     Ninomiya Unit 

Ninomiya Unit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ninomiya_unit_emblem.png
A B-Rank Unit that used to be A-Rank until a certain incident. Ranked #1 amongst all B-Rank units in border, formerly in A-Rank and part of the Expedition Force until Hatohara's unwillingness to shoot people had them removed from the latter and her later actions had them demoted from the former.

  • Almighty Janitor: Not that being #1 among B-Rank is anything to sneeze at, but again, they were demoted for reasons that had nothing to do with their actual skill level.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: The Trion forms of the entire squad are dressed in really nice suits.
  • Secret Keeper: They're in the know about Hyuse being a Neighbour, though Tamakoma was unaware of this until Inukai tricked them into revealing it first.

B-Class, Shooter
20 Years
Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe

Leader of the Ninomiya Unit, Best Shooter at Border and overall second best Combatant. Not a very kind person.

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: For all of his skill and confidence, he was still willing to beg Izumi to teach him the techniques he didn't know, according to Kitora.
  • Brutal Honesty: His central trait.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Decided to wear suits on battle because he didn't like the "Cosplay-Feeling" the normal Trion Bodies had. He failed to realize that suits were way more cosplay-like than anything. It's noted in his profile that he's somewhat of an airhead in general.
  • The Comically Serious: One of Tamakoma's most intimidating rivals during the B-Rank wars... and also a rather hilarious character precisely because of that image (see: Comically Missing the Point, Not So Above It All...).
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He can be first seen during Osamu's flashback to Rinji's disappearance, but doesn't show up until several chapter later.
  • Headbutting Heroes: With Kako, who was his former teammate under Azuma Squad. Compared to the relatively friendly way they both treat Miwa, their other ex-teammate, their own is more competitive/exasperated on Ninomiya's end.
  • Implacable Man: His way of chasing Yuzuru and Zoe during the match is something to be seen. He just doesn't stop, even blowing up the entire place just to get them.
  • Jerkass: Rude to pretty much everyone, higher ups, B-Class Agents, children, his own team, and of course the lower ranked units. Though...
  • Jerkass Has a Point: ...his critique of Osamu's plan are actually solid and just sending Yuma to a stronger squad would indeed increase his chances to go on an expedition.
  • The Leader: Of the Ninomiya Squad.
  • Not So Above It All: Seems to have taken his time in making snowmen on his match against Azuma and Kageura. It's also revealed that he actually begged for Izumi to teach him moves that he lacked, showing that he isn't as stuck-up as he seems.
    • Border Guide also reveals he gets extremely embarrassed if someone catches him doing cleaning duty on his Units Room.
    • Osamu outright states before their final Rank Wars match that he might to be way more emotionally driven than it appears because he seemed to be more affected by Hatohara's disappearance than his teammates.
  • Pet the Dog: A common interpretation of his snowmen at the end of his match is that they represent his team—in which case he made one for Hatohara as well.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: An indirect one, but he is quick to harshly pinpoint all the flaws on both Osamu carefully planned victory and on Kei Tachikawa's commentary of the battle.
  • Rule of Cool: To count, he battles in a suit, fights with his hands on his pockets, uses non-standard shapped Trion bullets, and his communicator is a fricking cellphone. Ninomiya unit sure is stylish.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: In contrast with all the other characters that seem to enjoy casual clothing while not in their Trion form, Ninomiya is always elegant. And even his Trion battlesuit is an actual suit!
  • Tsundere: Though not in the usual sense of the term. He seems to be interested in Osamu's growth, despite criticizing Osamu when meeting him, as he checks the results of their round 5 battle (against Kakizaki and Katori) after it ends (chapter 146).
    • He is also implied to still consider Hatohara a member of Ninomiya unit, such as when he makes the snowmen. There are five, which matches the number of members in Ninomiya unit before Hatohara disappeared.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His volume profile implies he used to be this (given his massive trion levels), before Shinoda tossed him into (Old) Azuma Squad, where Azuma taught him the value of strategy.

  • Bishōnen: Ninomiya Unit seems composed of this.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While he has a seemingly friendly demeanour, his actual choice of words are sometimes less so, and psychological warfare is his specialty. May explain why Kage hates him.
  • The Charmer: Can be kind to anyone and comes as quite cheerful.
  • Death from Above: Kage finishes him this way during the match.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: See Ninomiya's entry above.
  • Manchild: Very playful and gleeful like a kid. He seems to like playing with Kuroe's twintails of all things and she lets him, despite being usually antisocial.
  • The Mentor: He was Rokuro's.
  • Number Two: Ninomiya's.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Always with a cheerful grin on his face.

Voiced by: Yasuaki Takumi

  • Adorkable: Konami suggests his "innocence" makes him attractive (... albeit mainly to tease), whereas guys like Inukai are apparently unappealing.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: His Trion form.
  • Bishōnen: Same as Inukai.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: With the exception of Hatohara and Hiyami, he's an awkward mess around women, and acts as if Osamu's ability to hang out with them is an impressive feat explained by years of being trained under an imposing mother.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Uses the Kogetsu.
  • The Stoic: Very calm and collected.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: He is terrible with women besides the ones from his squad, to the point where even fighting them is difficult for him.

  • Insecure Love Interest: Extra info reveals her to be this for Karasuma, to the point where she doesn't even dare to talk to him.
  • Mission Control: As an Operator.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: Uses this hairstyle.
  • Shrinking Violet: Apparently used to be rather socially anxious, before Hatohara helped her frame it as, "Dealing with other people is so much easier than talking to Karasuma."

Voiced by: Ai Maeda

Former Sniper of Ninomiya Unit, before she apparently defected and left for the Neighborhood. Involved in the stealing of Border Triggers along with Rinji Amatori and two other people.

  • Abnormal Ammo: She tried to pull this using Lead Bullet on Sniper weapons, but lacked the Trion to make it effective.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: As it can be seen on the volume drawings, just like the rest of her team.
  • Badass Pacifist: Couldn't bring herself to shoot people, but she was capable enough to snipe their weapons.
  • Bifauxnen: Not necessarily, but she looks rather androgynous in her unit's uniform.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As she's essentially Chika's counterpart, it shouldn't come as a surprise that her motivation is revealed to be rescuing her brother.
  • Blasting It Out of Their Hands: Was able to pull this and thus managed to be useful even while unable to shooting people.
  • Heroic BSoD: The first (and only) time she accidentally shot someone, she threw up and slept for a number days following the incident.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She considered herself useless, no matter what she did.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: She could snipe the weapons out of their enemies' hands. The guidebook even lists her "Skill"-rating as the highest in all of Border, above even official #1 sniper Touma.
  • The Mentor: For Yuzuru Ema.
  • Stepford Smiler: According to Ninomiya, at least.
  • Youthful Freckles: As seen on her photo.

     Kageura Unit 

Kageura Unit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kageura_unit_emblem_5.png
A B-Rank unit led by Masato Kageura. Ranked #2 amongst all B-Rank units in Border, formerly A-Rank #6 until Kageura punching Netsuki had them demoted.

  • Almighty Janitor: Like Ninomiya Squad, them being B-Rank (even as #2) isn't necessarily reflective of their actual skill, which got them to A-Rank before. They don't seem particularly concerned about their ranking, however.
  • Foil: To Ninomiya Unit. Whereas Ninomiya Unit is formal and organized, with Ninomiya as the clear authority, Kageura Unit is extremely casual and their tactics seem to boil down to, "We'll each just do whatever the hell we want."

B-Class, Attacker
18 Years
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita
The leader of the Kageura Unit. Somewhere between the 4th and 3rd rated Attackers in strength, but officially far lower due to insubordination. Has a Side Effect that lets him feel other people's emotions towards him.

  • Blessed with Suck: His Side Effect lets him feel what other people feel about him. Problem is that he can't turn it off, so he is constantly annoyed when around people.
  • Blood Knight: Very much likes to fight.
  • The Empath: Basically his power, except limited to emotion directed at him.
  • A Father to His Men: At least where Ema is concerned. Kage treats him to meals (or at least tries to), and when people notice in the Kageura vs. Kuruma vs. Mikumo vs. Azuma match that Kage is playing things unusually safe, it's revealed afterwards that he knows Ema has a genuine stake in the rank wars now, so for Ema's sake, he's doing his best to actually win instead of just having a good time.
  • Friendly Rivalry:
    • With Yuma. After their first fight, they have no issue with hanging out just before their next match.
    • He also seems to have this going on with Ko and Arafune, as he's friends with them but also delights in seeing them get their asses kicked.
  • Glass Cannon: His fighting style. Very strong offensively, but sub-par defences for his skill level. His specialty technique Mantis reinforces this, as the use of double Scorpion means he can't use Shield at the same time.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: According to Kou, he might get angry if you look at him too much.
  • Hellish Pupils: Has feline-like eyes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Very rude overall, although Ko states he is a nice guy deep inside. Justified in that his Side Effect can make dealing with people uncomfortable for him.
  • Messy Hair: Recognized for this.
  • Noodle Incident: He once punched Netsuki in the face and thus his squad was demoted.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ko, The Stoic Nice Guy. They're classmates, apparently.
  • Scary Teeth: Sports shark teeth.
  • Telepathy: His Side Effect is a mild form of this. He can't read minds, but feel emotions directed towards him.
  • Unknown Rival: He hates Inukai. Inukai doesn't care.
  • Whip It Good: Uses paper thin Scorpion with great speed in such a way that resembles a whip, allowing him to take enemies from a larger distance than your average Attacker.

Yuzuru Ema

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4727293_ema.jpg
B-Class, Sniper
14 Years
Voiced by: Yuuko Sanpei
The sniper of the Kageura Unit. Formerly a student to Mirai Hatohara.

  • Badass Adorable: On one hand, everyone pretty much adopts him as a surrogate little bro. On the other hand, a Child Prodigy part of a top squad known for their aggressive style, and in the Kageura vs. Kuruma vs. Mikumo vs. Azuma match, where he really gets to show his stuff, he ends up being his squad's sole point-getter.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When Inukai is about to catch up with Chika—bam! An Ibis attack courtesy of Yuzuru, ultimately allowing Kage to finish Inukai off.
  • Child Prodigy: Only 14 years old and already one of the most skilled snipers of Border.
  • Cold Sniper: While on the battlefield. The text even describes him as "the emotionless barrel".
  • Combat Aestheticist: As with Tōma. Shot a star on the target instead of just shooting bulls-eyes during sniper training.
  • Crush Blush: While talking with Chika.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has his moments.
    Ema (after failing to snipe Ninomiya, who's targeting Zoe): "Zoe, good luck running away."
    Zoe: "Huh? Seriously?"
  • Face Death with Dignity: Knowing he can't escape from Ninomiya, he tells Zoe not to bother helping him. When Ninomiya inevitably catches up, he simply insults him and waits for the attack (since as a sniper, there's nothing he can do to defend himself, at this point).
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Chika, whom he actually helps to improve.
  • Friendly Sniper: When off the battlefield. He acts stoic most of the time, but is also unfailingly polite and greatly admires Mirai Hatohara for being a Badass Pacifist. He also has the cutest crush on Chika.
  • It's Personal: Seems to hate Ninomiya, most likely because of what happened with Hatohara.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: He has no idea that Hatohara went to the Neighbor world and simply believes instead that she was discharged.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Sniper.
  • Nerves of Steel: Remains as calm as ever when Ninomiya is pursuing him. And during his second match against Tamakoma, when Taichi turns off the lights and the others are caught off-guard, Ema doesn't miss the chance to snipe Osamu's arm, using the latter's Raygust as a beacon.
  • Older Than They Look: Somewhat. He's on the smaller side; Natsume admits that she thought he was younger.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: After Ema snipes Kuruma through the floor, Osamu has an Oh, Crap! moment where he realizes that he's next—at which point, as Ema says...
    Ema: "Too late."
  • Puppy Love: One of the younger members of Border, he's in the same year as Chika.
  • The Stoic: A mild version, but he isn't very expressive.
  • Tranquil Fury: Runs on this during matches.

Hiro Kitazoe

B-Class, Gunner
18 Years
Voiced by: Creator/Taketora

  • Acrofatic: In terms of flesh bodies, he places fairly high on the physical ability chart despite his size. He's more fit than most of the other 18-year-olds.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Called "Zoe" by his teammates. Also refers to himself as such rather than in first person.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Just as Hyuse and Yuma are about to kill Kage, Zoe comes bursting through a wall to help him out. Ultimately, it doesn't save either of them, but it prevents Tamakoma-2 from getting the point for Kage's defeat.
  • Big Fun: Round and always happy.
  • Defiant to the End: Played with. Once Ninomiya attacks him, he knows he is done, yet still keeps firing his bombs to help Kageura out.
  • Grenade Launcher: His weapon.
  • Know When To Fold Them: Knows better than trying to win against Ninomiya.
  • Mundane Solution: To get around Suzunari-1 turning the lights on and off, he simply destroys the lights so that they're all forced to fight in the dark. Inukai praises him for it, noting that kind of cleverness is what he likes about Zoe.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Uses Meteora to bomb the battlefield and give room to Kage to surprise attacks.
  • Taking You with Me: A method consistent in all of his on-screen matches so far. Though it's subverted in the second case: while it seemed like he was trying to take Yuma down via Meteora, it was actually to create an escape route for Kage.
  • Team Mom: Acts like one for his team, albeit in a more humorous manner. A Running Gag is him expressing pride over them "growing up" (e.g. Kage actually watching the logs for once, Yuzuru developing a crush) with tears in his eyes.
    • Does geniunely take on this role at times, too, trying to cheer Kage up after the Azuma vs Kuruma vs Mikumo vs Kageura match, commenting on his "nice escape", or complimenting Ema for his "sweet ceiling shot".
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Inverted. He used to have an aggressive and battle thirsty personalty like Kageura, but after spending time with Kuruma he changed to the fun person he is today.

Hikari Nire

17 Years
Voiced by: Yurie Kobori

  • Book Dumb: Has the worst grades of all B-Class Operators according to the author comment. But still is one of the best of them in team managing.
  • Cool Big Sis: Supplementary material notes that she wants to be this to her actual brother, to no avail. May or may not explain why she recruited Yuzuru...
  • Cute Little Fangs: Noticeably has them.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: When Tamakoma-2 is suddenly revealed to have a new member (Hyuse) just before the match starts, everyone's reactions are some variation of surprise, confusion, concern, or in Koarai's case, alarm. Nire's response?
  • Genki Girl: Always full of energy.
  • Mission Control: As an Operator.
  • Not a Morning Person: As Chika finds out when Yuzuru takes her to their headquarters while Nire is sleeping.
  • One of the Boys: She's happy to crash the all-male hangout of Kage, Ko, Arafune, Zoe, Toma, Hokari, and Yuma, at least.
  • Trash of the Titans: She is an unclean mess in the squad room.

     Azuma Unit 

Azuma Unit

A B-Rank unit led by Haruaki Azuma.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In the Kageura vs. Kuruma vs. Mikumo vs. Azuma match, when it's down to the wire, they accept they have no chance of beating Tamakoma in their current state and therefore choose to retreat, in a rare case of an on-screen match that has a squad vs. squad situation end with one side doing a full bail-out.

Voiced by: Kenji Hamada

The leader of the Azuma Unit and a veteran Sniper of Border.

  • The Ace: Has the highest overall stats out of everyone in Border, alongside Reiji.
  • All There in the Manual: Additional material states that he was the first Sniper of Border and the teacher of high-ranking agents like Tōma and Reiji.
  • Almighty Janitor:
    • It's fairly obvious that he's only in B-Rank to be a mentor and not because it's reflective of his actual skill. Due to his actual experience, he typically gets to attend the otherwise only A-Rank captain meetings.
    • It's likely that he doesn't hold a high sniper ranking, seeing as how those are decided by sniper joint training... which he seems to be in charge of and therefore doesn't take part in.
  • BFG: Uses the heavy Ibis Sniper Trigger. Not that it helps against the Rabbits.
  • The Captain: Was the captain of one of Border´s first teams, composed of him, Ninomiya, Kako and Miwa. He's also tied for #1 in command out of everyone in Border.
  • Cool Teacher: For both his partners. It's clear that he is teaching them during every match.
  • Combat Commentator: Famed of being incredibly good at this.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: It's notoriously hard to kill him in a match. In the current entire B-Rank wars season, he's been taken out only once, and that's because every other squad teamed up to get him.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: He shoots off Zoe's projectiles from far away as they are falling.
  • Infinite Supplies: Downplayed, but the author comments on how Azuma often takes the other agents out for steak... but admits that he really has no idea where Azuma is getting the money for this.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Sniper.
  • The Mentor: For all the C-Rank Snipers, and even for some of the higher up agents like Hatohara or Reiji.
    • As mentioned above he also mentored at least 4 of the current A-Rank captains in the past.
  • Oh, Crap!: As soon as he sees Kitazoe firing, he realizes the battlefield is going to turn into a mess.
  • Old Soldier: By Border standards at least. One of the first members after the Old Border period, and the first Sniper ever.
  • Secret Keeper: He's aware of Hyuse's Neighbour status and helps with keeping it hidden.
  • Strong and Skilled: He's one of two known Ibis specialists, the other being Chika. Whereas the latter can use it because in her hands it's a Death Ray (which, really, isn't going to be that much easier to dodge just because it's slow), Azuma is able to consistently use it because he can read the battle well enough to gauge when it'll successfully hit.

Voiced by: Ryota Asari

  • Affectionate Nickname: Koala, as both a reference to his name and to that one time he clung to Azuma's leg for an hour, begging him to join their squad.
  • Angst? What Angst?: In-Universe, his horrific near-capture during the second invasion didn't bother him at all afterwards, unlike Okudera who went through a relatively milder experience but became more prudent thanks to it.
  • Bash Brothers: How he fights. He and Okudera aren't that strong on their own, but together, they can fight on par with an A-Rank agent.
  • Birds of a Feather: At school, he hangs out with Satori and Taichi, both excitable and goofy like him.
  • Character Development: He's learned to be less rash and value strategy over pride. Lampshaded humorously after the Combat Commentators of the match praise this, to which Koarai grumbles that it's nice they think he's grown, but he didn't manage to accomplish anything...
  • Combination Attack: Always fights along with Okudera.
  • Idiot Hair: Blonde, on the front of his head.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Uses the Kogetsu.
  • Keet: Always full of energy, in contrast to Okudera being a step away from The Stoic.
  • Last Stand: He's known for preferring to go out in a blaze of glory, rather than tactically withdraw. When he (reluctantly) grows out of it, others take note.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Charging at a Rabit without waiting for Okudera to regroup nearly gets him captured during the invasion.
  • Red Oni: Way more proactive when compared to Okudera.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The Wise Guy to Okudera.
  • Those Two Guys: With Okudera.

The leader of the Kuruma Unit.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses a leg during his battle against Nasu, which difficulties his movement.
  • Born Lucky: Always manages to eat one of Kako's good fried rice and never one of her failures, when offered (in contrast to poor Tsutsumi, who's the other way around).
  • Character Development: After the invasion he seems to have gained enough courage and becomes very determined to bring Nasu down during the B-Rank Wars. Eventually he succeeds.
  • Decoy Leader: Not very impressive, even when he is the leader. Murakami is the true force of the Unit.
  • Deer in the Headlights: Once Lamvalein charged at him, he couldn't do anything but to stand in fear. Yoneya even thought he was acting.
  • Guns Akimbo: Part of Suzunari-1's new mid-range strategy.
  • Nervous Wreck: He's always sweating and nervous, even when not in immediate danger.
  • Nice Guy: His personality. He is so nice and good that many characters get charmed by him.
  • Taking You with Me: In his "dying" moments during the fight against Nasu and Tamakoma-2nd, he surprises everyone by launching a final attack and taking down Nasu via trion loss.

Voiced by: Hirofumi Nojima

A strong agent who is ranked 4th of all Attackers in Border, despite only being B-Rank. He has a Side Effect in which his brain's ability to organize information during sleep is vastly improved.

  • Almighty Janitor: Despite being only B-Rank and not in a top-tier team, he's one of the best in Border. It's widely agreed that his team is holding him back, or that he's at least the one carrying them.
  • Barrier Warrior: One of the few Raygust specialists, with his primary role in the third invasion being to defend the hangar from Gatlin's BFG.
  • Blessed with Suck: How he used to feel about his Side Effect, referring to it as him "stealing other people's efforts." Arafune setting him straight and Kuruma telling him that when it really counts, everyone is grateful for his strength rather than annoyed, seems to have changed this.
  • BFS: Using a Raygust Trigger.
  • The Dreaded: For B-Class Agents, at least, because of his Side Effect.
  • Dual Wielding: Raygust and Kogetsu.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: All the time.
  • Friendly Rivalry:
    • While he doesn't actively help Yuma via teaching him any new tricks or whatnot, he assists him in preparing for his fight against Kageura Squad despite having just lost to Yuma, in what cost his team the match.
    • He also seems to have this going on with Kage and Arafune.
  • Heroic Ambidexterity: He wields both Kogetsu and Raygust at the same time, switching whichever to his dominant hand depending on whether he's in offensive mode or defensive mode.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Not the leader of the squad but easily the strongest member.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Surprisingly, he cries like this.
  • Instant Expert: His Side Effect turns him into this, becoming quickly stronger after facing any opponent and memorizing his moves.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Uses the Kogetsu.
  • Last-Name Basis: Despite him and Arafune being close enough to be on a First-Name Basis, Murakami prefers to call him by his last name—because, apparently, he just thinks it's a cool-sounding name.
  • Lonely at the Top: Not really at the top, but people tend to abandon him because of his overbearing Side Effect which makes him superior in pretty much everything after a while.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Uses Raygust as shield.
  • Morph Weapon: Raygust.
  • Nice Guy: On the inexpressive side, but he's generally a fairly polite and respectful guy who was even hesitant to take advantage of Yuma's cluelessness about his Side Effect at first.
  • Not So Stoic: Breaks into tears when he believes Arafune quit because of his ability. He also has a rather expressive smile/laugh, though it's rarely seen.
  • Odd Friendship: With the hot-headed, violent Kage.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: To Yuko Kumagai: "I can't afford to be defeated by improvisation."
  • The Quiet One: Not very talkative.
  • Samurai: He gives off this impression, as lampshaded in his volume profile.
  • The Stoic: Always keeps his calm in contrast to his leader.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: Traps Yuma via throwing Shield Raygust at him.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: His role in the second invasion, where he holds off several Rabits on his own to prevent them from going after anyone else.

  • The Klutz: According to extra material, he accidentally killed Kuruma's tropical fishes when trying to adjust the aquarium's temperature. Despite loving these fishes, Kuruma quickly forgave him, earning him the clumsy boy's respect.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: When he detects an incoming attack from Nasu, he shoves Kuruma out of the way, at the cost of his own "life".
  • Long-Range Fighter: Sniper.
  • Nice Hat: A cap with earmuffs.
  • Tempting Fate: After trying to snipe Nasu. Oh, it's fine, Nasu can't see him in this rainy weather... right? Cue Viper.
  • Walking Disaster Area: Played for laughs. Everything he touches breaks since he is such a mess.

  • Abnormal Ammo: Viper bullets.
  • Badass Boast: Said after both her partners are defeated. "I'll have to take care of this side myself."
  • The Dreaded: Enough that the Kuruma Unit put special attention on bringing her down. She held her own against three enemies during the entire battle.
  • Girly Run: On the battlefield.
  • Ill Girl: When not fighting, she seems to just lay there in bed with some kind of illness.
  • One-Man Army: Her Badass Boast above? It's just short of being reality, and only because Chika stayed outside of her range.
  • The Power of Friendship: Greatly values her teammates.
  • Proper Lady: Even her way of running is very feminine.
  • Signature Move: She uses Viper to create a jail of shootings that limites her enemies movement.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: At first appears as a bed-ridden ill girl. She proves to be very powerful on the battlefield.

     Suwa Unit 

Suwa Unit

A B-Rank unit led by Kōtarō Suwa.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Suwa and Tsutsumi are typically the agents who control the simulation area, which comes in handy when they're coincidentally among the few squads in HQ ready to deal with Enedra.

  • Awesome by Analysis: Downplayed, but after watching Hyuse fight a few rounds and reading his moves, he does well enough that he's the first to get a single win against him.
  • Character Development: Seems to have developed a calm personality in comparison with before if Hokari is to be believed.
  • Close-Range Combatant: The Suwa Unit works as this, but he is especially one since he is an Attacker.
  • Exact Words: Played for Laughs, and unintentional on his part. He tells the other B-Rank Attackers that he'll avenge them and get a win back from Hyuse for them... and he's right. He gets a win—but only a single win.
  • Invisibility: Uses the Chameleon Optional Trigger, which allows temporary invisibility.
  • Know When To Fold Them: Retreats against Enedora, which in turn makes him useful in the next battle and allows for a good distraction. He also knows he is no match for Arafune and doesn't seem to be very torn up about it.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Hokari.
  • Youthful Freckles: On his face.

     Arafune Unit 

Arafune Unit

An B-Rank unit led by Tetsuji Arafune. It's formed entirely by Snipers (not counting the operator).

B-Class, Sniper
18 Years
Voiced by: ???

The leader of the Arafune Unit.

  • Badass Cape: Notable as he uses Bagworm to hide a Kogetsu during attacks.
  • Cold Sniper: Calm, collected, and good at sniping.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Kage and Ko.
  • Graceful Loser: He admits that he was shocked when Ko quickly surpassed him, but otherwise he doesn't mind, despite rumours that he quit being an Attacker because of this. As Osamu notices, the two of them act too friendly around one another for the rumours to seem credible.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He was a rather high-ranked Attacker before switching to Sniper. Thus he still carries a Kogetsu to defend himself in close combat.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Uses the Kogetsu.
  • Master of All: What he wants to achieve.
  • The Mentor: He was Ko's.
  • Nerves of Steel: Nearly everyone in the series has these to an extent, but special mention goes to Arafune: most people take a moment to recover from the chaos that results from Chika's "cannon", but despite suffering from severe trion loss already, he immediately takes the opportunity to return fire and snipe her before bailing out.
  • Nice Hat: A cap.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives an amicable one to Murakami, to take him out of his depression due to Arafune quitting as an Attacker.
  • Rule of Cool: The author jokes that he acts like he's from a Hollywood action film (e.g. flashily jumping out of buildings).
  • Super Drowning Skills: He can't swim. Like, at all.
  • Sword and Gun: Can use a Kogetsu in close combat in addition to being a Sniper.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is less than thrilled of having to face the Dog Neighbor Soldiers since he is afraid of the real dogs. This however doesn't stop him from chopping one in half with his Kogetsu.

  • Compressed Hair: His hair is saiyan-like, through his cap manages to contain it.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Known for his precision, which Suwa turns against him during the Arafune vs Suwa vs Tamakoma-2 match. He ranks 4th for his skills according to Border Briefing Files, behind only such top snipers as Hatohara, Touma and Narasaka.
  • Nice Hat: A cap, same as Arafune, but he wears it backwards.
  • The Slacker: Somewhat played with. He is always complaining about having to train or fight, yet the author comments reveal he takes his training and job very seriously and gives his all, so it's mostly a facade.

  • I Shall Taunt You: Taunts Hisato Sasamori when he comes for the kill, noting the fact that they didn't trust him enough to take down Arafune. Hisato doesn't mind.
  • Jerkass: While he is probably a decent guy, he is quick to make an ill remark about Zoe´s weight and taunt Hisato for a chance to win. Though in the latter case, he and Hisato are actually good friends, and his profile notes there was a deleted scene where he later texted an apology, with Hisato responding with a friendly jab.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: Speaks in anastrophe more than a few times.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Revealed by the author to be extremely cheerful and expressive on cellphone conversations. Not so much in face to face conversations.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Hisato.

     Katori Unit 
A B-Rank unit led by Yōko Katori.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Just because this squad wasn't already enough of a mess, Miura likes Katori, who likes Karasuma. Rokuro likes Somei, who likes Arashiyama.
  • Childhood Friends: Despite what their constant arguing might have you think (or, alternatively, this explains why), they're one of the few squads who are confirmed to have known each other beforehand: Katori and Somei are conventional Childhood Friends, Miura and Somei are cousins, and Rokuro is a friend of Katori's brother.

Yōko Katori

Voiced by: ???

The leader of the Katori Unit.

  • The Ace: A deconstruction of sorts. She has a lot of talent, but no capacity to work hard on anything and as such she ends up being awful during teamwork based battles.
  • Berserk Button: Being reminded of Kako not picking her for her teams seems to upset her greatly.
  • Childhood Friends: With Hana.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: Wears some dog-ear looking things on her hair.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: A believer of this, going as far as her talent lets her and then droping the activity alltogether when she cannot do more. It is like that that she became an All-rounder.
  • Hime Cut: Uses this hairstyle.
  • Jerkass: Doesn't have the best personality and it causes trouble within the team.
  • Multicolored Hair: Has dark highlights on her hair.
  • Master of All: As an All-Rounder.
  • Teeth Clenched Team Work: With Rokuro, as they both seem to get into fights pretty much every time they argue.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Underestimates both Yuma and Kakizaki Squad, through her companions aren't that condescending with their new rivals.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Combined with shorts.

Hana Somei

B-Class, Operator
16 Years
Voiced by: ???

  • Abusive Parents: Her father didn't even let her leave her room unless her notes were top tier. And even when they die after the first invasion, Hana doesn't seem that much conflicted about it.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her style.
  • Childhood Friends: With Katori.
  • Fingore: Her nails got ripped during the first invasion while saving Katori from the debris.
  • The Leader: Although Katori is the official leader of the unit, Somei is the one who actually leads and coordinates the unit, as Katori always takes the lead and cannot cooperate with her teammates, especially Wakamura. Somei is also always breaking up Katori and Wakamura's fights, as they never listen to Miura.
  • Megane: Wears glasses.
  • Mission Control: As an Operator.
  • Nerves of Steel: As a child, she dug to save Katori from the debris with her hands all cut and her nails ripped off, all of this while knowing her family was dying. She took the most plausible course of action without flinching.
  • The Spock: To Katori.
  • The Stoic: Seems to be rather calm compared to the rest of her unit.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Zaki.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Seems to have some self-esteem issues regarding his skills as a leader or a PR agent.
  • Master of All: As an All-rounder.
  • Nice Guy: So far he seems to be this to everyone.
  • Old Soldier: One of Border's first members after the Old Border period. Unlike the others, he's no superstar, making it little wonder he has self-esteem issues.
  • Sincerest Form of Flattery: He clearly looks up to Arashiyama, and his Unit is suspiciously similar in settings to Arashiyama Unit too.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts to pull this on Yuma before going down during their match.
  • Team Spirit: His strategies tend to go on this. Kakizaki unit usually moves together during battle.

Voiced by: ???

  • Asskicking Pose: Likes to pull these while facing the camera everytime he defeats an enemy.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: From calling every girl he meets cute, to facing the camera while getting points and his overall appearance, he is not a very down to earth guy.
  • Comically Missing the Point: While Osamu and Ōji were discussing strategies with their units for the battle between the three units... Ikoma was discussing about cute girls and the new cafeteria menu.
    • When Kurauchi defeats Minamisawa, making Ikoma Unit the first to lose an agent, Ikoma is concerned, not because they lost an agent, but because they lost their charm of being a four-member unit.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: As shown on his Trigger setting, he seems to rely solely on being an expert using Senkū Kogetsu.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory!: During a Kogetsu only match against Hyuse, where he slices him in two using Senku out of being so accustomed to just playing like that in battles. He promptly says he is really sorry about it.
  • Face of a Thug: Which is the reason he doesn't want to attack Chika, since he thinks it'll make him unpopular with girls.
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: He can draw Kogetsu in 0.2 seconds, a record for Border.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Uses the Kogetsu.
  • The Leader: Of his Unit.
  • Perpetual Frowner: His face looks like this, though he seems a rather calm individual.
  • Sinister Shades: Wears them during battle.
  • Sword Beam: An expert in using Senkū.

  • Genki Boy: Very upbeat.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: This is clearly the case with him, as the first warning he gets before the match is to not go alone against Yuma. He still does that and as such gets eliminated early.

  • Calling Your Attacks: Played with. He keeps shouting wrong names for the Triggers he uses to confuse enemies. Having fighting against him for so long, Ouji Unit doesn't fall for the trick, but Yuma does.
  • Homing Projectile: Hound.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: He barely seems amused when Ouji cuts off his head. Justified in that Trion bodies dont necessarily feel any pain.
  • Messy Hair: Which resembles Tai´s from Digimon Adventure.
  • Sinister Shades: Has the same kind of shades Ikoma does.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Uses Meteor.

  • Beauty Mark: On his cheek.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He says he couldn't bring himself to shoot Chika because she invokes this in him (and, when asked, says that Akane is the same). Toma suspects it's just him trying to save face over losing to her.
  • Chick Magnet: According to Ikoma, though he denies it.
  • Long-Range Fighter: A Sniper.
  • Nice Hat: A visor cap.
  • Only Sane Man: Easily one of the more down-to-earth members of his team.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Played with. He declares he is going to harden his own heart to strike down Chika, but doesn't seem to have any real problems doing it. This is probably because it's just a competitive match.

  • Unfriendly Fire: A non voluntary version. They shoot Yuma, recognizing him as a neighbor, without knowing he was part of Border already.
