Kurisu has been nicknamed a pure and petite "Princess", known for her frank and un-sugarcoated manner of speaking, although at times unrefined. While she comes off as uptight to most, she is actually quite weak to criticism and is easily moved to tears, and she makes sure not to show this weak side of hers to others. She exerts great effort into becoming a goddess, and has actually managed skip grades and become the top scorer among the first years during the entrance exams. She is also very stubborn and determined, always seeing things she's decided on until the end. Rather than being stopped, she ends up forcing those around her to go with what she has decided on, even although oftentimes her efforts end up being fruitless; a consistently lovable klutz. Kurisu does have a playful, childish side to her, at times loud and haughty, but she does not mean ill to anyone. She can also be embarrassed easily, and can get quite shy at times.
