She indeed likes to bully her Senpai, but perhaps hides her feelings while she bullies him. Nagatoro is a Popular, Athletic, eccentric, and sadistic person. Even though she usually appears to be a sadist, deep down she is a very sweet person.
Gamo-chan (VA: Mikako Komatsu)
Gamo chan is one of Nagatoro’s friends. She appears to be the most mature among Nagatoro’s group. She acts like a big sister to them.

Yoshi (VA: Aina Suzuki)
Yoshi is a member of Nagatoro’s group. She usually follows Gamo-chan around and with her schemes. She is not that bright but she has a strong follower mentality which why she’s always stuck around with Gamo-chan most of the times
Sakura (VA: Shiori Izawa)
Sakura is the art club president. She has long fair hair with crimson eyes. Her personality may be a bit shameless and stern yet serious, yet she treats Senapi with respect unlike Natatoro
