A young woman who has been working at the live house Supernova for a while, and also the leader of First Astronomical Velocity. Suzu enjoys teasing others and is quite witty and manipulative; but while she may seem unreliable, she can be extremely serious when the situation calls for it, and she's an extraordinary leader. Quick to anger and quick to cool down, she's the main bassist and provides backing vocals.

Fuuri Watanuki

Voiced by: Mami Ozaki (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
Hometown: Takamatsu, Kagawa
Birthday: June 13 (Gemini)
Blood Type: Secret
Hobbies: Eating
Special skills: Hitting things

A girl of mysterious origins with an insatiable appetite in charge of playing the drums. Fuuri is kind to a fault, a bit of a crybaby, and has the tendency to stick her nose where it doesn’t belong. Friendly, easygoing and the mood setter of the band, Fuuri was recruited into F.A.V by Suzu, after she saved her from the local yakuza with one of her trademark dropkicks. While she may seem like a simple girl, she hides many secrets under her calm exterior.

  • All Drummers Are Animals: Literally.
  • Animal Motifs: Tanuki. Since she actually is one.
  • Arranged Marriage: Since she was little, to a tanuki called Tashiro. She ended things after she came to the human world in search for her childhood crush, however.
  • Big Eater: Ridiculously so, she can finish several plates of food in a matter of seconds.
  • Catchphrase: Ponpoko and Pon, which are variations of the onomatopoeia for hitting something.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kanta.
  • Constantly Curious
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A tanuki who came to the human world to find her childhood friend and first love, Kanta. She joined F.A.V with the plan that, if she became famous, he would hear about her and look for her. She finds out he's been dead for a while after a year of searching and a total of ten years of wanting to see him.
  • Does Not Like Konnyaku: It's actually a tanuki thing. Tanuki-jiru, a miso soup dish, uses konnyaku as a replacement for tanuki meat. She says eating konnyaku is like eating a comrade.
  • Genius Ditz: Never got any sort of training on percussion instruments before joining the band. She's always been good at hitting things, apparently.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Her fate in the true ending of Axanael. She sees Kanta again, but he didn't revive. Instead of going back to her home village, she decided to stay in the world of humans with her friends, and to play the drums for his sake, and for the sake of their fans, in hopes of someday touching people's hearts.
  • Messy Hair
  • Master of Disguise: With her shape shifting powers, she can copy anyone's appearance. As long as she has seen them, she can do it.
  • Meaningful Name: Fuuri is a type of tanuki. Her surname is pretty self explanatory.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Secret Keeper: Her past, her true appearance, and her motivations for wanting to become famous.
  • Shapeshifting: Humans, animals, objects, it doesn't look like there’s much limit for a tanuki's shapeshifting powers.
  • She's Got Legs
  • Tanuki: Her true form is that of a cute, small tanuki. Comes with most of the fantasy tropes included.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Meat buns.
  • Transformation Trinket: A leaf with a polka dot design. It can also be used for healing wounds, apparently.

    Supporting Characters 

Manager Kitamura

Voiced by: Ryota Takeuchi (Japanese), David Wald (English)

Sonico's talent manager.
  • Berserk Button: Attempting to make use of Sonico in a sexual manner (overly-risque bathing suit, being fondled by a tentacle kaijin).
  • Never Live It Down: In-universe example. In episode 3, Kitamura, while drunk, arranges for Sonico to make a guest appearance in a tv show. He ends up accidentally upstaging the heroes of the show, and the director throws in his unscripted rescue. He's later offered a role in the show, which he understandably turns down.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Kitamura accidentally upstages the heroes of the tv show Sonico was guest starring in during episode 3. They hilariously keep his action in the show, crediting him as a guest hero.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite the scary mask he wears all the time, he does try to look out for Sonico, and attempts to prevent unscrupulous people from taking advantage of her.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: In episode 3, when he "saves" Sonico from a squid monster instead of letting the heroes of the show do it. The director of the show liked it enough and decided to Throw It In! as a result.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: His Hannya mask and 'flaming' hair. Gets averted in episode 11, when he's watching over Sonico at the shopping district. Several tourists spot him, surround him, and take lots of pictures due to his unusual mask and hair.
