    The Game Development Club (temp) 

The Game Development Club (temp)

Tropes shared by the club in general:

Kenji Kazama

"It's too late to go down the coward's path now. I'll rule this school with my fists!"

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.
  • Blow You Away: His "elemental" motif, on account of his name.
  • Blue with Shock: Might as well be his default expression.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: He is the tsukkomi. The rest of the world is the boke. The sheer amount of punchlines he drops in later chapters pushes this trope Up to Eleven.
  • Buxom Is Better: He seems to think so, but not really touched upon other than an offhanded comment to Takao to distract her.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: He has a harem and doesn't seem to realize that they like him, excluding Roka, who is the most proactive of the lot.
  • Cool Big Bro: To Noe.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: Almost a regular feature of his.
  • Determinator: This guy just hates to lose.
  • Distressed Dude: While Kazama can hold his own in a fight, he tends to get kidnapped a lot.
    • Chapters 31 and 32 lampshade this. When the girls hear he was kidnapped, they only ask "Again?", and they give him the nickname "Princess Pinch".
  • The Drag-Along: He’d much rather just read a book or something than dish out punchlines all day.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: A Running Gag. Despite the Kazama Gang being actually infamous and named after him, nobody recognizes Kazama himself.
  • Genre Savvy/Wrong Genre Savvy: Zigzagged, depending on the occasion and/or joke.
  • 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.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Played for Laughs — this is how he was forced to join the Game Development Club (temp) in the first place.
  • Medium Awareness
  • Meta Guy: Kazama is fully aware that the situations he finds himself in are very abnormal.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Due to Roka's miswording, his mom thought he was in a relationship with Ataru. In the same chapter, she got further confused and thought he was dating Noe.
  • Nobody Calls Me Chicken: Despite wanting to have nothing to do with his club's crazy antics, he can be duped into joining the show this way.
  • No Indoor Voice: Due to his constant punchlines. It gets lampshaded too, with some characters telling him he's too loud.
  • Only Sane Man: Pity him.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: He's the most "normal" character in the series, and tends to draw the least attention amongst his peers.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He wears a cynical frown most of the time, though he can smile when he wants to.
  • Pet the Dog: After Noe's visit to his club ended with a series of misunderstandings that made her run off crying, he buys his little sister an expensive tub of ice cream.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: Comes with being the Only Sane Man, apparently.
  • Second Year Protagonist
  • Shonen Hair/Spiky Hair: And it’s actually sharp and jabs anyone who touches it. It seems to be naturally like that too, and is apparently a trait shared with both Noe and their mother. In fact, people mostly recognize him through this — one time he took a bath, he left his hair flat, and no one else is able to tell it's him.
  • Spirited Competitor: Despite his complaining, Kazama loves a good challenge.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Eventually develops something like this towards the Game Development Club (temp).
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ataru and the other members of the club.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Zigzagged; he seems to have no problem in fighting girls, but seems to have trouble picking fights with his club members, most probably because one of them has the political clout to legally kick his ass on her whim.

Roka Shibasaki

"Welcome to the Game Development Club."
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa

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.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: The reason why she left the real Game Development Club.
  • Badass Adorable: Her hidden Dark-type is to be feared.
  • Bag of Kidnapping: Her Weapon of Choice. It’s usually a One-Hit Kill and is her main attack, but she’s used it for kidnapping too.
  • Casting a Shadow: Her actual “element” is darkness. That is, putting a sack over people’s heads so they can’t see anything.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Does not like Kazama spending time with other girls.
  • Cute and Psycho: It shows through Tranquil Fury.
  • The Dreaded: Played for Laughs — everyone seems to know that she is the "secret boss of the school", and they are scared shitless of her.
  • Expressive Hair: Her Girlish Pigtails wiggle in response to her emotions.
  • Kawaiiko: Her frequent method of trying to convince people to do her favors.
  • Killer Rabbit: She looks cute, but only until she unleashes her Dark-type.
  • Moe: Invoked with her “Moe-Moe Attack”. It doesn’t work on Kazama at all.
  • No Girl Wants to Be Chased: Dislikes Hachi and his frequent overtures to her. There's a reason she considers Kenji the fourth member required to legitimize her club.
  • Older Than She Looks: She looks a lot younger than she really is, with her little sister looking a few years older than her.
  • 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.
  • Second Year Protagonist
  • Start My Own: Started the Game Development Club after a falling-out with the real deal, with some help from Chitose (in terms of manpower, as well as political and physical power).
  • Super-Deformed: Frequently drawn as this.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Not exactly supernatural but her brown eyes turn gold, whenever she unleashes her "dark" element.
  • Super Mode: Played with, whenever her "dark side' is unleashed her eyes turn gold, her voice deepens and reverberartes .
  • Super Speed: She seems to be the fastest member of the Game Development Club, outpacing Kazama with ease, and able to unleash her bag technique near-instantaneously.
  • Token Mini-Moe: She’s a parody of this kind of character. At 143cm, she is even smaller than Noe, the shortest of the named freshmen at 152cm.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Tsutsuji's (slight) tomboy.

Chitose Karasuyama

Voiced by: Chiwa Saito

Co-founder of the Game Development Club (temp) with her best friend Roka. She is also the student council president. And a delinquent.
  • Action Girl: Chitose is a ruthless brawler.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Chitose is extremely arrogant and authoritative, generally looking down on the boys and walking all over them.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The Student Council President, and an extremely powerful fighter.
  • Badass: She once threw a guy through a door, then proceeded to pick up said door and beat another guy with it.
  • Bad Boss: To the Student Council, as she is willing to use them for her own agenda, and has said that their possessions are hers. She picks on Ataru the most.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She maintains her status as Student Council President in spite of her delinquent behavior, abuse of the rest of the council, and her crude demeanor in general.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Roka back when they were children.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • 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.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She apparently did this to the Real Game Development Club when they started treating Roka unfairly (an image implies she attacked them with a shovel and buried them up to their necks).
  • The Gadfly: Among other things, she deliberately tried to feed a starved Kazama a string bean she dropped on the floor.
  • Guile Heroine/Manipulative Bitch: Zigzagged, depending on her intentions and viewpoint.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Her gross abuse of others is always painted in a humorous light.
  • Hidden Depths: She can actually cook pretty well, given that she had to for herself and her older sister, who can't cook half as decently as her.
  • High School Hustler: Because she's the Student Council President, she can bend the entire school to her will and get anything done in a jiffy.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: At 170cm she's the tallest girl in the Game Development Club (temp); only Kenji, at 175cm, is taller.
  • Japanese Delinquent: The reason she's even the Student Council President is apparently because she beat everyone else up.
  • 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.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: More than happy to bend school laws (and create some of her own, or at least a Loophole Abuse or two) to suit her needs as well as that of her club.
  • Second Year Protagonist
  • She's Got Legs: A lot of focus is drawn to her legs, and she is one of the few characters to have Zettai Ryouiki.
  • Student Council President: Inexplicably.
  • Super Strength: Was able to lift a gym locker without any difficulty.
  • 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.
  • Weapon of Choice: A handful of dirt.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Perhaps as a reference to how Purple Is Powerful. Chitose is the Student Council President, and one of the Game Club's stronger members.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears black thigh-high stockings.

Sakura Mizukami

"I'm Sakura Mizukami from class 1-D! I'm a Water Type!"
Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi

A seemingly tomboyish, carefree freshman and the youngest member of the Club.

Minami Oosawa

"You just stepped outside the boundary of what was acceptable in this school." (Lights stun gun)
Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu

Homeroom teacher of Class 2-D and "advisor" of the Game Development Club (temp).

Hachi Shiou

"Oh sorry! Apparently I like cramped, confined spaces."
Voiced by: Kouki Miyata

The other boy in the club who is quite infatuated with Roka. Rich and handsome, making him popular amongst girls. He stands in the corner, behind the bookcase.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Roka.
  • Bishie Sparkle: He sparkles like a diamond anytime he has something to say.
  • Bishōnen: Something of an Informed Attractiveness. His sparkles imply that he is supposed to be one of the better looking guys.
  • 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.
  • Light 'em Up: Because of his frequent tendency to emit a Bishie Sparkle, Hachi is implied to have a light-"elemental" motif.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He's always in a good mood. It is actually really creepy.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Where Chitose uses political clout, Shiou uses wealth to get by, such as ingratiating himself into the Kazama Gang (their leader's opinion be damned; it also helps that he and Ataru are pretty much alike).
  • The Team Wannabe: Considers the Kazama Gang his "friends" and follows them around a lot. Kazama refuses to acknowledge him.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: The idea of being subjected to Roka's bags excites him.

    The Real Game Development Club 

The Real Game Development Club

Tropes shared by the club in general:
  • 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.


"Curse you, fake Game Development Club!"
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

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.

Tsutsumi Inada

"In other words, you'd like to do that to the President's chest?"
Voiced by: Megumi Toyoguchi

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.


"D-do you think I'm still a guy after seeing this?"
Voiced by: Ryōko Shiraishi

A very pretty, extremely effeminate boy who gets put in skirts a lot.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Probably his only point in existence.
  • Butt Monkey: Like any other trap character, he gets subjected to wearing girly and cute outfits, such as a maid uniform and a fairy nurse.
  • Disguised in Drag: Any time Kazama is around. One time he even had to make a dash to the bathroom just to get into disguise when Kazama made eye contact with him in their clubroom.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Even sounds like one.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: Averted — Kazama apparently still thinks that he is a girl.


Voiced by: Takahiro Fujiwara

A giant and intimidating-looking boy. Actually one of the nicest and weakest characters in the entire series.
  • Butt Monkey: If Yamada shows up, chances are he's not about to have a nice day.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: And Kenji considers the sight of him in a girly dress the pinnacle of Fan Disservice.
  • 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..."
  • Gentle Giant: Tsutsumi describes him as a "timid pacifist".
  • Paper Tiger: He's the biggest, burliest guy, but he is incapable of hurting a fly.

    The Kazama Gang 

The Kazama Gang

Tropes shared by the Kazama Gang in general:

Kenji Kazama

See: The Game Deleopment Club (temp)

Ataru Kawahara

Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama

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.

Hiroshi Nagayama

Voiced by: Kenichirou Matsuda

Part of Kazama’s posse. He is very tall, but doesn’t stand out all that much.


Voiced by: Hiroki Gotou

The second half of Kazama’s posse. He is very short and fat.

    Other Characters 

Shawn Conecone

"Ah, such are youth. Both of you [Kenji and Takao], enjoy life while you're still young."
Voiced by: Joji Nakata

The very dandy second year classical literature teacher. Kazama genuinely looks up to and respects him. He’s also an archaeologist who fights crime.


Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

A soft-spoken girl in Kenji’s class. She is well-known for her cooking skills and is popular among the guys.
  • Adorkable: Her whole purpose is to react to Kazama's situations by being a big awkward mess.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The roots of her affection for Kenji.
  • 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.
  • The Cutie: Her shtick.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Last Name Basis: Like Takao, Funabori is only known by her last name.
  • Luminescent Blush: In spades.
  • 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.
  • Shrinking Violet: She has shades of this.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Too much attention can upset her and she can get frightened easily.
  • Supreme Chef
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Characters have even remarked on how good a wife she would be.

Noe Kazama

"Quit playing guessing games with my hair! You wanna know how much of a complex I have over how spiky it is?!"
Voiced by: Emiri Katou

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.
  • Cry Cute: Played for Laughs whenever she mistakes Takao's actions for bullying.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 9 of the anime spent two-thirds of its airtime devoted to her visit to her brother's club (and a hilariously bad first impression of Takao).
  • Determinator: Not as much as Kenji, but still she hates to lose as well.
  • An Ice Person: Her "elemental" motif as attributed to her by Roka, due to her love of ice cream.
  • It Runs in the Family: Her similarities to Kenji (and their mother) are lampshaded frequently. Specifically their hair, their punchlines, and their determination to win.
  • Japanese Sibling Terminology: She calls her brother “aniki”, but will call him "onii-chan" when upset.
  • Odd Friendship: With Sakura, a fellow first year. While she often expresses annoyance at the latter's attempts to treat Kenji like her older brother, they actually get along pretty well.
  • Only Sane Man: Like her brother.
  • Spiky Hair: How the club realized Kenji was her brother.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ice cream.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Takao-senpai?: After a string of misunderstandings and bad luck, Noe is terrified of Takao.

Tama Sakai

Voiced by: Kana Ueda

A pigtailed third-year and Chitose's predecessor as Student Council President.
  • Arc Villain: During the Former Student Council arc.
  • Brick Joke: Yes, Tama is the same "Tama-chan" whose money Kazama found.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Becomes more or less a recurring character who takes a shine to the Game Development Club (temp) after her defeat.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: As revenge for losing her position to Chitose, Tama targets the latter's club for disbandment, challenging them with a "steal the other team's cellphones" game.
  • Drop-In Character: Occasionally makes appearances after Kenji and Roka defeat her.
  • 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.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Actually wears this to counteract Roka's head-bag.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Officially the tallest female among the named cast, standing at 181 cm. For comparison, Chitose is only 11 centimeters shorter.
  • Hypocrite: Claims that her crusade to shut down the Game Development Club (temp) is to avenge the students "volunteered" by Chitose to build her entertainment booth during the School Festival. Except Tama cannot claim to moral superiority any more than Chitose herself can.
  • 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.
  • Student Council President: The previous one.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: At first, but she gets friendlier. Somewhat.


Voiced by: Eri Sendai

The former Student Council Secretary, with a nasty habit of vomiting a lot.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Her continuous vomiting can hardly be considered normal.
  • Butt Monkey: Shinsen is never treated as anything more than a minor inconvenience, and she gets zero respect from everyone, even her fellow former Student Council members.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: "Barfy"
  • Fiery Red Head: She gets upset easily and is very passionate despite her status as the local Butt Monkey.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: We don't get to see her hurl her guts out in the manga; we only hear the sound of it.
  • Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?: Frequently appears trying out all sorts of part-time careers, and, as of the Hashimoto arc, has appeared as far away as Hashimoto Island.


"Onii-chan will do his best to fight fair and square!"
Voiced by: Akira Ishida

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".
  • Cuteness Overload: Whenever he hears Sakura and Roka talking. He breaks down shortly after.
  • Eyes Always Shut‎: His defining character trait. Claimed to be caused by fatigue, and so that the teachers don't catch him sleeping in class.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he decided to open his eyes in his "battle" against Kazama. It's regrettably hilarious.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He opens his eyes when he's ready to be serious. Subverted in that it hardly improves anything.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: He notices that Sakura and Roka sound like seiyuus.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: ...Only to turn into a moe-struck idiot again shortly after hearing Roka's voice.
  • The One Guy: The only male member of the former Student Council.
  • Otaku: His source of power, as well as the cause for his pathetic loss in the minigame.

Tsutsuji Shibasaki

"And so, I'll have you quit the club once and for all!"

Roka's younger sister, a first-year at Higashifuge Academy, and herself a member of its game development club.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: How Roka treats her. Even Kenji agrees that Tsutsuji doesn't make for good little sister material.
  • Big Sister Worship: Adores Roka a lot. She doesn't repay the fangirling. Even Kenji correctly guesses that she's the kind of person who'd prepare Roka a bento with the words "I Love Onee-chan" on it.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Her introductory chapter has her spouting a rapid stream of retorts to Kenji's remarks, of all the available people in this series. The Kazama Gang even acknowledge it.
  • 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
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The (slight) tomboy to Roka's girly girl.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Wears one on the left side of her head, though she tries to emulate Roka by adding a smaller one on the right side.
  • Younger than She Looks: Not only does she look older than Roka, but she also looks older than a tenth-grader.


"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.
  • Cool Big Sis: What the entire school sees her as.
  • Gonk: Not in the usual sense, as her defining feature is a Cheshire Cat Grin and overly slanted eyes. Everyone refers to it as "scary".
  • In-Series Nickname: "Kusshi-senpai"
  • Moe: Invoked by her schoolmates, who claim she has a "cute" side to her, which makes her popular with guys. Even Kenji agrees.
  • Ms. Exposition: The only character in the series whose words aren't guaranteed to be 100% bullshit.
  • Petite Pride: According to her, she'd be ranked below a hundred in the school. Not that she minds, though.
  • Punch Catch: Does one in chapter 44, against a raging Tsutsuji. She reduced her to a crying wreck shortly afterwards, albeit unintentionally.
  • The Reliable One: Looks aside, she is famous for her dependable nature.
  • 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.)
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Wears one on the right side of her head.
