Ruru (ルル?) is is a small phantom who is usually seen by Haruhiko's side, and stands by as his "partner". She is the deuteragonist in the Musaigen no Phantom World series.

Appearance Edit

Ruru is a small phantom who takes the appearance of a tanned girl with long, wavy, turquoise hair, tied into a hued light blue twist at the back of her head using a dark pink hair-tie. She has deep red-colored eyes.

Personality Edit

Ruru has a highly energetic and cheerful personality and is usually seen with a smile on her lips. She can also be somewhat childish and naive, but she isn't shy at all and can come off as a blunt, as she sometimes says things that are flustering, which irritates Haruhiko. Ruru also holds pride over herself and often takes the leadership over Haruhiko when he is "slacking off", much to his annoyance.[1] Ruru seems to be quite popular with the girls in Hosea Academy, since she is often asked to eat lunch with others. Ruru is also a very friendly and straightforward phantom, calling other by their first name despite just meeting them.

Plot Edit

Ruru is a small phantom with the appearance of a little human woman. She is always seen by Haruhiko's side and lives with him. She constantly follows Haruhiko and his team while fighting the Phantoms.

As a human Edit


Ruru as Ramune Natsuno

Ruru became a human since she wanted to be closer to Haruhiko because he had ignored her several times, which her thinking it is to due her size. A witch phantom then appeared and said that she would fulfill her wish. However, if someone found about her true identity she would revert back to normal. Ruru acted as a transfer student in Haruhiko's class and her human name was Ramune Natsuno (夏野ラムネ Natsuno Ramune?) and she became really popular. Later that day, she revealed her identity to the others and turn back into Ruru again at the festival.[2]

Background Edit

Ruru defines herself as an "expert observer". As a phantom, she has the ability to turn things or a small range of area into a pix-elated form. This is seen when Haruhiko's library and his uniform becomes pix-elated. Ruru can turn herself into a pix-elated form too. Ruru also said that she met Haruhiko when he was in middle school, and ever since, she has always been by his side.

It is later revealed that Ruru is "born" from Haruhiko. Arisu theorizes that Ruru is a manifestation of the freewheeling personality that Haruhiko subconsciously repressed. So Ruru has the same ability as Haruhiko, and it is also possible that Ruru is synchronized to his growth; so she is basically a part of Haruhiko, and Reina says it's possible that she is more like a "twin" to him.[3]

Relationships Edit

Haruhiko Ichijo Edit

Ruru is very fond of Haruhiko and is shown sitting on his shoulder or head almost all the time. She occasionally wants his attention, and she cares for him so she is sometimes seen to comfort him when he is feeling down. It is unknown how they met, but they get along in a like and dislike relationship. While they generally are friendly with each other, Ruru likes to tease Haruhiko and can get annoyed at him, and Haruhiko also sometimes gets irritated on her when she says weird and embarrassing things, resulting in Haruhiko "slapping" her. Haruhiko claims that he doesn't take her seriously and that the others shouldn't as well.

In Episode 10, it is revealed how much Ruru means to Haruhiko. Even though Haruhiko thinks Ruru can be annoying, he enjoys her company since he lives alone. When he thought she died at the festival, Haruhiko became very sad and emotional in which he shed tears. But when she came back, Haruhiko was really relieved but a little annoyed at the same time, since he became all emotional for "nothing".

Overall, they still care for each other and Haruhiko doesn't mind Ruru being with him almost all the time.

Mai, Reina and Koito Edit

Ruru is on friendly terms with all of the girls since they all are friends with Haruhiko. Ruru has known Mai the longest, and is most comfortable being by her side when Haruhiko isn't nearby. However, Ruru cares for all of the girls and usually compliments them. She also calls them by their first names and is sometimes seen helping them.
