Fufu, I’m so glad we all came to this world. Getting rid of all of you would have been difficult back in Japan. Which is why, of course, I can’t let you guys win this war and go back home. Because Kouki-kun’s going to spend the rest of his days here, with me. Forever.
~ Eri's true nature.

~ Eri ordering her zombie slaves to kill Hajime.

Eri Nakamura is one of the secondary antagonists from the Japanese light novel series "Arifureta Shokugyō de Sekai Saikyō" (From Commonplace to Worlds Strongest). She is one of Hajime Nagumo's sworn enemies and the archenemy of her former (false) best friend Suzu Taniguchi. Additionally, Eri is the self proclaimed mortal enemy and "love rival" of Shizuku Yaegashi and Kaori Shirasaki, who are both childhood friends of her crush Kouki Amanogawa (despite them as Hajime's lovers).

A deluded, evil, selfish, sadistic, and remorseless psychopath, Eri was originally presented as one of Hajime's classmates. She was summoned from Japan alongside many of her school "friends", in order to protect the nation of Tortus from the demonic forces. In Volume 6 however, Eri was revealed to be one of the primary instigators of the Demon Invasion/War on the Heiligh Kingdom (alongside Freid Bagwa). Since then, Eri has openly pledged her support to the Demons, as well as the series overarching antagonist Ehit, eventually becoming one of his apostles. She was also revealed to be the one who manipulated Daisuke Hiyama between Volumes 1 - 5, blackmailing him and forcing him to work for her until Volume 6 when Hajime arrived and foiled her plans, she betrayed Hiyama and left him to die.

Eri is present in both the corresponding manga and anime adaptations. Whilst her role was largely unchanged in the manga, she appeared as a supporting background character in the anime's first season. Eri is set to return in the series second season as one of the main antagonists. She was portrayed by Asuka Nishi in the original Japanese Sub and Megan Shipman in the English Dub.

Appearance

Eri is a rather petite girl, with short black hair kept in a tiny bob. She has brown eyes and is usually seen wearing glasses. Overall, she generates a rather shy aurora. Like the rest of her classmates, she was originally summoned to Tortus in her school uniform. This was traded for for a black dress and boots, with a blue two piece blazer, with gold trimming. As a magic wielder, her main weapon is a wooden staff, which like her attire was probably provided from the kingdoms treasury.

Once she revealed her true personality, however, Eri discarded and broke her glasses. revealing that she didn't actually need them. Her soft, kind expression was replaced with a sinister, evil smirk. After obtaining the power of an apostle, Eri's hair turned silvery grey (similar to Noint's) and she grew a set of angelic wings. With her enhanced power, she traded her staff for a set of greatswords.

Personality

Fake Personality

In the beginning, Eri is portrayed as a calm and quiet girl that loves books. She shown kind and compassionate to make friends with her classmates especially her "best friend", Suzu Taniguchi.

True Personality

While in her act as a "shy girl", Eri is highly evil when she has no concerns about her classmates when revealed she was only pretending to become friends with them as her classmates are nothing but pawns to her due to her hatred towards them but hates Kouki's childhood friends, Kaori Shirasaki and Shizuku Yaegashi worse than her hatred towards classmates (despite they are Hajime's lovers, not Kouki's). She attempted to kill her classmates to make them as her zombie slaves which failed due to Hajime's arrival but only managed to kill one of them, Reichi Kondou (one of Daisuke Hiyama's gang member who he betrayed). Her pretending to make friends with her classmates has really disgusted her for a long time. She has no regards in her actions when betraying them after revealed her true nature as well being Garland's spy. In her retreat to Garland thanks to Hajime's interference, she is none than less glad she is no longer being in a "play house" with her classmates for a long time in her assassination plot on her classmates. She doesn't regard of killing the Heiligh Kingdom's king and nobles. Eri lacked goodness and compassion it was due to her suffering by both her mother and stepfather in physically and mentally as well she lacks parental love.

Due to her suffering from anguish and agony she endured and had a miserable life after lost her birth father from a car accident and later her mother and stepfather were abusing her both physically and mentally which she almost died at the hands of her mother, Eri revealed to her classmates of her true nature as a ruthless, selfish, uncaring, cruel, arrogant, sadistic, insecure and twisted psychopath. Due to her tragedy of her suffering by both her mother and stepfather, She is an evil girl who holds an undying lust for Kouki of wanted to make her boyfriend and wanted to kill all the other girls which includes Kouki's childhood friends who are Hajime's lovers, Kaori and Shizuku and the rest of her classmates as she has killed Reichi Kondou (Daisuke Hiyama's former gang member who he betrayed) but failed due to Hajime's arrival. Upon successfully "obtained" Kouki, Eri is also clingy and delusional but still has no remorse in her psychological abuse on Kouki's fragile psyche in order to keep him for herself.

Due to her immense cruelty and sadism, Eri is an extremely abusing torturer who enjoys enslaving her zombie slaves and torturing the souls of the dead to force them to do her bidding. More than Hajime, she is a very violent sadist who doesn't flinch of her victims' feeling as she enjoys tormenting and inflicting pain towards her classmates, making them suffer in despairs and agonies much of her amusements and joys. She has no qualms of killing innocent people who stood her way when she also caused a massacre against the citizens of the Heiligh Kingdom (beside Hajime's own massacre to both humans and demons worshipers of Ehit).

Eri Nakamura before her betrayal.

Due to Kaori and Shizuku being Kouki's childhood friends (despite the fact they are Hajime's lovers), Eri holds a murderously jealousy towards them and eternally hates them more than her hatred towards the rest of her classmates as she wants to kill them with the rest of their classmates so that she could have Kouki for herself and always considered both Kaori and Shizuku as her mortal enemies. When seeing Kaori was revived by Hajime, Eri's hatred towards her and Shizuku has grown even worse. She doesn't considered Suzu as her best friend but a nuisance who stood in her way to make Kouki her boyfriend. Although she's being terrified of Hajime's mass murders and monstrous strength, Eri also hates him for kept on ruining her plans despite how she personally felt for him months ago, but in her true nature, she was willing kill him as well.

Wait, hold on. Let's talk things through, Nagumo. Look at all these soldiers. They look like they're practically alive, don't they? It's unfortunate Kaori died, but I can at least make her like them. Besides, this way you'll be able to do whatever you want with her. So if you don't want her to rot away, you'll need to keep me ali-
~ Eri's cowardice for Hajime.

Like Daisuke Hiyama, Eri is also a coward despite of her outwardly confidence as she is terrified to die by the hands of her now mutated and murderous classmate, Hajime Nagumo due of his demonic strength, murdering intents and ruthlessness after he murdered Cattleya. She viewed Hajime as a monster for his mass murders and genocides on those who gotten his way even when he ruined all of Eri's plans including prevent her from turning Kaori into Hiyama's zombie sex slave. While Kaori's temporarily death and Hajime marched toward Eri, she begged him to spare her life to bring Kaori back as his slave which only angered the demonic mass murderer despite she had betrayed Hiyama. When failed to kill him after witnessed his wrath of destroying her zombie slaves and murdering Daisuke Hiyama, she is shown to be even more terrified when Hajime prepare to execute Eri for her failure attempts to make Kaori as an undead sex slave for Hiyama when she was unable to try to stab Hajime with daggers until she got away to Garland with the help of Freid Bagwa. Despite of her gaining more power as a hybrid, she wants to runaway with Kouki instead of fighting Hajime due to her ongoing fears for Nagumo.

Ahaha, give it up! She's already dead. I never thought you guys would show up here... Well, I should have expected it since Kaori was here and all... Looks like Hiyama's outlived his usefulness, so how about I give Kaori to you instead? If you promise not to fight me, I'll use my magic bring her back. She won't really come back to life, but at least she'll still look pretty. It's better than letting her rot, I imagine. What do you say?
~ Eri's betrayal to Hiyama and attempted to convince Hajime

Due to her intelligence, Eri is highly manipulative and traitorous even more than Daisuke Hiyama. She manipulated her classmates into making friends with her including Suzu and the emotionally intelligent and her mortal enemy, Shizuku Yaegashi. She has a knowledge of Daisuke Hiyama's previously betrayal of his once failed attempt to kill Hajime only to return into an indestructible and mass murdering monster. She use this knowledge to blackmail Hiyama to cooperate with her to ensure they will get those who they've obsessed until failed due to Hajime's arrival. While In her selfishly betrayal towards her classmates, Eri has no further use for her weak pawns such as Hiyama as she also betrayed him after he outlived of his uses and admittedly revealed that she never saw Hiyama as a comrade or a collaborator but rather just a pawn to her when she attempted to convince Hajime to make Kaori as his slave after witnessing how weak Hiyama was as he was easily defeated by Hajime. While Hiyama facing his death, Eri has no intentions of going back to help Hiyama and abandoned him due to Hiyama being pathetically weak to her future plans. Following her defection, Eri has little to no remorse for her actions and was fined of being branded as a traitor.

After her transformation by Ehit but no longer as a human anymore, Eri is fiercely loyal to the false god as she will do anything for Ehit to ensure letting her get Kouki for herself. And without any trace of humanity left inside of her heart, she is far too evil than before as she has no intentions to rejoice her classmates including her ex-best friend, Suzu even if they would forgive her due to her wanted to slaughter all of her classmates to have Kouki for herself. Even her defeat by Suzu, Eri still will never find resolves as she rather die instead of betraying Ehit despite Suzu ensured her that their classmates would forgive her and her treacherous actions as she attempted to kill Suzu by committing suicide for a self-destruct spell but also killed herself in a process.

During the time of her death (despite of her evilness and psychopathy as well she has discarded her sheds of humanity), Eri has a remnant honorable side when she wondered if she would have meet Suzu first before Kouki, things would turned differently and would have a close friendship.

  • She, Hajime and Shimizu are the only characters within Arifureta to have tragic backstories. Eri's is usually considered to be the worst of the three by fans.
  • Apart from Hajime, Eri is the only other student to have successfully killed one of her former classmates (Reichi Kondou).
  • Along with Hajime and Kaori, Eri can no longer be considered fully human, having been upgraded into an apostle by Ehit.
