She’s a second year in the Regular Department at Seisho Academy. Before she met Lili, she had never played an instrument. She is one of the few people who can see Lili and because of that, she was chosen to participate. Since meeting Lili, her whole world’s been turned upside down. She now is a participant in the concours, which at first, she was really hesitant to participate. Because she’s a ‘normal’ student, many people in the music department weren’t too fond of her participating at first.

He has little sense of social boundary. Kazuki has an enormous appetite, as he is constantly eating (especially baked goods). He quickly befriends Kahoko. Because of him, Kahoko learned the true meaning of music, that it is enjoyed by everyone. After that Kahoko began to love and enjoy music better. In the middle of the series,he starts to call Kahoko “Kaho-chan”, instead of the usual “Hino-chan”, thus suggesting he has a rather obvious crush on her.

• Belongs to the soccer team (position MF)
• In middle school, he was on the soccer team and the track team at the same time.
• His best subjects are science and mathematics

Another second year General Education department student, and one of Kahoko’s closest friends. He and Kahoko met after he ran into her, nearly knocking her down a staircase, saving her in the nick of time. Their friendship eventually grows, and she even confesses to him that she knew nothing about violins. He looks out for her and often helps her. Their relationship is often mistaken as that of a couple by other people in the school and even by Ryotaro’s ex-girlfriend. He is popular among the other students and had the respect of most male students. The female students admire him but find him a little hard to talk to.
Ryotaro is the star of the soccer team, being very skilled at the sport (and even outdoing some third years). He is a very gifted pianist but quitted playing in public because of an unpleasant experience at a junior concert. Kahoko accidentally discovered his hidden talent, and he forced her not to tell anyone. He, however, revealed that secret in public when he helped Kahoko in the first round of the concours by being her accompanist, after which he, as well, was chosen to join the concours. He doesn’t get along with Len, and they often get into disagreements over petty matters. His feelings for Kahoko seem to gradually deepen as the series progresses.

First Name: Len (I’ve seen it spelled “Ren,” but “Len” is the correct spelling.)

Seiyuu/Voice Actor: Kishou Taniyama
First Anime Appearance: Episode 1
First Manga Appearance: Volume 1, Chapter 1

• Almost everybody in his family is involved with music.
• His best subject is English. Athough apparently he’s not bad in German either.

Len is a surly, quiet and rather cold violinist who normally behaves contemptuously toward and around everyone. He was a child prodigy, coming from a family of renowned musicians. His mother, Misa Hamai, is a very famous pianist and his father is a well-known violinist. Because of this, many people take his brilliance for granted. He seems very cold towards those that he comes into contact with, even his admirers, to whom he rarely pays any attention.
Before he met Kahoko he didn’t believe music was enjoyable, though after spending time with her, Len slowly began to enjoy music and his music changes because of her. He slowly warms up to Hino and even gives her advice on how to hold and stand properly with the violin. People think that he acts harshly towards Hino, but deep down in his heart he is really concerned about her (though he may not show it). As the series progresses, he realizes his feelings for her. He’s slowly affected by Hino and his mother says that he has changed his character. His mother knows that Hino is the one that affected him or changed his personality. He can also play the piano as well, which may be due to the influence of his famous pianist mother, Misa Hamai.
