* AmbiguouslyBi: While her PerverseSexualLust for Otome Game characters and early fixation on getting a boyfriend make her attraction to men obvious, her constant sexual harassment of Yuu raises a few eyebrows. What keeps Tomoko's sexuality ambiguous rather than a case of BiTheWay is that it's made clear at multiple points that Tomoko's [[NoSocialSkills lack of social awareness]] and [[WrongGenreSavvy reliance on anime tropes to navigate real life situations]] cause her to assume that LesYay in female friendships is not only common, but ''expected'', leading her to enforce it. Even as she develops more real life relationships and her pervertedness dies down, however, being caught in several NotWhatItLooksLike moments have led to Ucchi becoming absolutely ''certain'' that Tomoko is not only a lesbian, but a sexual deviant who surrounds herself with a harem of girls at all times. As Tomoko matures and becomes explicitly more aware of the concept of homosexuality (she even correctly defines "LBGT" in class), she still can't help but fall for Yuu's charms. Or more recently, [[https://imgur.com/a/9IM3Agq Asuka's.]]

* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Tomoko is absolutely ''smitten'' for her.


* AmbiguouslyBi: She has a very obvious crush on Tomoki, but like Tomoko, she's also very fixated on Yuu and sees Tomoko as a rival for her attention.


* ObliviousToLove: She's of the opinion that Tomoko doesn't really have any interest in her due to the latter appearing to be more comfortable around girls like Yuri, Hina, and Ucchi. She's unaware that the reason Tomoko is so uncomfortable around Asuka is that Tomoko is crushing furiously on her.
** It gets subverted in chapter 170 when Yuu finally explains to her the reason for Tomoko's actions.

She's unaware that the reason Tomoko is so uncomfortable around Asuka is that Tomoko is crushing furiously on her. In chapter 170, Yuu finally explains to her the reason for Tomoko's actions.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautifulAllAlong: It's been constantly brought up that Tomoko actually has good looks, but the problem is that she doesn't try grooming and looking out for herself that much. When she actually does, many of her friends do say how cute she is. This aspect can actually be seen in some of the later chapters where Tomoko decides to wear more flattering clothes and cleans herself more.


** She slides into AmbiguouslyGay territory starting with her third year due to her blatant crush on Asuka and spreading her sexual harassment to girls other then Yuu. She also has more or less stopped trying to get a boyfriend.


* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Or at least Tomoko does anyway because in her words Shizuku might be sly and try to butter up the boys but she looks hot doing it so she's okay in Tomoko's book. It should be noted that this does not apply to anyone else; if anything, other girls just seem to hate her.

* TheCheerleader: Both Fuuka and Miho are cheerleaders.



* PetTheDog: Despite her leeriness towards Tomoko, Fuuka does give Asuka an honest, if perverted, suggestion in how she can get closer to the introverted girl.



* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Miho isn't put off at all by Tomoko's perverted antics, and reacts to the latter's ogling of her shaved crotch with outright amusement.



* TheCheerleader: Both Fuuka and Miho are cheerleaders.


Added DiffLines:

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: She manages to keep up her poise even while suffering a nosebleed.


* ButtMonkey: This is what Fuuka's role is shaping out to be. She's constantly left red-faced in embarassment regarding bringing up sexually charged topics in public.

* ButtMonkey: This is what Fuuka's role is shaping out to be. She's constantly left red-faced Fuuka in embarassment regarding bringing up sexually charged spades. Her fixation on sexual topics in public.and figuring out the weird stuff with Asuka and Tomoko leads her to be publicly embarassed and seems to have affected her studies and it only gets worse for her from there. By the end of the summer study camp even her own friends have labeled her as "worthless".



* SatelliteCharacter: They all serve as this for Asuka though Fuuka's gotten more attention than the others.

to:

* TheNicknamer: Miho seems to liberally hand these out as she very quickly takes to calling Tomoko "Kuro-chan" and Yuu "Naru-chan".
* SatelliteCharacter: They all serve as this for Asuka though Fuuka's gotten more attention than intially. However the others.summer study camp gives all of them, especially Miho, some spotlight.


* CoolKidAndLoserFriendship: Asuka is among the prettiest and most popular girls in school yet is genuinely interested in having an honest and open friendship with Tomoko, her complete opposite. Even Tomoko doesn't get it.



* OddFriendship: Asuka is among the prettiest and most popular girls in school yet is genuinely interested in having an honest and open friendship with Tomoko, her complete opposite. Even Tomoko doesn't get it.

Added DiffLines:

* CovertPervert: Possibly, if his perfect score on his health exam is anything to go off of.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: His drawing skills improve substantially between his first and third years of high school; beginning as [[OnlySixFaces decent but bland and lacking in diversity and expressiveness]] before growing to be genuinely impressive to look at.

* SheCleansUpNicely: While she may seem plain and mousy at school, Kotomi is shown to have a pretty keen fashion sense that gives her a more showy appearance. Most notably, she managed to turn a bathing suit that Tomoko suggested to her as a joke very stylishly at the beach, and dialogue implies she even got some boys' attention with it.

* EntertaininglyWrong: Her belief that Tomoko is lusting after her is borne out of a lot of situations where Tomoko did seem to be acting in a sexual manner. She just doesn't know Tomoko well enough to recognize that Tomoko didn't mean anything by it, and was too nervous to try and clear anything up.

Added DiffLines:

* TransparentCloset: The only person who knows Ucchi and hasn't figured out that she has romantic feelings for Tomoko is... well, Ucchi. This creates some problems when her friends try to coax her into confession, only for Ucchi to then do her usual thing of calling Tomoko a disgusting creep.
