Kanan Chinami (千波 花音 Chinami Kanan) is a girl who has an Anime Voice who is very secretive when it comes to her voice and is ashamed of it. Junichirou Kagami gained an interest on this girl due to her Anime voice, as he is an otaku. She was once the school's idol, due to the rumours about her anime voice, but her position was stolen by Araki Koutarou once he enrolled in Ichou Academy. Many male students want to date her so that they have an excuse to hear her anime voice.
A beautiful Ichou Academy student who forces herself mute due to her dislike and ridicule of having a voice that sounds like an anime character. Initially, Kanan spoke only to herself through thought and to others through phone texting, but she starts to warm up to Junichirou when he becomes her home tutor for a physics test.
Kanan was about to back out of the test at the last second, but Junichirou convinces her otherwise; telling Kanan he’s only interested in the person the voice comes from as it’s a unique part of her that can’t be replicated. Kanan appreciates the sentiment, and finally speaks to Junichirou directly; whispering into his ear. Soon after, she joins the Broadcasting Club to be the hyperactive radio-announcer of Ichou; finally satisfied with her voice.
Afterwards, Kanan is seen mostly alongside her fellow classmate Shikishima as they follow along with Junichirou’s escapades, and has become a big sister of sorts to Koutarou after the former praised her for her cute craftsmanship in creating unique Uroboros items. Later on Kanan gained an interest in voice-acting thanks to a bit of encouragement from a famous voice actress, Kawashima Miyuki, and forms a rivalry with Kanou to become better voice actresses. She is then voted as one of the candidates to follow Junichirou to the main campus for the SS group war, but like Shikishima, she fails to get chosen due to her air-headedness.
However, thanks to Koyomi, she transfers to the main campus anyway as one of Junichiou’s five reserve students.
