I think that looking at her different behaviour as a different or fake persona is a wrong approach to Tsukasa. What she does is to show different sides of herself depending on the circumstances. Notice that, even after Junichi found another side to Tsukasa, she could still show him her nice side, even when they were speaking alone.

She's basically choosing when and to whom she should show other aspects of herself. So, in my opinion, saying there's a fake Tsukasa or that she's merely putting up an act instead of being herself (whatever "being yourself" may mean anyway) is a huge misunderstanding of her character. Borrowing a quote from another story - and using it in a rather different context - you could say "Tsukasa is one, yet she is many".

You bag this one right, her personality is similar to mine.

Kind of reminds me of Ami-chan doing the many impersonations Taiga wanted her to do. I think I agree with you. Cause personality is formed by being habits that are done over and over again that it becomes an inner part of self. So her many faces are parts of her whole personality. Again the Kare Kano reference that even Yukino dropped her perfect image, she still studies a lot, and still comes early to school, and still kind to her classmates even after she was ignored by the whole class.

There are different types of truths and lies. A person can make a statement that blatantly contradicts the truth. A person could say nothing and hide the truth. A person could make a statement that's only half-true and hide important part.

It's true that Ayatsuji's class rep persona isn't an outright lie. She does care about her work. However, it's only a half-truth, because she does hide that meaner side that she only shows to Junichi.

It's not necessarily a bad thing, because every professional needs to know how to act towards others in different situations and levels of formality. Ami, the model from Toradora is the same way. Call her a ***** all you want, but it doesn't change the fact that she knows she can't show her arrogant queen personality in front of the camera because it would be the death of her career. Ayatsuji is the same way. Just because she's not nice in informal situations doesn't make her formal manners any less considerate. It's just separating a person's professional work life from his/her private life. Ayatsuji is doing well with her work, but she has problems with her private life.

dang. For some reason I came into this arc expecting to dislike Ayatsuji.

But she's growing on me. I kind of like her different personality shifts, the sudden tone change really gets to me.

She's kind of crazy though...

Great Episode I am really finding Tsukasa's personality interesting, and I liked at the end shown with her thinking to herself
Also I realized how much Tsukasa reminds of another character that Nazuka Kaori[her VA] did, namely Shizuku from Kampfer .

I think the reason why Ayatsuji is a little distant to her sister is because she's like dealing with another Haruka. Same air-headedness and love of dogs. Maybe the sister of Ayatsuji is the long lost sister of Haruka. Lol.

I think they are just siblings who don't get along very well.

I think they are step siblings, or somehow not actually sisters

They look alike so much. I think they are at least step siblings.

First two eps of Tsukasa's arc were better than I thought they'd be. Hopefully the rest of the arc stays decent. Though I won't hold my breath on that.
