Tada Mitsuyoshi (CV: Yuuichi Nakamura)
Tada is a second-year high school student and member of the school’s photography club who also works part time at his grandfather’s coffee shop. He aims to be a photographer and uses his late father’s camera. Despite being quiet and somewhat serious, he’s very kind to others and also has a cat.

Teresa Wagner (CV: Manaka Iwami)
An exchange student from Luxembourg with a warm and cheerful personality and beautiful smile. While her Japanese is quite good, she’s a huge fan of an old Japanese play which results in her occasionally using odd expressions. She’s frequently seen with her best friend Alexandra who came with her from Luxembourg.

Kaoru Ijuuin (CV: Mamoru Miyano)
A close friend of Mitsuyoshi’s and another member of the photography club. He’s excellent at cooking and spends a lot of time at the Tada coffee shop so he’s also grown close to Mitsuyoshi’s grandfather, but Nyanko Big absolutely hates him.

Alexandra Magritte (CV: Shino Shimoji)
An exchange student who came from Luxembourg alongside Teresa, Alexandra is an extremely stylish girl with red hair. She’s a very dear friend of Teresa’s and she cares a lot about her safety. Alexandra is both intelligent and athletic, and due to her generally serious face she came come across as intimidating, but she’s actually friendly and a big fan of romantic films and novels.

Hajime Suzamoto (CV: Yuuichiro Umehara)
Hajime is the president of the photography club and a third-year student. The other club members call him Pin-senpai. He’s extremely intelligent and also a talented photographer, but unfortunately he also has a tendency to say what’s on his mind without thinking it through. He’s a big fan of Hina, a model and idol, and he’s close friends with Hinako.

Hinako Hasegawa (CV: Shizuka Ishigami)
A second-year student who was forced into the photography club due to it not having enough members. She’s in the same class as Mitsuyoshi and Ijuuin and is the class president, so the photography club members usually call her President. She’s trying to learn to be a more outgoing person.

Kentaro Yamashita (CV: Hiro Shimono)
Kentaro is a first-year student and the youngest member of the photography club. He’s tall and thin with soft hair that he always pins back giving him an androgynous, beautiful atmosphere. He went to the same junior high school as Mitsuyoshi whom he absolutely adores and looks up to, often following Mitsuyoshi around like a puppy which he’s frequently teased for. Despite being a huge animal lover, he’s hated by animals for some reason which upsets him (and this of course includes Nyanko Big).

Yui Tada (Inori Minase)
Yui is Mitsuyoshi’s younger sister, and she has a bright and energetic personality. She loves mystery novels and has a crush on Yamashita. While he hasn’t noticed her feelings, she’s terrible at keeping them a secret and everyone else around her is aware of the crush. After the death of her parents, she was raised by her brother and grandfather.

Nyanko Big
The Tada family cat. He’s absolutely massive and got his name from the family wishing for him to be big. He’s also a bit picky about who he likes and isn’t very fond of Ijuuin or Yamashita.
