Roman Saotome (早乙女 浪漫, Saotome Roman) is a frequent visitor to the Sket Dan who loves old-fashioned shōjo manga. She won an honorable mention for her manga Sudden Temptation in the Betsumar shōjo magazine.


She has brown eyes and long black hair that grows past her nape and shoulders. She has side braids. For her uniform, she wears a pink beret.


Roman's drawing

Roman acts very much like a typical shōjo protagonist and often breaks the fourth wall to narrate her own life. She is overall very cheerful and willing to lend her help to others, though her unique brand of help isn't always effective. Though she loves shōjo manga and is a senior in the Manga Club, she is comically horrible at drawing and her storylines often make little to no sense.

Major Story Points

The Prince of the Hill

Gachinko Vivage Battle

Special Abilities

  • Otome Filter (乙女フィルター): A perspective which allows Roman to see the world in a typical shōjo art style. As a result, everyone and everything looks prettier than it is in actuality and even a bedraggled Pelollipop towel can appear to be a wet puppy. Often the Otome Filter appears with a gauge that can be increased to make even the ugliest person look handsome, as with Tadokoro during the Gachinko Vivage Battle. Additionally, she can use the Otome Filter to manifest elaborate backgrounds and scenery (castles, old French towns, etc.) which others can see and experience.


  • Bossun: Roman refers to him as "my prince" and he once saved her from being hit by a truck. She might have a schoolgirl crush on him, though it is not expanded upon much. She breaks the 4th wall by saying her character is made to be girl that fall in love with Bossun.


  • In Katakana, Roman means "romance."
