* GiftedlyBad: As Yuichi points out, it takes real skill to get zero at Whack-a-Mole. She doesn't like that statement too much.

** Of course, in the original canon (ie. the VN), Mai [[BiTheWay leans as much towards Yuichi]] as Sayuri.

Tropes associated with Yuuichi:
Yūichi:



A [[GenkiGirl cheerful girl]] well-known both within and outside the story for her VerbalTic and for her [[TrademarkfavoriteFood bordering-on-unreasonable love of taiyaki]], Yuuichi meets her early on after she [[CrashIntoHello collides with him head first.]] They quickly become good friends, and this quickly [[RunningGag becomes a running joke]] (though it's later toned down to her simply [[TheGlomp glomping him]]). She is very short and behaves rather childishly, in spite of being the [[OlderThanTheyLook same age as Yuuichi.]] She is looking for something important to her, [[EasyAmnesia but she can't remember what it is.]] She is the most prominent of the girls in the story and Yuuichi's kanon (pardon the bad pun) love interest.

* {{Bokukko}}: She calls herself by the masculine pronoun "boku" in the Japanese version, despite being not particularly boyish herself. At one point Yuuichi tries to convince her to use more feminine pronouns, but she ends up being uncomfortable with this.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Yuuichi in her route and the anime.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: [[spoiler:In the anime, she believes in the power of the last wish she made over the angel doll so much that it comes true, [[WorldHealingWave helping everyone else recover from whatever bad things have happened to them over the course of the story.]] In both anime and VisualNovel she also believes so much in her and Yuuichi's childhood promises to each other that her comatose body is able to create a solid AstralProjection of herself into the outside world.]]

* CrashIntoHello: How she first meets Yuuichi or, rather, how she meets him ''again'' after not seeing him for seven years. It becomes an obviously invoked trope when Ayu keeps doing it on purpose, making it a RunningGag for a while when she keeps trying to tackle hug him. 'Trying' because he is prone to dodging.

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:When Yuuichi tells her right before she disappears the second time to make her third wish on the angel doll, she wishes that Yuuichi would just forget about her, because that way he won't be distraught over what's happened to her- he rejects that wish, and tells her to wish for something else. So in the anime she wishes for something else instead, and this wish heals everyone else, implying that she simply wished for him to be happy.]]
* KiddieKid: She's the same age as Yuuichi, but she acts like a little girl in more than one sense.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: She knows she's looking for something, and she knows it's important, but she can't for the life of her remember what it is. [[spoiler:It's the angel doll Yuuichi gave her.]] Also, she doesn't seem to remember that [[spoiler:she's in a coma, and when she finds out the truth, she vanishes, since, after all, she is an AstralProjection.]]
* MeetCute: Par for the course in this series. She meets Yuuichi by [[CrashIntoHello colliding with him head-on]] while running away from an irate taiyaki vendor she accidentally stole from.

* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse. Yuuichi tends to remind her of her unintentionally Dining and Dashing a few times.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:When Yuuichi remembers Ayu falling from a tree, he assumes the Ayu that has been with him until now was her ghost. However, turns out Ayu is still alive, but in a coma.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Yuuichi, since she's pretty clearly the main heroine.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She's Yuuichi's age, but she looks to be not much older than twelve. Yuuichi [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this [[TheGadfly mercilessly]] and Ayu is not amused. This is mostly thanks to her height and [[HiddenBuxom baggy coat]], though.

* OutOfFocus: She's completely absent during Makoto's story arc in the anime. Lampshaded in the first episode since the arc, as she mentions to Yuuichi that she hasn't seen him in ages.

She is hardworking, upbeat and very athletic, being the captain of the school's track team because to her running ability, gained from years of having to run to school to be on time due to her sleep habits.

* IronicEcho: The wake up message on the aforementioned alarm clock? She says this word for word when she tries to get Yuuichi out from bed.

A [[IllGirl sickly girl]] that Yuuichi and Ayu run into early on, and who is frequently seen hanging around outside the school during classes, apparently waiting for "someone important to her". She's quiet, peaceful and pretty pleasant and normal (though she does have a somewhat odd sense of humor and an odd fondness for eating ice cream in below-freezing weather, not to mention her almost complete terribleness at arcade games), other than being terminally ill, of course. She also has some troubles at home that are vaguely alluded to.

She attended school for exactly one day before she fainted in class and was sent home to recover, and does not return until late in the story.

Makoto is a mischievous, [[FieryRedHead red-haired]] {{Tsundere}} who accosts Yuuichi in the market the day after he arrives and claims to be holding a grudge against him. [[EasyAmnesia However, she doesn't remember why]], and, in fact, [[IdentityAmnesia she doesn't remember very much at all, not even her own name.]] She accepts Akiko's offer to live at her house until she remembers, becoming a PrettyFreeloader in the process. She also develops a fondness for pork buns and romance manga. All the while, she attempts to remember who she is, but it turns out she may have been better off not knowing.

* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: Leads to a DownerEnding. [[spoiler:When she was still a fox, she made a wish to be able to meet with Yuuichi again, which was granted by turning her into a human and giving her human intelligence. The price was losing all her memories and then slowly losing all her intelligence and motor controls until she eventually dies with only about as much intelligence as a fox possesses.

* IdentityAmnesia: She doesn't remember who she is at all, just that she has an inexplicable grudge against Yuuichi. In fact, it takes her some time to even remember her own name [[spoiler:and it's not even hers]]. As is revealed later, [[spoiler:this is because she's not actually human, and, as a fox, doesn't exactly have an identity in the human sense. Also, the act of becoming human erased her previous memories. She took the name Makoto Sawatari from one of the few things that she did manage to remember, which was Yuuichi telling her (while she was still a fox) about an older girl by that name he had a crush on.]]

Mai is a [[TheStoic calm]], [[NotSoStoic seemingly]] EmotionlessGirl who comes to the school at night to fight demons. Because she has been seen there at night and because windows have been inexplicably broken, she is perceived as being responsible, and has been branded a [[JapaneseDelinquents delinquent]] by most of the students and the staff at the school. She is excellent with a sword, and she seems to know things about the strange goings-on around the town, giving Yuuichi cryptic advice on several occasions. Her best friend [[LesYay (and possibly more)]] is Sayuri Kurata, and she aspires to be a veterinarian.

* OpenMindedParent: She has no problem with taking in "strays", and seems unusually accepting of the idea of girls she barely knows staying at her house. She also takes Yuuichi's word for it when he explains the truth about Makoto. And there was that time when, after Makoto's firework prank backfired on her, she came to investigate the noise and, rather than get angry, she asked if Makoto wanted to play with fireworks.

Mai's best friend (with whom she has a fair amount of LesYay), Sayuri is a [[StepfordSmiler seemingly cheerful]] girl with an odd habit of [[ThirdPersonPerson referring to herself in the third person]]. Her family is rather wealthy, and she is a good cook. She and Mai have seemingly diametrically opposed personalities, which causes Yuuichi to remark that "they sure do make an odd couple of girls". She is also referred to as being almost like Mai's older sister. Kind, friendly and gentle as she is, though, she has her own sorrows, and these are what drew her and Mai together.

Kaori Misaka is Nayuki's best friend and the object of Kitagawa's unrequited romantic interest ([[ButtMonkey she mostly laughs at him, ignores him or makes him do heavy lifting for her]]). She seems to be fairly well-adjusted (if somewhat [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] and maybe a bit no-nonsense), but she has some fairly serious family issues that eventually come up. She's also the [[ClassRepresentative rep]] for Nayuki and Yuuichi's class at school. She is sometimes seen staring wistfully out the window of the school.

The resident ButtMonkey and [[TheChewToy chew toy]] at Yuuichi's school, and a friend (of sorts) of Yuuichi's.

* StandardHeroReward: Very mild, not completely romantic, partial example. Here's the context: [[spoiler: Kuze, the Student Council president, is trying to get Mai expelled because he thinks Mai deliberately caused trouble at the dance by swinging her sword around. Kitagawa, who is on the council, lies to Kuze and tells him that swinging the sword around was ''Kitagawa's'' idea, since it made such a great "exhibition." This lie saves Mai from expulsion. Kitagawa's reward for helping Yuuichi save Mai and not liking to see beautiful faces like Sayuri's sad: Sayuri lets him hold her hands for a few seconds to thank him, causing him to blush at the contact.]]
