Saki Hoshino (VA: Azusa Tadokoro)

Akiba's Beat - Character - Saki Hoshino

Yamato Hongo (VA: Nobuhiko Okamoto)

Akiba's Beat - Character - Yamato Hongo

16 years old. A high school boy who looks like a middle school student. He’s a teen who puts on a cool air and says he doesn’t have any interest in Akihabara culture. However, he sees Akihabara eroded by delusion before his own eyes.


Kotomi Sanada (VA: Sumire Uesaka)

A 28 year-old man searching for someone in Akihabara. He joins Asahi and company after a certain opportunity, but has a cold attitude.

Mizuki Aihara (VA: Kensho Ono)

A 20 year-old college student and Asahi’s childhood friend. Compared to the free-spirited Asahi, Mizuki is the more serious and reliable type.

Kanon (VA: Tetsuya Kakihara)

The rumored pink-caped man that appeared in Akihabara. He contracts the peoples’ delusions and is thus called the “Delusion Contractor,” but his true identity and intentions are unknown.

Moe Suzumori (VA: Yuuki Kuwahara)

Yukino Saionji (VA: Hibiku Yamamura)

A 28 year-old maid who works for Kotomi. She spoils and is always doting on Kotomi.

Katana Saotome (VA: Juri Kimura)

A 16 year-old Bokukko maid who works at a bar in the Akihabara side-streets. She has good style and is popular with customers, but her constant lack of confidence tends to make her nervous.

Akemi Extasia (VA: Tsubasa Yonaga)

A mysterious woman who runs the bar where Katana works. It’s also an information shop. She takes an interest in Asahi and company and establishes a friendly relationship with them.

Akiba’s Beat will be released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this fall for Japan, and for North America this winter.
