* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He once prohibited pornographic material to be smuggled or kept in the headquarters and left Shige and his crew to fend off for themselves; the situation devolved into an ideological and political clusterfuck within the crew, with rampant betrayals and backstabbing. The fighting gets so out of control that he has to intervene and turn a blind eye to the pornography so that the unit can at least function.

* FirstNameBasis: Especially with Asuma, but she makes a point to call her closest friends by their first name.



* NotSoAboveItAll: She's not very good at having Asuma being ''actually'' mad at her; while he berates her all the time, it's when he stops talking to her that really gets to her. In a way, Noa basically expresses that she cannot bear the idea of him being mad.

Born in Tomakomai, Hokkaido in 1978, she is the pilot of the first Ingram in Unit 2 (first forward of Division 2). She loves Labors (to the point of obsession) and nicknames her Ingram "Alphonse" after her deceased pet dog and cat. A dedicated police officer, very easy going and cheerful, she never loses her cool. That is unless somebody damages her beloved Alphonse.

NotGoodWithPeople: Ōtah is good at neither receiving praise nor getting criticized. The problem lies in the fact that he takes everything too seriously and he takes a single-minded (and most of the times wrong) approach towards his everyday situations. It's fair to point out that he does have sporadic instances of actually being right, but they are really, ''really'' sparse.
* TestosteronePoisoning: He strives for conveying an air of manly, manly manliness on his everyday. It has the opposite effect on people, who find him considerably obnoxious as a result.
