Super High School Level Seinen MangakaNo one truly knew who famous mangaka LACE was for quite some time, besides the fact that she was feminine based on her pseudonym and her mannerisms online—and even that was debatable. An obscure persona for such a staggeringly popular status seemed pretty odd, which led to many speculations. After theories ranging from a low-life insomniac hikikomori to a whole team kept under one name, many didn't expect LACE to literally live up to her girly name.The odd mangaka Ai Kimoto started off uploading fanart, 4komas and miscellaneous sketches until she began to develop her own characters and build them up into a small series of her own, eventually becoming published on Weekly Young Jump—all under the alias LACE. Her popularity spiked online on her blog and pixiv, especially among high school boys, when her first and main series Double-Edged Rebound won the Manga Taisho Award when she was fifteen. Many were drawn by the mix of a detailed and stylistic art style and fell head over heels for its gritty characters and their designs. Now that her real name is released alongside the news of her acceptance into Hopes Peak, only now is she becoming a little more open towards her fans online.

Super High School Level Multi-InstrumentalistThe half-Japanese APKALLU was born to one of the most famous Norwegian black metal musicians in the history of the world and a Japanese business executive - a higher up in a big-name instrument manufacturing company. From birth, APKALLU has displayed a remarkable aptitude for playing any instrument they got their hands on, and an equally remarkable aptitude for staying out of the public spotlight despite frequent displays of their proficiency on piano, guitar, drums, or Really, anything. At first billed as The Prodigy Child Of Tokyo-Oslo, their real name has been kept from the public in order to help them keep away from the pressures of early stardom. That didnt last long, however, as soon they came out with their first album under the moniker APKALLU, called MANIFOLD, to rave reviews for the technical complexity of the compositions of the songs as well as the utter skill required to play the songs. Having written and performed the entirety of the album only makes the mystery of APKALLU more intriguing - as well as their particular presence on social media. They are one of two victims in Chapter 4, stabbed in the face by Chou Nakahara, effectively breaking their skull.
- Shout-Out: APKALLU receives Keita Yamaguchi's (DA4O) glasses from the Item Machine.

- Inelegant Blubbering: When discovered as the Chapter 4 culprit, they slip into a semi-poetic and confusing rant, rambling and generally putting the other students in the trial off quite awkwardly.

Being that she has French background, the term 'mon chou' means 'my cabbage', or 'mon chouchou' which essentially means 'my pet'. Chou wears green themed outfits, and cabbage is usually green. This makes her name somewhat of a play on words.

From literal breakdancing to waltz to even square-dancing, hes done it all. Sure, watching an attractive dude and a cute dog in themed outfits dance to a good song is pretty good, but their skill and bond is undeniable.

Super High School Level PhilosopherIt came as a surprise to nobody when the only son of a well-reputed leadoff hitter and a Hopes Peak endorsed doctor was invited to the school, but when most hear Genta Sugais rise to fame came in the form of a twenty-one yen e-book online, it comes as a bit of a shock. 'The Finite Possibility', written under the pen name Phi, rose to underground literary acclaim within the span of a week across the world and succeeded in reviving conversation surrounding the philosophical side of possibility in several universities across Japan.In spite of his affluent lineage, however, Genta himself is said to be a bit of an enigma; reporters seeking personal accounts of his person have found descriptions of the author to be just as varied as his subject matter.

At Adachis insistence, the show focused not only on backbreaking working conditions, but also the dark underbelly of the international king crab trade.

Super High School Level Art CuratorThe Orikasa family-owned art gallery had kept the small town of Nakata alive with its tourist revenue for over a century until one day, its elderly owner fell sick, sending the long-time cultural landmark into a deep financial decline. Right when all hope seemed lost, the owners teenage granddaughter Sarara took over operations, not only managing the gallery but using the expertise shed acquired from her grandparents all her life to promote art history as a genuine curator.

Super High School Level Personal AssistantHopes Peak Academy is renowned for selecting their pupils from only Japans best and brightest: it is the norm to find the names of up-and-coming athletes, actors, and scholars, among the list of incoming transfer students. But every now and again, someone appears on the roster who seems to be virtually unknown by the world at large. Sosuke Nakazawa, the personal assistant to the president of Oishi Consumer Finance Co., is just one such example of such a student. Searching for his name yields no pertinent results online, but then again, its hardly surprising to learn that someone with a title like that would be mostly absent from the public eye. Personal assistants mostly work behind the scenes, taking minutes, making appointments, keeping track of finances and travel arrangements perhaps the fact that there is no news about Sosuke Nakazawa simply means that he has been doing his job exceptionally well.
