Name: Sawada, Yumi (沢田ゆみ)
Alias:
N/A
Relationship Status:
Single
Origin:
Fujoshissu!

Information:
Sawada Yumi joined the Ryouhoku High School manga club when her friend Komura Mai brought her along. Unlike Mai, Yumi is shy and more quiet. She also likes to dress up in gothic-lolita fashion even on hot days, but ducks into buildings frequently to keep cool. She will sometimes even go so far as to wear a goth-loli outfit to Comic Market.

Fujoshi Level:
Though not terribly vocal about her fujoshi thoughts (let alone anything else), she still exhibits a mind for BL, easily gelling with the existing fujoshi of the manga club, particularly when it comes to pairing the two new male members, Yonekawa Akito and Nakamura Shingo.

Name: Komura, Mai (小村舞)
Alias:
N/A
Relationship Status:
Single
Origin:
Fujoshissu!

Information:
Komura Mai is a member of Ryouhoku High School’s manga club, which she decided to join after attending the school festival while still in junior high. As the main catalyst behind her decision to join the club was the manga artwork of member/president Satou Megumi, Mai holds her in high regard. Cheerful yet restrained, Mai is also friends with Sawada Yumi, whom she brought to the manga club as well.

Fujoshi Level:
Mai’s immediate fondness of Megumi’s work indicates that she is fairly deep. In addition, she is able to act on the same wavelength as the existing members of the manga club, like with the pairing of male members Yonekawa Akito and Nakamura Shingo and their friendship built on contrasting personalities.

Name: Isihioka, Yuri (石岡ゆり)
Alias:
N/A
Relationship Status:
Dating
Origin:
Fujoshissu!

Information:
Ishioka Yuri is a college-aged woman who moved to the prefecture of Yamagata in the Tohoku region of Japan when she was little. While growing up, she spent years exchanging letters with her friend and long-time crush Roppongi Takefumi. A shy and clumsy girl since childhood, Yuri was able to begin a relationship with Takefumi upon moving back to her old hometown.

In Yamagata, Yuri was able to make a few friends, notably her neighbor Kana and eventually in high school her classmate Mihara Touko. As a fujoshi, Touko began introducing Yuri to various classic BL stories, which Yuri enjoyed without quite knowing what they were. Yuri is also a skilled pianist, having performed in recitals as a child.

Fujoshi Level:
It is unclear as to whether or not Yuri is fully a fujoshi, but the fact that she displays a Dear Girl ~Stories~ Hibiki cell phone strap is possible evidence as such. In addition, her friend Touko seemed intent to slowly mold Yuri into a fujoshi during their high school years, and the fact that Yuri was so moved by those BL stories indicates that the potential is definitely there.

Name: Himenogi, Rin (姫乃木凜)
Alias: Rinrin (リンリン ), Hime Ringo (姫リンゴ)
Relationship Status: Single
Origin: Princess Ringo’s Adventures in “Wota” Land

Information:
Himenogi Rin is a fashionable office lady who seeks the reputation of “Princess of OLs” among her co-workers, though unbeknownst to them she is also a hardcore fujoshi. This changes when one of her new co-workers turns out to be Yamada Moe, an old acquaintance and fellow fujoshi who tries to push Rin to be more open about it. Secretly a virgin, Rin tries to get with one of her fellow coworkers, but when he turns out to be a manipulative womanizer she cooperates with Moe and a victim named Chitose Sakurako to get revenge.

Rin’s favorite series is Prince Salaryman, and her favorite character is “Red.” Although once ridiculed out of cosplaying due to being overweight in her younger years, Rin returns to it with Moe’s encouragement where her current beauty garners her new popularity, including (to her horror) with one of her coworkers who isn’t aware of “Hime Ringo’s” true identity.

Fujoshi Level:
All of Rin’s prospective first times were halted by her yaoi fantasies when each man involved got too scared. In another instance, Rin, cosplaying as Red, was so into her BL persona at a doujin event that she french kissed Sakurako cosplaying the same character in front of an audience.

Name: Yano (矢野)
Alias:
N/A
Relationship Status:
Dating/Complicated
Origin:
Bust to Bust: Chotto Kurai Kusatteru no ga Oishiin Desuyo?

Information:
Yano is a student who, after being absent from school, enters a sexual (and eventually romantic) relationship with a boy named Igawa who delivered her homework. Because Igawa’s childhood friend Shinobu and a teacher from America also vie for Igawa’s affections, Yano first competes with them but ends up agreeing to share him instead. Yano’s favorite series include Taiga and Tiger Sheet.

Fujoshi Level:
The reason Yano was absent in the first place was due to an uncontrollable BL-drawing frenzy.

Name: Rittoku, Kanae (六徳カナエ)
Alias:
Kana (カナ), Ankoku Miko (暗黒皇子), Anko Kumiko (あんこくみこ)
Relationship Status:
Complicated
Origin: Fudanshism: Fudanshi Shugi na Seikatsu

Information:
Rittoku Kanae is a teenager attending Kentei Academy with a love for cosplaying as men, gothic lolita fashion, and visual kei. Believing that her developing figure prevents her from being the ideal image of a girl (something she derives from visual kei), Kanae tends to minimize the appearance of her very large breasts through the use of wraps and loose clothing. It is Kanae’s experience in this regard that allows her to immediately notice that the gothic lolita fujoshi “Amane” is actually a boy. Despite the fact that she harbors feelings for not only Amane but Amane’s true self (fellow classmate Miyano Amata), she does not realize the two are the same for a very long time.

Kanae’s hobby is to compose dark poetry on her website under the pen name Ankoku Miko, “priestess of darkness.” Her favorite band is Beni Kagerou, a two-man band featuring male crossplayers. She is also a fan of the anime Omakase Tentel, though not to the extent of her friends and acquaintances.

Fujoshi Level:
Rittoku is not an extreme fujoshi, as her other hobbies seem to hold higher priority in her life. On Miyano Tamae’s fujoshi rating system, she is a “Visual Kei (Bangya) Fujoshi” with a Delusion Power level of 2500 and an Economic Power of 200.

Name: Morikawa, Rion (森川璃音)
Alias: 
Sohora (そほら), Gojappe (ゴジャッペ)
Relationship Status:
Single
Origin: Fudanshism: Fudanshi Shugi na Seikatsu

Information:
Morikawa Rion is a school nurse at Kentei Academy who, unbeknownst to her fellow stadd and even the otaku in the student body, is a famed BL doujinshi author. Better known as “Sohora” to all of her fans, she is the founder of the popular Ten x Miko circle Gojappe, and is a regular attendee of Comic Manga Market. It is with her direct help that Miyano Amata, brother of fellow Gojappe member Miyano Tamae, initially transforms into the gothic lolita “girl” Amane in order to work the desk at Comic Manga Market.

Whether as a nurse or as a doujin artist, Sohora is adept at caring for others and listening to their problems. She is a fan of the magical girl series Omakase Tentel, and also has a thing for seemingly opposite genres, the Salaryman and the shota. In her mid-20s, she is also the oldest fujoshi in and around Kentei Academy.

Fujoshi Level:
When Morikawa once found herself with a seemingly insurmountable writer’s block, she was able to use a simple experience talking to a couple of the students at Kentei Academy to overcome it. Tamae’s ranking system has her as a “Closet Fujoshi,” whose Delusion Power is at a somewhat low 700, but is bolstered by an extremely high Economic Power of 5000.

Name: Miyano, Tamae (宮野環依)
Alias:
Tamatan (たまたん), Tama-nee (タマ姐), Gojappe (ゴジャッペ)
Relationship Status:
Single
Origin:
Fudanshism: Fudanshi Shugi na Seikatsu

Information:
Miyano Tamae is a woman who, despite her youthful appearance, is actually a college student. When she falls sick and becomes unable to attend Comic Manga Market, her little brother Amata ends up being her replacement, which is also the origins of his crossdressing adventures as “Amane.” Initiating Amata into the world of the fujoshi, she also acts as a mentor for all things otaku-related.

Along with Morikawa Rion and Kawashima Moko, Tamae (under the name “Tamatan”) is a member of the popular doujin circle Gojappe, which specializes in the pairing of mascots Tentel and Mikoto (in that order) from the magical girl series Omakase Tentel. Gojappe is a popular circle, and even Tamae herself was originally a fan of the group before joining. Tamae is into guys with glasses, has a tendency to end her sentences with the syllable “yo,” and is so extremely knowledgeable about anime and manga as well as the culture surrounding it to the extent that she is able to explain even the subtlest distinctions to absolute beginners.

Fujoshi Level:
Tamae’s wealth of information on anime and manga naturally extends to yaoi and BL, acting as an encouraging older sister (both literal and figurative) for those less experienced in those matters. She also created her own comprehensive fujoshi rating system, where she categorizes herself as a “Music Game Fujoshi,” with a Delusion Power rating of 1000 and and an Economic Power rating of 800.

Name: Konishi, Nozomi (小西望)
Alias:
Nozomin (のぞみん)
Relationship Status:
Dating
Origin:
Fudanshism: Fudanshi Shugi na Seikatsu

Information:
Konishi Nozomi is a teenager who attends Kentei Academy and acts as the vice-president of the school’s manga club. A sincere girl who is quiet (but not necessarily shy), one year at Comic Manga Market she meets a gothic lolita girl named Amane. Over time, the two grow closer, though unbeknownst to Nozomi, Amane is actually her male classmate, Miyano Amata, the most popular boy in school. However, when Amata’s secret eventually comes out, Nozomi shows that she had already realized the truth at some point, and the two begin a relationship of sorts.

A versatile otaku, Nozomi is skilled in both drawing and cosplay, and is particularly a fan of the magical girl anime Omakase Tentel and the BL pairing of Tentel x Mikoto, the main character Yanami’s mascot companions. She also is the premiere shipper of manga club member Kiyokawa Atsumu with his best friend and manga club president Matsumoto Senri. Her favorite doujin circle is “Gojappe,” she prefers to cosplay as Yanami, and though she is strongly in favor of Ten x Miko, she also gets along with the Miko x Ten contingent of her club.

Fujoshi Level:
Nozomi can be absolutely overwhelmed by her intense fujoshi feelings. So powerful is this potential reaction that, once, after seeing a particularly erotic Ten x Miko drawing, Nozomi had to go to the nurse’s office at school the next day to see if something was wrong with her. In addition, according to Miyano Tamae’s rankings, she is a “Dreamy Maiden Fujoshi” with a Delusion Power level of 5000 and an Economic Power level of 800.

Name: Masana (雅奈)
Alias: Masa-nee (雅姐)
Relationship Status: Dating
Origin: Fujoshi Kanojo.

Information:
Office lady, writes BL novels. Has obscure tastes and doesn’t like when things go mainstream. She particularly has a thing for yaoi stories about businessmen. Has an eye doctor boyfriend who is really into audio equipment, and is not very understanding of her fujoshi hobbies, creating a good deal of tension in their relationship. Good friends with Yuiko and Sacchin.

An older office lady, Masana (“Masa-nee” to her friends Yuiko and Sachi) is an author of BL novels. Interested especially in stories concerning businessmen, she has obscure tastes and does not enjoy genres as much when they become too mainstream. Masana dates an eye doctor who is not very understanding of her fujoshi hobbies, which creates a good deal of tension in their relationship, especially because he seems unable to see that his obsession with audio equipment is just as strong as Masana’s passion for yaoi.

Fujoshi Level:
In a fit of anger, Masana once wrote fanfiction of her boyfriend being the uke to the wires and cables of his own audio equipment.
