Saya Kisaragi

The main protagonist of the series, Saya is a cheerful and bright girl who loves her father and friends. She sings songs about completing her chores and the good weather on the way to school. Since neither her nor her father are adequate cooks, she often eats breakfast in Guimauve, a small restaurant owned by Fumito Nanahara. Although she seems a bit ditzy, she bears a heavy duty, to defeat the Elder Bairns and protect everyone she cares about.

Tadayoshi Kisaragi

Tadayoshi is Saya's father and runs the shrine where they live. He is the one that sends Saya out to fight against the Elder Bairns though he cares deeply for her and worries for her often, always asking how she is feeling.

Fumito Nanahara

Fumito is a friend of Saya whom works at a cafe names Guimauve (Guimauve is french for marshmallow). Fumito always makes Saya breakfast in the morning and bento for lunch at school as he seems to have feelings for Saya and even calling her his "most important person." But he is actually a filthy bastard.

Nene and Nono Motoe

Nene and Nono are twins and are Saya's best friends. They are completely in synch with each other and will finish the other's sentence. You can tell the twins apart by the part in their hair.

Shinichiro Tokizane

Tokizane is a classmate of hers with a cool and calm demeanor. He doesn't seem to care much for school and finds Saya's naive attitude to be quite strange; he also has a crush on Saya.  

Kanako Tsutsutori
