Haru Kose (CV: Alexis Jassmin Broadhead)

The 223rd High Priestess of the Grand Holy Shrine: Daijingu. She is a Shinto high priestess and becomes the Player’s partner.

She was captured by Masatake Arakida, who stole parts of her body as well as her sacred weapon, the Astral Hunting Bow.

After having her powers sealed away, she makes a desperate attempt to summon help, and accidentally summons the Player from a parallel world.

Because she is chained to the quelling stone and cannot move freely, she needs the Player to move the quelling stone for her.


A VR game player.

Just as they were trying to play a new VR game, Haru summons them to the world of The Tale of Onogoro via their VR headset.

Her summoning was incomplete, giving the player a ghost-like appearance.

The Player cannot interact with this new world, but for some reason, they are able to wield divine ancient relics called the Celestial Weapons.

Masatake Arakida (CV: Ray Chase)

A powerful Shinto priest and Elder of the Grand Holy Shrine: Daijingu, and Haru’s childhood friend.

He took Haru’s weapon and parts of her body, then sealed her away.

He was seen as a candidate to become the next head of the Grand Holy Shrine due to his talents.

One day, he disappeared, taking two sacred relics, the Mafutsu Mirror and the holy sword Soul Slayer, with him.

He later manifested the five Kami causing mayhem on Onogoro Island. His motives are unknown.
