In a recent update, the Ebiten Otaku anime showed information about the main characters and the production staff. As I have previously noted, this lovely moe-style anime will be something really common, but also will be a cute way to fill-up your moe-style list of watched anime.
Ebiten revolves around a certain Japanese high school and what is happening within the different clubs in it. This specific tale is of the young student named Noya Itsuki who instead of joining the “Astronomy Club” ends up being in the “Otaku Girls’ Club”. The transcribed names seem odd, but in Japanese, out of the three kanji that make up each name, only one is different and they both are read in the same way!

The odd one out of the lot – she foresees through Tarot cards, she detests kawaii things.
The vice-president who is always up for a fight is it’s for the protection of her ideals.
The Student Council president who is said to have been a Tenmon-bu club, but is now considering it an enemy and will do everything to take it down.
