* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: During the fourth stage of her Social Link, she refers to Chie and Yukiko as "Green and Red" because of their [[ColorCodedCharacters trademark favorite colors]].

* {{Foil}}: To Ayane.

to:

* {{Foil}}: To Ayane. Unlike Ayane, she's confident in her acting, at least until her personal issues force her to question why she got started in the first place, and feels as though the other club members aren't pulling their weight.

* AffectionateNickname: She calls Yuuta "Yuu-kun" for most of the link. Interestingly enough, she actually ''stops'' doing so after they start to actually bond as mother and son.



* NotMeThisTime: The wife of a doctor Sayoko was previously involved with comes to the hospital to confront her about the doctor's latest infidelity... with another nurse.



* LoveHurts:

to:

* LoveHurts:LoveHurts: The pain of knowing that her husband, whom she loved, no longer remembered feeling the same way, caused her to believe that he died because she wished it, until seeing the letters, the proof of her love, helps give her perspective.


Added DiffLines:

* TarotMotifs: Played perhaps a bit more literally than most cases, since Hisano actually refers to herself as Death.
