[[folder:Fujisaki Girls Academy Student Council]]
!!Kurahashi Riko
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RieKugimiya (Drama CD) and Creator/ManamiNumakura (Anime)

A second-year student at Fujisaki Girls Academy. Her tomboyish and rebellious personality made her one of the most popular students in the school, and her [[OneOfTheBoys hanging out with boys in elementary school]] started rumors that she has had a very successful love life. After a chance meeting where she caught Maki kissing a body pillow in the Student Council office, she gets conscripted as the Council President's Assistant, and provides Maki with "expert opinions" for her Love Research. This is all despite the fact that she has never dated a single boy.
* BerserkButton:
** Calling her a boy or manly.
** Insulting her friends.
* BookDumb: How she got into Fujisaki is a bit of a mystery, and {{lampshaded}} as such.
* CanNotSpitItOut: To her crushes. It's the only other reason she wasn't recognized by the boys - she never makes the first move herself. [[spoiler:Taken to an extreme when she falls for Nagi and refuses to admit it until she tells her friends in chapter 10 of volume 7.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Nagi seems to have had an one sided crush on her when they were kids, [[spoiler: later she gets a crush on him when she meets him again]].
* ClingyJealousGirl: Anytime a girl shows interest in Nagi or Nagi complements a girl that isn't her, she freaks out.
* CuteLittleFangs
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Our first treatment started when she aggressively saved two girls from an incoming football kicked by two schoolboys. The result: the girls look up (with [[HeartSymbol heart-shaped]] [[WingdingEyes eyes]], people!) to her like a manly prince.
* GenkiGirl
* HairDecorations: She always has her hair tied up with these, and is rarely seen wearing the same hair tie two days in a row. [[RunningGag She's constantly being told to take them off by the school guidance councilor, only to put them back on the moment she's alone]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Becomes one with Maki.
* InSeriesNickname: "The Wild One". Suzu quite liberally shortens this to "Waki".[[note]]'''''Wa'''irodu no '''Ki'''mi''->'''Waki'''. ''Waki'' is also Japanese for "Wine".[[/note]]
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Claims to have extensive experience with guys and dating, but actually doesn't.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Her masculine traits (read: OneOfTheBoys) scares the other boys away from her.
* NormalFishInATinyPond: A non-power example: she's able to give the rest of the student council decent relationship advice simply because [[CloudCuckooLander their views on romance are so weird]] that it only takes a [[OnlySaneMan normal person's]] common sense to correct them, despite the fact that she hasn't ever been involved with a guy.
* NotSoDifferent: She has romantic fantasies [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel straight from the pages of a shoujo manga]] just like the other girls, but hers are much more subdued than Maki's or Eno's.
* OneOfTheBoys: Since [[FemininityFailure she fails at femininity]] up to the present day, none of the boys recognized her as a girl.
* OnlySaneMan: She's the one that keeps Maki in line.
* PaperFanOfDoom: Receives one from Suzune.
* ShipTease: From Volume 5 onward, about where the anime ended, she gets a lot of ship tease with [[spoiler:Nagi]].
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She only really fell for [[spoiler:Nagi]] when he covered for her.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Concerning her non-existent love life. [[spoiler:When her friends ask if she likes Nagi, she denies it saying she just thinks about him all the time and he sometimes makes her heart beat faster, which they lampshade]]
* TastesLikeDiabetes: In-universe. After she learns her EmbarrassingNickname, she counters it by acting ridiculously cute and imitating Maki, driving everyone nuts. Sayori finds it especially painful.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Despite being pretty masculine she enjoys dressing up and has some very feminine ideals on dating.
* UrbanLegendLoveLife: Riko tried to correct her first witness of Natsuo's romantic rehearsal early on, which led Natsuo to think that Riko used to have boyfriends in the past. Riko subtly tried to deny such a conlusion, but Natsuo put so much faith in her that she, in fear of disappointing Natsuo, continued lying about her status. Ever since, she became Natsuo's reluctant love life advisor, who then spread the word to people like Suzune, much to Riko's chagrin.

!!Maki Natsuo
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuiHorie (Drama CD) and Creator/ChinatsuAkasaki (Anime)

A second-year student at Fujisaki Girls Academy, and an unbelievably competent StudentCouncilPresident, who is capable of taking up all the responsibilities of the entire Student Council by herself. However, her cool, competent demeanor quickly disappears when you realize that she's a ''huge'' CloudCuckooLander that is obsessed with an [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel idealistic understanding of romance]]. She even has a body pillow with a caricature of her "ideal love interest" on it named "Huggy" (Dakkii in Japanese), which she uses to practice kissing.
* AcademicAthlete: Implied.
* TheAce: She's a top-notch student at The Fujisaki Girls' Academy who has some incredibly good grades, charismatic people skills with the teachers and efficient human resource managing. Riko mentions that Maki is so impressive that she could do all of this at once at no penalty to her overall performance - in Riko's words, "a super middle schooler".
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Her dad runs a lingerie company, and appeared in a commercial extolling various womens' undergarments in song. She's ''very'' sensitive about it.
* AttractiveBentGender: She can pull off a fairly convincing {{Bifauxnen}}, but "Makio" just ends up creeping everyone out more than anything.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Between her and [[spoiler:Yan]].
* BigFancyHouse
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She pulls some really InsaneTrollLogic out of nowhere in what should be ideal circumstances in a romantic encounter. This causes her otherwise normal behavior to turn eccentric, and turns off at least two of the guys at the cram school as a result.
* DudeMagnet: Nearly every boy has shown attraction to her.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Due to her intelligence, kindness and beauty. She gains the same reaction Riko gets from their fellow schoolmates.
* FirstNameBasis: When a boy uses her first name without honorifics (thinking it was her last name) she completely panics, acting like he stole her SacredFirstKiss, and falls into a HeroicBSOD. She had, [[LoveFreak of course]], envisioned some insane romantic scenario in which a guy she'd been dating for months would finally use her first name without honorifics.
* GirlyGirl: She makes {{girly run}}s, is [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel hopelessly romantic]] and fits the bill of [[YamatoNadeshiko a graceful young lady]] (that is, until InsaneTrollLogic kicks in...).
* GirlyRun
* HairColorDissonance: Appears to have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]], but characters describe it as [[RavenHairIvorySkin gorgeously black]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Becomes one with Riko.
* HypercompetentSidekick: She was this to Yuiko, until Yuiko promptly resigned in disgust.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Prior to meeting Riko, she was largely self-reliant. Then when Riko greets her friend Mika in the hallway, Maki has a sad look on her face at seeing how friendly the two girls are. Later on, [[spoiler:after she finds out that Riko lied about being an expert on love, she was more distressed at the fact that Riko wanted to quit the student council and probably not spend any more time with her, than the fact that she lied. At least until the latter gave a heartfelt apology, stated she didn't want to quit, and declared them to be best friends.]]
* InSeriesNickname: "Fuji's Princess"
* InsaneTrollLogic: Owing to her CloudCuckooLander status, Maki's wacky conclusions in supposedly perfect courting situations lead to some very fatal errors, such as exaggerating the melodrama of a young relationship situation between two lovers, [[AmusingInjuries dislocating Riko's fingers]] in a practice of [[IntertwinedFingers holding hands]], simulating CrashIntoHello at break-neck speed, and improving one's attractiveness by exposing one's nape rather than making an ExpositoryHairstyleChange.
* LonelyRichKid: Although she doesn't flaunt her riches, her father is a successful, if somewhat embarrassing, businessman, and kept her away from boys her age. This may help explain why Maki has such weird ideas about guys in the first place, particularly after her sister accidentally reads some of her love lab notes and convinces him to loosen his grip on her upbringing a little, lest some smooth talking playboy exploits her naiveness.
* LongHairIsFeminine: It's a part of her GirlyGirl charm.
* LoveFreak: To a fault by way of InsaneTrollLogic.
* {{Ojou}}
* ParodySue: As a CloudCuckooLander [[TheAce Ace Student]], she's overly competent in all academic issues, but is exaggeratedly terrible at her love life.
* SacredFirstKiss: A common gag is Yan stealing her "first times" on many occasions, much to her chagrin, since her simulated romantic scenarios are ruined every time. These include [[spoiler:the first time she was called by her first name, the first time she was in picture with a boy, the first time she was saved from an accident, etc]].
* StopCopyingMe: Riko tries to copy her actions to be more "girly" upon learning her nickname ("The Wild One"), and everyone is either [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness disturbed by her change in character]], [[TastesLikeDiabetes or completely disgusted]]. Maki counters by dressing as [[AttractiveBentGender Makio]], something Riko would never willingly do.
* StudentCouncilPresident: In effect, to the extent that most students ''think'' she's the president, but technically she's the vice-president.
* SweetPollyOliver: Riko jokes that it'd be easier to study if a hot guy was encouraging her...so Maki dresses up as one.
* TerribleArtist: Her body pillow has a crude caricature of a male student on it, in stark contrast to the more conventional {{Bishounen}} or {{Hunk}}. For the sake of RuleOfFunny, her romance fantasies involve meeting a living version of her absurd artwork.
** She's honestly confused and can't understand why the art teacher gave her a "D" for her drawings (of student council members).
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: She brings up things like MeetCute moments, only to screw 'em up with InsaneTrollLogic.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkenoWatanabe (Drama CD) and TaichiYou (Anime)

A [[{{Meganekko}} bespectacled]] third-year student at Fujisaki Girls Academy, former Student Council Treasurer, and Yuiko's [[HeterosexualLifePartner lifelong friend]]. She's well-known for being a miser who has a [[MoneyFetish weird fascination with money]], and has openly stated that she [[MiserAdvisor only became treasurer so she could handle the funds distributed to the various clubs]].

* BlindWithoutEm: She actually tripped on her own feet after the girls take her glasses away briefly to change her look for a date.

* {{Greed}}: In the form of MoneyFetish, no less.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: As much of a JerkAss she can be at times, she does have moments where she's nice and does things without an ulterior motive, such as when Maki's love lab notes were accidentally distributed at a student council meeting. Sayo claims that said notes were research for a question given to them anonymously by a student, and they all accept that excuse, since they're unaware of Maki's CloudCuckooLander tendencies.
* {{Meganekko}}
* MistakenForCheating: When she went to return Haru's uniform for Yuiko who got sick, her boyfriend just happened to see it.
* MoneyFetish: She openly admits to Yuiko that it's money she likes, not the accounting work that comes with the treasurer position and worse, obsessed with controlling the fundings of people she can manipulate.

[[folder:Minami Middle School’s Student]]

!!Nagino Satoshi
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakahiroMizushima
Riko's childhood friend and former football teammate. He goes to the same cram school as Yan and Mika.
* {{Adorkable}}: A lot of girls think so because of his kind personality and his tendency to get flustered a lot.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Minor example between him and Riko. While they do argue a lot, it's more like good natured ribbing between friends.

* BookDumb: On par with Riko.
* ChickMagnet: Riko, Mika and two unnamed girls that find him attractive.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Satoshi and Riko were somewhat close when they were younger, and later on he admits to Maki that he did have a crush on Riko. Whether that was a lie to cover for Riko, or a truth, considering he did run away after hearing Riko rejected him, is uncertain.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Like Maki, he's this to Haru.
