CastEdit

Main CastEdit

The construction company he was working in went bankrupt and he was appointed as the civilian principal of the Shingū Elementary School. Having devoted 20 years in the construction industry, he has no teaching license. He takes up the job in order to keep a promise he made with his former teacher and ex-principal Takeichi. Nonetheless, he has a cheerful personality and takes positive action at every turn, and he frequently describes himself as a "X X demon". He was greatly appalled by the appearance and the change in his alma mater, which was struggling to change the status quo. In the last episode, Shingū Elementary School narrowly avoided closing down, but at the same time, he resigned to take responsibility for the incident that was caused by Akira Hara in the school.

He is the class teacher and curriculum coordinator for the sixth graders in Shingū Elementary School. Born April 10, 1971, he graduated from the Tokyo Gakugei University. Being one of the super-primary school teachers from the District Board of Education, he has the confidence from other faculty members. The realist can compete with Naruse and they are at odds with each other. He observes the students better than any other teacher and actually knows about the situation. He was transferred to Shingū Elementary School because of the accusation that he used violence on a student eight years ago. He used to be as enthusiastic as Naruse, but changed as a result of that incident.

She is the school nurse and a Gundam otaku. She is indifferent to politics in school, and owns a number of Gundam models. She is very sensitive of her own age and was the first amongst the school staff to know about the Kirihara's incident eight years ago.
