Evil Chef: One time, when Miu kept draggin the rest of the crew to the café, where Nobue worked part time and repeatedly extorted fancy ice cream from her, she spiked Miu's ice cream with hot sauce. This escalated to a big food fight between Mio and Nobue, which got Nobue fired and not only without pay for the days she worked there, but even with debts to the café for cleaning and damages.
Japanese Pronouns: She frequently refers to Miu using "temé!", a deeply impolite form of "you" literally meaning "you bastard" (because Miu is a pain in her ass very, very often)!
Unlimited Wardrobe: To a deranged degree, including a santa costume and 3 matching reindeer outfits, ninja gi's, obscure basket-hats and nurses outfits, as well as an extensive amount of Kawaiiko every-day clothes.
Cat Girl: Ashamed of her odd hair, she invests in a cute hat with cat-ears attached. Bizarrely, she spontaneously sprouts a cat tail as well. Nobue, quite taken with her new look, insists she add a little "Nyah" (meow!) to the end of every sentence....
Originally from Cornwall, England, Ana is one of Matsuri's classmates. She loves Japanese culture, but tries to disguise this fact in front of her peers even though her family has lived in Japan for a while and, as a result, don't speak English as much anymore.Ana first appears in Episode 2 (anime; chapter 11 in the manga)
Big Fancy House: Ana's house is huge by Japanese comparison, and actually has a proper lawn (as well as a fancy gate-buzzer), which is a rarity reserved for only the very wealthy.
Fauxreigner: Zig-zagged: Although she IS an foreigner (British), she lived in Japan since a young age and spoke even at home only Japanese, resulting in her almost entirely forgetting her own mother tongue. She tried to feign ignorance of Japanese language and customs and proficiency in the English language, but failed at both tasks (the Japanese language and culture were too deeply ingrained in her for that, her Japanese classmates speak English better than her and she has a better command of the Japanese language than her native Japanese classmates have). That bothers and embarrasses her very much, since she wants to keep her cultural identity and connection with her country of birth and even tries to re-learn English with her friend Matsuri's help.
Gratuitous English: Having lived in Japan for so long has seriously impaired her ability to speak her native tongue, so when she actually does try to speak English, it comes out like this.
Keigo: Ironically, Ana speaks in a much more formal tone of Japanese than the rest of the girls, especially Nobue....
Meaningful Name: In the dictionary episode, Ana is furious when Miu spells her name in kanji to mean "hole", "bone", and "cave", which becomes a Running Gag.
