CutenessProximity: Ultimate Sweetness has this effect on the adults at the school around her, including on Az.
* DirtyOldWomanDirtyOldWoman: The ObaSan Az meets have reached a stage of life where Japanese politeness is [[ScrewPolitenessImASenior no longer the limiting factor it once was]] and are much freer about speaking their mind, which for some of them includes rather frank assessments of someone's sexual desirability.

* ScheduleSlip: As mentioned in the intro, the blog has been suffering through a bad case of this recently. This is due to him not having much time to write, what with his job and family, as well as him admitting to not be as bewildered by Japanese culture anymore.

In June 2010, the blog switched names to the "Gaijin Chronicles". It has been going through ScheduleSlip, as there was a hiatus of ''four'' years from [[http://gaijinchronicles.com/2012/01/06/happy-2012/ January 2012]] to [[http://gaijinchronicles.com/2016/02/06/im-back/ January 2016]]. Updates will likely remain scarce.

* MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow: Azarel discusses this trope once. He believes that part of the perception of this is that Japanese in general approach foreigners with fewer of the cultural constraints that come between them, and aggressively compared to how foreigners approach each other.

-->[[http://gaijinchronicles.com/2010/06/10/line-theory// "Ysee, the Japanese LOVE lines.]] Like, if you could make the concept of lining up into a human being, otaku guys would marry the DS game which simulates lining up for things."

* {{Arson Murder and Jaywalking}}: After a girls' dodgeball game Az was watching unexpectedly turned from timid to violent, he said if he was in a house and had the choice of facing "a group of Japanese girls in K-Groove [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]] berserker mode" downstairs or "[[Franchise/ANightmareonElmStreet Freddy Krueger]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]], the masked guy from the ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' movies, Franchise/{{Predator}}s, Franchise/{{Alien}}s, and Music/CelineDion singing the ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' song" upstairs, hed go upstairs and take his chances, because hed actually have a remote chance of coming out of it alive.

-->'''[[http://gaijinchronicles.com/2007/03/06/pump-it-up/ Azreal:]]''' As Ive stated numerous times, Im a big black guy. 63 (190 cm or so), 200 pounds. The Japanese take one look at me and see a man who can break them in half. I wouldnt necessarily say that this is a Japanese thing, a lot of cultures will think twice before picking a fight with a black dude twice their size.

* {{Meganekko}}: [[http://outpostnine.com/editorials/picture2.html Ms. Americanized]] is a subversion. She ''looks'' like a Meganekko, but she's pretty much the opposite of a ShrinkingViolet, having gained her nickname in part from being outspoken and vulgar even by American standards.

* CoolVsAwesome: One English class where Az asks his students to roleplay ends up with "BarackObama" meeting "[[TwentyFour Jack Bauer]]". All parties agree this is something that needs to happen in RealLife.
