Characters

Bocchi Hitori

Voiced by: Chisaki Morishita

She can’t talk well with other people. Her behaviour is extreme.
[NB: Her name in Japanese, ‘Hitori Bocchi’ is a synonym for ‘lonely’ in Japanese]

Nako Sunao

Voiced by: Minami Tanaka

Bocchi’s first friend in middle school. She is sitting right before Bocchi. She looks cool and gives a scary first impression, but in reality she is very gentle and cherishes her friends. She follows Bocchi around as she tries to make friends. As a rule she doesn’t do what she doesn’t want to do.

Aru Honsho

Voiced by: Akari Kito

The vice-president of Bocchi’s class. She does things properly and always has a smile on her face. She somehow became the counselor of everybody. Behind that attitude lies a rather sad reason. Only Bocchi and Nako know her true character. Aru’s goal is to become a perfect person by the time she graduates from middle school.
