Minor Characters are defined here as ones with small but notable impact on the storyline or who appear only once or twice.

This article is organized by manga chapter and anime episode. In the case of the anime, differences are duly noted if they are unique to both versions. Background characters who merely watch (or die without speaking) may be observed in 'crowd.'

Please keep descriptions brief. If you're writing a lot about a particular character, odds are they need their article! Some characters, though having more lines than another, may have less impact on the storyline. For example, Saito is killed in the same chapter she is introduced, but her actions had a great impact on the Mariko storyline, so she has her separate article. To use an example from another genre, you may see the cabbage vendor in Avatar The Last Airbender more than King Bumi, but there is no doubt Bumi is more important. Please consider the impact of the character before 'promoting' them to a full article. Characters with actual dialogue, however brief, will be noted in bold type.
