Added DiffLines:

* SeniorYearStruggles: Yukari is a senior who is focusing solely on her studies and getting into a good university. This monotony changes when she falls in with a group of design students who introduce her to the world of fashion, and she begins to consider it as a serious career path after high school instead of her original plan


* BiTheWay: Even though George is in a relationship with Yukari, he and Seiji seem to have chemistry. Kaori seems to hint this when she talks to George saying " You have a girlfriend... and a boyfriend too." Pretty much spelled out when one of George's art school friends expresses surprise at Yukari's existence, as she thought he was gay. He corrects her saying he is actually bisexual.


* BerserkButton: Call him by his birth name. Better yet, call Isabella by her birth name.

* BeautifulAllAlong: {{Subverted}}, Yukari was always a natural beauty but was always too busy hitting the books to notice.
* DefrostingIceQueen
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: She's just that beautiful.
* ImportantHaircut
* LoveMartyr: Though it's mainly out of severe inexperience with love itself. She gets over it.
* TheMasochismTango: Her relationship with George.
* MsFanservice: George of all people even lampshades it.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Suffers from this when she introduced to the hairstylist Seiji.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Played straight with Hiro, [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys subverted]] when George enters her life, [[spoiler:but played straight again when she chooses Hiro in the end.]]
* WhenSheSmiles: She's introduced with a scowl and a bad temperament. Skip about three or four volumes and be struck with awe at the difference.

Her status is actually lampshaded by George, who calls her the group's mother figure.
