Nagisa Hihara

Voice : Karin Isobe

VOICE

Shooting Weapon : Assault Rifle
Close-Range Weapon : Combat Knife

A peppy new maid who just started working at a maid café in Akiba and makes her customers feel comforted with her warm smile.

Like many, she was a victim of the sudden pandemic that spread through Akiba, leading her to escape with Rinka, which unfortunately ended in them both getting infected. However, due to the anti-body slowing down the virus, she was able to be rescued by Kanon in the nick of time.

She makes her resolve to save Rinka and fighting the zombies by arming herself with a firearm.

Her physical prowess, vision, immunity and stamina have improved to super-human levels from the anti-bodies and virus affecting her body.

Rinka Kazane

Voice : Lynn

VOICE

Shooting Weapon : Sniper Rifle
Close-Range Weapon : Katana

A maid who works at the same café as Nagisa. The people around her view her as a calm individual, but deep down she's just an introvert who isn't good at socializing. Though she is the same age as Nagisa, she has more experience working at maid cafés and would teach her often. She admires Nagisa for being able to talk to anyone without giving it a second thought, unlike herself.

Her hobby is playing FPS video games. So much so that she became the second best in the world, where she is infamous in that specific field.

Voice : Yuuki Takada

VOICE

Shooting Weapon : Shotgun
Close-Range Weapon : Chainsaw

A member of the underground idol group "Maidol 5". She was the only one in the group who had the special anti-bodies while the rest of Maidol 5's members were zombified, forcing her into hiding until help arrived.

Whether it's getting attacked by a zombie, or being put in a life-or-death situation, she will always be serious about her role play. Nagisa truly respects her dedication to her craft.

VOICE

Shooting Weapon : Sub-Machine Gun
Close-Range Weapon : Kunai

An exchange student who loves Japanese culture. She started working at a Ninja themed maid café because of her obsession with ninjas. She's the underclassman of Rinka at college, who first met her by chance at a Kendo tournament, where she was moved by Rinka's swordsmanship and started calling her "Senpai".

Uses incorrect Japanese on the regular. Perhaps it was because she learned her Japanese from watching anime, but she and Arisa have a synergy whenever they are together, where they geek out over pop culture.
