Relationship

Hirotaka Nifuji

Narumi is seen to be open to him and she seems to be amazed by his gaming skills. They often hangout in a bar after work and Narumi sometimes visits at Hirotaka's to play games. Hirotaka was the one who asked Narumi to be his girlfriend and promised to help her grind for materials or levels whenever she wanted in an unknown game they were playing. He also promised to wait for her whenever she worked overtime, never dash her hopes and make her cry, never tell her that she's in the wrong, and lastly, he'd table for her at an event (two weeks after Episode 1), which instantly made Narumi agreed with him (As seen in Episode 1).

They have known each other ever since they were children and became friends after Narumi asked Hirotaka to trade powerful characters for cuter ones (as explained by Hirotaka).

Hanako Koyanagi

Narumi and Hanako have a friendly relationship. They find out by pure chance that they had previously crossed paths outside of work: Narumi recognizing that Hanako crossplayed as Date Masamune at a Sengoku Basara festival she attended and bought some of her doujinshi and Hanako realizing that Narumi is one of her favorite doujinshi artist, referring to her by her pen name, "Miss ***" (much to her embarrassment). This leads to them bonding over their hobbies, as they have never had female friends who shared the same interest as them.

Narumi recommends her favorite Boys Love (BL) manga to her while Hanako proposes that they cosplay together, declaring that they are "soulmates". They also debate which of their boyfriends should be the seme (dominating top) and the uke (receiving bottom) in their yaoi pairing fantasy.
