair of intakes that look like little cat ears.
  • Height Angst: Making fun of her short height repeatedly is a sore point for her, as poor Yu and Kimizuki find out.
  • Inconvenient Attraction: Shinoa actively tries to not fall in love with Yuu so her heart doesn't open up to vulnerable emotions her demon can take advantage of. In the end, her attraction to Yuu is way too strong for her to resist it and she falls victim to Shikama's possession.
  • Insufferable Genius: She is incredibly skilled and not afraid of showing it.
  • Keigo: In the Japanese version, she talks very politely (although with plenty of snarks) and addresses everyone else with "-san" or last name + rank. (The only exception is Mitsuba whom she calls "Micchan".)
  • The Lancer: She acts as Yuu's most direct foil and is the one who most often back him up in battle.
  • The Leader: She's the leader of her squad made up of Yu, Mitsuba, Kimizuki, Yoichi and herself.
  • Little Miss Badass: Shinoa is only 150 cm (4'11") tall, but she is more than capable of kicking ass.
  • Little Miss Snarker: She's short and gets enjoyment out of sarcasm and mockery, usually at the expense of Yu or Guren.
  • Love Is a Weakness: The only reason why Shinoa isn't affected by the desire demons feed on and hasn't been taken over by her inner demon is her lack of emotional attachment to anyone. Now that she's allowing herself to care for her new friends and more importantly, falling in love with Yuu, the wall in her heart is growing weaker and she's becoming more vulnerable to a demon's corruption. Ultimately, it is her love for Yuu what gives Shikama the perfect chance to possess her.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Mahiru says that her falling in love will trigger her corruption.
  • The Napoleon: She's one the shortest members of Moon Demon Company and making fun of her height is not a smart idea. Yu and Kimizuki learned this the hard way.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Compared to her genius sister Mahiru.
  • Perpetual Smiler: She's hardly ever seen without a smile on her face.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Being a member of the Hīragi family, Shinoa can get away with breaking the rules.
  • Ship Tease: She's been getting a lot with Yu. By chapter 20, she has developed a crush on him. Unfortunately for her, if she continues to desire Yu and wind up loving him, she might end up possessed by her inner demon just like her sister Mahiru.
  • Significant Birth Date: The 108 Fanbook reveals that Shinoa was born on December 25th. And on her seventh birthday, the apocalypse occurred.
  • Sinister Scythe: Her Cursed Gear takes the form of a black scythe.
  • Split Personality: It turns out that just like her older sister, Shinoa is a Namanari: a human halfway to becoming a demon, with two personalities, but her demon half isn't fully awake yet.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her nonchalant smiles and teasing attitude are her way of masking her emotions and coping with a cold family environment.
  • Successful Sibling Syndrome: Shinoa felt she was a disappointing failure next to her older sister Mahiru who was praised as a genius by everyone.
  • Super Senses: Her Cursed Gear gives her this ability.
  • Supporting Leader: She's The Leader of the Shinoa Squad, but Yuu is The Protagonist and The Hero.
  • The Un-Favourite: When compared to her older sister Mahiru, who was a prodigy and the next successor to the Hīragi family, Shinoa was never acknowledged by her father.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: If Yuu is in danger, Shinoa will step out to defend him. Unfortunately, Shikama exploits by invading Yuu's mind and attacking him so Shinoa comes to protect Yuu. This gives Shikama the perfect opportunity to finally take control over Shinoa's body completely.
  • What Is This Feeling?: Shinoa is somewhat emotionally stunted, so when she begins genuinely feeling care and affection for others (specifically Yu) it throws her for a loop. With the reveal of her origins and with what happened to her sister in the Catastrophe novels, this could be a bad thing in the long run.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has ashen (blueish-gray) hair that appears more lavender in the anime, similar to her father and her sister.

    Yoichi Saotome 

Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese), Chris Burnett (English)

One of the main characters of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series. He is a member of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army as well as Shinoa Hīragi's squad in the Moon Demon Company.


  • All-Loving Hero: Befriends Gekkōin, a Black Demon Series Cursed Gear, which was last seen telling him that it hated love and affection and possessing him so that it could kill everyone, to the point that it willingly yields its power to him after he spends time talking to it every night. His kindness and emotional strength make him the most psychically resilient member of the squad.
  • Ambiguously Gay: At one point in the manga, Shinoa jokes that Kimizuki "swings that way" to the rest of the squad. Yoichi reacts with, "He does?!" while blushing.

  • The Chick: More so than the actual girls in the unit.
  • Cowardly Lion: He shows bravery and skill despite being rather meek compare to Yu or Kimizuki. After getting his Demon Weapon, he's a lot more confident.

One of the main characters of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series. He is member of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and Shinoa Hīragi's squad in the Moon Demon Company.


  • Big Brother Instinct: He is motivated largely by his desire to protect his little sister Mirai, who contracted the virus. In Chapter 21, Kiseki-O, his demon, specifically remarks that he's willing to betray Shinoa's squad for the sake of Mirai. Furthermore, in Chapter 43, Kimizuki himself admits to his squadmates and Narumi that he'd do anything to save his sister from being experimented on by the Japanese Imperial Demon Army, including betraying the rest of his squad.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Most often, occasionally towards his team, namely Yu.
  • Dual Wielding: His Cursed Gear is a pair of connected swords.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He tries to stay cool, but Yu has a way of ticking him off.
  • Hot-Blooded: Temperamental and occasionally brash.
  • Last-Name Basis: He's frequently addressed by his last name.
    • Shihō is usually a girl's name so it might be better for him to just be referred to by his last name.
  • Living MacGuffin: Both the Japanese Imperial Army and the vampires are out to capture him since he's one of the hosts of the Seraph of the End.
  • Megane: He's stoic, aloof and very intelligent who was the highest of his class.

    Mitsuba Sangū 

Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi (Japanese), Alex Moore (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsuba_sang.png

One of the main characters and a concurrent heroine of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series. She is a special duty second lieutenant of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and a member of Shinoa Hīragi's squad in the Moon Demon Company.


  • Adaptational Curves: Inverted. In the manga, she is buxom giving her a more mature look, but in the anime, her hair is shortened and her breasts are smaller to make her look more cute and girlish.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her Cursed Gear is a giant battle-axe.
  • Action Girl: Joined the Vampire Experimentation Unit at 13, and is just as skilled as Shinoa.
  • Badass Adorable: She's pretty cute for a young girl, and is capable of kicking some ass.
  • The Big Girl: She's the squad member with the hottest temper and the largest weapon.
  • Girlish Pigtails: As the resident Tsundere, she has her hair tied up in twin-tails.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Not shown in the series itself, but supplementary materials reveal she often frets about not living up to high standards set by her older sister Aoi.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Being the resident tsundere, she even has a shorter fuse than Yuu.
  • Honor Before Reason: Subverted. She makes an active attempt to not be this, having suffered for it before. She and Yuu, who is this, clash because of it.
  • Lethal Chef: Nearly burnt down Shinoa's room in her attempt to help cook breakfast.
  • Modesty Shorts: Rarely visible in the anime but in the manga whenever she sits in a comprising position or the panel has an odd angle, her biker shorts can be seen.
  • My Greatest Failure: Mitsuba acted out of formation in an attempt to save her teammate, resulting in her squad leader dying to protect her. It's why she's very fussy on people staying in formation now.
  • Rescue Romance: She starts falling for Yuu after he saves her from being killed by some vampires.
  • She's Got Legs: Shows them off all the time since she's seen mostly wearing her uniform skirt or short-shorts when in civilian clothing.
  • Teen Genius: It's stated that she joined the army at only thirteen years old.
  • Tsundere: A textbook example of a Harsh type. Mitsuba is irritable, unfriendly and somewhat bossy, yet blushes way too easily around Yuu.
  • The Worf Effect: She's a relatively high ranking military officer with years of experience, however, she often gets one-shotted by noble vampires to emphasize their strength; as shown by easily getting blasted by Mika while he's trying to get to Yuu and in Chapter 45 is knocked out in one hit by Crowley.

Guren Squad (WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD)

    General 
  • Back from the Dead: In chapter 47, it is revealed that all the members of the squad aside from Guren died 8 years ago, just before the Apocalypse happened, but were revived by Guren using the Seraph of the End power at the cost of 90% of humanity.
  • Death Amnesia: None of Guren's teammates have any recollection of their deaths and resurrections.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: The prequel series shows how Guren and his squad became True Companions as they got involved in the conflict between the Hīragi family and the Hyakuya, making them overcome life-or-death situations together.
  • Living on Borrowed Time: As per the repercussions of being Back from the Dead, all of Guren's teammates can only be revived for ten years, having only two left, and if they know the truth, they will crumble to dust.

    Guren Ichinose 

Voiced by: Yūichi Nakamura (Japanese), Dave Trosko (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guren_ichinose.png

The main protagonist of the prequel stories Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose: Catastrophe at Sixteen and Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose: Resurrection at Nineteen light novel series. Furthermore, he is an important character who plays a crucial role within the sequel story Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga series that takes place eight years later.

Guren is a Lieutenant Colonel of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and the leader of the Vampire Extermination Unit's Moon Demon Company. He is also the squad leader of the Guren Squad.


  • Ambiguously Bi: It's clear that Mahiru is the only one for him, but at the present, he dislikes her demon side (who is now the only thing left of her after the demon side consumed Mahiru’s original personality), and doesn’t seem to mind Shinya flirting with him.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's a lieutenant colonel and, as the trope says, is always kicking someone's ass.
  • Badass Bookworm: He's very intelligent as well as skilled in battle.
  • The Bait: Kureto always uses Guren as a decoy in his grand strategies, which often puts him in extreme danger.
  • Beneath the Mask: His polite speech pattern and unassuming behavior back in high school were all part of his loser wimp act, given that his true personality is someone who swears like a sailor and is rather disrespectful.
  • Bridal Carry: Chapter 54 shows in a flashback that he carried the then dead Shinya this way, after he died in his arms during the finale of ''Catastrophe''.
  • Broken Ace: He's grown to be very skilled in various aspects of combat, but his mental state isn't as flawless as his talents in battle.
  • Bully Magnet: The amount of abuse he endured in his time at First Shibuya High is astonishing.
  • Byronic Hero: Despite his nonchalant and grumpy attitude and his prodigious combat skills, he's just a broken man who is burned by many sins and failures.
  • Chick Magnet: Girls are drawn to him like flies to tsundere honey.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Guren and Mahiru fell in love with each other when they were five years old. After 10 years of separation, their feelings didn't change, but they couldn't become a couple because of Mahiru's family and transformation into a demon.
  • Colonel Badass: He is a Lieutenant Colonel in the JIDA and he wields a Black Demon Series Cursed Gear. He was shown to be able to go toe-to-toe with Mikaela (who himself is a formidable opponent).
  • Combat Pragmatist: Even though he is strong, he is well aware of the fact that most vampire nobles are stronger and will not hesitate to use dirty tricks in battle.
  • Cool Loser: Starts this way in the Catastrophe light novels, by his own design.
  • Dark Secret: He is technically the cause of the apocalypse, as he resurrected Shinya and his squad and was given divine punishment. To add to this, he cannot tell them that he did this, or they will crumble to dust; it also doesn't help that they're Living on Borrowed Time and only have two years left to live.
  • Demonic Possession: Although he thinks he has a handle on it, Mahiru has possessed him several times in the past. In fact, she's been using his body to contact Ferid for her own agenda.
  • Determinator
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Girls are attracted to Guren like bees to honey and Shinya has also been known to tease and flirt with him.
  • Expy: A Tall, Dark, and Handsome man, sometimes rather snarky with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, is somewhat a Parental Substitute to the protagonist even though he isn't good at showing it, has a Dark and Troubled Past and hides it behind a nonchalant facade. Guren sure is quite similar to Fullmetal Alchemist's Roy Mustang.
  • A Father to His Men: To say that he cares about his followers and comrades is an understatement. He is willing to cause an apocalypse for the sake of his fallen friends by using the Seraph of the End to revive them.
  • Genre Savvy: He insists on Yu making friends. It works. However, the same cannot be said to his idea of teaching Shinoa the same thing when it comes to leading her comrades as while logically, this is a good thing since it made her a better leader to her squad, sooner or later, thanks to her origins, having her grow more and more attached to her friends could potentially endanger her thanks to the demon inside of her. Combined with Mahiru's influence over Guren and her excitement at seeing Shinoa's progress...
  • Good Is Not Nice: Even though he's on the main heroes' side, he can be especially rude.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He has no patience for Yu's stupidity, although in truth, he actually likes Yu.
  • Heartbroken Badass: He can fight some of the strongest vampires in the series, but he still regrets not being able to save his childhood crush from having her personality corrupted by a demon.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Just like Yu, his Cursed Gear is a katana.
  • Hypocrite: He accuses Krul of betraying her kind when he was responsible for causing the virus that killed nearly all of humanity and forced the vampires to take over, even if it was by accident.
  • In Harm's Way: Pretty much all the time.
  • It's All My Fault: He takes responsibility for any failures or deaths of the people under his command.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's cold and rude to even those who are friendly with him, but he won't hesitate to save their lives when they're in danger. This is the reason why his friends stick with him no matter what.
  • Knight in Sour Armor
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: This is much more emphasized in the Catastrophe light novels, where everyone practiced sorcery and martial arts at First Shibuya High.
  • The Leader: He leads Guren Squad and all the members are loyal to him.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Guren's father was much more compliant and apologetic toward Hīragi-dominated society. Guren had no intention of doing the same and from an early age planned on overthrowing the Hīragis.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Shinya's life was empty and miserable ever since his parents sold him as a potential fiancé for Mahiru. He only lived with the goal of surviving each day by doing what the Hīragi family wanted of him, until he met Guren who became the only person who made him feel true joy.
  • Loser Protagonist: In the prequel series, Guren is treated like human garbage by everyone at the First Shibuya High School because the Ichinose family is a very low branch of the Order of the Imperial Demons. The Hīragi family oppressed the Ichinose because of a feud centuries ago and promoted other branch families to ostracize the Ichinose and their followers.
  • Magnetic Hero: Originally, Guren had the intention of overthrowing the Hīragi family on his own without involving anyone. However, he ended up attracting a group of True Companions that became his squad. Guren wasn't happy about having teammates that could get hurt at first, but he still cares about them.
  • Married to the Job: As the current head of the Order of the Imperial Moon and the Ichinose clan, it shouldn't be a surprise that he doesn't have much space for a personal life.
  • The Men First: His general attitude in battle. This makes sense because of the nature of most of his missions: he's usually there to cause a commotion and distract the vampires long enough for the main army to act.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • My Greatest Failure:
    • He failed to save his childhood crush Mahiru from transforming into a demon and he laments it to this day.
    • Letting his squad die hit him hard. To make it way worse, 90% of humanity died because Guren wished to bring his squad back to life.
  • Not So Above It All: Has a habit of resorting to loud arguing and violence when either Yu or Shinoa get on his nerves.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He pretended to be incompetent in high school because he didn't want to let the Hīragis know his true power. The illusion didn't last long.
  • Papa Wolf: He sees his squad members and comrades as part of his family. Any attempts to harm them will result in a very angry backlash from him.
  • Parental Hypocrisy: Guren's always telling Yu to get along better with his friends when he himself will sooner die than admit out loud that he cares about his friends.
    • He also tells him to respect his superiors when he himself is rather well known for being disrespectful, to the point that Shinya has to stay back at meetings to smooth out any ruffled feathers.
  • Parental Substitute: To Yūichirō. He was the one who take care of and train him after rescuing him from Sanguinem.
  • Pet the Dog: Literally patting Yu on the head in some rare So Proud of You moments.
  • The Power of Friendship: Highly values this and encourages Yu to open up his feelings and make friends.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He has never been with anyone besides Mahiru, and on his page in the guidebook, the answer to the question of what he looks for in the opposite sex is simply "Mahiru Hiragi."
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: And boy does he.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: The reason for his abuse from the Hiragi family and other clans is because over 500 years ago, the Ichinose clan deserted from the Order of the Imperial Demons/Hiragi clan and formed the Order of the Imperial Moon. Thus, the two families' relationships have been strained ever since.
  • So Proud of You: He acts like a proud father whenever Yu talks about the importance of friends and family like Guren taught him.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Despite his bluster, Guren is still grieving over Mahiru.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: In Chapter 38, he is revealed to be a Namanari; a human halfway becoming a demon, with two personalities. Other than his normal personality, Guren also possess a perfectionist and extremely ruthless personality that is implied to surface due to his bond with his Cursed Gear's Demon (Mahiru).
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Mahiru. Guren's family was oppressed by Mahiru's family because of a feud from the past, so Guren and Mahiru were forbidden from even seeing each other for ten years. Then Mahiru's longing for Guren caused her to be corrupted by her inner demon and now they can only be together due to Mahiru being sealed inside Guren's sword.
  • Supporting Leader: He has a higher authority than anyone in Yuu's group and acts as their mentor, but the protagonist is still Yuu.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's pretty tall, good-looking and is surely very dark.
  • Team Dad: He plays the part of a somewhat gruff, but caring father figure to Yuu and his group. Especially important because so many of the characters are orphans or have other issues.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: It seems, at least relative to his 16 year old self.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: His favorite food is curry. In the prequel, he asks Sayuri to make curry for dinner every day.
  • Trauma Conga Line: His teen years is basically one horrible event after another.
  • Tsundere: Particularly in the prequel, Guren is aloof and rude to his teammates, but he's only trying to keep his distance so they will be exposed to as little danger as possible.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In chapter 47, it's revealed that he's partly responsible for the apocalypse that killed 90% of the human population. His forbidden act of using the Seraph of the End power to resurrect his dead friends caused humanity to receive divine punishment from the Heaven.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Shinya.
  • Willfully Weak: At the start of the prequel, Guren pretends to be the weakling the "rat" of the Ichinose successor is expected to be so the Hīragi family don't discover his true potential and take precaution against his planned rebellion. He took attacks he could have easily dodged on purpose so no one would get suspicious of his hidden power. The Hīragi family had something of a history of hazing those of the Ichinose and Guren didn't want to show the Hīragi anything about his family's abilities so he decided to quietly endure despite being stronger than his tormentors.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: He tried to keep his abilities hidden while under the watch of the Hīragis.
  • The Worf Effect: Guren gets beat up the most by far out of the recurring characters, even though he is one of the strongest human fighters.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seraph_of_the_end___norito_goshi_anime.png
A colonel of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and a member of Guren's squad in the Moon Demon Company. He is a member of the Goshi family, one of three prodigious clans serving the Hīragi Family.

He is a main character in the Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose: Catastrophe at Sixteen light novel series.


  • Always Someone Better: In the Catastrophe light novels, it's revealed that his younger brother was much more talented and hailed as the next head of the Goshi family, which gave Norito an inferiority complex.
  • Badass Cape: He wears a cape over his JIDA uniform.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Has expressed jealousy at the attention Guren and Shinya get.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He often makes perverted jokes and loves cute girls. It goes far enough so that in the guidebook the only thing stated under his likes is "cute girls," and what he looks for in the opposite sex is said to be "every cute girl." In spite of this, he's always respectful.
  • Fool for Love: He says he's this word for word at one point in the light novels.
  • Fun Personified: He'll stop to look at porn mags before an important battle.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His Cursed Gear is a Japanese smoking pipe which casts illusions.
  • Last-Name Basis: He is addressed by his last name.
  • Master of Illusion: His Cursed Gear lets him cast illusions which are powerful enough to even affect the mind of the Vampire Progenitors.
  • Non-Action Guy: He excels more in illusionary techniques rather than physical attacks. Doesn't mean that he is less useful than the rest of his squad (heck, his illusions could even affect the mind of the Progenitors).

A colonel of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and a member of Guren's squad in the Moon Demon Company. She is also the daughter of the prestigious Jūjō family.

She is a main character in the Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose: Catastrophe at Sixteen light novel series.


  • Action Girl: Quite required as a member of the prestigious Jūjō family. It truly shows during her match with Shigure, and when fighting with vampires.
  • Compassionate Critic
  • Family Honor: Mito is very proud of her family, which is known for its physical strength. Insulting her family is a good way to piss her off.
  • Fiery Redhead: She has the red hair her family is known for and the personality of a hotheaded Tsundere.
  • Girlish Pigtails: When she was a teenager, she wore in twin-tails that made her look even more like the Tsundere stereotype she represents.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Especially towards Guren.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She has some feelings for Guren, but he won't ever consider anyone but Mahiru as a lover.
  • Innocent Bigot: In the prequel light novels, she acts condescending toward Guren and the Ichinose clan because the Hīragi clan promotes mistreatment towards their hated branch family.
  • Lady of War
  • Magic Enhancement: She excels in spellcast techniques that enhance her physical ability.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Mito hails from the Jūjō clan, which is known for physical strength. Because her body is slight, she compensates with magic.
  • Power Fist: Her Cursed Gear Kagutsuchi takes the form of two black gauntlets with glowing green orbs in the middle of each. The power that is released when she punches is enough to hurt and/or kill a common vampire.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her ponytail is almost as long as her body.
  • Rebellious Princess: The princess of the Jūjō family with a fiery attitude.
  • Rescue Romance: She developed a crush on Guren after he saved her life during the attack of the Hyakuya Sect at their high school.
  • Rightly Self-Righteous: She comes off as haughty and arrogant, but she lives by her own beliefs.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She wears a ponytail as an adult.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She wears trousers normally seen on the male uniform and is more physical in combat than some other girls in the army. However, in the fanbook, one of her likes are things currently popular with girls.
  • Tsundere: She's very short-tempered and abrasive, especially when it comes to interactions with Guren. However, in the guidebook, it's stated that Guren is what she looks for in the opposite sex.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aiko_aihara_anime_kindlephoto_240728900_kindlephoto_242016567.png

A sergeant of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. She was the leader of a fifteen-man squad in the Moon Demon Company during the conflict in Nagoya.


  • Action Girl: Her squad manages to kill their assigned vampire noble, and even when two vampire helicopters show up unexpectedly, she takes it upon herself to attack them lest they wipe out Guren's remaining troops.
  • Broken Bird: Due to the guilt of losing subordinates in the Nagoya mission.
  • Energy Bow: Similar to Yoichi's but from a lower ranked demon series.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She goes down fighting, though mostly as a facade so Mika can convincingly kill her without arousing the other vampire's suspicions if they find out she lied about where the remaining human soldiers were.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Even though she's scared and helpless, she sacrifices herself to feed red herrings to the vampires in an attempt to keep her comrades safe.
  • Killed to Uphold the Masquerade: A slight variation of this takes place. Mika intended to let her live, but in the end is forced to kill her so her lie about where Yu and the others were at doesn't arouse suspicion from the other vampires after she secretly tells him where he was. Mika then wonders if she did this to protect Yu, or because she was just using him like Guren and the higher ups in the human military.
  • Mercy Kill: Asks this of Mika.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Like Shigure and Sayuri, she wears the standard military skirt with tights as part of her uniform.
  • Undying Loyalty: When Mika asks her about Yu's whereabouts, she quietly tells him where he is, but lies to the other vampires about the humans attacking another vampire in a different location. Mika then wonders if she was doing this trope, or if she was just using him too.
