** The series aired on Creator/TVTokyo and they don't allow panty shots, their censorship standards have been kinda strict since 1997



** The picture hanging on the wall in Ichiro's host club (featuring an ever-changing assortment of stylized people in various sexual positions) is especially notable because it had to be censored in the Japanese broadcast.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A large number of the villains are parodies of celebs or political figures from Japan. The BigBad is an Expy of [[spoiler" Junichiro Koizumi, the prime minister at the time the show came out]]

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Hideki gets annoyed at Ichiro for treating Pandaikon as this in the first episode, insisting that a normal person would at least go [[BigWhat "Waaa!"]] at seeing a panda in a daikon field. It's also parodied/enforced in Episode 4, when the Nerima Daikon Brothers deliberately ignore Yukika's DramaticEntrance for as long as possible.

* DawsonCasting: Hideki's voice actor in the Japanese version, Shigeru Matsuzaki, stands out particularly because apparently it was his first role in ''twenty-four years'', and the man was pushing at least ''sixty'' years old while trying to play a twenty-five year old character.
** As usual, this is in full effect for pretty much ''everyone'' in the English dub, though not to that extreme.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Moreso in the English dub than in the Japanese

** Creator/ChrisPatton is Ichiro
*** Ichiro's Japanese actor is Showtaro Morikubo, a guy who's got a pretty long résumé even if it doesn't contain too many super-popular characters (he was Ginji in ''Manga/GetBackers'' to name one role)
** Creator/LuciChristian is Mako
** Though he's not a prominent actor, Brett Weaver returns to play Nabeshin for the third time (at this point, ADV had turned the fact that Weaver had essentially become the "official" English voice for Nabeshin into a RunningGag)
* HostClub: Ichiro works at one.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Most of the English episode titles contain sex jokes.

[[caption-width:300:The main characters of ''Nerima Daikon Brothers''. From the left: Mako, Hideki, and Ichiro (no, not the pandas).]] ''Nerima Daikon Brothers'' is about three struggling would-be musicians, Ichiro, Hideki and Mako, who dream of becoming a famous R&B act and building a huge domed stadium where they play sold-out shows night in and night out that also carries their namesake. In the meantime, they run a daikon (radish) farm in Nerima Ward (famous for its daikon harvests) while trying to fend off creditors, their neighbors, trespassers, and Mako's unmitigated greed.
