A group of 30 young men and women go on a bus tour to Nanaki Village, a shadowy village with an urban legend of being a utopia.

- Mitsumune (光宗)
- Voiced by: Kōdai Sakai
- A seemingly naïve, gullible and optimistic boy. He joined the tour because he was tired of his overprotective and emotionally abusive mother. Because he attended an all-boys school, he rarely talks to girls and fears that he falls in love and gets manipulated too easily by other people.

Since then, he has felt that his identity has been locked away.
- Masaki (真咲)

- A mysterious and emotional girl on the tour whom Mitsumune takes upon himself to defend. When she was young she created an invisible character in her mind named "Reiji" to be her close friend and buddy with whom she could chat and spend time with. However when she realized that she was the only one who could see and interact with Reiji she started secluding and doubting herself. When she heard rumors about a village which can make your trauma take form and appear, she visits Nanaki village to ascertain herself that Reiji was real and meet him for real. However during the last episode Reiji takes Form and appears before her as her Nanaki explains to her that he was an imagination that was created by her to be her partner and friend. Unable to accept reality she flees the area. Reiji tells Mitsumune to chase after her. When Mitsumune catches up to Masaki he tells her that he will take Reiji's place for her in her heart and be with her so she could share all her feelings and thoughts with him. Blushing upon these words she is finally able to accept that Reiji was an illusion. Reiji's nanaki than disappears from Nanaki Village. Masaki is then finally able to leave along with Mitsumune.

In actuality, Hayato is deeply possessive of Mitsumune and tries at every turn to reinforce that Mitsumune needs him due to his own feelings of powerlessness stemming from years of physical and emotional abuse by his parents, who would beat him and lock him in their attic with a picture of his grandmother who had died there after her senility began hurting the family's public image. He hates Masaki as he believes she is "seducing" Mitsumune away from him and has tried to murder her on one occasion to remove her from Mitsumune's life.
