Premise[edit]

Oresuki revolves around Amatsuyu "Joro" Kisaragi, an ordinary high school student who is invited out alone by two beautiful girls: the upperclassman Sakura "Cosmos" Akino and his childhood friend Aoi "Himawari" Hinata. Expecting to hear their confessions, he triumphantly goes to meet each of them in turn. However, both Cosmos and Himawari confess to Joro that they like his best friend, Taiyо̄ "Sun-chan" Ōga, instead of him. He reluctantly agrees to help both girls pursue Sun-chan on the hope of dating the loser, only to suddenly be confessed to by the unremarkable bookworm Sumireko "Pansy" Sanshokuin, who is, ironically, the girl Sun-chan is in love with.

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

Amatsuyu Kisaragi (如月 雨露, Kisaragi Amatsuyu)
Voiced by: Daiki Yamashita[1]
Amatsuyu, nicknamed "Joro" (如雨露, Jōro), is a second-year student who is best friends with Sun-chan, the likable ace of their local baseball team and childhood friends with Himawari, who follows him everywhere. One day, Joro is asked out by Cosmos, the Student Council President, and Himawari for two consecutive dates over the weekend. At the end of these dates, both girls confess that they're in love with Sun-chan, at which point Joro reveals that he purposefully cultivated the "friendly, obtuse boy" personality to lure both girls into liking him and that the true personality he keeps hidden is much more harsh and aggressive. He reluctantly agrees to help both girls pursue Sun-chan on the hope of dating the loser, only to suddenly be confessed to by the unremarkable bookworm Pansy, who reveals that she knows all of Joro's secrets and fell in love with his true personality.
Sumireko Sanshokuin (三色院 菫子, Sanshokuin Sumireko)
Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu[1]
Sumireko, nicknamed "Pansy" (三色菫, Panjī), A second-year student and library helper at Joro's school. Pansy looks like an unattractive gloomy bookworm with long black hair tied in braids, thick glasses and a sharp tongue towards Joro. In truth she has stalked him and learned all his secrets and is aware of his dual-faced nature, and blackmails him into coming to spend lunch break time with her at the library. She is in love with Joro, which he doesn't take well. She is very observant of people and could discern Sun-chan's true nature. Beneath her unappealing exterior, she is in fact a gorgeous beauty with a bust size far larger than she typically shows. Following her help, Joro reluctantly decides to visit her regularly.
Aoi Hinata (日向 葵, Hinata Aoi)
Voiced by: Haruka Shiraishi[1]
Aoi, nicknamed "Himawari" (向日葵), is a second-year student and Joro's childhood friend. She is in love with Sun-chan, and requests Joro's help to succeed in her romance. Like Sakura, she begins to realize her feelings for Joro after Sun-chan's true nature is revealed.
Sakura Akino (秋野 桜, Akino Sakura)
Voiced by: Sachika Misawa[1]
Sakura, nicknamed "Cosmos" (秋桜, Kosumosu), is a third-year student and the Student Council President; as such, she is very organized and rarely late to any meeting. Cosmos always carries with her a notebook, which she often uses to take notes and make meticulous plans, as she gets nervous whenever faced with a scenario she hasn't planned for. Cosmos is initially in love with Sun-chan, and originally requests Joro's help to succeed in her romance. However, after Sun-chan's manipulations are revealed, her feelings toward Joro become genuine. She and Pansy form a cordial rivalry, as neither girl intends to lose to the other.
Taiyо̄ Ōga (大賀 太陽, Ōga Taiyо̄)
Voiced by: Yuma Uchida[2]
Taiyо̄, nicknamed "Sun-chan" (サンちゃん, Sanchan), is a second-year student and Joro's best friend since middle-school. He is the ace of the Baseball Club, who is popular in school due to his friendly and caring demeanor. He is the target of affection of both Himawari and Cosmos and is in love Pansy. His warm personality is only a mere facade as Sun-chan is in fact, extremely selfish, prideful and spiteful and has held a grudge towards Joro ever since he learned the girl he liked in middle school liked his friend. Hurt at the prospect of "losing" against Joro, he is well aware of the feelings of Himawari and Cosmos and manipulates them both with uncaring malice in order to destroy Joro's social reputation. He is eventually discovered by Pansy and Joro and is forced to apologize for his actions.

Supporting[edit]

Voiced by: Shiori Mikami[2]
Hina, nicknamed "Asunaro" (翌桧, Asunaro), is a second-year student and member of Newspaper Club who is in love with Joro. She uses her position in the Club to spread false information, isolate Joro from his friends, steal Sun-chan's spot in the Flower Festival Dance, and set herself up as the only girl he can depend on. After her scheme is exposed by Cosmos, she is harshly rejected by Joro and promises to make amends for her actions.
Chiharu Yо̄gi (洋木 茅春, Yо̄gi Chiharu)
Voiced by: Nao Tōyama[2]

Receiving a text from Pansy after a week of bullying, Joro goes to the library to hear Pansy's "true feelings", only to witness Sun-chan flirting with Pansy. Suddenly, Pansy lets out that she knew Sun-chan had tricked Joro by using Himawari and Cosmos' feelings for him to manipulate them into trapping Joro into a bad situation. When confronted into his motives, Sun-chan admits that he had been in a situation like Joro in middle school, only in reverse, and he wanted revenge on Joro for taking away the one girl he had a crush on. Pansy rejects Sun-chan's feelings for her, revealing that she had fallen for Joro after seeing him wait for Sun-chan at the North entrance of Koshien with Sun-chan's favorite foods. Sun-chan then tries to force himself onto Pansy, but Joro comes to her aid and berates Sun-chan for hurting the girls who loved him. The next day, Himawari and Cosmos fend off the bullies (they had also watched the confrontation in another part of the library) and Sun-chan apologizes in front of the class. Joro reports all of this to Pansy, but still doesn't want to keep seeing her in the library. Pansy then undoes her braids and shirt, revealing her true form: a beautiful and large-breasted girl. Joro decides to start visiting her everyday.
