Main characters

  • Photon Earth: is the main protagonist, he is extremely strong and fights using a quarterstaff made of black crystal. Has the word "baka" scribbled across his forehead by Aun in black ink as he was trying to lead her back home. He's also able to withstand even the strongest blasts of Aho energy, even when it's focused directly on him.
  • Aun Freya: is Photon's spoiled, high-strung, flighty childhood friend, she has the ability to create stasis fields. Humourously, she isn't immune to her own stasis fields and can paradoxically trap herself (and everything around her) in a perpetual stasis field. Photon is the only one who is immune to her stasis field and also is the only one who can get her and keep her out of such messes.
  • Keyne Aqua: is the rebel space pilot who came to Sandy Planet. Photon inadvertently married her when he wrote the word "baka" in katakana on her forehead in black marker.
  • Sir Papacharino Nanadan: (or Papacha) is the bumbling antagonist. Also quite perverted when it comes to women. He has an obsession with Keyne and will stop at nothing to have her, but is always foiled by Photon's intervening.
  • Princess Lashara Moon: Known as the "Flower of the Galaxy" due to her beauty, she's the daughter of the Galactic Emperor. She's madly smitten with Papacha, but what she didn't know is Papacha was really going to user her marriage to increase his harem.
  • Bulan: The mysterious servant woman to Lashara, donning a strange looking hat (with feminine lips) and skintight purple attire. Usually moves by hovering on a golden platform and arrives with the princess to Sandy Planet to search out the "Singularity Point". However, she seems to know more about Lashara than she really lets on...
  • Pochis: Papacha's cute doll-like henchmen. Excluding Pochi #1 (who acts as a leader figure to the others), there are 28 of them, who refer to each other by their number. Though Papacha believes they're all male, in truth, all the Pochis are really female.

AAW: Photon Review (2173 words)
Photon is superficially a standard harem show--a collection of lively women, a villain or two, and a clueless male at the center of it all.
Speaking of which, the comic timing in Photon is dead on, both among the cast and in the purely visual scenes (a particular situation involving a doll popping a seam and the half-asleep villain reacting in proxy comes to mind as a perfect example).
Photon is a lot different--his deadpan, adult-sounding voice clearly establishes the character as an underdeveloped adult.
