Madame Red from Kuroshitsuji

Angelina Dalles, more commonly known as Madame Red (voiced in Japanese by Romi Park and in English by Lydia Mackay) is Ciel Phantomhive’s Aunt in the anime/manga Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

She has a lot of past trauma from familial death and her inability to have children, and this drove her to become (along with Grelle) Jack the Ripper, which sadly ends with Grelle using her chainsaw death scythe on her.

Her whole appearance is red themed, with bright red hair, eyes, and matching lipstick. She wears a long red ruffle flared skirt, a white button up shirt with a white cravat tie, a red vest over top, and beautifully detailed red boots. Over top of this she wears a long red coat, that Grelle eventually ends up wearing as part of her outfit, after Angelina’s death.

Gin Akutagawa from Bungo Stray Dogs

Gin Akutagawa (voiced in Japanese by Shiina Natsukawa and in English by Allegra Clark) is part of the Port Mafia in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs, as well as Ryunosuke Akutagawa‘s younger sister.

Gin is one of the battalion leaders of the Black Lizard, under the instruction of the Port Mafia. Growing up on the streets with her brother, she’s learned to be very defensive, and has become a talented and silent assassin.  She has a softer and sweeter side to herself, but it’s not usually shown around the other Mafia members, aside from Ryunosuke.

She has long black hair that she wears up in a spiked ponytail with loose bangs, and the same bright grey eyes as her brother. The outfit that she wears while on duty is a grey striped tanktop, a black choker necklace, a long and tattered black longcoat with one gartered sleeve and one ripped sleeve, long sheer gloves, black pants, black heeled boots, and a crisscross layered white facemask.

Kyouka from Bungo Stray Dogs

Kyouka (voiced in Japanese by Sumire Morohoshi and in English by Cherami Leigh) is one of the secondary main characters in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

She was originally part of the Port Mafia and very much under their control, but defected fairly early on in the series and now works with Atsushi and the rest of the Armed Detective Agency.

Her hair color is a bit different between the anime and manga (blueish purple vs black) but she usually wears it in low pigtails regardless, and has very pretty blue eyes. The outfit she wears is a red kimono with leafy detailing, and the rest of her outfit’s accessories are highlighted in reds and yellows, such as a the red straps on her sandals. Kyouka has flowers tying off her pigtails, a white headband, and she carries around her cellphone on a string around her neck with a bunny keychain attached to it.

Joker from Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

Joker (voiced in Japanese by Mamoru Miyano and in English by Matthew Mercer) is one of the key characters in the Book of Circus arc in the anime/manga Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

He is the technical leader of the Noah’s Ark Circus, as well as a first-string member. While he is boisterous and showy during the performances, Joker is also very serious when it comes to the more gruesome tasks he is made to do.

Joker has blueish purple eyes highlighted with black eyeliner and a tealy blue teardrop drawn on. He has heavily stylized bleached bright orange hair that’s clipped back and braided (a note on the wig, every single Joker one I found had the purple section. I would advise either trying to bleach it yourself, if you are experienced, or try and trim it and add in the hair insert clips). His outfit is very showy, as the ringmaster, and has lots of thematic diamond theming tying in the vest and pants together. As with a few of the other members of the circus troupe, he has a missing limb, so while one of his hands is gloved, the other is a replacement skeletal arm.

Chuuya Nakahara from Bungo Stray Dogs

Chuuya Nakahara (voiced in Japanese by Kishō Taniyama and in English by Nicolas Roye) is one of the top executives in the Port Mafia in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

Chuuya is Dazai‘s former partner in the Double Black team from when they were both part of the Port Mafia, and still works with him when their organizations work in tandem against a larger power. His main ability is gravity manipulation, but he also has larger god-like powers that can be overwhelming and only tamable by Dazai.

He has very pretty blue eyes and long orange fluffy hair, worn longer over one shoulder. He wears a white button up shirt, a black harness-type tie over top, a black choker collar, a grey vest, a black and brown bolero jacket, a black and brown longcoat that he wears off-shoulder, black pants, black shoes, and a pair of black gloves, all of it topped off with a black hat with a brown trim.

Misaki Yata from K Project

Misaki Yata (voiced in Japanese by Jun Fukuyama and in English by Ben Diskin) is one of the main characters in the anime/manga K Project.

Yata is the captain of the front line of the group he belongs to, HOMRA, and has the insignia of his group tattooed on his collarbone. He has a very hot-headed personality and will take every opportunity to go all out in a fight, usually using his baseball bat and skateboard in tandem. Despite being loud and aggressive at many things, he holds the members of his group very dear to himself (even Fushimi, loathe as he is to admit it).

While it’s usually covered by his beanie, he has shaggy copper red hair that fluffs out at the ends and hazel eyes. He usually wears very comfortable clothes as he’s active a lot, so the outfit we mostly see him in is a loose white sweater with blue collar detailing, green boardshorts, a red sweater tied around his waist, black socks, and blue and orange shoes. The look is finished off with a pair of white and black headphones and a black watch. Yata does wear a blue tanktop underneath the sweater, but you rarely see it unless he’s not wearing the sweater, so that’s pretty whatever you want to wear under it.

Meirin from Kuroshitsuji

Meirin (voiced in Japanese by Emiri Katou and in English by Monica Rial) is part of the housekeeping and defense staff in the anime/manga Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

After spending the early years of her life as an assassin, she gets taken in by Sebastian after trying to attack Ciel, but ends up being hired on as the family’s maid and defensive sniper. She is often a clumsy maid when tasked with the duties she’s formally hired as, but is a very sharp-sighted sniper when she takes off her glasses.

She has pinkish-red hair usually worn up in pigtails and topped with a maid’s headband, and has hazel eyes that are usually hidden behind the round-rimmed glasses she was gifted upon joining the staff team at the manor. Meirin’s usual outfit is standard maid-wear with a black dress and white apron combo, but the way Nina Hopkins crafted her outfit, it allows her to pin up the skirt to the apron buttons, to expose her sock gartered leg and long black lace up workboots.

Osamu Dazai from Bungo Stray Dogs

Osamu Dazai (voiced in Japanese by Mamoru Miyano and in English by Kaiji Tang) is one of the main characters in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

Dazai used to be a member of the Port Mafia, partnered with Chuuya, until he defected and went to join the Armed Detective Agency, the opposing organization. He has the ability to nullify other’s powers, and this has been largely beneficial with keeping Chuuya’s god powers in check.

He has fluffy brown hair and similarly colored eyes. The outfit we usually see Dazai in is semi-formal, he wears a blueish-white button up shirt, a bolo tie, a blue undervest, a black vest over top, cream pants, brown shoes, a tan longcoat, and is wrapped in white bandages all over his torso and arms.

Nagisa Momoe from Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Nagisa (voiced in Japanese by Kana Asumi and in English by Xanthe Huynh) is a secondary main character in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica series. For this piece I’ve chosen her magical girl outfit, but I’ll do a follow-up for her civilian outfit later.

She started off the series as a Witch and later ends up becoming a key part of the group, as well as becoming a magical girl like the others. As the youngest of the group she’s a lot more childish and cheerful, but does have serious moments.

Nagisa’s magical outfit is very whimsical like the rest of her personality, accentuated by long curly white hair worn in small pigtails sticking out of her brown cat eared hat, and big yellow/orange eyes. She wears a cropped undershirt, a pink poncho, brown bloomers with bowed suspenders attached, and she has fingerless gloves and spotted tights, with orange soles (though I did go with ballet flats just because I couldn’t find ones built in).

Kazuya Shibuya (Naru) from Ghost Hunt

Kazuya [also known as Naru] (voiced in Japanese by Yuuki Tai and in English by Todd Haberkorn) is one of the main characters in the anime/manga Ghost Hunt.

He is the one that hires Mai to work for Shibuya Psychic Research, which he also owns, because he initially demanded that she work to repay the equipment she broke and the injury she caused. The nickname ‘Naru’ is one that Mai gave him, as an abbreviation for ‘narcissist’.

His whole appearance is very monochromatic, with dark blue-grey eyes, short black hair, and his whole outfit is dark tones. He wears a black button up with a black jacket over top, black slacks, and dark brown shoes.
