Hiro is a full-time student, but moonlights as Nagi Shindou, a professional shoujo manga artist. He is the youngest sibling in a family where his father and sister are both renowned traditional artists. At his core he’s diligent and softhearted, but his outer personality shows otherwise. He communicates bluntly and has difficulty speaking his mind.
He can also be indecisive. He is influenced by his sister, the Shindou twins (particularly the older one), and countless others, and has poor luck with women in general.

”Oniichan? I won’t get mad, so tell me.”
The elder of a set of identical twins. Very athletic. A first-year student, Kei is already a starter for the basketball team. She’s determined to win, knows no fear, and is a sadist. Due to the influence of Hiro Hirono, her ”Oniichan” and friend since they were little, she’s developed a sharp tongue and talks like a man when she gets worked up.

”Nothing in it for me for helping a guy. Now if you were a girl...”
A cameraman in the film club. Aloof, and perhaps nimble in nature. Particularly so when it comes to women. He has a keen sense of observation, possibly stemming from his diplomatic role with the club. He is devoted and meticulous regarding his surroundings, and has been involved in many relationships. However, he is selfish when it comes to filming, and at times can be stubborn, turning the sorrow of others into material.
At present, he has a keen interest in the love triangle involving his close friend Hiro Hirono.
The younger of the identical twins. Very literary. She’s naturally quiet, the polar opposite of her sister Kei. Though she appears calm and collected, she seems childish when spoken to, and is a bit of an airhead. Due to a childhood accident, she lost her left eye and bears a unique handicap.
She does not currently attend school, and would appear to be under recuperation. Has the habits of glancing up at people and of tilting her head.
A young man of mixed heritage, his father a German architect. He has a well-raised, relaxed demeanor, but is weary of the daily grind. Due to his father’s occupation, he has regularly lived abroad his entire life. As a result, he has never developed any close friends, nor fallen in love.
Presently his father is on a business trip and he lives alone with his mother. He enjoys novels and makes good use of his international education to read novels in their original languages.

”Yes! Your dear Mizuki has arrived!”
An energetic girl belonging to the basketball team of Otowa Collegiate’s feeder school. Formerly Kei Shindou’s junior, she is still quite a devoted fan. Mizuki has quite a few connections at Otowa Collegiate due to her relationship with Kei.
Frank and spirited. Direct and rash. Charmed by too many things, and not wary of nearly enough, she’s a bit like a puppy. Admires her ”Kei-sempai” and aspires to be a ”cool woman”, though it’s obvious from her upbringing that it’s impossible. Loves shoujo manga.
A spirited professional violinist and former student of Otowa Collegiate, though he left halfway through to study in Germany. Displays animated optimism, but is actually a realist on the inside. His selfless acts are to hide all traces of his true intentions in order to focus on what lies ahead.
He’s like an older brother to his next-door neighbor Renji. Also a bit of a flirt towards Renji’s mother, Sumire Asou.
