Rokuro Enmado (焔魔堂 ろくろ Enmadō Rokuro?) is the main protagonist of Twin Star Exorcists series. He is an exorcist and is the only survivor from the Hiinatsuki Dormitory. Together with Benio Adashino, they are the current Twin Star Exorcists, destined to have a child who will be the Miko. He also founded Enmado House on the Tsuchimikado Island.

Appearance

Rokuro has messy dark brown hair, with a streak of hair at the top and has prominently sharp teeth. His eyes are of crimson red, much like his mother Abe no Seimei's.

Originally he lost his right arm when he was 12, but due to special circumstances was able to gain a new one.

Two years later, Rokuro still has the same hairstyle but seems to have grown a bit longer. He is shown to have grown much taller and seems to have a stronger build.

Personality

In the past he was quite cheerful, having dreams to cleanse and destroy all Impurities and Magano, but after the Hiinatsuki tragedy, due to the fear of losing more "people that he cared about", he decided to stop fighting and quit being an exorcist. He often attempts to become someone big in various areas like: soccer, acting, etc. but he lacks all kind of talent and fails at everything, including simple things as map reading.

Even though he doesn't want to fight, he can't stand by and do nothing when someone needs help, and he is ready to risk his life to help those in need, for example, when he saved Benio from the impurity she had trouble defeating herself, and when he rushed to Magano to save Ryougo, not taking any dangers in consideration.

Rokuro is a bit reckless at times and is very talkative, or, as Benio calls him, "loud". He retains a lot of emotional pain but keeps a strong exterior to make sure none of his friends worry about him.

After two years, he is shown to have matured, has a better sense of responsibility and is a very hardworking individual, both in exorcism and in school. In the anime, when he and Benio found Sae, he developed a father-like side, always watching out for Sae and worrying about her safety and well-being before his own.

History

When he was about six years old, Rokuro was found by Seigen Amawaka and another exorcist in the Magano with no memories of his past. He was then brought to the Hiinatsuki Dormitory, where Ryogo Nagitsuji took care of him. When Rokuro was young, his dream was to become the strongest exorcist and exorcise all the impurities and sins. By the age of 12, he was already an amazing exorcist that was acknowledged by many. One day, Rokuro's classmate and long-time rival, Yuto Ijika, performed a forbidden ritual that would transform all students involved at Hiinatsuki Dormitory into Fallen Impurity, causing chaos into the campus. Rokuro himself was caught in the ritual, but rather than becoming a Fallen Impurity along with everyone else, his arm had turned into that of an Impurity, and a powerful one at that. With no choice left, Rokuro was forced to put down his fellow friends and students, he reluctantly killed everyone in the dormitory before confronting Yuto. The two fought and Rokuro managed to severely wound Yuto though latter had managed to escaped into Magano but his wounds gave Rokuro the belief that he'd died as a result. Ever since the tragedy, he gave up on being an exorcist due to the pain of the losses, despite being one of the most powerful, and loathes everything that has to do with them.

Plot

Rokuro was first seen confessing to a girl, but she turned him down, even telling him that there is nothing good about him. Rokuro rushed to Seika Dormitory, where he asked everyone if there was something good about him, but received stupid "good" qualities. As Rokuro was stating his dream, Ryougo and the rest told him he is not good at anything else other than exorcism and that he should become exorcist. This annoyed Rokuro, resulting in him leaving to clear his mind.

As Rokuro was walking outside, he saw a girl falling from the sky into the river and tried to save her, but he ended up needing to be saved by her. She asked him to help on getting to the place on the map she had, but in the end Rokuro wasn't able to find the spot. As they saw two children disappear into Magano, she used a charm and opened a portal to Magano to go and save them and Rokuro followed her. As Benio defeated multiple Impurities, a stronger Impurity showed up. She left the kids to Rokuro and gave him a charm to use to get out of Magano, while she defeats it. As she was about to be defeated, Rokuro stepped in and used a black charm, transforming one of his hands after which he defeated the Impurity with a single blow. That annoyed Benio, as she stepped on Rokuro's foot after that and told him that she didn't ask for his help.

After they left Magano, they met Kinu, the woman that takes care of Benio. Before heading towards the place she had to go, she and Rokuro exchanged names. In the end, Benio had to go to Seika Dormitory and when Rokuro came, they mocked him for not being able to read a map to his own place.

Powers and Abilities

Impurity Arm

During the Hinatsuki Tragedy, his original arm was devoured by an impurity corrupted trainee, and he eventually got corrupted like the other trainees, but he manage to suppress the corruption and only had his arm regenerated into a rocky red impurity arm. The arm grants him immense power and speed and has helped him exorcise impurities with one punch. Star Revealment Talisman (星装顕符 Seisōgenpu?, "Celestial Gear Expose Charm"):[1] Rokuro use this black charm to summon and control his Impurity Arm to perform exorcisms effectively. It is also a seal to disguise his arm into a human arm and prevent Rokuro being corrupted again. Unlike regular Enchanted Gears, it can use unlimited times. After the second fight with Yuuto, his master Seigen gave him a red evolved form of his black charm, which gave to the new version of his arm; Astral Disaster.

Abe no Seimei Form

V003 (1)

Rokuro's Abe no Seimei Form

Rokuro has, at two points, briefly become a manifestation of Abe no Seimei after seeing a brief vision of an apparently young child, implied to be the Miko, who "has finally reached him." When Rokuro first used the form, it was during his fight with Yuto and it healed the hole he received in his stomach and gave him the strength to fight and overwhelm Yuto both in his regular form and Kegare form. The second time he uses it is during Sayo's Divination Ceremony, Rokuro's Spirit Guardian is shown to be somehow related to Abe No Seimei as it summoned all of the guardians and caused them to all bow before him something Shimon Ikaruga stated he had never heard of.

Shikigami

Because Arima Tsuchimikado sealed off his powers with a spell, Rokuro had to change his way of fighting. After Arimori Tsuchimikado had used a spell to undo some of the seal, Rokuro is now able to use some of his old powers permitting him to use Shikigami which he needed for future fights. It proved to be extremely powerful as it helped him defeat Kankuro Mitosaka the current third strongest of the Heavenly Commanders. This even earned him praise from the other exorcists who saw why he was picked as one of the Twin Stars.

  • Flaming Ohagi Man (焼きおはぎマン Yaki Ohagi-Man?): Having been taught by Arimori about how to use a Shikigami, Rokuro has managed to create his very own which he used for Exorcist Games. When Arimori told Rokuro to picture his shikigami after something in his memories, he recalled when Benio showed him her drawing of a creature made of Ohagi. At first glance, it didn't seem impressive until Rokuro activated it and disperse large amounts of power.[4]
  • Twin Buster Flamberge (双天破神焔魔炎撃拳(ツインバスターフランベルジェ) Tsuin Basutā Furanberuje?): When activating Flame Demon, Blaze Attack (焔魔炎撃 Enma Engeki?), the flames coating Ohagi Man surge, and Rokuro enchants his gauntlets with the power covering them and half of his face in armor. It was likely a homage to his Kegare arm. Rokuro first used in his fight with Kankuro Mitosaka at the Exorcist Games.[5]
    • Star Damned (星方獄炎焦殺(スターダムド) Sutā Damudo?): It was first seen in Rokuro's fight with Kankuro Mitosaka. The spell allows Rokuro to propel himself with great speed and sends his opponents flying even powerful opponents like a member of the Twelve Guardians. Once used, it leaves flames resembling that of dragons behind in its wake. [6]
    • Golt Smash Incendio (金烏天衝炎滅魔焦弾(ゴルトスマッシュ・インセンディオ) Goruto Sumasshu Insendio?): After using Star Damned and going above his opponents in the air, Rokuro can fire a powerful blast at his target sending them crashing to ground.[7]
  • Enhanced Enchanted Power: As noted by Kengo Ujii, the Shikigami's level of power was incredibly high and said to be even comparable to Tenma Unomiya who is the strongest of the Twelve Guardians. Kengo took no chance and told the Exorcists at the games to increase the power of the barriers surrounding the arena. [8]

Relationships

Benio Adashino

Rokuro and Benio are destined to marry and give birth to the strongest exorcist, the Miko. At first, he is against this. But after they were forced to live together in order to become closer and accept their given name as the Twin Star Exorcists, he still refuses to accept marrying her. Benio seems to be in love with him even though he was totally oblivious to it. Rokuro has strong feelings to protect her even if it means it would cost him his life. Benio is also seen to show the same feelings. When she lost her legs in an intense battle against Yuuto, she felt very helpless looking at Rokuro fighting and losing which made her resolve to agree to the eleventh Basara Kamui's offer to give her the legs of an Impurity so she can fight again together with Rokuro.

On their first night out, Rokuro gifts two bellflower shaped accessories to Benio as a token of friendship, although the manga and anime heavily imply they are more than friends. Rokuro in the later chapters seems to get embarrassed easily by seeing Benio smile showing signs of attraction. He has also bathed together with Benio as a "challenge", although he passes out from a nosebleed and shock as Benio faints from embarrassment while washing his back. You could easily say their relationship is definitely more than simplistic friends, as they live together (at the forcing of Arima), have bathed together and respect each other as formidable exorcists.

In chapter 33, he and Benio shared their first kiss after he made her new hairpins. He was shocked by her kissing him even more so by her reason, which was to prevent him from going after another girl. He parted from her promising to see her again. It seems after this he became aware of her feelings for him since he noticed how shy and bashful she was.

In the anime, you could easily say that Rokuro has feelings for Benio because he blushes when he sees Benio smile from the bottom of her heart. He later kisses Benio[9] and accept some their engagement.[10]

Mayura Otomi

She is Rokuro's childhood friend, they get along very well though Rokuro is put off by her unusual habit of saying strange expression and insults. She is in love with Rokuro but he is oblivious to it. Rokuro seems to care about her but only because she was there when he wanted someone to be with him during bad times, such as the Hiinatsuki Dormitory Incident, and helped him get back up. She is very worried at first about Rokuro being an exorcist again but soon accepts it. She also seems to accept Benio's and Rokuro's relationship and them both staying in the same house.

In later chapters when she sees Rokuro and Benio together always fighting and becoming stronger she feels left behind hopelessly and starts training with Rokuro and Benio in their house on weekends and saying that she won't let Rokuro and Benio have, as she coins often, "illicit sexual relationships". Determined not to get left behind by the Sousei and saddened by her "low resolve", she becomes one of the Twelve Heavenly Commanders while fighting a Basara, seemingly "inheriting" her father's post.

Seigen Amawaka

An ex-Heavenly Commander who is also Rokuro and Ryougo's exorcist mentor. Rokuro's relationship with Seigen is that of an "idiot disciple" and a teacher. Rokuro (and Ryougo) are seemingly abused by him during his 'teaching methods' and treats them like helpless kids who don't know the cruelty of the world.

His teacher-student relationship with Rokuro becomes rocky as he interrupts (read: saves) the Sousei from being defeated by a strong Kegare, hearing Rokuro's "pretty words" and challenging him to a fight to show his power to back them up. Rokuro loses easily and his black charm is ripped to shreds. Later, Seigen gifts an evolved version of the black talisman to Rokuro after a series of events which involved him losing an arm. Their relationship improves steadily after that.

Shimon Ikaruga

One of the Heavenly Commander who hated Rokuro at first after encountering him at the Magano with Benio but he does acknowledge his power after fought several impurities by himself. The reason he hated Rokuro was, in fact, somewhat due to the jealously of him getting the attention of Seigen, and later made Seigen heavily wounded protecting him.

When he witnessed Rokuro's transformation, he was amazed by its power especially after it made Sayo's Kuzunoha guardians bow which was a feat he never witnessed. [11] Shimon later bore witness to Rokuro's battle against Kankuro Mitosaka and was surprised by his rapid development since their last fight/[12]

His relationship with Rokuro is of comrade as the manga slowly starts. He develops respect for Rokuro when he came to his aid after the Basara who wants to kill Sayo for power. After both saving Sayo and defeating the two Basara with him, Shimon kneeled down to Rokuro thanking and saying, that he is honored to have been able to fight alongside as a comrade.

Sayo Ikaruga

She has a huge crush on Rokuro. She snuck into his bed while he was sleeping twice.[13]

Shizuru Ioroi

Initially, she was hostile towards Rokuro simply because he was an exorcist from the mainland. She disregarded his title as a Twin Star and looked down on him when he was unable to anything in Magano. However, she was shocked when Rokuro saved her from being attacked by a Kegare despite her previous treatment towards him. Shizuru was left blushing at the thought of being saved by a mainland Exorcist unable to process the experience. She later caught a glimpse of him at the Seiyouin Academy, hiding and blushing at seeing Rokuro again.

While Shizuru still looked down on his strength, she saw his true power as she watched him overwhelm Kankuro Mitosaka. This caused her to take back her previous views of him and understand her father's treatment to him, which is seen with her cheering him on in the remainder of his battle as well as being amazed by his skill and tenacity.[14] She then witnessed Rokuro emerged victorious, greatly impressing her as she saw he really was powerful.[15]

A running gag, is that Rokuro continuously forgets her name resulting in her correcting him each time. Shizuru herself suspected that was intended, but quickly turned the assumption down. [16]

After the games, they meet again with Shizuru no longer viewing him as a weakling since she saw his real power and have more respect towards him. Her affections remain, as she still blushes around him.

Her older brothers tried to help her with her feelings by asking Rokuro to invite her to have a meal. Rokuro agreed without hestitation, without awaring of that would be a date. [17]

Arimori Tsuchimikado

Rokuro first encountered Arimori at the Seiyouin Exorcist Academy, he bumped into him by accident and was shocked to learn from Kinako that he was the son of Arima Tsuchimikado.

In response, Arimori stated Rokuro was the worst kind of person after he insulted his father. Later on, Arimori arrived at Rokuro's home and stated he was going to live there but when will help him get more members as well aid in Rokuro's training for the Exorcists games in exchange for him becoming his servant. Rokuro bluntly denies him to Arimori's shock and when Kinako mentions that Arimori could tell his father this causes the latter to threaten him but Rokuro hits him on the head. Arimori cries as that was the first time someone struck him and while eating candy he promises to make Rokuro pay. Rokuro is forced to make up to Arimori by begrudgingly following the boy's orders over the next few days. However, when Arima showed up and insulted him in order to push Arimori away from him, which make Rokuro defend for him. He later swear loyalty to Rokuro and become his first courtier. When Kinako hinted that Arimori joined Rokuro to make Arima pay attention to him, asks if that is true as Arimori blushes and sweats confirming the answer. Rokuro says he may have to reconsider his decision as Arimori clearly has father issues but the latter denies this.[18]

Overall, the two get along fine even developing a brotherly relationship, and Arimori also act as a consultant to Rokuro. Arimori kept his promise of recruiting others and training both which helped him. During Rokuro's fight against Kankuro Mitosaka, Arimori cheered Rokuro on as he overwhelmed and soon defeated the third strongest exorcist. After the match, he cried tears of joy as he hugged Rokuro calling his actions cool.[19][20]

Trivia

  • Rokuro's surname contains the kanji for "flame" (?), "demon" (?), and "temple" (?).
  • Rokuro hates curry due to Benio making curry for 20 consecutive days according to the manga.
  • Rokuro's Enchanted Gear is similar to Kamen Rider Double's Fang Memory because of their past slaughter as well as their animalistic look/behavior. It also bears similarity to the mutation of Piers Nivans from Resident Evil 6, since both manage to retain their minds while regenerated a mutant arm.
  • There are at least six girls who have a crush on Rokuro: Benio Adashino, Mayura Otomi,Sayo Ikaruga, Shizuru Ioroi, and the Hinatsuki Dormitory's girls Ami Nagose and Hikari Mikitoji. However Rokuro himself is not aware of all the girl's feelings, let alone having a harem.
