* ForgivenButNotForgotten: While Kotoura's forgiveness leads the others to also forgive Hiyori for what happened, it's made clear multiple times that the incidents prior to her HeelFaceTurn are not completely ignored - Manabe in particular shows multiple moments of distrust for several episodes, and Zenzou drops several hints that he knows (including about how Manabe got injured) and isn't going to tolerate any further incidents. The "Hiyori trapped in a burning cage" parade float was a particularly stark reminder that Zenzou has limits to his charity.



* HeelRealization: She has one in the third episode - she's already wracked by guilt about Manabe's injuries, and she knows Kotoura's powers will let her discern what happened immediately. When Kotoura never says a word to the class about what happened and instead just uses her powers to figure out where Manabe is being treated, Hiyori realizes that Manabe was right about Kotoura all along in his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. This prompts the above HeelFaceTurn in the following episode.



* ObliviousToLove: He's either this, he's just messing with Yuriko or he really does think of them as JustFriends or LikeBrotherAndSister.

* TheSpock

* TheSpockTheSpock: He never gets emotional, although he makes it clear that he has them; he's just not expressive at all.



* TinySchoolboy

to:

* TinySchoolboyTinySchoolboy: Haruka is on the short side, and yet she's still somehow OneHeadTaller than he is. Yuriko is nearly twice his height. Based on the flashbacks, it appears he hasn't grown an inch since middle school.



* {{Fiction 500}}: He's on it, if the events of episode 6 are any indication.

* {{Fiction 500}}: He's on it, if the events of episode 6 are any indication. To whit, the discovery of petroleum on his property only has a small effect on his financial portfolio.

* BerserkButton: Mock, belittle, or just straight mess with Haruka in general and prepare to have his wrath brought down upon you.
* [[BewareTheNiceOnes Beware The Nice]] and [[BewareTheSillyOnes Silly Ones]]: Underestimating him is a very terrible idea. See badass and LetsGetDangerous.

* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler: He managed to beat four dojo members that Hiyori sent after him.]] Also, him singlehandedly standing up to and overcoming many of the pitfalls that could befall a relationship a BrokenBird could be re-broken by. Cruel classmates, ridicule, all the problems of dating a psychic, abusive parents, extensive issues stemming from trauma; you name it, Yoshihisa refuses to let it get in the way of true love. It's enough to [[DefrostingIceQueen show Haruka]] her faith isn't misplaced. Keeping in mind her extreme cynicism and bad experiences, Manabe is quite the romantic badass, if you will.

* BigSecret: He has one during the second half of Episode 7. It's actually [[spoiler: a SurpriseParty for Haruka's birthday which is celebrated at the end of the episode]]. The fact that he managed to keep this away from [[{{Telepathy}} Haruka]] that entire time was extremely {{Badass}} on his part!

* {{Badass}}: She's a trained Martial Artist, trained enough to punch enough wind to blow out a candle from across the room.

** In episode 8 Haruka has a flashback on how her mother took cared of her when she was ill--before recognizing her {{telepath|y}}ic abilities. That's a far cry from how the mother was latter, which is easily summarized as being an AbusiveParent.

* MindOverManners: She hasn't quite figured out yet that maybe she should be more discrete about talking about her powers. [[WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis Of course, then there wouldn't be a plot.]] Later on, though, she {{invoked|trope}} this to maintain a JerkassFacade so that people doesn't come close to her. The problem is, it doesn't work for Yoshihisa--he doesn't have a secret he doesn't mind sharing, his perversion included.
