Added DiffLines:

* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler:In the fifth episode of ''Progressive'', Haruko finally reveals herself as one of these and is not really human in the slightest. Her true body is a monstrous wasp made of energy which she can turn into at will to consume others.]]


* BiTheWay: She's clearly into guys, but in ''Alternative'', she looks very excited when she saw Kana and her friends naked bodies after she told them to strip in episode 3.

[[spoiler: Despite being older then the girls, he's actually even more immature then them especially with the way he reacts to Hijiri not taking him back.]]
** [[spoiler: He makes a big show about how mature it is for him to break up with Hijiri in person rather than by text. Of course near the end of the episode when he remembers he wants the expensive necklace he bought from her back, he [[{{Hypocrite}} naturally asks for it by text message]].

Added DiffLines:

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: In a quick scene that is easy to miss in the first episode, while her friends are playing games and lazing about, Pets can be seen smoking. [[spoiler: Attention isn't really brought to this, but this is the first early sign that not everything is going well for Pets.]]


* PurpleEyes: Possibly because she's AmbiguouslyHuman, not because of royalty associations (as is standard).

* TechnicolorEyes: She has purple eyes. Possibly because she's AmbiguouslyHuman.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: In ''Alternative'', she's not as involved in the plot as she is in the original and ''Progressive'', for the most part she only hangs around the girls because of the odd N.O energy she's getting from them and protects them from the robots that come about. Otherwise she largely just hangs back observing things.


* FetalPositionRebirth: [[spoiler:After her transformation into a plant to defeat Medical Mechanica, Aiko is reborn, nude, from a giant pumpkin]].

* CoolCar: She has an old vintage car, like how Haruko has her Vespa scooter. It seems to drive by ''itself'' while she hangs out on the back and can react independently at times, even transforming.

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Especially because of the shading on his upper lip, he doesn't look as much like a Gainax character as he does a typical Production I.G. character who would be right at home in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex''.


** [[spoiler: By episode 5 she finally decides to shut down the cafe and stop waiting for him. Hidomi doesn't take it well. In the final episode she decides to reopen it once Hidomi convinces her to do it for the two of them and not because she's waiting for Hidomi's father. She waited for her husband to come back because she believed Hidomi needed a completely family, not because Hinae didn't think about her daughter and held on to his return.]]
