White Lily Society

One of two societies in Vincennes vying for control of the Student Council. They are progressives that support the school's reformation movement, which would allow for the school to accept male students and become coed in order to survive for future generations. They wholly support Masaya's stay in their school, and as a result, he decides to become one of their affiliates early on.

    Masaya Okonogi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masaya_okonogi.jpg

The Protagonist of the story. Thanks to a string of bad luck with the Yakuza and his father's debts catching up to him, he is forced to flee his old apartment and abandon his old life of odd jobs and his old school. Thanks to a chance encounter with a certain Vincennes Academy student, he manages to turn his fortunes around by ending up in the exclusive all-girls school as its first male student.

His bestowed title in Vincennes is "Tentateur Serpent" (Seductive Snake).

  • Accidental Pervert: Simply trying to knock someone’s arm away, Masaya accidentally touches her breasts instead. The already tense situation immediately deteriorates. And it goes From Bad to Worse once he's actually in Vincennes, with this happening to him about every other time.
  • The Ace: Thanks to various work experiences, Masaya knows how to do basically everything. He’s also highly physically fit and has great eyesight.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Masaya is presented as a low-grade pervert. He doesn’t do anything to girls or try to peep on them, but he has a habit of rather openly checking them out. For the most part, it’s not held against him by his friends given how open he is about it
  • Angst? What Angst?: In-Universe, it’s noted that Masaya is rather casual about his crappy backstory.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He may be one of the nicest people in the story, but don't try to confront him or threaten a loved one in front of him, he will get pissed off and fight back.
  • Blithe Spirit: Masaya blows into Vincennes and starts changing everything.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Masaya can’t handle alcohol at all. It’s actually not played for laughs, though, even though he feels drunk after a single cup of wine.
  • Chick Magnet: It’s implied that Masaya is quite popular with girls normally. However, it’s canceled out by being in an all girls school where no one wants him. Still, the nickname of Tentateur (seductive) Serpent remains until Konomi publicly announces the title is undeserved. That said, not all of the girls who like him are actually heroines in the original game, including even Ruriko.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Played with. Masaya looks completely oblivious at first, but then admits that he just doesn’t want to deal with it right now. However, he does seem genuinely unaware as to WHY he’s popular or how his words or actions affect others.
  • Genre Savvy: After Masaya regains his memory he starts avoiding events like swimming in the lake because he knows who Rise is and doesn’t want her to learn who he is without him telling her directly.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Masaya is asked a couple of times if he’s a martial artist, but he’s just picked up some tricks thanks to his deadbeat dad always getting him in trouble.
  • Meaningful Name: The story likes to compare Masaya to Jesus. Masaya? Messiah.
  • Messianic Archetype: He is often compared to Jesus himself. In fact, most of the common route has him endure hardship after hardship, and he manages to stay true to his own beliefs while not keeping any grudges against those who have wronged him, instead trying to get to know them better and make them change their stances on life.
  • Naked People Are Funny: He gets this treatment in Ruriko's route, whom the latter compares to the Statue of David.
  • Nice Guy: One reason why many of the Vincennes girls, even the ones hostile to him, eventually warm up, and in some cases, get a crush on or eventually fall in love with him, is due to how kind and pleasant he turns out to be, shattering and questioning their belief that All Men Are Perverts.
  • Oblivious to Love: Masaya can’t seem to grasp why Chiho and Rise might be awkward around each other. After briefly thinking that Konomi might like him since she was so determined to get his invitation to keep it away from Ritsuko, he then goes back to assuming she hates him when she’s actually started crushing on him and just hasn’t realized it.
  • Oblivious Guilt Slinging: Everyone compliments Masaya after he beats the crap out of a voyeur but he’s just uncomfortable because he went overboard.
  • The One Guy: He's the only guy in the White Lily Society, and, by extension, the entire school. Justified, since he's meant to be a test run for possible coed integration that half the school's board wants.
  • Penny Among Diamonds: For the first 3 chapters, he's pretty much the only working-class student in Vincennes, and its only thanks to Rise that he is able to even stay there. Thanks to the events of Chapter 3, however, he is able to get his winning lottery ticket back, and by the 4th chapter, is already as rich as some of the other students.
  • Rags to Riches: Goes from living in a low-end apartment working dead-end jobs and being homeless for a day, to winning millions of yen in the lottery and studying in one of the most exclusive schools in the country.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Masaya may not get the significance of individual events, but he does realize that the girls like him. He’s just trying to put off dealing with it since he doesn’t want a girlfriend yet.
  • Supreme Chef: He turns out be a pretty good cook in Konomi's route, when he decides to cook stir-fried meat and vegetables for the Naginata club. Konomi and the other club members enjoy it upon first taste.
  • Transfer Student Uniforms: Justified, since Vincennes is an all-girls school, and thus, they have no male uniforms, forcing Masaya to use his old school's uniform instead.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In Chiho’s route, Masaya comes to the conclusion that the best way to handle a knife-wielding crazy guy that’s after him is to leave a wealthy area with its own dedicated security and go out on his own, alone, and with no guarantee that he can handle a man with a knife. Never mind that this also completely undermines everything Masaya, his friends and his girlfriend have been trying to do. When he runs into him, he’s actually stupid enough to not only not take him to the police immediately, but also drink something his father has prepared and gets drugged as a result.

    Rise Rousenin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rise_rousenin.jpg
Voiced by: Yuki Satou (Cast as Yuki Akashi)

Head of the White Lily Society. After a chance encounter with the Vincennes security and the Yakuza one night, she decides to repay her savior by allowing him into the school as part of the potential coed integration program her grandmother is a part of.

Her title is "Soleil D'Ecole" (Sun of the School).

  • Adorkable: Rise normally has her act together, even if she’s a bit clingy and tsuntsun sometimes. However, when she begins trying to practice kissing with Masaya by herself, she begins channeling pure concentrated dork. She even says kyaa with >< eyes
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Rise gets increasingly grumpy upon learning of the existence of Chiho, Masaya’s childhood friend. Both of them are irritable when Ayaka shows up and rather casually admits her interest in Masaya.
  • First Girl Wins: Rise is the first girl met in the story and the clear main heroine. She’s also known him the second longest.
  • First Love: Rise’s first love was a boy she met in town when lost who guided her to the Rousenin estate. They went to a festival together, which ended badly. That boy was Masaya, though he doesn’t remember it.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: When meeting Rise for the ‘first’ time, Masaya gets a vague flashback and sense of familiarity from her face. They met when they were kids and Masaya showed her to her grandmother’s estate, after which they became friends and started to play together. Eventually, they went to a summer festival where an attempted murder/arson took place and Masaya was badly wounded.
  • Honor Before Reason: Subverted. In Rise’s route, she promises that if anything happens during the cultural festival, she’ll step down as the White Lily leader. When the two goons show up and make trouble, she just says she's lying and refuses to step down. When the headmistress slaps her as a result, the two of them basically agree to call it even.
  • I Lied: Rise promises to resign as head of the White Lily society if there are any problems during the Culture Festival. When the two hoodlums show up and bait Masaya and Rise into attacking him, she says “Ha, no, not gonna happen. Sorry for saying I’d resign when I had no intention of doing so whatsoever.” To be fair, the headmistress clearly engineered the whole event without even telling the school security, who wanted to deny them entrance. The headmistress is so pissed that she slaps Rise right in front of Masaya, the Gardiane and Sister Mishima, an impulsive action that leaves her unable to punish Masaya or risk getting in trouble herself.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Apparently she’s so perfect and pretty that she outshines professional idols because her facial features are simply flawless.
  • Internal Reformist: She loves Vincennes, but can't stomach to see the school continue their old traditions despite being on the verge of bankruptcy. So she decides to become the President of the White Lily Society in order to save the school, in this case by helping to push for gender integration. In the process, she also wishes to subvert a lot of the old traditions that hamper a lot of other students as well as the school itself.
  • Keigo: Masaya finds Rise’s polite speech surprising. She isn’t aware that it’s unusual and actually isn’t a particularly formal person, immediately speaking to him on a First-Name Basis. She was just raised that way.
  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: It doesn’t occur to Rise until afterward that someone in the middle of a quasi-political campaign probably shouldn’t be having sex in the middle of her clubroom during the day.
  • Nice Girl: Very accepting and not nearly as judgmental as the rest of the girls in the school.
  • Official Couple: Rise is clearly the main heroine. She gets to be first girl, she’s met Masaya in the past under romantic-ish circumstances, she’s the center of the White Lily society and she has the most involvement with the backstory of the school and Masaya himself.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Rise’s father is always on business and her mother is in the hospital for a mental illness and being all stabby. She was mostly raised by her grandmother for the latter half of her life.
  • Rebellious Princess: Rise finds life at Vincennes suffocating and restrictive, so she likes to sneak out whenever she can. She doesn’t really know how to behave properly when outside, though.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Rise is very polite and kind, though also passionate and emotional.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Rise doesn’t seem to entirely grasp the idea of poverty, but she’s still very friendly and willing to spend her own money on others.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Rise is totally not upset about Masaya being closer to his childhood friend than her, no sir. Tamie graciously lets her know she’ll let this one event slide.
  • Tsundere: Rise turns out to be surprisingly tsun-tsun, though never really mean to Masaya directly. She and Chiho often get into tsundere fights.
  • Woman Scorned: Rise muses that she could see herself pulling a knife on Masaya if he cheated on her. She’s not exactly thrilled with the idea, but it doesn’t seem to bother her either. Given her mother, the implications are just charming.
  • Yandere: Rise “jokes” that she might stab Masaya is he ever cheats on her. Might come off a bit unfunny given that her mom really is mentally ill and really has slashed people with a knife. Rise tries to insist that they’re separate, but yandere jokes kind of push it.

    Chiho Sagisawa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chiho.jpg
Voiced by: Keito Mizukiri

A childhood friend of Masaya's, who enrolled into Vincennes during Final Course. Because of this, and the fact that she's from a middle class family, she's mostly looked down upon by most other students. She becomes an affiliate of the White Lily Society after Masaya and Rise convince her that the reformation will also benefit on her end. Aside from this, she is also a member of the school's track club.

Because of her social status and lack of fame, she doesn't have any title.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Chiho is also somewhat hated for being middle class and not really fitting into the stagnant culture of Vincennes. There are only a few people with a good opinion of her. Surprisingly, Mitsuki is one of them, having great faith in her as a judge of character.
  • Cassandra Truth: Chiho doesn’t want to fight with Masaya, but she’s convinced that he’s lying to her so she can’t accept his apologies.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She’s obviously tsundere for Masaya and his inner monologue notes in passing he had a crush on her when he was younger, though he doesn’t tell her. It’s a Discussed Trope later on after they start dating. It’s really not very common and there’s an initially awkward period where they try to have their relationship transfer to a more romantic one despite almost viewing each other as siblings.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Chiho is normally pretty neutral, but she gets pissed about Rise and Masaya together after she realizes Masaya broke a promise to go to a summer festival with her so he could hang out with Rise instead. She realizes she isn’t being entirely unfair, but she’s upset that Masaya is interested in her after he broke a promise with Chiho to go to a summer festival. It’s actually Rise’s fault, though, because she manipulated him into it by playing the pity card, though she only clears up the misunderstanding in Chiho’s route.
  • Fanservice Pack: Masaya is continually amazed at how Chiho seemingly went from completely flat to a moderately large chest in just a year.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Sports a pair of long twintails.
  • Good Parents: Chiho’s parents have the fine distinction of not committing any felonies. They also helped take care of Masaya when he was younger and could barely keep himself fed.
  • Honor Before Reason: Subverted: In Chiho’s route, he says he’ll confess to her if he wins the race. He slips and injures himself, coming in last place. After, he confesses anyway. He’s already been stringing her along for a month thanks to his own stupidity, after all.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Chiho and Masaya make plans to go out and buy porn together because they apparently feel they need reference material for some reason. He says he’ll probably feel awkward if there’s a female cashier and she laughs at him, after which she suggests that she buy it instead. She refuses, saying it would be embarrassing.
  • Naked Apron: One of her love scenes in W Happiness has her wearing nothing but an apron while cooking for Masaya. Unsurprisingly, Coitus Ensues between her and Masaya.
  • Penny Among Diamonds: She's the only middle-class amongst the wealthy students of Vincennes, and as such, is looked down upon by most of the community because of it.
  • Put on a Bus: Chiho temporarily resigns from the White Lily Society during Rise’s route to put her feelings in order.
  • Tsundere: Chiho is astonished to see Masaya transfer into Vincennes. She hides from him at first and eventually ends up slapping him during their first meeting. After she figures out she’s blaming him for something that wasn’t his fault she relaxes, though she’s still slightly tsundere. Not that she’s fooling anyone, Masaya included.

    Ruriko Kamiyagi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ruriko.jpg
Voiced by: Shiho Tachibana (Cast as Shiho Nakaya)

Chiho's classmate, and a member of the bread baking club. After a chance encounter with Masaya early into his first term in Vincennes, she develops an interest in him, having never met any young men her age before. She becomes an affiliate of the White Lily Society after Rise requests her for help in recruiting Chiho.

Her title is "Bijou Bleu" (Blue Jewel).

  • Bittersweet Ending: In her route, Masaya loses the Grande Vote. Instead of losing all hope, she and her boyfriend decide to head to her father's place as they had promised in January. There, he offers the young man the position of being his Number Two in order to "test him", which the latter immediately accepts. In the end, Masaya, now the family's new butler and Ruriko's personal bodyguard, are still together, with their final scene being them walking around the Kamiyagi estate and vowing to spend the rest of the summer together.
  • Character Development: In her route, with Masaya's help, she eventually learns to adjust to living outside Vincennes, complete with bringing cash around instead of solely relying on credit cards.
  • Clean Pretty Reliable: Masaya manages to perform CPR on her after she almost drowns in her route. She suffers no serious consequences, and only coughs up a bit of water when he saves her. She even tells Masaya that she would treat it as a kiss.
  • Crocodile Tears: Ruriko at one point fakes tears to get sympathy. It’s clear that she’s doing it on purpose and she admits as much, proudly claiming it’s one step further on her plot to become a wicked seductress. When Chiho and Rise try, they just look angry.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Unlike Chiho or Rise, Ruriko doesn’t hide her feelings for Masaya and unlike Ayaka, she doesn’t play them off as a joke either.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Ruriko mentions in passing that she knows how to drive after using the car around her family estate, but her father doesn’t want her to get a license because she becomes a different person behind the wheel.
  • Extreme Doormat: Tends to let her parents walk all over her, though contact with Masaya helps her grow out of it.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: She can bake really nice-looking and delicious bread, which everyone, even Masaya, compliments each time they have breakfast or tea with it.
  • First Kiss: She and Masaya have theirs late in Chapter 2 of her route after confessing their love to one another.
  • The Gadfly: Ruriko is rather fond of teasing the other girls, especially by making rather blatant innuendo and then revealing it to be innocent. It’s not entirely clear if she’s doing it on purpose, but Masaya occasionally suspects it’s intentional.
  • Harem Nanny: Ruriko tends to watch over Masaya’s romantic difficulties with mild amusement while staying out of them herself. Subverted in her route in W Happiness, where she does get involved by becoming his potential love interest.
  • Innocent Innuendo: Ruriko is rather prone to them, saying Masaya was her first when she just means he was the first boy to shake hands with her. Later, after he injures his hand, he talks about how rough, red, hot and swollen it is. After a while, Masaya seems slightly suspicious that the innuendo is always as innocent as it seems.
  • Make-Out Kids: She and Masaya have their Love Confession and subsequent First Kiss under the stars in her route...Which, unfortunately, everyone around them immediately takes notice of.
  • Nice Girl: Very accepting and not nearly as judgmental as the rest of the girls in the school.
  • Nice Hat: She gets a couple.
    • During winter, she gets a nice fur hat to complement her Pretty in Mink outfit.
    • On every other occasion she wears a sun hat with a prominent pink ribbon, which her mother gave her for use during the summer.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The normally kind and warm Ruriko stands up for herself in Chapter 10, and gives "The Reason You Suck" Speech to her ex-fiancee Eitaro in a cold voice that Masaya admits would never imagine coming from her.
  • Pretty in Mink: Her winter outfit, which has lots of fur on the sleeves and collar.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Notable in that she's the only White Lily Society girl that Masaya couldn't romance in the original, which W Happiness fixes this by giving her her own full route.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Panterbell, her pet. See his entry below.
  • Supreme Chef: She can bake really delicious bread, as well as prepare excellent tea. In Tamie's route, it's revealed she's also knowledgeable in making fondue. And in her route, it also turns out she can make really good sandwiches and even salads.
  • The Tease: Ruriko is surprisingly flirty for someone who seems so innocent most of the time. Masaya eventually comes to believe that most of her Innocent Innuendo is anything but and she gets even bolder with time. When Chiho, Ruriko, Rise and Ayaka are all lined up to try to see through a gap in the door, Rise complains that Ayaka’s boobs on her back are distracting and Chiho says the same about Ruriko. Ayaka isn’t doing it on purpose. Ruriko is.

    Ayaka Kitamikado 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ayaka_kitamikado.jpg
Voiced by: Wakana Sakuraba (Cast as Kana Yoshikawa)

The school's resident troublemaker, and as such she's not a stickler for the rules. She's also the older sister of Ritsuko, and one of two daughters of the headmistress.

Because of her aloof nature and troublemaking tendencies, she doesn't have a title, and is instead called "The other Kitamikado".

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Most other students in Vincennes refused to make friends with her until Masaya's arrival, due to her aloof nature and tendency to break rules. It's also why she has no title.
  • Becoming the Mask: When Ayaka relaxes a little and starts actually having fun at Vincennes, she stops acting like such a clown all the time because that’s not her real personality. However, it has become part of her over time, so she admits she won’t drop it entirely.
  • Blatant Lies: Ayaka picks out Masaya to dance when she doesn’t have his invitation or anything. Her lies about losing the paper are so blatant that even Masaya doesn’t buy it.
  • Covert Pervert: Ayaka likes to be seen as a flirt, but when Masaya realizes she probably has a substantial Porn Stash she gets quite embarrassed. People thinking she’s a tease is one thing, a pervert is quite another.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: She's the laid-back maverick to Ritsuko's responsible, by-the-book type.
  • The Gadfly: Ayaka starts sending Masaya fake love letters telling him to do weird things for shits and giggles. Or so it seems: She claims she was nervous about meeting him and she confirms it later.
  • Genki Girl: Contrasting the serious Ritsuko, Ayaka is rather energetic and flirty.
  • Hidden Depths: Ayaka is secretly pretty timid and quite cautious.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Not knowing that Masaya is lonely, Ayaka plays a lot of pranks on him, the last of which is pretty humiliating. The other girls call her out on it afterward.
  • Last Girl Wins: If you pick her route, this is definitely the case, as she's the last heroine and potential love interest introduced. Even if you count W Happiness, this is still the case, as Tamie, Konomi, Marika, Mitsuki, and Ruriko are all introduced within the first 3 or so chapters.
  • Like Father, Like Son: The headmistress calls Ayaka a whore because of her real mother, something that both offends and really hurts her because she thinks it might be true.
  • Sad Clown: Ayaka isn’t really as cheerful and carefree as she looks. She wanders around being irresponsible as a way to cope with the stress of her mother and is actually pretty timid.
  • The Matchmaker: Ayaka, for her part, is not particularly serious about Masaya either and tries to get him together with Rise in her route, though it takes some work to get her willing to participate in the matchmaker event in the cultural festival.
  • Sixth Ranger: She's the last of the original four heroines introduced, and she's the last to become a White Lily Society affiliate.
  • The Tease: Ayaka likes to jokingly flirt with Masaya, but she seems to be serious about it sometimes. Surprisingly, Masaya manages to ignore it most of the time and when he responds he’s much more convincing, causing her to panic. She’s more timid than she tries to appear.
  • The Unfavorite: The headmistress really hates Ayaka. It would be one thing if she didn’t like her because of her irresponsible attitude, but the order there is actually reversed; Ayaka acts out because of how her mother treats her. Her mother hates her for something that is in no way her fault, either, but simply has a grudge against Ayaka’s biological mother, completely ignoring her own hypocrisy.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Ayaka is actually somewhat shyer than she looks and makes Masaya jump through hoops before she’ll introduce herself properly. The last task is particularly humiliating and after he does it, the other girls call her out on stringing along someone who just wanted to make a new friend. She feels bad and leaves the academy to buy him an apology cake, but gets captured and needs him to rescue her.

Red Rose Society

One of two societies vying for control of the Student Council. They are conservatives that oppose the reformation program, and wish for the school to retain its status as an exclusive all-girls school even with the possible risk of bankrupting the establishment. By extension, they wish for Masaya to transfer out as soon as possible, at least at first. As time goes on, they turn out to be really affable, and aren't as hostile as they seem, although they still wish for Vincennes to remain a One-Gender School.

    Ritsuko Kitamikado 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ritsuko_kitamikado.jpg
Voiced by: Tae Okajima (Cast as Soyogi Tohno)

The new head of the Red Rose Society, appointed by Marika and Mitsuki due to her popularity rivaling that of Rise's. Despite this, she still follows Mitsuki's policies and planning. She is also the younger sister of Ayaka, and one of daughters of the Headmistress.

Her title is "Belle Epine" (Beautiful Briar Rose).

  • A-Cup Angst: Ritsuko is somewhat sensitive about her bust, though only if Masaya points out he likes large breasts, causing him to have to backpedal and say he likes slender girls too.
  • Advertised Extra: Ritsuko gets full heroine billing, pictured on the box and everything, but doesn’t have any strong ties to the protagonist and less screentime than the likes of Ruriko, whose route is confined to a fandisk
  • Authority in Name Only: For most of the common route, Ritsuko is a figurehead for the Red Rose society while Mitsuki handles the campaigning and tactics. Mitsuki WAS the leader until she handed the position to Ritsuko entirely because Ritsuko is more popular and would get more support from the students.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Ritsuko get pissed when Chiho and Rise act as The Beard to make hetero relationships seem more appealing to the girls of Vincennes. Chiho and Rise get pretty creeped out.
  • Dating Catwoman: Ritsuko is the fourth heroine and the leader of the association trying to get Masaya booted from the school.
  • Emotionless Girl: Ritsuko is known as the Briar Rose because she always appears pretty but distant and unemotional. In her route she begins loosening up and muses that if anyone could see her then they’d have to get her a new title immediately.
  • Extreme Doormat: Tends to let her parents walk all over her, though contact with Masaya helps her grow out of it.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: When Ritsuko isn’t sure if she likes Masaya or not, Konomi asks her how she would feel if Masaya broke up with her and went out with someone else. Her face instantly shadows over and she proclaims that it would be unforgivable.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: She's the responsible, by-the-book type to Ayaka's laid-back maverick.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite being on opposite sides of the gender integration issue, Ritsuko and later Konomi don’t really have any issue with Masaya or the White Lily girls.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: It’s mentioned in passing that during the brief summer camp a lot of Vincennes girls bring large stuffed animals. Ritsuko immediately wanders by talking about something call Lottabun, which she hastily tries to claim just means lots of books. Masaya isn’t quite convinced and during their date later wins her another stuffed animal at the summer festival.
  • Hidden Depths: Ritsuko feels pressured by people assuming how she should be behave.
  • Little Sister Heroine: Wanting to help Ayaka and Masaya get together, Ritsuko decides the best course of action would be to bring in Kayoko, a girl claiming to be his little sister. He hasn’t the faintest idea who she is while she says she always wanted to marry her older brother when she grew up.
  • The Matchmaker: Ritsuko sets aside her own feelings for Masaya immediately when she thinks he and Ayaka are interested in each other. She wants to help Ayaka avoid her normal foolish behavior because it would get in the way of her relationship with him. Unfortunately, when Ritsuko confronts her about it, she gets the wrong impression about it and thinks Ayaka isn’t confessing because she’s too frivolous.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Ritsuko acts cool and aloof because it’s expected of her, but she has a ton of stuffed animals and seems to want to have a chance to relax instead of being such a stickler for the rules all the time.
  • The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: While Ayaka has rejected any sort of responsibility apart from what roles she chooses to take of her own free will, Ritsuko always has to act as people expect her to, which is becoming increasingly burdensome for her.

    Mitsuki Mekata 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsuki_mekata.jpg
Voiced by: Yuu Iino (Cast as Suzune Kagetsu)

Head of the Red Rose Society until she decides to appoint Ritsuko as its new leader. Despite this power change, she still manages the majority of the society's operations. It's also made clear early on that she has a rivalry with Rise, as well as having an intense dislike for Masaya.

Her titles are "Chef de Corps" (Captain of the Guard) and "Larme de Lune" (Tears of the Moon).

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Mitsuki needs some alone time after seeing a couple fingering each other in the park, which makes her realize that eventually she’ll be doing similar things with Masaya. Though presumably not in public. She gets so wrapped up in it that she ends up late for a date, then has to go take a shower, making her even later.
  • Always Second Best: Mitsuki can never beat Rise. She gets high grades, people like her and she’s pretty attractive, but Rise outdoes her in everything.
    • Subverted in her route, however. Thanks to Masaya convincing her to grow out of her personal insecurities and anxiety, she manages to gain the confidence she needs, and, with this newfound resolve, manages to outdo Rise by winning the Grande Vote in the Red Rose Society's favor.
  • Anti-Villain: Like Marika, Mitsuki herself is reluctant in actively trying to sabotage the votes to keep Masaya in Vincennes. It's only after Marika kindly requests her does she come up with an Evil Plan.
  • Bad Liar: Mitsuki is an awful liar, though she gets away with a few early on in her route simply because no one would expect her to even try. When Rise questions Mitsuki as to why she came back to school early, the latter stammers out that there were family circumstances. You know, like a fight or something, maybe? She also screws up when it comes to concealing her relationship with Masaya despite being the one who really wants it kept secret. That’s bad enough, but then she tries to claim she was reading his palms.
  • Beauty Mark: Mitsuki has a small mole below her eye, which was the source of her former title, Tears of the Moon.
  • Bittersweet Ending: In her route, she manages to get the Red Rose Society to win thanks to her newfound popularity, but this also means that she won't be able to Masaya for a year. She expected this, however, and already made plans to visit him whenever she can, starting with her being his live-in partner for the entirety of their next summer vacation.
  • Broken Aesop: The result of Mitsuki’s route with the Red Rose association winning the Grande Vote seems to be intended to say that she can stand on equal footing with Rise or even beat her but even the story notes that it’s thanks to Masaya and the students failing to recognize that is the real reason Mitsuki won.
  • Character Development: In her route, with Masaya's help, she eventually learns to get over her insecurities and anxiety, and manages to become popular enough to rival, and at one point, surprass, her old friend Rise.
  • Covert Pervert: Mitsuki is late for a date because she gets too distracted with masturbating after seeing some lovers in the park and imagining Masaya doing the same to her. She also wants to head back to the park before going forward with their relationship. The embarrassing wallpaper was also the semi nude picture of Masaya the White Lily association uploaded before, which was swiftly deleted.
  • Dating Catwoman: Mitsuki’s fandisk route starts after the preliminary vote to see if Masaya can stay at Vincennes for the year. She develops a crush on him after the events with Marika. And, thanks to the headmistress' actions, she and Masaya begin spending more time together.
  • The Dragon: She plays this role to Marika late in the Common Route, being the one to help devise an Evil Plan that would help Masaya get removed at the end of the first term.
  • Does Not Like Men: She makes it clearly early on that she does not like Masaya, and by extension, other young men, from entering Vincennes, partly due to the belief that All Men Are Perverts. Late in the common route, however, Masaya and Rise manage to convince her otherwise. And in W Happiness, she can even come to love the very man she hated.
  • Evil Plan: Under Marika's orders, she comes up with a way to sabotage Masaya's standing in the upcoming vote at the end of the first term. In this case, she decides to create fake rape charges against him, with her faking interest in him and luring him into the trap. Marika, however, revises this so that she would be the fall girl.
  • Friendly Enemy: By Chapter 13, following her Heel–Face Turn, she has no issues against the White Lily Society nor Masaya, and even joins Rise and company for tea once more. Since she's still part of the Red Rose Society though, she makes it clear that she's still opposed to the schoolwide reform her friend is pushing for.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The root cause of Mitsuki and Rise’s friendship dissolving is that Mitsuki felt jealous of Rise and wanted her own, separate identity. She kept hearing people referring to her as though she was inferior to Rise, which really bothered her.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Rise and Masaya confront her in Chapter 12 and point out the wrongness of her actions and the truth of her drifting apart with the former, she decides to come clean and help remove the fake charges against him.
  • Heel Realization: With Rise's help, she eventually comes to realize the wrongness of her actions (specifically how using unfair actions in trying to have Masaya kicked from the school would result in No Challenge Equals No Satisfaction), as well as the truth of her drifting apart with her former best friend.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: In Mitsuki’s route, she’s still a little withdrawn even though her relationship with Rise has been repaired. Rather than charge in like normal, Rise feels awkward and slightly jealous of Marika and so she wants to follow Mitsuki around and indirectly find out what the problem is. She sounds like a spurned lover sometimes. When Masaya tries to find out why Mitsuki is acting strangely, it ends up coming off as him trying to play matchmaker for Rise and Mitsuki instead. Mitsuki later clarifies to Rise that while she admires Marika, she likes Rise more. She blushes.
  • I Am Not Pretty: Mitsuki feels inferior to the girls around her, but mostly Rise in particular. She also thinks she’s plain.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Mitsuki is convinced that Masaya must like someone in the White Lily association and thinks pretty poorly of herself. That said, she still goes out of her way to spend as much time as she can with him during the summer break.
  • Irony: In W Happiness, she can go from (formerly) hating Masaya to actually falling for, and even possibly dating, the very person she hated.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her poor attitude towards Rise and Masaya, Mitsuki still tries to be fair. She’s shocked when Marika kicks Masaya half dressed out into the hallway and when seeing Chiho and Masaya chatting normally admits that the assumptions about him being a playboy were clearly just her jumping to conclusions. It seems Marika has just been a bad influence on her.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Mitsuki tries to pretend to know a lot about sex when Masaya asks her, but she’s almost as ignorant as Konomi, who thinks you can get pregnant by holding eye contact for too long.
  • The Matchmaker: In Marika's route, she helps both Masaya and Marika get together by offering both of them romantic advice.
  • Mistaken for Gay: In Mitsuki’s route, she’s shown to be awkward and slightly distant after the preliminary vote to allow Masaya to stay passes. Everyone assumes she must be feeling uncomfortable after Marika kissed him on the cheek to show she was not being coerced when protesting his innocence and Masaya eventually asks her if she loves Marika, thinking she might be a lesbian. Mitsuki is rather confused, but eventually clarifies that she doesn’t love Marika.
  • No Challenge Equals No Satisfaction: After Mitsuki has her Heel Realization and stops being such a jerk, she makes it clear that she still intends to beat the White Lily association, but she wants to do it fairly and when they’re at their best.
  • Oblivious to Love: Especially obvious early in the story, where she's fixated mostly with her rivalry with Rise and the handling of the Red Rose Society. In her route though, she manages to overcome this when she begins developing a crush on Masaya.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Mitsuki has a Certain Someone’s picture in her cell phone. When she accidentally forgets it in the classroom, she sprints down the hall and snatches it from the headmistress’ hands before she can find out what’s inside. Everyone is shocked at how panicked she’s acting.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Mitsuki is pretty, popular and intelligent, but Rise just outshines her anyway.
  • Secret Keeper: In Marika's route, she comes to the conclusion that she and Masaya are dating from their behavior and words. Rather than spill the beans to the White Lily and other Red Rose girls, she elects to help keep it a secret.
  • Secret Relationship: Subverted. Masaya and Mitsuki attempt to keep their relationship a secret since their positions would make it awkward if people found out. Of course, they’re both way too honest for their own good and barely make it to the festival before the White Lily association finds them together on a date. Mitsuki has also failed to grasp what’s involved in concealing a relationship: They’ll barely be able to spend any time together. She still wants to go through with it though, but is such a bad liar that after the first time they sleep together, she cheerfully walks up to him in public and holds his hand, having completely forgotten to not act any differently towards him. Now that she can’t hide it anymore, she admits that she’s sick of trying.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Downplayed. Among the Red Rose Society members, she's the only one who's actively trying to have Masaya removed from Vincennes. Although, in this case, it's only because she wanted to try and help Marika, not out of any actual malice.
  • Tsundere: In her route, Mitsuki seems to want to be a tsundere, but can’t seem to muster up a suitably abrasive attitude, so she just makes excuses any time she says something that hints at liking Masaya.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When Rise calls Mitsuki out to talk about the fake rape charges against Masaya she says that if she refuses to even talk about something so serious, the two of them can never, ever be friends again.

    Konomi Yanase 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/konomi_yanase.jpg
Voiced by: Yukina Fujimori

An affiliate of the Red Rose Society who looks up to Ritsuko as an idol figure. She's also the president of the Naginata club.

Her titles are "Mignon Poupee" (Darling Doll) and "Lame Sans Merci" (The Merciless Blade).

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Ritsuko doesn’t dislike Konomi, but she doesn’t return her affections and is mostly troubled or even annoyed by them.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: The youngest of the main characters, and the youngest of Masaya's potential love interests. As such, Masaya and the others have to lecture her on how love and relationships work every other time they bring this stuff up in front of her.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Masaya gets expelled from Vincennes partly due to the nature of his relationship with her, but it gets better for them when her grandmother approves of his naginata skills, and asks him to continue training at their dojo, complete with a place to stay. The epilogue has them spending their first date in months, which they cut short when they decide to head back to the family dojo and train together.
  • Blade on a Stick: She's in the school's naginata club, so she has a practice one. And she brings it with her to the ballroom dance in Chapter 5 in order to "duel" Masaya.
  • Bridal Carry: She's on the receiving end of one when Masaya catches her after she falls from a tree while trying to retrieve Masaya's nametag for the ballroom dance. It happens again in her route, with Masaya having to carry her after she gets tired from the naginata tournament, and then once more after she injures her ankle during the summer festival.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Definitely. Each time she learns something, it's an inevitability that she'll spill the beans one way or the other.
    • After the earthquake in Chapter 7 leaves them stranded in the school's public bath (for Masaya to "prove" to her that not All Men Are Perverts), she blatantly admits to both the White Lily and Red Rose girls that she and Masaya had a "naked date", which causes every girl who heard what she said to stand up.
    • This is also the reason why she's Locked Out of the Loop with regards to Mitsuki in the latter's route. While Ritsuko could easily keep a secret, she can't thanks to her actions in the aforementioned incident.
    • In her own route, she just flat out admits to both the other Red Rose and White Lily girls that she and Masaya had Their First Time the other night. Yes. And not long after that, she also admits to using Ayaka's erotic light novel as reference for her "sex education".
  • Catch-Phrase: "...Aaaaahhh!!!", especially whenever something about love and relationships is discussed.
  • Character Development: In her route, she gradually learns on how love and relationships really work, and as a result matures little by little over time, although she's still bad at keeping secrets. She also learns to appreciate her "Mignon Poupee" title.f
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Konomi really hates it when there’s any possibility of Ritsuko and Masaya getting closer and always tries to interfere. During the early parts of Ritsuko’s route she starts getting in the way out of her own admitted selfishness, though she apologizes afterward to both Ritsuko and Masaya and promises not to get in the way anymore.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Oh yeah. She's the kind of person who goes to a ballroom dance in a martial arts uniform (because its competitive) and thinks that pregnancy happens just because a guy stares at a girl for too long.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: In her route, she can cook edible curry despite messing up with cutting the vegetables used in it. Masaya complements her surprisingly good food.
  • Dating Catwoman: In her route, this applies to both her and Masaya, due to them technically being on opposing sides of the reformation issue.
  • Fear of Thunder: Konomi gets rather scared with it storms. Masaya does help her partially grow out of this mindset eventually, with Ayaka's help.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite being on opposite sides of the gender integration issue, Ritsuko and later Konomi don’t really have any issue with Masaya or the White Lily girls.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Konomi seems like a Schoolgirl Lesbian at first, but she’s actually attracted to Masaya and mostly just wants to protect and idolize Ritsuko.
  • Innocent Innuendo: Konomi is rather sheltered and doesn’t pay attention in sex ed, leading to statements like saying she’ll be Ritsuko’s lover even if she’s in a relationship with Masaya. All she really means is that she’ll keep caring for Ritsuko forever.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Konomi stops interfering with Ritsuko’s relationships because she knows she doesn’t really love her and also wants Ritsuko to be happy.
  • Lethal Chef: The curry she concocts in Tamie's route proves to be inedible, raw vegetables and all. Ritsuko, naturally, is disgusted and refuses to eat it.
  • Naginatas Are Feminine: She's the president of the school's Naginata club, and her life practically revolves around it.
  • Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality: A variation during the common route. She is afraid of simply looking at Masaya in the misguided belief that this would get her pregnant. Fortunately, Ayaka and Masaya manage to fix her fears, somewhat.
    • She continues these habits in her route too, especially when she's nervous around Masaya even after they've started dating. It's for this reason that he chooses to go slow with her and teach her everything there is to know about love and relationships.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Most of her screentime has her saying and/or doing ridiculous things. She does get better over time, although she will slip into this on occasion.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: She insists that Ritsuko is her Onee-sama, which the latter puts up with to some extent. When Ritsuko starts liking Masaya instead Konomi starts complaining about how she isn’t acting like herself because Ritsuko surely MUST be a lesbian if Konomi says so. She does apologize after getting in the way of Ritsuko’s date, however.
  • Spirited Competitor: It's clear early on that, thanks to her upbringing as a practitioner of Naginata, she sees every challenge she comes up with as some form of duel, whether it be dancing or even dating. And because of it, she also won't back down from any of these as a result.

Other students and faculty

Students and Faculty of Vincennes who are not directly associated with the White Lily and Red Rose Societies.

    Marika Myougi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marika_myougi.jpg
Voiced by: Mitsu Takashiro (Cast as Ryou Kasumi)

The Student Council President at Vincennes. While technically neutral in the potential reformation program, it becomes clear that she's sympathetic to the cause of the Red Rose Society, specifically with Mitsuki.

Her titles are "Grande Fleur" (Great Flower) and "La Toute Soeur" (Everyone's Big Sister).

  • Anti-Villain: Yes, she may have conspired with Mitsuki to hatch an Evil Plan involving fake rape charges that would have Masaya booted from the school, but its shown during the planning stage that she doesn't want her supporter's reputation to be on the line, and she is very reluctant and guilty in wanting to push through with it. In fact, she only decides on pulling off the plan when no other options are allowed to her in the time given by her grandmother.
  • The Atoner: After the whole incident she caused, she makes it a point to undo all the damage she's done.In her route, it goes further, when one of the first things she confides to Masaya directly is formally apologizing for all the horrible things she's done to him.
  • Attempted Suicide: Faking rape charges against Masaya is so obviously wrong that Marika’s already poor mental state breaks down even further. She climbs to the top of the cathedral and intends to jump off. Mitsuki and Rise manage to talk her down and Masaya catches her arm when she slips.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Marika seems polite and refined, but she boots Masaya out into the hallway while half dressed with no warning and continually tries to make things difficult for him. She seems to be responsible for Mitsuki’s personality taking a turn for the worse. That said, she generally refrains from interfering or taking a position on whether or not he can stay at school and gets increasingly upset as her grandmother tries to make her lie and cheat to make Masaya look bad. She also mellows out when it becomes clear he’s not a bad guy.
  • Bittersweet Ending: In her route, after Masaya loses the Grande Vote, Rise decides to make it up to him and Marika by holding an informal Temps de Confession on Graduation Day. When they finally do push through with it, it turns out that among the people Rise informed about this ceremony was Marika's grandmother. Instead of berating her and Masaya like before, she finally warms up to him and gets Marika's respect back, and asks that Masaya take care of her granddaughter from then on. The epilogue has them spending the summer together at the Myougi residence, with them vowing to see each other more often now that they're both out of Vincennes.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Marika tries to say that she wants to go have fun at karaoke, but instead says she likes karaage (fried chicken) and other unrelated words starting with kara.
  • Character Development: In her route, she, with Masaya's help, learns to forgive herself for all the trouble she gave to him. Later, when he learns about her past, he also gets her to question what her grandmother wants her to do, and what she really wants for herself in the future. Eventually, she decides on a "blank slate" for her future.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In W Happiness, she disappears entirely from Konomi's, Tamie's, and Ruriko's routes.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Late in the common route, she has conflicting loyalty between her own morals and principles, and what her grandmother asks her to do. This results in her getting so stressed out, that she attempts suicide, not helped by her massive guilt in pulling off the Evil Plan to get Masaya expelled.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: When her grandmother and the school force Marika to act against her morals too strongly, her eyes lose all their light when she visits Masaya, though she keeps her normal constant smile.
  • Easily Forgiven: Played with. While Masaya and the other girls do forgive her easily for the fake rape charges incident, she herself still feels massively guilty about the deed, and cannot forgive herself for doing something so dastardly.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Bitch in Sheep's Clothing to Masaya she may be, but even she thinks that faking rape charges on him just to please the school and her grandmother is too far, and she feels massively guilty about it afterward, especially in her fandisc route.
  • Evil Plan: Her grandmother forces her to come up with one in order to have Masaya lose the vote at the end of first term. This culminates, with Mitsuki's help, in a plan involving making faking rape charges against him.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Definitely. Thanks to her experiences in the Home Economics Club, she can cook food really well. And in her route, she feeds Masaya several different dishes she made herself, which he immediately enjoys eating.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Mitsuki, Masaya, and Rise convince her to be loyal to her own beliefs instead of relying on her grandmother, and then save her from slipping to her death following an Attempted Suicide, she decides to undo all the damage she caused.
  • Hidden Depths: In her route, it turns out that one of her favorite hobbies is singing, especially at a karaoke bar near the station.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: When Masaya yells at Marika, she finds it kind of hot because no one has ever scolded her before. Her route explains this a little further: Usually no one ever asks her personal questions or gets involved in her affairs. Even her greatest supporters don’t even know what she likes to do in her spare time.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Marika falls into this one as well for a very good reason: She tried to frame him for attempted rape. It’s implied that her feelings of inadequacy are probably what kept her from trying anything during the main story, where she clearly had a crush on Masaya after he saved her.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Marika’s morals balk at her grandmother’s openly manipulative nature, but she still follows her will. It then goes down another level when Mitsuki blindly follows Marika’s instructions despite her own reservations.
  • Nice Hat: Part of her disguise when going out with Masaya in her route has her wear an expensive hat she hand picked from a store near the station.
  • Onee-sama: Marika is considered the Onee-sama for the entire school. Mitauki is particularly jealous of anyone getting close to her.
  • Parental Abandonment: Marika's parents died when she was a child. See Raised by Grandparents below.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Marika is always seen smiling. It pisses off Rise, who thinks she looks smug.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: She wears glasses in public. as part of a disguise in hiding their Secret Relationship.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Marika wounded up being raised by her grandmother after her parents passed away as a child.
  • Redemption Quest: Her route in W Happiness doubles as this, as she tries to forgive herself for wronging Masaya in the past, while at the same time warming up to him over time.
  • Secret Relationship: Following Masaya making his Love Confession to her in her route, they both vow to keep their budding relationship a secret, due to the fact that it might affect his standing in Vincennes, as well as her own reputation as Student Council President. This becomes subverted when the beans are finally spilled in Chapter 4 of her route, as rumors of them being seen together at the hotel begin to circulate around school, and both are forced to come clean.
  • Student Council President: The current one. One of her titles even reflects her position.
  • Supreme Chef: She used to be part of the school's home economics club before becoming Student Council President, so she has experience cooking food herself. In her route, she cooks for Masaya, who immediately begins enjoying the set of dishes she prepared for him.
  • Through His Stomach: One of her methods in "making a move" on Masaya in her route is cooking him a set of dishes she made herself, and then spoonfeeding it all to him during lunch in the summertime.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Marika’s grandmother manipulates her into attempting to get rid of Masaya by any means possible so she pretends he tried to rape her.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: When Marika is clearing Masaya’s name with the student body after accusations of rape, one student says she’s read Shoujo manga where the rapist boyfriend breaks the heroine’s mind and makes them like being abused. Sorry, not that kind of game.

    Tamie Nogi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tamie_nogi.jpg
Voiced by: Akane Sanada (Cast as Akane Ueda)

The president of the school's newspaper club, and an enthusiastic journalist. Following Masaya's application into Vincennes, she decides to cover stories relating to his stay there.

Her title is "Sombre Scanner" (Dark Scanner).

  • A-Cup Angst: Tamie is hardly flat, but is slightly mournful that she doesn’t have a large chest so she can look better in her dress during the ball.
    • In her route, however, it becomes subverted when Masaya tells her that he doesn't mind if they're smaller, since, in his eyes, they're "big enough". This statement becomes enough for her to do a complete 180 on her opinion, and she begins telling the other girls, namely Ruriko, Ayaka, and Rise, that their large busts get in their way.
  • Above the Influence: In Tamie’s route, she loses her memory right around the time he decides he likes her. Without her memory, she’s throwing herself at him, but he says he doesn’t want to confess to her until he’s sure she felt the same way BEFORE the amnesia.
  • Amnesiac Lover: Inverted. Tamie and Masaya aren’t dating, but when she gets amnesia she assumes he’s her boyfriend and acts accordingly until corrected. She’s pretty disappointed and he’s uncomfortable because he IS attracted to her, but isn’t sure if pre-memory loss Tamie liked him or if she just started to like him because she assumed he must be her boyfriend.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats. She wears a cat-shaped hat, and often displays mannerisms that would remind people of a cat.
  • Anchored Ship: Tamie and Masaya have issues going anywhere after her memory loss because while both are attracted to each other, neither one is sure that Tamie felt the same way pre-memory loss. Masaya wants her to get her memory back to make sure and she’s apprehensive about it because she doesn’t know if she’ll still feel the same way, though later events seem to convince her that she did.
  • Bittersweet Ending: In Tamie’s route they fail in the Grande Vote but it’s hardly the end of the world or their relationship. They’ve already made plans to meet once a week throughout their senior year. After they graduate, they can easily meet again.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Tamie loves to play the idiot, but gets disappointed or embarrassed when Masaya lets her stupidity pass without comment. She really wants a good tsukkomi reaction and rarely gets one outside his internal monologue.
  • Character Development: In her route, she learns to be polite instead of hogging people for her interviews, and learns how to be more modest in her job as head of the school newspaper club. She also learns that the newspaper club isn't the only thing that matters in the world.
  • Clean Pretty Reliable: Played with. Masaya gives Tamie CPR off-screen when she almost drowns, but then denies it for most of the route. She eventually vaguely remembers the sensations of lips touching, but when he tells her it was actually CPR she gets embarrassed at the misunderstanding. Not particularly clean, either, since vomiting up seawater is briefly alluded to. She still treats it like a kiss, though.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Completely averted with Tamie, who can easily discuss her own attractiveness relative to other girls and Masaya’s popularity without batting an eye. She also doesn’t mind that the other girls hang around him, despite recognizing that they like him. As a result, they end up the jealous ones thanks to how flirty and happy she is. The closest she gets is some jealousy before realizing her own feelings when a complete stranger hits on him.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: She loses her memory in her fandisk route right about the point she probably would have realized she liked him as more than just thinking "oh wow so hot" when they were together. She returns to school without knowing who he is, assuming he must be her boyfriend if they went around the country for a full week. When it turns out he isn’t, she’s anything but subtle when flirting with him.
  • Easy Amnesia: A sign falls on Tamie’s head. She loses her memory. Bam, instant relationship drama since a hookup seemed about five minutes away. Can’t have that! Though Tamie with memory loss doesn’t seem to like Masaya any less than she did before, so whatever.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Tamie pretends she didn’t hear Rise obviously getting tsun-tsun about Masaya and Chiho despite usually wanting to report on every story. While she’s a bit of a news hound, she also avoids pushing people on things they don’t want to talk about, which leaves her puzzled when she basically forces Masaya to make a bet with her.
  • Genki Girl: Tamie is rather cheery and outgoing.
  • Genre Savvy: Tamie in her fandisk route seems to be aware that it’s her route, instantly abandoning her normal attitude of not bothering to pursue Masaya and acting girlier. She later notes that it’s unexpected for Masaya to find her attractive since she’s more of a supporting character: She’s a reporter, so she’s not really supposed to be in the limelight herself but rather hover around people who are. She’s also much better at reading emotional cues than Masaya, who usually ignores them on purpose.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Tamie hints that she has a bit of a crush on Masaya once or twice, but says she’s not even going to bother trying with the White Lily and Red Rose societies swarming around him all the time. During Chiho’s route she also flirts with him after he hooks up with her, saying that if he breaks up with Chiho he should come straight to her. Subverted in W Happiness, where she gets her own route, and in a weird bit of genre savviness seems to realize she’s the heroine now and gets to act flirty.
  • I Am Not Pretty: Tamie doesn’t have much faith in her looks, especially given the people surrounding her most of the time. She learns to accept her looks in her route, thanks to Masaya convincing her otherwise.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Inverted. It's Masaya who becomes the insecure one in her route. This is mostly because of his fear and concerns that her feelings for him following her Easy Amnesia are not how she felt before she lost her memories, something he refuses to take advantage of.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Once Masaya enters Vincennes, she keeps involving herself throughout his stay, at one point even witnessing and photographing the former knock out one of the Yakuza thugs chasing after him, even as the thug in question was wielding a gun and threatening to shoot him.
  • Love Makes You Stupid: Tamie with memory loss obviously has a thing for Masaya. She begins acting like a total ditz around him as a result.
  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: In her route, she and Masaya have Their First Time at the lake on top of Mt. Amuro, a place normally barred from students outside of summer camp.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Her route has her become this for Masaya, who until that point in the common route, was enjoying an easygoing but uneventful life in Vincennes following the Premier Jugment.
  • Neutral No Longer: Invoked but averted. Ayaka asks Tamie if she plans to use the newspaper to support the White Lily association since she’s dating Masaya now. However, she has no intention of mixing up private and public affairs. She wants to help on a personal level but isn’t really sure what she can do.
  • Never Bareheaded: She is never shown without anything on her head, whether it's her hat, goggles, or even a headband with a prominent ribbon. Subverted in her route, where two of her scenes show her without any headwear.
  • Nice Girl: Tamie is slightly more aggressive in her attitude, but she’s still very friendly and accommodating. She tries to avoid bothering people despite her obsession with being a reporter, though she doesn’t always succeed. She’s also valued for helping keep a light mood.
  • Nice Hat: Her cat-shaped hat that she's almost always seen wearing. It's even implied that she keeps her additional recording equipment in there! And in her route, it even saves her life when a wooden sign hits her head by softening the impact.
  • Petite Pride: Downplayed, since she's far from flat. In her route, she begins to pride herself in her smaller figure after Masaya tells her that he doesn't mind her that way.
  • Photographic Memory: She's able to recover quickly from her memory loss partly thanks to being able to recall someone or something whenever she sees the person or thing in question.
  • The Pollyanna: Worrying about memory loss is for sissies. Tamie is just going to use the opportunity to flirt with Masaya. When he says he has no intention of upgrading their relationship while she’s still suffering from memory loss, she’s just pleased at the extra motivation to get it back. When she gets better, she says it was fun having no memory.
  • School Newspaper News Hound: Tamie is the group’s ally and runs the school newspaper.
  • Supreme Chef: In her route, she manages to make edible curry in her first cooking attempt. Later, she studies learning on how to make curry from scratch, and makes a delicious second batch that she and Masaya enjoy at the end.
  • The Tease: Once Tamie feels like she has a shot at Masaya, she starts being flirty and teasing him. Unfortunately, she’s not very good at it. Once she actually has him, if anything she’s even flirtier.

    Misako Kitamikado 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76614.jpg
Voiced by: Nana Inoue (Cast as Noel Kiriya)

The headmistress of Vincennes and the mother of Ayaka and Ritsuko.

  • Abusive Parents: Misako cares nothing for Ayaka’s wellbeing, slaps her at least once, treats Ritsuko like a pawn and blackmails her to get her way. Mother of the Year she is not.
  • Altar the Speed: Misako and her husband rushed their marriage forward to be immediately after the funeral of his wife, which a lot of people found highly disrespectful. Couldn’t help it, he’d gotten Misako pregnant.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: She gets what she wants in the endings of W Happiness, when Masaya and the White Lily Society lose the Grande Vote, allowing her vision of Vincennes remaining as a One-Gender School to continue.
  • Big Bad: While Ritsuko and her association oppose Masaya’s integration into the school and later remaking Vincennes to a coed institute, they rarely do anything bad about it. However, Misako is a petty, vengeful harpy who frequently abuses both her authority and her own children to fulfill her own selfish desires. On top of it, she’s a huge hypocrite.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: The headmistress basically vanishes in Tamie’s route.
  • Collateral Angst: Apparently, we’re supposed to feel bad for her because she’s guilty about seducing her best friend’s husband while Tomie was on her death bed. She then got pregnant and gave birth to Ayaka, which she couldn’t reconcile with her religious beliefs and thus decided Tomie was the villain here and went into heavy denial about her own misdeeds. Plus, while Tomie didn’t make a fuss since she was dying, she knew and felt incredibly betrayed. Oh, and pity Misako for abusing her daughter too. Both daughters, really.
  • Dean Bitterman: One of the Vincennes' highest ranking faculty, and a really strict and mean one at that, especially to Masaya.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Ruriko's route, she's relegated to being a minor character who only makes a handful of background appearances.
  • Does Not Like Men: Misako seems to hate men, especially if at Vincennes. Ritsuko privately considers her mother’s distaste somewhat childish.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even she's disgusted at Marika's grandmother's actions, which turn out to be an attempt at a power grab rather than genuine support for her opposition movement. She may be a petty jerkass, but it's clear that she values loyalty to a cause.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Misako is only referred to as Headmistress or mother until the climax of Ritsuko’s route. Only the chairwoman calls her by name, and in Ayaka’s route her name is mentioned earlier.
  • Evil Is Petty: On top of her child abuse, flagrant abuse of authority and willingness to commit crimes out of her obsession with Vincennes, Misako is also petty enough to try to search through Mitsuki’s phone simply because Mitsuki didn’t want her to and simply wanted to avoid the embarrassment of showing a picture that was inside her phone. She also makes multiple petty snipes at Masaya and gives him supplementary lessons because he forgot one single homework assignment. At least Masaya is an "enemy" of hers, but Mitsuki is one of her supporters and an honor student, meaning there’s no reason to harass her like that.
  • Evil Matriarch: She is cruel, controlling and vindictive, especially towards Ayaka. When Ritsuko refuses to play along with her mother’s selfishness any longer, she starts getting the same abusive treatment.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Her reaction when she finds out that one of her closest allies, Marika's grandmother, is not helping her out of genuine support for the opposition, but instead just to spite the Chairwoman, is a feeling of betrayal and utter disgust.
  • Freudian Excuse: She gets two.
    • The first one, regarding her treatment of Ayaka, is based on her being a horrible person in the past and betraying her dying friend followed by being unable to accept she had done anything wrong, so she can’t accept that Ayaka is her kid and treats her terribly and calls her the daughter of a whore, having actually convinced herself that a terminal cancer patient had an affair. Okay that’s not much of an excuse.
    • Her obsession with keeping Vincennes exactly the same is because Rise’s mother Kaori, her Onee-sama from when they were students, was mentally ill. She was brought to Vincennes to see that it had remained a constant in her life, but it had been remodeled. She snapped and attempted to burn down a shrine and kill her daughter. Misako is now convinced that she can’t let anything change about Vincennes.
  • Hypocrite: Among other things, Misako considers Ayaka’s mother a whore even though she herself seduced her husband which is not only a dick move to do to someone with a wife and child but also goes entirely against the Christian beliefs she claims to hold strongly, giving her double hypocrisy points. When Ayaka and Masaya realize the dates don’t match, her father admits that she’s actually Misako’s daughter after all, meaning her father impregnated Misako while still married to Tomie. Misako treating Ayaka terribly is just refusing to accept responsibility for her own actions.
  • Idiot Ball: Knowing perfectly well that Kaori has attacked Rise in the past and the chairwoman in the present, Misako still takes her into her home and shelters her. Unsurprisingly, Kaori attacks her too. It’s almost like knife-wielding maniacs are dangerous. Well, at least she acted like a human being for a change.
  • It's All About Me: Misako doesn’t seem to care about anything but her memories and her plans for Vincennes.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • Unpleasant as the headmistress is, Masaya and the others frequently do break the school rules, including knowingly placing themselves in danger. When Masaya injures himself while breaking the rules for no good reason and ends up in the hospital, she starts his house arrest period when he gets back rather than consider his time already served. He wasn’t available for punishment before, so why should he get to avoid it unlike everyone else involved? It’s hardly her fault that this would interfere with his plans for the week, even if she did seem to be taking a petty joy in depriving him of something he wanted.
    • She is right when she says that Tamie's idea of taking pictures of Masaya half-naked was ridiculous, as it can give off the wrong impression to uninformed students.
    • She’s also offended at one point when the main cast compares Masaya to Jesus. Ritsuko later points out that most Christians such as her mother would be pretty offended at such a blasphemy even though the students making such comparisons wouldn’t mean it like that.
  • Jerkass Realization: Misako eventually realizes that child abuse is bad in Ayaka’s route. Round of applause, everyone.
  • Karma Houdini: In Ritsuko’s route Misako has Masaya kidnapped and uses his wellbeing to blackmail her daughter, threatening that something might happen to him if she doesn’t marry a stranger for money so that the headmistress can keep Vincennes the way she wants it. Her punishment when her schemes finally come crashing down? She gives a quick apology that doesn’t really admit any wrongdoing. Nobody even so much as scolds her let alone point out that she’s committed several felonies, abused her authority and her children. This is not even getting started on how she treats Ayaka, either, though at least she at least feels bad about that eventually.
  • Never My Fault: Misako refuses to accept that she seduced the husband of her dying best friend and got pregnant. She convinces herself that Tomie had an affair, choosing to spit on the memory of her best friend and abuse her own daughter.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: In Rise's route, just as she's getting close to getting what she wants (specifically, getting Rise to resign as head of the White Lily Society), she makes a last-second blunder during her Villainous Breakdown by slapping Rise in the presence of the Gardiane, Sister Mishima, and Masaya, effectively causing a scandal that would damage her reputation should it ever come out. She's forced to let both Rise and Masaya off the hook as a result.
  • Smug Snake: She has the power and the influence to harass and belittle Masaya whenever she's not under the radar of the Chairwoman or his friends, but unfortunately also has a lot of overconfidence that often results in her plans getting foiled by factors she either never notices, takes seriously, and/or are beyond her control.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She has the same black hair and red eyes as her daughter Ritsuko. She also has a similar face to Ayaka.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: When Ritsuko and Masaya exchange rosaries, Misako is so upset at the insult to her memories that she swears she will never forgive them.

    Sister Mishima 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76620.jpg
Voiced by:

A nun at Vincennes who serves as Masaya's homeroom teacher.

  • Curtains Match The Windows: Brown hair and eyes.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Before driving the White Lily society around during the athletics festival, Sister Mishima suggests that they all make sure to offer their prayers to God with an eager expression at the idea of getting to drive. Afterward, Masaya is glad that his prayers managed to get through and they all arrived safely.
  • The Gadfly: She certainly has a wicked sense of humor.
    • At one point in Mitsuki's route, she plays up Masaya's missing math homework by delaying the announcement to the class with a Drum Roll.
    • Later, in chapter 2 of the same route, she keeps making suggestive comments to Masaya in order to kill time.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Sister Mishima even wears her habit out in the lake on a boat when she is, in theory, supposed to be acting as a lifeguard. When Masaya points this out, she asks if he wants to see her in a swimsuit that badly. More seriously, though, as a nun she feels it’s improper to wear anything else in public.
  • Ms. Exposition:
    • In Mitsuki's route, she gives Masaya a little bit of info regarding Mitsuki's childhood, namely that she was under her supervision since Primary school.
    • In Marika's route, she explains to Masaya the reasons for Marika's actions in the common route: her parents died when she was very young, leaving her grandmother as her sole guardian and influence early on.
  • Naughty Nuns: Averted. It’s noted that nuns take a vow of chastity, so nothing is going to happen along those lines. Sister Mishima really can be something of a tease, though, and seems genuinely disappointed that the idea doesn’t even cross Masaya's mind.
  • Ojou Ringlets: She has this style despite not being one.

    Mitsuko Rousenin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76619.jpg

Voiced by: Kei Kusamura

The chairwoman of Vincennes, Rise's grandmother and Kaori's mother.

  • Big Good: She's the leader of the reformation faction, the side that wants Vincennes to become a coed school. By extension, she supports Masaya wholeheartedly.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She disappears in the after-story routes except Marika's in W Happiness.
  • Cool Old Lady: She saves Masaya's ass from the headmistress' wrath on more than one occasion, and even roasts Misako at one point.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In contrast to Misako, who is openly hostile to Masaya and even obstructs him, Mitsuko openly supports him and her granddaughter, and is willing to listen to what both of them have to say.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She has the same light blue eyes as her daughter and granddaughter.

    Marika's grandmother 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76625.jpg

Voiced by: Kei Kusamura

Marika's grandmother, who is a member of the board of directors for Vincennes, as well as the former Chairwoman before Mitsuko. She supports the headmistress' opposition movement, but apparently has her own reasons for it.

  • Ascended Extra: She gets a bigger role in Marika's route, where part of her backstory is revealed alongside Marika's own backstory, as well as her Heel–Face Return at the end of the route.
  • Back for the Finale: She returns in the final chapter of Marika's route.
  • Broken Pedestal: Marika loses respect for her in Chapter 13. Downplayed though, in that she still sees her as someone important in her life, and still loves her despite all that happened.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She still loves Marika despite putting her through hell. She even says that she'll pray that she does the right thing before leaving in Chapter 13.
  • Evil Is Petty: She only wanted Masaya kicked to spite the chairwoman, her political rival. She even admits that had Rousenin sided with the opposition, she'd simply side with the reformist faction.
  • Evil Old Folks: She's an old woman who would involve innocent people in her petty revenge schemes. Subverted in Marika's route, where it's revealed she's actually much nicer than she actually is.
  • Heel–Face Return: In the finale of Marika's route, it's revealed that she's actually warmed up to Masaya offscreen. By the time she's shown onscreen again during the informal Temps de Confession between Masaya and Marika, she's much nicer to both her granddaughter and her new boyfriend. In the epilogue, she is even enjoying his company whenever he comes to visit her and her granddaughter at their residence.
  • No Name Given: She's only ever known as Marika's Grandmother in the common route. Chairwoman Rousenin does give her last name as "Myougi", the same as Marika. However, we never find out what her first name is.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: She only joined Misako's opposition movement just to spite Chairwoman Rousenin, as well as a desperate attempt to gain more power and influence in the board of directors.
  • Pet the Dog: In the finale of Marika's route, she actually calls Masaya by his full name, and wishes for him to take care of her granddaughter from then on.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: At the end of Marika's route, any conflict she's had with Marika is resolved when she finally warms up to her and Masaya.
  • So Proud of You: In the finale of Marika's route, she personally tells this to Marika following her informal Temps de Confession with Masaya in the cathedral.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She has the same blonde hair and green eyes as her granddaughter.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She genuinely believes her actions are for the betterment of her family's position in the board of directors.

Other characters

Characters not associated with Vincennes, such as students' parents, relatives, pets, and loved ones, as well as antagonists.

    The Goons 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yakuzagoons_8.jpg
Left: Kiyoshi;Right: The Boss
Voiced by: Yukimitsu Koshi (Boss) and Ichirou Kataoka (Kiyoshi)

A pair of Yakuza thugs who are hired by loan sharks to collect Masaya's father's debt. Aside from this, they also engage in kidnappings for ransom, as well as causing trouble for money.

  • Affably Evil: The boss, compared to his underling Kiyoshi, is rather polite and straightforward with regards to collecting debts. He even has a soft side, such as when he tries to comfort Ayaka after he and Kiyoshi kidnap her. That said, he still allows his underling to use intimidation and violence.
  • Arc Villain: They're the main antagonists of the early chapters, forcing Masaya to pay up his father's debts, as well as being responsible for Ayaka's kidnapping.
  • Ax-Crazy: For Kiyoshi, violence is always a first option, even when the person they're confronting is completely innocent.
  • The Bus Came Back: In the main story routes, following the route lock, they return to cause more trouble to Masaya and company.
  • Butt-Monkey: Kiyoshi is often on the receiving end of getting owned by Masaya and the Vincennes girls.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: They disappear from the story in the after-routes of W Happiness.
  • Dumb Muscle: Kiyoshi, who more than once gets outmaneuvered by Masaya and company.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Their reaction when they find out that Masaya's father sold out his own son to them is utter contempt and disgust. They may be criminals, but they are also professionals who look out for one another.
  • Evil Old Folks: The boss.
  • Evil Debt Collector: One of their jobs is collecting debts for loan sharks, and they use violent and aggressive methods in hounding the people who owe money to them.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Both of them prefer cigarettes, and engage in various crimes such as debt collecting for loan sharks and kidnapping for ransom.
  • Hired Guns: The debt collectors after Masaya's father entrust them with recovering the money that he owes them.
  • Karma Houdini: In the after-story routes of W Happiness, they never get any comeuppance for their crimes, and are still at large.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Every time they appear, expect the story's tone to shift to a dark and serious tone.
  • Psycho for Hire: They prefer force and violent methods in getting what they want, and are hired by loan sharks just for that reason alone.
    • In Rise's route, Misako hires them for this very reason, in order to force Rise into a difficult position and eventually resign.
  • The Quiet One: The Boss stays silent most of the time, allowing his underling Kiyoshi to do as he pleases.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're always seen together, and are constantly threatening Masaya and the Vincennes girls that are accompanying him.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Both of them to Misako, the headmistress, in Rise's route. She pays them 100,000 yen in secret beforehand, and subsequently uses their presence in Vincennes during the Cultural Festival and their violent methods to get Rise to become The Scapegoat, and force her to resign from her position as White Lily Society leader. Effectively, this would leave the Red Rose Society, her preferred faction, in power.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Kiyoshi wouldn't hesitate to hurt one in retaliation or kidnap one for ransom. Just ask Rise, Chiho, and Ayaka, who experience their wrath firsthand.
  • Yakuza: They're part of one such group.

    Shinya Okonogi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76627.jpg

Voiced by: Ranmaru

Masaya's father, a Con Man who refuses to find an actual job, and would rather swindle his way into getting money.

  • All There in the Manual: Only the credits list his full name. Most routes, including the fandisc ones, never reveal his name to us.
  • Abusive Parents: He sold out his own son just to get away from a huge debt.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: He and Misako are the main villains in Chiho's route. However, they have no association with one another, and have completely different reasons for going after Masaya. While Misako simply wants Masaya out of Vincennes, Shinya's motives are mainly to get his hands on Masaya's lottery winnings, and using Chiho as leverage for this.
  • The Charmer: He can sweet-talk and bullshit his way out of just about any problem, especially if it's debt-related. Unfortunately, he can only go so far once the Yakuza become the ones involved in collecting the debt in question.
  • Con Man: His specialty is sweet-talking his way out of problems, including borrowing huge sums of money from loan sharks without attracting suspicion.
  • Dirty Coward: It doesn't get any lower when you sell out your own son to organized criminals just to save your own skin.
  • Get Rich Quick Scheme: He asked Masaya, who was already broke himself, to buy a lottery ticket that he thinks has the winning numbers. While the ticket in question does prove to be the winning number, his constant fear of being hounded by the Yakuza forces him to flee before he can redeem it from his son.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: One of two. His selfish actions during the prologue cause the events of the main plot to unfold.
  • Karma Houdini: In most of the main story routes and all of the W Happiness after-story routes, he never gets any comeuppance, and is still on the run.
  • Parental Neglect: He refuses to get a job, and thus Masaya is often forced to work part-time jobs in order to earn.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He's introduced running away from his debts, and selling out his own son in the process.
  • Slipping a Mickey: One of his specialties is tampering tea with drugs that induce sleep. He uses this to full effect on both Masaya and Chiho in the latter's route.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Even after Masaya decides to stay by his side and help him after the former refuses to run away with his mother, he still abandons his son to the Yakuza.
  • Walking Spoiler: Only in Chiho's route, since he's the other half of the Big Bad Ensemble here, and the only route where he makes a physical comeback.

    Kaori Rousenin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76618.jpg

Voiced by:

Rise's mother and an alumnus of Vincennes.

  • Ax-Crazy: Kaori tried to stab Rise to death because she couldn’t deal with life outside of Vincennes, screaming that she wished her daughter had never been born. She’s harmless so long as she lives in the world of her delusions, though, but anything can jolt her out of it. Seeing Rise and Masaya give each other rosaries, for example, ignites her hatred for the chairwoman and makes Kaori go stab her.
  • Berserk Button: Anything that contradicts her vision of Vincennes whatsoever will trigger her.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Alongside Misako, the headmistress, in Rise's route. While they were associates in the past, Kaori's motivations for wreaking havoc stem from her delusions, and she isn't of the right mind to even consider siding with Misako's opposition movement.
  • Epiphany Therapy: Once Kaori is convinced that change isn’t necessarily bad, she’s apparently all better.
  • Evil Matriarch: Once her mental state reached a breaking point, she began doing things like strangling Rise. It comes to a head when she causes the arson and attempted murder at the shrine in the backstory, culminating in her trying to kill her own daughter Rise.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: One of two. Her past actions as the arsonist who caused the Shrine Incident in the backstory help propel the motivations of Masaya, Rise, Chiho, and Misako in the present.
  • Insanity Defense: Due to her insanity, Kaori was just put into a normal hospital room rather than a prison. No security or anything, oh no, that would be too harsh on the knife-wielding arsonist. Unsurprisingly, this would turn out to have been a bad idea.
  • I Reject Your Reality: She lives in a dream world where she’s still a student at Vincennes. If anything shakes her out of this, she’ll develop a sudden irrational hatred for her daughter.
  • Karma Houdini: Averted. At the end of Rise's route, Kaori turns herself into the police knowing she’ll be prosecuted for numerous causes of assault and attempted murder. She’ll probably get an incredibly light sentence, though.
  • Knife Nut: She tends to get a little stabby when she's holding a knife.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Kaori is very young and pretty, looking more like Rise's older sister than her mother. Unfortunately, she’s crazy enough that she used to actually think of Rise as her little sister until that grew too implausible, after which she insists to herself that Rise is her underclassman.
  • Offing the Offspring: Kaori tried to stab her daughter to death in the past.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Frequently switches between catatonia and refusing to admit that she wasn’t a Vincennes student anymore.
  • Self-Made Orphan: In addition to trying to cut up her daughter years ago, Kaori also stabs the chairwoman, her own mother, multiple times in Rise’s route.
  • Walking Spoiler: Given she played a crucial role behind the arson and attempted murder at the shrine years ago where Masaya lost his memory, not much can be shown without mentioning that.

    Panterbell 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/panterbell.png
"Kuu!!!"

Ruriko's pet. A "stoat" (at least, that's what Masaya assumes when he first sees him) that she found while exploring Mt. Amuro, she decided to nurse him back to health. He has a fondness for the bread that she bakes.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Ruriko just calls him a "he" because she thinks he looks like a gentleman.
  • Ascended Extra: He plays a larger and more active role in Ruriko's route, especially in the first 2 chapters.
  • Cartoon Creature: His species is never identified, and in contrast to The cat, is drawn in a more cartoonish way.
  • Nice Hat: Ruriko gave him a small tophat.
  • Punny Name: He's called Panterbell because of his love for bread ("Pan" being the Japanese word for bread).
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Ruriko’s living accessory Panterbell is cute, though nobody has any idea what he is. Or if he’s male at all. He gets to have a top hat because he is a classy gentleman.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bread.

    The Cat 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thecat.jpg

A stray cat that Masaya encounters during the prologue.

  • Androcles' Lion: The cat saves Masaya's life twice after he feeds part of his food to it.
  • Cats Are Mean: Well, it did steal Masaya's lottery ticket as retaliation for not him not giving enough food to it.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: The cat disappears in the prologue, only to reappear in Chapter 3. Not only does it unwittingly save Masaya from getting shot by one of the Goons, he manages to get his lost lottery ticket back from it when the cat vomits it out.
  • No Name Given: Justified, since the cat is a stray, and thus has no name to begin with.

    Kayoko Tsuda 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76621.jpg

  • Curtains Match The Windows: Purple hair and eyes.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Masaya was an only child, so having a sister show up who was looking for him for years was a great shock, made even more evident by the fact that Masaya's father is a massive sleazebag. Masaya later calls his father and finds it isn't true though.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her style.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Though she’s genuinely attracted to Masaya, this is mostly just a role Kayoko fakes in order to make Ayaka jealous. She follows him around everywhere talking about how much she loves her brother and he can’t make her leave in case she really is his sister.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Kayoko, a teen actress Ritsuko hired to make Ayaka jealous, pretends she’s the result of an affair between Masaya’s father and a Vincennes alumnus. She says she’s always wanted to marry her big brother, figuring she’d score some moe points. Unfortunately, he’s creeped out. She admits it was probably not the best idea she could have gone with, but she needed a role with SOME connection or he would have just ignored her outright.

    Kouji Kitamikado 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76613.jpg
Voiced by: Kojirou
Ayaka and Ritsuko's father who runs a restaurant as a chef.

  • The Cameo: He makes a minor appearance in Ruriko's route in W Happiness, where he's introduced as the Owner-Chef of Pappatore Moon Rock.
  • Extreme Doormat: Kouji is a nice person, but he never stands up for Ayaka. He goes along with what Misako says because Misako is crazy and he doesn’t want to hurt her by reminding her that Ayaka is her own daughter, not Tomie’s.
  • I Owe You My Life: He's grateful for Masaya handing the Yakuza their asses during the common route. In Ruriko's route, he gets to repay Masaya a favor by reserving a seat for him and Ruriko during their Christmas vacation date.
  • No Name Given: In Ruriko's route, he's only known as the Owner-Chef.

    Tomie Onodera 

    Eitaro 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eitaro.jpg
Ruriko's former fiancee. The only son of the owner of a large construction company, he has close ties with Ruriko's father.

  • Arc Villain: He's the main source of the conflict in Chapter 10.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: According to Ruriko, he seems nice enough when she meets him the first, and is rather polite to her and her father. His true colors are hinted to her when he gives off Death Glares to waiters for not getting his order. They are finally revealed when he barges into Vincennes, hurts Masaya and Ruriko's father in the process, and threatens to assault Ruriko physically in front of the other students.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He, using Ruriko's father's influence, tries to have Masaya expelled just because he got rejected by Ruriko.
  • It's All About Me: It's clear during his Villainous Breakdown that he only cares about getting this his way.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His Villainous Breakdown in the school's gymnasium helps to Masaya's benefit when he hits both him and Ruriko's father, causing Ruriko to give him "The Reason You Suck" Speech, and her father to cut ties with him, thereby allowing Masaya to stay in Vincennes.
  • Not Good with Rejection: When Ruriko rejects his proposal, he does not take it well, and resorts to getting back at Masaya simply because he assumed that he was dating her and convinced her to reject him.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Once things don't go his way, he begins to get angry and resort to violence. When Ruriko gives him "The Reason You Suck" Speech, he gives up and ends up having a temper tantrum like an elementary school child, and has to be dragged away by the Gardiane.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He has a long, drawn out one, after barging into the school's gymnasium, making one last, desperate attempt to get Ruriko to marry him.

    Chiho's parents 

    Ruriko's parents 
Voiced by: Ichirou Kataoka (Father) and Ren Haruna (Mother)

Ruriko's mother and father. Her father is the influential head of the Kamiyagi conglomerate, the richest company in the country. As such, he's the school's largest donor of funds, and is what is keeping the school from verging on bankruptcy.

  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed with Ruriko's father in her route. He gets more scenes and speaking lines compared to the base VN, but he's still mostly a supporting character.
  • Big Good: In Ruriko's route, he's the one who allows Masaya to date his daughter, and is generally overseeing the well-beings of the young couple.
  • The Bus Came Back: Ruriko's father returns in Chapter 3 of her route, when Masaya and Ruriko decide to go to the Kamiyagi estate to introduce himself.
  • The Faceless: Despite being fully voiced, both of their faces are never revealed.
  • Good Parents: It's clear that both of them genuinely care for their daughter and her well-being.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Ruriko's father genuinely thought that Eitaro was a good man to marry his daughter.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's very welcoming to Masaya after he helps save his daughter from Eitaro's wrath. In Ruriko's route, he decides to allow Masaya and Ruriko to go around without bodyguards, knowing full well that the former is more than capable of holding potential attackers back based on past experience. He even helps Masaya after he's forced to leave Vincennes after the White Lily lose the Grande Vote, by providing him a job as the Kamiyagi family's butler and Ruriko's personal bodyguard.
  • Satellite Character: Their scenes are solely with their daughter, in order to help establish her good relation with them.

    Konomi's parents 
Mr. and Mrs. Yanase, introduced properly in Konomi's route. Her father is an average salaryman, while her mother's job is unstated, although it's implied that she's an assistant instructor at the dojo they own.
  • The Faceless: Despite both of them being fully voiced, their faces are never shown.
  • Good Parents: It's clear that from their introduction onward that they took really good care of Konomi, their tendency to shelther her notwithstanding.
  • I Want Grandkids: Part of the reason they sent Konomi off to Vincennes was so that they could find a suitable groom for her in the future. In Konomi's route, they unexpectedly get their wish early when Masaya starts dating their daughter. Compared to Konomi's grandmother though, they're much more subtle about it.
  • Salaryman: Mr. Yanase is clearly shown to be this when Masaya is first introduced to him, complete with business suit and briefcase.
  • Satellite Character: Their role in Konomi's route is mainly to establish their good relationship with their daughter.

    Konomi's grandmother 
Introduced in Konomi's route, Konomi's grandmother is the head instructor of her family's dojo. As such, she is really skilled with the Naginata, and taught everything she knows to Konomi.

  • Blood Knight: It's clear early-on that she's really into fighting against others.
  • Cool Old Lady: Masaya takes quite an interest in her early-on, noting her legendary Naginata skills. She's even cool enough to offer Masaya a place as her apprentice during the ending of Konomi's route.
  • The Faceless: Despite being fully voiced, we never get to see her face.
  • I Want Grandkids: It's clear that she wants Masaya and Konomi together, and asks that he be her groom in the near-future. Compared to Konomi's parents, she much less subtle about it.
  • The Mentor: She's the one who taught Konomi all there is to know about the use of the naginata. In the ending of Konomi's route, she also becomes this to Masaya.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: Masaya notes that she's as short as her granddaughter.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She's short, but don't underestimate her. She practically grew up with the naginata, and while Masaya doesn't fight her, he still notes that she has a threatening aura during their stand-off.
  • Satellite Character: She's there mainly to establish where Konomi got her love for the naginata.

    Tamie's parents 

Tamie's mother and father. They only appear in her route from W Happiness.

  • The Faceless: We never get to see their faces, nor do they get their own artwork.
  • Flat Character: They don't get any development beyond their screentime.
  • Good Parents: From what little we know about them, Tamie certainly sees them in a very positive light.
  • Satellite Character: They are never shown without their daughter.
