Miyauchi Renge: First grader, the youngest of the five students at Asahigaoka Branch School. "If Koma-chan keeps lying to herself, she'll never really grow up." Koshigaya Natsumi: Seventh grader at Asahigaoka Branch School. The key to building a snowman is a strong foundation! She'll take on this task and give it her all this winter. Koshigaya Komari: Eighth grader at Asahigaoka Branch School. This year, she finally graduates from the carefree world of childhood. Kamakura snow forts, snowmen, snowball fights... goodbye to them all. Ichijo Hotaru: Fifth grade transfer student from Tokyo. She's never seen this kind of snow in the city, so it makes her very happy! It's so pretty and soft that she wants to stuff a bunch of it away and keep it forever!
