** The only real exception is Yuuki, who Sachiko trusts because he's Yumi's brother. Furthermore, she can stand to be around most males as long as they aren't touching her or acting like they're posing for a muscle magazine. Remember, she was canonically in love with Suguru until she realized he was a bit of a jerk. Sachiko's phobia of men isn't an allergy like in MariaHolic.

\n** "-sama" is also indicative of status. "Senpai" (and it counterpart term, "kouhai") indicates position. Senpai/Kouhai represents a simple senior/junior relationship. "-sama" implies more than that. If you've seen enough anime, you will hear things like "onee-sama". (Skuld of Ah! Megami-sama! and Kuroko of Railgun come to mind.) In those cases, it a form of praise and adoration. I imagine it's a similar case here. Many of the upperclassmen are in a soeur relationship, after all (at least in the main cast). Also, the main cast are adored by the majority of the school, so that helps explain them being address that way. (Also, the school is seemingly prestigious and the student body is meant to act in an elegant and refined manner. Using "sama" makes sense there in address your elders whereas the use of senpai sounds more like a working relationship.)

** Maybe the writer didn't want to rip off ''OniisamaE'' more than she already has.

* I'm not very familiar with the series (so let me know if this is explained at some point) and don't know JapaneseHonorifics much better than most non-Japanese speaking anime fans, but why exactly are the upperclassmen addressed as "-sama" rather than "-[[SenpaiKohai senpai]]"? Is this in an effort to imitate some school system in Japan (or their approximation of what goes on in a Catholic school), or is this meant to be different from any Catholic school in real life?
