* TeensAreMonsters:
** Ayumu's best friend, Shi-chan, telling her in a jealous rage that Ayumu was a burden to her and saying, "I wish you were dead!" And this is what ''starts'' the plot.
** Manami. She's manipulative, bullies anyone who doesn't fit into her GirlPosse, and is the ringleader of all of the bullying against Ayumu, Hatori, and just about anyone who doesn't comply with her. [[spoiler:She later begins trying to ''kill'' people, and even after Ayumu [[InterruptedSuicide saves her life]], Manami says that she bullies people ''because it's fun''.]]
** Katsumi. [[spoiler:He traps Ayumu in his house, ties her up, and takes photographs of her bound up and nude - which he constantly threatens to reveal to others, alongside her self-harm scars - and when Ayumu throws his cell phone into a puddle, he convinces the onlooking students that it's because she's jealous of Manami's and his relationship. And Ayumu is far from being the first girl he's photographed like that!]]
** Pretty much the ''entire student body''. Most students are quick to engage in bullying others, [[spoiler:doing things like wrapping Ayumu up in a photography blanket and rolling her into the wall several times, trying to force her to swallow needles, and even throwing her desk out the window. And then when it's revealed that ''Manami'' is the real bully, they're just as quick to turn on her, showing no remorse for the students they victimize.]]

ThirdPersonPerson: Manami.Manami refers to herself as "Manami" or "Mana" a lot.

They realize that she is the one causing the problems, and turn on her fast and hard. LaserGuidedKarma does not even begin to describe it!
** It actually starts back in chapter 56 when everyone thinks that she tried to frame Hatori for cheating.
