Characters & Voice Actors List (from left to right)
Voice Actor: Aoi Ichikawa
A third-year junior high school student tired of his environment and feels like giving up on his life. Seems like he is not communicating well with his family, keeps distance from his classmates and looks at them with a cold attitude. His acquired ability after the drift is still unknown.
Voice Actor: Saori Onishi
A transfer student from Berlin, who seems mysterious. On the first day of transfer, Nagara witnesses her ripping a textbook on the roof. She has a strong will and never changes herself no matter how difficult the situation is. This characteristic is clearly reflected in her eyes looking straight ahead. Her ability is “Compass”, which enables her to see a light that indicates whatever she is looking for from anywhere.
Voice Actor: Aoi Yuuki
A third-year junior high school student who always carries a tote bag with three cats, "Tora, Gen, and Sakura," which her grandmother cherished. She has a self-paced and moody personality, and is honest with her feelings. She is isolated in her community as she doesn’t actively involve herself with others. Her newfound ability is called “Nyamazon”,where her cats brings whatever she desires. Her ability is indispensable for survival life and therefore other students rely on this, but Mizuho does not seem to like it.
Voice Actor: Chiaki Kobayashi
He hates following orders and has a rebellious personality. When students caught the drift, he violently opposed the student organization's move to manage the students, causing a turmoil. His ability, “Slowlight” can control gravity. During the dangerous survival life, Asakaze's ability often helps others and gradually catches attention among the students who struggle to return to the original world.
