  • BackToSchool: Played with. She's the oldest of the whole team (but not much, somewhere between 18 to 20 years old). She was already a MA-Vess test pilot working for IX, but they make her go through her training all over again, joining Akashi and friends, who are high school students in their first and second years. Enforced with the fact that the uniform they wear as trainees has all the appearance of an institute uniform, making her look like she's at school again.

  • Emotionless Girl: But she gets better in further episodes.
  • Gainaxing: On first episode, during a practice that consisted in dodging balls, she was failing thus, receiving all the shots. During every hit, the animation goes slow and we can clearly see her boobs bouncing as if they were full of water.
