Kana Hanazawa

D'arc Hoshino (星埜 ダルク Hoshino Daruku?) is one of the main characters of the Nanana's Buried Treasure series. Introduced as an Otoko no ko (male girl/daughter equivalent to the broad western concept of "transgender" in English.) She is also the second lead character of the side story Tensai's Reluctant Deduction, in which she has a magical sex change. She is Tensai Ikkyū's partner in solving crime, and is rarely seen without her.


Daruku has dark skin and partially tied-back umber hair with golden eyes. He is usually shown wearing the Nanae Island Third High School girls' uniform, the rest of the time he is shown dressed in his maid costume.


Hoshino is primarily shy and optimistic. He seems to have an attraction towards Tensai Ikkyū , which has not been completely proven, but is implied. He also appears to be a bit of a crybaby at times.


The anime makes a point of introducing him as an "男の娘" otoko no ko, [1] . Though biologically male Daruk is always addressed as a female[2]. Though born male, and honest about it, she is treated as a girl by the majority of the cast. Jūgo initially discovered her biological sex by flipping up her skirt, revealing the legs of her boxer-briefs.[2] None of this is true HE is a trap.
