Main Characters

    Mizuno Takahiro 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/23265.jpg
Voiced by: Seiichirō Yamashita (anime)

Takahiro is the protagonist of the story, a begleiter who was formerly a talented knight who retired after an injury and being discard by his teacher. His grades aren't particularly notable, but he gains interest within the student body after guiding a normal student to a victory over an upper middle ranked knight. However, even before this he had been approached by several prominent knights who asked to work with him


  • Above the Influence: When Ayako gets drunk to drown her weird feelings of jealousy regarding Takahiro and Ely, she eventually wanders into the living room wearing nothing but a see through nightgown. Takahiro is kind of turned on but mostly freaked out when she basically pushes him down and kisses his cheek.
  • Accidental Pervert
    • Takahiro wanders into harem romcom world on accident at one point in Ayako's route, managing to not only walk in on her naked but also somehow slip and end up grabbing her breasts.
    • He also gets wacky pervert hijinks when Anne pushes him and makes him trip, sending him diving right in Bertille's crotch. If Bertille wasn't an idiot, nothing would have come of this though, but she pins his head between her thighs and refuses to let go so he won't see her underwear. Which he already did and didn't care about.
    • When visiting Akane's family, Takahiro is invited to take a bath. Soon after, her mom sends Akane in under the mistaken impression that their relationship would have progressed that far at least. They're not even dating in the first place at this point. If Akane had stayed calm nothing would have happened, but she panicked and dropped her towel.
  • The Ace: Takahiro is known by his friends at least to have been an excellent jouster, but he usually doesn't want to talk about it. However, his reputation precedes him and both Celia and Noel request for him to be their begleiter. Even as a knight he can still provide a decent match to Celia, even managing a victory in their second match.
  • The Beard: Akane's mom invites her back to Japan and tells her to bring her 'boyfriend' Takahiro with her so she can see her grandma, who hasn't been feeling well. Akane doesn't correct her misunderstanding since she's worried about her grandmother, leading to wacky hijinks for all.
  • Character Development: In Celia's route she actually already has a pretty stable personality so instead Takahiro learns to embrace jousting again, often serving as her practice partner in addition to her begleiter. He even starts to stand up to Julianus and reconciles with him as a result, becoming a full knight again in the epilogue.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: He doesn't get particularly angry about it, but it turns out the reason Takahiro declines Celia's request is because he thinks her desire for him to be her begleiter is insincere. He assumes that she probably just feels bad for him since her brother is a dick. He doesn't want to work for someone that wants him for those reasons, but if he clears up the misunderstanding he agrees to work for her easily enough.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Both Takahiro and Mio refuse to accept praise for their abilities. In Mio's case it's because she's genuinely modest, but for Takahiro it's partially because he just holds himself to very high standards. When Akane, Kyle and Bertille hear his disappointment that his practice performance was 'only' at the level of an A or upper B rank knight after being out of practice for years, they say he must have been a real monster in the past.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: Takahiro used to be an excellent jouster, but an injury and the loss that accompanied it made him quit. In the present, it's not the injury that keeps him from getting back into jousting but rather that his former teacher was a huge prick. During a practice spar with Celia, he does well enough to amaze Akane and Lisa, though he himself notes that his performance is quite below where it used to be thanks to being out of practice. At the end of her route, he decides that he'll eventually become a knight again with Celia's help and a year later is occasionally able to score points off of Julianus.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Takahiro finds it very difficult to believe that Celia actually respects and values him rather than simply pitying him, which is a belief that Julianus tries to reinforce. It's not necessarily romantic in nature, but it is partially so. Once their relationship does advance his worries are left behind, however, and he'll even stand up to Julianus' attempts to make him feel unworthy.
  • Master of the Mixed Message: Takahiro says a lot of things to Lisa that could come off as flirty and are taken as such but are generally not actually meant as such.
  • Oblivious to Love: Akane seems mildly amused when Takahiro says he isn't popular. To be fair, setting aside Mio, just being friends with girls and having them interested in you are not really the same thing. Though she could simply know about girls that we don't see.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: According to his friends, Takahiro's emotions can be tricky to read, so they really want to see him go deredere just once. When he finally goes deredere, it's not for his girlfriend Noel. No, it's for her little sister and her sheer imouto aura.
  • Taught by Experience: Takahiro makes an excellent begleiter because he knows how knights think and behave, having been one himself. If he takes up jousting again, his experience as a begleiter also improves his jousting.

    Kisaki Mio 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27324.jpg
Voiced by: Ai Shimizu

Mio is the first friend Takahiro made after moving to wherever the hell this story takes place. Though apparently born and raised there, the Japanese name indicates her recent family were immigrants. She's very bright and friendly. Unlike the other heroines, she has no connection to jousting at first, but after accidentally getting herself into a duel with Bertille she's thrust to prominence after her amazing growth results in a clean victory.


  • But Not Too Foreign: Mio is English by nationality and presumably birth, but her name indicates that her family must have have been Japanese immigrants recently enough to still give her a Japanese name. The other girls are genuinely foreigners though apart from fellow immigrant Akane.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: About twenty minutes after Takahiro tells Mio he's thinking of returning to jousting the rumor has spread across the entire school.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: At first glance, Mio would seem to be suffering from an inability to confess. However, as time goes on, it becomes clear that she's genuinely uninterested in doing so and is entirely supportive of any of his other relationships well before they even begin.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Mio is a love interest. She was the first friend Takahiro made when he moved to this country.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Mio and Celia are both quite popular, though neither realizes it. Mio is simply oblivious while most people are too intimidated by Celia to make a move on her.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: She can cook competently, but she also wants to experiment and tends to mix together things like chocolate and rice balls or adding wasabi to everything.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Animals like Mio just as much as people normally do, which Takahiro realizes is advantageous when it comes to teaching her how to joust within a very short time period. She understands what the horse wants and can easily match herself to it.
  • Giftedly Bad: Mio keeps confidently experimenting with new cooking even though it's always a disaster.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Both Takahiro and Mio refuse to accept praise for their abilities. In Mio's case it's because she's genuinely modest, but for Takahiro it's partially because he just holds himself to very high standards.
  • Important Haircut: Mio cuts her long hair just to avoid the small chance that it will interfere with her duel with Bertille. She wants to show how serious she is about the match even if it's the only one she'll ever be in.
  • Lethal Chef: Takahiro doesn't want to start eating until he's sure Mio didn't cook the food she brought him. However, this isn't because she's bad at everything, but only because she's fond of experimenting but has no sense whatsoever, so she does things like put wasabi inside of sweets or chocolate inside rice balls.
  • Nice Girl: Mio is very kind and social, so even people like Lisa have a hard time turning down her requests.
  • Out of Focus: Mio stops directly interacting with Takahiro for much of Lisa's route because she doesn't want to make his girlfriend jealous. She still appears in a few crowd scenes, but most of the scenes where she'd have appeared are generally filled in by Kyle or Akane. Noel pretty much disappears entirely after awhile.
  • The Rival: After Mio defeats Bertille in a duel, the latter cheerfully claims Mio as her rival. Mio says she isn't even a knight and not much more comes of it.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Mio is very bright and cheery.
  • Sakura Girl: Mio has long pink hair, a bright disposition and the character for Sakura in her name.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Mio's hair is bright pink.

    Celia Cumani Aintree 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27325.jpg
Voiced by: Kei Mizusawa

Celia is the strongest knight in the academy as the only S ranked jouster. She's also the student council president, extremely popular and a member of a prominent noble family, though she has few confidants. She is the younger sister of Julianus, Takahiro's former teacher, and thus has met him briefly on a few occasions. Takahiro catches her interest and she asks him to be her begleiter, an offer he has some difficulty accepting because he's unclear as to why she actually needs a begleiter at all, let alone one with no particular accomplishments to his name at the time she asks.


  • The Ace: Celia is considered the undisputed top of the academy, though new student Lisa is also considered to be at least near her level. What the group considers perhaps most worthy of praise, however, is that Celia kept a straight face after apparently eating one of Mio's experiments.
  • Adorkable: Celia is always very serious and composed, which can come off both cute and funny when she's talking about stuffed animals or trying and failing to eat soba 'properly.' She also talks to the characters in children's movies. Takahiro is more interested in watching her than the film.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Mio and Celia are both quite popular, though neither realizes it. Mio is simply oblivious while most people are too intimidated by Celia to make a move on her.
  • The Comically Serious: Celia's serious side doesn't turn off when she talks about the greatness of teddy bears, it only makes her more passionate.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Celia flips out over anything to do with bears. She even learns from Mio how to make sweets shaped like bears but can't bring herself to eat them since she thinks they're too cute.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Akane practically worships the ground Celia walks on. It's not really romantic in nature but Akane's sheer fangirling of everything about her is something to see.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Celia collects stuffed animals. It jars a little with her mature image, but she's surprised at Takahiro's surprise.
  • Instant Expert: Takahiro is oddly impressed with Celia flawlessly using chopsticks the first time she eats soba noodles. Instead, she finds it difficult to make the proper slurping sounds when eating them.
  • Obliviously Beautiful: Celia doesn't get much romantic attention because people are generally too intimidated to make an attempt, so she's largely unaware that most people consider her extremely attractive.
  • Princess Curls: Celia definitely has them, though they may less noticeable than on Bertille.
  • Static Character: Compared to some of the other characters like Lisa, Akane or Takahiro, Celia never really changes much because she already has a stable, positive personality as well as the proper attitude towards jousting and competition.
  • Student Council President: Celia, among other exemplary traits, is the president of the student council and considers it natural to have the entire student body memorized.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Celia always looks so serious, but she squees over teddy bears and with utter seriousness and devotion prepares omelet rice with a cute little heart mark in the center for Takahiro.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Celia has no ulterior motives for wanting to watch the bear movie with Takahiro. It would just be a waste if he returned it without even watching it.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Celia is generally capable of crushing her opponents with sheer speed and strength. People are very surprised to see her using feints and more complex tactics with Takahiro as her begleiter.

    Noel Marres Ascot 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27326.jpg
Voiced by: Eriko Nakamura

Noel is a middle ranked jouster with deceptively strong skills, a clever mind and an attitude that encourages high risk high reward strategies. Like Celia, she asks to work with Takahiro before he becomes popular for defeating Bertille with Mio. When asked why, she explains that she failed early in the tournament the year before because her begleiter failed to properly care for her horse and she didn't either, so she was impressed at how well Takahiro takes care of his own horse. She also finds it really fun to tease him.


  • Almighty Janitor: Noel is one of the better knights in the academy, but her inconsistent play and intentionally mediocre rank leave her relatively obscure. While she's A list in terms of ability, she stays at rank B in order to avoid family attention.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Noel is an odd example. She wants Takahiro to appreciate Mio more and realize how much she does for him, but also gets jealous when she hears that he would sleep together with Ayako (minds out of the gutter!) when he was ten.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Noel likes using tricks and feints. In her duel with Celia, she even tricks Celia into committing a foul and then tricks her the next round by not attempting any tricks, catching the now wary Celia off guard.
  • The Gadfly: Noel really likes teasing people, especially Mio with her really obvious crush or Takahiro and his flustered reactions.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Noel covers it very well, even urging Takahiro to appreciate Mio more, but she's actually nervous of his relationship with not just her but also Ayako. Of course, she could just be a really gloomy drunk.
  • Lethal Chef: Noel can't cook, but she's genre savvy enough to know that that means she needs help if she wants to make breakfast for Takahiro, so she asks her little sister for help. As she gets better at cooking she stops needing to rely on Mireille so much, who was cooking about 90% of the food before.
  • The Ojou: At one point Takahiro notes to himself that Noel is probably rich given that jousting is a rich man's sport, but not much mention is made of the wealth of the girls most of the time. It turns out that her family actually has higher status than either Bertille or Celia.
  • The Runaway: When Noel's father drags her aside to tell her that she needs to stop jousting and dating Takahiro, Mireille tells Takahiro not to give up on her even if she treats him coldly. Apparently she doesn't know her sister very well because the next day she shows up Ayako's restaurant with a change of clothes. Noel may be many things, but a doormat is not one of them.
  • Secretly Wealthy: Takahiro assumes that Noel must be fairly wealthy if she's in the knight class, but she actually has an even bigger mansion than Celia, whose family is quite prominent. She's almost royalty. That said, this turns out to be status and not actual wealth. Her family is somewhat on the decline, though not to the extent that her family has any notable debts or anything.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: In a manner of speaking, given that becoming a begleiter and becoming his knight's boyfriend always seem to be roughly the same thing for Takahiro. Noel requested Takahiro as her begleiter even though those like Kyle have better grades because she sees him take excellent care of his horse every morning and get excellent results out of it in exchange. Given that she lost in the first round of the tournament the year before because her horse wasn't being cared for properly, this quite impressed her. She directly compares the experience to Love at First Sight.
  • Smug Smiler: Noel has multiple smug grinning trollfaces.
  • The Tease: Noel is quite the tease, enjoying harassing girls and flirting with Takahiro equally. How serious she is is questionable: She does seem to like Takahiro, but assumes he's dating Mio and isn't one to steal other people's boyfriends. Further, she's pretty easy to tease herself, much to her annoyance.

    Lisa Eostre 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27327.jpg
Voiced by: Hiroko Taguchi

Lisa is a sullen first year girl who rejects the idea that she needs a begleiter at all. Despite this, she's considered a genius when it comes to jousting and is one of the strongest knights of the academy despite being a first year student, most of whom have little experience and thus do poorly against upperclassmen. Against her objections, Reina tries to convince her that she needs Takahiro's support or she won't be able to grow as a knight.


  • Berserk Button: Lisa hates being treated like a child. When she is, she tends to react pretty childishly.
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: Lisa absolutely loves spicy food and assumes everyone else does as well, so she enjoys Mio's disastrous experiments. When she makes lunch for Takahiro, she brings out a bottle of tabasco sauce for the sandwiches, which are already practically glowing red with all the spices in them.
  • Character Development: In Lisa's route, she realizes she really is limited by trying to do everything alone and learns to work with Takahiro as a true partner, even coming to understand that the even more jerky Fiona is not dissimilar to how she was not long before and probably needs her help.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Lisa hasn't really cooked before, so when Takahiro realizes that she made him lunch and obviously made it very spicy he's terrified at first, but after the initial shock he finds out that it's actually pretty good. It may simply have better balance than the spicy experiments that Mio comes up with, which generally involve adding hot sauce or wasabi to things that they absolutely clash with.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Lisa is more the classic tsundere than the modern kind. While she starts off pretty hostile to Takahiro, as she grows closer and learns that he genuinely means well and can be trusted she warms up to him. She's still a little prickly, however, given that she's sort of childish.
  • Demoted to Extra: Lisa rarely appears in More&More. Her few appearances generally relate more to her friend Ely because she isn't a friend of Takahiro's and has little reason to talk to him. Celia also doesn't show up much, but then she didn't show up much in the first place apart from her own route.
  • Eyelid Pull Taunt: Whenever Lisa wants to let someone know that she definitely doesn't care about what they're saying no sirree or Fiona pressures into it, she'll pull down her eyelid and go Akanbee~ at them.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Lisa's hair is always in two simple twintails.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: In Lisa's route she and Takahiro go through the haunted house together at the school festival. To be fair, they both do very poorly here.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Lisa is held back by her unwillingness to have a begleiter. Without a partner to correct her strategy, she's limited to only her own observations and strategies. Even setting that aside, she treats her horse like a tool and drives it rather hard as a result. This isn't a problem in single matches, but it tires the horse and leaves her relationship with it more distant than it should be. It also leads to rather one sided losses in tournaments against Takahiro's knight in other routes.
  • I Resemble That Remark!: The moment Kyle calls Lisa childish she starts sulking. Real mature.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Lisa may be prickly, but she adores the stray cat she named Sasami. Contrasting her, her jerky friend Fiona actually seems to be afraid of cats.
  • Only Friend: Lisa makes friends with Mio and to a lesser extent the group surrounding her, but Fiona remains linked to Lisa alone. Even setting aside her new friends, Lisa is also close to Reina, even if Fiona doesn't like her.
  • Serious Business: Lisa takes building sandcastles really seriously. Fiona is happy to chat for once but Lisa has a look of grim determination on her face and refuses to talk to anyone lest it affect her concentration.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Lisa is talented, but her stubbornness and inability to depend on others makes it easy to see through her strategies.
    • In Celia's route, Celia has some trouble with Noel but walks all over Lisa in the finals because she's always so predictable.
    • In her own route she loses to the greatly inferior Reina because while skilled, she's unused to opponents at her own level and is unused to having to predict their actions, which makes her performance even worse.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Lisa isn't very social, so she tends to be quiet and rather aloof sometimes.
  • Tsundere: Though normally rather cool and polite, Lisa reacts poorly to Takahiro and is more hostile towards him. He's not really sure what the problem is since he didn't know who she was before her match with Akane and after it barely spoke two words to her. She also doesn't want to admit that she was worried about Mio after she was challenged to a duel. Takahiro isn't the greatest at picking up tsundere signals even though it kinda seems like she wants him to notice without her having to say it.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is white.

More&More Heroines

    Akane Ryuuzouji 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21346.jpg
Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame

Akane is one of Takahiro's close friends and one of the few A ranked jousters. She's strong, direct, honorable and stoic. She has her own begleiter in the original story, but in More&More her begleiter is forced to transfer due to her father's career. Like Takahiro, she's a Japanese immigrant. She greatly admires Celia and wishes to someday be able to match her.


  • Breakout Character: Akane was very popular in the original game and probably should have been one of the heroines to start with. As such, the fandisk is largely built around her.
  • Character Development: After spending a lot of time with Takahiro in her home town she gradually opens up to him and starts to really trust him.
  • Characterization Marches On: Unlike in previous routes, in her own when she comes up against the clearly superior Celia she becomes demoralized and loses easily, leaving her in a slump afterwards. Before, she wouldn't have been that concerned about it.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: In Akane's route, Takahiro is much calmer, but Akane is even worse with horror than Lisa and is scared even before they actually get started, flinching when Takahiro merely speaks to her and dashing for the exit when Takahiro gets hit with a classic haunted house scare. He didn't even scream or anything, but she still panicked.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Akane is Celia's number one fangirl. In her ending she grows out of it after successfully managing a tie against her idol.
  • Miko: Akane's family runs a shrine, but her older sister tends to take care of rituals for the most part. Akane is still used to wearing the clothes and taking care of tasks like cleaning the shrine, however.
  • Not So Stoic: Akane is always calm and serious unless she needs to fangirl Celia, at which point she'll worship her intention to try to break an egg.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Her hair is clearly supposed to be black, but it's actually a shade of dark purple.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Akane always dresses modestly and wears pretty much the only armor that isn't custom built to show off her breasts, but she ends up dragged into a beauty contest during Celia's route where she's busy dying of embarrassment on stage while Bertille hams it up and Celia just kind of sails through things with her normal dignified attitude.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Akane's attacks are direct, powerful and accurate, but they're also too easy to read. If Takahiro devotes himself to defense, she's absolutely unable to score any points off of him. During her rematch with Celia, she and Takahiro agree that she shouldn't even bother with any kind of tricky strategies since she's just so unsuited for them.
  • The Stoic: Akane is always rather calm and serious, even when joking around. However, she tends to fangirl around Celia and turns into a motormouth when trying to confirm if Takahiro is really dating her. She gets embarrassed if anyone sees her doing anything girly or soft since she wants to be seen as calm and collected, which appears to be an attempt to contrast herself with her sister.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Akane isn't unfriendly, but she does tend to be slightly aloof from her friends because she won't ask for help and has oddly formal speech. When she and Takahiro inevitably start dating, she's pretty mushy, which is especially effective on Takahiro given her normal stoicism.
  • Sweet Tooth: Akane likes cakes and whatnot, which normally wouldn't stand out. However, she freaks out when she realizes Takahiro and Lisa saw her buy one, considering her desire for normal sweet food to be disgraceful.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In terms of sheer physical ability she's near the top, but she doesn't use feints or misdirection even with Takahiro as her begleiter.
  • The Worf Effect: Akane is used as a sort of measuring stick. She's in the upper ranks of the A rank jousters and is thus someone that is often used to test the ability of those like Noel or Lisa. In her route, however, she actually manages a tie against Celia, doing better than almost anyone that ever goes up against her.
  • Working Through the Cold: Akane hides that she has a cold during the tournament preliminaries. She still wins easily, though later she feels bad about not trusting Takahiro enough to tell him.

    Ayako Hiiragi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21347.jpg
Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi

Ayako is Takahiro's cousin, though he treats her more like a big sister and she sometimes mothers him. She's both a teacher at Winford and runs a local cafe during her spare time, which also employs Mio as a waitress. Takahiro boards at the restaurant. She's a former knight and in her route supports Takahiro's decision to return to jousting.


  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Ayako gets uncomfortable when Takahiro spends time with girls like Ely, though she tries to hide it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Ayako is Takahiro's cousin, but functions more as a protective big sister figure. He finds her sort of scary, though.
  • Green-Eyed Epiphany: Ely always flirting with Takahiro makes Ayako uncomfortable even as she says that she has no reason to interfere. At some point she runs out of ways to fool herself.
  • Kissing Cousins: Ayako was Promoted to Love Interest in the fandisk. She's his cousin, is viewed as an older sister figure and occasionally mothers him.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Ayako seems to fill in most of the job related roles for the story. She's the single teacher we actually see, she's the school nurse and she runs the local cafe Tart Time after hours. Apart from that, she also takes care of Takahiro. When she does she sleep? This does become a minor plot point: The irregular hours Tart Time has to operate under keeps it from turning any kind of real profit.

    Bertille Althusser 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21348.jpg
Voiced by: Ryoka Yuzuki

Bertille is a walking ojou stereotype and her conflict with Mio sparks the plot of the story. However, despite this, she's actually a very kind and noble person, even if she lacks dignity. She's attended by her friends Anne and Emma, who act as her begleiter and support.


  • Celibate Heroine: A lot of the people around Bertille assume she's unwilling or unable to get a boyfriend. Her friends joke that she'll be alone forever while her parents are overjoyed to hear that she actually did get a boyfriend.
  • Gag Boobs: Bertille's ridiculous chest is the subject to occasional jokes.
    • D-Cup Distress: While proud of her appearance—not unjustifiably, given her bordering-obsessive concern with it and the compliments she does receives despite not being Celia—Bertille tends to freak out at the slightest exposure of her chest, like when her shirt is partially pulled up during the sports festival, and admits as much to Takahiro in her route.
  • Graceful Loser: Bertille accepts her defeat calmly, noting that even if she had been letting her guard down a loss is a loss. It would be ignoble to pretend otherwise and an insult to pretend it was merely bad luck. When she learns that Mio isn't even in the knight class she's considerably more embarrassed, but she still comes to the party to celebrate Mio's victory.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Bertille is hard working and talented, but despite the long hours of training she puts in she generally never matches up to the likes of Noel or Lisa. However, her route indicates that while she puts in a lot of work, she doesn't spend her time efficiently.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: No matter how much her two assistants joke about it, Bertille never realizes that her armor has a really embarrassing design. She also fails to realize the problem with being lifted up into a tree while wearing a short skirt.
  • Large Ham: Bertille is silly and overly dramatic about everything, but since she's generally a nice person people don't really mind.
  • Nice Girl: Takahiro is actually amazed at how nice Bertille is. She refuses to rise to the Fiona's bait and calmly accepts her sarcastic 'compliments' and 'apologies.' When Fiona tries to be more direct, she just smiles and says she has her values and Fiona has hers. In More&More Fiona is nicer than in the original game but she's still completely unable to handle Bertille's benevolent attitude.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Takahiro dies a little inside when Bertille actually goes Ohohohoho!
  • No Indoor Voice: When Bertille thinks she's laughing quietly, her voice reaches across the entire campus. Also, whenever she gets excited she begins talking very loudly, generally causing some accidental innuendo in the process.
  • The Ojou: Bertille gets standard silly ojou speech patterns and even does the ojou laugh, much to Takahiro's consternation. In the fandisk she gets her own rival Alice and they have ojou fights together.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Bertille is either in the upper ranks of the B group or even an A rank jouster, but Celia is an S rank, Lisa is a genius, Noel is intentionally underrated and Akane is good enough to make Celia work for her victory. As such, it's really hard for her to stand out unless we're talking about how embarrassing your armor is to wear. More&More indicates that this is an issue based in her well meaning but ultimately incapable assistants and the inefficient training she undergoes. However, she's never given the chance to go up against any named character apart from Alice in a real match so it's hard to say how good she actually is with proper instruction.
  • Princess Curls: As a ridiculous ojou, Bertille gets to have ridiculous ojou hair. Her hair is also invincible, able to repel water and gravity alike.
  • Renaissance Man: Bertille has a surprisingly wide - and random - range of abilities. She can cook and play tennis at semi professional levels, but can't swim. She's highly knowledgeable about various types of food, but has never eaten a crape. Her conversations with Alice also imply a further range of abilities that she never gets a chance to show off, which comes to the surprise of everyone, especially Anne and Emma.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Bertille is always beautiful, but when dressed up Takahiro is surprised that actually looks cute, which changes her image quite a bit.
  • Stripperiffic: Bertille's armor only covers her upper body and her legs, which from the perspective of weight and covering what is likely to actually be hit is rather efficient in a way... but it also leaves her thighs rather exposed for everyone to see, which the announcer comments on. One of her lackeys takes pride in how only Bertille can shamelessly wear such embarrassing armor.
  • Supreme Chef: Bertille is an amazing cook, so she can't help laughing to herself when she hears that Takahiro's knight will be chosen by a cooking contest. After all, there's not much else she could hope to beat Celia or Noel at.
  • Tsundere: In More&More she's a bit more prone to denying she likes certain people or things. However, it's more often Alice that brings this out than Takahiro.

Other Characters

    Kyle L. Albright 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/21350.jpg
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono

Kyle is Takahiro's apparently sole male friend his own age. He's implied to be a better begleiter than Takahiro, but as he's mostly interested in raising a strong knight from the ground up he doesn't expect to do particularly well during the upcoming tournament. He's quite prone to theatrics.


  • Large Ham: Kyle is always overly dramatic. His friends have given up on reacting to it.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Kyle is often referred to as a begleiter equal to or superior to Takahiro, but he doesn't get the chance to stand out very often because he prefers to work with students that have a lot of untapped potential, meaning they don't perform particularly well in the tournaments even after he firmly guides their growth.

Voiced by: Chiemi Chiba

Fiona is Lisa's jerky jerk friend. She's even more antisocial than Lisa. She's not a very good influence on Lisa, urging her stay alone and rely only on herself, yet picks fights that she has Lisa fight on her behalf. In More&More her personality was mellowed out such that people don't want to punch her in the face as soon as she opens her mouth.


  • All Take and No Give: Fiona basically wants to run Lisa's life for her with just the two of them alone together, regardless of what Lisa actually wants or needs. When Takahiro questions her about this at one point, she ignores him.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In the epilogue for Lisa's route, Fiona has also mellowed out. She also kind of proposes a threesome with Takahiro.
  • False Friend: Fiona only stays near Lisa to steal her techniques. After a practice duel where Reina was about to beat Lisa, she decided she had learned enough and instantly betrayed her, publicly humiliating her by using her own techniques against her when she was emotionally shaken by getting her big sister hurt.
  • Hate Sink: Fiona is thoroughly unlikable. Fortunately, you're not supposed to like her. She's cowardly, smug and quite cruel. Also, she betrays Lisa, so you can't even say she meant well. But then she gets a redemption scene and gains a crush on Takahiro, so whatever.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Near the end of Lisa's route, Fiona gains a crush on Takahiro. Yeaaaaah that's not gonna happen. It doesn't even happen in either of the fandisks.
  • Ineffectual Loner: She's even more isolated than Lisa. It's shown to hold her back when her begleiter tries to give her some advice but she simply yells at her supposed partner for bothering her.
  • Jerkass: Fiona is kind of a dick to everyone but Lisa, and even then she's not exactly nice to her either. She tries to monopolize Lisa's time and overrule her opinions, sabotages her relationships, taunts the very kind Bertille and is generally simply unpleasant to everyone for absolutely no reason. There's also the implication that she simply picks fights with other students so that Lisa will defeat them in a duel on her behalf. It's actually worse than that: Fiona picks fights so she can steal Lisa's techniques.
  • Nice Hat: Her signature white beret.
  • Passive Aggressive Combat: Fiona makes some rather nasty backhanded compliments at Bertille, who is generally too gracious to stoop to her level. Or too oblivious.
  • Satellite Character: Fiona is Lisa's obnoxious, bratty friend and little else. If the story isn't focusing on Lisa directly then she simply vanishes from the story without a trace. In More&More she's more of an independent character and has other friends.
  • Smug Smiler: Most of her smiles look quite unpleasant.
  • Smug Snake: Fiona is awfully arrogant for someone with no abilities of her own. She's actually been stealing Lisa's techniques, so she isn't actually that weak, but as everyone important points out that just makes her a bad copy of Lisa.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Fiona is less evil in the fandisk, even going so far as to ask Takahiro to be Lisa's begleiter. This contrasts greatly with her original personality, which may be the influence of Ely, who wasn't around in the original story. As a result the two actually seem like friends.
  • Troll: Fiona does her best to piss people off so she can start fights. Surprisingly enough, Bertille manages to absolutely shut down her attempts, frustrating her in return.
  • Tsundere: In More&More she's more tsundere than outright jerkass, generally being protective and teasing more than outright hostile.

    Reina F. Avery

Voiced by: Asami Imai

Lisa's other prominent friend and a big sister figure. She asks Takahiro to be Lisa's begleiter against her objections. She's also Celia's only apparent friend.


  • Cool Big Sis: Reina is effectively Lisa's big sister, though the relationship has a few snags thanks in part to Fiona.
  • Only Friend: Celia is rather isolated at school. While everyone admires her, her only friends are Reina and potentially Takahiro. As such, she's generally uninvolved with the events of other routes because she just isn't close to anyone in the group.
  • Satellite Character: Reina is more defined by her relationships with Celia and Lisa than anything else. Without them, you just have a vaguely nice, fairly attractive third year girl with no particular goals, abilities or outstanding points.
  • Shipper on Deck: Reina really supports Lisa and Takahiro.

    Mireille Marres Ascot 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27329.jpg
Voiced by: Noriko Shitaya

Mireille is Noel's little sister. She was paralyzed from the waist down after an injury that occurred after falling from a horse. A corrective surgery apparently fixed the problem, but for some reason she's still unable to walk. She's extremely kind and polite and has an overpowering imouto aura that makes everyone want to adopt her.


  • The Cutie: Everyone who sees Mireille wants to take her home and make her their little sister instead.
  • Disabled Means Helpless: Mireille is wheelchair bound and is generally treated like she's not capable of doing much. What she thinks of such treatment isn't entirely clear given how polite and kind she is, but she does have to point out once that she's capable of wheeling her chair to her own room in her own house once.
  • Ill Girl: Mireille, Noel's little sister, is unable to walk following an injury. However, she actually already underwent a successful surgery to fix the issue, so no one is quite sure why she's still unable to use her legs. Either way, Noel intends to full her promise with her: If Mireille underwent the surgery, then Noel would win the next tournament.
  • Little Sister Heroine: Mireille is so well behaved, kind and cute that everyone wants her for a little sister. She actually starts referring to Takahiro as her onii-sama even, causing him to spoil her rotten.
  • Shipper on Deck: She's immediately and completely supportive of her sister and Takahiro together and looks forward to having him as an older brother.
  • Throwing Off the Disability: At the end of Noel's route, Mireille finally manages to stand up again because of course she does. Even though Noel lost, she was inspired by her courage to keep going even at a disadvantage.
  • Tragic Dream: Mireille wanted to become a knight, but she lost the use of her legs.

    Julianus Cumani Aintree 
Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi

Julianus is Celia's cold big brother and Takahiro's former teacher. He's very focused on victory, so after Takahiro lost a match due to a leg injury he walked away and never looked back. He's one of the strongest jousters in the world.


  • Aloof Big Brother: Julianus is always rather cold and distant and doesn't seem to be very close to his sister as a result. After she and Takahiro defeat him in a joust, though, he realizes they're dating and shows that he is protective of her, having conflicted feelings about someone taking away his sister even when it's someone whose ability he recognizes.
  • Competition Freak: Julianus is obsessed with victory at all times and cast Takahiro aside after he lost due to an injury. Takahiro doesn't buy into this philosophy anymore, but he still feels it was his fault somehow. Celia lacks this attitude and criticizes her brother for it, though he cuts her off. His attitude towards Takahiro isn't quite as hostile as it seems, however. While he did cast Takahiro aside, he was waiting for Takahiro to stand up as a knight on his own.
  • Evil Is Petty: Julianus is annoyed by Takahiro's 'bad influence' on Celia despite her actually encouraging him with her normal attitude, so he alters the tournament so that the winner is granted the 'honor' of facing off against him in an exhibition match, having already threatened consequences if Celia fails to win all her matches in the tournament. And it's not even that he's being overprotective of Celia, but rather that she had the nerve to organize a separate, unofficial tournament after he altered the school's normal system.
  • Insufferable Genius: For all his irritating snobbishness, Julianus really is the best jouster around, able to easily break both Celia and his own weapon repeatedly, a very difficult feat that most people aren't even aware was intentional.
  • Jerkass: Celia's brother Julianus is obsessed with victory and cast Takahiro aside after a single loss. The first time he sees him after abandoning him he simply says "Oh, you still exist huh?" What a charmer. Celia is rather upset to see what a dick he is.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Julianus is angry at Takahiro for acting as Celia's begleiter, though he doesn't realize they're dating. When he does finally figure it out after Celia's surprise victory, he can intellectually support the idea since he had shown his approval of Takahiro years ago but emotionally it's still difficult.
  • Odd Name Out: Most of the names are English with a few French names, but Julianus is a Roman name that hasn't been used in a long time. The proper descended form in England would be Julian.
