Characters

Kūgen Tenko (天狐 空幻 Tenko Kūgen ?)
Voiced by: Yukana (female), Yuichi Nakamura (male)
Kūgen is a fox deity that used to be the Guardian of the Mizuchi family. Kūgen was sealed away by a Water Priest because of her mischievous behavior. She was released by Noboru after Tōru was targeted by a demon and now serves as their guardian. She can become male or female at any time, but uses the pronoun ore ( ?) to refer to herself which is usually only used by males in Japan, though in the past females did use the pronoun as well. She attracts a fair bit of attention because of her blonde hair, blue eyes and fox ears, which have to be covered by a hat when out in public, though she can also hide them completely without a hat (they involuntarily pop out if she gets distracted or excited, though).
Noboru Takagami (高上 昇 Takagami Noboru ?)
Voiced by: Takahiro Mizushima
Noboru is the eldest son of the Takagami family. He is sixteen-years-old and was made aware that he is the head of the Mizuchi family in the beginning of the series. He is in the badminton club with Misaki Sakura.
Tōru Takagami (高上 透 Takagami Tōru ?)
Voiced by: Yu Shimamura
Tōru is the youngest son of the Takagami family. He is eleven-years-old and has strong Yin in his blood, as stated by his grandmother. This indicates that Tōru may be sought after by spirits like in the beginning of the series.
(コウ ?)
Voiced by: Saori Hayami
Kō is the sentinel of the Mizuchi family. She is sent to keep an eye on the Takagami brothers and Kūgen, and therefore must live in Noboru's house for the time being. She appears to be helpful, (having asked if she can do anything to help around the house), dedicated to her job, and does not want to be a bother. She initially is very poor with common household tasks, and is mainly proficient in combat.
Misaki Sakura (佐倉 美咲 Sakura Misaki ?)
Voiced by: Yui Kano
Misaki is a friend of Noboru's from school who tries many times to be more than friends with him. Kūgen and Kō, as well as Misaki's own imagination, get in the way of these attempts however.
Miyako Takagami (高上 美夜子 Takagami Miyako ?)
Voiced by: Yui Horie
Miyako is Tōru's and Noboru's late mother. She died before the beginning of the series. She had a friendship with Kūgen, and seemed to adore animal mascots. Ebisu states to Kūgen that her spirit has not yet passed on early in the series.
Ebisu (恵比寿 ?)
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono
Ebisu is the local deity of the area where the Takagami brothers live. He runs a convenience store close to his shrine where he has two stone imperial guardian lions, named Kōga and Eiga, which he can bring to life. He is a real god unlike a yōkai like Kūgen Tenko, so he is able to overpower Kūgen without trying too much especially by the use of kotodama since he is the most powerful in his territory. He usually seems very jovial and friendly but is extremely sharp and sly and sometimes might be harsh. He keeps note of any new yōkai that enter his domain.
