[[folder: Fujimura]]
!!Haru Fujimura

The main character. The [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine Tsukkomi in a world of Boke]].

* BadLiar: Possibly a side effect of his honor. Since he thinks that telling lies is the most unmanly thing a man could do, he's so bad at it that even Eriko and Shizuru can tell whenever he's lying.
-->'''Shizuru:''' You heard everything...? Our entire conversation...?
-->'''Fujimura:''' I-it's not like that! I didn't 'hear them' hear them, but rather they just passed through my ears.
* BrutalHonesty: Doesn't sugarcoat anything.
* ButtMonkey: It's tough being the straight man when your poor reputation causes you to have little friends. It's even tougher that the few people who do want to be your friend make it a living hell.
* CharacterDevelopment: He starts to enjoy school more as the manga progresses. [[spoiler: It eventually pays off.]]
** After [[spoiler: his accidental kiss with Shizuru]], he realizes that annoying as they may be to him, the girls still have delicate feelings, so he makes an effort to at least keep that in mind whenever he interacts with them.
* CelibateHero: Fujimura is much more focused on getting through school than dealing with romance. Unfortunately, none of the other girls care about that.
* DeadpanSnarker: When he's not being outraged by the antics of everyone else, although not as much as [[BeleagueredAssistant Himuro]].
* HeroWithBadPublicity: When Fujimura saved a girl from some bullies, all anyone focused on was the fact that he badly beat up some classmates.
* JapaneseDelinquent: In name only. While Fujimura does get into fights in the manga, he doesn't particularly enjoy it -- the beginning of the manga shows that he purely sees fighting as something to kill time with, and as stated above it really ticked him off when he was labeled as such by the school after saving a girl from being harassed by other delinquents. After he makes some friends, Fujimura is quite content with being an average student. [[spoiler: He even gets rid of the standard delinquent "bleached-blond hair" once he becomes elected as student council president.]]
* TheMasochismTango: Discussed. Fujimura gets mad at Himuro calling him a "virgin face" because only a masochistic person would like it. Himuro counters this by pointing out that the way he keeps acting like gentleman after Eriko and the others mess with him is the very definition of masochism. Fujimura realizes that he can't really disprove this.
* NotSoAboveItAll[=/=]NotSoDifferent:
** Sometimes he can be just as childish and petty as Shizuru or Himuro. Given the crap he has to put up with, it's understandable.
** His actions in the aftermath of [[spoiler: his forgotten first meeting with Eriko]] shows that there is some similarity between the two of them, much to his horror.
* ObliviousToLove: Played with. While he does notice his suitor's affections, he's very clueless to aspects of romance, which Himuro lampshades.
** In an obviously tender moment when Eri says [[spoiler:that his accidental kiss with Shizuru doesn't change her feelings for him]], he angrily says that she has no shame. [[spoiler: He is confused to as why Eri starts crying.]]
*** He then asks Subaru [[spoiler: if it was necessary for Eriko to cry about such a thing such as an accidental kiss.]] [[spoiler: Subaru pretty much has to spell it out to him that ''no'' girl would be okay with the person they love kissing someone else.]]
* OnlySaneMan: A given, considering the world this is set in.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: If Chapter 35 is anything to go by.
* StudentCouncilPresident: [[spoiler:Appointed in chapter 81, officially begins his tenure in chapter 86.]]
* StraightMan: Again, [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine a given]].
* {{Tsundere}}: His response to Eriko telling him how happy she is that he's with everyone at the beach can't be seen as anything other than this. It's immediately lampshaded by Subaru.

[[folder: His "Mates"]]
!! Tropes applying to more than one of them:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Unlike most examples, their problems are more with their behavior. Subaru is the school's idol, Eriko actually ranked #1 in the school's "Bishoujo rankings" due to her quiet and mysterious personality, and even Shizuru is reasonably attractive. However, Subaru often frightens Fujimura with some of her remarks, he openly laments that Eriko would be reasonably attractive if [[LoveableSexManiac she just kept her mouth shut]], and he has little patience for Shizuru's stupidity.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: All three frequently make baffling, and often times, disturbing leaps in logic. Tellingly, ''Shizuru'' seems to be the one that's most grounded in reality.
* IJustWantToBeYou: [[spoiler: Subaru and Eriko. Each thinks that the other is the ideal example of how a "cute girl" should act -- after she reformed, Subaru tried to change her image into that of a cute girl by using Eri as an example. In one chapter when Eri has to pretend to be Fujimura's cute girlfriend, she mimics Subaru to a T.]]
* MarryThemAll: Their end goal. [[spoiler: They manage to reach it thanks to Himuro.]]
* {{Polyamory}}: All of them have no problem with sharing Fujimura, despite his wishes for otherwise.
* UnwantedHarem: Fujimura has to deal with brushing off their romantic pursuits. [[spoiler: Somehow, even unbeknownst to ''him'', they become not-so-unwanted, complete with a fourth member in tow.]]

!!Eriko Usami
[[caption-width-right:246: ''"Fujimura is Eri's Bride."'']]
The main heroine and Fujimura's first girlfriend. While appearing as a stoic, mysterious person to those who don't know her, Eriko is evidently a LovableSexManiac who tries to interpret every situation with Fujimura as a perverted one and also has a disturbing obsession with beans. Eriko is...strange, to say the least, but she has good intentions and manages to convince him to come back to school.
* ACupAngst: She's hesitant to go into a swimsuit because of this.
* ClassRepresentative: But she's not in Fujimura's class.
* DogFoodDiet: To the point that when Fujimura gives her coffee in one chapter, she asks if it's ''Kikkoman'' or ''Yamasa''[[note]]Both are soy sauce brands.[[/note]]
* TheComicallySerious: Combined with her stoic expressions, Eriko's lack of a filter tends to shock Fujimura and Shizuru a lot.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Despite her aggressive advances on Fujimura, Chika's PrecociousCrush clearly makes her uncomfortable.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: [[spoiler: Met Fujimura for the first time approximately a year before the manga began.]]
* FlowerInHerHair
* HiddenDepths:
** Even though she acts like a massive pervert towards him, Eriko genuinely does care about Fujimura -- arguably more than any of the other girls. In the first chapter she says that the only reason why she's going so far to convince him to come back to school is because she wants to show him that school can be a fun place. [[spoiler: The flashback also shows that she was the only person that thought that Fujimura wasn't as bad as his reputation made him out to be, and being proven right on this is what originally made her fall for Fujimura.]]
** If the summer vacation arc is anything to go by, Eriko is a lot less weird than she normally acts around Fujimura and the others. [[spoiler: Her flashback to when she first met Fujimura provides further evidence to this.]]
** She really is quite knowledgeable about different types of beans.
** [[spoiler: She's also revealed to be scarily good at imitating people.]]
* LoveableSexManiac: Probably the most perverted character in the manga.
* LuminescentBlush: Whenever she twists Fujimura's words into something more suggestive (which is often)
* {{Nosebleed}}: Usually when she's thinking of a perverted situation (which is also often).
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: [[spoiler:The flashback to the past showed that prior to saving a girl from some bullies (which would give him a bad reputation), Fujimura had told a bystander to report it to the teacher. This bystander happened to be Eriko.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: A lot of her "elopement" with Fujimura involved her apologizing a lot for her inappropriate behavior, taking care not to disturb others on the train and generally not acting like herself. [[spoiler: It was eventually revealed that she had a very high fever.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Eri refers to Eri as Eri.
* TooKinkyToTorture:
** She all but directly stated that she'd ''enjoy'' it when Himuro threatened to tie her up.
** When Himuro jokes that her "Test of Courage" will probably make Fujimura and the others piss their pants, she just gets more excited.
* TwistingTheWords: Will undoubtedly construe anything Fujimura says as something perverted.

!!Shizuru Urabe
[[caption-width-right:245:''"Where am I?"'']]
Fujimura's third girlfriend. She's the student council president, but not really a good one --while she's far more benevolent to the rest of the student council than Himuro, she's still incompetent, childish, and makes more work for them (especially Himuro) because she's very clueless as to what her job entails. Despite this, she's the only admirer of Fujimura's that regularly acknowledges the absurdity of the antics of others, which would probably win her major points in Fujimura's book. Unfortunately, she still often ends up joining in the shenanigans that the others pull due to her ditzy nature.
* TheChewToy: Whenever something bad or humiliating happens in the manga, it's usually to her.
* TheDitz: Seems almost unable to function in normal life without Himuro's assistance.
* DumbassHasAPoint: Whenever Fujimura's not around, Shizuru is usually the one pointing out Eri and Subaru's lack of logic and/or sanity.
* FieryRedhead: A toned down one.
* HairDecoration: Wears a ribbon.
* TheKlutz: Part of why she ends up in humiliating situations
* LuminescentBlush: Frequently, thanks to Fujimura's presence and Eri and Subaru's shenanigans.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Constantly gets lost, whether if it's in understandable situations such as in the mall, or inexplicable ones, such as getting lost on her way home from school. It's to the point that Himuro puts a tracker on her uniform, with her consent.
** Later chapters show that it extends further than just losing her way: she once had to work part-time to pay her summer school fees because she lost the money her parents gave her.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Probably the funniest thing about Shizuru is that she's aware that Eri and Subaru think of weird, crazy and downright irrational schemes...yet she still joins in on them anyways. In fact it might just make her worse than the both of them.
* ShyFingerTwiddling: Does this quite a lot.
* StraightMan: Of course, not as much as Fujimura.
* StudentCouncilPresident
* WrongGenreSavvy: It's like the only time the manga tries to take itself seriously is when Shizuru tries to break the fourth wall.
** In Chapter 5 she tells Fujimura of her plan to make everyone see him as a good person. Fujimura points out that her voice was way too loud and now everyone knows that it's staged, making it useless.
** In Chapter 23 she starts making an inner monologue about how there's something special between her and Fujimura. [[RealityEnsues Since it's an inner monologue, nobody else hears her]] and Fujimura wonders why she's gone quiet all of a sudden. She angrily says that Fujimura should be able to hear it since he can hear background character's "inner voice" easily.

!!Subaru Yumizuka
The school's idol. Becomes Fujimura's second girlfriend, because according to her, she liked him ever since he rescued her in the past. While she's a sweet girl, she has some anger issues and makes some ominous sayings that there might be some sour in that personality of hers. It's eventually revealed that she was a feared delinquent that once bullied a girl Fujimura saved, meaning that when she said Fujimura rescued her, she ''really'' meant that he rescued her from going down a dark path.
* BeYourself: What Fujimura essentially tells her during their heart-to-heart at the summer festival.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: It takes a lot to get her mad but if you do...
* CompositeCharacter: Subaru is pretty much if you combine Shizuru and Eriko and brought them down from a level of exaggeration. This has the effect of highlighting Eri and Shizuru's traits; while she's definitely loony, she's not quite on the [[LoveableSexManiac level]] of Eri, but on the other hand while she can be rational, she won't ever step in and play the StraightMan role like Shizuru.
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: She's very envious of how Eri can be a "regular cute girl", while she, as a reformed delinquent, can only try to act like one.]]
* HairDecoration: Again, a ribbon.
* HeelFaceTurn
* HiddenDepths:
** She likes heroic movies over romantic ones, doesn't like wearing dresses and actually finds things such as manners and polite speech to be very bothersome.
** If what Aki had heard of her is anything to go by, it was already established that Subaru enjoyed doing school idol activities ''long'' before she decided to give up delinquency.
** On a more serious note, despite her outward confidence, Subaru actually has deep self-image and self-loathing issues.
* IHatePastMe: Played for Drama. While Fujimura's comment inspired her to become a cute girl, Subaru also created her school idol identity to get away from her delinquent past. The problem is that she becomes so obsessed with keeping up her new identity that she's willing to suppress some of her good qualities just because they don't match up with that of a regular "cute girl", making herself miserable in the process.
* JapaneseDelinquent: A former one.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: She's very honored to meet Aki, the original leader of her delinquent gang. So much that in her fit of fangirlism and reverence, Fujimura has to remind her that she's supposed to be pretending to be a school idol.
* LuminescentBlush
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Whenever she gets pissed, she slips into a KansaiRegionalAccent.
* RedBaron: "School Idol Yumizuka", "The Seventh Yakishini[[note]]nature spirit[[/note]]"
* RescueRomance: How she met Fujimura. Turns out that she was the bully, not the girl that Fujimura rescued.
* SchoolIdol
* YaoiFangirl

[[folder:Class Representatives and Student Council]]
!! Tropes shared by all of them:
* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Played with. Probably the ''only'' thing normal about Helmet and Inui is how they act as members of the student council[[note]]While patrolling the city is abnormal for a student council, the school rules actually encourage them to do so.[[/note]]. However, Himuro clearly operates on her own levels of protocols (and morals).
* ClassRepresentative: No duh.
* CloudCuckoolander: It's established as early as Chapter 4 that Helmet, Eriko and Inui aren't the only weirdos in the council. No wonder why Himuro feels that she's SurroundedByIdiots.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: Both Helmet and Inui become Himuro's closest subordinates once she becomes Prime Minister]]
* LargeHam: Helmet and Inui are arguably the hammiest characters in the manga.
* NoIndoorVoice: Especially Inui. 3/4 of her dialogue is done with her yelling.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The only person who actually does Student Council work is Himuro.


The male class representative in Fujimura's class. Always walks around in a horned helmet.

* EyesAlwaysShut: Is drawn like this.
* {{Fetish}}: Loves wearing different helmets, the girl that he claims to like is one who wears spiked wristguards and a helmet, admits to Fujimura that he has no interests in porn where the girls aren't wearing helmets...yeah, it's definitely this.
* GayOption: So he says.
* TheMatchmaker: He was apparently seen as a reliable resource for relationship advice back in middle school. Even he is unsure of how this development came to be.
* MeaningfulName: When he changed into a ninja costume, Subaru calls him Kabuto. As you can guess, Kabuto is another word for helmet, more specifically the type of helmet that samurais wore.
* NeverBareheaded: [[spoiler: Even when he changed into casual wear that one time, he's wearing a baseball cap.]]
* NiceHat: Nice ''helmet'', of all things.
* NoNameGiven: The mangaka even said he couldn't bother thinking up a name for him.
* OutdatedOutfit: He always wears a spiked shoulder pad and an old horned helmet for unexplained reasons.
** Subverted in one chapter when he changes into more normal samurai armor... [[DoubleSubverted oh, wait.]]
** And also subverted at the T-800 inn where he changes into a ninja outfit...wait a sec.
** [[spoiler: Finally subverted for real when he's spotted in casual summer wear in Chapter 65.]]
* TheReveal: A lot of intrigue was built up to as what he looked like without his helmet on ever since he had a ''censor mosaic'' over his hair when Fujimura walked in on him at the bath. [[spoiler: Then in Chapter 65 he's seen in normal clothes for once, and while he's wearing a baseball cap you can see that his hair is just a regular buzzcut.]]

!!Claudia Chiiko Inui
[[caption-width-right:245:''"I daresay! Big breasts are love!"'']]
The female class representative in Fujimura's class.

* ADayInTheLimelight: Chapter 85 is even called A date with Chiiko.
* BoobsOfSteel: The strongest character in the series, and definitely the bustiest.
* ButNotTooForeign: A half-British, half-Japanese girl.
* BuxomIsBetter: See her quote.
* {{Engrish}}: Whenever she speaks English it's either used in the wrong context or just doesn't make any sense. Lampshaded by Fujimura.
--->'''Fujimura:''' You half-Japanese only know how to use English in useless places, dammit.
* {{Fauxreigner}}: Arguably knows even less English than her classmates, despite being born and raised in England. No wonder why her family moved back to Japan.
* FriendToAllChildren: She spends most of her time outside of school playing with the neighborhood kids, which in turn causes them to look up to her.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Unambiguously the nicest character in the series.
* HypocriticalHumor: Calls people "yankees" and "gaijins", despite being half-Japanese and living in England for most of her life.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In Chapter 76,[[spoiler: it's revealed that she's become the leader of Subaru's old gang. However, it's later subverted; Inui didn't become leader by beating them up, but by convincing them to change their ways.]]
* PhenotypeStereotype: Has blonde hair and blue eyes.
* SpeaksInShoutOuts: Of the "learnt Japanese from watching television" variety. Nearly of her Japanese dialogue sounds like if it's cribbed from anime or videogames. In defense, it is heavily implied that she learned most of her Japanese from Helmet, who is a major provider for a lot of the anime and videogame shout-outs in the series.
-->'''Fujimura:''' '''''OI, WHO THE HELL TAUGHT THIS GIRL JAPANESE!''''' ''I can't understand her at all!''
-->'''Helmet:''' Don't think, just feel.

!!Urabe Shizuru
See the "Mates" folder for more info.

!!Himuro Akira
[[caption-width-right:246:''"President...could you please learn something called competence?"'']]

The student council vice-president. She often acts as Shizuru's caretaker, despite being much younger than the latter. Even so, at times it's implied that she might be possibly crazier than Shizuru, with her often making very ominous threats and her penchant to drop anyone who displeases her in council meetings through a trapdoor below where they sit. And that's not even mentioning the numerous traps she's installed around the entire city.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: [[spoiler: Directly asks Fujimura if he doesn't have any romantic feelings for Shizuru. Fujimura doesn't have a response]].
* BeleagueredAssistant: Shizuru and the student council keep her very busy, to be frank.
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Himuro rags on Shizuru ''a lot'' for her incompetence as the Student Council President, but [[spoiler: the fact that she was still willing to be friends with her after the latter left the student council]] shows that when it's said and done, she does consider Shizuru her friend.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: To Shizuru.
* CreepyChild: Granted, she puts up with her [[ButtMonkey senior]] [[TheDitz Shizuru]], but jokingly trying to give someone a lobotomy with a screwdriver is pretty dark.
* DeadpanSnarker: Whenever Fujimura can't be around to snark, Himuro picks up the slack.
* DeathGlare: Gives some rather chilling ones throughout the manga.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Sends people down trap doors for seemingly small reasons.
-->'''Himuro:''' His face pissed me off.
* EnfanteTerrible[=/=]KidsAreCruel: By her father's words and her own admission, she's ''mellowed out'' from when she was younger. Fujimura and the reader can only shudder at the thought of what she used to be.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Himuro has no problems with treating Shizuru like a guinea pig, dropping people down trap doors for small offenses and being mean to others with little provocation. However, when Chika asks her for Fujimura's personal information just so she can get Eriko to "break up" with him, she's very reluctant in doing so.
* IronLady: [[spoiler: In the distant finale, it's revealed that she ''replaced the traditional parliamentary system'' and became president of Japan.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: While she may be SurroundedByIdiots, Himuro can be incredibly petty and often downright cruel at times.
* KarmaHoudini: Himuro's more disproportionately cruel moments are never met with any comeuppance because everyone (including Fujimura) is too terrified of her to do anything about it.
* KickTheDog: After rescuing Fujimura and Shizuru from some thugs she drops Shizuru down a trap door once she finds out that she wasted her money on juice. Then she kicks Shizuru back down the hole when she manages to somehow climb back up.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Despite being wise beyond her years, Himuro's age shows whenever she sometimes take part in the insanity.
** When she asked Shizuru how it felt to kiss somebody, she was writing down notes. It's actually kind of adorable.
* PetTheDog: Himuro spends a lot of her appearances being a jerk to people (usually Shizuru), but she's capable of doing enough nice things that would probably bump her up to JerkWithAHeartOfGold status. Despite berating Shizuru all the time she was very supportive of Shizuru's attempt to become Fujimura's girlfriend. She also takes great pleasure in messing with Fujimura's head, but also goes out of her way to improve his reputation.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's shown to be a pretty fair arbiter for both Fujimura and the harem: while she understands how Fujimura feels, she also sympathizes with the harem in that Fujimura can't keep up this polygamous relationship thing forever and it's only fair to them that he picks one of them soon.
* SarcasticDevotee: Doesn't even hide how little faith she has in Shizuru.
* ShipTease: Subtly implied in some chapters that she may have a thing for Fujimura. [[spoiler: Outright confirmed at the summer festival.]]
** [[spoiler: Further made clear in the distant finale, when she makes polygamy legal as president of Japan and the other girls note that Himuro also chose Fujimura to be her husband.]]
* StoicSpectacles
* TeenGenius
* TrapMaster: Managed to install a series of traps throughout the entire town.
** TrapDoor: WeaponOfChoice
* WhatIsThisFeeling: [[spoiler: Openly wonders this after holding Fujimura's hand while watching fireworks at the summer festival.]]

[[folder: Other]]

A little girl with a crush on Eriko, who turns out to be her cousin.

* BrattyHalfPint
* ChildProdigy: According to Eriko, she's renowned in IT and is studying at an American university.
* FlowerInHerHair
* HopelessSuitor: To Eriko.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter:
** Believes that Eriko is an "innocent young maiden". She [[CovertPervert couldn't be]] [[LoveableSexManiac any more wrong]].
** She also considers Himuro as a good mentor to learn from. Even Himuro was surprised.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Apparently Eriko isn't the only person who twists people's words into something perverted and doesn't listen to people.
** And it's implied that their grandmother is the ''exact'' same way.
* KissingCousins: What she wants. Unfortunaftely for her, Eri has a one track mind.
* ShadowArchetype: To Eriko; both of them hear [[LoveableSexManiac what they want to hear]] from people, don't listen to when people are telling them otherwise and have an unhealthy devotion to one person. Chika doesn't listen to ''anyone'' to the point where even Eri finds her to be a nuisance, and while Eri knows her boundaries, Chika takes her devotion to a level where she does things that even Himuro is uncomfortable with.
* StalkerWithACrush: She unashamedly admits to the gang that she stalks her own cousin...then they find out that she isn't even aware what the word "stalking" ''means''. She originally thought that the "king" in the word "stalking" actually referred to the royalty position...yes, it's as weird as it sounds.
* TokenMiniMoe

!!Aki Fujimura

Fujimura's older sister.

* BerserkButton: Boys having impure relationships with girls, as stated by herself. [[spoiler: Thus, when she found out about Fujimura's situation, she was '''''not''''' pleased.]]
* TheComicallySerious
* CoolBigSis: Where she lacks in sanity, she makes up for it in kindness.
* FailedASpotCheck: The first time she meets Shizuru and Himuro, they appear to be trying to break into her family's house. She then gives a character introduction to them, despite them being a case study on how ''not'' to make a good first impression to someone.
* HiddenDepths: If you met her in the street, would the first thought that comes to your head be that she works at a videogame company?
* InSeriesNickname: Called "Fuji-nee", for obvious reasons.
* LiteralMinded: And very stubborn too. As stated by Fujimura:
---> ''Once, when she was small, big sis tripped over and scraped her knee, and our parents said "Aki, you're the world's strongest child, so don't cry okay?". Then she said "I'm going to find someone stronger than me" and left the house...''
* PoorCommunicationKills: Jumps to the conclusion that Fujimura and Shizuru had sex on their summer vacation trip and questions Shizuru if they used contraception. Shizuru makes it even worse by saying "We didn't do anything like that![[note]]Shizuru really meant that they didn't do anything that would require contraception[[/note]]". [[HilarityEnsues Aki then thinks that Shizuru came to her house for other reasons...]]
** [[spoiler: When she recalls all the things that she heard about Subaru when she was still a delinquent, she says she wants to test her greatness, saying "Come at me with all you have".]] [[spoiler: She was talking about fighting her in a videogame.]]
* RedBaron[=/=]IHaveManyNames: [[spoiler: "Aki The Harvester", "Aki Saburou the Lone Ranger", "Aki the Evil Spirit", "The Invulnerable Outlaw", "Stunner Aki-chan"...as Fujimura points out, a lot of these aren't very good delinquent nicknames.]]
* RetiredBadass: [[spoiler: see below]]
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: The gang that Subaru had controlled in middle school was originally started by Aki. And it had spanned ''six'' previous generations of students before Subaru became the leader. Not even Fujimura was aware of this.]]
* SandInMyEyes: Tries to pass off tears of joy [[spoiler:over Fujimura's relationship technically not being impure]] as "saliva running out of her eyes". Everyone is clearly disgusted.
* ShadowArchetype: To Subaru. [[spoiler: In the true Jungian tradition, Aki represents both Subaru's flaws (She was an even greater delinquent than Subaru and feared to the point where her name was known across Japan) and her potential to be a better person, as Aki managed to reform her delinquent ways, cares deeply for her friends and family and managed to live her life the way she wanted to -- which is everything that Subaru wishes to be.]]
* TranquilFury: [[spoiler: When she found out about Fujimura's "triple-timing".]]


Fujimura's best friend from middle school, who comes to visit during summer vacation.

* {{Foil}}: To Fujimura without a doubt. Tanaka's all for romantic pursuits but it took him three years to get a girlfriend. Meanwhile Fujimura makes absolutely no effort to look for romance, yet has to deal with three people considering themselves his girlfriend. To further drive the point home, his hairstyle is the same as Fujimura's only colored black.
* OddFriendship: He's also good friends with Helmet. Though, the more he spends time with Fujimura and the gang, it's not really all that odd why he'd be friends with him.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Met his girlfriend [[spoiler: in Helmet's research organization.]]
