After she is arrested by the police, her mother transfers her to Midorigaoka Academy where she would get to live on her own as a normal high school student on the condition that she would be disowned if she begins fighting again. She aspires to be a fashionable girl, however, she discovers that Midorigaoka is full of delinquents, and that her childhood friend, who got her into fighting and gangs, is now her homeroom teacher. In order to avoid getting caught fighting, she dons a rabbit mask, calling herself "Super Bun" (ウサちゃんマン Usa-chan Man?), and sometimes cross-dresses as a male delinquent "Natsuo" (夏男?), where she wears a wig, a boys uniform from her old school, and platform boots. She keeps these identities hidden from everyone except for Takaomi, although Hayasaka and Okegawa cannot help but notice an intense battle aura around her as well as her battle instincts. Under the handle "Snow", Kurosaki corresponds regularly with a pen pal named "Strawberry Love" using a carrier pigeon which she saved from drowning.

He makes a wager with the chairman of the school that he can double the school's enrollment in three years, but if he loses, he will not be paid for five years. He forms the Public Morals Club with Kurosaki and Hayasaka as founding members.

He and Mafuyu are forced to be founding members of the Public Morals Club. He is also notably good at embroidery that he was recruited by the Crafts club. He kept his personal background a secret going as far as to not reveal his first name. It has been implied that he comes from a rich family but has trouble speaking with his parents, and avoids the topic about siblings. He has a deep respect for both Super Bun and Natsuo, unaware that both are the same person. Later, it is revealed that his full name is Kaori Hayasaka (早坂 香 Hayasaka Kaori?).
- Kyotaro Okegawa (桶川 恭太郎 Okegawa Kyōtarō?)

Aside from a selected few, he is the only one who knows about Mafuyu disguising as Natsuo. He calls Mafuyu Morse (モールス?). Due to a mishap caused by his subordinate and Public Morals Club members, Okegawa fails his final exam and now has to repeat his third year over, while still remaining as the school's bancho.

After a failed attempt in eradicating the Public Morals Club, Yui comes up with the idea of infiltrating the Public Morals Club and taking them down from the inside, thus joining Mafuyu and Hayasaka. Despite his appearances and stoic expression, he proves to be just as much of a goof and idiot as the other two with his love for ninjas.

He knows about Mafuyu's two other identities and her delinquent past. Yui apparently also knows about Hayasaka's first name.

His philosophy was that if there was a strong person that he could stick to, it would solve all problems.

- He is the Student Council president and the son of the School Chairman. He is aware of the true history of Midorigaoka and the bet that Saeki proposes. Despite his feminine looks, he can be quite cunning and is capable of 'enslaving' people with only a stare. Often seen smiling, it is hard to tell what goes on in his mind. It is unknown whether he truly cares for Student Council members as he has them try to destroy the Public Morals Club one at a time rather than simultaneously or working together as a group which make it seems like he's counting on the Club to help the Student Council members overcome their personal issues.

She is a tough fighter, serious and strong-willed. She is, at first, unwilling to believe that Yui had betrayed the President and views him as a traitor because of it. It's hinted that she harbors a crush on Yui. As the appointed clubs supervisor, she stamps the Public Morals Club's papers out of obligation towards Super Bun for drawing attacks away from her during the final day of club inspections and also because she saw the fully completed sheet regarding the club's activities, members, and achievements which eliminated any grounds for her to reject the club.

He is the oldest of two sisters and three brothers and is used to taking care of the house due to their constantly working parents. Due to issues with his siblings, he left home to stay in school dormitory. Mafuyu is the only person other than Miyabi who knows about his "cleaning attacks". When Miyabi saw the attacks, he used the information to blackmail him into joining the Student Council while Mafuyu is willing to stay quiet but has him make bentos for the Public Morals Club since he insists on paying some form of "hush money" to ensure she stays silent.
