Kubo Masaru was knocked out into a critical state of unconsciousness by the prequel's protagonist, Yukimura Yukinojou, during a boxing practice.
He recovered from the coma now, and at present is attending Ryouzuki School.
However, due to his insufficient attendance, he has to repeat a year, additionally got barred from the possibility of practicing box, and is moved from the specially selected sports class to a general education class where he, alongside with his classmate Mizushina Akira, is fighting against heavy odds at the studies designed as preparations of entering university.
After regaining his consciousness and recovering from the feeling that "he has somehow slipped into the future" due to the time he lost in coma, the doctors also forbid him to practice his biggest passion - boxing -, thus now Masaru is frustrated of being unable to continue and is completely burning out inside.
Just what sort of destiny such a Masaru could end up with?

The protagonist and the title giver of the sequel game, Masaru.
His boxing skills are probably at the same level as Yukinojou's, but due to his accident, it'd be quite difficult for him to continue. He was the one who introduced boxing to Yukinojou and they even learned boxing in a way they could somehow surpass the other. They are best friends of each other and eternal rivals at boxing at the same time.
He's basically a huge and lovable idiot, but when it comes to making decisions, he's definitely a guy who'll make firm choices and stick to them. He's not a morning person though and most of the time if his sister, Shouko, or their mom wouldn't wake him up (with various -often violent- methods they devise) then he'd sleep 'till well into the afternoon.
Dislikes studying, and loves playing games (including those in the game centers), movies, model toys; one could very well say he's really really similar to Serina, which also explains why <hidden by spoiler settings>.
His wit and personality, alongside his pompous narcissistic behavior and his interesting narration makes him an awesome galge protagonist.

Masaru's little sister and Yukinojou's childhood friend. She was the former manager of the boxing club when those two were still active members, even though she did not really enjoy boxing. The thought of her beloved brother and childhood friend "beating" each other always filled her with uneasiness.
Following the accident sending Masaru into coma, she harshly condemned Yukinojou, whom unable to bear this and the resulting situation moved to Kashima city. Short while later Shouko followed her, as she didn't intend to let him off the hook so easily.
After becoming heartbroken due to Yukinojou during the first game's course, and following Masaru's awakening, she came back to Ryouzuki and behaved a lot more cheerfully, as if she were a different person.
Nowadays, it seems she has completely gained back her normal cheerfulness and kindness. She's also a reliable girl who takes care of her incompetent older brother while also zealously studying.
According to Masaru, "she has an attractive face and figure, is keen-headed, has a gentle personality, cooks great food and an unrivaled little sister who loves cleaning."
Object of admiration for many in Ryuzuki Academy, and among other people Gonzou too has fallen for her at first sight.

She is Masaru's classmate and, arguably, his "main heroine".
Her eyes are always droopy and she's a problem child who often has to take supplementary lessons along with Masaru.
She spaces out all the time, and drives Masaru up on the wall by always playing dumb. In short she's a girl who's tough to handle.
She often gives off the impression of being indifferent, but on a whim, she occasionally shows that she's got sharp intuition.
Akira is somehow aloof from the world, which creates discrepancy between her and her surroundings, causing her to be left out from class. Aside from Ousei Yumiko, her childhood friend, she doesn't mingle with others.
She usually kills time by strolling around town until very late.
Even though her and Masaru's personalities are poles apart, she claims that they are holding an inseparable relationship with each other (so called "supplementary class comrades"), and he has often been caught by Akira during her strolls, whereas she also weasels her way to get treated for food by him.

Masaru was a freshman while she was a senior when she became his girlfriend. Before her graduation three years ago she suddenly broke up with him though, ending their relationship.

Cheerful, vigorous, naive, a girl really knowledgeable about lots of trivia but at the same time failing at her own studies. Commander of the Kasuga Independent Gang.
Hates things being obscured, and often does her utmost to unravel things forcefully, a really open character. An avid gamer of the game center in town along with her two childhood friends, Teppei and Tatsuya. She's a heroine + comedian + indispensable support character who rampages in this confined game world and she could actually be the real protagonist too(!?). So move, move!

A first year student in Kashima Academy and is Serina's kouhai.
Exaggeratedly cheerful, but at the same time can turn into a crybaby for the smallest reasons. In addition, once she's set her mind in something, she goes straight to it as if she were high on drugs. She accidentally became acquainted to Serina and her childish behavior always rubs Serina the wrong way, an action which shows how fearless she is. She has an intense tendency of changing her emotions. There's even a possibility that her intense personality overshadows that of Serina's.

A zealous female educator who took the job of being the homeroom teacher of the problem child, Serina. Unbound by the sense of duty and responsibility, she's definitely a natural and ideal female teacher. She's also smart and has strong maternal instinct. She gently watches over her problematic pupils, while also occasionally helping them, without a doubt a a perfect model for a teacher. The story would have definitely failed without her involvement.

Washibuchi Eagle Gonzou is a third year student in the general education curriculum of Ryouzuki Academy.
He transferred to Masaru's class during the beginning of the game, and he's a huge guy with a funny countryside accent.
His somewhat anarchistic appearance -a diagonally worn school cap with a crack in front, wooden clogs and unshaven face- always makes Masaru laugh, albeit inappropriately.
According to him, "he came to Tokyo for the sake of becoming a better, manlier man".
After having seen how Masaru's classmates revere him by attaching "-san" to his name among other things, Gonzou got under the impression that he was the school's gang leader, and thus -as a "Crime Avenger" he really strives to be- he challenged Masaru for a duel.
But before they duelled, he fell in love at first sight with Masaru's little sister, Shouko. From then on, he too starts worshipping Masaru, and addresses him as "Onii-sama". He also starts hanging out with them from then.
He easily falls in love and once he sets his heart on something, he goes recklessly to it at full speed.
Contrary to his scary face, he is quite clever, naive and has a strong sense of justice.
Gonzou's father is a wealthy politician in Tokyo, and is a big-shot member of the National Diet who is being rumored to become the next prime minister. Gonzou's ambition is to succeed after his dad.
