Akeno Shiranui (不知火 明乃 明星 Shiranui Akeno Myōjō?)
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese), Trina Nishimura (English)
Akeno is not only a mermaid, but also a “mermaid examiner”. She has the responsibility of deporting all the mer-people who fail to qualify as not only resembling humans but also not arousing any suspicion of their true identities; and unlike the other mermaids in the cast, Akeno is capable of suppressing her mermaid transformation, for brief moments, after coming into contact with water, having trained herself to do so. When first introduced she had a hostile attitude towards the other major protagonists. This later changes as develops feelings of compassion towards them and also as she finds her “duty” as a Knight-in-training as an excuse used by the final antagonist. It is also revealed that she is, in fact, Masa’s younger sister, a fact which she is unaware of. Her name is related to Shiranui Sea and Venus (明けの明星 ake no myōjyō ?, Venus in the eastern morning sky). She is terrified of ghosts and is hinted that she has feelings for Nagasumi.
