Rosario Vampire

Read manga

By a bizzare coincidence, Tsukune Aono has accidentally gotten himself admitted to a youkai acadamy, a school attended by monsters (youkai). Just when he thinks he`ll run away from there, he meets the beautiful girl Moka and his mood turns ultra happy. However, she transforms into her true form when the rosary on her chest is taken off, she`s a super vampire!

By Akihisa Ikeda (Rosario Vampire)

Main Characters

Tsukune Aono
Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio
The male protagonist of the series, Tsukune Aono is mistakenly enrolled in an academy for monsters. He soon meets Moka Akashiya, a vampire who takes an interest in him, due to the sweet taste of his blood (an ongoing gag that occurs throughout the series). Fearful for his life and ready to leave the school, it is only his affection for Moka that gets him to continue attending Yokai Academy. Though he has no special powers of his own, he constantly attempts to protect his friends with his own life. Later on, he acquires vampiric abilities, then ghoul-based powers (the latter of which puts his humanity in jeopardy), allowing him to fight toe-to-toe with almost any supernatural foe.

Though ordinary and often cowardly, Tsukune's willingness to protect his friends thoughtlessly earns him many new companions and the affection of the girls surrounding him. He is also soft and understanding, and displays great courage when his friends are threatened.

Moka Akashiya
Voiced by: Nana Mizuki
Moka Akashiya is the first person Tsukune meets when he sets foot in the yōkai realm. Exceptionally sweet and kind, Moka is a vampire, and takes a liking to Tsukune, after ingesting his blood, and becomes addicted in doing so. When the rosario around her neck is removed, the seal keeping her true nature is released. Cold and arrogant, the inner Moka is a completely different entity from the kind-loving Moka, going so far as to specifically remind Tsukune to "be kind to the other Moka".

It is revealed in an omake she loves tomato juice, but prefers Tsukune's blood.

Newspaper Club

Kurumu Kurono
Voiced by: Misato Fukuen
Kurumu Kurono is a succubus, and is initially jealous of Moka's popularity overshadowing her own. She tries to seduce Tsukune and the male student body, using her charming techniques (through her succubi abilities, including her busty physique), making them her slaves. This is so she can find her "mate of fate", in order to save her diminishing species, with the assumption that Moka is blocking her path. After Tsukune persuades the unsealed Moka to spare her, she becomes infatuated with him and makes a decision that he will be her "mate of fate", becoming friends with the pair. Described as a tough character, Kurumu sports a pair of bat wings, tail and razor-sharp nails in her true form, and has notable body strength (seen when carrying people during flight). Also, as the manga and anime continue, Kurumi's succubi powers become stronger and her powers over men become stronger as well. The use of illusions and reality-bending techniques make up for her lack of combat abilities. Kurumu also carries a unique, innate sense of knowing when danger might occur. As of the second manga serialization, she is learning basic witchcraft.

In an omake, Kurumu reveals she has a serious weakness for sweets, to the extent that she once ate poisoned cookies she made and planned to give to Moka. Kurumu's mother is Ageha, who appears during the start of the school festival.

Yukari Sendo
Voiced by: Kimiko Koyama
Yukari Sendo is one of the smartest students at Yokai Academy, and the youngest at age 11. Yukari is a witch, and always wears a typical witch costume (which consists of a hat and cape), though considered by some students to be a violation of the school rules. Despite ranking #1 on the examinations, she was a lonely prankster before meeting Tsukune and Moka. She initially hates Tsukune, claiming to have fallen in love with Moka, and uses her magical powers to try to drive them apart. However, after both Tsukune and Moka save her from bullying classmates (who were actually lizardmen), she falls for him too. Her obsession with both has driven her to try to create a three-way relationship between them. Yukari has, on occasion, developed some bizarre items, often leading to hilarious results or farfetched situations.

As a witch, she has problems with her classmates discriminating against her. In the series, witches are viewed as "border beings", those that are something between humans and the supernatural, as it is impossible to tell their difference by appearance alone.

Mizore Shirayuki
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya
Mizore Shirayuki is a yuki onna. Keeping in line with Japanese mythological creatures, she has the ability to control the element of ice at will, and can form clones composed of the previously said element. Frequently seen with a lollipop in her mouth, Mizore returns to school after a delayed absence and shows an immediate interest in Tsukune. In truth, she becomes infatuated with him, going so far as to create her own journal / scrapbook with all of his newspaper articles. She once confessed to a teacher she liked him, until he began to take advantage of her, thus she froze him. With the incident and rumors spreading about her, Mizore made it hard for herself to trust anyone, but took a liking to Tsukune, believing he was just as miserable as she was. She eventually warms up to the others, after Tsukune intervenes when the same teacher returns to kill her. Unfortunately, Mizore begins stalking Tsukune on a daily basis.

A running gag in the series is that Mizore always appears unexpectedly in the oddest locations (under tables, behind doors, the ceiling, bushes, even in the bathroom), and throws ice-based projectiles to disrupt any sort of tender moment Tsukune is having with any other girl. Mizore's mother is Tsurara, who appears during the start of the school festival. Like her daughter, she is very shy and serene, including the tendency to hide behind corners and what appears to be lollipop in her mouth.

Ginei Morioka
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki
The president of the newspaper club, Ginei Morioka is a werewolf. Commonly referred to as "Gin", this shameless peeping tom began as an antagonist to Tsukune, but becomes somewhat of a senior to him and his friends. Though he ceases his schemes (so other students will stop calling him a pervert), his affections lie with Moka, although the love is entirely one-sided, and still has not given up on her (it should be noted he has no second thoughts about trying to impress other girls). While working in the club, he tends to leave all the work to his subordinates, including the distribution of the paper. Ginei proves himself a loyal friend and has provided the group with helpful information, often acting as the comic relief.

As a werewolf, when a full moon shines brightly, his abilities are heightened to the point where his speed exceeds Moka in her super-vampire state. While werewolves in general are stated to have their power wax and wane with the lunar cycle, it is unknown if all werewolves receive this much of an increase. Regardless, Ginei is still exceptionally fast, even when the moon is not full.

In the second manga serialization, it is revealed he is Kurumu and Mizore's sparing instructor. However throughout their sparing he would use that to satisfy his perverted nature.

Ruby Toujyou (Dojo Rubi)
Voiced by: Saeko Chiba
A witch from the human world, Ruby Dojo was part of a plot to destroy mankind as a response to a large garbage dump that was polluting her master's sanctuary. Her hate for humans stems from a car accident that took her parents' lives. After receiving help from Tsukune and his friends from a fight, and remembering the kind of love her parents had given her, she attempts to persuade her master to call off her plan, but to no avail, as her master was bent on destroying the human world. Ruby reappears when Tsukune becomes out of control in his ghoul-state, and helps the exorcist in sealing his abilities. She now resides at Yokai Academy, as the board chairman's aide and continues to work for him in the second manga serialization. Despite not being an official student, she receives permission to become a member of the newspaper club.

In an omake, it reveals the main reason Ruby works under the board chairman is her infatuation with Tsukune, and by working at the academy, she could be near him. The anime omits the presence of her master, drastically changing the events surrounding her.

Kokoa Shuzen
Introduced in the second manga serialization, Kokoa Shuzen is the younger half-sister of Moka Akashiya. Bearing a similar appearance to Moka, except for her orange hair and cyan eyes, she arrives as a first-year student to Yōkai Academy. Like her sister, Kokoa is also a super-vampire, but her powers are not sealed and does not carry the same supernatural strength Moka possesses. To compensate for this lack of power, she has a pet bat, Kou, that can transform into a variety of weapons and wields it with enough strength to make herself formidable.

Kokoa despises Moka for sealing away her inner personality, whom she adores and loves. Before Moka left to study at the academy and prior to her receiving the rosario, the sisters often clash with one another, although Kokoa could never defeat her in a duel. She constantly attacks Moka, in hopes of drawing out the "inner Moka" and feels slightly angry that Tsukune has the ability to unlock Moka's true nature. She begins to begrudgingly accept the presence of Moka, and though she does not like her, she is quite fond of being around Tsukune. Like her sister, she develops a craving for Tsukune's blood.

According to the anime's official site, Kokoa will be featured in the second season of the animated adaptation.


Shizuka Nekonome
Voiced by: Kikuko Inoue
One of the many school teachers at Yokai Academy, Shizuka Nekonome is also the advisor for the Newspaper Club. A neko-musume (cat lady), she is rather carefree in her attitude, and somewhat oblivious to certain things. The omake reveals she likes to eat raw fish, but specifically, goldfish. Her animated counterpart does not seem to show any hatred towards humans, unlike the rest of the teachers in the school. This is particularly shown prior to Tsukune's execution incident, when Shizuka worries about his fate and argues how the school was built to promote human relationships with yokai.

Ririko Kagome
Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa
Ririko Kagome is a teacher at Yokai Academy, specializing in mathematics. Seemingly innocent and deeply concerned for her students' grades, she offers private lessons to anyone willing, though at a price. In the dark recesses of her chambers, she becomes a lamia, with the head and torso of a beautiful woman, but the body of a serpent, and uses her abilities to drain students' emotions in exchange for knowledge. She also seems to have a fetish for S&M outfits. Ririko is only lascivious to males, while any girls that need lessons are made to dress up in maid outfits and serve her tea, albeit in an embarrassing way. It is important to note that unlike other antagonists, Ririko is not inherently evil, but rather very passionate about the education of the academy's students.

Ishigami is the art teacher at Yokai Academy, and is the legendary Medusa. Her braided hair is a stand-in for the snakes of a gorgon, whose bite can instantly turn its victim into stone. Ishigami has a desire to turn any attractive female student into stone, but is stopped by Tsukune and Moka, resulting in her immediate sacking from the faculty. Ishigami returns, secretly informing the Student Police Committee of Tsukune's human nature, but immediately leaves the scene when the head of the Student Police is soundly defeated.

In the final chapters of Series I, Ishigami reveals it was she who gave Kyouko, Tsukune's cousin, the Lilith Mirror, with the intention of stealing his soul, with the added bonus of releasing all the students into their monster state, through the powers of the artifact, to create an uproar that will destroy the school, stating how death and destruction is the purest form of art. Ishigami is defeated a second time and arrested.

Board Chairman (Exorcist)
A mysterious exorcist, who has a connection to the bus driver, he is always seen hooded beneath his garments and possesses extremely strong, anti-demonic powers, having the ability to seal Tsukune's ghoul nature with the Holy Seal of Judgement.

The chairman is, in fact, one of the three Dark Lords, the creators of Yōkai Academy, and the ones who placed a barrier separating the human world from the supernatural world. He is also aware Tsukune is human, but allows him to stay at the academy in exchange for certain favors and tasks, which includes rooting out members of ANTI-THESIS.

Student Police
A group of enforcers on school grounds, charged with protecting the academy, these corrupt members use their status to their advantage. Anyone who oppose them are delivered swift punishment through methods of imprisonment and torture. They have a long standing rivalry with the Newspaper Club.

Voiced by: Ikeda Shuichi
Head of the Student Police Committee, Kuyou enforces the group's rules with an tyrannical, iron fist. He is a kitsune, with many fire-based abilities, and can take on a hybrid form between his human and yōkai appearance.

Ordered by Kuyou to keep an eye on the Newspaper Club (to make sure it wasn't doing anything the Student Police considered "illegal"), Keito is a spider-woman. Her animated incarnation places her in charge of a rival "super newspaper club" which would have replaced the current one. Keito also has 3 underlings, made servants by her venom, to which she also wanted to add Kurumu into her clique.
