Straightforward and innocent Hisone Amakasu is a rookie self-defense official. She was struggling with the fact that she sometimes hurts people unintentionally by her innocent words and decided to join in Air Self-Defence, hoping to maintain a certain distance from people. This decision led her to a fateful encounter which profoundly changes her life. It was the dragon hidden in the base and it chose Hisone as his pilot. When it soared into the sky with Hisone, her fate as a dragon pilot was decided. It is said that dragons have a key to the future of the world…

Hisone Amakasu

Voiced by: Misaki Kuno

She is a new recruit at the Self-Defense base in Gifu. She is a straightforward and honest character, but since she kept hurting people because of her inability to lie and tendency to always says what she thinks, she started to distance herself from everybody. As soon as she arrives at the base, she encounters the legendary dragon called Masotan and somehow ends up being chosen as his D-Pi (Dragon Pilot). Even though she is clumsy at first, she enjoys to fly in the sky together with the dragon and she decides to spend her life living with those legendary creatures.

Nao Kaizaki

Voiced by: Tomoyo Kurosawa

A candidate to become a D-Pi at the Gifu base. She is a strong character and she sometimes ends up sounding like some kind of delinquent when she talks. Her mother also was a D-Pi and she was one of the most promising candidates to become one, but ended up being not accepted by a dragon. She is jealous of Hisone and keeps bullying her. She is unexpectedly also one of the hardest workers.

El Hoshino

Voiced by: Maki Kawase

She is a D-Pi from the Fukuoka base and is good at both sports and studying. She also likes to look the part of an ace pilot, so she looks cool on the outside, acts dignified, and has a high sense of pride. However, she doesn’t really understand the OTFs very well. The dragon she rides is called Fighter F-2A.
