Valkyrie Drive Wiki

Manpuku Maru-chan or Manpuku Maru (commonly called Manpukumaru-chan before the characters realized her actual name) simply loves food. Though her perpetually cheerful attitude makes her seem harmless, don't be fooled: in her eyes, the difference between friend and foe is a simple as who has more food to offer. Perhaps a full stomach is her only ally. She uses dual cleavers in battle.




Manpukumaru is a very tall girl, with the largest bust in the cast. She has light brown hair styled in twin-tails. Her irises are lime green and her pupils are star-shaped. She wears a purple maid outfit that exposes her stomach. She wears combat boots.


Manpuku loves food and is usually very cheery, if not totally aware of what is going on. The only character that managed to put her in a bad mood was Mana Inagawa.

Manpuku does not have a primary partners like many of the others, and tends to just partner with whoever needs it at the time (usually in exchange for a meal). Prior to the story she was most recently partnering with Viola since she Koharu Tsukikage had stopped partnering with her.
