Asahikawa, Hokkaido. This is the city where Sakurako lives. Sakurako is the beautiful young lady of a prestigious family, but loves bones more than anything else. By being together with her, it seems I get connected to bones for some reason as well. I'm always tossed around between incidents concerning bones and Sakurako, but the reason I don't hate it must be because of you, Sakurako.


Sakurako Kujo
VA:Shizuka Itō

A young lady in a well-to-do household. Lives alone with her nanny in a retro-western style mansion. Enchanted by bones from an early age, she becomes a specialist for creating skeletal specimens. Has a vast array of knowledge, including knowledge of bones and forensic science.

Shotaro Tatewaki
VA:Junya Enoki

1st year in high school. Because of a certain incident, he starts to act together with Sakurako. An honest, straightforward personality. Has a weakness against tasty food, what you can call a "glutton".

Yuriko Kougami
VA:Ayaka Imamura

Classmate of Shotaro. Has a bright personality, but also harbors a trauma of losing her grandmother.

Itsuki Isozaki
VA:Akira Ishida

The teacher in charge of Shotaro's class. A handsome biology teacher, but has a disappointing personality.

The police officer in charge of the police box. A very outgoing and friendly person. Sometimes unreliable, but has a strong sense of justice.

Haruto Imai
VA:Tetsuya Kakihara

Shotaro's classmate. On the tennis team. Romantically interested in Yuriko.

VA:Masako Isobe

Her real name is Ume Sawa. Serves the Kujo family from long ago, and has raised Sakurako as her nanny. A good cook, and excels at listening to people's stories.
