  • Nice Girl
  • Oblivious to Love: Anna doesn't notice Sou has feelings for her until he flat-out tells her, and even then she initially believes he's lying. They briefly date only because Sou was able to kiss her, but she really has no idea what's going on when they're going out, and they break up and stay friends. It also takes Mashiro to remind her that her first love is Hinata, and she's in denial of it until she gets jealous when she discovers Mochizuki has a crush on Hinata.

Karin is Mochizuki's little sister who joins the art club out of fascination for Hinata.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Karin is introduced and featured in the side-story published in Ribon's sister magazine, Margaret.

  • Stalker with a Crush: Karin continuously follows Hinata to draw him for her art studies.

    High School Classmates 

Nanoka Saeki

Nanoka is Anna's outspoken, often self-centered classmate and the first friend she makes upon entering high school. She is in the Photography Club and dislikes Sou immensely.

Ayane Asou

Ayane is the beautiful childhood friend of Nanoka and Sou's ex-girlfriend from middle school. Unlike Nanoka, she's calm, attentive, and supportive towards Anna. She is in the Photography Club.

Hinata Kazami

Kazami is Ayane and Nanoka's childhood friend and sits next to Anna in class. He coincidentally shares the same phonetic name as Hinata Tokura. He is secretly a manga artist.

  • A Day in the Limelight: The second part of Betsu ni Suki Janai Kedo is told from his point of view.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Unlike the rest of the characters, his eyebrows are more defined.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Used for comedic effect in the first part of the side story Betsu ni Suki Janai Kedo.
  • Hidden Depths: He's a manga artist, but he'd really like it if you didn't tell anyone.
  • Oblivious to Love: He has no idea Nanoka has a crush on him, though it's probably because she's mean to him the majority of the time.
  • Otaku: Nanoka calls him such, since he's a huge fan of manga.
  • Sleepyhead: Justified. Kazami has to meet strict deadlines at his job and keep up his studies, so he has no time to sleep at home.
  • The Stoic
  • Trademark Favorite Food: On his character file, ramen and creampuffs.
