"Thanks to everyone who voted for me. But please spare me... I can't take this. I'll stick to my job."

— Sanbica Norton in "Spy"

Sanbica Norton (サンビカ゠ノートン, Sanbika Nōton) is a Single-Star Virus Hunter and the lead doctor in the Hunter Association.[1]


Little is known of Sanbica's appearance, as she is always seen wearing a very concealing medical gown, including gloves and a surgical mask. She seems to be short of stature, with big, dark eyes.[1]


Sanbica is timid and insecure, to the point she stammers when speaking. Although she did not wish to become chairman, due to her hating being in the spotlight, she still thanked her supporters for their votes.[2] It is very likely that, despite her lack of self-confidence, she is excellent in her field of competence.

Sanbica places in 11th place

Sanbica and Cutie Beauty tie in 11th place in the first round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election.[3] Then in the second round she ties 8th place with Cutie, Teradein Neutral, and Bushidora Ambitious.[4] In the third round she ties 9th place with Bushidora;[5] and 11th place in the fourth round.[6] She appears in a video presentation for the 16 candidates for chairman, presented by Beans. It's stated that Sanbica was bewildered being nominated and doesn't want anymore people to vote for her.[1] In a way, Sanbica gets her wish in the fifth round as she fails to make it to the top 8 candidates. She thanks everyone who voted for her, in her loser speech.[2]
