* {{Expy}}: She's a grown-up version of [[{{Characters/Toradora}} Taiga Aisaka]] from ''{{LightNovel/Toradora}}'' (if the latter had continued pursuing [[RomanticFalseLead Yuusaku Kitamura]]). They are both immaculately dressed rich girls with a penchant for overreacting, who have trouble making friends, are overtly self-conscious about their appearance, and whose love interests do not reciprocate their affections; they both have brown RapunzelHair and eyes and are [[SoBeautifulItsACurse uniquely beautiful in an inapproachable way]]; they also are about the same age (2 year difference give or take) and they both end up [[spoiler:falling in love with their crushes' best friends and are utterly unable to stop visiting the guys' apartments]]. Kouko and Taiga both have two left feet and are notoriously bad at the kitchen. The main differences lie in their body size (of course, since Taiga is '''tiny''') and in that Kouko herself is nowhere as violent or demeaning as Taiga nor she is as insecure. As a matter of fact, they are both characters penned by the same author.

* WhatHaveIDone: [[Spoiler:She goes through a serious bout of depression when she and her friends are involved in a traffic accident because she fell asleep at the wheel; had Banri not intervened during the accident, the car would have been sent into a cliff. Her depression is so bad that not even her dad can approach her until Banri is able to pull her out of her funk]].

** [[spoiler: She realizes how out of her element she is, and how unprepared she actually is for the trials and tribulations of adult life when she almost costs the lives of her and her friends by having fallen asleep at the wheel during their beach trip; Banri even tells her that, to be fair, she's barely out of high school in the first place]].

* BrokenTears: She finally scampers Mitsuo to meet with everyone so that [[spoiler:Banri can explain to them what's happening to him; then, they encounter Banri going through a disoriented crisis and doesn't recognize them at all, running away terrified. Once Linda finally finds him and puts him on a cab to head home, he catches a glimpse of Kouko standing on the street, wailing inconsolably at having seen Banri completely go off the rails]].

* AdultFear: [[spoiler:Seeing the person you love slowly drift into mental illness is as terrifying as it gets. As a matter of fact, this is the very reason she has to break up with him, mostly because she thinks that she is incapable of handling it while still being his significant other; however, it doesn't work for her]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheReliableOne:
** He is a kind, sociable and friendly guy who will not hesitate to help his friends in need, making his bouts with mental illness particularly glaring and painful;
** Subverted in the case of his personality before the accident, which shows that he was rather wimpy and unreliable (though not less kind or friendly).

* ImRightHere: She looks different enough not to be recognized without her makeup, so Kouko and Banri have no idea of who she is until she points it out later complaining that they both ignored her.
