Yun Kouga and Yuu Kou: Loveless
Her marking, which she interprets as physical proof of her relationship with Kouya, slowly fades without warning. In a blatant reference to the homosexual nature of their relationship, both girls' markings -- a 0 with a line through the middle -- are on the same place: Takehito Koyasu He was Soubi's former teacher and held a very influential role in Soubi's life at that time.
In the few times they have made contact within the current timeline, Soubi acts very brusque and treats him with disgust, in a way that almost recalls the dynamics of a parent-child relationship. It is also revealed that he was the one who took away Soubi's virginity. Ritsu is said to have been the Sacrifice to Soubi's mother, which lead to him and Soubi meeting. Both Ritsu and Nagisa had previously denied any affiliation with the Septimal Moon.
Ken Narita He is Ritsuka's older brother. He was seventeen when he was found murdered, although he died under mysterious circumstances and could only be identified by his dental records. Ritsuka was hit hardest of all by the news of his brother's death. Seimei is the sacrifice of the Beloved pair, Soubi having been given to Seimei mostly at Seimei's request as a fighter when Seimei was only 14 years old. His personality is subject of great debate, and many readers have very different interpretations of his actions.
To make things more confusing, the characters in the story themselves clash with their different beliefs and experiences, some believing he was a gentle, loving man and others saying that he was cruel, merciless, and hateful. However, it has recently been confirmed that Seimei does indeed have a violent personality, or destructive behavior at the very least. There are also suggestions in canon that Seimei possesses powers beyond that of a normal sacrifice.
He has been described as inhuman by Soubi and others. First appearing in volume 5, he is the real Fighter Unit of Beloved, and helps keep track of Ritsuka by spying on him and reporting the information to a mysterious boss.
After he meets Soubi in volume 6, he stops following Ritsuka, though his presence remains near.
He and Soubi have great animosity between each other, and in volume 6 Soubi expresses his deep desire to murder Nisei at any cost. Wakana Yamazaki She is the mother of Seimei and Ritsuka, and has an important influence over both of them.
Being emotionally and mentally weak, Misaki has very little grip on reality and is abusive, violent, and often hallucinates. She believes Ritsuka's personality change is the reason Seimei "left", and blames him for it, demanding that she wants her former Ritsuka back when she beats her son.
Sanae Kobayashi She is an easily angered woman who conducts experiments, and is the creator of the Zero series humans who cannot feel physical pain.
Her background is unknown, but it is revealed that she is over 30 years old, contrary to her young appearance. She had a sister, though what became of her has not yet been revealed.
Her over-the-top behavior and strange lifestyle leaves her alone and alienated, and she shamefully confesses that 7 is her only friend. She has an intirguing relationship with Ritsu, seeing him as a rival and putting up a front of hating him, though small moments, such as her blushing whenever he is near or touches her, reveal possibly deeper feelings.
Aya Hisakawa She first appeared in volume 3 of the manga and Episode 12 in the anime.

Her mission as stated in volume 5 is to determine whether Seimei really faked his death. She is a member of Septimal Moon, although her role in the organization outside of the previously described mission is unclear. She has tell-tale signs of a hikikomori, leaving her computer rarely and has even admitted to Nagisa she has no other friends.
Nakahira A young man who still retains his ears and who first appears in volume 6. Little is known about Nakahira, although he seems protective and respectful of Chaco. Nakahira owns a cat, named Shirokuro, who gives birth to four kittens.
When told by Seimei that the cat would eat her young before allowing someone to take them away, Nakahira is plainly disgusted.
Seimei usually refers to him as "Nakahira-san". His actions, his words and his motives are all a result of his order. Let me repeat this; Soubi cannot disobey that order. Soubi is NOT sexually attracted to Ritsuka, and never expresses that he holds a sexual attraction to him; Quite the opposite in fact.
The conversation that may seem to contradict this sentiment is when Ritsuka ask Soubi if he intends to take his ears. I won't get a hard on with a child like you for a partner, you know. This is further proven when Soubi cuts back on the physical aspects of their relationship, as a bond between them has begun to form enough to make do for the time being and can begin to grow on its own.
Soubi is not as physically forward with Ritsuka because he wants to be or out of any sexual desire for him. He is so physically forward with Ritsuka because it is a means to an objective that is an extension of his original order.
Their relationship is not sexual, nor is it romantic. It is the relationship between Sacrifice and Fighter, Dominant and Submissive. It is about Total Power Exchange and Ritsuka's journey in accepting his role as a Sacrifice Dominant as well as learning how to accept that power. Again, let me remind you that you cannot ignore the rules of this canonverse to justify something you don't agree with.
For instance- Murder is a horrendous act, and yet in a setting such as The Hunger Games, it becomes necessary for survival. Now, the next argument on the list is that Soubi's feelings towards Ritsuka are not just confined to the orders given, because Soubi has specifically told us that although he was ordered to be Ritsuka's side, he had come to love him on his own.
Therefore, this points to him being a pedophile, right? There are actually four types of love: Each love shared between two people is unique based on the persons and other factors involved; they may fall into these four generalized categories, but are not required to fit precisely with each part of the given definition.
Although you may not like someone, you decide to love them just as a human being. This kind of love is all about sacrifice as well as giving and expecting nothing in return. The translation of the word agape is love in the verb — form: It is a committed and chosen love. Phileo The phileo love refers to an affectionate, warm and tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone.
Although you may have an agape love for your enemies, you may not have a phileo love for the same people. The translation of the word phileo is love in the noun — form: Storge It is a kind of family and friendship love. This is the love that parents naturally feel for their children; the love that member of the family have for each other; or the love that friends feel for each other. In some cases, this friendship love may turn into a romantic relationship, and the couple in such a relationship becomes best friends.
Storge love is unconditional, accepts flaws or faults and ultimately drives you to forgive. It is simply an emotional and sexual love. Although this romantic love is important in the beginning of a new relationship, it may not last unless it moves a notch higher because it focuses more on self instead of the other person.
After all, you're putting enough trust into another individual to give them complete authority over your entire life and actions. For example, Yamato and Kouya clearly have an Eros type of relationship, while Youji and Natsuo depict a combination of Storge and Phileo.
Although, it seems that the feelings that fighters are supposed to naturally feel towards their sacrifices is more on the extreme and selective end of agape. Again, there is no sexual or romantic attraction towards Ritsuka from Soubi.
However, we have to go back to the rules and guidelines of this particular universe. Sexuality is another of the predominant themes in Loveless. Virginity is made visible to the casual eye in the form of cat ears and a tail, and is presented to and perceived by its given society in a much different way then it is in our own. But because of its visibility in Loveless, and the ability to tell when someone is or isn't a virgin, the constructs of sexuality itself are given an altogether different perception and more of an open minded point of discussion.
You have to keep in mind that you are breaching cultural boundaries when you live in a westernized society and decide to read something from an Eastern culture.
