Some of the characters in the series include:



Yuuta Segawa (瀬川 祐太?, Segawa Yūta )[1]
Voiced by: Wataru Hatano (Japanese)
The main character, a college freshman just starting a new life in the School of Literature at Tama University. His parents passed away when he was young. As such, he was raised by his sister, Yuri. He was angry with his sister's decision to marry a man who has two daughters from previous marriages. When Yuri and her husband go missing, their three daughters had no one to turn to. Yuuta makes a decision to take them in and becomes their guardian. He is surprisingly reliable. Even the youngest daughter of the three, Hina, quickly got close to him. He has feelings for Raika but couldn't find any chance to express his feelings to her, in the last episode of the anime adaption he proposes to her (which she accepts) just to symbolically act as Hina's mother for one day (while he act as "father") at Hina's nursery parents day.


Sora Takanashi (小鳥遊 空?, Takanashi Sora )
Voiced by: Sumire Uesaka (Japanese)
The eldest of the three sisters. She is 14 years old, second-year student in middle school, and has a tsundere personality. She normally refers to Yuuta as "older brother (Onii-chan)" and holds a longtime crush on him but he is (perhaps purposely) oblivious to her feelings and thought she is just a shy and short tempered girl. She also gets easily jealous when he is with Raika. She has fairly good grades in school but is not adept at cooking. She is jealous of Raika's body like a fashion model, her huge bust and also her close bond with Yuuta. Her style is highly reminiscent of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese)
The second eldest of the three sisters; she is 10 years old, fifth grader. She has blonde hair as her biological mother has a Russian lineage. She normally refers to Yuuta as "uncle (Oji-san)". She has a preference for guys who are older than her and manly. It is implied that she may have a slight crush on Yuuta, as she is particularly curious about his romance life. She started develop feelings for Yuuta at the end of volume 4 of the light novel. Her biological Russian mother also makes an appearance in volume 4, but Miu decided to stay with Yuuta instead.


Hina Takanashi (小鳥遊 ひな?, Takanashi Hina )
Voiced by: Hiromi Igarashi (Japanese)
The youngest of the three sisters, Hina Takanashi is 3 years old and attends day care. She is the biological daughter of Yuri and thus the only one of the three girls who is directly related by blood to Yuuta. She is very friendly and unafraid of strangers. She sometimes mispronounces words, often leaving out certain consonants. She normally addresses Yuuta as "uncle (Oji-san)", but has trouble with the "j" and "s" sound so it comes out as "Oi-tan" (little uncle). She is a fan of the heroine anime, Luna Luna Seven.
