Game Original Characters

New Staff

A new staff member working at CiRCLE. This is the in-game player whose name is changeable.

In order to gather participants of the live event planned by the owner of CiRCLE, the "new staff" will scout the girl bands according to Marina's instructions.

After the opening story, there is almost no direct involvement in the game, except in the special episodes of each member's card stories, where they appear alone or together with Marina to talk with the member. This is because the relationship between the characters is drawn in a realistic manner, and the existence of the player character is not considered as important.[1]
