Mihoko Fukuji: The top player in the club. Good at housework but poor at handling electrical items. A warm hearted girl who is sometimes easily moved to tears. Although when it comes to her club mates, she won't hesitate to sacrifice herself.

Voiced by Horie Yui, famous for Ayu Tsukimiya in "Kanon"


Kana Ikeda: Despite being a 2nd grader she is strong enough to be the clubs No 2. She loves and respects Mihoko so much, that she is prepared to give everything she has to win the prefectural preliminaries, occurring as they do in Mihoko's last season. Although her drive and focus to win can sometimes get in the way of her caring for others.

CV(Cast of Voice): Rica Morinaga, Souseiseki from "Rozen-Maiden"


Miharu Yoshitome, conspicuous with her cute glasses and disheveled short-cut hair. As her nickname "Miha-run" suggests, Miharu can appear calm and meek at first sight, but she is in fact very skilled and ranked highly at the club.

Sumiyo Fukabori, a 2nd grader with an ample figure. In addition to her Mahjong skills, she provides much support to the club through her computing prowess.

Seika Bundo is the narrow-eyed freshman of the club, and was previously ranked 78th. But Mihoko's leadership and positive attitude towards Mahjong have improved Seika's play considerably. Now she is a competing member of the team and can easily hold her own amongst the other heroines.
