Character list for Tenjo Tenge 17This table lists all characters from Tenjo Tenge 17. Click on the table header to sort the table. The "First Appeared" does not sort properly because I haven't zero-padded the volume numbers. Also, sorting on the Image and Description fields doesn't really make sense, but you can do it.

|Asshat [Sugano Kagesada]||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
In chapter 103 we see a focus on Asshat and his training. In this chapter, he takes on the responsibility of really being a man, and faces up to his fear that has been haunting him ever since the battle between Mitsuomi and Shin two years ago. He has been working hard to try to be able to face up to it again, and sees again that hellish grin when he faces against the Mayutsubo Nokimi controlled Koumikawa.

|Mayutsubo Nokimi||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
Mayatsubo Nokimi is likely a pseudonym or not a real name, but that is how she was introduced, so that is what I will call her until I find something better. (I used "Razor Girl" for a while as well.) I'm not sure if this is the girl with the box cutter from chapter 101, but I think it is. She is also shown as a traditional witch with big nose, warts, and all, but I think that is just an explanatory image of her "witchcraft." Thank you, Oh! Great, for using a more appealing character design. She seemed kind of sad and very disappointed that Koumikawa Hitomi was so "weak" - not a challenge for her - when she fought and defeated her. According to Isuzu Emi, this person is a Magician, one of the 23 people on the list of "People with Unusual Abilities", which I translated as (inaccurately!) "the Red Feather List". In chapter 103, we learn from Tsumuji Mataza (F) that she is from a Souhaku branch family, the Rikudou family (characters mean "six roads") and she is the "57th of the sexagenary cycle" (wtf? A sexagenarian is someone who is from 60-69 years old, but...?) She is supposed to be one of Souhaku's confidants, and her power is "important" to Mitsuomi's plan as well.

|Koumikawa Hitomi||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
3rd year student, President of the 5th Jyujyutsu Club. Their group has 108 members, and has won the Election Tournament two times in the past 10 years, always making the best 8. Hitomi is said to be very strong, and has unsurpassed ground skills. They say that when she fights with a man, the men always go down with an idiotic grin on their face. She was ranked 2nd behind only the Enforcement Group's Isuzu Emi in the school-wide "Girl I would like to be stomped on by" ranking.
Her catch-phrase is "Ewh, that is so annoying." (うっざいんですけど？)

|Isuzu Emi||11||Volume 17 Page 010||Volume 17|
|Rotsukaku Raika||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
She is a first year student that is part of the Tournament Steering Committee, generally regarded as the referees of the tournament. Each group gets one person assigned to them and that person reports back the situation of the matches and fighting circumstances to the main headquarters.
Her name is kind of a joke: she is using a Leica M8 camera, and her name sounds the same as Leica. The Leica M8 came out in late 2006, retailing for about $4800 currently.

|Marantz Tadokoro Gonzoles||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
Bowgun Association Leader. They are chosen in the first round as one of the Jyuukenbu's opponents. Strangely, their very low-level group was able to obtain a prime location usually occupied by one of the major Archery groups. They were promised large rewards by Isuzu Emi from the Enforcement Group if they could take out the Jyuukenbu in the first round. Tagami Shirou was very unhappy about that arrangement.

|Koujimachi Kaneteru||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
3rd year student, President of the Armor Kurashion (甲冑クラシオン), the armoured fighting club. He seems to really like Oak trees for some reason, and thinks that the Helment Beetle is the best beetle of them all. Their club has taken techniques based on a warrior whose sword was broken and armor depleted by arrow attacks in the past, and mixed it with techniques from modern fighting styles. According to Kurei, he is ranked 23rd overall in the school.

|Gushiken Kaoru||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
3rd year student, President of the Taidou Club. He talks a big talk about the body's "central pivot line" and how all the major damange points on a body line up with that line from the head down. His approach is to intentionally move in ways that open that line up to attack, as opposed to the natural stance that would protect that line. Opponents who are used to martial arts are surprised by that tactic.

|Arahan Seito||From Tenjo Tenge Volume 17|
Leader of the Shyourinji Kenpo Club. They are a weak club, composed of members that just wanted to hang out and slack off. When they are randomly chosen to oppose the Enforcement Group in the first round, the entire team is easily taken out by an unhappy Tagami Shirou, who does not like such uneven fights.
