Characters / Shira Oka: Second Chances

Go To


The angel who is the main character's guide to high school.

  • Blatant Lies / Paper-Thin Disguise: A girl from Sweden named Satsuko? Sure, why not? It doesn't help that she mistakenly says she's from Switzerland once on the first cycle.
    • Slowly becomes a rather competent disguise the more cycles the player goes through till about 5 where it's damn near perfect. Although, even in the final cycle the main character still has to remind her that's she's pretending to be his cousin, and thus probably shouldn't be hitting on him in public.
  • Guardian Angel
  • Our Angels Are Different
  • Plot Twist Is a bit of Kasumi that died the first time she attempted suicide.

  • Time Travel: She's a guardian angel that sends the main character back in time to suck less.

Aya Hirakata

Voiced by: Stephanie Sheh

The main character's first friend who doesn't like school and is a huge fan of manga and sci-fi. Seems to have a bit of a crush on Hiroshi, or at least to look up to him.


Kiku Matsumoto

Voiced by: Carrie Keranen

A wealthy friend of Aya's who is part of a powerful family. She is part of the Ikebana Club and enjoys dancing.

  • Cool Big Sis: Towards the other girls. Notably, she's the one who thanks you for giving several of them a White Day present.
  • Hime Cut
  • Lethal Chef
  • Lonely Rich Kid
  • Multiple Endings: Most of her big scenes also involve Aya in some way, and since it's easier to gain Aya's approval with lower academic scores, this generally means that her ending comes after Aya's (each ending can only be seen once). However, it is possible to get hers before Aya's. Conversely, with more playthroughs, as one's academic scores go up due to better stats, she's usually the first one to fall in love with the main character.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Aya's red.


Alice Avery

Voiced by: Julie Ann Taylor

An American exchange student who loves playing and listening to music.

Naoko Ogawa

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

A sweet caring woman who had traveled all over the world. She really loves to cook and invent recipes - even if she isn't good at it.

Kazuki Ogawa

Voiced by: Michael Sinterniklaas

Naoko's little brother who loves fixing things and is really smart.

Hiroshi Sakuragi

Voiced by: Jason Griffith

Rena's overprotective older brother. He is a genius and a self proclaimed 'ladies man'. He's into athletics and Naoko.

Rena Sakuragi

Voiced by: Carrie Keranen

Hiroshi's little sister who believes in the supernatural and talks about strange things.

  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She and Aya don't get along despite their similarities.
  • Ditzy Genius: Rena may be a ditz, but she's had several scholarships offered to her because of her writing and art skills.
  • Have We Met Yet?: Probably the only case where the main character can phone someone before they actually introduce themselves and have them NOT think he's creepy. If main character gets her phone number and calls her at the start of a new cycle, not only will she know who he is already (to HIS surprise), he can actually tell her the truth and she won't be the least bit fazed by it.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?? Everything about her. Mostly her ending.

Suzu Inoue

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

A really smart girl and a friend of Kazuki's who makes a habit of making inventions out of junk.

Yui Arakawa

Voiced by: Stephanie Sheh

A shy, mysterious girl who keeps to herself.

Kasumi Kusanagi

A depressed girl who thinks about deep things and feels that no one understands her.

  • Brilliant, but Lazy / Book Dumb: Subverted. Kasumi is rather intelligent, but tends to bomb her tests because she simply doesn't see them as important.
  • Driven to Suicide Happens in every route but her own.
  • Golden Ending Her path is the very last path. Satsuko will even instruct the main character not to bother with this one until he completes the others.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • Loners Are Freaks
  • Jerkass Woobie: She starts off as a very abrasive, unfriendly character. However, the more you learn about her as the cycles progress, the more sympathetic she becomes.

How well does it match the trope?
