Girlfriend (彼女 Kanojo?)
Voiced by: Shizuka Itō
A high school girl who dwarfs her boyfriend in terms of height. She comes to his apartment after school when she's not busy with club activities. She is also fairly aggressive when it comes to her boyfriend and usually kicks at him whenever she's in a bad mood or wronged, but is exceptionally meek when it comes to actual romancing like hugging and kissing. She is also the postergirl for the series. She enjoys fighting games the most.
