Riko Sakurauchi (桜内 梨子 Sakurauchi Riko?)
Voiced by: Rikako Aida
Riko is a modest, down-to-earth second-year from Akihabara who transferred from Otonokizaka Academy. She believes herself to have no special talent and thus has no interest in becoming a school idol, but is dragged into it by Chika.

The prideful, third-year student council president of Uranohoshi Girls' Academy. She and her younger sister Ruby are part of a well-known and respected family.

Voiced by: Aika Kobayashi
Yoshiko is first-year student with "chūnibyō" (中二病?, "delusions of grandeur"). She refers to herself as "Yohane", and describes herself as a fallen angel who has angered God, as she is always been extremely unlucky.
Hanamaru Kunikida (国木田 花丸 Kunikida Hanamaru?)
Voiced by: Kanako Takatsuki
Hanamaru is an easily-distracted first-year student whose family runs a local temple. She refers to herself in third-person as "Ola", a nickname she received from her best friend Ruby, and ends all of her sentences with "-zura". She is also a member of a local choir due to her talent at singing.
Mari Ohara (小原 鞠莉 Ohara Mari?)
Voiced by: Aina Suzuki
A third-year student at Uranohoshi. She is of mixed descent, her mother being Japanese while her American father runs a hotel chain in Italy. Mari is a bright person who prefers to take action by herself, and does not feel herself to be suited to become a school idol. Mari composes the music for Aqours, and her favorite music genre is industrial metal.
Ruby Kurosawa (黒澤 ルビィ Kurosawa Rubii?)
Voiced by: Ai Furihata
Dia's timid and crybaby little sister, Ruby has long since dreamed of becoming an idol. She has androphobia (fear of men), as she has never talked to anyone male outside of her own father. She sometimes refers to herself in third-person like her best friend, Hanamaru.
