A moment later, Chiaki tries on Kana's uniform as well, and notes that skirt is a bit loose, while the area around the chest is a perfect fit. Kana doesn't take those comments too well.

Kana seems to realize that he's not a {{Delinquent}} and considers him more or less a friend. But in ''Tadaima'' episode 5, when Fujioka acts like he feels hot because he wants to get an invitation to eat noodles with Kana, she misinterprets his actions as {{Delinquent}}-like and becomes afraid of him, especially when it looks like that he's fighting with Akira, but Fujioka is just asking him for advice.
* [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Lesbian]]: Downplayed and probably more a case of curiosity. She asks to grope Atsuko's breast after hearing that Haruka excitedly asks the same thing.

The latter tells her a secret move to use on him if all else fails. The next day, Kana confronts Fujioka and asks him why he calls her sisters by their first name, but her by last name. She tells him to call her "Kana-chan", but he turns around and says he's too shy to do that. She then utilizes Chiaki's "secret move", which was probably supposed to be a German suplex, but is unable to lift him. And to Fujioka, he completely misinterprets the move as this trope.

* HoistByHerOwnPetard: In episode 9, Kana forces Chiaki to stay up all night in an attempt to forcefully wake her up, much like the latter had done in an earlier scene. Chiaki gradually tells her sister [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech why she's such an idiot]], and says she'd write a ten thousand word essay, but doesn't have time for it. Both girls end up sleeping well into the afternoon after Kana kept forcing Chiaki to stay awake. A few days later, Chiaki wakes Kana up at night, and plops said essay down, and tells her to read it. When Kana attempts to go back to bed, Chiaki grabs her and drops her pants much in the same way Kana did to her in that earlier scene.

She comes with a large share of "swooning [[UnsettlingGenderReveal confused females]]" (and possibly some "outright SchoolgirlLesbians", too), as evident from episode 7 of ''Okawari''. Given that she wears the female school uniform, there is really not much room for doubt. Judging by the dialogue in that scene, it's apparently less that they don't know her gender and more that she is ''just that manly'', making this a weird mish-mash of EvenTheGuysWantHim and EvenTheGirlsWantHer. And Fujioka thinks, she's a boy.

Kana's popular classmate and a football player. Despite his affections for Kana, the latter instead sees him as a rival (thanks to Chiaki misinterpreting his letters of confession), earning the nickname "Banchou", a name he reluctantly accepts. As time passed he becomes one of the most welcome guests of the sisters, and even becomes a brother-figure for Chiaki.
