Characters[edit]

Keiki Kiryū (桐生 慧輝, Kiryū Keiki)
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono[1] (Japanese); Clifford Chapin[3] (English)
Keiki is a second-year high school student, library helper and member of the calligraphy club. After cleaning up the club room he found a love letter left for him along with a pair of panties, and is now trying to track down the "Cinderella" who left these items for him.
Sayuki Tokihara (朱鷺原 紗雪, Tokihara Sayuki)
Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu[1] (Japanese); Mallorie Rodak[3] (English)
Sayuki is a third year student and president of the calligraphy club. She is a hardcore masochist who longs to be Keiki's "pet". She repeatedly uses hidden cameras to gain material with which to blackmail him into satisfying her fetish. She'd known about Yuika's fetish from the first time they met and immediately became fierce rivals, constantly fighting for his attention.
Yuika Koga (古賀 唯花, Koga Yuika)
Voiced by: Rina Hidaka[1] (Japanese); Madeleine Morris[3] (English)
First year Yuika is an assistant librarian with Keiki. One quarter Caucasian she has blonde hair and blue eyes, and is initially shy and stand-offish, but warms up to Keiki's persistent attempts to get to know her. She's secretly a sadist who wishes to make Keiki her slave. She found out about Sayuki's fetish the first time they met and has been fighting to "protect" Keiki from "the Witch's" clutches.
Mao Nanjō (南條 真緒, Nanjō Mao)
Voiced by: Iori Nomizu[4] (Japanese); Kristen McGuire[3] (English)
Keiki's classmate and dear friend. She frequently hangs out with him and Shoma. She's secretly a fujoshi who constantly fantasizes about Keiki and Shoma in homoerotic situations, which she writes and illustrates in a published series. She begs Keiki to become an actual couple with Shoma to help fuel her fantasies and aid her in her work.
Mizuha Kiryū (桐生 瑞葉, Kiryū Mizuha)
Voiced by: Kaede Hondo[4] (Japanese); Emily Neves[3] (English)
Keiki's younger sister. She's very close to her brother and frequently "flirts" with him as Keiki puts it, ranging from pampering him and seeking to have him pamper her to sneaking into bed with him claiming suspicion he'd finally awaken as a siscon. It is later revealed that she is the "Cinderella" who left her panties, and that she was adopted after the death of her parents and thus non-blood related, and has exhibitionist tendency, frequently strip naked in Keiki's room.
Shōma Akiyama (秋山 翔馬, Akiyama Shōma)
Voiced by: Keisuke Koumoto[4] (Japanese); Jordan Dash Cruz[3] (English)
Keiki's best friend. Though popular he's a confirmed lolicon. He regularly acts as a confidant for Keiki, helping him to figure out who the "Cinderella" may have been.
Koharu Ōtori (鳳 小春, Ōtori Koharu)
Voiced by: Ayaka Ōhashi[5]
Koharu is a third-year from the Astronomy club. She's a stalker who engages in constant voyeurism. She is extremely tiny, resembling a small child. She's in love with Keiki's lolicon friend Shoma, but worries that despite her "loli" appearance he'd still refuse to date her on account of her being older than him. She thus uses secretly-taken photos to try and blackmail Keiki into helping her.
Ayano Fujimoto (藤本 彩乃, Fujimoto Ayano)
Voiced by: Anzu Haruno[5] (Japanese); Emi Lo[3] (English)
Ayano is a second year srudent, and vice-president of the student council. She engaged in olfactophilia, and though she does sniff around boy's locker room, she became especially attracted to Keiki's smell and frequently ask for his underwear.
Okita-sensei (沖田先生)
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori[6] (Japanese); Cassie Ewulu[3] (English)
