Charasin ("Karashin" in Crunchyroll's translation of the anime and "Calasin" in Yen Press's translation of the light novel), also known as Young Boss Charasin, is the guild master of Shopping District 8, one of the top three production guilds in Akihabara. He is a Human Summoner-Merchant and a member of the Round Table Alliance. His Overskill is Multi-Line.
Charasin's real name is Yousuke Mikami (三上洋介 Mikami Yōsuke), and he works in an advertising agency.
Charasin is considered to be a very shrewd businessman and will take advantage of any transaction or deal to ensure that he gets the largest profit possible.
Prior to the Catastrophe
Charasin worked in an advertising agency. In Elder Tale, he partied with Maryelle occasionally until they formed their own guilds and were too busy to interact with each other as a result.
The Catastrophe arc
Charasin can be seen in the Inn, discussing something with another player.
Round Table Alliance arc
Charasin checks on the guild's inventory with Taro, noting that they were almost empty. Having been summoned by Maryelle and Henrietta for a meeting, he decides to take advantage of the situation. However, having been given instructions by Shiroe, the two women manage to persuade Charasin into agreeing to supplying them with ingredients for the Crescent Moon Refreshment Stand for 30,000 gold.
He stays to attend Crescent Moon's meeting with The Roderick Firm's and Marine Organization's guild masters Roderick and Michitaka. Along with the other two guild masters, he comes under the false conclusion that there was some sort of new legendary quest that Crescent Moon Alliance was undertaking and agreed to cooperate with Marine Organization and The Roderick Firm in donating a combined total of 4.5 million gold to fund this quest. Later on, the truth about the gold's use is discovered, but the three crafting guild masters receive Crescent Moon Alliance's food recipe secrets.
Charasin and the bosses of the other Production Guilds reveal that they had created a Steam Engine, which proves that out-of-game devices can be created. As a result, new inventions and products will be in high demand, and therefore will get the economy going. As a result, he and the other bosses agree to the creation of the Round Table Alliance.

Charasin and Roderick stay behind to work on the Ocypete and other projects, after beating Michitaka in a game of rock-paper-scissors.

|Great Eight-Pronged Rake (八岐大熊手): A long pole-arm with its tip spit into eight. A rare Artifact-class weapon that increases gold drop from monsters. It usually acts as decoration in the guild hall.|
|Lucky Dragon Hat (幸運竜の帽子): Production-class armor crafted by Tailors using "Crest of Happiness", a rare drop from Lucky Dragons. It increases the wearers movement speed and evasion rate.|
|Maryona's Saddle Bags (マリョーナの鞍袋): Magical saddle which was a reward for a level 80 quest "Maryona's Jet Black Horse". It has a larger capacity than a "Magical Bag of Holding" but it reduces movement speed when in use, so it is usually mounted on a horse.|
