Raishin Akabane ((あかばね) (らいしん) Akabane Raishin?) is the main male character of the Unbreakable Machine-Doll series. He is a Japanese puppeteer from the Akabane Clan; the elder son of Akabane Clan Head and Akabane Clan Head's Wife, the younger brother of Tenzen Akabane and the elder brother of Nadeshiko Akabane and is one of, or if not, its only surviving member. Raishin was offered by Shouko Karyuusai a wager of a chance to exact his revenge on Tenzen in exchange for his body if he failed and wherefore Shouko chose to lend Yaya as his automaton due to their compatibility and enlisted him into the Japanese Army. He then had Shouko mediate for him to be assigned by the Japanese Army of being sent to the United Kingdom to enter the Walpurgis Royal Academy of Machinart and join the Night Party to spy on the latest Machinart developed by major world powers; however, in actuality, he took the job to be able to exact revenge on Tenzen whom he assumes of having killed their clan and of being Magnus. Raishin was admitted into the Academy as a second year student and was originally supposed to receive the transfer admission test results of being in the 1236th out of the 1236, or the last place, but since August Veyron passed his test papers blank, he then placed to the 1235th out of the 1236, or the second to the last place. In the Facing "Cannibal Candy" Arc; during the Cannibal Candy incident, he temporarily became an assistant to the Academy's Disciplinary Committee after Felix Kingsfort made a deal with him of assisting the committee of hunting and defeating Cannibal Candy in exchange for an Entry to the Night Party and after defeating Felix and being rated in Machinart battle only, he was placed to the 100th seat, becoming a member of the Gauntlets, whereby Kimberly gave him the registration code of Second Last (下から二番目(セカンドラスト) Shita Kara Ni-banme (Sekando Rasuto)?, lit. "Second from the Bottom"), thus becoming known as by it, and after the Cannibal Candy incident, he received a defensive amulet from Charlotte Belew as a present for helping her during the Cannibal Candy incident. Raishin is one of the candidates foreseen by Father Time. He was arranged to be married to Hinowa Domon by his parents.



Raishin ((あかばね) Raishin?)'s Japanese kanji is the compound of Kaminari ((かみなり) Kaminari?), meaning "thunder", and Shin ((しん) Shin?), meaning "truth". Akabane ((らいしん) Akabane?)'s Japanese kanji is the compound of Aka ((あか) Aka?), meaning "crimson", and Hane ((はね) Hane?), meaning "wing".

Second Last

Second Last (下から二番目(セカンドラスト) Shita Kara Ni-banme (Sekando Rasuto)?, lit. "Second from the Bottom") is the epithet Kimberly addresses Raishin due to him receiving a rank of being in the 1235th out of the 1236. After the Cannibal Candy incident, she made it his registration code without his consent and therefore made him officially known as by it.


Raishin is a young boy, with an oriental charm, who has a fair complexion, a sharp and angular shape small built body, and an average height. He has short straight unkempt layered black (dark brown) hair and has black eyes (with bluish undertones), with a sharp glint, that are as sharp as an eagle's. Raishin wears a gold buckled dark brown strap strapped on each of his shoulders connecting onto a gold circular buckle at the centre of his back, a gold buckled dark brown arm band strapped on his right arm and a worn out of shape military issued gold circular buckled brown harness strapped around his hips together with a student uniform composed of a tailored open standing collared single-breasted black waistcoat fastened with three small gold buttons vertically lined at his left over a tailored open collared long sleeved white dress shirt, with grey cuffs, a pair of greyish brown trousers, and a pair of black laced brown shoes. He has a student formal cloak which he was seen wearing during the Night Party's opening ceremony. In the anime, the student formal cloak is a high collared black coat that is horizontally lined below his shoulder level with a gold stripe and has a gold trimmed collar, gold trimmed military shoulder straps, and a grey vertical trimmed enclosure, with two gold buttons parallel on each of its side below the stripe. In the manga, the student formal cloak is a coat that has a trimmed collar, military shoulder straps, a vertical trimming at each of its sleeves, cuffs, and a vertical trimmed enclosure, with two unfastened buckled belt straps.

After defeating Felix, Raishin was qualified into the Gauntlets, and as a qualifier, he wears a pair of pearl-white (dark brown) first-class silk fingerless gloves, that shimmers with a brilliant lustre under the light, with a diamond-like shape opening and a crisscross strap detail on its top, fastened at its cuff with a gold snap. On the cuff of one of his gloves are the words, [Second Last], in a refined calligraphic script, woven with beautiful gold thread.

Raishin's sleepwear is a white yukata that is vertically lined with a single black stripe design at its left tomoeri and a huge single black stripe design at each of the bottom of its sode and has a light green and white stripped heko obi wrapped around his waist.

Whenever Raishin is hospitalised, he wears a hospital outfit. In the anime, the hospital outfit is composed of a white robe top fastened with a small ribbon at his right, a pair of white trousers, and a pair of white slippers. In the manga, the hospital outfit is composed of a robe top fastened with a small ribbon at the right side of its collar, a pair of trousers, and a pair of slippers.

During the time a younger Raishin was kicked out of his clan's estate, in the anime, he wore a grey jinbei, and in the manga, he wore a scarf around his neck, a haori over a kimono, with a hakama, and carried a covered katana.

During the night of the Akabane Clan’s massacre, in the anime, a younger Raishin wore a grey jinbei, and in the manga, he wore a kimono, with a hakama.

Raishin wore a coat, in the manga, during the time he was in London until the time he travelled to Liverpool, and in the light novel, during the time he travelled to Liverpool.

In the light novel, in volume 6, Raishin wore a jacket, and in volume 0, he wore an army green Japanese Army uniform.

During a fireworks festival, in the anime OVA 4 and in the light novel short story, Facing "Angelic Element" Ⅲ, a younger Raishin wore a cherry blossom designed light blue yukata that has a blue obi wrapped around his waist, and in the manga, he wore a yukata that has an obi wrapped around his waist.


Raishin is an audacious person who boldly makes his choices and courses of actions. He often swiftly makes a decision and often swiftly refuses whatever is offered to him. Raishin is an acute observer who is always keen of his surroundings, even such as a person's underlying motives or a situation's ulterior consequences, but nevertheless plays along with it, and is always cautious of it, assaying and validating it beforehand before completely involving himself with it, and especially if he finds it queer, becomes dubious of it. He is a person who can keep his emotions under his control, stay calm, and act as his usual self. Raishin is a person who when in a given situation thinks that he is the only person who can help will help, although usually though, he only helps women who are in need of help as he does not want to regret not being able to, the same way he felt when he was not able to save Nadeshiko. He is an impartial person who treats automata equally. Raishin is not interested in studying and often does not pay attention to the lectures in the Academy, often distracted and or asleep amidst of it. He is fond of and indulges in teasing other people, especially those who are provoked. Raishin easily gets depressed whenever he is misunderstood by other people because of Yaya's vulgar, perverted remarks. He is aware of his weaknesses but does not allow it to set him back. Raishin does not give up easily and always finds a way to attain his goals as he is set on his goal of revenge.

Raishin Using Shinkan Shijuuhachishou on Yaya

Raishin using Shinkan Shijuuhachi-
shou on Yaya.

Inside a train that had departed from London and was bounded for Liverpool, Raishin had his usual playful banter with Yaya. The train finally arrived at Lime Street Station but passed through on without a hint of stopping as its brakes were not working. Along with Yaya, they then made their way to the top of the carriage and swiftly ran to the front of the train. Raishin then used Shinkan Shijuuhachishou on Yaya. She launched at the train's nose, landing a considerable distance in front of the train. Then, the train crashed on Yaya, driving her back about fifty metres, but she remained unharmed and the train completely halted. Raishin and Yaya then left the scene and made their way to the Walpurgis Royal Academy of Machinart.

Raishin Consulting Kimberly of Another Way to Enter the Night Party

Raishin consulting Kimberly on another way to enter the Night Party.

During a lunch break, on Main Street, Raishin and Yaya stood amidst of the opened path awaiting Charlotte, and as Charlotte arrived, Raishin taunted her into a fight. Two days prior, evening, in the dim hallway of the Central Auditorium, Raishin was disappointed after receiving the results of the transfer admission test he just took. Kimberly suddenly interposed and introduced herself, gave Raishin some advice, and then started walking away when Raishin stopped her to consult on another way to enter the Night Party. Because of Raishin's persistence, Kimberly hinted him of another way then finally left. Raishin then announced his next course of action to Yaya. Raishin and Charlotte continued their teasing exchange, but Yaya interjectingly remarked a perverted line. Charlotte, picking up what Yaya had said, instructed Sigmund of crushing Raishin. At that instant, Sigmund transformed into his huge original form. Suddenly, Raishin and Yaya sensed an approaching iron ball and evaded it. The iron ball charged towards Sigmund who swat the iron ball away.

Raishin Ambushed Attacked by Witch

Raishin ambushed attacked by Witch in the anime.

Armoured Knight, Barefooted Girl, Sextupedal Beast, Undine, Jack Frost, and Harpy attacked Sigmund successively, cornering him, and then Golem finally immobilizing him. The iron ball next charged at him, but Yaya caught it before it hit him. Ten Benchwarmers' Leader stepped out amidst the crowd of students and offered Raishin a proposal, but Raishin swiftly refused and then commanded Yaya to attack. Yaya kicked Golem away, enabling Sigmund to move freely again. Raishin then explained his plan to Charlotte when Witch suddenly fired Fireball at him, but Yaya had covered him, both appearing completely unharmed. Raishin commanded Yaya and she then burst forward and kicked Witch’s jaw. Ten Benchwarmer Leader, becoming desperate, commanded his group to attack Raishin instead.

Raishin Attacking Barefooted Girl

Raishin attacking Barefooted Girl.

Armoured Knight and Golem attacked Raishin, but Raishin dodged their attacks and then used Kouen Juuniketsu on Yaya. Yaya kicked Golem, causing it to crash into Armoured Knight, and then dashed into the enemy's midst. Raishin followed closely after her, and together with her, distracted the Ten Benchwarmers. As Raishin drew the Ten Benchwarmers' attention to him, Charlotte waited for their automata to line up in a row and then had Sigmund launch Lustre Cannon. The automata were caught up in the blast. The Ten Benchwarmers, defeated, retrieved their automata and scurried away. Charlotte was then about to continue her fight with Raishin, but Raishin declined her then threw a smoke bomb and ran off, along with Yaya, a considerable distance away from her.

Raishin Notices Magnus

Raishin notices Magnus.

Once again, Raishin found himself in his usual dream of his past that kept haunting him. The scene was ablaze and he was searching for Nadeshiko. Raishin then headed towards a large room, yanking open its screen doors. During a lunch break, inside the Cafeteria, Raishin and Yaya fell in line to get some helpings of food. Raishin, lacking sleep, realised too late that he had to pay for the food they took. Charlotte suddenly interjected and handed Raishin some money. Raishin accepted and paid for his and Yaya's portions. Charlotte followed suit after and then threw on Raishin a notebook with a scribble in it that says that he had to pay with interest the money she had lent him. As Raishin signed the deal, he asked Sigmund how he was doing, and Sigmund replied that he was fine.

Raishin Clarifying to Magnus of Only Wanting to Give Him a Gift

Raishin clarifying to Magnus of only wanting to give him a gift.

Raishin returned the notebook back to Charlotte and then invited her to dine together. Charlotte refused, but Raishin was persistent and followed her to her table. He then started talking to her as Yaya went into a dark silence and Sigmund nonchalantly began eating. Suddenly, Raishin noticed Magnus. Magnus was crossing the street along with his two automata. Raishin burst out of the Cafeteria and then called out to Magnus. He was grimaced upon seeing Hotaru excessively resemble Nadeshiko. Raishin then announced to Magnus that he had something to give him, and in a split second, he was then surrounded by Magnus' Squadron. Raishin clarified to Magnus that he only wanted to give him a gift, and Magnus then commanded his Squadron to withdraw. Hotaru took the small bottle from Raishin and gave it to Magnus who thanked him and left along with his Squadron.

Raishin Discussing with Felix about Felix's Proposal

Raishin discussing with Felix about Felix's proposal.

Raishin was downcast at his realisation as Yaya, while crying, ran to him, apologising for not being able to do anything. Suddenly, Felix applauded Raishin and then greeted him. He asked him if he could talk with him for a moment, and Raishin complied. He and Felix headed into the Cafeteria to Charlotte's table. Felix then requested Raishin to work with him, but Raishin swiftly refused. Felix was insistent, offering Raishin an Entry as a deal. Dusk, inside the Disciplinary Committee Chairman’s office in the Central Auditorium, before Felix could prepare the tea, Raishin had Yaya prepare it instead. He and Felix then discussed about Felix's proposal. Suddenly, Lisette burst into the office and called out to Felix to report to him that there is another case of devoured automaton. Felix then called out to Raishin to come with him and check out the scene.

Raishin Giving His Observations about Morning Star Wielder's Dead Body

Raishin giving his observations about Morning Star Wielder's dead body.

Evening, at the grove of trees behind the Technical Vocational Building, Charlotte, with Sigmund resting on top of her cap, was onlooking the scene when Raishin, Yaya, Felix, and Lisette arrived. Felix, along with Lisette, entered the grove of trees, and after, called out to Raishin. Raishin, along with Yaya, then entered it as well, saw Morning Star Wielder's dead body, and gave his observations about it, which Felix confirmed. He then inquired about its identity, and Lisette answered that it might probably be Morning Star Wielder. Raishin reflectively assented as he recognised the iron ball that was embedded in Morning Star Wielder's crushed legs although found it peculiar that it was by her own weapon. He then was about to consult Charlotte about it, but Charlotte turned away. Raishin tried stopping her, but Charlotte forced controlled Sigmund to bite Raishin. After she left, Felix intervened and then asked Raishin if he was finally going to accept his proposal, but Raishin replied that he will think about it and he, along with Yaya, then left.

Eliza Warning Raishin of Charlotte II

Raishin being warned by Lisette of Charlotte in the anime.

Lisette intercepted Raishin and then whispered to him that she wanted to tell him about something privately. Raishin ordered Yaya to return to the Tortoise Dormitory and implied for her to consult Shouko about Felix’s proposal, and Yaya begrudgingly did. Lisette then led Raishin to a deserted lecture hall. One hour later, Raishin returned to the Tortoise Dormitory and entered his room. He asked Yaya if she was able to consult Shouko about Felix’s proposal, and Yaya replied that she did and that Komurasaki imparted the Japanese Army’s approval. Raishin pondered on how he was then going to find Cannibal Candy when Sigmund suddenly appeared, landing on Raishin's room’s window's windowsill, and knocked on its glass. Raishin welcomed Sigmund, and Sigmund apologised for biting him earlier, vindicated Charlotte, excused himself, and then finally left. After he left, Raishin recalled his earlier conversation with Lisette. One hour earlier, inside a deserted lecture hall, Lisette warned Raishin of Charlotte.

Raishin Accepts Charlotte's Date Invitation

Raishin accepts Charlotte's date invitation.

Abruptly, Raishin was interrupted by Yaya’s jealous stare. He then announced to her that they will begin hunting Cannibal Candy tomorrow. The next day, Raishin was suddenly awoken by Charlotte's sudden visit. Charlotte, with Sigmund resting on top of her cap, asked Raishin on a date, shocking Yaya. Raishin assented, and Charlotte then hurriedly left. Lisette, accompanied by Zeth, suddenly interposed and handed Raishin a large envelope that contained the contract and the materials about Cannibal Candy. Half past three in the afternoon, in a lecture room inside the Faculty of Science, Raishin, along with Yaya, was led by Charlotte, with Sigmund resting on top of her cap, out of the lecture room to the Technical Vocational Building where they then searched behind it.

Raishin and Charlotte having a Light Banter As They Ate Their Meals

Raishin and Charlotte having a light banter as they ate their meals.

Two hours later, dusk, Charlotte asked Raishin to be a decoy for Cannibal Candy, but Raishin refused. He became troubled of Charlotte’s resolve so he then asked her for them to have a proper date, shocking her and Yaya. Charlotte declined, but Raishin taunted Charlotte, making her assent. He and Charlotte then left the Academy. Evening, in the city, at the balcony of the second floor of the The Pumphouse, Raishin and Charlotte had a light banter as they ate their meals. After they left The Pumphouse, they stopped by a shoe shop, and then after, walked back to the Academy. As they neared the Academy Gates, Raishin suddenly noticed a commotion happening inside the Academy and dashed towards it. Inside the Academy, as he arrived at the scene at a garden, Felix recognised him and greeted him.

Raishin Observing Undine's Dead Body

Raishin observing Undine's dead body.

Raishin asked him what happened, and Felix answered that there is another case of devoured automaton and asked him if he wanted to see it. Raishin assented, and Felix guided Raishin inside the garden. Suddenly, Charlotte interposed. Felix greeted Charlotte and sharply commented on her date with Raishin, but before Charlotte could defend herself, Felix interposed, showing Raishin the dead body of the devoured automaton. Charlotte briefly looked upon Ten Benchwarmers' Silver-haired Member and then turned away, but Felix suddenly interposed, gave her an advice, and informed her that he will stop courting her, making her shocked. Charlotte then was about to defend herself, but Felix interposed, asking her to leave, remarked for them not to see each other, and then turned away, making her aghast. Raishin tried calming her down, but Charlotte ran away.

Raishin then returned to the Tortoise Dormitory, and as he entered his room, Yaya cheerfully greeted him as she was having a malfunction in her thinking process. He hugged her and apologised to her, making her return to her usual self. Raishin presented to Yaya the package that he had just bought, and after she opened it, helped her put it on. He then explained to her the reason why he went out on a date with Charlotte. Raishin contemplated on grasping that Charlotte was being incriminated by Cannibal Candy when the Tortoise Dormitory’s Tortoise Dormitory's Boarding Master suddenly knocked on his room’s door to inform him that there is a telephone call for him. He then went down to the lobby to answer the call.

Raishin being Asked by Eliza of Charlotte's Whereabouts

Raishin being asked by Lisette of Charlotte's whereabouts.

On the other side of the line was Lisette who informed Raishin that the Disciplinary Committee is searching for Charlotte and asked him if he knew where her whereabouts were, but Raishin dissented, making Lisette hang up on him. He then was about to leave the dormitory when he abruptly halted upon seeing Shouko, together with Irori where with hidden presences, who greeted him, surprising him and making the Tortoise Dormitory’s Boarding Master ask him if there was anything wrong. Raishin allayed him, and Shouko then whispered to Raishin for them to talk in his room. Raishin, Shouko and Irori headed to Raishin’s room, and after they entered it, Shouko greeted Yaya who assented, making Irori suddenly interject and reprimand Yaya.

Raishin Asking Shouko for the Reason why She was in the Academy

Raishin asking Shouko for the reason why she was in the Academy.

Raishin ignored Yaya and Irori’s exchange and asked Shouko for the reason why she was in the Academy, and Shouko answered that the Japanese Army’s investigation on Cannibal Candy's case concluded that Cannibal Candy might be a formidable opponent and then warned Raishin to withdraw. Raishin replied his resolution in helping Charlotte, and Shouko consented, summoned Yaya to remove her restriction and lectured Raishin of Kongouriki’s weakness. Raishin then called out to Yaya, and together with her, dashed out of his room, burst out of the Tortoise Dormitory and dashed towards the Gryphon Dormitory. As he did, he recalled his earlier conversation with Felix.— Raishin was about to run after Charlotte, but Felix stopped Raishin and appeased him.—

Raishin Contemplating on Eliza's Disclosure of the Reason why the Disciplinary Committee is Searching for Charlotte

Raishin contemplating on Eliza's disclosure of the reason why the Disciplinary Committee is searching for Charlotte.

After Raishin’s recollection, Yaya suddenly warned Raishin of an approaching presence, and as Raishin and Yaya approached it, Raishin recognised it as Lisette, called out to her and asked her if she was searching for Charlotte. Lisette assented, disclosed to Raishin of the magic circuits discovered in Charlotte's room as being the reason why the Disciplinary Committee is searching for her and then excused herself, but Raishin interposed and asked Lisette if he could confirm something in the Locker. Lisette then replied that she does not have the authority to grant Raishin access into the Locker therefore she needs a moment to make a telephone call to Felix to discuss with him about Raishin’s request and then left. After awhile, Lisette finally returned, reported that Felix talked to the Night Party Executive Committee who thereby gave her and Raishin permission to access the Locker and then led him and Yaya to it. After Lisette, Raishin and Yaya arrived at it, Lisette informed Raishin of its condition of entry, and Raishin agreed. Lisette then presented herself to the Locker’s security guards, and the security guards handed over to Lisette and Raishin a master key.

Raishin Discovering Lisette's Dead Body in Her Own Locker II

Raishin discovering Lisette's dead body in her own locker just before being attacked by Eliza.

After Raishin and Lisette entered the Locker, Lisette asked Raishin what he wanted to confirm, and Raishin answered that he wanted to confirm something in a third year student’s locker, making Lisette lead him to the Locker’s second floor. Raishin then asked Lisette about Felix's automaton and its magic circuit, and Lisette answered that she does not know much about them. After Raishin and Lisette arrived at the Locker’s second floor, she indicated Felix’s locker’s location to Raishin as she had the impression of it being his intended locker, but Raishin replied that it was not his intended locker, took the master key from Lisette and walked to a different location. He then arrived at his intended locker's room and searched for his intended locker, and after finding it, he unlocked it and opened its cover where he saw inside it Lisette's dead body. In the next moment, Raishin's back was forcefully hit by Lisette.

Raishin Arguing His Argument against Eliza's Explanation on how She Identified Morning Star Wielder

Raishin arguing his argument against Lisette's explanation on how she identified Morning Star Wielder.

A day prior, evening, inside the deserted lecture hall, after Lisette warned Raishin of Charlotte, she asked Raishin if he had any questions. Raishin assented and asked Lisette why she was present during Cannibal Candy’s attack, but Lisette dissented. Raishin then asked Lisette how she was able to identify Morning Star Wielder as Morning Star Wielder as Lisette should have not been able to due to Morning Star Wielder's unrecognisability, and Lisette countered Raishin’s argument and vindicated herself, making Raishin mockingly laugh at her and pacify her. Raishin turned away, but before he left, clarified to Lisette that he never accused her of being Cannibal Candy from the very beginning and only asked her if she was present during Cannibal Candy’s attack. Lisette replied that she misunderstood what he had said, and Raishin mockingly laughed as he left.

Raishin crashed onto Lisette's locker and he and Lisette's locker then smashed onto the room’s wall, rendering him unconscious and a clatter which reverberated throughout the Locker, making its security guards, together with their automata, immediately burst into the room. The security guards asked Lisette what had happened, and Lisette answered that Raishin had tried destroying the automata in the room so she then had to attack him. The security guards then took Raishin’s body, but as they turned away, Lisette intercepted them, informed them that Raishin might be conspiring with Cannibal Candy wherefore she requested them to restrain Yaya. The security guards assented and then asked Lisette what she was then going to do, and Lisette answered that she will be reporting to the Disciplinary Committee about had happened. The security guards then permitted Lisette to leave, and Lisette sealed Lisette's locker and hastily left. The security guards then brought Raishin's body out of the Locker to in front of it where with some of the Disciplinary Committee members then gave him first aid and then put him onto a stretcher bounded for the Doctor’s Office. Suddenly, Kimberly appeared, approached Raishin, checked his condition and then informed the persons handling him of it, making them hastily transport him to the Doctor’s Office.

Raishin is a third-rate puppeteer, barely having knowledge of the field of puppetry as he had only seriously studied it for two years.


Fuurinkazan ((ふうりんざん) Fūrinkazan?, lit. "Wind, Forest, Fire, and Mountain"): An elementary battle concept, usually used by beginners in the field of puppetry, that functions as a code or a vocalised command that lets Raishin adjust the nature of the magic energy, the amount of magic energy output, the type of magic art; the formation that which Raishin and Yaya attacks with, whether if it is offence or defence, which Raishin transmits to Yaya. The command is issued in the form of: the nature (based off the Fuurinkazan; Suimei ((すいめい) Suimei?, lit. "Howling Wind"), Shinkan ((しんかん) Shinkan?, lit. "Silent Forest"), Kouen ((こうえん) Kōen?, lit. "Flaming Light") or Tenken ((てんけん) Tenken?, lit. "Nature’s Ruggedness") + number (magic energy output) + formation (offence or defence; Shou ((しょう) Shō?, lit. "Strike") or Ketsu ((けつ) Ketsu?, lit. "Binding")). The command would look like for example: for strike; Tenken Kyuujuurokushou ((てんけんきゅうじゅうろくしょう) Tenken Kyūjūrokushō?, lit. "96th Strike: Nature’s Ruggedness") or for binding; Kouen Juuniketsu ((こうえんじゅうけつ) Kōen Jūniketsu?, lit. "12th Binding: Flaming Light").

  • Suimei ((すいめい) Suimei?, lit. "Howling Wind"): A command based off the Fuurinkazan to increase Yaya's agility. In the anime, whenever Raishin uses Suimei on Yaya, he releases blue strings of magic energy onto her, enveloping her whole body, glowing off with blue magic energy for a short duration of time.
  • Shinkan ((しんかん) Shinkan?, lit. "Silent Forest"): A command based off the Fuurinkazan to increase Yaya's endurance and sturdiness to intercept attacks. Yaya, in a relaxed stance, a stance to catch an approaching attack, waits for the opponent's attack to land. In the anime, whenever Raishin uses Shinkan on Yaya, he releases green strings of magic energy onto her, enveloping her whole body, glowing off with green magic energy for a short duration of time.
  • Kouen ((こうえん) Kōen?, lit. "Flaming Light"): A command based off the Fuurinkazan for Yaya to release a barrage of movements or attacks. In the anime, whenever Raishin uses Kouen on Yaya, with a shou formation, he releases crimson strings of magic energy onto her, while with a ketsu formation, he releases yellow strings of magic energy, enveloping her whole body, glowing off with the respective magic energy for a short duration of time.
  • Tenken ((てんけん) Tenken?, lit. "Nature’s Ruggedness"): A command based off the Fuurinkazan to increase Yaya's hardness. In the anime, whenever Raishin uses Tenken on Yaya, he releases yellow strings of magic energy onto her, enveloping her whole body, glowing off with yellow magic energy for a short duration of time.

Character Profile and Art Design


  • Raishin's name was uttered by Charlotte as "lie" and "sin" , the opposite of the meanings of the Japanese kanji of his name; Kaminari ((かみなり) Kaminari?)'s root word of Kami ((かみ) Kami?), meaning "god", a sinless divine entity, and Shin ((しん) Shin?), meaning "truth".
  • Raishin can only barely read and write English, so Yaya reads out for him whatever written that he does not understand or copies down notes for him during his lectures.
  • Raishin mysteriously discovered that Charlotte uses bra pads.
