Anime: Musaigen no Phantom World
Occupation: 1st Year High School Student; Phantom Hunter
Ability: No specific name. It involves using her voice like a Hyper Beam lol
”Break, break, break, break into the tune of creation, tune, tune, tune, tune, control the key/tunnel the flames/shine the light of fortune”
Koito Minase is one of the main characters in the anime Musaigen no Phantom World - debuting in episode 1. She is a phantom hunter and a special ability user who is able to bind and seal phantoms using fire-elemental attacks. She also used to be a lone wolf and hunted phantoms alone, but she gradually grew accustomed to Team E and joined. Is she a reincarnation of Iwasawa Masami? Perhaps a less mature version to be honest.
Koito stands at the average stature of 162cm (about 5ft 4in) with fair skin, short magenta hair, and pink eyes. And her body is very attractive - as mentioned by Ruru and Haruhiko… I’m not a perv. She seems pretty cold and aloof at first and that is because of her past, but she’s actually really damn cute and caring. She managed to break out of her shell and show her true self instead of the side she shows everyone due to being isolated. She deserves hugs. Give her some hugs.
She is usually seen wearing her Hosea Academy school uniform, which is comprised of: a black-collared undershirt; a white jacket with light green lines outlining the opening and the 2 pockets; a white shirt that reaches her upper thighs with a light green line along the bottom; black tights; and ling brown boots that reach her knees. Her signature items include: her star hairpin on the left side of her hair; another pin near it; and of course, her white and pink headphones. Koito’s headphones just complete her look in my opinion and adds in to her lone wolf character. She is never seen without them, even being shown wearing them around her neck during the episodes where a perverted ape phantom brought a steamy outdoor bathhouse to their school and the episode that every anime has to have - the beach episode. But it’s all good - she mentioned they were waterproof! I want a pair.
At first, Koito seemed like a very distant, stubborn, and judgmental person. She would criticize Team E for getting in the way of her phantom hunting jobs when they actually helped and saved her. She would even go as far as stalking Team E’s mission to see if she could be impressed by their skills, only to have her put them down in the end. I was upset because I really wanted to like her, but I decided to keep the hope alive. And boy, I’m glad I was. She became much more caring and her true personality shined to the point where she would rush in front of Mai to shield her from an attack. From there, the audience got to know more about her and the reasons to why she acted rudely towards others. But I felt her personality and how the audience sees her is greatly affected by the voice actors. I’ll explain this more in the personal thoughts section.
Basically she does a FUS RO DAH! and then things go boom! - That was my initial description when I typed this after having a drink. Now let’s get into the real description.
Koito has a fire type special ability that is noted to be frighteningly powerful. She is even able to defeat a train phantom going full speed at her just with her little incantation and her voice. This is helpful for both offense and defense for she can shield herself and others by countering an attack with her voice. She can also bind phantoms by creating a rope around them, as well as seal/destroy them. But as Pokémon nerds such as myself would know, she would be in trouble against a water-type phantom. She is also unable to use her ability if her voice is strained so something as simple as a cold may affect her. Despite this, her ability has helped Team E a lot and she remains an important member. Now, not only is her ability powerful, but Koito is extremely knowledgable on phantoms and can sense them. This has been proven to be helpful on multiple occasions throughout the anime. This is why she needs to work as a team in order to bring out her true strength through team strategies and attacks.
Maaya Uchida was born on December 27, 1989 in Tokyo, Japan. She works as a singer and voice actress while being signed under the agency I’m Enterprise and the label Pony Canyon. She started her singing career in 2014 and has made multiple hit singles. As for her voice acting career, she started in 2010 and since then has been taking roles for very popular characters in various series. With her talent, Uchida was awarded the award for Best New Actress during the 8th Seiyu Awards. It seems that Uchida voices characters of varying personalities, but has voiced many calm and cool type characters such as Misa Kurobane from Charlotte, Koito Minase from Musaigen no Phantom World, and Rei Kuroki from Vividred Operation. Her experience with such characters have been shown in her role as Koito, but I felt as if her stubbornness was brought out more. Anyway, I’ll talk about this more later. Here’s a list of her roles:
Some notable voice acting roles:
- Hiyori Iki from Noragami
- Rika Takanashi from Chuunibyou
- Alluka Zoldyck from Hunter x Hunter
- Rea Sanka from Sankarea
- Yuki Yoshino from Shokugeki no Soma
- Liliruca Arde from Danmachi
- Shino Kuribayashi from Gate
- Red Beryl from Houseki no Kuni
- Norman from The Promised Neverland
- Kaguya Yamai from Date A Live
My personal faves:
- Yusa Nishimori/Kurobane, Misa from Charlotte
- Koito Minase from Musaigen no Phantom World
- Rei Kuroki from Vividred Operation
- Mari from YuruYuri
- Miyake from Wandering Son
Some new roles:
- Melty Q. Melromarc from The Rising of the Shield Hero
- Rui Tachibana from Domestic Girlfriend
- Kanna Hatano from YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World
- Otomi Tachibana from Mix
- Shiro from Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san
Expanded from the Koito section of my Musaigen no Phantom World thoughts blog: Boop
Alrighty so the main point of my section on Koito in that blog was about how upset I was. Seeing her image made me want to check the synopsis of the anime and then watch it because she reminded me of one of my favorite characters ever - Iwasawa Masami. Koito had a nice introduction as a super strong special ability user and how she would hunt phantoms by herself. Most special ability users worked in teams of 2 or more, so I expected her fighting capabilities to match her strong ability and experience. But I was let down in the end because she had to be saved often. At one moment she’s defeating a monstrous phantom by herself and in the next, she’s fainting from having warm water poured on her. This showed off her stubbornness until she slowly began to work as a time and that was when her powers shined. Though, I have one issue. And that’s because she can sense phantoms and issues that may occur, yet she does not bring them up until the very last minute. I felt as if the writers were all over the place with this character and she might’ve been better off joining Team E after her history and solo scenes were fleshed out more. I believe that they played into the “lone wolf girl breaking out of her shell” thing too much and that was done by excessively showing her stubbornness. I don’t know, it just felt rushed.
Continuing on from the personality section above, Koito’s personality and how the audience sees her is greatly affected by the voice actors. I had switched between English dub and sub while watching Musaigen no Phantom World as a little experiment to see if I would view the characters differently. And yes, I was. Mai seemed more cool and less whiny/tsundere in the English dub while Koito was more quiet and chill. Her Japanese voice actress, Maaya Uchida, showed off Koito’s stubbornness and excuse my language - “b*tchy” side. But Koito’s English voice actress, Jeannie Tirado, kept her calm, cool, and collected nature. I appreciated the English dub more for that reason because I really enjoyed the cool side of Koito rather than the stubborn one. But both did a great job at showing these sides.
I loved the personality switch where she goes from rude and eases into a very cute and caring individual. An example would be when Ruru is granted a wish to become human-sized and she makes up a sad backstory in order to pretend to be a regular girl. Koito is then shown handing her a cup of tea and expressing empathy. The audience can tell from her expression that she is deeply concerned for her well-being. My heart melted. And the way she blushes and adores sweets makes me love her even more! Overall, Koito was a character I had high expectation for, but was a bit disappointed by the execution of her development. Nevertheless, I hope to see more of her if there is ever a season 2 of Musaigen no Phantom World. Adding as a waifu because I’m a sucker for anime girls with headphones. Heheheh

Phantom ( ファントム , Fantomu ? ) is a broad term for ghosts, yōkai, monsters and other supernatural beings in the Musaigen no Phantom World series.
Definition [ ]
Mai fighting a Phantom
Most phantoms existing are said to be harmless. But there are also phantoms that may lead people afield. There is still a lot of things about Phantoms that are shrouded in mystery. But they are a figment of the imagination, and/or an apparition or specter. They are thought to be hallucinations or the man-made manifestations of such, and it's believed that Phantoms owe their existence largely to the human subconscious and language centers. Ever since the Phantoms appeared, humans with special abilities have been born. There are many Phantoms in all shapes and sizes. Some examples are:
- Ruru - She is a friendly phantom and has the appearance of a human, albeit an extremely small one.
- Enigma - An evil Phantom that takes the appearance of a human. She can possess humans and steal the special abilities of ability users.
- Ayumi Kitajima - A Phantom who disguised herself to be a human. A manifestation of the frustration the drama club felt from losing to other drama clubs for 10 straight years.
- There are also many other Phantoms, for example, sunflower lookalikes, Tsukumogami etc.
History [ ]
A decade ago, the Alayashiki Research Facility was hit by a terrorist bomb, resulting to a certain virus that infects the brain to spread out. The large-scale bio-hazard almost affect the majority of the population, causing some changes in the brain function. This leads to the people becoming aware of the Phantom's existence. Phantoms are once considered as fictional or perceptible to only animals and humans with ESP. But after the tragic event in the facility, they are defined as the creatures that broke down the wall between reality and myths. Addition to the mentioned information, breastfeeding infants manifested superpowers giving birth to abilities, an example of which are the protagonists of the series.
Attributes [ ]
All Phantoms possess one of 5 attributes/elements, who are similar to the 5 elements of Chinese theology. Currently, Mai Kawakami is the only individual in the series that can control the five attributes and use them to seal malevolent Phantoms.
