The forbidden "Project Darkness" boots up--!!


Momo Velia Deviluke
VA:Aki Toyosaki

Third Princess on the planet Deviluke, and Lala's younger sister. Seemingly elegant and kind-hearted, but actually is pretty wicked tactician. Attracted to Rito, and starts "Project Paradise" to fulfill her romance as a part of a harem created just for him. In order for the project to progress smoothly, she transfers into class 1-B of Sainan High School.

Golden Darkness
VA:Misato Fukuen

The best assassin in the universe who came to Earth to kill Rito. An expressionless girl, but after many turns of events she ends up living on Earth. On the surface, she calls Rito her "target" but deep in her heart... Friends with Mikan, and at her suggestion transfers into class 1-B of Sainan High School. Actually an artificial organism, and can reshape her body into weapons to attack.

Mea Kurosaki
VA:Yuka Iguchi

A girl in class 1-B with Momo and Nana. Cheerful and carefree, her most charming feature is her long red braid. However, she has a mysterious side of her as well...

Rito Yuki
VA:Akeno Watanabe

2nd year at Sainan High School that is very naive about romance. Everything began when he happened to become betrothed to Lala who came from the planet Deviluke. A pure-hearted boy who even after learning that the Deviluke royal family allows polygamy, he finds himself troubled by being sandwiched between Lala's pure feelings for him and his own feelings for Haruna that he's had since middle school.

Lala Satalin Deviluke
VA:Haruka Tomatsu

First princess of the planet Deviluke. Very innocent and loves Rito, but since the Deviluke royal family allows polygamy it doesn't bother her when Rito is being amiable with other girls. Very good at inventing things, but many things she invents turn into seeds of trouble. Currently she is boarding at Rito's house.

Haruna Sairenji
VA:Sayuri Yahagi

Elegant, graceful, and beautiful girl. The classmate Rito longs for. Actually harbors feelings for Rito, but he doesn't know that. Thanks to Lala's appearance, there is somewhat of a love triangle centered around Rito, but gets along with her pretty well. At the same time, she has told Lala about her own feelings for Rito, and does acknowledge her as a rival in romance.

Nana Astar Deviluke
VA:Kanae Itō

Second princess of the royal family of Deviluke, and twins with momo. Tomboy and simple, she is very straightforward. Troubled that she has small breasts. Transfers into class 1-B at Sainan High School together with Momo. Just like how Momo can control plants to her liking, Nana can communicate with animals and have them serve her to her liking.

Mikan Yuki
VA:Kana Hanazawa

Rito's younger sister in 6th grade. In the Yuuki house where both parents aren't at home much due to work, she is a responsible child doing most of the chores. Mentally, she is more mature than Rito. Can get roped into Rito and Lala's slapstick situations, but always watches their relationship with a curious eye. You could say she is close friends with Darkness.

Yui Kotegawa
VA:Kaori Nazuka

Rito's classmate and discipline monitor. Has a strong sense of justice and is straight-laced, especially harsh on "indecent matters" but often has fantasies of that sort. Watches over Rito with hatred as he often creates sexual troubles of some sort, but also knows how kind he is and is secretly attracted to him.

Risa Momioka
VA:Ryoka Yuzuki

Haruna's friend and Rito's classmate. Cheerful and sociable, but loves to fondle girls' breasts and make lewd talk. Contrary to her appearance, she is surprisingly more like a middle-aged man who sexually harasses all the time. On the tennis team like Haruna. Senses Haruna's feelings for Rito, and sometimes speaks/acts in a way that makes fun of those feelings.

VA:Ryoka Yuzuki

Originally a space plant Lala gave Rito as a birthday present. One day it suddenly took on the shape of a young girl, and is now a mascot-type figure for the Yuuki household. With a very friendly, carefree personality, the friends at school all find her cute as well. Expresses feelings using the word "mau~". Mikan was the one that named her.

VA:Mamiko Noto

A ghost girl that died roughly 400 years ago that lives in the old abandoned building of Sainan High School. Due to a certain incident, she becomes friends with Rito and Lala. Currently possesses a man-made body created by Ms. Mikado, and works as a nurse assisting the school doctor. Very clumsy and naturally airheaded. Abhors dogs.
