Unlike other anime in the fall season, Bocchi the Rock! has fewer characters given that it is a slice-of-life anime. The upside is that each character is given more opportunities for character development. In this regard, we’ve taken a closer look at Bocchi the Rock!’s main characters, including their age and birthday!

Bocchi the Rock! stars four cute girls, namely Hitori, Nijika, Ryo, and Kita, in a band called Kessoku Band.

Unlike her bandmates, Hitori is a shy, awkward, and anti-social girl who can only rely on her guitar skills to entice others to approach her.

Despite her efforts, no one in her class approached her after one month of attending school as a freshman.
