—Corpse Party: NEXT, (Tagline)
Masao Ide has never fit in particulary well at Lexern senior high, his new school, so in an attempt to make him feel more included into his new friend-group, Emiko Suzuki suggests a charm she found one day while browsing the internet, sure it'll make their friendships stronger.
But when the group of seven tear the charm into pieces, it sends them into a horrifying dimension of which none of them were prepared for. Now, their only choices are to escape the hellish school, die trying, or face their ultimate despair.
- Miu Hiranuma: Despite being mute from birth, Miu never lets it get in her way, and has easily become the most popular girl in class for her friendly attitude.
- Suzume Saito: The tough and cold class representative. Suzume has little tolerance for her friends slacking, and isn't afraid to hide it. Despite this, she's incredibly attached to her best friend Miu.
- Keiko Shobo: An often bullied, timid girl, Keiko likes to keep to herself, but opens up around her friends, especially Masao, who she sees as an older brother figure.
- Emiko Suzuki: A firm but friendly girl, Emiko sees her situation in Heavenly Host as an opportunity to prove herself.
- Masao Ide: A short and closed-off guy, he doesn't feel he fits in with his friends, and would much rather spend time only with Keiko.
- Noboru Shidehara: A cynical, tired boy who when not sleeping in classes, skips them to work.
- Hayate Suzuki: The younger fraternal twin of Emiko, Hayate is the class clown and would do anything to cheer up his friends when they're down.
- Mikomi Katsuhiro: A student from Mizukihana who seems all too desensitized to what's happening.
- Shigeta Miyabe: A strange man who seems oddly prepared for his situation, and is unfazed by the terror around him.
