Satsuki is an unconfident, shy third-year high schooler afraid to fall in love (and of men to a small extent). Satsuki's negative attitude to romance was born from an event 5 years ago, during junior high school. She decided to pluck up her courage and confess her feelings to her first love and childhood friend, Kanade. However, she overhears Kanade saying to his classmate that he has no interest whatsoever in "a girl like her". To make matters worse, just before he was bound for Austria, Kanade told her that she was ugly and that she should keep her glasses on to hide her hideous face.

The president of the Theatre Club, although he passes on most of the administrative duties to Touwa. From a wealthy family, Seiichirou is somewhat spoiled, though not unpleasantly arrogant.

Haru is a long-time member of the Theatre Club, and also Satsuki's classmate. Meek, quiet and very shy, Haru is a pacifist and tries to avoid directly stating his point of view- especially when Touwa and Sei'ichirou argue (though he finds himself getting involved anyway). He is the gentlest and kindest towards Satsuki and never orders her around. Haru enjoys creative writing, and does so at any spare moment he gets. Though from a vastly wealthy family, Haru has almost no interest in money or material possessions.

The blunt and stand-offish childhood friend of Satsuki. The root of her aversion to romance, Kanade frequently called her ugly, and is the reason why she rarely removes her glasses. A gifted pianist, Kanade trained in Europe to further his skills. Out of the blue, he returns to Japan to perform in a concert, and seems to have changed very little, personality-wise.

A member of the Theatre Club, Yuki is energetic, friendly and positive, in direct contrast to most of its members. He openly shows his affection for Satsuki, though never laciviously. In spite of his child-like cheer, Yuki is surprisingly perceptive of everything that goes on around him. Since he works part time in the props department at the Stella Theatre during the day, he attends and studies at school in the evening. As a result, he can't attend the club as often as he'd like. He is self-conscious of his short height, and is quick to redeem himself as the physically strongest of the club.
