Murenase! Seton Gakuen: Plot and Characters

‘Murenase! Seton Gakuen’ or ‘Come Together! to the Seton Academy’ is not really a groundbreaking anime in any way and even when it comes to its premise, it’s way too simple and generic.

Murenase! Seton Gakuen Characters

Mazama Jin

Jin is the main character of the series who is a young schoolboy with short brown hair. When he was a child, he once saw a puppy being bullied by huge bears. Despite being scared, he decided to help out the puppy and got gravely injured after the bears attacked him. This incident completely changed his perception towards animals and he started despising them. Now every time he spots an animal in its natural habitat, he gets really pissed off. Ironically, he also has a lot of knowledge about animals and this later proves to be an asset for his group.

He also has some superhuman abilities. Compared to an average human being, he has a lot of stamina and can run long distances. He even competed in a desert marathon and managed to outrun all the camels as well. He is also freakishly good at throwing stuff. Case in point, in the first episode, he manages to throw a pineapple which later lands on Ranka’s face.

Hino Hitomi

Hino is one of the female protagonists of the show who has long brown hair, big hazel eyes, and is usually seen in her school uniform. Since she is the only other human in Jin’s class, the two of them become close friends. Just like Jin, she loves cooking and also starts her own cooking club at school.

Ranka Ookami

Ranka is the “dog” who got picked on by bears when she was younger. That’s when Jin came to her rescue and saved her from these bears but got attacked by them instead. She is a cheerful girl who seemingly has a “half human-half wolf” appearance. She has long pink hair and also a huge fluffy pink tail dangling down her legs. Even when it comes to her personality, she behaves a lot like a dog. She marks her territory in weirdest ways possible and chases food and bones.
