On the wide, sandy court, you have only one ally. What kind of play will these two show us in beach volleyball, where your partner is more important than anything?

Characters & Voice Actors List

Haruka Oozora

Voice Actor: Kana Yuuki

Haruka has just moved from Tokyo to Okinawa and is a second-year high school student. She has a cheerful and bright personality. She’s much taller than girls her age so she’s constantly worried about finding shoes that fit her as well as clothes that suit her. She’s great at sports, but she’s a total newbie when it comes to beach volleyball.

Kanata Higa

Voice Actor: Saki Miyashita

Kanata is Haruka’s cousin who lives in Okinawa and is also a second-year student like Haruka. She used to play beach volleyball, but since she didn’t grow taller like she thought she would, she gave up. She has a quiet, introverted personality. She was dragged into it by Haruka, so she will restart playing beach volleyball with Haruka.

Claire Thomas

Voice Actor: Atsumi Tanezaki

Claire is also a second-year student like Haruka and Kanata. Both her and her twin sister Emily have always got excellent grades, and now, the two as a pair also currently hold the 2nd highest scores across all of Japan. Claire doesn’t sweat the small stuff and has a bit of a sloppy personality. Thus, she immediately found a kindred spirit in Haruka whose personality is similar to hers.

Emily Thomas

Voice Actor: Rie Suegara

Emily is also another second-year high school student like Haruka and the others. She has a serious, quiet personality and is always quarreling with her older twin sister, Claire. As well as putting her all into beach volleyball training after school, she is also a member of the student council. She has always looked after the relationship between Kanata and Narumi as a friend.

Narumi Tooi

Voice Actor: Miyuri Shimaburuko

Narumi is a second-year high school student at Fukuchiyama Academy. She was formerly paired up with Kanata, but after Kanata’s setbacks, the pair gradually came to a natural end. Currently, she is paired up with Ayasa and they are the current high school champions. Due to the sequence of events in the past, there is still some ill feelings between Katana and Narumi.

Ayasa Tachibana

Voice Actor: Kanae Itou

Ayasa is also a second-year student at Fukuchiyama Academy and Narumi’s current partner. When she was visiting a beach for practice, she was invited by Haruka to play, and that was what originally got her into beach volleyball. With her bright and open personality, even those who are meeting Ayasa for the first time find her easy to talk to.

Akari Ooshiro

Voice Actor: Chisaki Kimura

Akari is a first-year student at Haruka’s high school. She’s in showbiz, so because of that, she’s out of place with those around her and is isolated in school. After being challenged to a beach volleyball match with Kanata, she joined the beach volleyball club. She’s trying to also get the hang of being a manager as well.
