Yui Obata (VA: Rie Takahashi)
First year at Sakaneko Academy. Minoa’s friend. Member of the track-and-field team. She is worried over Minoa, who somehow got caught up in the Anime Research Club. She is warmly watching over her. She has many secret fans at school. She loves yakiniku.
Mitsuki Nakano (VA: Junta Terashima)
Second year at Sakaneko Academy. Part of the Anime Research Club. A handsome guy and very popular with the girls. He loves anime idols more than anything. When he talks about something he likes, he completely changes. He is a good senpai who helps Minoa when she is having trouble.
Kai Musashikai (VA: Setsuo Ito)
Second year at Sakaneko Academy. Part of the Anime Research Club. His favorite anime genres are ones that include battles with supernatural powers. He usually gets avoided by other students, because he keeps quoting anime heroes. He thinks he has supernatural powers himself. He is called ‘Kaikai’ by his friends, but he doesn’t acknowledge that nickname. He is on good terms with Mitsuki, because he talks to him like she does to any other person.
Erika Aoyama (VA: Anju Inami)
Minoa’s senpai and in her third year at Sakaneko Academy.
Part of the Anime Research Club. She is the leader of the club. She doesn’t have a favorite anime genre and watches anything, but has strong feelings toward magical girl anime for young girls. Her hobby is cosplay. During middle school, she lived in the US because of her parent’s work.
Minoa Asagaya has just entered Sakaneko Academy. She is new to anime but her classmate Arisu invites her to join the Anime Research Club. There she meets her classmate Miko and a few senpai that love anime, so Minoa starts to get attracted to it more and more. However, the student council tries to dissolve the club at any possible occasion, and without noticing that the end of the world is near, they talk about anime in different locations like the club room, in Akihabara, at the hot springs, and other real-life locations from anime.
