- Akeno Himejima: Akeno's usual clients are either the bosses of huge corporations or rich wives, where she does a wide range of work that mostly consists of her taking away the stress of people living in the high society, from listening to their daily worries to drinking tea with them.
- Koneko Toujou: Koneko normally receives jobs ranging from being an opponent at playing cards to wearing a cosplay for a photo shoot.
