First time Satou shifts into "yandere mode."

  • Satou herself — despite her obvious flaws — stands out as being unique. Unlike most Yandere characters who would respond by murdering anyone they perceived as a target without a second thought, Satou instead relies on playing mind games with her victims, threatening their livelihoods as many people she had come across tend to be even worse than she is. Satou would only use murder as a final resort, something unfamiliar to most characters of that character type.

  • Episode 1:
    • Rather than killing the manager of the Princess Imperial, Satou instead chews her out on her trying to force herself onto an underaged boy (even though this does also come off as hypocritical given that Satou is criticizing her on something she herself had done) and threatens to expose her unless she gives her what's her due for working extra hours.

  • Episode 2:
    • When her homeroom teacher was threatening to harass her, Satou stops him by triggering a safety alarm. The next day, she stomps him repeatedly in the crotch out of disgust for him boasting about desiring more women to be with due to his dissatisfaction with his married life. Once again, a victim is putty in her hands, and she gets him to dispose of the body bags under the threat of informing his wife about his cheating heart ergo destroying his reputation.

  • Episode 4:
    • Episode 4 reveals how much of an utter beast Satou can be when Shio is threatened. At first, Satou lures one of the thugs towards her using her feminine charms, and shocks him with a taser the instant she wraps her arms around his neck. She then hits the other assailant with a bag full of tools, topping this off with gouging both thugs' eyes out. Truly one of the rare instances where you can root for Satou for killing people.

  • Episode 5:
    • After getting (understandably) freaked out by Mitsuboshi's Stalker Shrine dedicated to Shio, Shoko pushes him on the ground and chews him out for being disgusting.

  • Episode 8:
    • Satou killing the original owner of the apartment room in order to protect Shio.

  • Episode 9:
    • While it ends bad for her, Shouko manages to send Asahi a picture of Satou and his sister.

  • Episode 10:

  • Episode 11:
    • Having finally allowed his patience to run dry, Asahi decides to take matters into his own hands, and lures Mitsuboshi to him, forcing him to get Satou's address under the threat of ripping his fingernails off.
    • After deliberately ignoring Asahi's orders, Mitsuboshi arrives to the apartment room, expectant to see Shio...only to realize that it was the wrong room. And Satou's aunt notices that he was "starving for love".
    • Really, the conversation between Satou and her aunt. While Satou accuses her aunt of poisoning her with her views on love, Satou's aunt in turn points out that if her niece was that sure about her capabilities, she wouldn't have needed her — an adult — to assist her with her getaway scheme. Really shows where Satou gets her mind games from.

  • Episode 12:
    • Asahi striking at Satou out of anger at her murdering Shouko.
    • Daichi getting arrested most likely over the circumstances regarding Shouko's death.
    • Shio's mother should receive some credit: after all, her husband's death? Entirely her doing. She appears to return to her abusive husband...only to secretly poison one of his bottles, and he wasn't the wiser.

How well does it match the trope?
