!!This comic provides examples of:

* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:Of Jinji, apparently, or at least flashbacks. It turns out that as of 2015, [[http://e.walla.co.il/item/2821898 he and his classmates are already adults with children of their own.]]]]
* AllMenArePerverts: Well, not everyone. Asher was afraid of sex in one story, Nir is a narcissist and Tzachi only cares about eating. But that's often the general feel of the comic
* AllWomenArePrudes: When this was pointed out to Uri, he created Sivan, a GoodBadGirl
* AlphaBitch: Maya is the Class Queen
* AmusingInjuries: and "Zbeng!" is a very common sound effect
* AnimalTalk: in thought-babbles, Garfield-style

* NotSoDifferent: ‘Atsanya bat-Simkhon, a recurring character who is basically Sigal, only a far-right-winger instead of a far-left-winger. When Moti tried to introduce them, they were both ComicallyMissingThePoint, seeing the other as a CardCarryingVillain they share nothing with.

* LethalChef: Yosepha's cooking is probably Asher's greatest fear, as he doesn't have the heart to tell her it can actually put him in the hospital. One ImagineSpot addressed a popular FridgeLogic, showing what would happen if he took the advice to let her try her own food: she would get a HeroicBSOD at the horror of having put him through that. Outside of the imagine spot, Asher says he doesn’t do it because he loves her.

* TwoDecadesBehind: A reader once commented on the clothing the teens wear being somewhat outdated. Fink explained that it’s somewhat inevitable, saying that if he tried to go to schools and draw the students’ clothes and take notes he’d ‘spend the night in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AbuKebir027.jpg Abu Kabir]]’.
