Bell RenjōjiBell Renjōji is the top student of Edel Rose. She is a very talented individual who can fluently speak five languages and is a national-level champion winner at the violin. Bell is always pampered by Otoha Takanashi who constantly apologizes to her if she doesn't do things right.
Bell enrolled in Edel Rose at the order of her mother and was joined by Wakana Morizono; she also meets with Otoha who had forgotten her shoes. After the audition, the three meet at Edel Rose's ice-skating rink where Otoha returns the shoes Bell had lent her. Bell insisted that Otoha keeps it and lends a matching pair to Wakana and herself, forming herself a circle of friends. At some point, her small group had slowly drifted apart in order to achieve significance alone. After learning she cannot perform Prism Live, she gives up on Prism Shows believing she had no right to stand at the top. Otoha and Wakana manages to bring across their feelings of love for who she is and the three form a unit called Bell Rose. After learning that she had been loved all along, she discovers love is all she needed to perform Prism Live.

Otoha is known to be a completely different person when it comes to Prism Shows as it is never like her usual hesitant self.
She loves fantasy and fairytales, thus her catchphrase is "Märchen!" (translation: "Fairytale!")
After forgetting a pair of shoes to Edel Rose's entrance exams, she is given a pair from Bell and started joining her and Wakana Morizono during their practices. The three became friends, but their friendship started to fade away resulting Otoha to even be kicked out of their practices. After finding her confidence when she joins Prism Stone, she returns to Edel Rose taking an audition to become Bell and Wakana's third member for the Try! Groovin' Session tournament. During the audition, Otoha learns to perform Prism Live finding out how much better it felt to speak up and become honest with herself.
Wakana MorizonoWakana Morizono is a lively member of Edel Rose. She is always bored, so Wakana likes to play tricks on Prism Stone in order to bring a bit of interest into her life. She is always by Bell's side which leaves people confused as to why and often gives her interesting readings about her future.
Wakana had always carried deep hatred towards Ann Fukuhara who introduced her to Prism Shows and assumed she stole it from her. After transferring to a different school from Ann's, she met Bell. Learning how fun it was to be friends with her, the two took the entrance exams to Edel Rose meeting Otoha Takanashi. After a reunion with Ann, she learned that Ann only performed the Prism Show in her place because Wakana fell sick with a fever. Wakana forgives and thanks her allowing herself to perform Prism Live. Though Wakana tried to deny her love for Bell to be fake after her selfishness, Wakana realized that she did love Bell after a lecture from Otoha and they make up becoming a unit called Bell Rose. She often says "nya" in her sentences.
Wakana also has feelings for Kazuki, just like Ann. She often gets jealous when she sees Ann around Kazuki.
