     Asahigaoka Branch School Students 

Ichijo Hotaru

A fifth grader who transferred to Asahigaoka from Tokyo. Tall for her age, she has a crush on short-for-her-age Komari, whom she often makes plushies of.
Voiced by: Rie Murakawa

Miyauchi Renge

Renge, a first grader, is the youngest of the cast. She is adorably eccentric, can play the recorder and is talented at drawing.
Voiced by: Kotori Koiwai

Koshigaya Komari

A second-year middle schooler, Komari is only around 130cm(4'3) tall and is often mistaken for a child. She is easily frightened by scary things.
Voiced by: Kana Asumi

  • A-Cup Angst: Very envious of her well-endowed Hotaru.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Berserk Button: Anytime Natsumi calls her 'Koma-chan'.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She has one.
  • Dojikko: Despite being the oldest girl in school and trying to act accordingly, she is prone to stumbling around and being a klutz when doing a chore.
  • Height Angst: Doesn't like it when people mentions her height.
  • Lethal Chef: Strangely, gets worse as the series continues. First she made onigiri normally. Then she forgot to put water in the rice to cook it. Then she tried to make a bento and burnt everything. Hotaru ate it anyway.
  • Older Than She Looks: Komari may be in 2nd year middle school, but she looks like she's 8.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Scary Things

Koshigaya Natsumi

A first-year middle schooler, Natsumi is rather relaxed and negligent of school work.
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura

Koshigaya Suguru

A third-year middle schooler and Komari and Natsumi's older brother, Suguru is the only named male character. He rarely if ever speaks, but is responsible and good at sculpting with clay. He can also play the guitar.
  • The Comically Serious: He shows almost no reaction to some of the things Natsumi puts him through. Then there's his high speed getaway in episode 6.
  • Hidden Depths: Never speaks, has demonstrated the ability to make sales-worthy clay anime figurines and play the guitar.
  • Megane
  • The One Guy
  • The Quiet One
  • The Reliable One: He quietly retrieved his sisters when they 'ran away', and Hotaru when she got lost while walking her dog.


Miyauchi Kazuho

The only teacher at Asahigaoka Branch School and Renge and Hikage's older sister. Kazuho can sleep any time, anywhere. She often sleeps in and arrives late to school for this reason. Her family owns a rice field.
Voiced by: Kaori Nazuka

Kagayama Kaede

Kaede runs the local candy store. Due to the shortage of children in town, she is perpetually short on cash and for this reason also rents skis, futons, etc. Kaede acts cool and calm, but is very kind and gets along great with Renge.
Voiced by: Rina Sato

Koshigaya Yukiko

The mother of Suguru, Komari, and Natsumi


Miyauchi Hikage

Renge and Kazuho's sister who attends high school in Tokyo, six hours away by bullet train.
Voiced by: Misato Fukuen

  • Shameless Self-Promoter: A very mild example, as the first thing she does upon coming home is to brag about studying in Tokyo and riding the bullet train. Before Hotaru reveals that not only did she grow up in Tokyo, but she took a plane to get to Asahigaoka.

Fujimiya Konomi

Natsumi and Komari's friend who lives next door and attends the "local" high school as a third year student.
Voiced by: Ryōko Shintani

Ishikawa Honoka

A first-year elementary school student who became friends with Renge during the summer holidays.
Voiced by: Ayahi Takagaki
