** Asuka is a genuine example, being friendly and easy-going towards practically everyone, even if they mistreat her. Indeed, most "negative" choices she can pick are InnocentlyInsensitive at worst and she tends to backtrack quickly once she realizes it. [[spoiler:Choosing to withold Kaede's envelope from her in her bad end is probably the most "negative" of her choices, but even that one is born out of a genuine desire to be in a relationship with her and she feels terrible about it.]]

She seems like the [[spoiler:perfect little sister, but actually has erased Asuka's memory countless times and wants her all for herself]], though accepts Asuka ending up with other girls in the other routes. She also says pretty violent things on occasion, [[DissonantSerenity but always does so cheerfully]]. [[spoiler:Kaede]] is more of an understated subversion, as she is pretty nice even outside the mask she wears at the nursing school, and it depends on whether you see her bad end [[spoiler:as her cheating on her girlfriend or as a consensual open relationship between all parties]].

* AmnesiacLover: Asuka [[spoiler: and Sakuya]] were in PuppyLove when they were children.

* BookDumb: [[spoiler:Kaede's good ending]] averts and possibly even reconstructs this by having Asuka become the top student of the class despite her immense stupidity. All it took was the proper tutor that was willing to work at her pace instead of the class'.



* ChickMagnet: Itsuki often has girls around her who very obviously adore her. Asuka becomes one at the end of Kaede's route, having become a model student and giving a speech in front the entire school gains her a good number of girls who want to take pictures with her.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: [[spoiler:Kaede's route]] and most of the common route are a lot lighter than the others, only hinting at all the messed up things going on rather than pointing them out. Notably, the spoilered route branches off well before the other three split to avoid a particularly dark moment.


* TheDitz: Asuka is this at best. It's a miracle that she got into nursing school even with Nao helping her study.



* MythologyGag: There is a poster of the previous game in the series, ''Hakuisei Ren'ai Shoukugun'', in the dorm Asuka and Nao live in.
* NewOldFlame: [[spoiler:Sakuya]] is this to Asuka. [[spoiler: [[AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder Sakuya was initially introduced to be dating Itsuki.]]]]

Neither does Dissociative Identity Disorder[[note]]The creation of a second personality in an incredibly stressful situation, which in this case would be [[spoiler:the laboratory catching fire, killing Sakuya, and nearly killing Kyoko]], and is ''incredibly'' controversial due to a variety of reasons.[[/note]], which is the only other possible cause.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDividual: Machi and Michi, whose character traits are solely that they speak everything at the same time and are always together, which impresses Asuka. Even the one time you don't hear the two talk at once, they're still in the same area - Machi's relative's house in Switzerland.


Added DiffLines:

* ShooOutTheClowns: Machi and Michi are completely forgotten in every route but Kaede's.


* PairTheSpares: If you go into Sakuya's route, Itsuki and Nao start to "see each other more often". If you choose Nao's route, Itsuki and Sakuya will continue to date each other.

This is mostly due to Kaede being unhappy until she has developed a relationship with Asuka while the other girls are friends with Asuka in every route. Since Kaede is the instructor, she doesn't get the chance to be casual friends with Asuka unlike the others.]]


** This trope also comes into play near the end of [[spoiler:Kaede's route. If Asuka chooses to give the envelope containing Kaede's ex girlfriend's love letter, knowing they might get together again as Asuka feels she can't possibly measure up to her, Kaede will choose Asuka and merely say her goodbyes to her ex. If Asuka can't bring herself to show it to Kaede, she will get back together with her girlfriend and the relationship between her and Asuka will turn purely physical.]]
