It's not a matter of real or fake. These avatars are idols on the net. in other words - icons. Icons cannot solely exist through their own will. Neither Hayama nor Sugawara established their status on their own. They were able to become Talsiman and Spooky Boogie because their fans idolized them based on their own distorted perceptions. Their true feelings and colors are not the same as the ideals their characters represents. It's not surprising that a fan could do a better job than the real owners of playing the idol the fans expect to see.
Everyone here is the same. They don't notice anything. They don't say anything. And they don't think anything.

This is a disease called serenity - a form of death that people have wished for.
Chastity and grace - traditional virtues that have been lost. They comprise the educational ideology of Ousou Academy. They're priorities that are not valued in boys, only in girls. After having them instilled in us, we're shipped out as brand-name product, refined, sheltered maidens, and purchased by men who seek a classic piece of furniture called "a good wife and mother" in a formality known as marriage. Students in this school are all components that will be processed into an artwork called "the lady". They are rough stones waiting to be polished and finished up. They live sad and boring lives, even though there are many other possible ways they could bloom.
When you entrust so much of your everyday life to those electronic devices, the argument that you aren't a cyborg isn't very convincing. To you, those portable terminals are already your second brain. Isn't that right? It can be said that the history of science is a history of the expansion of the human body's functionality, in other words, the history of man's cyberization. That's why it's a matter of degree.
