A delinquent and leader of his three-man clique, who made the mistake of trying to bully the Game Development Club (temp) one day, only to end up being bullied into joining. Now an unwilling member of the Game Development Club (temp), he is forced to spend his days bitterly dealing with their nonsensical antics.
Accidental Pervert: Twice towards Takao and her Gag Boobs — in Chapter 6/Episode 3, when Roka shoves her in jealousy for trying to come closer to Kenji (only to be rebuffed by his spiky hair), only for him to turn around and get a faceful; and in Chapter 9/Episode 4, when the first thing he sees upon exiting the clubroom are her bouncing assets as she is jumping up and down while trying to remove the "True Game Development Club" poster hung over his clubroom after winning the School Festival contest against the other Game Development Club.
Badass: Although he doesn’t get many chances to show it.
Guile Hero: Since he can't compete with the girls physically, the few times he manages to one-up his other club members are through deception and quick thinking.
Hair-Trigger Temper: Kazama is very no-nonsense. Considering the rest of the cast, this goes about as well as expected.
Hero-Worshipper: Of Shawn Conecone, who saved his life as a child. So far he is the only teacher whose class he consistently attends.
Hidden Depths: He cooks both for himself and Noe, as his parents are frequently busy with work.
Imagine Spotting: He has the uncanny ability to criticize other people's memory/fantasy scenes.
Japanese Delinquent: He's suppose to be one, but, as everyone points out, he's much more noble than your typical delinquent.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Leaning on a pretty Nice Guy with a fairly convincing Jerkass Façade. He's brash, disrespectful, and can be a bully because he can; that said, he's actually a good friend, classmate, clubmate and brother, as shown when he agreed to join the Game Development Club (temp) to help Roka fulfill her dreams, defended Takao before a PTA meet after the "zipper-launcher" incident, and treats the otherwise beleaguered Funabori with kindness. Such actions as these end up winning their affection.
Large Ham: It comes with being voiced by the same guy who gave the world Kamina. It’s not how he usually acts, but the sheer absurdity around him on a daily basis results in him always yelling at everything! Almost all the time!!! This becomes more prevalent as the series goes on.
The short, quirky founder and captain of the Game Development Club (temp). She used to be a member of the real Game Development Club, but she didn't get along with the rest of its members, so she started her own.
Action Girl: She's surprisingly physically capable and is a powerful fighter in her own humorous right.
Adorkable: The very core of her character. Everything that Roka does is adorably dorky.
One-Hit Kill: To be bagged by Roka is synonymous with certain defeat.
Open Secret: Almost everyone in Fujou Academy knows she is the "Secret Boss" of the school, though it never goes farther than mere whispers.
Playing with Fire: Her "elemental" motif is fire. It’s actually darkness, though she still still sticks with the whole fire theme.
Rage Quit: Does this to Kazama and Takao after trying to bend the rules when losing against them in "rock-paper-scissors".
Reality Ensues: Roka manages to save Kazama from falling out of a window and makes an impressive speech about how she wants him in her club, only to quickly realize she does not have the strength to pull him back up, let alone keep her grip on him for much longer.
Declaration of Protection: Made this vow for Roka back when they were children after putting Tama to task for destroying a sand castle they were making.
Dishing Out Dirt: Earth is her "elemental" motif, evidenced by her habit of throwing punches (which she also claims to be earth-"elemental") and hurling dirt on people, as well as her fondness for sand castles.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Leaning on a total Jerkass with a well-concealed Hidden Heart of Gold. High-horsed and manipulative she certainly is, but everything she does, for better or worse, are always for the sake of Roka (best shown in her confession to Takao during the School Festival), and occasionally she shows signs that she's not really as bad as she makes herself look like.
Knight Templar Big Sister: To Roka in a surrogate way — harm her (physically or emotionally), and she will do anything in her power to lay down the pain on you. Tama was foolish enough to try, and thus became the very first victim of Chitose's "live burials".
Pet the Dog: Roka is (mostly) the only person who she ever shows any semblance of kindness, though there are a few exceptions. At the end of the School Festival she comforts a crying Takao after losing their bet, telling that she doesn't care for winning, so long as Roka keeps her club. In a rare moment of honesty she even apologizes for her angry outburst that nearly destroyed Takao's club last year when she learned what they were doing to Roka, admitting that she let her wrath get the better of her back then.
Playboy Bunny: Dressed up as one during the school festival to attract people to the club's games.
Used to Be a Sweet Kid: So sweet Kazama refused to believe it, but yes, there was a time when Chitose was anything but a bully — not until she needed to look like one to protect Roka from the likes of Tama.
The Chew Toy: He's a pretty decent guy, but unfortunate, painful things just keep happening to him.
Chick Magnet: Shown in his introduction in Episode 6 of the anime to be pretty popular with the girls, save Roka (who utterly fears him) and Funabori (who thinks he isn't her type).
The Friend Nobody Likes: Zigzagged. On one hand, Roka tries to block him out of her head and keep him in the dark concerning club activities (with good reason), and even Kenji finds him creepy. On the other hand, Kenji's friends immediately took a liking to him (because he bribed them) and now they're almost always together.
Put on a Bus: Takao tags along with the Game Development Club (temp)’s Cast Herd for the most part, so the other members stopped being relevant after the first few chapters, although Inada will show up occasionally.
A very brief and offhand reference was made to Sakuragaoka in chapter 44.
President of the real Game Development Club and an old friend of Roka. While appearing elegant and dignified among her schoolmates, the rest of Roka's club see her as nothing more but a big-breasted, easily-intimidated crybaby who is nevertheless an important friend still.
Adorkable: Everything that she does that involves Kazama.
Cry Cute: Played for Laughs after Chitose forced her to admit defeat on their bet to see which of their booths during the School Festival would attract the most visitors, and again when Kenji unwittingly reminded her of her loss.
The Ditz: She's rather slow on the uptake and often acts faster than she thinks.
Wardrobe Malfunction: During the Tournament Arc, she tried to zip her tracksuit to avoid embarrassment. Because her chest is too big for the jacket, the zipper inevitably snapped, sending the pull tab flying toward Kenji and accidentally knocking him out. That incident actually caused a mini-scandal, as concerned parents thought the PE suits are dangerous (when actually, it's just her breasts' fault).
"In other words, you'd like to do that to the President's chest?"
The very, very perverted vice-president of the real Game Development Club. Apparently a freshman, like the other Game Development Club members. One of the more... "hotblooded" characters in the series.
Face of a Thug: Has a rather intimidating appearance, but doesn't harm a fly.
Fall Guy: In Episode 2, someone alerted the police of a group of people in masked cloaks surrounding a man (it's actually the real Game Development Club in disguise, pressuring Kenji to leave Roka's Game Development Club). When the cops came, only Yamada, knocked unconscious by Kenji on reflex upon seeing him in drag, remained unchanged, and thus was taken by the cops.
Kenji, Takao and Tsutsumi: "We're very sorry, Yamada-kun..."
Student Council Vice-President and one of Kazama’s friends. While he openly disparages the kind of lifestyle Kenji leads, in private he is more or less an honorary member of his gang, and aspires to usurp Chitose’s presidency. Also a helpless, hardcore, self-certified masochist.
Butt Monkey: And surprisingly so. Because she's such a perfect wife, she gets caught up in the Game Development Club's antics, screwed with by everyone who isn't Kenji, and even gets yelled at for trying to be nice. In addition, every time she shows favor towards Kenji, every other guy in the class surrounds her and causes a ruckus, to the point where she's even forced to bandage everyone's shoulders when they aren't even hurt.
Meta Girl: Not as often as Kenji, but she still counts.
Nice Girl: Not a mean bone in her body. She even comes to class early to tidy up the room and water the plants.
Parody Sue: She's sweet, considerate, and skilled at household chores. Whatever angle you look at her, she makes for the perfect housewife. And all she gets for her trouble is being constantly inconvenienced by her admirers and having to bear with the general insanity of her schoolmates.
Kenji’s younger sister and a tenth-grader at Fujou Academy.
Berserk Button: Mentioning how her hair is spiky, let alone making fun of it.
Big Brother Worship: A reasonable example. While at school they don't interact much with each other, in private she is pretty close with Kenji and makes his lunches. She is annoyed when Sakura acts like Kazama is her brother as well. And when really hurt, she does call him "onii-chan".
Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: She's a tsukkomi, just like her brother. The girls take this trait as confirmation that she is indeed Kenji's sibling.
Emotionless Girl: There's something... off about her. Tama normally does not express strong emotions and blankly stares ahead with wide eyes.
Fetish: Being called "cute". It ultimately becomes her undoing, when Kenji exploits it to compliment her on how better she would look without pigtails, fazing her long enough for Roka to swoop in with head-bag in hand.
Schoolyard Bully All Grown Up: As a child she's been bullying the kids in the local playground, and not even a firsthand experience of Chitose's wrath fazed her one bit — if anything, it only made her hate Chitose even more, to the point of actually thinking up of ways to counteract anything she (or Roka) can think of.
The former Student Council Vice-President. Hardcore otaku, boasts about watching anime that air late at midnight, and constantly keeps his eyes near-shut, no matter the situation.
Big Brother Instinct: Turned into a joke in his case, as he immediately changed his idea of taking Sakura 2-on-1 after she told him that "Naganuma-oniichan would never do something that dirty". His reaction? Charging towards a retreating Kazama and Roka while loudly proclaiming "onii-chan's will to fight fair and square".
Book Dumb: Kusshi-senpai implies that she keeps failing to get into Fujou and join Roka because both of her procrastination and frequently being distracted by Roka's activities.
Cry Cute: Played for Laughs whenever she thinks her sister's club activities are beginning to take a toll on their sisterly relationship, and again while whining that she doesn't want Kenji for a substitute older sibling (and that is after she herself did so as a retort to Roka "disowning" her and putting Noe in her place).
My Sister Is Off Limits: Dislikes anyone she thinks is consuming Roka's time, particularly Kenji, who Roka keeps talking about all the time, even at home
"You'd better go home. It'd be rude to the kids who are playing seriously."
A third-year and veritable source of information. One of the most dependable and caring characters in the series, and is regarded as a "big sister" figure to all of Fujou High, despite her scary face and side ponytail.
Scary Flashlight Face: What her default facial expression looks like most of the time. Complete with emphasized shading on the upper half of her face.
Therapy Backfire: Her attempt at getting Saginuma to return back to school after having her former 1st-place title of "Biggest Breasts in School" stripped by Takao... It didn't end favorably (with Saginuma being completely brushed off and Kusshi herself fainting due to working too hard for it.)
