* [[spoiler: BrokenBird]]
* HonestAdviser: To Miki. She's very level-headed, and outright laughs at her when Miki asks her about her supposed date with Yuu.

->Voiced by: Creator/NobuyukiHiyama (JP)

** [[spoiler: GuileHero]]: Where his core motive of befriending Brian was to [[spoiler: get close and befriend Jinny]].
* GenreSavvy: Like Anju, [[spoiler: while his ultimate goal is to have Jinny become his girl, he's aware of Brian trying very hard to pursue her, while Jinny's trying to court Yuu, and that he himself might be a HopelessSuitor to her]].

* [[spoiler: JustFriends]]: With [[BirdsOfAFeather Anju]].

* MrFanservice: Constant eye winks that flashes BishieSparkle? Check. A [[TheCharmer smooth-talker]]? Double check. A scene of him showing his chest and buttoning up his shirt? ''Triple . Check!''
* NiceGuy: [[BewareTheNiceOnes But that doesn't mean he would allow you to take advantage of him nor allow you to bully his friends however you want]].
* NoSocialSkills: As to what he thinks of himself to be. But the only thing that was actually blocking him was his [[CowardlyLion lack of confidence]].

* TheSmartGuy: It was implied that Jinny would constantly ask him for school notes, and he already has been prepping himself to major in astronomy for college.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Although the English dub version went with "Bill" [[note]]Japanese romanization would spell "Bi-ru"[[/note]] for William's short name, but his official preference in the original Japanese version was actually "Will" [[note]]Wi-ru[[/note]], which is completely legit amongst western culture.
* WhatTheHellHero: On Jinny, when he learns about [[spoiler: her terrible prank on Miki.]] He's so [[TranquilFury pissed off]] that not only he calls her an horrible person, but ''he [[spoiler: [[ArmorPiercingSlap slaps]]]] her''.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Lavender Hair]]

!!Jinny Golding
->Voiced by: Yuka Koyama (JP), TaraPlatt (EN)
* BookDumb
* ClingyJealousGirl
* DumbBlonde: More like [[WomanChild "selfish and childish blonde"]] than truly dumb.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: Telling Miki that she was Yuu's "other woman" as a prank, out of jealousy. This makes the ''already'' distressed Miki break up with Yuu in the airport, as she's too emotionally exhausted to handle a LongDistanceRelationship.]]
** [[spoiler: MustMakeAmends: Does show genuine regret once reality sinks in.]]
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine. Dark to Doris' Light.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After Bill and Doris express their anger at her [[spoiler: for her treatment of Miki]].
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: The energetic girl to Bill's savvy guy, and she becomes surprisingly submissive when she comes to his presence.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She as a good sense. But of all guys for her to choose from, she fell for TheHero of our story on [[LoveAtFirstSight first sight]]. He's a very good choice, but she made the wrong move in attempting to own him through all the wrong morals and methods, and it was not after she received an [[spoiler: ArmorPiercingSlap]] that she was able to [[LoveEpiphany see who she truely fell for]].
