- Voiced by: Asuka Nishi
- A graceious and friendly 16-year old girl, who is nicknamed Shino by her friends. She previously stayed over at Alice's home in England, and although she herself is rather bad at English and has generally poor grades, she wishes to become an interpreter. She has somewhat of an obsession with blonde hair, especially that of Alice and Karen. She also has a talent in sewing.
- Alice Cartelet (アリス・カータレット Arisu Kātaretto )

- Yōko Inokuma (猪熊 陽子 Inokuma Yōko )
- Voiced by: Yumi Uchiyama
- Shinobu's classmate and life-long friend. She is perky and optimistic, however also tends to be somewhat clumsy. She is also somewhat of a tomboy, and while it is unclear whether she recognises Aya's feelings for her, she enjoys teasing Aya, but also cares deeply about her, and can tell when something is bothering her.
- Karen Kujō (九条 カレン Kujō Karen )
- Voiced by: Nao Tōyama
- A half-British, half-Japanese girl who was Alice's friend back in England. She also comes to Japan with her family and enrolls in Shinobu's school. She is energetic and friendly, but can be a tad naive, particularly regarding her family's wealth. She often speaks in broken Japanese.
- Honoka Matsubara (松原 穂乃花 Matsubara Honoka )
- Voiced by: Ayaka Suwa
- Karen's classmate, who, after finally working up the courage to ask for her e-mail address begins to become closer friends with her and the others. Like Shinobu, she has an affinity for blonde hair, which leads to them forming an informal blonde hair fanclub together.
