Opening: "Shining™Days" by Minami Kuribayashi
Endings: "Kimi ga Sora Datta" by Aki Misato __________________ Mai Tokiha - A new transfer student to Fuuka Academy and the main heroine of the show. She has been taking care of her younger brother Takumi since the death of their parents. She hates to burden others with her problems. Her Elements are four gold rings with emerald magatama on them which float around her wrists and ankles that allow her to fly, generate flame streams, and create force fields. Her Child is Kagutsuchi, named after the Japanese god of fire.
Natsuki Kuga - Natsuki leads a double life; in one, she is just a normal Fuuka Academy student. In the other, she is a girl on a mission. She seeks vengeance for her mother's death, which was seemingly at the hands of an organization known as the First District. Her Elements are a pair of small firearms, which shoot ice bullets. Her Child is Duran, a silver and purple wolf named after the dog she had as a child.
Mikoto Minagi - A middle school student of questionable origin who was pulled from the sea by a passing ferry. She is quite attached to Mai, though her purpose for going to Fuuka Academy is to search for her brother. Her Element is a large jet-black claymore called Miroku. Miroku possesses several special powers including the ability to cut through almost any object without needing to be physically swung and the ability to summon energy blasts. It is initially assumed that the sword itself is her Child, but her Child is later revealed to be a monstrous ogre-like creature which wields a gigantic spiked club; this also bears the name Miroku.
Takumi Tokiha - Mai's little brother. His heart is weak and requires daily medication due to an accident he suffered when he and Mai were younger.
Akira Okuzaki - Takumi's roommate. She is actually a female ninja in disguise, sent by her father, the head of the Okuzaki ninja clan to observe the HiMEs. Her weapon is a double-bladed dagger. Her Child is Gennai, which resembles a giant frog. The giant spotlights on Gennai's back are used in conjunction with Akira's Element to incapacitate an enemy.
Yuuichi Tate - A member of the Fuuka Academy student council who met Mai on the same ferry that rescued the nearly-drowned Mikoto Minagi. He doesn't seem to get along with Mai, although it is clear that he cares for her at least in some way. He takes care of Shiho Munakata, a childhood friend. He was a former member of the Fuuka kendo club, regularly making it into the nationals until he was injured severely at some point in the past. In the manga, Tate is in fact the hero of the story and is the Key to both Mai and Natsuki.
Shiho Munakata - A girl who calls Yuuichi her brother (though they are not related). Shiho follows Yuuichi around but the whereabouts of her parents are unknown, assumed dead. Her grandfather owns the local Fuuka Shrine where she serves as a miko. Her Element is a flute. Her Child is Yatagarasu, a crow-like creature.
Haruka Suzushiro - The hot-headed director of the Fuuka Academy student council who enjoys an equally spicy meal. She has a tendency to mispronounce and misspell things, often as a form of comic relief. She is Yukino's best friend and Shi'zuru's rival. She often uses the term bubuzuke (rice with tea) to refer to Shi'zuru, though the first time she used it Haruka didn't even know what it meant.
Yukino Kikukawa - The secretary of the Fuuka Academy student council. She appears rather introverted and was often defended by Haruka when they were children. Her Element are mirrors through which she can see all of Fuuka Gakuen with help of the spores her Child, Diana, a plant-like creature with long vine-like tendrils, spreads. The spores act as cameras and can also generate cloaking fields. She is often correcting Haruka's mispronounced words.
Reito Kanzaki - Vice President of the Fuuka Academy student council. He has a calm attitude and is quite popular with the female students. He is interested in Mai romantically. He is later revealed to be the earthly host of the Obsidian Lord and Mikoto's missing brother. His name in Japanese is Koykyo no Kimi.
Shi zuru Fujino - President of the Fuuka Academy student council. Her cool yet inviting disposition and distinctive Kyoto accent have made her quite popular with both the male and female students. Her weapon is a multi-sectioned Naginata. Her Child is Kiyohime, which resembles a multi-headed Hydra and is an allusion to the legend of Kiyohime. Shi zuru secretly harbors romantic feelings for Natsuki.moreless
