Tenshi ni Narumon/Characters

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami

  • Accidental Marriage
  • Airplane Arms: Noelle loves this pose, especially when she is about to glomp Yuusuke. Just look at the picture on the right.
  • Blue Eyes
  • Blush Sticker
  • Book Dumb: This one is quite an interesting since the apparent 'dumbness' of Noelle is supposed to emphisize even more the overall goodness and pureness of her personality in contrast to some other characters who seem much more intelligent, but are much less decent human beings.
  • Catch Phrase: "Yuusuke Yuusuke Yuusuke!" "Yuusuke gyutte shite" (Yuusuke, hug me) and "Tenshi ni narumon!" (I will become an angel!)
  • Cloudcuckoolander: While most of the characters are weirdos at some point in the series, Noelle still stands out the most. So much that in the last episodes she manages to come off as one of the saner characters.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Throughout the entire series.
  • Dumb Blonde
  • Genki Girl: Noelle is IS this trope incarnated.
  • Idiot Hair: Not really her hair per se (though it is flipped up), but the ribbons from her bows seriously defy gravity.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Noelle is pretty much goodness and pureness incarnated - unfortunately with a side effect of having brain capacity of a 3 year old (while technically being 15).
  • Hair of Gold
  • Love At First Sight: Noelle falls in love with Yuusuke right off the bat upon just meeting him when he stumbles across her in the forest and accidentally kisses her.
  • Messianic Archetype
  • Naive Newcomer: Might be slightly subverted in that she is the heroine but plot is told from her love interest's point of view.
  • Official Couple: With Yuusuke.
  • The Glomp: Noelle loves doing this to Yuusuke to an almost frightening degree.
  • The Messiah: Noelle is pure beyond pureness, loves everyone (especially Yuusuke) and in the end saves everyone, especially the two most troubled individuals who caused her a lot of problems.

Suzuhara Natsumi

Voiced by: Yukana

  • Please Don't Leave Me: Natsumi says this to her brother, Fuyuki who is technically Raphael and he eventually leaves her behind. The funny (or maybe not so funny) thing is that later in the series Mikael says pretty much the same thing to Raphael but this time Raphael takes his student with him back to Heaven. Tells you a lot about Raphael's preferences, I guess. Or maybe not since Fuyuki was kind of fated to die due to his apparent illness.

  • Cry Cute: After being hugged by Noelle in the final episode.
  • Death Equals Redemption: It might be be kinda subverted, since in the last episode, it looked like Mikael and Silky (especially Mikael) could gain redemption only through letting go and dying, but then at the very end when Noelle eventually cleaned up the whole mess, everything turned out just fine, no one died and everyone seemed to get their happy ending.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Especially in the first season where she poses for a doll.
  • Emotionless Girl: In the first season, she is an emotionless puppet under Dispell's control, merely repeating whatever he says. In the second season it gets subverted, as it turns out that it was Dispell who was really a puppet and Silky's real personality emerges which is an exact opposite of the term 'emotionless'.
  • Living Toys: Dispell, Eros and Muse are basically just dolls made alive by Silky's power as a respite from boredom and loneliness
  • [[spoiler: Master of Illusion: Has the power of creating illusions in the vaccum space that she resides in, as well as making her dolls alive
  • Redemption Equals Life: After finally letting go and resigning to the worst, Mikael and Silky come out alive.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She is in fact a villain - at least for the majority of the second season

  • Beautiful Dreamer: In episode 15 Raphael explains to Mikael that the reason he didn't wake him up was because he got lost in admiration of his cute sleeping face.
  • Bishonen
  • Break the Haughty: Got thoroughly broken at the end of the series after going evil and insane over his obsession of becoming an angel, leaving him totally dependant on his teacher who still let him stew in his own juice. But it got subverted at the very end, because his actions, however morally dubious they were, got him promoted to a position of an angel teacher.
  • Broken Ace: Mikael calm, polite and sweet to those who don't know him and stubborn, obsessive and totally insecure boy to those who are close to him (mainly, one person). In reality, a boy who cannot accept who he really is and constantly desires perfection. His self-hatred leads to an epic Face Heel Turn and even more epic breakdown. He gets better, though.
  • Cry Cute: Gives an epic cry after Raphael in the final episode together with blushing cheeks and tears streaming down his face. And it was all after becoming evil and turning his back on said Raphael.
  • Cute and Psycho: Mikael is usually a cute, easily agitated boy, but when under great stress and when things don't go they way he wants them, can turn into a really scary and obsessive Cute Psycho. It can be argued that it's a side effect of his halo falling off.
  • Death Equals Redemption: It might be be kinda subverted, since in the last episode, it looked like Mikael and Silky (especially Mikael) could gain redemption only through letting go and dying, but then at the very end when Noelle eventually cleaned up the whole mess, everything turned out just fine, no one died and everyone seemed to get their happy ending.
  • Eyes of Gold: His tie pretty well with the whole 'being more than meets the eye' and can point at his dual nature. Whatever his truly evil or not is up to the viewer, but he sure is a polarizing character.
  • Hidden Eyes: Has his eyes obscured for a brief moment during the revelation in the rain in episode 23 when he decides to become a demon.
  • I Just Want to Be You: Mikael pretty much emulates his teacher on every occasion when they are NOT together. When they are - he shifts back to his usual and quite opposite true self.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Mikael is a textbook example of an intelligent loner - in the first season, he is mostly seen alone with his Book of Chaos and only occasionally talking to Noelle. In the second season, it's slightly subverted, but only because Raphael makes him go out more and actually interact with people (well, in this case, just Noelle's family]. Still, his favourite pastime seems to be... studying. His isolation doesn't do him much good, as evident later in the series.
  • Modesty Bedsheet
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In the final episode, after Silky sets their wings on fire, Mikael snaps out of his madness and when Raphael appears before him and confronts him with what his actions have led to, Mikael breaks into tears, expresses his remorse over what he has done and pleads his teacher to rescue everyone. When Raphael disappears, Mikael just resigns to the worst, but he got better.
  • No Sense of Humor: If we're not counting the last three/four episodes that is - although in that episodes it's not what one would call 'a healthy sense of humor' either
  • Official Couple: With Raphael.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Mikael says something to that effect to Raphael at the very end of the series when it looks like Raphael is leaving him behind. Turns out Raphael was only pretending and he eventually takes Mikael with him back to Heaven.
  • Redemption Equals Death: This may apply to Mikael after Noelle eventually turns into an angel and saves Yuusuke, which in turn allows him to save her family. After that he, Noelle and Silky start to merge into one angel being (meaning they start dying), so he indeed does something redeemable after becoming the series' Big Bad
  • Redemption Equals Life: After finally letting go and resigning to the worst, Mikael and Silky managed to come out alive.
  • Redemption in the Rain: Subverted, as it rains when Raphael confronts Mikael with his past, but it marks Mikael's loss of sanity and his start of darkness.
  • Red Herring Shirt: In the first season he was nothing more but a background character, sometimes appearing only at the very end of episode or not appearing at all. In the second season, it was revealed that he is one of the three main individuals, then he got promoted to a final villain and at the end, it turned out that he, in fact, was the main hero of the show - confirmed by The Word Of God.
  • Sitting on the Roof: Often with Raphael in the second season and alone in the opening. Also implied that he slept on the church's roof during the first season.
  • Tears of Remorse
  • Tragic Hero: Overall good-willed, but terribly misguided and with immense issuses of self-denial. His obsession with becoming a full angel blinded him to other people's feelings/opinions and led him to undertake pretty harshful and questionable actions. In the end, he did realize his wrongdoings and although it was implied that he will probably never become such angel as he would like to be, he eventually got recognized as a decent... 1/3 of an angel? Or something like that.
  • Tsundere: Mikael is a Type A with Raphael and Type B with anyone else with a mix of Cute and Psycho. He usually acts like a nice, kind and polite gentleman that is until everything goes according to his plans - if not, he might turn into a full-blown Cute Psycho). And when around Raphael, he's a straight-out Type A Tsundere with VERY occasional dere side popping out in critical moments
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: Even though he does not really have white hair or red eyes, he fits the overall description to a T.

Raphael/Suzuhara Fuyuki

  • Come Back to Bed, Honey: Basically says this to Mikael in episode 15.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Has red hair and a fairly dark skin (especially when contrasted with Mikael's) and matching bouncy and energetic personality, although he's not really hotblooded. In fact he is pretty mellow maybe because he wasn't doing much in the series, besides playing guitar and molesting Mikael.
  • Official Couple: With Mikael.
  • The Gadfly: Raphael is this with a mix of The Tease towards Mikael
  • Memetic Sex God: Raphael is basically the main (if not the only) reason for watching this series for many fan(girl)s.
  • Urban Legend Love Life: Raphael is an interesting case, because he is an angel and is generally invisible/untouchable to humans, but because of his flirtatious behaviour toward Mikael, most fans assume that he must be a lecherous pervert, thinking only about one thing, when in fact, there is nothing in the series to prove that assumption. The fact that Mikael himself kinda treats him like a perverted nuisance doesn't help the matters.

  • Replacement Goldfish: Kai knows that Natsumi, who he is in love with, sees him just as a replacemnent for her dead brother Fuyuki, over whom Natsumi obsesses constantly since his death. He eventually decides that for her own good it would be the best if they parted away.
