    Amusement Club 

Akari Akaza

Voiced by: Shiori Mikami
The protagonist... sort of. Thirteen-year-old Akari is just starting her first year of middle school, and she's excited to be reunited with her one-year-older friends Kyouko and Yui. She wastes no time joining her sempais in their "Amusement Club," and after that Hilarity Ensuesoften at her expense.

Kyouko Toshinou

Voiced by: Yuka Ootsubo
Fourteen-year-old Kyouko is a blonde ditz with a crush on Chinatsu and is a constant annoyance to her best friend Yui. Despite her laziness, she proves to be a cram test top-scorer and is also a doujin artist.

Yui Funami

Voiced by: Minami Tsuda
Fourteen-year-old Yui is Akari's childhood friend, as well as the club's sole voice of reason.

Chinatsu Yoshikawa

Voiced by: Rumi Ookubo
Thirteen-year-old Chinatsu originally wanted to go to Tea Club, but ended up in the Amusement Club after the former was disbanded. To her chagrin, her uncanny resemblance to Mirakurun makes her a frequent target of Kyouko's cosplay pursuits.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: A mild example. She's not that bad, but neither is she as innocent and sweet as she first appears (except where Yui is concerned). And then there's Episode 5.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Used to be one as a preschooler.
  • Broken Pedestal: How she appears to some of the younger kids seeing her cosplay as Mirakurun. Or rather, when she breaks character while wearing it. A particularly tragic yet hilarious example occurs in episode 6 of season 2, when she screws up her line and pose. The shocked look on the young girl's face says it all. Later, Chinatsu starts scratching her back with the wand, and the little girl and her mother see it from a distance. Both have Dull Eyes of Unhappiness, and the little girl says "life is bitter". Her mom agrees.
  • Celebrity Resemblance: Chinatsu is a dead ringer for Mirakurun, much to Kyouko's delight and her dismay.
    • Kyouko finally gets her to cosplay — albeit reluctantly — as Mirakurun in Season 1 Episode 6 in order to entertain Mari.
  • Cute Little Fang: When she's being mischievous.
  • Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Inverted — She doesn't remember being the bully who got into an altercation with Yui, Kyouko and Akari as kids.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Green Eyes
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Just... her drawings. Now poor Akari is traumatized!
    • This apparently applies to everything she makes - the muffler and chocolate she made for Yui in season 2 were so incredibly horryfing that they were censored. However, the chocolate she made for practice and, according to her, didn't put effort into, was completely normal.
  • Phrase Catcher: Her unenthusiastic Mirakurun cosplay will inevitably cause children to remark "Life is sour."
  • Sempai Kohai/Single-Target Sexuality: With Yui.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Whenever Yui is involved.
  • Terrible Artist: So terrible that her art goes straight over the fine line between "bad" and "in-universe Nightmare Fuel".
  • Tsundere: While she remains strongly Yui-sexual, Season 2 Episode 1 shows hints of this trope towards Kyouko.
  • Yandere: She's starting to show shades of this come Season 1 Episodes 5-6.

    Student Council 

Ayano Sugiura

Voiced by: Saki Fujita
Fourteen-year-old Vice-President of the Student Council, master of place-name puns, and a tsundere par excellence regarding Kyouko, whom she resents for consistently topping her on tests even with several days' worth of study. Despite several side-by-side appearances with Yui to show their similarity, she is a perfect antitsukkomi when it comes to Kyouko.

Chitose Ikeda

Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki
Fourteen-year-old member of the Student Council who is always seen together with Ayano. While she generally comes of as a rather sweet kid, that belies a rather perverted mind.

Himawari Furutani

Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
A thirteen-year-old freshman and candidate for next year's Student Council Vice-Presidency, known for a rather shapely figure (not to mention well-stacked) for an early teen. She is generally a polite, sweet girl — except towards her rival, Sakurako.

Sakurako Ohmuro

Voiced by: Emiri Katou
Another thirteen-year-old candidate for the Student Council Vice-Presidency, naturally setting her up to a clash with Himawari (one that isn't helped by her complex about her flat chest), with whom she has ambiguously lesbian feelings. Really immature to contrast Himawari's dependability.

Rise Matsumoto

Voiced by: Saori Goto
The fifteen-year-old Student Council President... and a weirdly silent, barely-present one, at that.

    Family and Friends 

Akane Akaza

Voiced by: Yui Horie
Akari's nineteen-year-old older sister with an obsessive fascination for her younger sister and everything related to her.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Cool Big Sis: Fetish for her younger sister aside, Akane is also shown to be a pretty caring and loving sister.
  • Eyes Always Shut: As shown in the manga and Season 2 Episode 7.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac
  • Oh Crap: When her sister almost discovered her siscon-paraphernalia and when she thought, that her sister was crushed by Nishigaki's robot.
  • Orwellian Retcon: Early in the manga, Akane was originally Akari's (unnamed) older brother. He was converted into a girl for the anime, and this change persisted into more recent manga chapters.
  • Sister-Sister Incest: Akane is infatuated with her younger sister.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbian: As if stalking Akari wasn't enough, she has a relationship with Chinatsu's older sister Tomoko!
  • Stalker Shrine: Her whole room is one, devoted sister Akari (although she can hide all of her siscon stuff in a big wardrobe, if her sister from the future visits). She has even an an Akari dakimakura (hug pillow) — covered in lipstick kisses. Kyouko was massively creeped out by the room.
  • You Gotta Have Red Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki

Kaede Furutani

Chitose's twin sister, who's just as perverted as her, but shows it with excessive drooling.

Tomoko Yoshikawa

Voiced by: Ayano Ishikawa
Chinatsu's older sister who has an implied relationship with Akane.

Nadeshiko Ohmuro

Voiced by: Chiwa Saito
Sakurako's older, eighteen-year-old sister and a college student.
