* NotAMorningPerson: A surprising aspect of the, at the time, cold and serious Chieri. Seeing her wake up, it's clear her body is on auto-pilot and actual awareness hasn't set it. She doesn't so much get out of bed and out of the room as stumble stupidly in the general direction of the door. * TheOjou: Easily the classiest of the trainees, which makes her attempts to mimic the more lively and tomboyish Yuko awkwardly hilarious.
