- Ambiguously Gay: At least in the anime. She visits the café in a route where she isn't an employee to flirt with the Heroine, seems a little betrayed when she likes Ikki (and may subtly be trying to influence her away from him despite not showing any interest in him herself, unlike Mine), and is really happy about the high female to male ratio on one of the trips.
