Yuri Asakusa (Voiced by: Saori Onishi)
Yuri is a second-year high school student. She has a lighthearted older sister vibe and a laid-back personality. She is also exceptionally positive. She’s the type who causes a variety of misunderstandings due to her being kind to everyone. She joins her school’s ASMR club and tries her best each day to become the ASMR Koshien champion. She is quite the carnivorous girl and comes on strong when she’s motivated. She is always holding back her desire to adore something.

Panda Kuramae (Voiced by: Akari Kito)
Panda is a second-year high school student. She is Yuri’s best friend, and the two are inseparable. Though a millennial, she talks in outdated expressions. She loves Yuri and gets gloomy when others are too friendly with her. She has a complex about her first name and gets angry when others don’t call her by her last name. She is quite the herbivorous girl and gets upset when others come on too strong. She’s also a bit of a clean freak.

Ume Toranamon (Voiced by: Mayu Sagara)
Ume is a first-year high school student. She wears virgin-killer clothing, loves stuff like yumekawa, and livestreams on social media. She was Panda’s underclassman in junior high and seems to be particularly fond of her name. At her core, she is a negative person with tons of complexes, and from time to time that side of her leaks out through hurtful words and actions.

Tsurugi Kanegafuchi (Voiced by: Lynn)
Tsurugi is a third-year high school student. She is a cool beauty and a perfectionist. Due to her overbearing presence, she is called “Iron Girl” by those around her. She is interested in Ume but is too prideful to say so. She seems like a bit of a sadist, especially considering she likes to tease those she likes. In reality, though, she’s a masochist. She has a longing for cute things but doesn’t think they suit her.

Toto Asakusa (Voiced by: Miyu Kubota)
Toto is a fifth-year elementary school student and is Yuri’s younger sister. Though she has a bit of a precocious side, she is a kind girl with a motherly nature. She has a bad habit of trying to let out her maternal side by playing house. She looks up to Tsurugi and wants to be like her someday.

Kaori Asakusa (Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi)
Kaori is a tall, sexy 37 year old. Though married, her husband travels for work and is rarely home. She loves to eat and cooks too much food, to the consternation of her daughters. She is clumsy and often breaks dishes, forgets her purse when she goes shopping, and chases barefoot after stray cats.

Ore-kun (Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita)
A guy reincarnated as a dummy head microphone.
