Nikai dokurou" Hey, It's That Voice!:
Keima may have previously fangasmed over mobile suits... Or maybe have been the subject of various comic abuse outside of his galge obsession...
There's just no way that my athletic classmate/first capture target can be this cute! ( Nyaa~n!)
It is quite surprising that some VA's here (both Japanese and English VA's at that) have also voiced characters from :
Infinite Stratos In addition, it seems Chihiro previously worked for Jun at the Maid Latte Cafe. Before that, she was a Genki Girl with Cute Little Fangs, who was a part of one of the most Badass Crews to ever exist in Anime.
Anyways, was Haqua an X-Rounder before?
Kusonoki was an Ace Pilot in a Knightmare Frame.
Nikaido-sensei was a badass female cyborg cop.
"Yuki-Onna No Yamato / Snow Lady of the Mountain", you say? I'd say Mari is " The Princess of The True Ancestors"... or maybe Phantasmoon...
Mio was previously a magical girl with pink hair, who then retired to become an idol singer-slash-build fighter.
By the way, Konoka Konoe braided her hair and gained a pair of glasses, as she became head of the Library Committee, even in the English Dub.
Seems Ryou's Dumb Blonde behavior is just a front. He could be an Ax-Crazy Jerkass Vagan Pilot.
And surprisingly, Youkkun was a magical girl in search of cards...

Tenri was a Britannian princess while Diana was a student council president who liked messing with people for fun.
Tsukiyo was previously a Token Mini-Moe Ten-year-old Nun. She was also quite lethargic back then, but that did not stop her from driving a Panzer IV tank like a badass.
Yui meanwhile, was a a pink-haired Bridge Bunny, a Filipina Brainy Brunette-turned-Vampire, AND a seven-year-old Enfante Terrible.
And it seems Mileina Vashti migrated to Maijima after the ELS Conflict to work as a district chief with a box cutter.

Genre Savvy, the author pushing Chihiro only made it more likely.
Classical Mythology combined with one of Apollo's comments about how she ended up in Kanon because she's the god of music. Of the candidates, who fits the God of Travel most? Subverted in the case of Tsukiyo; while
Classical Mythology would have put Diana, goddess of hunting, poetry, and the moon in her, she instead got Vulcan since Diana was already introduced as the one inside Tenri. No Export for You: The light novels. The first one had two exclusive capture targets in Tooru Amami and Asami Yoshino, while the second had Shino Akuragawa and Aoba Fuse.

The Wiki Rule: Right here...
