  • Attention Whore: Wants Izumi to look at him alone.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Played for laughs. Whenever Izumi pays attention to the other guys.
  • Flower Motif: Violets. Particularly purple violets, which show that the giver is preoccupied with thoughts of love concerning the receiver. And oh boy, does it fit this guy well.

His parents recently divorced with his father having custody of Masumi in the aftermath by the time Act 5 occurred and not wanting Masumi to be alone, he had asked for Masumi to come to America with him. While well-meaning, his Parental Neglect on Masumi means that he didn't know about Masumi joining Mankai Company, so his son isn't as lonely as he used to feel and actually has another place to call home.

  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Only shows the sugar to Izumi.

Despite the fact that he isn't that good with comedy himself, he wants to help Kumon however he could.
  • Becoming the Mask: Literally. While he doesn't have the flexibility that Banri has, Juza is capable of understanding and empathizing with the characters that he played as, to the point of becoming said character and embody them as well.

  • Younger Than They Look: Banri at least mentions once in the in-game practices that he doesn't believe that Omi is in university due to his appearance.

  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: The start of "Tales Of Chivalry: Ginji The Wanderer" has him coach the other members of the autumn troupe like this.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appears as early as the prologue as the yakuza that the company was indebted to.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: With Izumi. He once watched the company's practices in secret until Izumi finds him and brought him in to watch the practice together. Izumi was only around for one week in the town then and they haven't seen each other again after that.
  • Loan Shark: Introduced as one early in the story. This was because Sakyo doesn't want the theater that he is fond of to be destroyed and lose the one connection he has to the memory of Tachibana Yukio and Izumi herself in extension, thus, he offered to lend the slowly falling company the Yakuza's money.
  • Image Song: Monologue in the Rain
  • Parental Substitute: Azami see's him as one when he was younger, since Sakyo's boss is more often than not, out and about. And even with their now strained relationship, Azami still see's him as a father like his own blood related father.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He has an appreciation for reading Shoujo Manga, and is part of the troupe's Shoujo Manga Appreciation Club with Muku and Kazunari.
  • Yakuza: Part of the Ginsenkai Yakuza gang. He is officially allowed to leave after the events of the third Autumn play, "Tales of Chivalry: Ginji The Wanderer".

Azami Izumida

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/azami_fullbody.png
Voiced by: Seiya Konishi
A boy who shares the last name of Sakyo's yakuza boss, so it's very likely that he is his son who was mentioned in the Autumn Troupe's third play. He joins the Autumn Troupe in year 2.

  • Poor Communication Kills: A lot of the Izumida family's misunderstanding could have been solved had Azami talked about why he wanted to become a makeup artist to his father.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The reason he ran from home? His father found out about his dream of becoming a makeup artist. Albeit, the reason that his father didn't approve of it is that he misunderstood Azami's intentions for becoming one. Thinking that he is doing makeup as a form of rebellion for his position as the heir than wanting to be a makeup artist because he enjoys it, wants to keep the memory of his connection with his mother alive and pursue that dream seriously.
  • The Runaway: He ran away after his father broke the makeup set that he bought with his own money out of a misunderstanding and refused to come back.
  • Shared Family Quirks: A Parental Substitute example. As much as Azami hates to admit it, he actually takes after Sakyo a lot. His view of romance that any kind of public affection should be happening after engagement or marriage, has Taichi noting that it's similar to how Sakyo thinks in Part 2, and having an interest of Shoujo Manga.
  • Statuesque Stunner: He's very tall (Standing at 179cm at the age of 14) and is good looking too.

Since he is Raised by Grandparents he actually knows the meanings behind his flower (one of them is "I want you to love/like me again" and "return to my side.") and he did mention in the backstage story that he can relate to them because of the time he and Tasuku drifted apart.

  • Raised by Grandparents: His outside work skit with Masumi has him mention that he is raised by his grandmother like Masumi did.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Eggs, especially egg omlettes. Omi uses this info to get him to eat even when performance is approaching (since he then forgets to eat from excitement) as their outside work skit shows.
  • You Remind Me of X: Mentioned by Masumi in the "Midsummer Sparkle Memory" event that Tsumugi reminds him of his own grandmother.

Tasuku Takato

Voiced by: Takuya Sato
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/169px_tasuku_full.png
A serious and stoic actor who turned down a seat at GOD Throne. Friends with Tsumugi.
  • Alliterative Name: Tasuku Takato.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Since they're childhood friends, he and Tsumugi have one for each other, though they both get embarrassed by them (even if Tsumugi tends to slip when feeling fond or nostalgic).
  • Childhood Friends: With Tsumugi. Tsumugi giving up on acting put their friendship to an end until Tasuku joined the Mankai Theater troupe where they have a chance to fix it.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Once again, with Tsumugi, due to their Childhood Friends status. Though it's more of theatre partners, in this case. Considering some of their interactions, one might wonder at the Hetero part, as well..
  • Flower Motifs: Orchid.
  • Image Song: Beyond The Wall
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: More like, there's not many people who can read him, and off stage he's prone to Poor Communication Kills. Tsumugi later on takes a role as his interpretor (even though them drifting apart was caused by said poor communication), and by the "Die by the Sword" event, Winter Troupe has gotten as good as him on reading Tasuku.
  • Lovable Jock: He is good at sports and is also friendly to others.
  • Old Shame: After the events of Part 1, Act 3, anything related to his old role while still in GOD-ZA company has him see them in this light. Especially as he gets type-casted as a Princely Young Man in many of the plays he took part in during his time in GOD-ZA company. The fact that he can act in other roles without being type-casted in Mankai Company is a relief for Tasuku himself.
  • Princely Young Man: Type-casted as this trope a lot during his time in GOD-ZA company.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Minus the hair, Tasuku's older brother, Fuyuki, looks just like him.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/192px_homare_full.png
A published poet. He joins Mankai Company after seeing a street performance. Hisoka's roommate.
  • Butt-Monkey: Most people in Mankai, but especially Hisoka and Tasuku, often take jabs at him given his eccentricity.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Played for Drama in the winter troupe main scenario story. He is able to read and guess on people's intentions, but he is incapable of empathizing them too well that it almost broke the group up.
  • Image Song: Peculiar Poet
  • Insufferable Genius: Touts himself as the most intelligent person in the room, artistically. He also never shuts up about it.
  • Large Ham: Loves making up poems and reciting them as dramatic as he can.

Azuma Yukishiro

Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/azuma_full.png

  • Crosscast Role: Twice. The first time, he plays as Kazumi for Mankai Company's Christmas event. The second time, he plays as Orin in "To Die By The Blade".
  • Hates Being Alone: The last time he said goodbye to his family is the last time he saw them, prompting him to take a counselor like job so he won't be alone again.
  • Image Song: Aria on a Moonbow
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His hair is tied up.
  • Older Than He Looks: We won't say what age he is exactly, but he has very youthful looks.
  • Vague Age: No one knows how old he is. It's to a point that his character page has his age written off as "???".

Guy

Voiced by: Satoshi Hino
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guy_fullbody.png
A mysterious man who seems to have come from Citron's country. First appears in the Spring Troupe's third play. He joins the Winter Troupe in Year 2.

Mankai Staff and Management

    Player/Izumi Tachibana 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/izumi_full.png
The player character. Her default first name is Izumi, though it can be changed. After receiving an invitation to Mankai Theater, she decides to go there to find out about the whereabouts of her father, who had been missing for six years. Under certain circumstances, she becomes the new director of Mankai Company in order to save it.
  • Cool Big Sis: To the company members who are still in school.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair, brown eyes.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father disappeared eight years ago.
  • Dude Magnet: Most, if not all, of the boys now under her wing take a liking to her eventually.
  • Forgotten Childhood Friend: Sakyo.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Izumi is her default name, but you can name her however you please.
  • In the Hood: We don't usually get to see what Izumi looks like in the game. Unlike most mobile games where the heroine's face stays hidden, Liber Entertainment makes a point of showing the faces of their heroines, which isn't the case for Izumi for a large chunk of the game. Her full appearance is readily available on the main website though.
  • Large Ham: Claims that she is this when she acts, which is why she doesn't do it anymore.
  • Legacy Character: Her father, Yukio, was the former director of the Mankai Company. She invokes this when she was trying to get Sakyo to back off on seizing it.
  • Mysterious Past: At some point in her past, she decided to never act again because someone at her former acting company told her that she had no talent for it. Not much details are known about this aside from an early flashback.
  • Smurfette Principle: As Mankai is traditionally an all-men company, she is the only female there.
  • Supporting Protagonist: She may be the player character and has her on personal arc to work through, but she's still very much taking a backseat to her actors.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: In part 1, Act 2 of the main story, an old video tape the Summer troupe found of the first generation Summer Troupe has Yukio appear, with Yuki commenting that he looked just like Izumi.
  • Taught by Experience: Her time in her previous acting company actually helps in coaching and training the actors in the reborn Mankai Company as she used her knowledge of acting to help the actors to improve.
  • Team Mom: Shares this with Omi when he joins. She checks up on the members and help cook for the members's dinner.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She really loves curry. Yuki gives her the nickname "Curry Alien."
  • Vague Age: We're not sure how old she is. Just that she is likely in her early 20's, possibly 19 during the start of A3, as she is younger than Sakyo and Itaru note  but older than Masumi and Tsuzuru, who is 18 during the start of A3note . At the very least she should be old enough to drink.
  • You Remind Me of X: Chikage once mused in Act 5 that Izumi reminds him of August, his fallen friend.

     Isuke Matsukawa 
Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/isuke_full.png
The manager of Mankai Theater. He sent a letter to the Tachibana's to request his help to save the theater, a letter answered by Izumi.
  • Butt-Monkey: Often subjected to be the butt of jokes from Kamekichi.
  • Lovable Coward: Ducks in fear when the situation goes south and often times, lack awareness of how dire the situation can be, but his devotion to Mankai Theater is real.

     Kamekichi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kamekichi_full.png
A cockatoo and Mankai Theater's mascot.


  • The Casanova: Apparently dated a bunch of birds outside of being the company's pet.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Doesn't like the name he is given because Kamekichi is a name fitting of turtles than a bird... but for all his complaints, he responds to said name anyway.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Yes, Kamekichi's a pet. But his choice of words when he speaks are... foul. To put it lightly.
  • Team Pet: The pet and also mascot of the theatre.

     Tetsuro Iwai 
Voiced by: Yuuji Kameyama
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tetsuro_full.png
A tall quiet man who is in charge of creating props for and the sets for Mankai Company's productions.
  • Gentle Giant: He's a nice guy despite his imposing appearance.
  • Heroic Mime: Usually, it's the other party that interprets what he wants to say.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't talk much. So much that the one time he speaks is considered a miracle.

     Yuzo Kashima 
Voiced by: Taiten Kusunoki
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuzo_full.png
A former member of the first generation's Spring troupe. After the original generation disbanded, he becomes an actor at a different company and a teacher at a theater school.

     Ken Sakoda 
Voiced by: Shou Nogami
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sakoda_full.png
Sakyo's underling who is very devoted to Sakyo. Due to this, he often helps out with the company and is very familiar with the actors and staffs as a result.
  • Big Brother Worship: Not that they're related, but he is heavily devoted to Sakyo to the point of calling him "Aniki".
  • Last-Name Basis: Most of the characters refer to him by his surname than his given name.
  • Yakuza: Is an underling of one. As of the end of Act 7, he is implied to have become the head of Ginsenkai after the problems with Azami and the chairman is solved.

    Yukio Tachibana 
The previous director of Mankai company and Izumi's father. His disappearance drove the start of the plot.
  • Famed In-Story: Even in his disappearance, Yukio is well known throughout the theater community.
  • The Ghost: He has yet to be seen in person.
  • Giver of Lame Names: It has to be said since he named the Team Pet cockatoo Kamekichi.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: His disappearance served as the catalyst and motivations for many characters. To wit, his disappearance drove the whole first part of the main story.

    Ensemble Members 
A group of people asked to work with the Mankai Theatre. They serve as extra actors for the troupes.
  • Ascended Extra: Ichiro Makita. He's the only character among the Ensemble Members to appear in the story due being a part of the same Yakuza as Sakyo.
  • Com Mons: A lot of their cards are N or R, so you'll see them often.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Hasegawa was picked with this in mind, with Izumi saying he'd be more suited for sexy and flaunting roles. His past as a model probably helps too.
  • Proud Beauty: Iku certainly knows he's got adorable looks, and he's alright with it.
  • Rule of Three: There are only ever three ensemble members at a time per troupe.
  • Suddenly Voiced: The ensemble cast are originally without a voice actor until August 29 2018 where all of them are now voiced.
  • The Tease: Winter Troupe's Yuichi Hasegawa is one of the few characters explicitly interested in Izumi, and never misses a chance to flirt with her.

GOD-ZA Company

     Reni Kamizaka 

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu

The president and director of GOD-Za company.


  • Archnemesis: To Mankai Company for a majority of Part 1 of the main story. Especially to Izumi. Since he had a great grudge on her Disappeared Dad and wants Mankai Company and the Tachibana's out of the picture at all cost because of it.
  • Pet the Dog: For all his vitriol against Mankai company, he gave actual genuine advice to Guy when he asked for a way to improve his acting during the "To Die By The Sword" event.

     Haruto Asuka 

Voiced by: Mitsuhiro Ichiki

One of the top actors of God-Za company.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call him by his real name. Just don't.
  • Embarrassing First Name: His real name is Genta Yamada, which he really hates and used a stage name as an actor because of it.
  • Everyone Has Standards: In Tag Match Halloween '18, He was livid, to put it lightly, when he saw a participating actor who was defeated by Mankai company earlier, steal the team's candy without a fight as revenge for his loss and proceeded to berate said actor, slipping into a country like accent as he did so. For all his condescending interactions with Mankai company and his desperation to keep his position in God-Za company right at that moment, he'd rather win his fight with his rivals in a fair fight rather than foul play. And also to thank Yuki in his own way for fixing his costume early in the event story.
  • Jerkass: His first comment about Romeo and Julius's street act is to call it a shoddy story and is condescending to Mankai company actors in general. That is saying something.
  • Sore Loser: In the few events that he appeared in and had him lose against Mankai company, his reactions screams of it.
