Magia: Knight Resolve
Illustrated by: Kei Toru
Voiced by: Rie Takahashi

One of the initial playable characters. A magical girl with a strong sense of justice. When she was young, she became obsessed with a knight of justice in a picture book, and since then, she's wished to become a knight that can help people in trouble as well. She also was influenced strongly by her father who was part of a rescue squad, and she prefers saving people's lives over defeating the enemies in front of her.

  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: Sasara acts as one to Asuka Tatsuki, who tries to self-flagellate for every perceived misdeed.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Sasara is functionally a magical girl rescue worker, always prioritizing rescuing civilians over fighting witches.

  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Witch's kisses put people into a catatonic state after they're taken out of a barrier, so for all the good she does, Sasara never gets so much as a "thank you". Sasara hates the fact that she wants someone to praise her for doing the right thing. She gets a bit better once she teams up with Asuka.
  • Fleur de Lis: One on her skirt as a magical girl, reflecting her admiration of the knights of old.
  • Hair Decorations: A red butterfly clip in her civilian outfit, that her Soul Gem takes the place of when she transforms.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Her weapon of choice is a sabre.
  • Hostage Situation: Gets stuck as a hostage in a grocery store in her backstory.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Sasara aspires to be one, inspired by both the knights in picture books and her father, a rescue worker.
  • Advertisement:
  • Showgirl Skirt: In her magical girl form, on top of a miniskirt.
  • Small Steps Hero: Sasara prioritizes saving the people trapped in witches' barriers over fighting the witches themselves. This drives a wedge between her and Asuka when they first meet, as Asuka prioritizes defeating the witch over everything else.
  • Storm of Blades: Sasara's Magia, Knight Resolve, has her summon glowing broadswords and launch them at the enemy, with a few more falling from the sky for good measure.
  • Too Many Belts: At least three, though one does hold her scabbard.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A in her magical girl form, and Grade B in her school uniform.

Type: Attack
Magia: Myriad Meese
Illustrated by: Sasagi Koushi
Voiced by: Ayaka Nanase

One of the initial playable characters. An elusive magical girl who wanders about searching for her own place. Because she cannot figure out what she likes, her dreams for the future, or even her own identity as a person, she carries a lot of anxiety due to her nebulous future. Befitting the only child of a family that runs a café, she is always calm. She wished to be there where her boyfriend was when he had an accident.

  • Bare Your Midriff: In her magical girl form.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: From the narration, it's pretty clear that the only reason why Shizuku and Fuuin weren't officially dating was because Shizuku's father disapproved of their relationship, mostly because Fuuin was a 'searching for my calling' kind of homeless vagrant.
  • Deadly Disc: Her weapons of choice are a pair of chakrams.
  • Desperately Seeking A Purpose In Life: The boy she made her wish for and was planning her life around died before her eyes, so now she has no idea what to do with herself.

  • Fingerless Gloves: She sports a pair in her magical girl form.
  • Friendship Denial: After Yachiyo finds her working for a 'shady group', Yachiyo takes her into her inner circle. Shizuku is very grateful of the gesture, but later has a second thought when she thinks she's disturbing the group's dynamic, despite they're planning to accept her no matter what. Shizuku leaves the Nanami Household without telling anyone, but the gesture is enough sign to sadden Iroha and Yachiyo.
  • My Greatest Failure: Shizuku's crush got in a horrible accident, so she wished to be taken to his location. But when she got there, all she could do was watch him die.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: A bustier crop top in her magical girl form.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: In her magical girl form.

Masara Kagami
Base rarity: 3*
Type: Attack
Magia: Invisible Assassin
Illustrated by: H2S04
Voiced by: Shizuka Ishigami

One of the initial playable characters. A magical girl who rarely feels emotional highs or lows. She was born into a calm household that didn't have much strife, and her parents loved her as she grew up. But perhaps naturally, she developed a very cold personality and leads a quiet and detached life. Meanwhile, on the inside, she yearns for excitement. It is unknown what exactly she wished for.

  • Broken Ace: She's quick at picking up skills, her family is very stable, and she never lacks of anything. It instead makes her bored with life because she never really has anything going on. She took up both swimming and magical girl contract thinking that those can bring some excitement but because she's doing good at both, they only become a momentary thrill and she returns to being her unmotivated self.
  • Critical Hit Class: Her personal guarantees critical hits for one turn and her connect's sole effect is giving one of the highest critical hit chances in the game, meaning she more or less counts as this.
  • Emotionless Girl: Masara's affect is pretty... flat, and she doesn't understand why seeing Kokoro get hurt makes her feel bad.
    • The witch in "Howa Howa Girl" event stole everyone's most treasured items. Masara's dialogue is only that she's wondering why everyone seems busy, implying that she has nothing with sentimental value.
  • Giant Poofy Sleeves: In her magical girl form.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Downplayed. Masara doesn't understand why someone would want to hang out with her, since as far as she can tell, they're not getting anything out of it.
  • Hidden Depths: She really likes watching documentaries on TV because it always gives her random trivia she didn't know previously.
  • Invisibility: She disappears before some of her attacks. Her Magia, Invisible Assassin, has her vanish and then go to town on her enemies.
  • Jumped at the Call: Masara was sick of being bored with her life, so she contracted because she thought it might interest her. She got bored of it once the novelty wears off.
  • The Spock: Thinks of life in terms of "merits" and "demerits", without any regard for how feelings factor into it. For instance, when Kokoro wants to hang out with her and share sweets, she can't see how it benefits Kokoro.
  • Tin Man: She bemoans not being able to find interest in her life, and envies people who get excited about things.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Masara does, in her magical girl form.

So, when Konoha will no longer listen to reason at the climax of the 'Azalea' event, it alarms Hazuki of a possible third party manipulating Konoha.

  • The Rival: When it comes to her interaction with Nanaka, Hazuki is The Rival to Nanaka's The Hero, mostly because Hazuki has a less benevolent and more selfish motivation compared to Nanaka, and she's still portrayed this way even in her own side-story.

  • Saving the Orphanage: Why she and her friends became magical girls.
