Rino Rando

Age: 14
Voiced by: Yukari Tamura (Japanese), Kira Vincent-Davis (English)

Our innocent and cheerful main character who, on her first day, not only becomes the class representative, but is also given the title of Secretary of the Best Student Council. Among the Best Student Council, she is the only one that does not have any good ability or specialty, but has rather intense emotions. As such, she is prone to easily cry when hurt, lonely, or showing sympathy.

Pucchan/Tetsuya Rando

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura (Japanese), Kira Vincent-Davis (English)

A hand puppet who's Rino's best friend as well as her older brother who died at a very young age. Pucchan has a fighting ability and his "Burning" power he uses to fight is one of the reasons why the other members accept Rino to be in Best Student Council This power also helps him eventually take Kanade's place as the head of the Jinguuji conglomerate to free her from it.

Kanade Jinguuji

Age: 18
Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese), Kelly Manison (English)

The very beautiful executive director and founder of Miyagami Private Academy and the president of the Best Student Council. She created Miyagami Academy to be the "eternal paradise" of a limited time, and along with Nanaho Kinjo, created the Best Student Council to make sure of that. She is also the future successor of the Jinguuji conglomerate, which she plans to change from the inside due to its questionable practices. Her long good-looking and beautiful blue eyes and long lavander hair are enough to to attract numerous boys from outside of the school, especially during swim practice. This, combined with her calm and caring personality, makes her the most respected person at the school.

Nanaho Kinjo

Age: 17
Voiced by: Junko Noda (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)

One of the two vice presidents of the Best Student Council (arguably the council's second-in-command) and also the leader of the Assault Squad.

The second vice president of the best student council. Despite this, she is not the leader of the Covert Squad, but is the top ranking member. she has the gift or special skill of information retrieval. She is actually a spy for the Nafrece Intelligence Organization, which is trying to find out Kanade's secret, the power of the Jinguuji. Her father is the president of a rather large company that the organization supports. She is torn between her family's business and the Best Student Council, not wanting to leave her family or the Best Student Council (though she never admits to it). She comes from a wealthy family and is also mixed with one quarter of foreign blood from her paternal grandfather.

Mayura Ichikawa

Age: 17
Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)

The overstressed accountant for the Best Student Council. She is a staid and straight-laced girl who's often seen as the Straight Man of the other members. She always has her abacus in her hand and is often driven insane by the council's struggling budget to the point of going berserk on members who use the budget or school's property on their own. Aside from managing the budget, Her other hobby is window shopping and often makes time to spend with her friends when she's not busy.

Age: 14

A classmate of Rino and Ayumu. She has two brothers and one sister, which is why she does not live in the Gokujou-ryou like the other members of the student council. She has a crush on Kanade Jinguuji and is jealous of Rino.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk
  • Bi the Way: She has a secret crush on Kanade, though she claims that she just heavily admires her.
    • But Not Too Bi: She volunteered to serve as a distraction to boys during Miyagmi's swim practice to not only protect Kanade from them, but to grab their attention. Too bad the swimsuit she decides to wear isn't to well-received by the boys.
      • There was also the brief interest that she and Lance shared with each other.
  • Character Development: While she initially hates Rino for being so close to President Kanade, she learns to not hold so much of a grudge that she would do something to hurt Rino, which Kanade wouldn't want. As a result, she slowly grows more fond of Rino, though not entirely. It also helps that she has to watch over her younger siblings after the death of her own parents., which she finds somewhat relatable. This becomes one of the contributing factors of her eventually becoming the council's next vice president.

    Covert Squad 

Seina Katsura

Age: 18
Voiced by: Kumi Sakuma (Japanese), Sasha Paysinger (English)

Presumably the oldest member of the Best Student Council, the captain of the Covert Squad and Minamo's elder sister. She was born into the Jinguuji, but her power had never awoken unlike Kanade and thus had to change her name. Being a close friend and presumably a relative of Kanade's since childhood, Seina is also a good adviser to her, letting Kanade tell her things that she wouldn't be able to tell Nanaho or any other members. She keeps watch of almost everything that goes on in the school and dormatory. Despite her situation with all of this and her sister's illness, her personality is almost always cheerful and optimistic.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: Depending on how serious the situation is, she'll slightly deepen her normally high pitched and threaten anyone who interferes with their objective. Let's just say that it was a side of her that Kotoha wasn't used to.
  • The Atoner - While she's never been evil, she takes the mantle of head of the V Organization to make up for her feelings of guilt for feeling glad that Kanade and not her had the Jinguuji power..
  • The Pollyanna
  • Team Mom
