Kotone is a fair-skinned girl with long, blonde hair that is worn loose, amber eyes, a well-developed body and she is the tallest of the cast.
She wears the standard uniform of a red tie, a plain white (collared) button-up shirt, and a blue and green plaid skirt. She is more often seen also wearing a beige sweater vest outside than the dark green suit jacket.
Kotone is a very cheerful and energetic girl who likes to have fun and enjoy her high school life at its fullest. She always has a big smile on her face and a bright, positive attitude to go with it. She likes to tease her friends, but she is also kind and caring.
Kotone is particularly close with Shizuku Minami, whom she lives with, and harbors romantic feelings towards her. In fact, the only time Kotone seems upset is when Shinobu Noda tries to force her to go back to her original home. She is usually the one who initiates the kisses and is very flirty. While entirely devoted to Shizuku, she loves to flirt with and tease other girls.
At some point before the series, she moves into the Minami household despite strong opposition from her family and its implied to be for "convenience".
Shizuku is Kotone's cousin whom she has known ever since they were children and they were always very close (Chapter 11). She loves teasing her but remains faithful and it is believed that her love for her cousin is why she left home to escape her arranged marriage.
Shinobu is Kotone's younger sister who dislikes Shizuku strongly that she tries to get Kotone to leave her due to jealousy.
Naruko is Kotone's older sister who is shown to look up to and get along with.
Sora is Kotone's fiance who is a girl that looks suspicious a lot like a young man and she was originally in love with Naruko Noda (Kotone's older sister) that she agreed to their arranged marriage because of Kotone's similarity in appearance, but she eventually calls off the wedding to spare Kotone knowing how unhappy she was.
- Kotone's surname Noda means "field, wilderness" (野) (no) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).
