** [[spoiler:The Manager of the Princess Imperial]], [[StarterVillain the antagonist of the first episode]], initially [[BitchInSheepsClothing seems to be]] [[spoiler:Satou's BenevolentBoss]]. In truth, [[spoiler:the manager]] is a {{narcissist}}ic AttentionWhore who becomes envious of Satou for being well-received by her co-workers. [[spoiler:When Taiyou Mitsuboshi, a teen boy under her employ, asks Satou out, the manager's ego is so bruised that [[spoiler:she proceeds to kidnap him, lock in in a closet for a whole week, and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rape him]] repeatedly throughout, directly leading to Taiyou's SanitySlippage and [[FaceHeelTurn turn to darkness]]. She also orders her employees to sabotage Satou's work to get back at her for daring to catch Taiyou's attention, and, unlike Satou who ultimately [[AlasPoorVillain dies a tragic death]], the Manager [[KarmaHoudini receives no punishment beyond having to give Satou full pay]]]]. A BadBoss and remorseless [[PedoHunt child molester]], [[spoiler:the Manager]] was willing to attempt to ruin the lives of a young boy and girl in a feeble attempt to maintain power.

** [[spoiler:Mr. Kobe]], the [[spoiler:Kobe family patriarch]] who is [[spoiler:Shio and Asahi's father]] and a major GreaterScopeVillain, stands out as a [[AbusiveParents parental abuser]] whom even [[spoiler:Satou's aunt]] pales in comparison to. [[spoiler:An [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], he spares no love for his wife Yuuna and children, beating them frequently and using them to fuel his unhealthy habits. A flashback would later reveal that he also [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped his future wife]] because [[DisproportionateRetribution she accidentally pushed him]], celebrated the death of his own father because it left him with a big inheritance, [[ParentalAbandonment left his wife and son]], and only came back after spending all his money. It is no wonder that Yuuna ran away with Shio, and Asahi [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing rejoiced when he died]]]]. A truly nightmarish abuser, [[spoiler:Mr. Kobe]] undoubtedly deserves to be called a demon by Asahi.

Added DiffLines:

* DiesWideOpen: Poor Shoko.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath:
** Satou Matsuzaka shares several of the characteristics of a textbook sociopath such as her cleverness, manipulation tactics, and an artificial charisma to mask her true self. However, what prevents her from truly falling into this is her genuine love for Shio.
** The Manager of the Princess Imperial has a bloated sense of importance, so much so, when Mitsuboshi asked Satou out on a date, she responded by kidnapping and raping him for a week as a way of rectifying that.
** Asahi's father is a low functioning example of a sociopath who wastes no time with wasting the money he received from his inheritance to spend it on his hedonism. He lacks empathy for anyone he hurts, having raped his wife when they first met after she accidentally bumped into him.
** The two thugs that nearly beat Asahi to death for no other reason than ForTheEvulz. After beating Mitsuboshi up, they decide to use Shio as bait to lure Asahi to the park so that they could resume beating him up.


* MoralityKitchenSink: The characters from this series operate on many different levels of morality and sanity. The main character is a VillainProtagonist {{Yandere}}, but also an AntiVillain with a sympathetic past. The other major character is a child that is portrayed as the epitome of innocence, but suffers from an AmbiguousDisorder that may be the reason why she is still innocent. Other characters include antagonists who are just as depraved as the VillainProtagonist but much less sympathetic; a boy who becomes just as mentally unstable as those guys but remains self-aware enough to try (and fail) to change; another boy that is fundamentally a NiceGuy but is seriously traumatized; and a perfectly normal girl that serves as the OnlySaneMan of the series.
