Click here to see his anime pre-Timeskip appearance 

Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae (Japanese), Bryce Papenbrook (English)

A brash and headstrong boy who once swore he would cleanse all impurities, but after surviving the "tragedy of Hinatsuki", he swore off exorcism altogether until he was put in an arranged marriage with Benio, forcing him to face his demons anew.


  • Accidental Pervert: Has happened a few times with Benio, such as him accidentally walking into her when she's dressing.
  • Adorkable: He's fairly childish and is pretty much incompetent at everything he does except exorcism, but he tries.
  • All or Nothing: Because of Rokuro's hot temper, he channels his power into strong but exhausting attacks that leave him vulnerable if his enemy survives. After the Time Skip, he's become disciplined enough to hold some power in reserve, so he can keep armor equipped.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Rokuro's right arm was eaten by his friend in Hinatsuki Dorm who had turned into an impurity due to the result of Yuuto's experiment.
  • Anti-Antichrist: In the anime, he learns he's the Cataclysm King, destined to Kill All Humans. With Suzu's encouragement, he decides to Screw Destiny.
  • Badass Adorable: Especially when he was younger, but he still looks cute as a teenager and no less powerful for it.
  • Battle Couple: He's slowly but surely forming one with Benio. They might not be comfortable with the couple thing yet, but they are an awesome team together.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Rokuro and Benio fight quite often, but it's clear they really feel attracted to each other and are just too stubborn to admit it.
  • Blood Knight: A downplayed example. He doesn't like violence so much as being able to vent his anger with impurities by punching them. Once the events at Hinatsuki turned his anger inward, he gave up exorcism for years.
  • Broken Bird: Like Benio, Rokuro is constantly haunted by the memory of Hinatsuki, actually more so because he was forced to kill his friends after they were turned to Impurities, and it clearly influences most of his actions in the present.
  • Bully Hunter: In the first episode, while Mayura is trying, and failing, to name anything that a girl would like about him, he spots a little boy being bullied by three thugs, each One Head Taller, refusing to return a snatched backpack. He immediately jumps into action to help the little glasses-wearing kid. Even though the performance was less than stellar, the result actually had the intended effect, ie the bullies fled, and the little boy got his backpack back, and showed genuine gratitude.
    • Subverted in the manga. The bullied child just flees while Rokuro's beaten up by the bullies instead, although they are literally half his size. Mayura chases them and comments on his hero complex backfiring constantly.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Even if he wants nothing to do with being an exorcist, he can't help to jump into action every time he sees someone in trouble, especially children.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Exorcism is pretty much the only thing he's good at, but his past traumas and insecurities make him reluctant from joining the fight. He gets better.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: After the event of the tragedy of Hinatsuki, Rokuro became disillusioned with exorcism, and began to hate everything associated with it... until he met Benio.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Rokuro was the sole survivor of the massacre of his entire dorm, later revealed that they had all been forcibly changed into Impurities and he was forced to exorcize them. Benio's twin brother was among them. Besides, he was also found in Magano, age around 6, with no memories at all.
  • Full-Name Basis: He calls Benio by her full name. She allows him to call her "Benio" quite early on in the manga, however.
  • Golden Super Mode: Gains one when fighting Yuuto allowing him to at least end the fight in a draw, it's not until after the two year time skip that he is able to willingly use it.
  • Hot-Blooded: Especially after the Time Skip. He immediately tries to follow Hijirimaru and Higano after they take off the fist time, although the former beat up Shimon badly while just playing around. He clearly Didn't Think This Through.
  • Idiot Hair: He has one strand of hair that stands out from the middle of his head.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rash, ill-tempered and rude, but a very good guy at heart.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: He was forced to kill his friends at Hinatsuki who were like family to him after they were turned into Impurities.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: Other characters comment how he and Benio already argue like a married couple.
  • Male Might, Female Finesse: Rokuro just smashes Impurities with one punch of his Power Fist, while Benio uses charms that increase her durability and speed in battle to make her so fast that she can't be seen by the normal eye.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: He has shark-like teeth. Kamui calls him "the kid with fangs".
  • My Greatest Failure: For Rokuro, being unable to save his friends during the tragedy of Hinatsuki (he was actually forced to kill them). However, learning after two years that there was a way to save them really hit him hard.
  • The Nicknamer: Rokuro nicknamed Arima "Pervert Underwear Man" and Higano "Leg Fetish Bastard"... It's also likely that he was the one who nicknamed Atsushi and Shinnosuke (he calls them Acchan and Shichan). Eventually becomes a Brick Joke when he teams up with another, Tenma, and picks up the one he gave Itsuki Zeze, "Fatty-masa".
  • Oblivious to Love: Completely oblivious to Benio's and Mayura's love for him. Sayo makes it obvious enough, though. He's just embarrassed about that one. Even when Benio kisses him he believes the lame excuse she comes up with out of embarrassment. Poor boy is in denial.
  • One-Hit Kill: His Power Fist can exorcise Impurities with a single punch.
  • Opposites Attract: With Benio. He's brash, loud and hot-headed, she's stoic, quiet and cool-headed.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: With Benio. They at first are not happy with the idea that they are destined to marry and give birth to the Miko. Eventually, they become closer and start to warm up to the idea.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: He claims he doesn't like Benio's 'masculine' combat skill, though he has no problem fighting with alongside her. Given that this disgust is only mentioned when he's trying to dissuade other people from shipping them, it may be feigned.
  • Porn Stash: In Episode 11, Benio finds his porn magazines hidden in the back of one of his desk drawers. Benio was not amused. Averted in the manga, where it's Benio's who's initially more prone to dirty thoughts.
  • Power Fist: He can turn his right arm into this.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He sports red eyes, and does get quite dangerous.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The hot-blooded and loud Red Oni to Benio's calm and reserved Blue Oni.
  • Sole Survivor: He's the only survivor from an attack by Impurities that killed eighteen of his fellow exorcist dorm mates.
  • Special Odd Hand: His right arm has the power to exorcise Impurities. He got it when Yuuto tried to turn him into an Impurity, but failed and instead replaced his right arm with that of an Impurity.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Benio, as it is the predestined fate of the Twin Star Exorcists. The female partner needs to become an Impurity to realise her destiny and would end up getting killed by the male partner.
  • Stock Shōnen Hero: At the start of the series, he had given up on exorcism due to his trauma of Hinatsuki and needed Benio's help to find the will to fight again. From then, he starts to develop into more of the typical rash, strong-willed Hot-Blooded hero who fights for the sake of protecting those close to him.
  • Stubborn Hair: According to Sousei's official website, Rokuro's ahoge is a result of bedhead that he can't fix.
  • Super Strength: Rokuro's charmed arm gives him incredible strength.
  • Survivor's Guilt: The trauma of Hinatsuki initially made him lose all interest in exorcism, but he found renewed purpose after meeting Benio and finding out Yuuto is alive.
  • Took a Level in Cynic: In the backstory, he is an ambitious young man who wants to live a good furure as an exorcist. However, the Hinatsuki incident causes him to become the cynical and ill-tempered man when he is introduced in the story.
  • Took a Level in Idealism: By the timeskip, Rokuro's far less cynical than he was at the start of the story; he is willing to live his purpose in life as an exorcist.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His Power Fist allows him to one-shot Impurities that would usually take a whole team to defeat, but he also sucks at writing sutra and can barely maintain more than one enchanted equipment at a time. His training over the time skip rectifies this for the most part.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He and Yuuto were friends until the tragedy of Hinatsuki.

  • A-Cup Angst: She later starts to become conscious about her small breast size, thinking Rokuro might believe Buxom Is Better.
  • Action Girl: A powerful exorcist who is quite skilled in combat and capable of using various enchanting charms.

  • Black Eyes of Crazy: When Sayo summons Benio's Guardian Spirit, the sclerae of Benio's eyes turns black, the iris yellow, and she becomes powerful and destructive like an Impurity.
  • Blood Knight: Benio really seems to enjoy fighting, to the point that she regularly enters Magano to fight Impurities instead of waiting for the ones already on earth to pop up.
  • Broken Bird: Long ago, she was a happy little girl. After losing her family, she now rarely smiles.
  • Brought Down to Badass: In chapter 32, after having her inner guardian called forth, Kuzonoha defeats it and Benio loses her spiritual powers. In spite of being unable to use any magic whatsoever at the time, she survives in Magano for five days, alone, with only a lunchbox.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Yuuto's Cain.
  • Comically Missing the Point: An omake has Rokuro angrily denying that he wants to have a child with Benio and says that she'd probably be like a tuna in bed anyway.note  Benio immediately thinks of the positive characteristics of tuna and assumes Rokuro is praising her as a Determinator and Lightning Bruiser, causing a Luminescent Blush.
  • The Comically Serious: She tends to react to most of the comedic moments in the series with a straight look in her face.
  • Can't Catch Up: Rokuro starts stronger due to his impurity arm, and every time she gets a powerup he gets one to, leaving her behind all over again.
  • Cool Mask: Her Enchanted Gear is called Izayoi Higan no Mai, which is a white fox mask that gets covered in markings when the spell is used on it.
  • Cry Cute: The usually composed Benio suddenly tears up as she apologizes to Rokuro for the pain her brother brought to him in the past, as well as throughout her harrowing experience of losing her powers and when Rokuro brings back the hairpins she lost in Magano..
  • Dance Battler: Benio's attacks all have dances in the name.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Benio witnessed the death of her parents, and later lost her twin brother.
  • Deal with the Devil: Kamui mends her blown up legs with an Impurity's body, like Rokuro's arm.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Starts off cold towards Rokuro, but she slowly opens up as she falls in love with him.
  • Discard and Draw: Chinu reveals it's impossible for Benio to ever use yang powers again. If she wants to fight again, she must awaken her yin powers as "Luna", but there's a horrible catch to this: Benio needs to stop being human to become a full Impurity.
  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Always speaks... with... ellipsis...
  • Dual Wielding: She fights with two charmed blades.
  • Eating Lunch Alone: At lunchtime, she likes to get away from everyone and go eat ohagi on the rooftop, by herself.

  • Even the Girls Want Her: She was pretty popular among the female students of her old One-Gender School. And again in Rokuro's school after the timeskip.
  • Foil: To her Arranged Marriage fiance, Rokuro. While the two of them went through nearly identical childhood trauma, coming from the same source, the trauma made her more determined to become the best exorcist the world has ever seen, yet broke Rokuro, and made him completely give up on his dream of being the strongest, until she shows up in his life and drags him back into it.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: Downplayed, in a recent extra by Sukeno, Rokuro invites Benio to watch a scary movie. As the film progresses she gradually, while holding her pillow, moves from her side of the couch into Rokuro's lap all the while keeping a straight face and posture.

  • Hates Small Talk: She finds chatting bothersome and only speaks when it's very necessary.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • She takes a pretty big shock when Arima tells her she has lost her enchanted powers and therefore she isn't an exorcist anymore and can't go to the island with Rokuro. She locks herself in her room for days, completely trashes it while trying everything she can think of to draw out her powers again, and outright tells Baa-san that she wants to die.
    • According to chapter 37, losing her parents and being separated from her brother shook her up so bad, she couldn't even concentrate enough to form enchanted gear anymore.
  • Hime Cut: She has this hairstyle to show her position as the head of the distinguished Adashino family.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her Super-Powered Evil Side has horns.
  • I Am Who?: As the female half of the Twin Star Exorcists, "Luna", Benio is in reality the ultimate vessel for yin power, meant to eventually become the "Princess of Impurities".

  • Like an Old Married Couple: With Rokuro. It's actually lampshaded plenty of times.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Looks like her mother with her father's personality, including his love for ohagi.
  • Love Epiphany: In chapter 33, Benio finally admits to herself that she is in love with Rokuro and even kisses him.
  • Male Might, Female Finesse: Benio relies on charms that increase her durability and speed in battle to make her so fast that she can't be seen by the normal eye, while Rokuro just smashes Impurities with one punch of his Power Fist.
  • Marked Change: Glowing marks appears in her body when she uses her charms. Her Super Mode also displays black markings.
  • Modesty Shorts: Wears spandex shorts under her Minidress of Power.
  • New Transfer Student: She transfers into Rokuro's class.
  • Not So Different: She and Rokuro actually are more similar than they initially think; both of them have similar dispositions and have lost loved ones in the past.
  • Oh, Crap!: She's utterly shocked when she realizes that her brother wasn't what he seemed to be.
  • Ojou: Benio is the head of the distinguished Hondo-Adashino Family from Kyoto.
  • Opposites Attract: With Rokuro. She's stoic, quiet and cool-headed, he's brash, loud and hot-headed.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: With Rokuro. They start to warm up to their Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage as they become closer and fall in love with each other.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: She responds with extreme violence whenever she thinks Rokuro does or says something perverted, even if it's him simply walking in on her in the bathroom while half-asleep, and not being used to the fact that Benio pretty much forced her way into the house where he lives.
  • Power Armor: The exorcists can create a magic version.
  • The Quiet One: When Rokuro meets her, Benio doesn't say a word to him for a very long while. Even after she starts to open up, she doesn't say much unless she has to.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She has long black hair and pure white skin and she's found beautiful by anyone she meets.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The calm and reserved Blue Oni to Rokuro's hot-blooded and loud Red Oni.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: To her dismay, Benio several times ends up exposed in embarrassing situations with Rokuro.
  • Sadistic Choice: When she was eight, a super strong Impurity gave her ten seconds to decide which one of her parents he should kill and which one he should save. She can't decide, and he asks her parents instead- their lives or Benio's. They say Benio with no hesitation whatsoever.
  • Secret Legacy: She's a distant descendant of Ashiya Doman, the creator of Impurities.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Rokuro. Benio's destiny as the female half of the Twin Star Exorcists is to become an Impurity and get killed by Rokuro.
  • The Stoic: Benio rarely shows any emotion.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks a lot like her mother.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Her aloof and reserved personality leads her to be dismissive towards others, but she's still a compassionate person at heart. Once she develops feelings for Rokuro, there are moments in which she can drop the Ice Queen act to be sweet to him.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: When Sayo summoned Benio's Guardian Spirit, her appearance and power resembled an Impurity's. Said change allows her to fight evenly one-on-one against Higano and blow up his leg while she remained pretty much unscathed. As a reminder, it took herself and Rokuro using resonance (Which multiplies their power about 5~10 times) to blow up Kamui's, who is several times weaker.
  • Super Speed: She usually fights by speeding around and hitting opponents before they can even register what's happening.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Chinu reveals to Benio that not only she has yin powers like an Impurity, she's essentially an incomplete Impurity in human form meant to transform into a full Impurity.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: By the timeskip, Benio has become a lot more selfless, considerate and willing to help others thanks to Rokuro.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Really, really likes ohagis. Taken Up to Eleven in the anime, where she wants to start a Ohagi-man anime. She says they're ready anytime and already has a theme song.
  • Tsundere: She gets easily flustered and beats the crap out of Rokuro when he's being rude or walks in on her in the bathroom. However, Benio has romantic feelings towards him, even if she attempts to deny them.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Played for Laughs. In her first appearance, she mooches food off of Rokuro and slaps his hand away when he tries to take some. What's worse is that her response to Rokuro rescuing her from a Kegare she has no chance against is to step on his foot and angrily lecture him.
  • Unknown Rival: To Rokuro. Once she witnesses his power as an exorcist, Benio insists on fighting him and surpassing him. Rokuro, for his part, doesn't have any interest in competing with Benio and he wants nothing to do with being an exorcist. This blows off quickly.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She uses equipment sutras to give herself Power Armor and Super Speed, but struggles against big tank enemies. Thanks to Kamui, this has changed somewhat, but she still seems weaker than Rokuro or even White Tiger!Mayura.
  • When She Smiles: In Chapter 18, Rokuro gives Benio a prize he won while they were hanging out by themselves in a local festival. After Benio smiles sweetly in response, he blushes profusely and thinks he'd like to make her smile more.
  • The Worf Effect: Often the first one taken out in battle, as she usually gets the short end of the stick when the plot needs other characters to show off. Ths changes when her Super-Powered Evil Side awakens.
  • You Killed My Father: Her main goal is to destroy the Impurity that killed her parents. She also wanted to avenge her brother, but turns out he's alive and he's not the kind brother Benio remembered.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high stockings in almost all her outfits.

Mayura Otomi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayurapng.jpg
Mayura Otomi

Voiced by: Yu Serizawa (Japanese), Laura Summer (English)

Rokuro's childhood friend and the daughter of one of the most powerful exorcists on the planet.


  • Accidental Pervert: She walks in on a naked Shimon while entering a gym locker room.
  • Barrier Maiden: Her ability with barriers far exceeds any other ability she has.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Benio's Veronica in the love triangle involving Rokuro as Archie.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Gets turned into a fallen impurity by Yuuto, luckily she gets better
  • Can't Catch Up: Eventually she does start training to be an onmyouji, but by that time Rokuro and Benio have a lot more skill and power so Mayura ends up feeling inadequate at being unable to help her friends.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She has been friends with Rokuro since childhood, since she often went to play at Hinatsuki. She is in love with Rokuro, but he sees her only like a dear childhood friend.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She gets jealous of Benio and Sayo at times, and actually hits Rokuro upon learning that he lives together with a girl.
  • D-Cup Distress: She feels embarrassed about the size of her breasts and they get in the way when she does sports.
  • Determinator: Her fight with Higano is terribly one sided, but Mayura still keeps standing up to him even after her power-up wore off.
  • Expy: She's essentially a younger, more timid Ichiko Sakura, the protagonist of the author's previous series, sharing the same light hair, unusually large breasts (for a fourteen-year-old) and nascent combat potential.
  • Extraordinarily Empowered Girl: Mayura actually has a large amount of spiritual powers, but isn't an Onmyouji. Which is why she could be forcibly changed into an Impurity. According to her father if he had raised her as an Onmyouji from the beginning even Benio would not be as strong as her.
    • During her fight with Higano, he states that while her level of raw power is exceptional, it is only when compared to the mainland. On the island people need to have her level of power at a minimum just to survive.
  • Fish out of Water: She has the power of an exorcist, which is not the same as actually living like them or understanding what they do. She prefers her ordinary school life.
  • Gag Boobs: Much like Ichiko before her, Mayura's unusually large chest is a source of humor, such as hitting the high jump vault with them.
  • Heroic Lineage: Her father is one of the most powerful exorcists on the planet.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation:
    • She manages to become an exorcist in a very short amount of time, but because she constantly compares herself to Rokuro and Benio, she feels she suffers from Can't Catch Up.
    • She also has a habit of unfavorably comparing herself to those that seek Rokuro's affection.
    • See also It's Personal below.
  • Hopeless Suitor: To Rokuro. Even though she doesn't want to give up easily, Rokuro only sees her as a friend and he's already destined to marry Benio.
  • Instant Expert:
    • Zig-zagged, as she becomes an exorcist in an extremely short amount of time, but it is shown to be through a rigorous training regiment. Even after two years, she still has very little battle experience, and her father notes that she doesn't have much of a killer instinct.
    • She Discussed it with Byakko when he commented that her father's style was more refined. She tells him it's the first time, she won't equal her father anytime soon.
  • It's Personal: States this was her reason to come to the Tsuchimikado island , as her goal is coming into equal footing to Rokuro, so she can protect him, and feels unworthy to be the next head of Amawaka clan. Yuzuru, who harbored Unrequited Love for Seigen, told her it's okay to accept the position and use it as stepping stone for her goal, as her end goal is after all protecting, the goal of Amawaka clan and the Byakko himself.
  • Multicolored Hair: She has blonde hair with green highlights at the end.
  • Patient Childhood Love Interest: To Rokuro. At the beginning of the story, they have known each other for eight years, and it's implied that her crush on him dates all the way back to childhood.
  • Reluctant Hero: She fights only because the threat is so great that she has to. This shows in her ability- which is diligently honed but nowhere near the level of her actual potential. This is what makes her capable of hosting the White Tiger spirit, whose strength is based on protecting others.
  • Ship Tease: With Shimon. The most prominent example would be their first meeting: a Naked First Impression.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Over the two year time skip she becomes a exorcist. She even eventually gains the same power as her father, which allows her to go toe-to-toe with a Basara on her first mission.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears white thigh-high stockings with her school uniform.

Ryougo Nagitsuji

Rokuro's friend and fellow exorcist, who often acts as a surrogate big brother.



Seigen Amawaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seigen_anime_design.png
Seigen Amawaka

Voiced By: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese), Doug Erholtz (English)

A powerful exorcist who is one of the 11 Heavenly Commanders. He is also the personal trainer of many exorcist including Rokuro, Ryougo, Yuuto, and Mayura. He is also Mayura's father.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the manga, his hair is black with green tips. In the anime, the colors are the same, but reversed.
  • Berserk Button: In the chibi series, talking smack about Yukari is a good way to make him angry.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Seigen, who is tormented by guilt for his past actions as an assassin, meets and falls in love with Yukari, the one who came to help Seigen after she sees his sad eyes in their first meeting.
  • Dirty Business: Back in his youth he was a member of the "Ritsu", a special squad of exorcists who serve as guardians of Tsuchimikado Island, currently tasked with killing fellow exorcists infected with "Jugen Monoimi", a form of The Corruption that drives them mad... and he's not too happy with such a position.
  • Disappeared Dad: Tries to be this, but his family understands why he stays away, and Mayura even says he will be welcome back when his job is done. After he is forced to retire, he begins living with Mayura and her mother again.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: He has small bags under his eyes, giving him the look of an insomniac. In fact, he is insomniac. See Dirty Business above. His job as an assassin actually makes him feels so guilty he can rarely got good sleeps in the night, according to Yuzuru.
  • Henpecked Husband: The author's sketches and the anime heavily implies this. Examples including when Rokuro goes complaining about what Benio is cooking to the inhabitants of Seiko Dormitory, he just told Rokuro to suck it up. Sketches where he and Yukari have an argument show that it would end with his face clawed. Of course it didn't go unlampshaded, and who did it didn't get away with it.
    Rokuro: She keep making the same dish for the entire week! Can you believe that ?!
    Seigen: If you're a man, shut up and eat what's served on the table.
    Ryougo: Listen to the experienced man, Rokuro!
    Atsushi: Could it be... That he's henpecked?
  • I Have Your Wife: In the anime, Kuranashi pulls this on Seigen during the big battle to prevent him and Mayura from attacking the energy core.
  • Idiot Hair: He has a cowlick that stands out from his head.
  • Intimate Healing: Invoked by Yukari when they go on their first honeymoon together as she wanted to get him to relax. When they get to the open air bath he awkwardly and embarrassingly tries to politely refuse her advances, however, Yukari won't have it.
Yukari: Now it's my turn...to give your body a thorough scrub(every inch from top to bottom).
Seigen: [looks away]...No thank you, I-
Yukari: Don't be shy~ after all tonight we skip the formalities❤.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: The main reason why he divorces Yukari as he didn't want the dangers of his job to affect her and Mayura. Fortunately, Yukari doesn't take this hard.
  • Longing Look: After first spending many days with Yukari on Tsuchimakado Island he later gives one to her as he watches her inspecting a flower.
  • Multicolored Hair: He has black hair with green highlights at the end (the colors are reversed in the anime) and a yellow Idiot Hair.
  • Naked Freak-Out: Subverted. Unlike Yukari, who is freaking out when they go to the open air bath, he doesn't care in the slightest about being in his birthday suit in front of her. He instead teases Yukari's insecurities at the time by offering to wash her back as a joking payback for making him go on a honeymoon. He embarrassingly "regrets" this in the end when she takes charge and overcomes her initial insecurities.
  • Papa Wolf: It would not be the best idea to target Mayura when he is around.
  • Short Hair with Tail: He has his hair in a straight bob, with long twin tails tied at the nape of his neck.
  • Shower of Love: Played with. Instead of in the shower it's heavily implied that they do it in the open air bath.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: He has no patients for half-assed effort, you either do it or die. Even his own daughter is still subject to this when she starts training.
  • Skunk Stripe: He has a yellow Idiot Hair that stands out of his otherwise dark hair.

Arima Tsuchimikado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arima_anime_design.png
Arima
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)

The leader of the Exorcists of Japan.


  • Bishōnen: He's got some very feminine looks.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's the chief exorcist, but has an eccentric and laid back demeanor. It gets lampshaded in the second chapter.
  • Easily Forgiven: Subverted and justified. He doesn't even get yelled at for deliberately speaking ill of the victims at the tragedy of Hinatsuki, despite him claiming otherwise in his "apology" afterwards. This is likely due to the fact he negated the powers and abilities of both Benio and Rokuro simultaneously with a simple gesture, after driving both of them into a murderous frenzy and pitting them against each other. Rokuro may be Hot-Blooded, but he's not an idiot.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Sports glasses, seems to have little morality. His riling up Rokuro before revealing he and Benio are the Twin Stars, by simply stating that his dead friends didn't deserve to live, is only scratching the surface. Though he does apologize, it's very clear that he'd trigger anyone again without remorse. He also treats his son terribly, possibly to drive him away from the burden of the exorcist war.
  • Jerkass: He isn't exactly the nicest guy, and is more than willing to use underhanded things to get what he wants.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has very long hair.
  • Multicolored Hair: He has long white hair that turns blue at the end.
  • Naked First Impression: Due to the way Rokuro first met him he dubbed him Pervert Underwear Man. Downplayed, as he was in his boxers.
  • Perpetual Smiler: At least in the anime rendition, it's very hard to tell how sincere he is at any given time because he's always smiling, regardless of the situation. He can be smiling with childish glee. He can be showing a smug or Psychotic Smirk. If he's being particularly vindictive or manipulative, he can sport a Slasher Smile. But he always has a smile on his face, even when he's claiming to be apologetic.
  • Rapunzel Hair: He has hip length hair.
  • Shipper with an Agenda: He wants Rokuro and Benio to marry so they can give birth to the Miko.
  • We Have Reserves: He notes that if Rokuro and Benio get killed, he can just wait for the next Twin Stars to be born.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: All he cares about is the Twin Stars having the Miko, who will end a 1000 year war, other than that everything and everyone else is meaningless.

Shimon Ikaruga

Shimon Ikaruga

Voiced By: Kaito Ishikawa (Japanese), Johnny Yong Bosch (English)

A child prodigy who despite only being 2 years older than Rokuro has attained the rank of Heavenly Commander. He bears the name of Suzaku.


  • Adorkable: Despite his usual stern character, he is prone to curling up in embarrassment with his hands covering his blushing face.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Not even bothered by Tenma slicing off his leg and showing up afterwards.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Pretty good at figuring out how spells and techniques work, then using the knowledge to his advantage.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Incredibly protective of "Chiiko", whom he considers his little sister, and hopes to end the war with the impurities so that the spirits that she houses will leave before their power kills the young girl.
  • Child Prodigy: One of the strongest Exorcist on the planet and only 18.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Shimon has Mayura and Rokuro hold onto him to fly out of the way of a pile of falling rubble. Mayura is scared of heights and asks him to put them down, so he looks at her by reflex... Only to realize her chest is pressing onto him. He reddens and starts sweating, and you can see his flight pattern getting all loopy before they crash. Whoops.
  • Drone Deployer: Can send small swords to attack his foe's of which he is one hundred percent in control of.
  • Flight: One of the few exorcist capable of real flight.

Sayo "Chiiko" Ikaruga

Sayo
Heir to the Ikaruga clan and Shimon's younger sister, though actually cousin. She houses one of the most powerful spirits, as well as 48 others in her body.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Only 11 years old but tends to act much older, especially around Rokuro.
  • Ill Girl: Played with in that she is not sick but the spirits she house are so powerful that they are killing her and it is unlikely she will live long enough to see her twentieth birthday.

Subaru Mitejima

  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: She refuses to equip Gaihou Goura in her match against Mayura, saying she wants to curbstomps her and gloat how amazing she is.
  • Ascended Extra: In the manga, she has only appeared in a sidestory. In the anime, she gets an actual appearance as Benio's former master. This changes slightly after the Hadarae Castle Games arc of the manga, which gives her a little backstory. She then decides to take Mayura as her apprentice, hinting that she will get more screentime in the next arc as well.
  • Christmas Cake: She's 35, and she is still looking for a man for her. Lampshaded in the manga where Mayura got to fight her in the Hadarae Castle Game, the members of Amawaka clan called her "lonely old hag".

  • Eccentric Mentor: In the anime, she is shown to rant about the art of being a woman to Benio. When Benio realizes this, she starts wondering if that was actually training.
  • Eyes Always Shut: She almost always keeps her eyes closed.
  • Guns Akimbo: She dual-wields a pair of guns that come out of her hand fan.
  • The Gunslinger: She uses several guns that come out of her hand fan in combat.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: She speaks with this accent. Since she was Benio's teacher, it's possible Subaru comes from Kyoto.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Her Kariginu looks like a old-fashined Western gown... Didn't stop her from being an effective Exorcist. Strongest female exorcist after Abe no Seimei currently alive, even.
  • Multicolored Hair: Blonde hair with pink sidelocks.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a huge white hat.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Despite being a Proper Lady, Yuzuru explained that she is still single because she is too powerful and causes men to back off from her.

  • Animal Motif: He was once portrayed as part squirrel in his chibi form when having a staring contest with Shimon.
  • Badass Adorable: He's the most powerful Heavenly Commander, and adorable. Also, his kariginu looks too big for him.
  • Berserk Button: Downplayed and played for laughs. His reaction varies depending on the manga and anime but his chord is struck whenever someone mistakes him for a girl or being compared to looking like one either. Sukeno also has an extra of Tenma angrily yelling at the viewers who thought he was a girl while its downplayed in anime preview where he just tells Sae to shut up when she comments on his looks
    Sae:Tenma, you're so cute, just like a girl!
    Tenma: [annoyed] Shut-up!
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Rokuro from almost getting killed by an impurity on his, Rokuro's, first mission in the magano realm at the island.
  • Bishōnen: A very pretty boy with long hair and eyelashes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: In order to inherit the Kijin shikigami, candidates are automatically selected by a curse to fight to the death until only one survives. He ended up killng his sister figure who cursed him to forever be alone with her dying breath.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Yes, that's a guy. Short, long hair, eyelashes... Even Rokuro notes that he thought he might've been a girl when it was made clear he wasn't. Extra art drawn for his introduction in the main story had the caption "Raise your hand if you thought he was a girl".
  • Exposition Beam: In chapter 36, he uses Telepathy to explain the creation of Magano to Rokuro.
  • Hair Antennae: Taken Up to Eleven. How many of those does he have?!
  • Hair Intakes: His hair has a pair of intakes that vaguely look like cat ears.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Despite his apparent calm during his official manga appearances, at least two extras hint that he also has this. He seems to enjoy getting a rise out of Rokuro as well.
  • Lonely at the Top: He had to kill his family members when he was still a very young child. The last one to die told him he would always be this.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has long hair that goes along his feminine looks. It's actually shorter post-timeskip, at least in the manga.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His right eye is dark brown/purple, and the left one is light green. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for it so far, except Rule of Cool.
  • Mr. Exposition: In the manga, as half of chapter 36 is an Instructional Dialogue between him and Rokuro.
  • Naked First Impression: First meets Rokuro in the bathhouse.
  • The Nicknamer:
    • Dubbed Rokuro "Chibisuke/Twerp", Shimon "Torimaru/Birdmaru", and Benio "Flatty" thus far.
    • Loli Girl, Fatty-masa, Mecha-mi, Musclehead, Money grubber, Urchin Head, Green kid, Cocky little-Schemer, Hentai Megane Otoko, papa/daddy bear,Otarou, Emoticon-man, Madam, Director, Boin-girl, Chichiko, Buff-chick, Junior. Eleven of these are Heavenly Commanders.
  • Lightning Glare: When bumping heads with Shimon over who is watching Rokuro for his first exploration in the magano realm at the island they use this on eachother.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Tenma is quite small for his age(19), even shorter than Rokuro, standing at 5'1". However he is the "most powerful" out of all the heavenly commanders; easily splitting mountain in half with just a wave of his sword.
  • The Rival: He is this to Shimon ever since they were children.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: When ever Tenma is fighting he uses sound effects like 'whoosh!' or 'kapow!'. In the anime he uses 'Blammo!' instead.
  • Skinny Dipping: One of Sukeno's art features Tenma swimming in a lake at night in his birthday suit.
  • Smug Smiler: In the manga, he is smiling almost constantly. In a distinctly smug manner. He also seems to like taunting Rokuro.
  • Stubborn Hair: According to Sousei's official website, all of Tenma's long haired ahoge is a result of bedhead that he can't fix.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: No sooner than his second introduction he is shown eating more than seven box's of mitarashi dango and making a deal with one of the heavenly commanders to give him a total years worth of mitarashi dango in exchange for taking out a few impurities.
  • Verbal Tic: He often says "hmmmm?" when ever he is talking.

  • Summon Magic: An expert in summoning shikigami.

  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: All he wants is to be acknowledged by his father.

Kamui
Voiced by: Yuki Ono (Japanese), Ben Diskin (English)

Rokuro's "best" friend at Hinatsuki and Benio's brother.


  • Aloof Big Brother: He states pretending to be a good brother for Benio was nothing but a source of stress and, once they reunite in Magano, declares he never once acknowledged her.
  • Bishōnen: Give him longer hair and he would likely be as pretty as his sister.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He was very nice to Benio, but states he was pretending all along. His rude behavior at Hinatsuki is the real thing.
  • Break Them by Talking: Does this to Benio in the form of a "The Reason You Suck" Speech.
    Yuuto: What are you doing, Benio? I told you everything I was thinking. If you understand, can you hurry up and disappear?

  • Eyepatch of Power: He wears an eyepatch over his left eye.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When he meets Rokuro again, he smiles a lot... to Rokuro, at least, and repeatedly alludes to their former friendship. His crazed expression shows quite clearly that it's just a facade, however.
    Yuuto: Isn't this the scene when you cry and joy and say "You were alive, Yuuto~"?
  • For the Evulz: His motivations when setting up the tragedy in Hiinatsuki Dormitory that ended up making his friend, Rokuro, traumatized.
  • The Heavy: Overall, his role, other than Abe no Seimei is pretty much driving force for the conflicts especially most of the personal ones that happens in the show like He masterminded a tragedy that ended up making Rokuro abandons his dreams as an exorcist, he works with another Big Bad of the Second Arc but backstabs him later on and so on
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: While the shows are mostly fighting an Eldritch Abomination called Impurities (Kegare in Japanese version), Yuuto manages to be the most evil and cruelest human ever appeared in the anime.
  • Love at First Sight: Inverted. While Yuuto at first find Rokuro to be the pinnacle of the person that he hates the most. However, a strange feeling began to stir him like he almost met another version of himself.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: When using his powers, his hair apparently becomes a slightly lighter shade of blue. It's only visible on color pages, though. His eyes also become yellow, which is more noticeable.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He does not take it well when Benio, whom he doesn't even consider a person, obtains the same power as him and Rokuro.
  • Walking Spoiler: His real identity, motivations, and relationships with the main characters are spoilers in themselves - just look at his entry!
  • We Can Rule Together: He attempts repeatedly to persuade Rokuro to join him as his Evil Minion.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: No one ever realized exactly how evil he was before he put his plan into motion, which resulted in the death of every children in the Hinatsuki Dorm except Rokuro and him. It also doubles as a side-effect of Power Dyes Your Hair, so his eyes are only yellow when he is being sneaky.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has light blue hair.

Hijirimaru

The fourth strongest Basara.


  • Action Duo: Higano and Hijirimaru don't actually fight together onscreen, but it's implied that they would, if Hijirimaru didn't enjoy fighting so much.

  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: It's really long, reaching his upper legs even when tied as twin tails.

Higano

The third weakest Basara, always tagging along with Hijirimaru.

Benio's familiar.

Yukari: Don't be shy~ after all tonight we skip the formalities❤.

  • Multicolored Hair: From her roots to the tips, Yukari's hair goes from a blonde to a light green color. This is passed down to Mayura as well.

  • Token Mini-Moe: Looks five years old, although the rest of the cast is at least ten years older.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light green.
