Description

In a rural hot spring town, a grandmother lives with two children, an older boy and a younger girl.
As the boy has no relatives, the grandmother tells him "I have a favour to ask, grow up so that you can make our lives comfortable".
But it was only an idea, while life continued.

After that, several years passed...

After passing an exam, he entered a new school.
Having achieved the highest grades of anyone, the grandmother was overjoyed, but she suddenly died.

He hadn't finished her favour.

About a year later, it's the start of the summer holidays. A "lying girl" appears, and his surroundings start to become noisy...

Description

Kurara enters the story as a transfer student that has returned to Mihoshi-cho after many years. She has apparently met Kazuhiko at one point, but his memories involving her are very blurry as her route begins.

There is relatively little fanfare to Kurara's arrival, but she quickly befriends Yui and Nanano after she transfers to Kazuhiko's school. Her background is quickly glanced over, mentioning that she is the only daughter of Amamiya Masaki, a nationally known businessman that is also owner of the Amamiya Conglomerate (which owns banks and numerous companies).

Description

Midori met Kazuhiko and the gang several years before the story began. She was a member of the swimming club and was usually by herself before she met our protagonist.

She was an incredibly good swimmer, but a car accident ended her prospects. The damage to her spine was permanent, and cost her the use of her left leg.

Still, Midori is weighed down by her inability to walk to the point that she feels no one would find her attractive. This has effectively destroyed any hope she had for a relationship. Midori also feels like she is a burden to others, and prefers to do things on her own. While she tries to use her cheerful disposition to hide these feelings, they have not gone unnoticed. Her father in particular has noticed it, and even mentions that Midori's "true" smile seems to come out only when she's around our protagonist.

Description

Yui is introduced as Kazuhiko's childhood friend and the person that has known him the longest outside of Nanano.

A native of the town of Mihoshi, Yui's family owns a ryokan (a traditional-style Japanese hotel), which is where she spends her free time. While she is next in line to inherit the hotel, she has proven to be irresponsible and whimsical (much to her mother's chagrin). It is because of this that she has come to greatly depend on our protagonist to help her get things done.

Having known Kazuhiko since grade school, Yui knows quite a bit about him and has proven to not hold back when it comes to telling people about what he was like when they were little. As the osananajimi character, she has also had a crush on him since childhood. Being unable to express how she feels, she'll sometimes try to boss him around and is known to have constant arguments with him. Still, the good and bad times Yui has shared with Kazuhiko throughout the years are testimony to how strong her feelings are for him.

On a comic note, Yui has a tendency to jump to strange conclusions when talking with Kazuhiko. She also has an odd fascination with bananas, and is convinced they make a person intelligent.

Description

Nanano is Kazuhiko's younger sister. In reality, she's a girl that his grandmother was already looking after when Kazuhiko was sent to live in the town of Mihoshi.

Being a year younger than he, Nanano has always looked up to him as an older brother, and does her part to help around the house by cooking meals and doing housework. As expected, Grandma Hina's death hit Nanano the hardest. In fact, the topic of her death is one of the few things that can bring down Nanano's normally high spirits, and usually leaves her in tears.

Nanano's motive is proven to be her desire to become a strong and dependable person. While her intentions are noble, her clumsiness has a tendency to show itself during her efforts, to the point where she'll sleep in without meaning to and occasionally screwing up while cooking. Her cooking is unquestionably good, though, and she manages to keep the house clean all the time.

Personality-wise, Nanano is usually cheerful and bright. She's not the smartest person in the world, but can hold her own up to a certain point. People sometimes treat her like a child, which grates on her nerves almost as much as being called "Nonono". That being said, she is very gullible and extremely innocent. She also has a tendency to sulk if something doesn't go her way. Nanano is almost always in the company of her trusty sidekick, the turtle known as Kamejirou.

Description

Renge meets our protagonist during the prologue, after the truck she was riding on almost runs him over. Instead of offering an apology, all she does is smirk at him before the truck continues on its way.

In a few words, Renge is a girl with too much time on her hands. Shortly after settling down, she starts playing practical jokes on everyone that crosses her path out of sheer boredom. This does not spare even the store owners in the commercial district. Her quick wit and convincing air of innocence has managed to get her out of trouble, but her true nature quickly becomes apparent to several members of the main cast. Nanano is particularly aware of how cruel some of her pranks can be.

<hidden by spoiler settings>It is later revealed that the reason behind her boredom is that she has a frail constitution, which prevents her from going to school. Aside from her routine check-ups, there's nothing to occupy Renge's time. Kazuhiko's involvement in Renge's life begins to bring out urges to experience something beyond her usual routine. Her involvement with the other characters exponentially grows when she learns of the local legend of Hoshiuta, and becomes determined to discover the truth behind it when it is revealed that finding the Hoshiuta will grant that person one wish.

Personality-wise, Renge is usually serious and arrogant. Her trademark smirk is the clear giveaway that she's up to something. She loves being in an advantageous position, and won't hesitate to lie or trick people to get what she wants.
