The series is a first-person story, with each weekly episode featuring one of 12 different "pillow boys" who sleep beside the viewer.[2]

  • Yayoi Chigiri (千切 夜宵, Chigiri Yayoi, Voiced by: Shinnosuke Tachibana): Flower arrangement boy. He is a 17 years old and Yonaga's twin brother. He appeared in episode 10 along with his twin brother.
