Jungle wa Itsumo Hare Notchi Guu cartoon characters

Har? (ハレ) (Hale in the manga)?

The usually patient and sweet-natured Har? (whose name means 'fair weather') is usually troubled by Guu's joy in creating chaos and he is prone to anxious rants or tantrums whenever Guu does something unnatural. This is accompanied by a sudden downpour of rain. Har? is used by his mother, Weda, to do household chores and he is teased by Guu for having an Oedipus complex, exhibited in his competitive nature trying to keep Dr. Clive away from Weda. He gets worried about any other male character trying to win over Weda, such as Asio, coming to a boil in an episode where he throws himself into a competition over rights to her for a year, with Dr. Clive, Mari, and Uigher. On the rare occasions that he imbibes alcohol, he becomes what Weda refers to as "a bad drunk": enraged, surly, extremely violent, capable of causing explosions, alternating between violence and high-pitched laughing and skipping fits, and more than willing to attack and verbally abuse anybody and anything unfortunate enough to catch his attention (especially Dr. Clive, who Har? severely beats to a pulp before throwing him through a tree). He even managed to out-yell the savagely bipolar Hiroko Yamada to tears, and wouldn't let up on insulting her character for some time. Har? tends to think about things too much, and Guu takes advantage of that by psychoanalyzing Har? at every opportunity, and playfully taking advantage of Har?'s neurosis. Hare is also seen reading the Hare+Guu manga.

Guu (グゥ) (Goo in the manga)?

Guu's stomach world is a world, filled with buildings, hundred legged cats, and a nice young couple of lovers that have been trapped there for ages (but apparently don't mind their predicament). Other than Har?, no character seems to be aware of Guu's strange nature (or for that matter the bizarre circumstances surrounding everything else in the series). The weird events that occur because of her are only ever acknowledged by Har?. Everyone who is eaten by Guu, only to be spat out later (excluding Har?) dismisses what happened as "sleeping" (occasionally, dreaming about Guu's Stomach world). Har? even dismisses his first time in Guu's Stomach but is quickly proved wrong. There are other strange things Guu can do, which defy the laws of physics, logic, and reality, such as (but not limited to) superhuman strength, elongate her body parts, breathe underwater, teleport, time travel, cause people to switch bodies, read minds, cause disco music to play suddenly, switch her face (from a cute face to a completely plain face), transform into a giant kaiju monster version of herself, and incite mental breakdowns in Har?, though the latter is more of a talent than an actual power. She apparently has more than one stomach and cares enough about the people and creatures she swallows to keep dangerous things away from the area she keeps her 'guests'.

Adult Guu

A resident living inside Guu who is separate from Guu and can take over whenever she feels like it. Fortunately for Guu and the rest of the residents inside her stomach, she cares about them and their wants and desires, going so far as to steal Ame from Hare. She's also the one responsible for ripping off the village elder's chest hair, making him permanently traumatized of Guu. She also appeared one time to act as the school doctor after Clive tried unsuccessfully to give Guu a physical, causing Guu to tie-up Clive.

Weda (ウェダ) (Ueda)?

Weda is Har?'s mother. She is carefree and inclined to binge drinking. Because of her laziness, Har? looks after her. She left life in a rich home at the age of 14 and raised Hare in the jungle by herself which, due to her chronic irresponsibility, is quite difficult to fathom.


Hare's baby brother. Born in the OVA, Har?+Guu Deluxe, but has barely any significance in the story. His name comes from "Megumi no Ame" (Rain of Blessing), When Har? goes back in time, and met up with the past Weda, he claimed that his name was Ame rather than Har?, and when he got back in the present, Weda remembered the boy from the past while naming her 2nd child.

Mari (マリィ)?

A student of the school that Har? and Guu attend and Reiji-sensei's younger sister. Mari is friendly towards Har? (Later turning into a crush), and imagines herself as a tragic, shōjo manga-esque character. She really loves Weda because she never had the chance to have a mother, and pictures Dr. Clive (father figure) as a part of her family as well. She gets extremely jealous of Hare whenever he goes to the city, always imagining Hare hooking up with various women.

Dr. Clive (クライヴ)?

The doctor of the school, Clive is apathetic towards everyone in the jungle, unless they happen to be female. He came in from the city shortly after the series began, and had a 'relationship' with Weda while she was 14 years old, which, as Weda admits, resulted in Har?'s birth. The anime and manga state that Dr. Clive is Har?'s biological father but despite this, he engages in violent arguments with Har? (most of the time the center of it being Weda). Highly perverted, he uses every opportunity to "reignite his old relationship" with Weda, which usually end in failures until he chases after Weda when she leaves for the city. He has white hair when the series begins, but eventually dyes it black.

Reiji-sensei/Lazy-Sensei (レジィ) (Leiji)?

Reiji is the teacher of the students of the school. He likes to stay up all night watching anime, so he falls asleep during the day. The school does not have many students so they all are in Reiji's class. Unfortunately Reiji would much rather rest than teach, as a result little learning ever occurs.

Chourou/Village Elder (ボーア)?

Chourou is an old man with a lot of chest hair, which he feels is a sign of his strength and manliness. Adult Guu steals it and this is used as a plot device. (As a result of this he has taken to calling her "Lord Guu" and keeping a safe distance.) As the village elder, he leads the pokute (recurring and common creatures in the jungle) hunts, and has dozens of recipes in which pokutes are used. He falls in love with a cat that looks almost like him which he ends up giving to Hare (much to Hare's chagrin) and even disappears for a while when his chest hair growth goes out of control. By the ends, he's merely a furball with a head.

Toposte (トポステ)?

Toposte is the grandchild of Chourou and like him, does not wear a shirt. He initially does not have chest hair like his grandfather, though he fears it is genetic. He attends at the school. When he does ends up growing chest hair, he accepts it happily after learning that the chest hair is how Chourou got girls attracted to him back when he was young.

Rebecca (レベッカ)?

Weda's drinking friend who was raised by pokutes that take care of her, even after she started living in the village. They have been revealed as the source of her "magically cleaning" house (of which she has no knowledge). She is used as a female stock character, filling out various roles as Weda's friend.

Uigher/Wiggle (ウイグル)?

One of the older students, the lack of influence he has on the storyline is occasionally used as a gag. He is madly in love with Weda, but never gets to prove his love, usually resulting in a comedic attempt to hang himself. Even after Weda gets married to Clive, he still fantasizes and pursues Weda.

Gupta (グプタ)?

Another upperclassman in the school, he is fairly impulsive but not particularly mature. Starts off with long blonde hair, gets it cut short and blackened when Dama first appears, then it grows back out to a brown color later.

Waji (ワジ)?

An obnoxious student who always laughs when he talks, and tries to encourage Guu to do the same, to questionable results. He is sometimes found weeping in the forest for unknown reasons. Some theorize that this is because his father beats him.

Lavenna (ラヴェンナ)?

The oldest female student in the school. She is a bit air-headed and unsure of herself. Completely lost in her own world as she fails to pay attention or care about events going on around her when she runs errands for her mom.

Pokute (ポクテ)?

Creatures abundant in the jungle, often seen in people's houses. They look like armless rabbits with human faces. Pokute were supposedly sent from the heavens as protectors, although the villagers use them as a food source.


One of three people living inside Guu's stomach world. A kind and friendly office lady, she does not seem to mind living inside of Guu. Seiichi and her are good friends and are even possibly a couple. She takes care of Har?'s pet bird Hee after Guu eats him.


One of three people living inside Guu's stomach world. Like Tomoyo, he is a friendly high school boy who doesn't seem to mind living inside of Guu. He is good friends with Tomoyo and is even possibly her boyfriend.

Hiroko Yamada/"Angry Yamada"?

One of three people living inside Guu's stomach world who first appears in episode 8 of the TV series. She is a 22 year old who attempted suicide by throwing herself into the ocean and was rescued by Guu, who swallowed her while fishing (and while bringing in a massive haul of various sea life, she technically didn't catch any fish). Unlike Seiichi and Tomoyo, Hiroko is mentally unstable and Bipolar, making her dangerous and unpredictable. In fact, she tried to kill herself in an elaborate plot to take revenge on her cheating husband by dying, going through hell, and coming back as an evil spirit to haunt him for the rest of his life. She now spends most of her time in Guu's stomach world drinking alone on a hill, where most of the other inhabitants have now learned to avoid. Became fast-friends with Yumi-sensei when Guu had swallowed Yumi for a short time.

Asio (アシオ)?

A servant at Weda's parent's estate, he has very scary eyes (though it wasn't always the case, was stated to have beautiful eyes when he was younger). Loves Weda, but she thinks of him as a brother. He is often the one who goes to pick up Weda after nights where she had been drinking specifically heavily (revealed to be quite frequent due to Weda's habits). Often coming up with ideas that seem not to be possible, Har? is put off by him from their first meeting.

Bel (ベル)?

Another servant, she is prone to gigantic nosebleeds when thinking of Weda as a child (this implies she has a perverted obsession with Weda). She and Asio have often been used to fill in the story of Weda's past. Though Weda is quite happy the two of them returned, their odd tendencies often frighten Har?, who is quite easily unbalanced by their (and Guu's) acts that seem to defy the laws of physics. Hates Clive with a passion. In the manga, it is implied that Bel is actualy a man in drag.

Sagin (サギン)?

A reticent boy. Along with Rāya, he seems to be part of a running gag in the series as both of them never talk, or are always interrupted when they are about to. (Like having a video interview with everyone, where when their turn came the camera switched to the next person immediately when they open their mouths.)

Rāya (ラーヤ)?

A reticent girl. Along with Sagin, she seems to be part of a running gag in the series as both of them never talk, or are always interrupted when they are about to. (Like when Har? asks for an answer from everyone, and the camera pans over everyone, skipping past Sagin and Rāya when he looked at them.) She only speaks two phrases in the entire course of the anime series and OVAs- "The Crotch" and "Briefs".


Weda's trigger-happy bodyguard after she, Hare, and Guu go to the city. After graduating high school, he arrived in the city and was beat up one night, and was later found by Bel. It's because of her that he got his job. At first he doesn't get along well with Weda, saying that she wasn't worthy of Bel's love, but that changes after they foil a bank robbery. He may or may not have feelings for Bel (as episode 23 implies). In addition to being trigger-happy, he is a paranoid lunatic and once tried to kill a boy who bullied Hare causing him to ironically protect his own abuser from Robert.


A substitute teacher that took over for Lazy while he was sick. Ironic since she absolutely hates children, and has never had a boyfriend. Extremely short fuse. She exhibited a 1-way attraction to Hare after Hare was so nice and understanding towards her plight, and eventually breaks it off in the end to be with Toposte.


Hairdresser from a close by village that became obsessed with her long-lost white-haired husband. Eventually told to live for new love, and starts training her body to be in top shape. Meets, fights, and marries the bank robber, only to get seduced by an assassin later. After realizing she was only being used by the assassin, she resumes her happily married life with the bank robber.

Bank Robber

Complete video game nerd who gets along with Hare due to their mutual love of videogames. They'd be friends if he wasn't constantly taking Hare as a hostage. Eventually marries Dama after being bested by her in battle.


A self-centered girl around Hare's age that attends school in the city, who only cares about herself, and pleases other to not make enemies so she can get ahead in life. Hare ends up becoming her first true friend.

Chet and Addie

Dubbed the "stupid couple" by the village, they're a couple that have been madly in love with each other for the past few years. Chet claims to have come from England on a research trip, only to stay in the jungle when he laid eyes on Addie. A running joke later in the series is that whenever Chet and Addie are together on screen, they're usually doing something that needs to be blurred out.
