!!Kousaku Hata
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kousakuhata_7641.jpg
->'''Voiced by''': ShintaroAsanuma

A sixteen-year-old who dreams of opening up his own "trendy" farm in Tokyo. He is extremely infatuated with the idol Yuka Kusakabe.
----
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:His family move to Aioi to start farming and failed. They fell into debt, forcing the mother to work a part-time job and the father to take another job. The stress of being in debt made her sick, so Kousaku's father had to work farther away from his family, until Kousaku's mother died and Kousaku's father abandoned the farm and his son. As a result, Minori's family raised him.]]
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even a well-known pervert like him has his limits, and some of Bekki-sensei's [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl depraved antics]] are way beyond what he can stomach.
* {{Fanboy}}: Of "Yuka-tan".
* GratuitousEnglish: Likes to sprinkle English words and phrases here and there:
-->"Kusakabe Yuka-tan is God!"
* HeroicBSOD: PlayedForLaughs in the beginning, when he heard of Yuka's sudden retirement.
* IKnewIt: His InUniverse reaction to Bekki-sensei openly admitting to [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections exploiting her status as daughter of a local assemblyman]] to remain in her post in spite of her sheer lack of moral values.
* LoonyFan: Borderline example towards Ringo's idol alter-ego Yuka-tan. So far [[EmotionlessGirl Ringo]] has no reaction to this.
* LovableSexManiac: One of his defining traits. He acts more restrained as the story progresses.
* MetaGuy: Frequently hangs [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] and [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] throughout the series.
* NiceGuy: He's generally a helpful person when given the chance.
* [[spoiler:ParentalAbandonment: He has lost all contact with his father and his mother is died from overwork and stress.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Does not notice Minori's affections for him (like that one time when she willingly gave him her ''panties''). His obsession with Yuka-tan doesn't help. This is lampshaded twice by Kei, who warns him that his obliviousness will get him in trouble one day, and by Rintarou, who pointed out why Minori makes for a good housewife (and even that still flies over his head).

!!Ringo Kinoshita / Yuka Kusakabe
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ringo_kinoshita_3770.jpg
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ringokinoshita_2735.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/YukariTamura

A popular teen idol, who suddenly retires from the industry, then appears one day as a transferee to Tamo Agricultural School under her real name, Ringo.
----
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: As her "student" persona.
* ACupAngst: So much so Kousaku had to restrain her from hitting Bekki-sensei with kitchen utensils in Episode 8 when she deliberately mocks her flat chest.
* BerserkButton: Kousaku being too intimate with another girl? She emits a rather scary aura. Bekki-sensei mocking her bust size? She will have ''none'' of that. Belittling her friends? She will ''not'' let it slide.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Minori's Betty.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Despite her aloofness, she can be very assertive whenever she wants to. In addition, don't make fun of her bust size.
* CityMouse: {{Subverted|Trope}}. Minori thinks she's this and tries to humiliate her with various farming contests, but the girl turns out to have quite a talent.
* CleavageWindow: Her idol outfit.
* ClingyJealousGirl:
** Does not like Kousaku being too close to Minori. Interestingly, this crops up almost right away. During the king's game in episode 2, she snaps her stick when Kousaku gets the king's stick and accidentally has Minori do strange stuff to him, such as putting her foot on his face.
** She has a CatFight with Minori in episode 3, then their dueling cools off for a while afterwards.
** In episode 11, after he comments that Minori's dress makes her look pregnant, the latter is about to comment that it would make them look like a married couple, but is interrupted by Ringo shoving her butt into and knocking her over. She also gets quite upset when she finds out that Minori's family is planning a marriage between her and Kousaku in episode 11.
* EmotionlessGirl: Her expression rarely changes when in SugarAndIcePersonality mode. In Episode 4, she says that she has lost her ability to smile. Her friends speculate that it is due to mental exhaustion from her idol career.
* GenkiGirl: Her "idol" persona.
* GirlishPigtails: Her "idol" looks and her "student" looks have different variants.
* GirlyRun
* IdolSinger: Her prior occupation.
* InSeriesNickname: Yuka-tan during her idol days and Ringo-cchi given to her by Minori.
* LethalChef: According to Minori and Kochou, her miso tastes sour and fishy. Then Ringo reveals she boiled her slippers' insole paddings to give it the appearance of red miso. Even Kousaku is not amused.
* {{Meganekko}}: Sports this look when being introduced to her new classmates.
* NervesOfSteel: Almost nothing can faze this girl. Being forced to wear a skimpy ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' bikini armor? She takes it in stride. A bunch of caterpillars? She calmly pick them up and put them in her hand one at a time. A smelly hen house? Doesn't flinch one bit. A horde of cockroaches? She ''stomps'' them one by one without batting an eye. However, she still has her own {{Berserk Button}}s as mentioned above.
* NewTransferStudent: Her sudden transfer to Kousaku's school kickstarts the story.
* TheQuietOne: What she is in real life, which greatly contrasts with her lively idol persona.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Acts very reserved toward her classmates.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: When not being an idol.
* TranquilFury: Due to being an EmotionlessGirl.
* WhenSheSmiles: When the stoic Ringo finally manages to have a heartfelt smile, all her friends are stunned.

Kousaku's tomboyish childhood friend, who has feelings for him.
----
* BigOlEyebrows: Her brows are thicker than the other main characters.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Ringo's Veronica.
* BigBreastPride: She loves to flaunt them at Ringo, or to try and get Kousaku's attention with them.
* BoyishShortHair
* CannotSpitItOut: Has feelings for Kousaku, but can't bring herself to tell him outright, although she hints at it, such as telling him he'll just marry a girl from their town and become a regular farmer in the first episode. He then points out that she's the only girl his age, causing her to blush.
* {{Childhood Friend|s}}: Grew up with Kousaku. In episode 5, Kosaku explains that because of his MissingMom, and his dad working late, that he had to live with her, and her parents essentially raised him due to his father abandoning him shortly after his mother died.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Outright declares that she won't let Ringo take Kousaku. She also destroyed all of the Ringo related merchandise in his room, such as posters, under the pretext of his mom asking her to do it.
* CovertPervert:
** In Episode 2, after seeing Kousaku getting excited at the chance of handling Ringo's panties, she decides that if Kousaku likes panties that much, he can take ''hers'' instead.
** In Episode 4, when Kousaku comes to her room late at night, she immediately assumes the dirtiest scenario, then proceeds to redecorate her room to look like a {{Love Hotel|s}} room and make herself ReadyForLovemaking.
** In Episode 5, she gets a little too excited when talking about bathing together with Kousaku.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Minori subjects Kousaku to physical punishment, sometimes justified, and other times due to some {{Tsundere}} tendencies.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/keikamatori_3033.jpg
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/WataruHatano

Kousaku's best friend and fellow pervert.
----
* AmbiguouslyBi: He seems to enjoy shooting yogurt on Kousaku a little too much.
* BromanticFoil: To Kousaku, albeit downplayed in that he actually has a girl pining for him in secret.
* TheComicallySerious: Tries to keep a cool-guy act in public, but when talking about perverted things, he actually gets riled up.
* IHaveNoSon: Inverted example. [[spoiler:Kei disowned his father, a businessman dealing in agriculture. In episode 10, he reveals that his mother died because of the chemicals his father insisted on using on their crops. As a result, he ran away and had his aunt adopt him so he could take her last name instead of his father's.]]
* LargeHam: Primarily when it concerns perverted subjects.
* LovableSexManiac: Just a little more restrained than Kousaku. Until he gets riled up.
* ObliviousToLove: Remains unaware of Kochou's affections for him; unlike Kousaku's case, however, he's not wholly at fault, given the latter's [[{{Tsundere}} awkward approach]].
* PutOnABus: He goes overseas at the end of episode 10 to get some more farm training.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: PlayedForLaughs.
* SeriousBusiness: He goes into a monologue about panties in Episode 2.

A snobbish girl in Animal Husbandry Department, known for a great rack and a rivalry with Agricultural Department, where Kousaku and his friends belong. Member of the "Shitennou" ("Four Kings of Farming"), a clique of the school's top students. She has a crush on Kei, and gets easily flustered from interacting with him.
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: Her schoolmates tend to call her "Boobs" instead of her real name.
* CannotSpitItOut: She likes Kei, but can't bring herself to tell him.
* DCupDistress: Yoshida suffers from this when some of the other students mentions her breasts in a derogatory manner.
* FriendToAllLivingThings
* FullNameBasis: How she addresses others, when she is not calling them pigs.
* GagBoobs: Her most prominent trait, which are ridiculously big, and very prone to {{Gainaxing}}.
* InSeriesNickname: "Boin Yoshida", "Boobs" ''(oppai)'' among other variants.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For all her snobbery, her love for animals is undisputed. One such instance is when Kousaku's gang manages to incapacitate a monkey who frequently messes up their crops and consider offing him (except Ringo), her solution is to send him to the local zoo, where he will be taken care of and have a handful of mates to keep him company.
* PutOnABus: She goes overseas with Kei to learn more farming techniques at the end of episode 10.
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: Suffers this in episode 9 after several of the other characters strip her down to her underwear in an attempt to have her join them at the "beach". Which in reality is one of the flooded fields at their school during a typhoon.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A towards Kei.
* VerbalTic: When flustered, she mispronounces "na" as "nya", "no" as "nyo", and so forth.
----

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bekkinatsumi_1813.jpg
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ChiwaSaito

Kousaku's homeroom teacher, who does not look, let alone act, like her forty years of age.
----
* ADayInTheLimelight: Episode 8 focuses on a day filled with her depraved antics going UpToEleven.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: According to her flashback, she was either bullied or ignored by her classmates back from way before she was her students' age.
* BerserkButton: Mentioning that she's a ChristmasCake to her face will not end well.
* BodySushi: Attempted this in episode 8 and her students weren't amused.
* ButtMonkey: She gets smacked around a lot in Episode 8.
** IronButtmonkey: She even gets thrown out a third floor window.
* ChristmasCake: She's a single 40-year-old, and very bitter about it. Adding insult to injury is the fact that her students are less than receptive to her childish antics.
* CuteAndPsycho: PlayedForLaughs. One minute she puts up a GenkiGirl act while talking about her escapades to her students, then come the next she's emitting a dark aura, speaking in a CreepyMonotone, and occasionally sporting DullEyesOfUnhappiness.
* TheEeyore: She sometimes acts like a GenkiGirl, but then when she mentions very private stuff she did in her personal life, such as being a ChristmasCake, it often brings down the mood of her entire class.
* EmotionBomb: PlayedForLaughs but her middle-aged Genma Fist causes her students fall into HeroicBSOD.
* FanDisservice: Her students do not appreciate her depraved behavior in the classroom one bit.

* MrsRobinson: Although she's single, she acts this way towards Kousaku at times.
* OlderThanSheLooks: Looks too young to be 40 years old.
* PowerGivesYouWings: When she gets pissed off enough, the wings on her usual outfit expands and she obtains superpowers.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: When Kousaku explicitly asks why she's still a teacher after all her shameless antics, she mentions that her father is a prefectural assemblyman.
* SenseiChan: She often puts on a GenkiGirl facade, and seems a little too unprofessional as a teacher towards her students most of the time. Then there's her [[LovableSexManiac depraved]] [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl antics]] that would make [[Manga/HidamariSketch Yoshinoya-sensei]] look ''innocent''.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Besides looking half her age, she will take every opportunity to suit up in rather skimpy outfits or show off in the nude, including stripping off and putting food on her body in front of her class. It only [[FanDisservice grosses her students out]] even more than she already does by even simply trying to be young.
* [[ManChild Woman Child]]: So much so she resents the fact that her younger sister apparently matured earlier than her, being already a mother to a ninth-grade girl with a healthy adolescent life (and a steady boyfriend).
