Returning Cast

Ayumu Aikawa (相川 歩 Aikawa Ayumu)
Voiced by: Junji Majima
The main male protagonist and a high school student who ended up living with three cute girls. As a zombie, he can exceed human physical limits, giving him great physical strength. Since he absorbed Haruna's mana, Ayumu also has the powers of a Masō-Shōjo. He longs for a normal life, but he has an accident where he breaks Mystletainn which causes his Masō-Shōjo clothes to disappear. His classmates believe he is a cross dresser and an exhibitionist, making him some sort of celebrity.
Eucliwood Hellsythe (ユークリウッド・ヘルサイズ Yūkuriuddo Herusaizu)
Voiced by: Midori Tsukimiya
"Eu" for short, she is a Necromancer who gave Ayumu back his life but at the cost of being a zombie and her personal guard. She is one of main female protagonists who lives with Ayumu. Since she has an immense amount of mana, she has to suppress her emotions and wear heavy armor made by Naegleria Nebiros to keep her powers under control. Her words are so powerful that she is able to kill anyone just by saying "Die". To avoid accidents, she always carries around a notepad to communicate.
Haruna (ハルナ)
Voiced by: Iori Nomizu
The second main female protagonist who lives with Ayumu. She is a Masō-Shōjo (magical/magiclad girl) but Ayumu absorbed her mana making her unable to wield transform. As she tries to figure out what to do, she gives Ayumu the role of fighting Megalos in her place and starts living with him. She is also a good cook but her specialty is always making fried eggs. She is a self-proclaimed genius, but has trouble remembering things she doesn't find interesting. Haruna appears to be jealous when other girls get close to Ayumu.
Seraphim (セラフィム Serafimu)
Voiced by: Yōko Hikasa
"Sera" for short, is the third main female protagonist who lives with Ayumu. She is a well-endowed vampire ninja who specializes in her secret sword technique: Tsubamegaeshi. She often wears her signature yellow spaghetti-strapped top that shows her midriff. She is shown to be a good violinist but doesn't play often. She is a cold person to Ayumu and constantly insults Ayumu with names when she finds Ayumu's acts perverted, but she respects him fighting abilities and has growing feelings for him, making her something of a tsundere character like Haruna.

Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto
Mael Strom (known as Yuki Yoshida at school) is another vampire ninja, though not from the same faction as Sera.

Voiced by: Aya Gōda
