Meet the cast of ThunderKid!

 

Name: Denki Raiyama
Aki Name: ThunderKid
Age: 10
Birthday: April 1
Race: LightNin/Thundran

Denki is the perky yet often loopy child hero of the story. He likes playing baseball, playing RPGs, and hanging out with his four best friends. He’s extremely dense but he has a really big soft spot especially when it comes to crying girls.

Author’s Notes

  • The “den” in Denki’s name is Japanese for “lightning.”
  • The “-ki” in his name is a typical suffix for boys in Japan.

 

 

 

 

Name: Haruka Hanashiro
Aki Name: Princess
Age: 10
Birthday: March 22
Race: Japanese Terran

Haruka is a kinda bossy rich-girl type who is always trying something new and different. This friendly but firm young heroine never lets anything, neither doom nor fancy dress, stop her from doing something even if she gets a little dirty. She’s really smart and acts as a second big sister to Denki who is her best friend.

Author’s Notes

  • The kids that make up Denki’s best friends are all named after the seasons!
  • The “haru” in Haruka is the Japanese word for “spring.”
  • While the “-ka” is a typical suffix for girls. The suffix “-ko” is also common for girls.

 

 

Name: Aki Hamura
Age: 10
Birthday: September 21
Race: Japanese Terran

Aki is the self-appointed cool guy. Since he’s the oldest he calls everyone “kid” except for Haruka who he calls “Princess.” No one really knows why though. He may act older, cooler, and a little jerky but in reality he’s kind of a softy at heart and a firm believer in fairy tale ideals, especially the age old happy ending.

Author’s Notes

  • The kids that make up Denki’s best friends are all named after the seasons!
  • Aki’s name is actually Japanese for “autumn.”
  • The “-ki” in his name is also a typical suffix for boys in Japan.

 

Name: Natsumi Youkishi
Aki Name: SweetKid
Age: 10
Birthday: June 21
Race: Japanese Terran

Natsumi is the sweet, bubbly, and impressionable little sister of the group. Super girly, giddy, fancy, and frilly she loves pretty dresses, is very polite, and almost never gets angry at anyone. Since she’s the youngest, she looks up to everyone as her hero, especially her best girl friend Haruka and her crush Denki.

Author’s Notes

  • The kids that make up Denki’s best friends are all named after the seasons!
  • The “natsu” in Natsumi’s name is the Japanese word for “summer.”
  • The “-mi” in her name is Japanese for “beauty.” So say it together and her name means “summer beauty!”

 

Name: Fuyuki Yukihashi
Aki Name: ShyKid
Age: 10
Birthday: December 22
Race: LightNin/Thundran

Fuyuki is the sweet but shy one of Denki’s friends. Like Denki, he love video games, and while he’s really good at them, he’s too shy to brag about it! He has a big crush on Natsumi but is too afraid to tell her. But since Natsumi is sweeter on him than anyone, it’s okay. He’ll always step up when she and others are in trouble which proves that he’s braver than he gives himself credit for.

Author’s Notes

• The kids that make up Denki’s best friends are all named after the seasons!
• The “fuyu” in Fuyuki’s name is Japanese for the season of “winter.”
