Third-year student and student council president. She is a diligent student and has good grades and is even popular with the students, but for some reason she wants to dissolve the anime research club.

Ayame Osaki (VA: Natsumi Takamori)
Second-year student and vice president of the student council. She has great energy but tends to do everything on her own. She is very active and is looking up to the student council president, Tsubaki. Because Tsubaki is thinking so much about the anime research club, Ayame herself cannot stand the sight of it.
Matsuri Toda (VA: Miyu Takagi)
Second-year student and accountant of the student council. She hardly shows any reaction and is does her job professionally and calmly. She looks up to Tsubaki’s resolute attitude. She is friendly with the energetic Ayame.
Beibei Yang (VA: Kana Hanazawa)
A high school student from Beijing. She started watching anime to practice Japanese but quickly became addicted. She came to Japan to attend anime events.
Masato Gomon (VA: Makoto Furukawa)
He is the adviser of the anime research club. His specialty is ancient writings. He is a big fan of movie equipment and gives consultations with the equipment he stores in the anime research club room. He does whatever he wants and is very rough around the edges, which sometimes leads to trouble.
Toru Roppongi (VA: Naomi Maruyama)
He is the advisor of the track-and-field club and homeroom teacher of Mino and the others. He is rather feminine and students look up to him because he expresses himself rather strongly, but he trusts his students, no matter if they are in his class or his club. He doesn’t know a single thing about anime.
Kaede Hondo has left a video message
Kaede Hondo (voice of Minoa Asagaya) has left a video message to introduce her character. She starts by pointing out Minoa on a picture behind her. The story of the anime is about Minoa joining the anime club of the school. The only problem is that she doesn’t really know anything about anime. Luckily, all the people around her love anime with a passion and introduce her to its world, explaining to her all the things she needs to know until…
This is where Hondo teases her fans and asks us to watch the anime to know what happens. She was also surprised while reading the script in preparation for the series and that there are great things happening in the series, which fans can look forward to. She ends the video saying she will do her best as Minoa. Take a look at the video!
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.
