Character Profiles 2020

Post by Momento10 » Sun Sep 13, 2020 2:47 am

I don't think these exist anymore, so I'll take my time writing profiles for characters that I have a decent enough knowledge of to write an original, non-wiki biography for who I think don't have anything written for them yet. Guidelines so I don't go to overboard with this:

Content guidelines:
• (*) Spellcheck before submitting. (No, honestly.)
• (*) Character profiles are supposed to be accessible to readers who know neither the series nor the character, as such: a) use as few series-specific proper nouns as possible (character names included) b) avoid spoilers beyond what is absolutely necessary to establish the character
• Any length is fine. 150-500 words is usually a reasonable limit.
• We tend to use the present tense by default, past tense when referring to flashback material and future tense when making allusions to future (or spoiler) developments.
• (*) A profiles says not only “who is she/he?” but also “why is she/he moe?”. Rather than dry facts, we want your personal take on what characteristics make the character special and moe. No point turning those profiles into a shorter wikipedia entry.

Shinomiya Kaguya (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai)
SpoilerShow
All is fair in love and war, but for Shinomiya Kaguya, love is war.

As an exceptional general and a true practitioner of things romantic, Kaguya will do absolutely everything to make sure that the boy who she claims to have no interest in admits his romantic interests to her first. No tactic is out-of-bounds for her, who has all the wealth, knowledge, and connections needed for the sake of romantic victory.

For someone who claims to be a love expert, Kaguya’s idea of love is childish and innocent. Her knowledge on romance does not go beyond first base, and her ideas of love are akin to fairy tales. Oftentimes, other people are required to teach her various terminologies in order for her to grasp the romantic conversations students have.

Kaguya is just like any other high school girl, a hopeless romantic eager to understand what it is like to have a boyfriend. However, Kaguya will never admit that. Expressing her romantic interests to someone would mean admitting defeat, and her pride will never accept that. Call it a heart condition or an unnatural disease, but she will not say she is in love.

No matter how many romantic battles she loses, as long as she wins the war, it will be worth it. And Kaguya will win this love war.
Shirogane Miyuki (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai)
SpoilerShow
There are the intelligent. There are the hard workers. And then, there is Shirogane Miyuki.

In order to relieve his family of monetary issues, Miyuki studied diligently, entering the most prestigious high school meant for aristocrats with only his grades. But, he did not stop there. After proving that he is the top student of his school in academics, Miyuki was nominated and elected as student council president, proving that hard work always pays off.

Unfortunately, no amount of academic knowledge can help him figure out the complex equation that is love. Every plan he has created is sound on paper; yet, every time he tries to implement it, outside variables prevent him from executing it perfectly. An oblivious secretary, an anti-romance treasurer, and a servant in disguise are just some of the infinite number of reasons why his plans go south.

Despite all the things that can make his strategies run amok, Miyuki is stubborn to a fault. He will never give up. He will come up with new ways to try and accommodate each and every variable, all to make a certain girl admit that she has feelings for him.

If he can just realize that he is overthinking this entire ordeal, then maybe he will realize that the solution to the convoluted love problem can be as simple as sharing an umbrella under the rain, taking care of her while she is ill, or discussing the stars with her. But, that would be too easy, right?
Fujiwara Chika (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai)
SpoilerShow
The Secretary of the Student Council. The Love Detective. The Mothering Teacher. The Harbinger of Chaos. These are some of the many titles given to one Fujiwara Chika.

Chika enjoys diving straight into delicious topics that she is interested in. Whether it is food, love, or gaming topics, Chika likes to be a part of the action wherever she goes. If she hears something within earshot of a topic that intrigues her, she will lunge at it with all of her energy.

Chika is also a perfectionist. When she sees or hears something that is even slightly concerning, Chika will do everything in her power to correct it. Whether it is singing, dancing, or sports, if she sees a student having trouble with activities she is naturally good at, Chika cannot help but push them to be at least average in the endeavor in question, sometimes to her detriment.

Perhaps her greatest asset, outside of her figure, is her blunt honesty. If she believes something is great or terrible, Chika will not beat around the bush. Whether it is discussing a person’s chance of falling in love with someone or describing a person’s positive and negative traits in full detail, Chika will not mice her words about it.

No matter where she is or what she is going, Chika will be the center of attention, whether others like it or not.
Ishigami Yū (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai)
SpoilerShow
Humans are scary, so why bother looking at them?

All Ishigami Yū wanted to do was the right thing. Had he known that he would be neglected and segregated because he tried to help someone who he believed has been wronged, maybe he would have not put in the effort to do so in the first place. However, that is not who he is.

Yū is an enigma even among the student council members, as he only appears sporadically to hand in the weekly and monthly reports as Treasurer. They know he enjoys video games and manga, strongly dislikes human interaction, and despises romance and couples, but outside when he reveals to them, they know nothing about him.

Despite how other people think and feel about him, Yū has a strong sense of justice. When he sees something that he knows is wrong, Yū will try and intervene indirectly. He will never openly admit that he helped them, for he does not want to experience that same pain again.

Until people truly see him for who he is, Yū will continue to play the part of an anti-social student. After all, that is how other people see him.
Hayasaka Ai (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai)
SpoilerShow
It’s hard wearing many hats for a girl with constant love troubles. Just ask Hayasaka Ai.

Serving the Kaguya family for a long time, Ai understands her master like the back of her hand. Ai knows exactly what is needed to make sure that her master remains as happy as possible, from distracting students so they do not interfere with her master’s time with her romantic interest or helping her run away from her strict family rules so she can enjoy life as a student.

At the same time, she is also her master’s harshest critic. Ai will honestly react and accurately predict how certain events will occur if her master is not kept in check. It is her job to make sure her master is grounded to the rules of reality and not off in her own fantasy-filtered world.

Above all else, she is her master’s best friend. She will drop her title as servant when the situation calls for it. Whether it is taking care of her when she is sick or comforting her after the student elections, Ai will always be there for her master, no matter what.

No matter what face she puts on, Ai will always remain true to herself.

Sakurajima Mai (AoButa)
SpoilerShow
If a girl in a sexy bunny costume walks around in a public area, but no one notices her, does she actually exist?

Meet Sakurajima Mai, an upcoming model and actress who has been in the business since she was a child. Intelligent, athletic, and beautiful, it is of no wonder why she has such a strong following. Because of her professionalism and talent in the business, many companies are eager to work with her to bring more eyes to her and their product.

If becoming successful was a goal of hers, Mai would have been content with her life. Yet, she knows this life is not hers. She did not make this choice. She never asked to be seen or heard. She was only doing what she was told to do, a pawn in a society filled with disdain and grudges. She cannot accept a life that is not hers.

Perhaps comparing Mai to a bunny is more accurate than others think. Like people, rabbits desire companionship; without it, they are more likely to pass away. In humanity, loneliness is both a blessing and a curse. One does not know true loss until it is too late.

With a desire to disappear, everyone slowly forgot about her. And so, she fades away, as the world moves on with her…
Azusagawa Sakuta (AoButa)
SpoilerShow
He has fallen into that dark abyss once. He does not want others or himself to feel that same pain again.

A mysterious phenomenon nearly destroyed Azusagawa Sakuta’s entire family. His sister lost all her memories. His mother became depressed. His father left him and his sister to take care of their mom. And, for some reason, there is a giant scar in chest that occasionally causes him pain, even though he never had a chest injury before.

Before he decided to give everything up, a mysterious girl decided to listen to his woes. For the first time in this never-ending darkness, there was someone who believed his bizarre story. Little by little, she mends his emotional scars, giving him the strength he needs to walk on his own again. Before she leaves, she gives him a new purpose in life: to be kinder than he was yesterday.

Now, it is his turn. Sakuta may come off as aloof or nihilistic, but he is always thinking of others and trying to find ways to help them. If no one believes the pain he or she is going through resonates with anyone, Sakuta will be that person. He wants to be the shoulder they can lean on. If there is anything he can do to save them, he will, even at the expense of his own life.

Sakuta takes a step forward with his head held high, believing that, one day, he will save someone the same way she has saved him.
Makinohara Shōko (Aobuta)
SpoilerShow
Makinohara Shōko – imaginary or real?

The legend of Shōko is a mysterious one, as she is only known by one person. According to that person, she is a high school student who should be in his school, but was not there when he enrolled. She is stated to be a kind person who always has words of encouragement for him, as though she knew exactly what he is going through.

If the legendary Shōko is supposed to be a high school graduate at this time, why is there a middle school student who shares the exact same name and a strikingly similar appearance? She does not have an older sister, yet she exhibits the same kindness and compassion the older counterpart does. She cares a lot about other people and wants everyone to be as happy as possible.

Things get more awkward when the older Shōko does appear, much to everyone’s surprise. According to her, she is, in fact, the older version of younger Shōko, and while they share the same body, the younger does not retain any memories that the older one has. Is her mischievous and playful side hiding a truth that cannot be spoken?

The mystery of Shōko deepens…
Azusagawa Kaede (Aobuta)
SpoilerShow
”Who am I? Who is the real me? Which one of us is me?”

Cyberbullying is something that should not be experienced. The words of another can have a major impact to one’s life. When Azusagawa Kaede became a victim of it, she went into a state of shock. Cuts started to appear for no reason. She started to bleed profusely. The physical, mental, and emotional scars were too much for her. And so, she chose to forget everything.

Kaede wakes up not knowing who she is or who her family members are. Everyone wanted her to remember who she is, but how can she remember if she does not know herself to begin with. Getting called a fraud is too much for her current psyche. Why is she getting blamed for something she has not done?

Nowadays, Kaede spends most of her time happily in an apartment complex with her older brother. Life is more comfortable when she is playing with her cat, watching television, or seeing videos of pandas. She is concerned that her brother occasionally brings a different girl into their house. She fears his priority to be with her is slowly falling each time another girl enters their life.

If only these peaceful days can go on forever…

Nanako Miku (5-tōbun no Hanayome)
SpoilerShow
They are different, but are one of the same.

Of the five quintuplets, Nanako Nino is the quietest of the group. She prefers not to stand out and take a backseat role in her family circle. Her sisters want her to show off her hidden beauty, but because the rest of of them are doing that for her, she feels as though there is no need for her to do so.

Ironically, observing her sister's antics from behind meant that she is able to mimic their voices, actions, and decisions to near perfection. When any of her sisters need to either get away from a situation or are too busy doing something else, they all come to her and ask her to take their position. One wig and hairpiece later, and many people fall victim to Miku's acting skills.

Because she can be anyone and everything, Miku lacks any real drive to do anything. She is interested in Japanese Feudalism and music, but, outside of her interests, she does not have any motivation to do other things. It is not as though she does not want to change the stagnant air around her; she believes there is no point in doing so.

Perhaps someone from outside of her family can add a little color in her monochrome vision in life. A little budding romance is a plus.
Nanako Nino (5-tōbun no Hanayome)
SpoilerShow
They are different, but are one of the same.

Of the five quintuplets, Nanako Nino is the strictest of the group. She has yet to accept their new tutor and will do everything in her power to get rid of him once and for all. There is no room for him in their life, and she plans for it to stay that way.

Nino is arguably the most beautiful member of her family. She takes extra care in her appearance, whether it is wearing contacts to trying out the latest trends in fashion. She is also an excellent cook, creating meals fit for restaurants. If it were not for her harsh attitude towards men, she would be the ideal girl for anyone to fall for.

Despite her sharp tongue and overly cautious personality, Nino is the most motherly member of the family. She is so accustomed to life with just the five of them that any sort of change scares her. She does not want the dynamic that they already have be tainted by any outside source, so she keeps everyone as close to her as possible.

Unless there is someone who can be a part of their lives while making their sisterly bonds even stronger, Nino will protect her family from any intruders.
Nanako Yotsuba (5-tōbun no Hanayome)
SpoilerShow
They are different, but are one of the same.

Of the five quintuplets, Nanako Yotsuba is the most optimistic of the group. She is the first person to openly accept their new tutor in an attempt to try and get better grades. Unfortunately, enthusiasm is her only saving grace, as she continues to obtain the worst grades out of her other sisters.

Yotsuba is also the purest member of her family. Everything Yotsuba says and thinks are from the bottom of her heart. She is always willing to lend a helping hand to those who need it and has a difficult time lying to others. Although people often take advantage of her kindness, Yotsuba has a difficult time denying their plea for assistance.

Behind the bright eyes and cheerful smile is a girl who seems to have the answers to everything. Because people are used to her jubilant personality, they disregard her ability to quickly read between the lines of people's words, body language, and facial gestures. When Yotsuba gets serious, others are unable to discern whether or not she is joking around or telling the truth.

Yotsuba may be kind to everyone, but perhaps she will only open up to those who are willing to accept every aspect of her, good and bad.
Uesugi Fūtarō (5-tōbun no Hanayome)
SpoilerShow
When Uesugi Fūtarō accepted the job to be a family tutor, he did not expect it to be five quintuplets.

Life as a tutor to five is not as easy as he wanted it to be. He may be academically intelligent, but when it comes to social interactions, he is clueless. It does not help that none of the girls are interested in improving their grades, and those who are interested are either easily distracted or lack the proper motivation to do so.

Fūtarō will not give up. This is not about the money he will make by tutoring all five of them, although it would help his family's financial struggle. He genuinely wants all of them to enjoy studying and, at least, have a passing grade such that everyone can move up and graduate together.

Many people believe he was naturally smart, but that is not the case. No one will believe the story now, but when he was a child, he had a very wild personality. It was only after meeting a certain girl that he studied very hard to get the grades that he has today.

One day, he wishes to see her again to show her how far he has come from when he was a child. Perhaps the girl he is searching for is much closer than he thinks...

Ishtar (Fate Series)
SpoilerShow
God's greatest gift to humanity has descended. Be grateful.

As the most beautiful goddess in all of Mesopotamia, it is only natural for people to shower her with gifts and praises. Anything less is considered sacrilege. She will hunt her nonbelievers by taking away their precious jewels...after saving their lives, of course.

Ishtar may be spoiled and braggadocios, but she is kind at heart. She is always looking out for others, whether or not they worship her. She also has a strong sense of justice, fighting for what she believes is right and destroying all that is evil.

Ishtar understands that her body is completely hers, as she was only called down as a spirit to be possessed by a human. It is difficult for her to grasp which emotions are hers and which are those of her host. Still, both agree that their thoughts and feelings are one of the same and will work together to see both of their goals fulfilled.

Be careful not to make Ishtar angry, or she will instinctively fire an energy beam at those who annoy her.
Ereshkigal (Fate Series)
SpoilerShow
She is not an evil person, so why do people treat her as the embodiment of evil?

It is not her fault that Ereshkigal was chosen to be the guardian of the underworld. No one else wanted to do it, so the title was given to her by default. Her work is not easy either, sorting all the souls that enter the underworld and judging them based on a number of criteria.

Because many people share terrible stories about the underworld for centuries, by association, Ereshkigal was considered a terrible person. To play the part, Ereshkigal transforms herself to an image other people believe her to be. By looking the part, it would solidify what other people claim she is.

For generations, no one tries to understand Ereshkigal for who she is. No one sees the beauty underneath her decayed manifested form. No one believes that she is a kind soul with a tortured heart because people blame her for something outside her control. No one tries to see the real her, so why bother showing everyone her true self?

And so, Ereshkigal remains in the underworld, guarding a location people despise going to. If no one wants to understand her, two can play the same game. She will forever close her heart from others until there is someone who will genuinely try to see her for who she really is.
Merlin (Fate Series)
SpoilerShow
He loves humanity. He hates humanity. He loves humanity. He hates humanity. He loves humanity....

Merlin's personality is best described as selective nihilism. On any given day, he would look down on humanity from atop his utopia, examining all the good and terrible things humans do to their environment and each other. Because he is immortal, the average life of a human being means nothing to him. He would rather stay away from them or any of their antics, as such impurities are unnecessary in his ideal realm.

The second humans are at the brink of extinction, Merlin descends from heaven to give them a helping hand to survive the catastrophe that would befall them. He would exert all of his reserved power if it means saving them from absolute destruction. As soon as he is done saving them, Merlin will return to his utopia and will never be seen again until another devastating situation happens to humanity once more.

Merlin's aloof and carefree lifestyle matches his personality to a fault. It is difficult to tell whether or not he is serious about anything, but when he does speak in a heavy manner, many wonder if he is joking around. Merlin will continuality confuse his allies and enemies with his laidback mannerisms, as they will forever wonder if actually cares about anything.

Merlin is everything and nothing at the same time. As long as humanity continues to survive, he will be the only one to know how he truly feels.
Kingu(Enkidu) (Fate Series)
SpoilerShow
He does not remember who he is; yet, he has memories that should be his.

For the longest time, Kingu refers to himself as Enkidu, who is supposedly a longtime friend of the great Babylonian king. He may share his exact appearance, but he has no knowledge of who this Enkidu person is. Thus, he uses his appearance to his advantage to try and break into the enemy stronghold and wreck havoc everywhere he does.

As far as Kingu is concerned, his sole alliance is to the one who summoned him into the world. If his master asked for the destruction of humanity, he will do so. If his master asks him to assist her in crafting the next generation of humans, he will do so. Everything is for the sake of his master. Without that one connection, he is nothing.

Every now and again, Kingu would recall fond memories of the past, memories that should be his, but are not his. The thought that he and his enemies were one best of friends sickens him. He should not know of this information; yet, somewhere deep within him, he knows that these memories are true. Torn between the knowledge of his past and his actions in the present, Kingu does not know who he is, what he is, and what purpose he has in his current life.

The only thing this troubled body knows that to do is fight. And so, he will continue to fight until he finds the answer he is looking for.
Karna (Fate Series)
SpoilerShow
Karna is a soldier first and a hero second.

As soon as Karna was summoned, he knew what his mission was: do what his master tells him to do and retrieve the Holy Grail. Any other thoughts and feelings are meaningless. Once his mission is complete, he will return to his ether state and wait until the next time he is required to be summoned to do the same thing again.

Many people question his way of life, but, for Karna, that is the only way to life. He already had his life, his goals, and his passions in his past life. To redo his life in this new world or redeem his mistakes from the past is meaningless. The actions of one's past accomplishments cannot be changed; therefore, it is better to live for the present than dwell in the past.

Despite his stoic and series demeanor, Karna is an honest and noble fighter. He will fight fair and square and not hold back. The fight for the Holy Grail is nothing but warlike, and it is rude to hold back against someone who is fighting for the wish-granting artifact. Karna may not have any wishes of his own, but he does have his own mission, and he will see it through until the end.

Until his last breath, Karna will keep on fighting. After al, that is his mission.

Amano Hina (Tenki no Ko)
SpoilerShow
Legend has it that, every 800 years, a weather girl will be selected to have the power to control the weather as she pleases.

By chance, Amano Hina happened to stumble upon a shrine that appeared to be untouched by the never-ending rainfall of her city. In a world where everything is dark, gloomy, and depressing, Hina sought for a chance to bring light into the world. One wish later, Hina became a weather girl.

At first, Hina saw no purpose for this power other than to brighten up her day whenever she feels hopeless. A strange encounter with an eccentric boy gave her the idea of using her power to help others. As more and more people find happiness after seeing the sunlight after so long, Hina slowly finds meaning in her daily cloudy life.

Hina is best described as a ray of sunshine. Whenever she appears, she brightens up everyone's day, regardless of the events that occurred prior to their meeting. When she fades away, the people are reminded of the reality of their dreary lives and continue to gloom about. And if she were to be truly taken away by the clouds, would there truly be anyone who is willing to break through the sky to save her, who has been alone and powerless for so long?

With a smile as radiant as the sun, Hina cuts through her cloudy life in hopes to find meaning in a world that abandoned her.
Morishima Hodaka (Tenki no Ko)
SpoilerShow
If one has nothing to lose, one might as well take a chance at anything.

Morishima Hodaka made the biggest gamble of his life when he ran away from home in order to start a new life in the big city. With no lifeline, Hodaka took a chance working at an occult publishing company. It might not be the most ideal job to start with, but it comes with room and food, even though he has to cook for himself and clean up after everyone else's mess.

Life in the city was not as cheerful and sunny as he thought it would be. Hodaka hoped that he would be part of something different and special, away from the normalcy that was binding him down. Like the city, Hodaka's views his life as a cloudy mess, the rain only reminding him of his predicament.

A chance encounter with a mystical girl may be the ray of hope Hodaka was looking for. For so long, he was nothing, a nobody, someone who's life was dictated by the whims of others. Now, he may be able to carve his own path, something he can be happy about and take pride in. That was all he wanted, something that he can truly call his own.

If only these happy, peaceful days can last forever...

Takagi (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san)
SpoilerShow
If the boy sitting net to you appears easy to tease, it is only natural to tease them.

Little is known about Takagi other than the fact that she is always one step ahead of any plan that is aimed at her. The moment she smiles is when she knows exactly what is going on and will either play or not play along with the game according to her whims. No matter if she thwarts their plans or purposely go along with it, she still wins the war, as though she has everyone wrapped around her finger.

While others lament to their failures to get the desired reaction, they do not see Takagi's intense stare. Takagi is always measuring and calculating how other people think and feel at any given moment and would react accordingly. Her observations skills are one of the many reasons why she seems to know everything that is going on around her. From the most minor of movements to the most obvious gestures, Takagi is able to catch on to a subject quickly.

They say that girls tease boys that they like. Does that statement hold true for Takagi?
Nishikata (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san)
SpoilerShow
Why does Nishikata continue to physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physiologically lose to the girl sitting next to her?

The girl next to him is so cute, popular, and friendly, she appears to be perfect student. Nishikata is unable to accept that. He will use every trick in the book to make her understand how it feels to be an average, normal person with nothing going for him and nothing to lose. There is absolutely no way that his plans to get her in embarrassing situations, plans that he came up with either minutes or days in advance, could fail.

As immature as Nishikata may be, he is also rather creative. He always has a different plan every day, each outdoing his last greatest scheme. Yet, with each disappointment comes humility. And maybe, just maybe, whenever that girl smiles at him and urges him to try again next time, he might be a little bit, just a little bit, interested in her romantically. No! That cannot be true! She is simply playing with his young, conflicting, innocent heart, and he will have none of it.

Another school day means another chance for victory. As long as Nishikata stands tall in his resolve, he will see the light to victory.

Ishigami Senkū (Dr.STONE)
SpoilerShow
Anything can be solved with the power of science!

Instead of accepting his fate and living in a perpetual state forever, Ishigami Senkū counted every second, hour, day, and year in his head until it was the proper time to break out of his shell, if possible. But he did not stop there. As soon as he was released from his petrified form, Senkū did everything in his power to figure out how he was able to escape and how he can help others escape. If anyone can figure out a way out of this situation, it would be Senkū.

Senkū had always been curious ever since he was a child. He wanted to figure out everything and do anything. Using technology as his main form of expertise, Senkū is able to craft as many things as possible in order to achieve the result that he wanted. Sure, most of the time, his inventions end up in smoke, but failure is only a extra stepping stone to the ladder of success. And when a project is able to go beyond one's expectations, one can feel truly satisfied to be a part of that experiment.

However, his upcoming science project is far greater than anything he has ever done before: restore humanity to the way it was during his time. With science and technology reverted back to its prehistoric state, Senkū must use every corner of his knowledge possible to fast forward civilization to modern times. It may take weeks, months, even years, but Senkū will not stop. He will figure something out. He will come up with as many plans as he can. And he will come out victorious.

Time is of essence. With his head held high, Senkū prepares for the greatest experiment of the century.

Tōma Kazusa (WHITE ALBUM 2)
SpoilerShow
Does the melody of her music reflect the truth within her heart?

Tōma Kazusa gazes at nothing. Her ice cold stare only sees the boredom of life and the confusion to continue to live as such. She is quiet, restricted, and nearly unapproachable. What use is it to interact with others when everyone is able to move on with his or her life regardless of the connections they have made? Maybe, she will never understand.

Add a sweet tune into her bleak outlook of reality, and Kazusa is able to truly shine. Through music, she is able to express how she feels and draws others to play the same tune she is. The sound that tickles the music room shows another side of Kazusa, someone who is expressive, kind, and warm. It is a realm where she can be at peace and forget about a world that meant absolutely nothing to her.

The world that she wanted to keep sacred was going to be shattered eventually. When one or two people attempt to enter her life, a swirl of emotions that Kazusa has never felt before drowns her. For the first time, Kazusa has felt joy and sorrow, excitement and disdain, love and lust. Her cold world of white shifts between a rose-colored wonderland and a bottomless black abyss. Perhaps all these trials and tribulations are what it means to truly live.

Touching the keys one more time, Kazusa performs her album on her journey though life as an adolescents, a friend, and a woman.

Ichigo (Darling in the FranXX)
SpoilerShow
What does it mean to be a leader? How heavy is the weight of the "Leader" title? These questions tackle Ichigo's mind on a daily basis.

For the longest time, Ichigo has always done what the higher ups informed her to do. Whenever there is a new mission, she will relay the information to her squad in order to make sure that the mission is completed successfully so that their leaders can shower them with praise. Because her number is the closest to zero, she is theoretically the strongest member of her team and the most attuned to her partner and her gear.

Indeed, she comes across as that. Out of all the squad members, she is the most strategic and level-headed of them all. No matter how difficult a situation is, Ichigo is able to make a call in the middle of the battlefield, and everyone will respect her decisions. There have been a plethora of instances where her quick thinking and dedication has helped saved her team from a number of near-death situations. Even if their mission ends in failure, as long as all of her teammates are safe, she will be content.

Despite playing the role of a stoic and composed figurehead, Ichigo is first and foremost a girl. She is prone to fits of emotion, whether it be love or jealousy. She will play sides because she favors some members of her team over others. Above all else, she wants to have fun and enjoy life as a human being and interact with her teammates as friends, not as soldiers. In a world where they were only born to fight, Ichigo wants a few minutes to enjoy her life, as she will never know when she may lose it in the battlefield.

In this fight for humanity, Ichigo will whatever it takes to win and come out alive. There is no regret, only hope for a better future.
Zero Two (Darling in the FranXX)
SpoilerShow
They call her a partner killer. They call her a monster. But Zero Two does not care.

Zero Two is an independent woman. No longer will she bind herself to the chains of authority. She will do what she wants, where she wants, whenever she wants to. The can ask her nicely or point their guns at her, but she will not flinch. She knows she is the second strongest fighter they have; they know she is the second strongest fighter they have. Making her angry will only hinder their long-term survival, so she will continue to rebel against her superiors.

Zero Two is a curious individual. Life is to short to dedicate one's entire fate to battle. There are many things in this world that she does not know about. She wants to know the composition of boys and girls and why they look and smell so different. She enjoys mixing as many sweet condiments to her meals to test if they make her meals even more delicious. She is fond of all the weird games people play on themselves or each other, why they laugh and harm each other, why they laugh at each other one moment and cry for one another the next, why even after the harshest of words were spoken, they were willing to forgive and forget.

Zero Two is human. She wants to be human. She needs to be human. These horns on her head. Humans do not have horns in their heads. She needs to get rid of them, shrink them, slice them off if she has to. Her skin is not human. She needs new pigment. She must find a way to match their skin color. Her eyes are not human. Her mouth is not human. Her blood is abnormal. She has to look like them. She needs to be with them. She longs to interact with them. Why is she not like them? Why is she so different from them? It is too lonely to not be with them.

Perhaps the most difficult battle is not against the monsters that she must face, but the ability to accept herself for who she is.
Hiro (Darling in the FranXX)
SpoilerShow
Replace the "i" with an "e" in Hiro's name, and one would understand why he has a dark and depressing outlook in life.

Hiro was different than all the other children. He was the most curious of the bunch, a self-starter, a self-thinker. In fact, it was he who thought up the idea of a naming system. By giving everyone a name instead of a number, one is able to feel extra special, as though one is finally able to own something and call it his or her own. By calling each other by name, one is able to treat each other as individuals rather than lab rats.

Then, everything changed. Hiro lost the desire to be different. He stopped thinking for himself and, instead, thought about what he could do to make the higher-ups happy. He turned into another puppet they can control to do the bidding of their supervisors. And because he had such a major influence to the children he had given names to, they all followed suit unconsciously, unwilling to accept the fact that he was what gave meaning in his or her life.

Perhaps the desire to think may have been lost, but that does not mean that it is gone forever. Little by little, his cold demeanor about life starts to warm up. He is slowly able to make his own decisions, not because they are orders from above, but because he believes those reasons are just. Somewhere deep down, he knows he and his comrades cannot continue living this way forever. There must be something out there, something that he can cling to and guide him into the light that he once lost.

Only then will his mind be clear, will his head be raised high, will he be proud to say that here he stands, living the life he chose for himself.

Platelet (Hataraku Saibō)
SpoilerShow
The greatest, most adorable form of mass annihilation is here!

The platelets are one of the most ruthless groups in the body. As soon as there is a noticeable abrasion in the system, they are on the chase to seal the wound to make sure no additional viruses enter the body. With no more waves of viral attacks, the remainder of the body's cells can destroy them to their heart's content. Then, using their charms, they bring the very cells that they assisted into their sticky bind, forcing them to spend days in the cut until it is healed.

They platelets are one of the most calculating groups in the body. They are always together, working together to make sure that the body remains functioning properly. They patch up any cell walls and assist in any roadwork, guiding cells away from any damaged areas so they can focus on their work properly. Occasionally, other's affection towards these cells will cause them to unconsciously assist them, even during their busy days of work.

The platelets are one of the cutest cells in the body. Every now and again, they will cling onto their older brother and sister cells if they in need of affection or attention. The unity they have with their cellular brethren is mighty, and they know that if they never need assistance, they can call them for help, and they will respond diligently. They may be short and small, but the work that they do to make sure the body functions properly cannot be denied.

They are the last line of defense. They can turn the tide in any war. They are the strongest members of the body's defense mechanism. They are the platelets!
Neutrophil (Hataraku Saibō)
SpoilerShow
"Antigen sighted!"

The neutrophils are the first line of defense for the body. As soon as a foreign product is identified, the neutrophils immediately give chase when it is confirmed that said substance is harmful to the body. Once the enemy has been slain, their job is not done just yet. It is their duty to consume any foreign object unfamiliar to them in order to send said information over to other members of the body so they can identify the antigen, create an antibody, and use it against the enemy should they reappear again.

Life as a neutrophil is not easy. They are on their guard 24/7, ready to strike whenever needed. When other cells do not have the means to protect themselves, they must protect them in order to keep the body safe. Every cell in the body is necessary to to keep their home healthy and happy. Therefore, the neutrophils must do whatever they can to keep each other and their comrades safe as they work together to maintain peace in their world.

While other cells are able to mingle with each other without consequence, the same cannot be said for neutrophils. They know that there may come a time where they have to confront their brethren should they become a liability to the body. When that time comes, they are not allow to show mercy. If not, there is a chance that every other cell would become infected, and their comfortable home will be in jeopardy. They cannot afford that to happen.

And so, they must fight and fight some more, all for the sake of keeping their home and the residents of said place a happy and healthy location.

Furuhashi Fumino (Bokutachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai)
SpoilerShow
"The Sleeping Beauty of the Literary Forest" is the title given to the literary genius named Furuhashi Fumino.

Like most notable reading and writing students, Fumino is able to write essays capable of causing various stirs of emotions. She is capable of reading the atmosphere and choosing her words carefully in order to transition in between emotional situations smoothly. She is also able to read between the lines of other people's conversations and internally interprets them to understand what each person truly wishes to say.

Although she is a literary analyst, she unfortunately suffers from mathematical hypersomnia, a terrible disease where she sleeps every time she sees a long, complicated equation that she cannot understand. Her body establishes a coping mechanism to offset any potential information overload by shutting down her brain and sending her off into a dreamlike state. Side effects include self-harm via clothespins and self-consciousness of appearances, such as lack of bust size or possible weight gain.

However, such a detrimental condition will not stop her from fulfilling her goals to become an astronomer. For the longest time, Fumino has admired the stars in the sky, hoping to find her late mother within the star system. The bond between mother and daughter is difficult to sever, and Fumino is willing to do anything and everything to see her dreams bear fruit.

Her words are her sword; her books; her shield. It is time to conquer the numerical dungeon.
Kirisu Mafuyu (Bokutachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai)
SpoilerShow
There once was a young girl who was an elite figure skater. She has won countless tournaments and held numerous trophies at a young age. Many had high hopes for her, believing her to do great things in her incredible life.

This is not a fairytale story with a happy ending, but a down-to-earth realistic lesson of regret. This is a story of someone who realized she cannot keep up with her dream, and the moment it all fell apart, instead to recapturing her path to glory, she abandoned it and went on for a more stable career path. The trophies to not represent the memories of happy days, but a reminder of her failure to continue to chase her dream if she had the passion to pursue it.

Nowadays, you can find her working in a high school as a teacher. Her knowledge about history is second to none, and her beauty makes both teachers and students swoon for her. Ironically, her elegance and grace in the podium does not translate in the living room, where she relaxes by wearing school jumpsuits and a majority of her wares are scattered about haphazardly, creating a fine nest for various, uninvited bugs to scatter about.

Instead of encouraging other students to follow their dreams, she wakes them up to the reality of their situation. An outstanding STEM student with terrible literary grades should not be pursuing a liberal arts career. Conversely, a talented literary student with poor arithmetic grades should not be pursuing a STEM career. They should accept where their strengths lie and pursue a career based on that. To seek something that they want to pursue and fail in the process is a pain no one should go through. It is a feeling she knows all too well.

Perhaps, this is not only a story about failure, self-loathing, and pain, but also a story of redemption, reconciliation, and forgiveness, not just for others, but for herself. All Kirisu Mafuyu has to do is open her book and turn the next page, for her story is far from over.
