Main Characters


     Mitsumune (光宗)
Voiced by: Kōdai Sakai

The main character. Optimistic, naive, and incredibly average, he joined the tour with his best friend, Hayato.

  • Affectionate Nickname: One of his kindergarten classmates addressed him as "Micchan".
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Was bullied in elementary school until he became friends with Hayato.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Appears to save Masaki from the Witch Hunt the others were starting.
  • Break the Cutie: Was forced to pretend to be his dead twin brother ever since he was in kindergarten, leading him to grow up to be the Extreme Doormat he is today. And when he finally decides to stand up for himself, he finds out that his best friend has seen him as nothing but a puppet this entire time.
  • Character Development: Decides to finally stand up to his mother and Hayato and be himself, no matter what anyone else wants him to be.
  • Childhood Friends: With Hayato.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: When Lovepon tries to drown him, he finds himself distracted by her wet shirt.
  • Extreme Doormat: He's used to mindlessly going along with whatever people tell him to do. He joined the tour in an attempt to grow out of this, but he's remains somewhat gullible and easy to talk into things.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Since there were only two pairs that came on the tour together, one of whom was a lovey-dovey couple, Lion assumed that Mitsumune and Hayato were dating. Despite Mitsumune clarifying their relationship, she didn't seem convinced.
  • Nice Guy
  • One-Gender School: His and Hayato's school.
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot: Seems to struggle with the difference between internal and external monologues. He has been known to comment out loud on other character's heights, how they smell, and whether or not he finds them attractive.
  • Real Name as an Alias: He confesses that the screen name he introduces himself with is actually his real name. However, we later learn that ever since the death of his twin brother, Tokimune, he hasn't actually been called Mitsumune.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Compared to Hayato, Mitsumune is more sensitive and trusting.
  • Serial Romeo: Was afraid he was becoming one after he developed interests in Masaki, Nanko, and Lion. He was relieved to realize he wasn't interested in Maimai.
  • The Unfavorite: His mother favored his twin brother Tokimune, and when he died, his mother chose to believe that it was Mitsumune that died and began calling him Tokimune.

     Hayato/Speedstar (颯人?)
Voiced by: Taku Yashiro

Mitsumune's friend since childhood. Unlike Mitsumune, he's calm, aloof, and pragmatic.

  • Abusive Parents: His parents were very abusive and controlling towards him, such as beating him and locking him in the attic for not acting like a perfect son.
  • Bishōnen
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Everything he did to help Mitsumune since they met was solely for the purpose of controlling him the same way his parents control him.
  • Break Them by Talking: Is on the receiving end of one by Koharun, causing his Nanaki to become huge.
  • Character Development: Grows out of his need to control someone and becomes true friends with Mitsumune after facing his own Nanaki.
  • Childhood Friends: With Mitsumune.
  • Control Freak: Gets very upset whenever Mitsumune doesn't follow his "advice". Turns out his parents were like this as well and he's this way to Mitsumune because he wants to feel in control desperately.
  • The Cynic: Claims he went on the trip to prove that the village didn't exist.
  • Declaration of Protection: To Mitsumune when they were kids.
  • First-Name Basis: Tells Mitsumune to call him by his real name instead of Speedstar.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: By the end of the series, he and Mitsumune become true best friends.
  • Knife Nut: During Masaki's witch hunt, he takes a knife to torture her, even cutting her shoulder.
  • Not So Above It All: For someone who claims to not believe in crazies, he was very quick to join the other members on the witch hunt against Masaki. Of course, he mainly just wanted to get rid of her so she wouldn't be able to influence Mitsumune anymore.
  • One-Gender School: The school he attended with Mitsumune.
  • Only Sane Man: He appears to be one of the more levelheaded characters in the anime. However, this is subverted in the second half of the anime.
  • Poisonous Friend: The entire reason why he became Mitsumune's friend in the first place was to control him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Compared to Mitsumune, Hayato is more aloof and stoic.
  • Yandere: Shows some traits of this towards Mitsumune, such as trying to stab Masaki for "seducing" Mitsumune. When he tells Mitsumune he only stuck with him because he saw Mitsumune as his puppet, he adds a half-crazed plea for things to stay as they were and for Mitsumune to stay obedient.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Given the normal hair colors of the rest of the cast, Speedstar's blue hair is probably meant to be stylized black hair.

     Masaki (真咲)
Voiced by: Yuka Aisaka

A eccentric, emotional girl who Mitsumune finds himself drawn to.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Shows shades of this episode one, believing something bad might happen since she couldn't hold her breath until her food was ready.
  • Dead All Along: In universe, some characters become suspicious of this.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When Mitsumune speaks to her for the first time, she claims something bad might happen since she was unable to hold her breath until her food was finished heating.
  • Figure It Out Yourself: Her behavior leads others to think she knows more than she's letting on. Unfortunately, she's also very vague in answering questions, making people become suspicious of her.
  • Hair Decorations: Mitsumune finds hers in Episode 9, making him think she's in trouble.
  • Mysterious Waif: Starts to develop into this as we learn more about her ties to the village.
  • Only Sane Man: Played with. Episode 8 makes it sound like she may be this, as the only member without a Dark and Troubled Past. However, with the reveal that not only is Reiji her Nanaki, but was never real to begin with she can probably be crossed off this list as well.
  • Prone to Tears: Easily brought to tears over a sad children's song.
  • Witch Hunt: Mikage convinces everybody she might be a ghost, so everybody gets together and goes after him, even tying her to a pole.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: She interrupts a dramatic moment by getting carsick and puking on the driver.

     Lion (リオン; Rion
Voiced by: Hiromi Igarashi

A snarky girl in a yellow coat.

  • Creepy Child: The youngest in the group, she also easily brings up topics like cannibalism and murder.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: She and Nanko band together as the only ones not participating in the Masaki witch hunt. They later team up with Maimai while figuring out the secrets of the village. In the final episode, the three of them share a Group Hug.
  • The Gadfly: Claims that she can see dead people, for seemingly no reason other than to rile people up. She later adds a "Just Joking" Justification, although it does seem as if she can actually see when people are going to die.
  • In the Hood: With cat ears on it.
  • I Choose to Stay: She decides to stay in Nanaki in the end.
  • I See Dead People: Played with. She makes this claim after announcing that Mitsumune is a ghost. She later confesses that she was lying, but goes onto mutter that she can actually see people who are about to die. It's later revealed that She really can see if someone is likely to die soon, though not necessarily whether their death is absolutely certain. Her mother sets her up as a sort of priestess, and uses her predictions to convince the family of people on death's door to buy expensive "charms" the mother made.
  • Little Miss Snarker: She doesn't speak often, but when she does, she's usually this.
  • Only Sane Woman: Creepy Child tendencies aside, she's one of the more rational members of the group. On at least one occasion, she has taken steps to diffuse a situation where the rest of the cast was arguing meaninglessly. Later she's one of the few characters to not participate in the witch hunt on Masaki.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The youngest and shortest of the tour group.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: She's shown to be more rational and level-headed characters, especially when compared to the adults.

     Koharun (こはるん)
Voiced by: Kaoru Sakura

The woman responsible for tracking down the location of Nanaki village. She's an expert in folklore and mythology.

  • Big Bad Friend: She is the one who created the whole trip, knowing what would happen.
  • Daddy's Girl: Very close to with her father, even following him into the same profession.
  • The Heavy: She was the one suggest the trip, despite knowing what would happen. Her words were also what pushed Hayato's Nanaki to become so strong.
  • I Choose to Stay: She leads the group that stays back in Nanaki.
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: Nanaki village's iconic nursery rhyme is supremely creepy. The other characters don't appreciate her habit of randomly singing it without warning.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She is Kami-sama's daughter.
  • The Mole: Everyone initially suspects her of this as she knows a lot about the village. This goes away as people start to suspect Masaki instead. However, those who suspected her turned out to be correct.
  • Scape Goat: She tells Valkana that Masaki ended up becoming this for her.
  • Ship Tease: With Valkana. Dahara is not amused by this.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Did everything to help her father.


     Valkana (ヴァルカナ; Varukana
Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki

A man with a short temper. He's quick to take leadership roles, and tries to keep the rest of the group in check.

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Frequently seen shouting at the rest of the group.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite insisting otherwise, he does want to protect the people around him.
  • Moral Dissonance: When Mitsumune lashes out to stop one of the characters from attacking Masaki with a knife, Valkana's response is to tackle Mitsumune and pin him down. Note that this is just after he himself tried to stop Speedstar from stabbing Masaki.
  • Scape Goat: Was used as one by the company he was working with.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Threatens this to Koharun, but doesn't actually go through with it.

Supporting Characters

     Dahara (ダーハラ)
Voiced by: Shinya Takahashi

The organizer of the tour. He tries to keep an upbeat attitude among the group with varied success.

  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Downplayed. While he doesn't seem happy that Koharun and Valkana are getting closer, he doesn't try to interfere either.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Probably one for Koharun.
  • I Choose to Stay: Subverted. He says he wants to stay and help Koharun take care of people, but once someone points out how he talked shit about her behind her back, he decides to "fulfill his duties as a guide" and take people home.

Voiced by: Tarusuke Shingaki

A large guy who who wanted to escape the humdrum of his everyday life.

  • Big Eater: He's almost always seen eating or talking about food.
  • Flat Character: Gets absolutely no development beyond the fact that he eats a lot.
  • Inappropriate Hunger: "I like eating, but I wouldn't want to be the one being eaten." After the cast find themselves menaced by an unknown monster.
  • The Load: He's lazy and complains about having to help out.
  • NEET: According to his official description.
  • Obsessed with Food: Most of his lines center around his love for food.

Voiced by: Satoshi Mikami

The bus driver who was hired to bring the cast to Nakimura village. He considers the characters selfish for trying to abandon their past.

  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Since he doesn't use a screen name, the rest of the cast simply refer to him as 'the bus driver'.
  • Grumpy Old Man
  • Not So Above It All: He initially wanted to leave as soon as everyone was dropped off in the village. He later reconsiders and joins everyone in the village.
  • Only Sane Man: Subverted. At first he appears to be this when he calls everyone out for running away from their problems in the first episode, but moments afterword it turns out that he has as much emotional baggage as everyone else on trip.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: It's revealed that he had a young daughter who died ten years ago.
  • Taking You with Me: During the drive to the village, he gets worked up and threatens to crash the bus.


     Hyouketsu no Judgness (氷結のジャッジネス; Hyōketsu no Judgeness
Voiced by: Atsushi Abe

A theatrical man with a superiority complex.

  • Asshole Victim: After how rude he was to Jack and everyone else, it's a little hard to feel sorry about what happened to him.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Basically a textbook chuunibyou.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: When the group tries to escape the village, he get freaked out and runs off a cliff. We next see him wielding a bow and arrow with some competence as he attacks Koharun and Valkana. Subverted, as he ends up missing all shots before trying to run away like a coward.
  • Dirty Coward: He talks big, but in dangerous situations, he's the first to cower and run away.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He probably attempts to invoke this trope, although considering what a Dirty Coward he is, he most likely failed.
  • Jerkass
  • I Choose to Stay: Stays in Nanaki during the finale.
  • Large Ham: Is known for spouting lines like "My star of destiny is starting to throb with rage."
  • Never Found the Body: We're lead to believe that he ran off a cliff and died, but the characters aren't given a chance to search for him. Turns out, he's alive.
  • Trauma Conga Line: He's introduced as an unlikable jerkass who after being attacked by Jack, takes fright and runs off from the rest of the group, disappearing for several episodes. He returns in episode 10 and spends nearly every moment after that terrified out of his mind as other characters beat him up, physically and emotionally. At one point he briefly regains his pompous attitude, only to be punched in the face immediately afterwards and once again reduced to a sniveling wreck.
  • Wardrobe Wound: The first thing he does after nearly dying is complain about how expensive his damaged jacket was.
  • Younger Than He Looks: He's actually 15. Though you wouldn't be able to tell just by looking at him.

     Jack (ジャック)
Voiced by: Kosuke Miyoshi

A quiet boy with a unpredictable temper.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: According to Maimai, he was probably the victim of extreme bullying.
  • Ax-Crazy: When he's pushed too far.
  • Axes at School: A year before the start of the anime, he was sent to juvie for stabbing one of his classmates.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Outside of introducing himself, his only spoken lines for a long time were when he attacked the bus driver in the first episode.
  • Bullying the Dragon: One could argue that after what happened with the bus driver, Hyokutsu should have known better than to provoke him.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: It's not clear whether or not he forgot her, but he and Maimai went to school together.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Most people would agree that attempting murder over being called a copycat is going a little too far.
  • Hit Me, Dammit!: After hearing that Judgeness failed his mission, Jack punches him in the face and then promptly requests that Judgeness do the same, since Jack also failed his mission.
  • I Choose to Stay: Decides to not go back to his boring life and stay in Nanaki.
  • Tranquil Fury: When attacking the bus driver, and especially when he tries to kill Hyokutsu.

     Jigoku no Gouka (地獄の業火; Jigoku no Gōka
Voiced by: Shun Horie

A military buff who claims the world is all about survival.

  • Cheaters Never Prosper: We don't see much of what happens after he has silicone injected into his head to pass the military's height requirement, but it clearly didn't end well for him.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Only about as crazy as the rest of the group, but very focused on survival situations.
  • Height Angst: Was just barely too short to join the military.
  • Knife Nut: In contrast to Nyanta, he seems to prefer bladed weapons.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: In the second episode, he claims women are useless in survival situations, only dragging the group down and causing dissent. Oddly, this is the only time he expresses that opinion, and he has no problem working with Nyanta, or even Lovepon.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: A very lethargic version when decides to leave Nanaki because living in survival mode all the time is too tiring.
  • The Social Darwinist: Introduces himself as one, but isn't as hostile as most examples.
  • Those Two Guys: Usually seen with Nyanta.

     Lovepon (らぶぽん; Rabupon
Voiced by: Ai Kakuma

An unstable girl fascinated with torture and executions. She claims she joined the tour to protect her identity.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Her flashbacks imply that she was fixed on executions ever since she was a little kid, but could have turned out okay if she weren't put through such an abusive situation.
  • Ax-Crazy: At the very least. She's always demanding suspicious or "evil" people to be executed (and gets violent if she does not get what she wants), shows delight in torture and executions, often shows disturbing expressions and tries to kill other characters herself multiple instances through the series. It's clear she's not in her right mind.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: Although she's not the main antagonist, still represents a major obstacle.
  • Black and White Insanity: Her reaction, to people that she considered criminals.
  • Cute and Psycho: Her defining trait. She's always the first in the group to advocate murder and torture as punishments.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: She is a dangerous psychopath obsessed with executions, nobody cares.
  • Disappeared Dad: The reason Lovepon had to deal with the horrible monk was because her father left with a huge debt over her and her mother's head.

  • Karma Houdini: By the end of the story, she suffers no repercussions for her misdeeds.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: At first the other characters laugh off her demands for torture and executions, but as the story progresses she becomes much more threatening and starts trying to act on her suggestions, first attempting murder, and then assisting with a kidnapping.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: When she pukes all over Dozaemon's back.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: She has golden eyes and is the most insane and deranged character of the series. She's noticeably the only character of the series (other than Lion, who has purple eyes) to feature an unnatural eye color.

     Maimai (マイマイ)
Voiced by: Ayaka Shimizu

A young woman who joined the tour due to drama in her interpersonal life. She later takes an interest in Mitsumune.

  • Adaptational Curves: In the anime, her breasts are of average size. In the manga, however, her chest is much more generous. Compare her profile image with this.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: She reveals that she joined the tour when she and her friend both liked the same boy but made a promise that it wouldn't ruin their friendship. When she started dating said boy, her friend stopped talking to her and got the rest of her friends to do the same with her boyfriend eventually joining their side.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her abrasive attitude, she has moments of genuine concern for other characters.

     Mikage Yura (美影 ユラ; Yoshikage Yura
Voiced by: Yoshiaki Hasegawa

An elite who claims to have joined the tour because treading the beaten path was unappealing to him.

  • Break the Haughty: His real reason for joining the tour. He willingly took on a project that his company was nervous over and gloated that it was guaranteed to succeed. When he made a minor mistake and caused the project to fail, he was made a laughing stock for his arrogance.
    • His whole role in the story seems to be this. He starts as a confident and serious person who tries to guide the rest of the group, but, after having all his plans failing, and, especially, after finding his Nanaki (that reminds him of his biggest failure) and after the group refuses to obey him (after they are affected by the apathy curse of Nanaki), he goes off the deep end and loses both his pride and sanity, becoming no better than the likes of Lovepon.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He's cold and unsympathetic, and, towards the end of the series, tries to kill Masaki after going partially insane.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Despite being the most paranoid member of the group, seems to trust in Lovepon.
  • Jerkass: He looks down on everyone and if they disagree with them, they're idiots.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: The ideas he proposes are usually quite logical, especially given the information available to the group.
  • Karma Houdini: Just like Lovepon, he suffers no punishment after his actions through the series, and leaves Nanaki more or less unscathed.
  • The Leader: He tries to present himself as Good Is Not Nice and a Pragmatic Hero, but mostly just succeeds at getting other characters to call him out on being a Jerkass.
  • Sanity Slippage: By the last episodes of the series, after confronting his Nanaki, failing to make Masaki confess what is happening in the village, and losing the control he thought he had over the group, his frustration with everything makes him become deranged and tries to torture, then kill, Masaki along with Lovepon. He, however, seems to get better after Reiji reveals the true nature of Nanaki.

  • Hero of Another Story: We know vey little about her yet she's the one driving a third of the plot.
  • Mysterious Past: Unfortunately we never learn any thing about her past.
  • Nice Girl: A bit more subtle, but she's nothing but helpful and never has any noticeable Jerkass moments.
  • Only Sane Woman: Due to this, she doesn't goes crazy like the other characters in the village.
  • The Smart Guy: She is the one figuring everything about the village out while everybody is freaking out and pointing fingers. By episode 9, she figures out how the village works, and how to get out of there.
  • The Stoic: She is one of the most calm and rational characters.
  • Thinking Tic: Scratching her sides.
