Character Relationships

Kaede and Himawari have a loving sisterhood. Himawari often cooks for her and makes her favorite meals. Himawari also tries to be strong for her little sister like eating bell peppers in front of her even though she doesn't like them herself. She sends Kaede on her first errand and watches her from afar with Sakurako to make sure she doesn't get approach by "suspicious people".

Sakurako Ōmuro

Kaede is praised by Sakurako because she is kind and sweet "unlike" her sister. Although Sakurako likes her, Kaede is constantly making somewhat innocent yet annoying references to Sakurako's small breasts, such as comparing them to Himawari's.

Mari Funami

Kaede and Mari became friends when they met in the park. When Mari doing her first errand, she runs into Kaede who is in fact doing her own first errand. They both help each other along the way, being able to stay strong when they see a scary dog and when Mari tripped, Kaede patched her up.

Hanako Ōmuro
