Description

Amamiya Yuuko, a mysterious girl dressed like a nun, and Himura Yuu, a mysterious gentleman who is somehow attached to the church where Yuuko first appears, are having a reunion in a church during Christmas time. Despite her attire, Yuuko is not affiliated with the church. She always appears generally out of no where, and disappears just as quickly in various places throughout the story to talk with Hiro or other characters and give them advice. Yuuko and Yuu reminisce about the past and remember events of the previous year around the same time at the beginning of the first chapter of the story. Yuuko hints of events that are revealed throughout Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two..

Description

”I was only remembering something from the past.”

A man often seen about the church. He could pass as a science teacher, but would be considered too frightening for the job.

His origins are unknown, but claims he has some sort of job to perform. Roaming Otowa’s streets, he suddenly presents himself to those who interest him, leaving deep guidance and counsel in a crusty manner.

Description

”You’ll never know if you don’t try.”

Hiro is a full-time student, but moonlights as Shindou Nagi, a professional shoujo manga artist. He is the youngest sibling in a family where his father and sister are both renowned traditional artists. At his core he’s diligent and softhearted, but his outer personality shows otherwise. He communicates bluntly and has difficulty speaking his mind.

He can also be indecisive. He is influenced by his sister, the Shindou twins (particularly the older one), and countless others, and has poor luck with women in general.

Description

”Well, I’m in cahoots with Himura.”

A spirited professional violinist and former student of Otowa Collegiate, though he left halfway through to study in Germany. Displays animated optimism, but is actually a realist on the inside. His selfless acts are to hide all traces of his true intentions in order to focus on what lies ahead.

He’s like an older brother to his next-door neighbor Renji. Also a bit of a flirt towards Renji’s mother, Sumire Asou.

Description

”Nothing in it for me for helping a guy. Now if you were a girl...”

A cameraman in the film club. Aloof, and perhaps nimble in nature. Particularly so when it comes to women. He has a keen sense of observation, possibly stemming from his diplomatic role with the club. He is devoted and meticulous regarding his surroundings, and has been involved in many relationships. However, he is selfish when it comes to filming, and at times can be stubborn, turning the sorrow of others into material.

At present, he has a keen interest in the love triangle involving his close friend Hirono Hiro.

Description

”Yes! Your dear Mizuki has arrived!”

An energetic girl belonging to the basketball team of Otowa Collegiate’s feeder school. Formerly Shindou Kei's junior, she is still quite a devoted fan. Mizuki has quite a few connections at Otowa Collegiate due to her relationship with Kei.

Frank and spirited. Direct and rash. Charmed by too many things, and not wary of nearly enough, she’s a bit like a puppy. Admires her ”Kei-senpai” and aspires to be a ”cool woman”, though it’s obvious from her upbringing that it’s impossible. Loves shoujo manga.

Description

”Wha-a-at? Being a copycat is so boring!”

Boasting excellence in all facets, she is attractive, has top grades, and is quite athletic. She is, however, known to those around her for being whimsical and selfish.

She hates being tied down, so skipping class and going home early is simply routine for her. Although most matters are uninteresting to her, she’ll relentlessly seize anything that takes her fancy.

She’s a troublemaker and sets her own terms.

Description

”Today, let me tell you a story about a rabbit.”

The younger of the identical twins. Very literary. She’s naturally quiet, the polar opposite of her sister Kei. Though she appears calm and collected, she seems childish when spoken to, and is a bit of an airhead. Due to a childhood accident, she lost her left eye and bears a unique handicap.

She does not currently attend school, and would appear to be under recuperation. Has the habits of glancing up at people and of tilting her head.

Description

Onii-chan? I won’t get mad, so tell me.”

The elder of a set of identical twins. Very athletic. A first-year student, Kei is already a starter for the basketball team. She’s determined to win, knows no fear, and is a sadist. Due to the influence of Hirono Hiro, her ”Onii-chan” and friend since they were little, she’s developed a sharp tongue and talks like a man when she gets worked up.

Proud and somewhat reckless, she gets embarrassed whenever she messes up. She is also not adept in romantic affairs, and has a tendency to believe in fortunes.
