Added DiffLines:

* AffectionateNickname: Akemi and Gorou refer to him as "Jun-bo"/"Jun-boy".


* WouldntHitAGirl: Though when Misuzu and/or Carol get on his nerves he's not above stealing their hair accessories, shoving them into the rain, or flicking them on the forehead. (though when he flicked Misuzu's forehead it had enough force to make her recoil like she'd been punched). Tomo is, naturally, a special case; after one arc where he finally starts noticing her as a woman, he thinks to himself that he'll never be able to hit her seriously again.

* WouldntHitAGirl: When Misuzu and/or Carol get on his nerves the worst he'll do is steal their hair decs (though he did once flick Misuzu's forehead; given how tough he is it had enough force to make her recoil like she'd been punched).

* AmbiguouslyBi: There have been a few hints that her feelings for Tomo are not entirely platonic. That said there have also been small hints that she may have feelings [[spoiler: for Jun]]. Page/Chapter 389 is titled "The Place I Can Never Be" and has Tomo and Jun Hugging while Misuzu watches and it's not clear what or for whom she has a melancholy reaction to. [[spoiler:The flashback shows that she ''did'' like Jun, so it's likely that she wanted to be close to both of them. Later in the manga, Jun offhandedly admits that he loved her too, however brief their relationship was.]]

* DidntThinkThisThrough: When [[spoiler:Jun broke up with her, she assumed that Jun was aware that she knew that he was dating her for selfish purposes. However, in Chapter 845 it's shown that this was ''definitely not the case'', and that he has operated ever since under the assumption that Misuzu has always been mad at him for breaking up with her, this being the main reason why he never tried to pursue Tomo even when he loved her back then. That is, Misuzu erroneously thought that Jun has as little respect towards her as she herself has towards him.]]

** In Chapter 883 it's shown that, unexpectedly, Misuzu is a romance movie fan, even going as far as remembering how many times the main couple kisses on-screen (7 times, she'll have you know!).

** As shown in Chapter 847, even though they've been at each other's throats ever since they met, it's apparent that [[spoiler:Jun]] has a well deserved place in her heart too, just as Tomo does.

* {{Irony}}: Of the three main male characters, Tanabe was, for the longest time, the only one that openly and often expressed romantic interest for his girl. However, his love is the only one where the feelings didn't end up mutual, and in taking the initiative is the only one who drives his girl away rather than closer. By comparison, Misaki and Jun [[spoiler:know about their girls' feelings the whole time]] and were passive up until they couldn't avoid it anymore. Both are successful in the end.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Tomo and Jun's [[spoiler:RelationshipUpgrade]] hits Gorou so hard that he is too depressed to exert his usual HighPressureEmotion when Akemi tries to talk about with him.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBeautifulElite: Alongside Carol and Tomo, they're collectively the most attractive girls at class, and at school at large.


Added DiffLines:

* TheCutie: Misuzu is small, dainty and delicately beautiful.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBeautifulElite: She comes from a wealthy family and she's a profoundly beautiful girl.

* {{Bishonen}}: Played for laughs. She ''looks'' like one at first glance, to the point that the girls that first meet her think that she's a '''strikingly''' handsome boy... until they realize that this dude is rocking a healthy, plentiful bust and a sculptural body. She's so handsome that [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer some of said girls do no let go of that crush]].

Added DiffLines:

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Akemi often acts as the interface between her outright eccentric dojo master husband and society at large.


Added DiffLines:

* HenpeckedHusband: Downplayed, but it is clear that Akemi raising her voice is something that intimidates Gorou more than... pretty much anything.

Added DiffLines:

* RejectionAffection: No matter how many times Misuzu says no, Tanabe will not back down. For what it's worth he does eventually give her space.


* CantCatchUp: Played with. This is what animates Jun's side of his friendship with Tomo after her casual feats broke his confidence. However, it's clear Jun ''has'' caught up to and surpassed Tomo in terms of strength, but he refuses to see it for himself.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritedCompetitor: She honestly regards not treating any opponent or challenger seriously as an act of terrible disrespect. There are many at school who [[CurbStompBattle would prefer the disrespect]].


* BerserkButton: While Tomo gets angry at many things, the one thing that will TRULY piss her off is harming or threatening her friends.



* TranquilFury: Tomo's anger is usually of the loud and explosive variety, but when she's at her most furious (see BerserkButton above), she is calmer, quieter, and SEVERAL times scarier.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: One of the kindest people in the manga, [[BerserkButton his fury is triggered]] by seeing Carol in what he assumed was a vulnerable state and it takes both Jun and Tomo to keep him at bay (not to mention his total change in facial expression).

* KillingIntent: Tomo criticizes his fighting style by saying his ''lack'' of this is what's holding him back, despite him being technically proficient. When he stumbles onto Carol and Mizusu taking off their clothes after they got dirty, his mistaken belief that they'd been molested is what [[BerserkButton sets him off]]. It's strong enough (although still deeply hidden) for Gorou to take him seriously.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:He extended the courtesy of asking Gorou to allow him to date Tomo and was rewarded with a challenge: defeat Gorou in combat and he'll allow it]].


Added DiffLines:

* YouKeepTellingYourselfThat: Invoked twice over the same incident. When Jun and Misuzu first met, Tomo took them to climb the couple hundred stairs to the local shrine. Jun had to climb them on his own, while Misuzu was carried on Tomo's back; as Tomo reached the peak first, Misuzu considered this an intellectual and physical victory over Jun henceforth because she didn't have to climb anything, she was in constant contact with Tomo, and she "arrived first". Years later, when they were both in middle school, Jun and Misuzu once again visit the foot of the stairs, and Misuzu reminds him of her "victory" over him. When Jun tells her that she didn't "win" over him, she invokes the trope verbatim:
-->'''Misuzu''': You keep telling yourself that.
