Michiko Tendo (てんどうミチコ Tendō Michiko?) was a Public Safety Devil Hunter from Kyoto.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Tendo was a tall woman with black hair tied back in a ponytail who tends to wear the standard Public Safety Devil Extermination uniform. She has a horizontal scar across her face which is a feature she shares with Kurose.[1]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Like Kurose, Tendo is nervous around Makima and insists that she doesn't want to join the special division.[2] Tendo appears to have some sensitivity as she suggested stepping out to give Aki some space when she and Kurose found him crying.[3]

Plot[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

Tendo's life was ruined by the Gun Devil which was her motivation for joining Public Safety though she never tried to kill it herself, believing it to be impossible.[4]

Katana Man arc[edit | edit source]

Tendo and Kurose were waiting at a train station in Kyoto for Makima's arrival when they recieved word that Makima had been killed on the train in an ambush. Makima disembarks the train covered in blood but unharmed. When the two of them ask Makima if she was shot, Makima simply responds that she wasn't hit.[5]

Makima tells Tendo to rent out a nearby shrine with the highest possible altitude so that they can assist the special divisions in Tokyo.[6] They travel to a nearby shrine with Makima and are both blindfolded while she carries out her attack on the terrorists; Kurose wonders why they need to be blindfolded and Tendo tells him that ordinary devil hunters aren't authorized to know which devils she is contracted with. Once Makima is finished she tells them to remove their blindfolds and that she's returning to Tokyo.[7]

As they arrive in Tokyo they are met by Madoka who passes on a message to Makima and resigns. Tendo and Kurose look at each other nervously and remind Makima that they don't want to join the special division and that they'll only be around for a week to help with training.[8]

Tendo and Kurose travel to the hospital to meet Aki who is recovering after his battle with the Katana Man. They introduced themselves and stated they were here at Makima's request to train the Special Division 4.[3]

Tendo expresses surprise that Aki decided to stay in the Special Division, but that if he wants to stay then he'll have to make a contract with a stronger devil in order to be of use. After Aki shows his determination she leaves with Kurose and they state that they will be back the next day with the necessary paperwork.[9]

Tendo and Kurose lead Aki to an underground facility where devils are kept by Public Safety. When Kurose asks Aki if the woman who visited him at the hospital was his boyfriend, Tendo told him to get his mind out of the gutter.[10] They arrive at a cell which contains the Future Devil which has contracts with two other Public Safety devil hunters.[11]

Tendo and Kurose drop Aki off by car once he's made his deal with the Future Devil, and plan to go sightseeing before returning to Kyoto.[12]

International Assassins arc[edit | edit source]

Kurose, Tendo and another devil hunter from Kyoto named Subaru were summoned to Tokyo to be additional guards for Denji.[13] In the car ride there Subaru asks them about Makima since they've both met her before, but before Tendo can tell Subaru anything a set of road spikes are thrown in front of their car causing them to crash. Three American devil hunters break the car windows and gun them down, killing Tendo, Kurose and Subaru. Joey comments it was a shame they had to kill a woman.[14]
