The channel also features voice actor Larissa Tago Takeda as Mimi Gajatouge, an outspoken but socially clumsy high school student who forms a club out of her enthusiasm for modern art, and voice actor Hiro Shimono as Gakurai Boroboyama, a slightly mischievous high school student who is childhood friends with Mimi and who joins her club just to be near her rather than out of any particular interest in art.
