Other Characters

Atsushi Yadomi

  • Beware the Nice Ones: She is genuinely caring towards Jintan and Poppo when they visit her house, and implies that she missed seeing them when she remarked that it had been a long time since they last visited. However, she apparently chews Anaru out so much over the false rumors that Anaru decides to run away to the secret base.
  • Curtains Match the Windows

Anaru's so-called "friends," who could be better people on the whole.
